Re: Great Start
still PWM was truly lightweight, no dependencies, no nothing.
ION depends on lua needs much more "configuration effort".
PWM2 depends on ion - which makes it even more
What i had liked most on pwm was it's simplicity.
PLEASE - make new releases of original PWM.
(you can see it is still rather high rated on freshmeat...)

No, it was not abandoned. There hasn't been any new relases in quite a long time but lately there's been some work done on a new version. Have a look at the PWM web page for details.

Re: Great Start
It's a shame that PWM's development was abandoned.
I think that the new Ion is not as good as PWM.
Today many of PWM's ideas are imlemented in new WM's,
like fluxbox and pekwm.
But the original one - could have been the best, if it was still
under development + maintenance.... :(

Great Start
I am impressed with the minimal size, stability, and functionality of pwm! After searching windowmanagers for months, I must say this one is keeping me the most happy right now. It has what I want most: Mod1 clicking anywhere in the client to move and resize, full keyboard support, and multi-window grouping. Only one problem have I spotted so far, if you try to do too much editing in the pwm.conf file you can get kinda screwed up. window borders and deco go all black/white ect.
