This weekend, a new version of Lumina got released, Lumina Desktop 1.1 . Lumina is a lightweight Qt-based desktop environment. It uses an approach “plugin based” to the whole interface, and this is allowing the user to tune and tweak the desktop according to his personal needs and preferences. You can install it in almost any Linux distribution even though the developer says that it works best with TrueOS, including also Fedora, Arch and ofcourse Ubuntu.
Lumina 1.1 – What changed
The new update is considered significant. It has fully re-built utilites and also improvements to the basic infrastructure. Lemens Insight File manager is benefited from most of the changes, because now it can pick up a Git meny (it requires for Git to be installed locally) and it can clone and view a Git repo.
