I thought it might be good to get an idea about the status of the
release, so I'll try and list the things that still need to be done for
* Fix major bugs
First of all, since other people are posting bug lists as well, the list
of all the bugs assigned to me is here:
There are a couple of crashes there that need to be fixed, but many
reports are enhancement requests or only apply to 4.2.x.
For anyone who is looking for a way to help, looking at these reports,
trying to reproduce the problem or asking for more information from the
reporter if necessary can make it much easier to resolve the issues.
* Default configuration
Almost ready, but it needs a final list of launchers on the bottom panel
and, it needs to be made translatable.
Everyone has their own opinion about the default launchers, so I don't
think it will work to ask for input. We, the core devs, need to pick a
few and stick with that. So if any of you feel you belong to that group
;-) and have (strong) opinions about this, please go ahead and make the
changes you prefer. I would like to use exo-open for this, to have most
flexibility, but this would mean that effectively the panel depends on
libexo. I personally don't think that is a problem, since IMO libexo
should be considered part of the Xfce platform.
This should be decided soon, to give the translators enough time.
I think the installation of the docs has already been temporarily
disabled, because they are for 4.2 and are no longer valid for 4.4. This
is a fairly large task and if anyone would like to give it a try that
would be awesome.
Again, people may want to translate them, so the sooner we have updated
docs the better.
Of course, I will work on all of these issues, but I can certainly use a
