LXQt Still Working Towards Its Next Release, Not Yet Ready For Release Schedule

Written by Michael Larabel in Qt on 4 September 2016 at 09:39 AM EDT. 2 Comments
LXQt 0.10 was released last November and is currently the desktop environment's current latest release of this Qt-written desktop forked from LXDE. There's talk though of a new release possibly coming soon, but the project doesn't appear ready yet to commit to any release schedule or routine cadence for new versions.

A Phoronix reader pointed out to us this LXQt issue tracker page where the idea of a release schedule was brought up. While LXQt continues to be actively developed, the project doesn't appear to be ready to commit to any cadence for releases. In part the releases are few and far between due to a shortage of developers working on the project.

However, the good news is that it sounds like the next LXQt release may not be too far off, given the comments on that thread.
