  - Patch #276 - 2011/10/10
    * modify clipping limits for TrueType fonts to account for the
      scaleHeight resource setting, to work around another problem
      due to recent FreeType changes. In this case, the DejaVu Sans
      Mono set to pixelsize=13.5 is truncated because the font
      descent is reduced by FreeType to match an incorrect height
      metric (report by Adam Lee).
    * improve recovery when bitmap fonts are not installed, e.g.,
      so that switching font-sizes works for TrueType fonts.
    * modify lookup for XTERM_SHELL feature to allow relative
    * modify abbreviation disambiguation check for command-line
      parameters to account for -geometry, whose parameter may
      begin with "+" or "-" (report by Scott Bertilson).
* Thu Sep 15 2011
  - Patch #275 - 2011/09/11
    * add ash, zsh to known shells for resize.
    * modify resize to reuse the logic from xterm which determines
      the actual logon-user's shell if $SHELL is not set.
    * revert the unsetenv("SHELL") added in patch #272.
    * an unsetenv("SHELL") added in patch #272 to help ensure that
      luit would get the user's shell consistently did not work as
      expected for cases where multiple names are in the
      password-file for a given uid. That was because changes in
      patch #157 to handle this situation did not take into account
      that repeated calls to getpwnam and getpwuid return a pointer
      to the same static buffer. Fixed the older logic to work as
      intended, by ensuring that the passwd-data from each call is
      stored separately (report by Paul Keusemann).
    * adjust ifdef's for putenv and unsetenv in case only one of
      those is provided on a given platform.
    * correct comparison used in ExposeContains macro from patch
      [#274] changes, to handle window-dragging (patch by Todd
* Wed Sep 07 2011
  - Patch #274 - 2011/09/05
    * portability fixes for cygwin: do not define SVR4, and work
      around nonstandard header location.
    * ifdef'd use of unsetenv from patch #273 changes to work with
      Solaris 9 (report by Waldemar Rachwal).
    * modify logic for XtAppPending to merge adjacent Expose and
      ConfigureNotify events which are redundant (report by Edward
    * fix an unneeded warning message when -r option is given.
    * remove a few redundant entries from table used for helping
      abbreviation-checking of command-line options, makes -geom
      work again after patch #272 changes as an abbreviation of
    - geometry.
    * add scaleHeight resource and command-line option -sh as
      workaround for some font-configurations broken by changes in
      FreeType 2.4.6 (report by Miroslav Hodak).
    * portability fixes for some configure macros: CF_FUNC_TGETENT,
    * add configure option --with-freetype-config to improve
      selection over the plethora of configuration options which
      freetype has so far provided.
    * build-fix for configure --enable-load-vt-fonts when
    - -enable-widec is not specified.
    * build-fixes for suppressing various features, needed after
      changes in patches 270, 271 and 272 (report by Brian
* Wed Aug 31 2011
  - Patch #273 - 2011/08/25
    * build-fix for out-of-tree "make docs" rule.
    * correct a typo in x_strdup, from patch #198 changes.
    * correct initialization for -e option, broken in patch #272
      changes (report by Gabriele Balducci).
    * build-fix for out-of-tree builds to address minstall script
      changes in patch #272 (patch by Thierry Reding).
  - Patch #272 - 2011/08/24
    * document limitation of Gtk in connection with xterm's -into
      option, in the manpage (Ubuntu #806969).
    * improve -into by checking for and using the size of the window
      within which xterm is embedded, overriding other clues.
    * modify logic for localeFilter resource to allow that to
      include command-line options of luit.
    * improve -into by checking for invalid window-id, and allowing
      hexadecimal/decimal/octal values.
    * improve keepSelection, adding the case where the highlighting
      is cleared, overlooked in patch #230 (patch by Marco
    * improve command-line parsing to make abbreviate options work
      consistently across xterm-specific versus standard X toolkit
      options, and report cases where an abbreviated option happens
      to be ambiguous. In particular, -d now works as an
      abbreviation for -display.
    * fix regression in command-line parsing introduced in patch
      [#271] changes for Debian #629358, (Debian #637910).
    * split-out new termcap/terminfo building block xterm+kbs for
    * modify terminfo file to reflect changes in ncurses for
      xterm-16color and xterm-256color.
    * modify, etc., to reflect the default default
      class, $TERM and decTerminalID values.
    * reword resize manpage to reflect the fact that $TERMCAP is not
      set on all systems (patch by Alan Coopersmith).
    * work around combined Xaw6/Xaw7 package in DragonFlyBSD which
      omits the usual symbolic link to the preferred library name.
