Fedora Update Notification

Name        : xmonad
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 0.9.2
Release     : 8.fc15
URL         : http://hackage.haskell.org/package/xmonad
Summary     : A tiling window manager
Description :
xmonad is a tiling window manager for X. Windows are arranged
automatically to tile the screen without gaps or overlap, maximising
screen use. All features of the window manager are accessible from
the keyboard: a mouse is strictly optional. xmonad is written and
extensible in Haskell. Custom layout algorithms, and other
extensions, may be written by the user in config files. Layouts are
applied dynamically, and different layouts may be used on each
workspace. Xinerama is fully supported, allowing windows to be tiled
on several screens.

This is a meta-package that installs xmonad-core and ghc-xmonad-contrib-devel,
allowing xmonad to be configured with "~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs".

Update Information:

Add new xmonad-gnome and xmonad-core subpackages.
The base package now pulls in ghc-monad-devel again and
also ghc-xmonad-contrib-devel for user customization.

* Wed May 11 2011 Jens Petersen <petersen at redhat.com> - 0.9.2-7
- xmonad-start no longer execs xmonad not to confuse gnome-session
