This distro uses LXDE and an altered lxpanel. They describe it as:

  * lxpanel based on lxpanelx with some improvements from ROSA

I am not sure if these improvements have been made available upstream? 
Maybe they have additional plugins that some people are looking for. 
Thought it warranted a mention so those concerned can check it out. Link
