Summary: A Stand-Alone Terminal-Based Info Browser
Info is a terminal-based program for reading documentation of computer
programs in the Info format. The GNU Project distributes most of its
on-line manuals in the Info format, so you need a program called "Info
reader" to read the manuals.

GPL v2 or later


* Sun Jun 15 2008
  - Update to texinfo 4.12.
    * Language:
      . new commands @clicksequence, @click, and @clickstyle for documenting
      GUI sequences, and @arrow for the default glyph used.
      . new commands @geq{} and @leq{} for the normal >= and <= relations.
    * install-info:
      . lzma compression supported.
      . Much work towards compatibility with Debian's independent
      implementation.  Changes in behavior:
    - new entries are formatted to start at column 34 by default.
    - existing entries are replaced by default.
    - new sections are alphabetized among existing sections.
    - if an entry being removed is the last one in a section, the
    section is also removed.
      . Also many new options:
    - -section REGEX TITLE.
    - -no-indent: disable formatting of new entries.
    - -menuentry, --name: specify left-hand side of an entry.
    - -dry-run: alias for --test.
    - -regex REGEX: renamed from --section regex, adds to all sections
    matching REGEX by default.
    - -add-once: add only to first specified or matching section.
    - -align COL: start description at column COL.
    - -calign COL: start continuation lines in description at COL.
    - -max-width COL: wrap the description at COL.
      . New section in the Texinfo manual describing all this.
    * Info:
      Our goal with these changes to the default interface is to make Info
      documents more easily and quickly readable, especially by non-experts.
      . the PageUp and PageDown keys move through the whole document by
      default, instead of just the current node.
      . the h command shows the basic help, and H starts the Info tutorial.
      . the newly-bound x command deletes the current window, e.g., within help.
      . the scroll-step variable is set to 1 by default, for smooth scrolling.
      . the cursor-movement-scrolls-p variable is set to 1 by default, so
      link searches look through the whole document.
      . regular expression searches are supported, and are the default for
      both regular and incremental searches.
      . the new R command toggles between regexp and literal-string searches.
      . the new variable scroll-last-node controls scrolling at the end of
      the last node; by default, it now simply reports there are no more
      nodes.  To restore the old behavior, set scroll-last-node=Scroll.
      . the precise line number specified in index entries is used if available.
      . --usage=info shows usage for standalone Info.
      . lzma compression supported.
    * Distribution:
      . language support for no removed/renamed to nb, per Norwegian translators.
      . new translation: es.
      . bug fixes in make check (and elsewhere).
      . gettext 0.17, automake 1.10.1, autoconf 2.62.
* Mon Mar 10 2008
  - Update to texinfo version 4.11 (4.10 was omitted)
    * Language:
    . @documentlanguage now supports an optional country code
      specification after the language code, a la gettext.
    . new command @allowcodebreaks controls breaks at _ and - within @code.
    . new command @frenchspacing controls spacing after sentences.
    . new command @fonttextsize allows changing body text font size to 10pt.
    . new command @textdegree{} produces the normal degrees symbol.
    . new command @thischapternum can be used in TeX headers/footers.
    . new commands for quotes: @quotedblleft @quotedblright
      @quoteleft @quoteright  @quotedblbase @quotesinglbase
      @guillemetleft @guillemetright @guilsinglleft @guilsinglright.
    . new option @set txicodequoteundirected produces an undirected quote
      in code and example output, instead of the regular right quote.
    . new option @set txicodequotebacktick produces a grave accent in
      code and example output, instead of the regular left quote.
    * makeinfo:
    . The @documentlanguage locale is used to translate various document strings.
    . --enable-encoding is now the default, meaning Info and plain text
      output use 8-bit characters given a supported @documentencoding.
    . new option --css-ref=URL for creating a stylesheet <link> in HTML output.
    . new option --transliterate-file-names to use a reduction-to-ASCII
      algorithm for split HTML file names, useful for non-Latin-based languages.
    . @enddots{} outputs three dots instead of four, for consistency with
    . the Local Variables coding: setting written by --enable-encoding now
      comes at the very end, after the tags table, so that Emacs can find
      it in more cases.
    . @allow-recursion (never documented) is deprecated and produces a warning.
    . @quote-args (never documented) is now the default behavior.
    . centering and such take account of character widths.
    . the --reference-limit option is now a no-op.
    . improvements to XML and Docbook output and the DTD.
    * texinfo.tex:
    . @thissection can now be used in custom headings, and @thischapter
      works reliably even without @set chapternewpage.  Custom headings
      have additional flexibility as well.
    * texi2dvi:
    . pdftexi2dvi is a new wrapper to `texi2dvi --pdf', equal to texi2pdf,
      for the sake of AUC-TeX which prepends `pdf' to the compilation
      command when requested to produce PDF.
