CHANGELOG: Add hystorical releases

For each release, the date it taken from the corresponding
git tag; the one exception is 2.4.0, where the tag was created
months after the commit it points to.

Information about releases is taken from [1] and minimally
edited to work in the new context, along with being fixed when

While every single release from 1.0.0 onwards is now accounted
for, several of them lack detailed information: tracking
existing release notes about them or writing them from scratch
is left as an exercise to the reader.

comply with the request.

isn't a relative/absolute pathname to, then attempts to
load a 32-bit version for 32-bit programs. This produces an error message.
The solution is to either build and install a 32-bit or use
an absolute/relative path so that only loads for 64-bit
* Update OSX Makefile.
spectrwm 2.4.0
Released on Nov 15, 2013
spectrwm 2.3.0
Released on Apr 29, 2013

is less than boundary_width distance beyond the edge.
* Added new boundary_width configuration option. Disable the 'soft boundary'
behavior by setting this option to 0.
* Added ability to set tile_gap to negative values. This makes it possible for
tiled windows to overlap. Set to the opposite of border_width to collapse
* Fixed floating window stacking order issue on multiple-region setups.
* Fixed crash on maprequest when WM_CLASS name and/or instance isn't set.
* Fixed positioning issue on flipped layouts with a multi-column/row stack.

- NOFOCUSONMAP: Don't change focus to the window when it gets mapped on the
- FOCUSONMAP_SINGLE: When the window is mapped, change focus if it is the
only mapped window on the workspace using the quirk entry.
* New ws_next_move and ws_prev_move bindings to send a window to the next/prev
workspace and switch to the workspace.
* Fix fullscreen layout stacking issue when running with multiple regions.

the keyboard.

still supported.
