Hi folks,
Here we go:
- Roadmap update, started to push commits to my GitHub fork.
- @Simon, Xfce needs UX improvements almost in every component, once the 
port is complete I'll get in touch.
- @Roland, thanks for your feedback, I've just updated the bug.
- @Francesco, check git.xfce.org and look for a plugin that you think 
it's useful and play with it, see if it still works (clone, 
./autogen.sh, make and run it) then you can start the porting process. 
Plugins are a bit tricky to put into the panel, I usually configure 
--prefix=/usr, install them and reload the panel, but maybe I'm too dumb 
and there is a better way. If you're confident enough, there are some 
apps pending, e.g. orage, xfburn, squeeze, but I think that porting an 
app is much more challenging.
