This post will be short, I’m tired.

One of the common feature requests was to make the categories shown in the applet customizable - that is, to have the possibility to choose which categories are shown. Well, starting from the current SVN version, you can.

If you don’t use the contacts or documents section, just don’t show them. You could make it show only the applications section thus making Lancelot more simple and more ‘traditional’.

Mind that this only affects the launcher applet itself, when the categories are shown inside it, and not the menu.

In other news…
