Fedora Update Notification
2012-02-24 22:28:49

Name        : xmonad
Product     : Fedora 17
Version     : 0.10
Release     : 5.fc17
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-basic and ghc-xmonad-contrib-devel,
allowing xmonad to be customized with "~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs".

To use xmonad with GNOME, please install xmonad-gnome.

Update Information:

- new "basic" meta-subpackage pulls in xterm and dmenu for the basic default upstream configuration
- use gnome-terminal to display initial manpage for xmonad-gnome
- change the xmonad-gnome session name to xmonad-gnome


This update can be installed with the "yum" update program.  Use 
su -c 'yum update xmonad' at the command line.
