Default FVWM 2.6 released after nearly ten years in development

From http://www.h-online.com/open/news/it...t-1229295.html

Quote:
After five years since a stable release and nearly ten years in development, version 2.6.0 of the FVWM window manager has been released. This new version adds numerous features including support for PNG/SVG icons, "unmanaged" windows, modules for moving windows and listing running windows, more style options, improved font support with anti-aliasing, GetText support for menu text, support for Perl based modules and mouse gesture bindings. The new release comes with a script, fvwm-convert-2.6, which will convert 2.4's config files to the 2.6's configuration format to simplify upgrading.

From recent discussions on the mailing list, I believe that 2.6 is going to seeing larger changes, I'm starting to think we may see stable releases built from GIT rather than CVS, and without the even/odd stuff.
