- updated to version 2.02:
  * Added support for %a and %A output formats (hexadecimal floating point), and
    eliminated the restriction on the number of displayed digits when specifying
    an output format with the --output-format (-o) option.  Improved error
    handling for formats specified with --output-format.
  * Added --digits (-d) to specify the number of digits to display.  Giving
    '--digits max' (-dmax) will use the full available precision.
  * Added support for various Unicode minus sign symbols.  Units now treats the
    figure dash (U+2012), the en dash (U+2013), and the minus (U+2212) as
    identical to the ASCII hyphen/minus symbol (U+002D).
  * The !message command in units data files has been fixed so it does not
    produce output when the --quiet option is given.
  * Improved error handling when unit names end with numbers without a '_'.
  * Modified units_cur to work with XML format as the txt format disappeared.
  * Corrected error in definition of the nat.
  * Improved manual.

Tue Aug  7 11:50:03 UTC 2012 -

- updated to version 2.00:

    General changes:
    * Unit lists provide conversion to sums of units (e.g. feet and inches).
    * Added --round (-r) and --show-factor (-S) options for use with unit lists.
    * Added unit lists aliases (e.g. time, usvol).
    * A python script, units_cur, can update currency data.
    * Units now flushes its output so you can talk to it with a pipe. 
    * Units now works in UTF-8 if the system supports it.  
    * Added --locale (-l) option to set the locale.
    * English units such as the gallon are defined in all locales, with US
      definitions by default except in the en_BG locale.  You can force
      the desired definition (Great Britain or US) by setting the
      environment variable UNITS_ENGLISH to GB or US.  
    * Revised and extended the documentation, with more examples. 
    * Added locale mapping to address Windows locale names. 
    * Updated and revised units database, including UTF-8 definitions and
      the 2010 CODATA. 
    * Fixed parsing bug for "1..2" or "1.2.3".  These now give an error. 
    * Unit names can end with a number in the form of a subscript that
      starts with a '_', as in 'X_3'.  

    Changes for units definition files:
    * Changed location and names of unit database, splitting off currency
      Files are /usr/local/share/units/{definitions,currency}.units and
      the personal units file is $HOME/.units instead of $HOME/units.dat.  
    * Personal units filename can be changed with MYUNITSFILE environment variable.
    * Prefixes can be defined in any order: it is no longer necessary to
      define longer ones before shorter ones.  
    * New definitions replace previous ones.  Personal units file is read
      after the system file rather than before.  
    * Changed syntax for function definitions.  Instead of [in-unit,out-unit] 
      you must now write units=[in-unit,out-unit].  Use 'units -c' to find
      places in your personal data files that need to be updated.  
    * Add optional domain and range to function definitions with syntax
      domain=[min,max] and range=[min,max].  Either min or max can be
      omitted to signal infinity. 
    * Unit list aliases can be defined with !unitlist command.
    * Added !var and !varnot and !endvar to include definitions based on
      environment variable settings.  
    * Added !set to set environment variables (if they aren't already set).
    * Added !message to display a message
    * Data files are in UTF-8, with !utf8 and !endutf8 commands to mark
      definitions that require UTF-8 support. 
    * Improved error handling when reading units.dat.

- Updated to version 1.88
  * Updated units.dat
  * Fixed bug involving readline version 4.2

Wed Feb 13 15:46:28 CET 2008 -

- Update to units 1.85.
  * Units reads ~/.units.dat if it exists before reading the standard
    units database.  
  * Added support for ** as an exponent operator.
  * Type 'search text' to list units that contain 'text' in their name.
  * Precedence of '*' changed to match precedence of '/'.
    (Multiplication by juxtaposition retains a higher precedence than
    '/'.)  The --oldstar option selects the old precedence and --newstar
    forces the new precedence.  

Thu Mar 29 11:40:20 CEST 2007 -

- Add bison to BuildRequires.

Mon Dec  4 11:03:49 CET 2006 -

- Update to units 1.85.
  * Added --one-line (-1) option which causes the program to print only
    one line of output. 
  * Added --compact option which causes the program to print only the
    conversion factors and a newline on output.
  * Added build support for DESTDIR.
  * Made minor changes that allow the program to be compiled into a
    library and linked with other programs.
  * Fixed bugs (including bus error on Intel Mac) and added

Thu Jun 13 15:07:09 CEST 2002 -

- update -> 1.74 (rewritten parser supports () for grouping,
  supports noninteger powers of numbers (e.g. 3^0.25), supports a bunch of
  functions (log, ln, log2, sin, cos, tan, exp) which can have units as
  arguments but they must reduce to dimensionless (e.g.
  log(watts/horsepower)), supports sqrt(unit) and cuberoot(unit), higher
  roots as unit^(1|4); functions can be defined in units.dat along with
  their inverse, and conversion to a function by specifying it's name alone
  as the "want" item; tables with linear interpolation)
