xmonad-contrib : third party extensions to the xmonad window manager
http://xmonad.org
You need the ghc compiler and xmonad window manager installed in
order to use these extensions.
For installation and configuration instructions, please see the
xmonad website, the documents included with the xmonad source
distribution, and online haddock documentation:
http://www.xmonad.org/xmonad-docs

Changelogs
For a list of changes since the 0.8.x releases, see:
http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Xmonad/Notable_changes_since_0.8
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Updates to XMonadContrib-0.9 that may Require Changes to ~/.xmonad/xmonad.hs
Please see the Changelogs and xmonad-contrib haddock documentation
links for further details regarding the following changes.
* XMonad.Hooks.EwmhDesktops no longer uses layoutHook, the
ewmhDesktopsLayout modifier has been removed from xmonad-contrib. It
uses logHook, handleEventHook, and startupHook instead and provides
a convenient function 'ewmh' to add EWMH support to a defaultConfig.
* Most DynamicLog users can continue with configs unchanged, but users
of the quickbar functions 'xmobar' or 'dzen' will need to change
xmonad.hs: their types have changed to allow easier composition with
other XConfig modifiers. The 'dynamicLogDzen' and 'dynamicLogXmobar'
functions have been removed.
* WindowGo or safeSpawn users may need to change command lines due to
safeSpawn changes.
* People explicitly referencing the "SP" scratchpad workspace should
change it to "NSP" which is also used by the new Util.NamedScratchpad.
* (Optional) People who explicitly use swapMaster in key or mouse
bindings should change it to shiftMaster. It's the current default
used where swapMaster had been used previously. It works better than
swapMaster when using floating and tiled windows together on the
same workspace.
