Scwm 0.7a is released.
Version 0.7 had a number of bugs, some of which kept it from even
compiling out of the box with some versions of Guile. Version 0.7a
remedies these and many other bugs. This version works with Guile 1.2
as well as the latest snapshot - really this time. I built and tested
fresh exports before tarring it up.
* What scwm is:
Scwm is the Scheme Configurable Window Manager. This is a highly
dynamic and extensible window manager for the X Window System (based
originally on fvwm2, but now much enhanced) with Guile Scheme as the
configuration/extension language. Nearly all decorations can be
changed at run-time or per-window, and eventually many decoration
styles and additional features will be supported through dynamically
loaded code. A powerful protocol is provided for interacting with the
window manager while it is running.
