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 1.1.0

This release is the first to come with a good daemon, it is picked from
the gnome-settings-daemon. I recommend it and would be glade to see this
happen in other projects like Parcelite. It is a better solution than
waiting for clipboard changes as it restores the clipboard content with
all the pre-existing X11 atoms.

  - Settings dialog is an external application xfce4-clipman-settings. 
Optional support for libunique to make the settings dialog unique.
  - Switched to GIO for file monitoring support over the actions XML
file. Minimum version requirement for glib bumped to 2.16.
  - The bundle "standalone app/panel plugin" is splitted in two
  - The autostart behavior has changed. Now when the standalone
application is launched the autostart file is automatically set to true,
and when it is dropped by the user it is set to false.
  - Added the daemon from gnome-settings-daemon, it keeps a copy of all
targets and replicates them to the clipboard before it is going empty.
  - Added groups into ClipmanActions identified by integers where -1
represents all the groups. This makes it possible to retrieve only a set
of actions. The Clipman settings dialog has a new checkbox to retrieve
actions only on manual copies (e.g. Ctrl+C).
  - Fixed a bug with KDE where the status icon is getting smaller and
