  394. ======
  395. * Better shadows: [Owen]
  396. - Shadows can be different for different window types and focus states
  397. - Shadows are larger by default, especially for the currently active
  398. window
  399. - Shadows for attached modal dialogs and menus are drawn not to
  400. overlap the attachment point.
  401. - Shadows follow the shape of shaped windows
  402. * Optimization: [Owen]
  403. - Avoid repainting in situations when windows are potentially restacked
  404. but aren't actually restacked.
  405. - Pay attention to partial stage repaints in obscured window calculations
  406. - Better optimization of painting obscured shadows; turn off shadows
  407. for maximized windows.
  408. - Move background repainting into Muffin; doing it here rather than
  409. in plugins allows not painting obscured parts of the background.
  410. * A new frame type 'attached' is added for attached modal dialogs
  411. and can be referenced in theme files with a theme version of 3.2.
  412. * Fix updating key bindings when the keyboard layout changes

  1941. 2.13.2
  1942. ==
  1943. This release just contains a merge of all the changes on the
  1944. constraints_experiments branch.
  1945. Thanks to Havoc Pennington for reviewing the gargantuan patch and
  1946. suggesting lots of little fixes for making it better, to Rob Adams and
  1947. Soeren Sandmann for grilling me on how some of the difficult internals work
  1948. -- allowing me to improve the documentation, to Olav Vitters for finding an
  1949. easy-to-fix crasher bug in early testing and for repeatedly extending my
  1950. deadline for switching from working on Metacity to Bugzilla, to Ray Strode
  1951. for finding two crashers and fixing one of them in early testing, to Bryan
  1952. Clark for usability advice, to Davyd Madeley and Christian Kellner for
  1953. testing Xinerama stuff, to Sebastien Bacher for packaging an early version
  1954. and finding some obscure bugs (that I unfortunately still can't duplicate
  1955. and will probably still need to fix once I can),
  1956. Bugs fixed:
  1957. unfiled - constraints.c is overly complicated[1]
  1958. unfiled - constraints.c is not robust when all constraints cannot
  1959. simultaneously be met (constraints need to be prioritized)
  1960. unfiled - keep-titlebar-onscreen constraint is decoration unaware (since
  1961. get_outermost_onscreen_positions() forgets to include
  1962. decorations)
  1963. unfiled - keyboard snap-moving and snap-resizing snap to hidden edges
  1964. 86644 - resize should have a shift option like move does
  1965. 109553 - gravity w/ simultaneous move & resize doesn't work
  1966. 113601 - maximize vertical and horizontal should toggle and be
  1967. constrained
  1968. 122196 - windows show up under vertical panels
  1969. 122670 - jerky/random resizing of window via keyboard[2]
  1970. 124582 - keyboard and mouse snap-resizing and snap-moving erroneously
  1971. moves the window multidimensionally
  1972. 136307 - don't allow apps to resize themselves off the screen (*cough*
  1973. filechooser *cough*)
  1974. 142016, 143784 - windows should not span multiple xineramas unless
  1975. placed there by the user
  1976. 143145 - clamp new windows to screensize and force them onscreen, if
  1977. they'll fit
  1978. 144126 - Handle pathological strut lists sanely[3]
  1979. 149867 - fixed aspect ratio windows are difficult to resize[4]
  1980. 152898 - make screen edges consistent; allow easy slamming of windows
  1981. into the left, right, and bottom edges of the screen too.
  1982. 154706 - bouncing weirdness at screen edge with keyboard moving or
  1983. resizing
  1984. 156699 - avoid struts when placing windows, if possible (nasty a11y
  1985. blocker)
  1986. 302456 - dragging offscreen too restrictive
  1987. 304857 - wireframe moving off the top of the screen is misleading
  1988. 308521 - make uni-directional resizing easier with alt-middle-drag and
  1989. prevent the occasional super annoying resize-the-wrong-side(s)
  1990. behavior
  1991. 312007 - snap-resize moves windows with a minimum size constraint
  1992. 312104 - resizing the top of a window can cause the bottom to grow
  1993. 319351 - don't instantly snap on mouse-move-snapping, remove
  1994. braindeadedness of having order of releasing shift and
  1995. releasing button press matter so much
  1996. [1] fixed in my opinion, anyway.
  1997. [2] Actually, it's not totally fixed--it's just annoying
  1998. instead of almost completely unusable. Matthias had a
  1999. suggestion that may fix the remainder of the problems (see
  2000. http://tinyurl.com/bwzuu).
  2001. [3] This bug was originally about not-quite-so-pathological
  2002. cases but was left open for the worse cases. The code from
  2003. the branch handles the remainder of the cases mentioned in
  2004. this bug.
  2005. [4] Actually, although it's far better there's still some minor
  2006. issues left: a slight drift that's only noticeable after
  2007. lots of resizing, and potential problems with partially
  2008. onscreen constraints due to not clearing any
  2009. fixed_directions flags (aspect ratio windows get resized in
  2010. both directions and thus aren't fixed in one of them)
  2011. New feature:
  2012. 81704 - edge resistance for user move and resize operations; in
  2013. particular 3 different kinds of resistance are implemented:
  2014. Pixel-Distance: window movement is resisted when it aligns with an
  2015. edge unless the movement is greater than a threshold number of
  2016. pixels
  2017. Timeout: window movement past an edge is prevented until a certain
  2018. amount of time has elapsed during the operation since the first
  2019. request to move it past that edge
  2020. Keyboard-Buildup: when moving or resizing with the keyboard, once a
  2021. window is aligned with a certain edge it cannot move past until the
  2022. correct direction has been pressed enough times (e.g. 2 or 3 times)
  2023. Major code changes:
  2024. - constraints.c has been rewritten; very few lines of code from the old
  2025. version remain. There is a comment near the top of the function
  2026. explaining the basics of how the new framework works. A more detailed
  2027. explanation can be found in doc/how-constraints-works.txt
  2028. - edge-resistance.[ch] are new files implementing edge-resistance.
  2029. - boxes.[ch] are new files containing low-level error-prone functions
  2030. used heavily in constraints.c and edge-resistance.c, among various
  2031. places throughout the code. testboxes.c contains a thorough testsuite
  2032. for the boxes.[ch] functions compiled into a program, testboxes.
  2033. - meta_window_move_resize_internal() *must* be told the gravity of the
  2034. associated operation (if it's just a move operation, the gravity will
  2035. be ignored, but for resize and move+resize the correct value is needed)
  2036. - the craziness of different values that
  2037. meta_window_move_resize_internal() accepts has been documented in a
  2038. large comment at the beginning of the function. It may be possible to
  2039. clean this up some, but until then things will remain as they were
  2040. before--caller beware.
  2041. - screen and xinerama usable areas (i.e. places not covered by
  2042. e.g. panels) are cached in the workspace now, as are the screen and
  2043. xinerama edges. These get updated with the workarea in
  2044. src/workspace.c:ensure_work_areas_validated()
