    The 0.11 release, and its dependencies, are available from


    xmonad packages are available in pretty much every package system,

        Debian, Gentoo, Arch, Ubuntu, OpenBSD,
        NetBSD, FreeBSD, Gobo, NixOS, Source Mage, Slackware

    and 0.11 packages will appear in coming days.

    On the fly updating to xmonad 0.11 is supported, without losing your
    session!  You can even use cabal-install:

        $ cabal update
        $ cabal install xmonad
        $ cabal install xmonad-contrib
        $ xmonad --recompile; xmonad --restart


    xmonad comes with a huge library of extensions (now around 15
    times the size of xmonad itself), contributed by viewers like you.

    Extensions allow for all sorts of functionality and enhancements to
    the window manager, via Haskell in your config file. For more
    information on using and writing extensions see the webpage.  The
    library of extensions is available from hackage:


    Full documentation for using and writing your own extensions:
