Hi,

TilingWM class>>numberOfLastUsedWindows was returning a boolean instead of a
number. therefore i submitted a fix with a small test
could you check it?

the idea is awesome!![?]

>>>>>>>>>>> - you've changed TilingWM>>visibleWindows to TilingWM>>windows.
>>>>>>>>>>>> The "visible" was not innocent, because tileVisibleWindows cares about

>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>> #tileVisibleWindows
>>>>>>>>>>>> #tileWindows  (maybe #tileAllWindows is a better name)
>>>>>>>>>>>> #tileVisibleWorkspaces
>>>>>>>>>>>> #tileWorkspaces / #tileAllWorkspaces
>>>>>>>>>>>> ......
>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>> Please, see you the comment in de versión 5 of de package, "Now
>>>>>>>>>>> all botton tile visibles windows.". I think it's better to just get
>>>>>>>>>>> organized visible windows, even when done on a particular kind (such as
>>>>>>>>>>> workspaces). For this is that the word was redundant now visible.
>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>> I will think about this.
>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>> When you have many windows, minimizing them is the way to let them

>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>> - I will add tests to TWMBar finally as it seems to grow

>>>>>>>>>>>> - I want TilingWM to be 100% test coverage

>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>> Don't hesitate to ask.

>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>> ok.
>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>> - Balloon and spaces for TWMBar is a good idea - we need to make

>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>> yes
>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>> - Great to have all the buttons per type of applications !
