1 (this fork is maintained by Marc Lehmann <>)
3 2.5
4 - fix by Paul Fox to restore -S functionality that
5 was broken with 2.4.
7 2.4 Mon Nov 25 16:15:55 CET 2002
8 - much better i18n, slightly inefficient and probably
9 not perfect, but can be used to convert between a lot of apps
10 who have their own problems (mozilla, netscape, lyx, rxvt...)
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 - Forked version because the original maintainer was unreachable.
17 - 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
