JWM version 2.4.0 compiled

November 17, 2021 — BarryK

JWM, Joe's Window Manager, has been in the pups since the very early days. JWM is not just a window manager, it also manages one or more trays and one or more menus.

Since sometime in 2020 I have JWM version "1685" in EasyOS, which is a release candidate for version 2.4.0. Actually, 1685 was tagged in 2018, so 2.4.0 has been awhile arriving, but has landed on November 7, 2021:

...the release prior to that was version 2.3.7, on July 22, 2017.

Looking at the commits, there has been a lot of activity through 2020 and 2021. Great that JWM continues to be an active project.

Here is the JWM home page:


The main motivation to bump JWM to latest version, is have been looking at revising the desktop UI.
