Lancelot 4.5 updates so far

I’m not going to make a detailed post, just a screen-shot based overview of the new features you can expect in KDE 4.5.

Cascading popups

There was a lot of talk in the beginning about why Kickoff and Lancelot are not like the classic menu – and don’t have popups. Although I still don’t consider cascading popups to be good, liblancelot supports them. After a large amount of polishing, the feature is ready to be exposed in the menu itself. It is considered experimental, but it works quite well.

How to activate: Configure Lancelot Menu > Applications > Open popups for subcategories

This feature is not yet enabled for the Shelf applet (ex Lancelot Parts) but it still may find its way into it for 4.5.

Smaller section buttons.
