* available for amd64/i386/armhf. Build in progress.

What's new?

1.10.99 "Carrera Rapida"

   * Bug Fixes

        - Fix possibly wrong 'input-focus' from 'enter-*' focus-modes in
          tabbed-windowing.  [fuchur]

        - Properly support tabbed-windowing when tiling is active
          aswell.  [fuchur]

        - When installing manpages the 'mandir' from configure is now
          honoured.  [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Fix handling symbol-type defcustoms in sawfish-xgettext,
          preventing generation of new sawfish.pot.  [Christopher

   * New Features

        - 'CTWM' like interactive window placement.  Previously pressing
          any button while interactively placing a window would place
          it.  'Sawfish' now mimics 'CTWM's behaviour: pressing button 1
          will just place the window, button 2 will allow dragging to
          resize the window and place it when the button releases,
          button 3 will place the window and attempt to fill it to the
          screen bottom.  [Maxime Soulé]

        - Add ability to move tabs around in the titlebar.

        - Add 'marked-cursor-shape' defcustom (used when marking windows
          for tabbing).

   * Miscellaneous Changes

        - Improve 'cabinet' window-switcher.  Code-cleanup, bug fixes,
          blacklisting applications (mostly panels, pagers) and icon for
          missing window-icons.  [fuchur]

        - Enable 'shade-hover' and 'auto-raise' in SawfishConfig,
          utilize them in tabbed-windowing.

        - Improve icon size in StyleTab, add 'Flat' style.  Also improve
          speed and decrease memory usage by mirroring images [fuchur]

        - Use 'menulibre' instead of 'alacarte' in XFCE and MATE
          integration by default [fuchur]

        - Do not let 'xfce-session' save the session (by adding '-f'
          flag in XFCE integration) [fuchur]

        - Tweak default compton settings.  [fuchur]

        - Improve doc strings in many modules [fuchur]

        - Add 'html' target to man/Makefile, creating html-documentation
          [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Add 'make-changelog' script by Marcus D. Hanwell (generates
          ChangeLog from git log) [Christopher Bratusek]

        - Updated german translation.  [fuchur]

        - Updated RPM spec file.  [Kim B. Heino]

        - Updated Debian packaging scripts.  [Christopher Bratusek]
