Changelog for libncurses5-6.0-275.5.x86_64.rpm :
Mon Jul 6 14:00:00 2015
- Add ncurses patch 20150606 pre-release
+ make ABI 6 the default by updates to and VERSION, with the
intention that the existing ABI 5 should build as before using the
\"--with-abi=5\" option.
+ regenerate ada- and man-html documentation.
+ minor fixes to color- and util-manpages.
+ fix a regression in Ada95/gen/, to handle special case of
Cygwin, which uses the broken-linker feature.
+ amend fix for CF_NCURSES_CONFIG used in test/configure to assume that
ncurses package scripts work when present for cross-compiling, as the
lessor of two evils (cf: 20150530).
+ add check in configure script to disallow conflicting options
\"--with-termlib\" and \"--enable-term-driver\".

+ modify script used to generate map/sym files to mark 5.9.20150530 as
the last \"5.9\" version, and regenerated the files. That makes the
files not use \".current\" for the post-5.9 symbols. This also
corrects the label for _nc_sigprocmask used in when weak symbols are
configured for the ncursest/ncursestw libraries (prompted by
discussion with Sven Joachim).
+ fix typo in NEWS (report by Sven Joachim).
- Add ncurses patch 20150627
+ modify configure script to remove deprecated ABI 5 symbols when
building ABI 6.

map-files, but marked as deprecated so that they can easily be
suppressed from ABI 6 builds (Debian #788610).
+ comment-out \"screen.xterm\" entry, and inherit screen.xterm-256color
from xterm-new (report by Richard Birkett) -TD
+ modify read_entry.c to set the error-return to -1 if no terminal
databases were found, as documented for setupterm.
+ add test_setupterm.c to demonstrate normal/error returns from the
setupterm and restartterm functions.
+ amend cleanup change from 20110813 which removed redundant definition
of ret_error, etc., from tinfo_driver.c, to account for the fact that
it should return a bool rather than int (report/analysis by Johannes
- Add ncurses patch 20150704
+ fix a few problems reported by Coverity.
+ fix comparison against \"/usr/include\" in misc/
(report by Daiki Ueno, Debian #790548, cf: 20141213).

e.g., from reading /dev/null (cf: 20080804).
+ modify tic so that it can read from the standard input, or from
a character device. Because tic uses seek\'s, this requires writing

about snprintf, noting that this function is weakly standardized.
+ add configure checks for strlcat, strlcpy and snprintf, to help
reduce bogus warnings with OpenBSD builds.
+ build-fix for OpenBSD 4.9 to supply consistent intptr_t declaration
+ update config.guess, config.sub

given to rename the corresponding tic- or tinfo-libraries (report
by Sven Joachim).

the base ncurses library, so tic\'s dependencies include both ncurses
and termlib.

* fix build work for term-driver when --enable-wgetch-events option is

* use types to fix some questionable casts to void
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111210

i.e., the database iterator was not initialized. This case is needed
to when tic is translating to termcap, rather than loading the
database (cf: 20111001).

Fri Nov 18 13:00:00 2011
- Update to tack 1.07-20110626
- Enlarge hash size for run time linker
- Enforce bind references to global function symbols to the
definition within libncurses and libtinfo

Thu Nov 17 13:00:00 2011
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111112

* add pccon entries for OpenBSD console (Alexei Malinin).

* build-fix for OpenBSD 4.9 with gcc 4.2.1, setting _XOPEN_SOURCE to
600 to work around inconsistent ifdef\'ing of wcstof between C and
C++ header files.

* modify capconvert script to accept more than exact match on \"xterm\",
e.g., the \"xterm-
*\" variants, to exclude from the conversion (patch
by Robert Millan).

* fix a typo misc/, used in uninstalling pc-files.
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111030

* modify make_db_path() to allow creating \"terminfo.db\" in the same
directory as an existing \"terminfo\" directory. This fixes a case
where switching between hashed/filesystem databases would cause the
new hashed database to be installed in the next best location -
root\'s home directory.

* add variable cf_cv_prog_gnat_correct to those passed to
config.status, fixing a problem with Ada95 builds (cf: 20111022).

* change feature test from _XPG5 to _XOPEN_SOURCE in two places, to
accommodate broken implementations for _XPG6.

* eliminate usage of NULL symbol from etip.h, to reduce header

* add configure check to decide when to add _XOPEN_SOURCE define to
compiler options, i.e., for Solaris 10 and later (cf: 20100403).
This is a workaround for gcc 4.6, which fails to build the c++
binding if that symbol is defined by the application, due to
incorrectly combining the corresponding feature test macros
(report by Peter Kruse).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111022

* correct logic for discarding mouse events, retaining the partial
events used to build up click, double-click, etc, until needed
(cf: 20110917).

