[NEWS] Xubuntu 13.04 Beta 2 Released

Xubuntu 13.04 Beta 2 has been released.

Xubuntu 13.04 is mostly a maintenance release, and there won’t be too many new features. In Beta 2, we’ve fixed the following bugs:
  • Documentation is updated to 13.04
  • New version of Catfish (0.6.1) is included and fixes a lot of bugs
  • More updates for the Greybird theme
In addition, new features and bug fixes introduced in Beta 1 and earlier include:
  • Gnumeric and GIMP are reintroduced
  • New version of Parole (0.5.0) is included
  • Duplicate partitions are no longer shown on desktop or Thunar
  • Some updates for the Greybird theme

Beta 2 is not suitable for production machines because is still unstable and is available here.

  1. Great to see Xubuntu Geek blog still going. I really appreciate your useful tips and advice. Xubuntu is fantastic.

    I'm wondering about how / if I'll upgrade to 13.04 when it's released (on 12.10 at the moment). Hope you might have a post on how best to upgrade.

    1. Thanks for your appreciation. A post on that subject can be expected.

  2. Great blog , really helpful.

  3. will be a very good release!do you know something about 9 month of support?
    this blog still remains the best and very very helpful!

    1. Thank you!

      13.04 is non-LTS, so it will have 9 months of support (security updates). LTS releases have 5 years of support. The next LTS is 14.04 (LTS are released every 2 years).

  4. I found the answer to my Conky problem on this website,

    The instructions are very simple to follow, and give all different coloured Conky-lua's. but how to change the logo from inside the clock? i have extreme and i want to have the name of the sistem?
    than what to do if i want to change conky's colors from green to black or blue?

    thank you very much!

    1. To change the logo replace the image ~/.conky/new-ubuntu-logo.png with one of your liking.

      To change colors, just run the install code for the color that's provided on the website and restart conky.

  5. thank you very very much!
