    > merge branch begun April 2, 2017 which provides these features:
    + support read/write new binary-format for terminfo which stores
      numeric capabilities as a signed 32-bit integer.  The test programs
      such as picsmap, ncurses were created or updated during 2017 to use
      this feature.
    + the new format is written by the wide-character configuration of
      tic when it finds a numeric capability larger than 32767.
    + other applications such as infocmp built with the wide-character
      ncurses library work as expected.
    + applications built with the "narrow" (8-bit) configuration will
      read the new format, but will limit those extended values to 32767.
    + in either wide/narrow configuration, the structure defined in
      term.h still uses signed 16-bit values.
    + because it is incompatible with the legacy (mid-1980s) binary format,
      a new magic value is provided for the "file" program.
    + the term.5 manual page is updated to describe this new format.
    + the limit on file-size for compiled terminfo is increased in the
      wide-character configuration to 32768.
  - Add ncurses patch 20180120
    + build-fix in picsmap.c for stdint.h existence.
    + add --disable-stripping option to configure scripts.
    + modify ncurses-examples to install test-scripts in the data directory.
    + work around tool-breakage in Debian 9 and later by invoking
      gprconfig to specify the C compiler to be used by gnatmake,
      and conditionally suppressing Library_Options line for static
    + bump the compat level for test-packages to 7, i.e., Debian 5.
  - Add tack patch 1.08-20170818
* Tue Jan 09 2018
  - Add ncurses patch 20180106

    + modify test/savescreen.c to add test patterns that exercise 88-,
      256-, etc., colors.
    + modify configure option --with-build-cc, adding clang, c89 and c99
      as possible default values.
    + modify ncurses-examples configure script to use pkg-config for the
      extra form/menu/panel libraries, to be more consistent with the
      handling of the curses/ncurses library.
    + modify test-packages for mingw to supply "pc" files.
    + modify to list -lpthread as a private library when
      configured to access it via weak symbols.
    + simplify, adding -ltinfo without the special linker
      checks because some versions of the linker simply hard-code the
    + update URLs for ncurses website to use https.
    + modify CF_CURSES_LIBS to fill in $cf_nculib_root in case the
      ncurses-examples are built with a system ncurses that lacks the
      standard "curses" symbolic link, as done by SuSE.  The symbol is
      needed to make a followup check for the pthread library work, and
      would be set properly using the options "--with-screen", etc.
    + generate misc/*.pc with "all" rule, as done for "sources" rule
      (report by Jeffrey Walton).
* Mon Jan 08 2018
  - Add ncurses patch 20171230
    + build-fix for ncurses-examples with Fedora27, adding check for
      reset_color_pairs() -- not yet in Fedora's package.
    + consistently add $CFLAGS to $MK_SHARED_LIB symbol in configure
      script when the latter happens to use the C compiler rather than
      directly using the loader (report by Jeffrey Walton).
    + set ABI for upcoming 6.1 release in "*.map" files.  While there are
      some remaining internals to apply, no ABI-related changes are
    + add configure --with-config-suffix option to work around filename
      conflict with Redhat packages versus test-packages.
  - Add ncurses patch 20171223
    + modify ncurses-examples to quiet const-warnings when building with
    + modify toe to not exit if unable to read a terminal description,
      e.g., if there is a permission problem.
    + minor fix for progs/toe.c, using _nc_free_termtype2.
    + assign 0 to pointer in _nc_tgetent_leak() after freeing it. Also
      avoid reusing pointer from previous successful call to tgetent
      if the latest call is unsuccessful (patch by Michael Schroeder,
      OpenSuSE #1070450).

