This is a log of changes that the ncurses C++ binding has gone
through starting with the integration of menu and forms integration
into the binding.
990731 + Improve support for pads. A viewport window may now be added to
a pad. It will then be possible to use a builtin panning mechanism
to view the pad.
970908 + Improve NCursesWindow class: added additional methods to
cover more ncurses functionality. Make refresh() and
noutrefresh() virtual members to allow different implementation
in the NCursesPanel class.
+ CAUTION: changed order of parameters in vline() and hline() of
+ Make refresh() in NCursesPanel non-static, it is now a
reimplementation of refresh() in the base class. Added
noutrefresh() to NCursesPanel.
+ Added NCursesForm and related classes to support libform
+ Moved most of configuration related stuff from cursesw.h to
+ Added NCursesApplication class to support easy configuration
of menu and forms related attributes as well as ripped of
title lines and Soft-Label-Keys for an application.
+ Support of Auto-Cleanup for a menus fieldlist.
+ Change of return type for current_item() and operator for
+ Enhanced demo.
+ Introduced the THROW and THROWS functions/macros to prepare
a smoother transition to real exception handling.
+ Exception classes provided in etip.h
+ Added the NCursesMenu class to support libmenu functionality.
+ The inheritace relation between NCursesWindow and NCursesColorWindow
was kind of brain damage. Monochrome is a special case of colored, so
the relation should be just the opposite. This would allow all
derived classes like NCursesPanel, NCursesMenu or NCursesForm to
To resolve that design flaw I put the color functionality into the
NCursesWindow class and it can be switched on by the static member
useColors(). NCursesColorWindow is still there for compatibility
