Much of our talk about Ubuntu 14.04 LTS on Phoronix is in regards to the default Unity-based desktop given that it takes the largest share of *buntu users, but for the Xubuntu 14.04 LTS release this week there’s several interesting changes for this Xfce spin worth noting…
The Xubuntu team is pleased to announce the release of Xubuntu 14.04 Beta 1. This is the first beta towards the final LTS release, and with it we have landed a lot of new features and improvements we’ve been preparing since the last LTS release two years ago. The highlights of this release include: Light Locker replaces XScreenSaver for screen locking, a setting editing GUI is included; the panel layout is updated, it now uses Whisker Menu as the default menu; Mugshot is included to allow you to easily edit your personal preferences; MenuLibre for menu editing, with full Xfce support, replacing Alacarte; a community wallpapers package which includes work from the five winners of the wallpaper contest; updated artwork.
