    Release Notes: This is a bugfix and enhancement release. It works with FVWM 2.6.5 without losing the new Xdg menu support from the CVS version. It has its own XDG applications menu, a revised fvwm-menu-desktop GUI with help windows, a 'smart maximize' feature that moves and resizes the current window to the largest free area of a desktop/page, a new set of icons for menus and internal apps to remove the wm-icons dependency, and support for Gentoo packaging.

      Release Notes: This release has an enhanced uninstall routine for generic installation. An install list will be created, so keeping the sources of the installed version is never needed anymore. Local installation now possible if the user does not have root privileges. This release exchanges Esetroot with feh because of poor availability of the eterm package in different distribution repositories.
