Changes to 0.5.0

* brand new user interface. It is based on a list view, and introduces 
   a lot of new possibilities (see help for details).
  Old interface is still available via ./configure --enable-term-ui
* added the beginnings of a rcalc GNOME applet. It is mainly a command line 
  (just like the mini-commander applet), which content is calculated by the 
  embedded rcalc engine. Build with ./configure --enable-applet.

Changes to 0.3.99 (new maintainer)

* added a glib-only UI (completely gnome-independant, text-based), 
   enable with ./configure --disable-gnome-support
* user-defined functions (func <name>(x)=<expr>, see help)
* possibility to compile these functions instead of parsing them
   for more syntax fun (experimental, and needs a working gcc installed),
   try it with ./configure --enable-compiled-functions
* added the x! ('fac (x)') function
* ported to GNOME 2
* updated translations

Changes to 0.3.7

* documented various bits of the source tree.
* fixed a bug whereby the documentation didn't install properly.
* made automake's maintainer mode work.
* fixed a problem with the NLS configuration.
* added a terminal-based user interface with Lynx help.
* added hooks for an expr(1)-like user interface.
* made a settings menu and moved some things into it.
* fixed a (small) memory leak.
* updated Italian translations.
* massive code and build process reordering.

Changes to 0.2.6

* added Afrikaans translations and online help.
* changed the configuration format to futureproof it.
* renamed rCalc as rcalc.
* transferred copyright to the Free Software Foundation.
* added a manpage.
* added an Edit menu.
* removed the screenshots from the online help.
* stripped binary stored in RPM.
* (again hopefully) fixed -lreadline configuration bug.
* massive code reordering.

Changes to 0.2.5

* fixed the operator precedence bug (bug 117071).
* added Italian translations and online help.

Changes to 0.2.4

* added French translations and online help.

Changes to 0.2.3

* updated the online help (bugs 112708 and 114682).
* fixed the operator precedence bug (bug 114681).
* fixed the native decimal bug (bug 109562).
* added NLS support with British English and German translations.

Changes to 0.2.2

* fixed bug where long command lines would not wrap correctly (bug 104483).
* (hopefully) fixed configuration bug on Mandrake (bug 104910).

Changes to 0.2.1

* added stuff to generate RPMs.

External changes to 0.2

* command history via GNU readline, with all the features that brings.
* some commands now have extra behaviour, and some extra ones (that will
  familiar to anyone who has used Matlab) have been added.
* input lines may now contain several commands/expressions, separated by
  semicolons.
* a preferences dialog box has been added
* documentation has been written.

Internal changes to 0.2

* everything is tidier and generally more maintainable and robust.
* the calculator's internal state is now stored using gnome_config functions.
* internationalisation macros have been added to everything
