CrunchBang 11 R20130119 distribution, codenamed "Waldorf," is based on Wheezy sources, which is the testing branch of Debian. This means that changes, bugs and breakages are expected.

• Iceweasel updated to version 18;
• VLC has replaced GNOME-MPlayer;
• A Policy Kit Local Authority file has been added to enable easy mounting of internal drives within Thunar;
• xfce4-power-manager has been patched to fix a long-standing issue whereby the battery status icon would cause a visual error within tint2's system tray, after a system had been suspended and resumed.

A complete list of changes can be found in the official announcement.
