All software has been updated to their latest stable versions available for Ubuntu 16.04.1. Added PPA's ensure up to date apps of some of the most popular software such as LibreOffice. Overall the apps has been streamlined and slimmed. Even with the inclusion of three small Assistive Technology programs like a magnifier and onscreen keyboard.

This version of LXLE was pretty difficult. A number of Gnome apps had to be replaced with their Mate twin application to maintain a consistent user interface. Many programs and solutions had to come from many different sources to make 16.04.1 of LXLE possible. A very eclectic OS. Hence the name, Eclectica.

Respins like LXLE bring together not just the incredible work of the programmers behind the base system but also the ideas, tips, tricks and cool hacks from around the world/web. All in the hopes of creating an OS suitable for most computers produced within the last decade, perhaps even older without sacrificing tons of features or aesthetics.

Finally, a release doesn't mean bug free, perhaps close, but never perfect, as proven often. Distrowatch may provide a torrent of Eclectica later. Below are some screenshots.
