* Better thumbnailing (currently things don't have autogenerated thumbnails, sometimes these can be generated by external app, no thumbnails on desktop though)
+
== Upstream ==
* Implement Tabs/Panels in Thunar
 
* Make default desktop prettier -- less spacing, no or almost no background in icon labels
 
* Keyring support in midori
 
* Time/Calendars applets are a mess -- need one that can do sensibly both.
 
* Easier dual head (currently only cloning is supported via gui config)
 
* Better pulseaudio support (even though the sound is generated through pulseaudio, we cannot easily access pa settings)
 
* Ability to turn tapping on touchpad on (setting it via gnome utils does not seem to make it work under xfce)
 
* Same widget theme for GTK+2 and GTK+3 (currently does not exist)
 
* Add your suggestion here...

Create/Find/Use same looking theme for gtk2/gtk3. People who wish to help with nodoka — either coding or design are more than welcome.
