Tur Mar 30 01:21:03 CEST 2004 - surfraw 2.0.2

  * Added bash completion support by Justin B Rye
  * Do not set $DISPLAY when running in text mode
  * Removed sharereactor elvi

Tue Feb 10 04:01:40 GMT 2004 - surfraw 2.0.1

Please note that the elvi have moved again, to /usr/lib/surfraw

If you used surfraw-update-path from version 2.0 to add the elvi
directory to your path, you will need to run it again, first with
-remove to remove the old path, then again with -add. To change your
path you will need to either log out and in again or source the
relevant config files.

  * Moved elvi to /usr/lib/surfraw
  * Updated docs for new elvi location
  * Changed man page section for all elvi to 1sr
  * Fixed surfraw help text
  * Added man page links for pgpkeys, ebay and sharereactor
  * Added linda override (and surfraw.dirs) for usr-lib-in-arch-all
  * Added debhelper tokens to prerm/postinst 
    (they were in released 2.0-1 but not CVS)
  * Rewrote man page surfraw.1.in, added man page elvi.1sr.in
    Both go via autoconf.
  * Removed old debian/surfraw.1
  * Updated debian/surfraw.links to point elvi to elvi.1sr.gz
  * Updated AUTHORS to hopefully include every contributor, ever.
  * Changed a few "def"s to "defyn"s in surfraw.conf.in
  * Fixed quoting so   sr google foo "bar baz" qux   works
  * Makefile.am: Added missing files to EXTRA_DIST
  * Added a debconf note (only visible if upgrading from 2.0-1)
    explaining the elvi have moved again
  * configure.in: changed to new AM_INIT_AUTOMAKE format,
    specified minimum automake version 1.7
  * updated surfraw.lsm with new URLs
  * deleted debian/rules.save (old rules backup)
  * Removed elvi:
    + britannica: gone subscription-only
    + swhois: all whois sites I can find have anti-harvester features
	  that stop us using them.
  * Fixed elvi:
    + wikipedia - added missing quotes (could've sworn I did this already)
    + cnn - updated url
    + translate - corrected docs
  * Moved debian/surfraw.links to links.IN in top dir, now uses autoconf
    and is not debian-specific
  * Makefile.am: Added install-data-hook to create links
  * configure.in, elvi/Makefile.in: fixed ELVIDIR quoting
  * added elvi/surfraw_elvi to CLEANFILES & removed it from cvs, as it is
    generated on build.
  * disabled ifs quoting in elvi that don't like it:
    freedb, happypenguin, jake, rhyme, scaleplus, 
	sharereactor, thesaurus, webster, deblists.
  * Added note to HACKING explaining how to disable ifs quoting
  * synced NAMESPACE branch with HEAD
    Please use the main HEAD branch from now on.
  * links.IN: made links relative
  * Converted debconf to po-debconf
  * Eliminated templates.IN, as it confused po-debconf
  * Deautoconfiscated the debian directory, as only templates went through
    autoconf

Tue Dec 23 03:19:58 GMT 2003 - surfraw 2.0

New development team, see http://alioth.debian.org/projects/surfraw
