FREE SOFTWARE --
After nearly two years since the previous release, the Fluxbox team has released Fluxbox 1.3.6 (codenamed "It's about time") to start off the new year.

For new Linux users, Fluxbox is a long-standing X window manager derived from Blackbox. Fluxbox is lightweight and very fast yet offers a lot of functionality.

Fluxbox 1.3.6 brings fixes for clocktool problems, rendering long text, a race conditionmm on shutdown, long keypresses after workspace switching, and corruption of fbrun-history. The only new features after the two-year wait is an ArrangeWindowsStack action and treating Windows with a WM_CLASS as DockApp as DockApps. There's also smaller bug-fixes and translation updates.
