LXQt 1.0.0 arrives after 8 years of development with important improvements such as Do Not Disturb mode

LXQt 1.0.0

In the last few months we have been reporting a desk whose numberings were something like 0.15.0, 0.16.0 o 0.17.0. They are not the most normal when we talk about something that includes operating systems like Lubuntu, based on Ubuntu and used by many of those who prioritize performance over beautiful or customizable, but those past versions are already part of the past, worth the redundancy, because this afternoon I know launched LXQt 1.0.0.

Among the novelties we have of all kinds, both in the graphical environment and in the applications and libraries. To begin with and in the general section, the project highlights that LXQt 1.0.0 depends on Qt 5.15, the latest LTS version of Qt. They have also introduced new features in the panel, the terminal and its widget, do not disturb mode has been added and now the filing cabinet shows a promt for the password for files with encrypted lists.
