It appears with this release you've fixed a bug i was having with the
workspace switcher that i've been meaning to report. Nice work. :)
I've updated the package in the AUR (Arch User Repository) for this
release. Soon I may roll it into Manjaro's official binary repos as
Thanks & keep up the good work.
