Xfce 4.4rc2 Released

This weekend, we just released the second release candidate in preparation for Xfce 4.4.0. Check out the list of changes from rc1, or go ahead and get to the downloads.

I’m really happy with this release (where xfdesktop is concerned, at least). I closed something like 26 bugs, and I’m much more comfortable with xfdesktop’s stability level. There are still some features that I wanted to get in for 4.4 that aren’t going to make it, but I think the desktop manager is pretty usable and stable, and works well at this point. Give it a try.

Oh, and if you’re bothered by the fact that icons that ‘fall off’ the screen (due to the icon size being too large) never reappear when you lower the icon size, grab the patch from this bug and apply it to rc2.
