I just talked to someone who included the decryption key to their database password in the same config file as the encrypted password. They argued that the sysadmins didn't have access to the code so they couldn't decrypt it. Also provided in the config file: the name of the encryption algorithm. #facepalm

Thoughts on something like this?

+Tom Beckmann would it be better implemented as a stand alone app or as a gala plugin?

+Heath Paddock yeah, but you'll need a gazillion hotkeys if you want various widths of the window while it's sticked to the left :)

Behind the scenes changes in super-wingpanel.

We've grown big enough that I've created a new project on launchpad. You can find it here: https://code.launchpad.net/super-wingpanel

If you're using my PPA (ppa:heathbar/super-wingpanel) then you have nothing to worry about. I've reached out to the community PPA to make sure they keep up to date as well. 

The big change is for anyone working directly with the code.

Unstable Testing  - 
 
To all who are interested: initial support for global menu has landed in super-wingpanel.

I want to emphasize that it's not very polished yet--there are still some bugs that need to be worked out. If you're willing to deal with some issues, instructions for enabling global menus can be found by searching this community.

iPad users: does your ipad charge slowly when plugged into USB in ubuntu? If your hardware supports it, you may can get it charging much more aggressively.

Surely it's better to plug into the mains power, as recommended for Android devices.

Assuming you have Numix installed, /usr/share/icons/Numix/scalable/actions/view-grid-symbolic.svg makes a nice applications button replacement.

WHERE DID YOU TAKE MY GLOBAL MENU?!!!!
I've set up a new PPA for daily (unstable) builds of super-wingpanel. If you want global menu and some of the other recent features, you're going to have to add the daily PPA. Be warned, you might encounter some bugs. 

ppa:heathbar/super-wingpanel-daily

For the rest of you, I've rolled back the recent changes to get you a more stable panel. If you're already using my current PPA, you should be rolled back to a more dependable version shortly. In other words, if you don't take any action, you're going to lose global menus.

ppa:heathbar/super-wingpanel

I'm also working with +Michael Langfermann to make sure that the community PPA will get the stable version of super-wingpanel. 

Thank you all for your patience through these growing pains.

I just want to say thanks for super wingpanel, I'm really enjoying using it and very happy to finally have the global menu feature.

Yep, super-wingpanel now supports using an image in place of the Applications button.

Black: http://www.heath-bar.com/blog/wp-content/uploads/2014/01/elementary-black.svg

Other new features: 
- Use markup to change color of Applications button (http://www.gtk.org/api/2.6/pango/PangoMarkupFormat.html)
- Show date/time in tray (instead of center)
- Position of window controls now respected
- Window title changed to app name (to save space)
- Other stuff I don't remember

Thanks to +Sergiy Kusch and +Francisco Javier Delgado del Hoyo for their recent contributions.

I think this is my first official #showyourlinuxdesktopfriday

+Heath Paddock if it is a bug, what should I do? report (if so I have to go?), or should I remain silent? sorry I am new to Linux. :)
