Re: Developing and Testing panel applets

Thanks, but that rises another question.

It seems that now I can code applets as
shlibs. I didn't know that.

What are the implementation differences?

The problem is that I am trying to learn
about the new panel API so that I can
bring panelmm (C++ binding) up to date.

Unfortunately I can only learn about it
by reading applet code for the new API
and that doesn't help much about what changed.
