Updated to 1.1.11 now. The major changes include dragging multiple *.desktop files, allowing *.desktop files to be dropped into a completely empty menu, a performance improvement for the icon browser (at the cost of a slightly longer start up time for the menu editor), automagically creating ~/.config/compiz/boxmenu if it doesn't exist, and fixing the right-click menu for the editor to edit the item to bring up the item panel for that item.

I've also noticed that I haven't edited the Changelog. I should probably do that and create manpages for the binaries.

On a note that isn't related to feature updates, I've been doing a lot of my development on this over github, then just mirroring it back to SourceForge. Does anyone think I should change the upstream URLs to reflect this once I get a page for Compiz Boxmenu set up on github?

Updated to 1.1.10 now. Other than the Makefile tweaking to make this easier to put on *BSDs (which were 1.1.6-1.1.9 when I was working on them), there's also some little tweaks I made to the menu editor's UI to make it more usable (like not stretchy height toolbars, for example).

Please update the package. v1.1.5 is available :)

@Ephexeve: Do you have ccsm-{dev,bzr} installed? THat's probably what compiz-boxmenu-autoconfig is using to setup integration with Compiz.

Hello, I am catching this error when doing a compiz-boxmenu-autoconfig
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/usr/bin/compiz-boxmenu-autoconfig", line 3, in <module>
import compizconfig
ImportError: No module named compizconfig

Updated the PKGBUILD for the python2-lxml package switch: http://pastebin.com/SnBhagCW

@limser: Can you explain your reasoning why? The program was originally intended for standalone environments. I think it would be easy to change it to such a thing, but I also think pipemenus would be lost in the process of being able to read XDG menu files.

It is python2-lxml not python-lxml that compiz-boxmenu-editor would work well with.

I think it would be better if *.menu files can be read,just like xfce-applications.menu.

Fixed. ;)

Latest version is 1.1.1. There was a bug that slipped by me which involved trying to free the blank filler string when it was precacheing some files.
