./wm/fvwm, Newer version of X11 Virtual window manager

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.6.9, Package name: fvwm-2.6.9, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Fvwm is a very famous window manager for X, which provides a
virtual/multiple disjoint desktop, a 3-D look for windows decorations,
shaped/color icons. It gives a very good emulation of mwm. A nice
button-bar can be used to provide convenient access to frequently used
functions or programs.

This package uses fvwm-users-jp-kits also, to add internationalized
feature (based on X itself) to fvwm and its modules.

With this package, you may use fonts of your own language, display
characters in everywhere in fvwm, and have fun ;-)

      - FvwmSave       (no replacement)

* fvwm-menu-desktop updated:

  - Renamed default menu to XDGMenu and changed the name

  - Improved dynamic menus by regenerating them on-the-fly.
  - Added new options: --regen-cmd, --dynamic, and more.

* Bug fixes:

  - A bug introduced in 2.6.6 could cause applications with

    mode.  This has been fixed.
  - FvwmButtons "Silent" option for dynamic ChangeButton commands
    no longer loops infinitely.

Changes in stable release 2.6.6 (15-Mar-2016)

* New fvwm features:

  - Support for Russian from Ivan Gayevskiy.
  - EnvMatch supports infostore variables.
  - The option "forget" to the Maximize command allows to
    unmaximize a window without changing its size and position.
  - Windows shaded to a corner (NW, NE, SW, SE) are reduced to a
    small square.
  - New option "!raise" to the WarpToWindow command.
  - The new extended variables $[wa.x], $[wa.y], $[wa.width],
    $[wa.height] can be used to get the geometry of the EWMH
    working area, and $[dwa.x], $[dwa.y], $[dwa.width],
    $[dwa.height] can be used to get the geometry of the EWMH
    dynamic working area.
  - The Resize commands accept "wa" or "da" as a suffix of the
    width or height value.  If present, the value is a percentage
    of the width or height of the EWMH working area or the EWMH
    dynamic working area.
  - Fvwm is much more resilient against applications that flood the
    window manager with repeated events.

* New module features:

  - FvwmForm supports separator lines.
  - New FvwmIconMan options:

* Bug fixes:

  - Provide a wrapper for the deprecation of XKeycodeToKeysym and
    use XkbKeycodeToKeysym() where appropriate.
  - fvwm-menu-desktop is re-written and provides better support of
    the XDG menu specification.
  - Fix fvwm-menu-desktop keyError bug.  Use "others" if no desktop
    environment found.
  - FvwmIconMan had problems displaying the hilight colour on some
    systems (64 bit issue?).
  - Globally active windows cannot take the focus if the style
    forbids programs to take focus themselves (style
  - Windows no longer jump from one position to the other which
    could happen in some cases with SnapAttraction.  Windows now
    snap to the closest window (or screen edge).
  - Removing bindings had several strange side effects that are
    fixed now (removing too many bindings; old bindings showing up
    again after another is removed; possibly other effects).
  - Windows sometimes did not get expose events (i.e. did not
    redraw properly) if they were uncovered by moving a window
    above them.  This has been fixed.
  - FvwmConsole now causes much less network traffic.
  - Suppress bogus events sent to the modules when a window is
    resized with the mouse.
  - Properly handle the has_ref_window_moved flag for ResizeMove and
  - Removed some unnecessary redraws in FvwmPager.
  - The option "NoDeskLimitY" option of the GotoPage command did
    not work.
  - Negative coordinates in the "rectangle" option to the Menu
    commend did not work correctly.  This has been fixed.
  - Removes a slight graphics problem whith the ResizeMaximize
    command being invoked from a window button menu.
  - When an attempt to reparent a client window (i.e. decorate
    it) fails, fvwm no longer throws away all events but only the
    events for that window.
  - The ChangeButton command of FvwmButtons used to strip
    whitespace from the beginning and end of button titles and
    image paths.  This is no longer done.
