No problems here. Just finished installing 3.0 64bit.
Bluetooth keyboard works.

So far I installed and checked the following applications:
- Geany,
- Lazarus IDE,
- Eclipse,
- Sqliteman,
- MineCraft,
- Steam,
- Palemoon browser (I don't like Firefox, has google crap installed),
- OpenShot,
- Lighttpd,
- PHP5 (with GD, Sqlite3 and cli),
- Wine.

No problems so far, just like 2.8, it simply works.

Like the default theme!

Hi Jerry - I cannot find the "Lite Control Centre"??  Has it been deprecated from 3.0?  Just wondering.  Thank you for a great release.

Hey Jerry, I don't see Linux Lite Control Center. Is there a way to install it from a repo?
Thanks!
Len

Apparently, you need to install Lite Upgrade Series 2

Why would I do that when I am asking a question about 3.0?  :)

Just noticed a wee glitch. .deb files want to open with Archive Manager. Menu, (type in  'Mime') Mime type editor, then type in deb in the filter box, and select Gdebi from the dropdown box. Will be fixed in 3.2

Testing 3.0 on DVD to see if I want to up grade yet. My favorite theme, BleuFear, does not change Synaptic. Not sure about any other app. Tried DeLorean, and a few other dark themes and they also did not change Synaptic. Don't really like the blue gray of Arc-Dark. I prefer the flat gray of BleuFear. Anybody know why BleuFear not working everywhere?

I've noticed some theme differences too, I think it's something to do with the differences between Gtk2+ & Gtk3+.
The bottom 2 paragraphs of the 1st reply on that page I think eludes to why some themes work correctly and others don't.
For me Synaptic didn't change themes until after a reboot, VLC didn't until I set Force Window Style to Gtk+.
One I've found that won't change is Unetbootin, it does with the default themes but not with the older themes I  like using.
Those 3 changed soon as applied in 2.8.
Some of the older themes don't even show up in Appearance now, I'm guessing that's because they have no Gtk3+ elements/folder included.

At the moment I'm looking for a way to integrate clearer icons against dark backgrounds like the tray:



I'll let folks know when this is ready.

There is also an updated package for SystemD Manager.

Jerry didn't keep that in v3.0.  Please read this entire thread.  Jerry has stated quite a few times that he didn't want to discuss it any more.

Lite Themes package updated. Run Install Updates to get it. This change brings better contrasting icons in the tray.



Once the update is complete, go to Menu, Settings, Appearance, Icons tab, and select Faenza-Dark. This changes a few other icons like the Log Out icon on the Menu, but leaves the majority of the existing icons unchanged, ensuring continuity.

Another update to Lite Themes.

There is now more continuity across the theme.

Before Firefox menus were white, they're now blue.
Before LibreOffice menus were white, they're now blue.
Before Thunderbird menus were white, they're now blue.
Before Firewall menus were white, they're now blue.

And importantly, tray icon menus are now all blue too.



Having a Lite Themes package in LL 3.0 has made life SO much easier to deploy fixes now.
Things will continue to improve :)

... Also the removal of the Games menu is a detriment to me, although it can be created manually it is a disappointment it's not there by default. ...

When you install games of your choice via Synaptic (and probably by Lite Software), the Whisker menu automatically creates a games folder. I like the graphics on KMahjongg and  KPatience better than the Gnome versions.Also I don't want Steam. Therefore, no installed games or folder is not a problem for me and I don't have to uninstall the stuff in games that were in versions before 3.0.
