We're currently planning the participation of Xfce at FOSDEM 2009. If we can motivate enough developers to attend and can get a developer room, there will be talks and sessions held during the weekend.
This talk will be about the new Xfce release and it will also try to answer what comes after 4.6. Some of the new features of Xfce 4.6 will be presented and explained, the release process will be evaluated. Finally, we will give a feature preview for Xfce 4.8.
Speaker: Jannis Pohlmann is a 23-year-old computer science student living in Lübeck, Germany. He invests much of his free time into playing several instruments and Xfce, where he has contributed to a number of components over the years. He's also the Xubuntu Xfce Liaison and a Lunar Linux contributor.
Our second talk is especially targeted to software developers, distributions and other software vendors. It will cover the APIs and infrastructure provided by the Xfce project. We will explain libraries and tools, how they work together and how you can use them for your own software project or distribution. Special focus will be put on Xfconf and ways to extend Xfce.
Speaker: Stephan Arts is a 23-year-old IT professional living in The Netherlands. Stephan is practicing aikido and ballroom dancing besides developing on various components for Xfce in his spare time.
