* Style Actions can now be renamed. This had been magically missing
  for quite a while. Reported by J. Jordan.
* Default (start-up) directories can now be set to "From History",
  which will simply show the paths visible when gentoo was quit.
  Suggested by J. Jordan.
* Reworked internal handling of basic selection functionality; the
  problems for users of the "System Default" Control key setting
  should now be gone. Please test. Reported initially by F. Abbate.
* Added view support for rar archives to default config. Requires
  "unrar" command.


0.11.45
* Fixed logic error in Move that caused it to incorrectly fail when
  moving in the same filesystem (and be very sneaky about it unless
  you were using FAM). Also made it stop trying to avoid "needless"
  directory rescanning. First reported by M. Baxter, I think. 
* Fixed broken formatting string in MkDir command's overwrite init.
  Reported by M. Zaripov.
* The Configure command's option text was untranslatable. Fixed,
  and translated it into Swedish. Reported by M. Zaripov.
* gentoo no longer tries to copy attributes for smlinks. Guess why.
  Thanks to M. Zaripov for reminding me.
* Updated Russian translation, from M. Zaripov.


0.11.44
* Gave all (hopefully) commands a general overhaul regarding how
  they deal with existing destinations and overwriting. Previously
  many commands failed, now I hope most of them actually work.
  NOTE: This means that copying a zero-byte file over a directory
        holding your Nobel Prize research will happily delete the
        directory and then copy the file. Of course it will ask you
        first. Previously many such type-mismatched operations just
        failed. This is better, but more dangerous. Beware.
  Copy does not delete an existing dir when copying a source *dir*
  of the same name; in that case the contents are merged. And MkDir
  does not delete an existing correctly-named directory, either.
* Updated Russian translation, thanks to M. Zaripov.
* Copying a symlink no longer alters its contents. Previously gentoo
  tried being "smart" and updating relative links when copying to a
  new home. This is no longer done. Suggested by M. Zaripov.
* gentoo can now enter directories whose names contain colon (":")
  characters.
* Added ability to Copy, CopyAs, Clone, Move and MoveAs named FIFOs.
  This had been mysteriously overlooked in previous releases, and is
  still missing for local sockets, actually.
* Split command now reports failure better, e.g. if destination is
  read-only.
* No longer shows About window if no config found. Seemed pointless.
* Added support for passing commands to run as arguments when start-
  ing gentoo. It's the -r (or --run) option, try "gentoo -rQuit". :)
* gentoo should now handle directory names with single quotes (')
  in them a lot better. Pointed out by T. Van Remortel.
* No longer crashes when trying to save a config containing an
  empty (no command) keybinding. Instead, the incomplete binding
  is (silently) dropped. Reported by CooDy.
* Fixed bug that caused focusing to appear in both panes at the
  same time after certain operations (Copy etc). Thanks, CooDy.


0.11.43
* The fix in 0.11.42 was actually commented out. No comment on why.
* Removed even more backup files, from the po/ directory.


0.11.42
* Added missing initializer that, depending on luck and phase of
  the moon, caused gentoo to crash at startup in dir scanner. Thanks
  to M. Haase for mailing me gdb output, helping me track it down.
* The {Is} string input code now supports all brace codes in its
  default string setting, except for {I}. So, you can say something
  like 'echo {Is:"Filename"="{fQ}"}' to get a dialog with an input
  field, defaulting to the first selected file's name (the new 'Q'
  modifier to {f} turns of quoting). Suggested by M. Baxter.
* Command sequence pop-up dialog help was wrong for {It}.
* Had forgotten version number update in gentoo.1x man page. :)
* Cleaned out spurious backups, and talked my editor out of making
  more. Reported by O. Braun.


0.11.41
* DpFocusISrch now reverts to previously focused row, if any, when
  cancelled by Escape or ^G.
* Directory scanning function completely rewritten. No longer has
  a fatal race condition, should be more robust now. A little bit
  more costly in terms of memory, but that is really negligible.
* Files smaller than the set Hex-Check First threshhold can now be
  hex-checked, as well. Less reliable, but still an improvement.
* The "Append -> Destination on Links" text is suppressed if the
  link target could not be determined due to access restrictions.
* Error-reporting when trying to enter disallowed directory fixed.
* The source-contains-dest check (0.11.36) was a bit overzealous,
  as reported by M. Baxter. Directory cloning should work again.
* Home and End keys scroll textviewer to top and end, respectively.
* Change back to start directory just before exit. Helps profiling.


0.11.40
* Removed compile warnings for type mismatch in sizeutil.c.
* Fixed another untranslatable string (aargh!), this time in the
  Delete command options. Thanks M. Zaripov for reporting.
* Updated Russian translation.
* SelectRE now only opens the dialog if it lacks a "bareword" arg-
  ument, any other arguments will be processed first. Previously
  they were ignored. Change suggested by M. Bunkus.
* Implemented focusing by incremental search, DpFocusISrch is the
  command name. Type to search, escape, enter or ^G to exit. Cursor
  keys up/down and page up/down still work. Suggested by M. Bunkus.
  See docs/scratch/command_args.txt, too.


0.11.39
* Fixed a mistranslation in the Swedish po file.
* Certain command dialog button labels were untranslatable (for
  instance ChMod's and Link Clone's). Reported by M. Zaripov.
* Added Russian translation(s), courtesy of M. Zaripov.


0.11.38
* Failure to copy attributes (dates, protection flags, and owner)
  can be optionally ignored. Helps copying of root-owned items.
  Reported by M. Zaripov.
* Fixed interesting interaction problem with FAM rescanning that
  broke MkDir's "Focus New Directory?" option. I guess nobody uses
  that, since I discovered it by mistake.
* Focusing sometimes was lost when entering a new directory.
* Protection for copied directories was incorrectly set.
* Delete command can now optionally alter protection of target and
  target's parent dir, if delete failed due to access restrictions.
  See command options for Delete command, and be careful.


0.11.37
* File sizes were still incorrectly handled as "gint" values in a
  couple of places in the pane formatting code. This lead to bogus
  numbers for files over 2 GB in size. Now uses guint64. Reported
  by Willi Wurzer.
* The Information command no longer blocks while sizing directories.
  Instead, the window opens up at once and is updated in the back-
  ground. Much nicer for /usr/portage on Gentoo Linux, heh. :)
* Deleted a couple of very obsolete (non)issues from the BUGS file.
* Join commmand output defaults to first input name, with any trail-
  ing (hexa)decimal number and final period removed. Cursor starts
  before final remaining period.
* Fixed bug that prevented {f} and {F} codes from properly emitting
  filenames containing backslashes.
* The Information command now shows size in number of blocks, too.


0.11.36
* Directory copying has been changed. It no longer first deletes
  the destination; the copy operation is instead a "merge" of the
  source and destination directories. You will not get overwrite
  prompts when source and destination directories collide, only for
  non-directories in the destination.
* Directory copying now also checks if the destination is contained
  in the source dir, and disallows the operation. Previously, doing
  a copy of e.g. "/tmp" to "/tmp/test" would likely crash and burn.
  The checking is currently done on a file name basis only, and you
  can fool it by symlinking. Please don't do that. :)
* Buttonsheet button labels now support the use of an underscore
  to indicate that the following character is a keyboard accel-
  erator. Note: this is *purely* visual, you still need to set up
  the keyboard shortcut in the Buttons config. E.g.: "_Quit". For
  an actual underscore in a label, double it ("__"). Worsens the
  layout a bit, but I think it's worth it anyway.
* Added a Play action property to the Sample root style. It just
  calls the play_sample user command, which in turn runs aplay.
* Implemented a thing called "Click-M-Click", which I believe
  stands for "click, move, click". It's a simple mouse gesture,
  and was in Directory OPUS on the Amiga. See the FAQ for details.
  Sample config triggers archive extract and dir open.


