Changelog for makeinfo-6.5-6.10.i586.rpm :

* Tue Dec 11 2018 Dominique Leuenberger - Update perl-5.28-fixes.patch: Update locale handling for Perl 5.28. Perl 5.28 introduced thread-safe locales, where setlocale() only affects the locale of the current thread. External code like mbrtowc(3) isn\'t aware of this thread specific locale, so we need to explicitly modify the global one instead.
* Thu Nov 22 2018 Jan Engelhardt - Use noun phrase for summaries.
* Tue Oct 30 2018 Dr. Werner Fink - Add patch perl-5.28-fixes.patch to get build cehck working again due broken perl API with perl 5.28 and up (boo#1113945)
* Fri Apr 06 2018 install-info_exitcode.patch: install-info needs to return success when it does nothing. We need 0 return value even on failure as old packages in SLE-11 and SLE-12 can become uninstallable. (bsc#1084997)
* Fri Feb 23 2018 Use %license (boo#1082318)
* Fri Jan 26 2018 Do not require bash for package info (boo#1077744)
* Thu Jan 04 2018 Update to version 6.5:
* info: + some bugs fixed: a bug where a segfault could happen in the regex search, for example when the user entered a single \\ as the search string + another bug which could make nodes inaccessible in long \"split\" info files + a bug where it was not possible to follow a cross-reference that was split across more than one line has been fixed + do not fall back to a man page if following a cross-reference in an info file failed + if looking for a file failed, do not convert the name of a file to lower-case and look for it again
* texinfo.tex + some faulty definitions for Unicode characters have been changed or removed + fix indentation in table of contents for entries that are split across multiple lines
* texi2dvi + a bug that broke the processing of LaTeX files that did not use BibTeX has been fixed
* texi2any + output the encoding declaration of a HTML file earlier so it will always occur within first 1024 bytes of file + `INLINE_INSERTCOPYING\' removed as a customization variable
* Mon Oct 09 2017 Avoid also provide libtool() on texinfo specific perl linkage
* Sat Oct 07 2017 Drop require on perl(Locale::Messages) as long as we bundle perl-libintl-perl (the system one leaves tests failing)
* Sat Oct 07 2017 Do not provide perl() - the modules are not globally available (bsc#1062028)
* Wed Oct 04 2017 Change perl requires to be exactly the perl version makeinfo was built against. We ship a perl loadable module which is hard linked to the right version.
* Wed Jul 12 2017 Update to version 6.4:
* texi2any: + for HTML output, place section names before the manual in page titles, instead of after them, so it is easier to distinguish pages if titles are truncated + starting points for ordered lists beginning with 0 or a letter of the alphabet are output as attributes on the
    tag, as was case for Texinfo 4.13 and earlier + a bit faster + some discrepancies in paragraph formatting between Perl extension modules and interpreted Perl modules have been fixed + `MACRO_BODY_IGNORES_LEADING_SPACE\' customization variable removed, and `indent_menu_descriptions\' is no longer a possible value for `TREE_TRANSFORMATIONS\' (as these features did not work as documented)
    * info: + the `up-line\' and `down-line\' commands now are like the other scrolling commands and are no longer confined to a single node (depending on the value of `scroll-behaviour\') + supplying the --all option with --index-search displays a list of matching index entries + the style variables like `link-style\' can now be set while info is running + display bug fixed where color could be turned off prematurely + several other bugs fixed + better portability in test suite + do not fall back to showing the dir node if a manual isn\'t found + Do not attempt any kind of conversion of CR LF line endings, except on MS-DOS/Windows, when it is done unconditionally. (This replaces a more complicated approach, where this conversion would take place if there was a problem finding a node in a file.) The main effect of this change is that Info files with CR LF line endings, which would have been produced on MS-DOS/Windows with old versions of makeinfo, are only supported on such operating systems. + a few of the key bindings under --vi-keys have been changed for consistency or to match the documentation
    * texinfo.tex + a DVI file with a single empty page can be output again, which restores the behavior from Texinfo 6.0 and earlier- Small packaging clenup:
    * Drop conditions for old releases
    * Run spec-cleaner
    * Run testsuite
    * Fri Jan 20 2017 Update to version 6.3:
    * Language: + The commands `AATTsetcontentsaftertitlepage\' and `AATTsetshortcontentsaftertitlepage\' have been removed. + AATT-commands are no longer supported within `AATTerrormsg\'.
