Issues in Xfce 4.18 Milestone


  • Add setting for absolute pixel-based width #99
  • Switch to xfce_gtk_image_menu_item (since libxfce4ui 4.15.2)


  • Add wrapper for xfconf to create GObject bindings to make porting of panel plugins from rc files easier
  • Fix xfce_panel_plugin_position_menu (or deprecate it)
  • Re-introduce xfce_panel_image in plugins and improve it (use GIcon or icon_name instead of always pixbuf), see https://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=15888

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)

Directory Menu



  • Look into getting app icons at different icon sizes (libwnck patch?)


  • 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
