> 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.
