Thanks to all the hard work from our contributors, we are pleased to announce that Lubuntu 20.04.5 LTS has been released!
What is Lubuntu?
Lubuntu is an official Ubuntu flavor which uses the Lightweight Qt Desktop Environment (LXQt). The project’s goal is to provide a lightweight yet functional Linux distribution based on a rock-solid Ubuntu base. Lubuntu provides a simple but modern and powerful graphical user interface, and comes with a wide variety of applications so you can browse, email, chat, play, and be productive.
Lubuntu 20.04 LTS will be supported until April 2023.
Where can I download it?
You can download Lubuntu 20.04.5 LTS on our downloads page.
This announcement on our official website (Lubuntu.me, NOT Lubuntu dot net, which is not run by Lubuntu contributors) replaces the traditional release notes we have provided in the past on the wiki. We have left out some notes that are common to all flavors, so we recommend that you read the Ubuntu release notes.
What’s The Difference Between Lubuntu 20.04 LTS And This Release?
Lubuntu 20.04.5 is an image produced for convenience so that a fresh install of Lubuntu LTS does not require as many updates after install (as Lubuntu continues to release Stable Release Updates and security fixes to make your experience as smooth as possible and to fix any bugs, if you want to help us out with this, see below, we always need more help). If you do system updates regularly, you are already running Lubuntu 20.04.5 LTS, and if you install Lubuntu on a system using a Lubuntu 20.04 LTS image and do system updates, that system will also then be running Lubuntu 20.04.5 LTS. A brief list of the bugs fixed between 20.04 and 20.04.5 can be found here
