Hi all,

I tried out the snap today and there are some things I like to mention.

1. I really enjoy focus-follows-mouse, but as mentioned before, the window
   should only rise when clicking on it.

2. I had one problem with an older snap (20060324), which still is there.
   When I resize or move a window with $MODKEY+ mouse, sometimes wmii stays
   in this "resize/move" mode. After pressing $MODKEY again, everything is
   ok. This happens quiet often. Does anyone else have the same problem?

3. I realized, that $MODKEY+Tab for cycling through clients has left. I think
   it was very usefull, when working with the mouse, because you can switch to
   another client with the left hand very fast, without leaving right hand
   from the mouse.

That's it. In general I really like the direction wmii is developing,

so far
