Hi fellow AfterSteppers

I'd like to let you know that we have released new(1.8.10) version of sta=
ble=20
tree of the AfterStep. This particular version incorporates several=20
features that has been asked for for quite sometime - namely better multi=
head=20
support.

Basically both Xinerama support and multihead support with independant=20
screens has been improved.

1. Xinerama support :=20
Windows will not longer be placed inbetween the screens, unless user move=
s it=20
there.
If asetroot is requested to scale root background, it will scale it to th=
e=20
size of the first screen - not entire xinerama desktop.

2. Independant screens :
Ability to have different configurations/backgrounds per screen has been=20
added.
Firstly, you can now have different InitFunction/REstartFunction for each=
=20
screen, thus you can start different modules with different configuration=
s on=20
each screen.

Secondly, you can now have different Feel, Look and Root background
for each screen.=20
Just choose desired Feel/Look/Background from menu while on the specific=20
screen. The only modification needed in config files is that=20
for asetroot to be able to pick up backgrounds on screens other then firs=
t=20
one, in asteroot config background should be named like that :

    Use 0 "~/GNUstep/Library/AfterStep/non-configurable/0_background.scr1=
"

Note .scr1 at the end of the filename!

I've attached my asetroot and autoexec for those who are interested.

There are some other minor fixes/improvements in this release, most notab=
le=20
one is enchancement of WindowsDesk function in feel - it can now move win=
dows=20
to previous/next desk, instead of specific desk number.
(see man page for more)

Please give it a try if any of the above features are of interest to you,=
 and=20
let me know if there is anything you want to be changed/added.

Thanks alot for your support.
