known bugs (to me at least) - stand cvs from 27th of april 2007:
open bugs :
*firefox (exactly : iceweasel from debian stable) download manager pops into foreground at each download you start, even if you put it manually into the background solution around the problem: move firefox into higher layer while downloading files with firefox (download manager already open) -> note : find out who the fuck is doing evil things, and how all other wms handle this crappy behaviour of firefox *in startmenu empty folders are displayed, and only an empty frame is shown, no mater if unavailability of items is on or off *nested popups are not working -> this means : ex: popup2 definition is called from within popup1, but i only get a grayed out item anyway the use of popup needs to be cleared up !!! -> see monitor theme in AS ftp theme dir for an example *inherit(myframe & mystyle) only partially working (no multiple inherit) -> steps to reproduce : make multiple mystyles and inherit from each other, using most of pixmap,gradient,font, bg/fgcolor params at one time in a mystyle... note : this is not 100% verified -> until proof of contrairy this stays here *parsing bug in general as myframe options cannot be specified in arbitrary order -> see afStep theme in AS ftp *multiple iconboxes not possible (was in 1.8.11)
*asxml in general seems prone to 1pixel errors-for small size (<5 pixels) i seldomly get good results -> need to find more examples *mybackground specified backgrounds cover all other background-setting programs. choosing alternative backgrounds from startmenu does not change anything. this is the longest usability issue i know, since sasha said this would be expected behaviour...
*balloon setings broken (display of garbage instead of wharfbuttonname as this is an unnecessary uncompatibility issue) *still waiting for balloons to be fixed relative to calerbutton geometry. for ex fixed ballon begin at for ex : +0-10 relative to nw corner of wharfbutton that the balloon is displayed for. *multirow/column setups are wacky for non-homogenous-sized wharf buttons
missing feature bugs:
*general autohide feature.... absolute must for modern desktops (reuse of shade function ?) -> maybe more general : make a function execute on leave windows (after timeout) for more complex stuff like changing layer etc... (for monitor theme) *winlist : no ability to start multiple times with different content *ability to inherit windowboxes (some way to have more automated placement -> ion) ??? *wharf : ability to swallow menus, to make full emulation of the windows interface a possibility
*NoDeskLabel : no mini-desktop-background shown if used (FIXED) *PagerBelowDesk does not work, nor does PagerBelowDesk + VerticalLabel result in label b put on right side of pager window -> result : pager set to be (pseudo-)transparent does not work any more (sucking gray instead of transparency) (FIXED?) *starting multiple modules of it, makes click into any other pager window then first one (first screen) move to false desktop (DEFINITLY FIXED)
