Re: 2.3 Proposed Features

Actually this touches a bit on a old gripe i had with the panel (which was filed in

We fixed the panel & applets so it picks up the background color of it, however 'transparency' is something that is something they do not adjust to (window list, clock and sound mixer come to mind as obvious examples).. Thats a shame since 'miss-behaving' applets like that spoil the posibility to do nice graphical looks like in that longhorn screenshot..

(i presume it is already fully posible to set a text color per-panel thru a theme's rc file? imagine you have a transparent panel on a dark background color (like longhorn dark blue), you would need to set the text color of that one panel to white.. If not, that will be the next chalange ;-)

I hate the fact that applets are so straightforward to write - the world

them work well on really small panels or vertical panels. Each

Or on transparant panels...

individual applet needs to be designed to handle these scenarios well -
and that's not an easy task for most applets.

Good Luck,
