What is xfdesktop?

Xfce's desktop manager.


Release notes for 4.7.4

* Add checks for an API change in libnotify 0.7.0 (bug #6915).
* Avoid GTK+ 2.18 and GIO 2.20 function calls (or at least guard them
  so that xfdesktop still builds with older versions).
* Let garcon choose the default applications menu file using
  XDG_MENU_PREFIX. Drop the UserMenu kiosk option as the panel
  sort of allows to bypass it anyway.
