Dear Ubuntu users and developers,

as you know the quit applet was changed in Intrepid. I believe there is
sufficient potential to improve it further on. For this reason the
QuitAppletPlus project [1] was started and it's ready for your feedback
now! :) 

It's not a replacement for the current Intrepid fast-switch-user applet,
the ideas from both should be merged.

- quit actions are easy available, without overloading the view
- more intuitive action names and icons for inexperienced users
- configurable quit applet menu design/behavior
- protection against accidentally choosing wrong actions without "Are
you sure?"-confirmations
- extended quit options, hidden by default
- alternative approach to protect other logged-in users if you perform
shut down or restart
- graphical countdown by automatic quit
- and finally you can power off the computer only with one mouse click!

See the project wiki [2] for more details, screenshots and installation

Just test it and say what you think about it [3][4]. It's _only_ a
graphical prototype so you can test it without any fear :)

Kind Regards,
Roman Friesen (krokosjablik)
