xmonad-extras 0.13.4 releasedJuly 28, 2018
The new xmonad-extras 0.13.4 release is basically based on my own refinements on top of it. The notable changes are:
- Previously, you need to pass cabal flag to enable the plugin. I have enabled it by default now. Also, it now supports older version of ghc till 7.10.3. I specifically had to remove the usage of bitraverse function for it.
- Added a new convienence function named
setBrightnessin the module. I specifically use this in my Xmonad’s startup hook:
sibiStartupHook :: X () = do sibiStartupHook <- io getArgs as 1260 Bright.setBrightness ... ...
- Have improved documentation on how to use the plugin. The new documentation is accessible via the Haddock documentation in the module. Specifically, I use it with systemd to make it properly work.
Unfortunately, this version still doesn’t work with the latest GHC because of an pending upstream release.
