LXQt 1.0 Graphics Environment Released

After six months of development, the user environment LXQt 1.0 (Qt Lightweight Desktop Environment) was released, developed by the joint development team of the LXDE and Razor-qt projects.

The LXQt interface continues to follow the classic desktop organization, bringing a modern look and feel to enhance the user experience. LXQt is positioned as a lightweight, modular, fast, and convenient continuation of the development of the Razor-qt and LXDE desktops, incorporating the best features of both shells.

The code is hosted on GitHub and licensed under GPL 2.0+ and LGPL 2.1+. Builds are expected for Ubuntu Prebuilt (LXQt is offered by default in Lubuntu), Arch Linux, Fedora, OpenSUSE, Mageia, FreeBSD, ROSA, and ALT Linux.
