Lubuntu 20.10 arrives with LXQt 0.15.0 and includes these news

Lubuntu 20.10

The last to make the launch official so far, Kylin aside, has been the distro with the LXQt environment. We are talking about the landing of Lubuntu 20.10 Groovy Gorilla, and if we mention the above it is because Xubuntu still does not update its website or mention anything on its blog or on social networks, so, although it can be downloaded, we cannot say that the launch is official. Yes, those of the rest of the flavors are already, including the Chinese version that usually arrives later due to the time difference.

Lubuntu 20.10 has arrived with news but, if we pay attention to the release note, they are not too many or very exciting. Like all flavors, it does include changes related to the graphical environment, applications and libraries so that everything works correctly, as well as an updated kernel that has become Linux 5.8.
