Window Buttons: It's now much harder to tell if a window is minimized

Before, Window Buttons would put "[" and "]" around the window title to show you if it was minimised. Now it slightly fades the colour of the text.
It's much less visually clear, and just looks bad also depending on the theme that's being used.
Is there a way to restore the old behaviour?

Re: Window Buttons: It's now much harder to tell if a window is minimized

There is a hidden setting to restore that functionality:

Previously the default was to show "[%s]" as window title for minimized
windows. The old behavior can be re-enabled by setting the hidden
"label-decorations" setting (since 4.14) to TRUE.

So basically, create a new label-decorations property in the xfconf tree for the tasklist plugin, or the following command should do it for you:

xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -p $(xfconf-query -c xfce4-panel -lv | grep tasklist | awk '{print $1}')/label-decorations -t bool -s true --create

Note: this will only work if you use only one Tasklist (Window Buttons) plugin.
