LXLE 16.04.2 promises to be the best version of the distribution so far

Lxle 16.04.1

It has recently been released the Release Candidate version of LXLE 16.04.2, a distribution that is based on Ubuntu but oriented towards computers with few resources. In this case, the distribution will be based on Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS, the latest LTS version of Ubuntu.

However, unlike other releases or updates, the version has more improvements and new software that will make the operating system a rocket ship on computers with few resources.

The release candidate version is not a stable version but it is a version that shows us some new features that the new version of LXLE will bring. In this case, the artwork has been updated and generalized, being uniform throughout the operating system and with many applications of the operating system.  GTK + libraries have been updated in order that the programs work better as well as the interaction with programs created with QT libraries.

Ubuntu's proposed repository will be enabled in LXLE 16.04.2

The distribution installer has also been updated. This means that when a user chooses a language, the installer will completely update to that language, including slides, something that was not happening at the moment and was annoying for many.

This time, the LXLE 16.04.2 base has been changed; it is still Ubuntu but within the activated repositories, LXLE 16.04.2 will have the proposed repository enabled by default, something that did not happen in previous versions. Unlike other distributions, LXLE 16.04.2 has an installation image for 32-bit machines and 64-bit machines.

LXLE 16.04.2 now is available for download but not recommended for use on production machines as there are still bugs and problems that could cause us to lose our data. But if you really want to have a distribution that is based on Ubuntu and that is for teams with few resources, the current version of LXLE is suitable for these cases, although personally I would wait for the release of LXLE 16.04.2

    I use LXLE on a very old laptop with Pentium M and 512Mb and it is surprising how well it works.

    Although it works well for me, I have a problem with LXLE that becomes somewhat annoying ... every time the system is suspended the screen is left with a distorted image and it is impossible to fix it, so I have to restart the computer, as the distro does not bring I had to install a screen manager installed and even so I can't correct the problem, I would appreciate some help since it becomes somewhat cumbersome and I don't want to reinstall another system because despite everything LXLE is the one that responds best on my Lenovo g475, that despite being of secondary use serves me a lot ... thanks in advance, I await an answer ...
