    Release Notes: This is a distribution improvement release. The only changes are that Python shebangs have been reverted to Python2, which makes the Python scripts compatible with Python2 >= 2.5 (tested with python-2.5, 2.6, and 2.7), and the Copying file is no longer installed, making it easier for GNU/Linux distributions to package Fvwm-Crystal.
