Hello, I just released a new version of xprompt, my dmenu-like program.
This version adds undo/redo support and improved input method support.

It has several features and improvements that you cannot find on dmenu.
Most of them are related to text editing on the text input field, which
are listed below:

• Copy/paste with Ctrl-C/Ctrl-V.
• Copy/paste with mouse selection and middle click.
• Select text and move cursor with mouse. Double-click selects words,
   Triple click selects the whole line.
• Undo/redo with Ctrl-Z/Ctrl-Shift-Z.
• Input CJK characters (and other scripts) with support for input
   methods with on-the-spot pre-editing.
• You can change the Ctrl- key bindings with an environment variable.

Other features include:
• Advanced placement (you can place xprompt on the screen with absolute
   and relative position and size, and you can pull its placement origin
   to a monitor side (like center, top-left, etc) by specifying a
• Support for history (you can set an environment variable or
   command-line option to save previous inputs in a file, and then click
   Up or Down to navigate through the history, like in Bash)
• And filename completion.

However, the two main features of xprompt are the description-matching
mode (activated with -d) and contextual completion (always active), both
of which are described in the README and the manual.
