New Artix Plasma/LXQt and MATE/LXDE, community editions

After last month’s releases two more releases have come out.  We emphasize that those are all “community editions”, not official Artix images.  The last official Artix image published is over 7 months old and it may take some fancy pacman work to bring it up to date, while its net-install will require about 1GB of additional downloads to update included packages.  This is a bit unfair to those struggling with low-speed and volume cost connections, since the size of the image downloaded is practically all useless and nearly all packages have to redownloaded.

Official Announcement and screenshots

On those double desktop images the autologin takes you to one of them, you can log out and once back to the Display Manager you can select the other desktop and log back in again.  While most distributions try to minimize the size of the downloaded image Artix seems eager to double their size.
