Ok, here it is. We have no summary for this beta (Julien is working on it) but you can download and start testing it (I recommend working under emulation). You can download the beta at the usual place 🙂

Lubuntu Natty beta 1

The first beta of Lubuntu has been released. There’re minor changes in look’n’feel, but a lot of improvements here and there. So, what’s new?

  • New theme made (by me)
  • Update installer, with new layout and screenshots
  • A lot of bug fixes
Please note that Lubuntu Natty is based on Ubuntu Natty, same warning apply : “Pre-releases of Natty are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even frequent breakage. They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs.”

Check it out at downloads area.

Beta 2

As you can see, we’re still developing (and working!). Julien Lavergne (a.k.a. The Boss 😀 ) is proud to present the second (and last) testing release. This one includes some bug fixes and has the usual Ubuntu updates (that are plenty). Here are the download links (please, using torrent is better for everybody). Also, I’ve updated the downloads section. There you can still download the last stable version of Lubuntu, if you don’t want to test this release and want your system to be stable and fully functional.
