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