Release Notes: There are no original new features this time; the focus has been given to rendering. Thus the manager should look faster and have more 'eye candy'.
Release Notes: Dynamic menus based on the Radix Tree algorithm were introduced. A theme engine with rendering objects support was built. Text alignments are considered. A welcome message is displayed when no customized configuration is found. Client layouts can be defined for random or optimized windows placements. The SIGUSR1 signal is handled to restart and SIGUSR2 is handled to reload the current theme. XRender Xorg extension rendering is supported. All exposed areas are stacked to optimize updates when receiving X events.
Release Notes: In this release, all files found in ~/.firebox/start/ are run at startup. A constraint system was added. Desktops can now be flipped using mouse motion. Resistance against windows or the screen is computed. A manual page was added. The program was internationalized using Gettext, and four more atoms from the ICCCM/EWMH specifications are now handled.
