* modify HTDoConnect(), adding a check for keyboard interrupt with 'z' in the
  select-loop -TD
* modify legacy feature from Lynx 2.7.2 which checks the hostname of a URI

  attempt to create a temp-directory -TD
* modify samples/*lynx.bat to set PATH for executing utility programs -TD
* remove unused critSec_DNS -TD
* use EnterCriticalSection in ws_netread rather than InitializeCriticalSection
  since critSec_READ was initialized in LYMain.c (report by GV) -TD

* implement "+" item type for gopher protocol (report by James Tomasino) -TD
* add checks in options-menu in case no color-styles have been defined -TD
* add Visual Studio project files for 2010, 2012 -TD
* improve checks for strings which should not be empty -TD

  pdcurses -TD
* rename test-package for ".rpm" to "lynx-dev" for consistency with ".deb" -TD
* improve samples/lynx.bat by using location of script rather than current
  directory ("Smuggler")

* permanently enable MISC_EXP feature -TD
* remove several obsolete ifdefs: DGUX, DGUX_OLD, HP_TERMINAL,

  Bell) -TD
* add PREFERRED_CONTENT_TYPE defaulting to text/plain and options-menu to
  replace an assumption in HTMIMEConvert that everything is text/html.
  Since most servers provide a valid Content-Type for HTML, and are more likely
  to omit it for files lacking a known suffix, defaulting to text/plain is a
  better choice -TD
* remove dead-code for OMIT_SCN_KEEPING -TD
* remove dead/unreachable pretty-source code in HTML.c, noticed because
  it complicates hashing -TD
* improve hashing for anchors and styles by using a more suitable hash-table
  size -TD
* add a note in lynx.cfg telling how to remove a default key-mapping -TD
* modify "=" command to make it possible to disable margins for the URL string,
  by first disabling wrapping using "|" -TD

  to avoid problem with "make -j8" (Debian #890811) -TD
112 113 114
* update makefile/batch-scripts to allow building with newer Visual Studio
  versions, e.g., 2010, 2012, so that a 64-bit executable can be built -TD
* repair link in lynx_help_main.html to HTML 3.2 documentation

  clients support it -TD
* fix several minor warnings reported by Coverity -TD
* remove redundant asserts which follow a check that leads to outofmem(),
  added in 2.8.8dev.4 to appease clang 2.6, since clang 3.x understands
  no-return function declarations -TD

2016-11-08 (2.8.9dev.10)
* improved fix for OpenSSL 1.1 (Taketo Kabe).
* improve warning message when stripping user/password from URL; report on treated as a Lynx parsing error the
  punctuation such as "?" which is permitted by RFC-1738 in a user or password
  field.  RFC-3986 subsequently modified this.  The improved message points out
  the possible confusion by users when these fields contain punctuation -TD

* modify samples/oldlynx to provide an empty ".lss" file as a better default
  than providing an empty "-lss" option -TD
* amend change made in 2.8.8dev.17 to permit multiple COLOR_STYLE items to
  restore the ability to cancel the color-style by providing an explicitly
  empty configuration item (in lynx.cfg, -lss or $LYNX_LSS).  In lynx.cfg, it
  is possible to follow the empty COLOR_STYLE with other data, but the -lss
  option overrides everything, and if that is not found, $LYNX_LSS overrides
  lynx.cfg -TD
* correct ifdef so that if the "news" parsing is disabled at compile time,

  in 2.8.9dev.2, and also filter out right-to-left marks (Debian #808949) -TD
* fix build for current gnutls configuration which dropped the
  gnutls_protocol_set_priority function (reported by Axel Beckert, Andreas
  Metzler) -TD
* modify CF_LD_RPATH_OPT configure macro, changing FreeBSD case to use
  -Wl,-rpath rather than -rpath option.  According to FreeBSD #178732, either
  works since FreeBSD 4.x; however scons does not accept anything except the
  -Wl,-rpath form -TD

* make the HTTP version configurable, defaulting to "1.0" (HTTP/1.0) as
  HTTP_PROTOCOL, and make it changeable in the options menu -TD

  the pitfall of persistent connections.  This is to work around a selective
  reading of RFC 2068 by - see
  -Axel Beckert

* add script after using msginit to create en.po, to work around renaming in
  Cygwin environment -TD
* improve overlay of field contents in form for "-dump" option; the change

  + CF_ACVERSION_CHECK:  work around another gratuitous incompatibility
    introduced in 2.69 (reported by Ross Burton,
  + CF_ADD_CFLAGS:  workaround for ash-shell
  + CF_ADD_LIBS:  workaround in CF_X_TOOLKIT uses pkgconfig, whose files
    generally are using incomplete dependencies - in turn introducing lots of
    duplication.  filter out the duplicates.
  + CF_CHECK_CFLAGS:  workaround for ash-shell
  + CF_CURSES_FUNCS:  improve workaround for weak-linkage, seems to fix tests
    with NetBSD 6.1
  + CF_INTEL_COMPILER:  cleanup the -no-gcc option which was leftover from
    testing - prcs does not build with this option.
  + CF_MAKEFLAGS:  workaround for GNU make 4.0 incompatibility with previous
  + CF_SUBDIR_PATH:  add /usr/pkg and /opt/local to help configuring with
    pkgsrc and macports -TD
  + CF_XOPEN_SOURCE:  Minix3.2 ifdef's the POSIX.1-2001 functions inside
    _NETBSD_SOURCE, even though it was released 2012-02-29 - appease it.  At
    the same time, turn on the verbose flag to show that most platforms need
    platform-specific define's to get POSIX (sic).  Also, add case for UnixWare
    (report/discussion with Mark Ryan).
  + CF_X_ATHENA:  add --with-Xaw3dxft option
  + CF_X_TOOLKIT:  add workaround for breakage in XQuartz upgrades

* trim unexpected query-parameters from file: URIs when checking for their
  presentation and compression types.  Not all browsers do this, etc. -TD

  - fix makefile races [espie]
  - read/write result checking fixes to avoid unsigned comparisons vs -1 [krw]
  However, the former is not an improvement; kept only the latter -TD

  the form to be submitted (Debian #603648) -TD
* add bzlib to win32 makefile.msc -TD
* define WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN in makefile.msc to accommodate naming conflict

  LYTildeExpand to lookup given user's home directory, thereby making commands
  such as "g ~root/tmp" work as expected -TD
* replaced most LYgetStr calls with LYgetBString, except for LYMail.c and
  LYNews.c since those do use LYgetStr's limits as it was designed.  Other
  calls generally did not need those limits -TD
* modify finish_ExtEditForm to eliminate wrapping when an edited line is longer

  displayed size of a TEXTAREA, but if declined, the TEXTAREA's content will
  not be wrapped -TD
* modify LYgetstr, making it call revised function LYgetBString which handles
  bstring's, and allows editing fields which can grow without fixed buffer
  limits.  In particular, forms all use the same calls, which means that

   Path   Defaults to the path of the request URL that generated the

  In that context, lynx was correct to extract the default "path" attribute
  rather than
  as asserted in the report.  However, lynx warned unnecessarily (according to
  the bug report) about the given path attribute.  Deciding whether to suppress
  this warning is under control of the user via the lynx.cfg setting

  option of ncurses (Debian #476394) -TD
  Caveat:  if running on a local terminal, setting the ESCDELAY environment
  variable to 0 (zero) helps, since the event rate is rather high.  That would
  not help on a network with delays (this is true of all text applications that

