New in version 5.0-20131107

January 29th, 2014
  • This version adds scroller.h to the list of installed header files and adds packaging scripts used for testing cross-compiles to MingW.

New in version 5.0-20120323 (March 26th, 2012)

  • use gmtime instead of localtime in a few places so that calendar results are not offset by the hour of the day (report/analysis by Alex Charis).
  • add configure option --enable-const, which defines, like NCURSES_CONST, the symbol CDK_CONST which can be used to address improved const checking while preserving source-compatibility.
  • revise copyChtypeList to correspond with copyCharList
  • use const in cdk_util function prototypes, similar "string" uses to improve writable-strings warnings. Arrays of strings are not addressed due to compatibility.
  • change document directory to /usr/share/doc
  • add configure --enable-hdr-subdir to control whether cdk.h should be in /usr/include/cdk for example, or in /usr/include. Make the default the latter, standard layout.
  • simplify dpkg script, provide only one library using ncursesw
  • updated configure script macros, many changes for portability.
  • add cdk_test.h to installed headers (Debian #500161). Resolution of that bug report by the way did not actually install the requested header file.
  • update config.guess, config.sub
