window manager improved 2

wmii is the next generation of wmi. It is a highly customizable keyboard-and-mouse-driven X11 window manager that supports conventional, tabbed, and tiled window management with low memory usage and vi-like user interaction. Due to a complete rewrite, it is highly modularized and uses a new configuration and inter-process communication interface, which is oriented on the 9p protocol of the Plan9 operating system.

            Release Notes: The new window management consists of a column layout. The classic workspace (page) paradigm of previous versions or other window managers has been replaced with a new tagging approach. The new virtual filesystem can be accessed using a 9P-compliant client. The dependency on Plan 9 (9base) tools has been dropped. The separation of wmiibar, wmiikeys, and the wmiifs file-service multiplexer into separate processes in earlier versions has been removed, which increased the overall performance drastically and reduced a lot of code overhead.
