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.