    * further improve build-fix for termcap systems by checking for
      some which are only partial implementations, e.g., termcap
      2.08 in CentOS 5.2
* Wed Jul 27 2011
  - Patch #271 - 2011/07/14
    * omit permissions adjustments to pty on exit except for
      pre-Unix98 ptys, since modern implementations handle this
      (report by Sean C Farley).
    * modify logic for switching fonts between UTF-8 and non-UTF-8
    * encoding to not merge the derivable bold-, wide- and widebold
    * values from the VT100 fonts. Also suppress warning when not
    * using UTF-8 fonts if wide- and widebold-fonts cannot be
    * derived or otherwise loaded (report by Werner Scheinast).
    * modify menu-creation to suppress entries which will never be
      used in the current configuration, rather than simply disabling
    * add resource printModeImmediate and menu item to allow print
      of screen plus saved lines to a file.
    * add menu item to allow runtime enable/disable of the
      printFileOnXError feature.
    * append a timestamp to filename used in printFileOnXError
      feature, and restrict its permissions (request by Vincent
    * add a check when cancelling cursor-blinking, in case the
      cursor is blinked off. Fix so that the cursor is repainted
      without waiting for other events, e.g., keypress (report by
      Ailin Nemui).
    * add configure --with-app-class option, to simplify building
      "xterm-dev" packages with filenames that do not conflict with
      conventional "xterm" packages.
    * corrected logic flow for DECSCL, which prevented the updated
      operating level from being reported via DECRQSS (report by
      Ailin Nemui).
    * corrected default for brokenStringTerm resource to match
    * add vttests/
    * add runtime check for locale not supported by X libraries, and
      fallback to XA_STRING in this case (request by Bryan
    * fix a special case in configure script after no FreeType
      libraries are found. The script was proceeding to check for a
      usable configuration.
    * add xterm+tmux building block to terminfo (adapted from
      changes proposed by Ailin Nemui and Nicholas Marriott).
    * improve discussion of faceName resource in manpage (adapted
      from suggestions by Jens Schweikhardt).
    * correct mapping of shifted up/down cursor-keys in termcap
      function-keys mode, i.e., resource tcapFunctionKeys (patch by
      Gertjan Halkes).
    * update AIX case in CF_XOPEN_SOURCE configure macro to add
      release 7.x.
    * modify ifdef's in xterm_io.h for __hpux to force that to use
      the hacked SYSV support in that file. This fixes a problem
      with a non-blocking socket call (patch by Paul Lampert).
    * improve filtering of desktop category scanning, to exclude
    * modify configure script to work with systems that have both
      ncurses (or other terminfo) as well as a real termcap library,
      e.g., Slackware (report by Alan Watts).
    * modify configure script to work around special case where
      user's environment adds compiler flags to the CC variable
      (prompted by report by Paul Lampert).
    * amend change for Debian #110226 so that "-h" or "-v" options
      cause an exit, rather than simply printing to stdout while the
      window is displayed (Debian #629358).
    * add response for DECRQSS which gives the setting for DECSCUSR.
    * modify AllocateTermColor() to handle XtDefaultForeground and
      XtDefaultBackground, which are not recognized by XParseColor.
      For example, this fixes the use of OSC 112 when no explicit
      cursor color was set (report by Ailin Nemui).
    * handle special-case of KeyPress translated to popup-menu
      action (Ubuntu #756273).
* Tue Jul 12 2011
  - Patch #270 - 2011/04/26
    * build-fix, e.g., for using imake on platforms which use the
      termcap library.
    * modify utf8 resource to accept a name.
    * mention default for fontWarnings in manpage (report by Werner
    * split "UTF-8" menu entry into "UTF-8 Encoding" and "UTF-8
    * gray-out font-menu entries when a font fails to load, e.g., a
      bitmap font is not installed.
    * improve behavior when there is no app-defaults file:
      o set the toolBar resource to false
      o gray-out the font menu entries where no resource is found.
    * add configure option --with-desktop-category to allow
      customization of the ".desktop" files.
    * build-fix for the install-desktop makefile-rule, when the
      source/build directories differ (patch by Loïc Minier).
    * add menu entry and corresponding resource which can be used to
      suppress all bold-fonts (discussion with Jan Engelhardt).
    * make internal line-size value consistent with allocated sizes
      of character and related arrays to ensure that bulk copying of
      line data, e.g., in scrolling, accounts for the padding used
      for pointer alignment (adapted from patch by Rajesh
      Mandalemula, also reported by Ali Bahar).
