I been working in xfce4timer-plugin.
I would suggest any improvements.
How can I do to send the code with these improvements?
In this list? Another channel?
I'm sorry, I'm new and did not how to do.

The improvements are:
1. Add "keep above" for Beep window

2. When paused show other timers.

3. Add icon for main properties window, to show on apps bar.

4. The secondary window (add/edit timers)  now is a dialog, when is open 
no new icon on apps bar.

5. Made a new icon for application (really this is not an improvement is 
a proposal), and added size 32.

I have made these changes and working on my PC.

Very thanks.
