Version 0.5.1

Version 0.5.0

   /usr/local/bin and /usr/local/man. Via the -nignore command line
   option you can specify some rules, these rules are configurable

   patches on Free-BSD
 
*) Fixed typos and improved configure script

*) Don't die when TERM is not set.

Version 0.4.6

*) Added copying support for files and directories instead of linking it.
   This makes sence for files like the 'dir' file of the info
   directory, or configuration files in the /etc directory

Version 0.4.5

*) applied some pathes by Jos Backus, for fixing compiling problems 
   on Solaris.

Version 0.4.4

*) [protect-dirs] configuration options added
   This alows restricting the access within a legal target
   tree. This is usefule if stow dir is '/stow' and the
   target dir '/', but all packages should be installed
   in '/usr/local'

*) fixed some bugs

Version 0.4.3

*) fixed 'xstow -dl' crash bug

*) fixed working dir bug

*) improved compatibility with stow, by using
   the same package detection technic, even if I think
   this is a bug, not a feature 

*) create static versions of xstow: xstow-static and xstow-stow

Version 0.4.2

*) Applied stderr Patch.
   Errors in the option parsing system will be printed out to 
   stderr now.

*) Ignore matches support. Files like *~ core or CVS can be ignored.

*) Make other stow dirs public by using the -stow-dirs option or
   writing it into the config file

*) automated traverse link dectection support
   you can configure that absolute links will be automatically
   detected as traversable links.

*) a force mode

Version 0.2.0

*) Traversable link support was added. This allows setting a link from
   /usr/share/man to /usr/man. It can be configured via the xstow.ini
   file. See xstow(1) and xstow.ini(5) for details.
