Mon Dec  3 03:11:07 MET 2007	(1.6.2)

    - compilation fixes for newer gcc
    - makefile tweaks (man vs share/man, /usr/X11R6 vs /usr, etc)
    - default device changed to /dev/vbi0
    - adapt to current v4l2 api
    - some minor fixes collected during the past years

    This is a build-time update to conform to newer compilers and
    system environments.  If you have a running AleVT there's no
    reason to update.  The only real fix is in the html-exporter
    which was producing broken html (missing double-quotes).

Thu Jan 23 01:53:10 MET 2003

    - Fixed a bug in contrib/cap-all.c (fdset_init before vbi_open)
    - Expaned cap-all.c to show how to save in two formats simultaneously.

Tue Aug 20 05:22:16 MEST 2002	(1.6.1)

    - Removed the bttv-warning from the help pages ;-)

Mon Jul 23 18:34:32 MEST 2001

    - Fixed bug in ui.c - found by <pawel@sakowski.eu.org>.
    - When clicking on page numbers accept sub-page numbers too.

Sat Dec 23 15:12:11 MET 2000

    - Fixed 'double height last line' bug in export.c reported by
      <Matthias.Kleinmann@urz.uni-heidelberg.de>

Thu Oct 12 02:19:31 MEST 2000

    - The &nbsp; fix was wrong.  Removed it.

Wed Oct 11 19:41:38 MEST 2000	(1.6.0)

    - Some documentation tweaks.
    - Release.  Made it 1.6 because of V4l2 API.

Thu Sep 21 21:07:12 MEST 2000

    - Removed old bttv-only decoder.  Only the v4l2-based stays.
      If the device does not support v4l2, default parameters
      appropriate for the bttv-driver are taken.
    - Subpage cycling (up/down and 2nd wheel) stays in the current
      page.

Sat Sep 16 23:52:12 MEST 2000

    - Experimental v4l2 interface added.
    - Finetune defaults to 1 now.  Works best for me.  Tell me
      if you don't like it.
    - Russian patch still not added :-/
    - Fixed the bug in xio.c that Ben Smithurst
      <ben@scientia.demon.co.uk> found.
    - Added the dual-wheel-mouse patch from Holger Fitzner.

Tue May 30 03:09:24 MEST 2000

    - As Matto Fransen <matto@matto.nl> reported: the ; after &nbsp
      in exp-html is missing.  fixed that.

Tue May  9 20:21:52 MEST 2000

    - Removed the -oldbttv/-newbttv options.  If your driver has
      a buffer size different from that in the current bttv you
      either have to support the VBISIZE ioctl or change the source.
      (Tried to implement an autodetect by non-blocking reads but
      that confuses the driver that much that it no longers gives
      reasonable data.)
    - Added a compression option to the png export filter and
      changed the default compression level to the lib's default.
      The prev default of 9 was way to slow.

Wed May  3 19:18:55 MEST 2000

    - Added a smaller font.  Made out of the neep9 font from
      the really great jmk-fonts (http://www.pobox.com/~jmknoble).

Sat Apr 29 02:36:41 MEST 2000

    - Fixed SEGV in export.c:adjust.
    - Fixed a possible buffer overrun in exp-txt.c

Thu Nov  4 21:18:52 MET 1999	(1.5.1)

    - Added os.h.  That way alevt compiles right out of the
      box on all BSD systems (I hope *g*).
    - Fixed the DST bug in alevt-date.
    - Put vtwiz.pl in contrib, a perl/tk/set-tv script to
      launch alevt written by Joern Borgert.

Tue Oct 26 23:55:09 MEST 1999	(1.5.1-pre1)

    - Added timeout option to alevt-cap.
    - Use install instead of cp in the Makefile.
    - Added -I/usr/local/include and -L/usr/local/lib
      in the Makefile.
    - Changed #ifdef FREEBSD to #ifdef BSD.
    - exchanged contrib/paul-export.patch with
      paul.fmt_page.c (a replacement for export.c:fmt_page())
      and paul.fmt_page.patch (the same in form of a
      patch file).
    - Some doc corrections.

Thu Oct 14 02:49:48 MEST 1999

    - Added FREEBSD patches.

Fri Oct  8 23:36:45 MEST 1999	(1.5.0)

    - Updated the documentation.

    So, what's new since 1.4.9 (nearly 4 months ago)?
    Two major things: full latin-2 support and export
    filters for alevt-cap and alevt itself.

