./wm/dwm, Dynamic window manager

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 6.1, Package name: dwm-6.1, Maintainer: leot

dwm is a dynamic window manager for X. It manages windows in tiled,
monocle and floating layouts. All of the layouts can be applied
dynamically, optimising the environment for the application in use
and the task performed.

In tiled layout windows are managed in a master and stacking area.
The master area contains the window which currently needs most
attention, whereas the stacking area contains all other windows.
In monocle layout all windows are maximised to the screen size. In
floating layout windows can be resized and moved freely.

Windows are grouped by tags. Each window can be tagged with one or
multiple tags. Selecting certain tags displays all windows with
these tags.

Each screen contains a small status bar which displays all available
tags, the layout, the number of visible windows, the title of the
focused window, and the text read from the root window name property,
if the screen is focused.

Log message:
Update wm/dwm to 6.1.

  - Now uses Xft for font rendering by default with fallback-font
support, this also allows anti-aliased fonts and such.
    The font string matching will be different, check out
http://www.freedesktop.org/software/fon … -user.html
for the font string syntax, huge thanks to Eric Pruitt and the other
people who worked on the dwm-xft patch (previously on the wiki).
  - Uses a shared libdraw codebase (also used for dmenu right now).
  - _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW improvements (Andreas Amanns).
  - _NET_CLIENT_LIST support (Andreas Amanns).
  - Spawn dmenu on the selected monitor in dwm (dmenu -m option).
  - Use st as default terminal from now on (used to be xterm).

Notable fixes:
  - Barwin memory leak fix (Eckehard Berns).
  - Drw_text width check fix (Jochen).
  - Setfullscreen: don't process the property twice (Quentin Rameau,
Markus Teich).
  - Smoother resizing of floating windows (capped at 60fps), (Hiltjo).
  - Unfocus on slow sloppy monitor focus (Connor Lane Smith).

Build improvements:
  - config.mk: add $FREETYPELIBS and $FREETYPEINC, simpler to override
(ports and *BSDs).
