Re: What's New in Xfce

ANNOUNCE: xfce4-power-manager 1.5.0 released

What is xfce4-power-manager?
============================
This software is a power manager for the Xfce desktop, Xfce power manager manages the power sources on the computer and the devices that can be controlled to reduce their power consumption (such as LCD brightness level, monitor sleep). In addition, xfce4-power-manager provides a set of freedesktop-compliant DBus interfaces to inform other applications about current power level so that they can adjust their power consumption, and it provides the inhibit interface which allows applications to prevent automatic sleep actions via the power manager; as an example, the operating system’s package manager should make use of this interface while it is performing update operations.

Release notes for 1.5.0
=======================
New development release of xfce4-power-manager. This release marks the transition to several new technologies. Consequently we're looking forward to
more testers (and supposedly bugreports) with this first release.

* Port to Gtk3 (Eric, Simon)
* Port to gdbus (Peter)
* Drop LXDE panel plugin
* Bumped dependencies:
- UPower>= 0.99 
- Gtk3 >= 3.14
- libxfce4ui-2

* Miscellaneous improvements:
- The settings dialog has been ported to GtkApplication
- The panel plugin now uses UPower's icon names directly and is consequently compatible with all major icon themes out of the box
- The panel plugin uses symbolic icons
- The systray icon uses colored icons
- The settings dialog now has a unique icon name (xfce4-power-manager-settings)

* And finally some bug fixes:
- Fix for panel icon on Desktop systems (Bug #11840)
- Never use symbolic icons for the systray (Bug #11756)
- Look up the schema for light-locker's settings recursively (Bug #11488)
- Don't crash when UPower returns "" for the icon-name (Bug #11756)

* Translation updates:
Asturian, Chinese (China), Chinese (Taiwan), Czech, French, German, Greek, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Kazakh, Korean, Lithuanian, Malay, Norwegian Bokmål, Polish, Portuguese, Portuguese (Brazilian), Russian, Serbian, Slovak, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, Thai, Ukrainian.

I like the way they changed things so that the settings for both AC and battery power are side-by-side now instead of in separate areas.

Re: What's New in Xfce

It'd be nice if the battery percentage (I'm not real interested in "time remaining," since my laptop is not always doing the same tasks at the same screen brightness with the same CPU usage/speed, so it's about as accurate (methinks) as the nearest palm reader) was just a straightforward option in the applet's preferences.

It'd also be nice if I could make it display an outline of a battery with the percentage inside, instead of (IMHO) having to waste space by displaying both a percentage and a separate graphical representation of the battery. If the percentage shows 100%, I don't need a picture of a full battery; if the percentage is 50%, I don't need to see a picture of a ½-full one, either. Plus, if I could place the percentage inside the battery, not having anything else but the percentage and the outline would make the percentage much more readable.

MDM
