Hi folks,

Betas are being replaced by RC's (Release Candidates).

Given that our Beta builds to date have traditionally been highly stable, it makes sense to introduce a more accurate build stage category.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle

I've also had people ask me to make the Betas (in this case now the RCs) stand out more. So in future, all RC builds will have a clear watermark in the bottom right hand side of the default wallpaper only. This will be moved somewhat to the left to accommodate for those that use Lite Widget. The Final of each release will not have any watermark.

This will start with the 4.4 release.

Reading on the wikipedia link RC sounds much more accurate and I can see why you are doing it.
Some times betas of other things get a bad name or can be very buggy, using the new naming gives distance from that, allowing users to make a better informed choice.

I too like RC.. As they have been very stable..

I like the idea of the watermark on the Default Background - How difficult would it to be incorporate the similar into /etc/llver? "Linux Lite 4.4 RC"
Just another thought ...??....

@firenice03 I could put it in multiple areas, but in the name of simplicity, chose one.

@Jerry
LOL... I know it could be nightmare, if changing multiple files/locations...
Thinking around the idea of "I can't upgrade to next LL" or related xzy = Oh lookie you installed the RC, now enjoy the Final...

Something where having the RC version wouldn't have the same outcome as the final...??...
Where it could be easily incorporated ie..  check "llver" to ensure you're not on a RC release prior to upgrade??

GREAT Idea though - I even like typing RC when referring...

 ;D  LOL - RC's have a monochromatic appearance??   :-X :-X :-X

Can't change llver so much other software relies on reading that file in a certain way.

An idea instead of changing llver -
The end user can type llroadmap in to the command line and it would show the LinuxLite Roadmap.
The shell script can be on the system and the txt file, so it works as below.
Only the text file needs to be updated as part of Install Updates when an extra release happens in future.
Extras, I am not sure how to do this - the currently used Version would appear in the results in a different colour.

I try to avoid doubling up on things, this is already on the website. But I like the code :)

Goody, can't wait!
Nothing like the smell of a fresh download in the morning! ;)

Found the perfect related GIF to my post but was a little big so here's the link (Almost sounds like Click-Bait 101... "Nobody expected what happened next.")
https://i.gifer.com/LHWP.gif

When searching also found this picture and LOLed a second time. Yep, some people like their coffee a little TOO much!
 
 It's the first sunny day in over a week here so, yeah, I guess I'm over-happy and posting silly things.
Happy happy, joy joy
