You can now "snap" a window, i.e., maximize it to a side or corner of the screen, by dragging it to that side or corner.
You can now control the behavior when a maximized window is dragged by setting the "DragMaximizedWindow" option in ~/GNUstep/Defaults/WindowMaker or by selecting an option from the "When dragging a maximized window..." pop-up button under "Window Handling Preferences" in WPrefs.app.
Since the original name was not really clear because it is a French word that is rarely used by British people, it was decided to change it to the more usual Mini-Preview name. The setting is configurable with WPrefs in the Icon Preferences tab, the size is now expressed in pixels directly.
The GNOME applications ask Window Maker to get no title bar and no resize bar to their windows by using "Hints". You can re-add them using the Attribute dialog in the Window menu, but if you are using many GNOME applications you may want to tell Window Maker to just ignore them. This is done with the new setting called "IgnoreGtkHints", which is available in the "Expert" panel in WPrefs.
The ICCCM defines a protocol for window managers to ask to replace the currently running one; Window Maker now supports it. You can ask Window Maker to take the place of current one by running "wmaker --replace", or any other window manager can ask Window Maker to leave the place for them when started the same way. Please note that this feature must be explicitely enabled at compile time because by default it is not compiled in ("configure --enable-wmreplace").
