- Drop Requires: libgnomeprint; it is not needed for printing any
2018-02-21 - badshah400@gmail.com
- Update to version 18.02.0:
* More tooltips
* A menu containing the most important commands for lists.
* TableOfContents: A right-click menu item that allows to toggle
display of section numbers
* The size of images can now be restricted to any amount of
* On a few operating systems: The network indicator icon now
knows how much CPU power maxima uses.
* Autocompletion now suggests the names of built-in packages for
load(), batch(), and batchload().
* Autocompletion now suggests the names of built-in demos for
* wxMaxima can now handle requests to display raw lisp elements.
* A drop-down box for changing cell styles
* If an input cell is hidden and has no output it now is no more
displayed as a blank vertical space.
* wxMaxima no more requires the icon files, tooltips and
autocompletion files to be shipped as separate files, which
makes creating a ready-to-install package of wxMaxima easier
and less error-prone.
* Autosave is now enabled by default on new installs.
* Big code cleanups.
* Many bugfixes
* Many performance improvements
* Dropped the autotools as the cmake build of wxMaxima is way
more powerful.
- Drop unnecessary post[un] scriptlets for openSUSE >= 1500: these
are automatically handled by rpm file-triggers.

- Update to version 17.10.1
+ No list of changes from upstream.
- Drop wxMaxima-fix-tooltip-comparison.patch: incorporated into
upstream sources.
- Appdata is now installed to %{_datadir}/metainfo, adapt file
list accordingly. Own parent dir to avoid ownership issues.
2017-10-12 - jengelh@inai.de
- Trim description of irrelevant parts.
2017-10-11 - badshah400@gmail.com
- Update wxMaxima-fix-tooltip-comparison.patch to fix a potential
crash introduced by its previous iteration; taken from upstream.
- Use rsvg-convert instead of inkscape to convert svg icons into
multi-sized png icons -- this significantly reduces the number
of build dependencies.
2017-10-01 - badshah400@gmail.com
- Add wxMaxima-fix-tooltip-comparison.patch: Patch from upstream
that fixes building by using the correct comparisn operations
involving `tooltip` [gh#andrejv/wxmaxima#929].
2017-09-30 - badshah400@gmail.com
- Update to version 17.10.0:
* Jump to the char containing the error on encountering
unmatched parenthesis.
* Try to place the cursor near the error in all other cases.
* Attempt to mark the whole error message in red. This is bound
to fail in some cases as maxima sometimes only sends part of
an error message through the error() command. But it is better
than nothing.
* Detect and mark most warnings.
* A "evaluate cells below" right-click-menu item.
* Autosave now even works for unsaved documents adding them to
the "recent documents" list if needed.
* Big parenthesis are now drawn using unicode characters, if
* Nicer integral, Product and Sum signs, optionally including
antialiassing even if no font provides them.
* MouseOver tooltips for some of the more exotic worksheet
* A "Copy as svg" function that is as good as wxSVGFileDc allows
us to be.
* Worksheet objects now can provide their own ToolTips.
* Config Dialogue: An editor for the startup file.
* It is now possible to select which formats "Ctrl+C" should
place data on the clipboard in.
* Now multiple animations can run concurrently and can be told
to autostart.
* A menu entry that allows to select 1D and ASCII Art Maths.
* Recent files that currently don't exist are grayed out now.
* A command-line switch that triggers evaluation on startup of
* Many Bug Fixes and Performance improvements.

- Update to version 17.05.1:
* Mainly fixes some issues related to Mac OS
