Later versions

	Please use the gitweb log at http://repo.or.cz/w/kdbg.git to browse
	the changes.

Version 2.0.4

	Fixed encoding of the Czech translation thanks to Jakub Galgonek.

	Added support for QString in Qt4's debug libraries.

	Fixed that the debugger window really comes to the foreground and
	receives the focus when the debuggee stops at a breakpoint, when this
	option is on (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=171845).

	Added a filter edit box to the Attach to Process dialog to improve
	usability.

Version 2.0.3

	Fixed parsing of gdb output that mentions "operator<<", "operator>>",
	"operator<", and "operator>" within text delimited by angle brackets <>.
	This fixes a crash when any such function is disassembled and other
	misbehaviors.

	Fixed parsing stack frames that mention "operator<<" or "operator<".
	Thanks to Charles Samuels, who pointed out the problem and provided
	an initial fix.

Version 2.0.2

	Fixed stack display for functions in an anonymous namespace and
	for functions whose names involve template parameter lists (thanks to
	André Wöbbeking).

	Fixed environment list which would add back the entry from the edit box
	even if it was just deleted.

	Fixed that the Run/Continue button was enabled while the program was
	running.

	Fixed parsing of NaN (Not a Number) floating point values.

Version 2.0.1

	Updated Hungarian translation (thanks to Tamas Szanto).

	Worked around gdb 6.3 crashes at "info line main" command (thanks to
	Stefan Taferner).

	Updated XSLT debugger parser for xsldbg >= 3.4.0 (by Keith Isdale).

Version 2.0.0

	References and const types are treated like the base type (thanks to
	Shaheed).

	Fixed parsing of large arrays with many different values, which were
	terminated by "...".

	Fixed the kdbg.desktop file: Encoding is UTF-8, install in XDG menu
	location.

	Fixed PS_COMMAND detection for Solaris' /bin/sh.

Version 1.9.7

	Added a new animated button in the toolbar.

	Fixed Norwegian translation file names.

Version 1.9.6

	"<invalid float value>" in register dumps was not parsed correctly.

	Fixed that variable popup location was computed incorrectly if tab
	width is not 0.

	Updated the manual.

	Implemented printing of Qt4's QStrings.

Version 1.9.5

	Fixed some issues when the items in the environment variable list
	are selected.

	Added a command line option to attach to a process (thanks to
	Matthew Allen for the initial code).

	Fixed the "Using host libthread_db" error message properly.

	Fixed inappropriate icon sizes.

Version 1.9.4

	Updated the build system to the latest auto* tools.

	Worked around the problem that gdb reports "Using host libthread_db"
	on Fedora Core when it processes the file command.

Version 1.9.3

	Improved editing of values; it is now possible to edit variables also
	in the watch window.

Version 1.9.2

	The previous security fix only protects against accidents, not attacks,
	as Matt Zimmerman pointed out. Did it right this time.

	Basic editing of values in the local variables window is available.
	More refinements are still necessary.

Version 1.9.1

	Fixed security flaw regarding the program specific debugger command.

	Configurable key bindings.

Version 1.9.0

	Program arguments that are file names can be browsed for.

	Added XSLT debugging (using xsldbg) by Keith Isdale.

	The program counter can be changed via point and click.

	Improved register formating by Daniel Kristjansson.

	"Orphaned breakpoints", i.e. breakpoints that gdb cannot set
	immediately, can be set. This helps debug shared libraries and
	dynamically loaded modules.

Version 1.2.10

	Fixed the "Using host libthread_db" error message.

	Fixed inappropriate icon sizes.

Version 1.2.9

	The previous security fix only protects against accidents, not attacks,
	as Matt Zimmerman pointed out. Did it right this time.

Version 1.2.8

	Fixed security flaw regarding the program specific debugger command.

Version 1.2.7

	Fixed parsing of stack frames for recent gdbs.

	Support vector registers (thanks to Daniel Thor Kristjansson for
	initial code).

	Work around bug in some gdbs which inhibits printing of QString values.

	when the contents of an array of 50 QStrings are displayed!

