ChangeLog
=========
This file contains a listing of modifications to Eterm in CVS on a per-commit
basis. Dates are included, as are nicknames/names/initials for the persons
making the changes.
Thu Sep 3 17:27:35 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Removed RELNOTES.Eterm and split it into README and ChangeLog. I also
fixed options.c so that keysym definitions are at least accepted. Now
I'll have to find a tn3270 to test with. :-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 3 17:57:38 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added the trans theme and fixed doc/Makefile.in to remove Esetroot on
"make distclean"
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 3 18:36:10 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added the --shade option to replace the DARKEN_TRANSPARENCY #define.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 3 20:28:22 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed problems compiling with MENUBAR_MAX == 0 and without pixmap
support and/or transparency support.
Some unneeded code was removed from main.c as well.
Added the --enable-menus (or --disable-menus) option to the configure
script to automatically disable menubar support.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 11:28:30 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added in the Eterm man page Shaleh <shaleh@debian.org> fixed up for us.
Thanks Shaleh!
Also updated the doc/FAQ.html file with the latest FAQ from the web.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 11:36:33 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Ripped the RELNOTES.Eterm stuff out of ChangeLog and put it in
ReleaseNotes. I decided not to use the name RELNOTES because it does
annoying things with trying to Tab-complete "README". =) From now on,
ChangeLog will be the detail and RELNOTES will be the summary.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 13:24:49 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug mandrake pointed out where supplying a pixmap would kill
a transparent Eterm.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 13:47:32 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the bug pointed out by technoir that made transparent Eterms
flicker when there were two on the desktop at the same time and one was
moving.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 15:42:55 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed scrollbar_floating with transparency so that the root image
shows through underneath the scrollbar. The effect is really sweet. :)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 16:22:29 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed scrollbar_floating without transparency so that it shows the
background color instead of white.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 18:48:08 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added the --tint option. Specify a shade of tinting for a pseudo-
transparent Eterm. It implies --shade. Choices are red, green, blue,
purple, orange, or yellow.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 19:31:18 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a stupid mistake in doing the tinting. Also enabled "yes" and
"no" as valid boolean values.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 4 21:34:09 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the color names. Thanks to technoir for assistance with this.
Choices are now red, green, blue, cyan, magenta, yellow.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sat Sep 5 14:28:18 1998 sdh
Apply focus color change to menubar and scrollbars. Remove old
code that was surrounded by CHANGE_SCROLLCOLOR_ON_FOCUS. Toss
update flag that was exported by scrollbar.h and let menubar.c &
scrollbar.c track focus independently. Old code was doing a bunch
of XCreateGC's without ever freeing the gc. Still a bit kludgy,
but no more so than the shadow color code for the menu/scroll bar.
New config option, unfocusedscrollbar <color>. Command line
option --unfocused-scrollbar-color <color>. Add config entry to
themes/Eterm/MAIN.
Turn on CHANGE_SCROLLCOLOR_ON_FOCUS by default in feature.h.
Add color init entry for menuTextColor def_colorName (main.c).
Why does menubar.c use the global Attributes exported by main.c?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 8 13:50:10 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Updated the menubar files to take advantage of some of the newer
background images in the collection. Also removed the pixmap menu from
the "trans" theme since it's all ignored anyway.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 8 15:14:00 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Cleaned up the changes made by "sdh" (whoever that is). :-) If the
unfocused color is not defined, it will revert to the scrollbar color,
creating a way to "turn the option off," so to speak. It also makes
sure that people who don't want to see the difference don't see it.
Added autogen.sh for the tragically habitual. ;-)
By the way, a few pointers for those messing with Eterm. For one,
feature.h is created from feature.h.in, so changing feature.h does
not affect the final distributed form of Eterm. I had to update
src/feature.h.in to define CHANGE_SCROLLCOLOR_ON_FOCUS in order to see
the changes take effect. For two, if you change the MAIN.in for Eterm,
please change the other themes too.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 8 17:16:34 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed transparency so that it works on any desktop, not just the root.
Only works with E, so non-E users are S.O.L. (Sorry, that's life.)
Thanks to raster for helping me with this. :-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 8 20:52:18 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added a new feature. This was requested by Nick Vargish
<nav@patriot.net>. Basically, the new option --watch-bg (or config
file toggle "watch_bg") tells Eterm to keep track of the mod time of
the background pixmap. If the pixmap changes, Eterm updates and
redraws the background. When coupled with an outside program, this
can produce cycling and/or animated backgrounds.
NOTE: This feature is highly experimental. It can crash Eterm if not
done properly and carefully. In fact, at this point it's more of a
demonstration/proof-of-concept than a feature. If there is enough
interest, I will internalize more of it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sun Sep 13 13:18:31 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the scrollbar_floating option with transparency (again). sdh's
changes on 9/5 screwed it up. The pixmap now shows through once again.
