LXTerminal 0.3.0 released.

Terminal emulator of LXDE had no releases in long time. That does not mean there was nothing to do, and also does not mean nobody worked on it. Just no releases were ready. Few days ago new update was released, and we are happy to present it to you.

LXTerminal 0.1.11 released!

The 0.1.10 fixed the fake transparency of LXterminal but it broke transparency when using compiz. This release fixes this issue, it also fixes a small cosmetic bug with the number of visible lines on netbook computers.

LXTerminal 0.1.10 released!

Our fast and small terminal application is out in a new version. Mostly a minor update. However there is a Known bug in this release, the fake transperancy was restored but on the other hand transparancy with compiz was broken, the patch for compiz is trivial but to not hurt fake transperancy it is not trivial. See the bug report for further information.
