Version 3.4 - Whats New..
Linux Lite 3.4 Final is now available for download. Linux Lite continues its focus on Security by providing our latest application, Lite Updates Notify. This application is a desktop notification that informs the user of all available updates. You can set Update reminders anywhere from once every hour to once every 3 weeks. Continuing our focus on Security, Lite Welcome has a fresh new look, reminding you after a fresh install of Linux Lite to - Install Updates, Install Drivers and Set a Restore Point. This release also brings 4 new features to Lite Tweaks, Hibernate & Suspend, Login & Logout Options, Manage Save Sessions and zRam. With Hibernate & Suspend, you can select whether or not to show these options on the Logout screen. The Login & Logout Options feature allows the administrator to enable or disable Login & Logout window options. These 2 new features are particularly useful for multi user set ups. zRam is a compressed RAM block device for faster I/O and is perfect for older computers. Also in this release we've included lots of updates to our Lite packages, as well as the usual fixes from the 3.4 Beta.
Linux Lite is based on the Ubuntu LTS series of releases. LTS stands for Long Term Support, this means each release has a support period of 5 years. This is a great basis for stability, but not only that, you only need to install once every 5 years. During that period your system will continue to receive updates. Linux Lite is fully functional out of the box, this means that you won't have to install extra software when you boot your computer for the first time. We believe that a computer should be ready to use straight away on the first boot after a new install. You're going to need this kind of functionality on a daily basis when you are using your computer so we take the hassle out of trying to find the right software from the start.