And there was much rejoicing.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sun Sep 13 16:08:06 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added .cvsignore files.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 14 10:11:41 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug pointed out by Hans Engren <h@ns.engren.org> which kept
Eterm and Esetroot from working under certain conditions.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 14 11:38:06 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Final documentation cleanups before the release of 0.8.6.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 14 12:04:43 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Final compilation cleanups before release of 0.8.6. With this commit,
CVS will contain the release version of 0.8.6.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 14 12:58:32 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Installed 0.8.7 into CVS. This release has some major changes in it.
For one, Eterm now uses automake and libtool. The old libmej is now
built as a shared library as well as a static one. Also, everything
but the main() function has been moved into a library, libEterm. Since
most people use lots of Eterms at once, creating a shared library will
reduce the text segment of each Eterm significantly, saving quite a bit
of memory per Eterm.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 13:10:20 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug compiling on Linux. (Damn Linux having dprintf!) ;-P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 13:23:00 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed another bug on Linux, this time with linking Esetroot.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 14:10:05 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Removed MIN_ANCHOR_SIZE and added -a (--min-anchor-size) option. It
is 0 by default so ppl won't complain about the scroll-up "bug".
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 15:03:57 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Changed the pixmap setting code in Esetroot so it will (hopefully) work
better. Geez, if everyone would just use Enlightenment, it would save
me so much grief.... ;-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 16:00:26 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the scaling problem in Esetroot pointed out by technoir thanks
to some code swiped from Enlightenment. I also nuked the code that
was killing Enlightenment when running Esetroot. (Not an E bug, just
lame code.) =P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 17:25:53 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Choosing a pixmap in a transparent Eterm now works. I also renamed
StrSep() to strsep() and changed configure.in to check for strsep().
That allowed me to remove some really annoying #ifdef's in command.c.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 15 17:59:24 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added initial support for an escape code sequence set to mess with the
various transparency options. It doesn't work yet, so don't bother
trying to use it. Some of it will even crash Eterm at this point, but
I'm going home anyway. :-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 16 11:42:16 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Initial work on a patch for CygWin32 support. Also updated autogen.sh
to create libtool stuff.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 16 15:25:32 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed some misc. problems with the new escape sequences. Toggling
transparency on and off now works (more or less). At least stuff won't
crash. :-) Still some kinks to iron out, as always.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 16 17:21:52 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the escape sequence for Pixmap -> None (again). Also made the
transparency toggle work for not having a pixmap.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 16 18:20:47 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Updated the default themes to include the Trans menu.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 13:05:30 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Hack for newer Linux versions in which the real uid must be nonzero to
open the display.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 13:50:50 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Moved the #define for the Linux fix into config.h
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 16:59:17 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
This version has a working CygWin32 port! :-) Some minor hacking may
still be required.
Also included a test for something with transparency.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 17:29:39 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Changed code to use setres*id() functions if they are there (Linux and
HP-UX only AFAIK). This is a vast security improvement for Linux.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 17:49:19 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Hopefully fixed privileges() for systems without setres*id() or saved
uids.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 17:58:17 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
More .cvsignore entries.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 19:03:22 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Changed the --watch-bg option to --watch-pixmap, which will hopefully
make it less tempting for people to think it has something to do with
transparency.
Also added the --watch-desktop option which causes Eterm to monitor
the desktop pixmap for changes and update accordingly. It doesn't
cause flicker like it used to.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 19:36:56 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Some config file parser cleanups and additions to the trans theme.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 20:03:57 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Makefile and theme cleanups.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 20:45:03 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a major bug which caused Eterm to seg fault in trans theme.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 20:56:33 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed another seg fault bug, this time with changing the pixmap via
escape sequence. Doh!
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 17 21:03:34 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Changed the scrollbar_floating attribute back on for the trans theme.
