libpng. It can support some MWM, GNOME, and WM Spec hints.

Configuration Changes

The following XSLT is available to update JWM v2.2 configuration files for use
with JWM v2.3: jwm-2.3.xslt.

To convert an existing v2.2 configuration file using xsltproc, run:

cp ~/.jwmrc ~/.jwmrc.old
xsltproc jwm-2.3.xslt ~/.jwmrc.old > ~/.jwmrc

If you have multiple configuration files, it may be necessary to apply the XSLT
to some or all of them depending on what configuration options are stored in
the file.

A summary of configuration changes follows.

  * The ActiveBackground and ActiveForeground tags have been replaced by
    Background and Foreground under the Active tag. This applies to TrayStyle,
    TaskListStyle, TrayButtonStyle, PagerStyle, and MenuStyle.
  * The Inactive tag under WindowStyle has been removed. The tags that used to
    go within this tag now go directly under the WindowStyle tag.
  * The autohide attribute in Tray now determines where the tray should be
    hidden (left, right, top, bottom, or off) instead of true or false.
  * Now actions in the Clock tag must be prefixed with exec: to run an external
