- fix potential buffer overrun in show_all_active.patch
- redo combine screen_enhance_windows_list_1_3.patch,
into screen_enhance_windows_list.patch.
Do not mess with the old %w behaviour, just add support for the
windows command argument. Fixes bnc#808565.
2013-03-24 -
- Patch screen_enhance_windows_list_1_3.patch changed wW string escapes
in an unintended way.
Fix this by ignoring longflg and behave the way wW string esacpes
behaved with adding addtional L escape. (So %w is now what %Lw was before
all these changes. This should be a minor, acceptable change as it was
undocumented and it buys quite some code cleanup with it.). Patch is:
2013-02-18 -
- Introduce Xx string escape showing the executed command of a window
patch: show_all_active.patch
2013-02-05 -
- Add zombie and enhance windows commands
screen-poll-zombies.patch: Dead windows will be restarted after
a specified timeout (if enabled)
Cleanup window flags processing. This leads to a slight
output change in "Ww" string escapes (window list), but these
should be rather seldom used and flags are still shown.
Enhance windows command with an optional string escape based
parameter which also removes the output size (1024 bytes)
restriction (only if param is passed) of the windows command.
If you used captions with "%w" before, you can simulate the old
behaviour with "%-w%n* %t%+w".
- Only Require makeinfo for openSUSE versions 11.4 and above.
This requirement did not exist in earlier versions, now the package
builds again for example against SLES 11 (11.4 based).
2012-10-25 -
- Fix sort command to not stop at window gaps.
That can happen if windows got deleted and the window numbers do not
increment sequentially anymore.
2012-10-09 -
- add use_locale.diff to fix --enable-use-locale configure option
2012-09-13 -
- add prereq coreutils so that mkdir works [bnc#780033]
2012-09-08 -
