Development Release: Xfce Settings 4.13.1

The second release of the GTK+ 3 powered Xfce Settings is now ready for testing (and possibly general use).  Check it out!

What’s New?

This release now requires xfconf 4.13+.

New Features

  • Appearance Settings: New configuration option for default monospace font
  • Display Settings: Improved support for embedded DisplayPort connectors

Bug Fixes

  • Display Settings: Fixed drawing of displays, was hit and miss before, now its guaranteed
  • Display Settings: Fixed drag-n-drop functionality, the grab area occupied the space below the drawn displays
  • Display Settings (Minimal): The mini dialog now runs as a single instance, which should help with some display drivers (Xfce #11169)
  • Fixed linking to dbus-glib with xfconf 4.13+ (Xfce #13633)

Deprecations

  • Resolved gtk_menu_popup and gdk_error_trap_pop deprecations
  • Ignoring GdkScreen and GdkCairo deprecations for now. Xfce shares this code with GNOME and Mate, and they have not found a resolution yet.

Code Quality

  • Several indentation fixes
  • Dropped duplicate drawing code, elimination another deprecation in the process

    1. The GTK+ 3 port is primarily a 1:1 feature port which should be nearly invisible to the user. I’m not sure what the plans are for bumping the major version number, but it would likely be with or after adding support for Wayland way into the future.

    1. Unfortunately, this is not yet supported in GTK. It’s also unclear whether this will be supported in the future either, as recent development suggests that advanced scaling will be moving from the toolkit and to the compositor.
