Project Release Information
More robustness for get-window-by-* functions. Fixes all issues in higher-level functions, like failing jump-or-exec. Doing cursor-warping to a shaded window now warps to the correct position. Manager selection handling has been fixed. Failing to generate an application menu, while parsing incorrect .desktop files, has been fixed. In EdgeActions, HotSpot, HotMove, and EdgeFlip are prevented from being invoked multiple times a time. This release fixes Debian packaging scripts and makes compilation with makepp instead of GNU make work.
Cursor-warping to a shaded window now properly works. EdgeActions are prevented from being called multiple times at once. SawfishConfig can now also grab mouse-bindings. New hooks are before/after-edge-action-hook and before-restart-hook. New EdgeActions are HotMove and Tiling. In SawfishConfig, several helper-widgets were removed. Many of the meta-widgets use more modern GTK+2 widgets. The general appearance and layout have been improved. New features include MouseTrapping and SingleWindowMode.
This release improves the Edge-Actions configuration infrastructure, makes it fully deactivatible, and updates its documentation. It removes unneeded classes from command definitons, improves .desktop files, fixes uninstalling Sawfish, and improves Debian packaging scripts (broken at the moment). The following translations were updated: German, Spanish, Czech, Slovenian, and Malay.
The apps-menu is now fully configurable via filters. EdgeActions have been added, providing a centralized structure to setting up actions for your screen-borders. The Tab-System has been greatly improved; manual adjustment of themes, for example, is no longer required. StyleTab is the new default theme, in favor of Crux. The following translations were updated: Spanish, Czech, German, Chinese (Simplified), Norwegian Bokmal, Slovenian, and French. Several minor bug fixes and documentation updates were made.
Installation was fixed for non-root users (private installations). The session files for KDE, GNOME, and XDM are now selectable via configure. A bug in interactive "call-command" was fixed.
Sawfish (the window manager formerly known as Sawmill) is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based extension language. All window decorations are configurable and all user-interface policy is controlled through the language. Its aim is to manage windows in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. As such it does not implement desktop backgrounds, application docks, or other things that may be achieved through separate applications. Sawfish is mostly GNOME-compliant; almost all configuration may be made through a graphical interface.
