Hi there,

I released a bugfix release that fixes the layout symbol updating
mechanism during setlayout (though in a different way as suggested by
Nibble) and that contains some improvements for the overall drawbar()
and arrange() handling which performed unnecessary execution on
unchanged monitors. It can be downloaded from:


Please report any issues.

Kind regards,

> Hi there,
> I'm glad to announce dwm-5.7 which can be downloaded from:

> This release contains various code cleanups and several minor
> improvements, in particular several contributed patches by Neale,
> anydot, Jukka, nsz, and Tony.
> The biggest changes are that the layout symbol can be modified by the
> arrange function of a layout (see monocle() for an example) and that
> the updategeom() algorithm has been rewritten from scratch. Now
> geometry changes do not result in a complete destruction of the
> Monitor struct and broken applications like wine that configure the
> root window do not result in recreating the Monitor struct altogether.
> Several patches have been updated to dwm-5.7 already.
> Once again many thanks to all contributors!
> Please report any issues.
> Kind regards,
