LXQt test and Lubuntu 14.04

I just did an update and got an update on the lubuntu session, so who 
knows there may be no bugs now (my panel is highly configured and I 
haven't rebooted today)
There are still some packages that haven't made it into trusty, so make 
sure the programs you like are around.
(Variety is not here yet... so I am missing my wonderful NASA photos of 
the day)
If it is a spare machine, then just go for it, this is just as stable as 
13.10 was for me.  I haven't encountered a glitch I didn't expect.
