Waimea is yet another addition to the list of window managers for the Open Group's X Window System, Version 11 Release 6 and above. Blackbox is built with C++ and based uppon blackbox.
Is has a minimal resource usage, a fast and simple interface and has support for multiple desktop environments. It includes an integrated action system for build-in key-binding support as well as XRender (transparency and anti-aliasing), RandR (Rotate and Resize) support.
Recently it got rewritten to use Cairo and Glitz for rendering tasks as well a SVG for most style stuff. No idea how much of the original blackbox code is left ...
