Xubuntu 20.10


 Xubuntu 20.10, the latest stable version of the project's official Ubuntu variant featuring the Xfce desktop, has been released: "Xubuntu 20.10 was released on Thursday, October 22, 2020 and will be supported for nine months until Thursday, July 22, 2021." The project has yet to publish an official release announcement, but the release notes do provide some information, including a list of known issues: "Installer issues: grub-installer chooses which drive to install to with no user input. Graphical issues: AMD graphics - block staircase display with side-by-side monitors of different pixel widths (fixed upstream, SRU expected for 20.04.1). General issues: GNOME Font Viewer - crashes in the live environment; Xfce PulseAudio plugin - multiple notifications displayed if multiple PulseAudio plugins added to panel; Xfce Screensaver - password required twice when switching users; Xfce Settings daemon - sometimes does not run after logging in, resulting in appearance and configuration issues. This was a less active development cycle for our team, though we did make some significant improvements for our contributors."
