Lubuntu Artful Aardvark Beta 1 (soon to be 17.10) has been released!
Also in this release (in addition to the usual LXDE ISO) is an
experimental image with LXQt instead of LXDE.

For the LXDE edition, we have a couple papercuts listed in the release
notes[1], so please take a look there. Please note that this Beta
release features usage of netplan instead of ifupdown, so networking
issues might occur. If you find such issues, please let us know by
reporting a bug against plan (the source that ships netplan)[2].

You can grab the Lubuntu images from here:

We recommend that if you install Lubuntu Artful Aardvark Beta 1, that
you download the LXDE edition rather than the experimental LXQt ISO. The
LXQt ISO will most likely break your system.

If you would like to read the release notes for Lubuntu Next (the
experimental LXQt edition of Lubuntu), you can find them here[3]. The
release notes lists all of the known issues for the images.

You can grab the experimental Lubuntu Next images from here:

this release together! If you would like to join our team and help make
