xmonad-extras 0.13.4 released

July 28, 2018

In the previous release of xmonad-extras-0.13.3, Giovani Silva added support for Intel brightness control plugin. I have been using that in my laptop and have been happy with it.

The new xmonad-extras 0.13.4 release is basically based on my own refinements on top of it. The notable changes are:

sibiStartupHook :: X ()
sibiStartupHook = do
  as <- io getArgs
  Bright.setBrightness 1260

Unfortunately, this version still doesn’t work with the latest GHC because of an pending upstream release.
