Xubuntu 12.04 released

New default shortcut keys

Max window horiz.
Alt F6
Max. window vert.
Alt F7
Max. window (h+v)
In addition, you can stick a window (making it appear in all workspaces) with Alt F8. The shortcuts for moving and resizing windows have been removed in favor of more powerful mouse gestures. Naturally, if you need these shortcuts, you can enable them from the Settings Manager.
Super W
Firefox
Super M
Thunderbird
Super F
Thunar
Super T
Terminal
The aforementioned shortcuts are bound to exo-open launchers. This means they will always open any browser, mail reader, file manager or terminal emulator you have set as the default. In addition, there is six new application shortcut keys:
  • Super R for Application finder
  • Super E for Leafpad
  • Super 1 for Gmusicbrowser
  • Super 2 for Pidgin
  • Super 3 for Abiword
  • Super 4 for Gnumeric
