Peppermint 8 Respin-2 的最新版本是 Peppermint 8 ISO 镜像的安全更新，包含对Meltdown和Spectre缓解措施。
All updates as of 3rd February 2018 are included in the ISO image.
The ISO now comes with the Meltdown/Spectre mitigated 4.13.0-32 HWE kernel ‘out of the box’.
The ISO now comes with the Meltdown/Spectre mitigated Chromium web browser version 64.
Fixed a bug that was stopping flash content playing in SSB’s due to the option to ‘always allow flash’ being removed in recent versions of Chromium/Chrome.
Fixed a bug where when a user chose to tell xdg-open to remember which application to use for magnet and mailto links in Chromium, the settings were lost when the browser was restarted.
