LXPanel 0.9.1 released.

Just two days passed after release 0.9.0, and next release… Just because it cannot be fully built on non-Linux due to very small but regrettable mistake in the volume plugin code, and also newly introduced flicker with some window managers, since these two problems are important enough, it was decided to release 0.9.1 so soon.

LXPanel 0.9.0 released.

Since last spring, when release 0.8.2 happened, one of key components of LXDE, the panel, was undergone heavy improvements and bugs fixing. So now we are proud to present you new nice version of LXPanel – 0.9.0. Not final release 1.0 still as not all good things implemented yet, but some new ones are there now. The most noticeable improvements are about launchtaskbar plugin and volume plugin. Look below for more details.
