Version 0.6.9:
Bugfix Release (the last for 0.6).
- Update fvwm-menu-desktop2, FvwmForm-MultiMenuHelp2 and their French and Spanish translation to last upstream changes.
- Fix colorset bug in Air, Ambience and Tribal which ends up in an empty FvwmIdent (thanks for the patches from bstrik :-) ).
- Fix bug in fns-start-programs that comments (with # infront) creating errors
- Add CTRL + left Windows key anywhere to open Desktop menu.
- Fix bugs in FuncWriteInfoStoreToFileAndSet and FuncWriteSetEnvToFileAndSet that strings with space get cut and therefore .settings get corrupted.
- Exchange blutooth-applet with bluemon-applet because it doesn't exist in Gnome3 anymore.
- Add support for hald, upower and systemd to FuncSuspend/FuncHibernate

Version 0.6.8:
Bugfix and Enhancement Release.
- Works now with FVWM 2.6.5 without loosing new Xdg menu support from CVS version.
- Own XDG applications menu with their own directory files.
- Revised fvwm-menu-desktop GUI with help windows for each configuration section.
- Feature 'smart maximize' - moves and resizes a current window to the largest free area of a desktop/page.

- Right click menu for Conky clock and CPU applet in panel to restart them on error.

Version 0.6.7:
Bugfix and Enhancement Release.
- Enhanced uninstall routine for generic installation - an install list will be created, so keeping the sources of the installed version never needed anymore.
- It is now possible to install Fvwm-Nightshade locally if the user hasn't root rights. Good for testing. ^^
- Also an installation without the login file can be done if no display-manger is available.
- We have exchanged Esetroot with feh because of the poor availability of eterm package in different distribution repositories.

Version 0.6.6:
Bugfix Release with 2 nice improvements. Now the application menu settings are set by default because it was not easy to know what must set to get the menus available in the Root menu. Also the annoying flipping of the Global Iconman is fixed now.

- Add localization support for German, French and Spanish
- Add Tab cycling in both directions with Alt-Tab (forward) and Alt-Shift-Tab (backwards)

Thanks for this amazing theme (or better, environment) is so fast, easy to use, and beautiful that I tried it out in Manjaro openrc (my second linux) and I liked it so much that now is installed even in my main system with Slackware. Thanks again and congrats for this excellent work.
