A preview of LXQt 0.10.0
The main highlights of LXQt 0.13.0 release can be summarized as:
  • All packages are ready for Qt 5.11.
  • Out-of-source-builds are now mandatory.
  • libfm-qt is made more self-sufficient and less dependent on libfm, resulting in better performance and more flexibility.
  • qps and screengrab have been moved to the LXQt umbrella.
  • Improved overall translations.
  • Made menu-cached optional (default=off) in panel and runner to prevent memory leaks and to avoid problems when restarting or shutting down LXQt.
  • Improved LXQtCompilerSettings.
  • Our (upstream) configuration defaults were moved to /usr/share/lxqt, distribution’s overrides can be placed into /etc/lxqt
