72 * Fix for showing Openbox menus with multiple monitors, don't restrict them
73 to the monitor where the mouse is.
74 * Fixed bug #4023 (Allow the user to have multiple keys which perform the
75 same function in Openbox menus/move/resize. E.g. two keys which are
76 both bound to Escape.

79 window.
80 * Add _OB_ROLE, _OB_NAME, and _OB_CLASS hints on each window that show the

83 * Improve Openbox interoperability with gnome-session >= 2.24.
84 * Fixed bug #4040 (Remove desktop hints set by gdm in the openbox-session

87 * Fix a bug in xdg-autostart preventing some .desktop files from working.
88 * Show the desktop pager popup on the primary monitor instead of on all

114 * Fixed bug #4344 where borders were given to windows that should not have

116 * Merge the SessionLogout and Exit actions. They now test if connected to a

118 * Further tweaks to the _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message handling. Use the same
119 logic for focus-stealing as is used when mapping a new window.
120 * Don't go out of our way any more to prevent focus from moving while the
121 keyboard is grabbed.
122 * Fix openbox-gnome-session when using gnome-session > 2.22.
123
1243.4.8-rc2:
125 * Updated translations: Italian, Croatian, Ukrainian.
126 * When resizing a window while focus cycling with bar=no, the bar no longer
127 reappears.
128 * Correctly handle shaped windows using the ShapeInput kind, this is used
129 by many composited apps to pass through clicks in their transparent areas.
130 * Fix the <monitor> per-app setting.
131 * Avoid using anonymous unions.
132 * Windows that had their decorations removed by per-app settings were still
133 placed as if they still had their decorations.
134 * Fix event handling not to ignore events on a window when they have an unmap
135 event in the queue, if that unmap event doesn't cause the window to be
136 unmanaged.
137 * Show the desktop switch on every monitor in xinerama.
138 * Fix interpretation of struts in xinerama where the screens have different
139 sizes.
140 * Add "next" and "prev" as possible <monitor> targets in the moveto and
141 resizeto actions.
142 * Allow escaping the _ used to mark the shortcut character in menu labels.
143 You can now change the (first) _ in a label to __, this will be displayed
144 as a single underscore. The rest of the _ in the string will be unaffected,
145 so only double the first one.
146 * Only replace ~ with the home directory when it is preceded by whitespace or
147 is at the start of the string, and when it is followed by a space, slash, or
148 the end of the string. This is implemented with GRegex, and so the required
149 glib version has been bumped to 2.14.
150 * Some other small fixes.
151
1523.4.8-rc1:
153 * Updated translations: Basque, Catalan, Turkish, Italian, Spanish, Russian.
154 * New translations: Danish, Turkish, Lithuanian.
155 * Set the _MOTIF_WM_INFO atom so urxvt uses motif hints for borderless mode.
156 * Properly escape the xml used in session files.
157 * Correct a 64-bit issue related to comparing timestamps.
158 * There is a sneaky sentence right at the end of a big paragraph in the
159 wm-spec document that says windows mapping with _NET_WM_USER_TIME=0 should
160 not be focused initially, honor this request.
161 * When moving a window to another desktop with following on, bring the
162 window's helper windows (for example gimp image windows with the toolbox
163 set to utility window).
164 * Change the _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW messages again, if they originate from the
165 app and the window is on another desktop, just set the demands_attention
166 flag. If the event came from the user (ie pager/panel), then the window
167 is still moved to the current desktop.
168
1693.4.7.2:
170 * The system I used to generate the dist tarball didn't have the
171 docbook-to-man command so the manpages were empty.
172
1733.4.7.1:
174 * Not to be outdone by the cairo team, I introduced a bug in the last release
175 which made resizing not give any feedback. This is now fixed.
176
1773.4.7:
178 * Fully updated Czech, Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, German,
179 French, Hungarian, Norwegian, Vietnamese, Dutch, Swedish, Finnish,
180 Brazilian Portuguese, Japanese and Portuguese translations
181 * Partially updated Spanish translation
182 * Add an example of the "force" option for the per-app placement options to
183 the default rc.xml file
184 * Add a new xdg-autostart script. This will eventually end up in the PyXDG
185 distribution hopefully, but it is included in Openbox for now. This script
186 runs things based on the freedesktop.org autostart specification. You can
187 have it run GNOME, KDE, ROX, or XFCE specific things if you want. The
188 new default system-wide autostart.sh script runs it automatically
189 * Update the default menu.xml to include a lot of common apps
190 * Fix white font shadows (negative shadowtint)
191 * Update the autostart.sh to find gnome-settings-daemon correctly, as the
192 GNOME people have moved it to libexec
193 * Fix focus possibly getting stolen when using the Focus action
194 * Drastically speed up rendering of Vertical and SplitVertical gradients
195 * Speed improvements also for Horizonal and Pyramid gradients
196 * Add new theme options, menu.overlap.x and menu.overlap.y options, that let
197 you independently control the horizontal and vertical position of submenus
198 * Change _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW messages to not change the current desktop, but
199 to bring the window to the current desktop instead. This is the industry
200 standard policy
201 * Use the pretty new openbox.png icon as the default window icon
202 * Allow matching per-application rules to windows by their window type
203 (normal, dialog, splash, etc). The default rc.xml has more details
204 * Add new Openbox-themed prompt windows. Use these prompt windows to ask
205 before killing off windows that aren't responding. This also means we
206 don't need to ping every window constantly forever
207 * Add a new <prompt> option to the Execute action. If this is set to a
208 string, a dialog will be shown with that string in it and "yes"/"no"
209 buttons. The command to be executed will only be run if the user selects
210 "yes" in the dialog
211 * Add a new <prompt> option to the Exit action, which is a boolean (not a
212 string). When true, Openbox will show a dialog confirming if you want to
213 exit. The default is to show the prompt
214 * Reduce Openbox's memory footprint and speed up rendering through the use
215 of a new icon cache, so that Openbox only needs to keep 1 copy of an icon
216 when 100 different windows share it
217 * Make Openbox menus have the "menu type" hint for compositors to see and use
218 * Fix the MoveResizeTo action for negative coords (opposite edges)
219 * Fix key bindings getting lost if multiple bindings at the same level could
