* Fri Nov 10 2017
  - xterm-settings.patch
    * define also wideBoldFont to get rid of a warning (bsc#1067530)
* Thu Aug 10 2017
  - Patch #330 - 2017/06/20
    * updates for ReGIS (Ross Combs):
      + remove redundant text command error check which broke
      T(B) and T(E).
      + retain the loading alphabet number across multiple “L”
      + add S(T) delay handler.
      + fix some color handling error messages.
      + add stubbed-out macrograph handling.
      + use fragment_remaining() and fragment_consumed() instead
      of manually checking position / length in various places.
      + rename some local variables in string / extent / option
      + wrap some long lines.
      + move macrograph command handling out of the top-level.
    * add a summary of the italic fonts loaded to -report-fonts
    * modify the font-lookup for italics to allow for “-i-” if no
      match is found with slant “-o-” (prompted by patch by Ben
    * change default values for mkSamplePass and mkSampleSize to
      reflect generally-improved locale support in various
      operating systems (FreeBSD #219800).
    * modify wcwidth.c to return -1 for non-Unicode values, and
      adjust a couple of blocks to better match assumptions about
      ambiguous-width characters in other implementations. Also
      modify wcwidth.c to support configurable soft-hyphen, so
      there is no drawback to using this version rather than a
      system wcwidth.
    * amend change made in patch #328 for cursor-visibility to
      handle case where an application is updating the
      reverse-video state (FreeBSD #219800).
    * update tables of combining and ambiguous-width characters in
      wcwidth.c based on Unicode 10.0.0.
    * build-fix for --enable-sixel-graphics without
    - -enable-regis-graphics (reports by Sven Joachim, FreeBSD
  - Patch #329 - 2017/06/12
    * add control sequences for reading the Sixel and ReGIS
      graphics sizes (suggested by Ben Wong).
    * add a workaround for wcwidth returning -1 for characters
      which should have been printable (FreeBSD #219800).
    * fix a bug in font initialization from patch #328 (FreeBSD
    * fix a special case in HideCursor which assigned a bold font
      to the slot used for normal font in changes for italics in
      patch #307 (Debian #858304).
    * updates for ReGIS (Ross Combs):
      + Strings specified with no command are used as "comments".
      Print these in the log when tracing.
      + Catch attempts to use "alternate display" mode (AKA
      "blink") from the GIGI, but do not implement it.
      + The T(M) command should only multiply the height by 10,
      not 20.
      + Make the S(E) command reset more state than just the
      screen contents.
      + Remove two rotation variables which were only being
      + Numerous minor fixes and comment updates in the R
      + Unknown R command option names trigger an empty response.
      + Fix the output position after printing rotated text (it
      was missing the the sign before).
      + Fix the position change with pixelvectors and rotated
      text (the rotation transform was not being applied).
      + Update the TODO list and remove a verification FIXME
      (slanted text positioning is correct as is).
      + Emulate the approximately 1.4x enlargement for text which
      isn't rotated at right angles.
      + Only update the color planes specified in the plane mask
      (the W command's F option).
    * fix a bug introduced by the changes to font information in
      patch #328. When processing the "checkfont" option of the
      locale resource, the program referred to the request data, to
      an array which was only allocated in the new/result widget
      (report by H Merijn Brand).
    * fix a missing assignment initialization to make the utf8
      resource control whether escape sequences to enable/disable
      UTF-8 mode are allowed.
  - Patch #328 - 2017/06/01
    * revise parser for charClass resource, making these
      + accept octal and hexadecimal values
      + allow embedded whitespace
      + allow the class after colon to be optional, e.g., to
      clear class settings for a range of characters.
    * add command-line option -report-charclass.
    * fix most lintian warnings about test-package
    * add eraseSavedLines resource.
    * document DECSED 3 in (report by Ben Longmans).
    * improve integration between configure-events and updates for
      reported screensize, in particular when switching between
      vt100 and tek4014 modes.
    * modify selection-highlighting of reverse-video text to keep
      that distinct, e.g., by reversing the selection foreground
      and background colors as one would expect. This fixes a
      "useless" case in the description of highlightColorMode.
    * improve fix for Debian #759734, addressing a case where
      non-colored cursor would be invisible against reverse-video
      (see patch #311).
    * updates for ReGIS (Ross Combs):
      + the "H" option of the "T" command should multiply by 10,
      not 20.
      + display unknown glyphs as a solid block.
      + given a succession of text-direction options, use the
      + fix the direction of ReGIS slanted text so that negative
      values produce oblique output .
      + fix the ReGIS text direction option to only rotate
      characters when no following size option is used.
    * update terminfo to better match corresponding entries in
      ncurses, e.g., u8 pattern to match the VT220, VT420, etc.,
      primary responses, as well as adding smxx and rmxx.
    * fixes from Jörg Sommer:
      + corrected a trace-message regarding maximum
      graphics-size; it used the similar ReGIS maximum size
      which might not be configured.
      + in do_select_regex, clear selection if there is no match.
      If the regex does not match anything around the cursor,
      the selection returned must be empty, otherwise the whole
      line is treated as a match. This way the command defined
      by exec-selectable will not be executed if there is no
      + modify limit in do_select_regex to include the character
      at the cursor in the match, making it easier to type
      something and then hit the key to trigger
      + If exec-selectable or insert-selection is triggered by a
      mouse button click, the position of the mouse pointer
      should be used. This makes it easier to address any
      position on the window and it makes it possible to use
      the mouse, e.g., for applications such as mutt where you
      cannot move the cursor.
    * modify DECRC to save/restore xterm's last-column flag used to
      control wrapping behavior rather than manipulating DECAWM
      (report/analysis by Mattias Engdegård).
    * add configure option --enable-terminfo-env to use the value
      set by --with-own-terminfo for the $TERMINFO environment
      variable. That variable was set automatically for HPUX, but
      would be useful in other systems, e.g., for Solaris (request
      by Jeff Wieland).
    * fix a race condition when setting up a signal handler to
      timeout if opening /dev/tty hangs (patch by Tobias
    * review/cleanup resources which were not in the manual page
      (report by Maxwell Anselm):
      + add manual page description as needed.
      + drop resource name for menuBar, as unnecessary.
      + modify fallback numeric value for regisScreenSize
      resource to match that for maxGraphicSize.
    * updated configure macros CF_ADD_CFLAGS, CF_CC_ENV_FLAGS,
    * update config.guess, config.sub
    * change “maximum screensize” assumed by resize to 9999x9999,
      to accommodate people using the Unreadable font.
    * drop Utility from default value of --with-desktop-category
      (Debian #780176).
    * widen the configure script pattern used for finding related
      ".desktop" files, including “Terminal”
    * several minor improvements to font utility functions:
      + provide for later modification to implement font-sets by
      parsing the font resources as comma-separated lists.
      + parse -fn and -fa similarly, using “x:” and “xft:”
      prefixes for font name/family strings to distinguish
      between XLFD and Xft font specifications.
      + use loops to iterate over font classes
      + use getters/setters for font data to allow for on-demand
      + make the debugging trace for missing glyph less verbose
      since that interferes with the -report-fonts option.
      + refactor xtermLoadFont to make it clearer how some fonts
      are derived from others, e.g., bold, wide.
      + make the triggering and suppressing of font-warnings more
      consistent by storing the last state in the widget.
      + reduce font-warnings by checking for repeated warnings.
    * add vttests/
    * add vttests/closest-rgb
    * add special case for displaying soft-hyphen if it happens to
      fall at the right margin, and omitting similar case such as
      the BIDI markers, where a zero-width character is neither a
      control character nor a combining character (Debian #844325).
    * modify logic for OSC 52, manipulate selection data, to update
      the selection-time to include the latest X events. This fixes
      some cases where the selection was invalid, e.g., after an
      event due to focus-follows-mouse (report/testcase by Stephane
    * revise macro CastMallocN as new macro TextAlloc to make
      explicit use of sizeof(char) (prompted by patch by Cade
    * add “Mouse Ops” menu entry and related resources to allow
      runtime disabling/enabling of the mouse protocol escape
      sequences (discussion with Bob Proulx).
    * improve discussion of mouse actions versus protocol in the
      manual (discussion with Bob Proulx).
    * improve discussion of environment variables in the manual,
      pointing out where some features (such as termcap and the
      System5 COLUMNS and LINES variables) are used rarely, mainly
      to support legacy applications.
