What is xfce4-clipman-plugin?

Xfce4 Clipman Plugin is a clipboard manager for Xfce. It keeps the
clipboard contents around while it is usually lost when you close an
application. It is able to handle text and images, and has a feature to
execute actions on specific text selections by matching them against
regular expressions.


Release notes for 1.2.0

After a long time without any release, here is Clipman again.

- Ported documentation to Mallard and moved it into the xfce4-docs 
- Add optional build-dependency against XTEST to be able to paste 
  content as soon as it has been selected from the history. The 
  setting is hidden under /tweaks/paste-on-activate and is off by 
  default. Its possible values are 0 for deactivated, 1 to paste with 
  Ctrl+V and 2 to paste with Shift+Ins.
- Add option "Reverse history order" inside the Settings dialog.
- Add hidden setting /tweaks/popup-at-pointer, works only when
  triggered through xfce4-popup-clipman.
- Anchor the Regex pattern within ^<pattern>$, before it was only
  anchored with ^<pattern>.
- New Regex dialog available within the Action dialog that appears
  upon a click on a button beneath the Action pattern to be able to
  test the Regex.
- New "Reset" button in the Actions tab of the Settings dialog to
  reset the actions with the one installed system-wide.
- Bug 6633: Avoid multiple popups of the actions menu.
- Bug 6323: Check instance types of GtkClipboard.
- Bug 6324: Properly remove cache files on history clear.
- Bug 6698: Use themed icon "clipman" or fallback to "edit-paste" for
  the panel icon.
- Bug 6522: Readd an inhibit.
- Bug 6853: Port to libxfce4ui.
- Bug 6069 6119 6120: Fixed possible NULL values.
- The clipboard-manager from Gnome is back-ported inside
  xfce4-settings, still this one has been tweaked.