      for u1-u9 by making a special case for u6.
    + improve curs_attr.3x discussion of color pairs.
* Mon Dec 11 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20171209
    + modify misc/ to make output with --includedir
      consistent with --cflags, i.e., when --disable-overwrite option was
      configured the output should show the subdirectory where headers
    + modify to suppress macros when calling an "implemented"
      function in link_test.c
    + updated ftp-url used in test-packages, etc.
    + modify order of -pie/-shared options in configure script in case
      LDFLAGS uses "-pie", working around a defect or limitation in the GNU
      linker (prompted by patch by Yogesh Prasad, forwarded by Jay Shah).
    + add entry in man_db.renames for user_caps.5
* Mon Nov 27 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20171125
    + modify to avoid tracing result from getstr/getnstr
      before initialized.
    + add "-a" aspect-ratio option to picsmap.
    + add configure check for default path of rgb.txt, used in picsmap.
    + modify _nc_write_entry() to truncate too-long filename (report by
      Hosein Askari, Debian #882620).
    + build-fix for ncurses-examples with NetBSD curses:
      + it lacks the use_env() function.
      + it lacks libpanel; a recent change used the wrong ifdef symbol.
    + add a macro for is_linetouched() and adjust the function's return
      value to make it possible for most applications to check for an
      error-return (report by Midolikawa H).
    + additional manpage cleanup.
    + update config.guess, config.sub from

      account for xon -TD
    + correct sgr string for tmux, which used screen's "standout" code
      rather than the standard code (patch by Roman Kagan)
    + correct sgr/sgr0 strings in a few other cases reported by tic, making
      those correspond to the non-sgr settings where they differ, but
      otherwise use ECMA-48 consistently:

    + clear the other half of a double-width character on which a line
      drawing character is drawn.
    + make test/ncurses.c "s" test easier to understand which subtests are
      available; add a "S" wide-character overlap test-screen.
    + modify test/ncurses.c C/c tests to allow for extended color pairs.

      + implement page up/down commands.
    + add check in tput for init/reset operands to ensure those use a
    + improve manual pages which discuss chtype, cchar_t types and the
      attribute values which can be stored in those types.
    + correct array-index when parsing "-T" command-line option in tabs
    + modify demo_new_pair.c to pass extended pairs to setcchar().

      with 2 rather than 1, and a failure to open terminal 4+errno.
    + amend check in tput, tabs and clear to allow those to use the
      database-only features in cron if a -T option gives a suitable
      terminal name (report by Lauri Tirkkonen).
    + correct an ifdef in test/ncurses.c for systems with soft-keys but

    + fix a symbol conflict that made ncurses.c C/c menu not work with
      Solaris xpg4 curses.
    + add refresh() call to dots_mvcur.c, needed to use mvcur() with
      Solaris xpg4 curses after calling newterm().
    + minor fixes for configure script from work on ncurses-examples and
    + improve animation in test/xmas.c by adding a time-delay in blinkit().
    + modify several test programs to reflect that ncurses honors existing
      signal handlers in initscr(), while other implementations do not.
    + modify bs.c to make it easier to quit.
    + change ncurses-examples to use attr_t vs chtype to follow X/Open
      documentation more closely since Solaris xpg4-curses uses different
      values for WA_xxx vs A_xxx that rely on attr_t being an unsigned
      short.  Tru64 aka OSF1, HPUX, AIX did as ncurses does, equating the
      two sets.

    + improve wide-character implementation of myADDNSTR() in frm_driver.c,
      which was inconsistent with the normal implementation.
    + save/restore cursor position in Undo_Justification(), matching
      behavior of Buffer_To_Window() (report by Leon Winter).
    + modify test/knight to provide the "slow" solution for small screens
      using "R", noting that Warnsdorf's method is easily done with "a".
    + modify several test-programs which call use_default_colors() to
      consistently do this only if "-d" option is given.
    + additional changes to test with non-standard variants of curses:
      + modify a loop limit in firework.c to work around absense of limit
      checks in some libraries.
      + fill the last row of a window with "?" in firstlast if waddch does
      not return ERR on the lower-right corner.
    + add checks in test/configure for some functions not in 4.3BSD curses.
    + fix a regression in test/configure (cf: 20170826).

