	There have been a lot of bug fixes to Window Maker since
0.20.3, the last stable release.  This package updates to the current
release 0.50.2, which has lots of nice features including KDE- and
GNOME-compliance, support for a new themes layout, and a new textured
gradient visual effect.


	The pkgsrc tarball is at:

The Makefile tries to be smart about compiling certain features of
Window Maker.  There is a new option WINDOWMAKER_OPTIONS which can be
set to kde and/or gnome to add the compliance-support for the two
desktops.  The Makefile also tries to be smart about supporting the
locale files which were previously not installed -- only the locales
specified by LINGUAS are installed.
