  (May 11 2020)

- Add time of OPML export (as a comment) in tickr_opml.c. (Dec 17 2018)

- In tickr_feedpicker.c, change
    "Enter (rank and) URL:"

- Static global var shift_counter now member of TickerEnv struct.
  (May 23 2017)

  migration ?) (May 21 2017)

- Fix segfaults in feed picker win -> add/update with unreachable or
  invalid URLs. (Mar 15 2017)

- Replace __FUNCTION__ with __func__ in all src files, to fix new
  -Wpedantic warnings about non-standard predefined identifiers in gcc5.
  (Feb 12 2017)

- Add donate button in about win. (Jan 15 2017)

- Fix a few reverse scrolling issues. Still a lot to do. (Feb 25 2016)

- Reload delay now up to 1440 mn = 24 h. 0 = never force reload.
  Actually, in multiple selections mode, all feeds are always reloaded

    if (resrc->fp != NULL)
  before
      fseek(resrc->fp, 0, SEEK_SET);
  to fix segfault when trying to open an invalid resource or a

  (Nov 6 2014)

  https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/tickr/
  Need feedback to know if this actually makes a difference.
  (Oct 30 2014)

- Quick hack to fix remaining 1 pixel wide line when enabling then
  disabling left clock, because then vbox_clock/drwa_clock min size is
  still 1x1 (not 0x0) and is the first widget packed in main_hbox.
  So, when no clock is set, we make sure the 'empty clock widget' is
  always on the right side, ie we do:
  gtk_box_reorder_child(GTK_BOX(main_hbox), vbox_clock, 1)
  (Oct 30 2014)

  invalid/unreachable one to be kept anyways. (Oct 22 2014)

  add_feed_to_flnode_and_list_store() to fix f_list_search() invalid
  node error, when trying to add one feed to an *empty* list.

  gtk_box_pack_start(GTK_BOX(GTK_DIALOG(dialog)->vbox), sc_win,
    TRUE, TRUE, 0);
  (Oct 18 2014)

- Improved long strings formatting in info_win() with
  insert_newlines_if_too_long(). (Oct 17 2014)

- Change g_remove() to g_unlink() because we deal only with files.
  Also add a silly hack to prevent issues with win32 appdata dir user
  permissions unholy mess. (Oct 17 2014)

- 'disable screen limits' option now applies to x position too.
  (Sep 22 2014)

- Add 'marked items' stuff in UI and params. (Sep 17 2014)

- Change function names in menu_item array from function_name2 to
  function_name0 because function_name0 are always called before
  function_name so using 2 is just confusing. (Sep 11 2014)

- A few changes in tickr_feedpicker.c (line 393). (May 15 2014)

- Fix 'disablepopups' option not effective on 'no-ui' option and allow
  'no-ui' option to be effective if 1st *or* *2nd* arg. (May 2 2014)

- "Open Feed" in menu changed to "Feed Organizer" in tickr_main.c and
  "Feed Picker" window title changed to "Feed Organizer" in
  tickr_feedpicker.c. (Oct 5 2013)


tickr version 0.6.4
-------------------

- In pref windows, some setting changes (like 'read n items per feed')
  need the stream to be reloaded, so now we use current_feed() instead
  of update_pixmap_from_opened_stream(). (May 23 2013)

- Fix 'quick feed picker (selected feeds) closes when pointer leaves win
  area' and implement it as a setting. (May 22 2013)

- In pref window, disabling screen limits updates win_y and win_w limits
  on the fly. (May 22 2013)

- Max options number now set to 128. (May 21 2013)

- Pref win changes:
  - remove 'system' colors buttons
  - increase gtk table row spacings
  (May 14 2013)

- If gradient bg set, compute text shadow color no longer from bg_color
  but from gradient. (May 14 2013)

- Quick feed picker (selected feeds) closes when pointer leaves win
  area. Plus: quick feed picker opened *also* by Ctrl + mouse
  right-click. (May 4 2013)