0.11.35
* Brought the copyright in About into 2003. :)
* Copying now also copies owner and group information, except for
  symbolic links. If you really need it for links, let me know.
  Also note that copying owner info requires root access, and that
  group copying is very limited for non-root users. See chgrp(2).
* Hopefully made Copy signal failure when target file doesn't have
  full size, which in turn should help Move behave better.
* Added an option to always save configuration on exit, which does
  away with the dialog. Kind of silly, but easy to implement.
* Changed logic in internal dir-copy code, so it doesn't fool itself
  into thinking it fails quite as easily. Note: when copying a dir,
  gentoo will first *delete* the destination, to ensure that the
  copy is indeed 1:1 and not a merge. BEWARE!
* The internal routine that rescans a pane no longer activates it,
  which means less flickering focus indication when the other pane
  rescans due to FAM detecting a modification in its contents.
* FAM rescans are now rate-limited, and will not occur more often
  than once every 300 milliseconds. This limit is not settable at
  runtime, you need to edit source (gfam.c:96) to change it.
* Added call to gtk_set_locale() during startup, suggested by
  tarot.
* Silently assume compiler is GCC, and disregard CFLAGS set by
  autoconf. In return, --enable-debug now disables optimizing.


0.11.34
* Added used bytes display to status line. Overdue, I guess.
* Reintroduced the [root] indicator in the main window title bar,
  for when you're running as root. Thanks, Roger Sondermann.
* Fixed horrible bug that seemed to be happy to just break the
  history saving when running as root, but should have done a
  lot more if there had been any justice in the universe. Thanks
  again, Roger.
* Incorporated an updated Polish translation. Thanks Slawomir.
* Made built-in pane menu translatable. This is temporary.
* Tweaked the man page (docs/gentoo.1x) a bit.


0.11.33
* Fixed stupid bug which made some dialogs not respond to being
  closed.
* Reimplemented the SelectToggle command, making it work in linear
  time as opposed to quadratic as previously. Paid in memory, as
  usual, but one bit per dir row isn't too much, in my opinion.
* Removed a forgotten trace 'echo' from configure.in. :)
* Tweaked the Information window slightly, since the two columns
  had somehow clung too close together. Reported by Felix Rabe.
* Added (partial) French translation, thanks to Philippe Rossi.
* Removed version number from window title.
* Did some minor tweaks for IRIX portability. Thanks Nik Vukovljak.


0.11.32
* Upgraded to newer versions of GNU gettext, Automake, and Auto-
  conf, for no apparent reason.
* Redid directory history slightly; it used to identify dirs pri-
  marily by their inode numbers, which failed if the filesystem
  reused them after a delete. Reported first by Olle Viksten.
* Made ClearSize respect GetSize's selection-preservation flag.
* Made the command line help texts (shown by --help) translatable.
* Fixed a problem with window name setting that occured when gentoo
  was running in internationalized mode.
* Reworked all code setting window titles; they were affected by
  similar locale-dependent problems. This feels like a GTK+ problem,
  but I think GTK+ 1.2.x isn't being developed any longer, so a work-
  around is probably all we get.
* Added a few missing command window titles to gentoo.pot.
* Improved layout in ChOwn's window, more label alignment.
* Default config will no longer recognize Perl source code if it's
  not in a file with a ".pl" suffix. This removes use of 'file' in
  the type checking, which is desirable for performance.
* Removed all uses of assert(), especially since all (!) of them
  depended on side-effects. Did anyone ever build gentoo with de-
  bugging disabled? That ought to have broken, horribly. Oops.
* Hacked a bit on the code that restores the vertical position when
  a directory is re-entered. Reported by "Michael".
* Slightly improved large file support. Still untested by me.
* Removed a couple of non-ANSI-isms that must've snuck in when I was
  looking the other way. Thanks, Josip.
* Changed test for __linux to __linux__ in mntent_wrap.c, after a
  tip from Debian maintainer Josip Rodin. Thanks.
* Added support for more modifiers to mouse button command bindings.
  You need to test which "Mod" is which key, though. Thanks, "Mark".
* Cleaned up cmd_generic.c, which is used for many of the standard
  file commands' dialog boxes. Dialog now done through dialog.c,
  which means button keyboard accelerators are now supported.
* Dialog position now configurable: either follow mouse as always,
  or center on screen. See Windows config page. Lost the source of
  the suggestion.


0.11.31
* Directory statistics display is now updated by DirRescan.
* RenameRE didn't enter the source directory, and thus could easily
  fail to find its working files. Fixed.
* MkDir no longer (internally) generates double-slashed names.
  Not a big deal, but they were visible in the path entry box.
* Added file recognition for socket and FIFO special files. Cute.
* gentoo now supports SGI's File Alteration Monitor (FAM) tech-
  nology, and will update panes if contents are changed by some
  other program. This is very nice, and recommended.
* Ran Julian Seward's masterpiece Valgrind on gentoo, at least a
  little. Found and fixed a couple of badnesses. Thanks. I'm sure
  there are more, but finding them takes lots of time. I'm far from
  claiming gentoo to be "Valgrind clean".
* Removed ill-guided use of g_error(); reported by Pehr Johansson.
* Improved quoting and fixed plain wrong syntax in SelectRE example
  input button, in default config. Not a big deal, though.
* Improved interaction between CopyAs, MoveAs, Rename, and SymLink's
  dialogs and the progress reporting window. Less annoying, now.
* CopyAs now has full progress reporting. Don't know why it hadn't.
* Information now shows item size using ticks every third digits.
  Adds another place to configure a tick character; not optimal, I
  will clean this up at a later date. Suggested by "[zorba]".
* MenuPopup now understands an "atfocus" bareword argument, which
  will locate the menu over the currently focused row. If no focus
  exists, it will center the menu in the active pane. Suggested by
  "[zorba]".
* Fixed silly buglet that had the "Left" configuration page tree
  item stuck looking selected.
* Fixed bug that reported errors twice on double-click. Really
  annoying if you use error dialogs, which I guess noone does.
* gentoo now attempts to enable large file support if the host
  supports it. This should make large files have correct sizes
  shown, and also improves GetSize on large (>2GB) directories,
  but is largely untested by the author.
* Accidentally found, and hopefully fixed, a long-standing stealthy
  bug, that caused gentoo to falsely report failure to read a dir-
  ectory, with a code 2 (file not found). Caused by dangling links.
* Removed premature "Menu" frame from buttons config. Thanks, emj.
* Tweaked configure.in so it respects CFLAGS being passed in. Re-
  ported by Frederick Reeve.


0.11.30
* Fixed yet another incredibly stupid bug that caused Copy to fail
  when copying nested directories. Introduced in 0.11.28, and re-
  ported by Matthias Haase.
* Window sizes in default config should now be (kind of) clamped
  to 800x600. Suggested by Roger Sondermann.
* Redesigned the configuration interface a bit, replaced the many
  nested tabbed notebooks with a cleaner and more modern-looking
  tree for navigation.
* Made the MkDir command slightly more robust.
* Tweaked the progress window somewhat, to reduce flicker.
* Added support for console beep on error. See Errors config page.
* Error reporting seemed to fail sometimes, in e.g. Rename. Fixed.
* Reimplemented DirRescan, for no particular reason.


0.11.29
* Fixed incredibly stupid bug that caused column header clicking to
  break (caused by the ghost scroll fix). Thanks, Roger Sondermann.
* Added Ctrl+L as shortcut to path entry (along with shift+Return).


