Enable Settings>Focus>Sloppy mouse focus.
I would like to see an option that does the following:
* when a new window is mapped, map it whereever icewm thinks is enough room (already implemented), but do not give it focus
* change the mouse pointer to the "move" icon
* when the mouse pointer now moves, move the window to be under the mouse pointer (still do not give focus)
* when the user clicks to fixate the new window's position, give/don't give (should be another option) focus to the new window. Keyboard input should not be considered for fixating the position.
Background: I like to move windows to a good spot when they are initially mapped (automatic placement is just cumbersome in any desktop environment/window manager when you have a large VirtualSize configured in X.org). Though when typing in a window (mailer, instant messaging, etc.), a new window should not steal the current focus.
Undeprecate the following warnings (perhaps they just got new names):
IceWM: Warning: Deprecated option: manualPlacement == true
IceWM: Warning: Deprecated option: strongPointerFocus == true