- Complete RSS 1.0 support (Closes: #688099) and fix/rewrite a few
  things in feed parser code. (May 3 2013)

- In tickr_feedparser.c: ending '\n' removed when adding string to
  XML_DUMP (left when adding string to XML_DUMP_EXTRA). (May 1 2013)

- Replace update_win_dims() with update_win_dims_and_loc() so that if
  ticker location happens to be wrong, it's always and quickly reset.
  (Apr 30 2103)

- Add RSS 1.0 (RDF) support. (Apr 30 2013)

- In tickr_main.c / main(), change:
    gtk_widget_show_all(env->win);
    update_win_dims();
    gtk_main();
  to:
    gtk_widget_show_all(env->win);
    gtk_widget_set_size_request(env->win, 1, 1);
    gtk_window_resize(GTK_WINDOW(env->win), 1, 1);
    gtk_main();
  to try to get rid of "ghost" square window at startup (but is this
  fully effective ?)
  Also change:
    gtk_widget_set_size_request(env->win, 0, 0)
  to:
    gtk_widget_set_size_request(env->win, 1, 1)
  in update_win_dims(). (Apr 29 2013)

- In feed picker - multiple selection mode: start reading selection with
  highlighted feed - more exactly url in entry (if any) / first one
  otherwise. (Apr 29 2013)

- Remove (useless ?) app version number from exported OPML feed list
  title. (Apr 25 2013)

- Only a little editor issue - some editors get confused (geany colors
  get confused) by things like:
    THIS_IS_A_#DEFINE"____string____"
  so now we put a space in between, like this:
    THIS_IS_A_#DEFINE "____string____"
  (Apr 25 2013)

- If win_w = 0, win_w = detected screen width (same as 'full width' but
  from command line). (Apr 24 2013)

- Fix xml namespaces issue in tickr_feedparser.c, when, for instance,
  'media:title' exists along with 'title' and we then get 'title' twice.
  Now, we make sure no extra namespace is used before comparing strings
  with 'title', 'description', etc. (April 22 2013)

- Fix stupid bug in format_resource() 'translate html entities' when '&'
  alone is detected (ie without a following ';'). Also fix 'translating'
  numerical entities with leading '0' in value string. (Apr 21 2013)

- New option 'disablescreenlimits' which allows win_y and win_w to be
  greater than screen dimensions. (Apr 13 2013)

- A few default settings changed. (Apr 13 2013)

- Gradient bg. (Apr 13 2013)


tickr version 0.6.3
-------------------

- Fix messy update_everything() function and add new
  update_pixmap_from_opened_stream() function, used in tickr_mainc.c and
  tickr_prefwin.c. (Feb 4 2013)

- All *string* values are now saved inclosed in a pair of " or '.
  (This avoid getting trailing whitespaces removed by some editors, and
  other weird things like that.) When read, enclosing " or ' are

- install-on-win32 script renamed build-on-win32 (for accuracy sake.)
  (Oct 30 2012)

    if (IS_FLIST(flist_bak))
      (  f_list_free_all(flist_bak);  )

  (GTK_RESPONSE_ADD) instead of 'ok (single)' (GTK_RESPONSE_SINGLE).
  (Jul 3 2012)

- Question at program start-up about new feed list format conversion:

    if (prm->icon_in_taskbar == 'n')
      gtk_window_deiconify(GTK_WINDOW(env->win));
  from update_win_dims() (why was it there?) to fix 'tickr keeps
  stealing focus' bug. Also replace params_have_been_changed() with

  Also remove seemingly useless g_win32_locale_filename_from_utf8()
  stuff on win32. (Jun 19 2012)

  warn about 'pointless' setup and ask for confirmation before saving
  config. (Jun 18 2012)

- Add new TickerEnv member (int) mouse_x_in_drwa used to continuously

  'visible on all user desktops' stops working. (Jun 1 2012)

- If mouse wheel scrolling applies to speed (or feed), then Ctrl + mouse
  wheel scrolling applies to feed (or speed.) (May 31 2012)

