    I'm on an AMD FX 8350, but I'm not using XFCE because of that either. The latest KDE runs perfect on my system as well, but XFCE is simply more to my liking. XFCE will of course also run on my old 2012 Acer netbook with a dual core AMD C-60 with a whopping 800Mhz clock speed, so it does allow me to keep the same flexible environment for my workflows, and THAT is a huge plus.

        Agree. I use xfce on all my machines (at least the ones with a DE), from my ryzen 7 1700 system to my many atom-based old netbooks, and all of them work just great, no lag or anything. The new thunar already arrived a few days ago at the Arch [extra] repository, and it's looking great.
        BTW, I'd like to know if any Arch user can tell me how to update to the git version of xfce using the AUR, I could always update each individual component to their '-git' version, but is there a 'bundle' PKGBUILD out there? Any way, nice release, let's hope they get to 4.14 soon.

          I've always wondered why wmctrl is not a part of the XFCE build. Hiding the struts does not work without it. wmctrl is often talked about: https://forum.xfce.org/viewtopic.php?id=12202

            Yeah, 'cause the addition of GSK isn't anything major... [/sarcasm]

            I agree that the differences b/w 3 and 4 are much less than b/w 2 and 3/4, but still, GSK is a major addition and there are lots of new widgets to choose from as well (which might be worth looking into when porting as there might be new widgets that are more suited for your app(s) than the old ones).

              I wonder if we'll ever see 4.14 fully released...

              For me the big thing is xfwm 4.14, which adds support for tear-free compositing via opengl or xpresent. I'm not terribly interested in using any desktop that doesn't have tear free out of the box, and I don't want to have to install xfwm from git

                But when are they planning to merge xfdesktop into thunar?
