I've merged this branch back to trunk now, so it's back at
This isn't quite complete (check TODO.netwm for status) but I think it's good
enough to be useful. If you find any regressions in non-"fancy desktop"
situations please let me know.
Just to recap, the purpose of most of this work is to make it possible to use
wmx with the "desktop background" file managers, panels, docks etc that are
used in GNOME and KDE, and to update some of the basic window manager hints
that have been augmented or superseded by NETWM hints (this includes
providing support for things like undecorated stays-on-top windows, almost
essential for sensible use of applications like OpenOffice with their little
palette helper windows).
This commit should also fix the i18n-in-titlebar issues that were a problem in
the previous Xft support, and it also adds working support for session
management at the most basic possible level -- wmx just tells the session
manager to restart it, it doesn't remember any further state than that.
