wmMand 1.3.2 released again

There was a minor problem with the initial release of version 1.3.2 -- the version string will show as "1.3.1-rc2" rather than "1.3.2". No need to get the newer one if you have one of these versions, that's the only difference.

wmMand 1.3.2 released

The primary difference in this release is the focus handling - now the keyboard
isn't explicitly grabbed whenever the pointer is inside the small window, and
unhandled key presses are passed on (so multimedia keys work, for example).

Also on the advice of a trusted source, I have added error trapping for malloc
calls.

Minor issue of the pointer "flashing" when zooming with the keyboard has also
been fixed.

wmMand 1.3.1 released

wmMand 1.3.1 has been released! The pointer is now reliably confined to the small window when autozooming, the mouse is hidden during keypresses, and the option of using xv instead of display for the large image has been added. Also the current fractal may be viewed within XaoS. Enjoy!

wmMand v. 1.3 released: with autozoom!

Finally, wmMand has mouse-controlled autozooming!

I've tested it in various window managers / desktop environments, and although the DEs don't allow the pointer to be grabbed it can make using wmMand much nicer. Have fun!
