Mostly themes, triaging, and patch review.

One thought on “2.23.3”

  1. Hey… great job! Just compiled last revision and performance with compositing on is now a lot better without the FPS cap. Also loved the window previews + window icon badge.

    Despite the lack of things like sorting windows like tiling or centering, Metacity is starting to rock in more ways than I could imagine – you guys are doing a fine job.