* improve X.509 certificate validation -TG
  This is tested for OpenSSL, ifdef'd to not break gnutls.  Changes:
  + peer certificate is cached, no need to call SSL_get_peer_certificate()
  + support foo.domain:port and [] and []:port and
    [i:p:v:6:ad:dr:es:s] and [i:p:v:6:ad:dr:es:s]:port
  + add support for checking X.509v3 SubjectAltName extensions (of type DNS -
    tested - and IP - untested) when the X.509 commonName check fails.
  + when displaying a list of failed CNs, change format from foo:bar:baz to
    CN<foo>:CN<bar>:CN<baz>:SAN<DNS=foo>:SAN<IP=> so that we know where
    what comes from (in "Your recent statusline messages")
  + if the peer certificate can *NOT* be verified, output a message to the log
    as well
  + fix a possible use of an uninitialised value ssl_all_cns
  + output certificate issuer to the logs as well (so that you can, before
    entering your online banking PIN, see if the certificate has been issued
    not only _to_ your bank but also _from_ a place you trust, in case
    /etc/ssl/certs/ contains a lot of Root CA certs)

  twice rather also to HTML_H5 (report by -TD
* improve change for UCSetBoxChars() from 2.8.6dev.16 for
  EXP_CHARTRANS_AUTOSWITCH which assumed that the line-drawing character set

* replace BROKEN_PROFTPD and BROKEN_WU_FTPD logic with configurable list of
  strings in lynx.cfg, i.e., BROKEN_FTP_RETR and BROKEN_FTP_EPSV, and add

  options, warn about the ignored input data in that case (prompted by report
  by Toralf Foerster) -TD

  user's home directory only if it follows a pathname separator (Debian
  #388622) -TD
* ensure that PERSONAL_EXTENSION_MAP and PERSONAL_MAILCAP are absolute
  pathnames, performing tilde expansion as needed.  Pathnames that are not

2006-09-03 (2.8.6pre.2)
* change configure script to put the ".cfg" and ".lss" files by default in the
  --sysconfdir, e.g., $prefix/etc, and the help-files in lynx_doc and lynx_help
  directories under --datadir, e.g., $prefix/share/lynx_doc,
  $prefix/share/lynx_doc.  To obtain the old behavior, use

  William McBrine) -TD
* corrected placement of statements used for quiet compiler warnings for unused

  a problem with wrapping of multibyte character links -TD
* repair fix for Debian #171312 by ensuring that it is only invoked if the
1786 1787
  document was not being reloaded, or popped off the history stack.  See logic
  for popped_doc vs LYSetNewline() in LYMainLoop.c (report by TH) -TD
1788 1789 1790 1791 1792 1793 1794 1795

  (prompted by discussion by OpenMacNews and Thorsten Glaser) -TD
* add a carriage-return in stop_curses() to work around PDCurses leaving the
  cursor position other places than lower-level when stopping curses (report
  by DK) -TD
* add an explicit wmove() in display_line() to accommodate some wide-character
  pages which are not handled well by the nested-table logic, resulting in
  unexpected wrapping (report by Dan Jacobson) -TD
* modify limit for CJK double-byte characters in display_line() to accommodate
1797 1798 1799 1800 1801 1802 1803 1804 1805 1806 1807 1808 1809 1810 1811 1812 1813 1814

  NLS configuration -DK
* modify autoconf macro AM_PATH_PROG_WITH_TEST to account for executable suffix
  in win32 environment -DK
* correct a mistyped parameter to CreateThread() (report by DK) -TD
* do not use LIBOBJS symbol directly in configure script except to support
  AC_REPLACE_FUNCS, since the autoconf macros dealing with that symbol changed
  incompatibly in autoconf 2.54 (report by DK) -TD
* fixes to work with BeOS 5.0 -Nigel Horne
* use portable TXT_R rather than "rt" for popen() mode in clip_grab() (reported
  by Antonio Maria Borneo) -TD
* modify makeutcb.c to avoid compile-time dependency upon gettext, in case it
  is used in cross-compiling -TD
* modify expression for ws_read_per_sec in ws_netread() to avoid potential
  divide-by-zero on a network error

  (prompted by request by Jason Spiro) -TD
* add COLOR_STYLE setting to lynx.cfg -TD
* change default initialization of color-style code when no lss file is given
  to simulate the non-color-style code.  There are some visual differences,
  e.g., links that contain a mixture of styles will display with mixed colors,
  but overall the visual effect matches the non-color-style code well enough
  to change the default configuration.
  If an empty string is given for the lss filename, this is treated as an
  empty style file, and lynx will not use its built-in default color style.
  To make the behavior easier to diagnose, lynx will now exit with an error
  if it cannot find the lss file.  cf: 2000-07-16 (2.8.4dev.5) -TD
* fix a sign-extension in alignment case-statement in split_line() which could
  cause a large indent for lines which are wider than the display (Debian

    which is used in Win32 environment (includes Cygwin).
* fix some printf formats -Thorsten Glaser

  case packager has stripped executable permissions from scripts, e.g., by
  using CVS (report by Atsuhito Kohda) -TD

  a HEAD on a link failed because there was no submit action associated with
  the link (report by Walter Ian Kaye, SC) -TD

* adjust anchor extent to discount trailing blank which is trimmed when
  rendering.  If the blank is not trimmed, link highlighting in color-style
  will show a spurious character (report by Karl-Heinz Weirich) -TD

2005-12-18 (2.8.6dev.16)
* change configure option default for --enable-justify-elts to true -TD
* change default for JUSTIFY to "false" (suggested by Bela Lubkin) -TD
* update config.guess (2005-11-11) and config.sub (2005-11-13)
* print the contents of image maps, if any, at the end of a dump (Debian
  #335593) -TD
* fix off-by-one line calculation that allowed the last page to be blank
  (Debian #330413) -TD
* modify statusline() to retain one trailing blank if the given string has a
  trailing blank.  This makes prompts easier to read (report by Karl-Heinz
  Weirich) -TD
* modify pipe read in LYGetHostByName() to retry until either the pipe closes
  or the struct passed back from the child process completes.  This is needed
  for OS/2 EMX (report by Karl-Heinz Weirich) -TD
* strip unneeded "&nbsp;" from translation when building info page using
  wide curses (Debian #342877) -TD
* add scripts/, which can be used to generate test pages for the
  charsets from src/chrtrans/*.tbl -TD
* add ISO-8859-13 and ISO-8859-14 chrtrans tables, revise ISO-8859-10
  based on
  Change display name for ISO-8859-10 to indicate the region -TD
* add codepage 857 (DOSTurkish), since console-tools package provides a
  suitable font -TD
* improve UCSetBoxChars(), checking if the current character set does not
  match the character set inferred from the locale.  This reduces the number
  of cases where line-drawing in the options menu does not work -TD
* rename test/iso8859-1.html and test/iso88592.html to test/iso-8859-1.html
  and test/isoi-8859-2.html, corresponding to the proper MIME names to
  simplify test-scripts -TD
* update Linux console font support to use console-tools package (tested on
  Debian).  The configure script checks for consolechars and setfont programs
  (must find at least one).  The corresponding SETFONT_PATH can be set in
  lynx.cfg to provide a choice between the two -TD
* strip special characters such as '%' from parameters passed to external
  programs for EXTERNAL mechanism on Windows platform.  This is ifdef'd
  with WIN_EX (Hataguchi Takeshi).

