    New translations: Terje Uriansrud (nb_NO), Nuno Miguel (pt_PT), Tegegne Tefera (am), Manatsawin (th), RPrieditis (lv).
    Application extension library (libexo):
    
    Please see the Thunar website for a list of changes. 
    Window Manager (xfwm4):
    Be more relax with transients, allow transients to be sticky independently of their parent window (Bug #3296).
    Fix xfwm4 hanging with gtk+-2.11.x (Bug #3346).
    Plug a leak in mouse button grab when changing theme.
    Fix dialogs and modals without parents not being automatically centered like before (Bug #3278).
    Fix modifier mask not working with all keymaps (Bug #3194).
    Fix wrong count of key shortcuts causing switch to last workspace on modifier key press if no window is focused (Bug #3191).

    Fix strict bound checking causing wrong window to be focused in focus follow mouse (Bug #2781).
    Transients for group shouldn't apply to other transients, or it breaks stacking for some apps, noticeably mozilla "save as" dialog...

    Desktop Manager (xfdesktop):
    Fixed the Italian xfdesktop menu causing a crash.
    Fix missing xfce_rc_close() causing memleak and too many open file descriptors (Bug #3065).
    Always use button 0 in gtk_menu_popup() as GTK+ 2.11+ expects the same button to be pressed or it doesn't activate the entry (Bug #3359).
    Fix menu sometimes not popping up when using the keyboard shortcut, again. Timeout waiting for grab is now 0.25s (Bug #441).

    Fix loading internal plugins if a similar file exists in the start directory (Bug #3279).
    Only update the clock once a minute when seconds are disabled. The digital clock is also set in the default layout to minimize the amount of screen updates.
    Fix possible buffer overflow in launcher tooltips (Bug #3324).
    Use exo-open --launch TerminalEmulator in the default configuration (Bug #3384).
    Fix crash when removing a panel in Gtk+ 2.11.x (Bug #3496).

    Using it on Archlinux, and it's so fast. I turned off Compiz Fusion, and turned on xfwm4 composting, and everything is running so smooth and fast.

    Debian has this in their unstable section but I don't find any downloadable DEBs.

    Will this appear in Gutsy backports, by any chance?

    Did that to me, especially when dragging windows with transparency. So I turned it off and went to good ol' Compiz Fusion, which has caused no troubles.

    Partitioning: 10 GB Debian Testing partition, 10 GB Ubuntu 8.10, 1.2 GB Swap partition,and then 55 GB for "/media/Documents"

    No problems for me, xfwm4 works fine... much faster than Compiz Fusion and less resources. Maybe it's something with the Ubuntu version?

    Re: Xfce 4.4.2 Out

    I'm currently using Xubuntu feisty. Could I upgrade/update the Xfce environment to 4.4.2 or is that impossible without upgrading my entire ubuntu distro?

    Here is a pretty official link that gives you the instructions.

    http://j1m.net/2008/01/07/get-xfce-4...feisty-fawn-2/

    But since I did the update, I cannot mount my NTFS Windows partitions. I cannot blame the update for sure, but it certainly looks like a likely suspect. Have 2 help requests in (Xubuntu and XFCE) and been working on this all day- nothing yet.
