Keyboard layout switching plugin for the Xfce panel

This plugin displays the current keyboard layout, and refreshes when layout changes. Also the layout can be switched by simply clicking on the plugin. The new version can display the layout as text label and also as an image of the corresponding country’s flag. If the flag image is unavailable then the plugin falls back to displaying text label for that layout.

This plugin is used along with the XKB extension. For now the keyboard layouts cannot be configured from the plugin itself, they should be set in the Xorg file or some other way e.g. setxkbmap.
