Name        : herbstluftwm
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 0.6.2
Release     : 1.fc20
URL         : http://herbstluftwm.org
Summary     : A manual tiling window manager
Description :
herbstluftwm is a manual tiling window manager for X11 using Xlib and Glib.
Its main features can be described with:

- The layout is based on splitting frames into subframes which can be split
again or can be filled with windows;
- Tags (or workspaces or virtual desktops or …) can be added/removed at
runtime. Each tag contains an own layout exactly one tag is viewed on each
monitor. The tags are monitor independent;
- It is configured at runtime via ipc calls from herbstclient. So the
configuration file is just a script which is run on startup.

Update Information:

Release 0.6.2 on 2014-03-27
 * A hlwm crash has been fixed. (Could be triggered by changing a non-callback settings attribute e.g. settings.raise_on_focus)
 * The dialog re-mapping-problem of qjackctl and scribus etc has been fixed
 * Releasing is so easy and so much fun using the release.sh

Release 0.6.1 on 2014-03-25

 * directional shift of floating windows
 * fix crash of directional focus
 * document theme.minimal

Release 0.6.0 on 2014-03-19

 * Add window decorations, configurable via the theme-object
 * The tag attributes curframe_windex and curframe_wcount have been removed, they are replaced by the more general attributes frames.focus.windex frames.focus.wcount.
 * new example script: scratchpad.sh
 * if swap_monitors_to_get_tag is set to 0, then focus the other monitor if the desired tag is shown on another monitor instead of doing nothing
 * new split mode: auto
 * new attribute monitors.count indicating the number of monitors
 * new settings object with an attribute for each setting.
 * directional focus for floating clients, i.e. switch between floating windows via focus left|right|up|down. It also raises the freshly focused window.
 * directional monitor focusing
 * new detect_monitors flags: --list -l --no-disjoin while detect_monitors does disjoin_rects on the detected monitors per default.
 * For each client a keymask can be given. A keymask is a regular expression, that is matched against the string representation of a keybinding. If it matches, the keybinding is enabled for this client, otherwise not. The default is an empty keymask ("") that matches all keybindings, so no bindings are masked out by default. A keymask is a client attribute, and can be set by a client rule.
 * add completion to the mousebind command
 * add mouse function call to call commands on mouse button press
 * add setting update_dragged_clients
 * new rule consequence: monitor
 * new command: try
 * new command: silent
