Xfce's "xfdesktop" desktop manager rolled out version 4.15 this week as the newest albeit unstable update.

Xfdesktop 4.15 principally brings a number of bug fixes including a memory leak, transparent background color issues, and other fixes and maintenance items. Xfdesktop 4.15 also has some icon changes, the minimum desktop icon size is now 16 pixels, support for Shift + Ctrl + N keybinding for the creation of new folders, support for type-ahead find for desktop icons, and other items and translation updates.

Downloads and more details on Xfce's Xfdesktop 4.15 release via xfce.org Git.

Xfce 4.16 is the next stable version of this desktop under development. They are aiming for a shorter development cycle with Xfce 4.16 and ideally should ship later this calendar year with all of the 4.15.x improvements throughout the different desktop components.