    * texinfo.tex: + For a couple of characters (opening and closing braces), use glyphs from the standard TeX math fonts instead of using EC fonts which are less likely to be installed. + Use of user-defined macros in the text of an index entry is more reliable when the text contains Texinfo AATT-commands. + AATTsynindex and AATTsyncodeindex have been fixed (broken in the last release). + Support added for native UTF-8 support with XeTeX and LuaTeX. + Support of PDF output with XeTeX improved. + You can use a new file doc/texinfo-ja.tex for Texinfo documents in Japanese. doc/short-sample-ja.tex is a sample document. New support file doc/txi-ja.tex for Japanese. + texi2any: + Fix handling of compiler options when building Perl extension modules.
    * texi2dvi: + Can now process files whose absolute paths contain space characters, as long a relative path to the file is given. Better support of files with unusual characters in their names. + No longer exits prematurely in some circumstances (due to the script running under \"set -e\"). + Bug fixed which made the `--command\' and `--tidy\' options incompatible.
    * info: + Handling of \"invalid\" value in infokey file fixed.
    * Sun Jul 24 2016 Remove libpth-devel; texinfo doesn\'t depend on it
    * Fri Jul 15 2016 Update to 6.1
    * Language: . You can now omit the AATTmenu from nodes with other nodes below them in the document structure. If you use \"AATTvalidatemenus off\" near the start of a Texinfo file, makeinfo will, where needed, create a menu for nodes lacking one given explicitly. . An AATTsetfilename line is no longer required at the start of a Texinfo file. (Be aware, though, that some other tools may require it, for example Automake.) . For processing with TeX, a comma is automatically provided following a cross-reference command (such as AATTxref) when needed to separate the page number from following text, so you don\'t need to add one yourself. See the `Parts of a Cross Reference\' node in the manual for details. Behavior when followed by punctuation, as always recommended previously, is unchanged.
    * texi2any: . Some Perl modules have been rewritten in C to increase speed. If Perl extensions can be created, they are used by default; otherwise the pure Perl implementations are still used. Disable at build time with \"configure --disable-perl-xs\". The environment variable TEXINFO_XS controls how they are used by texi2any. . Quotation marks are left out for node names and index entries in Info output where they would have been produced by commands such as AATTfile or AATToption. . New customization variable INFO_SPECIAL_CHARS_QUOTE to allow use of a quoting mechanism for problematic constructs in Info output, for example node names containing colons or commas. . Commands like AATTheading are affected by AATTlowersections and AATTraisesections again, as was the case before Texinfo 5.0.
    * texinfo.tex: . You may explicitly specify a sort key for an index entry by preceding the text of the entry with the AATTsortas commmand with the sort key desired as a braced argument. Additionally, you may choose to ignore all occurences of the characters \\, AATT, <, and - using new flags you can specify with AATTset: `txiindexbackslashignore\', `txiindexatsignignore\', `txiindexlessthanignore\', and `txiindexhyphenignore\' respectively. . Changes to macro handling to more closely match makeinfo. Ends of lines are preserved in an argument to a macro taking a single argument. . By default, suppress heading line on a page with a chapter on it, to avoid having the chapter title repeated. . Use a larger font for arguments in a AATTdeffn line and similar. . The default indices (cp, ky and so on) now don\'t get a file opened for them unless they are actually used. This reduces the number of files that a run of TeX produces, and also allows for a greater number of user-defined indices, because you will not bump into TeX\'s limit of 16 open files at once so soon. . For initials in indices that are non-alphanumeric characters (for example, backslash, or braces), avoid use of a typewriter font. This gives a more consistent appearance. . Have a stronger preference for breaking a column in an index before a letter heading. . Formatting improvements in tables of contents and indices. Entries can extend slightly into the margin instead of being broken across two lines, and text is split more evenly across lines. Reduce chance of an orphaned index entry appearing at the top of a column. . Support character encodings beyond ASCII for XeTeX and LuaTeX by reading file input byte-by-byte.
    * texi2dvi: . Support for determining the output files using the `-recorder\' option to TeX, to help to support more TeX engines.
    * info: . New user variables `link-style\', `active-link-style\', and `match-style\' enable customization of how cross-references and search matches are highlighted. . By default only the node pointers are displayed at the top of a node. Customize this with the `nodeline\' variable. . New command M-x tree-search to search all subnodes of a node. . Now tries to find referenced manuals in the same directory as the current file first, before looking in search path. Customize this with new variable `follow-strategy\'. . The `mouse\' variable is now off by default, in order not to interfere with the selection of text in a terminal emulator window. . `q\' closes a window instead of quitting altogether if there\'s more than one, for example if a help window is open. . Several bug fixes, including: . one causing the wrong position in a node to be shown when following an \"anchor\" cross-reference . one causing a test failure in the t/ test on some platforms . Internal changes to reduce memory use and increase speed of searches, relative to last release . The meaning of the `key-time\' variable has changed when its value is 0. This value meant to wait forever in the last release, but now it means that the next byte must be available immediately.
