./wm/i3, Improved dynamic tiling window manager

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 4.23nb2, Package name: i3-4.23nb2, 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:
i3: update to 4.22.

The biggest change in this release is the merge of the i3-gaps fork.
The i3-gaps fork was the most popular fork of i3, adding the option to
show gaps between tiled windows and/or the screen edges.

See https://i3wm.org/docs/userguide.html#gaps for more details.

Instead of maintaining two versions of i3 (both upstream and downstream,
meaning in Linux distributions and other package collections),
we concluded it would be better for everyone to merge this feature.

For users of i3: gaps are off by default, so there is no change in behavior.
For users of i3-gaps: the configuration is compatible, so you can switch
to i3 v4.22 or newer, without any changes in behavior.

Thanks to Ingo Bürk for maintaining i3-gaps for many years,
for becoming a core i3 maintainer and for helping make this merge possible!

 ┌───────────────────────── \ 
 │ Release notes for i3 v4.21   │
 └───────────────────────── \ 

This is i3 v4.21. This version is considered stable. All users of i3 are
strongly encouraged to upgrade.

The biggest change in this release is that you can now drag tiling windows
with your mouse (floating windows could already be dragged). For more details
on how to use this feature, please refer to the userguide:


A big thank you goes out to our core i3 developer Orestis Floros who made this
feature possible, based on previous work from Michael Forster and Tony Crisci!

 └───────────────────────── \ 

  • Allow dragging tiling windows with the mouse

    allowing users to cycle focus between e.g. VGA1 and LVDS1 but not DVI0.
  • Add a toggle option to the title_window_icon command
  • i3 switched from the obsolete PCRE 8.x regular expression matching
    library to the current PCRE2 10.x version.

    the IPC socket when running i3 within i3 (e.g. in Xepyhr, for development)

  • Fix focus when moving container between outputs with mouse warp and
  • Fix endless loop with transient_for windows