    * info:
    . look for info files in the current directory first, by default.
    . when calling man, use -a if no explicit section is found.
    . avoid showing the top(1) man page for nonexistent info files.
    * install-info:
    . new options --section-regex, --remove-exactly, --debug, --test.
    * Distribution:
    . autoconf 2.60, automake 1.10, gettext 0.16.1.
    . gettext support now [external].
    . new translations: hu (Hungarian), rw (Kinyarwandan), vi (Vietnamese).
    . most common sources imported from gnulib.
* Wed Jul 11 2007
  - Update to texinfo version 4.9
    * GPLv3.
    * texi2dvi:
      . new mode --build=tidy which supports compilation in a separate
      directory, where intermediate files are preserved.
      . new option --build-dir, to specify where the tidy build will take
      place, either locally or globally.  This allows avoiding the clutter
      while preserving auxiliary files.
      . new support for AUC-TeX: texi2dvi (weakly) supports arguments a la
      TeX such as `\nonstopmode\input{file.tex}'.
      . new options --ps and --dvipdf, useful especially for pstricks documents.
      . new option --src-specials, passed to TeX.
      . pdftexi2dvi is a new wrapper to `texi2dvi --pdf', equal to texi2pdf,
      for the sake of AUC-TeX which prepends `pdf' to the compilation
      command when requested to produce PDF.
    * texinfo.tex:
      . Latin1, Latin2, Latin9, and UTF-8 are supported as well as Computer
      Modern can manage.
      . png and jpg images supported in pdf output.
      . new Russian, Serbian, and Ukrainian translations for texinfo.tex:
      txi-ru.tex, txi-sr.tex, txi-uk.tex.
      . section names with \ characters work properly in pdf outlines.
      . have .toc files use @ as the escape character, instead of \.
  - Update to texi2html version 1.78
    * Transliterate accented characters in file names. Use Text::Unidecode
      if detected.
    * Handle @frenchspacing, @tie, @indent, @setcontentsaftertitlepage,
      @setshortcontentsaftertitlepage and the obsolete @allow-recursion
      and @quote-arg.
    * With book style the Table of Contents is put where it is set.
    * Use more numeric entities, especially for accented letters.
    * The `examples' directory now contains an init file for Mediawiki output.
      Mediawiki is the GPL'd wiki used by Wikipedia.
    * new init file tex4ht.init. With this init file, httex or htlatex from
      tex4ht is used to format @tex and @math.
    * Init files now have a chance to override all file names, rather than just
      page names.
    * Put the images under a double licence by adding back their original GPL
    * If SIMPLE_MENU is true the menu is simply enclosed in a preformatted
    * The user can bypass the texi2html functions and provide his own function
      to do things similar that what is done for interfacing with LaTeX2HTML
      or tex4ht.
    * LaTeX2HTML stuff is moved out of, to
    * Add $USER and $DATE variables to override the defaults detected for the
    * $TOP_FILE and $TOC_FILE are only set if set by the user. The elements
      file names are in the hash reference $Texi2HTML::THISDOC{'filename'}
      for use in init files.
    * The API for image, normal_text, paragraph and node_file_name has changed.
    * The $ENCODING variable is deprecated, replaced by $ENCODING_NAME
      and $OUT_ENCODING.
    * utf8 is used as default out file encoding. This should allow for utf8
      translations for languages which cannot use @-commands for non ascii
    * Use entities for ``, '', ---, -- and quotes used for some formatting
      @-commands if $USE_ISO is set.
    * don't set unset MENU-ENTRY-NAME if it is similar with the NODE-NAME,
      it is useless as it is a construct that shouldn't happen.
    * avoid menu entry and description redundancy in the formatting function
      and not in the main program.
    * accept - in @-command names (compatibility with makeinfo)
    * in user-defined macro arguments a comma in brace is escaped (compatibility
      with makeinfo from texinfo 4.8.90)
    * don't add the section title to the html title when the document isn't split
    * When the file extension is set to the empty string, a trailing `.' will not
      be automatically added to file names.
    * The texi2html script is now created by make and not configure.
    * It is possible to build the translation files from outside of the
      build directory.
    * When configure detects that no Data::Dumper is present, the build scripts
      will simply copy the files instead of breaking.
    * remove handling of quotation second arg, quotation has only one arg.
    * handle nested ifset/ifclear.
    * Improved handling of @sc and @centerchap.
    * More flexible normal_text.
    * style_stack really contains the formatting @-commands.
    * caching of html generated by latex2html reenabled.
    * when not split and no section navigation is output, the about page and
      navigation direction are not output for all the elements.
