Hi there,

I'm not sure what is the right way to announce this.  Pointers are welcome.

I've created a new tool called "Fbdo", originally targeted at fluxbox, that
can also be useful to Xfce users.  I'm currently running mostly Xfce myself
and feel that it adds to the pleasure of using the environment.  It's a
first release.  I'm calling it alpha quality until more get to test it in
different environments.  The features it currently  adds are per-workspace
and randomized wallpaper, window tiling, window alignment to corners, center
and edges, smart application launching with limiting to one instance and
assigning to a workspace, and more.  It has automatic (command line) setup
specifically for Xfce.  It has a plugin Python framework for easy
expansion.  I'd love for people in the Xfce community to check it out and
particularly for developers to create new extensions.

Please let me know what you think (positive or negative).  If you find it
useful can someone suggest how to get it listed in Xfce-related download
sites?  I'm new to the Xfce world myself, having just started through
