Xfce When we reported on the release of Xfce 4.8, we ignored a statement inside the release announcement about the lack of new features coming to the BSD world. The statement was a bit disconnected from the rest of the press release, but Xfce developer Jannis Pohlmann has published a blog post giving a few more details about the issue.

FreeBSD has ConsoleKit and PolicyKit

I am not really sure why Xfce 4.8 needs ConsoleKit and PolicyKit, but those are available on FreeBSD at least:
http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/consolekit/
http://www.freshports.org/sysutils/policykit/

Oh, and FWIW, I am a happy user of Xfce on FreeBSD since the Xfce 3.x days, currently using Xfce version 4.6.2. I haven't missed Thunar-volman at all.
