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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.4.9, Package name: ratpoison-1.4.9, 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.

Required to run:
[fonts/Xft2] [lang/perl5] [devel/readline] [x11/libXtst] [x11/liboldXrandr]

Required to build:

Log message:
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.

Log message:
Update to 1.4.8, provided by Mayuresh on pkgsrc-users.

* Changes since 1.4.7
This is mostly a bugfix release.

** fix cmd_sfdump with multiple screens
Broken since last release, from Joshua Leners.

** respect --enable-history=no
From Jeroen Roovers (jer@gentoo).

** fix for sloppy.c
The ugly sloppy.c had "a bug".  It may be fixed now.

** README improvements
From Jeff Abrahamson.

* Changes since 1.4.6
** More fixes and code cleanup.

** UTF-8 editing support in the input bar

** get rid of "XGetWMName failed" spam on stderr
Introduced in the previous release, sorry!

** groups can now be renumbered (`gnumber')

** contrib/rpdate.sh, fancy calendar shell script to use instead of `time'

** fix `meta', which was sending garbage and made firefox unusable

** handle errors about missing config files
- ratpoison -f missing-config-file -> error
- unreadable ~/.ratpoisonrc file -> warning

** respect --sysconfdir for the global ratpoisonrc file
Rather than a hardcoded /etc/ratpoisonrc location.

** rpws gains a new `current' command (prints the current workspace)

** new manpage, mdoc(7) formatted

** X socket closed before spawning processes
Let's save those precious file descriptors.

** DWIM windows/groups names matching
Window and group names are first looked up for exact match; in last
resort a fuzzy match is attempted.

** try to cope with unset/empty HOME env. variable

** ratpoison.el is now installed at the proper location
ie. in $prefix/share/emacs/site-lisp/

** ratpoison now restricts permissions on your history file

* Changes since 1.4.5
** *Lots* of reliability fixes in ratpoison itself
Please check out the ChangeLog for more details.

** Build process cleanup
e.g. detection of getline() was fixed, build is ok with old gcc's (2.95)

** ratpoison -c now reports errors ($? != 0)

** UTF-8 text is now printed correctly
Both with and without Xft support.

** contrib/ cleanup
Scripts should be more portable, ruby bindings work with newer ruby versions.

** New newwindow and titlechanged hooks

** Functionality was added to rpws
It can now move windows to other workspaces; workspaces can be dumped and
