hi all,

i'm testing xfce4 from svn , i packaged it some days ago and i can use
it without any problems ... until now :).

It's really cool! the panel is exactly what i would, i still think
that a support for a system menu would be nice ... anyway i love it.

the end session dialog now uses icons.... and that's fine for ubuntu
desktop road map.

even xfdesktop has had some improvements, but i can't say i like.

Is it possible to split that package in xfdesktop and xfce4-menu ?

still no desktop icons, and i need them for my project ... here an app
i'm coding:


i need to add a gtk menu and the goal is to get something similar to
gnome desktop icons stuff. anyway the hardest job has been done and
those drawing areas have a transparent background and they are even
connected to signals ...

i'll had a support on my volume manager (that now works even with
notification-daemon 0.3.3), but that app is usable without it.

this time i'll use desktop files for text, actions and so on ... here
an xml file is to much ... for sure :)

another feature that i like is the possibility to switch off the
alt+l_click to move windows .. some artists reported they need to use
windows key for that or they'll lose some features using  apps like
gimp , inkscape .....

there is then pyxfce ... that i would try to pkge ... what should i do
to became a maint of that pkge ?
is there anyone already interested on it ?

then ... how the development is going ? i don't see any message since time ...
