If I right-click on the lower panel I get a single choice: "Preferences". That 
opens a window with

  Window List Content
    o Show windows from currecnt workspace
    o Show windows from all workspaces

 Window Grouping
    o Never group windows
    o Group windows when space is limited
    o Always group windows

 Restoring Minimized Windows (disabled unless Show All is selected above)
    o Restore to current workspace
    o Restore to native workspace

That's it. No "panel options" or "panel settings". No "more settings" .
