I think: fine. How does that work? Anyway, I have tried to fix some of  
the issues with the first release. Hope this version is more stable and  

Download: http://www.lysator.liu.se/~b0kaj/xfce4-notes-0.9.5.tar.gz  
(for now at least)

Or go to site: http://www.lysator.liu.se/~b0kaj/programming/notes/

What's changed?
	- Editable titlebar (double-click)
	- Option to make notes sticky,
	- Customizable applet icon,
	- Better option menu with separate color selection dialog
	- Fixed bad code crashing the app (doubleclick on titlebar)
	- Better tooltips..
	- other minor things...

One remaining issue is how to show/hide notes and how to create a new  
note. Ideally perhaps would be to show/hide notes with single click and  
create a new note with double click but I don't really know how to do  
that in a nice way. The reason? There is a problem catching  
GDK_2BUTTON_PRESS on "button-press-event" signal for creating new note  
without catching GDK_BUTTON_PRESS for show/hide notes. It works but  
it's not nice to see all notes flicker before a new note is created.  
Any ideas on this? Anyway, for now I added some more informative  
tooltips on panel applet icon per someones suggestion on this list.

Ok, don't have a cow,