* modify definition of addch_raw() to allow scrollbar to work with slang2
  (this only works on the Windows platform) -GV
* modify LYSysShell() to use $COMSPEC if $SHELL is not defined -GV
* workaround for codepage support on OS/2 by changing the effect of unctrl().
  Add/use new preferred function use_legacy_coding() to ncurses which provides
  the same effect with the wide-character ncursesw (report by Karl-Heinz
  Weirich) -TD
* fixes for de.po (Debian #313789, patch by Jens Seidel).
* add a null pointer check for HTCurSelectedOptionValue in HText_setLastOptionValue()
  to improve handling of this fragment:

* add a null pointer check in HTML_TAB case of HTML_start_element() to handle
  this fragment:
  (Alexey Dobriyan).
* remove pointer to

* add description of configure --with-build-cc, etc., to INSTALLATION -TD
* modify Switch_Display_Charset() so the font-switching feature can be turned
  off at runtime, rather than silently re-enabling it every time a new page is
  viewed.  The automatic switching is enabled if the user has configured lynx
  to use one of the automatically-detected fonts -TD
* fix ifdef's to allow building --without-font-switch with OS/2 EMX -TD
* work around bug in PDCurses wrapping by adjusting LYcolLimit macro.  The
  dev.14 change to HText_appendCharacter() exposed this bug in the Options menu
  (report by Hataguchi Takeshi) -TD
* fix change to lynx_default_colors() from dev.14 change to work with the
  bright-blue.lss file (report by FLWM) -TD
* add a configure test for ctermid(), needed for OS/2 EMX (report by
  YANAGIHARA Nobuyuki) -TD

* modify LYLoadCGI() to prompt user, displaying the command that would be
  executed, to confirm that it should be.  This makes it easier to notice when
  a local program would be run by activating a lynxcgi link.  This is not done
  in advanced mode, since the URL is already visible in the status line (report
  by vade79, comments by Greg MacManus) -TD

2005-10-17 (2.8.6dev.14)
* add configure script support for large files; some changes made be needed to
  the C code in dev.15 to exploit this -TD
* work around part of the forms-menu extra wrapping from dev.12 by adjusting
  text-field maximum size in HText_beginInput().  There is still wrapping of
  options lists, which has to be treated differently.  The cause for this
  is the fix made to HText_appendCharacter() in dev.12 -TD
* extend experimental option --enable-japanese-utf8, allowing lynx to convert
  EUC-JP and Shift_JIS strings to UTF-8 -TH
* modify CF_BUILD_CC to avoid clobbering environment variable $BUILD_CC
  (from ncurses changes) -TD
* remove special case in CF_XOPEN_SOURCE which suppresses _XOPEN_SOURCE
  definition for Darwin (request by Emanuele Giaquinta)
* fix an off-by-one error in comparison in HText_appendCharacter(), from dev.12
  changes which showed up as wrapped lines in the options menu -TD
* use h_addr_list[0] rather than h_addr in HTTCP.c for POSIX compatibility
  (Emanuele Giaquinta)
* remove references to LIBCMU in HTTCP.c, since it is long obsolete -TD
* force a newline in HTML_end_element() after a </pre>, which causes lines
  containing only whitespace before the </pre> to display a new line, rather
  than putting that whitespace before text that follows the </pre> (report by
  Thorsten Glaser for -TD
* improve fix for LYstartPopup() in dev.6 by keeping the menu width as-is and
  adjusting its position rather than simply using the full screen-width when
  the first try fails (report by Gene Small) -TD
* correct logic in lynx_default_colors() so the color-style configuration does
  not attempt to use default colors on a terminal which does not support it
  (report by Bryan Henderson) -TD
* add/improve limit checks in HTLex.c -Ulf Harnhammar, TD
* ifdef'd out unused code in HTGroup.c -TD
* eliminate fixed-size buffers in LYExpandHostForURL() to guard against
  buffer overflow resulting from too-long domain prefix/suffix data from
  lynx.cfg (report by Ulf Harnhammar) -TD
* add a check for missing ':' in gopher response, to recover from the error
  (patch by Ulf Harnhammar)
* eliminate fixed-size buffers in HTrjis() and related functions to avoid
  potential buffer overflow in nntp pages (report by Ulf Harnhammar,
  CAN-2005-3120) -TD
* correct "escape" character used in HTMake822Word, which was literally an
  ASCII escape character rather than the RFC-822 backslash from 2.8.2dev.3
  changes (report by Frederic Briere, Debian #318034) -TD
* fix:  when first "option" element of "select" had "disabled" attribute, Lynx
  turned the entire "option/choice list" UNMODIFIABLE.  The "disabled"
  attribute of later "option" elements within the same "select" did not have
  this effect.  If the "disabled" attribute is honored, it should disable only
  that element, not parent element or sibling elements (report by Paavo
  Hartikainen) -TD
* make CF_TAR_OPTIONS configure macro work with DJGPP by using $EXEEXT -DK
* update config.guess (2005-09-19) and config.sub (2005-07-08)

* adjust line-position for form fields when -notitle option is used (report by
  Arne Kowallik) -TD

2005-06-07 (2.8.6dev.13)
* add a check in LYnormalColor() to ensure that the color value is really
  a color, i.e., do not do anything for monochrome displays (reports by
  OpenMacNews and Jens Schleusener) -TD
* make -nomargins option apply to Options menu layout -TD
* changes to LYwaddnstr() in dev.12 exposed a case from dev.6 where the title
  string was not truncated to avoid wrapping (report by PG) -TD
* changes to LYwaddnstr() in dev.12 allowed recursion in a case that was only
  designed for iteration (report by OpenMacNews) -TD

2005-06-02 (2.8.6dev.12)
* add rw.po, vi.po from
* modify ".lss" files to work equally well on terminals setup with white text
  on black background, or the reverse.  This also required fixing a few places
  in LYsubwindow() and curses_w_style() to make window backgrounds use the
  colors given in the ".lss" default- and normal-colors lines -TD
* make ".lss" example files somewhat readable by modifying parser to remove
  blanks from the color description lines and modifying the example files to
  use this feature -TD
* modify scripts/ to use strict variable checking, Getopt::Std
  to eliminate a uninitialized variable warning -TD
* modified fix for slang 2.0 which makes it clearer that the last parameter
  of SLexpand_escaped_string is for UTF-8 -JED
* when SOURCE_CACHE_MEMORY is used, avoid repeated realloc's of the same
  memory chunk (really annoying for a long document) -LP
* HTChunk extended to a linked list of chunks, additional put methods added.
  Useful for pool infrastructure -LP
* add ".h" to .SUFFIXES rule in src/chrtrans/ to work around change
  made in NetBSD "make" late in 2003, incorporated into the 2.0 release.
  The CVS change notes:
	  Trim .SUFFIXES to only contain those used in this file.

* modify LYhighlight() to allow for the case where a form link extends for
  several lines.  It was not providing enough padding to fill in the "_"
  characters past the first line of the link -TD
* modify LYwaddnstr() to account for the case where LYhighlight calls it to
  display a link which extends beyond the current line, i.e., it should be
  wrapped.  When lynx is built to use curses-pads, the highlighting was instead
  truncated since it was computed according to the pad's limits.  Fixing this
  exposes some related problems with off-by-one's in GridText.c -TD
* correct parsing of "key 0xNN" lines in command-scripts, had omitted a "!"
  to invert a check (report by Silvio Moioli) -TD
* correct off-by-one in expression for LYHideCursor(), since dev.6 changes
  modified the LYcolLimit variable, changing it from the last usable column
  value to the number of columns (report by DK) -TD
* correct expression in HText_appendCharacter() which was simplified in
  2.8.5dev.4, but broke a comparison used for text-justification -TD
* adjust wide-character offset computation in HText_trimHightext() to account
  for soft newlines, i.e., the cell reserved to show continuation lines -TD
* modify source-view toggle to keep the current anchor visible.  Toggling
  source view may change the line number on which the anchor is found,
  requiring some adjustment.  This feature is implemented only for source
  cached pages -TD
* remove obsolete ifdef in LYwaddnstr() for ncurses 5.1's experimental UTF-8
  support -TD
* modify HTConfirmCookie() and statusline() to allow cookie prompt message in
  Japanese to not be truncated when using wide-curses -TD
* modify logic for locale_charset configuration variable so it is not modified
  simply by saving the .lynxrc while in running in a non-locale configuration.
  That does not alter the display charset used by lynx -TD
* correct calculation of extra space available for justification in
  split_line() for the wide-curses configuration.  Changes from dev.6
  made this count formatting control characters twice, resulting in some
  lines too long when justification was enabled -TD
* improve description of command-line option syntax in the manpage, including
  noting how to find the default values for most options (Debian #292393) -TD
* modify is_true/is_false macros for processing command-line options to accept
  "true" and "false" strings for consistency with the lynx.cfg parser, and to
  ignore case of the boolean option values -TD
* add -notitle option to suppress title line and following blank line to
  maximize screen use for small displays (request by Daniele Baggio) -TD
* add -nomargins option to suppress left/right margins to maximize screen use
  for small displays (request by Daniele Baggio) -TD
* add null-pointer checks in HText_setLastOptionValue() to guard against empty
  <select> (report by Al Viro) -TD

