Xubuntu 19.04 (BETA) Release Notes

These release notes are for an unreleased version of Xubuntu. Please install at your own risk.

Dropping 32-bit Images

In December, the team voted to discontinue 32-bit images for Xubuntu 19.04 and forward. If you want to continue using Xubuntu with 32-bit architectures, Xubuntu 18.04 is supported for 3 years, and the Xubuntu package set can be installed from the Minimal CD.

Installer Issues

It must be noted that it is close to impossible for our small team of testers to be in a position to work through all the varying parameters available during installation. We do however aim to test all the possible methods of installation (including for OEM and using encryption) available either on a virtual machine or on hardware (where hardware has been used during testing then Xubuntu QA will where possible make that known on the iso testing tracker). Further installation testing information can be on the Ubuntu installation release note(s) listed below

No current documented installer issues.

General Issues

  • Panel
    • With the Adwaita GTK theme, the classic applications menu, launchers, and the directory menu plugin are clipped at various panel sizes (1756608, 1756612)
