features -- primarily a virtual desktop, meaning that what is currently on
screen is just a portion of a larger workspace.  What portion of the virtual
desktop that is displayed, and whatever windows might be visible within it,
are simple point-and-click operations within a scaled representation of the

vtwm (5.4.7-2) unstable; urgency=low
* Add build-dependency on librplay3-dev to fix FTBFS (librplay3-dev does not
depend on libc6-dev for some reason, so I didn't catch this when scrubbing
my chroot.  Sigh.)
2005-11-05 - Branden Robinson <branden@debian.org>
vtwm (5.4.7-1) unstable; urgency=low
* Merge new upstream release.
+ This release is dedicated to the memory of David J. Hawkey, Jr., who
passed away in 2004.  VTWM is now team-developed by the VTWM hackers at
http://www.vtwm.org/, and Callum Gibson is the release manager.
+ See /usr/share/doc/vtwm/HISTORY for a comprehensive list of new
features, behavior changes, and bug fixes.
* Bump Debian standards version to 3.6.2; no changes necessary.
* Update URL in package description.
* Tweak Debian rules file:
+ Explicitly set optimization to -O0 if DEB_BUILD_OPTS contains "noopt".
+ Export the CDEBUGFLAGS variable instead of manually passing it to Make.
+ Make shell style tweaks.
* Remove Debian patch to remove increment of yylineno variable from parse.c;
upstream has "#ifdef"ed it out so that it can be restored for systems
where lex doesn't define and use this variable for itself.
* Ship more upstream documentation files: 4.6.ANNOUNCE, 4.6.README,
* Remove "SunkFocusWindowTitle" configuration parameter from
debian/system.vtwmrc-menu, since it is no longer supported.
* Fix menu-method file to background launched apps, so the window manager
doesn't wedge.  Whoops.  Thanks to Matthew A. Micholson for the patch!
