4.16: Two different statustray plugins

I upgraded my Debian 10 (Buster) to Debian 11 (Bullseye).

Now I can see two different statustray plugins available in for the panel. But I am not sure which one it referes to on the xfce website or the debian package tracker. I only have the German names on the panels objects list.
They are called:

- "Status Tray-Erweiterung" (this must be the "old" one that was available in Debian 10, also)
- "Modul zur Statusbenachrichtigung" (this is new for me and maybe was introducied in a younger version of XFCE?)

Is one of them deprecated maybe?

The Status Tray plugin is the new plugin as of 4.15. It combines the older Notification Area and Status Notifier plugins into one. I guess that during the upgrade, debian didn't remove the older, deprecated plugin.

Thanks for that info.

Can you give me something like a full identifier (name, binary name, gitlab url, debian package name, etc) for both items?

I would open a debian ticket if I am sure about the package/binary name.

Re: 4.16: Two different statustray plugins

The Status Tray plugin is part of xfce4-panel now (replaces the notification area - systray). I'm not sure how debian packages the older one - looks like there are two possible packages (xfce4-statusnotifier-plugin and/or xfce4-sntray-plugin). Do have either of those packages installed?

For reference of deprecation, see: https://docs.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfc … ugin/start.
