- └────────────────────────────┘
-
-This is i3 v4.12. This version is considered stable. All users of i3 are
-strongly encouraged to upgrade.
-
-If cairo ≥ 1.14.4 is available, i3 and i3bar will use cairo for rendering
-(instead of raw X11 drawing primitives). While this is currently optional,
-having cairo ≥ 1.14.4 will be a hard requirement in future release.
-
-This release contains a good number of detail improvements and fixes.

- ┌────────────────────────────┐
- │ Changes in i3 v4.12 │

- • i3bar: use cairo for all drawing operations
- • i3bar: support per-statusblock border and background colors
- • i3bar: support different bar background colors depending on whether the bar
- is on the focused output or not
- • i3bar: multiple tray_output directives on the same bar are now supported
- • i3bar: support disabling the modifier by specifying “modifier none”
- • use cairo for all drawing operations
- • fix a number of memory leaks, thanks to AddressSanitizer
- • no_focus is now suppressed for the first window of a workspace
- • “workspace next/prev” now looks for numbered workspaces after reaching the
- last workspace (it used to incorrectly only look at named workspaces)
- • multiple marks can now be set on a single window (but a mark can still only
- be present on one window at a time)
- • the “unmark” command now supports criteria
- • the “con_id” criterion now supports the special value __focused__
- • the “workspace” command now supports the --no-auto-back-and-forth parameter

- in the same direction
- • support _NET_WM_USER_TIME’s special 0 value, indicating that a window
- should not be focused
- • use 32-bit visual by default if available. This reduces graphical glitches
- when using transparency (which is still not officially supported)

- • specifying invalid match criteria now results in an error instead of
- blindly applying the operation to the currently focused window
- • allow mouse bindings to run on the root window

- • the “split” command now has a “toggle” option
- • the additional color class “decoration_border” was added
- • title_format is now stored on containers instead of windows, allowing the
- use of title_format on split containers
- • On OpenBSD, i3 now uses pledge(2)
- • support _NET_WM_DESKTOP (for pager applications like gnome-panel)
- • floating workspaces are no longer available (they were not supported for a
- while now)
- • floating windows now carry the I3_FLOATING_WINDOW atom so that tools like
- compositors can be configured to match on floating windows
-
- ┌────────────────────────────┐
- │ Bugfixes │
- └────────────────────────────┘
-
- • i3bar: display short text only on the monitor(s) on which it is necessary
- • i3bar: explicitly set cursor using libxcb-cursor if available
- • i3bar: fix XEMBED messages
- • i3-nagbar: explicitly set cursor using libxcb-cursor if available

- other(s) use(s) bindsym
- • keymap fallback for servers without XKB (e.g. TightVNC) has been added
- • using pango markup in mode names is now optional, fixing a regression in i3
- v4.11 where modes which contained characters such as “<” would break.
- • moving windows to a workspace by specifying a mark now works
- • the root output is now used when any RandR request fails (for x2go)
- • assignments are now marked as run before executing them, preventing endless
- loops/crashes when assignments cause another assignment evaluation
- • splitting/floating a dock container no longer crashes i3
- • correctly compare modifier mask when identifying keybindings (fixes
- bindings which use --release)
- • no longer fail config validation when there is no newline at the end of
- the config file
- • scrollwheel buttons are now only grabbed when necessary, allowing the use
- of “bindsym button*” or scrolling in windows without focusing them (in case
- no “bindsym button*” is present)
- • parse con_id in base 16 (affected FreeBSD only)
- • fix crash when opening a large number of windows
- • reject empty swallow definitions to avoid crashes
- • don’t remove SubstructureRedirect event mask temporarily (fixes i3bar
- stopping after system suspend)
- • move urgent flag before killing the parent to avoid a crash
- • correctly validate “kill” command to avoid crashing when “kill” is invoked
- on workspace containers
- • actually accept the documented “workspace” token as an alternative to “→”
- in assign statements
- • remove _NET_WM_STATE on withdrawn windows to comply with the spec
- • the “border” command now uses logical pixels (relevant for hi-dpi displays)
- • “tray_output primary” does not properly fall back and hence was removed
- from the default config again
- • correctly determine focused workspace when moving workspace to output
- • revert to default binding mode before reloading the config file

