Back in January we wrote about Moonlight as one of the latest Linux desktop environments under development and for getting July started they are out with their first alpha release.

Moonlight v0.5 Alpha is the first release and its aimed at hackers and developers wishing to forward their dream of "a simple, lightweight, functional and beautiful desktop environment." Moonlight is written against the Qt5 tool-kit and the desktop environment is designed to be very modular. Moonlight shares some goals and code with the LXQt lightweight desktop project.

Those wishing to try out this first development release of Moonlight DE can find the code on GitHub and the alpha release announcement can be found from their Google Groups.
