Last release 3.4.3, I made the same point. - Why on OSNews (since its only a point release and you dont seem report on releases of other window managers)?

The arguments for this being news were that it is relevant because an OS running X11 needs a windowmanager to run, and the uneven reporting was simply that people wernt submitting news. - and 3.4.3 was a fairly big release.

- read the changelog to see that 3.4.4 is mainly bugfix releaser with 24 items in the changelog.

Since then I have submitted 2 OSNews items.
1) Update release of a WebOS
2) a new release pf fb-panel (that I run with openbox as it happens) - I also submitted a screenshot of openbox+fbpanel on my desktop.
- screenshot of openbox+fbpanel with 4 screen xinerama http://members.optusnet.com.au/cjbarton/4heads.png

Neither of these posts were used, which is fine, but if a OpenBox is news then I think a webos or the release of a nifty panel are also.

Is a score of -500 the new punishment for disagreeing with the editors? I doubt 500 people mod'ed this down.
