The Lumina Desktop Environment has made available their v1.0 beta release of the Qt-written desktop.

PC-BSD developers and others continue working on Lumina as an alternative, lightweight desktop environment. While originating in the BSD world, Lumina continues to be designed to work on any Unix-like OS and is licensed under a 3-clause BSD license. Should you not be familiar with Lumina from our past articles, visit Lumina-Desktop.org to learn more about the project.

Lumina 1.0-Beta 1 was released to start off July. The release announcement for this version simply reads, "This is a beta-quality release of the Lumina Desktop Environment (1.0.0-Devel, snapshot on July 1 2016). Although highly stable and ready for use on most desktop systems, many backend systems are still changing which may cause the user's settings to be reset between versions (although this is minimized as much as possible)."
