As the official said:
Lubuntu is actually not part of the Ubuntu family, and not build with the current Ubuntu infrastructure. This release is considered as a « stable beta », a result that could be a final and stable release if we was included in the Ubuntu family.Lubuntu 10.10 (Maverick Meerkat) was released with Ubuntu 10.10. It featured some new test, like:-
- It based on the lightweight LXDE desktop environment.
- Faster file manager 'Pcmanfm 0.9.7'. It is a real fast and lightweight files manager using gio/gvfs.
- Included Lxdm, a lightweight GTK display manager.
- And as a web browser Lubuntu developers added 'Chromium', the open-source version of Google Chrome.
- Some programs which were installed by default have been updated like Update-notifier, Xpad and Ace of penguins.
- Some applications were removed. Parcellite is not maintained upstream, it is less useful since most of copy/paste bugs was gone with pcmanfm 0.9.X. Pyneighborhood was replaced by gvfs support of pcmanfm.
- And major changes are: LXtask replace Xfce4-taskmanager for tasks monitoring, Evince is now used for reading PDF, ePDFview have some serious memory leaks.
