Release notes for 0.7.0
[Please note that this is a development release.]

This is a development release for xfce4-xkb-plugin; it requires
xfce4-settings 4.11 or later.

    * New version 0.7.0 - to be used with xfce4-settings 4.11 or later;
      do *not* use this version with XFCE 4.8 or 4.10, it won't work!
    * This is a fairly major rework - keyboard layouts are now
      through xfce4-keyboard-settings and managed by xfsettingsd;
      xkb-plugin only manages per window/application layout prefs
      and just acts as a layout indicator otherwise
    * Many crashes/leaks fixed
    * More descriptive layout/variant names in tooltips/popup menus
    * xfce 4.10 panel compatibility
    * Text labels are scaled to the size of text area
    * Kazakh flag added
    * Panel 4.10 compatibility
    * Layout configs should no longer be lost (this is really handled
      by the code moved to xfce4-settings though)
    * XKB settings not managed by XFCE should no longer be overwritten
      (again, this is really handled by xfce4-settings now)
    * New dependency on garcon (used to launch xfce4-keyboard-settings)
