Release Notes: Windows are restored on the correct Viewport. This release prevents crashing of sawfish under heavy load and fast window destruction. It prevents window crashing (at least the part where sawfish is at fault). Thanks to librep 0.90.2+, all UTF-8 issues are gone. Thanks to rep-gtk 0.90.0+, SawfishConfig (ex SawfishUI) has begun to refresh and un-deprecate. There is a set of new window-matchers and an improved window-matching architecture.
