What is xfdashboard?

xfdashboard provides a GNOME shell dashboard like interface for use with
Xfce desktop. It can be configured to run to any keyboard shortcut and
when executed provides an overview of applications currently open
enabling the user to switch between different applications. The search
feature works like Xfce's app finder which makes it convenient to search
for and start applications.


Release notes for 0.7.90
xfdashboard-0.7.90 "On my way to 0.8" was released on 2020-11-17.

This is a release candidate for upcoming stable version 0.8.0.

* New feature: Support of animation if an actor is destroyed. It
  will be marked as destroyed by adding a CSS pseudo class 
  "destroying". The actor will be destroyed finally when animation
* The allocation animation will not be applied when actor is
  created. This behaviour has changed. If an actor should do an
  allocation animation also at the first time shown (created) the
  properties for x/y coordinates and/or width, height must be
  specified at "created" animation
* New application icon which follows rDNS naming
* Updated for consistency
* Use xfce library function instead of implementing own version
* [plugin] Hot corner: Support also additional monitors and not
  primary monitor only. This option is configurable by user.
* Enviroment varible XFDASHBOARD_PLUGINS_PATH supports now more
  than one additional path with a colon-seperated list
* Reduced number of translatable string drastically
* Lots of new (id,nl,bg,nb,sl,sq,sv,zh_CN,pt_BR) and updated
  translations (da,de,es,fr,gl,he,lt,pl,ru,sr,tr)
* Thanks to all translator and contributors