Version 1.2.4

	Now compiles for KDE 3 (Beta1).

	Support QString of Qt 3.x.

	Improved (and fixed) the display of arrays with repeated values.

	Fixed crash when a file is reloaded while disassembled code is
	displayed.

	Fixed parsing of stack frames involving signal handler invocations.

Version 1.2.3

	Fixed invisible toolbar under KDE 2.x (really, this time, I promise).

	Fixed crash when no line has the cursor (empty files).

	Don't display a blank page when a non-existing file was tried to open.

Version 1.2.2

	Fixed a special, but common case where removing a breakpoint didn't
	work but add more on the same line instead (thanks to Ron Lerech).

	Fixed invisible toolbar under KDE 2.1.2 (thanks to Neil Butterworth).

	Fixed compilation for gcc 3.0 (thanks to Ben Burton):

	Fixed make install if srcdir != builddir.

	Changed encoding of German translations (and also Danish, Italian,
	Norwegian, Romanian, Slovak, Swedish) to UTF-8, which fixes message
	strings under KDE2 (at least for German - couldn't test the others).

	Made Delete key work in the watch window.

	Breakpoints can be enabled and disabled in the breakpoint list.

	Detach from debugged program on exit (and when new program is debugged).

	Program specific settings can be set. In particular: the debugger
	command (required if you are debugging remote devices), the
	terminal emulation needed for the program.

Version 1.1.0

	Use docking windows thanks to Judin Max <novaprint@mtu-net.ru>.

	Added a register dump window. Based on code by Judin Max.

	Jacek Wojdel <wojdel@kbs.twi.tudelft.nl>.

Version 0.3.1

	The working directory for the program being debugged can be set
	(Execution|Arguments).

	There's now  a global options dialog in place (File|Global Options).
	At the moment the debugger program (which must be gdb, but it could be
	an experimental gdb version, for example) and the terminal for program
	output can be specified.

	Fixed Makefiles to support make DESTDIR=/tmp/foo install (which is
	needed by packagers and to create relocatable RPMs).

	There's now a Danish translation thanks to
	Steen Rabol <rabol@get2net.dk>.

Version 0.3.0

Starting with this version, Qt 1.42 and KDE 1.1 is required.

	Ported to Qt 2.0 and KDE post-1.1! KDbg now runs with both
	KDE 1.1 (using Qt 1.42) and the latest experimental KDE. You can of
	course run one version and debug programs written for the other version.

	KDbg can now display Qt 2.0's QString values (which are Unicode
	strings)!

	Environment variables can be set. Changes become effective the next time
	the program being debugged is run.

	The breakpoint list has been improved. It disables command buttons at
	times when it is not possible to change breakpoints. The icons that
	show the breakpoint status are now the same as those in the source
	window.

	Popup menus (context menus) for frequently used commands have been added
	to the source code window (thanks to Tom Nguyen <ttomnguyen@yahoo.com>)

	There's now a Russian translation thanks to
	Ilmar Habibulin <ilmar@ints.ru>.

	Internal restructuring. These changes are invisible. They just make
	future extensions less cumbersome.

Version 0.2.5

This is the last version that supports Qt 1.33 and KDE 1.0.

	There's now a Czech translation thanks to
	Martin Spirk <spirk@kla.pvt.cz>.

	Recognize and report when gdb dies unexpectedly. This happens commonly
	when writing CORBA programs since gdb obviously has problems in
	debugging C++ classes with virtual base classes.

	Added conditional breakpoints and ignore counts.

Version 0.2.4

	Added a toolbar button to load the executable. The button to open a
	source file is still there. I hope it's clear which one does what.

	Attaching to a running process is now possible (Execution|Attach).

	Made more visible when gdb is busy using a gear wheel in the upper right
	corner of the window like kfm.

	Made the KTreeView widget more flexible by adding a bunch of virtual
	keywords. (No, this doesn't have any influence on the look and feel of
	KDbg.) While doing that, I fixed a small repainting bug.
