Linux Mint 11 is out!

Linux Mint 11 "Katya" was just released yesterday and some of you would probably like to know how to upgrade your system to the release version of Katya.  Depending on how well you stay on top of updating your system, it is entirely possible that you've already updated your system out of the release candidate stage.  For those of you wanting to know how to do it though without having to lose all of your information formatting and reinstalling Linux Mint 11, I'd like to just tell you what is involved in updating your distribution.

If you started a while ago and have Linux Mint 11 RC and want to update to the final release then all you have to do is go to Administration -> Update Manager.  Now install updates for all level 1 or level 2 application.

You'll probably have to do it twice to install the two sets of updates below:

After that, you're done.  You now have the appropriate packages for the release of Linux Mint 11.
