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.

Great for me

I'm running XFCE4.2RC2 on Ubuntu warty. My specs are quite poor (Fujitsu Lifebook, P2 333, 96mb, 4gb, NeoMagic graphics) but it runs a LOT faster than Gnome ever did on this laptop. I used the os-cillation installers and enabled the compiler optimisations. This is an excellent desktop!
