The complete list of changes to Whiskermenu since version 2.3.4 is as follows:

  • Fix saving unchanged plugin title. (bug #15403)
  • Fix sidebar scrollbar covering buttons. (bug #14730)
  • Fix categories remaining scrolled when hidden.
  • Fix incorrect alignment of commands next to search.
  • Fix incorrect fallback value for menu opacity.
  • Fix incorrect check when setting command.
  • Update documentation URL. (bug #16183)

The "whiskermenu" is more advanced than the regular Xfce menu. It has, among other things, a search box and a "recently used" list. Several GNU/Linux distributions like Manjaro Linux opt default to it instead of the much simpler standard Xfce menu.
