081107 xfce4 4.6 beta [VL 6.0]
« on: November 07, 2008, 01:50:13 pm »

Vector has packaged the latest beta release of Xfce4 4.6.  Some warnings before you install this:

  • Configuration files are not compatible with Xfce4 4.4.x.  Expect to lose and customization and configuration you have done in previous Xfce versions.
  • To have a complete set of icons you will also need to install gnome-icon-theme.  Last I checked this wasn't being automatically picked up as a dependency.
  • There have been reports of intermittent panel crashes by some early testers.  I have been testing this version and I have not experience the problem yet.

Please also note that this package is mislabled as XFce4-4.4.6b.  I suspect this was done deliberately to insure that an upgrade to 4.6 final works automatically.

Package:  xfce4-4.4.6b-i586-4vl6.tlz
MD5: f2b3e3f734c0537bc692fbebf68d4ae5
Package Size:  11.99 MB
Installed Size:  52.23 MB

Sources:  Will be posted shortly.

Description file:  Will be added shortly.

After testing this package, please take a moment and come back to this thread to let us know how it works for you.
