I have uploaded a new test iso for the dev team.
I think this one will pass all the tests and be released as the RC.

Not sure.
He has to read the notification that it needs his approval.
Then he has to find time to download and test.
Once he approves it's pushed to the mirrors.
It takes about 2 days for the all mirrors to get it.
Then Clem has to post the announcement that the Release Candidate is ready for testing.

We're waiting... 8)

I just hope it will be run and install on PCs with 256 MB of RAM. (should I also mention I'm still waiting for LXDE? :P)

HI kneekoo,

Please check out the thread titled" LXDE CE OFFICIAL": viewtopic.php?f=151&t=22891&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

Please tell us your experience using LXDE with Mint.

I have an old laptop with only 256MB of ram in it.
It installed with mint4win just fine.
If you use the installer only it should be quicker.
It should be able with only 192MBs but I would have a swap partition with that low of RAM.

That's good to know that, merlwiz79. Now I hope that old Pentium III laptop I have on my hands will work nicely with XFCE. I will surely try it but I'm still desperate for LXDE CE. :lol:

Fantastic. I have used Linux Mint 6 Felicia XFCE CE since it came out, on my hp nx7000 and it is an absolute joy to use. LM6 XFCE CE was the first distro to break this pro unix sys admin away from using Ubuntu/Gnome on his own personal hardware in about 4 years, kudos for that guys. I, like the others here cannot wait for LM7 XFCE CE. Thanks so much for all you do. As much as I liked the ritual of moulding Ubuntu/Gnome into what I wanted (cosmetically, package-wise and codec-wise), I am so impressed that with LM, I didn't have to do any of it. I was truly happy with it, right out of the box. Brilliant! :mrgreen:

The XFCE .iso is available and it looks like a winner.

I'm downloading this too, I'm at work at present and they only have a crappy connection, so might take a while.

How come there is no announcement about XFCE 7 RC being released?

I want to know what goes into this XFCE release. What Apps removed, Apps replaced, added? The benefits? Does this release include all that already in Xubuntu 9.04 less all the extra unnecessary bloats?

How long does the XFCE 7 stay in RC status before it becomes official XCFCE 7 Mint release?

Thanks.
