- 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 08:46:01 UTC 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 13:01:27 UTC 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  2 17:22:57 UTC 2013 -

- cleanup of spec file and patches

Fri Apr 26 11:06:37 UTC 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 10:30:33 UTC 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  2 10:29:45 UTC 2013 -

- config-guess-sub-update.patch:
  Update config.guess/sub for aarch64

Tue Feb 19 10:00:45 UTC 2013 -

- fixed check for existance of bdftopcf; added bdftopcf
  Buildrequires for openSUSE > 12.1 (bnc#804329)

Mon Feb 18 13:07:25 UTC 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 10:52:06 UTC 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.

- Verify GPG signatures.

Mon Nov 26 15:00:14 UTC 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 12:04:34 UTC 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 13:47:52 UTC 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 14:49:09 UTC 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 11:56:44 UTC 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  5 11:07:31 UTC 2012 -

- new fontpackages-devel only valid post-12.2

Mon Oct  1 13:59:52 UTC 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  6 09:53:04 UTC 2012 -

- prepare spec file for dropping SuSEconfig.fonts (openFATE#313536)

Tue Jul 17 15:13:06 UTC 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).

- 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 10:54:07 UTC 2011 -

- Use libtinfo if available otherwise libncurses (required due
  bnc #729226)

Wed Oct 19 01:47:15 UTC 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 14:20:26 UTC 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  7 15:52:47 UTC 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
  * 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 10:13:15 UTC 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 12:11:45 UTC 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 13:00:23 UTC 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  3 11:31:32 UTC 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 18:30:45 UTC 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 17:37:48 CEST 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).

- 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 17:13:30 CET 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).

Mon Feb 16 11:48:01 CET 2009 -

- updated to release xterm-242
  * fix  configure  check for XkbBell and provide appropriate parameter
    for it.
  * fix  a  caching problem with double-size fonts versus reverse video
    that could cause core dump.
  * repair double-size fonts from workaround used in [246]patch #240.
  * add new section to the VT Fonts menu which allows enabling or
    disabling the font, termcap (tcap-query), title and window operations.
  * add  fontWarnings  resource, to control whether to show warnings on
    failure to load a font.
  * improve warnings for unloadable fonts introduced in [247]patch #240
    by limiting those to the cases where a font would be specified
    directly by a resource setting rather than a derived fontname.
  * further amend fix for Debian #252873 from [248]patch #197 to treat
    a blank cell which does not have both foreground and background
    colored as a non-colored cell. This improves a special case where
    the cursor is on a blank cell which had foreground color scrolled
    in (report by Miroslav Lichvar).
    Also add the same logic when hiding cursor, so the outline matches
    the in-focus cursor.
  * modify internals to reduce places PAIRED_CHARS() is used, making
    WriteText() and ScrnWriteText() accept IChar array, as well as
    providing a wrapper for drawXtermText().
  * change default XIM font from "*" to "fixed" to improve startup time
    in zh_CN.UTF-8 locale (Mike Fabian, bnc#464930).

Tue Feb  3 17:48:09 CET 2009 -

- updated to release xterm-241
  * improve checks for missing bitmap fonts, fallback to "fixed" as
    needed to work around broken font-packages (report by Jacek Luczak).
  * fix breakage from patch #240 changes for xtermAddInput() (patches
    by Jeff Chua, Julien Cristau).

- updated to release xterm-240

  * use for linking xterm (suggested by Larry Doolittle).
  * add resource descriptions for input method to xterm manpage.
  * update configure script; consistently append to $CFLAGS rather
    than prepend.
  * add install-scripts rule to makefile, to allow roi8xterm and uxterm
    scripts to be altered independently of install-bin
  * add -maximized command-line option and corresponding resource
    (prompted by alt.os.linux newsgroup comment).
  * modify translations of scrollbar widget using xtermAddInput() (see
    patch #181) to accept the actions that the vt100 widget accepts, such as
    shift-insert to perform a paste operation (request by Martin Zwickel).
  * change default for allowTcapsOps resource to false, since it causes
    unexpected behavior for vim users with AltGr.

Thu Jan 29 15:55:23 CET 2009 -

- bnc#464930: change the default for the ximFont resource from "*"
  to "fixed", this still works fine with the XIM servers "scim"
  and "kinput2" and speeds up the startup time of xterm
  dramatically in zh_CN.UTF-8 and zh_HK.UTF-8 locales.

