1. What is wmshutdown?

	wmshutdown is a Window Maker dock application that allows you to
	shut down or reboot your machine just by clicking a button on your
	desktop.  It's useful just for desktop machines, so there's no need to
	keep typing shutdown now -h every time you have to go away for some
	reason.

	I'd be thankful for any fixes or comments about it.

2. Security issues

   	Prior to version 1.1, wmshutdown used a setuid program (Shutdown or
      	wmshutdown-run) to actually shut down the computer, introducing
	potential security risks.  Beginning in version 1.1, wmshutdown uses
	logind instead.  In version 1.2, ConsoleKit support was added.

3. Install/Uninstall

	./configure (or ./configure --with-consolekit to use ConsoleKit)
	make
	make install [as root]

4. License

	wmshutdown is released under the GPL v3+.  See COPYING for more details.
