The Lightweight Qt Desktop Environment

Release libqtxdg 3.0.0

Today we’ve released version 3.0.0 of libqtxdg. This is the first needed piece for the upcoming LXQt 0.12.0 release. The most visible and noteworthy changes are:

  • qiconloader: Reuse Qt implementation
  • xgiconloader: Reworks the unthemed/pixmap search
  • xdgiconloader: Puts the hicolor at the end of the theme hierarchy
  • xdgiconloader: Fix XdgIconLoaderEngine::actualSize()
  • xdgiconloader: Support symbolic SVG icons
  • xdgiconloader: Honor “FolowsColorScheme” theme hint


There are some changes packagers should take care of:

  • Bump Major to 3, it might be that new packages names are needed
  • This release adds a minimum Qt version requirement (5.6.1)
  • This release also adds the development tool qtxdg-iconfinder - so maybe a new utils package is needed

A full list of changes is in the CHANGELOG file.
