Running ROX applications from Xfce
I spent a bit of time this weekend hacking on the Xfce panel. The result is that you can now install programs by dragging a URL from a web-browser into the Xfce panel's launcher dialog (much as ROX users do with AddApp). This makes it easy to put ROX applications into your panel; just drag the links from the Zero Install software index to the dialog, as in this screenshot:
Note: currently it only sets the name and command automatically. It would be quite possible to set the summary from the downloaded interface file, and to download the icon as well. I'll wait for feedback from the Xfce people before going further, though.
