yes it does, do the following:
Not well documented - took me quite a while to get it all figured out.
put a .menu file like this
<!DOCTYPE Menu PUBLIC "-//freedesktop//DTD Menu 1.0//EN"
make a directory "Local" (notice Local.directory above) and in it place a .desktop file (watch the case of the filename !):
Comment=Firefox V 5
The new menu entry should show up in the lxpanel menu "Other".
What I'd really like to be able to do is create my own sub-menus, but I haven't figured that out quite yet.
