I love the smell of a release candidate in the morning (inspired by a quote from "Apocalypse Now").  I see Sound Juicer is being added.  I think I've already ripped all the CDs I have, except the Christmas ones.  I used Asunder at the time.  There's usually a reason for everything.  How did you make the Sound Juicer choice?  Was it based on personal familiarity, or is it just considered better?

Release Announcement

Linux Lite 4.4 RC1 is now available for testing.

Yes, that's right, RC1. We have moved off the Beta build model to RC releases as these more accurately reflect the build quality of our pre-Final images.
Linux Lite 4.4 Final will be released 1st April, 2019 New Zealand time.


Moved from Betas to RC releases. The RC releases Build number is the date of the actual ISO build eg. Build 24022019 - 24th February 2019. The RC information and Build number will only appear on the default wallpaper for that release, Login screen and the Live Boot screen. The positioning of the text is such that it allows room for desktop widgets like Conky and Lite Widget to appear uncluttered on the right. Finals will not have any build information on the default wallpaper.

Updated the Papirus icon theme to the latest release.

Sound Juicer CD ripper has now been added to Lite Software. To get rip-to-mp3 support, Sound Juicer will also install the Restricted Extras package.

Volume level - the double level volume bug has been eliminated.

Removed all references to Google+ as that service is due to close down on April 2nd 2019.

We have moved from Sourceforge distributed servers to OSDN as OSDN will help to finance our project. Their systems and mirror choices are virtually similar.


Kernel: 4.15.0-45 (custom kernels also available via our Repository for versions 3.13 - 5.0)
Firefox: 65.0 Quantum
Thunderbird: 60.4.0
VLC: 3.0.4
Gimp: 2.10.8
Base: 18.04.2

Known Issues:

None as yet (watch this space as more people become involved in the testing process and report back to us).

There is no upgrade to or from RC releases. RC releases are for testing only and it is not recommended to run them as your main or secondary operating system.
