Benefit to Fedora
Fedora Xfce users will have the latest software from Upstream and enjoy an improved experience.
Xfce core packages need to be upgraded. (17 packages):
exo garcon gtk-xfce-engine libxfce4ui libxfce4util thunar thunar-volman tumbler xfce4-appfinder xfce4-dev-tools xfce4-panel xfce4-power-manager xfce4-session xfce4-settings xfconf xfdesktop xfwm4
How To Test
The full Xfce desktop tests should be run on this feature. Any common desktop functions should work.
- Exo is improved to look for more applications in preferred apps
- Allow building of some core packages against gtk3 for testing. gtk2 versions will still be the ones distributed.
- Remove old code thats no longer used in some components.
- Many minor improvements in the Thunar file manager.
- Improved history in xfce4-run
- Improved multi monitor support.
This feature depends on the upstream 4.12 release, which is scheduled at the 28th February or 1st March 2015, according to https://mail.xfce.org/pipermail/xfce4-dev/2015-February/031057.html
Packages would stay the 4.10 versions.
