Window Managers AfterStep 2.2.5 has been released. The AfterStep team released the following changelog: "Everything got touched. It's all good." You can get the latest release from the download page; if you have 2.1.0 or later already installed you can use a smaller upgrade package.

Yes, you can turn that off. Everything is customizable in AS, there are several ways to display text on the titlebars, including plain fonts without effects.

All the visual stuff in AS can be set by editing the look files. There are several looks included with AS.

Just a wild guess, but could it be because it only contains the changes in those files? ;)

version 2.2.5 release

* new policy for window groups - if a group leader or an oldest window
in the group is raised - whole group is raised. If any window in the
group gets moved to a different desktop - whole group is moved.
Example of a group of a windows is GIMP and pretty much any GTK app.
* new policy for transients(Dialogs) handling - all transients are stacked
above its owner with newest transient on top of the others.
If any transient is raised - all other transients and the owner are
raised as well. If any transient, or an owner is moved to another desk -
all other transients for this owner and owner will be moved as well.
* New ShowHints option to Wharf determining what is shown in the balloon:
possible options are Name, Comment and Exec, or any combination of these.
* Wharf now withdraws similar to older AfterSteps -
if clicked on top portion - withdraws to a top corner, if clicked on lower -
to bottom corner, left - left, right - right.
* New options in WinList config : NoCollides, AllowCollides and NoCollidesSpacing
These cause WinList to auto magically adjust it's size to avoid covering
windows matching patterns in NoCollides. AllowCollides overrides NoCollides.
NoCollidesSpacing determines amount of free space to leave between WinList and
NoCollides windows. Note that this works only in one direction - if RowsFirst
then in horizontal, otherwise in vertical.
* added menus for different layouts of Wharf, WinList and Pager.
* cleanups in Desktop/Pictures menu.
* Implemented fast JPEG thumbnail loading using built-in libJpeg functionality.
* added support in Wharf to load items from DesktopEntries - Two new functions:
CategoryTree "name" and DesktopEntry "name".
