Hi All
I just released fbpanel 4.9. It is mostly bug-fixes release
Changelog is
* new menu placement to not cover panel; used in menu and taskbar
* taskbar: icons were added to task's menu (raise, iconify, close)
* access to WM_HINTS is done via XGetWMHints only and not via get_xa_property;
  in taskbar it fixes failure to see existing icon pixmap
* 1704709: config checks for installed devel packages

Enjoy !!

Regards, Anatoly
