How to upgrade to Linux Mint Daily Builds

Today we are looking at a hidden gem that the Linux Mint team revealed in their March Newsletter.  It is that Linux Mint created a way for us to receive a daily build of their Mint version which is under development, currently version 19.2.  They do warn us that it can be unstable, as it is a daily build, but if you make regular snapshots with Timeshift than you can always revert back to a working state if the updates break your system.  Enjoy!

Commands Used:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linuxmint-daily-build-team/daily-builds

sudo apt update
sudo apt dist-upgrade
