MIcroscopic Window Manager

MIcroscopic Window Manager (MIWM) is a fast, small, minimalist, and extremely reliable window manager. It is designed to do the job very simply and unobtrusively, without constraining power users. It features optional auto-tiling, desktop cleanup, a user-defined root menu, optional previewing of hidden windows, variable numbers of virtual desktops, and configurable window behavior. It includes a simple, very effective memory management utility for leak detection.

    Release Notes: This update adds persistent application settings, and miwm.config and miwm.usermenu files in ~/.miwm so that users can alter the settings easily at run time without recompilation. Examples of both are now included to ease setup. There is code cleanup throughout, as well as installation of an miwm_framework so that settings from the configuration files and command line arguments are easily accessed in a uniform way throughout the program.