  - Add ncurses patch 20170826
    + fixes for "iterm2" (report by Leonardo Brondani Schenkel) -TD
    + corrected a warning from tic about keys which are the same, to skip
      over missing/cancelled values.
    + add check in tic for unnecessary use of "2" to denote a shifted
      special key.
    + improve checks in trim_sgr0, comp_parse.c and parse_entry.c, for
      cancelled string capabilities.
    + add check in _nc_parse_entry() for invalid entry name, setting the
      name to "invalid" to avoid problems storing entries.
    + add/improve checks in tic's parser to address invalid input
      + add a check in comp_scan.c to handle the special case where a
      nontext file ending with a NUL rather than newline is given to tic
      as input (Redhat #1484274).
      + allow for cancelled capabilities in _nc_save_str (Redhat #1484276).
      + add validity checks for "use=" target in _nc_parse_entry (Redhat
      + check for invalid strings in postprocess_termcap (Redhat #1484285)
      + reset secondary pointers on EOF in next_char() (Redhat #1484287).
      + guard _nc_safe_strcpy() and _nc_safe_strcat() against calls using
      cancelled strings (Redhat #1484291).
    + correct typo in curs_memleaks.3x (Sven Joachim).
    + improve test/configure checks for some curses variants not based on

      + reduce memory used for tsearch
      + add report in log file showing cumulative color coverage.
    + add -x option to clear/tput to make the E3 extension optional
      (cf: 20130622).
    + add options -T and -V to clear command for compatibility with tput.
    + add usage message to clear command (Debian #371855).
    + improve usage messages for tset and tput.
    + minor fixes to "RDGB" extension and reset_color_pairs().
* Mon Aug 14 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170812
    + improve description of -R option in infocmp manual page (report by
      Stephane Chazelas).
    + add reset_color_pairs() function.
    + add user_caps.5 manual page to document the terminfo extensions used
      by ncurses.
    + improve build scripts, using SIGQUIT vs SIGTRAP; add other configure
      script fixes from work on xterm, lynx and tack.
    + modify install-rule for ncurses-examples to put the data files in
    + improve tracemunch, by changing address-parameters of add_wch(),
      color_content() and pair_content() to dummy parameters.
    + minor optimization to _nc_change_pair, to return quickly when the
      current screen is marked for clearing.
    + in-progress changes to improve performance of test/picsmap.c for
      loading image files.
    + modify allocation for SCREEN's color-pair table to start small, grow
      on demand up to the existing limit.
    + add "RGB" extension capability for direct-color support, use this to
      improve color_content().
    + improve picsmap test-program:
      + if no palette file is needed, attempt to load one based on $TERM,
      checking first in the current directory, then by adding ".dat"
      suffix, and finally in the data-directory, e.g.,
      + add "-l" option for logging
      + add "-d" option for debugging
      + add "-s" option for stepping automatically through list of images,
      with time delay.

