Linux Mint has released a new version that is based on Debian Linux instead of Ubuntu, which is also based off Debian. This means faster releases and better hardware support.
The new release is based on the Debian Squeeze (Testing) build, has GNOME as the desktop environment, and is only available in a 32-bit version. Depending on demand there may or may not be a 64-bit and/or KDE version released in the future. For more information see the FAQ attached to the blog post linked below.
