Tue Jun 3 14:00:00 2014
- GNU gettext 0.19:
- Programming languages support:

* Desktop Entry:
xgettext and msgfmt now support .desktop files, used by
desktop applications, as input and output.

* GSettings:
xgettext now supports GSettings schema file format used by
GNOME applications.

* JavaScript:
xgettext now recognizes E4X (ECMA-357) constructs.

* PHP:
Single and double quotes around heredoc markers are now

* Python:
The acceptable format specifiers in the braced-syntax format
strings is now limited to the Standard Format Specifiers, to
reasonably avoid false-positives.

* Scheme:
The gettext shorthand form _\"abc\", used by GIMP script-fu, is
now recognized by xgettext.

* C and Vala:
xgettext now recognizes C99-style Unicode character escapes.
- The --add-location option of msgattrib, msgcat, msgcomm,
msgconv, msgen, msgfilter, msggrep, msgmerge, msguniq, and
xgettext commands now takes an optional argument \'never\',
\'full\', or \'file\', to control the format of \"#: ...\" comments.
- msgfmt now has --source option to keep generated .java file
when running in Java mode.
- msgattrib now has --empty option that sets msgstr to empty when
clearing fuzzy flag.

* msgexec and msgfilter pass the plural information to subprocess
through the environment variable MSG{EXEC,FILTER}_MSGID_PLURAL

* New built-in filters \'quot\' and \'boldquot\' have been added to
msgfilter. These filters convert Latin quotation marks (\'...\',
\"...\") into Unicode quotation marks (for example, U+2018) if
possible, similar to the sed commands used in po/Rules-quot and

* The po/Makevars file has a couple of new options
used to adjust the behavior of updating PO files on demand.

* xgettext now strips prefixed string before the comment tag.
This is useful to support C-style comment like this:

* TRANSLATORS: first line

* second line

* /

* In this example, the extracted comment does not contain \"
* \" at
the beginning of each line.

* libgettextpo library:
- Memory leak fixes in the PO file parser.

* Documentation:
- A complete example showing the use of GNU gettext in a
GNOME 3 application has been added

Sun Jan 12 13:00:00 2014
- GNU gettext

* Add missing extern-inline.m4 into archive.
- verify source signature

Tue Dec 24 13:00:00 2013
- avoid testing gnulib copies - we\'re not interested in bugs in gnulib
as we don\'t use it

Sun Oct 20 14:00:00 2013
- Split extra documentation in /usr/share/doc into separate
- Substitute %_prefix/share => %_datadir and
%_defaultdocdir/%name => %_docdir

Wed Oct 2 14:00:00 2013
- Version including a hotfix for autopoint
not copying intl library if asked to (fixes build failures in 13.1)

Mon Aug 12 14:00:00 2013
- Version 0.18.3 - July 2013

* Runtime behaviour:
On Mac OS X systems, the setlocale() function now properly
invalidates loaded message catalogs when a locale has been set.

* Programming languages support:
- C++:
The gnu::autosprintf class now provides an assignment
- Glade:
xgettext now supports GtkBuider file format used by Glade 3.
xgettext now also extracts contexts (msgctxt) from Glade 2
and GtkBuider files.
- JavaScript:
xgettext now partially supports JavaScript. Since the
current JavaScript specification (ECMA-262) does not define
the standard set of formatting methods nor translation
functions, the implementation supports only a limited
set of formatting methods and translation functions commonly
used in Gjs and other popular JavaScript implemenations and
- Lua:
xgettext now supports Lua, using Ľubomír Remák\'s lua-gettext.
- Python:
xgettext and msgfmt\'s format string checking now recognize
Python format string in braced syntax (PEP 3101). xgettext
now also supports explicit string concatenation with \'+\' and
handles platform dependent line terminators (LF/CR/CRLF)
- Tcl:
Bug fix in xgettext Unicode escape handling.
- Vala:
xgettext now supports Vala.

* msgattrib now has --previous option to keep previous msgid when
making messages fuzzy, similar to msgmerge --previous.

