Blackbox is yet another addition to the list of window managers for X. It is written in C++, sharing no common code with any other window manager (even though the graphics implementation is similar to that of WindowMaker). It features small code size, a fast interface with simple menus, multiple workspaces, decorated windows, built-in graphics code to render solids, gradients, and bevels on the fly, and more.

Release Notes: Compilation on OpenBSD and Mac OS X was fixed, documentation updates were made, and the FDO basedir was implemented. Window-to-window and window-to-center snap was added along with config options for additional mouse wheel operations. Pipe menus were implemented. Placement of dialog and desktop type windows was improved. Users can now override the rootCommand styles. Better default colors are now used when no style is given. Shaded+maximized windows no longer disappear after restarting. Window menus can now be accessed with Mod4+right mouse. Full-screen now ignores aspect ratios. Many bugfixes were made.
Release Notes: This version implemented version 1.3 of the EWMH standard, and overhauled style syntax, advanced features, and control. bbkeys 0.9.0 is recommended for EWMH compliant keyboard shortcut support.
Release Notes: This release adds better ICCCM support, Java window handling, bugfixes, and more.
Release Notes: This release adds Taiwan Chinese (zh_TW), Hungarian (hu_HU), Korean (ko_KR), Norwegian (no_NO), Polish (pl_PL), Romanian (ro_RO), and Ukrainian (uk_UA) locale support. There are numerous speedups, improved ICCCM support, better Java application support, and lots more.
Release Notes: Japanese nls has been updated. When CascadePlacement is selected, the options for directions are now disabled because CascadePlacement is always LeftRight, TopBottom. The workspace change code has been streamlined; it should be slightly more efficient now. The window menu is now created at the end of the Window constructor, thereby ensuring that all of the data the menu needs is available; this fixes the broken window names in the menus. Shape information is now dealt with later in the constructor as well, for similar reasons.