    * add examples of translations resource for select/paste, and
      for font-size changes to the manual.
    * minor reordering of some entries in for
      consistency (report by Arran Ubels).
    * add -s option to and, to
      demonstrate modifying the “system” colors 0–15.
    * omit XFT_SPACING property from call to XftPatternBuild, to
      work around a bug in fontconfig for handling Google Go fonts,
      whose names sort in an order not expected by fontconfig,
      causing the request for a monospaced font to return italics,
      $ fc-match 'Go Mono:spacing=monospace'
      Go-Mono-Italic.ttf: "Go Mono" "Italic"
      (report by Giacomo Boffi on Stackoverflow).
    * modify to improve a workaround added to the
      manual page in patch #182 to avoid having the C preprocessor
      used in the imake configuration strip out the comments in the
      character classes section (reports by Ted Unangst, Anthony J
  - patch rebase:
* Sat Apr 29 2017
  - call gzip -n to make build fully reproducible
* Mon Nov 21 2016
  - Patch #327 - 2016/10/07
    * add a check in the function which handles end-of-line
    wrapping to ensure that C1 controls are allocated one column
    when allowC1Printable is set (Debian #738794).
    * use consistent error-checking after strtol calls, fixes a
    case where a query with OSC 6 did not ensure there was a
    valid color number (report by Alex Smith).
    * add -baudrate option, for testing ncurses.
    * always generate the CASE_xxx symbols in VTparse.h and
    Tekparse.h, as part of a change to improve debug-logging.
    This makes the build always depend upon awk.
    * modify allowC1Printable to disallow codes 160-254 as being
    equivalent to codes 32-126 when parsing escape sequences
    (Debian #839220).
    * amend fix from patch #326 for TrueType fonts to exclude the
    hidden character used for double-width cells (report by Grady
    * fix a typo in
* Wed Oct 05 2016
  - Patch #326 - 2016/09/25

    * improve discussion of the different terminal emulations
      provided by xterm in the manual page.
    * add examples of setting the icon title with/without the
      window title in the manual (Debian #833984).
    * correct a limit-check when using a numeric value for extended
      Booleans e.g., *fullscreen:3 rather than a name such as
    * fullscreen:never.
    * add action allow-bold-fonts
    * improved formatting fixes for manual page, using script to
      find mismatches in spelling of resources, actions and menu
    * improve documentation of logging resources.
    * fix a special case of flickering cursor by adding
      GraphicsExpose to the list of event types that should not
      trigger making the mouse cursor visible (patch by Joe
    * correct initialization of line-drawing in VT52-mode,
      overlooked in changes for patch #297 (report/patch by Ben
      Wiley Sittler).
    * minor clarification of form-feed versus line-feed in (suggested by David Kemper).
    * amend fix for Debian #738794 to restore a check for missing
      characters which are not combining characters. Also fill in
    a corresponding special case for TrueType fonts
    (Debian #827905).
* Thu Jun 23 2016
  - Patch #325 - 2016/06/05
    * improve manual page discussion of function keys (discussion
      with Ross Combs).
    * further improve fix for Debian #545220 in patch #248, to
      avoid conflict with combining characters (Debian #738794).
    * improve -hold option to avoid 100% CPU usage with NetBSD
      after closing the shell, which makes subsequent checks for X
      input events fail (prompted by patch by Pierre Pronchery).
    * review #ifdef statements, listed those which do not have a
      configure option in xtermcfg.hin.
    * fixed one case where the menu sensistivity for Print-All
      Immediately and Print-All on Error was not properly ifdef'd.
    * modify terminfo entries for 16-, 88- and 256-color to reset
      palette with rs1 capability.
    * accept legacy value of -kt as synonym for the oldXtermFKeys
      resource, and extend the full-reset logic to use the keyboard
      type set via -kt.
    * modify ioctl calls for I_PUSH to first check if the module
      has been added, using I_FIND. This is needed for newer
      Solaris libraries with c11 support (adapted from patch by
      Alan Coopersmith).
    * add check in getXtermCombining to ensure that combining
      characters were allocated (report by Tor Andersson).
    * add configure option --without-xinerama to allow suppressing
      the extension (Gentoo #580936).
    * update keysym2ucs.c based on Unicode 9.0
    * fixed most cppcheck --enable=all warnings, including for
      style (prompted by report by David Binderman). There was one
      + RGB least-squares computation in allocateClosestRGB used
      only one ordinate
    * add cppcheck to lint-like programs in configure script and
    * updates for SIXEL and ReGIS (Ross Combs):
      + Fixes some const correctness issues and points out an
      array lifetime issue
      + Sixel drawing should still happen after an error if some
      commands have been processed
      + Tiny steps toward reporting ReGIS input
* Mon Mar 14 2016
  - Patch #324 - 2016/03/10
    * updated configure macro CF_LD_RPATH_OPT from ncurses changes.
    * provide alternate fix for Juha Nurmela's report by turning on
      POSIX signals if _POSIX_C_SOURCE is at least one. This is
      done to improve the behavior if a direct child process
      receives a STOP signal.
    * revert change to CF_POSIX_C_SOURCE from patch #323
      (reports by Ashish Shukla, Christian Weisgerber).
  - Patch #323 - 2016/03/07
    * updated appdata and desktop files to add keywords (report by
      Richard Hughes).
    * modify configure macro CF_POSIX_C_SOURCE to accommodate some
      systems, e.g., FreeBSD, which have separated their
      implementation specific preprocessor symbols from the POSIX
      ones, requiring both to be defined (report by Juha Nurmela).
    * change the directory to the current working dir of the child
      process in exec-formatted and exec-selectable actions (patch
      by Alexander Pohoyda).

    * fix regression due to incorrect fix for compiler warning when
      allocating storage for /etc/shells (reports by Ashish Shukla,
      Debian #809646).
  - Patch #321 - 2015/12/31
    * add resource keepClipboard, escape sequence and action
    * add optional feature to capture text copied to clipboard at
      the time of copying rather than at the time the clipboard
      contents are requested for pasting (patch by Milan Mehner).
    * improve a special case where the -e option was used to pass a
      single-quoted command via luit, by wrapping it in a “sh -c”
      (report by Keith Hedger).
    * minor fix for type-cleanliness when allocating storage for
      /etc/shells (Tobias Stoeckmann).
    * fix a typo in manual page (Dan Church).
    * fix minor file-descriptor leak; after calling openpty, the
      slave's file descriptor is not needed (report by Juha

    * update config.guess, config.sub
  - vttest 20140305
    * save/restore color enable-flag for menu 11.6 in a couple of
      places so that the ISO-6429 tests do not reset it
    * amend the REP test to not reset colors if it happens to be
      run via the menu entry for BCE-related tests.
  - vttest 20140116
    * cosmetic changes (suggested by Itay Chamiel):
      + clear screen just before resetting SCS in menu #3 character
      sets, in case a VT100 emulator does not simply ignore VT220
      G2/G3 selections when it does not implement them.
      + add check for maximum operating level before deciding
      whether to send a DECSCL to set it to VT100-level.
      + adjust starting point of items for menu #9 "Test of known
      bugs" to avoid overwriting part of the description of the
    * add configure check for -Wlogical-op to gcc-warnings
    * update config.guess, config.sub
  - vttest 20130915
    * when NRCS is active, suppress ISO Latin-1 from menu to avoid
      confusion with British NRCS.
    * do not highlight ISO Latin-1 for NRCS, since it is a
      96-character set, not applicable to NRCS.
    * correct position of ruler for SD and REP screens, which
      obscured the result.
    * expand menu 11.6.6 to demonstrate bce with top-level menus 1
      and 2 in addition to the existing menu 8.
    * correct description for DA response 24; it denotes VT320.

    * update config.guess, config.sub
  - vttest 20130818
    * modify character-sets screens to optionally highlight the
      characters which do not correspond to ISO-8859-1.  This makes
      the National Replacement Characters easier to see.
    * modify DSR cursor-position report to check if the terminal
      accounts for origin-mode.
    * support --datarootdir option in, to match
      configure script updates.
    * updated configure macros:
      + change from byacc for autoheader
      + improved checks for gcc attributes
      + improved checks for gcc version
      + miscellaneous fixes in CF_XOPEN_SOURCE

  - vttest 20120603
    * change cursor-position before IL/DL in "Test of VT102-style
      features with BCE (Insert/Delete Char/Line)" to demonstrate
      whether the terminal sets the cursor to the first column as a
      side-effect, as noted in VT220 reference manual.
