Hi dear fellows,
Sawfish 1.6.2 is now officially available!
* from this release on we provide Tar/BZ2 and Tar/XZ tarballs
* Tar/XZ is ~30% smaller but not all distros shipp the decompression utils
* Moreover all downloads moved from SF to Tuxfamily, caused by the idiotic US laws
* caused SF to deny access from several "evil" countries. Tuxfamily is a french
* service -> therefore we are "save" here.
Tar/BZ2: http://download.tuxfamily.org/sawfish/sawfish/sawfish-1.6.2.tar.bz2 3,54 MB
Tar/XZ : http://download.tuxfamily.org/sawfish/sawfish/sawfish-1.6.2.tar.xz 2,37 MB
1.6.2 "Mighty Disco King" ========================= * The 1.6.2 release has some improvements. * Bugfixes - Application menu is more robust now. [Matthew Love, Christopher Bratusek] Application menu, introduced in 1.6.0, made Sawfish crash if `*.desktop' file had a malformed key value (say ; as first character or # somewhere inside), or it was unreadable. It is fixed. - Minor fix of window placement by direction [Teika kazura] When the window placement mode is for example `east' and the window is wider than the screen, then the window was put wrongly. It is fixed. * New features - New command `maximize-discard' [Teika kazura] The command `maximize-discard' stops a maximized window to be treated as maximized any more, so that you can move and resize the window. The functinon `maximize-discard' has existed, and now it's exported. - New command `jump-or-exec' [Christopher Bratusek] The user uploaded module "jump-or-exec" has been merged. It provides `jump-or-exec', a command which may be used to focus a window, or if it does not exist, start the application. Unlike the original version this one also supports matching a window by its class (returned by `window-class' function), which makes it more flexible for applications like music player or browsers, which tend to change their WM_NAME relatively often. For usage, see `lisp/sawfish/wm/commands/jump-or-exec.jl' file. * Misc - Improved ebuild and specfile [Christopher Bratusek] [Kim B. Heino] - Updated documentation [Christopher Bratusek] [Teika Kazura] - Removed `frame-style-editable-p' and all other remaining sawfish-themer fragments, as it's dead. [Christopher Bratusek]