* msgfmt now checks PO file headers more strictly with less

* \'gettextize\' now checks macro directories specified with

* Portability:
- msginit now does not require GNU sed.
- The Makefile rule for generating enAATTquot and enAATTboldquot now
uses AATTSEDAATT variable instead of hard-coded \'sed\' command to
allow users to supply GNU sed.

* Future backward-incompatibilities:
- In future Gettext versions, the files installed by
\'gettextize\' will require Automake 1.10 or later. This will
improve the compatibility of user projects with newer
Automake versions.
- Remove upstreamed patches:

Tue Jun 25 14:00:00 2013
- add gettext-fix-tcl-u-escape-sequences.patch in order to fix
the handling of Tcl \\u escape sequences (bnc#826422)

+ libgettextpo library:

* The initial msgstr of a new message is now \"\", not NULL.

* Bug fixes in the functions po_message_is_range,
po_file_check_all, po_message_check_all.
+ Installation options:
The configure options --with-xz and --with-bzip2 can be used to
specify alternate compression methods for the archive used by
the \'autopoint\' program. These options, together with
- -with-git, allow to trade dependencies against installed
package size. --with-xz has the highest compression rate,
followed by --with-git, followed by --with-bzip2.
+ Autoconf macros:

* The autoconf macros installed by \'gettextize\' now work with
the forthcoming Automake 1.14 and require Autoconf version
2.60 or newer.
+ Portability:

* Building on MacOS X 10.7, Cygwin 1.7.10, and newer 64-bit
mingw is now supported.
- Remove obsolete patches:
+ gettext-codecleanup.patch

Tue Dec 21 13:00:00 2010
- Update to 0.18.1. Changes since 0.17:
Version 0.18.1 - June 2010

* msggrep: A \'$\' anchor in a regular expression now also matches
the end of the string, even if it does not end in a newline.

* Dependencies:
The libraries and programs are now linked with libunistring if
this library is already installed.

* Installation options:
The configure option --with-cvs is deprecated. The \'autopoint\'
program will now use the \'git\' program by default to compress its
archive. If the configure option --without-git is specified,
\'autopoint\' will not rely on \'git\', but will instead rely on a
locally installed 3 MB large archive.
Version 0.18 - May 2010

* PO file format:
There is a new field \'Language\' in the header entry. It denotes
the language code (plus optional country code) for the PO file.
This field can be used by automated tools, such as spell
checkers. It is expected to be more reliable than looking at the
file name or at the \'Language-Team\' field in the header entry.
msgmerge, msgcat, msgen have a new option --lang that allows to
specify this field. Additionally, msgmerge fills in this new
field by looking at the \'Language-Team\' field (if the --lang
option is not given).

* xgettext and PO file format:
For messages with plural forms, programmers can inform the
translators about the range of possible values of the numeric
argument, like this:
* xgettext: range: 0..15
This information \'range: 0..15\' is stored in the PO file as a
flag attached to the message. Translators can produce better
translations when they know that the numeric argument is small.

* Colorized PO files:
msgattrib, msgcomm, msgconv, msgen, msgfilter, msggrep, msginit,
msgmerge, msgunfmt, msguniq, xgettext now have options --color
and --style, like msgcat has since version 0.17.

* msgmerge is up to 10 times faster when the PO and POT files are
large. This speedup was contributed by Ralf Wildenhues.

* msgcmp has a new option -N/--no-fuzzy-matching, like msgmerge has
since version 0.12.

* msgfilter now sets environment variables during the invocation of
the filter, indicating the msgid and location of the messge being

* xgettext now can extract plural forms from Qt 4 programs. The
recommended xgettext command-line options for this case are:
- -qt --keyword=tr:1,1t --keyword=tr:1,2c,2t --keyword=tr:1,1,2c,3t

* xgettext --language=GCC-source now recognizes also the format
strings used in the Fortran front-end of the GCC compiler, and
marks them as \'gfc-internal-format\'.

* autopoint can now be used to update several PO directories all

* PO mode changes:
- PO files with plural entries are now correctly handled.
- Editing a message with previous msgid (in comments) removes these
comments. Contributed by Noritada Kobayashi.

