Current:        2008/05/27 - First version

I like this little window manager now that I tried it. Could you include the libfltk.so.1.1 library in a flwm extension that could be used on previous DSL versions?  I am using it on DSL 4.2.5 now, and I think it would nice for folks to be able to use this wm easily in any DSL version.

EDIT:  Working nicely in DSL 1.1 also.

Good point Jason! But rather than adding fltk.so in the flwm extension, I'd rather have it as a separate extension of its own.

This way, alll future extensions that make use of the FLTK toolkit (as shared libs) could work as-is on DSL 4.4+ and would also work on previous DSL version with the extra requirement of loading the FTLK extension first.

I'll create this extension tonight when I'm back home.

I think there are fltk.dsl and .unc extensions in testing already.

They only have the static lib, as fltk only builds it by default

Thanks also florian! I really like this window manager, it's fast, easy to use, and leaves a lot of vertical space on the screen, which is highly important to me (for web browsing, it's perfect!).
