I've just released xmobar-0.4, my XMonad status bar:


XMobar is a minimalistic text only status bar.

What's new:
- many performance improvements on the monitors side;
- added a (sort of) library for writing monitors;
- every monitor takes a set of command-line options to set:
  * high and low thresholds,
  * high, normal and low colors
  * output template. Try for instance xmb-weather --help

[15:47:29]$ xmb-weather -t "<station> <tempF>, <rh>, (<hour>)" EGPF
Glasgow Airport <fc=#FF0000>62.6</fc>, <fc=#FF0000>72.0</fc>, (13:20)

For me xmobar is a good-enough replacement of the Ion3 status bar.
I hope you'll enjoy it.

Any suggestion, comments, critics are welcome.

Know bugs: center alignment does produce weird (but nice) results.

All the best,
