Hello everyone!

There have been many, many bugfixes since 3.5.1; some of those bugs
were critical, some were annoying, and some were rather subtle. To
share the joy, we decided to pack together a new release, 3.6. Here's
the first candidate:


Check it out while it's still hot! Those are the changes from the
release of 3.5.1:

        * the floating layer is finally almost usable:
          - moving the mouse cursor over a floating frame does not
            raise it automatically anymore.
          - windows can now be moved off-screen (but not completely,
            we don't want to lose them!)
        * moving frames in the managed layer now works too. You even
          can swap frames with the mouse. Try it, and report whether you
          like it!
        * GTK drag'n'drop is now working again
        * the bar is now resized on font change
        * fixed some serious bugs concerning tagging
        * a SIGCHLD handler has been added, no more zombie wmiirc's
        * the clients are now addressed in the 9P filesystem via their
          X11 window id: handy in combination with tools like xcompmgr!
        * some new events had been introduced: DestroyClient,
          CreateColumn, ColumnFocus, FocusFloating, DestroyColumn

Most changes were contributed by Daniel Wäber and Kris Maglione this
time. Thanks Daniel, and welcome back, Kris!

As you will immediately notice, borders around bar items have been
brought back. With the default colour scheme it's rather ugly, isn't it?
For this reason, we would love to see suggestions for a nicer theme that
can cope with bar borders :)

We hope you will enjoy it!

For those of you who are annoyed by the borders around bar labels,
here's a little hack to get the border-less behaviour back:
Add two new variables, e.g. WMII_BAR_SEL and WMII_BAR_NORM, and set
them to the colour tuples of WMII_SELCOLORS and WMII_NORMCOLORS
respectively, except that you set the last colour to the same as the
second. Then make lines 137 and 139 say WMII_BAR_SEL/WMII_BAR_NORM
instead of the old variables.
