./wm/ratpoison, Simple window manager with no fat library dependencies

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


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.4.9nb4, Package name: ratpoison-1.4.9nb4, Maintainer: tonio

Ratpoison is a simple Window Manager with no fat library
dependencies, no fancy graphics, no window decorations,
and no flashy hubris. It is largely modelled after GNU
Screen which has done wonders in virtual terminal market.

All interaction with the window manager is done through
keystrokes. ratpoison has a prefix map to minimize the
key clobbering that cripples EMACS and other quality
pieces of software.

ratpoison: Update to 1.4.8

Changes since 1.4.8

* Incompatible changes

** command `compat' and the various def* compat commands were removed

** `msgwait', `rudeness', `startupmessage', `warp' are now variables
The msgwait, rudeness, startup_message and warp commands will stay
around for a few releases.  Upgrade your config file now!

* Feature/misc changes

** XRandR support
ratpoison now uses XRandR to detect screens additions/removals at
runtime.  The Xinerama support has been removed.

** the focus* commands can be used to navigate across screens

** window completion match by substring, case-insensitive

** new variable `framemsgwait'
Timeout (in seconds) for the `Current frame' message window.
If set to -1, no message is shown.

** better `select' error handling

** the command `set' with no argument dumps a list of all variables/values

** unknown commands are now logged as warnings to stdout too
Should help debugging a config file.

** various cleanups and minor bugfixes

* Packaging changes

** ratpoison now depends on libXrandr instead of libXinerama

** ratpoison doesn't link against libhistory by default any more
Use ./configure --enable-history to force the use of said library.

** no ChangeLog file
Please use the git repository instead.  Savannah offers a web interface.

** no more timestamps in compiled code
Should help reproducible builds.
