Xfce 4.6 BETA-1 ('Fuzzy') released

Filed under
Software

We are one month since the release of Xfce 4.6 ALPHA. And now it's time to release the first BETA, codename 'Fuzzy'.

A lot of bugs have been fixed in this release, a few highlights:

- Xfwm4 can now detect if a program is unresponsive. It will show a dialog to let the user kill it.
- Xfce4-session will start up significantly faster by using parallel startup.
- It is possible to configure the keyboard-layout.
- Toggling event-sounds with libcanberra + gtk 2.14 is now possible (meaning: you can turn them off).
