Hi there,

I'm glad to announce new releases of dwm and dmenu.
Both contain several bugfixes and updated man pages.


dwm-1.5 is more predictable regarding global client order, it
keeps it untouched (esp. in floating mode and for floating
clients). The only exception occures if the focused client
is floating it will be raised in the specific set of selected
tags (though the z order information won't be lost).
dwm-1.5 also includes a global focus stack which remembers the
focus order for all clients. This is only used to restore the
focus on changing the set of tags currently viewed and if a
client is detached from the view.

dmenu-0.9 now grabs all keypresses, even if you type
while dmenu still reads items from stdin. The new strategy
uses a select() call which waits for data written to stdin
config.h:STDIN_TIMEOUT seconds. If no data is written during
this timeout (eg if there has been an accidently call of dmenu
from your interactive shell) it will exit silently.
Otherwise dmenu would grab the keyboard already before the user
could supply any input (or pressing C-d) as item list.
You might have noticed in wmiimenu and earlier versions of dmenu
that if you have a script running in the background not
finishing its job very fast, some keypresses are lost by dmenu.
This is not the case anymore due this fix.