    * widen ifdef for screen-resizing logic from patch #176 changes
      to send SIGWINCH to process group to include any system
      supporting ioctl(*,TIOCGPGRP,*) (prompted by linux-specific
      patch in OpenSUSE rpm package).
    * add printModeOnXError and printFileOnXError resources, which
      allow the user to specify that xterm will write the contents
      of its screen to a file if it is exiting due to an X error
      (Debian #280457).
    * restore logic that made reverse-video apply to the scrollbar's
      foreground/background, broken in patch #158 (report by Bryan
    * amend some of the window operations parameter-checks added in
      patch #251 for the push/pop title feature, to allow the
      parameters used for window resizing to be -1's, which makes
      the corresponding values ignored rather than using the
      window's maximum width/height (report by Noah Friedman).
    * correct order of initialization for translations vs fullscreen
      resources to enable a special case which omits the Alt-Enter
      translation when fullscreen is disabled (Debian #612978).
    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Thu Mar 03 2011
  - Patch #269 - 2011/02/19
    * build-fixes for imake (report by Heiko Berges).
    * modify autoconf macro CF_PKG_CONFIG to work with cross-compile
      environments (patch by Thierry Reding).
    * modify MapToColorMode() to favor bold over underline, matching
      the precedence used before patch #252 (report/analysis by
      Nicolas George).
    * add omitTranslation resource, which can be used to suppress
      the default translations for these features:
      o fullscreen
      o scroll-lock
      o shift-fonts
      o wheel-mouse
    * make the fullscreen feature configurable (Debian #612978)
      o add it to the configurable list disallowedWindowOps.
      o add command-line option -fullscreen to allow the feature to
      be enabled at startup.
      o add resource fullscreen to control whether the feature is
      active or may be enabled.
    * modify probe_netwm_fullscreen_capability for 64-bit machines.
      Contrary to XGetWindowProperty manpage, that function returns
      32-bit data packed as long's.
    * eliminate copy of name resource, which was otherwise used only
      to give the terminal-description name for the tcap-query
      feature. Use the actual $TERM value instead, as derived from
      termName resource, etc.
    * eliminate an old inconsistency with error messages, some used
      the -name option, while others used argv[0]. The latter is now
      used consistently.
    * improve configure check for rpath-hack, to improve builds on
      systems where gcc will not search /usr/local/lib, etc.
    * build-fix for Xaw3d configuration (report by H Merijn Brand).
    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Wed Feb 16 2011
  - Patch #268 - 2011/02/10
    * fix an inconsistency of the "Enable Reverse Video" checkbox in the VT
      Options menu. This also removes a special case added in patch #217 which
      limited the effect of the reverseVideo resource (Debian #603808).
    * amend decoding of misformed UTF-8 sequences to avoid absorbing valid
      characters as documented in Unicode 6.0 section 3.9 (report by Keith
    * do not set urgency hint when window already has focus (patch by Dimitrios
    * amend extended mouse-coordinate mode from patch #262 changes to include the
      Cb button-code, which also may be greater than 127 (report by Ailin Nemui).
    * ensure that underline-cursor is visible when an application happens to set
      the background color (report by Christian Weisgerber).
    * add feature for full-screen toggling using either Alt-Enter or a menu
      selection (integrated patch by Dave Simmons).
    * add missing logic to handle reallocation of FIFO index for the "UTF-8" menu
      entry (report by David Holland, NetBSD #44344).
    * add makefile rules docs-ctlseqs, docs-xterm, etc.
    * correct typo in description of DECRPM in control sequences document (report
      by Ailin Nemui).
  - Patch #267 - 2010/11/20
    * minor formatting changes to to simplify a script which extracts
      the feature information. See the results in Comparing versions, by counting
      controls in the xterm FAQ.
    * add docs-clean makefile rule.
    * add copy-selection action (request by Timo Juhani Lindfors, Debian #588785).
    * trim leading/trailing blanks from string used for "Selection" font-menu
    * trim leading/trailing blanks from color resource values.
    * configure script improvements:
      o add workaround for removal of X11 dependency from Xt's package file
      (report by Robert Hooker).
      o add workaround for removal of fontconfig dependency from Xft's package
      file (report by Jeremy Huddleston).
      o add workaround for removal of Xmu dependency from Xaw's package file
      (report by Jeremy Huddleston).
      o improve workaround in CF_X_TOOLKIT macro, checking for other possible
      packages where Xt's dependencies may be given.
      o prefer ${name:=value} to ${name-value}, since recent bash changes break
      legacy support for that feature.
  - Patch #266 - 2010/10/24
    * add rpm and dpkg scripts, for testing.
    * more fixes for Debian #600707 (report by Cyril Brulebois).
