WingPanel is a new ‘space-saving top panel’ created by, you’ve guessed it, the elementary team.
So what is it? A quick presentation of how it looks and behaves is presented below, courtesy of team member Chawsum.
"It’s simply a sexy panel that houses indicators. It shall float above windows, so that it steals space from the window titlebar."
The code for the app – which given its ‘newness’ doesn’t actually do much of anything just yet – can be found on the launchpad page @ launchpad.net/wingpanel.
To avoid disappointment give it a few weeks before trying it out – we’ll certainly let you know as soon as it does something.
