I've recently upgraded my Linux to redhat5.2 - and along with it to
Afterstep-1.5-0.7. I like the new appearance very much, but to my (bad)
suprise some features weren't working... First, my square (3x4) wharf
became straight one column, then all the x,y,zpager vanished from it...
As always I did what I should: rtfm. This is what I got:

<quote>
6.10 Can I have two columns in my Wharf?
Yes, in version 1.5. Use WharfColumns. WharfColumns was broken, but it's
fixed now.
<end quote>

well, not really - for me it stopped working at all...


Another thing I've lost and really hurts is:

EdgeScroll 3 3
EdgeResistance 0 0

from my feel file doesn't work anymore - it was really a VERY pleasant
screen scroller...


A VERY ugly bug: When you have a window set to 'Always To Front' in the
middle of your screen and you click quit... ouch, it hurts. The 'quitform
hides behind the window and everything (the very window too) becomes
inactive so you can't get the quitform to front... All you can do is to
kill X using virtual console (alt+f2 or sth like that)


I really hated (like some users from old FAQ) the structure
~/GNUstep/Library/Afterstep so I moved the contents of the Afterstep
directory to the GNUstep and replaced Library and Afterstep with symbolic
links to .
Tell me whether the sollution I use can be dangerous?
(so far it works fine)

Another thing is I use my screen in a pretty high resolution. In result
for the background image I use xpm file of 2 mb size. The same image in
jpg takes about 300k, so it's real waste of diskspace... I tried using
xsetbg which worked fine for one screen unfortunately after changing the
desktop with pager the background was lost... :( - Is it possible to
use jpg images (+ stretch option) or external background setting programs
with pager ?

Anyway, even with all the problems it causes Afterstep is the best windows
manager I know... that's why I use it :)
