            Bug ID: 12686
           Summary: Use MemAvailable to estimate free RAM
    Classification: Panel Plugins
           Product: Xfce4-systemload-plugin
           Version: git
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: Medium
         Component: General
          Assignee: goodies-dev at xfce.org
          Reporter: liquiderz at gmail.com
        QA Contact: goodies-dev at xfce.org
  Target Milestone: ---

When kernel is 3.14+, the plugin should prefer to use MemAvailable metric [1]
to estimate free RAM. Currently, files in /dev/shm are counted towards Cache
and as such marked as "freeish" which is not really the case.

I'd like to submit a patch is someone can promise a timely review/acceptance.
