What is exo?

Exo is an Xfce library targeted at application development. It contains
various custom widgets and APIs extending the functionality of GLib and
GTK+. It also ships utilities for defining preferred applications,
mounting storage devices and more.


Release notes for 0.12.5
Bug Fixes:
- Fix typehead in ExoIconView (Xfce #15100)

Build Updates:
- Building libexo-1 can now be disabled (Xfce #15138, #15199)
  - Building documentation still requires libexo-1 since some older
symbols exists only in the GTK+ 2 library
- Several components were moved around to align with the correct library
  - Helpers are now installed in exo-2 paths, and exo-helper-1 has been
renamed to exo-helper-2 to follow the library version
  - Pixmaps were moved to an unversioned path (pixmaps/exo) since they
are used by both versions of the library
  - exo-compose-mail has dropped the library version since it does not
depend on either version of the library
- The expansion-to-defined flag was re-enabled

Translation Updates: 
Albanian, Bulgarian, Danish, Dutch, English (United Kingdom), Finnish,
Indonesian, Korean, Spanish
