 Xwu is a set of small utils which extends the functionality of a window-manager, but they are not window-manager-specific.The programs included in Xwu are:
 Xmerge merges two windows, creating a new window, with two "frames", each of them containing one of the original windows. Those familar with frames for HTML documents in Netscape, it is very similar. The new window may be resized and moved, resulting in the two previous windows being moved or resized together. This is especially convienent on small displays, where a set of windows may be maximized together, to make use of all available space.
 Xmini emulates the menu of the window-manager wm2. This menu contains a listing of all windows. When the user clicks on the menu-item corresponding to a window, that window is hidden or restored (the visibility toggled). As the user moves the mouse over the menu-items, the corresponding windows are temporary hidden or restored as a preview of what would happen, would the user click on the item. Most window-managers do not have this last feature, although most of them have a menu listing all windows, through which you can minimize/hide or restore them.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
