Okay, first off, I finally found and fixed a typo with regard to the
utempter support on RedHat-based systems.  I doubt it's ever worked
properly (sigh).  Secondly, I added support for throwing Eterm's
termcap entry into the termcap DB on FreeBSD (and possibly other
*BSD-based) systems thanks to info from Kirby Kuehl
<>.  And finally, added in a patch from Paul
Brannan <> to support some additional escape
sequences for vim.

I made several corrections to the terminfo entry noted by Thomas
	Dickey <>:

	 - Removed cvvis.  It wasn't actually supported and thus conflicted
	   with cnorm.
	 - Removed kf0, which conflicted with kf10.
	 - Added the CPR (u6) capability which I inadvertantly omitted.

	I also removed the extraneous identities, keeping only "Eterm" and

	In a similar vein, I enabled the u8/u9 handshake while keeping the
	ENQ (^E) response disabled.

We no longer care about gravity.  This should help Sawfish users.

The buttonbar can now be toggled on and off both in the config file
	and via an escape sequence.  The themes in CVS use Ctrl-Shift-Button3.
	You can also specify in the config file whether to dock the buttonbar
	at the top or the bottom of the Eterm window.  You can't move it on
	the fly yet, but that will come.

	I also fixed resizing so that the term window didn't redraw itself
	unnecessarily.  Hopefully I didn't break anything in the process.  :-)

	Plus, I fixed poor handling of X-generated ConfigureNotify events, and
	the terminfo stuff is now done at install time instead of build time.

This is the first public availability of the work thus far on Eterm
	0.9.1.  There's quite a bit of new stuff here.

	* Added scrollbar thumb support.

	* Completely redid the terminfo/termcap stuff.  The terminfo file is
	now compiled (by tic) and installed by default (unless you specify
	--without-terminfo).  The config files still say xterm, though,
	because some programs (like SLang and GNU mc) use the silly algorithm
	of "Is $TERM set to xterm?" to detect mouse reporting support in a
	terminal. =P  But if you don't ever use xterm, you can use Eterm's
	termcap and just name it "xterm" instead.  Thanks to Marius Gedminas
	<> for his patch that started this whole revamp.

	* Added the kEsetroot script for KDE users from Dax Games

	* You can now configure the Home and End emulation via --with-home=
	and --with-end= options to configure.  The --with-terminfo option is
	also new, and --enable-xim is now the default.

	* Added a new image state, disabled, for when Eterm loses focus.  This
	is supported by all widgets (well, all those that could possibly be
	on screen when Eterm lost focus), even the background image.  So you
	could actually have all your images darken on focus out and restore
	to normal on focus in.

	* Widget colors formerly dealt with as colors (menu text color,
	scrollbar color, etc.) are now handled by the imageclasses.  Each
	image state can have a foreground and background color defined.  The
	current exception is the background image; I hope to add that later.
	The foreground is the text color and the background is the object
	color (for solid color mode).  So menu text color is set by the menu
	imageclass.  And again, for unfocused colors, use the disabled state
	of the imageclass.

	* Proportionally-spaced fonts are now handled much better.  They are
	still forced into evenly-spaced columns (it's a terminal for crying
	out loud!) but at least you don't end up with Eterm's wider than your
	screen. :-)

	* Home on refresh is gone, as is home on echo.  It's now much simpler.
	There are two options:  home on output, and home on input, the former
	being a combination of echo and refresh.  Also, keypresses that don't
	necessarily have corresonding output can trigger a home on input,
	like Ctrl-End or whatever...ones that don't have special meaning.
	Credit to Darren Stuart Embry <> for pointing out
	this issue and the one with "m-" in font names.

	* I finally got around to re-merging the new parser stuff from my
	work on the Not Game.  Closed up some old potential behavior quirks
	with theme parsing.

	* Added a new escape sequence to fork-and-exec a program.  Also added
	a scrollback search capability to highlight all occurances of a string
	in your scrollback buffer.  Use the new "Etsearch" utility to access
	it.  "Etsearch string" to search for a string, then "Etsearch" by
	itself to reset the highlighting.

	* And of course, the biggie.  Eterm now supports a completely-
	customizeable buttonbar.  Not a menubar, a buttonbar.  It can have an
	arbitrary number of buttons, and each button can perform an action,
	just like a menuitem.  So a button could bring up a menu (like a
	menubar) or launch a program (like a launchbar) or perform an
	operation (like a toolbar).  Each button can have an icon, text, or
	both.  And you can have buttons left- or right-justified in the
	buttonbar.  You will eventually be able to have an arbitrary number
	of buttonbars, but I'm still working on that.

	As with any change this big, things could very easily be broken.  So
	beware. :-)  I have tested this myself, and everything seems to work,
	but I can't test every possibility.  Let me know if you find anything
	that's broken, and enjoy!
