Xfce4 4.10.2+

posted Nov 28, 2013, 7:15 AM by Jack Radigan   [ updated Nov 28, 2013, 7:54 AM ]
The 75+ packages for this release are now available in the upgrades repository.  In addition to the 4.10.2 packages, this release includes the following 4.11 packages; xfwm4, xfce4-session, libxfce4ui, with the following changes:

xfwm4
The 4.11 release allowed several patches from Ruslan Kabatsayev's kde49 release to be integrated, which were removed in 4.8 due to undesirable artifacts when a menu opened over an adjacent window.

xfce4-session
The 4.11 release has been modified with a refactored GNOME keyring startup and individual control for the keyring components. The GNOME and KDE service startup controls are no longer enabled by default for this release.

xfce4-notifyd
Includes a custom notify theme for the Centrych desktop profile.

While a simple package upgrade will work without incident, there is an upgrade-centrych script included in centrych-desktop-support (1.2.16 and later) that removes a few unneeded packages.

More details are available in the release notes and the upgrade notes.  A video overview has also been posted.

Enjoy.  And, to those in the U.S., Happy Thanksgiving.

Note: a set of 12.04.3 disc images are being prepped and tested. I hope to release them later this evening.