  - remove vttest-config_update_aarch64.patch since the current
    vttest sports newer config version

  - Patch #319 - 2015/08/19
    * add a section to discussing control sequences and
      ECMA-48, to explain why C1 controls do not occur in the
      decoded characters from UTF-8 byte streams (prompted by
      discussion with Poul-Henning Kamp).
    * modify check for cursor-theme from patch #301 to also check
      if the resource Xcursor.theme is set to a nonempty value
      before fallback to xterm's own dummy theme (request by Robert
    * explain in that some keys which normally send
      SS3-prefixes are changed to CSI-prefixes if key-modifiers are
      passed as parameters (report by George Nachman).
    * correct double-free of font information when multiple
      problems are found, particularly for the wide fonts loaded

      (report by William Bulley).
    * correct combination of -ls and -e options for utempter
      configuration (Debian #794201).
    * NetBSD build-fix for OPT_RENDERFONT versus OPT_SHIFT_FONTS
      (patch by Matthew Green, forwarded by Thomas Klausner).
    * fix a few minor bugs found with Coverity.
    * update pixelvector handling (Ross Combs):

      parts factored out to a "raw" function
      + add a "step" variant which loads a single PV digit
    * make the graphic dirty upon resize or clear, fixing some

    * revert change to make DCH honor top/bottom scrolling margins.
      For the record, both the VT420 and VT520 reference manuals
      incorrectly state that "DCH has no effect outside the
      scrolling margins."
    * fix regression in DCH introduced in adjustment for
      limit-check in patch #315 (report/testcase by Zoltán Kéri,
      also reported by Christian Weisgerber).
    * correct default value for configure option
    - -enable-initial-erase; it should be "False", but in patch
      [#315] it was "Maybe", which differed from default set in patch
  - Patch #315 - 2015/03/02
    * change default for --enable-narrowproto for Cygwin to "no" to
      better match contemporary configurations (report by Jens
      Schweikhardt, prompted by discussion).
    * provide OSC 106 as an alternative to OSC 6, avoiding conflict
      with one of's undocumented escape sequences
      (report by Egmont Koblinger).
    * fix an off-by-one in comparison when autowrap and left/right
      margins are combined (report by George Nachman).
    * modify DECBI and DECFI to work outside the left/right
      margins, since the vague VT520 reference manual could support
      that interpretation (suggested by George Nachman).
    * correct response for DECSCUSR in DECRQSS (report/analysis by
      George Nachman).
    * add DECSLRM to list for DECRQSS in (report by
      George Nachman).
    * improve limit-checks versus assert's in the debugging version
      (reports by George Nachman).
    * correct a problem with multiple writes to the right-margin
      when autowrap is turned off (report by George Nachman, also
      reported in Gnome #744819 by Ulf Magnusson).
    * modify DCH to honor top/bottom and left/right margins (report
      by George Nachman).
    * correct off-by-one in comparison so that DL honors left/right
      margins (report by George Nachman).
    * correct logic of DECSCL, which always set 8-bit controls as a
      side-effect (report by George Nachman).
    * correct loop limit for DECSED 1, when DECSCA is enabled
      (report by George Nachman).
    * fix a entry in csi_table for “$”, needed for CSI [ $ z
      (report by George Nachman).
    * remove restriction from patch #279 changes on DECIC and DECDC
      to left-right mode (report by George Nachman).
    * correct PID value returned in response to DECRQCRA
      (report/analysis by George Nachman).
    * fix an ifdef'ing problem, where --disable-dec-locator would
      turn off logic needed for DECIC and DECDC (report by George
    * correct order of parameters in report for CSI 1 9 t, which
      gives the screensize in characters (report by George
    * add null pointer checks for a case in DECCRA where part of
      the target rectangle lies outside the screen limits (report
      by George Nachman).
    * remove extra "6" for selective erase from DA1 response
      (report by George Nachman).
    * support Xinerama screen specification in geometry parsing
      (patch by Nicolas George).
    * add configure option --enable-initial-erase to set
      ptyInitialErase consistently with manpage, as well as adding
      a table in manpage to clarify the relationship between the
      resources related to the backarrow key (Debian #775952).
    * add configure --enable-builtin-xpms to simplify compiling-in
      the icons introduced in patch #284 (prompted by discussion
      with William Bulley).
    * fix/improve autoconf macros:
      + CF_WITH_APP_DEFAULTS, add paths for OSX
      + CF_WITH_MAN2HTML, configure option "--with-man2html"
      provides "man2html" as alternative to groff's man/html
    * fix some minor issues in manpage (Jens Schweikhardt).
  - Patch #314 - 2014/12/28
    * fix a minor bug in the termcap-specific version of resize
      when the lines or columns values are at the very end of an
      incomplete termcap string (prompted by coverity report).
    * improve paste64 feature (report by Olaf Rogalsky)
      + fix “p;” command in example.
      + modify _OwnSelection to allow the paste64 control to cause
      primary/clipboard selections to be disowned and cleared.
      + omit an extra "=" used in padding, to make the base64
      response a multiple of four characters.
      + modify _ConvertSelectionHelper to not stop converting on
      embedded nulls in the primary or clipboard selection. That
      makes the behavior consistent with cut-buffers. Nulls are
      not passed on to the application because they are used for
      separators in the X library calls that convert
      XTextProperty values.
    * add configure option --with-man2html to allow an alternative
      to groff's man/html conversion.
    * review and modify resource-settings which can be set via
      control sequences, etc:
      + add OSC 6, to enable/disable colors set via OSC 5, without
      changing the color assignments (prompted by patch by Ingo
      + add command-line option -itc for italics.
      + add colorIT and colorITMode for italics, like colorBD,
      + guard allowPasteControls against modification by editres.
    * change passedPty from fixed-length to allocated to ensure
      that it is long enough to hold the -S option value (report by
      Ben Longbons).
    * improve ReGIS graphics initialization (Ross Combs):
      + add a new string resource to set the default ReGIS font.
      + fix a caching problem where the font name wasn't taken into
      consideration when looking up cached metrics.
      + enables use of fractional values in coordinates (which in
      turn allows setting the coordinates to something like
      + doubles the minimum ReGIS graphic to 200x200
      + set the default ReGIS image size to "auto"
      + fix some swapped width/height parameters in TRACE messages
      + add support for scaling and mirrored coordinate systems to
      the screen address command
      + sets a minimum ReGIS graphics size of 100x100 -- smaller
      address ranges will be scaled up
      + reset the image if either the width or height is zero
      (which should happen together or not at all, but switching
      the logic gets rid of some parentheses)
      + adds support for alternate screen coordinates (just
      offsets, not inverted coordinates or scaling)
      + keeps the graphics state across ReGIS calls unless P1 or P3
      entry codes are used
      + changes loops to continue after parsing whitespace to allow
      trailing whitespace
      + fixes some incorrect character casts
* Mon Jan 05 2015
  - Patch #313 - 2014/11/28
    * add regisScreenSize resource setting to allow custom
      screensizes for ReGIS graphics (prompted by discussion with
      Scott Froebe).
    * fix some minor issues in manpage (Jens Schweikhardt).
    * improve ReGIS font-handling (Ross Combs):
      + remove "random junk" generation for unknown characters
      + add xterm extension to load user glyphs for alphabet 0
      + add xterm extension to specify loading an alphabet from a
      font by name
      + fix bug with use of empty alphabet slots which caused slot
      0 to be clobbered
      + update/clarify ReGIS-related comments
      + add DECprint extension for printing/clearing the screen
      (only clearing is performed)
    * improve ReGIS colorspec conversion (Ross Combs):
      + avoid some floating point math for colorspace conversion
      + move two copies of colorspec parsing to a single function
      + change colorspec parsing to handle components being out of
      order or with spaces and commas between them
      + add support for an extension where RGB components can be
      given instead of HLS
    * improve use of const, e.g., for the LineData pointers (patch
      by Ross Combs).
    * clip of graphics that overlap the scrollback buffer and alt
      screen (patch by Ross Combs).
    * amend change to focus-change events in patch #287 to limit it
      to suppressing the reset of the urgency-hint, because some
      useful FocusOut events were lost (report by Joe Peterson).
    * modify dpkg build-script to configure xterm-dev as an
      x-terminal-emulator alternative.
    * extend the --with-xterm-symlink feature to make symbolic
      links for the other programs and scripts.
