Window Managers After six years, development on Window Maker has picked up again. Other than mere bug fixes, the two new releases (so far) also include lots of code cleanup and, yes, new features as well. Welcome back!

One word of caution to other OSNews readers, the name is Window Maker, not WindowMaker. See the README file:

Window Maker was previously called WindowMaker.

Window Maker has no connection with Windowmaker, the software for making windows and doors.


I actually do love Window Maker and I've used it extensively for a while, before moving to Openbox. I actually compiled the new version yesterday. :-)

Unfortunately, Window Maker and GNUstep are not "modern" enough to get a bigger fanbase. Project √Čtoil√© (http://etoileos.com) could be a way forward, but it still has a long way to go and it's progress rate seems to be very slow.
