Some invalid GNOME hints are rejected. A loop when xterm changes its "active icon" size was fixed. The configure script can now cope with four-part version numbers when detecting some libraries. Security fixes were made in fvwm-menu-directory and FvwmCommand.

Release Notes: An error message that occurred when using incorrect --with-SOME-library arguments was fixed along with compilation problems with QNX 4.25. The "Visible" condition no longer selects windows on different desks. Sending M_NEW_PAGE packets to modules was fixed for cases where the page did not change. With StartsOnPage, SkipMapping, and UsePPosition styles, windows that request a specific position are still placed on the given page. It is now possible to suppress titles in menus created by fvwm-menu-directory. A new --disable-gtk configure switch was added. FvwmGtk.1 is not installed if FvwmGtk is not built. Support for BBC headlines was added to fvwm-menu-headlines.

Release Notes: All single letter variables are deprecated, and multiletter variables are provided. The NoWarp menu position hint option works with root menus too. WindowListFunc is executed within a window context, so a prefix "WindowId $0" is no longer needed in its definition, and it is advised to remove it from user configs. FvwmEvent executes all window related events within a window context, so PassId is not needed anymore, and all prefixes "WindowId $0" may be removed from user event handlers.

Release Notes: A fix was made for gmplayer when launched by fvwm. stdin is closed on exec so the exec'd process knows it is not running interactively. Windows using the WindowListSkip style do not appear in the FvwmTaskBar at random. Memory leaks were fixed in the ChangeIcon, ChangeForeColor, and ChangeBackColor FvwmScript options. A core dump was fixed in the parsing of FvwmAuto arguments. A fix was made for bad calculation of icon picture size when the application specifies it explicitly. The option ShowOnlyIcons now works as described in the FvwmIconMan man page. It was accidentally named ShowOnlyIconic before.

Release Notes: This is a bugfix release for all earlier 2.4.x versions. It hopefully fixes the remaining stacking problems that appeared in 2.4.9. Furthermore, the Key command works again as it used to before 2.4.13.
