Xfce The Xfce development team is pleased to announce that the first release candiate of Xfce 4.4 is now available for download.

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.

Can't agree with you on that. I think it's quite nice, being so simple but yet very smart and creativly made. Kinda like something between BeOS, Gnome and Amiga, not too many features but you get things done. Fewer features and layers also means less bugs and more efficient code. On the various systems I've tried XFCE has run faster than Fluxbox, and looked quite a lot better with the default themes. Am using it now on my laptop with XGL and Compiz, and both me and many other people think it's esthetic, clean and easy to use.
