Today we are pleased to announce the development of our new default desktop for Black Lab Linux; Workspace Manager.  Workspace Manager will be fully compatible with all XFCE applets and tools, many of them will not be changing from what the XFCE project delivers. We will have some exciting features that will be integrated. We will be integrating:

Skippy XD
Black Lab Imager
Secure Wipe

And many many more. While the target for this will be Black Lab Linux. Users of Red Hat, Debian, SUSE will be more than welcome to compile it for their own platforms and can contribute etc. Many of these features will be integrated with XFCE 4.11 and Black Lab, 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.4 so the change will not be very drastic come Workspace Manager 1.0 wiith Black Lab 6.1
