Highlights and Known Issues

Highlights

  • Several Xfce components and apps were updated to their 4.13 development releases, bringing us closer to a Gtk+3-only desktop
  • elementary Xfce Icon Theme 0.13 with the manila folder icons as seen in the upstream elementary icon theme
  • Greybird 3.22.9, which improves the look and feel of our window manager, alt-tab dialog, Chromium, and even pavucontrol
  • A new default wallpaper featuring a gentle purple tone that greatly complements our Gtk+ and icon themes

Known Issues

  • At times the panel could show 2 network icons, this appears to be a race condition which we have not been able to rectify in time for release
  • In the settings Manager, the mouse fails to scroll apps in settings manager (GTK+ 3 regression)

For more obscure known issues, information on affecting bugs, bug fixes, and a list of new package versions, please refer to the Xubuntu Release Notes.

The main Ubuntu Release Notes cover both many of the other packages we carry and more generic issues.