0.11.28
* Improved a long-standing very annoying problem, which caused a pane
  to react by scrolling sideways when a quick vertical drag-select
  was done. The fix isn't quite 100%, but it's better now at least.
* Fixed subtle bug in glob-to-regular expression translation code
  which would break SelectRE for a pattern like "*.[ch]". Reported
  by Jean-Yves Lefort.
* When copying a directory, if the destination exists, it will now
  be completely deleted before the copying starts. This takes time,
  but should ensure a proper result. Reported by Razvan Stranschi.
* Input check button field {Ix} now supports being checked by default,
  and also knows about user-defined result texts. The complete syntax
  is: {Ix[:LABEL][*][=TRUETEXT,FALSETEXT]}. Clear, huh? OK, here's an
  example: {Ix:"gzip compress?"*="-czf","-cf"}. This would emit "-czf"
  into the command when checked, "-cf" when unchecked. The box would
  default to being checked, that's what the asterisk does.
* Modified default config's Module (for tracker music files) RE to
  also match against files named *.mod, and not only mod.*. Reported
  by "Mahen".


0.11.27
* MkDir now has an option to focus newly created directory, rather
  than entering it. If disabled, gentoo will scroll the pane to
  show the newly created directory. Suggested by Ernest Beinrohr.
* If you entered "20 kb", just like that, in the Split size box,
  you got 20 bytes. Case-sensitivity is like that. It's nicer now.
* Fixed bug where SelectRow on an already selected row was stupidly
  thinking it could select it again. Reported by Kamil Burzynski.
* Automounting now tries "/mountpoint/" if "/mountpoint" failed,
  and vice versa. Should now work for both pane doubleclick and
  TAB-completed paths, regardless of /etc/fstab format. Yay.
* Redid much of the internal logic for entering a new directory,
  so that it's now possible to enter e.g. "/mountpoint/a/b/c",
  and actually have gentoo first automount "/mountpoint", then enter
  the dir. Previously this would fail if the device wasn't mounted.
* Investigated, found a reason, and speeded up the SelectNone command
  by a factor of, oh, I don't know. Some big number, no doubt.
* Finally realized how to adjust labels, and cleaned up the layout
  in the Information window a bit using this new knowledge.


0.11.26
* Fixed a XML parsing weakness which made a button label containing
  a backslash break config loading. Reported by Roger Sondermann.
* Fixed stupid race condition bug in child process handling, which
  sometimes caused a crash in "kill previous instance". Reported by
  Joakim Larsson.
* Removed almost 300 redundant calls to gtk_widget_show(). This
  should shave a few bytes off the executable size, and perhaps
  even save a millisecond or so when building complex GUIs.
* Fixed weird bug where buttons got put above the panes when the
  interface was rebuilt after a config change.
* The middle bar in the progress report window used by Copy and
  other operations was behaving weirdly (always full). Fixed.
* Added display of elapsed time (in MM:SS format) as well as the
  current processing speed and ETA to the progress window.
* Progress window's directory size computation was broken. Fixed.
* DpFocusPath now understands a boolean "clear" option.


0.11.25
* Added a command, DpReorient, to switch pane split orientation
  between vertical and horizontal. Suggested by Roger Sondermann.
  Bound to Ctrl+R by default. See docs/scratch/command_args.txt.
* view_video now calls mplayer, not xanim. My choice. :)
* Added WMV as a recognized movie format. MPlayer handles it.
* You can now chose *not* to override the base background color
  in the panes (uncheck "Override Parent?" in the Root style).
  This hopefully allows a theme, or the GTK+ RC file, to control
  the default base background color. Thanks to Thomas Weberstaedt
  for making me investigate and improve this.
* Applied a couple of tiny patches from Oliver Braun, the FreeBSD
  maintainer, to help gentoo build cleanly on FreeBSD systems.
* Simplified automounting modes; it's now either on or off, the
  vague "rare" mount mode has been removed.
* Removed the specialized Shortcut feature and associated config
  page, and replaced it with another "sheet" of ordinary buttons.
  Very very nice, and long overdue.
* Removed incorrect assignment of Tab as shortcut for Split in
  the default config.


0.11.24
* Fixed a missing initialization that caused gentoo to crash on
  startup, at least on Cygwin. Silly me.
* Improved window grouping even more, should now include most
  commands, and the progress reporting windows, too.
* The "Pick Built-In" dialog used in Command configuration was
  violently yet stealthily broken. Detected by quarto.
* Incorporated a fix to BSD mounting code, from Michael Ewe.
* SelectAll no longer messes up status numbers. Thanks to Martin
  Stubenschrott for letting me know it used to.
* Rewrote Size content handling. Folded old "IQSize" behaviour into
  the Size type, added support for "ticks" every 3 digits. Suggested
  by someone on IRC whose name I've forgotten.


0.11.23
* Added support for laying out the two panes vertically rather than
  horizontally, as has so far been the only way. Handy when you want
  to see plenty of columns. Suggested by James Lucha.
* The SelectType command now understands a bareword argument, which
  is a glob for type names to select. You can do "SelectType Arch*"
  to select all archives in the source pane. Smooth, huh? :)
* Fixed bug in DirParent; parent of "/a/b/" is "/a", not "/a/b".
* Finally broke down and added tab-completion to the path entry
  fields. Might require some minor touching up, but works. Nice.
* The Copy command now says something when trying to copy a non-
  enterable directory, rather than just failing silently. Oops.
* Rename could falsely report failure under some conditions.


0.11.22
* Rewrote routine that creates the filenames used when interpolating
  {fup}-codes in commands. Now doesn't emit double slashes, which
  helps some (confused) apps to work better.
* Fixed a bug that made the case-insensitive numerically aware sorting
  fail to actually be case-insensitive. Reported by Rainer Koschnick.
* A subtle bug had crept in that broke automounting. Fixed.
* gentoo might now compile in Cygwin (on Win32), thanks to changes
  sent in by Erik Sittmann.
* gentoo now attempts to copy the protection (mode) flags for
  files, device nodes, and directories. That might have been overdue.
* Incorporated patch to widget code from J. Hanson's home page.
* Literally hundreds of minor clean-ups (removed needless casts,
  improved naming consistency, use glib types, and on, and on).
* Tweaked the way symlinks are displayed by the Information command.
* Fixed bug that made the option parser continue when a required arg
  was missing.


0.11.21
* 0.11.20 required all users to be named "emil", or they couldn't
  save their directory histories. This is not me trying to take
  over the world, I just neglected to change it before the release.
  Honest! Sorry. Reported by Roger Sondermann.


0.11.20
* The gentoorc sample config file is now built from a slightly
  better gentoorc.in template. The icon location might not come
  out correctly if you use the --datadir configure option, though.
* Fixed a missing include in the main gentoo.h header, which I
  believe caused date sorting to break. Thanks for the reports.
* Added yet one more compiler flag to gcc, hoping to avoid even
  getting the program built if an implicit function is used.
* Simple patch to help build on Linux/Alpha, handed to me by
  Josip Rodin, but originally from Christopher C. Chimelis.
* Fixed bug which caused failure to execute a (most likely miss-
  ing) external command to be reported twice.
* The directory history can now be saved, and thus made persistent
  between sessions. Suggested by Roger Sondermann. See option on
  the Dir Panes config page, sub-page "History". It's lonely.
* Added a section to the man page (docs/gentoo.1x--read it!)
  that talks about how the new persistent-history interacts with
  a pane's default directory, and stuff.
* Wrote a new, vastly more powerful, command argument parser. It
  gives better control over the initial paths shown. Nice.
* Inspired by talks on irc (#c, openprojects.net), I edited most
  uses of the <ctype.h> isXXX() macros. Cast to guchar is good.
* Inspired by a patch from Patricio Moracho, I added support for
  underlined keyboard accelerators in all (most?) dialog buttons.


