Release 0.94 of the fvwm X11-window manager on Sunsite

Post by Robert Nati » Mon, 16 Aug 1993 05:42:30



Fvwm release 0.94 (source and binaries only) has been uploaded to sunsite,
as file /pub/Linux/Incoming/fvwm-0.93-source.tar.z and
/pub/Linux/Incoming/fvwm-0.94-binaries.tar.z.

Fvwm is a light-weight window manager which provides a simple virtual
desktop, a 3-D look for windows decorations, and color icons.

Memory consumption for Fvwm is about 1/2 to 1/3 that of twm.
Fvwm is targeted at machines with too little memory, and at laptops
on which mouse usage may be awkward. All window manager functions
can be performed (conveniently) without a mouse.

In this release we have the following new features:
1. Proper sub-menus
2. A separate window title font and a font for everything else
3. User-selectable cursors

Bug Fixes:
1. Fixed some occasional crashes.
2. Fixed the drifting windows in the right and bottom pages
3. Xlock should now work.
4. Fixed the problem with xterms not getting solid/hollow cursors at the
   right times.

Note: If you want to use color icons, you will need to get the Xpm libraries:
 /pub/X11/contrib/xpm-3.2g.tar.Z for the Xpm library, or
 /pub/Linux/X11/libs, file libXpm32g.tar.z. for a pre-compiled shared
                       library of libXpm for Linux.
 /pub/X11/contrib/xpm1icons.tar.Z, sample icons
 /pub/X11/contrib/xpm2icons.tar.Z, more sample icons
 /pub/X11/contrib/xpm3icons.tar.Z, still more sample icons
 /pub/X11/contrib/ctwm-3.0.tar.Z, pull out the icons. ctwm has really nice
                        color icons.

as file /pub/Linux/Incoming/fvwm-0.97-source.tar.z and
/pub/Linux/Incoming/fvwm-0.97-binaries.tar.z.

I will be unable to generate a binary distribution for 1 or 2 weeks. If
someone else would like to do it for me, please do.

In this release we have the following several new features:
1. Maximize takes optional arguments to effect maximize vertical or
   maximize horizontal.
   (See the Maximize portion of the man page.)
2. A WindowList similar to TwmWindows.
   (See the WindowList section of the man page).
3. SuppressIcons. Can be used in conjunction with WindowList to
   achieve an icon manager.
   (See SuppressIcons in the man page).
3. AutoRaise (delay)
   (See the AutoRaise part of the man page).
4. Improved click-to-focus handling
5. Ability to construct complex functions
   (See the Function part of the man page)
6. A default icon (see the Icon section of the man page)
7. User selectable button decoration styles (see the ButtonStyle
   section of the man page.)
8. A CursorMove function for mouseless operation
   (see the CursorMove section of the man page).
9. The start of an mwm_like.fvwmrc for mwm fans.
10. Option for 2 column menus so you can list your shortcuts there
    (like mwm).

Important Bug Fixes:
1. Fixed some problems with binding keyboard keys to decoration points.
2. Fixed internal error found when de-iconifying windows.
3. (Finally) fixed the xterm-solid/hollow cursor problem.
4. Fixed button 2 problems with click-to-focus mode.
5. Fixed some aligned problems with shaped windows.
6. See the ChangeLog for more details
