Xfce The Xfce project finally finished the second release candidate for the upcoming Xfce Desktop Environment 4.2. This second release candidate is expected to be the last release candidate before the final release, which is planned to happen in about 2 or 3 weeks. This RC2 includes several bugfixes, esp. the window manager has seen quite a few important fixes, and it is the first release in the 4.2 branch that builds and runs on Solaris out of the box. As usual, prebuilt packages for several plattforms are already available (as a highlight: Debian/amd64 packages) and the graphical installers have been update to 4.2RC2. Please check the Xfce website for further details.

Phooey on installers...

Phooey on installers! I just downloaded the RPM's for fedora, opened a shell and typed 'rpm -Uvh *.rpm' in my xfce4.2 untarred directory. Installed in about 30 seconds. I love XFCE4.2 almost as much as my cat. This envionment is so much better than KDE or GNOME; it is so fast. I wish everyone could use this. I haven't booted in Windows mode in ages thanks to XFCE4.2. Rock on.