Geez, is there no end to the stuff I've screwed up today?? =P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 18 09:33:30 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added some checks to autogen.sh
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 18 11:18:59 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Put in the #define IMLIB_TRANS, which will make Eterm use Imlib to do
the transparency stuff. There's a problem with it, though, either in
Imlib_create_image_from_drawable() or the way I'm calling it. For
obvious reasons, it's off by default.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 18 16:39:15 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
As expected, raster's imlib fix corrected the problem. Imlib
transparency rendering now works as expected. It is still off by
default since tinting and shading aren't in yet.
Also in this commit is a "fix" to autogen.sh. I got complaints (well,
actually one complaint) about autogen.sh not running configure, so now
it does. IMHO, this behavior is incorrect, as the function of autogen
should be to GENerate the AUTOconf/AUTOmake stuff, not run it. But
since "all the other apps in cvs" run configure, for the sake of
standardization and nothing more, I'll do it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 21 15:45:17 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the aforementioned memory leak as well as some others. Dangling
pointers were cut in half. :)
Imlib transparency still needs to be worked on (read: sped up). One
thing at a time though.
I also fixed some duplicate rendering that was going on with
pseudo-transparency.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 21 16:10:46 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the transparency toggle.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 21 17:05:31 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed bug in Imlib transparency code.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 21 19:46:44 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Looks like Imlib-based transparency is working now. It only reads the
desktop image once. After that, it uses the same desktop pixmap
throughout. So startup is much slower, but through the rest of the
run it's much faster.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Sep 21 20:53:44 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added --shade-pct. When Imlib-based transparency is enabled, you can
specify a percentage by which to shade the background (0 being no
shading, 100 being all black, not to mention rather pointless).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 22 10:41:32 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
With Imlib-based transparency, Eterm now takes --tint as a numerical
option. You specify a 24-bit RGB mask for colored tinting, such as
"--tint 0xffafaf" for a deep red tint or "--tint 0xefefff" for a slight
blue tint.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 22 14:48:03 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug in non-Imlib-based transparency. I also made preparations
for letting non-Imlib-based transparency do shading percentages and
tinting masks. Works on 8bpp, but since that's the only thing I can
test, I'll wait until tomorrow and make sure the other pixel depths
work before I go further.
Imlib-based transparency is pretty slow, but there's more that can be
done with it as far as RGB curves and stuff, so I plan to keep support
for it in there. But I'd stick to using Xlib-based transparency for
now.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 22 18:28:49 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the menubar code so that the menus aren't clipped by the window
or screen edge. There's still one small problem, but I'll look at that
later. :)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 22 21:20:16 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
If root_pixmap() returns None, transparency gets turned off instead of
rendering on a null pixmap.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 23 10:26:01 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed that one last menubar bug.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 23 11:46:44 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a segfault in Esetroot. Also fixed --watch-desktop to work
again (just for you, Nat). ;-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Sep 23 19:07:11 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Some bug fixes pertaining to root_pixmap() failing, transparency and
background pixmaps coinciding, etc.
Also changed the shell_expand() function in options.c so that \'
within single quotes would insert a single quote. This differs from
the shell behavior, but I prefer it. :)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Sep 24 17:14:29 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug with tiling pixmaps in transparency code. (Didn't do it
the way raster wanted it, but it works for now. I'll make it better
later. Unless raster wants to patch it....) :-)
Fixed a bug building without CHANGE_SCROLLCOLOR_ON_FOCUS support.
Changed config file magic numbers to "Eterm-0.8".
The latter two are thanks to Casey Zacek <casey@netcomi.com>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 25 22:32:30 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug in Esetroot.c and the CUTCHARS default in src/feature.h.in
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Sep 25 22:35:44 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Missed another typo in Esetroot.c
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sat Sep 26 21:11:48 EDT 1998 mandrake <mandrake@mandrake.net>
cleaned up a lot of stuff so it compiles a little cleaner.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 29 14:04:39 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed utmp.c for OpenBSD thanks to Jason Ish <jason@obskure.net>
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Sep 29 17:14:11 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Removed the variables mandrake commented out, except for the one that
was still needed. I uncommented that one and put it in #ifdef's to
fix the compiler warnings.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Oct 8 15:24:10 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Some transparency speed-ups (I hope). Still trying to figure out why
I'm not getting ReparentNotify events. =P Also fixed the bug mandrake
pointed out with transparency and the desktop dragbar under E.
Also some fixes from Fritz Mueller <fritzm@digidesign.com> for X
