xex 1.3 released

xex is a small and simple program launcher for X, written in Perl-Gtk2.

If you find yourself frequently loading up an xterm just to run one X command, you may find this useful. Unlike all the other similar programs I could find, it aims to have the minimum necessary feature set (ie, a history list), and occupy the minimum amount of screen estate possible (while still being readable).

Version 1.3 is the first public release, under the GNU GPL. Download xex 1.3.

    This is my first Gtk application, so any comments or suggestions are especially welcome. To be honest I find GUI programming to be incredibly tedious so I’m unlikely to write anything more complicated than this in the near future!
