What is xfce4-volumed?

This daemon is responsible of making the volume up/down and mute keys of
the keyboard work automatically, and uses the XFCE 4 mixer's card
setting for chosing which card to act on. It also provides volume change
/ mute toggle notifications if the notification server used supports
x-canonical-icon-only and x-canonical-synchronous notifications.


Release notes for 0.1.4

* Volume initialisation now includes mute check
 * Fixed a bug in volume calculation due to float truncating
 * Replaced g_utf8_collate by g_strcmp0. Less accurate but at least
doesn't corrupt strings
 * Removed obsolete code
 * Fixed an error preventing from building without libnotify
 * Code refactoring (xvd_mixer and xvd_xfconf)
 * Making sure that nothing wrong is done if the card exists but is
