Linux Lite 4.2 Enters Beta Based on Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS, Here’s What’s New

Based on the Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS (Bionic Beaver) operating system, Linux Lite 4.2 isn’t the major update everyone was waiting for, but a minor, incremental update that brings various small improvements to the Lite Welcome app, an updated Help Manual that will be available in the final release, as well as updated components. The Linux Lite 4.2 beta is powered by the Linux 4.15 kernel (Linux kernel 4.18 is also available) and ships with up-to-date apps including the Mozilla Firefox 62.0.2 “Quantum” web browser, Mozilla Thunderbird 52.9.1 email and news client, LibreOffice office suite, VLC 3.0.3 media player, and GIMP 2.10.6 image editor.