0.11.19
* Mouse bindings ignore all modifiers except shift, control and
  alt at all times. Reported by Martin Udd´┐Żn.
* Fixed sloppy pointer-to-int cast that gave warning on 64-bit
  systems (Alphas). Reported by Jesse Perry.
* The Information command can now optionally display the output
  of 'file' in its window. Suggested by Christian Richter. Do
  note that this *requires* your 'file' command to support the
  "-f - -n" option combo. See configure.in for details.
* If executing a child process fails, gentoo now sometimes shows
  an error rather than just dying. This is an improvement.
* Added some more -W options to gcc, that scared out some sloppy
  code that got fixed (even in widgets/). I like killing warnings.
* Updated About's copyright for the new year. Time flies. :)
* RenameSeq no longer opens its window if there's no selection.
* Should now compile on NetBSD, too. Thanks to Pehr Johansson for
  the original patch.
* String input fields (created with '{Is}') can now be set to use
  asterisks to hide entered text. To do this, add an asterisk in
  the definition, after the label part, e.g.: '{Is:"Password"*}'.
* gentoo now supplies the window manager with a prettier icon,
  and now also groups its windows, most of the time at least.


0.11.18
* Fixed internal quoting bug that prevented actions with spaces
  in their names from executing properly. Thanks Chavdar Botev.
* Even more const declarations in stuff dealing with XML.
* Fixed spelling error in one of RenameRE's error messages. :)
* Fixed spelling error in MoveAs's overwrite warning. :)
* Added new command called RenameSeq to rename files into numb-
  ered sequences. Very handy when working with images from a
  digital camera, for example. No command args support yet.
* Applied patch that hopefully makes gentoo compile on Alpha
  boxes running Linux. Thanks to C. C. Chimelis, P. Slootman
  and J. Rodin who all contributed.
* Applied a patch from Ryan Weaver that makes gentoo easier to
  package for people using RPM. Thanks.
* If running as root, [root] appears in window title. Suggested
  by Mads Villadsen.
* Poked around a bit in the man page (docs/gentoo.1x).
* Fixed my e-mail address in the AUTHORS file. I'm Swedish!


0.11.17
* gentoo now configures using autoconf. Many thanks to Andreas
  Kloeckner for providing the patch that made this possible.
  See notes in README.ac for details (i.e. bugs).
* Added the "Don't Touch Directories?" option to the ChMod
  command. Useful when you want to clear the 'executable' bit
  from all files in nested directories. Removing it on nested
  directories themselves generates access errors, of course.
* Mode bits for directories created with MkDir are now more
  conservative (specifically, the 'sticky' bit is not set).
* Added "unmount" action to directories, handy for mountpoints
  (since gentoo never unmounts until you quit).
* Finally figured out a way to track the position of the split
  between the left and right panes, and so made it configurable.
  See the (new) "Pane Split" subpage on the "Dir Panes" config
  page. New effort triggered after suggestion by Marcin Orlowski.
* Added (quaint) hint in the "OK" button of the About window,
  hopefully indicating the existance of more information.
* Minor internal cleanups in mntent-wrapping code. Nothing that
  is user visible, but it makes me feel better. :)
* Added option (on new under-used config page "Errors") to get
  a dialog window reporting each error. This might be a bit more
  obvious than the subtle text in the status bar. Suggested by
  Marcin Orlowski <carlos@amiga.com.pl>.
* References to XML nodes are now "const"-declared here and
  there. Not user-visible, but (again) makes me happier.
* There's now a gentoo project registered at SourceForge. Please
  use <http://www.sourceforge.net/projects/gentoo> to report bugs,
  if you don't feel like mailing reports straight to me.


0.11.16
* The clean-target now removes the gentoo binary, which might
  help me make smaller release archives in the future...
* Example config now recognizes XBM images, too. :)
* Noticed that the SelectAll command reset a pane's vertical
  position to zero, which annoyed. Redid implementation, less
  obviously. I suspect a bug in the GtkCList widget. Not filed.
* Also noticed that the vertical-position-buffering for the
  directory history didn't really work at all. Better now?
* Fixed probable memory leak in icon handling code.
* Added first attempt at detecting, heuristically, when trying
  to copy (and move) a directory recursively into itself. The
  offending operation will now give an "Invalid argument" error.
  Will not work for non-canonical (i.e., linked) paths. :(
  Reported by Vadim Gagin <gagin@nm.ru>.
* Recompiled against glib/GTK+ 1.2.10.
* Fixed bug in path-construction for global config file.
* Added initial implementations of recursive ChOwn and ChMod
  commands. Requested by <charlie@arbornet.org>.
* Fixed bug that prevented the up/down arrows for Selected Content
  Types, in the Dir Panes config from working.
* Date preservation when copying directories was missing. Also
  added it for device copying.
* Brought About's copyright notice into 2001.


0.11.15
* Definition of demonstration SelectRE-work-a-like button command
  changed, since it was broken. Also added glob check button.
* Lack of internal quoting caused Dir{To,From}Other to fail on
  paths containing spaces, as did the shortcuts. Fixed.
* Changed appearance of check buttons {Ix} input dialog codes.
* Having lurked among the giants of comp.lang.c for at least five
  years, I finally realized that identifiers whose names begin
  with an underscore immediately followed by an upper case letter
  are reserved for the implementation. Since I, for some historical
  reason, tend to use structure tags formed like that, gentoo was
  very much in violation of the holy scripture of ISO C. This has
  now been fixed, of course (except in widgets/). Feels good. :)
* Being urged on by an enthusiastic Brazilian gentoo user, I caved
  in and went through the code, marking all strings suitable for
  translation using gettext. A translation to my own mother tongue,
  Swedish, is included in the locale/sv/ directory. gentoo's I18N
  support is very early, and by default it will not build with it
  included. I need help with autoconfig before doing that.
* Capped the percentage number in the textviewer at 100%. :)
* Left-adjusted the filename in the progress window. :)
* Improved behavior when an operation (such as Copy or Move) is
  cancelled. Previously, it was not possible to correctly cancel
  if the files being copied were smaller than the copy buffer
  size, and the 'keep full-sized copy on error?' flag was on.
* A long operation can now be cancelled by simply closing the
  progress-reporting window.
* Made parsing of {Fup} (among other things, hopefully) work
  better when 'treat focus as selection?' flag is on. Sneaky.
* Test-compiled against glib and GTK+ version 1.2.8. Went fine.
* Fixed buglet that prevented modes (aka permissions) from being
  formatted correctly. Reported by Erik Johansson.
* Banged a bit on the page up/down response for the focus bar.
  Way less ugly implementation, and (I think) better behavior
  now. Still wish GTK+ permitted use of it's built-in focusing
  bar, though. :(


0.11.14
* Added support for extracting tar.gz, tar.bz2, and zip files to
  the example config. Select archive, right click, then choose
  the "extract" item in the "File Action" submenu.
* Due to an internal quoting problem, MkDir would fail to enter
  the created directory if the name contained spaces. Fixed.
* The Makefile no longer attempts to create a backup of the config,
  and only installs the supplied example if no old config exists.
* The ChOwn command now uses combo boxes rather than menus to
  display the system data, and also allows you to type in a
  user and/or group number or name directly. Way nicer.
* Brought back the 'grab' button in the window pos/size config,
  but only for the main window. Should make a few users happy. :)
* Altered the huge parent buttons' relief style; they now look
  more like wide borders, which JH and I find less distracting.
* Added an option (hidden away in the Command Options page,
  DpFocus tab) that makes gentoo move the focus row to the last
  row selected using the mouse. Only works if focusing is on.
* The MenuPopup command can now be bound to a keyboard key, just
  like any other command. Previously, it could only be bound to
  a mouse button. Bound to Ctrl+Space in example config.
* Added Ctrl+A and Shift+Ctrl+A as keyboard shortcuts for the
  [Select] All and None commands, respectively. :)
* Improved ANSI compliance by removing use of "str" as a prefix
  in function names. :)
* A pane's contents can now be sorted on any content type, not
  just those that are displayed. There is currently no way of
  changing to a non-displayed type without opening the config
  window, though.
* Touched up the sorting code somewhat, and while doing that
  noted that user and group names could not actually be sorted
  on as text. They sure can now.
* Fixed horrible bug in the {}-code parsing and handling, that
  made gentoo segfault when certain sequences of commands were
  run. Reported by T. Tilton.


