Yes, that would be nice. But for me, even for my kubuntu, where it is available, I use....
sudo aptitude update
sudo aptitude safe-upgrade

In Lubuntu, that will be using leafpad.

This applies for updates in the same version, say in Lucid and upgrade in only Lucid. For upgrades to newer versions, and I am quite new to Lubuntu, I'll recommend downloading the new iso and do a fresh install, though in Kubuntu I'll upgrade using the alternate cd. If others here who have more experience in Lubuntu have a different opinion, or I am wrong, please add your comments to help Daniel (and me).

Note that for new users, I would not recommend using 'full-upgrade' or 'dist-upgrade'. for the 2nd line above.

ps: It has been mentioned before, but may I suggest the administrator of this mailing list add a mechanism so that replies of messages will automatically send to 'lubuntu-desktop@xxxxxxxxxxxxx' rather than to the author? Something along the line of 'reply-to'? Thanks.