  NetBSD 2.0 (report by Gabor Z Papp) -TD

2005-01-05 (2.8.6dev.11)
* add presentation type for application/xml and text/xml mime types as per
  which states that they may be used, though application/xhtml+xml is the
  preferred media type (Debian #184482) -TD

  Building the djgpp version with S-Lang and mouse-support causes network I/O
  to stop when Lynx is idle waiting for key/mouse events.  This patch adds a
  djgpp_idle_loop() function that does what getxkey() used to do; calls
  tcp_tick() to finish off closed sockets and reply to pings etc.  Tested with
  PD-curses 2.6 too, but I couldn't get mouse to work under DOS.  Not sure
  that's possible at all.

  disable EPSV.  This is ifdef'd with BROKEN_WU_FTPD and checks version (Debian
  #66560, as well as April 2003 reports by HN, PW) -TD
* modify getfile(), etc., to ensure that following a link consisting of a
  fragment will move the cursor to the link containing the target rather than
  simply ensuring that it is visible (Debian #171312) -TD
* modify ShowInfo() to list the rendered size in bytes if the Content-Length

* modify print_wwwfile_to_fd() and void print_crawl_to_fd() to ensure that no
  trailing blanks are written (Debian #204515) -TD
* modify behavior when user attempts to toggle a radiobutton off, to make the
  message that one radio button must be selected only in novice mode (Debian

  #152810) -TD
* reduce embedded blanks in button labels to single blanks -TD
* reduce embedded blanks in title strings to single blanks (Debian #284679) -TD
* add command-line option (-syslog-urls) and lynx.cfg settings (SYSLOG_TEXT,
  SYSLOG_REQUESTED_URLS) to allow syslog'ing of URLs to be optional.  This
  cannot be set from the options menu (Debian #282739) -TD
* modify HTParse() to restore a slash which may be removed during
  simplification of URLs such as "file://localhost/tmp/..".  The
  LYFillLocalFileURL() function would then append the current directory to the
  URL rather than the expected "/".  This case which happens in DIRED, was

* add --with-system-type option to configure script to simplify testing the
  case-statements involving $host_os -TD
* fix a memory leak in IPv6 version of HTGetAddrInfo() -TD
* modify HTCompressed() to choose the last viewer in the list with the best
  quality.  User-defined viewers appear after the built-in viewers, and by
  choosing the last, lynx allows one to override the built-in defaults -TD
* add "deflate" to the encoding types which lynx implements.  This consists
  of several parts (report by Thorsten Glaser) -TD
  + adapted logic from w3m's inflate.c to construct an internal "deflate"
    decompressor.  Tested this with
  + simplify VMS-specific logic for trimming version in HTLoadFile().
  + combined VMS- and Unix logic for decompression in HTLoadFile() as a new
    function decompressAndParse() to eliminate clutter.  As a side-effect,
    eliminate some memory leaks in cases where the file is not loaded properly.
  + add/use new function HTEncodingToCompressType() to eliminate clutter.
  + add "deflate" to the options menu.
  + modify logic that builds "Accept-Encoding" value to omit encodings which
    have no external decompressor associated.  The effect of this change is to
    allow lynx to behave as it did before adding the (possibly incomplete)
    "inflate" support.
  + add INFLATE_PATH to lynx.cfg, to optionally specify an external program
    which can be used to decompress deflated files.  For testing, a shell
    script using w3m's utility, e.g., /usr/lib/w3m/inflate, sufficed.
    NOTE: As currently implemented, lynx requires the external decompression
    programs to be specified even if it can decompress using library calls.
  + use ".zz" for suffix of downloaded (but not inflated) deflated files,
    mapped to application/deflate and application/x-deflate.
* fix LYSetConfigValue(), which did not properly handle the CONF_PRG case which
  is used to allow user configuring the program paths -TD
* fix content_is_compressed() function, which was checking for the absence only
  of some nonstandard encodings (8bit, 7bit, binary) rather than for the
  presence of the encodings as specified in RFC 2068 (gzip, compress, etc).
  This makes lynx able to view a site
  which puts the charset as the Content-Type (report by FLWM) -TD
* fix configure script:  top-level makefile uses $(TAR), which was not defined
  if --without-dired option was used (report by Gabor Z Papp) -TD

2004-10-10 (2.8.6dev.6)
* highlight the target and pause for 20 milliseconds when selecting a link with
  the mouse -GV
* improve layout of options-menu and info-page for multibyte character sets by
  computing the extent of the labels.  This works only for wide-character
  curses (this addresses part of Debian #240069) -TD
* improve check in LYstartPopup() for case where a window would be created too
  far right to be entirely visible.  ncurses changes in 20040417 to allow
  windows to extend beyond the terminal limits exposed this problem (which may
  have occurred with other versions of curses).  Older versions of ncurses
  would return an error in this case (forcing lynx to do the proper layout),
  obscuring the actual problem.  Noticed that the same problem applies to slang
  configuration, and applied a comparable fix there too -TD
* modify HTConfirmCookie() to ensure the translator's note is copied into the
  lynx.pot file, by adding a gettext("Y/N/A/V") call after the comment -TD
* remove references in to the "intl" subdirectory since that is no
  longer packaged with lynx -TD
* modify column limits, allowing text to be written to the last column on the
  screen.  This allows users to view text which is formatted for 80 columns
  without the last character of each line wrapping to the next line -TD
* minor fixes to fr.po (Debian #119751, and aspell) -TD
* remove newline from format in lookup_reject(), fixes a bug introduced in
  2.8.5dev.2 which caused traversal reject-lookups to fail -TD
* minor fixes to fr.po, cs.po and pt_BR.po to eliminate fatal errors as
  reported by "msgfmt -c -v" -TD
* minor fix to fr.po (Debian #271048, report/patch by Arnaud Giersch).
* update URL for "HTML Quick Reference Guide" in lynx_help_main.html (report
  by Jim Jackson) -TD
2324 2325 2326 2327 2328
* update hu.po from
* remove a "defined(gettext)" from the ifdef's in HTConfirmCookie(), since
  recent GNU gettext, e.g., 0.13.1, introduced an incompatible/undocumented
  change to make the function a macro which is defined in terms of dgettext()

* modify pumpData() in HTMIME.c to improve recovery when a charset is found
  that cannot be translated.  Before this change, the charset was not stripped
  from the format string, e.g.,
	text/html; charset=big5
  and since there would be no match for the format, lynx would offer to simply
  download the page (if interactive), or refuse to format (for dumps).
  Although the content of the page is unusable, the user can still navigate
  the page using the links which may be there (Debian #254603) -TD
* add -nonumbers option, which modifies the output of -dump to suppress the
  link-numbering (Debian #255571) -TD
* add -listonly option, which modifies the output of -dump to show only the
  list of links (Debian #255571) -TD
* modify treatment of symbolic links for ftp-URLs to show the link target, as
  with the local directory editor -TD
* correct sort-order of local directory listing, using the target of a symbolic
  link to determine whether it is grouped with files or directories (adapted
  from patch by Kees Cook) -TD
* modify template for temporary-directory name, adding "lynx" prefix (Debian
  #267356) -TD
* fixes for configure script macros used for --enable-nls when --srcdir is
  used (from bug report for dialog by Mike Castle) -TD
* improve configure script macro CF_XOPEN_SOURCE, ensuring that _POSIX_C_SOURCE
  is defined with a value (comment on comp.sys.stratus newsgroup) -TD
* reduce TRST_MAXROWSPAN and TRST_MAXCOLSPAN to 200, which is more plausible
  than 10000 by 1000 (discussion on lynx-dev related to report by Edgard
  Pineda) -TD
* modify LYShowInfo.c to entify most strings, and provide for alignment of
  fields in different locales -TD