    * Documentation: . The `\' file (and `info.texi\' source) is no longer distributed with Texinfo. Now this manual is only in Emacs.
    * Thu Oct 15 2015 Package that is revert the previous drop from Mon May 6 16:05:29 UTC 2013
    * Wed Jul 15 2015 The package texinfo now requires makeinfo of the same version to make sure that the correct is installed- libzio is able to handle lz(ma) and xz files as well
    * Sat Jul 11 2015 Update to 6.0
    * Language: + new commands AATTsub and AATTsup, for textual subscripts and superscripts. + new command AATTU to insert a Unicode character by code point.
    * texinfo.tex: + AATTurl/AATTuref output in PDF now the same as in DVI, showing the url even if the second argument is given, not just as a link target. TeX option \\urefurlonlylinktrue gives previous behavior, of invisible urls. + PDF-only \\linkcolor and \\urlcolor specify colors (default black).
    * texi2any: + customization variable TOP_NODE_UP_URL now replaces all (dir) references; recommended setting for GNU packages is /manual/. + new customization variable INDEX_SPECIAL_CHARS_WARNING to complain when index entries contain a colon. + Docbook output no longer uses for AATTr. + -D\'var val\' on the command line works as intended again. + --plaintext output can be split. + a bit faster.
    * info: + invoking as `info foo bar\' looks for bar as an index entry in manual foo, if not found as a top-level menu item. + invoking info with an absolute or explicitly relative file name (./, /tmp/, etc.) just visits that file. + separate `infokey\' program has been removed - the .infokey file is now read directly by Info. + new option --init-file allows overriding ~/.infokey. + new variable `highlight-searches\' allows highlighting results from a search + support for mouse scrollwheel, controlled by `mouse\' variable. + new variable `key_time\' to control how long to wait for byte sequences sent by special keys. + new variable `hide-note-references\' alters appearance of displayed nodes + new variable `infopath-no-defaults\' allows omitting the compile-time Info directory from the Info search path. + support input of multibyte characters for searches in a UTF-8 locale. + if reading an Info file that is known to be in a different character encoding to that of the user\'s environment, convert its contents when displayed and substitute missing characters + new command M-x info-version. + the M-x kill-node command has been removed. + test suite at build time.
    * texindex: + completely new implementation as a literate program using Texinfo and (portable) awk (called TexiWeb Jr.). + the -o (--output) is not supported, unless we hear of someone using it. + duplicated sort keys with different display texts result in one merged index entry, using the first display text. + better sorting and parsing in unusual cases; most notably, { and } characters can appear as initials.
    * install-info: + handle compressed input file names containing spaces. + exit successfully if --remove is given and the dir file does not exist. + new option --defsection, to be used instead of \"Miscellaneous\" when a section is not present in the Info file.
    * texi2dvi: + look for the environment variable THUMBPDF_CMD instead of THUMBPDF, since thumbpdf itself has used THUMBPDF for options since 2000. + remove --recode and --recode-from options, since they haven\'t worked as intended for years, so evidently no one needs them.- refresh texinfo-zlib.patch
    * Sat May 16 2015 Remove wrong uses of %install_info
    * Fri Apr 24 2015 Add pre requires for install_info for scriptlets
    * Sat Mar 28 2015 Add gpg signature
    * Fri Feb 06 2015 Add perl(Locale::Messages) and perl(Text::Unidecode) Requires to makeinfo: since the switch to using the external ones, we also must ensure to have them present for the user to execute makeinfo. And makeinfo can be installed without texinfo (which already does require those modules too).
    * Fri Feb 06 2015 Avoid including builtin perl-libintl-perl but require the package- The same for perl-Text-Unidecode- Move %install_info_delete from %postun to %preun
    * Fri Feb 06 2015 Recommend instead of Require texi2html and texi2roff: they are not stricly required to operate texinfo, but can be valuable to the users installing it.
    * Thu Feb 05 2015 Completely splitt off texi2html and texi2roff into their own package containers. As a consequence, we no longer carry those files / patches here (they live in their respective other packages): texi2html-1.78.dif, texi2html-5.0.tar.bz2, texi2html-5584.patch, texi2html.changes, texi2html.spec, texi2roff-2.0-gcc4.patch, texi2roff-2.0.dif, texi2roff-2.0.tar.gz, texi2roff.changes, texi2roff.patch.gz and texi2roff.spec.
