I was wondering whether Mousepad has been dropped by Xfce and/or its development has been discontinued...
I don't see it mentioned in the Xfce or Xfce-goodies websites and it has also been replaced by Leafpad in Xubuntu, so I'm not sure if it's still alive or not.
Acer Aspire 5920 | Debian Squeeze | Xfce
It seems discontinued, anyway you'll better way a developer to confirm my idea, I'm not sure about this.
Honestly, I just use geany and don't need other gui editors, but maybe some users will prefer simpler editors...
On OpenSuse, a package maintainer said that it was discontinued (back in release of Opensuse 12.1, meaning Nov 2011). They suggested me Leafpad that for it's a clone, except for the logo :-)
Xfce is NOT Xubuntu. Bugs in Xubuntu don't mean that Xfce is buggy ...
It’s been dropped from the official Arch Linux repos, but is still available from the AUR and builds and works fine.
