  * New module features:
    FvwmButtons learned a new option "Colorset" to its
    ChangeButton command.
  * fvwm-menu-desktop updated:
    Renamed default menu to XDGMenu and changed the name
    of the FvwmForm to FvwmForm-XDGMenu-Config to not conflict
    with someone already using FvwmMenu.
    fvwm-menu-desktop will now load defaults from the
    FvwmForm-XDGMenu-Config data file.
    Improved dynamic menus by regenerating them on-the-fly.
    Added new options: --regen-cmd, --dynamic, and more.
  * Bug fixes:
    A bug introduced in 2.6.6 could cause applications with
    negative coordinates to be placed at strange positions. This
    affected for example acroread when switching to fullscreen
    mode. This has been fixed.
    FvwmButtons "Silent" option for dynamic ChangeButton commands
    no longer loops infinitely.
* Thu Aug 18 2016
- boo#877539 - wrong path in system.fvwm2rc:
  * Fix wallpaper path for 'init' and 'restart' commands.
  * Require default branding wallpaper package.
* Tue Aug 02 2016
- Update to 2.6.6
  * fvwm features:
  - Support for Russian from Ivan Gayevskiy.
  - EnvMatch supports infostore variables.
  - The option "forget" to the Maximize command allows to
    unmaximize a window without changing its size and position.
  - Windows shaded to a corner (NW, NE, SW, SE) are reduced to a
    small square.
  - New option "!raise" to the WarpToWindow command.
  - The new extended variables $[wa.x], $[wa.y], $[wa.width],
    $[wa.height] can be used to get the geometry of the EWMH
    working area, and $[dwa.x], $[dwa.y], $[dwa.width],
    $[dwa.height] can be used to get the geometry of the EWMH
    dynamic working area.
  - The Resize commands accept "wa" or "da" as a suffix of the
    width or height value.  If present, the value is a percentage
    of the width or height of the EWMH working area or the EWMH
    dynamic working area.
  - Fvwm is much more resilient against applications that flood the
    window manager with repeated events.
  * New module features:
  - FvwmForm supports separator lines.
  - New FvwmIconMan options:
  * Bug fixes:
  - Provide a wrapper for the deprecation of XKeycodeToKeysym and
    use XkbKeycodeToKeysym() where appropriate.
  - fvwm-menu-desktop is re-written and provides better support of
    the XDG menu specification.
  - Fix fvwm-menu-desktop keyError bug.  Use "others" if no desktop
    environment found.
  - FvwmIconMan had problems displaying the hilight colour on some
    systems (64 bit issue?).
  - Globally active windows cannot take the focus if the style
    forbids programs to take focus themselves (style
  - Windows no longer jump from one position to the other which
    could happen in some cases with SnapAttraction.  Windows now
    snap to the closest window (or screen edge).
  - Removing bindings had several strange side effects that are
    fixed now (removing too many bindings; old bindings showing up
    again after another is removed; possibly other effects).
  - Windows sometimes did not get expose events (i.e. did not
    redraw properly) if they were uncovered by moving a window
    above them.  This has been fixed.
  - FvwmConsole now causes much less network traffic.
  - Suppress bogus events sent to the modules when a window is
    resized with the mouse.
  - Properly handle the has_ref_window_moved flag for ResizeMove and
  - Removed some unnecessary redraws in FvwmPager.
  - The option "NoDeskLimitY" option of the GotoPage command did
    not work.
  - Negative coordinates in the "rectangle" option to the Menu
    commend did not work correctly.  This has been fixed.
  - Removes a slight graphics problem whith the ResizeMaximize
    command being invoked from a window button menu.
  - When an attempt to reparent a client window (i.e. decorate
    it) fails, fvwm no longer throws away all events but only the
    events for that window.
  - The ChangeButton command of FvwmButtons used to strip
    whitespace from the beginning and end of button titles and
    image paths.  This is no longer done.
- Remove patches now upstream