220 not be translated (Fixes VMWare causing Openbox keybindings to stop
221 working)
222 * Fix the resize popup box for terminal windows with a base size of 0 (show
223 the right size values for urxvt terminals)
224 * Fix some off-by-one bugs with the edge growing/shrinking code
225 * Add new theme options for menu line separators: menu.separator.color,
226 menu.separator.width, menu.separator.padding.width,
227 menu.separator.padding.height
228 * Add xfce-mcs-manager to the default autostart.sh, and run it automatically
229 when gnome-settings-daemon is not present to have GTK apps inherit settings
230 from the XFCE configuration tools
231 * Make the send-to-desktop menu in the client-menu indicate which is the current
232 desktop for omnipresent windows, and don't close it if just toggling
233 omni-presence when ctrl-clicking
234 * Add a new SessionLogout action that logs out through the session manager,
235 when running Openbox within a session manager such as within an
236 GNOME/Openbox or KDE/Openbox session. The action includes a <prompt>
237 option which is similar to the Exit action's
238 * Add a new gdm-control command that lets you control gdm from within an X
239 session. The gdm-control lets you change GDM's behaviour for when you end
240 the current session. For instance, you can tell GDM to reboot, and
241 then immediately log out of the current session, and the computer will be
242 rebooted
243 * Show an information dialog when an error occurs for Openbox, such as when
244 the Execute action fails or when XML syntax errors are present in the
245 configuration files
246 * When making a window very narrow, don't draw buttons to the right of the title
247 on top of the ones on its left.
248
2493.4.6.1:
250 * Updated Clearlooks theme
251 * Add the force="yes/no" option for the per-app settings' <position> tag
252 * Raise and focus modal children and their direct parents together, improved
253 usability with direct modal transient windows
254 * Fix crash when using <raise> for NextWindow and there are no windows
255 to move focus to
256 * Add the <manageDesktops> option in the rc.xml <menu> section, which toggles
257 the "Manage Desktops" section appearing in the combined-client-list-menu
258 * Fix for menu headers showing the wrong text
259 * Fix for the <focusLast> behavior
260 * Treat modal direct children as one window with their parent consistently
261
2623.4.6:
263 * Added Basque translation
264 * Updated French, Vietnamese German, Simplified Chinese, Russian, Portuguese,
265 Brasilian Portuguese, Norwegian, and Finnish translations
266 * New Clearlooks theme, updated by David Barr
267 * Updated the previous Clearlooks theme, and renamed it to Clearlooks-3.4
268 * Allow dialog type windows to go fullscreen (Fixes Kpdf)
269 * Remove the extraneous top border for undecorated windows while maximized
270 * Fixes for keyboard modifiers (Alt-tab dialog getting stuck on screen for
271 some users)
272 * Automatically catch changes to the keyboard map and reconfigure the key
273 bindings on the fly
274 * Fix focus moving incorrectly sometimes with focus under mouse enabled
275 * Make default configuration focus the desktop when you right click
276 * Add the <bar> and <raise> options for all window cycling actions, allowing
277 you to have your target window temporarily raised above all others, and to
278 turn the focus target indicator bar off
279 * Improve the LastDesktop action to not remember desktops you skipped across
280 * Ignore mouse clicks that are made on override-redirect (unmanaged) windows
281 * When opening a menu with a key binding, don't use the key binding to run
282 something in the menu
283 * Add a <monitor> option for window placement, which gives you the option
284 to place new windows on the active monitor, or the monitor where the mouse
285 is, instead of on any monitor (for xinerama multihead setups)
286 * Add options for placing the window move/resize coordinate popup window in
287 a fixed position on screen, rather than relative to the window being
288 moved or resized
289 * Prevent the dock from auto-hiding completely offscreen if the theme has
290 no borders for it
291 * New icon
292 * Fix race condition when running things that want to grab the keyboard
293 (e.g. gnome-panel-control --main-menu)
294 * When dialog windows ask to not appear in the taskbar, still give them focus
295 in normal ways (fixes new GNOME session logout dialogs)
296 * Fix bug with resizing corners on certain parts of the window frame
297 * Ping applications to tell when they are running or have become frozen.
298 Show a [Not Responding] message in the title bar of windows which are
299 frozen.
300 * When closing a window which is [Not Responding], kill the window's process
301 if it is running on the same machine as Openbox. Otherwise, just
302 disconnect
303 the window from the X display. A second attempt to close a [Not
304 Responding]
305 window will kill it forcefully (kill -9).
306 * Fixes for internal timers
307 * Add a <wmclass> option for the execute action's startup-notification. This
308 lets you tell Openbox that the application will map a window with the
309 specified class - for applications that do not support startup-notification
310 natively.
311 * Fix for empty dock taking up space onscreen after a reconfigure
312 * Reduce Openbox's additional memory footprint per-window and per-menu
313 * Faster horizontal gradient rendering
314 * Don't deiconify windows that aren't allowed to be directly iconified on
315 restart (eg toolbars), as they can be iconified by other means
316 * Improve support for fullscreen windows in xinerama (TwinView) and
317 multiple-screen setups
318 * Add a --config-file command line option, to specify an alternate
319 configuration file path
320
3213.4.5:
322 * Added Hungarian translation
323 * Updated Finnish, Russian, German and French translations
324 * Fixed some very minor memory leaks
325 * Hide the desktop popup when showing the focus popup
326 * Fix a crash when trying to access the More... menu of
327 client-list-combined-menu
328 * Fix the coordinate popup only showing up on the first monitor in xinerama
329 * Add --exit to exit the currently running openbox instance
330
3313.4.4:
332 * Updated Traditional Chinese translation
333 * Updated Norwegian translation
334 * Fix for MoveToEdge skipping edges sometimes
335 * Let you specify the vertical and horizontal padding independently in themes
336 * Fix so that if you select an omnipresent window on another desktop in the
337 client list menus, it will go to that desktop
338 * Make the GrowToEdge action shrink once there is no more room to grow,
339 similar to in 3.4.2, but shrinking to edges as well
340 * Move the Send To and Layers submenus to the top of the client menu
341 * Fix race causing omnipresent windows to lose focus when switching desktops
342 very quickly
343 * Don't focus new windows on other desktops if they aren't related to the
344 currently focused window