  - Patch #265 - 2010/10/22
    * fix a regression in fontname logic from patch #263 changes (Debian #600707,
      reported by Vincent Lefevre).
    * revert modification of any-event/any-button protocol from patch #263
      changes. It interferes with selection using a shifted mouse button (reports
      by Neil Bird, Bram Moolenaar).
* Fri Oct 15 2010
  - Patch #264 - 2010/10/14
    * replace a null-pointer check with check for empty string in
      xtermOpenFont, to eliminate a warning message from patch #263 changes.
    * build-fix for patch #263 when toolbar is not configured (patch by
      Chris Clayton) (reports by Robby Workman, David Wood).
  - Patch #263 - 2010/10/13
    * corrected initialization of "misc" resource values, to ensure that
      xterm has allocated a copy of strings which may not have been malloc'd
      by the X library (Debian #600129).
    * modify handling of any-event/any-button mouse protocol; it now is
      active with any combination of key-modifiers.
    * add debugging feature showWrapMarks, which marks lines which xterm
      knows are wrapped, showing where a double-click will select past the
      end of a line.
    * build-fix to address change in include-guards for Xlib.h in ongoing
      Xorg edits (patch by Jeremy Huddleston).
    * improve pointerMode by continuing to watch for motion events after
      mouse tracking is disabled if the pointer is hidden (Debian #594856).
    * further extend initialization for active-icon font to check if the
      font was not loaded succesfully, to retry with font1, or as even
      (if TrueType fonts are used) to use a TrueType font. The retries
      are to help with cases as in patch #241 where the bitmap fonts are
      not available.
    * fix special case of active-icon used when TrueType font is specified
      for the xterm window, from patch #261 change. In that case, the
      default font's size was used for layout of the active icon's window
      (Debian #591265).
  - Patch #262 - 2010/8/30
    * fix a case where changing the cursor color via escape sequences did
      not immediately update the screen (report by Andreas Wagner).
    * implement ANSI and DEC request-mode control sequences. The latter
      includes the xterm-specific private modes such as the mouse mode. The
      feature is ifdef'd with the rectangle operations since its decoding
      overlaps that feature.
    * correct typo in for response of OSC 21 (patch by Kevin Schoedel).
    * improve discussion of mouse tracking in
    * increase an array limit used in reporting mouse events (report by Ryan Johnson).
    * add extended mouse-coordinates mode, allowing up to 2015x2015 windows,
      using UTF-8 encoding (patch by Ryan Johnson).
    * modify manpage hyphens to conform with Debian.
  - Patch #261 - 2010/6/28
    * fix regression in renderFont logic, from patch #260 changes (report
      by Joseph Quinsey).
  - Patch #260 - 2010/6/20
    * modify to work around problem linking to recent PCRE libraries.
    * extend renderFont resource to allow deferred switch to TrueType
      fonts without affecting existing resource settings (Debian #585620).
    * modify configure macro CF_X_TOOLKIT to work around omission of ICE
      library from ".pc" file (report by Miroslav Lichvar).
    * change configure script default for --enable-broken-st i.e., the
      brokenStringTerm feature) to normally enable it. If the corresponding
      resource is enabled, this feature eliminates an apparent freeze of
      xterm when sending mis-encoded data to the screen (Debian #584801).
    * document in manpage some actions which were overlooked:
      o readline-button
      o scroll-lock
      o set-8-bit-control
    * undo a change to limit-check in ScrnRefresh in patch #257, which
      broke fastScroll feature (Debian #584841).
    * modify handling of brokenLinuxOSC and brokenStringTerm to also sound
      the bell.
    * add control/D and control/Q to controls which will cause early exit
      from control string per brokenStringTerm resource.
    * improve documentation of brokenStringTerm resource in manpage.
  - Patch #259 - 2010/6/5
    * modify configure check for luit to include new aliases for the program
      (xterm-filter and bluit).
    * add workaround in xtermClearLEDs() to account for Xkb's override,
      making vttest's LED demo reset the scroll lock.
    * filter out client-message events when deciding whether to hide cursor,
      e.g., when using SCIM (patch/report by anonymous user).
    * improve description of -bd option in manpage (report by Guy Daniel Clotilde).
    * modify configure checks for PCRE and other libraries to use pkg-config, if available.
    * amend change from patch #252, to take veryColorColors resource into
      account when checking colorBDMode resource for TrueType fonts (report
      by anonymous user).
    * add vttests/ script for demonstrating the OSC 50 font query.
    * improve manpage discussion of Scroll Lock feature.
