More stuff

Credit where credit is due: major parts of this package were written by people other than myself. There is no reason to re-implement stuff that is already freely available.

For copyright information and installation instructions, see the various packages. The sources are hacked by Yours Truly to give the programs a uniform look. If you don't approve of that and/or already have the programs installed, there is no need to install my versions. These are not the original versions! If my modifications break anything, complain to me about it, not the original authors. If the original versions work and mine don't, then don't use mine.

  • DND
    This library provides drag and drop capabilities which are compatible with several other applications, including the Files file manager. When one or more files are dragged from Files and dropped in a Siag window, a new instance of Siag is started with the file loaded.
