Relaunch

I finally decided to redo my website, and ditch WordPress in favor of a static site generator (I decided to use Jekyll). I also took the opportunity to simplify the design.

There's a bit more to do, and likely some broken links here and there (not to mention some broken WP-to-markdown conversion), but it's time I finally got this done.

In theory, I'll start blogging again as well, but... we'll see.

Xfce – Xfwm4 zoom mode in 4.12

Xfce is my main desktop environment since more than 6 years, and I really like it. I try to make some patch from time to time, and if you search a project to contribute, it’s here ;-)

The core team is really small (2 or 3 people), so development evolves rather slowly, and the 4.12 will be released when it is ready.

One of the latest feature is the implementation of a compositor zoom, like the compiz ezoom plugin, from an external developper ( see this thread).

Here a little video with latest git version ( from http://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfwm4/ ). You just need to press ALT and scroll up/down to zoom in/out.

(yeah, it’s an excuse to test the html5 <video> balise with ogv file ;)).

I will try to make some blog posts about new features in xfce world for the upcoming 4.12 (in 2014 I hope!), stay tuned !
