Application
===========

_______________________________________________

Here it is, continuing the fine tradition of non-working .0 releases...

Metacity-Setup 0.7.1 (The IRV in Alaska NOW release)

Description
===========

This program is simply a much easier way to configure 
Metacity then having to use gconftool or gconf-editor.  It 
allows you to change themes, focus settings, and the number 
of workspaces.

note:  I thought in honor of metacity-setup being mentioned on
gnomedesktop.org, I would name the release.  


Fixes
=====

-Metacity 2.4.0 support is _far_ more usable.
