Bug Description

After upgrading to 0.8.0 (could have happened sooner) the window manager plugin only allows the actions: "Minimize", "Maximize", and "Close All". Previously there was a "Focus" action available for running programs. This is also mentioned on the plugin's Wiki page. This has been tested with a number of different applications, none of them offer this action.

All other features of the plugin seem to work as described still, such as "Tile Windows" and the "Current Application" object (again, with the exception of the "Focus" action).

Jason removed this because apparently the code was terrible, I don't agree but it will be added back hopefully soon.

Thanks for the quick answer.

It was quite a cool feature, here's to hoping it comes back soon.

Thanks for the answer. Maybe add a note on the wiki? I was looking for this feature as well, I wanted to be able to go to a window on another workspace with gnome-do, and was confused since it was on the wiki, but not in my Gnome-Do. Thanks for all the awesome work, and I'll wait patiently for this to be worked out. As a dev myself, I know that these things take time.
