    Release Notes: This release is the first to include manual pages for the binaries installed. An additional applet is available together with a helper binary, whose purpose is to host programs implementing the XEMBED protocol. Support for GTK+ 3.0, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X was also improved.

      Release Notes: This release includes a pkg-config definition file to ease the creation of additional applets. The API was slightly improved, and it ships with a tool to communicate with the Panel at run-time. More fixes made it into the release, notably for frequency monitoring of AMD CPUs (on NetBSD), better integration of the virtual keyboard, and positioning and desktop integration of the panels. The menu launchers display tooltips when available, and additional preferences are available too (focusing and window stacking order).

        Release Notes: This release further improves applet placement thanks to the addition of the "spacer" and "separator" applets. The preferences window was redesigned and now allows the complete layout to be defined there. The virtual keyboard plug-in was also improved in this regard. Finally, like the other DeforaOS desktop projects, the "panel-settings" utility was renamed to "panelctl" and will be extended in future releases.

          Release Notes: This version adds two new applets: one to print the title of the active application, and one to close it (for embedded mode). The left-most and right-most applet placements were removed from the API. The panels' position (top/bottom/both) is now determined by the configuration file only. The configuration interface was slightly improved as well. Finally, some run-time and compile-time issues were addressed, notably with the separate test application.

            Release Notes: This release brings fixes to the wpa_supplicant plug-in and separate test application.