    + update config.guess, config.sub from
* Mon Jul 31 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170729
    + update interix entry using tack and SFU on Windows 7 Ultimate -TD
    + use ^? for kdch1 in interix (reported by Jonathan de Boyne Pollard)
    + add "rep" to xterm-new, available since 1997/01/26 -TD
    + move SGR 24 and 27 from vte-2014 to vte-2012 (request by Alain
      Williams) -TD
    + add a check in newline_forces_scroll() in case a program moves the
      cursor outside scrolling margins (report by Robert King).
    + improve _nc_tparm_analyze, using that to extend the checks made by
      tic for reporting inconsistencies between the expected number of
      parameters for a capability and the actual.
    + amend handling of repeat_char capability in EmitRange (adapted from
      report/patch by Dick Wesseling):
      + translate the character to the alternate character set when the
      alternate character set is enabled.
      + do not use repeat_char for characters past 255.
    + document "_nc_free_tinfo" in manual page, because it could be used in
      tack for memory-leak checking.
    + add "--without-tack" configure option to refine "--with-progs"
      configure option.  Normally tack is no longer built in-tree, but
      a few packagers combine it during the build.  If term_entry.h is
      installed, there is no advantage to in-tree builds.
    + adjust configure-script to define HAVE_CURSES_DATA_BOOLNAMES symbol
      needed for tack 1.08 when built in-tree.  Rather than relying upon
      internal "_nc_" functions, tack now uses the boolean, number and
      string capability name-arrays provided by ncurses and SVr4 Unix
      curses.  It still uses term_entry.h for the definitions of the
      extended capability arrays.
    + add an overlooked null-pointer check in mvcur changes from 20170722
  - Modify patch ncurses-5.7-tack.dif and ncurses-6.0.dif to get
    position independent executables as well
* Mon Jul 24 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170722
    + improve test-packages for ncurses-examples and AdaCurses for lintian
    + modify logic for endwin-state to be able to detect the case where
      the screen was never initialized, using that to trigger a flush of
      ncurses' buffer for mvcur, e.g., in test/dots_mvcur.c for the
      term-driver configuration.
    + add dependency upon ncurses_cfg.h to a few other internal header
      files to allow each to be compiled separately.
    + add dependency upon ncurses_cfg.h to tic's header-files; any program
      using tic-library will have to supply this file.  Legacy tack
      versions supply this file; ongoing tack development has dropped the
      dependency upon tic-library and new releases will not be affected.
* Tue Jul 18 2017
  - Fix build by removing workaround in patch ncurses-5.7-tack.dif
    which was required since patch 20170415 but had become obsolete
    with patch 20170715
* Mon Jul 17 2017

      (Debian #868266).
    + reformat terminfo.src with 20170513 updates.
    + improve test-packages to address lintian warnings.
* Mon Jul 10 2017

  - This also for bug bsc#1047964 and bug bsc#1047965
* Mon Jul 03 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170701 (bsc#1046853, bsc#1046858)
    + modify update_getenv() in db_iterator.c to ensure that environment
      variables which are not initially set will be checked later if an
      application happens to set them (patch by Guillaume Maudoux).
    + remove initialization-check for calling napms() in the term-driver
      configuration; none is needed.
    + add help-screen to test/test_getstr.c and test/test_get_wstr.c
    + improve compatibility between different configurations of new_prescr,
      fixing a case with threaded code and term-driver where c++/demo did
      not work (cf: 20160213).
    + the fixes for Redhat #1464685 obscured a problem subsequently
      reported in Redhat #1464687; the given test-case was no longer
      reproducible.  Testing without the fixes for the earlier reports
      showed a problem with buffer overflow in dump_entry.c, which is
      addressed by reducing the use of a fixed-size buffer.
    + add/improve checks in tic's parser to address invalid input
      (Redhat #1464684, #1464685, #1464686, #1464691).
      + alloc_entry.c, add a check for a null-pointer.
      + parse_entry.c, add several checks for valid pointers as well as
      one check to ensure that a single character on a line is not
      treated as the 2-character termcap short-name.
    + fix a memory leak in delscreen() (report by Bai Junq).
    + improve tracemunch, showing thread identifiers as names.
    + fix a use-after-free in NCursesMenu::~NCursesMenu()
    + further amend incorrect calls for memory-leaks from 20170617 changes
      (report by Allen Hewes).
* Sun Jun 25 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170624
    + modify c++/ to accommodate deprecation of throw() and
      throws() in c++17 (prompted by patch by Romain Geissler).
    + remove some incorrect calls for memory-leaks from 20170617 changes
      (report by Allen Hewes).
    + add test-programs for termattrs and term_attrs.
    + modify _nc_outc_wrapper to use the standard output if the screen was
      not initialized, rather than returning an error.
    + improve checks for low-level terminfo functions when the terminal
      has not been initialized (Redhat #1345963).
    + modify make_hash to allow building with address-sanitizer,
      assuming that --disable-leaks is configured.
    + amend changes for number_format() in 20170506 to avoid undefined
      behavior when shifting (patch by Emanuele Giaquinta).
* Wed Jun 21 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170617
    + fill in some places where TERMTYPE2 vs TERMTYPE was not used
      (report by Allen Hewes).
    + use ExitTerminfo() internally in error-exits for ncurses' setupterm
      to help with leak checking.
    + use ExitProgram() in error-exit from initscr() to help with leak
    + review test-programs, adding checks for cases where the terminal
      cannot be initialized.
* Mon Jun 12 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170610
    + add option "-xp" to picsmap.c, to use init_extended_pair().
    + make simple performance fixes for picsmap.c
    + improve aspect ratio of images read from "convert" in picsmap.c
  - Add ncurses patch 20170603
    + add option to picsmap to use color-palette files, e.g., for mapping
      to xterm-256color.
    + move the data in SCREEN used for the alloc_pair() function to the
      end, to restore compatibility between ncurses/ncursesw libtinfo
      (report/patch by Miroslav Lichvar).
    + add build-time utility "report_offsets" to help show when the various
      configurations of tinfo library are compatible or not.
  - Remove patch ncurses-6.0-crashw.patch as a temporary as now part
    of patch level 20170603
* Tue May 30 2017