0.11.13
* Fixed incredibly stupid bug (reported by plenty of people,
  it's nice to know people care :) which prevented the text
  viewer window from closing when it should. It's a two-liner.
* If you enable the "System Default" Control key mode in the
  dirpane config, it will now work.
* There was some broken logic related to quitting and the dialog
  that asks about saving changed configs. Fixed that, and also
  cleaned up the code significantly, removing duplicate stuff.


0.11.12
* I'm reasonably sure I fixed a bug which caused a crash if you
  hit enter after entering an *empty* directory using the key-
  board-controlled focusing mechanism.
* Added support for tall, thin, parent buttons along the outer
  edges in the panes. Enable through the "Huge Parent Button?"
  checkbox in the config. The position and action of these is
  currently not configurable; it's always outer edge & DirParent.
* Incorporated alternative implementation of the GtkLabel widget
  provided by Johan Hanson. This label implementation is only used
  for the status line in the top of the window, which reportedly
  had refresh-problems with some pixmap-based GTK+ themes.
* Redid the code for the textviewer, which was very old and some-
  what confused. This might make it support mouse wheel scrolling
  better. Since I don't have a wheelie mouse, I can't test it...
* Fixed tiny bug which caused GTK+ warnings if you hit TAB in the
  command selection dialog without having typed anything first.
* Implemented a Join command, to counter the (still incomplete)
  Split command. Pretty neat, with DnD reordering.
* gentoo can now optionally ignore the state of the NumLock key
  when parsing keyboard and mouse input. Enable the check button
  in the bottom of the Controls config page. Note that only the
  input event is filtered, not the definition (do not use NumLock
  in actual mappings with this flag on).
* New version of the odscrolledbox widget, provided by Johan
  Hanson as always. Should fix some smudgy redrawing problems.
* Brought the (c) in the About box into the 21th century, added
  acknowledgement (and mail address) of Johan Hanson's work.
* Added recognition and viewing of LHa compressed files to the
  example config. Requires the 'lha' external command.
* gentoo can now remember the position and size of the config and
  textviewer windows, in addition to the main window. See config
  page labeled "Windows" (was "Pos & Size" previously). Eh, also
  see the BUGS file, since this feature has a few problems still. :(
* Tweaked code that dealt with 64-bit stuff; gentoo should now
  compile better on Linux/Alpha platforms.
* Selected content in the right-hand list in the Dirpane config
  page can now be reordered directly, by dragging. You can still
  use the up/down buttons below the list, like always.
* Er, not a fix per se, but this version of gentoo has been
  compiled and executed using GTK+ 1.2.7. No extensive tests,
  though.


0.11.11
* Tweaked the FileAction command slightly: now it will stop running
  the action if the selection is empty. This helps when you run a
  command containing e.g. a {Fu} code on more than one file, since
  it will then just run the command once, then stop since the {Fu}
  "consumed" the entire selection. Hopefully this is not a bad thing.
* The GetSize command no longer loses track of the pane's vertical
  position.
* The pane centering on startup was changed back to the pre-0.11.10
  behavior, since the "fix" didn't help the user who reported the
  problem. Weird.
* Rewrote core file copying routine, used by Copy, CopyAs, Move,
  and other commands. It now handles "magic" files whose length
  looks like zero (like most files in the /proc filesystem). It's
  also shorter, simpler, and possibly a tiny abit faster.
* Fixed semi-obscure bug in the Split command; it wouldn't close
  output files on failed writes. Oops.
* In an attack of POSIX panic, I removed all my symbols whose names
  ended in _MAX, leaving only standard ones. Touched ~130 places.
* The SelectRE command now lets you chose what column content you
  wish to match against. This is sometimes useful, for example you
  could use the following command to select all rows whose files
  have an odd size: 'SelectRE glob=0 full=0 content=size [13579]$'.
     See "docs/scratch/command_args.txt" for a brief table of
  content names.
* Removed all uses of stdlib's malloc() & free(), replacing them
  with glib's g_XXX work-alikes, making the code more consistent.
* Added tooltips to the pane control widgets (the parent button,
  the path entry field, and the cryptic 'H' hide button).
* RTFM:ed a bit, and fixed example config's "view_man" command to
  stop emitting control codes for bold and underline. This makes
  it work better with gentoo's viewer. Unsure about portability.
* Added type, style, and view support for AVI and MPEG video clips
  to the example config. Both use 'xanim' for view. Untested. Also
  added support for IFF-ILBM bitmap images, through 'xv' as always.
* Added a new command, DpFocusPath, which moves GTK+'s input focus
  to the current pane's path entry box. Bound to shift+Return in
  the example config. Call with select=1 to select contents, too.
* Fixed buglet which made it annoying to bind commands to Return,
  since the config window's default button ("OK") would trigger.


0.11.10
* Got mail from Jesse Perry <jap@unx.dec.com>, reporting problems
  building gentoo on an Alpha, running Tru64. Luckily, the report
  (and followups) included lots of detail and helpful hints, so I
  went over the offending code. Hopefully it works now.
* I still got the expand/collapse tracking in the Styles config
  page wrong. <HOMER>Duh!</HOMER> Fixed again. This time, for sure!
* Wrote a new command, RenameRE. It provides two ways of doing search
  and replace over selected file names, and then renaming the files.
  Learn about in "docs/scratch/renamere.txt". Recommended reading!
* Fixed bug which prevented an error from the Rename command (and
  others, no doubt) from showing up.
* Did a long-overdue, minimal, change in the way the active pane gets
  hilighted, now uses Johan Hanson's code in "colorutil.c". Should
  work better if you're running a themed GTK+.
* Pressing return after entering a path name now causes that path
  to be entered, instead of (uselessly) popping up the combo menu
  showing directory history. Oops.
* When running a command bound to a key, the key press signal is
  no longer propagated to GTK+; gentoo consumes it. This makes things
  work better when you bind stuff to e.g. cursor keys, which are
  used by GTK+ to control focus. A neat one-line fix.
* The 'view_tar_bzip2' command in the example config has been made
  more portable (uses --use-compress-prog=bzip2 rather than -y).
* If you attempt to DirRescan a directory which no longer exists,
  you will get an informative message. Better than silence.
* Included a new icons package from Johan Hanson (<johan@tiq.com>).
  There are around 20 new icons, including a very cute Commodore
  logo for SID music files! Check them out in the icons/ subdir!
* Fixed a portability problem in dirpane.c; a reference to strncmp().
* Upgraded my home development machine to GTK+/glib 1.2.6, which
  went fairly smooth. It exposed a bug in the config GUI, though.
* The centering of the panes is now done later during startup,
  since one user reported problems with it. This is too bad, since
  it now looks kind of worse during startup. :(