+ │ Release notes for i3 v4.13 │
+ └────────────────────────────┘
+
+This is i3 v4.13. This version is considered stable. All users of i3 are
+strongly encouraged to upgrade.
+
+For users, there are two changes to be aware of:
+
+1. The X server DPI is read from the Xft.dpi X resource (if available).
+ Previously, i3 used to directly look at the X server’s DPI (based on screen
+ resolution and physical size). Looking at Xft.dpi is more consistent with
+ other software, more likely to be correct (because it’s user-specified and
+ not read from possibly broken hardware information) and allows users to
+ override the value.
+
+2. It is now possible to set config file variables from X resources using the
+ “set_from_resource” directive. This allows users to have a single source of
+ truth for e.g. theming X11 applications (specify “*color0: #121212” and have
+ it apply to URxvt and your i3 config).
+
+For packagers, there are three changes that likely require action:
+
+1. cairo/pango are now required dependencies, as announced in the i3 v4.12
+ release notes.
+
+2. The aforementioned “set_from_resource” feature requires the new dependency
+ libxcb-util-xrm.
+
+3. i3 now uses the GNU build system (autotools). Please see
+ https://github.com/i3/i3/commit/4a52a7e9fb6fb2e1f0256b2e086cfa313f411cd8 for
+ a lot more details about the rationale and what this means for your package.
+ Bottomline, things should get simpler for you, though :).
+
+ ┌────────────────────────────┐
+ │ Changes in i3 v4.13 │
+ └────────────────────────────┘
+
+ • build: wire up version handling for non-release tarballs (as opposed to git
+ checkouts)
+ • build: switch to the GNU build system
+ • i3bar: disable pango markup for plain-text input
+ • man/i3-msg: point out default ipc message type
+ • config: introduce support for specifying variables from X resources
+ • config: ensure variables match on longest-length, eliminating problems
+ where one variable was a prefix of another
+ • config: do not count '\' in comment lines as line continuation
+ • ipc: introduce a new GET_BINDING_MODES command
+ • ipc: implement new window::mark event
+ • ipc: add “output” to IPC events referencing a container
+ • make fullscreen windows open on the output which is indicated by their
+ geometry (fixes LibreOffice Impress multi-monitor presentations)
+ • focus newly managed windows only if they don’t use the globally active
+ input mode (fixes issues with RubyMine)
+ • remove title indentation in nested containers (rationale was unclear,
+ nobody spoke up when we asked about the feature on i3-discuss)
+ • use the last known timestamp when calling xcb_set_input_focus (might fix
+ rare race conditions in focus handling)
+ • introduce the “smart” option for hide_edge_borders, which will hide borders
+ when there is precisely one window on the workspace
+ • handle _MOTIF_WM_HINTS changes (_MOTIF_WM_HINTS were previously only
+ considered when managing a new window)
+ • don’t change border style if BS_NORMAL is requested in _MOTIF_WM_HINTS
+ • only add numlock fallback for keybindings where necessary (allows users to
+ correctly bind keys on the numpad)
+ • do not match docks in config and command criteria
+ • get DPI from the Xft.dpi resource instead of directly looking at the screen
+ resolution/size
+ • handle _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW for scratchpad windows (for pagers)
+ • set _NET_WM_DESKTOP to sticky for scratchpad windows
+ • add new criteria “tiling” and “floating”
+ • implement special output name “current” for commands
+ • handle ResizeRequests for tray clients (fixes VLC tray icon)
+
+ ┌────────────────────────────┐
+ │ Bugfixes │
+ └────────────────────────────┘
+
+ • i3bar: fix crash when the I3SOCK environment variable is present
+ • i3-dmenu-desktop: do not die on failed open

+ • i3-input: properly position in non-standard cases (fixes an issue where
+ i3-input would launch off-screen)
+ • i3-save-tree: rename “mark” to “marks” to reflect our recent change to
+ allow multiple marks
+ • mouse bindings: only grab the mouse buttons that need to be grabbed
+ • no_focus: correctly count the number of windows (makes no_focus work with
+ tabbed/stacked workspace layouts).
+ • properly close disabled outputs restored during a restart (this fixes state
+ handling when RandR changes happen during i3 restarts)
+ • don’t trigger bindings on window border clicks unless --border was
+ specified for the binding
+ • traverse numbered workspaces in correct order
+ • fix transition from named to numbered workspaces in “workspace next|prev”
+ • avoid setting urgency hint on content containers and above (fixes crashes)
+ • don’t trigger unrelated key bindings for --release bindings
+ • fix colormap handling for containers (fixes taking screenshots using xwd)
+ • check output crossing on ENTER_NOTIFY to dockarea (fixes pointer jumping)
+ • fix a use-after-free bug (fixes “floating enable” on single split windows)
