Metacity: Recent happenings in Metacity and Mutter

view full story

http://blogs.gnome.org – Here’s a quick round-up of interesting goings-on in the Metacity and Mutter worlds this week. Sam H wants to implement tabbed windows in the window manager (so that each application would think it had multiple windows open, but the user would see tabs).  The responses included “awesome” and “my personal hero”.  Sam H plans to work on this on github and merge later. Thomas wrote some basic window matching code.  It needs some work. Our post on the future of Metacity gained quite a bit of mournful attention, including an article in Linux Pro Magazine.
