This page is for keeping a record of significant changes in darcs xmonad and xmonad-contrib since the 0.11 releases (Jan 1, 2013). See darcs changes in the source repositories for the patches and more details covering documentation and bug fixes not noted here.

xmonad-contrib 0.11.1 was a release to address a build falure with X11-1.6.1. 0.11.2 addresses a security where window titles sent on to XMonad.Hooks.DynamicLog could contain <action="command"></action> tags, which potentially are executed by xmobar or dzen. 0.11.3 addresses a build failure with ghc-7.8.2 . xmonad-contrib 0.11.4 and xmonad-core-0.11.1 address a build failure with ghc-7.10.1


[edit] 1 non-breaking changes

[edit] 1.1 data-default

Use of data-default allows using def where previously you had to write defaultConfig, defaultXPConfig defaultFoo.

[edit] 1.1.1 core

[edit] setlocale

The setlocale package is now used instead of a binding shipped with xmonad proper. This allows using Main.hs instead of Main.hsc.

[edit] 2 breaking changes

[edit] 2.1 updatePointer

XMonad.Actions.UpdatePointer.updatePointer arguments were changed. This allows including aspects of both of the TowardsCentre and Relative methods. To keep the same behavior, replace the entry in the left column with the entry on the right:

< 0.12 >= 0.12
updatePointer Nearest updatePointer (0.5, 0.5) (1,1)
updatePointer (Relative x y) updatePointer (x,y) (1,1)
updatePointer (TowardsCentre x y) updatePointer (0.5,0.5) (x,y)
