"3 months after its latest release (2.2), GLX-Dock's next stage is ready for testing.

"What's new?

"This version was the occasion to refactor a fair amount of the core.

"GLX-Dock is now built on top of libgldi (for GL Desktop Interface), which will also be used for another project: GLX-Desklet. Having a minimalistic core ensure better stability and performances, and less bugs.

"New features

"Of course a lot of new features come along with this new version:

- The System-Monitor applet can now monitor CPU's temperature and fans speed.
- The Logout applet now warns you when the computer needs to be restarted.
- The menus have a better layout and if you lock the dock, most of entries are hidden.
- The Slider is much faster to load a huge number of images.
- A unified icon settings window helps configuring all the launchers/applets/docks/desklets in a short time."
