Window Manager Spec v. 1.0 now available
Author: JT Smith
From a gnome-announce post at LWN.net: "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."
