# Content
1 - moved libraries to the end when linking, which is actually correct,
2 as gcc-9 finally punishes this bug by default as it uses
3 -Wl,--as-needed by default (reorted by Axel Beckert).
4
5 1.3 Sun Jun 16 03:16:08 CEST 2019
6 - implemented -windowed option that creates its own desktop window.
7 - cleaned up source code somewhat.
8 - try to provide a more portable default font pattern.
9 - no longer warn about missing charsets, as libxt typically is rather
10 broken on todays utf-8 systems.
11 - provide Makefile, so xmkmf is no longer needed.
12 - remove the debian/ subdirectory, at best, it is in the way.
13
14 1.2 Fri Jul 30 21:31:42 CEST 2004
15 - replaced default font by "*" to "ensure" some font is found.
16 - accept hexadecimal window ids, as does everybody else(?).
17 - made it compile with ansi-89-based compilers again.
18 - add hack to support nautilus (not very stable, nautilus should
19 either use extended window manager hints or __SWM_VROOT, as everybody
20 else does).
21 - do not initialize the window twice (fixes problems with multiple
22 visuals).
23 - new option: -minspace.
24 - fixed seg fault if geometry is too short to fit a single line
25 - fix bug which became apparent if -no-filename or null
26 descriptions were used.
27
28 1.1 Thu Apr 8 21:59:35 CEST 2004
29 - make it work with virtual root windows (again).
30 - added options:
31 * -justify: gives a smooth right-hand margin
32 * -cont-color: allows the continuation marker to be a
33 different color than the logfile text
34 - changed the code around quite a lot - it no longer
35 continually deletes lines and re-adds them, and the main
36 structure is now a linked list rather than an array. the
37 continuation marker is added at display time, rather than
38 being in the strings of the datastructure.
39 - it is now possible to specify a different font for each
40 logfile; use the -fn option between filenames.
41 - fix very minor memleak.
42
43 1.0 Fri Apr 2 03:37:56 CEST 2004
44 - fix a bug regarding long (>1023 bytes) lines.
45 - c89 compatibility fixes by Seth W. Klein.
46 - fix a memleak.
47
48 0.95 Thu Apr 1 00:39:08 CEST 2004
49 - -geometry now expects _pixels_ not _characters_.
50 - sped up redraws considerably (depending on xserver).
51 - i18n: locale settings for multibyte characters are respected.
52 - proportional fonts are supported now.
53 - supports options as --long options now.
54 - force initial call to redraw().
55 - added options:
56 * -whole : to only display lines once they are \n terminated
57 * -partial: to display lines whether they are terminated or not
58 * -update: to attempt to complete old partial lines 'in-place'
59 * -cont: to specify a string to prefix 'broken' partial lines with
60 * -outline: black outline (relatively slow).
61 * -noflicker: slower but flickerfree update.
62 * -wordwrap: wrap at spaces to avoid breaking words
63 - document default interval of 2.4 seconds.
64 - set default 'reload' value to 0 to prevent reloads.
65 - updated man page.
66 - strict-aliasing fix suggested by mmj.
67 - improved regexp transform code, but not enough...
68 - --frame now draws the frame in exactly the right place, just
69 inside the window (previously a geometry of 1024x768+0+0 would
70 have its frame off-screen on my monitor)
71 - the code takes the --shade and --outline options into
72 account properly when wrapping, clearing text, etc. and so
73 no 'debris' pixels are left behind any more.
74
75 0.9 Wed Feb 25 15:25:49 CET 2004
76 - unsigned/fseek bug fix by (mmj@panther.mmj.dk).
77 - patch by Didier Verna <didier@lrde.epita.fr> (2004-01-07)
78 * root-tail.c (root_window): New function. Return the real
79 root window, or the virtual one if any.
80 (InitWindow): Use it.
81 (force_refresh): Clear the root-tail area, not the whole window.
82 (blank_window): Ditto.
83 (main_loop): Don't forget to redraw () the initial contents.
84
85 0.2 Wed Sep 4 17:20:57 CEST 2002
86 - applied patch by ami@fischman.org (tac).
87 - applied patch by raldi@verisignlabs.com (-noinitial fix).
88
89 0.1.1
90 - backported fixes from Marco d'Itri, who did most of the maintaining
91 work over the last year(s). Unfortunately, he doesn't answer my mails
92 (just as I did to most of root-tails users ;), so this is also the first
93 sourceforge release.
94 - convert tab characters to spaces
95 - fix -noinital bug

97 0.0.10
98 - initial lines are now displayed in the correct colour

120 - removed startup message.
121