2004-06-30 (2.8.6dev.5)
* use LYEnsureAbsoluteURL() on the value passed to handle_LYK_HELP() in case
  it is of the form file:///path rather than file://localhost/path -DK
* add configure check for ncurses' curses_version() function, using that in
  the "-version" output.  Add comparable ifdef's for PDCurses and slang -TD
* Some patches to enable IPv6 on Windows (tested with MingW and MSVC6).  Some
  minor cleanups also -GV
  + LYutils.c; fixed extraction of module/system error strings.
  + Xsystem.c; use <io.h> for mktemp() prototype.
  + HTTCP.c; don't use global host[], fixed call-convention of thread- function
    (must be __stdcall).  Sets pending WSAHOST_NOT_FOUND error status.
  + HTTP.c; _thread_func() wasn't __stdcall.
  + LYexit.c; avoid redeclaring error of exit() in <process.h>.  IMHO it's very
    bad to shadow ANSI functions like this.  Should call LYexit() explicitly.
  + www_tcp.h; cleanup for MSVC and IPv6 headers and macros.  Increase
* updated po files (da.po, et.po, hu.po, sv.po, tr.po) from
* change HTDOS_wwwName() and HTVMS_wwwName() to return a const value (report
  by Serge B) -TD
* update configure script macros CF_XOPEN_SOURCE (fixes Debian #238057) and
  CF_X_ATHENA (from xterm) -TD

* update config.guess (2004-06-24) and config.sub (2004-06-24)
* modified mailcap command and testcommand substitutions to provide for
  running the testcommand's after program initialization (prompted by review
  of Debian #167200, which gave as example a mailcap using %{charset} in the
  test commands) -TD
* add (ifdef'd with EXP_HTTP_HEADERS) code in HTMIME.c to collect and in
  LYShowInfo.c to display the full text of the HTTP headers -TD
* correct command-line options table for "-get_data" and "-post_data" which
  were processed twice, thereby discarding the value (Debian #132674) -TD
* lynx accepts multiple URLs on the command line; all are added to G)oto
  history.  Documented this in manpage (Debian #177062) -TD
* modify logic for -dump so it can dump all pages listed on the command line
  (Debian #199131) -TD
* add presentation type for application/xhtml+xml mime type as per RFC 3236
  (report by Elimar Riesebieter) -TD

2004-05-23 (2.8.6dev.4)
* use puts() rather than printf() in some messages to avoid chance of "%" in
  the translation -TD
* add experimental option --enable-japanese-utf8 for using libiconv for
  Japanese and UTF-8 -TH, TD
* update makelynx.bat -Victor Schneider
* modify configure script CF_ADD_CFLAGS to put definitions of quoted strings
* fixes from Thorsten Glaser:
  + check for arc4random as a possible random function.
  + modify configure script CF_CHECK_CACHE to look for config.guess in
    $ac_aux_dir if it is not in the source directory.
* fix naming conflict with AS_cmp() function when NOT_ASCII is defined -PG
* read user's ".newsauth" file for news-server authentication information
  (prompted by A R Vener request) -TD
* modify HTSaveAndExecute() to check first for result from HTFileSuffix()
  before choosing between BIN_SUFFIX and HTML_SUFFIX.  This allows the PDF
  viewer on OS X to get the proper suffix (.pdf) rather than .bin -PG, TD
* filter out extra screen-repainting when a charset change is made -IZ
* update README and other documentation to reflect new mailing list -TD
* add PREFERRED_ENCODING to lynx.cfg, along with an options-menu selection for
  this, to set "Accept-Encoding:" string -TD
* add PREFERRED_MEDIA_TYPES to lynx.cfg, corresponding to the option for
  HTFilterPresentations().  A minimal set of media types is used by default,
  though the old behavior can be selected -TD
* modify HTFilterPresentations() to use new option menu entry for specifying
  what parts of the user- and system-mailcap data to use in Accept's.  The
  intent is to provide easily managed subsets of the Accept string, to work
  with servers that do not accept long Accept strings (prompted by discussion
  on lynx-dev mailing list) -TD
* Remove logic from HTFilterPresentations() which reduced the Accept strings
  based on wildcards since RFC 2616 says wildcards are lower precedance than
  other settings -TD
* improve matching for mailcap test-commands in HTInit.c by eliminating
  unnecessary whitespace with TrimCommand() -TD
* remove obsolete note about SSL patches in lynx_url_support.html -TD

2004-05-06 (2.8.6dev.3)
* add scripts/, use this to reindent C source files -TD
* bump version in to 2.8.6 -TD

2004-04-27 (2.8.6dev.2)
* modify CF_NCURSES_LIBS to only look for -lmytinfo when building with ncurses.
  This works around FreeBSD's broken linker semantics when configuring for
  ncursesw -TD
* update CF_GNUTLS macro to look for -lgnutls-openssl as well as the older
  -lgnutls-extra library -TD
* fix a spurious match of <openssl/ssl.h> when --with-ssl=path option provides
  enough information to ensure that the test would be incorrect -TD
* update config.guess (2004-02-16), config.sub (2004-02-23)
* fixes to src/chrtrans/, e.g., for building PDCurses version,
  broken by dev.1 changes for cross-compiling -TD
* remove macros such as ARGS1, NOPARM which supported K&R compilers -TD

2004-04-19 (2.8.6dev.1)
* correct ifdef in LYgetattrs() to ensure that getattrs() is used only if the
  configure script actually found it (report/patch by Paul Gilmartin).
* correct LYcommandList() to allocate data passed to HTList_addObject(), since
  LYRemoveFromCloset() may free it (report by FLWM) -TD
* modify configure-script check for use_default_colors() to allow it to find
  NetBSD's implementation of that function (report/patch by Julian Coleman)
* check for non-null file pointer in cleanup of makeuctb to work properly when
  it is invoked without command-line parameters (report by FLWM) -TD
* add a null-pointer check to parameter of HTQuoteParameter(), fixes bug
  introduced in 2.8.5pre.4 (report by FLWM) -TD
* correct units shown by HTReadProgress() for very low rates - bug from
  2.8.5pre.3 changes (report by PG) -TD
* use symbol USE_VERTRACE in HTUtils.h to allow makefiles that do not use the
  configure script to turn on the equivalent --enable vertrace feature (request
  by FLWM) -TD
* modify configure script and makefiles to allow cross-compiling -TD
* make ANSI C required, drop support for K&R C -TD
* update current-version in README -LP
* updated po files (da.po, de.po, et.po, hu.po, tr.po) from
* use autoconf 2.52 (plus patches), to simplify use in cross-compiling -TD
* escape "From " when it appears in a page which is mailed, to avoid confusing
  mail clients -TD

2004-02-04 (2.8.5rel.1)

  script in Cygwin and "-mno-cygwin" option -DK
* move Cygwin defines for WIN_EX, _WINDOWS_NSL out of www_tcp.h, to the
  configure script to fix a definition-order problem with CAN_CUT_AND_PASTE
  (report by DK) -TD
* improve workaround for ncurses to build with pre-4.0 versions that do not
  declare attr_t -TD

2004-01-28 (2.8.5pre.4)
* workaround to build with ncurses 4.2 -TD
* fixes from Thorsten Glaser:
  + use ${GNUSYSTEM_AUX_DIR}/mkinstalldirs if it exists.
  + use $ac_config_sub variable in CF_CHECK_CACHE macro.
  + add case in CF_XOPEN_SOURCE macro to prevent defining _XOPEN_SOURCE
  + use $(MKINSTALLDIRS) variable in generated makefile.
  + correct comment in lynx.cfg for the default value of FTP_PASSIVE

  + increase pattern length for mkdtemp() call.
* add command-line & menu option/config variables to replace the compile-time
  UNDERLINE_LINKS definition (suggested by BL) -TD
* correct ownership of installed lynx_doc directory (report by FLWM, PG) -TD
* modify configure check for tar to test several common variants including
  star, modify to use the configured 'tar' program (request by
* compiler ifdef-fixes -BL
* documentation updates for DJGPP and OpenSSL -DK
* fixes/updates for DJGPP makefiles -DK
* modify po/makefile.inn to substitute the PACKAGE and VERSION strings into
  lynx.pot automatically, and to remove the unused boilerplate header comment
  (suggested by LP) -TD
* fixes for substituted project-version in configure script -TD

