Bluetile branch merged into xmonad!
focus lies on making the tiling paradigm easily accessible to users coming from traditional window managers by drawing on known conventions and providing both mouse and keyboard access for all features. It also tries to be usable ‘out of the box’, requiring minimal to no configuration in most cases.
Jan Vornberger, the developer behind bluetile, has been working hard to ensure xmonad supports bluetile fully. The upcoming stable release of xmonad will support the bluetile extensions directly, meaning a whole new range of interface and usability options for xmonad users.
You can see a demo of the bluetile model:
The next steps though are to,
- provide an XMonad.Config.Bluetile module in xmonad-contrib
- And release the stable xmonad supporting the new bluetile code
If you want to try out the bluetile code, your best bet at the moment is to move to the darcs version of xmonad, and start there.
