The Fvwm3 development (latest version 1.0.4-65) has focused on the use of multi-monitors. The myExt config collection on the virtual desk with a mouse scroll feature allows gliding from one page to another (2x8) on a single monitor/screen. Similar to having a large paper sheet of 8 screens (click on Virtual Desk image thumbnail}.

I have uploaded the latest myExt config package 1.9.9 on Box-Look. An improvement on the virtual desk config (vPager4pg.sys) and the config file structure. Instead of a separate desk 2x2, it is now part of the main desk 2x4 with a button click (VM Desk). Also, the wallpaper and grid make it look a real move from one page to another.

This is the announcement for the new myExt version 3. It is quite different from the previous one with the aim of being user-centered. Where the user can make changes and create his or her own. Hopefully, this removes the old image of Fvwm being difficult to configure. Also, it is easy to share user-made configs. And co-exist with other Fvwm based WMs and DEs.

Version 3.0.2 will be soon uploaded. Until then, take a look at this preview video.

I have tested the current 54 extensions on NsCDE (based on Fvwm). A minor change from using on Fvwm3, they work fine. When I get time, planning to make one short video. Check the screenshot.

Finally, the Fvwm extensions are ready. Work like a user-oriented model to use, modify and create your own. It is a One-time install and then upgrade with Extension Installer. This graphic installer makes it user-friendly for those who prefer a quick setup of their choice. The update is handled through the GitHub repository:

How does it work? Make a test run.
There is one new Arch Linux Fvwm-myExt respin ISO (3.1.4) on the SourceForge site that has been recognized with a Rising Star award by SourceForge.
