Version 2.1.1 of package Swsw has just been released in NonGNU ELPA.
You can now find it in M-x package-list RET.
Swsw describes itself as:
Simple window switching

swsw NEWS -- history of user-visible changes. -*- mode: outline -*-
See the end of the file for an explanation of the versioning scheme.
** Indicate that some functions are for interactive use only.
** Bump required Emacs version to 27.1.
** Update window information when switching frames.
This fixes several issues when 'swsw-scope' isn't set to t.
** Make 'swsw-select' and 'swsw-delete' respect 'swsw-scope'.
Previously, 'swsw-select' and 'swsw-delete' would not select/delete
the only other window if it was on a different frame and 'swsw-scope'
allowed tracking it.
** Remap 'other-window' to 'swsw-select' when 'swsw-mode' is active.
By default this changes nothing since the default binding for
'other-window' is 'C-x o'.
This change has been made to add (simple) out-of-the-box compatibility
with alternative key binding sets or different Emacs distributions
(provided they bind 'other-window').
** No user visible changes.
** Add a link to the info node in the customization buffer.
** Add version information to customizable variables.
** Fix 'swsw-delete' when the only other tracked window is the minibuffer.
** Add support for custom window management commands.
Binding a command to a key in 'swsw-command-map' allows you to call that
command instead of selecting an ID.
Currently three such commands are defined: 'swsw-select' (o),
'swsw-select-minibuffer' (m), 'swsw-delete' (0).
** Breaking changes
*** 'swsw-minibuffer-id' is no longer defined or used anywhere, instead
providing the same functionality through 'swsw-select-minibuffer'.
*** 'swsw-select' no longer accepts a window ID as an optional argument.
** Apply customization options immediately.
Customizing 'swsw-id-chars' and 'swsw-scope' and applying those changes now
causes all window IDs to update.
** Construct IDs without pre-computing all possible IDs.
This should hopefully help performance when dealing with a very large
number of windows.
** Fix the calculation of the ID length.
Previously the ID length reported was much bigger than it needed to
** Prevent setting the minibuffer ID to a character which can be used to
construct a regular ID, and vice versa.
** Fix window selection occurring when entering an invalid ID.
** Bump required Emacs version to 26.1.
** Add missing license information in several places.
The info node was missing license information, and created archives were missing
the LICENSE file.
** Update the homepage of the package to dsemy.com/software/swsw.
** Update documentation strings.
Documentation strings for several functions and variables have been updated to
be more clear and to better comply with Emacs' conventions.
** Update installation instructions.
Installation instructions have been updated to indicate the possibility of
installing the package from GNU ELPA.
Note: at the time of writing this, this isn't actually possible yet, but the
instructions have been updated since I'm expecting this to be possible soon.
** Add the ability to customize the scope of 'swsw-mode'.
'swsw-scope' controls in which frames 'swsw-mode' tracks windows.
** Fix conditional display functions potentially breaking when the user presses
'C-g' ('keyboard-quit') while reading a window ID.
** Bind 'C-x o' to 'swsw-select' in 'swsw-mode-map' by default.
** Add an info node.
An info node (swsw) has been added which documents all user facing parts of the
package in detail.
** Add support for multi-character IDs.
IDs can now be constructed from multiple characters taken from 'swsw-id-chars',
when there are enough tracked windows.
** Add support for alternate display functions.
A new customization variable has been added: 'swsw-display-function'.
If it is set to a function, that function is used to display window IDs instead
of the mode line lighter.
See the documentation of the variable for more information.
Two reference functions are provided:
'swsw-mode-line-display-function' displays window IDs similarly to the way they
