Window Maker 0.95.8 has been released. It contains a number of changes related to window snapping and quite a number of other changes for what is supposedly a point release.
I submitted the GTK style for WM, what seems like a lifetime ago. I actually like the LiveCD distro. Good to see it still around, but at the same time it saddens me that the dream of a NeXT desktop in X never really came to fruition.
So much work to keep Amiga alive, and yet the appscape there is absolutely barren. NeXT was rich and remains to this day the best user environment ever. If I had a modern web browser for OPENSTEP 4.2 I'd still be using it
I used to love WM. In fact at one point I had replaced the Explorer shell in windows woth Afterstep because I liked it so much.
Do yhey have a Netsurf port for the NeXT? That seems to be the go to modern browser for m68k family of systems these days. Though sadly it sounds like they are dropping the Atari build, but the Amiga one is still alive.
It just does.
Nice to see this.
It's been a while, this used to be my desktop on Linux. Then I transitioned to OpenSolaris and then Mac in order to have stable environments for my work.
Very nice. Given the downward quality of Mac, i'm sorry macOS now, I might just dust off an old machine and give this a whirl again.
I still use windowmaker as a daily driver on my development desktop. Light and fast and doesn't get in the way! Not so great for laptops as I don't think there are very many dockapps being developed nowadays...if I'm wrong about that please post about things like power managers, etc....

i consider wmaker being *the* basic window manager. of course you can go lower (twm, fvwm etc) but it's hardly more comfortable than running x without wm at all.
wmaker can be used on its own for longer period, it does what it does and not more. i always liked that.
from many other wm's i tried, i liked the possibility of tcp connect to window manager and send script commands from command line (speaking of sawfish/sawmill).
Looking goodand gtk3 in same senence... does not compute.
You made Darkthrone? That's one of my favorites.
Yeah, took about an hour in the Gimp on a Thinkpad. I'm not even good with Gimp. I'm biased, but I think it looks nice even today. The idea was that I would push to box-look and then re-download whenever I re-formatted. Glad to see somebody else has used the theme.
Ouch...I started buying funky ergo keyboards because I started developing some serious repetitive injury pain from those sun keyboards.
And yes, I've always been able to configure everything I need from the GUI. Edited 2017-03-16 21:43 UTC
thanks for the note, did not realize we missed the last updates, so I quickly updated it the t2sde:
Seriously, NeWS was so much better...
Having run olvwm for some years at work, I still think windowmaker is the better window manager.
I loved the rounded buttons and especially the scrollbar controls that were part of the openlook widget set.
I really despised motif... Edited 2017-03-16 21:54 UTC
