Release Notes: This release completes integration of the iconv extension, making the fontenc library unnecessary. It adds several options for showing available encoding data in fontenc (from ".enc" files), iconv, and built-in tables.
Release Notes: Uses updated configure-checks from xterm to make Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion ports work. Fixes a regression in the -encoding option. Several other portability/reliability improvements.
Release Notes: Improved portability, making checks with the configure script to distinguish working poll versus select, and working grantpt versus openpty functions. Tested on several releases of AIX, HPUX, IRIX64, Solaris, and Tru64, as well as various Linux distributions, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD.
Release Notes: Portability/configurability improvements, including fixes to accommodate inconsistent locale encoding names across platforms.
Release Notes: This release adds a configure option to use iconv rather than fontenc. For iconv, built-in support is provided for two DEC symbol encoding types. Configure options have been added to support debug-traces and aid in memory-leak checking, as well as providing the verbose command-line option. A few very old bugs have been fixed (such as the command line options that are supposed to pre-set encoding assignments).
Release Notes: A typographical error which prevented setuid from working with FreeBSD was fixed. The rpath feature is used for linking libraries in unusual places (mainly for Solaris).
Release Notes: An -alias option was added to override the locale.alias location. Scripts were added for RPM and Debian packages. There were many portability fixes.
Release Notes: Configuration on OpenBSD was improved, so it no longer requires setuid operation. Other portability fixes and improvements were made.
Release Notes: This release improves the configure script, e.g. for hosts with /usr/X11R6/lib. Minor cleanup of other configure script details. Fixes for two long-standing bugs for closing connections (did not restore non-blocking mode, and on hosts using "poll", closing the connection could result in an infinite loop).
Release Notes: Improved configurability for the fontenc library without pkg-config. An improved default value for locale.alias pathname. Other minor fixes/improvements.