- No real code changes in libetm, only in comments, so no need for a new
  version number. (May 31 2012)

- Update tickr_helptext.c and tickr.1 (man page.) (May 30 2012)

- Add new cli option 'no-ui' (similar to 'instance-id') used by new
  IF_UI_ALLOWED macro and remove all #if USE_GUI occurences.
  (May 28 2012)

- In tickr_list.c, free listfname before using it. Fixed by swapping 2

  'NYT > World' -> ' World'. (May 2O 2012)

- New param: disable left-click. (May 2O 2012)

- Add 'check for updates' feature. (May 19 2012)

- Launch 'import OPML file' if feed list doesn't exist. (May 18 2012)

- Remove code changing get_params()->disable_popups value in
    START/END_PAUSE_TICKER_WHILE_OPENING
  macros which prevents this setting to be saved and add
    START/END_PAUSE_TICKER_ENABLE_POPUPS_WHILE_OPENING
  new macros. Which ones to use depends on context. (May 10 2012)

- Move:
    #ifdef G_OS_WIN32
    extern FILE	*stdout_fp, *stderr_fp;
    #endif
  from *.c into tickr.h. (May 9 2012)

- Default always-on-top setting changed to 'n' (so that tickr is not
  intrusive by default.) (May 5 2012)

  (Jan 21 2012)

- In libetm-0.4.3:
  - Compile with win32_specific.c only on win32 (fix empty unit
    warning.)
  - get_libetm_version() (function name modified.) (Jan 19 2012)

- Fix a typo in debian/control Build-Depends:

tickr version 0.5.5
-------------------

- Implement new parameter: <mouse wheel scrolling applies to:
  s = ticker-speed / f = feed-in-list / n = none>.

- Set <ticker pause on mouse-over> as optional.

- Select/highlight and scroll to added URL in the list window.
  (Dec 17 2011)

- Split compute_surface_and_win() code into compute_surface and
  compute_win, because the later is not always necessary. When
  window-always-on-top is disabled, compute_win needs to be run only
  twice at program startup (ie once after gtk_widget_show_all() has been
  called), then whenever params are changed, but not every time a new
  feed is loaded.

- Add preferences (settings) importing/exporting feature.

- 'file' scheme support added in tickr_http.c -> enables reading *and*
  xml-processing of (local) text files (wheras 'open text file' *only*
  read them.) (Dec 16 2011)

- 'HTTPS not supported' handling/warning added in tickr_http.c (fix bug:
  program freezes with HTTP redirects to HTTPS.)
  (Dec 14 2011)

- xml 'quick check' in tickr_http.c:format_quick_check() don't reject
  anymore valid (?) feeds not starting with '<?xml' (like google news.)
  (Dec 13 2011)

- A few little changes in libetm-0.4 -> libetm-0.4.2. (Dec 12 2011)

- Use mouse wheel to go to previous/next feed. (Dec 11 2011)

- Hide passwords in connection settings window. (Dec 8 2011)

- Pause ticker and show feed title in tooltip on mouse-over. (Dec 3 2011)

- Renaming all source files: news_*.c/h -> tickr_*/c/h. (Nov 30 2011)


tickr version 0.5.4 - Nov 8 2011
--------------------------------

- Fix sort_url_list(EMPTY_LIST) falsly returning one element list
  (in news_list.c.) Now, program doesn't hang anymore if lauched with no
  feed URLs selected.

- Add in news_main.c: shift2left_callback():
  env->suspend_rq = TRUE / (cairo drawing code) / env->suspend_rq = FALSE

- Tickr fails to build with ld --as-needed (recently-set-as-default
  linker flag) because libraries must be placed after objects needing
  theirs symbols.
  To fix that, we use autoconf macro PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GTK2, gtk+-2.0, ,)
  and PKG_CHECK_MODULES(XML2, libxml-2.0, ,) in configure.ac, and we
  may so remove `pkg-config --libs GTK+-2.0' and `xml-config --libs' from
  src/tickr/Makefile.am.