2004-01-24 (2.8.5pre.3)
* update documentation's version numbers for release -TD
* modify configure check for libbz2 to allow for older headers which do not
  include <stdio.h> -TD
* add configure option --enable-locale-charset, which adds configure settings
  and an option-menu checkbox telling lynx if it should use the function call
  nl_langinfo(CODESET) to find the display character set rather than rely on
  the user to set it via lynx.cfg or the options menu (discussion with Andreas
  Metzler) -TD
* remove intl subdirectory (gettext-0.10.35), since some of the ".po" files
  have been modified to rely upon newer features of gettext.  Modified
  configure script macro to report this properly -TD
* add SSL_CERT_DIR, SSL_CERT_FILE to (suggested by SC) -TD

* documentation updates for DJGPP -DK, LP, FLWM
* update address for Free Software Foundation in COPYHEADER and COPYING
  (Atsuhito Kohda).
* change CF_CHECK_IPV6 to warn rather than error-out if a working getaddrinfo()
  function cannot be found.  The previous behavior would warn on Linux and
  error-out on other systems (report by RobertM) -TD
* localized displayed strings used for popups in options menu -TD
* add SHOW_KB_NAME to allow user to decide whether to display "KB" or "Kib"
  or even "Kilobytes" for the progress message (discussion on lynx-dev) -TD
* correct form generated to select Visited Links page in LYHistory.c to match
  the values used in LYOptions.c with new function LYMenuVisitedLinks, and
  corrected ifdef to ensure that menu is generated when the forms-based option
  menu is configured (report by TH) -TD
* modify configure check for ranlib to use AC_CHECK_TOOL, since AC_PROG_RANLIB
  does not do proper cross-compiling checks.  This actually applies to autoconf
  2.5x -- autoconf 2.13 does less in that area -TD
* update config.guess (2004-01-05) and config.sub (2004-01-05).
* ensure that freeaddrinfo() is only called if lynx has initialized its
  parameter, fixes a core-dump on IRIX6.5 -TD
* change remaining references for to (reported by
  Frederic L W Meunier) -TD

2004-01-19 (2.8.5pre.2)

* update some URLs in lynx_help -FLWM (Frederic L W Meunier)
* remove a few unnecessary #include's (reported by Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* fix some compiler warnings with casts -PG
* add docs/ directory to "make install-doc" rule.  If the help-files are
  compressed, the same will apply to the non-README files in that directory
  (reported by Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* minor fixes to allow compiling with K&R compiler, e.g.,SunOS 4.x with the
  5lib curses -TD
* split up remove_file() in LYLocal.c so directory removal is performed in a
  separate function remove_directory().  Neither will perform an "rm -rf",
  but only single operations "rm" and "rmdir".  The original behavior can be
  obtained by setting RMDIR_PATH to point to a script which does "rm -rf"
  in lynx.cfg (suggested by Pat Walsh).
* modify configure script so NetBSD does not define _XOPEN_SOURCE, since that
  makes the IPv6 code not compile -TD
2565 2566 2567 2568 2569 2570 2571 2572 2573 2574 2575 2576 2577 2578 2579
* modify configure script to prefer _SGI_SOURCE on IRIX6.5 to allow it to
  compile IPv6 support (report by RobertM) -TD
* replace fixed-buffer Style_className[] with a dynamically-allocated buffer,
  needed for large pages which lack correctly-nested tags, e.g.,
  (reported by Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* move OMIT_SCN_KEEPING definition to LYHash.h, to avoid mismatch between the
  LYCurses.c and HTML.c -TD
* remove obsolete OPT_SCN ifdef from HTML.c since the inactive side does not
  compile -TD
* fix a few out-of-bounds errors in LYSetHiText() and related functions,
  which were found by valgrind -TD

  example of their use) -TD
* correct logic for resetting count of leading/trailing spaces in S_litteral
  case (report by TH) -TD
* remove obsolete XMOSAIC_HACK defines -TD
* adapted patch by Bjoern Jacke <> to ensure that toupper(),
  tolower() and isupper() macros are interpreted in POSIX locale.  This is
  ifdef'd with EXP_ASCII_CTYPES -TD
* improve check for Unix-style shell given in $SHELL by limiting the check to
  the base-name (discussion with GV, DK) -TD
* modify increment_tagged_htline() to reallocate its HTLine parameter if the
  result would be larger than the allocation.  This can happen when a large
  textarea is adjusted (report by Thorsten Glaser)  -TD
* add ifdef'd logic to change HTLine to calloc() rather than memory pools,
  making it possible to use valgrind, etc., for debugging -LP
* modify version shown for SSL to be derived from runtime SSLeay_version()
  function if linked with OpenSSL or SSLeay.  Add corresponding definition
  for GNU TLS (discussion by Frederic L W Meunier, GV) -TD
* add check for broken ProFTPD 1.2.5rc1, e.g., at,
  and force a reconnection if an error 550 is detected when doing RETR.  This
  is ifdef'd with BROKEN_PROFTPD and checks version (reports by GV, DK) -TD
* modify file-upload to not print a warning message if the form-field is empty
  (Frank Heckenbach).
* add a few null-pointer checks to GridText.c (addresses symptoms reported by
  Frederic L W Meunier when nested-tables are toggled off) -TD
* modify LYTrimNewline() to trim carriage-returns as well as line-feeds, making
  it possible to share cookie files between platforms that have different
  line-terminations (report by Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* change a few configure script defaults to "enable":  source-cache, prettysrc
  and read-eta.  Also change default for read-eta configuration flag to "Show
  KB/Sec" (requests by LP, Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* modify generated help_files.sed script to fix a couple of cases where the
  intermediate result had more than 2 ".gz" substrings to reduce (reported by
  IZ) -TD
* change configure script to compile-in file-upload by default, change its
  corresponding ifdef to USE_FILE_UPLOAD -TD
* use EXEEXT, OBJEXT substitutions in -TD

* revert table-layout changes from dev.15/dev.16 because of unresolved
  issues -TD
* add configure option --with-bzlib -TD
* modify bzip2/zlib ifdef's to make them independent -TD
* implement support for bzip compression by internal calls to libbz2 -IZ
* make usage of EDIT_A_PREV_SHORTCUT and EDIT_THE_PREV_SHORTCUT consistent
  (report by LP) -TD
* if a document is in the cache (the rendering is in memory), on reload it
  should not be cleared from the cache until the connection to the server is
  opened; if the connection fails, the user will reuse the old version (request
  by IZ) -LP
* for DJGPP, escape all backslashes in commands given to LYSystem() when
  a Unix-style shell is given in $SHELL -DK, TD
* correct strings in LYOptions.c so ENABLE_LYNXRC works for bookmark_file
  and run_all_execution_links -DK
* modify comparison in USE_CURSES_PAIR_0 ifdef of parse_attributes() to take
  into account the mono-attributes as well.  This fixes a case where a color
  style might have the same color-attributes as the background, and would
  incorrectly fall-through to use the mono-attributes (report by DK) -TD
* rewrote lynx_chg_color() to handle a COLORS value of 16 (report by TH) -TD
* redefine PDCurses' COLORS value to 16, since it incorrectly uses 8 -TD

