FYI, 4.16, just transitioned into Debian testing, so it looks like it will make it into Bullseye!!

And it works very well already. Can't wait D11 stable release.

Sorry to say that XFCE 4.16 is an step back. Thanks for your time and effort but I really dislike the result. So time to change desktop. I hate gnome shell and XFCE desktop version by version reminds me more Gnome Shell.

Well, looks like just about every application that switches from gtk2 to gtk3 makes a step back. Firefox, Gnome, lesser applications like Gajim, and now XFCE. While XFCE used GTK3 for a while, it was not that bad; now, however, GTK2 support was completely removed (), and Client Side Decorations were introduced, which completed the "dark side migration".

I don't want to sound overly negative, and I very much appreciate the effort that went into creating XFCE (which I used during most of my Linux usage history). However, due to the changes in this release, I'll likely switch to a different DE.

Re: Xfce 4.16 Released!

Hi to all .

I just installed XFCE 4.16 in my Devuan system. It looks great.
Congratulations to the developers for keeping alive a stable , distraction-ads free , simple & elegant libre desktop.

Being in strict budget and with the energy and heat costs skyrocketing (io europe/greece at least) i wish i could donate more that a 'coffee' that i just did :-)
I dont have twitter to tweet about it so i toot it  in my fosstotodon account.. and in my mastodon.social account.

Since opencollective doesnt support mastodon i used xfce's screenshot app to take and image from my opencollective donation and paste it immediately in my mastodon's toot edit box. Very handy utilitie !

i want to ask if are you considering also alternatives modes of  micropayments support , sth in the logic of flattr or crypto.
For a crypto example I could send you a 0.01 LTC (which is equal to 1  euro now days) and pay 1 eurocent in transaction fees).

ps: i just show that opencollective offers crypto (warzone 2100 has that option)
