As always it's also time to say goodbye to some older unmaintained or deprecated projects. (Luckily our projects only go to the attic aka the archive on git.xfce.org when they die.) With a salty teardrop of sadness we bid farewell to:

... thunar-actions-plugin, ...
I hope this does not mean, that Thunar Custom Actions are gone? :scared: :frown:
Also, looks like, Thunar didn't get 'two panel view', the only thing I'm missing in Thunar :sad:

So ... new XFCE ... I am new here and wondering how will the new XFCE version be available on MX?
Will it just show up on the software update list when you run 'check for updates'?
No clue. :)

It'll appear in the Test Repos first, then work it's way to the regular repos.

It'll come with mx19 based on Debian Buster, which is being worked on as we speak.

As Jerry said, compatibility with mx18 (Stretch) is still being checked on.

The dropped plugin is this a decade-idle plugin which looked like this (screenshot)

The user custom actions plugin (aka plugin-uca) is intact
