Happy New Year to you as well!

As far as I know, there are no intentions whatsoever of integrating a tray
utility into dwm. There are several standalone tray utilities that will do
the trick already, including stalonetray and trayer. Check your
distribution's software repository for these tray apps. They do not include
a panel (which is itself a separate utility) and are used only to provide
tray support.
