Release notes for 0.4.0
This new release drops libxfcegui4 usage for libxfce4ui, and improves
greatly the icon sizing/naming.

Now the icons names are taken from the icon-naming-spec (it should
better take icons from compliant themes), and the buttons are properly
displayed/resized when the panel is resized or switched to vertical, or
the frame is toggled on/off.

The background is now 'transparent', ie shows panel color or background
if the panel is transparent too.
