Xfce The Xfce development team is pleased to announce that the first release candiate of Xfce 4.4 is now available for download. A lot of bugs were fixed during the last two months and several new features were added. For example the brand new Xarchiver 0.4.0 is included, trash support was added to Thunar and xfdesktop, and the overall memory usage was reduced. See the ChangeLog for a complete list.

A very good window manager/Desktop

I really like the way in which Xfce has been progressing. It is both lightweight as well as have most of the features found in its heavy weight counterparts Gnome and Kde.

I have been using this window manager for quite some time now. Some things which the xfce team could improve on are:

* The position of the windows of applications should be made persistent across reboots. (As of Xfce4.0 - the one which I use - it is not).

* Care should be taken to maintain the lightweightedness of the window manager even while including more features - an obvious factor to switch from gnome and kde.
