Fluxbox 1.0 was released in October of 2007, but its first post-1.0 update has now been released. The source to Fluxbox 1.1 has just hit its SourceForge page, but at this time there is no release announcement nor has their project web-site been updated. There is, however, the change-log that ships with the source package to look at.

Fluxbox 1.1 has quite a few changes and among them are new tab placement options, new key commands, new special keys, and there are also a multitude of bug-fixes. There looks to be about 105 official changes that make up Fluxbox 1.1.0.

For those out of the loop, Fluxbox is an open-source window manager that was derived from an earlier version of the Blackbox window manager. Particularly, Fluxbox is known for being one of the lightweight but highly customizable window managers.
