Sawfish experimental 1.3.4 released


We are pleased to announce the experimental release of sawfish 1.3.4.
This version has new features added for testing purposes.

This new sawfish-experimental branch can always be re-created using from sawfish
trunk. By this way we are solving the potential problem of
experimental branch wandering too far off the trunk. This
"re-creation" method will be performed from time to time to ensure
that it still works.

This release is intended to be packaged separately, from sawfish
release, for linux distributions, which will allow end users to have
a choice between "sawfish" (stable) and "sawfish-experimental"

Many hidden options were re-exposed in the configurator: viewport
bindings and dimensions, window animation options, tooltips options,
window movement outline modes, move/resize options and edge-flip
delay. A new error handler was added which allows printing errors to
both: a file and onto a screen dialog box. A new hook after
raise/lower window has been added with intention of using it for
tabbed-windowing. Added an option for smooth animation when changing
viewports. An option allowing to warp the mouse pointer to windows
while cycling them was added as well as option to move mouse cursor
to active window which was just unmaximized, which prevents this
window from losing focus.
