Xubuntu 17.04 will be supported for 9 months until January 2018. Several Xfce panel plugins and applications have been ported to GTK+ 3, paving the way for improved theming and further development. Core Xfce libraries exo and libxfce4ui have also been updated with full GTK+ 3 support, the latter adding support for Glade development in Xubuntu with the installation of libxfce4ui-glade. The Greybird and Numix themes have also been refreshed with improved support for the toolkit.

Camera functionality has been restored in Mugshot, Parole introduced a new mini mode and improvements for network streams, and a number of welcome fixes have made their way into Thunar and Ristretto. This release is based on the 4.10.x Linux release series. LibreOffice 5.3 includes a number of fixes and introduces new experimental interface options. Firefox 52 and Thunderbird 45 are included. For new installs a swap file will be used instead of a swap partition. Upgrades from earlier versions are not affected.
