Fvwm release 0.91 has been uploaded to sunsite, as file
/pub/Linux/Incoming/fvwm-0.91.tar.z

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

Memory consumption for Fvwm is about 1/2 to 1/3 that of twm.

Several bug fixes have been made since release 0.9:
1. Problems with dialog boxes not appearing, and programs locking up,
   in particular xman.
2. Several stupid typos.
3. A problem with the high-light colors looking odd.

In addition, some new features have been added:
1. Click to focus mode. This is not compatible with keyboard shortcuts (yet).
2. DontMoveOff option, makes it impossible to loose a window by moving
   or placing it off the screen.
3. Some decorative improvements.
4. A restart option.

All these improvements have not increased the program size.

A Linux binary is included. To use it, you need Xfree86-1.3, and libc-4.4.1.

1. fvwm-0.92 X-11 window manager placed on sunsite

Fvwm release 0.92 has been uploaded to sunsite again, as file
/pub/Linux/Incoming/fvwm-0.92.tar.z.

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

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. 3D look for menus
2. 3D look for icon frames
3. Improved handling for shaped windows like oclock and xeyes. Since these
   extensions consume an extra 60Kbytes of memory by loading in portions
   of the LibXt shared library, they are not compiled in by default.

Bug Fixes:
1. Restart operation now works correctly
2. Several dialog box and pull-down menu bugs were fixed.

A Linux binary isincluded. To use it you will need libc-4.4.1, XFree-1.3.
Shaped window extensions are not included in the binary.
