I saw the change log in the home page here are the changes:
Changes between rc4 and 4.0 final

* system tray fix
* better support for non-EMWH compliant programs
* Old 32 item limit for the panel removed

I want it just for the System tray fix

Well, I've upgraded it, went as smoothly as possible, I've used the RPMs. I don't see any changes, at least not now, but it's always a good thing to update for bugfixes.

A tiny question... Is there a script which can import your RedHat menus from Gnome to XFCE?

Cool

zroth, From the xfce mailing list the creator says:

Code:
Several bugs were fixed since RC4, not counting small
enhancements, so it's definitely worth upgrading to
the final.

Cheers,
Olivier.
Panzerfrost, I don't know of a script for that, but check out the xfce mailing list archive. Many people have been using Menumaker to create the gnome and kde menus. I haven't tried it but it may do what you are looking for.

Well, to add my thoughts to this thread, I have been using XFce for almost 3 years now. I have yet to find anything that is anywhere close. Simply put, it ROCKS!!

thanks Phil...I don't what iwas thinking. First thing I did was upgrade when I got home. It is running great....

My one lesson learned:

Copy menu.xml somewhere prior to upgrade if you had previously customized your right click menu.

XFCE is the best desktop/WM I have seen to date. It's configurability can easily be overlooked...

This is the first I've heard of Xfce. I took a look at their web page and it looks neat. If nothing else I want their icons. Their icons are smooth

do you mean the main menu, etc?

I often use the one menu in gnome that is located: main menu=> system settings => network. Which is launced with the command: redhat-config-network...I just made a panel launcher for it. Find the menu programs you use often and thenfind out how they are launched and make your own menus

I was looking at screen shots for Xfce and didn't notice any app to change workspaces or desktops. How do you change from 1 desktop to another?
Thanks

there's a graphical pager to switch between workplaces, just like in KDE and Gnome. you can also middle-click to choose the exact app on any desktop.

Thanks

After reading through this thread I thought I'd give it a try this weekend. I use on average 2-3 workspaces and the capability to switch between them is important to me. I currently use KDE but like to try different things.

Yeah, I know that method, thing is I'm pretty much a newbie and could use a lot of entries from the menu. I guess I'll just take an hour one day to copy it all, if anyone's interested I might at well post it here.

The nice thing about the desktop manager is there is a always a few ways.

aside from the afore mentioned, you can:

use the middle mouse w/ wheel to cycle through them.
or
CTRL+ALT + HOME/END will take your prev/next
