A slightly belated congrats on the panel update. I notice that the window buttons no longer flicker if a window outline happens to be between the mouse and the window button. Nice bug fix! smile

One thing that I think is not the best is when multiple windows are open and they are grouped the little number of instances in the white circle appears directly over the center of the icon, now, rather than the corner. This very much obscures the icon. I wonder if there is a way to keep that number in the corner of the icon, like it was, perhaps with some GTK CSS?

Maybe you're talking about https://gitlab.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-panel/-/issues/676? It's a regression introduced in 4.17.4 though, but maybe you're not using 4.17.3 even though you commented here?

Anyway it's fixed and to be released in 4.18.1 soon smile