* add -scrsize option and corresponding SCREEN_SIZE value to lynx.cfg to allow
  lynx's screensize to be specified.  To display background color properly,
  this also requires a patch to PDCurses:
  This requires PDCurses 2.5 and higher -TH
* add a clean-rule to src/chrtrans/makefile.bcb -TD
* fix pathname generated for "View temporary file" in LYDownload.c using new
  function LYAddPathToSave() (report by P.J.Walsh) -TD
* comment-out --enable-libjs option since it is not used -TD
* change code to match lynx.cfg description for FORCE_COOKIE_PROMPT and
  FORCE_SSL_PROMPT, making "prompt" rather than "default" the keyword to use
  when telling lynx to prompt (report by DK) -TD
* really add FORCE_COOKIE_PROMPT setting to lynx.cfg (report by DK) -TD
* change default of configure script options --enable-source-cache and
  --enable-prettysrc to non-experimental to "yes", so they will normally
  be compiled-in, but normally disabled in lynx.cfg (suggested by LP).
* modify configure script and related ifdef's to build with gnutls 0.8.9
  (report by Atsuhito Kohda) -TD
* modify ifdef's to use mkdtemp() if it is available (prompted by MirBSD
  patch) -TD
* several fixes from (TG) (Thorsten Glaser - MirBSD):

  + workaround for invoking shell scripts when executable permissions are
    discarded as a result from using CVS.
  + adjust buffer-size used in a readlink() call in case the result is too
    long to include trailing null.
  + change default ftp mode to passive.
  + if ftp connection fails, automatically retry, switching between passive
    and active modes.  Do this retry switching only when connecting to a
    different host.  A new variable ftp_local_passive distinguishes this
    from the user preference in ftp_passive.
  + improved certificate handling (case-insensitive domain-comparison, strip
    port-numbers from comparison).
  + fix a few typos & compiler-warnings.
* add PT154 charset support.  See
2704 for more information.

  platforms when POSIXLY_CORRECT (sic) is set -TD
* fix configure script check for term.h, which may be <ncursesw/term.h> -TD
* modify an ifdef in HTCheckForInterrupt() to allow compile with DJGPP -GV
* add docs/README.sslcerts (Stefan Caunter <>).

* modify LYLocalFileToURL() to allow for CurrentDir() returning a value that
  does not begin with a slash, e.g., with DJGPP which returns a drive-letter
  first -DK
* amend change in dev.15 to HTParse() to escape spaces, to exclude non-URL
  strings such as absolute filenames (report by Patrick Ash) -TD
* modify LYParseTagParam() (added in dev.13) to not stop on ';' (fixes a bug
  reported by LV which broke complicated refresh-URL containing "&amp;") -TD
* change default start page to, since is not
  maintained -TD
* modify HTML_start_element() to work with a case where there is an HREF
  attribute without a value, fixes bug introduced after dev.9, e.g., for

* correct construction of link to temporary filename in download options, did
  not port to DOS-pathnames (report by LP) -TD

2003-06-01 (2.8.5dev.16)
* add zh_CN.po from
* updated obsolete link for nntp in users's guide -TD
* add F_FILE_TYPE to F_TEXTLIKE() macro, and use it consistently in a few more
  places, making editing in filename fields consistent with other text input
  fields -TD
* add LYAdjHiTextPos() to modify the behavior of color-style code, so leading
  blanks are not highlighted (reported by Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* modify CacheThru_new() to accept "https:" URLs for source-caching (report
  by Chuck Martin) -TD
* adapt some of the SH_EX ifdef'd features (TD):
  + add -delay option, to make progress messages slow, along with corresponding
    code for lynx.cfg

  + show build date/time for systems that do not use a configure script.
  + use LYK_CHG_CENTER keycode bound to ^Q to control whether table cells are
    centered.  The command-line -center option also controls this behavior.
* add BIN_SUFFIX, TEXT_SUFFIX to userdefs.h -TD
* modify BeginInternalPage(), adding a doctype to generated internal pages
  to allow validating them -TD
* modify HTFWriter.c to use binary suffix for any file with an application
  presentation type, to better distinguish it from text and html.  Use text
  suffix for any "text/" file other than "text/html".  These changes cover the
  most common cases needed to make a link to view the temporary file useful in
  the download page -TD
* modify LYdownload_options(), adding a link to view the temporary file if the
  downloaded file is text or html -TD
* modify LYwouldPush(), omitting the download page from list of user-interface
  pages which should not be pushed onto the history stack when visiting another
  page, such as info or help.  Otherwise the downloaded file is discarded
  (report by BL) -TD
* simplify set_vi_keys() and related functions using table-driven
  set_any_keys() and reset_any_keys() -TD
* HTAnchor_findAddress now returns HTParentAnchor, avoid casting -LP
* change select timeout in HTCheckForInterrupt() to zero, allowing immediate
  return rather than waiting (DJGPP otherwise blocks for 50msec).  For Unix
  platforms, the DontCheck() function limits the amount of polling which
  otherwise would be too much CPU usage -LP
* modify configure check for gcc -Winline warning to work around defect in
  gcc 3.3 -TD
* fix bug introduced recently in forms-submitting for TEXTAREA; the "%0d%0a"
  was put after each line rather than before, making the first and second lines
  joined (report by LV) -TD
* reset the leading/trailing space counts in error-recovery logic added in
  2.8.5dev.15 for S_litteral case in SGML_character().  Otherwise a mismatch,
  e.g., due to a stray "<" or ">" in <script>...</script>, prevented a match
  on the </script> -TD
* do not free adult_table[] atexit - it should be perfectly empty after
  free'ing all HText's.  (There is an error if it is not empty at exit) -LP
* unnamed child anchors (`children_notag' list) now use HText memory pool.
  Links properly deleted when reparsing the document -LP
* Use less memory for documents with many anchors:  most anchors are never
  visited, just stored for the reference.  So fill in adult_table[] with
  HTParentAnchor0 (36 bytes size) instead of full HTParentAnchor (~200 bytes).

  HTParentAnchor now allocated on demand, nearly 1:1 to HText.  [more comments
  in HTAnchor.h, changes located in HTAnchor.c] -LP
* HTParentAnchor0 stores its hash value, to avoid calling HASH_FUNCTION twice
  on the same anchor (Re:  HTAnchor_delete()) -LP
* fix a potential out-of-bounds bug in HTBEquivalent() -LP
* change strrchr() calls to strchr() in a few src/*.c file when parsing
  "#fragment" left-to-right -LP
* modify HTFWriter_abort() to remove file on error -IZ
* added hot.paste style which puts a right-arrow at the UR corner (which is
  currently unused).  Clicking on it initiates a GOTO to the current selection
  (same as PASTE_URL action).  The hot.paste style is disabled unless STYLES
  and CUT_AND_PASTE are both enabled.  Disabled and the user defines hot.paste
  in the ".lss" file -IZ
* modify LYK_PASTE_URL case in LYMainLoop.c to allow pasting URLs of the form
  <address> and "<URL:address>" to lynx.  This is useful when it is not easy to
  choose address without the surrounding "<>" or "<URL:>" -IZ
* make a minor memory saving (circa 15%) for table processing, improve yet
  another case of "ladder" (as in the top of google results), and fixes one
  case of "wrong indentation" (elements of a table which contained <center>
  were made too wide) -IZ
* modify Stbl_trimFakeRows() to compensate for 2.8.5dev.15 changes to
  Stbl_addRowToTable() from 2.8.5dev.15 which caches shrinking cell arrays in a
  pool.  It did not take into account reallocation of the same data, e.g., in
  Stbl_reserveCellsInRow().  For example:
  (report by Patrick Ash) -IZ
* add FORCE_COOKIE_PROMPT setting to lynx.cfg, allowing for manipulation in the
  options menu and (if LYNXRC_ENABLE is set) via the .lynxrc file.  This lets
  the user decide whether to ignore prompting for cookies with invalid syntax.
  If the prompts are ignored, a corresponding message is displayed -TD
* add FORCE_SSL_PROMPT setting to lynx.cfg, allowing for manipulation in the
  options menu and (if LYNXRC_ENABLE is set) via the .lynxrc file.  This lets
  the user decide whether to ignore prompting for questionable aspects of
  an SSL connection.  If the prompts are ignored, a corresponding message is
  displayed -TD
* change select() calls to use the expected 1+descriptor value documented for
  that function rather than FD_SETSIZE.  It is possible that some very old
  or unique platform would not work, but this is more efficient (discussion on
  lynx-dev) -TD
* modify logic for S_litteral case in SGML_character() to recover from spaces
  between the '<', '>' and the corresponding end of the tag, e.g.,
	<style >
	< style >
	< style >
  match "<style>", and
	</style >
	< /style >
	< /style >
  match "</style>" (report by TH) -TD
* correct a check in HText_trimHightext() for the last line of the display,
  which left unhighlighted the portion of a multi-line anchor which fell in
  that place (report by TH) -TD
* correct an off-by-one in redraw_lines_of_link() which left the link on the
  last line on a page highlighted when moving the cursor up (reported by Morten
  Bo Johansen) -TD

