Julien Lavergne has released the next Alpha 3 of lubuntu.
The Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 is now available. It is build with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is still in Alpha state of development, so same warnings: "Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs." We passed Feature Freeze, that mean most of the features should now be available. It's now time for testing and fixing bugs.
New features since Alpha 2 :
* Main changes in the seed :
- chromium for the browser
- gnome-mplayer for the videos
- network-manager for the network
* pcmanfm2, the rewrite of the file-manager, is now used by default.
* New artwork made by Rafael Laguna.
* A new session (Lubuntu-Netbook), which launched lxlauncher. You need to logout, select Lubuntu-Netbook session instead of Lubuntu, and enter login "ubuntu" without password.
* If you test on a USB, the first screen will freeze for a moment when you click on "Try Lubuntu ...". Just wait, it will continue as normal.
* Bug reported during testing :
* Specific pages for pcmanfm2 bugs :
If you want to create a bootable usb system, please use the usb creator directly on Ubuntu.
