Lubuntu 11.10 (Oneiric Ocelot) released

Finally, the long awaited release is here. Notes from Julien Lavergne, the Lubuntu team leader:

  • ISOs are now build with Ubuntu official build system
  • alternate ISOs are available
  • many updates from LXDE (most components had official releases)
  • build with recommended packages by default
  • use recommends instead of depends for most of components of lubuntu-desktop meta-package
  • register correctly LXDE as a desktop environment by xdg tools
  • switch to xfce4-power-manager for power management
  • add a microblog client: pidgin-microblog
  • new theme made by Rafael Laguna

The release notes, with a list of known problems are available here. You can find information on how to report bug on this wiki page. Also check out the Lubuntu website, the documentation, the LXDE website and the official announcement.

 You can grab it at the usual Downloads page.


  1. It's now redirected because the conternt itself for is being modified.

    But I think every ISO and links dedicated to Lubuntu are still available, or you can use the ones provided in this blog, if you need.

  2. This new version is probably the buggies version of Lubuntu ever released. I would write a list of new bugs in this version that I've had but that would take too.
