A small bump to mention I have released ST Mint 1.2
The biggest change is that now there is a working unix shell,the MirBSD Korn Shell, the same shell which ships on Android Phones.
After booting on a 4MB ST, there is still one megabyte of RAM available. Enough to play the klapauzius adapted Defender of The Crown !

And if you want to play on FreeMiNT, all the HD adapted games that I tested from http://klapauzius.net/ work, except the builtin memory snapshoting feature.
From the PP HD adapted games, the 4 or 5 I tested would not start.

After booting ST Mint on a 4 MB ST, you have 1MB Free RAM, so you cannot play games which require more than that. Enjoying Defender at The Crown at the momment !

Small Bump Up I have now version 1.3 with the following changes:

Fundational:
add Minix git repo as submodule, based on Minix 3.1.8 release, so we have an large source of unix tools producing smaller binaries (50% of GNU coreutils)
rebase on Freemint 1.19 3146e5dc snapshot

Features:
add grep, and term, a serial communication program, from Minix 3

Bugfixes:
use TOS serial driver instead of FreeMiNT serial driver so that we have working serial port communications

As always, download is available from https://subsole.org/st_mint

So FWIW I released a new version, 1.4.
Main changes are:
- use the GEMDOS FAT driver instead of FreeMint XFS FAT driver to workaround a FreeMint / Teradesk interaction problem
- a nice desktop background
- uses FreeMint snapshot from April 2022
Detailed changelog in https://github.com/EmmanuelKasper/mck/wiki/Roadmap

As usual you can download ST Mint from https://subsole.org/st_mint
