0.9.010 Feb 2015 09:45 major feature: This release drops all compatibility with Qt 4. It also features heavy internal cleanups and refactorings. Qt 5.3 is now the minimum required version. LXQt 0.9 also brings in our first KDE Frameworks dependencies. KWindowSystem is a true-and-tested library for handling window events. It replaces our custom XFitMan library and will greatly help in becoming fully compatible with Wayland. KGuiAddons also replaces a hard dependency on Xlib in lxqt-panel. A huge thanks to the KDE team for making Frameworks available for projects like ours :-) Theme changes: - New theme: "Frost". A cold, dark theme courtesy of Inti Alonso. Screenshots available on lxqt.org! - A-Mego, Flat and Green have been deleted as they were low quality or too similar to other themes. - The old Dark theme has been merged with the Flat Dark theme from LXQt 0.8. Please note that theme re-configuration will be needed if you are using one of the old themes. Component changes: - The functionality of the old lxqt-power has been restored into an "lxqt-leave" component. It is now part of lxqt-session. - Panel background is now configurable - The main menu plugin can now be navigated using the keyboard - The Clock plugin has been merged into the World Clock plugin. It has received several changes and no longer requires ICU. Reconfiguring the clock may be required upon upgrading depending on your settings. - The power management component now supports displaying multiple batteries Other changes: - KWindowSystem replaces XfitMan in lxqt-panel, lxqt-runner, lxqt-session, lxqt-notificationd and lxqt-session. - KGuiAddons replaces a hard dependency on Xlib in lxqt-panel - A copy of xdg-utils is no longer bundled with LXQt.