348 annoying
349 * Revert a small change in 3.4.3 that caused windows to be placed funny in
350 Smart placement when there was a dock or something on the side of the
351 screen
352 * Show a notification when switching desktops
353 * Fix for delayed focus-follows-mouse interrupting move/resize or menus
354 * Make screen edge warp keep warping without having the move the mouse 1
355 pixel
356 * Fix for resizing terminals in the top/left sides getting a little confused
357 * Fix to keep oldschool (Non-EWMH) fullscreen windows from being moved and
358 resized inside of the struts (Fixes Acroread)
359 * Accept the <command> option for the Restart command, similar to the Execute
360 action
361 * Don't make clicking on dock apps sometimes act like clicking on the root
362 window (Don't propogate button events up)
363 * Fix a bug introduced in 3.4.3 which caused the Windows key as a modifier
364 for bindings to not work properly
365 * Let windows skip across monitors in a Xinerama setup when using MoveToEdge
366 or Shift-arrow in an interactive move
367 * Make move and resize take the dock into account for resistance
368 * Raise new windows when it makes sense, when they aren't being focused
369 * Change default config to use click events for mouse wheel bindings instead
370 of presses
371
3723.4.3:
373 * Add Ukrainian translation
374 * Updated translations:
375 - Japanese, Dutch, Polish, Italian, Estonian, German, Portuguese,
376 Vietnamese, Finnish, Czech, Arabic, Spanish, Swedish, French
377 * Improve focus fallback - don't fallback to windows you can't focus cycle
378 (Alt-Tab) to
379 * Don't show the client border for undecorated windows when keepBorder is on,
380 just the outer border
381 * Some improvements in the smart placement to help it find a place more
382 often. This needs more work still.
383 * Don't focus windows that appear under the mouse in mouse-focus mode unless
384 underMouse is enabled
385 * Don't move focus when the window under the pointer iconifies unless
386 underMouse is enabled
387 * Respect min/max window sizes when a window is fullscreened or maximized.
388 This fixes problems experienced with maximizing vnc windows
389 * Don't XUngrabKeyboard unless we need to
390 * Correct calculations for the menu header width, so that they are not
391 ellisized unnecessarily
392 * Advanced support for partial struts. When you maximize a window it will
393 now only use the struts it needs to. This can greatly improve
394 xinerama functionality.
395 * Fixes for how the dock is placed in certain positions on screen (off by 1
396 errors)
397 * New default bindings:
398 - don't unshade when clicking on the titlebar
399 - raise when unshading with the scrollwheel
400 - lower when shading with the scrollwheel
401 * Don't show the top resize area in the titlebar when a window is shaded

