768 colors, single-process X11, copy-and-paste for all, and more.
Single-process, single-thread version of the X11 port. Much, much
faster than the two-process version. Needs more testing. This version
A common copy-and-paste system for all platforms, based on the
PDC_*clipboard() functions. (This is the first time copy-and-paste is
available for the SDL ports, and it replaces the old X11-specific
C&P.) Press and hold button 1 while selecting; paste with button 2.
Add Shift if mouse events are activated in curses. You can also paste
via Shift-Ctrl-V, and copy with Shift-Ctrl-C (although selecting
already sets the buffer). Note that paste is implemented via
ungetch(), and is currently limited to 256 characters at a time. (You
can get more via PDC_getclipboard().) With some ports (e.g. Wincon),
the existing terminal C&P mechanism may override PDCurses'. DOS and
SDL1 can only C&P within the same app.
A new maximum of 768 colors, for Wincon, SDL and X11. COLOR_PAIRS is
still limited to 256. The idea is that each pair can have a unique
foreground and background, without having to redefine any of the first
256 (predefined) colors. Colors 256-767 have no initial definitions,
and are intended to be set via init_color(). An example has been added
to testcurs (loosely based on part of newtest, by Bill Gray).
Wincon now allows redefinition of all 768 colors, and allows it even
True italics for ConEmu. (It seems it should also support true bold,
but I couldn't make that work.)
Added new functions from ncurses and/or NetBSD: has_mouse(),
is_keypad(), is_leaveok(), is_pad(), set_tabsize(), touchoverlap(),
underscore(), underend(), wunderscore(), and wunderend(). See the man
pages for descriptions. Partly due to Karthik Kumar Viswanathan, and
suggestions of Simon Sobisch.
Bug fixes and such
Check for standard C++ (>= 98), where native bool should exist, and use
that; otherwise (pre-/non-standard C++) fall back to the old behavior.
Satisfies clang, hopefully doesn't mess anything else up.
Recent versions of clang throw an error over "-install_name".
Most curses functions assumed a valid SP (i.e. that initscr() had
already been called). Now, instead, they return ERR or other
appropriate values. Suggestion of S.S.
Deprecated PDC_save_key_modifiers() -- there's no benefit to NOT
Hold back screen updates due to palette changes until paused; always
do this update now (previously only in X11 and SDL, seems necessary in
Windows 10 1903).
SDL2 windows were freezing on moving to another screen (reported by
Mark Hessling). Still issues with moving between screens of different
Find the X libraries in some additional locations. After M.H.
Converted default X11 icons to XPM, fixing their non-display in Ubuntu.
Made XIM standard, removed "classic" X11 compose system.
Made wide-character build the default for X11 (--disable-widec for
Smoother resizing in X11, when not in scrollbar mode.
Dropped X11 options "borderWidth" (broken since at least 2.7) and
"cursorColor" (now set automatically for contrast).
Correctly restore Insert mode and QuickEdit mode in Wincon's
PDC_reset_shell_mode(). Patch by "vyv03354".
Add a WINDRES variable to wincon/Makefile for the sake of cross-
compilers. Patch by Marc-Andre Lureau.
Suppress cursor movement during color tests in testcurs.
Added UTF-8-demo.txt for tuidemo to browse (by default, only in forced
UTF-8 mode). File by Markus Kuhn.
Moved the doc files from "man" to "docs" -- the docs/man thing was too
confusing. Streamlined the web page into two files.
Rewrote the "Portability" sections of the man pages to reflect current
ncurses and NetBSD. The old charts weren't very accurate.
Document resolution of timeout() and napms(). Suggested by S.S.
Rewrote manext (again) in Awk.
Changed most dates to ISO format.
