Description :
JWM is a window manager for the X11 Window System. It's written in C and uses
only Xlib at a minimum. The following libraries can also be used if available:

* libXext for the shape/render extension
* libXmu for drawing rounded windows (shape extension also needed)
* libXinerama for Xinerama support
* libXpm for XPM backgrounds and icons
* libjpeg for JPEG backgrounds and icons
* libpng for PNG backgrounds and icons
* libRSVG and Cairo for SVG backgrounds and icons
* libxft for antialiased and true type fonts
* libfribidi for right-to-left language support

JWM supports MWM and Extended Window Manager Hints (EWMH).

Note that Fedora package is built with all supported features enabled.

* Improved the performance of moving/resizing windows.
* Made it possible to switch desktops immediately while dragging a window if mod1 is pressed (issue #12).
* Fixed an issue with windows mapping behind other windows (issue #110).
* Fixed an issue where JWM would attempt to process the last X event multiple times before exiting or restarting.
