+20110404 5.9 release for upload to ftp.gnu.org
+
+20110402
+ + various build-fixes for the rpm/dpkg scripts.
+ + add "--enable-rpath-link" option to Ada95/configure, to allow
+ packages to suppress the rpath feature which is normally used for
+ the in-tree build of sample programs.
+ + corrected definition of libdir variable in Ada95/src/Makefile.in,
+ needed for rpm script.
+ + add "--with-shared" option to Ada95/configure script, to allow
+ making the C-language parts of the binding use appropriate compiler
+ options if building a shared library with gnat.
+
+20110329
+ > portability fixes for Ada95 binding:
+ + add configure check to ensure that SIGINT works with gnat. This is
+ needed for the "rain" sample program. If SIGINT does not work, omit
+ that sample program.
+ + correct typo in check of $PKG_CONFIG variable in Ada95/configure
+ + add ncurses_compat.c, to supply functions used in the Ada95 binding
+ which were added in 5.7 and later.
+ + modify sed expression in CF_NCURSES_ADDON to eliminate a dependency
+ upon GNU sed.
+
+20110326
+ + add special check in Ada95/configure script for ncurses6 reentrant
+ code.
+ + regen Ada html documentation.
+ + build-fix for Ada shared libraries versus the varargs workaround.
+ + add rpm and dpkg scripts for Ada95 and test directories, for test
+ builds.
+ + update test/configure macros CF_CURSES_LIBS, CF_XOPEN_SOURCE and
+ CF_X_ATHENA_LIBS.
+ + add configure check to determine if gnat's project feature supports
+ libraries, i.e., collections of .ali files.
+ + make all dereferences in Ada95 samples explicit.
+ + fix typo in comment in lib_add_wch.c (patch by Petr Pavlu).
+ + add configure check for, ifdef's for math.h which is in a separate
+ package on Solaris and potentially not installed (report by Petr
+ Pavlu).
+ > fixes for Ada95 binding (Nicolas Boulenguez):
+ + improve type-checking in Ada95 by eliminating a few warning-suppress
+ pragmas.
+ + suppress unreferenced warnings.
+ + make all dereferences in binding explicit.
+
+20110319
+ + regen Ada html documentation.
+ + change order of -I options from ncurses*-config script when the
+ --disable-overwrite option was used, so that the subdirectory include
+ is listed first.
+ + modify the make-tar.sh scripts to add a MANIFEST and NEWS file.
+ + modify configure script to provide value for HTML_DIR in
+ Ada95/gen/Makefile.in, which depends on whether the Ada95 binding is
+ distributed separately (report by Nicolas Boulenguez).
+ + modify configure script to add -g and/or -O3 to ADAFLAGS if the
+ CFLAGS for the build has these options.
+ + amend change from 20070324, to not add 1 to the result of getmaxx
+ and getmaxy in the Ada binding (report by Nicolas Boulenguez for
+ thread in comp.lang.ada).
+ + build-fix Ada95/samples for gnat 4.5
+ + spelling fixes for Ada95/samples/explain.txt
+ > fixes for Ada95 binding (Nicolas Boulenguez):
+ + add item in Trace_Attribute_Set corresponding to TRACE_ATTRS.
+ + add workaround for binding to set_field_type(), which uses varargs.
+ The original binding from 990220 relied on the prevalent
+ implementation of varargs which did not support or need va_copy().
+ + add dependency on gen/Makefile.in needed for *-panels.ads
+ + add Library_Options to library.gpr
+ + add Languages to library.gpr, for gprbuild
+
+20110307
+ + revert changes to limit-checks from 20110122 (Debian #616711).
+ > minor type-cleanup of Ada95 binding (Nicolas Boulenguez):
+ + corrected a minor sign error in a field of Low_Level_Field_Type, to
+ conform to form.h.
+ + replaced C_Int by Curses_Bool as return type for some callbacks, see
+ fieldtype(3FORM).
+ + modify samples/sample-explain.adb to provide explicit message when
+ explain.txt is not found.
+
+20110305
+ + improve makefiles for Ada95 tree (patch by Nicolas Boulenguez).
+ + fix an off-by-one error in _nc_slk_initialize() from 20100605 fixes

