Karmen 0.11 released!

The Lower button is gone, and the Delete button has moved. A bit hard to get used to, but I have learnt to live with it after a couple of weeks. I hope you can too. As always: feedback is very welcome! Enjoy!

New Poll Available!

Thanks to all of you who participated in the poll about the Lower button! The result was extremely even: 51 percent found the Lower button useful, 49 percent did not.

The reason for the question was that I was thinking about removing the Lower button. I personally find it useful now and then, but I'm not sure if it deserves to be a button. The poll results made it even harder for me to decide. Please mail your opinion to the mailing list, or to me at veenhuizen(at)users(dot)sourceforge(dot)net.... read more

Karmen 0.9 released!

Time for another release. Here are the release notes:

Version 0.9 of the Karmen window manager contains some important bug fixes, most notably a fix for the configure request bug that caused XMMS and MPlayer (and possibly others) to misbehave. There are also improvements for transient windows and window groups. See the change log (or NEWS file) for further details.

Have a nice day!

Take the poll! Help Karmen improve!

I don't get too much feedback so I decided to try with a poll. Visit the Karmen home page at http://karmen.sourceforge.net/ and take the poll! If all goes well I will put up similar polls regularly.

Thanks in advance!

Please send feedback

I hope you liked the new release of Karmen. See the manual page and NEWS file to find out about new features and changes since the last version. And *please* send feedback! I'm sure there's something you didn't like, and there might even be some feature that you really like and don't want me to change.

New release Real Soon Now

If you think Karmen development has stopped, you're wrong! The truth is I have been hacking quite a lot lately, so much that I haven't dared to make a release. However, things are stabilizing now and I plan to make a new release sometime at the end of this week. Watch out!

I have created a sourceforge project for my window manager, Karmen. I will import the sources to Subversion as soon as possible, and also release a snapshot of the current sources. I posted a screen shot to give an idea of what it looks like.
