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: 3,54 MB

Tar/XZ : 2,37 MB

What's New?


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

        - 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

        - 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'

   * Misc
        - Improved ebuild and specfile [Christopher Bratusek] [Kim B.

        - Updated documentation [Christopher Bratusek] [Teika Kazura]

        - Removed `frame-style-editable-p' and all other remaining
          sawfish-themer fragments, as it's dead. [Christopher Bratusek]

Have Fun,
