  - Update to version 1.3-20190211
    + modify to work with ncurses' threaded-library, which does not allow
      assignment to LINES/COLS (report by Marcus Roeckrath).
    + correct clearing after text in progressbox from 2018/06/21 changes
      for resizing (reports by David Boyd, Alan Somers).
    + improved configure macros CF_GNU_SOURCE, CF_POSIX_C_SOURCE,
    + update config.guess, config.sub
  - Includes also version 1.3-20181107
    + convert ja.po to UTF-8 for consistency (suggested by Stanislav
    + repair mis-encoded hi.po (report/analysis by Stanislav Brabec).
  - Includes also version 1.3-20181022
    + improved configure macros CF_CC_ENV_FLAGS, CF_LD_RPATH_OPT,
      CF_WITH_VERSIONED_SYMS from ncurses
    + add ast.po, from
  - Includes also version 1.3-20180621
    + improve file-offset computation in textbox.c (Werner Fink).
    + fix an overlooked case with real_auto_size() to maximize when
      height or width is given as -1.
    + build-fixes for configure options "--disable-Xdialog2" and
    + add traces for each widget to show its parameters.
    + modify color scheme for mixedgauge to use the dialog window colors,
      like the captions.
    + fix a too-small malloc in the mixedgauge widget.
    + fix a use-after-free in dlg_remove_callback().
    + improve handling of SIGWINCH for several widgets (Debian #865840).
      + menubox, the point of the Debian report was that it would be nice
      to increase the window size if the terminal size increases.  Did
      that as a special case less problematic than decreasing the
      terminal size.  Added samples/menubox11 to demonstrate by
      comparison with menubox10 a problem with debconf which puts extra
      newlines in the caption that interfere with autowrap.
      + progressbox and derived prgbox, programbox, now handle resizing.
      + yesno, window was cleared
    + add dlg_ttysize() to support new options, allowing scripts to obtain
      some text-formatting details without initializing the terminal.
    + add options --print-text-only, and --print-text-size for scripts that
      adjust the widget size according to how the captions are formatted.
    + improve
      + add, to demonstrate the functions
      + quote/escape string parameters passed to dialog.
      + ensure all "integer" parameters are really integers.
      + use actual screensize for list captions rather than assuming 24
    + when trimming blanks, treat unconverted tabs the same as spaces.
    + correct parameter to test when trimming blanks from the script,
      e.g., with "--trim" (report by Jarno Suni).
    + improve documentation of the various whitespace-filtering options,
      to show which take precedence (Debian #867536, cf: Debian #102942).
    + modify msgbox.c, yesno.c to bind SCROLLKEY_BINDINGS before
      TRAVERSE_BINDINGS so that up/down arrow will by default scroll the
      message up/down rather than be aliases for tab-traversal (report by
      Fredrik Kers).
    + modify dump_one_binding() to show when a binding is overridden.
    + improve format of trace-file, making comment-syntax consistent,
      as well as showing argv-splitting as a series of comments.
    + modify dlg_string_to_argv() to change the quoting behavior to be
      more consistent with shell behavior (patch by Denilson Sa Maia).
    + modify dlg_getc() to return ESC when a timeout expires, notifying
      callers that a quit occurred rather than exiting the application
      (suggested by Rodrigo Freitas).
    + modify handle_inputs() to ensure cursor-visibility is restored when
      there is no input character available (report by Guillaume Vareille).
    + improve comment in manual page regarding which widgets can use the
      "--help-button" (prompted by discussion with Csanyi Pal).
    + add a check for valid object pointer in tailbox's main loop since
      the getc-callback may have been freed within ui_getc.c (report by
    + improved configure macros for ncurses: CF_GNU_SOURCE, CF_SHARED_OPTS,
    + improved configure script checks for groff vs man2html:
    + build-fix from lynx for AM_WITH_NLS configure macro
    + update config.guess, config.sub