  - Add ncurses patch 20170527
    + improved test/picsmap.c:
    + lookup named colors for xpm files in rgb.txt
    + accept blanks in color-keys for xpm files.
    + if neither xbm/xpm work, try "convert", which may be available.

  - Fix ncursesw6-config and ncursesw5-config scripts to return -ltinfow
    as well as the pkg-config files do
* Mon May 22 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170520
    + modify test/picsmap.c to read xpm files.
    + modify package/debian/* to create documentation packages, so the
      related files can be checked with lintian.
    + fix some typos in manpages (report/patch by Sven Joachim).
* Mon May 15 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170513
    + add test/picsmap.c to fill in some testing issues not met by dots.
      The initial version reads X bitmap (".xbm") files.
    + repair logic which forces a repaint where a color-pair's content is
      changed (cf: 20170311).
    + improve tracemunch, showing screenXX pointers as names.
* Fri May 12 2017
  - Better screen support and workaround about missing terminfo entries
    might be help on boo#812067 as well as on boo#935736 but may cause
    boo#940459  (which should be fixed by screen its self!)
  - New package terminfo-screen which includes some useful but troubling
    terminfo database entries for screen.
* Wed May 10 2017
  - Disable the usage of getttynam(3) as under Linux this is not used
* Tue May 09 2017

    + change line-length for generated html/manpages to 78 columns from 65.
    + improve discussion of line-drawing characters in curs_add_wch.3x
      (prompted by discussion with Lorinczy Zsigmond).
    + cleanup formatting of hackguide.html and ncurses-intro.html
    + add examples for WACS_D_PLUS and WACS_T_PLUS to test/ncurses.c
* Tue May 02 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170429
    + corrected a case where $with_gpm was set to "maybe" after CF_WITH_GPM,
      overlooked in 20160528 fixes (report by Alexandre Bury).
    + improve a couple of test-program's help-messages.
    + corrected loop in rain.c from 20170415 changes.
    + modify winnstr and winchnstr to return error if the output pointer is
      null, as well as adding a null pointer check of the window pointer
      for better compatibility with other implementations.
    + improve discussion of NetBSD curses in scr_dump.5
    + modify LIMIT_TYPED macro in new_pair.h to avoid changing sign of the
      value to be limited (reports by Darby Payne, Rob Boudreau).