servers which lie about pixel depth and for a bug in Eterm's magic
number checker.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Oct 8 15:29:01 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Correct order: Compile FIRST, commit SECOND. Doh!! =P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Oct 9 12:06:10 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added --with-debugging[=num] to support debugging levels up through 5.
Also added stack trace dump if the OS supports it. In order of
preference, the methods are: U_STACK_TRACE() (on HP-UX in libcl),
pstack (on Solaris), gdb, dbx.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Oct 9 12:18:32 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Oops, forgot to add libmej/snprintf.c to the repository. =P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sun Oct 11 17:35:18 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed autogen.sh so that VERSION was defined again. Apparently
running autoheader before other stuff in autogen.sh is a Bad Thing.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Oct 13 17:38:30 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
If the desktop pixmap goes away (which happens if you're on another
desktop for awhile), we'll just use the old one until it comes back.
Also added Id strings to all C files.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Oct 13 18:18:03 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added Id strings to the Makefile.am files, src/feature.h.in,
configure.in, and autogen.sh. Also added an entry to keep CVS quiet.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Oct 14 12:55:13 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed the bug with dragging a transparent Eterm across E's desktop
dragbar. It reparents to the root window for a bit, but once you drop
the window, it changes backdrops right on cue. Also works when moving
Eterm windows between desktops. Note that this requires the use of
the -W (--watch-desktop) option.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Oct 14 13:02:37 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Nuked some leftover code from testing. (oops)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Oct 14 14:49:01 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added some debugging code to Esetroot.c and added the -x switch to turn
on debugging. Hopefully this will help me track down the DISPLAY bug.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Oct 14 14:54:46 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Blah. Forgot to "if (debug)" out a couple lines. =P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Oct 19 15:33:48 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed transparency stuff so it wouldn't take up mondo CPU time. Since
we're getting events for other windows now, we need to make sure we
only act on events that are ours.
Also fixed scrollbar coloring in transparent mode.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Oct 19 17:03:47 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
New features courtesy a patch from James Antill <james@crazylands.org>
as described here:
\e[9n prints the pixmap filename in the title bar. In transparency
mode, prints transparency info to the title bar.
--home-on-input option which split off part of --home-on-echo
Replaced "strncasecmp(buff, "string ", num)" with macro.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Oct 21 11:11:04 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Fixed a bug with -W and -x together.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Oct 21 12:26:53 CDT 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Final documentation cleanups for 0.8.7 release tomorrow. Barring bug
fixes in the next 24 hours or so, this is 0.8.7 as it will be released
sometime tomorrow morning.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Oct 22 23:38:47 PDT 1998 Manish Singh <yosh@gimp.org>
* strings.c, strings.h: make everything consistent
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Oct 26 22:26:47 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Major changes to the man page. Hopefully people who actually bother
to read the man page will find it easier to mess with the MAIN file.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Nov 2 13:24:21 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Lots of changes here. This is the first commit of 0.8.8. The new
features are:
--shade now takes a percentage of shading. 0% is no shading, 100% is
all black, and anything in between goes. Percent sign optional.
--tint now takes a 24-bit hexadecimal mask. 0xffffff is no tinting,
0x000000 is black, and anything in between goes. It will also take
decimal or octal if you *really* have the urge, but hex is the most
readable.
-V (--menubar-move) now allows dragging the menubar to move the
window. It is on by default if the -x (--borderless) option is used,
and off by default otherwise.
The transparency/shading/tinting escape sequences now work.
FORCE_BACKSPACE and FORCE_DELETE have been fixed.
KS_DELETE (the strings associated with pressing the Delete key) is
now set to ^? by default.
-N (--anim) options for background pixmap cycling. Syntax is
"<delay> <background> <background> ..." where <delay> is the delay in
seconds between updates and <background> is either "0 0 <file>" or
"-1 -1 <file>" or "<file>". This feature should still be considered
beta.
--with-cc argument to configure for forcing a build with an alternative
compiler (for those who have pgcc but want to use gcc, etc.).
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Nov 2 16:11:37 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Feh. Got rid of the warning in command.c. Chalk that one up to
laziness on my part. =P
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 3 19:56:15 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added an optional boolean parameter to ESC ] 6 ; 0 escape sequence.
Also added code to clear the shading/tinting when loading a new
pixmap. This will be an option soon, but not tonight.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Nov 5 19:17:58 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added support for the old color strings to the escape sequence handler
for tinting. They won't work on the command line, though.
xerror_handler() will no longer exit Eterm. We'll see how that goes.
New --disable-stack-trace option to configure to disable stack
tracing on abnormal termination.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Nov 6 09:26:38 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Shading and tinting were broken for 2 days, and nobody told me. Feh.

