RSS All releases of xbindkeys

  •  05 Jan 2014 15:36

Release Notes: This release does not grab a keysym not mapped on the keyboard and prevents an AnyKey grab.

  •  14 Mar 2011 00:05

Release Notes: This version adds Guile 2.0 support and replaces some deprecated functions.

  •  06 Dec 2010 21:53

Release Notes: This release fixes a memory fault when using it with libX11-1.4.0.

  •  24 Jan 2009 20:24

Release Notes: A listen loop was added in the main loop. This fixes a bug where, in the previous version, a keypress was needed to reload the configuration file after a keybinding change. Now one can edit the configuration file and keybindings are automatically updated after each save.

  •  18 Apr 2007 19:04

Release Notes: Correction of typos in the man page. An emphasis is made on the documentation about the Guile/Scheme configuration file (the preferred way for non-trivial configuration, and far more powerful than the default configuration file).

  •  03 Apr 2007 14:03

Release Notes: Better Guile configuration with autotools. Some minor compilation warnings have been fixed.

  •  19 Jan 2007 17:12

Release Notes: This version enables full access to the xbindkeys internal from the Guile scheme configuration file. A grabbed key can start a shell command or run a scheme function. This enables you to do more powerful things inside xbindkeys without the need for an external shell script (like double click, timed double click, or key combinations).

  •  04 Jan 2007 14:23

Release Notes: A minor change in xbindkeys.spec. A small English correction in warnings. Configuration files are reloaded on the fly when they have changed, so there is no more need to send a HUP signal to reload them. Minor guile bugfixes.

  •  28 May 2006 00:29

Release Notes: A bug under Solaris was fixed. This bug caused an XBindKeys built with -DFORK_FLAG=1 to fail to wait for the processes it spawns, leaving lots of defunct processes.

  •  04 May 2005 13:53

Release Notes: Changes to grab keys in all display screens and not only in the default root window (Xinerama suport). A bugfix for the Guile support in
