This is to announce the 0.1.2 release of gde_appmenu, an application menu for
gtk+ based desktop environments

gde_appmenu is an implementation of the application menu common to these
found in GNOME 2.0, Mate, XFCE and LXDE on GNU/Linux and Unix OSes. This
is however independent of any particular desktop environment and can
provide quick and simple access to the installed desktop applications
in any context where the desktop provides no direct access. It works in
X11 and Wayland sessions.

top left corner of the screen, with an application menu that drops down
