A quick bugfix release of i3 – version 4.5.1

This release fixes, among others, a high memory consumption problem in i3 4.5. The issue, as explained by Michael, is a result of a human mistake in the release process. For full details of a bug report, see this. The new release fixes the problem, as well as, introduces a few other changes.

Feel free to use my SlackBuild script to build the latest stable release of i3 including all the bugfixes. The builds for Slackware 14 and the -current branch are available here:

Enjoy

  2. Hi there. Which version of Slackware are you trying to install it on? Also which slackbuild are you using? Please provide the output of:
    ls /var/log/packages | grep ‘libev\|yajl’

    Thanks
