A big thanks to all the people involved in the 12.10 release. It's
another success for us :-) Of course, it's not perfect, of course people
will complain ... but well, let's just enjoy the work we did. From the
testers to the translators, from the wiki masters to the people who talk
about it, from the devs (LXDE, Ubuntu etc ...) to the wizards who done
the artwork ... everyone deserve this :-)

Unfortunately, after each release, another one is coming :-) In less
than 2 weeks, UDS [1] will be at Copenhagen, to discuss 13.04 release. I
already planned a session about Lubuntu, you can find the information on
the blueprint [2]. Like last time, there is a section for open
discussion, feel free to use it. As usual, if you want to discuss
applications by default, or any major improvements, feel free to open a
topic on the mailing list. My first task will be to set-up a strict
schedule, which will most likely stop the discussions about default
applications 1 or 2 weeks after UDS. Don't be surprised.

Also, remember than everyones working on Lubuntu do it on their free
time, no one is paid for this. So, we work on things we like, things we
want and things we can do. That mean, even if a lot of people want a
feature, it may not happen. It only may encourage us, because we know
people are waiting for this, and it may be useful for them. If you
really want something, the best option is to try yourself (it's open
source after all ;-))

But, for this week-end, it's time to enjoy and to rest a bit. And time
to go to a release party ;-)
