IControl interprets signals from Creative's RM-900 remote control and the accompanying IR LiveDrive! receiver unit. It is currently capable of sending input to various programs (including XMMS, Xine, XawTV, and XScreensaver), as well as circulating window stacking order (sending windows to the background), and changing input focus. It is completely configurable, allowing the user to map any key to any action the daemon supports. Support for other remote controls is planned.

Release Notes: Added support for a default configuration file in a user's home directory (~/.icontrol/icontrol.conf), converted the project to CVS, added support for the NumLock modifier (which means that programs which require keypad input will read numbers rather than 'Home', 'PageUp', etc.), and made various bugfixes and minor updates.