Tue Jan 13 14:39:25 CET 2009 -

- update to release xterm-239
  * correct  a  cast  in  input.c,  which  broke translation of numeric
    keypad  codes to pageup, pagedown, etc., on 64-bit platform (Debian
    #511138, report by Larry Doolittle).

Mon Jan  5 15:03:09 CET 2009 -

- update to release xterm-238, Linux relevant changes:

- Various security fixes for CVE-2008-2383 (ANSI command injection)

- xterm-disallow-window-and-fonts-ops.patch: add allowWindowOps and
  allowFontOps as "false" for default. bnc#462917

- Patch #238 - 2008/12/30
  # reset the screen wrapping-flag at the end of ClearRight to fix an
    occasional case where the last character of a scrolled and wrapped
    line would be cleared (patch by Joe Peterson).
  # modify to use POSIX coding for comparing resource settings such as
    locale, to work with locales such as Turkish (report by M Vefa
  # turn on configure paste64 feature by default (request by Jean-Philippe
    Bernardy). It is runtime enabled/disabled with allowWindowOps.
  # turn on configure tcap-query feature by default, add resource
    allowTcapOps to make this runtime enabled/disabled.
  # make OSC 3 (change X property, from patch #110) subject to
    allowWindowOps resource.
  # make VT220 DSR responses inactive in VT100-mode.
  # make DECUDK feature inactive in VT100-mode.
  # respond to incorrectly formatted DECRQSS with a cancel.
  # add allowFontOps resource to allow the fontsize-switching and font
    query/set control sequences to be enabled/disabled (prompted by Debian
  # some code cleanup based on gcc 4.x -Wconversion warnings in button.c
    and charproc.c
  # modify tcap-query feature to not return data for shifted cursor-keys
    when the keyboard type is set to vt220, since returning the same
    string for shifted/unshifted keys may confuse some applications
    (GenToo #212546).

- Patch #237 - 2008/09/14
  # improve usability of TrueType fonts by making the font-size switching
    for shifted keypad plus/minus use the faceSize resources to determine
    the order of fonts (when TrueType fonts are used) rather than the
    bitmap fonts, since their sizes may not be in the same order (report
    by H Merijn Brand)
  # remove an optimization of ConfigureNotify events from patch #236
    which seems to interfere with passing SIGWINCH to applications
    (GenToo #233836).
  # modify handling of altSendsEscape to reset the eightBitInput mode,
    like metaSendsEscape (patch by Ted Phelps).
  # add feature to show the text-cursor as an underline rather than a box,
    plus command-line options -uc and +uc and resource cursorUnderLine to
    control the feature (patch by Paul Lampert).
  # update config.guess, config.sub

Mon Jul 28 11:16:08 CEST 2008 -

- update to release xterm-236
  * correct memory reallocation when handling a paste of UTF-8
    text from [240]patch #225 changes (report/patch by Max
  * correct allocation of temporary buffer in xtermFindShell in
    case the user's $PATH contains no ":" (report/analysis
    by Victor Stinner, Freedesktop.Org Bugzilla #16790).
  * modify CF_XOPEN_SOURCE to add case for DragonFly BSD, to fix