407 the titlebar.
408 * Don't resist against desklet windows (below layer + skip taskbar)
409 * New actions for dynamically adjusting your desktop workspaces:
410 - AddDesktopLast, RemoveDesktopLast
411 - AddDesktopCurrent, RemoveDestopCurrent
412 * New <center> option for smart placement (default is on)
413 * Fix MoveToCenter in Xinerama (TwinView) setups
414 * Let you lower a window without lowering its children or siblings
415 * Don't set the default Openbox icon on child windows, let them inherit the
416 icon from their parents
417 * Fix Onyx themes - fade out disabled buttons
418 * Don't auto-resize windows to fit on screen if they are UserSpecified
419 Size or Position
420 * Don't activate windows which raise themselves anymore. It was a nice
421 thought, but it caused too much problems
422 * Rewrite of the actions subsystem
423 * Removed deprecated actions:
424 - ShowDesktop, UnshowDesktop (Use ToggleShowDesktop)
425 - ResizeRelativeVert, ResizeRelativeHorz (Use ResizeRelative)
426 * Combined the MoveFromEdge* actions with MoveToEdge* actions, and removed
427 the MoveFromEdge* action names.
428 * Switch desktops when moving a window and you drag it to the edge of the
429 screen (added the <screenEdgeWarpTime> option for this)
430 * Add actions to add/remove the last desktop in the client list menus
431 * Use startup notification when launching ObConf in the default root menu
432 * Remove the desktop switching dialog, as it confuses people and they don't
433 know how to turn it off to switch desktops instantly. Some other
434 incarnation may return in the future.
435 * Add optional <finalactions> option for NextWindow, PreviousWindow,
436 DirectionalFocus*, and DirectionalTarget* actions
437 * Don't focus new helper windows unless they are alone in their group. This
438 fixes gucharmap
439 * Fancy keyboard window moving:
440 - Shift-arrow will move the window to the next edge
441 - Control-arrow will move the window by only 1 pixel
442 - Arrow will move the window by a larger number of pixels
443 * Fancy keyboard window resizing:
444 - The first arrow will choose an edge to resize (then you can grow or
445 shrink the window on that edge)
446 - Hitting an arrow perpendicular to your selected edge will choose a
447 different edge to resize
448 - Shift-arrow will grow/shrink the window to the next edge
449 - Control arrow will grow/shrink the window by only 1 pixel
450 - Arrow will grow/shrink the window by a larger number of pixel
451 * Timeout when synchronously resizing a window so you can still resize busy
452 or dead application windows
453 * Let you specify keyboard shortcuts in your root menus with _. Such as
454 label="XTe_rm" would make 'r' the shortcut key.
455 * Fixes for placing windows with per-app settings:
456 - you can now place windows relative to any edge of the screen instead of
457 only the top left. (-0 uses the far edge, +0 uses the near edge. You can
458 use --0 and +-0 to specify negative numbers.)
459 - fix bug with windows being placed far off-screen occasionally
460 - allow you to place windows partially outside of the screen
461 - let per-app settings override program-specified positions (but not if it
462 is user-specified)
463 * Add user-specified margins to the configuration file
464 * Fix for transient windows in groups with transient windows of the group
465 transients. That wasn't supposed to be legible. i.e. 2 group transients
466 and 1 direct transient for one of the group transients.
467 * Don't include child/parent windows in tests for being occluded or occluding
468 other windows, since you can't raise/lower above/below them. This fixes
469 the raiselower action for windows which have children.
470 * Reduce the size of the middle gradient in splitvertical gradients. This
471 makes the split harder than it was in 3.4.2
472 * Don't include debian/ dir in releases
473 * Add resize bindings for the edges to the default hardcoded bindings
474 * Fix focus cycle indicator positioning for some windows (i.e. OpenOffice)