    For the latin-2 support page enhancement packets
    have to be decoded and some latin-1 pages may
    benefit from that, too.  Note: if you select
    latin-2 everything is latin-2, even cut'n paste.
    (new cmdline option -charset latin-1|2)

    The export filters allow saving pages in different
    formats.  At the moment there's ascii (with and with-
    out color), html, png, and ppm.  The png filter
    requires libpng.  If you don't have it (or don't want
    png support) just remove the WITH_PNG from the
    Makefile.  To save the currently displayed page just
    press 's'.  See alevt-cap(1) for the format string.

    Preview: 1.5.1 will have the FreeBSD patches and
    any bug fixes.  (But not more *g*).

Fri Oct  8 02:06:35 MEST 1999	(1.5.0-pre4)

    Finally I could get away from my Playstation and
    work a little bit on alevt *g*

    - Tried to change alevt-date with freebsd patches from
      Thomas Runge <runge@rostock.zgdv.de>.  They do not
      have the timezone and daylight variables.  But I do
      not have tm_gmtoff.  So it's commented out for the
      moment.
    - Made font.[ch] so that only one copy of the fonts is
      in the executable when including export modules
      (exp-gfx.c uses them).  Had to tweak the makefile.
    - Added 's' for saving pages to files.  Prompts for
      a format string and a filename and saves the
      currently displayed page.
      (Formerly, 's' and 'S' were aliases for '/' and '?'
      (searching))
    - Found a bug in export.c regarding double height lines.
    - Added a patch to the contrib dir to pass the URL you
      click on to netscape.

    The documentation updates are still missing.  That's
    the last thing to do for 1.5.0.  But that's so boring...

Fri Aug 20 21:28:18 MEST 1999

    Back from holidays and time for alevt...

    - Added html, png, and ppm export modules from Paul.
    - Fixed the return status for export_output.
    - Tweaked the makefile for libpng support.
    - Added the export howto to the contrib dir.
    - Added Paul's fmt_page routine to contrib as a patch
      to export.c
    - Added "-format help" to list all output formats and
      its options.

    Still to do: update man page of alevt-cap, add export
    to alevt, add erc to alevt-cap.

    Oh, btw, alevt is running on FreeBSD with the bt848
    driver from Roger Hardiman <roger@cs.strath.ac.uk> *g*.
    I wonder if it's possible to port his driver to linux.
    Maybe it runs better then bttv... (I still get reports
    with stuck xawtvs ...)

Mon Jul 19 01:15:50 MEST 1999	(1.5.0-pre3)

    - Added export modules.  It's gotten much to complex.

    A lot of things still to do:  add other formats [Paul?],
    add documentation, add format-help, add export to alevt,
    add erc to alevt-cap, ...

Mon Jul 12 00:09:03 MEST 1999

    - Added an incomplete 20x24 font to the contrib dir.

Tue Jun 29 00:46:03 MEST 1999	(1.5.0-pre2)

    - Added lanugage tables from Radoslaw.
    - Added new latin-2 font from Radoslaw.
    - Fixed a bug with hold graphics.  There's still one bug
      on CNN's page 100 (has to do with set-after behaviour of
      color select in hold graphics mode).  The last line of the
      earth should be blue-blue-green not blue-green-green.
      AleVT always uses set-at behaviour.  Afaik, this combination
      (hold + set-after) is the only way to see the difference
      between set-at and set-after.  Set-after will blow up the
      code so I will leave it as it is.
    - vbi now collects all pkt26 and enhances the page before
      it is passed on.  Seem's to work.

Tue Jun 22 22:13:45 MEST 1999	(1.5.0-pre1)

    - Fixed hamm24.  And, it should be fast now *g*
    - Moved the language conversion parts to lang.c
    - Added additional lang_chars for use with the latin-2 charset.
    - Added -charset latin-1/2 option.
    - Added pkt x/26 decoding.  ... and noticed, that these packets
      are sent between line 0 and 1.  FUCK.  Now I have to save
      all x/26 until the page is complete.  But not today... :-(

      Things are getting more and more uglier.  The right thing
      to do would be to make a big font with all possible chars
      (including cyrillic, arabic, smoothed graphics, ...).
      That would mean to make each char in vtp->data 16 bit.  
      And then add an attribute word for each char so that the
      enhanced attributes work, too.  Searching and cut & paste
      would be more complicated...  but the worst, the pages
      will be much bigger (4 times larger).  Really bad for
      the cache and god knows for what else...
      Is it worth all the trouble???  I don't need that!

Tue Jun 15 01:25:40 MEST 1999

    - Changed .specs file again.  I previously changed alevt.spec
      instead of alevt.spec.in :-(

Mon Jun 14 23:45:48 MEST 1999	(1.4.9)

    - Made a very simple capture program (alevt-cap).  Just collects
      the given pages and writes them to disk in ASCII.
      I will only accept bug reports/fixes, no enhancement requests 
      at the moment *g*
      (I can't believe it; I even wrote a man page...)
    - Changed the subpage delimiter on the command line from '/' to '.'
      The old one ('/') is still accepted.  (Reason: alevt-cap uses
      the page number as part of the filename and a / is inconvenient.
      And I already wanted to let you enter subpages with the keypad
      and the '.' would be a nice key for that.)
    - Tweaked the .specs file...  (Btw, alevt-date and alevt-cap should
      not be installed in the X11 tree.)