Tue Jul 24 17:25:38 CEST 2007 -

- update to xterm-228.
  * modify  configure  script  to permit combining --with-utempter and
    --enable-setuid,  e.g.,  for using xterm with the utempter library
    on FreeBSD (report by Andriy Gapon).
  * modify  "Quit"  menu  entry  to  override  the  -hold command-line
  * add  a  check  in  the startup error-reporting to avoid writing to
    pipe  when  it  has  not  been opened. In that case, report errors
    directly to the standard error.
  * add   OPT_READLINE   definition  to  xtermcfg.hin,  overlooked  in
    [232]patch #205 (report by Kalle Olavi Niemitalo).
  * modify and, adding -r option to reverse
    the palettes for the extended colors.
  * check for partial overwrite or deletion of multi-column characters
    in  several cases, e.g., insert-character, delete-character, etc.,
    and  fill  the  remainder  of  the  cells used by the multi-column
    characters affected with blanks.
  * correct   character-class   codes   in   wide-character  mode  for
    characters 215, 247 (see also [233]patch #165).
  * fix  missing assignment for UTF-8 parsing in widget initialization
    (Debian #403360).
  * correct  index  expression  used to set line-wrapping flag, making
    selection  from  scrollback  work  consistently  (Debian  #430121,
    report by Vincent Lefevre).
  * amend  changes  to  handshake  in [234]patch #226 to accommodate
    Solaris,  which  relies  on the extra setting of the terminal size
    after   I/O   initialization.  Do  this  by  adding  new  resource
    ptySttySize,  which is false for Linux and MacOS X, i.e., true for
    for  Solaris and other SVR4 platforms, as well as FreeBSD (reports
    by David Wood, Renato Botelho).
  * check  for  X  events  after  cursor-left,  and  carriage  return,
    consistent with indexing operations (comments by Vegard Nossum and
    Ingo Molnar on a mailing-list).
  * initialize  the  .keyboard  structure,  needed  for some platforms
    (such as Solaris) after [235]patch #227 fixes for keysyms (patch
    by David Wood).
  * update config.guess, config.sub
- Bugzilla #293793: avoid requiring the an iso8859* version of
  adobe-helvetica for the menus. The menus are ASCII only anyway at
  the moment, it doesn't matter at all whether a Unicode font
  (iso10646-1) or any of the iso8859* fonts is used, they are all
  identical in the ASCII region anyway.
  Using the iso* wildcard makes xterm work even if the recoded
  versions of the bitmap fonts are missing in a minimal installation
  and only the Unicode versions are there.

Thu Jul 12 17:19:32 CEST 2007 -

- no longer overwrite translation for the key ALT, use altIsNotMeta
  to leave it for users choise using Meta or Alt mode (bug #262330)

- Patch #225 - 2007/3/24:
  * add useClipping resource to allow clipping to be disabled.
  * use   XftDrawSetClipRectangles  to  work  around  Xft  pixel-trash
    (report by Reuben Thomas).
  * add    configure    option   --enable-tcap-fkeys,   and   resource
    tcapFunctionKeys,   which  can  be  used  to  tell  xterm  to  use
    function-key  definitions  from the termcap (or terminfo) which it
    uses to set $TERM on startup.
  * add  resources altIsNotMeta and altSendsEscape to allow one to use
    Alt-keys  like  the  meta-key  even if they are bound to different
    keycodes (prompted by discussion with Daniel Jacobowitz).
  * revert a change from [229]patch #216 that unnecessarily made the
    meta  modifier override the eightBitInput resource if the alt- and
    meta-modifiers   happened   to  overlap  (report/patch  by  Daniel
  * correct  associated  font for active icon for colored text (broken
    in [230]patch #224).
  * correct ifdef's for Darwin (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
  * add  highlightTextColor  resource, and options -selfg, -selbg like
    xwsh (adapted from patch by Victor Vaile).
  * revise  find_closest_color()  function  to  address  concern about
    borrowing from Tcl/Tk (request by Dan McNichol).
  * add  "spawn-new-terminal"  action,  which  can  be assigned to key
    translation,  allowing  one to spawn a new copy of xterm using the
    current  process'  working directory (adapted from patch by Daniel
  * improve  select/paste  between UTF-8 and Latin1 xterms by adapting
    the  translations  from  [231]patch #185. Extend that to include
    Unicode fullwidth forms FF00-FF5E. Also modify select/paste of DEC
    line-drawing characters in Latin1 mode to use ASCII characters.
  * add  "Enable  Bell  Urgency"  to  VT Options menu, removed "Enable
    Margin Bell".
  * add  bellIsUrgent  resource to control whether the Urgency hint is
  * modify  to  set  Urgency  window manager hint on bell, reset it on
    Focus-In event (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
  * add   --disable-setgid   configure  option  (request  by  Miroslav
  * fix  a  possible  infinite loop in last change to dabbrev-expand()
    (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
  * modify  initialization  to set the pty erase value if the erase is
    set  in  the ttyModes resource. This overrides the ptyInitialErase
    setting (request by Lluis Batlle i Rossell).
  * add  initialFont resource to xterm widget, like tek-widget (Debian
  * amend change to boldMode from [232]patch #223 for Debian #347790.
    As  noted  in  Debian #412599, that made xterm no longer match the
    documented  behavior.  Add  new  resource  alwaysBoldMode to allow
    overriding  the comparison between normal/bold fonts when deciding
    whether to use overstriking to simulate bold fonts.
  * restore  background  color  in  ClearCurBackground(),  omitted  in
    changes for [233]patch #223 (report by Miroslav Lichvar).
  * correct  logic  for  repainting  double-width  TrueType characters
    (prompted by test-case for Novell #246573).
  * add  a  check  to  avoid  trying  to  repeat a multibyte character
    (report by Sami Farin).
  * modify  parameter  to  XftNameParse()  to select wide face-name as
    needed,  to  make  -fd  option  work (patch by Mike Fabian, Novell
  * correct  logic  for  mouse  highlight  tracking's  abort sequence,
    broken  in  a  restructuring  modification  from [234]patch #224
    (report by Thomas Wolff).
  * revert the simplification of blinking cursor, since that broke the
    xor'ing introduced in [235]patch #193 (report by Thomas Wolff).
- obsoletes xterm-224i.patch

