How To Test

Install using the spin, netinstall or DVD. Or upgrade from older release. Then users should be able to test by doing any daily work.

User Experience

Users of live media will now see lxqt-archiver instead of ark as the default compress/decompress tool. For all users there will be a better user experience and some more alternative themes available to choose from.


This update is pretty self contained and has been mostly finished in Rawhide.
