Greetings openboxers!

I am delighted to announce a new release of obconf.  This release
(1.6) includes many new features, which are listed below:

  1. Unbreak obconf
  2. Compile with the -export-dynamic LDFLAG (See 1.)

Yes, obconf will now close when you click the close button.  Thanks
very much to Javeed Shaikh (syscrash2k), Shaun Jones (LostSon) and
nightm4re from #openbox for their combined efforts in tracking down
the fix to this infamous bug.

You can download the release here:

I have also constructed a web page for obconf here:

This release is based on the obconf 1.5 sources.  Another release
should follow shortly incorporating the changes that were made in CVS
before disappeared.

Any bugs can be reported at  You can also
contact me as Safari_Al in #openbox.

Thanks and enjoy!
  - Tim
