With changes, almost all dialog boxes can be converted to CSD by default without any code adjustments to existing projects. ”
In the upcoming Xfce 4.16 update, Xfce Panel’s Dark mode under the Adwaita theme is already enabled by default. Icons have also been improved to create files and folders directly from the Directory Menu plug-in.

In addition, the Screen dialog now displays aspect ratio and preferred mode, while the Appearance dialog box now displays only the GTK3 theme.