    * improve configure macros CF_GCC_VERSION and CF_GCC_WARNINGS.
    * fix warnings for "clang --analyze".
    * change default for allowScrollLock resource to false, noting that
      the supposedly unused key has been useful for various rebindings
      (Debian #580946).
  - Patch #258 - 2010/5/1
    * add pointer-checks in ScrnRefresh to fix a case in rapid scrolling
      where an empty record is fetched from the scrollback FIFO.
  - Patch #257 - 2010/4/22
    * correct description of OSC 17 and OSC 19 (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
    * corrected logic for menuLocale resource; the setlocale function
      returns the original locale only when querying.
    * improve filtering of translations resource, narrowing the scope of
      the alwaysUseMods to address only the translations that would cause
      a key to be sent to the host (report by Andrew Gaylard).
    * change default value of menuLocale resource to "C", to work around
      longstanding Xorg bug.
    * modify handling of scrollKey feature to ignore XON/XOFF keys.
    * implement scroll-lock feature.
    * revise memory allocation in UTF8toLatin1() to fix an out-of-bounds
      index (Mandriva #54531).
    * compute value for first wide-character rather than assuming it is
      256, fixes problem with -cjk_width introduced in patches 242 and 249
      (report by Thomas Wolff).
    * improve configure script:
      o corrected check for _XOPEN_SOURCE for OpenSolaris.
      o when possible, add rpath option for libraries in unusual places
      o add configure option --disable-rpath-hack to control whether the rpath option can be added.
    * modify AllocateTermColor() to separate initialization from control
      sequences, fixing problem from patch #254 changes where enabling
      allowSendEvents resource prevents setting cursor color on command-line
      (Debian #572928).
    * amend logic from patch #185 to not reallocate cell-array if processing
      ESC % G to switch from UTF-8 if already in ISO-8859-1 character set
      (report by Michael Koehne).
    * fix to avoid calling XmuInternStrings() with zero count (report by Johan Bockgård).
    * fix build when --disable-ansi-color configure option is used.
    * fix build when neither OPT_TCAP_QUERY or OPT_TCAP_FKEYS is defined
      (patch by Matthieu Herrb)
  - Patch #256 - 2010/3/6
    * add TerminalEmulator to desktop category files.
    * modify to ignore the "." appended to permissions by selinux.
    * change app-defaults organization, installing UXTerm-color and
      KOI8XTerm-color for consistent behavior regarding customization: color
      (prompted by discussion in Ubuntu #421261).
    * fix typo in from patch #255 changes, and add case for
      /var/run needed for full path of utmp (report by Julien Cristau).
    * minor fix to xterm manpage, remove a comment stating that margin bell
      can be changed via the VT Options menu. That was replaced in patch #225
    * add a "docs" rule to makefile.
    * fix initialization of Atom used for XkbBell feature from patch 243
      changes. Unlike the other calls to XInternAtom(), in this case the
      flag telling X to create the Atom was unset (patch by Chris Adams).
* Thu Sep 09 2010
  - BuildRequire utempter-devel
* Sat Feb 13 2010
  - Patch #255 - 2010/1/21
    * rename to install-sh in case suffix-rules might interfere.
    * extend range for convertToUTF8 function to full 31-bits, to use with
      printing, etc.
    * improve manpage by checking for actual locations of utmp/wtmp files
      (Debian #562640).
    * modify configure macro CF_XOPEN_SOURCE to remove -D's before adding the
      same name rather than relying on -U's, to reduce redefinition warnings
      for some platforms that have conflicting definitions in headers.
    * correct logic used to switch to alternate screen using FIFO-lines
      configuration (Debian #565772).
    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Fri Jan 15 2010
  - Patch #254 - 2010/1/6
    * add a configure-check to eliminate install-ti rule from Makefile
      when the system has no tic (terminfo compiler) program. This lets
      one use the install-full rule more consistently.
    * amend change to WriteText() function in patch #252 to take into
      account the colorAttrMode resource (report by Krzysztof Kotlenga).
    * document titleModes resource in manpage, added in patch #252.
    * modify tcap-query table entries for shifted up/down cursor keys
      to match ncurses convention.
    * improve lookup of termcap-query data, allowing for duplicate
      keycodes versus missing entries.
    * add control sequence which can be used to modify the terminal data
      used for the termcap-keyboard.
    * improve portability of tcap-query feature, using terminfo functions
      in preference to termcap on systems having terminfo.
    * improve font-setting/querying control (OSC 50):
      o when TrueType font is selected, the TrueType faceName will
      be set, rather than the bitmap font.
      o when TrueType font is selected, querying returns the name
      of the TrueType font.
      o querying a font recognizes the relative-font convention that
      setting a font could use.
