GNOME 2. 2.8.4 is an unstable release of metacity.
What's changed ?
This release features a number of bug fixes, and also the
disabling of the focus-stealing-prevention code (hard code freeze

Thanks to Havoc Pennington, Soeren Sandmann, Elijah Newren, and
Rich Wareham for fixes in this release.

Move wireframe code before grab is released to prevent endless
loops with fullscreen windows. (Soeren)
Make dialogs that Metacity shows follow

add render extension check to the display, don't build the
compositing manager by default, use an ARGB visual when available

maintainer when I released software. Since releases take a while,
volunteering to make them for the maintainer can reduce their load.
I'm merely trying to help out by doing that. I am not the

Thanks to everyone who contributed (especially anyone I forgot
to name). GNOME Applets is now is code freeze until the branch for
2.9. This means that only release critical bugs will be fixed.
Please check for duplicates before filing bugs, but don't simply
assume that someone else has filed it. Translators and documenters
should be aware that they may of course continue working on GNOME
Applets, and are uneffected by the freeze.
