- Small, fast, very tiny set of dependencies (Xlib only by default)
- Scriptable in any language
- Sophisticated formating language - including colours, icons, graphics
- Versatile - display all sorts of information
- Interactive - user defined mouse and keyboard actions

The basic documentation ressource is dzen's README file
For more andvanced topics and ready to use scripts be sure to have a look at the Dzen Wiki.
The wiki also holds a lot of information on the development version and documents the usage of bleeding edge features that did not make it into the README, yet.
