I'm glad to announce xmobar-0.9.2.

What's new:

 - Norbert Zeh tracked and fixed a longstanding bug that made xmobar
   leak X resources. This alone makes it worth this release and its
   public announcement, with the advice to users to upgrade.[*]

 - Norbert also overhauled the template parser to allow nested color

 - Norbert, once again, added the possibility to add color definitions
   in the monitors' templates.

Many thanks to Norbert!!

I've read that xmobar lists in the top 25 most downloaded Hackage
packages. This is very cool: thanks to all the xmobar users.

Hope you'll enjoy.

[*] I tend to believe the same issue affects xmonad, even though it
should be visible only after a huge number of restarts. Things get far
worse when it comes to the xmonad-contrib library, especially if you
use fancy decorations in your layouts: if you see colors you are
probably leaking them.