* fix configure script to avoid creating unused Ada95 makefile when
gnat does not work.

* cleanup width-related gcc 3.4.3 warnings for 64-bit platform, for the
internal functions of libncurses. The external interface of courses
uses bool, which still produces these warnings.
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111015

* improve description of --disable-tic-depends option to make it
clear that it may be useful whether or not the --with-termlib
option is also given (report by Sven Joachim).

* amend termcap equivalent for set_pglen_inch to use the X/Open
\"YI\" rather than the obsolete Solaris 2.5 \"sL\" (cf: 990109).

- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111008

* moved static data from db_iterator.c to lib_data.c

* modify db_iterator.c for memory-leak checking, fix one leak.

of ncurses rather than Requires, as well as Libs.private for the
other library dependencies (prompted by Debian #644728).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20111001

* modify tic \"-K\" option to only set the strict-flag rather than force
source-output. That allows the same flag to control the parser for
input and output of termcap source.

* modify _nc_getent() to ignore backslash at the end of a comment line,
making it consistent with ncurses\' parser.

* restore a special-case check for directory needed to make termcap
text files load as if they were databases (cf: 20110924).

* modify tic\'s resolution/collision checking to attempt to remove the
conflicting alias from the second entry in the pair, which is
normally following in the source file. Also improved the warning
message to make it simpler to see which alias is the problem.

* improve performance of the database iterator by caching search-list.
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110925

* add a missing \"else\" in changes to _nc_read_tic_entry().
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110924

* updated CF_CURSES_LIBS check in test/configure script.

* modify configure script and makefiles to split TIC_ARGS and
TINFO_ARGS into pieces corresponding to LDFLAGS and LIBS variables,
to help separate searches for tic- and tinfo-libraries (patch by Nick
Alcock aka \"Nix\").

* build-fix for lib_mouse.c changes (ch: 20110917).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110917

* fix compiler warning for clang 2.9

* improve merging of mouse events (integrated patch by Damien

* correct mask-check used in lib_mouse for wheel mouse buttons 4/5
(patch by Damien Guibouret).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110910

* modify misc/ to select a \"linux\" entry which works with
the current kernel rather than assuming it is always \"linux3.0\"
(cf: 20110716).

* revert a change to getmouse() which had the undesirable side-effect
of suppressing button-release events (report by Damien Guibouret,
cf: 20100102).

* add xterm+kbs fragment from xterm #272 -TD

* add configure option --with-pkg-config-libdir to provide control over
the actual directory into which pc-files are installed, do not use
the pkg-config environment variables (discussion with Frederic L W

* add link to mailing-list archive in, as done in
FAQ (prompted by question by Andrius Bentkus).

* improve manpage install by adjusting the \"#include\" examples to
show the ncurses-subdirectory used when --disable-overwrite option
is used.

* install an alias for \"curses\" to the ncurses manpage, tied to the
- -with-curses-h configure option (suggested by Reuben Thomas).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110903

* propagate error-returns from wresize, i.e., the internal
increase_size and decrease_size functions through resize_term (report
by Tim van der Molen, cf: 20020713).

* fix typo in tset manpage (patch by Sven Joachim).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110820

* add a check to ensure that termcap files which might have \"^?\" do
not use the terminfo interpretation as \"\\177\".

* minor cleanup of X-terminal emulator section of terminfo.src -TD

* add terminator entry -TD

* add simpleterm entry -TD

* improve wattr_get macros by ensuring that if the window pointer is
null, then the attribute and color values returned will be zero
(cf: 20110528).
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110813

* add substitution for $RPATH_LIST to misc/

* improve performance of tic with hashed-database by caching the
database connection, using atexit() to cleanup.

* modify treatment of 2-character aliases at the beginning of termcap
entries so they are not counted in use-resolution, since these are
guaranteed to be unique. Also ignore these aliases when reporting
the primary name of the entry (cf: 20040501)

* double-check gn (generic) flag in terminal descriptions to
accommodate old/buggy termcap databases which misused that feature.

* minor fixes to _nc_tgetent(), ensure buffer is initialized even on

from tic/infocmp.

* when writing termcap source, ensure that colons in the description
field are translated to a non-delimiter, i.e., \"=\".

* add \"-0\" option to tic/infocmp, to make the termcap/terminfo source
use a single line.

