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