All window decorations are configurable, the basic
idea is to have as much user-interface policy as possible controlled through the Lisp language.
Despite this extensibility its policy is currently very minimal
compared to most window managers. Its aim is simply to manage windows
in the most flexible and attractive manner possible. As such it does
not implement desktop backgrounds, applications docks, or other things
that may be achieved through separate applications.
All high-level wm functions are implemented in Lisp for future
extensibility or redefinition. Currently this includes menus (using
GTK+), interactive window moving and resizing, virtual desktop,
iconification, focus/transient window policies, frame theme definitions
and much more.
Also, most received events are exported to the Lisp environment through
``key-bindings'' and hooks, similar to in Emacs. These events include
pointer behaviour and many internal X11 events (enter/leave,
focus-in/focus-out, map/unmap, etc..)

- Fixed that a focus change by pointer motion was ignored after x-cycle. - Focus-mode 'enter-exit' now ignores 'pointer-out' event. Fixing flickering bugs with widgets like GtkComboBox,GtkCompletion or Firefox' URL-Bar. - Fixed that 'edge-flip-delay' did not work as expected. - Better detection of transient windows during tiling - The Tiling functions now use 'calculate-workarea' to not overlap '_NET_WM_STRUT' windows like panels and others. - let 'window-icon-image' use 'NET_WM_ICON' to get 16x16 icon. - Allow passing of extra (custom) arguments to compton. - Add 'lumina-window-matchers' for better interaction of Lumina and Compton. Also filter Lumina out from 'cabinet'. - Add double buffering of frame parts to reduce flickering while redraw of frames. - Properly filter out 'conky' from 'cabinet'. - Restructured session file installation. - Merge downstream Debian GNU/Linux packaging scripts upstream - Debian code review Fix FSF address across all files , Fix code spellings , Make build reproducible , add missing Keywords to .desktop files
