New xfce panel clock for 4.10

Quote from the 4.8 tour page:

Xfce 4.8 tour wrote:

An Xfce release without a new clock mode would not be a true Xfce release. Let us introduce you the 'fuzzy' clock mode!

Sadly, the current release seems to have broken with the tradition, which made me a bit sad.
So... I simply decided to write my own panel clock =P

This is my new hexadecimal clock:

It has two modes: true and fake hex.

Fake hex is a normal digital clock with its values in hex notation (screenshot).
True hex displays the current hexadecimal time.

Yeah, I'm kinda obsessed with anything hexadecimal, and when I first started using Xfce (4.6)
I was a little bit disappointed to see a binary, but no hex clock.


If anyone is interested, here's the patch against xfce4-panel master: http://pastebin.com/S78bVjqi

Very nice!

Perchance do you know of a binary clock?

About clock wishlist... :-)
it would be nice to merge, in the future, clock applet, datetime and orage.
Each one has some features that other are missing, and it may be confusing to select one.

For example, only datetime has a dropdown calendar, but this is not integrated with orage calendar.
only standard clock may may be used as analog, fuzzy ... standard clock can open orage, but doesn't have a dropdown calendar...
only orage clock may show globaltime.

So you have many features, but you must give up on something to have something else.
For example, I have given up on dropdown calendar and using standard clock (with orage on double click)...

It would be nice to have only one clock but with all those nice features ... Something like the standard clock (digital, analog, fuzzy...) with a dropdown calendar integrating orage appointments and todo lists and the possibility to show globaltime (and maybe weather for those locations??) Everything should be kept customizable like now, with pango markup and many many configuration items for fine tuning :-)

You mean one with true binary time?

I think Sexagesimal is more readable...
