Scwm 0.99.2 is released.
* What Scwm is:
Scwm is the Scheme Constraints Window Manager. This is a highly
dynamic and extensible window manager and scripting facility 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.