0.11.9
* Increased XML compliance in config format somewhat, by adding
  support for the &quot; and &apos; special sequences (for example,
  the text <'"'> would now be saved as "&lt;&apos;&quot;&apos&gt;").
* Fixed a bug which caused absolute environment variables embedded
  in paths to resolve incorrectly. Reported by J. Hanson.
* Possibly improved handling of symbolic links with DirParent.
  There is currently no way to go to the physical parent directory,
  but that will come.
* Includes new versions of the custom widgets by J. Hanson, which
  seem to fix a minor problem with "sticky prelight".
* Improved behaviour when entering directories whose names begin
  with tilde. To use tilde-notation for home dir lookup, the tilde
  should be the first character of the path.
* Discovered the G_GNUC_EXTENSION glib macro, and added it where
  I have explicit 64-bit stuff going on. gentoo now compiles without
  warnings again, at least on my system (using GCC 2.8.1).
* Rewrote the guts of the DirParent command. Should now correctly
  cope with a path of e.g. "/home/user/./././.".
* Fixed a errno-busting bug in fileutil module, which caused the
  Move command to report an incorrect error on failure (and, I'm
  sure, lots of other weird things as well).
* Moving an empty file to a directory where you can't write no
  longer removes the (empty) source file.
* Fixed silly buglet in the Information command that caused a
  separator line to overdraw the "Contents" directory info line.
* The Move command now refreshes both panes if it succeeded in
  moving at least one file, regardless of error status (before,
  it only refreshed panes if no error occured while moving).
* Fixed an internal command invocation argument passing bug (buzz)
  which prevented DirParent from working on paths containing spaces.
  Reported by Mike Tsai <akirarat@tokyo-3.anime.ca>.
* Added the DpGotoRow command, after a suggestion by Jarle
  Thorsen <jthorsen@iname.com>. It allows you to scroll a pane
  so that a row whose name matches a specified regular expression
  is made visible. This command uses command arguments, so for the
  full story read "docs/scratch/command_args.txt" as usual. If you
  are patient, you can bind this command to the A-Z keys on the
  keyboard, and use those to quickly jump around in panes. It's fun!
* The Run dialog now shows how many built-in and user-defined
  commands there are in each of the subtrees it displays. :) Also,
  it retains the command line you enter between invocations.
* Filesystem FIFOs (named pipes) now have a 'p' rather than an 'f'
  in the first column of their "Mode, string" column. More ls-ish.
* Fixed a bug with "sticky tooltips" in the buttons config. Reported
  by Hannes Allmaier <allmaier@caramail.com>.
* Dialogs might possibly attempt to open a little bit closer to the
  mouse cursor now. I'm really not sure about that, though. :(
* If you start gentoo and it doesn't find its configuration file, the
  whining dialog will now tell you where it looked. This might make
  fixing the problem simpler, and feels nice in any case.
* The dirpane right-click menu is now context sensitive. Sort of. :)
  The "File Action" submenu will contain only those actions that are
  defined in _all_ currently selected rows, i.e. the intersection of
  those rows' styles' actions. Simple, huh? Try it, and you'll get the
  hang of it. Note: if you right-click without having a selection, the
  entire menu will be hidden (since it would be empty anyway).
* Added a SelectRow command, which either selects a row given its index,
  or selects the row last clicked. The latter is useful when run right
  before the "MenuPopup" command, and bound to the right mouse button.
  This combo sort of emulates Windows right-clicking, since the File
  Action menu will be updated depending on what was clicked. As always,
  read more about command arguments in "docs/scratch/command_args.txt".
  The supplied examplem config contains the mentioned combo in a
  command called "mouse_right", bound to shift+right mouse button.
* Slightly improved the internal icon creation code.
* Date comparisons for sorting are now done Right, using difftime(3). 
* Added support for check buttons to user-defined command input dialogs.
  To generate a checkbox labeled LABEL, enter {Ix:"LABEL"} in the
  command definition. A checked box will emit "TRUE" (sans quotes) to
  the command, an unchecked box "FALSE". Useful for boolean command
  keywords.
* Implemented a new dirpane sort flag: "Numerical Mode", which, when
  enabled, will cause sorting on names to deal with embedded numbers
  better. Will grok that "gentoo-0.9.11" sorts before "gentoo-0.11.9".
* Fixed a non-initialized variable which would sometimes conspire to
  cause great weirdness in affected pane and status bar on startup.
* Added a pretty neat option flag, which makes gentoo treat the focused
  row as a selection, if there is no other selection. You can find it
  on the "DpFocus" page in the "Command Options" config. It makes key-
  board-surfing around your filesystem a little bit smoother at times.
  Sort of suggested by Andrew Korn <korn@eik.bme.hu>. He wants more,
  though. :)
* Entering a directory with broken symbolic links should no longer
  result in a "file not found (2)" error being reported.
* Scrapped the browser-like history system introduced in 0.11.8, since
  it wasn't complete, and I didn't like it much. This version has the
  old simple combo history again. If you feel this really sucks, write
  me a mail (at <emil@obsession.se>, as always), and we can discuss how
  a better history system should work. As a consequence of this rewrite,
  the commands DirForward and DirBackward are no longer supported.
* Installed GTK+ 1.2.4 on my home machine. Went pretty smoothly with
  gentoo, I didn't have to change anything.
* Now compiles with optimization (level -O2) by default. When stripped,
  the executable is a reasonable 319 KB on x86 systems (gcc 2.8.1).
* The File Style tree now tracks expanded/collapsed status of the
  styles better.


0.11.8
* Improved how RE matching of file types is done against links.
* Fixed a little problem that (I think) made "DirEnter ~" fail.
* Execution of a file should not require read rights. Duh.
* Style actions can now be empty. Very silly, but intuitive. :)
* I had accidentally forgotten to reimplement the style sorting
  (used when you sort on the Icon column) since redesigning the
  style system. J. Hanson noticed.
* Executing files not in the path (i.e. by double-clicking them
  in a pane) was broken in 0.11.7. J.H. kind of noticed.
* Added a "Skip All" button to the overwrite confirmation dialog.
  When clicked, it will automatically skip any further confirm-
  ation dialogs in the current action. Suggested by J.H.
* Added a new column content type: "block size", which shows the
  size in bytes of each item, but computes that byte count as
  (# of blocks in file) * (filesystem block size). This is some-
  times handy. Suggested by J.H...
* The SelectExt command had not been reimplemented for the new
  style system. Oops again.
* Got a patch from J. Rodin (<jrodin@jagor.srce.hr>) that should
  hopefylly make gentoo compile cleanly on Linux/Alpha again.
* Thanks to a bug report by G. O'Keefe <gok@netspace.net.au>,
  changing the style for a file type should now actually work. Eh.
* Rewrote the dialog subsystem again, totally changing both its
  interface and its semantics. This is the third incarnation of this
  piece of code. It keeps shrinking, which is good.
* Changed the semantics of the SelectType command: it is now designed
  to be bound to a mouse button (see below). The behaviour it now
  has was previously not available in the form of a command.
* It is now possible to bind commands to clicks of mouse buttons
  in panes. This means that you no longer need to have DirParent
  on the middle button! Note that the mouse bindings take priority
  over normal (GTK+ standard) pane clicking, so mapping something
  to an unmodified left mouse button is typically not a good idea.
* Added a command called MenuPopup, which currently always causes
  the dirpane menu to pop up. This command is meant for use with
  the new mouse command mapping, and will not operate if bound to
  e.g. a key or regular command button.
* Redid dirpane directory history handling completely. The new code
  is better, but lags a little in the interface department. :(
  There is now a pair of back- and forward buttons (that look like
  left and right arrows, respectively) to the left of the path entry
  field. These buttons move through the history. When you see a tiny
  downward pointing black arrow in these buttons, try clicking on
  them with the right mouse button. :) There is no longer a general
  "old directories combo", sorry about that. If you really miss it,
  please let me know (just mail <emil@obsession.se>) and I will get
  around to implementing something similar sooner...
* Fixed a buglet which caused clicks on the "Clear" button on the
  Button config page to be effectively ignored. Fix is 26 bytes.
* Added support for "pageprev" and "pagenext" movement arguments
  to the DpFocus built-in command. If you can't guess what those do,
  please read "docs/scratch/command_args.txt" for a free clue. :)


0.11.7
* Fixed bug in style handling for active pane indication. Reported
  by widget and icon author, J. Hanson (<johan@tiq.com>).
* Fixed a bug in dialog for selecting built-in command (seen in
  the Commands config), also reported by Johan.
* Fixed an infinite recursion bug in the sizeutil module.
* Fixed handling of directory sizes in Information command. Should
  now happily handle directories with more than 2 GB of contents.
* Totally rewrote the styles and cfg_styles modules, that deal
  with the file styles; roughly 2,000 lines of new code. The new
  style system is a *lot* more flexible than the old was, but pays
  with a bit of speed. Info in "docs/scratch/filestyles.txt".
* Fixed a bug which had the GetSize command accumulating sizes
  on each call, if its unselection flag was off.
* Improved handling of double click on already selected row.
* The Rename command no longer rescans the *destination* pane when
  it's finished. That's good, since it was a waste of time. :)
* Removed the ViewTextHex and ViewTextOrHex commands; you now get
  the same functionality by using "ViewText mode=hex" and
  "ViewText mode=auto", respectively. You can force text viewing
  by using "ViewText mode=text", but that is the default.
* Trying to execute a non-existant external command should now be
  much less prone to crash gentoo.
* Fixed a weakness in the mount support which made it fail on
  root mountpoints. Weird.
* Implemented (more or less) transparent support for symbolic
  links. The support is complemented by four new builtin commands:
  SymLink, SymLinkAs, SymLinkClone and SymLinkEdit. Read all (or
  at least some) about it in "docs/scratch/symlinks.txt".
* Resorting no longer messes up the selection. Oops.


