./wm/i3, Improved dynamic tiling window manager

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.13nb2, Package name: i3-4.13nb2, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Key features of i3 are correct implementation of Xinerama (workspaces are
assigned to virtual screens, i3 does the right thing when attaching new
monitors), XrandR support (not done yet), horizontal and vertical columns
(think of a table) in tiling. Also, special focus is on writing clean,
readable and well documented code. i3 uses xcb for asynchronous
communication with X11, and has several measures to be very fast.

Please be aware i3 is primarily targeted at advanced users and developers.

Log message:
Fix indentation in buildlink3.mk files.

The actual fix as been done by "pkglint -F */*/buildlink3.mk", and was
reviewed manually.

There are some .include lines that still are indented with zero spaces
although the surrounding .if is indented. This is existing practice.

Changes and bugfixes from release notes:

Changes in 4.13:

* build: wire up version handling for non-release tarballs (as opposed to git
* build: switch to the GNU build system
* i3bar: disable pango markup for plain-text input
* man/i3-msg: point out default ipc message type
* config: introduce support for specifying variables from X resources
* config: ensure variables match on longest-length, eliminating problems
  where one variable was a prefix of another
* config: do not count '\' in comment lines as line continuation
* ipc: introduce a new GET_BINDING_MODES command
* ipc: implement new window::mark event
* ipc: add ?output? to IPC events referencing a container
* make fullscreen windows open on the output which is indicated by their
  geometry (fixes LibreOffice Impress multi-monitor presentations)
* focus newly managed windows only if they don?t use the globally active
  input mode (fixes issues with RubyMine)
* remove title indentation in nested containers (rationale was unclear,
  nobody spoke up when we asked about the feature on i3-discuss)
* use the last known timestamp when calling xcb_set_input_focus (might fix
  rare race conditions in focus handling)
* introduce the "smart" option for hide_edge_borders, which will hide \ 
  when there is precisely one window on the workspace
* handle _MOTIF_WM_HINTS changes (_MOTIF_WM_HINTS were previously only
  considered when managing a new window)
* don?t change border style if BS_NORMAL is requested in _MOTIF_WM_HINTS
* only add numlock fallback for keybindings where necessary (allows users to
  correctly bind keys on the numpad)
* do not match docks in config and command criteria
* get DPI from the Xft.dpi resource instead of directly looking at the screen
* handle _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW for scratchpad windows (for pagers)
* set _NET_WM_DESKTOP to sticky for scratchpad windows
* add new criteria "tiling" and "floating"
* implement special output name "current" for commands
* handle ResizeRequests for tray clients (fixes VLC tray icon)

Bugfixes in 4.13:

* i3bar: fix crash when the I3SOCK environment variable is present
* i3-dmenu-desktop: do not die on failed open
* i3-input: properly position in non-standard cases (fixes an issue where
  i3-input would launch off-screen)
* i3-save-tree: rename "mark" to "marks" to reflect our \ 
recent change to
  allow multiple marks
* mouse bindings: only grab the mouse buttons that need to be grabbed
* no_focus: correctly count the number of windows (makes no_focus work with
  tabbed/stacked workspace layouts).
* properly close disabled outputs restored during a restart (this fixes state
  handling when RandR changes happen during i3 restarts)
* don't trigger bindings on window border clicks unless --border was
  specified for the binding
* traverse numbered workspaces in correct order
  fix transition from named to numbered workspaces in "workspace next|prev"
* avoid setting urgency hint on content containers and above (fixes crashes)
* don't trigger unrelated key bindings for --release bindings
* fix colormap handling for containers (fixes taking screenshots using xwd)
* check output crossing on ENTER_NOTIFY to dockarea (fixes pointer jumping)
* fix a use-after-free bug (fixes "floating enable" on single split \