476 you move a window to any edge of any screen.
477 * Make actions that look for edges include the dock's edges (e.g. MoveToEdge)
478 * New preferred option for the Execute action is <command> instead of
479 <execute> but the old one will still work.
480 * Fix for moving windows partially offsceen causing them to jump far away
481 * Fix for windows which are not on any monitor, to keep them on screen
482 partically too
483 * Require libstartupnotification 0.8 in configure (we use stuff that was not
484 around in some earlier versions)
485 * Grab the server when mapping windows to avoid race conditions in other
486 programs (getting MapNotify before you are visible)
487 * Handle case gracefully when ConfigureRequent for restacking specifies
488 a siblig which we aren't managing
489 * Use KeyRelease to run things from Openbox menus, so that the release
490 does not go to the focused window (causing the new window to not get
491 focus)
492 * Add new actions for controlling window decorations:
493 - Decorate, Undecorate
494 * Fix so that the values for per-app settings are not case sensitive
495 * Fix crash with very small windows
496 * Fix resize resistance for windows with aspect ratio limits

505 like chroot, until you end the interactive action)
506 * Fix for gtk apps trying to get focus - mostly nullify focus stealing
507 prevention (Fixes Tilda)
508 * Send ConfigureNotify always on ConfigureRequest (Previous emacs fix
509 makes this possible now)
510 * Fix RelativeResize action for right/bottom edges
511 * Remove SCIM from the default autostart.sh - it has caused problems with
512 some (buggy) panels, such as pypanel
513 * Fix the titlebar changing to non-focused when iconifying a window with
514 animation
515 * Use the new osd theme hints for the dock, rather than the titlebar hints
516 * Fix rare crash when menu is hidden while browsing it
517 * End move/resize more cleanly when focus moves during a move/resize
518 * Don't focus new windows when browsing a menu or moving/resizing a window,
519 just flash the window instead, so that the menu/move/resize doesn't have to
520 cancel.
521
5223.4.1:
523 * Add Vietnamese translation
524 * Add Japanese translation
525 * Keep new transient windows from not getting focus when any related window
526 has focus already

