ANNOUNCE: Razor-qt 0.4.0

We are glad to announce the release of Razor-qt 0.4.0, after a months of development since the last release:

Last weeks of development were dedicated to overall stability – the Razor team will focus on new features in the new release phase.

Also we’d like to receive any valuable feedback. And many more – contributors are welcomed too.

About Razor-qt

Razor-qt is an advanced, easy-to-use, and fast desktop environment based on Qt technologies. It has been tailored for users who value simplicity, speed, and intuitive interface. Unlike desktop environments, Razor-qt also works fine with weak machines.

    I installed in my Arch, and I didn’t like it.

    It still have a lot of improvement need to be done. It’s laggy compare to using Openbox session itself.

    Openbox session is way much more lighter than this. I just can’t give it a go for now.

    WOW, Razor-qt looks sweeeeeet!! I wonder how this compares with other light desktop environments. Once GhostBSD 2.5 or 3.0 goes to Current status, I’d be nice to see if they could also provide Razor-qt as another option to GNOME 2.x.

    Great work peeps!! Linux/BSD/Unix is really progressing these days. My hats off to all the developers who constantly work their asses off to deliver these wonderful & FREE goods. :-)

    Yup, like evilestmark suggested, “a debian package [deb] installer would be appreciated in the future”

    Can’t say that you’ve get devs but definitely you’ll get more users/testers if you can help opening up to Debian.

    The internet is such a small town… When I read “qt based DE” on slashdot (over phoronix), I thought “sounds like that project from that guy at the Arch forums”. Hehe!
