[Readline-specific changelog.  Descriptions of changes to the source are
 found in the bash changelog.]

				    6/9
				    ---
Makefile.in
	- quote value of ${INSTALL_DATA} when passing it to makes in
	  subdirectories

				    7/1
				    ---
Makefile.in
	- don't pass INSTALL_DATA to a make in the `doc' subdirectory; let
	  autoconf set the value itself in the Makefile
	- removed a stray `-' before $(RANLIB) in the `install' recipe

doc/Makefile.in
	- add a VPATH assignment so the documentation is not remade if it's
	  already up-to-date in the distribution

configure.in
	- call AC_SUBST(LOCAL_LDFLAGS), since Makefile.in contains
	  @LOCAL_LDFLAGS@

				    7/9
				    ---

config.h.in
	- add define lines for STRUCT_WINSIZE_IN_SYS_IOCTL and
	  STRUCT_WINSIZE_IN_TERMIOS

configure.in
	- call BASH_STRUCT_WINSIZE to look for the definition of
	  `struct winsize'

				   7/17
				   ----
configure.in
	- call AC_MINIX

config.h.in
	- add define line for AC_MINIX

				   7/18
				   ----
Makefile.in
	- add `install-shared' and `uninstall-shared' targets

				    8/4
				    ---
Makefile.in
	- install and uninstall libhistory.a in the `install' and
	  `uninstall' targets

				    9/4
				    ---
configure.in
	- bumped LIBVERSION up to 2.1.1, indicating that this is patch
	  level 1 to release 2.1


				   9/16
				   ----
Makefile.in
	- `make distclean' now descends into the `examples' subdir

doc/Makefile.in
	- the `distclean' and `maintainer-clean' targets should remove
	  Makefile

examples/Makefile.in
	- added the various clean targets

				    4/2
				    ---
configure.in
	- bumped LIBVERSION up to 2.2

				   4/18
				   ----
[readline-2.2 released]

				   4/20
				   ----
Makefile.in
	- make `libhistory.a' a dependency of `install'
	- fixed a typo in the recipe for `install' that copied libreadline.a
	  to libhistory.old right after installing it

				   4/27
				   ----
doc/Makefile.in
	- install {readline,history}.info out of the source directory if
	  they are not found in the current (build) directory -- only an
	  issue if the libraries are built in a different directory than
	  the source directory

				    5/1
				    ---
support/shobj-conf
	- script from the bash distribution to do shared object and library
	  configuration

shlib/Makefile.in
	- new directory and makefile to handle building shared versions of
	  libreadline and libhistory, controlled by support/shobj-conf

				    5/7
				    ---
doc/Makefile.in
	- set SHELL to /bin/sh, rather than relying on make to be correct

				   5/14
				   ----
savestring.c
	- new file, moved from shell.c, for backwards compatibility

Makefile.in, shlib/Makefile.in
	- make sure savestring.c is compiled and added to libreadline and
	  libhistory

[THERE ARE NO MORE #ifdef SHELL LINES IN THE C SOURCE FILES.]

				   5/15
				   ----
README
	- updated description of shared library creation for the new scheme

[THERE ARE NO MORE #ifdef SHELL LINES IN ANY OF THE SOURCE FILES.]

Makefile.in
	- bumped SHLIB_MAJOR up to 4 since we've augmented the library
	  API
	- rlconf.h is now one of the installed headers, so applications can
	  find out whether things like vi-mode are available in the installed
	  libreadline

				   5/20
				   ----
configure.in
	- changed RL_LIBRARY_VERSION to 4.0 to match the version of the
	  installed shared libraries

				    6/5
				    ---
rlstdc.h
	- new file

Makefile.in
	- rlstdc.h is now one of the installed headers

				    8/3

Makefile.in
	- broke the header file install and uninstall into two new targets:

	- install and uninstall depend on install-headers and uninstall-headers
	  respectively
	- changed install-shared and uninstall-shared targets to depend on
	  install-headers and uninstall-headers, respectively, so users may
	  choose to install only the shared libraries.  I'm not sure about
	  the uninstall one yet -- maybe it should check whether or not
	  the static libraries are installed and not remove the header files
	  if they are

	- make sure that compat.o/compat.so are built and linked apppropriately

support/shobj-conf
	- picked up bash version, which means that shared libs built on
	  linux and BSD/OS 4.x will have an soname that does not include
	  the minor version number

				   11/13
