"On behalf of freedesktop.org, the GNOME Project, and the KDE Project,
I'm happy to announce that version 1.0 of the freedesktop.org extended
window manager hints specification (EWMHS) is now available. This
document specifies extensions to the Inter-Client Communication
Conventions Manual (ICCCM) which allow desktop environments to
implement features such as pagers, task lists, or full-color icons via
communication with the window manager." The announcement is at LWN.net.
