New release of mcwm and some speculations
As you may know if you subscribe to the mcwm-announce mailing list I released a new version of the mcwm window manager in late november.
Please note that from this release
-b is no longer a boolean
option. It now requires a numeric argument, the number of pixels in
the border. 0 means mcwm asks the X server not to draw any borders.
From the NEWS file:
2011-11-22 * Now optionally starts programs when MODKEY + mouse buttons are pressed on root window. See config.h for configuration and the manual page for an example. Also simplified starting programs. 2011-11-17 * In a ConfigureRequest we no longer obey window movements not initiated by the user. * Fixed bug where client-initiated resize could resize outside of physical screen. * Fixed bug with topright command on other physical screens. * -b no longer boolean. Now takes parameter number of pixels.
There are a few items left in the TODO file. I'm currently swamped with other things but two things stand out: 1) window operations menu, and, 2) separate workspaces per physical screens.
Christian Neukirchen sent me a nice patch for hiding windows and getting them back again with the help of a script he wrote and the 9menu program. I'm thinking about what to do with them. Chances are I'm going to include a menu handling for hidden windows in the mcwm proper instead of relying on an external program.
