 +  * **[[https://ayatanaindicators.github.io/|Ayatana Indicators]]** are now used with LightDM GTK+ Greeter and the Xfce Indicator plugin. This change may affect your indicator usage, as not all existing Application Indicators have been ported.
 +
 +  * The full **Adwaita icon theme** is now included. Previously, we shipped a partial version of this icon theme as required by GTK 3. Using the partial version was a sub-par experience, so we've brought in the full version!
  
   * Xubuntu 21.04 now includes a **"Minimal" install option** on the main ISO. This installation option is similar to the [[https://unit193.net/xubuntu/|Xubuntu Core]] installation image, and strips Xubuntu down to a might lighter base. To see the packages that are removed with the minimal install, check out our [[https://github.com/Xubuntu/xubuntu-seed/blob/hirsute/desktop.minimal-remove|seed file]].   * Xubuntu 21.04 now includes a **"Minimal" install option** on the main ISO.