    * minor fix to vttests/ to avoid undefined variable
      when receiving broken/missing response, e.g., from mrxvt.
    * change the way that ReGIS graphics are refreshed (patch by
      Ross Combs):
      + it pre-composes any overlapping graphics to avoid
      unnecessary and flickering draws
      + it adds a three-dimensional lookup table for RGB -> pixel
      values and uses this across all graphics
      + it draws in line segments when there is a run of the same
      + in cases where there are no transparent parts, it uses an
      XImage to draw
      + it hooks into the double-buffering support if it is
      enabled (though this doesn't seem to get rid of all
    * This has the effect of reducing flicker and speeding up
* Mon Jan 05 2015
  - Add libX11-devel, libXft-devel and libXrender-devel
    BuildRequires: the configure script silently disables XRENDERFONT
    support if the dependencies are missing (boo#911683).
  - Add an extra check after configure to ensure we do not lose this
    support accidentally ever again.
* Fri Dec 19 2014
  - Remove xorg-x11 and xorg-x11-devel BuildRequires: there is no
    need, and it causes that xterm requires itself to build through
    indirect requires (xdm, xinit).
  - Own the directory %{xappdefs}.
* Tue Dec 16 2014
  - Split the desktop launcher from the binaries: there are users
    that want to clean up their desktop launchers and also remove
    xterm launchers (but xterm is a deep dependency of xinit, used
    for fallback situations). The package 'xterm' is the 'app
    launcher', which depends on xterm-bin. Installing xterm does, as
    it did in the past, pull a FULL package installation. But the
    user will be free to remove xterm and only keep xterm-bin (once
    the dependencies in xinit are corrected as well) (boo#906598).
* Fri Nov 14 2014
  - No longer perform gpg validation; osc source_validator does it
    + Drop gpg-offline BuildRequires.
    + No longer execute gpg_verify.
* Sun Oct 12 2014
  - Add xterm-desktop-item-in-gnome-utilities-appfolder.patch to
    group xterm desktop item in the Utilities app-folder in the
    GNOME shell.
* Mon Sep 29 2014
  - Patch #312 - 2014/09/28
    * undo change to do_select_regex() in patch #311
      (reports by H Merijn Brand, Sven-Haegar Koch, Debian #762978).
* Thu Sep 25 2014
  - Patch #311 - 2014/09/18
    * mention xclip in manpage as an alternative workaround for
      copying clipboard data, noting that selectToClipboard (from
      patch #209) is the recommended approach (Debian #639094).
    * correct comparison in do_select_regex() of working position
      against starting column.
    * correct initialization for regular-expression feature of
      exec-selectable and insert-selectable actions (Debian
    * modify logic for exec-formatted and insert-formatted actions
      to ensure that the formatting occurs just after the selection
      is received (Debian #758633).
    * account for state of reverse-video in special case of cursor
      coloring (Debian #759734).
    * fix a sign-extension problem in ReGIS support, as well as
      correcting a case where ignored-characters were not really
      ignored (patch by Ross Combs).
    * Enable the "Escape Sequence" menu entry when an OSC 50 is
      received. Also disable it if the escape sequence specifies no
      font (Debian #760208).
    * improve fix for the fontsel menu entry from patch #304:
      because the recovery used the "current font", it would fail
      if one first selected a valid font, then an invalid font
      (Debian #760207).
    * correct an off-by-one in limit-check for ScrnLimitChar
      function (report by Egmont Koblinger).
* Wed Sep 17 2014
  - remove unnecessary colour tweaks which cause strange artifacts
    in the ReverseVideo mode (bnc#395154, bnc#865340)
* Tue Aug 12 2014
  - fix SUSE naming in the package files (bnc#888995)
* Thu Jul 31 2014
  - Patch #310 - 2014/07/25
    * update package/freebsd files based on xterm #309 port
    * adapt changes from Minux3.2 which ported xterm #197, to allow
      building on that platform both using imake as well as using
      the configure script
    * update precompose.c based on Unicode 7.0
    * build-fix for --with-Xaw3dxft option (report by Emanuel Haupt)
* Tue Jul 15 2014
  - Patch #309 - 2014/07/13
    * modify configure script to work around debris left by XQuartz
    * modify test-package scripts to enable ReGIS graphics.
    * improvements/additions to ReGIS graphics, e.g., drawing text
      (Ross Comb).
    * add --with-Xaw3dxft, to link with Xaw 3d xft library
      (Stephen P Wall).
    * amend reset for cursor-shape to take into account
      cursorUnderline resource (report by Christian Weisgerber).
    * update config.guess, config.sub
* Mon Jun 23 2014
  - Patch #308 - 2014/06/19
    * corrected font used for clipping double-width bitmap fonts
      from patch #307 changes to work around mis-scaled fonts
      (Debian #752947).
    * improve wording of a warning message.
* Wed Jun 18 2014
  - Patch #307 - 2014/06/17
    * fill background for top/bottom parts of
      double-width/double-height characters, to cover occasional
      gaps due to bitmap font-scaling (report by Egmont Koblinger).
    * amend resets for keyboard-type, pointer-mode and title-modes
      from xterm #305 changes to account for resource settings
      (Debian #751351).
    * modify printAttributes feature to include new SGR codes.
    * modify cursor show/hide logic to work with italic fonts.
    * do clipping and filling for a case with bitmap-fonts and
      italics when the font server returns only a "close" match
      (report/testcase by Egmont Koblinger).
    * adjust loop comparison for underlining to display underlines
      on 5x8 font as in patch #304 (Debian #750733).
    * amend fix for Freedesktop #15979 (Debian #750733).
    * amend xterm.appdata.xml, making it validate with current
* Thu Jun 12 2014
  - a special changelog entry containing the full patch file name
    instead of the short one that appears in the real update commit
    (previous changelog entry): xterm-decomposed_bitmaps.patch,
    that appeases the checks in the openSUSE:Factory project in
    OBS. These checks (and thus also this entry) are of the utmost
    importance since they ensure that a package changelog can be
    used instead of a proper source version control system and sane
    patch header comments. It also adds lots of important
    information on top of the usual boring features & fixes
    descriptions nobody is really interested in.
* Tue Jun 10 2014
  - Fix Xerror failures on ppc64le (bnc#881131)
* Wed Jun 04 2014
  - Patch #306 - 2014/06/03
    * fixes for display-errors in new SGR codes (report by Egmont
* Tue Jun 03 2014
  - Patch #305 - 2014/06/02
    * add xterm.appdata.xml (request by Richard Hughes). By the way,
      none of the released validators yet handle <licence> tags (or
      <metadata_license>, etc).
    * fix memory leaks in bitmap font-name caching.
    * other changes to hard-reset behavior:
      + reset keyboard-type on hard-reset.
      + reset pointer-mode (pointerMode) on hard-reset
      + reset title-modes (titleModes) on hard-reset
      + reset cursor-shape on hard or soft-reset
      + reset LEDs on hard-reset.
      + reset DECSACE on hard-reset.
    * reset bracketed-paste mode on hard-reset (suggested by Egmont
    * modify UTF-8 decoder to account for allowC1Printable resource.
    * revise getXftColor to ensure that its sequence number will not
      overflow in long-running sessions.
    * minor fix to selection to prevent hidden character from being
      returned in selection data (report by Egmont Koblinger).
    * add -sh to help-message.
    * amend check for incomplete fonts to always decide that a
      character is missing if the font lacks per-character metrics
      (prompted by Freedesktop #15979).
    * minor reorganization to implement “filler” SGR features. There
      are no established applications which rely upon these; some
      people find them amusing.
      + separate bits used to manage drawing state from
      + implement SGR codes 2, 3, 9, 21 and their corresponding
      + add configure option --disable-wide-attrs to disable the
    * additional changes for ReGIS support (patch by Ross Combs):
      + fix some arc drawing bugs and add support for pattern
* Thu May 22 2014
  - enable support for sixel graphics originally introduced with
    patch #294
* Mon May 05 2014
  - Patch #304 - 2014/05/03
    * add debugging check for parsing table entries, fixed a few
    * handle utmp/utmpx strings consistently with new function that
      null-pads unused locations.
    * build-fix for imake configuration with FreeBSD 9 and later,
      to account for replacing utmp with utmpx.