Thu Mar 22 17:35:02 CET 2007 -

- enabled double-width support; switched to configure (Bug #246573)

Mon Feb 12 14:33:36 CET 2007 -

- updated to xterm-224 (2007/02/11)
  * simplify code for set/reset mode for blinking cursor (patch by
    Emanuele Giaquinta).
  * modify  dabbrev-expand() to restart after the last match (patch by
    Emanuele Giaquinta).
  * add  control  sequences  for enabling/disabling focus in/out event
    reporting (request by Bram Moolenaar).
  * improve  startup  performance  of menus by adding resource setting
    menuLocale which can be set to override X's lengthy initialization
    of  fontsets  -  which  are  seldom  used  for the Xaw popup menus
    (adapted by patch by Dave Coffin).
  * modify  do_precomposition() function and to handle
    21-bit codes vs the 16-bit codes those were written for, and fix a
    few mis-sorted codes (patch by Thomas Wolff).
  * handle  special  case  in  -cjk_width  which unexpectedly caused a
    character's  width  to change when a combining character (patch by
    Thomas Wolff)
  * fix build for GNU/KFreeBSD (Debian #40111).
  * consolidate GC creation/updating into a single module to reduce GC
    manipulation  (prompted  by  Debian #389476, though a complete fix
    would involve optimizing the scrolling behavior).
  * fix  ifdef  of  xtermCellWidth(),  which  broke for a case without
    TrueType  and  without  wide-character  support  (report by Martin
  * undo a comparison in handle_translated_exposure which did not work
    due  to  X server optimization. That caused the inner border to be
    repainted  with  unexpected  colors when handling a repaint, e.g.,
    after  switching to/from another workspace (Debian #401726, Redhat
   Bugzilla #223027).
  * allow  -cr option to override cursor color when -ah option is used
    (Debian #406502).
  * add  a  note  in  xterm's  manpage explaining that the -bw (or -w)
    option  is  only  used  by  the  window manager, if at all (Debian
  * make Selection of VT Fonts work with selectToClipboard resource.
  * correct  length  calculation for Selection entry of VT Fonts menu,
    broken since it ignored the actual selection length since X11R4.
  * fixes  for  fontsize  changes  with  -fa  option  (Redhat Bugzilla

