What do you miss from E16 in E17?

Hi, i was thinking the things i miss from E16, and i thought on asking what else could be improved:


1) the pager, although its beatifull it lacks several features the other had. (drag and drop windows, zoom...)

2) window management options! lots of them! i thought the strongest point of E16 (along with being "kind" of lightweight was the great features for managing windows it had. Why are ALL missing in E17? there is no remember, cant change mouse/window behavior, no ALT+TAB... damn i miss those...

i cant think of more right now... but i will be back!

They'll probably add that stuff. Remember, E17 is still in development.

My only problem with E17 is that there's no way to change the window focus... The semi-sloppy focus can be a bit annoying, and I like "full" sloppy focus better.

Really wouldn't go about missing features just yet. The thing isn't even in beta 0.0

Re: What do you miss from E16 in E17?

I dont know if i expressed bad or what, just in case, i was meaning the  miss from the remarked sentence:

miss1   Audio pronunciation of "miss" ( P )  Pronunciation Key  (ms)
v. missed, miss·ing, miss·es
v. tr.

   1. To fail to hit, reach, catch, meet, or otherwise make contact with.
   2. To fail to perceive, understand, or experience: completely missed the point of the film.
   3. To fail to accomplish, achieve, or attain (a goal).
   4. To fail to attend or perform: never missed a day of work.
   5.
         1. To leave out; omit.
         2. To let go by; let slip: miss a chance.
   6. To escape or avoid: narrowly missed crashing into the tree.
   7. To discover the absence or loss of: I missed my book after getting off the bus.
   8. To feel the lack or loss of: Do you miss your family?

Thats the one i meant, the last one, i didnt mean to say its "missing" from E17, i was saying what things are you most "desperated" to have again.
Thats the problem with English and having all those meanings for every word! Hope you understand what was the topic about now.


Edit:
When i get home i will check if nickm updated his repo with todays version, thanks rensel!

Regards.
