+20040924:
+---------
+
+ * Version 4.1.16
+ * Don't grab the display on logout, as it doesn't work well with
+ compositors.
+
+20040203:
+---------
+
+ * Version 4.1.2
+ * Icon changes in the tray icon menu (the session control icon)
+ * Added about dialog now that XfceAboutDialog is in libxfcegui4.
+
+20040129:
+---------
+
+ * Version 4.1.1 (big jump indeed, but need to catch up with the rest
+ of the desktop :-))
+ * Finally moved xfce_setenv()/xfce_putenv() to libxfce4util and
+ we are now secured from stupid native implementations of both
+ functions.
+ * Some autotools and copyright updates.
+
+20040125:
+---------
+ * Version 0.2.1
+ * Updated the xfce4-session manual page to reflect the latest
+ changes.
+
+20040113:
+---------
+ * Added --disable-tcp option to disable binding to TCP ports. This
+ is no new configure option, but a runtime option, that is, it can
+ be supplied to xfce4-session at startup.
+
+20040110:
+---------
+ * Version 0.2.0
+ * Added support for user defined poweroff/halt/reboot commands,
+ and some cleanups, thanks to Brian Tarricone.
+ * Various fixes in the meantime, too bad I have no spare time for
+ xfce :-(
+
+20030721:
+---------
+ * Fix problem with Xrandr MCS plugin and splash screen not using
+ the new screen height/width.
+
+20030716:
+---------
+ * XfceTrayIcon now both provides "clicked" (a single left button
+ click) and "double_clicked" (double left button click) signals
+ * XfceTrayIcon no longer autoconnects, you'll need to call
+ xfce_tray_icon_connect() explicitly
+
+20030715:
+---------
+ * Version 0.1.1
+ * Make "session control" sticky again, since the xfwm4 problem with
+ sticky windows seems to be fixed
+ * Many improvements on the XfceTrayIcon class (will be moved to
+ libxfcegui4 soon)
+ * Session managers tray icon can now be enabled/disabled from
+ the settings dialog
+ * Added more helpful tooltips to the settings dialog (translations
+ needs to be updated)
+
+20030713:
+---------
+ * Version 0.1.0
+ * Fixed problem with SaveYourself Phase2 being aborted (that
+ should also correct the xfwm4 save problem).
+ * Fixed problem with "session control" window beeing undecorated
+ * Fix problem with users splash themes directory not being created
+ when installing new themes
+ * Skip the splash screen window in tasklists and pagers (Gdk >= 2.2
+ only for now, a netk version is on the way, see util.c)
+
+20030712:
+---------
+ * Fixed tray icon problem
+ * New tray icon wrapper XfceTrayIcon, will be moved to libxfcegui4
+ later
+
+20030710:
+---------
+ * Added spec file
+ * Two Solaris fixes
+ * State is now displayed in "session control"
+ * added "Quit session" and "Save session" to the tray menu
+ (GtkImageMenuItem's now working btw.)
+ * Fixed bug in SaveYourselfDone code (manager does not entered
+ IDLE state after a succesfull checkpoint)
+ * Added UNIX signals support: SIGUSR1 saves current session, SIGINT
+ quits current session
+ * Added security check to xfce4-shutdown (shutdown.allow is only used
+ if owned by root)
+ * Honor fast SaveYourself requests
+
+20030708:
+---------
+ * startxfce4 in xfce-utils was altered to automatically use
+ xfce4-session by default if installed.
+ * Added "session control" dialog and tray icon. Made several
+ improvements. Now requires libxfcegui4 >= 3.92.2
+ * smproxy now works with xfce4-session, that says, X11R5 session
+ apps are now managed by the session manager as well (e.g. xcalc,
+ xedit, xbiff or even apps like gimp and gqview)
+
+20030707:
+---------
+ * Splash screen themes can now be selected from the settings plugin,
+ and in addition, you can also install new themes from the settings
+ plugin.
+ * Added docs/FAQ file.
+
+20030706:
+---------
+ * the session manager now takes care of starting files in
+ ~/Desktop/Autostart/ after all session aware apps are restarted.
+ This should make live easier, esp. with apps that depend on
+ the window manager already running.
+ * the splash screen is now themable. See docs/SplashThemes.txt for
+ further information. In addition, the splash screen also appears
+ when starting a default session, and not only when restoring a
+ previously saved session.
+
+20030702:
+---------
+ * session file naming scheme has changed from
+ ~/.xfce4/sessions/session-<hostname>
+ to
+ ~/.xfce4/sessions/xfsm-<hostname>
