What is xfce4-embed-plugin?

Xfce4-embed-plugin is a plugin that enables the embedding of arbitrary
application windows into the Xfce panel. The window is resized into the
panel space available, and the associated program can be automatically
launched if it is not open.

Example uses include embedding an instant messaging buddy list, a mail
client's new mail ticker, a simple media application, or a fancy clock
or timer. Combining with Xfce's ability to auto-hide panels can make
this very convenient.


Release notes for 1.0.0
Do one thing, do it well, and compile it as a module.
Also, there are now translations. Thanks, translators!

This plugin is feature-complete (until Wayland comes around). Have fun!
