Release Notes: This release properly fixes the panel border by using low-level drawing functions. New applets include Timer, Trash, and Volume. A number of other applets have been cleaned up. You can drag launchers from the GNOME Menu (although not yet onto the panel). The .desktop file library has been split into a separate package called X11::FreeDesktop::DesktopEntry, which is available from CPAN, and the .desktop editor program has been overhauled to use it. The BatteryMonitor applet does ACPI/APM detection. You can now upload your SSH key to remote hosts with the ShellManager applet.
Release Notes: This release adds proper calendaring functions to the Clock applet. A new DriveManager applet makes it easy to mount, unmount, and eject removable media devices. You now can specify the panel size in pixels instead of named sizes, and the panel can be set not to "expand", and instead will be centered on the window edge. Unicode support has been improved for .desktop files, and translated strings are used in the GNOME menu when available. You can drag and drop launcher icons to and from the panel. A large number of bugfixes and optimizations have been made.
Release Notes: This release introduces some massive changes to PerlPanel. The eagerly-awaited Notification Area applet is now available. Users can download third-party applets as tar files and install them in a few clicks. All applets which use .desktop files (GnomeMenu, IconBar, and Launcher) now support launch feedback, and you can activate launch feedback on the Launcher and IconBar applets through the .desktop editor. A lot of work has been done to improve responsiveness and startup time.
Release Notes: This release includes two new icon themes: Bluecurve and crystalsvg. The main development work has focused on implementing support for applets with multiple instances. Each applet can have its own preferences and settings. There's a new "Launcher" applet which uses this feature.
Release Notes: PerlPanel now supports icon themes. Auto-completion has been added to the Commander and RunMe applets. A new wireless signal strength applet has been added. The panel itself now has a border that takes advantage of Fitt's Law. The "Add To Applet" submenu has been broken down into categories to make it easier to use. The "Lock Screen" applet and action item will be greyed out if xscreensaver isn't running. When an applet fails to load, the error message will be more informative. A large number of bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a large number of bugs, and introduces changes that simplify the interface. Several new applets have been introduced: a "Recent Files" applet, a CPU temperature applet that requires the mbmon program, and a very experimental applet that displays your OpenBox menu. The IconBar applet takes better advantage of Fitt's Law, and the "run program" history is now shared between the Commander and RunMe applets. Right-clicking on a spacer now brings up an action menu.
Release Notes: This release introduces a handful of new applets: A GNOME menu, an SSH shell manager, a SETI@Home monitor, and a "mini-commander". This release requires GTK+ 2.4.0.
Release Notes: This release focuses on the implementation of support for GNU gettext. To comply with Fitt's Law, the shadow border around the panel has been removed, but can be reinstated with a hidden preference. "Power Off" and "Reboot" options have been added to the default actions. A "Screenshot" applet, with a corresponding action menu item, has been added.
Release Notes: The Configuration applet has been rewritten using Glade for improved maintainability. The applet API has been substantially cleaned, and new functionality has been added. The documentation has been expanded to include manual pages for PerlPanel's supporting programs. The build system has been overhauled to comply with Debian's packaging policies. You can now change the geometry of the Pager applet.
Release Notes: This release includes a new "action menu" applet, for which a base menu class has been implemented. The Commander dialog has been improved, and can now be called from an external program. The handling of icons has been made more consistent to make it easier to implement icon themes in the future. A load of bugs have been fixed.
