Linux News Today: Manjaro Linux LXQt 15.09 Now Available for Download, Powered by Linux Kernel 4.1 LTS
We’ve announced earlier the release of the Manjaro Linux i3 15.09 and Manjaro Linux LXDE 15.09 community editions, but in this article we will inform you about the release and immediate availability for download of Manjaro Linux LXQt 15.09.
Apparently, the release notes are pretty similar to the ones of the Manjaro Linux LXDE 15.09 community edition, mostly because the distributions are created by the same team and share approximately the same features, core components, and applications. Please note that Manjaro Linux LXQt 15.09 comes as a free upgrade for Manjaro Linux LXQt 0.8.13.1 users.
Being based on the Manjaro Linux 15.09 (Bellatrix) computer operating system, the Manjaro Linux LXQt 15.09 release inherits many of its features, including Linux kernel 4.1.8 LTS, the greatly improved Manjaro Settings Manager tool, support for the AUR (Arch User Repository) software repo of Arch Linux. Of course, many of its apps have been updated to their latest versions available at the moment of writing this article.
“The Manjaro Community is proud to present our new Lxqt Edition. Manjaro-Lxqt aims to be light, fast and resource friendly, yet at the same time complete and ready to use for all typical everyday office- and multimedia-needs,” reads the forum announcement. “This release comes with our advanced graphical installer Calamares as well as our CLI-installer. Stable branch was used to create these install medias. Iso 32 bits is cd-size and 64 has multilib enabled.”
