Window Managers FVWM 2.6 has been released. "It's been almost five years since the last stable release of FVWM (2006) and almost ten years since the development version of FVWM (2.5.X) which became this latest stable release was started! A lot of hard work from many talented individuals has made this release possible."

Not really. I imagine that the latest incarnations of the three major desktop environments are pushing people back to more traditional window managers. As long as there are still users there's always room for bugfixes.

What does that mean? Too late for you? Too late to be a relevant release? FVWM has a pretty hardcore following and not everyone likes the big desktop environments.

Based on the screenshots on this (http://www.fvwm.org/screenshots/desktops/) page it doesn't look like its too late to me.
