A bleeding edge gtk+2 panel that does not reinvent the wheel. The primary target of this project is to provide a panel that reuses whatever available (if not overkilling) in the obvious way, such as subclassing GtkWidget instead of implementing applets (whatever they are) or by using a GtkBuilder file instead of defining a new format to customize the panel. This approach gives some additional advantages for free: you can use common tools in uncommon ways. Above all you can use glade to design your own panel.
All the dependencies apart Gtk+ are (and hopefully will be) optionals.
