The development of distribution LXLE 16.04.1 it continues and it is already the first Release Candidate is available (RC), for both 64-bit processor and 32-bit computers, which is not surprising when we talk about a lightweight operating system. The launch of the first RC took place just two weeks after the release of a first beta that was publicly available. That beta was only available for 64-bit computers and was not based on the latest operating system update developed by Canonical.
RC 1 version of LXLE 16.04.1 is now based on Ubuntu 16.04.1 and comes with many improvements, such as support for the Btrfs file system, support for multi-monitor configurations, Expose type window selector, a lightweight app launcher, i3lock screen with autoblur and a new welcome screen. It certainly looks like the batteries have been put in place in the two weeks that have passed since the launch of the previous beta.
LXLE 16.04.1 comes with all the new features of Ubuntu 16.04.1
This RC also includes something I quite like: a tool that changes the wallpaper for another one from time to time. On the other hand, it also includes one Aero type window selection function, Various Linux Mint and MAT Stack applications, a weather application and a compact Menu Control, among other things, coupled with the latest security updates and greater fluidity.
But this is not all. They have also been included new file manager extensions, Such as “Open as administrator”, “Put as wallpaper”, “Check MD5” or “Empty Trash”, some of them very important in any operating system.
The RCX of LXLE 16.04.1 is available for download and test from the project website, Along with some release notes. If you are looking for one lightweight graphic environment and functional, it may be worth a try.