    * improve handling of the fontsel (font-selection) menu item:
      + initialize the menu entry differently if the toolbar
      configuration is used, i.e., enabling it without attempting
      to use the current selection as a font name. Because of the
      way in which the toolbar is setup, this attempt usually
      failed, and would result in a warning.
      + if the menu action fails, e.g., no font can be loaded for
      the given selected name, then recover by resuming with the
      current font. Before, the recovery went to the default
      font. That was done to work around missing bitmap font in
      patch #276.
    * document OSC 119 in the control sequences listing (report by
      Egmont Koblinger).
    * modify special handling of XF86Paste or SunPaste keysyms (see
      patch #227) to use the standard shift/lock modifiers in case
      those are, for example, used in level 3 in an XKB file (patch
      by Matthieu Herrb).
    * configure macro updates:
      + drop the -no-gcc option from CF_INTEL_COMPILER
      + modify CF_XOPEN_SOURCE to suppress the check for defining
      _XOPEN_SOURCE on Solaris
    * reduce bss storage used for ReGIS/Sixel modules, as well as
      cleanup storage usage in other modules.
    * initial changes for ReGIS support (patch by Ross Combs):
      + document control-sequences
      + separate ifdef's for sixel and color-register features
      + add configuration for VT382
* Fri Mar 07 2014
  - Patch #303 - 2014/03/06
    * improve check for /etc/shells to allow its entries to be symbolic
    * fix a regression in patch #302 fixes relating to interaction of
      SHELL and XTERM_SHELL variables (Debian #740919).
    * improve manpage discussion of use of /etc/shells for validating the
      SHELL environment variable.
    * further improve the approximation for color map by ignoring bits
      which would not be applied by the rgb masks for the current visual
      (report by Joe Peterson).
    * add -report-colors to usage-message (report by Joe Peterson).
  - Patch #302 - 2014/03/02
    * amend  approximation for color map introduced in patch #277 to make
      that apply only to TrueColor (adapted from patch by Joe Peterson).
    * add -report-colors option, to show colors as they are allocated.
    * fix some gcc -Wcast-qual warnings.
    * correct app-defaults location for CentOS-4 in xterm.spec
    * improve  check  in for X manpage's section number; add
      sample  dependencies  for  the  relevant  documentation  package to
      packaging test-scripts (prompted by Novell #779474).
    * modify sample build-scripts for dpkg and rpm to ensure that vttests
      scripts are uncompressed and executable.
    * modify  Perl scripts in vttests to use env to find Perl rather than
      relying  on /usr/bin/perl This makes the sample scripts usable with
      NetBSD and other systems using pkgsrc.
    * amend  check  from  patch  #301  for valid shell to permit existing
      SHELL  value  to  specify  the  shell;  clarify the behavior in the
      manpage (report by Emmanuel Thome).
    * amend  change to wide-character processing from patch #257 to allow
      switching  to/from  UTF-8 encoding if the utf8 resource was not set
      to "always" (report by Honza Maly).
    * fix  incorrect  free  from  patch #301 changes, if explicit program
      without -e option is a valid shell (patch by Romain Francois).
* Mon Jan 20 2014
  - Patch #301 - 2014/01/19
    * OSC 104 and 105 did not accept parameter to reset a specific
      color (patch by Egmont Koblinger).
    * add configure check for initgroups, and use that function to
      complement its use of setgid (prompted by patch by Miroslav
    * improve manpage description of scrollbar translations versus
      the vt100 translations (Debian #723573).
    * add a few paragraphs to manpage explaining the implications
      of xterm's reliance on X Toolkit for command-line parsing.
    * modify cursor-theme logic to check if the environment
      variable XCURSOR_THEME is set to a nonempty value before
      constructing a dummy them (prompted by similar check added in
      OpenBSD CVS).
    * add check for a case where TrueType bold font is missing a
      glyph where the non-bold font has it. Temporarily switch to
      the non-bold font to draw the glyph (report by David
    * minor documentation fixes for
    * only set SHELL environment variable to programs found in
      /etc/shells (prompted by patch/report by Al Poole).
    * build-fix, when --disable-wide-chars --disable-boxchar is
      used (prompted by patch by Andrey Panov).
* Thu Dec 05 2013
  - Patch #300 - 2013/12/03
    * amend workaround for Xcursor library from patch #298; the
      suggested solution for Debian #466704 fell afoul of a bug in
      Xcursor which treated an empty value for Inherits= as a valid
      theme—and resulted in a stack overflow due to unbounded
      recursion. Certain environments such as XFCE4 exposed the
      bug. A related report in Debian #531679 was closed without
      following the recommendation to limit stack recursion in this
      library (reported by Sergey V Dyatko, Debian #731269).
* Mon Dec 02 2013
  - Patch #299 - 2013/12/01
    * fix regression in line-drawing from patch #297 changes for
      NRCS exposed by change to assumeAllChars resource in patch
      [#298] (report by Markus Waldeck).
* Fri Nov 29 2013
  - Patch #298 - 2013/11/27
    * quiet a warning about ambiguity when -h command-line option
      is parsed, since -help is used rather than the options
      mentioned in the message. This warning was caused by fixes in
      patch #272.
    * remove an extra check for keypad-mode which interfered with
      the patch #280 modifyKeyboard feature for the numeric keypad
      (report by David Conners).
    * change default for assumeAllChars resource (Debian #725682).
      There are unresolved issues with Terminus fonts, e.g., Debian
    * add -report-fonts command-line option and reportFonts
      resource to optionally report the fonts which are loaded, and
      their metrics such as the number of missing glyphs.
    * work around Xcursor library to make pointerColor resource
      work as documented (Debian #466704, analysis by Vincent
    * amend change from patch #297 for ASCII-equivalents to ensure
      that missing characters which happen to be double-width are
      padded to the expected number of columns. Also, correct the
      choice between normal/wide Xft fonts used when checking for
      missing characters (reported by WU Yue, Debian #728949,
      Gentoo #491334).
    * modify sixel-graphics drawing to account for scrollbar width
      (report by Mario Edelmann).
    * fix remaining issue with DECNRCM; the British character set
      was confused with ISO Latin-1 (report by Hayaki Saito).
    * build-fix for --disable-boxchars configure option.
    * updated configure macros, from ongoing work on lynx and
    * update config.guess, config.sub

  - Fix invalid terminal.png (IDAT TFB error).
* Fri Sep 20 2013
  - Patch #297 - 2013/09/10
    * modify check for missing cells in bitmap font to work around
      terminus 10646 encoding, which is mostly missing, add
      assumeAllChars resource to provide the older behavior.
    * modify macros used to check for missing cells in bitmap fonts
      to pick up a long-overlooked improvement made to xfd in
    * improve workaround for groff versus ASCII-equivalents; patch
      [#185] had overlooked Xft configuration (reported by anonymous
      user on Arch Linux forum).
    * review/extend DECNRCM support (prompted by report by Hayaki
      Saito asking about the two "A" codes).
      + make pasting of DECNRCM data work by translating the pasted
      data into the selected encoding.
      + limit mode changes to VT220 and up.
      + ignore SCS for National Replacement Characters if DECNRCM
      is not set.
      + add tables and logic to decode SCS controls ending with "%"
      and one additional character. This expects the parsing of
      SCS to VT320.
      + also added parsing for SCS of DEC Supplemental and DEC
      Technical, which are for VT2xx and VT3xx respectively.
      + implement VT220 Multinational character set "GR" aka "DEC
      Supplemental Graphic".
      + DEC Technical character set based on description.
      + implement Portuguese NRC.
      + provide for temporarily switching to/from NRC mode from
      UTF-8 mode when DECNRCM is set or reset.
    * minor fix to assert's found while testing examples from
      ttdoda's slrm-test1.txt.
    * modify DECLRMM to not update the cursor position (report by
      Iwamoto Kouichi forwarded by Hayaki Saito).
    * modify cursor-position report to take origin-mode into account
      (report by Hayaki Saito, see also iTerm2 pull request 129).
    * correct off-by-one comparison in when handling carriage-return
      at left margin (patch by Iwamoto Kouichi, forwarded by Hayaki
    * improve handling of faceName resource when a "size=" property
      is embedded in it, by using that size to replace the default
      faceSize resource. This lets xterm honor the other faceSize
      resources (report by Jens Schweikhardt).
    * improve OSC 52 selection-data by setting its timestamp to
      correspond to the most-recent event received by xterm, to
      ensure that calls to XtOwnSelect succeed even if the selection
      is manipulated solely through the keyboard (prompted by patch
      by Richard Tollerton).
