I just compiled the new Xfce 4.4 beta on Debian. This is easily going to be the best Xfce release so far. Xfce looks just as good as Gnome (no, actually Xfce looks even better ;) and it's more configurable than Gnome. New themes look great.

But what happened to the panel drawers that Xfce used to have? I'd like to add a panel drawer that pops up a list of my favourite games but this doesn't seem to be possible anymore. Also, I'd like the Xfce calendar to pop up when I click the panel clock. Is it possible to configure the panel clock to do this?

I installed Xubuntu (Ubuntu + XFCE) last week. The calendar plugin comes pre-installed and its icon shows up on the Panel by default. A single click on it brings it up and a second click (on the icon) brings it down.
