Folks, this is exciting news – Xubuntu core is (almost officially) here! We've been working on this for a while – not really behind closed doors, but without announcing it – and finally the day has come to put out the news.

Xubuntu core will be great for many who are low on bandwidth or who are simply not satisfied with our default selection of apps (note that we really do our best to keep sane defaults though!).

The 15.04 release is on the horizon! Have some time today or in the next few days and want to help us get the release out the door? Run a few Release Candidate upgrade tests. See the link for details.

Any GTK/GStreamer folks out there?  Mugshot has a new breakage in Ubuntu 15.04, where the camera window no longer draws the camera video.  If I don't set the window handle, then the video feed shows as normal outside of the dialog.  Do I need to handle a new message or something?

Really looking forward to the benefits of Gtk+ 3 (even though the porting will be boring as hell).
As an example of a really nice feature I'm looking forward to, I've ported the xfce4-power-manager's plugin (of which we have a Gtk+ 3 version already) to use symbolic icons. Never again wrongly colored icons in your panel. \o/

(Screenshots show the plugin with Greybird and Adwaita)

Really nice to see that some people don't just copy-paste screenshots from the official Xfce tour but go the extra mile.
This tour shows even more features and maybe really everything that's new about #xfce412

Awesome work, +Alin Andrei !
 
A Look At What's New In Xfce 4.12 [Video, Screenshots]: http://www.webupd8.org/2015/03/a-look-at-whats-new-in-xfce-412-video.html

After almost three years of development, Xfce 4.12 was released over the weekend and it includes numerous improvements, including a new Display settings dialog with proper multi-monitor support, improved alt-tab with two new modes, support for loading GTK3 plugins for the Xfce Panel, client-side decorations (header bars) support and much more. Let's take a look at what's new!

We're just one week away from the next stable #Xfce  release, 4.12.  We need as much help as possible as we make our way through some remaining bugs and translations, hit to link for screenshots and to find out more.  
After what seems like an eternity, a new release of Xfce is just around the corner. A lot of work has gone into the next release, slated for release in 1 week.

Thanks to the great +Andreas Proschofsky we've got a nice (albeit understandably brief) review of our deeds in one of Austria's quality newspapers (online version, in german).

+Björn Schießle  There is the xfce4-pulseaudio-plugin which already works but is still under heavy development. You can use it in combination with e.g. pavucontrol.

If you don't use pulseaudio and gst0.10 is still in your distribution, it's likely that the mixer still works for you.

I have to say - the default Alt+Scroll zoom is the single most brilliant little thing I've seen a desktop implement in years.
You see lots of little features that seem brilliant in things. And then often you forget them until you stumble upon them again in a few months or years.
That zoom mode is so simple and so useful. I've used it since I first noticed it and find myself sad and missing it when I happen to be anywhere but on XFCE.
Maybe it would be simple to set it up that way in any keyboard mapping app or UI. I don't know. But it's simply brilliant to have as default. And whoever thought of it or stole the idea and implemented it here is brilliant for doing it.
Good job!

Since Skunnyk has blogged about the recent goings on in Xfce-land, I thought I'd just steal the nice screenshot he made of a feature I added to the appearance settings dialog last week.

That feature was a nice surprise, few days ago, when i downloaded the devel version xfce from AUR.  The background dialogue is broken, but i am keeping it anyway.  Xfce needs to be a staple.  It follows desktop standards.
