Xfce 4.16 Desktop Environment Enters Development with Dark Panel, GTK3 Support

Xfce 4.16 won’t be as big as Xfce 4.14, but it will bring some interesting and exciting changes, such as the move to a newer and modern GTK release, GTK3, as developer Simon Steinbei?? recently announced that the optional GTK2 dependency is being dropped from Xfce 4.16. Among other changes, the Xfce 4.16 desktop environment will also introduce a new dependency on libgtop to display information about the system in the “About” dialog, a dark panel, initial support for client-side decorations, as well as some smaller improvements and goodies for the Thunar file manager.
