- Spec file changes
  * Create subpackage for the lisp sources
  * Change the Group tag for the package to User Interface/Desktop
    as the System/GUI/Other is not valid anymore
* Fri Jun 28 2013
- Add sawfish-pager to recommends as it eases window navigation
* Wed May 15 2013
- Updated to 1.9.91
  * Bug Fixes
  - Always rebuild the list of marked windows in tabs when closing
    a marked window.  [fuchur]
  - In 'sawfish-config' fix the 'make-choice-item' to properly
    support settings for the 'Crux' theme.  [Vedat Hallac]
  * Removed Features
  - Removed 'sawfish.wm.ext.expose' in favour of much more
    advanced tiling-functions.  [Christopher Bratusek]

* Tue Jan 08 2013
- Update to 1.9.90
  * Updated or New dependencies

  * Bug Fixes
  - Always rebuild the list of marked winows in tabs when closing
    a marked window. [fuchur]
  - Only allow a window to be tabbed, if the parent window's
    framestyle has support for tabs.  (Note that in Sawfish
    different windows can have diffrent framestyles) [fuchur]
  - `window-ops-menu' was still calling
    `resize-window-to-dimension' that didn't exist anymore since
    Sawfish 1.7. Use `resize-window-prompt' instead. [Christopher
  - Make "Sawfish Rootmenu" label an insensitive menu-item, so
    that clicking it while the root-menu pops-up doesn't make the
    menu dissapear immediately. [Christopher Bratusek]
  - In SawfishConfig you can select different cursor shapes for
    different buttons. Some of the definitions have been wrong
    and could crash Sawfish when choosing them. This is fixed
    now. [fuchur]
  - When a windows `max-width' or `max-height' would exceed 32767
    (X11's maximum) it would result in odd window-behaviour (for
    example: no maximization button), this is fixed by capping
    the value at 32767. Originally reported with Firefox and
    Thunderbird 17.0 [Michael Panteleit]
  - Fixed grabbing key-bindings in SawfishConfig. [Christopher
  * New Features
  - Tiling. [Jose A. Ortega Ruiz] [Christopher Bratusek]
    Currently this module is under heavy testing (so you have
    been warned!). `tall-tile' has been tested to properly work
    (with some minor hickups), while `col-tile' is untested.
    Example on how to test the new `tall-tile' module (for more
    infos read `lisp/sawfish/wm/tile/':
    ;; Tiling
    (require 'sawfish.wm.tile.tile)
    (tall-tiling 0 #:width 2 #:top 0 #:bottom 1 #:gap 1 #:max 3)
    (bind-keys global-keymap
    "F11" 'tile-workspace
    "C-S-KP_Add" 'increase-max-windows
    "C-S-KP_Subtract" 'decrease-max-windows
    "C-F11" 'next-tiling)
  - Completeley revised `resize-window-prompt'. Now display
    window's name and old width (respectively old height) when
    prompt for new values. Shows an information, if one of the
    given values is not actually a number. [Christopher Bratusek]
  - External Application modules. Those modules allow handling,
    setting-up external application during a sawfish session. See
    `AUTOSTART' for additional notes on them.
    ++ `trayer' module. Handles a `trayer' (a system-tray)
    instance during a sawfish session.  [Christopher
    ++ `xmobar' module. Handles a `xmobar' (an on-screen, very
    flexible bar, monitoring whatever you like) instance
    during a sawfish session. [Christopher Bratusek]
    ++ `xmodmap' module. Allows reading `~/.Xmodmap' on
    startup of Sawfish. [Christopher Bratusek]
    ++ `xsettingsd' module. Handles a `xsettingsd' (a daemon
    implementing XSettings to provide GTK+ application with
    information like what theme to use))instance during a
    sawfish session. [Christopher Bratusek]
    ++ `xgamma' module. Allows changing display's gamma
    settings on startup of Sawfish. [Christopher Bratusek]
    ++ `fehlstart' module. Handles a `fehlstart' (a simple,
    but yet flexible application launcher) instance during a
    sawfish session. [Christopher Bratusek]
    ++ `pancake' module. Handles a `pancake' (a simple desktop
    panel with pager, window-list, taskbar, tray) instance
    during a sawfish session [Christopher Bratusek]

    tabbing  was done, tabbing didn't work anymore until Sawfish
    restarted. This is fixed now. [fuchur]
  * In `' source `$(repexecdir)/' as
    first, so that `--prefix' and co. from `configure' won't get

  * Bug Fixes
    + When cursor-warping was enabled and user switched to a shaded
    window, the cursor warped to the position of the unshaded
    window. This is fixed now.  [Christopher Bratusek]
    + When switching between tabbed themes from SawfishConfig, it
    could happens that there were `gaps' in the frame. This is
    fixed now. [Christopher Bratusek]

    mouse- or mixed mouse-key-bindings. This is fixed now. (Move
    mouse 20 pixels to grab a `Move' event).  [Christopher
    + SawfishConfig became useless when Sawfish restarted. This is
    now worked-around by simply restarting SawfishConfig when
    Sawfish does. A new `before-restart-hook' has been added for
    this purpose. [Christopher Bratusek]
    + In EdgeActions `HotSpot', `HotMove' and `EdgeFlip', it was
    possible to trigger the same event multiple times at a time.

    desktop-file contains both Categories and the (errorneous)
    Category key, or only the later. [Matthew Love]
    + Fixed a bug in window-manager selection handling. Set all
    fields of the client message event. This prevents bugs, where
    Sawfish sometimes isn't able to replace another
    window-manager or aquiring the screen if no other WM is
    running. [Timo Korvola]
    + When making X request, we might receive and `select' will
    stuck. This is fixed now [Michal Maruska]
    + Avoid calling Xmap for gone windows. [Michal Maruska]
    + Fixed a possible segmentation fault in `leave_notify' [Michal
    + In SawfishConfig the `choice' widget didn't work when the
    choices were numerical values. This is fixed now.