* The po/Makevars file has a new field MSGMERGE_OPTIONS, that can
be used to adjust msgmerge\'s operation.

* The use of the macro AM_GNU_GETTEXT without \'external\' argument
and the --intl option of the gettextize program are deprecated
and will be removed in the next release. Instead of including
the intl sources in your package, we suggest making the libintl
library an (optional) prerequisite of your package.

* Updated the meaning of \'gcc-internal-format\' to match GCC 4.3.

* Installation options:
The configure options --without-cvs and --with-git can be used to
specify whether \'autopoint\' will use the \'cvs\' program, or the
\'git\' program, or none at all. These options allow to trade
dependencies against installed package size: If --without-cvs is
specified and --with-git is not specified, \'autopoint\' will not
rely on \'cvs\' or \'git\', but will instead rely on a locally
installed a 3 MB large archive.

* Portability: The msgfilter program now also works on native Woe32
- platforms. Compiled C# message catalogs now also work with
- \'mono\' versions from 2009
or newer.

Thu Nov 15 13:00:00 2007
- Rename packages: gettext -> gettext-runtime and
gettext-devel -> gettext->tools
Packaging closely follows uptream recommendation with a few
- Initialize variable to shut up gcc.
- Disable msgmerge-compendium-5 for now.
- Update to 0.17:

* License:
The gettext related programs and tools are now licensed under the GPL
version 3, instead of the GPL version 2.

* PO file format:
The Project-Id-Version field in the header entry may now already be filled
in the POT file. In this case, the translators don\'t need to fill it in.
xgettext has new options --package-name and --package-version that allow
to specify the package name and version from a Makefile.

* Colorized PO files:
The msgcat program has new options --color and --style that produce a
colorized PO file output, where keywords, strings, comments, or format
directives can be highlighted. See the documentation section
\"Highlighting parts of PO files\" for more info.

* gettextize now has a --po-dir option that allows several PO directories to
be updated all together.

* Programming languages support:
- Contexts (msgctxt) are now also supported for Java and C#.
- C# with Qt: The support for Qt format strings has been updated for Qt 4.
- C++ with KDE:
xgettext has a new option --kde that triggers the recognition and marking
of KDE 4 format strings.

* Autoconf macros:
- A new macro AM_XGETTEXT_OPTION can be used as an alternative to modifying

* libgettextpo library:
- New functions are available for querying the list of supported format
- The functions po_message_comments and po_message_extracted_comments
return a multiline string where each line no longer starts with a
redundant space. The leading space in every comment line is now stripped
while reading the PO file.
- Conversely, when you pass a multiline string to the function
po_message_set_comments or po_message_set_extracted_comments, you normally
don\'t pass a space at the beginning of each line, because such spaces are
no longer trimmed during output.

* Documentation:
- The \"Users\" chapter has been completely rewritten.
- New section \"Highlighting parts of PO files\".
- A complete example showing the use of GNU gettext in Java with the Qt/Jambi
GUI toolkit has been added.

Wed Jul 26 14:00:00 2006
- Version 0.15:

* Enhance PO file format. Messages constrained to a certain context
are possible. The syntax is:
msgctxt \"context\"
msgid \"original\"
msgstr \"translation\"
The xgettext program can be told through the --keyword flag which
function/macro argument has the role of a context. It also supports
the GNOME glib convention to specify the context and original string
in the same string literal: \"context|original\".
The (non-public) include file gettext.h defines macros pgettext, dpgettext
etc. that take a context argument.
For more information, see the node \"Contexts\" in the manual.

* msgfmt\'s format string checking is now stricter in the presence of plural

* Enhancements to msggrep, xgettext, msgmerge (much faster now!).

* New program recode-sr-latin, that converts Serbian text from
the Cyrillic script to the Latin script.

* Programming languages support:
- C++ with Boost:
- Python: xgettext now recognizes the source encoding from a
\"coding:\" comment among the first two lines. The default encoding
is now ASCII, no longer ISO-8859-1.

* libgettextpo library: Incompatible change with the error handler
type passed to functions.
- Remove strict aliasing patch which seems to be obsolete because of
code changes.
- Require expat, but still no-op?
