LXQt 0.10.0 Released
« on: 02. November 2015, 14:13:55 »
We are proud to announce the release of LXQt 0.10.0, the Lightweight Qt desktop environment.
This release, we focused on cleanup, polishing and quality-of-life improvements, with over 400 issues fixed and dozens of new translations. We have also gained two new frameworks: Solid, which replaces liblxqt-mount and some custom power management code and libkscreen, which replaces system xrandr calls and is wayland forward-compatible.
We are looking for more volunteers to join us and help with development and graphics! If you would like to help, check out our contribution guidelines:

https://github.com/lxde/lxqt/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md

Release highlights:
  • New module: lxqt-sudo (usable as lxsu or lxsudo). Escalate privilege directly from LXQt.
  • Panel: Windows on the taskbar can now be set to group if they are from the same application
  • Panel: Windows on the taskbar can now be drag & dropped
  • Panel: Gained a plugin that supports the Status Notifier Item spec (AKA the new, wayland-compatible systray spec)
  • Runner: No longer shows duplicate items for binaries and apps
  • Session: Gained a udev monitor for reloading keyboard settings when new keyboards are plugged in. This is only needed on some distributions, so it has to be enabled during the build (-DLIBUDEV_MONITOR=ON)
  • Session: Configuration module gained support for changing default common folders (Desktop, Downloads, Music, etc)
  • File manager: Implemented search functionality
  • File manager: Better support for trash
  • File manager: Can now navigate back/forward with mouse side buttons
  • The screens configuration has been completely revamped and now uses the libkscreen framework as backend
  • The power management module now uses the Solid framework as backend
  • The mount panel plugin now uses the Solid framework as backend. liblxqt-mount is no longer used and has been deprecated.
  • Minimum CMake version for LXQt is now 3.0.2
  • Replaced all instances of "LxQt" with "LXQt"

Look forward to trying the new version of LXQT for Manjaro when it's available.
OK, so I took the red pill. Now what?

Did anyone else from the testing branch update LxQt today successfully? My update ran smoothly but logged in to a black background and nothing ran. I am back on LxQt 0.9.0 with stable now...

I have ISOs 0.10 working fine since 2-3 days, except a minor bug who blocks me.