528 no window has focus anymore, rather than to the last used window
529 * Make on-screen display dialogs (such as the Alt-Tab dialog) appear on the
530 active monitor when using Xinerama (a.k.a. TwinView)

556 * Fix another emacs event storm, don't configure the window when it sets its
557 WM_NORMAL_HINTS unless we have to
558 * Fix for focus cycling to helper windows - Don't count dialogs as a sibling,
559 so they don't stop you
560 * Allow the use of negative numbers in per-app settings position to place a
561 window relative to the right/bottom edges of your monitor (taking the

625 from stealing focus, and allow new windows to get focus when any relative
626 window is focused
627 * Fixes for frame decorations layout
628 * Fixes for forcing window sizes to fit on the screen. Don't resize windows

630 windows. (Fix Rox pinboard mapping across multiple monitors)
631 * Centre window icons when they are not square

655 * When a window has modal children on another desktop and you try to focus
656 it, bring the modal child to the current desktop to focus it instead

686 a direct parent, or if the parents are not all on some other desktop.
687 (Fixes Pidgin and Gimp dialogs appearing on the wrong desktop)
688 * Make windows fit within the available space when they are first created,
689 if they are not user-positioned. (Fix xpdf making itself bigger than the

691 * Don't let child (transient) windows steal focus when the situation is
692 ambiguous

698 * Fix new frame elements being given 0 sizes for very small windows
699 * Send iconified windows to the bottom of the focus order so you can
700 Alt-Shift-Tab to get back what you just iconified. This makes things more

703 * Stop focus flicker when sending windows to a desktop and following them,

732 position wasn't requested by the user (Fix xpdf and others hiding their
733 titlebar under a panel)

735 * Save the desktop layout and names in the session, and restore them on next
736 log in.
737 * The &lt;desktop&gt; section from the configuration file is only used for
738 defaults, and so is only applied at the start of a new log-in. (Use ObConf
739 1.6.2 to change the config file for these options, and have them set
740 immediately, if you don't use a session manager to save them.)
741 * Fix updating and crashing in the old split client list menu
742 * Translate the default desktop names
743 * Update Taiwanese Chinese translation
744 * Less restrictions of behavior based on window type (Let you maximize

772 identifiers, because we can't tell them apart then (Firefox/Thunderbird)
773 * Small fixes to build system to make it more reliable
774 * Fix for what manpage files are distributed in the source code, so they
775 will not be pre-built with the wrong info
776 * Fix pkg-config files for compiling things against Openbox libraries
777
7783.3.990:
779 * Wildcard matching for per-application (per-window) settings. Let you match
780 multiple rules for a window. (Props to Mark Pustjens for code to do this.)
781 * Added startup notification support to the menus and key/mouse bindings
782 with <startupnotify>. It's an option for execute actions.
783 * New combined client menu, accessed with

794 * Using ()'s instead of a line separator to signify iconified windows in the
795 client list menus

802 * Many code paths made significantly faster
803 * Sections of code rewritten to be more reliable, such as session

805 * Handle the X server's clock going backwards, without locking up. Sometimes
806 the server can still lock up though, it is not recommended to do this!
807 * Better handling of window types such as docks, utility windows, tool bar
808 windows. Clicking to focus these windows is done more intelligently. Dock
809 windows no longer get focus when you click them, so that you don't have
810 focus flickering when you use a dock window with a taskbar.
811 * Better language support through Pango, which is now mandatory, and the
812 code for Pango has been greatly improved and optimized.
813 * Support for windows that use true 32-bit transparency
814 * Resize grips (with mouse binding contexts) for the top, left, and right of
815 the window frame
816 * Smarter about keeping windows on the screen without invading user's
817 capabilities
818 * Add MoveFromEdge* actions corresponding to MoveToEdge* but aligns far
819 edges instead of near edges, so if you have two overlapping windows you
820 can easily put them side by side.
821 * Better choice of mouse cursors for startup notification
822 * Focus stealing prevention
823 * Improve window placement across multiple Xinerama monitors

