Xubuntu 17.10 Brings a Refreshed Xfce Experience and Latest Software Updates

During the six-month development cycle, the Xubuntu team decided to update the appearance of the official Ubuntu flavor based on the Xfce desktop environment and designed for low-end computers or PCs from ten years ago. As such, client side decorations (CSD) were updated to use less space when using the Greybird GTK+ theme. Besides a new wallpaper that adds a “refreshing touch of green” like the Xubuntu devs like to say, there’s new monochrome, mimetype, and device panel icons including in the elementary-xfce icon theme, and the GTK+ toolkit was upgraded to version 3.26, which offers support for Unicode 10.0.0 and color Emoji.
