    Release Notes: Several fixes were made so that WMApp will compile with modern, stricter C++ compilers. Two new, very small fonts are now available. There are also new set/getuserdata() members of the WMApp and WMWidget classes that can be used to store arbitrary data to be used within callback functions.

      Release Notes: The call to usleep() has been replaced with nanosleep() so compilation succeeds on recent Linux distributions. An offset in the mouse click position on a vertical WMSlider widget has been fixed, as well as a bug in color gradient drawing. The "-w" option to put a dockapp in the withdrawn (dockable) state has been made the default.

        Release Notes: Elliptical and other shaped widgets are now drawn correctly when inside a non-transparent frame. The WMCanvas::copy_buffer() method was removed due to redundancy; use display() instead. Other minor cosmetic changes and bugfixes were also made.

          Release Notes: An elliptical base class was introduced, allowing the creation of rounded widgets. Newly included is a small example game, WMAirTrafficControl, showing off this and other features of the library. More basic infrastructure classes (Color, WMClickable) were added. And the setaspectratios() function may now be omitted if all of a frame's child widgets should be the same size.

            Release Notes: New drawing functions were added for the WMCanvas widget, as well as the ability to switch between buffered and unbuffered drawing modes. Code for drawing images was better optimized to reduce X resource usage. The source code was broken up into smaller pieces for better modularity.
