Much to the surprise of MOST (I think, ALL except two) fluxboxers on the planet, a HUGE conference took place on 2015-08-13 in Heidelberg: Fluxconf2015! In case you missed the conference or were too late to grab the gold tickets: You next chance ... [More] will be in 2025, Fluxconf takes place only once in 10 years. If the moon is at the right position. Right now, in Heidelberg / Germany, DebConf2015 is taking place. A nice dude, who travels under the name "Paul ☃ Tagliamonte", happens to be there, for some absolutely unrelated reason. Coincidentally, yours truly had things to do in Bonn / Germany, which is relativly close to DebConf2015. So, in some kind of spontaneous mood, we decided to just meet in person in Heidelberg. Time was crucial and very limited. We managed to pack a lot of things into the little we had: a keynote, several talks, a BoF regarding version numbers, evil master plans and a lot more. And beer. Obviously. Sadly, we were too drunk and/or jetlagged (Paul was up 24hours already when I arrived at his location) to take any pictures. So, you have to take my word for it: it was great! [Less]

To release 1.3.6 ~ a month ago was a great success: A lot of you, our users, who rarely run bleeding edge fluxbox.git, were confronted with what was hidden in the git repository for almost 2 years. Due to the lack of testing power there was no other ... [More] way to get "massive" feedback. 1.3.6 generated the feedback we needed to make 1.3.7. There will be bugs, obviously, but we think 1.3.7 is in pretty good shape. Without further ado: Critical Bugfixes: Segfault on startup (mostly *BSD) Segfault on shutdown Segfault on clicking the Remember menu Menu crops on TypeAhead Minor Bugfixes: _NET_REQUEST_FRAME_EXTENTS Working autorepeat keys Working vertical rotated Tabs and Toolbar Proper size of titlebar buttons on restart / detaching tabs Missing windowmenu works again Several glitches in the menu Correct handling of 'maximized' statement in the apps file Features: The improved TypeAhead sytem is not limited to matches on beginning of menu items anymore, the behavior is configurable: Nowhere - disables TypeAhead support ItemStart - matches typed text only at the start of a menu item Somewhere - matches typed text somewhere in a menu item (Currently this is a configfile-only option) Minor tweaks to the i18n system Updated turkish translations End User unrelated: Code refactoring and cleanup, assisted by Coverity and clang static code analysis Get it at the usual places, downloading the source is one option.

A nasty, little bug went undiscovered into 1.3.3 and prevented the logic commands from working. So, if you happen to use any of the logic commands like 'if', 'and' or .. well .. 'or' in your keys-file: This is the release that fixes that for you. Nothing else was added or fixed. Sorry for the inconvinience!
