Cairo-Dock 3.4 is now available!

TL;DR: what are the main changes?
 * Menus: added the possibility to customise them
 * Style: unified the style of all components of the dock
 * Better integration with Compiz (e.g. when using the Cairo-Dock session) and Cinnamon
 * Applications Menu and Logout applets will wait the end of an update before displaying notifications
 * Various improvements for Applications Menu, Shortcuts, Status-Notifier and Terminal applets
 * Start working on EGL and Wayland support
 * And as always ... various bug fixes and improvements!

Important note: We just switched from BZR to GIT on Github, feel free to fork!
And GTK 2 support has been dropped.

A new tiny feature has been added in Cairo-Dock 3.2.99 Alpha 2: The launcher can be animated until the corresponding application opens!
Screencast: (when using a delay of 3 seconds before launching the application)
This feature is available in our BZR repos and it will be available in our '*weekly ppa*' (for Ubuntu users) in a few hours!
I hope you'll enjoy it ;)

We're still looking for new themes and/or new versions of all already available themes.
e.g.: Our 'MacOSX' theme is a bit old (made a few years ago) and none of us are using and have already used MacOSX more than 15min :)

Maybe are you interested to contribute to this project by proposing new versions of these themes? Or by proposing new (original?) themes? Maybe we can add a few of them on our servers ;)
Feel free to start a new topic on our forum:

And feel free to add new screenshots on our website ;)
Share screenshots of your desktop with other ;)

Cairo-Dock 3.2.99 Alpha 2 is now available!
What's new since the version 3.2.1? Not so many visible things but the structure of the core has been rewritten! The source code is now a bit easier to understand and maintained (easier to support more X servers, etc.) due to the use of the same structure (object oriented) and should be more optimised.

Note that a few bugs have been fixed and a few features have been introduced: more options to package a theme (custom icons will be added to the theme), Application Menu applet has a '*search box*' to quickly find an application, a better integration of Cinnamon, LoginD is used by default if available, PowerManager applet now better handle the case where a device is added / removed (and resuming from suspend), new functions available on DBus API, a annoying bug with the translations of third-party applets has been fixed, etc.

Feel free to test it and report any bugs/ideas ;)

And of course, feel free to help our very very small team ;) =>
