Xfce 4.6 Alpha Available With New Features
Phoronix: Xfce 4.6 Alpha Available With New Features
The final release of the Xfce 4.6 desktop environment was supposed to come this month, but instead the first alpha release has finally come about. Xfce 4.4 was originally released in January of 2007, so it has been quite a while since this lightweight desktop environment has received a major update. This release though does introduce a fair number of changes, which we have covered in this article.
Gnome-light, low fat, low fibre...
So its coming late, well better that then never.
Its starting to look like gnome (panels, menulayout)
Its starting to work like gnome (gconf style)
Its starting to use/depending on 'gnomish' software (gstreamer)
Is that just me who thinks this is going to be 'gnome-light' a couple of releases down the river!?
