This week we met a new version of Ubuntu, a version that is also LTS version which means it has long support, being ideal for computers and users who need to have a very stable system. This version has not come alone, this time several official flavors have released their respective LTS versions as Xubuntu with Xubuntu 16.04.
Ubuntu’s official taste for lightweight computers has released one more version and thankfully is an LTS version, A version with 3 year support which will ensure updates and bug fixes for the version. But in addition to the LTS feature, Xubuntu 16.04 has brought several new features that make Xubuntu 16.04 a pretty interesting version to use.
In this version Thunar has been updated and has been given a number of improvements that fix major bugs that have been found in recent months. A new artwork and wallpapers have also been added, a series of files that we already commented on a long time ago. Coupled with these improvements, Albatross, Bluebird and Orion, Traditional Themes in Xubuntu, have been removed from the latest version for not being maintained.
Xubuntu 16.04 will have 3 year support
Also, as in the main version of Ubuntu, Xubuntu 16.04 will not have Ubuntu Software Center but will adopt Gnome Software Center, the new software center. Along with this, it is necessary to take into account the new features of the version, ie the number of kernels, the correction of bugs and the removal of certain software that will no longer be installed by default. In the case of Xubuntu 16.04, Calendar is not but Orage Calendar is, A small and practical calendar. As for bugs, Xubuntu 16.04 fixes lots of bugs of their own of the distribution that have been found in recent months, bugs found in Xfce4-power-manager, MenuLibre, Parole or even Catfish.
If you are really looking for a light and stable Ubuntu, Xubuntu 16.04 is a great choice, a choice that you can download from here or simply, if you already have Ubuntu 16.04 installed, install Xubuntu-desktop with apt-get Easy, right?