  - Modify patch dialog-1.2-20121230.dif
* Wed Nov 07 2018
  - Fix mangled Hindi translation (bsc#1115005).
* Tue May 29 2018
  - Update to version 1.3-20171209
    + update ftp url in test-packages.
    + modify test-packages to use recommended compiler/linker flags.
    + improved configure macros AM_WITH_NLS, CF_CC_ENV_FLAGS,
    + update config.guess, config.sub
  - Add patch textbox-file_size.patch to fix bug bsc#1094836
* Tue Jun 06 2017
  - Update to version 1.3-20170509:
    * improved configure macros CF_ADD_CFLAGS, CF_CC_ENV_FLAGS, and
    * updated hu.po and tr.po from
    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Tue Mar 07 2017
  - Update to version 1.3-20170131
    * use DLG_TRACE macro consistently to make "--disable-trace" configure
    option work.
    * modify buildlist widget to support option "--reorder" for to allow
      user to reorder the data based on the sequence of selections
      (discussion with Paraic O'Ceallaigh).
    * fill background color on unused parts of buildlist.
    * fix a minor error in buildlist which let pageup switch columns.
    * change several calls to dlg_trace_msg to prefix with "#" to make
      the trace logs more consistent for parsing.
    * add samples/
    * further improve performance with very long command-lines by changes
      to howmany_tags().
    * modify dlg_string_to_argv() to convert escaped double-quotes to
      plain double-quotes when within a double-quoted string.
    * modify makefile to apply CFLAGS to linking
    * modify dlg_string_to_argv() to ignore escaped newlines except when
      quoted, fixing a problem with samples/checklist9.
    * interpret $DIALOGOPTS before expanding "--file", etc., to allow
      the environment variable to turn on tracing in that process.
    * improve performance when processing very long command lines, e.g.,
      using "--file" by changing dialog_opts[] to an array of pointers to
      the expanded argv[] (discussion with Lars Tauber).
    * modified autoconf macros
      + CF_CC_ENV_FLAGS amend the last change to move only the
      preprocessor, optimization and warning flags to CPPFLAGS and
      CFLAGS, leaving the residue in CC.  That happens to work for gcc's
      various "model" options, but may require tuning for other compilers
      + CF_LARGEFILE workaround for clang exit-code vs warnings
      + CF_MATH_LIB quiet strict gcc warning
      + CF_WITH_LIBTOOL fix a few places in configure/build scripts where

    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Fri Mar 11 2016
  - Update to 1.3-20160209
    * modify editbox widget to add a trailing newline if the text
      has none to ensure the last line is not ignored (report by
      Florent Rougon).
    * change mouse initialization to look for button-presses rather
      than button-clicks, for better response.
    * modify dump_curses_key() to show mouse-coding in readable form.
    * correct mapping of mouse-clicks on the day-grid in calendar
      widget when "--week-start" is used to set the start of the week
      (report by Stefan Vogtner).
    * integrated changes from Stefan Vogtner:
    * use Gregorian algorithm for leap year
    * use mktime if available; calendar was written just as it became
  - Changes for version 1.3
    * correct --infobox documentation, which said it shows an OK
    * fix a couple of place in test-scripts which referred to
      $SIG_TRAP rather than $SIG_QUIT
    * reorganize dialog.3, to use subsections for generating navigation
      pane, using man2html
    * add "--week-start" option for calendar widget (prompted by
      discussion with Stefan Vogtner).
    * add a limit-check in editbox.c to ensure that mouse-clicks
      outside the filled-in text area do not access past the end of
      the array (report by Stefan Vogtner).
    * update configure macros from ncurses changes.
    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Mon Sep 28 2015

      CF_NCURSES_CONFIG from work on ncurses.
    * build-fix for NetBSD curses

    + add --with-screen and related configure options from ncurses-examples
      to allow building with ncurses6 test-packages.
    + update configure macros for improved coding style from lynx changes.
    + updated ro.po from
    + update config.guess, config.sub
    > patches by Florent Rougon:
    + fix two bugs in the "--file" option.
      + When the number of arguments read from the included file is 0, the
      code used to just skip over '--file' and its argument instead of
      removing them from the argument list, causing "Error:  Unknown
      option --file" later on.
      + In the alternative case (at least one argument read from the file),
      the previous code used to do '--j;' in order to "force rescan" of
      the inserted arguments.  However, control then flowed to outer
      blocks where a '++j;' counteracted this measure, causing "Error:
      Unknown option --msgbox" (for instance) later on.
    + modify escaping in argv.c to be more uniform, whether or not the
      backslash is found within a parameter.
* Thu Mar 05 2015
  - Hack around bug in libtool as it seems to be broken in shell
    function func_lalib_unsafe_p() as this does only work if a
    file descriptor 0 exists.
