 ====== xfce4-session 4.10 Roadmap ====== ====== xfce4-session 4.10 Roadmap ======
-===== Refactor and Modularize the Shutdown Helper =====+See also the [[releng:4.10:roadmap:accessibility|accessibility roadmap]] page. 
 +===== [FINISHED] Use Xfpm for power actions ===== 
 +The shutdown code mess currently in xfce4-session is more or less copied from [[releng:4.10:roadmap:xfce4-power-manager|Xfce4-power-manager]]. We've therefore decided to include Xfce4-power-manager in the core of Xfce so it can provide a DBus service Xfce4-session can use to perform power actions using upower and consolekit.
-The code in xfce4-session that deals with logging outsuspending, shutting down etc. is a bit of a mess. It mixes code related to PolicyKit, ConsoleKit and sudo. We would like to clean this up in order to improve the code quality and error reporting. An idea would be to have a plugin interface for this and have plugins for PolicyKit, ConsoleKit and sudo that are processed after each other. We could consolidate the error messages and determine what to do way better than we do at the moment.+When the user it either not authorized or the service is not available (platforms that do not support upower and consolekit, like openBSD) Xfce4-session will fall-back to sudo.</del>
-Completed: 0% \\ +Code was cleaned up and all nice stuff it included, but xfce4-session still has it's own upower handling internally.

 +===== [FINISHED] Clean Session Button =====
 +It seems to be quite common people want to clear they entire session, so maybe we can add a simple button (with question dialog) to the settings dialog, and remove $XDG_CACHE_HOME/sessions.

 +===== [FINISHED] Remove Xfce4-tips =====
 +The tips were heavily outdated and the dialog looked ugly. We've discussed this a bit and came to the conclusing that probably nobody reads the tips so unless we get complains the code will be [[http://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-session/commit/?id=64bc14b65c1253ca041d645dba03715e5a27a36f|removed]].
