Xwrits NEWS

Version 2.6.1

* Fixed the clock, which will now disappear properly instead of leaving a
  black square (even in mono).


Version 2.6

* Made and included pictures for monochromatic screens and added `mono'
  option.

* Bug fixes for `lock', `clock' and `breakclock'.

* Restored the time argument to `idle'.


Version 2.6b8

* Added support for --longoptions and --version.

* Fixed race condition in schedule.c.


Version 2.6b7

* Clock improvements: fixed problem with black-on-black clock on 24-plane
  displays (it had to do with visual selection: WhitePixel wasn't white since
  the Visual was not the default). Also improved clock appearance and made it
  appear more like when it's supposed to.


Version 2.6b6

* Improved the configure script to use <sys/types.h> for u_int32_t, etc.
  when possible.

* Fixed bug in gifx.c: on a 24-plane display, any picture came out all black.
  (The problem: implementation-specific behavior of <<; specifically,
  I expected 1<<32 == 0 for 32-bit ints.)

* Added visual searching: xwrits will now use a TrueColor visual if available.


Version 2.6b4

* Updated GIF library to 0.9, the version used in Gifsicle. This has
  temporarily broken support for monochrome displays, but will hopefully
  fix other bugs some people have experienced.


Version 2.6b3

* Fixed installation and improved the configure script.


Version 2.6b2

* Fixed bug with freeing memory multiple times. Works better on Linux now.


Version 2.5

* The most important change is the +idle option, on by default, which makes
  xwrits slightly smarter than an alarm clock. The code has also been
  completely reorganized around the Alarm concept, which makes it much
  cleaner.


Version 2

* Many, many more options have been added. The code has been cleaned up a
  great deal, and also expanded a great deal. Comments should still be
  added to the code.

* Xwrits no longer uses XPM files. Instead, it uses GIF files, with some
  proprietary extensions. The GIF files are compiled into C files, then
  object files, and read from memory. This makes xwrits a much, much
  smaller executable, faster, and more portable.
