    • fix build failure for non-debug configurations
    • several manpage updates

    Known issues: some Gnome icons that are "hidden" actually create a window that is detected and embedded by stalonetray. Such icons appear as empty spaces in the tray. Applications that are known to behave this way are gnome-power-manager and gpk-update-icon.

    New major release 0.8.0. New features/notable changes:

    • Remote control. Now it is possible to execute clicks on icons windows from command line. See documentation on --remote-click option for more info
    • Support for window struts EWMH property: now maximized windows do not cover stalonetray window. See documentation on --window-strut option for more info.
    • In addition to --icon-size which defines default icon size, now there is also a --slot-size which defines size of slot containing an icon.
    • Initial and maximal tray window dimensions are now specified in slot_size multiples
    • Scrollbars: now tray window has extra border, which user can click on to scroll icon area. This means that one can have fixed-size tray window (useful when it is swallowed by FvwmButtons). See documentation on --scrollbars option for more info. This feature is experimental.
    • Semi-ugly support for WindowMaker dockapp mode. See documentation on --dockapp-mode option for more info.

    Notable fixes:

    • Build fix for NetBSD.
    • Fix EWMH window type support.

    Some command line and configuration file options were deprecated, see DEPRECATIONS section of manpage for more info.