Fri Dec  1 06:21:09 CET 2006 -

- updated to xterm-223 (2006/11/30)
  * add   --enable-rectangles  configure  option  (request  by  Martin
  * correct default value for --with-symlink configure option.
  * fixes configure script macros that use $X_EXTRA_LIBS.
  * modify  configure script to provide support for pre-package config
    versions of Xft (FreeType).
  * add  the Xaw scrollbar translations resource to the xterm manpage,
    add  an example showing how to change the mouse button assignments
    (Debian #382225).
  * amend a change from [227]patch #216, which omitted modifiers for
    control,  meta, etc., if they were mixed with any other modifiers.
    The   intent   of   the   change   was  to  avoid  confusion  with
    XK_Mode_switch  and  XK_ISO_Level3_Shift;  the  check  is now done
     explicitly (report by Daniel Jacobowitz).
  * interpret    a    negative    value    for   modifyCursorKeys   or
    modifyFunctionKeys  resources  to  disable the respective features
    (prompted by Novell #220728).
  * amend  cell-width computation for FreeType from [228]patch #217,
    which  did  not  work  for  VT100  line-drawing characters (Debian
    #399638, GenToo #147111).
  * amend a change from [229]patch #216, which made alt-modifier on a
    cursor-key send a modifier parameter (Novell #220728).
  * correct  an  off-by-one that made DECCRA not work (report/patch by
    Martin Pirker).
  * revert an optimization in SGR_Foreground() and SGR_Background from
    [230]patch #209 (Debian #347722, analysis by Pierre Lombard).
  * fix for boldMode (Debian #347790, patch by Tim Pope).
  * amend  fix  for  -iconic  in  [231]patch  #208,  which broke the
    positioning part of -geom with toolbar configuration.
  * fix  to  prevent  indexing  error in regular expressions (patch by
    Dennis Schneider).
  * fixes  to  make  the  internalBorder  area not change color due to
    reverseVideo and/or related exposure events. The latter was a very
    old bug exposed in [232]patch #196 (report by Neil Hoggarth, also
    Debian #397624).
- obsoletes bug220728.diff

Tue Nov 28 06:02:04 CET 2006 -

- bug220728.diff:
  * Essentially the problem reported is that xterm #216 does a more
    complete job of applying modifier parameters to cursor-,
    function- and other keys. Some users would like to disable the
    feature. Patch to allow modifyCursorKeys to be disabled.
    Currently the resource accepts values 0 to 3. This adds a -1 to
    disable the feature. Most users won't want to do this.
    (Bug #220728)

Wed Oct 18 11:35:46 CEST 2006 -

- updated to xterm-222
  * minor optimization for recoloring cursor via dynamic colors.
  * fix  a  bug  caused  by restructuring of tek4014 widget
    (report by Paul Schenkeveld)

Mon Oct  9 18:28:29 CEST 2006 -

- updated to xterm-221
  * fix  for  regular expressions: the code which converted the column
    offset within a line did not check properly for the end of a line,
    and if allowed to match the whole line, would select the beginning
    of  the  following line. If the following line were empty, in turn
    it   would   select   from   the   next,   etc.  (report  by  Sean
  * minor  optimization  of  color  allocation to avoid repainting the
    screen if the corresponding color had not been allocated.
  * fixes for vttests/ (report by Egmont Koblinger).
  * add  terminfo  building  block  entries for modifiers of the 6-key
    editing keypad.
  * fix for initialization of tek4014 which broke on QNX 6.1

Mon Sep 11 17:18:14 CEST 2006 -

- fixed luit/luitx path (Bug #204861)

Mon Sep 11 10:26:14 CEST 2006 -

- updated to xterm-220
  * make  "xterm  -t -iconic" work as expected, i.e., start in
    tek4014 mode, but iconified.

Tue Sep  5 18:38:36 CEST 2006 -

- updated to xterm-219
  * some internal restructuring to separate data for vt100 and tek4014
  * fix  a  few  cases  where  form-events  would be seen by the vt100
    widget when built with the toolbar configuration.

Tue Aug 29 11:19:48 CEST 2006 -

-  updated to xterm-218
   * change behavior when encountering an illegal character in a
     title string. Rather than reject the string, translate
     illegal characters into "?" and use the string (requested by
     Thomas Wolff).
   * improve checks for nonprinting characters in title strings
     (report by Samuel Thibault).
   * correct typo in menu labels, changing print-redirect to
     print-redir, making it follow the manpage and match the
     usage for the actions table (report by Samuel Thibault).
   * correct a typo that prevents building with some older systems
     such as Solaris 2.6 (report by Julian Bridle).

Tue Aug 22 05:43:29 CEST 2006 -

- updated to xterm-217
  * minor improvements to FreeType font layout and drawing.
  * add  a  check  in  the  ptyInitialErase  logic  to ensure that
    the termcap was read (Redhat Bugzilla #201246).
  * limit  changes  for  reverse-video from patch #216 to cases
    where  the  reverse-video  command-line  option is used (report
    by Zdenek Sekera).
  * correct  bitmap-derived pointsizes for TrueType fonts; they
    should be  proportional  to  the  square  root  of the area of
    the bitmap fonts.
  * add  resources  to specify pointsize of TrueType fonts (request
    by Reuben Thomas).
  * improve  install  of  terminfo  by filtering out harmless
    messages related  to  extended  capabilities. At the same time,
    use ncurses tic  to  compile  the extended capabilities if
    possible (report by Zdenek Sekera).
  * update "xterm+pcfkeys" terminfo entry to correspond to patch

Wed Aug 16 18:02:44 CEST 2006 -

- Remove unneeded BuildRequire on xorg-x11.

