Xfce "Today, after 1 year and 4 months of work, we are pleased to announce the release of the Xfce desktop 4.10, a new stable version that supersedes Xfce 4.8. In the 4.10 cycle we mainly focused on polishing the desktop and improving the user experience in various ways." A detailed overview of the changes compared to Xfce 4.8 and Xfce 4.10 preview releases can be found in the ChangeLogs. Xfce 4.10 will make its way to your distribution of choice, but of course, you can always download it and build it yourself.

I really like the possibility to use a vertical deskbar. The other improvements also are ok, but I mainly welcome the small changes like this one:

"Don't use deprecated g_format_size_for_display."

Code cleanup! Not only adding new features, but also keeping the code clean :-)

No need to point to a few "big" desktop environments who do not do this and add features no one wants...

I guess when I'm back to my Arch PC, the new packages will be a pacman away.
