Screenshot

Notion is a tiling tabbed window manager for X. This means the screen can be freely divided into tiles that contain the client windows. Multiple client windows can occupy the same tile; in that case they will be tabbed, much like browser tabs. This way, windows will not overlap and it becomes easier to manage your screen real estate. Its functionality can be configured and even extended with Lua scripts. Various scripts are available, such as for NetWM features and multihead support.

Release Notes: This is the first release of Notion after the fork of Ion3. The authors have tried not to introduce any regressions with respect to Ion3. The most prominent changes are the addition of a "lazy_resize" winprop option for applications which resize slowly, various EMWH (aka NetWM)-related features and fixes, fixes in tab width calculation, various improvements in multihead support (mod_xinerama and mod_xrandr), introduction of mod_xkbevents, and various cleanups to the build system, including improved autodetection of lua.

Screenshot

etm is an acronym for Event and Task Manager. It provides a simple, intuitive format for using plain text files to store event, task, and other data items, a command line interface for viewing stored information in a variety of convenient ways, and a cross-platform, PyQt-based GUI for creating and modifying items as well as viewing them. Displayed items can be grouped by date, context, keyword, or project and can be filtered in various ways. A display of busy and free times is also supported, as is a ledger view of time spent that is suitable for client billing. Alarms are supported for events and repetition for both events and tasks in a powerful and flexible manner.

Release Notes: This release fixes a bug in which begin_date would default to the date at which etm was started instead of the current date. It changes the documentation to include the omit switch 'd' for all day events. It replaces hours_tenths in etmrc with file_totals_fmt and display_totals_fmt. Both belong to [1,2,3] where 1) use hours and tenths, 2) use hours and minutes, and 3) use minutes. Use of the i_calendar module has been replaced with the vobject module. When jumping to a date in the GUI, this version will leave existing option settings other than the begin date unchanged.