826 * Full support for EWMH 1.4-draft2
827 * Iconify/restore animation !
828 * Improved support for running openbox with multiple screens (non-xinerama)
829 - won't steal focus from other screens, and let you focus a screen by
830 clicking on the desktop (root window).
831 * Support for more cursors through XCursor, means that startup notification
832 can use a pointer+watch cursor if you are using an XCursor theme
833 * Fully maximize terminal windows (and any resized-by-increment window)
834 * Show the hostname of clients running on remote computers in the titlebar

847 are not all restored
848 * Add <allDesktops> option to NextWindow and PreviousWindow. The desktop
849 name will be shown in the focus cycling popup
850 * Dynamically size the window and desktop dialogs. Desktop layouts that
851 aren't horizontal look better in the desktop cycling dialog.
852 * Support for legacy fullscreen applications (that don't use EWMH) such as
853 VLC
854 * Session support for old clients that do not use the session management
855 protocol
856 * Desktop setup is only changed on startup, so as to not overwrite settings
857 from other apps like pagers
858 * Take advantage of ksmserver (KDE Session Manager) features
859 * KDE/Openbox and GNOME/Openbox options for display manager GDM/KDM. Use
860 openbox-gnome-session and openbox-kde-session to run a GNOME or KDE
861 session with Openbox as the window manager.
862 * Titlebar buttons autohide when hiding won't move other buttons (removed
863 the hideDisabled option from config file)
864 * Support user time window hint, which is good for laptops power usage
865 * When legacy windows raise themselves, interpreate as wanting to be
866 activated. Makes Firefox more pleasant.
867 * Don't show handles on windows that cant resize for more extreme visual
868 minimalism
869 * Let you move maximized windows between Xinerama monitors
870 * Improve application awareness of focus, e.g. Kopete and Firefox, so they
871 know when they are or aren't focused, and which window in their
872 application is focused
873 * Improvements in the distributed themes
874 * Add new Clearlooks and Clearlooks-Olive themes by John McKnight
875 * Fonts are no longer loaded from theme. They are loaded from the rc.xml

878 OnScreenDisplay
879 * Distributed theme names have been renamed with Capitalization

881 * menu.border.color (note that globbing might set these properties when
882 you didnt mean to)
883 * window.active.border.color (note that globbing might set these
884 properties when you didnt mean to)
885 * window.inactive.border.color (note that globbing might set these
886 properties when you didnt mean to)
887 * menu.border.width
888 * Guarantee that titlebar buttons are even sized, so even sized icons
889 (button masks) will be centered
890 * Default titlebar button icons (as xbms) installed to /usr/share/doc/openbox
891 * New mouse binding contexts Left, Right, TLCorner, TRCorner and Top. These
892 need bindings in config file to be useful. Also new context Bottom which
893 is synonym for Handle.
894 * W is no longer hard coded to Mod4. It is now a shortcut for Super, which
895 is usually bound to Mod4. xmodmap will show your mapping.

907 * Closed bug #1106 - Openbox resize problems with Beep Media Player and some
908 websites using Mozilla

972
9733.3:
974 * Add a showDelay option for the dock.
975 * Fixed onscreen-keeping code which broke a bit in -rc2.
976 * Fix incorrect handling of window properties on 64 bit arches.
977 * Fix pixelsize being the same as size for pango, now it is correct.
978 * Fix drawing of icons taller than wide, eg gimp.
979 * Add a 'mirrorhorizontal' gradient, like horizontal but mirrored in the
980 center and 'splitvertical' which is like vertical but nonlinear in a fancy
981 way.
982 * Translations for de, hr and zh_TW added.
983 * Add initial per-app settings support.
984 * Fix some outstanding issues with 64-bit support.
985 * Add an optional delay for displaying submenus so you can move the mouse
986 over some entries without flashing each submenu.
987 * Plug some minor memleaks and fix minor bugs.
988 * Changed algorithm for downscaling window icons.
989 * New themes!
990 * Disable support for libstartup-notification by default, it doesn't seem
991 to work well.
992 * Allow disabling of duplicate window numbering by option titleNumber in
993 theme section.
994 * Add moverelative and resizerelative actions.
995 * Option middle for menus that make submenus be centered instead of aligned

