Re: What's New in Xfce

Xfdesktop: Add optional blurring on shadow on text of icons. In general backported gtk+-3 code to implement it.. Add a new property called "shadow-blur-radius" on gtkrc file. If the "shadow-blur-radius" does not exist or is zero, it is shaded as before. If greater than 1, applies blur.

Here are some screenshots to demonstrate:

If you are referring to the power-manager-plugin (the icon that sits in the notification tray), then no, there doesn't appear to be a setting to hide it under defined conditions.

Re: What's New in Xfce

We appreciate your ongoing digests here, ToZ!

BTW: I saw the last couple of dev digest lists, and wonder if it might be useful to start a thread asking the Community for suggestions for Thunar development directions, features, etc?

OK. I will also post it on our forum, since a number of users have expressed preference for spacefm or pcmanfm,

Re: What's New in Xfce

@ ToZ

Do you have any news/rumours about improvements in alacarte et al.?

I do not want to sound negative, getting a lot of goodies and still asking for more. I really like what I see here.

But I also see 1001 threads about problems in editing menus on various hardware, various distributions and, most worrying,  various tools. I think that handling a menu would be a pretty isolated job from the XFCE package - but what else do they have in common??
