[xubuntu-users] The new LTS version of Xubuntu

Hello Neil. The configuration of xubuntu's theme will remain identical, you
can still add or remove as many panels as you want or wish to have. Xfce
has not changed that.

Whiskersmenu brings some useful characteristics to the panel management,
you can search programs fast for their name or description, for example, or
save favourite applications to be shown first in the menu, ofcourse that
the app-search of alt-f2 will remain available if thats what you want to
use, but this is integrated to the menu.

The wallpapers is a minor characteristic of the better per monitor
management settings.

I highly recommend you to test the daily isos, you can easily do so on
virtualbox, that way if you report any issue or opinion on
http://iso.qa.ubuntu.com/ you can help Xubuntu.
