January was a great month for users of Xfce 4.16.  

The popular desktop environment received a much-improved window manager with better support for AMD/Radeon machines when using the AMDGPU driver, support for interactive resizing of windows via any keyboard modifier, and the ability to untile windows before entering full-screen mode so that the apps can fill the entire screen.

Mousepad appears to be the star of the month. The simple text editor for Xfce adds many new features and improvements, including new Viewer Mode toggle, Delete Line action, the ability to display the current encoding in the status bar, support for selecting the encoding of the file in the Open and Save As dialogs, and file monitoring support, as well as the ability to make the automatic addition of the last EOL character configurable.
