Description Simon 2009-10-15 19:19:08 UTC
Spec URL:


Key features of i3 are correct implementation of Xinerama (workspaces are 
assigned to virtual screens, i3 does the right thing when attaching new 
monitors), XrandR support (not done yet), horizontal and vertical columns 
(think of a table) in tiling. Also, special focus is on writing clean, readable 
and well documented code. i3 uses xcb for asynchronous communication with X11, 
and has several measures to be very fast.

Please be aware i3 is primarily targeted at advanced users and developers.

Comment 2 Christoph Wickert 2009-10-17 00:41:57 UTC
Is this a pre- or post release? From the version 3.c I guess it's a post-release, but from the release 0.2 it must be a pre-release. Huh?

This package DOES NOT follow the naming guidelines. Non numeric values are not allowed in the version, they belong into the release. See
Now Simon needs to introduce an epoch to get this fixed.