    * change configure-script defaults for "luit" and "wide-chars"
      options to match the values used in the imake configuration,
      to lessen user surprise if they are accustomed to building
      xterm using imake(report by Andries E Brouwer).
    * improve the imake-related configuration's check if xterm is
      started in a locale that uses UTF-8 encoding. Before, this
      checked the locale settings only for "UTF-8", now it checks
      ignoring case for "UTF-8" and "UTF-8" (report by Andries E
* Fri Jul 12 2013
  - Patch #296 - 2013/07/10
    * improve experimental sixel feature (patch by Ross Combs).
    * modify delimiter in configure macro used to add a library
      after a given library to avoid confusion with -Wl
      pass-through options to linker (NetBSD #48031).
    * fix quoting in expression used to trim extra libraries from
      patch #295 changes (report by Thomas Klausner).
  - Patch #295 - 2013/07/06
    * adjust order of libraries to work around incomplete symbol
      resolution when using --as-needed option (ArchLinux #36047).
    * minor fix for, for IRIX64.
  - Patch #294 - 2013/07/05
    * add note in for CPR response pointing out a
      potential point of confusion with the string sent by a
      modified F1 key (suggested by Bram Moolenaar).
    * improve by checking if the linker supports the
    - -as-needed option (suggested by David Philippi).
    * improve clearing for private mode 1049 when switching to the
      alternate screen (Debian #711758).
    * amend fix from patch #292 by removing now-unneeded chunk
      which introduced problem in selection (Debian #714527).
    * add definition to optionally override compiled-in class for
      xterm from makefile, needed for test-packages.
    * add configure option --enable-sixel-graphics
    * add experimental support for sixel graphics (patch by Ross
* Tue May 28 2013
  - Patch #293 - 2013/05/27
    * modify sample xterm.spec to use newer icon
    * add configure option --with-icon-symlink to work around
      systems which map icon requests for to a single "xterm" icon,
      but neglect to install the icon needed for window decorations
      (report by H Merijn Brand).
    * improve parameterizing of sample xterm.spec
    * amend fix for printer from patch #280, removing a reset of the
      signal handler for SIGCHLD (report by Joe Julian).
    * set environment variable XTERM_FILTER if a locale-filter is
    * enable DEBUG logic when --enable-trace configure option is
    * improve description of initialFont, set-vt-font and
      set-tex-text in manpage (Debian #707899).
    * fix regression from patch #292; selecting a word that ended at
      the right margin without wrapping would not select the last
      cell (report by Christian Weisgerber).
* Thu May 02 2013
  - cleanup of spec file and patches
* Fri Apr 26 2013
  - Patch #292 - 2013/04/25
    * add limit-check when double-click selects a word; if the saved-lines
    were scrolled back and the word selected wrapped at the screen's lower
    right corner, an assertion was triggered (patch by Taketo Kabe).
    * correct limit-check in unsaveEditBufLines, fixing a case where
    enlarging the terminal size could show a blank line where there
    actually is available text (patch by Bertram Felgenhauer).
    * add PasteControls feature to allowWindowOps which by default
    disallows pasting control characters other than formatting such as
    carriage return (discussion with Hayaki Saito).
    * fix typo in for DECRQM response (patch by Emanuele
    * update  default  shown  in  configure  --help  message  for
    - -with-terminal-id option (patch by Andres Perera).
    * rename script/preprocessor variables used for substituting the
    backarrowKey  default value for consistency (patch by Andres
    * set umask to 077 before creating debugging-trace files.
    * add configure option --disable-openpty to control whether openpty()
    may be used in preference to posix_openpt().
    * improve workaround from patch #279 for BSD systems which do not
    complete initialization until both sides of the pseudoterminal are
    opened, by preferring openpty() function over posix_openpt() when
    available (report by Christian Weisgerber).
  - refreshed xterm-disallow-window-and-fonts-ops.patch
* Thu Mar 14 2013
  - Patch #291 - 2013/02/26
    * add  validity  check  for xterm widget parameter to AlternateScroll
      function, needed to handle wheel mouse events in the scrollbar area
      since  patch  #282 changes which introduced alternateScroll feature
      (Redhat #874327).
* Sat Mar 02 2013
  - config-guess-sub-update.patch:
    Update config.guess/sub for aarch64
* Tue Feb 19 2013
  - fixed check for existance of bdftopcf; added bdftopcf
    Buildrequires for openSUSE > 12.1 (bnc#804329)
* Mon Feb 18 2013
  - Patch #290 - 2013/02/12
    * revert of patch #282 change was incomplete (report by Jim Reisert).
    * fix typo in manpage (report by Vincent Lefevre).
  - Patch #289 - 2013/02/08
    * revert the patch #282 change which restored "lost" text after
      shrinking/growing the screen size. If the screen was updated between
      the two resizing operations, unexpected text might be shown at the
      end (report/testcase by Joe Peterson).
    * reverse the arrow-keys sent for alternateScroll to match the usage
      in browsers (suggested by Dieter Roelants).
    * modify mouse reports to consistently indicate motion events whether
      or not a button is pressed. Old behavior (since patch #127 modified
      encoding for wheel mouse) showed only that the button was released
      if no button had been pressed (report by Andy Koppe).
    * correct and improve behavior for SGR 1006 mouse protocol on button
      release in any-event mode. Initial implementation in patch #277 left
      internal state showing the last button pressed when reporting motion
      events. It now keeps track of all buttons which have been pressed
      and released, showing the lowest remaining button by number in the
      response (reports by Hayaki Saito, Andy Koppe).
    * fix inconsistency between TermColors and OscTextColors enums which
      interchanged values for tektronix cursor color and highlight
      foreground in control sequences in patch #225 (report/patch by
      Peder Stray).
    * fix inconsistent use of noreturn-attribute in Exit function which
      interfered with analysis by clang.
    * remove incorrect free used in computation of XTERM_SHELL variable,
      from Coverity fixes in patch #288 (FreeBSD #175782).
    * add --with-valgrind option to configure script for consistency with
      my other programs.
    * update table of ambiguous width characters in wcwidth.c based on
      Unicode 6.2.0
    * update table of combining characters in wcwidth.c based on Unicode
    * update precompose.c based on Unicode 6.2.0
* Fri Jan 25 2013
  - Patch #288 - 2013/01/09
    * fix a special case in ShowCursor where the foreground and
      background colors of the current position are the same. In
      that case, choose the further of the window's foreground and
      background colors for the cursor color.
    * modify alternateScroll feature added in patch #282 to use
      either CSI or SS3 according to the cursor keys application
      mode setting, to simplify using it in vi, etc. (suggested by
      Dietar Roelants).
    * revise manpage for resize to clarify the changes which resize
      may make to the terminal settings as well as to the terminal
    * remove code such as struct ttysize, used for SunOS 3 and 4.
    * modify configure script and makefile to check for groff and
      suppress groff-specific rules if groff is not found.
    * modify and makefile to work around bugs in grohtml
      which cause ".png" files to be truncated when producing html
    * modify suffix rules for "make docs" to make the names of the
      generated ".png" files predictable, helping to work around
      longstanding problems with this feature of groff-none of its
      releases work for all of xterm's tables..
    * correct typo in for DECIC and DECDC; the character
      preceding the final "~" is an ASCII single-quote "'" rather
      than a space (report by Paul LeoNerd Evans).
    * update CF_GCC_VERSION macro, handling both Debian and Darwin.
    * improve configure script checks for the
    - -with-desktop-category option. After patch #280 changes, if
      no value was given for this option, and no existing desktop
      files found for comparison, the incorrect "auto" value was
      passed into the generated desktop file (report by Julien
    * modify sample build-scripts to disable check for imake due to
      code-rot in Xorg.
    * add -v command-line option to resize, reporting the same
      version string as xterm and the two shell-wrappers.
    * make name-transformation apply to other occurrences of resize,
      other manpages.
    * special-case the name-transformation in xterm's manpage in the
      NAME section so that the result works with makewhatis (report
      by Julien Cristau).
    * modify install-rules for manpages to put each program's
      respective transformed name into the header rather than
    * remove deprecated files: proto.h, os2main.c
    * minor fixes based on Coverity scan, including:
      + correct caching of Atom value for the font menu's
      "Selection" entry.
      + ensure that utmp/utmpx calls do not depend upon trailing
      nulls in the ut_id and ut_line values.
