Release Notes


This release is designed to be upward compatible from ncurses 5.0
through 5.7; very few applications will require recompilation,
depending on the platform. These are the highlights from the
change-log since ncurses 5.7 release.

Interface changes

* turn on _XOPEN_CURSES definition in curses.h.
* change _nc_has_mouse to has_mouse, reflect its use in C++ and
Ada95.
* add is_pad and is_subwin functions for opaque access to the WINDOW
structure.
* add tiparm, based on review of X/Open Curses Issue 7.

New features and improvements

Library Improvements

* add a terminal driver for Windows console, which supports a MinGW
port to Windows.
* add extended functions which specify the SCREEN pointer for
several curses functions which use the global SP.
* improve the NCURSES_NO_UTF8_ACS feature by adding a check for an
extended terminfo capability U8.
* improve performance of tigetstr, etc., by using hashing code from
tic.
* add WACS_xxx definitions to wide-character configuration for
thick- and double-lines.
* modify init_pair to allow caller to create extra color pairs
beyond the color_pairs limit, which use default colors.

Improvements to Programs

* add tabs program.
* modify tic's -I/-C dump to reformat acsc strings into canonical
form (sorted, unique mapping).
* add checks in tic for inconsistent cursor-movement controls, and
for inconsistent printer-controls.
* add special case to _nc_infotocap (used by tic and infocmp) to
recognize the setaf/setab strings from xterm+256color and
xterm+88color, and provide a reduced version which works with
termcap.

Terminal Database

* added entries:
+ bterm terminfo entry, based on bogl 0.1.18
+ cons25-debian entry
+ eterm-color entry
+ linux-16color
+ mlterm+256color entry, for mlterm 3.0.0
+ several screen-bce.xxx entries
+ screen.Eterm terminfo entry
+ vwmterm entry
+ xterm-utf8 entry as a demo of the U8 feature
* updated/improved entries:
+ use extended capabilities:
o add U8 feature to denote entries for terminal emulators
which do not support VT100 SI/SO when processing UTF-8
encoding
o add XT capability to entries for terminals that support
both xterm-style mouse- and title-controls, for screen
which special-cases TERM beginning with xterm or rxvt
+ improvements based on new checks in tic:
+
o fill in no-parameter forms of cursor-movement where a
parameterized form is available
o fill in missing cursor controls where the form of the
controls is ANSI
o add parameterized cursor-controls to linux-basic
o modify nsterm, xnuppc and tek4115 to make sgr/sgr0
consistent
o change several terminfo entries to make consistent use
of ANSI clear-all-tabs
+ extend ansi.sys pfkey capability from kf1-kf10 to kf1-kf48,
moving function key definitions from emx-base for
consistency.
+ correct missing final 'p' in pfkey capability of
ansi.sys-old.
+ rename atari and st52 terminfo entries to atari-old,
st52-old, use newer entries from FreeMiNT.
+ repurpose gnome terminfo entries as vte, retaining gnome
variants for compatibility, but generally deprecating those
since the VTE library is what actually defines the behavior
of "gnome", etc., since 2003.
+ improve interix smso terminfo capability by using reverse
rather than bold.
+ correct initc capability of linux-c-nc end-of-range, make
similar change for dg+ccc and dgunix+ccc.
+ update minix terminfo entry.
+ updated nsterm* entries.
+ remove unnecessary kcan assignment to ^C from putty.
+ suppress ncv in screen and konsole-base entries, allowing
underline.
+ change ncv and op capabilities in sun-color terminfo entry to
match Sun's entry for this.
+ fix typo in rmso for tek4106 entry.
+ improve acsc string for vt52, show arrow keys.
+ add hard-reset for rs2 to wsvt25 to help ensure that reset
ends the alternate character set.
+ add ccc and initc capabilities to xterm-16color.

