xfce 4.16 is expected to be released by the end of the year. I am
planning to submit Xfce 4.16 as a self contained change for Fedora 34.
Before I do that, I would like people to test 4.16 packages on rawhide.
If you can, please test the 4.16 packages in the COPR below and provide
feedback. Of course, these are not *official* packages. Please respond
here on the mailing list or to me directly.
COPR for Xfce 4.16 -
In my tests, I have been able to upgrade from F33 xfce 4.14 packages
with very few problems (e.g. orage needs to be removed). It will help me
for folks to test and let me know if there are problems.
I've recently upgraded to Xfce 4.16. There is new icons set (visible i.e. in the
apps menu as Email client or Web browser). Is there a way to use the icons from
the selected icon set instead? It seem that whatever icon set I choose in the
Appearance settings, the new icons still act as override for them.
in the Xfce 4.16 upgrade process I noticed some of the panel plugins I maintain, do have some issues. Both of these plugins didn't see any upstream development in the last 5 years.
I don't know if the xfce4-embed-plugin  and the xfce4-kbdleds-plugin are still actively maintained by the Xfce community, but I only could find an upstream website for the embed plugin.
I would like to either orphan the plugins for someone else or directly retire them, since that seems to be a bit more appropriate.
