squeeze has been removed from portage. also update homepage for thunar plugins.
Fix bug #389089 - It is not pure cache, but also profile information that is removed. Upgrades however are not supported that we know of (migration). Thanks to Sergey S. Starikoff for reporting.

remove abiword-plugins, since it has been removed from portage
Add a note on removing old cached sessions when upgrading to 4.8 -- bug 354103
remove branding flag from the meta USE flags; no longer used
update xfce guide for 4.8 stuff, still waiting on a full list of package drops/suggested replacements, but this should be good in the mean time
fix trash plugin description, thanks to ssuominen for the email notice
add xfce4-power-manager info. add XFCE_PLUGINS variable and explanations per bug 334181.
firefox packagemove by nirbheek
update opera USE flags; now has a gtk flag, no need for qt-static. bug 328087.
more terminal info, etc. per bug 323801
thunderbird package name change
Add gnome/kde links just for comparison. Also add info about startx with ck-launch-session if ConsoleKit is installed, so that apps don't break.
remove qt3 USE flag now that nothing uses it
Use env.d for the xsession variable location, not rc.conf. bug 295180.
fixed email to use the new guidexml goodness; no content change so no revbump
#288075 List jpeg in USE flags
the minimal flag is back in, and it is assumed users have it disabled for the guide. the flag only controls whether xfce4-icon-theme and dejavu fonts are pulled in, as otherwise things can break unless you're installing your own font packages and icon theme from the get-go. i.e. power users who've done a hundred xfce installs. thanks to ssuominen for the heads-up on IRC
overhaul the xfce guide for all the crazy unannounced changes to the xfce package names, categories, USE flags, and dependencies. i think i managed to cover them all. i also added some recommended apps and utilities.
the xfce team removed xfce4-settings from the dependency lists, so it has to be manually merged if you want to be able to change important stuff. added it into the install instructions, since basically everyone will want this.
update xfce guide for 4.6, other app changes too
package has a new name
upon further reflection, abiword does not need its own code listing. instead i trimmed it down and briefly mentioned abiword-plugins.
punt GDM and its numerous gnome dependencies in favor of the much more appropriate lightweight SLiM (Simple Login Manager)
removed 4.2 to 4.4 upgrade section. 4.2 has been gone from the tree for months. some parts of it may be relevant in the future in case of a major ABI/API break from some Xfce point release, if so then that's what CVS history is for, right?
better USE flag additions
more guidexml coding style changes as per xml-guide.xml, no content change. (i'm really doing a lot of these today, aren\'t i\?)
added xscreensaver USE flag to pull it in, so removed explicit emerge instructions
whitespace, no cntent change
gaim is being deprecated in favor of pidgin, its renamed, up-to-date replacement
sylpheed-claws has been masked for removal
added note about following xorg-config as requested by drac on IRC
pointed users to the actual documentation location, after some discoveries i made that were pointed out to me on IRC. thanks to drac for suggesting.
added a bit on focus stealing prevention, thanks to nichoj and kingtaco for experimenting
Updated my xfce guide for 4.4. lots of new fixes, changes, additions, etc. 4.4 rox your sox.
fixed adding users to groups section, thanks to a forwarded email from drac
added extra bit about per-user .icons and .themes installation to my xfce guide
new guide: xfce-config guide, bug 161107
