[opensuse-factory] ANNOUNCEMENT: Xfce in Tumbleweed installer and Xfce live images
Dear Geekos,
We the openSUSE Xfce team have two cool announcements to make:

1) Since Tumbleweed snapshot 20190408, Xfce got much easier to install.
Along with GNOME and KDE Plasma, Xfce can now be conveniently selected from the installer's main screen, from both DVD installer and NET installer. All this is combined with a carefully picked selection of packages that rounds off our offered system to get you started quickly and easily.

Our Xfce team has invested a lot of work in the past months to optimize the desktop and the underlying rolling release of Tumbleweed. It features applications that better suit the desktop, as well as new modern themes that make the default experience refreshing and enjoyable.

2) Xfce live images are finally here! The live images give you a close look at the Xfce experience in openSUSE, which allows you to test and preview the system features. Ultimately, if you decide so, you can install the system directly from the live environment through the installer icon on the desktop.

Xfce Live images are tested in openQA [1], which helps us provide quality and stability to the systems, and are available in both i586 and x86_64 architectures, easily accessible on https://software.opensuse.org [2].

If you end up using those images on USB stick, they will be persistent, so they are also an excellent way to get a portable and bootable drive with all your settings waiting for you the way you set them up yourself.


Willing to join the team?
Being small but passionate, openSUSE's Xfce team is always happy to welcome helping hands for testing, bug reporting, package maintaining, documentation and other tasks. But it's not limited to technical areas! We are constantly looking for ideas and creative developments to discuss, elaborate and implement. Check our wiki page [3] or just feel free to reach out to us!