0.11.6
* Fixed a long-standing bug in the icon selection dialog, which
  prevented it from displaying any icons. This bug never bit me,
  but always J. Minnberg, and he kept bugging me about it, so to
  speak. It had been there since 0.9.19. Fascinating.
* The GetSize command now has a flag (configurable through the
  Command Options page) that controls whether or not it deselects
  the directories after traversing.
* Rewrote some of the dirpane internals, especielly stuff having
  to do with sorting, and redisplaying a pane's contents. It's
  now a bit better structured, and I think a tad faster, too!
* Did some minor user interface improvements in the configuration
  window. All suggested by J. Hanson <johan@tiq.com>.
* The ChMod command now rescans the source pane, thus making any
  changes visible in gentoo, as well. Oops.
* The Delete command now shows progress, thus giving you at least
  a chance to cancel it. It also now knows how to get rid of FIFOs,
  sockets, and special device nodes in general.
* Implemented support for J. Hanson's *glorious* new button widget,
  which allows the use of two commands: depending on which mouse
  button you click (first or second (=middle)), the button will
  activate either the primary or secondary command. The widget also
  supports custom coloring on both back- and foreground on each of
  the two "faces". All in all, it's great! Thanks, Johan.
* Added a primitive XML node type for RGB colors, making their
  loading and saving in the config file both leaner and simpler.
* Built-in commands can now take arguments to modify their behaviour.
  Flexibility++! Read about it in "docs/scratch/command_args.txt".
* The SelectRE command now makes full use of command arguments, so
  you can have commands such as "SelectRE glob=true re=*.jpg". Also
  added two new options in the process.
* Removed the QuitNow command, since the very same effect can now
  be achieved by using "Quit dialog=false". Command args rule.
* DirEnter now takes an argument specifying the wanted path. This
  makes it possible to create normal buttons acting as shortcuts...
* Wrote a simple general color editing dialog, for buttons & styles.
* Fixed a little bug that would execute a command twice if it was
  both set to repeat and then invoked through a pane double-click.
* Added a couple of missing {}-codes to the pick dialog in the
  Commands config page ({fu}, {Fu}, {fd} and {Fd}). Please note that
  you can include any of "udp" with either of {f} and {F}. The total
  number of valid f-codes is therefore 2*8 = 16. Not all are included
  in the dialog. :)
* gentoo now computes a pane's total available & selected byte counts
  using explicit 64-bit arithmetic. Since this is not available in
  ANSI C, the code is slightly less ANSI-pure because of this. The
  upside is that having an 8-GB partition with 5.5 GB free now should
  show the correct numbers. Note that individual file sizes are still
  typically handled as 32-bit integers (unless you're on an Alpha,
  I think). Only *total* sizes are affected by this change. Also note
  that the change does not affect the GetSize command. The Information
  command might do a better job (but it is untested). Later...
* The command dialog window (shown by the Run command, and whenever
  you need to specify a command name in config) now does true Tab-
  activated command name completion.
* Fixed a weird buglet in the shortcuts config, having to do with
  changing the order of the shortcuts.
* Fixed a couple of confused memory allocation calls in buttons
  code. It hit when you tried to resize a row. Oops. :(
* Thanks to input provided by Alexander Moss Tahk (<tahk@mit.edu>),
  gentoo should now compile and run on OpenBSD. Extending this to
  other BSD's should be trivial (I hope).
* gentoo now supports a rudimentary form of keyboard navigation,
  thus hopefully forcing most people who mail me about gentoo to
  wish for something else. :) For more information about it, check
  out "docs/scratch/focusing.txt". The supplied example config is
  set up to use it (try up/down cursor keys, shifted up/down cursor
  keys, space, home, end, insert, and ctrl-L). Note that the sample
  config hence no longer has ActivateOther on space (but try Tab!).
* In a fit of extreme ambition, I rewrote almost all of the code
  for configuring dirpane contents. It's a *lot* cleaner now.
* While I was at it, I made the colors used in dirpanes in general
  (active pane and focusing) configurable, as well.
* You can now configure on what side of the pane the scrollbar
  should go.
* Fixed a little problem that caused a GTK+ warning when reentering
  the config if you exit it on the "Commands Options" page visible.
* Changing the width of a pane column by dragging it directly in
  the pane now counts as a config change (=> dialog on quit).


0.11.5
* Dialogs should now open closer to the mouse cursor (if supported
  by your window manager). Suggested by "Peter" <zed@linuxpower.org>.
* Command input dialogs ({I...}) were broken, and probably have been
  since 0.11.1. Reported by J. Minnberg <jonas@obsession.se>. Does
  nobody else *use* gentoo? :( Ah well.
* Any processes spawned by gentoo would be killed twice on quit; I
  really think once should be enough.
* When you re-run a asynchronous, kill-previous command, gentoo is
  now more patient with waiting for the previous instance to die.
* Did loads of code-cleaning (glib-ification, const-ifying, etc).
* Removed the (very obsolete) "docs/porting/" directory.
* The size shown by GetSize is now actually considered and added into
  the sum shown in the status bar when GetSize:d dirs are selected.
* GetSize now also computes the number of _blocks_ in the directory.
* Added a ClearSize command that makes gentoo forget a directory's
  "recursive" size and reset it to the actual filesystem size.
* Resorting a pane no longer confuses the selection information.
* Removed an annoying GTK+ warning from the progress reporting code.
* Added support for TARGA & TIFF images to the example config. :)
* If you change the "enter dir" flag in the MkDir window, this will
  be registered as a config change (=> confirm/save dialog on quit).
* Removed the pointless "OK" message which use to indicate success-
  ful command execution. Now the status text appears instead, thus
  giving useful information faster. No news is good news.
* The text viewing window can now be made smaller. :)
* If, when you click "Add" in the styles config page, the currently
  selected style is collapsed (its children are hidden), it is
  now expanded for you.
* The DirToOther and DirFromOther commands now clear the selection
  from the pane before replacing the pane's contents. This prevents
  a rather interesting selection-merging phenomenon from occuring.
* The DirEnter command now makes sure the row being entered is
  unselected first. Not all directories are double-clicked into...
* Fixed a buglet (fix is 12 bytes) that prevented the "..." button
  in the command config from showing available builtin commands.
* Added a short paragraph about sorting to the man page, taking
  extra care to plug Style (icon) sorting, since it's so cool. :)
* Discovered a weird lock-up with the command output grabbing (which
  I'll blame on GDK for now), added a quick-n-dirty work-around which
  seemed to fix it. The problem occured when e.g. listing long tar
  archives (read: Linux kernel), it deadlocked at EOF. Real odd.


