Thanks for the suggestions, I got -current up and running and will try xfce4.8pre1 later. BTW, netselect is a utility I've found to help select the fastest mirror relative to my location, which helped me solve my isp rsync woes. (each time i cancel a rsync session, i have to reset my wireless router and get a new wan ip before I can rsync again.)

Hi to all, XFCE 4.8pre3 is here.
Probably Robby is already working in the new packages.

Just a question, XFCE 4.8 will use HAL?

From dev team
Quote:
Perhaps the most important achievement we will accomplish with Xfce 4.8 is that, despite suffering from the small size of the development team from time to time, the core of the desktop environment has been aligned with today’s desktop technologies such as GIO, ConsoleKit, PolicyKit, udev and many more. A lot of old cruft like has been stripped from the core as well, as has happened with HAL and ThunarVFS (which is still around for compatibility reasons).

I haven't had time to play with the updated packages yet, but is the panel more stable with this release?

Now it's possible to use Thunar to access Samba and Network directories?
And the notify deamon still overlap the notifications?

Thunar was one of the application with big changes.
But in the git repository of XFCE you can see that plugin have suffer some changes, so in the final release maybe it will work.

I'm not holding my breath on this one since most of the commits look like translations and not actual code.

I'm still having problems with thunar taking forever to start. Running it from a command line doesn't produce any messages, so I'm not sure what the delay (~5 to ~10 seconds) is.

[edit]
Looks like I'm a victim of this bug.
http://bugzilla.xfce.org/show_bug.cgi?id=4568

Moving my .gtk-bookmarks to .gtk-bookmarks.bak fixed the issue, but now I'm without my filesystem bookmarks.

Yes you are right, but let's have some hope...

I guess I spoke too soon about solving my thunar problem. I'm back to the same issue, even without the .gtk-bookmarks file.
