Release Notes: newsbeuter and liferea support were added and some small bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release fixes a small build problem with asound. If version 1.3 compiled successfully and works well, you don't need to update.
Release Notes: A simple (postfix) calculator was added. An automatically generated skeleton-config was added. It's possible to run an external program and read its stdout and use it.
Release Notes: Users can create their own message format so that awesome-status can send awesome2- and awesome3-compatible messages. The program checks the syntax of the config file and doesn't segfault when it is incorrect.
Release Notes: Small bugs were fixed. New features include an mbox, CPU nice, and system monitors. Volume information is acquired by using alsa-lib, so you don't need /proc/asound-files, the content of which is hardware-specific. Code cleanup was done. Changes were made to the configuration file format.