* Mon Apr 24 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170422
    + build-fix for termcap-configuration (report by Chi-Hsuan Yen).
    + improve terminfo manual page discussion of control- and graphics-
    + remove tic warning about "^?" in string capabilities, which was
      marked as an extension (cf: 20000610, 20110820); however all Unix
      implementations support this and X/Open Curses does not address it.
      On the other hand, termcap never did support this feature.
    + correct missing comma-separator between string capabilities in
      icl6402 and m2-nam -TD
    + restore rmir/smir in ansi+idc to better match original ansiterm+idc,
      add alias ansiterm (report by Robert King).
    + amend an old check for ambiguous use of "ma" in terminfo versus
      a termcap use, if the capability is cancelled to treat it as number.
    + correct a case in _nc_captoinfo() which read "%%" and emitted "%".
    + modify sscanf calls in _nc_infotocap() for patterns "%{number}%+%c"
      and "%'char'%+%c" to check that the final character is really 'c',
      avoiding a case in icl6404 which cannot be converted to termcap.
    + in _nc_infotocap(), add a check to ensure that terminfo "^?" is not
      written to termcap, because the BSDs did not implement that.
    + in _nc_tic_expand() and _nc_infotocap(), improve string-length check
      when deciding whether to use "^X" or "\xxx" format for control
      characters, to make the output of tic/infocmp more predictable.
    + limit termcap "%d" width to 2 digits on input, and use "%2" in
      preference to "%02" on output.
    + correct terminfo/termcap conversion of "%02" and "%03" into "%2" and
      "%3"; the result repeated the last character.
    + add man/scr_dump.5 to document screen-dump format.
  - Add ncurses patch 20170415
    + modify several test programs to use new popup_msgs, adapted from
      help-screen used in test/edit_field.c

    + fix minor memory-leaks in test-programs.
    + further improve ifdef in term_entry.h for internal definitions not
      used by tack.
* Mon Apr 03 2017

    + add smso for env230, to match sgr -TD
    + remove p7/protect from sgr in fbterm -TD
    + drop setf/setb from fbterm; setaf/setab are enough -TD
    + make xterm-pcolor sgr consistent with other capabilities -TD
    + add rmxx/smxx ECMA-48 strikeout extension to tmux and xterm-basic
      (discussion with Nicholas Marriott)
    + add test-programs sp_tinfo and extended_color
    + modify no-leaks code for lib_cur_term.c to account for the tgetent()

      works as expected.  Also modify _nc_setupscreen() to avoid redundant
      calls to get original tty-modes.
    + modify set_curterm() to update ttytype[] data used by longname().
    + modify wattr_set() and wattr_get() to return ERR if win-parameter is
      null, as documented.
    + improve cast used for null-pointer checks in header macros, to
      reduce compiler warnings.
    + modify several functions, using the reserved "opts" parameter to pass
      color- and pair-values larger than 16-bits:
      + getcchar(), setcchar(), slk_attr_set(), vid_puts(), wattr_get(),
      wattr_set(), wchgat(), wcolor_set().
      + Other functions call these with the corresponding altered behavior,
      including chgat(), mvchgat(), mvwchgat(), slk_color_on(),
      slk_color_off(), vid_attr().
    + add new functions for manipulating color- and pair-values larger
      than 16-bits.  These are extended_color_content(),
      extended_pair_content(), extended_slk_color(), init_extended_color(),
      init_extended_pair(), and the corresponding sp-funcs.

* Mon Mar 20 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170318
    + change TERMINAL structure in term.h to make it opaque.  Some
      applications misuse its members, e.g., directly modifying it
      rather than using def_prog_mode().

      externals that are used by tack.
    + improve curs_slk.3x in particular its discussion of portability.

      than "vt100" which is now mostly used as a building block for
      terminal emulators -TD
    + correct a few spelling errors in terminfo.src comments -TD
    + add fbterm -TD

  - Add ncurses patch 20170218
    + fix several formatting issues with manual pages.
    + correct read of terminfo entry in which all strings are absent or
      explicitly cancelled.  Before this fix, the result was that all were
      treated as only absent.
    + modify infocmp to suppress mixture of absent/cancelled capabilities
      that would only show as "NULL, NULL", unless the -q option is used,
      e.g., to show "-, @" or "@, -".

