This release is based on stable Debian 12.1 'Bookworm'. The current Window Maker 0.95.9 is used as default window manager and exclusive desktop session option. The additional Xfce desktop session option was removed. Selected components and utilities of Xfce, MATE and LXQt were seamlessly integrated with Window Maker. A fail-safe mode session option was added for troubleshooting needs. The GTK widget libraries have been recompiled with the gtk3-classic patches. The login manager is now LightDM instead of the former wmlive-gdm. The default web browsers are Pale Moon and Surf. As mail messaging client, Claws-Mail has been chosen. Most wmlive-specific scripts have been localized using machine translation for about 17 of the most common European languages used worldwide. The default init system is now systemd instead of SysVInit. As it turned out, systemd has become the de-facto standard init system over time and trying to circumvent and replace it with SysVInit while maintaining the same levels of functionality has become increasingly difficult and laborious.