* Tue Nov 27 2012
  - Verify GPG signatures.
* Mon Nov 26 2012
  - Patch #287 - 2012/11/25
    * fix  a case where in_put() loop could continue when it has found an
      X  event  rather  than  the pty, causing the pty-read to be delayed
      (patch by Balazs Kezes).
    * add  option  to  pointerMode  resource  and  corresponding  control
      sequences  to  allow  text-cursor  to  remain hidden if the pointer
      leaves/enters  the  window  via  accelerator  keys. Ordinary motion
      within the window restores the pointer (prompted by patch by Balazs
    * remove   special   case   of  modifiers  for  the  Mode_switch  and
      XK_ISO_Level3_Shift  from  patch  #223.  Verified that the conflict
      which  this  was  intended  to  resolve  does not happen for normal
      compose- or modeswitch-handling (prompted by patch by Balazs Kezes,
      Debian #638694).
    * modify  the  handling  of focus-change events to ignore those whose
      detail  is  NotifyPointer,  since  those  are  sent  in addition to
      focus-change  events  directed  to the old/new windows having focus
      (prompted by patch by Balazs Kezes to prevent the urgency-hint from
      being reset in this scenario).
    * modify  description  of iconName in manpage to make it clearer that
      this  resource does not specify the filename of an icon (discussion
      with Ian Collier).  * modify  iconHint resource to allow suppressing
      the built-in icon by setting this to "none" (discussion with Ian
    * make -iconic option work with the toolbar configuration.
    * correct  initialization  of  window  manager  hints used to set the
      icon-pixmap.  That  detail  from patch #282 overwrote state used to
      control the -iconic command-line option (report by Ian Collier).
    * fix paste64 feature for the case where the selection comes from the
      current terminal. The selection callback can happen after the reply
      is  partly  built, making it necessary to flush the reply-buffer to
      keep things in the proper order (report by Ailin Nemui).
    * reject  command-line  options  which are longer than the options in
      xterm's table, to avoid mismatches (Redhat #875305).
    * correct attribution for patch #282 changes.
* Tue Oct 30 2012
  - Patch #286 - 2012/10/29
    * fix to work with "make docs" rule, so that patch
    number appears in the corresponding generated documentation.
    * modify to keep the name shown in the heading
    consistent with any renaming, e.g., for test-builds.
    * check for misconfigured printerCommand resource on the first
    use, warn and disable it if it does not specify an executable
    command (Debian #691642).
    * improve check for window-manager name needed to establish
    usable default for activeIcon resource. This works around a
    scenario where gdm does incomplete cleanup, leaving window
    properties that refer to windows which no longer exist
    (Redhat #869959).
* Thu Oct 25 2012
  - Patch #285 - 2012/10/23
    * add/adapt FreeBSD ports files for test-building.
    * modify to use the patch-number and date in the manpage
    * add  check  for  failure  to  allocate the fg/bg colors at startup,
    e.g.,  misconfiguration. Work around by setting both to the default
    colors (suggested by Scott Bertilson).
    * amend  change  for  patch  #280 which added modifyKeyboard, to make
    modifyOtherKeys work (report by Ailin Nemui).
    * add example for OSC 4.
    * correct   mis-applied  fix  for  (report  by  Miroslav
* Tue Oct 16 2012
  -Patch #284 - 2012/10/14
    * amend configurability changes for icons from patch #283, moving the
    new  functionality  to the iconHint resource to avoid conflict with
    existing  uses of the iconName resource in the Shell widget (report
    by Emanuel Haupt).
    * fix documentation errata (reports by Miroslav Lichvar):
    + correct manpage default for allowTcapOps (see patch #243
    + modify  documentation  for configure --enable-backarrow-key to
      match the script (see patch #280).
    + fix  typo  in  in  patch  #283,  which  made  the
      leading-cap "Xterm" become "xterm" (patch by Miroslav).
    * fix  two  typos  in from patch #283 changes; one broke
    the --regex configure option (report by H Merijn Brand).
* Thu Oct 11 2012
  - Patch #283 - 2012/10/09
    * modify makefile and script to generate appropriate renaming
      s/xterm/xterm-dev/ for test-package's manpage.
    * improve makefile rules for installing/uninstalling pixmap
      files, to include the newer mini- and filled- variants.
    * clarify change in manpage regarding patch #282 change to
      always set a window-decoration icon, even if iconName is not
    * add a fourth flavor of window-decoration icons,
      "filled-xterm" for a monochrome xterm with filled interior.
    * use shape-mask to improve contrast of the window-decoration
    * minor changes to icon colors to improve contrast on
      bright-mud backgrounds.
    * drop configure checks for memmove versus bcopy, and strerror
      function; all currently tested platforms support these.
    * cleanup configure macros, as done in byacc 20121003.
    * improve configurability of the built-in icon selectable via
      the iconName resource.
    * update config.guess, config.sub
  - fix build on older SUSE distros (post-12.2)
* Fri Oct 05 2012
  - new fontpackages-devel only valid post-12.2
* Mon Oct 01 2012
  - Patch #282 - 2012/09/28
    * improve configure check for XkbKeycodeToKeysym, fixing a regression
      on some older systems in the patch #280 changes.
    * add  clarification in manpage for alwaysBoldMode and veryBoldColors
      resources (prompted by Derek Martin question about using the former
      with TrueType fonts).
    * add  alternateScroll  resource  and corresponding control sequences
      which  modify  the  scroll-forw  and  scroll-back actions: when the
      alternate screen is displayed, wheel mouse up/down will send cursor
      keys (Debian #683942).
    * improve  rendering  for the case when a Unicode character is absent
      in  the  bold  font  but  present in the normal font by temporarily
      falling back to the normal font (Debian #359006, Debian #408666).
    * provide  configure  option  --enable-double-buffer  and  ifdef's to
      allow  comparisons  with/without double-buffering. The default uses
      normal buffering.
    * add  feature  to  optionally  scroll  current page before clearing,
      ontrolled  by  resource setting cdXtraScroll (prompted by patch by
      Richard Wagenblast):
    * integrated  patches  from  Arch  Linux  forum  posting  (patches by
      Richard Wagenblast):
      + modify reallocation limit of line-data when resizing screen so
      that  "lost"  text  will  be  restored  if the screen is first
      shrunk and then grown.
      + modify output to use double-buffering to reduce flicker.
    * modify  scroll-lock  action  to  handle on/off/toggle keywords like
      other actions. Previously the optional parameter was interpreted as
      an integer.
    * extend  DECSCUSR  to  provide a way to set the cursor to a vertical
      bar (patch by Paul Bolle).
    * add  -8,  -c,  -d  and -u options to and
      scripts.  No current terminal emulator recognizes C1 controls while
      handling  UTF-8  encodingâ\200\224see  notes in patch #119 and patch #109
      regarding  utf8controlsâ\200\224but  the -u and -8 options are useful for
      demonstrating this point.
    * improve  speed  when  changing color palettes using OSC controls by
      deferring repaint while followup controls might be additional color
      palette changes.
    * modify  SGR 38 and SGR 48 to accept RGB index, matching the closest
      entry in xterm's palette.
    * extend  SGR 38  and  SGR 48  to accept colon as parameter separator
      (request by Paul LeoNerd Evans).
    * modify fullscreen action to allow it to toggle the full-screen mode
      rather  than  only  set  or  unset  it  (prompted  by  Eeri  Kask's
      suggestion to support _NET_WM_TOGGLE). This implementation does not
      yet use _NET_WM_TOGGLE.
    * add      support      for      _NET_WM_STATE_MAXIMIZED_VERT     and
      _NET_WM_STATE_MAXIMIZED_HORZ  EWMH  properties  (suggested  by Eeri
    * make  fullscreen  mode  work  with  the tek4014 window. This change
      makes  only the currently active window to be changed to fullscreen
      rather than changing both windows.
    * modify  TekClear function to discard pending output before clearing
      the tek4014 display (patch by Kevin Ryde).
    * fix  deleteIsDEL  feature,  broken in patch #280 changes (report by
      Mike Thornburg, forwarded by Jeremy Huddleston).
    * fix   a   special   case   of   wrapping   double-width  characters
      (report/test-case by Ken Winstein).
    * add E3 extended capability to xterm-basic to match ncurses 20120728
    * fix     incorrect     transformation     of    row-parameter    for
      ClearCurBackground in patch #279 which caused incorrect painting in
      some scrolling scenarios (report by Chuck Silvers).