    * add menu-entry for allowColorOps.
    * add new resources for fine-tuning menu entries: allowColorOps,
      disallowedColorOps, disallowedFontOps and disallowedTcapOps.
    * correct logic for disabling the "TrueType Fonts" menu item; it
      was not ensuring that the faceName resource value was non-empty.
    * implement VT520-style controls DECSMBV and DECSWBV for setting
      the margin- and warning-bell volume.
    * fix a minor error from patch #243 which made the zIconBeep feature
      use a minor-error tone rather than an informational tone.
    * add a null-pointer check for the case where renderFont resource is
      true, but faceName resource is unset, used in logic to strip "xft:"
      prefix from patch #251 changes (patch by Michael Riepe).
    * add special case to configure CF_XOPEN_SOURCE macro to use
      extensions on Darwin (patch by Dennis Preiser).
    * improve configure checks for regular expressions header and library
    * update config.guess, config.sub
  - Patch #253 - 2009/12/10
    * add a null-pointer check in getPrinterFlags() per changes in patch #252.
    * add a null-pointer check, needed in UTF-8 mode for Xft fonts after
      changes in patch #252 (patch by Alan Coopersmith).
    * correct size when clearing struct for tek4014 (patch by Jochen Voss).
    * parenthesize expression in MoreRows macro, fixing a limit check
      added in patch #251 (Debian #560039).
  - Patch #252 - 2009/12/7
    * modify title-querying logic to support retrieval of titles encoded using UTF-8.
    * add new "title-modes" control sequence for controlling whether
      window/icon titles can be set or queried using UTF-8, optionally
      encoded in a hexadecimal string.
    * use mkdir -p rather than (prompted by discussion of mawk
      by Aleksey Cheusov).
    * add appropriate copyright/license notices to the bulk of files
      lacking same, and modify to use identical terms in others which used
      different wording. The main exceptions are the files contributed
      by Markus Kuhn, who appears to prefer public domain distribution,
      noting that I have modified/improved several of these without
      changing the terms of distribution (request by Jari Aalto).
    * add control sequences for resetting the "dynamic" colors to their
      default values.
    * add control sequences for resetting the "special" colors to their
      default values.
    * add control sequences for setting the "special" colors such as
      colorBD (bold).
    * add overlooked case for setting highlight foreground color with
      the dynamic-colors control.
    * add OSC 104, for resetting ANSI/16/88/256 colors to default.
    * reset ANSI/16/88/256 colors to default in soft/hard reset functions.
    * strip "xft:" prefix from faceName and faceNameDoublesize resource values,
    * add DECSCUSR (discussion with Andy Koppe).
    * add check/warning on failure to load font, to see if the name looks
      like an Xft pattern rather than XLFD. This can happen if someone
      happens to modify their X resource settings for programs that read
      data from xterm's namespace.
    * modify handling of print and print-everything actions to allow
      the various printer flags to be overridden by supplying parameters.
    * add resource printerNewLine (request by Ovidiu Gheorghioiu).
    * minor cleanup, finish using TScreenOf() and TekScreenOf() macros introduced in patch #224.
    * improve checks in ShowCursor/HideCursor to get the background color,
      particularly when highlightReverse resource is used (reports by
      Jan Engelhardt, Christian Weisgerber).
    * correct checkVeryBoldAttr to omit comparison of foreground color
      to special color values used for color<XX> resources (report by
      Jan Engelhardt).
    * make colorBDMode and colorULMode resources work with TrueType
      configuration (report by Jan Engelhardt).
  - Patch #251 - 2009/11/11
    * add window-ops controls to push/pop icon and/or window labels on a stack.
    * minor fixes to align termcap file with terminfo.
    * add resource disallowedWindowOps, to allow fine-tuning of features
      to suppress with the allowWindowOps resource (prompted by discussion
      with Bram Moolenaar).
    * add makefile rules for resize-manpage to pdf, etc.
    * further improve limit-checks in select/paste (Mandriva #54531).
  - Patch #250 - 2009/10/13
    * add check and error-message for fonts that have no printable values
      in the ISO-8859-1 range (Debian #542434).
    * some compiler-warning cleanup, in particular workaround for
      defective implementation of gcc's attribute warn_unused_result
      (report by Bram Moolenaar).
    * improve estimate of single-column width for packed TrueType fonts
      by ignoring extents for codes 127 and 159.
    * improve line-drawing for TrueType fonts which happen to have defined
      glyphs which are not line-drawing in 0..31 by assuming they're not,
      and just checking the existence of the Unicode codepoints. This
      makes it more likely that the user can override a misconfigured
      font using the "Line-Drawing Characters" menu entry.
