Deepin Window Manager
Description: Default window manager for Deepin.
This project started as a fork of Elementary Gala which is a window & compositing manager based on libmutter. But we rewrote most of the code to make it works well with Deepin Desktop Environment, such as redesign the UI for window switching, enhance user experience for the workspace preview mode, support multiple backgrounds, and many of other changes.
