An exensible, dynamically tiling, X11 window manager

xmonad is a dynamically tiling X11 window manager that is written and configured in Haskell. In other words, it handles the arrangement of windows for you.

It is minimal and efficient, and managed through the keyboard. It is extensible and featureful, through Haskell as the powerful configuration language with a variety of hooks, with a large existing extension library, and things like xinerama support and per-screen workspaces. It is also stable, being written in Haskell and extensively using good practices including formal verification.

As of version 0.7, it has under 1200 lines of code.
