Linux News Today: Lubuntu-Based LXLE 14.04.4 "Posh Paradigm" Linux OS Coming Soon with New UI
The development team behind the Lubuntu-based LXLE Linux distribution have announced the general availability of the RC (Release Candidate) build of the upcoming LXLE 14.04.4 release.
Dubbed Posh Paradigm, LXLE 14.04.4 promises to be a great release that brings all the cutting-edge GNU/Linux technologies, along with a new user interface to its dedicated users.
Best of all, it would appear that the major changes prepared by the LXLE team for the next major version, LXLE 16.04 will, in fact, be implemented in the soon-to-be-released LXLE 14.04.4 version.
“So instead of backing tracking, the distribution tippy-toed to the edge with the latest LXDE core to bring the features necessary to implement the new LXLE user interface the ‘Posh Paradigm’,” developers have explained.
And this move is one of the best the LXLE team could have done in the entire history of their GNU/Linux operating system, as users will have now all the features that were planned for the next version.
What’s new in LXLE 14.04.4 Release Candidate
The Release Candidate build of LXLE 14.04.4 is built around the latest LXDE desktop environment core, and adds better light-locker settings, slims the Games section, and implements only one desktop paradigm.
Additionally, it resolves a cache bug with FireFTP, updates and revamps Fehlstart, and removes Conky from the base install. Of course, the SeaMonkey and Chatzilla implementations have received numerous enhancements as well.
Those of you who want to help the LXLE devs polish the final release by removing potential glitches from the upcoming distro, can do so right now by downloading the LXLE 14.04.4 Live ISO images for either 64-bit or 32-bit computers.
As for the future LXLE 16.04 version, the team said that they are planning on removing ClamAV (Clam AntiVirus) to make the size of the Live ISOs smaller, but it remains to be seen if users want a virus scanner installed by default or not.
