Oops. We messed up! The 0.5.2 release had X debugging information turned ON. This caused mrxvt to request X events to be processed synchronously, and slowed things down considerably. We now released a patch to fix this. Please patch the source! (Note -- even with debugging information turned on, mrxvt-0.5.2 outperformed 05.1 in most situations. Now it outperforms 0.5.1 in all situations!)
This is a MAJOR bugfix release. As an added bonus, the new release is about 3 times faster, and very busy tabs will not starve others.
Very few new features have been added, and only one or two options have changed from 0.5.1
We strongly recommend that all 0.5.x users upgrade to 0.5.2.
This release has significantly improved performance and further reduced resource usage even though mrxvt's footprint was already very small. New features include but is not limited to: better and intelligent tabbar apperance, full screen mode, new powerful macros (replacing hotkeys), XRender alphablending, popup menus, etc. Numerious bugs have been fixed as well. Please test it out and send us bug reports, comments, suggestions, and of course patchs.... read more