    * fix typo in manpage description of +maximized option (Paul Maier).
    * change  default  for  configure  option  --with-xpm,  turning it on
      unless requested otherwise.
    * add configure option --with-icon-name which can be used to override
      the default icon used in icon-themes.
    * extend  activeIcon  resource  to  provide default value which tells
      xterm  to  determine  the  window  manager's name and automatically
      enable  the  feature  for  fvwm  and  window  maker.  The  explicit
      true/false values can be used to override this behavior.
    * add  "mini" xterm icon, which scales better than the standard xterm
      icon, e.g., for the gnome/kde "panel" feature.
    * extend  iconName  resource  to  search  for icon named according to
      resource value and use that if found. If not found, use compiled-in
      pixmap. Both set the WM_ICON_NAME property which is used by various
      window managers, usually for window decoration.
    * updated  autoconf  patch,  adding  support for --datarootdir, which
      changes the default location of manpages.
    * further  improved  autoconf macros for configuring icons, from vile
* Mon Aug 06 2012
  - prepare spec file for dropping SuSEconfig.fonts (openFATE#313536)
* Tue Jul 17 2012
  - Patch #281 - 2012/06/26
    * remove "$(srcdir)/" from install-icon rule to fix builds when
    - -srcdir configuration option is used.
    * fix for configure script's search for icon file when it is
      not found in the current directory, e.g., when building out
      of tree (patch by Thierry Reding).
    * undo the XK_Home / XK_End change from patch #280 which broke
      the non-VT220 keyboard for those keys (report by H Merijn
  - Patch #280 - 2012/06/24
    * add configure check to work around warning from
      desktop-file-install for "Encoding", noting that it emits
      deprecation warnings without providing its version
    * add configure option --with-icon-theme to tell xterm whether
      to install into an icon theme, defaulting to "hicolor"
      (Redhat #755206, #799614 and #804279).
    * change --with-icondir to look for "icons" directory rather
      than "pixmaps" by default. Add new option --with-pixmapdir to
      allow these two uses to be installed concurrently.
    * modify configure options --with-app-defaults and
    - -with-icondir to accept "auto" as value to look for existing
      directory from well-known locations.
    * add missing codes for secondary DA response which tell the
      type of terminal as in the primary DA response.
    * update primary DA response for VT420 to include user windows
      and horizontal scrolling.
    * add modifyKeyboard resource to support keypad-modifier
      changes per request by Thomas Wolff.
    * add XK_Home / XK_End to editing-keypad checks
    * add back-tab key kB to termcap entries to match the terminfo.
    * update terminfo to match corresponding entries in ncurses,
      e.g., add XT and adjust sgr string for xterm-bold entry.
    * add configure options to predefine the most commonly
      customized resources for terminal-settings, use those to
      substitute into the manpage the corresponding compiled-in
      values: altSendsEscape, backarrowKey, backarrowKeyIsErase,
      deleteIsDEL, metaSendsEscape (Redhat #819588).
    * change default emulation level to VT420 (discussion with
      Ailin Nemui).
    * improve logic for DECSCL; patch 279 partly enforced
      limitation of this to higher-level emulations. This patch
      finishes that change.
    * improve check for base of combining characters, preventing
      combination when cursor movement has intervened. Mosh's
      webpage gives two different examples of this, with other
      causes ascribed to the behavior.
    * modify IL/DL to set cursor to first column on row for better
      VT102/VT220 compatibility (prompted by code review of mosh).
    * separate state-table entries for DECSC/DECRC from the
      ANSI.SYS save/restore cursor, since the latter conflicts with
      DECSLRM when DECLRMM is enabled since patch #279
      (report/analysis by Ailin Nemui).
    * fixes to avoid using SIGCHLD handler of main program in
      printer's subprocess (report by Joe Julian).
    * correct restore-parameter for mouse-modes from patch #279
    * add null-pointer checks to input-method caching added in
      patch #277 to fix a problem in the exposure code, when
      deselecting a window (report by Kriston Rehberg).
    * unset DESKTOP_STARTUP_ID environment variable to lessen
      confusion on the part of GTK applications which use the
      variable without checking it (report by John Little).
* Tue Jun 26 2012
  - require luit package on openSUSE > 12.1 (post xorg apps split)
* Sun May 13 2012
  - Update to new upstream release 279
    * add support for VT420/VT520 left/right margins and related
* Sat Feb 18 2012
  - buildrequire libXaw-devel on newer systems
* Fri Jan 20 2012
  - fixed build on SLE9
* Thu Jan 19 2012
  - Patch #278 - 2012/01/18
    * correct initialization for eightBitMeta resource
      (FreeBSD #164101).
    * make special check for Darwin 9 (and lower) to not use
      posix_openpt (report by Christian Ebert).
    * minor fixes (adding ".ne" directives) to reduce the cases
      where groff's utility for generating images for tables dumps
      core. Most versions of groff (I've found 1.19.2 to be the
      most stable) dump core when attempting to report that there
      are too few lines on a page for a table to be shown.
  - Patch #277 - 2012/01/07
    * remove special case for ISC pseudo-terminals which attempts
      to open the pty in two different ways.
    * move call to grantpt before asking utempter to add a record,
      to work with kFreeBSD which does not update the terminal's
      ownership until this point (Debian #652907).
    * document limitation of XIM interface in manpage
      (Debian #230787).
    * cleanup error reporting with new xtermWarning function.
    * add configure option --disable-selection-ops to make the new
      actions optional.
    * add four new actions for making the selection or data
      directly copied from the screen (prompted by discussion in
      Debian #637001, as well as report by Arjen van Tol):
      o exec-formatted
      o exec-selectable
      o insert-formatted
      o insert-selectable
    * add visualBellLine resource to allow visualBell to flash only
      the current line (prompted by patch by Gertjan Halkes).
    * add eightBitMeta resource to control the features which
      modify or interpret the eighth bit of a key when the meta
      modifier key is pressed (prompted by Debian #326200).
    * improve discussion of eightBitInput in the manpage (prompted
      by Debian #326200).
    * correct logic for alt-sends-escape action, overlooked when
      implementing altSendsEscape resource, which still used
      eightBitInput resource value.
    * add a workaround for XAllocColor(), which does not actually
      allocate "a read-only colormap entry corresponding to the
      closest RGB value supported by the hardware", but rather
      a rough approximation (Debian #650291).
    * undo parameter checks for RequestResize() added in patch #251
      and amended in patch #270, because zeros also are special
      cases (report by John S Urban).
    * modify some test-scripts to use /bin/echo rather than the
      shell's possibly-builtin echo, to work around broken
      configuration on Mac OS X, i.e., neither honoring the option
      nor flagging an error.
    * add SGR 1006, as a better technical solution than SGR 1015:
      o the responses will not be confused with line-deletion and
      scrolling controls.
      o the button encoding is a little simpler, since it does not
      add an unnecessary 32 because the integer parameter does
      not have to be represented as a printable character.
      o the control responses for pressing and releasing a mouse
      button differ, allowing an application to tell which button
      was released.
    * Besides these improvements, in discussion, it was noted that
      urxvt's implementation of 1005 is incorrect, relying upon
      a locale that provides UTF-8 encoding. In contrast, vttest
      demonstrates a correct decoding, independent of locale.
    * add support for urxvt SGR 1015 to address shortcoming of
      SGR 1005 with luit (patch by Egmont Koblinger).
    * add ISO and DEC controls useful for left/right scrolling.
    * add some changes for OpenBSD and MirBSD (adapted from patch
      by Thorsten Glaser):
      o disable search for non-Unix96 ptys.
      o fix a gcc warning in timestamp_filename
      o modify Imakefile to install xterm setgid to utmp.
    * add/use/prefer posix_openpt() for opening pseudo-terminal.
    * modify special errno handling case in ptydata.c from
      patch #158 to allow for the possibility that any platform may
      have special cases where "/dev/tty" is absent. For example,
      this can happen in a FreeBSD jail (patch by David Wolfskill).
    * add keyboard logic to map shift-tab into XK_ISO_Left_Tab,
      which is usually, not always, done by the X keyboard
    * portability fixes for some configure macros: CF_XOPEN_SOURCE
* Thu Nov 17 2011
  - Use libtinfo if available otherwise libncurses (required due
    bnc #729226)
* Wed Oct 19 2011
  - 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 Марьясин Семён).
    * 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).