999
10003.3-rc2:
1001 * Fixed some typos and errors in rc.xsd
1002 * Add the noStrut option to the dock (to allow maximizing windows over it),
1003 useful when it is not in the above layer.
1004 * Fix transparent terminals not updating when using ToggleDecor.
1005 * Yet more poking at the onscreen-keeping code, should now do the right
1006 thing always.
1007 * Add an option to hide disabled buttons instead of showing them as disabled.
1008 * Hopefully fixed all the remaining pango issues. The new 1.10 release also
1009 fixes shadows again.
1010 * I think the lib linking in Makefile.am is right now, please tell me if it
1011 isn't.
1012 * Added a finnish translation and some minor updates to others.
1013 * Fixed configure.ac so --enable-pango doesn't disable pango support or the
1014 other way around, make enabled be default to get some extra testing.
1015
10163.3-rc1:
1017 * Poked around a bit in the code that keeps windows onscreen, if you
1018 are using xinerama, please let me know if things are better/worse/same.
1019 * Add support for pango, disabled by default due to a bug in pango 1.8 that
1020 breaks shadows, it works fine with 1.6.x though. Poke the pango developers
1021 here http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=169622 if you want this
1022 to be fixed.
1023 * Made edge resist and Send/MoveToEdge not hit windows at layers below
1024 the current one, add option to disable this behaviour.
1025 * Fixed directional focus not getting trapped in omnipresent windows
1026 * Fixed focus actions when bound to the mouse, normal focus cycle is always
1027 linear and directional focus is totally disabled, it makes no sense
1028 anyway, just move the mouse.
1029 * Added an option for the raise/lower/raiselower/unshaderaise/shadelower
1030 options called group that lets you bind stuff to raise/lower the whole
1031 window group. <action name="raise"><group>yes</group></action>
1032 * Add various new actions. I haven't updated the web docs yet, but I think
1033 I managed to get all of them listed in rc.xsd.
1034 * Bugs 1783, 1812, 1863, 1905, 2005, 1957 fixed.

1038 * Added spanish and swedish translations
1039 * Changed "Unnamed Desktop" to "Desktop n" where n is the actual
1040 number of the desktop
1041 * Hopefully no more of the hanging X totally bug
1042 * the fullscreen property now overrides aspect hints, all programs i've
1043 tried that use it (mplayer and tvtime) handle the aspect internally
1044 anyway, this just makes sure you have black borders all the way to the
1045 edge. If this breaks anything for you, let me know.
1046 * Added M as an alias for Mod3 in the same manner that W is an alias for Mod4
1047 * Added probably too many options and actions
1048 * ToggleDockAutohide to toggle the autohide option at runtime,
1049 doesn't save it to the config
1050 * keepBorder option to set if you want the 1-pixel border when you
1051 toggleDecorations
1052 * added popupShow and popupPosition to control where and when the
1053 move/resize-popup is shown, these go in the resize section of the config
1054 popupPosition can be Top or Center, popupShow can be Always, Never or
1055 Nonpixel (this is the default).
1056 * Added the xorStyle option to change the behaviour of menus along the bottom
1057 edge, note that the default is true
1058 * warpPointer option in the menu section to control if the mouse cursor is
1059 to be warped by openbox when the menu moves to keep on screen to keep the
1060 cursor in the same place relative to the menu. (I think i got that right)
1061 * Added back the focusLast option (this controls what happens when you
1062 change desktops and have followMouse on)
1063 * Added an option to set which desktop to start on when you start openbox,
1064 firstdesk, for example you might like to set it to 5 if you have a 3x3
1065 grid to start in the middle.
1066 * I think that was everything, have fun
1067

1163 * Closed bug #907 (window focus is not properly indicated)
