Thanks very much! This is actually very useful to know, since I have been considering using these patches. I was wondering if any of the features in those patches will eventually come into fvwm. Rounded borders for windows, translucent menus and the hover patches are the ones I am most interested in. Many thanks again! Best wishes, Ranjan
