Testing Panel Intelligent Hiding

As mentioned previously on the list  we are only specifically calling
for testing as things turn up needing testing.
So - this is the first one of those. This is available for testing in
Trusty, Utopic and Vivid. So not using the dev version shouldn't hold
anyone back here ;)
The staging ppa  holds these packages.
Currently there are a few updated packages there, currently we are only
interested in one : xfce4-panel.
This includes intelligent hiding - and it is this that we are wanting
/sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xubuntu-dev/xubuntu-staging/
/sudo apt-get update /
/sudo apt-get install xfce4-panel /
restart the panel from Alt +F2 using
Go to Panel Preferences > Display and set Automatically hide the panel
The panel should only hide when a window (maximised for instance) would
cover the panel. Moving an un-maximised window over the panel should
also hide the panel.
Please test this for at least a few days.
If you do happen across a bug, please report that upstream  and make
sure to add Intelligent Hiding to the bug title.
You can also reply to this thread with a link to that reported bug.
If you've not got ppa-purge installed, now might be a good time for that.
To remove the panel we are testing run
/sudo ppa-purge ppa:xubuntu-dev/xubuntu-staging/
