LXLE Official Release Notes:
 After 10  thousand downloads within a month for the beta of LXLE;
many  suggestions, tips and help came pouring in, it was simply
amazing. After  some investigating and clever work, its finally
 Did I  miss anything? Probably. Is it flawless? Probably not. Is it a
pretty  damn nice full featured desktop OS that'll run good/great on
any PC made  it the past ten years? You bet, but hey, I'm biased.
 Needless to say without becoming to long winded, which I'm certainly
known to do, lets get to it.
  LXLE purpose is to provide a complete, very fast, drop in
replacement  OS for your aging computer. Its built on an LTS release
of Ubuntu, more  specifically Lubuntu. Its pretty and ready to go out
of the box.
  The first official version packs a punch. Most features and graphics
 from the beta remain intact. However there are significant changes
that  help complete the OS for an official release.
 Best to start with some LXLE unique modifications.
 QuickStart App Launcher --- (Alt + z, type to search, enter to launch
(arrows navigate))
 Aero Snap like feature --- (click on window, hold super key, hit
 Waste Management --- (access trash from panel)
 Fast Forecast --- (fast local forecast in panel)
 Lubuntu Control Center --- (modified fully working control center)
 Deepin Software Center --- (add, remove, find, update, software)
 Many replaced and added software titles and repositories to keep you
up to date.
 Pretty Stuff
 Compton --- (menu and window shadows) (only enabled on 64bit)
 Greybird --- (complete greybird theme support including openbox,
 Elementary --- (updated elementary icon theme)
 Wallpapers --- (updated stunning backgrounds)
 Conky --- (system gauges on desktop)
 Splash Screens --- (elegant startup and shutdown screens)
  New compton release may cause occasional hesitant minimizing and 
maximizing of windows on some PC's. If bothersome, either disable
animation in openbox, or disable  compton altogether, both are found
in the Control Center.
