- Update to autogen 5.9.6.
  * Hierarchically valued options can now be stored with ``--save-opt'' option
  * option state may now be "reset".  This is indistinguishable from the
    compiled state.  If option state is "saved" later, such an option will
    not appear in the save file.
  * there is a new option argument type:  time.  Its argument string
    represents years (?!), months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds.
    The value seen by the program is an integer number of seconds.
    (This is not a date/time.)  The duration of a year is always 365 days
    and the duration of a month is always 30 days.
  * various obscure cleanups.

- Update to autogen 5.9.5.
  * integer number arguments may now have their values suffixed with
    one of the letters k/K/m/M/g/G/t/T to signify scaling by powers
    of 1000 (lower case) or 1024 (upper case).  Specify, "scaled".
  * AutoOpts "arg-type" may now be set to "file".  Existence of the directory
    portion of the name will be checked.  The existence (or not) of the actual
    file may also be checked.  Finally, the file may be pre-opened with either
    "fopen(3C)" or "open(2)".
  * The "columns" program now accepts a "--fill" option to cause it to fill
    text instead of filling columns.
  * The tests should no longer indirectly reference installed versions of
    the binaries.  They should all work out of the build directories.

- Update to autogen 5.9.3.
  * libopts requires strsignal, so the config test has been moved.
  * fixed ``--save'' option bug
  * programs may now choose to have config files kept in cannonical form
    ("C" locale), even if long option names are translated.  The option
    definition file must contain ``no-xlate = opt-cfg;'' or
    ``no-xlate = opt;''  See the documentation for details.

- Update to autogen 5.9.2.
  * GNU GPL v3 is now emitted with the "gpl" and "lgpl" functions.
  * usage.tpl template has been added.
  * getopt.tpl uses this template for constructing its usage string.
  * if "short-usage" or "full-usage" can be used to specify the form
    of the usage text:
    * not supplied -> compute it at run time
    * supplied, but empty -> use "usage.tpl" to compute it
    * is a variable name -> insert into option structure
    * is text -> emit the text and point to it from option structure

- Update to autogen 5.9.1.
  * getopt.tpl template is fixed to not require the internal header
  * MAXPATHLEN will use _MAX_PATH on Windows platforms
  * new libopts configuration option: --disable-optional-args This will #define
    NO_OPTIONAL_OPT_ARGS in config.h and cause the built library to ignore the
    OPTST_ARG_OPTIONAL bit in an option descriptor.  autoopts generated code
    compiled with NO_OPTIONAL_OPT_ARGS #defined will never have that bit set in
    the option descriptors either.  If libopts has been so configured, then the
    installed options.h header will contain: #define NO_OPTIONAL_OPT_ARGS 1 so
    that client code will generally be compiled with that flag set.
    The OPTST_ARG_OPTIONAL bit is ignored regardless.
  * Fixed up --load-opts environment variable processing.  You can
    now correctly suppress config file loading with either:
  * added new auto-supported option, --usage.  It is incorporated
    by specifying ``usage-opt;'' in the option definitions file.
  * libopts now uses several exit codes from sysexits.h:
    EX_NOINPUT  (66) - a specified config file cannot be found
    EX_SOFTWARE (70) - libopts error - please file a bug report
    EX_CONFIG   (78) - a NULL option descriptor was passed in - user bug

Sun Feb 18 10:10:24 CET 2007 -

- Update to autogen 5.9.
  * a script for producing Debian packages is included
  * including of templates and definitions now works more like
    ``#include "foo"'' instead of ``#include <foo>''.
  * fixed sizeof(int) != sizeof(size_t) bug.
  * fixed incorrect argument number format string

Mon Jan 29 11:37:57 CET 2007 -

- Update to autogen 5.8.9.
  * GREP is now a configurable.  (Sheesh!)
  * options with hierarchical structure (nested values) had some
    bugs in the config file parsing code.  Fixed.
  * Since YACC is not used any more, it is no longer required. :)

Sun Oct 15 10:21:32 CEST 2006 -

- Update to autogen 5.8.7.
  * Tweaks for Windows' compat/windows-config.h
  * new string-table convenience functions:  string-table-add-ref and
  * fixed a value referencing bug in enumeration arg handling
    (seen on platforms where sizeof(int) != sizeof(void*)).

Fri Oct 13 14:12:12 CEST 2006 -

- add guile-devel buildrequires.

Thu Oct 12 20:29:46 CEST 2006 -

- added gmp-devel to buildrequires (guile) 

Mon Oct  9 14:10:30 CEST 2006 -

- Update to autogen 5.8.6.
  * AutoOpts code presumed that there were no #defines for the option
    names.  You can now force aside such conflicts.
  * AutoOpts generated code unconditionally #includes limits.h and stdint.h.
  * aliased pointer cleanups should allow higher optimization of code.
  * The installation of the tear-off libopt library is now optional
    to the installers of client projects.

Mon May 15 15:31:27 CEST 2006 -

- Update to autogen 5.8.5.
  * ag-fprintf will now allow you to emit text into a suspended output stream.
  * string tables have been implemented as a scheme function.  This makes it
    very easy to produce an array of characters containing NUL termintaed
    strings and have these string offsets (indexes) available for indexing into
    the string arrays.
  * The libopts code will omit Windows-unfriendly code if the compile defines
    _WIN32 and does not define __CYGWIN__.
  * suffix specifications in the pseudo macro may now construct an output
    file name format string using scheme code, a la:
      [= autogen5 template
      h=(string-append (getenv "TMPDIR") "/%s-hdr.h")  =]
    The "%s" will still be replaced by the base name.
  * the scheme function "version-compare" will allow you to compare
    two dotted version numbers.  These can be your own versions or
    that of autogen.  The scheme variable ``autogen-version'' has been
    around for a long time and may be used as one of the arguments.
  * #assert is now active in definition files.  If the text begins
    with a back quote, it is handed off to the shell for processing.
    If an open parenthesis, it is handed off to Guile.  If it is
    anything else, it is ignored.