* add a null-pointer check when handling the $CC variable.
- Add ncurses patch 5.9.20110730

* modify configure script and makefiles in c++ and progs to allow the
directory used for rpath option to be overridden, e.g., to work
around updates to the variables used by tic during an install.

* add -K option to tic/infocmp, to provide stricter BSD-compatibility
for termcap output.

* add _nc_strict_bsd variable in tic library which controls the
\"strict\" BSD termcap compatibility from 20110723, plus these

* allow escapes such as \"\\8\" and \"\\9\" when reading termcap

* disallow \"\\a\", \"\\e\", \"\\l\", \"\\s\" and \"\\:\" escapes when reading
termcap files, passing through \"a\", \"e\", etc.

* expand \"\\:\" as \"\\072\" on output.

there is a string-typed token lacking the \"=\" marker.

* fix a few memory leaks in _nc_tgetent.

* fix a few places where reading from a termcap file could refer to
freed memory.

* add an overflow check when converting terminfo/termcap numeric
values, since terminfo stores those in a short, and they must be

* correct internal variables used for translating to termcap \"%>\"
feature, and translating from termcap %B to terminfo, needed by
tctest (cf: 19991211).

* amend a minor fix to acsc when loading a termcap file to separate it

the SetAttr() macro (patch by David Benjamin).

* add kich1 to sun terminfo entry (Yuri Pankov)

* use bold rather than reverse for smso in sun-color terminfo entry
(Yuri Pankov).

* improve generation of termcap using tic/infocmp -C option, e.g.,
to correspond with 4.2BSD (prompted by discussion with Yuri Pankov
regarding Schilling\'s test program):

* entries (Benjamin Sittler, Emanuele Giaquinta)

* modify _nc_viscbuf2() and _tracecchar_t2() to show wide-character nulls.

in non-blocking mode (patch by Clemens Ladisch).

* fix configure script option --with-database, which was coded as an
enable-type switch.

* modify lib_addch.c to compensate for removal of wide-character test
from unctrl() in 20090704 (Debian #539735).

* fix an infinite recursion when adding a legacy-coding 8-bit value
using insch() (report by Clemens Ladisch).

* work around antique BSD game\'s manipulation of stdscr, etc., versus
SCREEN\'s copy of the pointer (Debian #528411).

* add a cast to wattrset macro to avoid compiler warning when comparing
its result against ERR (adapted from patch by Matt Kraii, Debian #528374).

* add vwmterm terminfo entry (patch by Bryan Christ).

* build fix for _nc_free_and_exit() change in 20090418 (report by Christian Ebert).

* extend ansi.sys pfkey capability from kf1-kf10 to kf1-kf48, moving
function key definitions from emx-base for consistency -TD

* improve install-rules for pc-files (patch by Miroslav Lichvar).

* make it work with $DESTDIR

* modify init_pair() to allow caller to create extra color pairs beyond
the color_pairs limit, which use default colors (request by Emanuele Giaquinta).

* fix typo \"==\" where \"=\" is needed in and files (Debian #512161).

* add screen.Eterm terminfo entry (GenToo #124887) -TD

* add case for FreeMINT to configure macro CF_XOPEN_SOURCE (patch from
GenToo #250454).

* update \"konsole\" terminfo to 1.6.6, needs today\'s fix for tic -TD

* add \"aterm\" terminfo -TD

* add \"linux2.6.26\" terminfo -TD

* add logic to tic for cancelling strings in user-defined capabilities,
overlooked til now.

* add configure option --disable-tic-depends to make explicit whether
tic library depends on ncurses/ncursesw library, amends change from
20080823 (prompted by Debian #501421).

* add environment variable NCURSES_GPM_TERMS to allow override to use
GPM on terminals other than \"linux\", etc.

* disable GPM mouse support when $TERM does not happen to contain
\"linux\", since Gpm_Open() no longer limits its assertion to terminals
that it might handle, e.g., within \"screen\" in xterm.

* fix bug in mouse code for GPM from 20080920 changes (reported in
Debian #500103, also Miroslav Lichvar).

Debian #495815) -TD

* add configure option --enable-weak-symbols to turn on new feature.

* add configure-check for availability of weak symbols.

* modify linkage with pthread library to use weak symbols so that
applications not linked to that library will not use the mutexes,
etc. This relies on gcc, and may be platform-specific (patch by Dr Werner Fink).

using the --with-ticlib configure option (report by Dr Werner Fink).

* document (in manpage) why tputs does not detect I/O errors (prompted
