Re: 2.3 Proposed Features

Hey Jeff,
	Here's a list of some of the things I expect to get done in the panel
for 2.4:

	* New toplevel panel widget:
	    + No more panel types, just a single panel which you can
	      configure to the same effect as the old panel types.
	    + Resize the panel to any width by dragging on the edge.
	    + Groovy autohide into the corner for edge panels.
	    + Move, resize, hide the panel using the keyboard.
	    + No shadow at the screen edge to help Fitt's Law
	    + Descriptive panel titles/names to aid navigation between

	* Cleanup of the panel's gconf mess. Easier to change the
	  default panel setup, sensible panel/applet ids, descriptions
	  for all keys etc.
	* The panel will respond to gconf notifications.

	* Will either expose the idea of panel "profiles" in the UI
	  or possibly dump it altogether.

	* Applications/Actions menu bar and window menu from the old
	  menu panel will be standalone applets.
	* Calendar on the clock applet.

	There's probably other stuff, but these are the things I'm looking at
getting done in fairly short order, depending on whether I have the time
or not of course :-)

Good Luck,
