  * Support the specification of an alternate configuration file (patch from
    Brian Bidulock)
  * Added Corner option to configure the roundedness of windows.
  * Updated the look of borders around menus and trays.
  * Add support for _NET_WM_MOVERESIZE (issue #142).
  * Add the fullscreen group option (patch from George Shaw).
  * Made window style configuration more consistent (may break old
    configuration files).
  * Add scale background type.
  * Added group options: nomin, nomax, noclose, nomove, noresize (issue #152),
    and nofullscreen (issue #163).
  * Added the Outline tag to MenuStyle to specify the color of menu outlines
    (issue #31).
  * Added the Outline tag to TrayStyle to specify the color of tray outlines.
  * To conform with GNU standards, running "make install" no longer strips the
    executable. To strip the executable, "make install?strip" can be used
  * Added the ability to swallow the same client into a tray multiple times.
  * Added the ability to specify where the tray is hidden when auto-hide is
    enabled (issue #34).
  * Menu Includes are now loaded dynamically when a menu is shown rather than
    when JWM starts.
  * Added the sendu, sendd, sendl and sendr key bindings to send a window to a
    different desktop (issue #119).
  * Added the maxh, maxv, maxtop, maxbottom, maxleft and maxright key bindings
    (issues #120 and #157).
  * Added the ability to have separate actions per mouse button for tray
    buttons (issue #171). This is accomplished using the Button tag. For
    <TrayButton label="My Button">
      <Button mask="1">
      <Button mask="45">
    The Button tags are optional. By default the action will use mouse button
    mask 123.
  * Add the ability to have separate actions per mouse button for clock tray
    components (issue #171) and the ability to have clock tray components run
    actions like tray buttons (issue #172).
  * Add support for more than 10 menus. Now 26 additional menus can be defined
    using the letters a through z.

Configuration Changes

The following XSLT is available to update JWM v2.2 configuration files for use
with JWM v2.3: jwm-2.3.xslt.

To convert an existing v2.2 configuration file using xsltproc, run:

cp ~/.jwmrc ~/.jwmrc.old
xsltproc jwm-2.3.xslt ~/.jwmrc.old > ~/.jwmrc

If you have multiple configuration files, it may be necessary to apply the XSLT
to some or all of them depending on what configuration options are stored in
the file.

A summary of configuration changes follows.

  * The ActiveBackground and ActiveForeground tags have been replaced by
    Background and Foreground under the Active tag. This applies to TrayStyle,
    TaskListStyle, TrayButtonStyle, PagerStyle, and MenuStyle.
  * The Inactive tag under WindowStyle has been removed. The tags that used to
    go within this tag now go directly under the WindowStyle tag.
  * The autohide attribute in Tray now determines where the tray should be
    hidden (left, right, top, bottom, or off) instead of true or false.
  * Now actions in the Clock tag must be prefixed with exec: to run an external