* Mon Jan 09 2017
  - Add ncurses patch 20170107
    + amend changes for tput to reset tty modes to "sane" if the program

    + add configure script option --disable-wattr-macros for use in cases
      where one wants to use the same headers for ncurses5/ncurses6
      development, by suppressing the wattr* macros which differ due to
      the introduction of extended colors (prompted by comments in
      Debian #230990, Redhat #1270534).

      not optional in tput.
    + add "clear" as a possible link/alias to tput.
    + improve tput's check for being called as "init" or "reset" to allow
      for transformed names.

      all other versions of "make" does not recognize continuation lines
      of comments.
    + amend the last change to CF_C_ENV_FLAGS to move only the
      preprocessor, optimization and warning flags to CPPFLAGS and CFLAGS,
      leaving the residue in CC.  That happens to work for gcc's various
      "model" options, but may require tuning for other compilers (report
      by Sven Joachim).

      command, making the two almost the same except for window-size.
    + adapt logic used in dialog "--keep-tite" option for test/filter.c as
      "-a" option.  When set, test/filter attempts to suppress the
      alternate screen.

    + regenerate HTML manpages.
    + improve manual pages for wgetch and wget_wch to point out that they

    + regenerate HTML manpages.
    + improve test/demo_menus.c, allowing mouse-click on the menu-headers
      to switch the active menu.  This requires a new extension option
      O_MOUSE_MENU to tell the menu driver to put mouse events which do not
      apply to the active menu back into the queue so that the application
      can handle the event.
  - Add ncurses patch 20160319
    + improve description of tgoto parameters (report by Steffen Nurpmeso).

    + modified test/filter.c to illustrate an alternative to getnstr, that
      polls for input while updating a clock on the right margin as well
      as responding to window size-changes.

      for better consistency with xterm (report by Leonardo Brondani
      Schenkel) -TD
    + modify _nc_viscbuf2() and _tracecchar_t2() to trace wide-characters
      as a whole rather than their multibyte equivalents.
    + minor fix in wadd_wchnstr() to ensure that each cell has nonzero

      check into account.
    + add a configure check for wcwidth() versus the ncurses line-drawing
      characters, to use in special-casing systems such as Solaris.
  - Add ncurses patch 20151212
    + improve CF_XOPEN_CURSES macro used in test/configure, to define as
      needed NCURSES_WIDECHAR for platforms where _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED
      does not work.  Also modified the test program to ensure that if
      building with ncurses, that the cchar_t type is checked, since that
      normally is since 20111030 ifdef'd depending on this test.
    + improve 20121222 workaround for broken acs, letting Solaris "work"
      in spite of its m.isconfigured wcwidth which marks all of the line

      rule that either all functions which are prototyped in SYNOPSIS are
      listed in the NAME section, or the manual-page name is the sole item
      listed in the NAME section.  The latter is used to reduce clutter,
      e.g., for the top-level library manual pages as well as for certain
      feature-pages such as SP-funcs and threading (prompted by patches by
      Jason McIntyre).

    + modify tset's assignment to TERM in its output to reflect the name by
      which the terminal description is found, rather than the primary
      name.  That was an unnecessary part from the initial conversion of
      tset from termcap to terminfo.  The termcap program in 4.3BSD did
      this to avoid using the short 2-character name (report by Rich

      William Gallafent).

      "-lstdc++" to the CXXLIBS symbol.

    + modify script used to generate map/sym files to mark 5.9.20150530 as
      the last "5.9" version, and regenerated the files.  That makes the
      files not use ".current" for the post-5.9 symbols.  This also

