Splendid, thank you Dennis! This is one of the key components of my
desktop RISC OS fetish, as it makes the panel very close in functionality
to RISC OS's original Icon Bar.
I have a couple of rather banal, pedantic suggestions for you, if you can
stomach the thought of such things: I quite like the framed surround in
0.3.7 - better than the separator in 0.3.6 - but would it be possible to
have it optional? As I say, I am thinking of RISC OS here, and it would be
nice to give the illusion that the TaskTray applet is a seamless part of
Also, the icons in the tray seem to push right up against the right-hand
edge. Could the spacing on the right and left hand sides be made more
even? I get the impression the tray is meant to sit in the left-hand part
of the panel, but I personally have it on the right, with icons either
side, and the spacing looks just ever-so-slightly skewy.
A more substantial proposal which may not lie within the bounds of simple
possibility is this: running apps may have been executed from AppDirs.
Would there be any way of getting menu options for such applications from
AppInfo.xml, and displaying them at the top of the existing menu? That
would be rather lovely, I think.
All the best,
