adds a number of improvements [4] including a redesigned configuration
manager and power management integration.

XFCE maintainer Kevin Fenzi and our very own Adam Williamson are looking
for your input to help craft test cases [5] and ensure a smooth
transition to the latest upstream release.  Come share your findings
this Thursday, March 19 in #fedora-qa.
