Window Managers Awesome 2.2 has been released. "Awesome is a floating and tiling window manager initialy based on a dwm code rewriting. It's extremely fast, small, dynamic and awesome. Windows can be managed in several layouts: tiled, maximized, dwindle, spiral, floating... Each layout can be applied on the fly, optimizing the environment for the application in use and the task performed. Managing windows in tiled mode assures that no space will be wasted on your screen. No gaps, no overlap. Other layouts can be used for different purpose. If you do not want to use the tiling management, you can use the floating layout wich will let you organize your windows as you wish, like any other window manager."

That looks... well, pretty awesome. I tried to give it a try, but ran into dependency hell trying to compile as a number of libraries/versions upon which it depends aren't available in the ubuntu repos.

Not that I'm really thinking of switching, unless I can make it work exactly the same as ion3. But it would sure be fun to play with.
