One wonders if the very broken yumex-dnf will still be very broken at Beta release time. <..:p..>

About friggin time, not that I give a damn about the beta release.

The XFCE beta spin is MIA in the last beta 1.6.... Isn't 1.6 supposed to be the final beta????

edit: I see this has been discovered and discussed.... But I am confused on what the final decision was? Just use the XFCE 1.4 release or will there be a 1.7?

@gman - have you already installed F24 XFCE alpha or beta? If so, just update it with dnf or your preferred GUI based package manager and you will have the latest beta freeze packages.
