New minor version
Upstream still shows the latest version as 1.4.2. Marking invalid.
What site are you using for upstream?
The latest released version is 1.5.4 (2019-04-23). Compared to version 1.4.2 (2017-07-30), this release contains many bugfixes, many portability fixes and updated translations. A new quickswitch, new hotkeys, new focus behavior FocusCurrentWorkspace, new theme option TaskbuttonIconOffset which is used in theme Outside-ice, SVG support for gdk-pixbuf. Change focus model without restart. Change preferences via menus. Improved locating and loading of icons. Extended window list menus. Switch windows of same class. Monitoring applet options. MouseWinLower hotkey. Omit borders for shaped applications. Shuffle and cycle backgrounds periodically. A new website ice-wm.org. Quickswitch can be either horizontal or vertical. Easily change focus or workspaces by mouse wheel. A gui to select RandR settings. A new compliant menu generator. The monitoring applets require a lot less processor time. The improved system tray supports more applications. Mailbox monitoring was overhauled and now supports TLS/SSL connections to POP and IMAP servers, Gmail and Maildirs. Support for 32-bit visuals and compositing managers was added. The order of buttons and icons on taskbar, tray bar and system tray is now fully configurable. Many new manual pages have been written and documentation is fully updated. The addressbar now has a recallable history of previous commands. PagerShowPreview is now the default. IceWM now supports _NET_WM_PING, _NET_REQUEST_FRAME_EXTENTS, _NET_WM_STATE_FOCUSED and _NET_WM_WINDOW_OPACITY protocols. Support for sounds on guievents was updated.
What we have in the book is
which is not the same as
At https://ice-wm.org/versions.html there are links to all of the 1.5 series (and a list of earlier releases with no links). But the main page there says it is now maintained at github, with the link we have been using, and that only has 1.4.2 as the current release.
BUT - the issues tab there has as its second item "icewm 1.5.3 error: use of overloaded operator '' is ambiguous" (related to using clang on 32-bit architectures). It seems the developer (same github username) has put the 1.5 releases at https://github.com/ice-wm/icewm
Looks as if this is legitimate (icewm lists disappeared some time ago, I think a new maintainer stepped up after the previous maintainer went missing).
It seems the developer moved to the official IceWM repository for releases and changes, rather than a personal one.
Fixed at revision 21530.