      ncurses-examples for consistency with Debian, to work with package

    + add "broken_linker" and "hashed-db" configure options to combinations
      use for generating the ".map" and ".sym" files.
    + avoid using "ld" directly when creating shared library, to simplify
      cross-compiles.  Also drop "-Bsharable" option from shared-library
      rules for FreeBSD and DragonFly (FreeBSD #196592).
    + fix a memory leak in form library Free_RegularExpression_Type()
      (report by Pavel Balaev).
* Wed Jan 07 2015
  - Add ncurses patch 20150103
    + modify_nc_flush() to retry if interrupted (patch by Stian Skjelstad).
    + change map files to make _nc_freeall a global, since it may be used
      via the Ada95 binding when checking for memory leaks.
    + improve sed script used in 20141220 to account for wide-, threaded-
      variations in ABI 6.
  - Add ncurses patch 20141227
    + regenerate ".map" files, using step overlooked in 20141213 to use
      the same patch-dates across each file to match (report by
      Sven Joachim).
  - Add ncurses patch 20141221
    + fix an incorrect variable assignment in 20141220 changes (report by
      Sven Joachim).
  - Add ncurses patch 20141220
    + updated Ada95/configure with macro changes from 20141213
    + tie configure options --with-abi-version and --with-versioned-syms
      together, so that ABI 6 libraries have distinct symbol versions from
      the ABI 5 libraries.
    + replace obsolete/nonworking link to man2html with current one,
      regenerate html-manpages.
* Tue Dec 16 2014
  - Add ncurses patch 20141206
    + updated ".map" files so that each symbol that may be shared across
      the different library configurations has the same label.  Some
      review is needed to ensure these are really compatible.
    + modify to work around change in development version of
      gcc introduced here:
      (reports by Marcus Shawcroft, Maohui Lei).
    + improved configure macro CF_SUBDIR_PATH, from lynx changes.
  - Add ncurses patch 20141213
    + modify misc/ to add -I option for include-directory
      when using both --prefix and --disable-overwrite (report by Misty
      De Meo).
    + add configure option --with-pc-suffix to allow minor renaming of
      ".pc" files and the corresponding library.  Use this in the test
      package for ncurses6.
    + modify configure script so that if pkg-config is not installed, it
      is still possible to install ".pc" files (report by Misty De Meo).
    + updated ".sym" files, removing symbols which are marked as "local"
      in the corresponding ".map" files.
    + updated ".map" files to reflect move of comp_captab and comp_hash
      from tic-library to tinfo-library in 20090711 (report by Sven
  - Add ncurses patch 20141129
    + improved ".map" files by generating them with a script that builds
      ncurses with several related configurations and merges the results.
      A further refinement is planned, to make the tic- and tinfo-library
      symbols use the same versions across each of the four configurations
      which are represented (reports by Sven Joachim, Werner Fink).
* Mon Nov 17 2014
  - Do not use new symbol versioning as some common symbols are missed
  - Add ncurses patch 20141115
    + improve description of limits for color values and color pairs in
      curs_color.3x (prompted by patch by Tim van der Molen).
    + add VERSION file, using first field in that to record the ABI version
      used for configure --with-libtool --disable-libtool-version
    + add configure options for applying the ".map" and ".sym" files to
      the ncurses, form, menu and panel libraries.
    + add ".map" and ".sym" files to show exported symbols, e.g., for
  - Add ncurses patch 20141101
    + improve strict compiler-warnings by adding a cast in TRACE_RETURN
      and making a new TRACE_RETURN1 macro for cases where the cast does
      not apply.
* Mon Oct 20 2014
  - Add ncurses patch 20141018
    + reviewed terminology 0.6.1, add function key definitions.  None of
      the vt100-compatibility issues were improved -TD
    + improve infocmp conversion of extended capabilities to termcap by
      correcting the limit check against parametrized[], as well as filling
      in a check if the string happens to have parameters, e.g., "xm"
      in recent changes.
    + add check for zero/negative dimensions for resizeterm and resize_term
      (report by Mike Gran).
* Mon Oct 13 2014
  - Add ncurses patch 20141011
    + add experimental support for xterm's 1005 mouse mode, to use in a
      demonstration of its limitations.
    + add experimental support for "%u" format to terminfo.
    + modify test/ncurses.c to also show position reports in 'a' test.
    + minor formatting fixes to _nc_trace_mmask_t, make this function
      exported to help with debugging mouse changes.
    + improve behavior of wheel-mice for xterm protocol, noting that there
      are only button-presses for buttons "4" and "5", so there is no need
      to wait to combine events into double-clicks (report/analysis by
      Greg Field).
    + provide examples xterm-1005 and xterm-1006 terminfo entries -TD
    + implement decoder for xterm SGR 1006 mouse mode.
  - Adapt patch ncurses-5.9.dif
