32?  64??  arm or amd/intel?

Sway Atom AspireOne  Sid-unstable (Sway is still in experimental but for me rock solid)  928.0 total  183.0 used   

Jwm last release    2.3.7 / July 21, 2017; 2 years ago   His website is down presently.  Puppy and DSL use JoesWM

There are other metrics involved in being lightweight besides the memory usage.

JWM with Firefox 72.0.2 with 6 tabs, claws-mail, urxvt, and st terminal running: 64 bit, Intel: 1.16 GiB/7.71 GiB (15%) RAM; 5% CPU
I like keeping track of everything through one text file: ~/.jwmrc ... menus and an informative conky across the bottom right of the screen:
Most of the time I start any app via grun (Alt-F2) not through the menus.

Joe Wing's site is back up:
Admittedly the last version was 2.37 as paxmark1 stated. The latest GitHub upload was Dec. 31, 2018

IMHO Sparky's implementation of JWM is the best I've seen after Leonard Ashley's Crowz (a non-systemd Devuan distro)