Wed Aug  9 12:09:29 CEST 2006 -

- fixed /usr/share/fonts directory conflict with filesystem

Fri Aug  4 16:01:27 CEST 2006 -

- updated to xterm-216
  * improve handling of ConfigureNotify events by checking if there are
    further events in the queue which obsolete the current one (adapted
    from   rxvt   2.7.5).   Only   the   normal   normal  (non-toolbar)
    configuration is addressed in this patch.
  * several changes to terminfo:
       + incorporate some minor changes from ncurses to help keep these

                   modify  sgr/sgr0  in  xterm-new to improve tgetent's
                   derived "me".

                   remove ncv flag from xterm-16color

                   improve  xterm-256color  by  combining  the 16-color
                   setaf/setab  strings with SGR 48, and cancelling the
                   setf/setb strings.

       + use extended function-key definitions for xterm-sun, xterm-sco
       + add    terminfo    building-blocks    corresponding   to   the
         modifyFunctionKeys and modifyCursorKeys resources.
  * ifdef'd  Sun  function-key feature to make it optional, like HP and
  * extend  table  for  termcap-query  feature through F63, and updated to match.
  * modify  logic  for  function-key input processing to allow function
    key  numbers  which are constructed by control- and shift-modifiers
    to extend beyond X's hardcoded limit of 35.
  * add control sequence to set or reset the eightBitInput resource.
  * change  default  resource  modifyFunctionKeys to 2 to avoid sending
    SS3 with parameters (report by Kalle Olavi Niemitalo).
  * add  control  sequences for setting and resetting the values of the
    modifyCursorKeys, modifyFunctionKeys and modifyOtherKeys resources.
  * add modifyFunctionKeys resource like modifyCursorKeys. Setting this
    to  zero  allows  one  to  use  the control- and shift-modifiers to
    construct  function  key strings, for terminals using many function
    keys, e.g., for xterm-sun or xterm-sco.
  * modify screen responses and function-key logic to reduce the number
    of  writes  made,  to make it less likely that an application would
    read  only part of a function-key in a read operation (suggested by
    John E Urbanczyk).
  * add  combiningChars  resource, which allows the user to specify the
    maximum  number  of  combining characters that xterm will store for
    each  cell  in  wide-character  mode (prompted by request by Markus
    Kuhn to increase the limit from 2).
  * improve logic in metaSendsEscape in case the Alt- and Meta-keys are
    mapped  to  different modifiers. That allows one to use the Alt-key
    for  shifting  in  the eightBitInput and use a Meta-key modifier to
    prefix the result with an <ESC>.
  * improve  modifyCursorKeys  logic to prevent it from modifying codes
    where  eightBitInput  or  metaSendsEscape  are  set (request by Dan
  * improve modifyCursorKeys logic to prevent it from changing the user
    input when other modifiers such as AltGr are used (report by Thomas
  * extend  modifyCursorKeys  to  include  the  numeric  keypad when in
    application mode.
  * improve  -reverse  (-rv)  option  (patch  by Jason Vas Dias, Redhat
  * workaround  for  color resources on Fedora-5 which made the toolbar
    colors inconsistent.
  * corrected  calls  used  for  --disable-setuid option, add debugging
    traces to help diagnose this area.
  * modify  configure  script to ensure that USE_UTMP_SETGID is defined
    only  if  the check for POSIX saved-ids succeeds, or corresponds to
    one of the BSD systems known to have a workable setegid function.
  * extend configure check for POSIX saved-ids to include BSD systems
  * modify  CF_SYSV  configure  macro  to  work with gcc on HPUX 10.20,
    whose broken <term.h> relies on including <termios.h>.
  * change  order of setuid/setgid ifdef checks in Imakefile to make it
    simpler  to  produce  a  setgid  install,  allowing  the  latter to

    (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).

  on the fly.

  * correct variable used to store temporary result from lookup of
    bold font, when initializing the wide-bold-font data and no
    immediate match is found by asking for a bold variant of the
