Xfce Panel 4.16 Roadmap


  • Add dark theme switch in Appearance tab: DONE
  • Auto-hide animation (fade-out or move-out): DONE
  • Drop support for Gtk2 plugins and drop all related code: DONE
  • Fix border drawing to not only draw one outer border, but panels with <100% width should also have a left and right border: DONE
  • Switch to xfce_gtk_image_menu_item (libxfce4ui 4.15.2)



Applications Menu

  • Add support for Desktop Actions on right-click context menus instead of submenus (maybe better to do this in garcon)


  • Add support for Desktop Actions on right-click (in garcon): DONE
  • Add support for Desktop Actions on right-click (in the panel): DONE

Workspace Switcher

  • Improve theming (see grouping indicators for dark/bright bg decisions plus stackoverflow)
  • Ensure workspace wrapping when scrolling is the same as general workspace wrapping (possibly offer a setting in the properties dialog) - currently we ignore wnck wrapping
  • Add more options to workspace cycling (including disabling it, if libwnck allows for that)
  • Improve settings dialog (only show scrolling options when they apply, i.e. with the buttons): DONE
  • Add option to show workspace numbering on buttons: DONE



  • Look into getting app icons at different icon sizes (libwnck patch?)
  • Improve look of minimized windows (no more brackets): DONE
  • Review and merge “Start new instance” patch: DONE


  • Move grouping options to a separate - dynamically added - tab
  • Offer more options (hide group indicator, possibly re-add text style)
  • Add option to keep mouse-wheel cycling within the group (so you switch between the windows of one application only) - or adjust the cycling logic to prioritize groups


  • Support the custom icon size users can set in the panel: DONE (in MR)
  • Support for symbolic icons: DONE
