JWM is back

Reports are that Joe's latest JWM, revision 492, is very good. There was a problem with the Dillo window not displaying, which is now fixed.

JWM is just that little bit snappier than Openbox and Fbpanel, so I am reverting. The next release of Quirky will have JWM.

I have also thrown in SGTT, a very basic time-tracker application:

Jemimah found SGTT and also some other little time utilities:

...I have only checked out SGTT so far.

Classic
To me JWM is "Classic Puppy" and I have always prefered it. Will be very glad to have it back in Quirky.

Wary update?
I'm glad to hear JWM is coming back. Slightly off topic: will there be an updated Wary or was it a one-off experiment?

JWM+Rox+Thunar?
JWM has always delivered speed since I've used your distro.

It might be good to include a Win-explorer-like file manager like Thunar, very useful to frayed nerves of Win refugees.

defaultfilemanager
Yes, Raffy, with Lighthouse Pup I've had some requests for other file managers including Thunar so I've begun using a defaultfilemanager in /usr/local/bin and referencing that instead of rox in scripts. ROX-Filer is still the default and my preference, however the idea is to give anyone a quick way to switch over to their preferred file manager.

JWM loses network and free space icons
I have tried the JWM pet but using JWM I have no icons for free space or network connection at the bottom right.
