linux default iconSawfish Publisher's description

Sawfish is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based scripting language.

Sawfish is an extensible window manager using a Lisp-based scripting language. Its policy is very minimal compared to most window managers. Its aim is simply to manage windows in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. All high-level WM functions are implemented in Lisp for future extensibility or redefinition.

These are some of the features that set Sawfish apart from other window managers:

* Powerful key-binding: Virtually every function provided by Sawfish can be bound to keys (or mouse buttons).
* Event hooking: For many events (moving windows etc.) you can customize the way Sawfish will respond.
* Window matching: When windows are created you can match them to a set of rules and automatically perform actions on them.
* Flexible theming: Sawfish allows for very different themes to be created and a variety of third-party themes are readily available.

What's New in This Release:

В· More robustness for get-window-by-* functions.
В· Fixes all issues in higher-level functions, like failing jump-or-exec.
В· Doing cursor-warping to a shaded window now warps to the correct position.
В· Manager selection handling has been fixed.
В· Failing to generate an application menu, while parsing incorrect .desktop files, has been fixed.
В· In EdgeActions, HotSpot, HotMove, and EdgeFlip are prevented from being invoked multiple times a time.
В· This release fixes Debian packaging scripts and makes compilation with makepp instead of GNU make work.
