It's not a taskbar, but it's everything else! :-) Someday maybe it will be
a taskbar. Right now it is basically a launcher to run programs. You can
use it in either start-menu style (a menu of stuff to launch) or
icon-style (icons you single-click to launch programs). Or both. It also
swallows applications and has applets that do various little things. For
example there's a CPU load applet, and a desktop pager applet if your
window manager supports it, and some fun applets like Wanda the fish and a
sliding tiles game.
The latest version to be released this week has several different modes,
one spans the whole screen, one shrinks to fit the contained applets. You
can have as many panels as you want and you can have panels that fold into
other panels ("drawers"). You can end up with a panel full of panels that
themselves contain panels etc. until you run out of screen space -
compeletely useless, but pretty fun.
