Xfce 4.14 Desktop Environment Arrives After More Than 4 Years, Here’s What’s New

Xfce 4.14 comes 4 years and 5 months after Xfce 4.12, a release that it is probably included in the software repositories of almost all Linux-based operating systems. The goal for Xfce 4.14, as the developers explain, was to port all of the core components to the latest GTK3 and GDBus open-source technologies, instead of the old GTK2 and D-Bus GLib. Highlights of the Xfce 4.14 release includes VSync (reduces display flickering), HiDPI, and XInput2 support for the window manager, along with improved GLX support for better compatibility with Nvidia proprietary graphics drivers, as well as several improvements to the compositor.