No, I said *don't* exit on X errors. And I meant it. Really.

Added src/Eterm.xpm as the default Eterm icon pixmap.
Added the -I/--icon parameters to specify an alternate icon pixmap.
The attribute "icon <filename>" is valid in the pixmaps context of the
config file.
Note that -I used to be --print-pipe. Not any more.

Fixed a bug when no background image was specified. Dunno how on
earth that happened....
When Eterm gets the escape sequence to change the title, it will also
change the icon name. Not compliant with other terms, but I don't
care. What mandrake wants, mandrake gets. ;-) Besides, sometimes you
have to violate standards in favor of useability. This is one of
those times.
When an icon is specified, use XGetIconSizes() to pick a size for it.
When using the default, it's 64x64. The WM can cope. :-)
No, mandrake, it's still not ICCCM, but I'm working on it. :-)
And no, raster, it doesn't snapshot the window. I'll leave that one
to you to write. You can thank me later. >:)

Now the hosts in the chooser theme change the title bar instead of the
menubar title, thanks to a new extended menubar function called
"apptitle:". See themes/chooser/chooser.menu for an example of it in
action.
Kterm (Kanji Eterm) now supports multi-byte fonts in the menubar,
thanks to Sung-Hyun Nam <namsh@lgic.co.kr>.

Wheee. Minor bug fix. Also redid the cvs_ident string declarations
to make egcs happy. =P

Esetroot.c: Fixed an X server memory leak.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Thu Nov 12 08:54:58 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Reverted Gerald's change. Been there, done that. It kills E. Sorry,
but if the X server doesn't work right, that's not my problem. I'm
not going to kill E over it. Tough break.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Mon Nov 16 19:31:29 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Finally got around to doing that icon window thing to make mandrake
and ICCCM (the next-to-worst acronym in history, second only to i18n)
happy. Are we there yet?

