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.

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.

+Charlie Kravetz Rest assured that I (practically) never hardcode colors. Ever.

As some of you will have noticed, #xfwm4 received more attention again lately (welcome back, +Olivier Fourdan!).

One of the things I really appreciate is the new wireframe, which is drawn when moving, resizing or tiling windows (in case you have the two "hide content of windows" options checked and the compositor is enabled).
Very much looking forward to the next release!

+Alexander Eberspächer It'll very likely not be configurable, but corner-tiling (aka 25%) is underway, so there's that.

@vivid-testers: If you're using 15.04 #VividVervet daily, you'll notice that our default theme looks a bit broken currently, because Gtk3.14 just landed. Hang in there, the theme is already fixed and only stuck in the upload process.

So you can either wait a day or two or three or use the shimmerproject's daily PPA in order to get the fix now.

UPDATE: Based on some of the feedback we got from the previous taskman screener, here goes the updated version.

Heh, well no more new features for the upcoming release ;)
But for the next one, swap will be shown for sure

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.

Well, that was quick – here goes corner-tiling in #xfwm4 ! \o/

+Alexander Eberspächer  Right, I think devilspie might be what you're referring to. I also read about someone who wrote a python-tiling-wrapper for xfwm4, you could also look for that.

Feels like an informal "community-building appreciation day"

Some movement in a long-untouched app of Xfce: the task manager.
This is the experimental Gtk3 version of it, with better graphs, a filterbox and lotsa bugfixes underneath the hood.

Still work in progress though (courtesy of Landry, Peter and myself).
