Project Release Information
This release adds some rendering bugfixes, a fix for size computation in the tabbed extension, and better support for Solaris.
This release overhauls the bg image operations to be more flexible and deprecates libAfterImage support. Perl extensions are now searched for by default in ~/.urxvt/ext. There are various bugfixes of varying importance.
Better compatibility with gcc 4.5. A regression in urxvtd that prevented options from being correctly set was fixed. There were other fixes.
This is primarily a maintenance release, fixing a large number of minor issues, such as compilation problems that have been found since the last release.
This release fixes a load of minor bugs, such as
memory leaks with libafterimage, correct adjusting
of line length and wide characters on
insert/delete/erase, a number of minor wide
character problems, a problem with perl on HPPA
systems, disabling mouse reporting on reset, and
many others. There have also been some small
feature enhancements, such as being able to
specify an icon image, an upgrade of the embedded
libev, an OSC sequence to change the border color,
a new Perl extension "overlay-osc", clearing the
urgency hint on focus out, and a few others.
rxvt-unicode is a clone of the well known terminal emulator rxvt, modified to store text in Unicode and to use locale-correct input and output. It also supports mixing multiple fonts at the same time, including Xft fonts, real transparency, and an optional embedded Perl interpreter that allows you to extend your terminal easily.
