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.

I use Rox too as I don't like xffm.

The Gentoo tree isn't slow picking it up, it just masks the packages as they are beta. You install with portage you just by adding the relevent lines to your /etc/portage/package.unmask and /etc/portage/package.keywords files, it isn't difficult, but is a bit of a pain.