Fixes for Digital UNIX from <wd@unx.dec.com>. These were all "Stupid
KainX" bugs that I didn't catch because GNU's cpp is more forgiving
than most vendors' cpp's.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 24 13:39:34 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
This is the Correct (tm) fix to the memory leak pointed out by
Gerald. He and I had a pow-wow of sorts via e-mail with Nat and
raster, and this is the solution that wasn't crapped on by anyone.
:-)
Just to document what we came up with.... Esetroot sets the
_XROOTPMAP_ID property as always, but now it sets a companion property
as well, ESETROOT_PMAP_ID. Both are set to the same pixmap ID. When
Esetroot runs, it checks to see if _XROOTPMAP_ID == ESETROOT_PMAP_ID,
and if so, it knows that it set the pixmap itself and can safely do
an XKillClient() on it. If they are not equal, calling XKillClient()
would kill the application which did set it, most likely a window
manager like Enlightenment or the patched versions of AfterStep or
WindowMaker.
No window manager code changes should be necessary. If, however,
a person were to write a "helper app" that sets the background (like
Esetroot does), further memory leaks could be avoided by having that
program set/change ESETROOT_PMAP_ID.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 24 16:26:22 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added -center (-c) option to Esetroot for centering the pixmap. Most
of these changes are from a patch submitted by Ralph Giles
<ralphbla@sfu.ca>.

Some fairly useless stuff that I really don't even want to document
for fear it might actually get used, and people will expect more out
of it than they should. If you really wanna know, diff it. :)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Nov 24 21:48:24 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
New feature. --pause will make Eterm wait for a keypress when the
child process exits. Useful most often in combination with -e.
Also removed all traces of --watch-pixmap. Good riddance. -N
(--anim) is much smoother and less bug-prone.

Some bug fixes in the ongoing saga of KainX vs. The Solaris 7 64-Bit
Kernel.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Dec 4 16:11:03 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Ok, this should make Eterm compliant with the GNU FHS. I also did a
LOT of futzing around with configure.in, so if I broke something in
doing either of these things, please let me know.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Dec 4 19:45:39 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Feh. Thanks Pavlov. :-)

Mon Dec 7 18:04:09 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
FreeBSD fixes, fixes for building without Imlib support (oops), and
fixes for the RPATH problem with Debian and autofs. Thanks to Murray
Stokely <murray@cdrom.com> for continued help on the FreeBSD front.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Dec 8 12:10:55 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Another of the Eterm-specific escape sequences. This one is \e]6;3\a
which will force Eterm to update the pseudo-transparent background.
To those who've complained about -W making things too slow...Merry
Christmas. :-)
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Another oopsie from the December 4th changes.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fri Dec 18 13:44:04 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
The long awaited selection options. There are two new options here.
The first, --xterm-select, duplicates xterm's treatment of cutchars
(which is broken, IMHO, but some people want it). The second,
--select-line, causes Eterm to select the whole line on a triple-click.
The default is now to select only to the end of the line plus the
current word. The corresponding config file attributes, xterm_select
and select_line, both go in the toggles context.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the Trying-to-Please-All-the-People-All-the-Time department...
%random() seeds based on process ID *and* time(NULL) now. Feh.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tue Dec 29 16:52:34 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
A new Eterm feature. This one is called "Viewport Mode." It is
toggled on by the --viewport-mode parameter or the viewport_mode
attribute in the toggles section. The basic concept is that the
background of the Eterm window becomes a viewport to a background
image. Kinda like pseudo-transparency, but not related to the desktop
in any way. As you move the Eterm window, the background moves too.
Scaled pixmaps are scaled up to the size of the desktop, and a portion
shows through as the background.
Okay, so it's kinda hard to describe. :-) Just try it and see. I
recommend getting several of them open at once using the same scaled
image. The effect is interesting. :-)
Shading and tinting don't yet work with it, but I'm getting there. At
least it won't crash your X server, like it did mine earlier. :-)
Credit to es9 on IRC for the idea.

And Tynian said, "Let there be Debian Stuff." And there was Debian
Stuff. And it was good.

Viewport + shading/tinting escape sequences is fixed. I also fixed a
bug with shading/tinting.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Wed Dec 30 12:07:18 CST 1998 Michael Jennings <mej@eterm.org>
Added an Eterm.spec.in file as submitted by techn0ir, with a couple
minor changes. I know nothing about this file, so I have no clue how
well it will work, if at all.
configure.in now generates Eterm.spec from Eterm.spec.in to do
automatic version updating.
Minor changes to the Description section in the Debian stuff.
