+ - we were making all dialogs skip the taskbar, even non-transient
+ ones, though this was supposedly fixed a while ago. Now really
+ fixed.
+ - change back to Alt+click by default for the window drag feature.
+ - assign Alt+F12 to shade window
+ - fix not deleting enough workspaces when the number
+ was reduced via the pager config dialog (readams@hmc.edu)
+ - don't allow windows under the top panel ever, even if they
+ are tall windows (Arvind)
+ - fix up the window layout for directional workspace nav,
+ so you always stop at the edges and always end up
+ where you expect (hp, with tweaks from readams@hmc.edu)
+ - focus new windows in mouse focus mode (readams@hmc.edu)
+ - support xeyes, oclock, etc. by applying shape mask
+ to the window manager frame (yeah it resizes slow, deal)
+ - fix vertical/horizontal maximize
+ - handle crossing events resizing for more opaque resize goodness
+ (Soeren)
+ - add wacky _METACITY_UPDATE_COUNTER experimental extension
+ to do nice opaque resizing (does nothing without a GTK patch)
+ - fix a crash setting workspace names
+ - fix internationalized WM_NAME reading

+HOW TO ADD EXTERNAL FEATURES
+===
+
+You can write a metacity "plugin" such as a pager, window list, icon
+box, task menu, or even things like "window matching" using the
+Extended Window Manager Hints. See http://www.freedesktop.org for the
+EWMH specification. An easy-to-use library called "libwnck" is
+available that uses the EWMH and is specifically designed for writing

+You might be interested in existing accessories such as "Devil's Pie"

+EWMH-compliant WMs).
