In addition to the new Xfce release, the 15.04 release has the following highlights:

  • New/Updated Xubuntu Light/Dark colorschemes in Mousepad, Terminal
  • Mousepad colorscheme set to Xubuntu Light by default
  • Better appearance for QT applications out of the box (default to GTK theme)
  • Redundant File Manager (Settings) menu entry removed