Thu Jun 10 22:13:40 MEST 1999

    - moved the hamming decoding and associated table to hamm.c
    - played with pkt26 to support polish stations.  not finished.

Tue Jun  8 21:00:42 MEST 1999

    - Added -[no]bell option.  And the 'b' key.
    - Replaced all xio_bell calls with appropriate status messages.

Sat Jun  5 00:42:19 MEST 1999	(1.4.8)

    - Shit.  Just after the release I found a bug.  The header line
      isn't updated as it should :-(  (Just affects parallel mode
      transmission, so no new version, yet.)
    - Created mailing list.  Either go to http://alevt.listbot.com/
      or write mail to alevt-subscribe@listbot.com.
    - Added bttv-patch to the contrib dir for those who don't want
      to wait for bttv-0.6.5.

Fri Jun  4 17:19:41 MEST 1999	(1.4.7)

    - Added autodetection of VBIBUF_SIZE (only with newer bttv, 0.6.5).
    - Forgot to close vbi_fd in vbi_close :-/
    - Made ERC on by default.  If the page has no errors it
      costs nothing and if it has you'll turn it on anyway.
    - Changed parameters of EV_HEADER.
    - Removed XAWTV_HACKS.
    - Updated some docu.
    - Modified the contrib samples to reflect previous API changes.

Fri May 28 20:16:44 MEST 1999

    - Added status messages.
    - Added EV_TIMER event.
    - Added channel change detection (only with newer bttv, 0.6.5).
      Sends EV_RESET event.  The XAWTV_HACKS can be removed *phww*.
      Now the cache is automatically cleared if you switch to a
      new channel.  It even works with a SAT receiver connected to
      Video-In.

Thu May 27 23:54:32 MEST 1999	(1.4.6 unofficial)

    - Cache reset didn't reset npages and hi_subno.
    - Added XAWTV_HACKS, that is: alevt scans for a window with
      the _XAWTV_STATION property and registers for property changes.
      Result: when switching channels in xawtv, the cache is cleared.
      (This is just an ugly hack.  Xawtv must already be running
      when alevt is started.  If you quit and restart xawtv, it no
      longer works.  There's no method to detect if the monitored
      xawtv is really the one controlling our /dev/vbi, etc...)
      Added on request of Paul Ortyl <ortylp@key.net.pl>.
    - Added error reduction circuit.  It's part of the cache.
      Errors in a new page are replaced by characters/lines from
      an already cached (older) page.  May be toggled by pressing
      'e' (editor is now on 'E').  It's not enabled by default
      because it takes some CPU time.  Idea by Paul Ortyl.
    - TODO: clean up.  document new features.  add status messages.

Sun May 23 19:13:07 MEST 1999	(1.4.5)

    - New spec file from Karsten Hopp <karsten.hopp@delix.de>
    - Changed it even further *g*
    - Fixed a bug with graphics selection of double height lines.
    - Documented the -oldbttv option in the man page.  Now it's in
      every page.  This should finally halve the mails I get.
      (For the other halve I have to write alevt-capture *g*)

Sat May  8 02:41:21 MEST 1999

    - Ehhh, changed u32 typedef from unsigned long to unsigned int.
      Same for s32.  The Alpha's longs are 64 bits.
      Thanks to Sdruddin Rejeb <rejeb@dpmail.epfl.ch>.
      (There's something strange with this in the X libs.  They are
      sometimes very lazy about ints and longs.  Someone with an
      Alpha should check the cut & paste, both, text and graphics
      selections.)

Thu Apr 29 22:38:37 MEST 1999

Mon Mar 29 01:23:06 MEST 1999	(1.4.4)

      (found the stuff on the website http://www.penguin.cz/~marvin/ of
      Daniel Smolik <smolikdan@email.cz>.  I don't know if he is the one
      who made the font).

    - fixed 'clear cache'.  no longer removes the help pages.

      the timer task won't be killed on exit.

    - I'm frustrated!  BTTV_VERSION doesn't work on /dev/vbi.  So no
      autodetection of driver version.  Added -fuckbttv option instead.

    - added concept of parent and child windows.  now, the middle mouse
      button changes the contens of the child window.  if there isn't
      one, it is created.
    - Middle mouse button on x/y (subpage cycling) selects the previous
      subpage.  (updating the child with subpages is hairy...)
