 **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** **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.

-==== Keyboard Shortcuts ​====+==== Xfce 4.14 ==== 
 +Released in August 2019, Xfce 4.14 is a modern desktop built on top of the latest libraries. From the release announcement:​
  
-Xubuntu 19.04 includes ​a few new keyboard shortcuts to make your workflow faster.+> In this 4.14 cycle the main goal was to port all core components to Gtk3 (over Gtk2) and GDBus (over D-Bus GLib). Most components also received GObject Introspection support. Along the way we ended up polishing our user experience, introducing quite a few new features and improvements (read below) and fixings a boatload of bugs (read changelog).
  
-  * **Shift + PrintScreen** will launch the Xfce Screenshooter'​s region capture mode. 
-  * **F4** (in Thunar) will open a terminal in the current path. 
-  * **Ctrl + Shift + F** / **Cmd + Shift + F** (in Thunar) will open Catfish in the current path.