    * limit minimum cell-width for packed font to maximum-advance reported
      by Xft. Some fonts are wider than that, even in the Latin-1 range
      (Debian #550497).
    * add list of direct-contributors in "THANKS" file.
    * stylistic changes to this file to help scripted extraction of list
      of contributors.
    * correct off-by-one in okPosition fix from patch #249 limit-checks
      which prevented double-click selection on the bottom line of the
      screen (reports by Rajeev V. Pillai, Debian #550368).
    * add -q option to vttest/ and vttest/ to
      demonstrate bulk initialization of color palette.
    * improve the workaround from patch #188 by enabling resources for
      the 88-color model.
    * document in xterm manpage the limited availability of resources
      color16 to color255 as noted in patch #188 (Ubuntu #438850).
  - Patch #249 - 2009/10/1
    * change default for allowWindowOps resource to false.
    * add limit-checks for result of visual_width() function, needed
      from patch #242 and exposed by #244 changes (Debian #548321).
    * improve limit-checks in select/paste.
    * fix a remaining bug from patch #230 changes for displaying
      multi-column characters in a proportional font (report by Chris
    * add new resource forcePackedFont and menu entry "Packed Font" to
      control whether to use the font's minimum (default) or maximum width
      when those differ. The workaround which xterm uses to accommodate
      proportional fonts is not necessary with certain fonts such as
      unifont which happen to store a mixture of multicolumn glyphs
      (report by Chris Jones).
    * fix an (old) bug which did not restart the timer for blinking
      text if the only blinking text was temporarily scrolled out of view,
      e.g., using the scrollbar.
    * fix an (old) flaw in the delete-line operation where the text
      which is scrolled into view while the display is scrolled up was
      not repainted.
    * improve delete-line and insert-line operations, retaining selection
      when the selection does not intersect the deleted/inserted lines.
    * fix an (old) off-by-one error when an application cleared above
      the cursor position while the display was scrolled up, that would
      leave an extra line of text uncleared.
    * fix a similar problem where the double-size attribute would not
      be reset when clearing the screen while the display was scrolled up.
    * fix an indexing error which would occur if an application cleared
      a line while the display was scrolled up and was also in UTF-8 mode
      (Redhat #524503). The error was from patch #228 but more visible
      after changes from patch #244.
  - Patch #248 - 2009/9/11
    * fix an overlooked adjustment for selecting double-width characters
      in the narrow-character configuration.
    * eliminate uses of XTERM_CELL and XTERM_CELLC where an appropriate
      LineData pointer is available.
    * correct expression in okScrnRow macro, making selections give the
      length of lines below the visible screen (report by Stuart Henderson).
    * correct logic used to improve performance of missing-glyph check,
      which did not handle line-drawing characters (Debian #545220).
  - Patch #247 - 2009/8/30
    * add ifdef's and check for openpty() on DragonFly (patch by Alex
    * correct calculation for size of line's data block, which was
      sometimes off-by-one when configured using --enable-16bit-chars
      (report by H Merijn Brand).
    * fix indexing error in print-everything feature from patch #246
      (patch by Ovidiu Gheorghioiu).
  - Patch #246 - 2009/8/16
    * remove obsolete logic for saving/restoring wrapping flags, which did
      not work on 64-bit platform. Wrapping flags (stored in the
      line-index) are now copied with line-data (Debian #541160).
    * modify comments in app-defaults files to avoid problem with C
      preprocessor used by xrdb (Debian #541603).
    * restore special case in makeColorPair, needed for colorBDMode
      resource (Debian #541089).
    * correct SetLineFlags() macro, broken in patch #244 when recoding
      to avoid gcc-specific bitfields (Debian #541236).
    * modify initialization of screen buffers to ensure that pointers
      align to int-boundaries. This fixes a problem introduced in patch
      [#244] where the color- and character-arrays (stored after the
      video-attributes in each row) might be misaligned (report by Rajeev
      V Pillai).
    * add limit-check in ScrnRefresh for handling saved-lines from the
      circular buffer which are repainted on a screen whose width has
      increased. To improve performance, circular buffer entries are
      not resized (report by Rajeev V Pillai).
    * correct type for CellColor (a late change in patch #244 to avoid
      gcc-specifc enums made that unsigned rather than unsigned short,
      for the 256-color option).
