The Lubuntu developers are making a number of small, yet important, changes to their distribution's system installer to provide additional flexibility. Lubuntu's Calamares installer will soon support XFS as a file system option and users will be able to set a weak password on their user account, overriding the installer's warning against simple passwords. A post on the project's blog states: "Before the last newsletter, we enabled password checking. After some vocal feedback, we asked the community on our development mailing list what they thought about it, and an overwhelming majority had the same opinion; it should warn, but you should still be able to set a weak password. While the Lubuntu Team very strongly recommends choosing a strong password when installing Lubuntu, we have disabled password checking." The Lubuntu blog post also answers questions about the distribution's planned migration to a Wayland display server.
