Xfce 4.6

Xfce 4.6 is due to release within the next couple of months, and as everyone knows, I'm a big fan of the Xfce desktop environment. I've been using a subversion checkout for several weeks now, and as expected, it's more of the same - in other words, it's exactly what we've come to expect of the Xfce developers: fast, attractive, and stable.

In case anyone running -current wants to give it a try, I've just pushed some packages to http://xfce46.rlworkman.net along with a few selected "goodies" compiled against it. Be sure to check out the xfce4-power-manager addon; it's a much needed and long awaited addition to Xfce, and was written by a Slackware user too :-)

Honestly, it pretty much looks just like 4.4.x :)

I've been trying it since yestarday. Really fast and stable. I've noticed some enhancement about desktop functions... Multiple desktop items selection is useful and welcome. A useful thing would be also a thunar plugin for browsing samba shares I think. Cheers :)
