 There is no set schedule, but there are goals the developers try to meet. That said, the creation of deadlines does not lend itself well to those working without compensation. So the overall goal is to release a new version as certain goals are reached. Unfortunately,​ that does not allow the advanced statement of any release schedule. Please check back often to read any news releases about the product. There is no set schedule, but there are goals the developers try to meet.

 +=== Is it possible to change the icon used by the icon box or task bar for a given application?​ ===
 +It's not possible. This setting has to be managed by the application itself.
 +----
 +=== I've installed a plug-in for the panel, but the indicators don't use different colors. What can I do? ===
 +First, try another Gtk theme, since some themes override the color. If it doesn'​t solve the problem, you probably have an old ~/​.gtkrc-2.0 : remove it and try again. ​
 +----
 +=== How do I set the panel layer in Xfce 4.2 and 4.4? ===
 +In order to improve focus management this option was removed.
 +----
 +=== Is there a world clock applet? ===
 +You need to add the Orage Clock to the panel. Then you can middle-click the clock to open the "​Global Time" window, to which you can add any number of clocks.

 Read ''/​usr/​share/​doc/​nvidia-glx/​README.txt.gz''​ (and search for "​RenderAccel"​ and "​AllowGLXWithComposite"​) to see if they are recommended at all for your system. At least for recent NVidia GLX drivers, "​AllowGLXWithComposite"​ "​true"​ is only for X servers older than X11R6.9.0, and "​RenderAccel"​ "​true"​ is the default setting, and therefore not required.
