1 root 1.1 (this fork is maintained by Marc Lehmann <>)
3 root 1.3 2.5
4     - fix by Paul Fox to restore -S functionality that
5     was broken with 2.4.
7 root 1.1 2.4 Mon Nov 25 16:15:55 CET 2002
8     - much better i18n, slightly inefficient and probably
9 root 1.2 not perfect, but can be used to convert between a lot of apps
10     who have their own problems (mozilla, netscape, lyx, rxvt...)
11 root 1.1
12     2.32 Wed Mar 28 12:04:26 CEST 2001
13     - properties are now being initialized properly.
15     2.3i (branch maintained by Marc Lehmann <>)
16 root 1.4 - Forked version because the original maintainer was unreachable.
17 root 1.1 - Internal representation has now changed to utf-8 (XFree)
18     or locale-dependent multibyte (X).
19     - Font ressource is now .fontSet instead of .font.
20     - I/O is done using the current locale unless the -u (utf8)
21     switch is in effect.
23     Version 2.3 (patchlevel 3):
24     o Bug fix: XVIEW code was broken when pasting from xcb to
25     some XView applications (cmdtool, mailtool, ....)
26     o Added alternative Motif(tm) GUI for that special warm
27     3D look-and-feel that we all love.
29     Version 2.2 (patchlevel 2):
30     o Added -S task mode option for copying the current PRIMARY
31     selection into a cut buffer. Use this if you need to grab
32     a copy of the current PRIMARY selection.
33     o Added WM_NAME hints to each of the individual buffer windows.
34     This helps you to set the PRIMARY selection from a program
35     or shell script - send a <Btn1Down> event to one of the windows.
36     o Bug fix: needed to explicitly specify all form widget
37     attachments for the -h and -v layout schemes.
38     o Bug fix: multi-row example resources were wrong.
40     Version 2.1 (patchlevel 1):
41     o Added the WM_DELETE_WINDOW protocol.
42     o Bug fix: on some platforms (SunOS, ULTRIX and VMS) xcb could
43     not hand off the PRIMARY selection between its own windows,
44     so windows remained highlighted, and could not be re-selected.
45     o Bug fix: rotating the buffers when using fewer than 8 cut
46     buffer windows, either via mouse button 3 or via the arrow
47     keys, caused the program to dump core.
49     Version 2.0 (patchlevel 0):
50     o Went to an Xaw and Xt based implementation. Many pros and
51     cons to this decision. Some of the pros: standardized
52     support for Toolkit command line switches, support for
53     resource specifications .Xdefaults app-defaults files etc.,
54     control over individual subwindow sizes, placement,
55     translations etc. Some of the cons: program is noticeably
56     fatter and slower (Booo, hiss).
57     o User selectable number of cut buffers - any number from
58     1 upwards; no longer limited to 8.
59     o Added code for compatibility with XView 2.0 and 3.0 applications
60     (code provided Danny Vanderryn; thanks Danny!).
61     o Added XIO error handler for graceful shutdown when killed.
62     o Changed list processing for '-p' and '-s' options so that
63     list order and duplicates are significant.
65     Version 1.1 (patchlevel 1):
66     o Added WM_CLASS hints to the client properties. This fixed
67     failures by some window managers (e.g. mwm, olwm) to honour
68     client decoration directives.
69     o Removed 9x15bold default font specification (sigh, reluctantly).
70     o #include <stdlib.h> directive is now conditional upon __STDC__.
71     o Added another example to the man page.
72     o Several porting changes to Imakefile and Makefile.std
73     o Fallback geometry in vertical mode altered to give a tall, thin
74     window size.
75     o Support for non-standard implementations of realloc() added, i.e.
76     '-s' option never passes a NULL pointer value to realloc() now.
77     o Function declarations rewritten for compilation in both
78     ANSI and non-ANSI environments.
79     o usage() string concatenated.
80     o Warnings/complaints from some compilers re parameter type
81     mismatch in XChangeProperty() calls fixed.
83     Version 1.0:
84     o Initial version