    * fix typo in configure option --enable-16bit-chars (report by Rajeev
      V. Pillai).
  - Patch #245 - 2009/8/12
    * correct a special case in saving FIFO-lines from patch #244. If
      the screen was shrunk, xterm used the wrong amount for copying to
      FIFO-lines, and then used this amount to adjust the current row
      on the screen. That was both a visible defect (Debian #541109)
      as well as a potential addressing error (Debian #541132, #541160,
      and #541236).
    * add clarification in xterm manual about the various allowXXXOps
      resources, which are disabled when the allowSendEvents resource
      is active (patch by Julien Cristau, Debian #531597).
  - Patch #244 - 2009/8/9
    * refactored storage of saved-lines, providing a configure
      option to manage them as a FIFO (actually a circular buffer),
      improving performance. Added configure option --enable-fifo-lines
      to enable/disable the new feature (it is enabled by default).
    * added fastScroll resource, to amuse people who measure terminal
      emulator performance by cat'ing large files to the screen.
    * modify check in readPtyData from return values to provide exit
      on zero-bytes read from pty for FreeBSD, or eliminate high-CPU
      in "xterm-hold" processing (discussion with Ulrich Spoerlein,
      FreeBSD ports/136686). The check was originally modified to combine
      negative/zero values in XFree86-3.1.2E, 1996/05/06.
    * add configure option --enable-16bit-chars to provide wide-characters
      with 1account whether they are double-width (report by Guilbert
      Stabilo on
    * add capability for keypad-center (kb2/KA2) to termcap entry
      for xterm-new, as well as xterm-8bit, xterm-sun and xterm-vt220
      (FreeBSD conf/136336).
    * change default for keepSelection resource to true (prompted by
      discussion with David Muir Sharnoff).
    * remove a limit-check in ptydata.c, allowing Unicode values past
      64k to be displayed using TrueType fonts (Debian #458432).
    * remove a vt52-specific ifdef to allow mapping F1-F4 to PF1-PF4
      when vt52 support is not compiled (report by Olaf 'Rhialto' Seibert).
    * save/restore line-wrapping flags when converting from ISO-8859-1
      encoding to UTF-8 encoding, as well as when resizing screen.
    * remove extra adjustment of position in fix for Debian #418324.
    * modify default check for mkWidth resource to check for line-drawing
      characters, which are categorized as double-width in Solaris 10
      (report by Sebastian Kayser).
    * add "print-everything" action (patch by Ovidiu Gheorghioiu).
    * start refactoring scrollback data using new getLineData() function.
    * demote recent change to Debian #252873 fix to experimental,
      ifdef'd out as EXP_BOGUS_FG (Debian #522141).
    * work around groff mapping of ASCII quotes using macros (requested
      by Reuben Thomas based on Colin Watson advice, fixes Debian #378700).
    * correct symbol used for default of allowWindowOps which was
      DEF_ALLOW_FONT rather than DEF_ALLOW_WINDOW (report by Matthieu
    * amend fix for tek4014 from patch #243 to make it only apply to
      the Tek Options menu.
    Patch #243 - 2009/3/28
    * revert change to default for allowTcapOps (request by Bram Moolenaar).
    * reallocate result returned by xtermEnvLocale() to avoid reference
      to freed memory after handling menuLocale resource.
    * fix an old (X11R5) bug in tek4014 for switching fontsizes.
    * add resource defaultString to make configurable the use of "#"
      when pastes of UTF-8 text fail due to limitations in the current
      locale settings.
    * make the set of selection target Atom's configurable by two new
      resources eightBitSelectTypes and utf8SelectTypes, e.g., to use the
      TEXT Atom in preference to UTF8_STRING (discussion with Stanislav
      Sedov regarding koi8rxterm and the FreeBSD port).
    * modify handling of TARGETS Atom by making it return exactly the
      set of targets as those which xterm is currently providing.
    * set MANPAGER and PAGER explicitly to /bin/cat in
      to work around /etc/man.conf's with those variables already set
      (report by ÐаÑÑÑÑиÐ&frac; СеÐ&frac;ÑÐ&frac;).
    * improve error-checking of tcap-query parser.
    * add check for keyboard tcap), which ensures that terminal
      descriptions containing the same string for shifted/unshifted keys
      will be seen by tcap-query as only the unshifted key. (This would
      only happen with an incorrect terminal description).
    * fix conversion for input event-state to modifier-parameter which
      made tcap-query feature not work with tcapFunctionKeys (keyboard
      type tcap).
    * add "DEF_ALLOW_XXX" definitions to main.h to allow overriding the
      default compiled-in values for "allowxxx" resources.
    * remove check on bell-percentage added in patch #242, which
      disallowed zero/negative values (Redhat Bugzilla #487829).
