LXQt, the "lightweight Qt Desktop Environment", is out with their next major release.

"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." notes the LXQt.org announcement.

For those that haven't been tracking this project, LXQt is the merger of LXDE-Qt and Razor-qt with its focus being to provide a fast, lightweight desktop environment while being written around the Qt tool-kit.
