Hi all,

Scared about unconfigurable, feature-ressistant window-managers? Have no fear, WindowManager Hero X is here and with him the Sawfish-Crew (Kupo)!

And they present you:

Sawfish 1.6.1 "Astral"

Where to get it?


What's new?


1.6.1 "Astral"

   * The 1.6.1 release brings several bugfixes and improvements

   * Build and Installation
        - New/Updated requirements:
             + librep 0.90.4 -> 0.90.5

             + rep-gtk 0.90.0 -> 0.90.2

        - The configure option `--without-nine-mouse-buttons' is not
          allowed to have 4 hyphens, therefore it's renamed to
          `--without-nine-mousebuttons'.  [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Reworked configures help-message for better readability.
          [Kim B. Heino]

        - Configure now uses `kde4-config --install data' rather than
          `kde4-config --path data', so no sed-kludge is needed anymore.

          Make $datadir/kde4/apps/ the fallback path, if KDE4 is not
          installed.  [Kim B. Heino]

        - Majorly improved debian and rpm packaging scripts.
          [Christopher Bratusek] [Kim B. Heino]

        - The spec has been reworked to detect kde4/librep directories
          while runtime, instead of hardcoding those paths from
          configure, which makes it more portable.  [Kim B. Heino]

        - Our own implementation of dlmalloc is disabled since 2002, as
          it breaks sawfish on several architectures. From this version
          on, we don't ship it anymore.  [Kim B. Heino]

        - Export the imageloader beeing used by sawfish in the .pc file.
          [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Don't remove the .pot file upon `make distclean'.
          [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Install Sawfishs header files to $includedir/sawfish/.
          [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Autotools improvements (Makefile, & Co.)
          [Christopher Bratusek]

   * Bugfixes
        - Fixed a bug where the gnome-panels pager gets confused about
          the current viewport when displaying all workspaces.  [Jeremy

        - Fixed minor bugs in viewport.jl.  [Jeremy Hankins]

   * Doc
        - Fixed a small doc misstake (refered to window-set instead of
          window-put).  [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Fixed the docstrings of shrink and yank.  [Timo Korvola]

   * Misc
        - Last 3 instances of "sawmill" replaced by "sawfish".  [Kim B.

Have fun,
