Default Fluxbox 1.3: new release after more then 2 years

You did'nt see that coming, did you?
Sat Feb 19 18:50:02 UTC 2011

Fluxbox 1.3 has arrived! A long long long time is over, and we finally decided to make a release.
Added support for bidirectional text, #2801836.
Allow to override 'Focus New Windows' via .fluxbox/apps
New actions:
New 'MoveN' and 'ClickN' action support for keys file
New focus model 'StrictMouseFocus'. This will affect focus when closing, moving, lowering windows, changing desktops, etc, whereas the 'MouseFocus' model will only change focus when you move the mouse.
New "background: unset" property for use in overlays.
Allowing relative paths for background images in style files.
Allowing matching screen number in ClientPattern.
Removed rootcommand from init, as fbsetbg is run automatically nowadays.
Removed line style resources from init file.

In any case, we hope to get more into the 'flux' way of doing things, aka release early and often. So, have fun with this release.

Personal note from Mathias: This one is dedicated to the first official 'fluxbaby' on the planet: my daughter Karo, born on 6th of November 2010. Which is, btw, the birthday of Henrik as well

Just for laughs and giggles, I wonder how long until >= 3/4 of fluxbox users actually install it, after so long without a new release lol

I use fluxbox and am glad to see development is still alive. I downloaded 1.3.0 and will probably try it out next week. But ... looking at the new feature list, within my usage pattern those may be solutions looking for a problem. IOW I'm quite content with version 1.1.1.

I gave up trying to use fluxbox, the development versions crashed frequently on OpenBSD (..malloc bugs) and the developers aren't overly cooperative.

For what I do, cwm is more than adequate.

I used fluxbox for years, then recently switched to cwm. I agree, cwm is more than enough.
