- Rename xfce4rc to contents.xml. (Jasper)

by Francois, very pretty. (Jasper)

new panel on another screen. (Jasper)

(when not in use) and add newly installed ones. Based on idea of Scott
Barron. (Jasper)

- Reduce handle width to show only one line of dots. (Jasper)

item_dialog.c. to make it available for use in other dialogs (plugins).
The mailcheck plugin makes use of it and of course the launcher dialog.
