News in 1.0rc:

      - option in Configure menu to enable/disable

        No restart required.

   * Added support for following atoms:


       _NET_WM_STATE_DEMANDS_ATTENTION (flashing titlebar/iconbar)






      For a complete list of supported net wm atoms

      go to: http://www.fluxbox.org/docs/ewmh-support.html

   * Added new commands:

     * ToggleCmd

       Works like a macro but executes the commands one at the time in order.


       Mod1 T :ToggleCmd {Exec xterm} {NextWindow}

       When Mod1 T is press the first time it will start xterm, the second

       time it will do NextWindow. When it reaches end it will start at the


     * CloseAllWindows

       Closes all windows.

   * Supports urgency hint ( flashing titlebar/iconbar )

   * Pressing shift while pressing enter in menu item will fake a right mouse

     button press. Useful for increase/decrease values in menu.

   * Updated documentation

   * Flashing titlebar/iconbar when the window demands attention with urgency


     The blink rate can be configured with the following resource:

     session.screen0.demandsAttentionTimeout: <timeout in milliseconds>

     Default value is 500.

     If the value is zero this feature will be disabled.

   * Better UTF-8 handling

   * fbrun: Move the cursor to the end when tab completing

     (rfe #1333003, patch #1475578)

   * Added option to reverse desktop wheeling (patch #1034287)

     session.screen0.reversewheeling: true|false

   * Vertical toolbar is back.

   * Provide "Key Modes"

     - New action in keys file:

         Modifier Key :KeyMode &lname> <end Modifier> </end><end Key>

       Will define a key binding namespace activated by the given mod/key

       combination. The End Modifier and key are optional. They define

       the key combination that quits the given key mode. They default

       to just 'Escape'.

     - New keys file optional prefix:

         <name>: Modifier Key :Command

       will only work when the </name><name> keymode is activated.

     - </name><name> is  "default" if not specified - so:

        **default commands will not be activated inside another keymode**

     - Handy Example:

        Mod1 X :KeyMode XNest

        XNest: Mod1 X :KeyMode default

       Will switch to XNest keymode when you press Alt-X. Then the

       default bindings will not be caught by normal fluxbox, and will

       pass through to an Xnested one! Groovy... Alt-X will switch back

       to normal.