0.11.4
* Statusbar now shows the amount of free space for the filesystem
  the current pane's directory is in. Note that the call that makes
  this possible (statfs(2) on Linux, statvfs(2) on e.g. Solaris and
  Irix) seems to be somewhat unstandardized. There might be trouble.
* Fixed a problem with nesting modal dialogs. Noticable when e.g.
  Rename caused an overwrite confirmation to occur.
* Fixed a related dialog problem; now, if you close the Rename
  dialog with the Overwrite confirm window still open, nothing evil
  will happen.
* Did numerous clean-ups in the main "gentoo.h" header file, moving
  many type definitions into separate C files, thus reducing coupling.
* Removed a useless dialog (the "child_dialog" module).
* Discovered what I suppose is a compiler bug in gcc 2.8.1; when
  compiling gentoo with optimization level 2 (-O2), a supposedly
  harmless statement in the dialog module will cause a segfault...
* When you write a path, the keyboard events no longer trigger
  commands. This is better. Reported by J. Hanson <johan@tiq.com>.
* Added a freeze/thaw pair to the textviewer used for command output
  capturing, resulting in way better performance and no flickering.
* Removed the (nonfunctional) "Print" button from the text viewer,
  slightly changing the button layout in the process.
* Slowed down the animation of the busy indicator (used by the
  Information and GetSize commands) a bit. It made me nervous. :)
* The hex text viewing (used by ViewHex & ViewTextOrHex) code was
  *very* memory-inefficient (it always loaded the entire file, but
  only looked at 16 bytes at a time). Now it reads 16 bytes at a
  time, thus using constant buffer space (and running slower).
* ViewTextOrHex now correctly reports the error if it fails to
  open a file for reading. Er, ViewText & ViewHex don't (yet).
* Designed and implemented a system for keeping track of each
  command's individual configuration options. The options them-
  selves have been around for quite a while, but they haven't been
  configurable (without editing source, that is). Now they appear
  on the "Command Options" page in the configuration window, and
  are loaded and saved along with the rest of the config. Neat.
    Please read "docs/scratch/command_options.txt" to learn what
  the different options do.


0.11.3
* Damn! That command sequence selection dialog just didn't work.
  Typical, since I spent about 3 hrs banging on it before releasing
  0.11.2. Perhaps I should have tested it. Reported by J. Minnberg.
* Eh, seems I broke the main "gentoo.h" include file, too. Fixed.
* Fixed a minor error (typo) in the cmdgrab module.


0.11.2
* Upgraded my system to GTK+ 1.2.1. I don't think there are any
  changes in compatibility, so using 1.2.0 should still be fine.
* Removed a silly debugging printf() from dirpane config. Oops.
* New icon (suitable for docks et cetera) for gentoo included. Check
  out "icons/gentoo.png". It's in PNG to preserve the cool alpha.
* gentoo now displays pretty icon graphics when iconified.
* Fixed buglet in Makefile's 'clean' target. :)
* The example config now calls on the GIMP to edit images. I also
  added types for Debian & Red Hat packages (should list on view)
  and data compressed with gzip & bzip2 (decompress & cat on view).
  Suggested by J. Rodin <jrodin@jagor.srce.h>. Note that I run
  neither Debian nor Red Hat, so those commands are completely
  untested. They might work. :)
* The "Show Dir's File System Size?" flag (for pane Size columns)
  now works again. Reported by A. Melchiorsen <and@kampsax.dtu.dk>.
* The Pick Icon dialog (used in File Style config) was messed up:
  it had no "OK" button, only "Cancel", which didn't work. Fixed.
* The dialog activated by the "..." button when configuring an
  external command row was also broken ("Cancel"-only). Fixed.
* Fixed small widget update bug when changing a Style's Action.
* Updated the man page (docs/gentoo.1x) somewhat.
* The Information and GetSize commands now show a busy-dialog when
  they are working, thus allowing you to cancel them (just click
  the button, or simply hit Escape).


0.11.1
* Ported gentoo over to GTK+ 1.2.0. Note that this GTK+ version now
  is *required*, and that gentoo 0.11.x will NOT compile with older
  (1.0.x) versions of the GTK+ toolkit.
* Renamed some types used in cmd_generic.c (GFreeFunc collides with
  glib 1.2.0).
* Added inclusion of <stdlib.h> here and there, seems it's no longer
  being done automatically by GTK+. Great.
* Wrapped all scrollable widgets in GtkScrolledWindows, since they
  no longer do the scrolling on their own. Note that GtkCLists, for
  example, don't need gtk_scrolled_window_add_with_viewport(), since
  they actually do have their own viewport. Had to add GTK_POLICY_NEVER
  to suppress many unwanted (and seemingly unnecessary) horizontal
  scrollbars. Weird.
* I think the 'scrollbar_always' thing was broken; it might have been
  accidentally controlling the horizontal rather than the vertical
  bar... Oops, and fixed.
* Removed some unused variable definitions from all over the place.
* Totally redid handling of selections in panes. It is now completely
  handled by the GtkCList itself; there is no longer any state kept in
  gentoo. This meant that I had to rewrite all code that cared about
  selected rows. Pfew. From a usability point of view, the new way of
  handling selections is slightly less responsive than the old hack,
  but that's the price I guess.
* Noticed that if compiled with optimization (-O2), the stripped x86
  executable isn't larger than ~230 KB. Not too bad.
* Fixed huge bug in type loading; don't know if it was "active" in
  previous versions, but it sure was now.
* Redesigned the Style config page rather extensively... Not sure I
  like it though. We'll see what happens.
* Command sequences can now repeat until there is no selection in the
  source pane. This is sometimes useful, e.g. if you want to define a
  command to untar all selected tar archives. Since 'tar' won't accept
  a list of archives, you must run it multiple times. Note that if you
  don't include a {Fu} or {fu} somewhere in the command sequence,
  you'll shoot yourself in the foot. Recursively.
* Fixed a bug in the loading of command sequence flags. Didn't hurt
  anyone in previous versions, since there were actually no flags to
  load... :)
* Touched up the command output capturing code, since some of the
  semantics seem to have changed. Or perhaps I never had it right...
* The GUI for configuring before/after flags for external command
  rows has been simplified, removing some useless options. This also
  made it less vertically tall, which is a good thing.
* It is now possible to bind a keyboard shortcut key to each button!
  Real neat, and can really speed up the use of gentoo.
* The window size is now less rigid; even if you let gentoo set its
  main window size on startup, you can still make the window smaller
  later.
* Scratched the old dialog module, and rewrote it. The new code is
  far better, and about half the size of the old one. The original
  was written during my first week of GTK+ programming. It showed.
  The only visible differnce is perhaps more dialog window titles.
* Changed quite a few GTK+ calls to use the latest function names,
  since many functions have been renamed in GTK+ 1.2.0. This change
  means that gentoo does not need GTK+'s compatibility header, since
  all functions are referred to by their current names.
* The symbolic link handling has been "cleaned up", i.e. more or
  less removed. I'm considering how to better implement it. Please
  be patient...
* Added a SelectType command, which will select all files having
  the same type as any of the currently selected ones. A bit like
  SelExt, but easier to understand, describe and use. :)
* Added the DpRecenter command, which recenters the two panes. Very
  useful if you've screwed things up so you can't see the handle.
* Added generic, global keyboard command shortcuts, fully config-
  urable of course (on the new "Controls" config page). Real neat.
* Removed the declaration, definition, and all uses of my home-grown
  snprintf() function; glib has it, and it is faster than mine. :)
* The About window now recognizes that it's 1999, and includes more
  information about how to reach me/get gentoo (hint: wait 10 secs).
* Removed some annoying glib-warnings that occurred if gentoo was
  run without any user-defined commands.
* Fixed a bug in the GetSize command which prevented it from com-
  puting the correct size for more than one directory at a time.

(Changes in older versions of gentoo are in the ONEWS file)
