Window Managers After 6 months of development and more than 1000 change sets, the final version of awesome 3.0 has been released. 'awesome' is a frame-work window manager, which also supports tiling window management. This major release brings a lot of new features. The whole configuration file is now write in the Lua language and use a simple API. This allows to modify and control every corner of the window manager. This version is based on XCB, a new low level library which communicate with the X server. Pango usage also enhances text rendering.

Most of this memory is shared (according to ksysguard) awesome use 8mb if I remove shared mem from the count. It is a lot compared to DWM, but I loaded a lot of pixmap and like all "useless feature" (according to suckless group) that they added.
