A few moments ago, it just became official the launch of Lubuntu 22.10 Kinetic Kudu. In the previous version, the team of developers leading this project was a bit conservative and stayed with LXQt 0.17.0, so Kudu is the first to bring version 1.0 to this official flavor of Ubuntu. Although the truth is that months ago they released a Backports repository like the KDE one for those who wanted to install newer packages.
Lubuntu 22.10 arrives with LXQt 1.1.0 as a graphical environment, and also includes new versions of other packages. Kinetic Kudu is a normal cycle release, that is, one that is supported for 9 months. For that reason, the project is ahead of the pack and recommends that you upgrade to Lubuntu 23.04 when it is released. They also say that 22.10 will only receive security patches and other major updates, and that from now on they will focus on developing what they will release six months from now.

Lubuntu 22.04 Highlights Kinetic Kudu
- Supported for 9 months, until July 2023.
- Linux 5.19.
- LXQt 1.1.0.
- Qt 5.15.6.
- Calamares 3.3 Alpha 2, which they think is the best option despite being in alpha. This probably has to do with the bug in the installation media that causes the install icon to appear twice if you search from the application launcher.
- Firefox 106, and they take the opportunity to remind us that they will use the snap version.
- Libre Office 7.4.2.
- VLC 3.0.17.
- Featherpad 1.3.0.
- Discover 5.25.5. For those who do not know it, it is the KDE software center used by operating systems such as Kubuntu or KDE neon.
Lubuntu 22.10 Kinetic Kudu has been available for hours on the Ubuntu cdimage, but the release was not published until a few minutes ago. In any case, the launch is official. The new images can now be downloaded from the aforementioned Canonical server or from the project's official website, more specifically lubuntu.me.
