Re: What's New in Xfce

I've stopped posting all the bug fixes. There's been a flurry of them lately and its hard to keep up. You can always see them yourself by clicking in this link. I just wanted to drop a post about some recent xfwm4 bug fixes/enhancements that have caught my eye:

- Add new default themes (To better integrate with GTK3/GNOME apps. Also include hdpi and xhdpi variants.)
- Add support for GTK frame extents (This is required for proper positionning and resizing of CSD windows from GTK3/GNOME.)
- Fix fullscreen mode not working correctly for QT apps (bug #8563)
- Add support for NET_WM_STATE_FOCUSED (bug #11067)
- Remove maximize button from non-resizable windows (bug #10910)
- Fix maximizing when window is tiled vertically or horizontally (bug #10084)
- Extremely paranoid hostname lookup (bug #11289)

xfce4-taskmanager has also seen alot of changes lately.

Are you using the development version of xfce-screenshooter? Because if you're still using the stable 1.8.1 version then, no, that version is still the same as it was last week.

Re: What's New in Xfce

Thunar now has the ability to display file sizes in regular MB (as other OS's/DE's do) as well as its regular MiB:

Binary unchecked (MiB - 1000):

Binary checked (MB - 1024):

EDIT: This is bug #10864.

Re: What's New in Xfce

You're assisting in the perpetuation of a fallacy.

Just thought I'd mention that.

I still appreciate you're updates on the state of XFCE development, though. smile

I don't see this option after updating Thunar in Arch Linux. How do you enable or use it?

Re: What's New in Xfce

Sorry, I was making a joke. A lot of us have expressed the wish for a split view option, and I was needling ToZ about it not being in the release.

Re: What's New in Xfce

ANNOUNCE: xfce4-screenshooter 1.8.2 released

xfce4-screenshooter 1.8.2 is now available for download from
 
  http://archive.xfce.org/src/apps/xfce4- … .2.tar.bz2
  http://archive.xfce.org/src/apps/xfce4- … ar.bz2.md5
  http://archive.xfce.org/src/apps/xfce4- … r.bz2.sha1
  http://archive.xfce.org/src/apps/xfce4- … bz2.sha256


What is xfce4-screenshooter?
============================

This application allows you to capture the entire screen, the active
window or a selected region. You can set the delay that elapses before
the screenshot is taken and the action that will be done with the
screenshot: save it to a PNG file, copy it to the clipboard, open it
using another application, or host it on ZimageZ or imgur.com, free
online image hosting service.

A plugin for the Xfce panel is also available.

Website:
  http://goodies.xfce.org/projects/applic … eenshooter


Release notes for 1.8.2
=======================
This version brings a new upload option to imgur.com, loosely based on a
patch from Sebastian Waisbrot. It has been updated to work with imgur
API v3, and the upload code has been refactored so that it should be
easy to add more upload services in the future.

  * Enhancements:
    - Add imgur.com as possible upload option (bug #6899)
    - Add appdate file (bug #11202)
    - Make region selection with compositing on more usable on darker
      backgrounds (bug #9592).
    - Updated translations (thanks to translators!)

  * Bugs fixed:
    - Fix keyboard navigation between choices (bug #11325)
    - Fix build with automake 1.13 (bug #10030)
    - Use filename-friendly date format for saved files (bug #8445)