2003-04-27 (2.8.5dev.15)
* change definition of docdir1, helpdir1 to avoid using ksh-semantics (see
  2.8.5dev.2) -TD
* update ja.po, uk.po, zh_TW.po from
* improve layout of TRSTable.c, reducing "laddering" effect, where cells in
  different columns do not overlap by lines -IZ
* modify SGML_new() to allow display charset-switching when reloading a
  document -IZ
* fix a buffer-size in LYK_PASTE_URL case in LYMainLoop.c -IZ
* various improvements to load-time for TRSTable.c -IZ
  As a test:
  This is a simple table with 2 columns, one with bold contents, another with
  italic one.  The total number of rows is 500K.  With the patch and an
  acceptable malloc(), lynx should use the working set of about 110M to show
  the table.  On my system with 128M memory, this leads to only 4M of the
  process space swapped.
* add case LYK_TO_CLIPBOARD to HTCheckForInterrupt (not a good place), to allow
  COPY command to work during download (copying the location to clipboard).
2861 2862 2863 2864 2865 2866 2867 2868 2869 2870 2871 2872 2873
  The best thing would be to get the location *after* redirects, but this will
  require some additional work -IZ
* add popen-based support for cut/paste.  This is a slightly reworked patch to
  GNU readline.  If RL_PASTE_CMD and RL_CLCOPY_CMD are defined in the
  environment, lynx will use them as commands to do cut&paste.  The simplest
  such commands could just store/retrieve things from
  /tmp/.clipboard_user-name; more advanced ones could use X clipboard -IZ
* modify yawerty_kb.h to map U+0411 and U+0431 to 'B' and 'W' positions
  respectively.  The map contained U+0412 and U+0432 at those positions,
  which are duplicated at other positons -IZ
* fix HTLoadFinger() which was miscasting const data -TD
* update Subir Grewal's Lynx links URL to the newest location -TD
* add configure option --with-gnutls, to allow lynx to be built with gnutls.
2875 2876 2877
  Used gnutls 0.8.6 on Redhat 8.0 to login at yahoo (gnutls is not very
  portable, so this is an experimental option) -TD
* modify loop in HTInitProgramPaths() to convert enum ProgramPaths to an
  integer, to accommodate HPUX 11.22 compiler (report by JES) -TD
2879 2880 2881 2882
* amend change in dev.13 to HTParse() to escape spaces, to exclude lynx's
  internal URL types such as lynxprog (report by P.J.Walsh) -TD
* modified ifdef's to enable -connect_timeout option for DJGPP -GV
  In particular, in LYUtils.c, undef "select" in case Lynx is compiled with
  curses (and not S-Lang).  Watt-32's select_s cannot be used on a
2884 2885 2886 2887 2888
  stdin handle, so one must undef it and use DJGPP's select().
* modify ifdef in HTCheckForInterrupt() to work with MingW and PDcurses -GV
* add version information for the macros in aclocal.m4 (request by Lars
  Hecking) -TD
* modify file-upload to use actual binary-data rather than base64-format -TD
* generate unique boundary for multipart data in HText_SubmitForm() -TD
2890 2891 2892 2893 2894 2895 2896 2897 2898 2899 2900 2901 2902 2903 2904 2905 2906 2907 2908 2909 2910 2911 2912 2913 2914 2915 2916 2917 2918 2919 2920 2921 2922 2923 2924 2925 2926 2927 2928 2929 2930 2931 2932 2933 2934 2935 2936 2937 2938 2939 2940 2941 2942 2943 2944 2945 2946 2947 2948 2949 2950 2951 2952 2953
* reorganize HText_SubmitForm(), maintaining post data using bstring's -TD
* modify HText_SubmitForm() to add field name for the fake coordinate pair
  when formatting a multipart submit (report by Peter Pilsl
  <>) -TD
* change post_data to a bstring; implement functions and macros for
  manipulating bstring data.  This allows post_data to maintain embedded nulls,
  e.g., for file-upload -TD
* fix ifdef's for <ncursesw/term.h> -TD
* fixes for file upload -IZ
  + modify logic for headers use write them even if MultipartContentType was
    not set.
  + change logic for base64 to be used ONLY if \0 was found.
    If a "strange" char is found, only change "text/plain" to
* change a couple of _user_message() calls to HTUserMsg2() calls so their
  content is saved in the "Messages" buffer -IZ, TD
* undo 2002-11-11 SGMLFindTag optimization (problem with color styles,
  reported by IZ). Optimize the function by storing the previously found tags.
  Also use my_casecomp() to decrease AS_casecomp() calls by testing the
  first character manually -LP
* optimize HTStyle comparison:  just compare numbers from enum.
  It was previously implemented as a strcmp comparison with a fixed string.
  Used in a very inner loop, in HTML_put_character() -LP
* LYEnsureAbsoluteURL() now absorbs LYFillLocalFileURL() call -LP
* optimize LYLegitimizeHREF() -LP
* in HTML.c, revise href resolving logic.  HTAnchor_findChildAndLink now
  resolves href with respect to BASE internally; HTParse incorporates
  LYFillLocalFileURL call (after the parsing, and only when the related string
  is not empty and parse includes access, host, path and punctuation).  This
  removes all LYFillLocalFileURL and most HTParse calls from HTML.c and makes
  code more consistent. (Previously, functions were called in a different order
  for document with/without BASE, which had the side effect in some cases,
  e.g., href="c:" on a DOS machine was resolved properly with _any_ base, and
  badly broken without:) -LP
* add/use HTParseALL macro to simplify coding -LP
* revise "internal links" logic (read KW 1997-11-03 notes, before v2.8).
  In HTML.c and HTAnchor.c, internal links code affects only parent lookup
  in the adults table (more correct in case of post data), now a mainline:
  we omit "#ifndef DONT_TRACK_INTERNAL_LINKS" condition in the two files.
  In HTML.c, avoid using internal links for unrelated `src=' attributes
* refine HTAnchor_delete() vs deleteLinks() mutual recursion logic - LP
* change ALIGN_SIZE in GridText.c to sizeof(double), which is probably more
  portable than "8" -LP
* modify a syslog() call to guard against possible '%' in its parameter -TD
* remove extra quotes from calling HTMake822Word() for form boundary names
  (addresses bug report for by P.J.Walsh) -TD

2003-02-04 (2.8.5dev.14)
* correct a missing ">" at the beginning of page sent as response to mailto -TD
* simplify (clarify) anchor structure:  links now moved from HTAnchor to
  HTChildAnchor (the only place they were used).  By this we avoid unneeded
  casting in calls to HTAnchor_followMainLink, HTAnchor_followTypedLink,
  deleteLinks. [GridText.c, HTML.c, LYList.c, HTAnchor.c] -LP
* as of 1998-11-21 "workaround for multiple anchors in the same (invalid) HTML
  document with the same NAME and different destinations (HTAnchor.c) - KW",
  along with skipping HTAnchor_link() call in this case now, we realize that
  HTChildAnchor may have only a single link.  (Previously implemented by
  mainLink and links list).  This simplifies HTAnchor.c -LP
* simplify HTChunk.c -LP
* optimize LYRemoveNewlines() and LYRemoveBlanks() -LP
* check for no common name (CN) in certificate when connecting via SSL, fixes
  a SIGSEGV with
  (patch by Hataguchi Takeshi)
