fvwm-ewmh-0.3 - Extended WM Hints for FVWM

Post by Olivier Chapui » Fri, 06 Jul 2001 12:14:45



I am glad to announce the third release of fvwm-ewmh: version 0.3

fvwm-ewmh is made up of a module, FvwmNetHints, and a patch against
the last stable FVWM source tree (fvwm-2.4.0). With these, FVWM can
handle Extended Window Manager Hints from the freedesktop group.
This allows running FVWM with KDE version 2 and get a special
support for applications based on the development version of GTK+
(aka GTK+ version 2).

This package is now pre-beta. I need feedback (or flame) so that
fvwm-ewmh can become beta. Also, I need help with the English of
the documentation (of course help with the code is welcome too).
