- Use OpenPGP signature provided upstream
- Added abook.keyring, which contains the key from the author
2015-10-26 - p.drouand@gmail.com
- Update to version 0.6.1
* support for mouse
* scrolling now affects the viewport instead of the cursor
* support for a colored UI
* added "groups" as a default field
* the UI now supports merging selected entries [key M]
and removing duplicates [key U]
* a "custom" output filter allows the specification of an output
format using placeholders
* search-next is now bound to "/" too
* some output filters can now be used in the context
of --mutt-query. This is the case of "vcard" and "custom"
[ no --query option has been created and --mutt-query is fully
backward compatible ]
* ldif output filter has been fixed [output modified] in multiple
ways, does not force output to latin1 anymore and supports input
from stdin.
* vcard input/output support:
An original input filter implementation was provided soon
after 0.6.0pre2.
In 2012, an optional build-time option to link against libvformat
was added for the very same task: parsing vcard.
- It depends on the --enable-vformat ./configure switch
- It's only used as an input filter, especially useful to
deal with multi-valued fields and encoded characters.
* when the UI requests a confirmation from the user before a
destructive operation it does not treat unknown key as "yes" anymore.
* allcsv output changes:
- header line uses lowercase
- "MOBILEPHONE" column name changed to "mobile" (consistent w.r.t.
- defined custom fields as well are part of the output now
- Remove abook_vcard_import.patch; fixed on upstream release
- Split out language files into their own package
- Add autoconf and automake dependencies; automake is required by
the configure script itself and autoconf is needed to run
2015-06-18 - crrodriguez@opensuse.org
- Force GnU inline semantics, fix build with GCC5
- Do not use fstack-protector-all, but the builsystem default.
2011-12-09 - coolo@suse.com
- COPYING says it's GPL-2.0+
2011-09-17 - jengelh@medozas.de
- Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile
- Use %_smp_mflags for parallel build
2011-08-09 - asn@cryptomilk.org
- add support for vcards
2009-12-22 - wr@rosenauer.org
- use a hopefully better RPM group
2008-12-18 - brandon@ifup.org
- Use %{version} and make package version reflect upstream version
2008-05-05 - wr@rosenauer.org
- revive abook with version 0.6.0pre2
