    Release Notes: This release adds new options to control the position of the feedback window and the display duration of error messages.

    •  20 Mar 2011 13:01

      Release Notes: This release fixes a bug that caused xchainkeys to leave the keyboard grabbed if a :wait action was invoked from a top-level binding.

      •  12 Mar 2011 10:49

        Release Notes: This release adds a new action called :wait that executes commands synchronously while releasing xchainkey's keyboard grab beforehand. This action can be used to run programs that need to grab the keyboard themselves.

          Release Notes: This release adds the ability to bind a key by specifying a numeric keycode. This allows you to bind a physical key regardless of the current keyboard layout.
