I am a XFCE lover and I've seen the release notes on Maty's blog and I really surprised whith it.
Cassandra XFCE was very stable, I hope that this version works better than it.

I'll be waiting the final release. Grat work!

Adeus!

Any progress on this edition? Maybe another Dev could help merlwiz out so we can get it here before Ubuntu gets Hardy out?

I am really looking forward to this release.
It will be the first choice for some of the less powerful computers in the house.

Keep up the good work!

...after a couple of days of heavy usage I'm wondering how much better it can be?!
I'm leaning heavily towards making it my MAIN distribution for ALL the 'puters in the house!
Really good work!

I'm a Debian user (using it since version 2.0) and have tried a lot of different linux distros. But after trying Linux Mint (XFCE edition because I can't stand Gnome and KDE) I can truthfully say, I'm not looking back. My disto of choice, it works much better than *buntu, shares its huge sw repositories and... it's beautiful :)

Keep up the good work!

:lol: I got to tell y'all. I was using XFCE Cassandra on my oldest PC not realizing that the 4.0 beta was up for grabs.
So I downloaded it and burned it and am now installing it. The funny thing about it is this. Daryna XFCE 4.0 runs faster from the CD than Cassandra does off the hard drive. This gives me hope that the new XFCE will run as quickly on my old PC as the KDE 4.0 Full release does on my newest box( Which truthfully is going on 4 or 5 years old but is still comparable to some of the better stuff you buy new today.

Your team has pulled off another winner with XFCE 4.0. Keep it up. :D 8)

Sorry for the delays, but a lot of things aren't going well. :?
I also think my hard drive with XFCE Daryna installed is going bad. :(
I just bought a new hard drive(500GB 7200 RPM 16MB) and once it arrives I will be rearranging everything. 8)
I was running out of space.

Here are some updates for Daryna XFCE. :D

Just a thought...
Is there any other menu in XFCE then the ordinary one_
I have a soft spot for those wide, easy to navigate ones, like mintMenu and Tasty Menu, so is there one?
...or is it possible to use the mintMenu, via the Gnome panel, but rather without?! :?
