Hey I've been really advocating the use of Twin for some time now. It's
better, IMO, than VWM, and VWM is, IMO, better than Twin - it just
depends on which feature set I want to use at the moment I guess.

Anyway, for over a year now, version 0.6.2 has been available, but it
was at Max's old University site and not sourceforge. I gave him a nudge
after sending the SBo maintainer an email pointing to the newest version
but never heard anything back. Mathhew might have had a lot on his plate
at the time.

That was fine until one day the original home site for Twin was taken
offline and the new version wasn't up at sourceforge (0.6.1 was the
latest there), so I went to task and Max just uploaded the 0.6.2 version.

If anyone is so inclined, I've maintained the x86_64 version of the
packages, 0.6.2 being at:
but I wouldn't mind at all if Matthew wanted me to take over the
SlackBuild for Twin, considering it's been such a pet project for me
over the past few years anyway - hint hint :)

I truly believe this is a VERY underutilized tool.

Anyway, I've BCC'd him on this, seeing how he's the maintainer, and
whichever way he would like to go on this would be great for the
community I'm sure.

Apologies for being somewhat off-topic if anyone found this post bothersome.

Kindest regards,
