Summary: Native Language Support (NLS) for C#
Mono with its 'resgen' program uses a design that Microsoft created and
that gives the power to the software vendor and not to the user: it
doesn't allow the end-user to create his own localisations for existing
programs. As documented in the gettext manual:

The advantages of the .dll' format over the .resources' format are:

1. 1. Freedom to localize: Users can add their own translations to an
   application after it has been built and distributed.  Whereas
   when the programmer uses a ResourceManager' constructor provided
   by the system, the set of .resources' files for an application
   must be specified when the application is built and cannot be
   extended afterwards.

2., 3., 4. ...

The included GNU.Gettext.dll gives the user this freedom back and the
also included and handle PO files more
reliably than 'resgen'.

* Tue Dec 21 2010
  - Update to 0.18.1. Changes since 0.17:
    Version 0.18.1 - June 2010
    * msggrep: A '$' anchor in a regular expression now also matches
      the end of the string, even if it does not end in a newline.
    * Dependencies:
      The libraries and programs are now linked with libunistring if
      this library is already installed.
    * Installation options:
      The configure option --with-cvs is deprecated. The 'autopoint'
      program will now use the 'git' program by default to compress its
      archive.  If the configure option --without-git is specified,
      'autopoint' will not rely on 'git', but will instead rely on a
      locally installed 3 MB large archive.
    Version 0.18 - May 2010
    * PO file format:
      There is a new field 'Language' in the header entry.  It denotes
      the language code (plus optional country code) for the PO file.
      This field can be used by automated tools, such as spell
      checkers. It is expected to be more reliable than looking at the
      file name or at the 'Language-Team' field in the header entry.
      msgmerge, msgcat, msgen have a new option --lang that allows to
      specify this field. Additionally, msgmerge fills in this new
      field by looking at the 'Language-Team' field (if the --lang
      option is not given).
    * xgettext and PO file format:
      For messages with plural forms, programmers can inform the
      translators about the range of possible values of the numeric
      argument, like this:
      /* xgettext: range: 0..15 */
      This information 'range: 0..15' is stored in the PO file as a
      flag attached to the message. Translators can produce better
      translations when they know that the numeric argument is small.
    * Colorized PO files:
      msgattrib, msgcomm, msgconv, msgen, msgfilter, msggrep, msginit,
      msgmerge, msgunfmt, msguniq, xgettext now have options --color
      and --style, like msgcat has since version 0.17.
    * msgmerge is up to 10 times faster when the PO and POT files are
      large. This speedup was contributed by Ralf Wildenhues.
    * msgcmp has a new option -N/--no-fuzzy-matching, like msgmerge has
      since version 0.12.
    * msgfilter now sets environment variables during the invocation of
      the filter, indicating the msgid and location of the messge being
    * xgettext now can extract plural forms from Qt 4 programs. The
      recommended xgettext command-line options for this case are:
    - -qt --keyword=tr:1,1t --keyword=tr:1,2c,2t --keyword=tr:1,1,2c,3t
    * xgettext --language=GCC-source now recognizes also the format
      strings used in the Fortran front-end of the GCC compiler, and
      marks them as 'gfc-internal-format'.
    * autopoint can now be used to update several PO directories all
    * PO mode changes:
    - PO files with plural entries are now correctly handled.
    - Editing a message with previous msgid (in comments) removes these
      comments.  Contributed by Noritada Kobayashi.
    * The po/Makevars file has a new field MSGMERGE_OPTIONS, that can
      be used to adjust msgmerge's operation.
    * The use of the macro AM_GNU_GETTEXT without 'external' argument
      and the --intl option of the gettextize program are deprecated
      and will be removed in the next release. Instead of including
      the intl sources in your package, we suggest making the libintl
      library an (optional) prerequisite of your package.
    * Updated the meaning of 'gcc-internal-format' to match GCC 4.3.
    * Installation options:
      The configure options --without-cvs and --with-git can be used to
      specify whether 'autopoint' will use the 'cvs' program, or the
      'git' program, or none at all. These options allow to trade
      dependencies against installed package size: If --without-cvs is
      specified and --with-git is not specified, 'autopoint' will not
      rely on 'cvs' or 'git', but will instead rely on a locally
      installed a 3 MB large archive.
    * Portability: The msgfilter program now also works on native Woe32
    - platforms. Compiled C# message catalogs now also work with
    - 'mono' versions from 2009
      or newer.
* Fri Mar 05 2010
  - remove gettext-tools/gnulib-m4/openmp.m4: fix build with new
* Mon Jul 27 2009
  - Remove rather than %exclude not packaged files
* Tue Oct 14 2008
  - Never install files in %check section
  - Disable autoconf/libtool tests
* Mon Oct 13 2008
  - Fix autoreconf call
* Sun May 18 2008
  - Fix segmentation fault in msgmerge (bnc#391372).
* Tue Dec 04 2007
  - Add patch from upstreams to add the missing mode for the open call.
* Fri Nov 23 2007
  - Remove the patch for disabling a test.
* Fri Nov 16 2007
  - Don't run the testsuite.
* Thu Nov 15 2007
  - Rename packages: gettext -> gettext-runtime and
      gettext-devel -> gettext->tools
    Packaging closely follows uptream recommendation with a few
  - Initialize variable to shut up gcc.
  - Disable msgmerge-compendium-5 for now.
  - Update to 0.17:
    * License:
    The gettext related programs and tools are now licensed under the GPL
    version 3, instead of the GPL version 2.
    * PO file format:
    The Project-Id-Version field in the header entry may now already be filled
    in the POT file. In this case, the translators don't need to fill it in.
    xgettext has new options --package-name and --package-version that allow
    to specify the package name and version from a Makefile.
    * Colorized PO files:
    The msgcat program has new options --color and --style that produce a
    colorized PO file output, where keywords, strings, comments, or format
    directives can be highlighted.  See the documentation section
    "Highlighting parts of PO files" for more info.
    * gettextize now has a --po-dir option that allows several PO directories to
    be updated all together.
    * Programming languages support:
    - Contexts (msgctxt) are now also supported for Java and C#.
    - C# with Qt: The support for Qt format strings has been updated for Qt 4.
    - C++ with KDE:
      xgettext has a new option --kde that triggers the recognition and marking
      of KDE 4 format strings.
    * Autoconf macros:
    - A new macro AM_XGETTEXT_OPTION can be used as an alternative to modifying
    * libgettextpo library:
    - New functions are available for querying the list of supported format
    - The functions po_message_comments and po_message_extracted_comments
      return a multiline string where each line no longer starts with a
      redundant space. The leading space in every comment line is now stripped
      while reading the PO file.
    - Conversely, when you pass a multiline string to the function
      po_message_set_comments or po_message_set_extracted_comments, you normally
      don't pass a space at the beginning of each line, because such spaces are
      no longer trimmed during output.
    * Documentation:
    - The "Users" chapter has been completely rewritten.
    - New section "Highlighting parts of PO files".
    - A complete example showing the use of GNU gettext in Java with the Qt/Jambi
    GUI toolkit has been added.
  - Add tcl and perl-libintl-perl to BuildRequires (testsuite needs
  - Remove call to gl_AC_TYPE_LONG_LONG from libasprintf's
