Hiho Xfce users :)

  I have released version 1.4, the final version from the 1.3 series,
of the notes plugin.  There are most minor bug fixes.

  Here are the changes:

  * Important: now the plugin uses a unique RC file, therefore be
    careful if you want to restore your old configuration, including
    your notes.  Your current configuration file has a name like
    "$HOME/.config/xfce4/panel/xfce4-notes-plugin-<random number>.rc".
    I suggest you to create a backup of this file, and after you have
    installed the new version quit xfce4-panel, _or_ remove the notes
    plugin from the panel.  Finally you can copy the backup file to
    "notes.rc". You can restart xfce4-panel, _or_ add the notes plugin
    to the panel.

  * Unshade the notes when the window is being called (popup command,
    or panel button).  Do also this on a new note.

  * Cycle through the notes: Ctrl+Pg_down on the last note brings to
    the first note.

  * Use a "settings" icon instead of the "panel" for the Properties

  * Don't focus the tabs in the notebook.

  * Bug fix with the task_switcher initial state.

  New options:

  * "Always show at startup".  Now the default behavior is to save the
    last state of the visibility and to restore it, so check this
    button if you want your notes open after you log back in Xfce.

  * "Show a resize grip".  Let's you resize the note without knowing
    anything about the shortcut awesomeness :P  Alt+Shift+<Arrow>, or
    Alt+Right mouse button.

  The Future:

  * Support multiple windows.

  * Reorder notes inside the notebook (GTK+2 >= 2.10).

  * Your feedback :)

All the best,
