aewm is a minimalist window manager for X11. It has no nifty features, but is light on resources and extremely simple in appearance.

It should eventually make a good reference implementation of the ICCCM. A few separate programs are included to handle running programs, switching between windows, etc.

aewm was based on 9wm, which has also inspired lwm, larswm, and w9wm. It has in turn inspired the following window managers:

Sapphire/aewm++ (defunct?)
alloywm
evilwm
maewm (defunct?)
Oroborus
phluid
swm
Clementine
WindowLab
YeahWM
Spook (defunct?)
wimpwm

Some other minimal WMs worth checking out are:

wm2
wmii (no relation!)
PLWM
YAWM (defunct?)
ratpoison
Anarchy
Ion

What's New in This Release:

· UTF-8 support was added, and various EWMH bugs were fixed.