+
+20101120

+20100424
+ + fix some strict compiler warnings in ncurses library.
+ + modify configure macro CF_HEADER_PATH to not look for variations in
+ the predefined include directories.
+ + improve configure macros CF_GCC_VERSION and CF_GCC_WARNINGS to work

+20100417
+ + modify _nc_capcmp() to work with cancelled strings.
+ + correct translation of "^" in _nc_infotocap(), used to transform
+ terminfo to termcap strings

+ which adds rpath options for libraries in unusual places.
+ + improve CF_RPATH_HACK_2 by checking if the rpath option for a given
+ directory was already added.
+ + improve CF_RPATH_HACK_2 by using ldd to provide a standard list of
+ directories (which will be ignored).
+

+ + discard motion events
+ + avoid calling _nc_timed_wait when there is a mouse event

+ + refactor CF_SHARED_OPTS configure macro, making CF_RPATH_HACK more
+ reusable.
+ + improve configure CF_REGEX, similar fixes.

+ (default) and explicit paths, where we can find the entrypoint in the
+ given library.
+ + add check if Gpm_Open() returns a -2, e.g., for "xterm". This is
+ normally suppressed but can be overridden using $NCURSES_GPM_TERMS.
+ Ensure that Gpm_Close() is called in this case.
+
+20100320
+ + rename atari and st52 terminfo entries to atari-old, st52-old, use
+ newer entries from FreeMiNT by Guido Flohr (from patch/report by Alan

+ compile of make_hash and make_keys, improving cross-compilation of
+ ncursesw (report by Bernhard Rosenkraenzer).

+ TPUT in tput.1's manpage (Debian #573597, report/analysis by Anders

+20100306
+ + generate manpages for the *-config scripts, adapted from help2man
+ (suggested by Sven Joachim).

+ Ada95/make-tar.sh

+
+20100102
+ + minor improvement to tic's checking of similar SGR's to allow for the
+ most common case of SGR 0.

+
+20091227
+ + change order of lookup in progs/tput.c, looking for terminfo data
+ first. This fixes a confusion between termcap "sg" and terminfo
+ "sgr" or "sgr0", originally from 990123 changes, but exposed by

+ that module since 20090711 is in libtinfo.
+ + add configure option --enable-term-driver, to allow compiling with
+ terminal-driver. That is used in MinGW port, and (being somewhat
+ more complicated) is an experimental alternative to the conventional
+ termlib internals. Currently, it requires the sp-funcs feature to

+ test/test_addchstr.c
+ test/test_add_wchstr.c
+ + correct internal _nc_insert_ch() to use _nc_insert_wch() when

+
+20090105
+ + remove undeveloped feature in ncurses-config.in for setting
+ prefix variable.
+ + recent change to ncurses-config.in did not take into account the

+ (report by Frederic L W Meunier).
+
+20090104
+ + modify gen-pkgconfig.in to eliminate a dependency on rpath when
+ deciding whether to add $LIBS to --libs output; that should be shown
+ for the ncurses and tinfo libraries without taking rpath into
+ account.
+ + fix an overlooked change from $AR_OPTS to $ARFLAGS in mk-1st.awk,
+ used in static libraries (report by Marty Jack).
+
+20090103
+ + add a configure-time check to pick a suitable value for

+ for pkg-config (request by Jan Engelhardt).
+ + use $includedir symbol in misc/ncurses-config.in, add --includedir

+ + correct buffer-size after internal resizing of wide-character
+ set_field_buffer(), broken in 20081018 changes (report by Mike Gran).
+ + add "-i" option to test/filter.c to tell it to use initscr() rather
+ than newterm(), to investigate report on comp.unix.programmer that
+ ncurses would clear the screen in that case (it does not - the issue
+ was xterm's alternate screen feature).
+ + add check in mouse-driver to disable connection if GPM returns a
+ zero, indicating that the connection is closed (Debian #506717,
+ adapted from patch by Samuel Thibault).
+
+20081129
+ + improve a workaround in adding wide-characters, when a control
+ character is found. The library (cf: 20040207) uses unctrl() to
+ obtain a printable version of the control character, but was not
+ passing color or video attributes.
+ + improve test/ncurses.c 'a' test, using unctrl() more consistently to

+ + turn on _XOPEN_CURSES definition in curses.h
+ + add eterm-color entry (report by Vincent Lefevre) -TD
+ + correct use of key_name() in test/ncurses.c 'A' test, which only
