Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 "Shiny"



The Lubuntu Lucid Alpha 3 is now available. Don't forget that it's build
with Ubuntu Lucid (10.04) which is still in Alpha state of development,
so same warnings :

"Pre-releases of Lucid are *not* encouraged for anyone needing a stable
system or anyone who is not comfortable running into occasional, even
frequent breakage.  They are, however, recommended for Ubuntu developers
and those who want to help in testing, reporting, and fixing bugs."

We passed Feature Freeze, that mean most of the features should now be
available. It's now time for testing and fixing bugs.

New features since Alpha 2 :
* Main changes in the seed :
 - chromium for the browser
 - gnome-mplayer for the videos
 - network-manager for the network

* pcmanfm2, the rewrite of the file-manager, is now used by default.

* New artwork made by Rafael Laguna.

* A new session (Lubuntu-Netbook), which launched lxlauncher. You need
to logout, select Lubuntu-Netbook session instead of Lubuntu, and enter
login "ubuntu" without password.

Known bugs:
* If you test on a USB, the first screen will freeze for a moment when
you click on "Try Lubuntu ...". Just wait, it will continue as normal.

* Bug reported during testing :

* Specific pages for pcmanfm2 bugs :

If you want to create a bootable usb system, please use the usb creator
directly on Ubuntu.  

Please follow the testing process described on this page :
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Lubuntu/SubTeams/TestingSubTeam . You can also
report problems and bugs relative to the tests on this page.
