Release Notes: Vertical-only/horizontal-only maximization no longer gets reset to full maximization on work area changes. Hsetroot can now be given a screen mask to operate on. Window position hints are updated after a non-opaque move. Segfaults with pixmap themes were fixed. Imlib2 warnings are now gone. An X error when displaying an empty menu was fixed. Rounded corners were added menus (same style option as windows). Themes with no titlebar, no handlebar, and/or no left/right edge are now possible. Skip taskbar flag handling was fixed. The desktop menu now shows the correct desktop names, which are defined in the config file.
Release Notes: This version features bugfixes that should improve stability especially compared to 0.6. There are improvements to shaped windows, fixes for segfaults and smart window placement, window icons in task switcher, and the ability to call scripted actions from menus.
Release Notes: This release features a new, more powerful styling engine, supporting pixmap borders on windows, gradient transparency, and the ability to do much more without pixmaps, resulting in easily recolorable themes. Many other changes were made.
Release Notes: This release mainly consists of fixes. These fixes apply to problems with dockapp styles, display of window label text, keyboard menu navigation, xinerama maximization and window placement, window state toggles, shaped windows, "reload" menu item, and the autostart launch() function. Binary size was also reduced by about 15%.
Release Notes: userconfig.py was overhauled, the dependency on Esetroot was relieved with the inclusion of hsetroot, partial-width title bars were added (a la BeOS), styles can now specify fallback fonts, startup time was shortened, menus are now dynamically reloaded, window stacking is now per-desktop, desktop menus are now dynamically generated, and iconified windows now display in parentheses. A few improvements were made to autostart. Moving a window now resets its maximized state, and actions now can be delayed. Many fixes were made, and merged windows are gone.
