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.

Yeah, it is still a lot of clicks to add a launcher, but I think it's improved some since early betas. At least since pre-beta svn builds.

right click > add new item
double click launcher, it automatically opens a properties window and leaves the applet menu open for more additions
enter your properties, alt-c to accept and close

It's really not too bad for an advanced user, but it's the kind of thing that will confuse Windows converts.

You can and can't drag and drop icons. You can not drag files to the panel to create a launcher, and I wouldn't really see the point of that. /usr/bin would be hell to navigate in a file manager. You can't just click, drag, and drop a launcher within the panel, which is good since that leads to accidental movement of launchers in other panels out there. Instead you right click, choose move, drag, and drop. It's nearly as easy and less accident prone.
