In order to prepare the switch to Qt for Lubuntu, and to make LXQt
easier to test, I build an ISO with LXQt and some Lubuntu stuff, from
14.10 and the daily lubuntu-dev PPA (git snapshot of LXQt). You can
see the result on :

It's currently pretty big (800 Mb, I'm working on it), has a lot of
little issues (I'm working on it too :-)) but it should be pretty
stable to do some testing. This ISO misses several applications to
make it a real usable desktop, but you should be able to test any
applications to see if it's behave well on this environment. Like I
said, it's a prototype, expect breakages and unstable stuff sometimes

I'll regularly rebuild the ISO and push it to so be sure to check this directory
and to download the last one.

Issues should be tracking on LXQt bug tracker
( if you are sure it's an LXQt
bug, or on Launchpad ( if you
are not sure. We will do the triaging for you.

Proposal for the roadmap of Lubuntu 15.04 will follow shortly on
Lubuntu mailing list, no need to discuss this on this mail :-)
