Xubuntu 17.04 (Zesty Zapus)

Xubuntu 17.04 will be supported for 9 months until January 2018. If you need Long Term Support, it is recommended you use Xubuntu 16.04 LTS instead.

Several Xfce panel plugins and applications have been ported to GTK+ 3, paving the way for improved theming and further development. Core Xfce libraries exo and libxfce4ui have also been updated with full GTK+ 3 support, the latter adding support for Glade development in Xubuntu with the installation of libxfce4ui-glade. The Greybird and Numix themes have also been refreshed with improved support for the toolkit.

Camera functionality has been restored in Mugshot, Parole introduced a new mini mode and improvements for network streams, and a number of welcome fixes have made their way into Thunar and Ristretto. Simon Tatham's Portable Puzzle Collection (sgt-puzzles), an addicting collection of logic games, has been included along with the new SGT Puzzles Collection (sgt-launcher).

This release is based on the 4.10.x Linux release series. LibreOffice 5.3 includes a number of fixes and introduces new experimental interface options. Firefox 52 and Thunderbird 45 are included.

For new installs a swap file will be used instead of a swap partition. Upgrades from earlier versions are not affected.

See the main Ubuntu Release Note for more general issues and updates.

About Xubuntu

What is Xubuntu?

Xubuntu is a community developed, GNU/Linux based Free/Open Source operating system. It is an officially recognized flavor of the popular Ubuntu operating system.

The Xubuntu community is built around the ideals enshrined in the Ubuntu Philosophy: that software should be available free of charge, that software tools should be usable by people in their local language and despite any disabilities, and that people should have the freedom to customize and alter their software in whatever way they see fit.

Ideals behind Xubuntu

The Xubuntu team has four major areas of focus. These guidelines help the developers work in a way that benefits the Xubuntu users most.

Usability. Xubuntu should help the user to accomplish their task, not be in the way. Furthermore, the various aspects of Xubuntu should be configurable.

Performance. Xubuntu should allow the user to get the most out of their hardware while being user-friendly. It should be lightweight enough to run on moderately old machines as well.

Ready to use product. The Xubuntu experience should be smooth and unified from the boot to the shutdown. All aspects of the operating system should be integrated and polished.

Community. The community infrastructure and communication should be robust enough to enable the contributors to direct their efforts into making Xubuntu better and not resolve irrelevant issues.

To read more about the ideals behind Xubuntu, refer to the Xubuntu Strategy Document.

A good balance

We believe that you should be able to utilize the maximum system performance to things you care about. Xubuntu is built around lightweight software with a lot of consideration for usability. Whether you have a high-end computer or even a moderately older machine, Xubuntu is able to provide you with a smooth and usable desktop experience. Benefiting of the Ubuntu hardware support, Xubuntu is able to work wonderfully with a wide variety of devices out of the box. Plug in your device, chances are it will work!

Ready to use!

Xubuntu has enough applications preinstalled for you to deal with daily tasks without having to install additional software. Applications that are preinstalled include a web browser, a mail client, word processor, spreadsheet editor, applications to handle your media like music, videos and photos as well as many useful tools. When you need more applications, games or tools, you can install them from the package repositories via the Ubuntu Software Center.

Xfce, the Desktop Environment of Xubuntu

The Xfce Desktop Environment is a project started in 1996. The Xfce mascot is a mouse, which is lightweight and fast. The mouse has heavily influenced the Xubuntu logo and artwork since the first versions. Alongside you will see a recent impression of the cute mascot.

Make the desktop your own

Apart from the application selection, you can control many more aspects of the operating system through the included Settings Manager. While the default artwork and themes are beautiful, you can always tweak them more to your liking. Don’t like the way your system works? You will find a number of different ways to customize the desktop functionality. Finally, you can personalize your computer by changing your user details.