Major bug fixes

* ncurses library
+ wide character support
o modify length returned by getcchar to count the trailing
null which is documented in X/Open.
o fix an infinite recursion when adding a legacy-coding
8-bit value using insch.
o improve a workaround in adding wide-characters, when a
control character is found. The library uses unctrl to
obtain a printable version of the control character, but
was not passing color or video attributes.
o modify waddch_literal, updating line-pointer after a
multicolumn character is found to not fit on the current
row, and wrapping is done. Since the line-pointer was
not updated, the wrapped multicolumn character was
written to the beginning of the current row.
o fixes in wins_nwstr and related functions to ensure that
special characters, i.e., control characters are handled
properly with the wide-character configuration.
o correct internal _nc_insert_ch to use _nc_insert_wch
when inserting wide characters, since the wins_wch
function that it used did not update the cursor
position.
+ mouse
o add check if Gpm_Open returns a -2, e.g., for "xterm".
This is normally suppressed but can be overridden using
$NCURSES_GPM_TERMS. Ensure that Gpm_Close is called in
this case.
o add check in mouse-driver to disable connection if GPM
returns a zero, indicating that the connection is
closed.
o modify getmouse to act as its documentation implied,
returning on each call the preceding event until none
are left. When no more events remain, it will return
ERR.
+ miscellaneous
o improve handling of color-pairs embedded in attributes
for the extended-colors configuration.
o add check for failure to open hashed-database needed for
db4.6.
o modify use of $CC environment variable which is defined
by X/Open as a curses feature, to ignore it if it is not
a single character.
o modify declaration of cur_term when broken-linker is
used, but enable-reentrant is not, to match pre-5.7.
o correct limit-checks in derwin.
o remove old check in mvderwin which prevented moving a
derived window whose origin happened to coincide with
its parent's origin.
o correct limit-checks in newwin, to ensure that windows
have nonzero size.
o modify set_curterm to make broken-linker configuration
work with changes from 20090228.
o modify wgetch to ensure it checks SIGWINCH when it gets
an error in non-blocking mode.
o correct limit-check in wredrawln, accounting for
begy/begx values.
o fix a null-pointer check in _nc_format_slks in
lib_slk.c, from 20070704 changes.
o correct translation of "^" in _nc_infotocap, used to
transform terminfo to termcap strings.
o modify _nc_wgetch to check for a -1 in the fifo, e.g.,
after a SIGWINCH, and discard that value, to avoid
confusing application.
* other libraries
+ correct transfer of multicolumn characters in multirow
field_buffer, which stopped at the end of the first row due
to filling of unused entries in a cchar_t array with nulls.
+ correct buffer-size after internal resizing of wide-character
set_field_buffer, broken in 20081018 changes.
+ correct layout of working window used to extract data in
wide-character configured by set_field_buffer

Portability

* configure script:
+ new options:

--disable-libtool-version
use the "-version-number" feature which was added
in libtool 1.5. The default value for the option
uses the newer feature, which makes libraries
generated using libtool compatible with the
standard builds of ncurses.

--disable-rpath-hack
disable a feature which adds rpath options for
libraries in unusual places.

--enable-interop
integrate changes for generic/interop support to
form-library.

--enable-pc-files
generate ".pc" files for each of the libraries, and
install them in pkg-config's library directory.

--enable-pthreads-eintr
control whether to allow EINTR to interrupt a read
operation in wgetch. This applies only to the
pthread configuration

--enable-sp-funcs
compile-in support for extended functions which
accept a SCREEN pointer, reducing the need for
juggling the global SP value with set_term and
delscreen.

--enable-term-driver
compile with terminal-driver. That is used in the
MinGW port, and (being somewhat more complicated)
is an experimental alternative to the conventional
termlib internals. Currently, it requires the
sp-funcs feature to be enabled.

--with-ncurses-wrap-prefix
allows setting the prefix for functions used to
wrap global variables to something other than
"_nc_".

--with-pkg-config=[DIR]
check for pkg-config, optionally specifying its
path.

--without-manpages
tells the configure script to suppress the install
of ncurses' manpages.

--without-tests
suppress building test programs.

