  - Panel: by popular demand, the old struts behavior with autohide has been restored (issue #619);
    if you encounter applications that interact poorly with it,
	you might have better luck with strut_policy = minimum,
	if that does not work, you will have to turn off autohide.

    - If no user tooltip is set, displays the script standard error as tooltip.
      Tooltip is multiline, can be cleared with the VT100 clear screen sequence, in shell: (>&2 echo -en "\033[2J").
      Long tooltips are truncated to 4096 characters.

- Dropping "0." from the version number and no longer using semver ("Breaking.Feature.Fix").
  - Tint2 will always strive to be backwards compatible with respect to the configuration format.
  - Very few configurations changes have been broken between 2010 (0.10) - 2017 (0.14);
    in all cases they were minor options that caused incorrect behavior,
    and the changes were described better by "Feature" or "Fix".
  - Practically all releases starting from 0.10 have been very stable,
    so there is no point in staying in "0." anymore.
  - But I don't want the project to get stuck in "1." forever.
  - The new versioning scheme is the following:
    - Version numbers will have the format "Feature.Fix", where:
      - "Feature" is increased when significant new features are added.
      - "Fix" is increased for bugfixes or minor changes.
    - 0.14.6 will be followed by 15.0.

- Major changes (see details below):
  - Icon cache and lazy icon theme loading to improve performance in tint2 and tint2conf
  - Extra tint2rc themes are installed to /usr/share/tint2 and available in tint2conf
  - Tint2conf GUI improvements
- Config options with changed behavior:
  - The launcher now also allows launcher_item_app entries without a full path.
159 160 161 162 163
    In this case the .desktop file is searched in the standard application directories (issue #565).
  - If the panel size is given as a percentage and a non-zero margin is also specified,
    the size is now computed as a fraction of the available size (i.e. monitor size - margin).
    Before it was computed as a fraction of the monitor size first, then the margin was subtracted from the value, which
    was not intuitive (issue #559).

  - Launcher icon paths are now cached, which greatly improves loading time for tint2 and tint2conf.
    The correct icon should be found even if you change the icon theme or install a new theme.
    If this is not the case, delete the file ~/.cache/tint2/icon.cache, restart tint2 and please file a bug report
    indicating the application name and the icon theme name.
  - Fallback icon themes are loaded lazily to speed up tint2 and tint2conf startup
  - A better Name and GenericName is used in the tint2 and tint2conf .desktop files

  - Tint2 is now able to dump a stack trace to stderr and ~/.tint2-crash.log in case of a crash.
    If the cmake flag ENABLE_BACKTRACE is set, stack traces are dumped on X11 I/O errors.
    If the cmake flag ENABLE_BACKTRACE_ON_SIGNAL is set, stack traces are dumped also on signals such as SIGSEGV.
    Both ENABLE_BACKTRACE and ENABLE_BACKTRACE_ON_SIGNAL are disabled by default.

- Note: the changes listed here are based on the previous release tint2 0.11, however some distributions (e.g. Debian)
  offered packages using newer commits and/or patches; thus from the user's perspective some of these features are

- Config options with changed behavior:
  - Panel:
    - panel_dock: previously, 'panel_dock = 1' was actually not placing the panel into the dock. This option now
      functions correctly. Due to the fact that OpenBox forcefully draws a border around dock windows, you might want to
      set it to zero (or change the border color/style to match tint2). If you set it to zero, make sure you do not have
      reserved space at the edge of the screen in the OpenBox config.
      Reason for change: issues 257, 394, 461, 465, 481.

332 333 334
    - panel_layer: previously, 'panel_layer = normal' was not functioning correctly. Now it does (it requires panel_dock = 0).
      Note that in this case some compositors will draw shadows of other windows behind tint2. This can be avoided in compton
      using the option shadow-exclude-reg = "x35+0-0" where 35 should be replaced with the size of the panel.
335 336 337 338
    - font_shadow: shadows are thicker and softer, and are now applied to all text elements, not just the taskbar.
      Reason for change: legibility improved for transparent panels.
  - Launcher:
    - launcher_item_app: now it expands leading ~ to the path to the user's home directory.

- Bugfixes:
  - task switching from tint2 using the mouse wheel (mouse_scroll_up = prev_task and mouse_scroll_down = next_task) with
    multiple desktops and taskbar_mode = multi_desktop when hovering over the first/last window in the taskbar was broken;
    also when a window is set to appear on all desktops;
  - the launcher was not loading an icon if the icon theme was not providing it in a size close to the value of launcher_icon_size;
  - the launcher was not loading an icon if the extension was incorrect (e.g. file contents were PNG but the file name
    had extension SVG);
  - some launcher icons (PNG files saved with an indexed colormap and alpha mask) were sometimes rendered with white instead of
    transparency;
  - icons looked washed out when the panel was very transparent;
  - the panel border was rendered in the background of every systray icon; sometimes systray icons were rendered in the
    background of other icons;
  - a crash caused by a change that prevents Google Chrome (and possibly other misbehaving applications) from leaving a large
    number of empty icons in the system tray;

  - the panel window had a shadow;
  - some ATI drivers return an extra monitor with size zero which should be ignored when using panel_monitor = all;
  - the battery applet was sometimes working incorrectly with certain laptop models (the battery applet stopped updating after
    suspend with the battery unplugged);
  - crashed caused by incomplete or malformed config files;
  - with the fvwm window manager, the window title was sometimes not displayed correctly if it changed right after an
    application was started;
  - seconds were not updating in the clock;
  - tint2 hang triggered when an application started from the launcher was closed and startup notifications were enabled;

2009-06-24
- vertical panel done
  user's parameters :
  1) add 'vertical' to panel_position (panel_position = center left vertical)
  2) use 'task_width' to define the task height (task_width = 30)
  3) adjust paddingy on task and systray wiil define the size of icons
  all others parameters are automatically converted by tint2
  (x padding become y padding, width become height ...)
  so user's change between horizontal and vertical are minimised.

  keep compatibility with old tintrc files