+ improved options:
o correct logic for --with-database, which was coded as an
enable-type switch.
o omit the opaque-functions from lib_gen.o when
--disable-ext-funcs is used.
* packaging:
+ *-config scripts:
o modify adacurses-config to look for ".ali" files in the
adalib directory.
o correct install for the Ada95 tree, which omitted
libAdaCurses.a used in adacurses-config.
o change install for adacurses-config to provide
additional flavors such as adacursesw-config, for
ncursesw.
o modify scripts to generate ncurses*-config and pc-files
to add dependency for tinfo library.
o use ncurses*-config scripts if available for
test/configure.
o correct name for termlib in ncurses*-config, e.g., if it
is renamed to provide a single file for ncurses/ncursesw
libraries.
o generate manpages for the *-config scripts, adapted from
help2man.
o modify install-rule for manpages so that *-config
manpages will install when building with --srcdir.
o build-fixes for OpenSolaris aka Solaris 11, for
wide-character configuration as well as for rpath
feature in *-config scripts.
o use $includedir symbol in misc/ncurses-config.in, add
--includedir option.
o improve install-rules for pc-files.
o create the pkg-config library directory if needed.
o fix typo "==" where "=" is needed in ncurses-config.in
and gen-pkgconfig.in files.
o modify gen-pkgconfig.in to eliminate a dependency on
rpath when deciding whether to add $LIBS to --libs
output; that should be shown for the ncurses and tinfo
libraries without taking rpath into account.
o modify handling of $PKG_CONFIG_LIBDIR to use only the
first item in a possibly colon-separated list.
+ other packaging issues
o add make-tar.sh scripts to Ada95 and test subdirectories
to help with making those separately distributable.
o add Ada95/configure script, to use in tar-file created
by Ada95/make-tar.sh.
o remove tar-copy.sh and related configure/Makefile
chunks, since the Ada95 binding is now installed using
rules in Ada95/src.
* cross-compiling:
+ improve configure checks for location of tic and infocmp
programs used for installing database and for generating
fallback data, e.g., for cross-compiling.
+ modify #define's for build-compiler to suppress cchar_t
symbol from compile of make_hash and make_keys, improving
cross-compilation of ncursesw.
+ simplify include-dependencies of make_hash and make_keys, to
reduce the need for setting BUILD_CPPFLAGS in cross-compiling
when the build- and target-machines differ.
+ correct cross-compiling configure check for CF_MKSTEMP macro,
by adding a check cache variable set by AC_CHECK_FUNC.
* library dependencies:
+ revise wadd_wch and wecho_wchar to eliminate dependency on
unctrl.
+ adjust configure script so that "t" is not added to library
suffix when weak-symbols are used, allowing the pthread
configuration to more closely match the non-thread naming.
* building the Ada95 tree:
+ changes to use gnatmake project files in the Ada95 tree.
+ add/use configure check to turn on project rules for
Ada95/src.
+ old gnatmake (3.15) does not produce libraries using
project-file; work around by adding script to generate
alternate makefile.
+ add configure --with-ada-sharedlib option, for the test_make
rule.
+ move Ada95-related logic into aclocal.m4, since additional
checks will be needed to distinguish old/new implementations
of gnat.
+ add test_make / test_clean / test_install rules in Ada95/src
+ change install-path for adainclude directory to
/usr/share/ada (was /usr/lib/ada).
* other configure/build issues:
+ make CCHARW_MAX value configurable, noting that changing this
would change the size of cchar_t, and would be
ABI-incompatible.
+ improve comparison of program-names when checking for linked
flavors such as "reset" by ignoring the executable suffix.
+ drop mkdirs.sh, use "mkdir -p".
+ drop misc/ncu-indent and misc/jpf-indent; they are provided
by an external package [3]cindent.
+ change makefiles to use $ARFLAGS rather than $AR_OPTS,
provide a configure check to detect whether a "-" is needed
before "ar" options.
+ modify CF_DISABLE_LEAKS configure macro so that the
--enable-leaks option is not the same as --disable-leaks.
+ improve configure script macros CF_HEADER_PATH and
CF_LIBRARY_PATH by adding CFLAGS, CPPFLAGS and LDFLAGS, LIBS
values to the search-lists.
+ improve configure macros CF_GCC_VERSION and CF_GCC_WARNINGS
to work with gcc 4.x's c89 alias, which gives warning
messages for cases where older versions would produce an
error.
+ modify CF_WITH_LIBTOOL configure check to allow unreleased
libtool version numbers (e.g. which include alphabetic chars,
as well as digits, after the final '.').
+ improve use of symbolic links in makefiles by using "-f"
option if it is supported, to eliminate temporary removal of
the target
+ add a configure-time check to pick a suitable value for
CC_SHARED_OPTS for Solaris.
+ add -shared option to MK_SHARED_LIB when -Bsharable is used,
for *BSD's, without which "main" might be one of the shared
library's dependencies.
+ modify configure script to allow building shared libraries
with gcc on AIX 5 or 6.
+ suppress configure check for static/dynamic linker flags for
gcc on Solaris 10, since gcc is confused by absence of static
libc, and does not switch back to dynamic mode before
finishing the libraries.
+ suppress configure check for static/dynamic linker flags for
gcc on Darwin.
+ modify misc/run_tic.in to create parent directory, in case
this is a new install of hashed database.
+ modify configure check for tic program, used for fallbacks,
to a warning if not found. This makes it simpler to use
additonal scripts to bootstrap the fallbacks code using tic
from the build tree.
* test programs:
+ add test/demo_terminfo, for comparison with demo_termcap.
+ improve test/ncurses.c 'F' test, show combining characters in
color.
+ fix logic for 'V' in test/ncurses.c tests f/F.
+ improve test/ncurses.c 'a test to put mouse droppings in the
proper window.
+ modify ncurses 'F' test to demo wborder_set with colored
lines.
+ modify ncurses 'f' test to demo wborder with colored lines.
+ improve test/ncurses.c 'a' test, using unctrl more
consistently to display meta-characters.
+ correct use of key_name in test/ncurses.c 'A' test, which
only displays wide-characters, not key-codes since 20070612.
+ add test/clip_printw.c to illustrate how to use printw
without wrapping.
+ modify test-programs, e.g,. test/view.c, to address subtle
differences between Tru64/Solaris and HPUX/AIX getcchar
return values.
+ add some test programs (and make these use the same special
keys by sharing linedata.h functions): test/test_addstr.c
test/test_addwstr.c test/test_addchstr.c
test/test_add_wchstr.c
+ add test/xterm-256color.dat
+ modify test programs to allow them to be built with NetBSD
curses.
+ fixes for test programs to build/work on HPUX and AIX, etc.
