Fedora Update Notification

Name        : surfraw
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 2.2.6
Release     : 1.fc12
URL         : http://surfraw.alioth.debian.org/
Summary     : Shell Users Revolutionary Front Rage Against the Web
Description :
Surfraw provides a fast unix command line interface to a variety of
popular WWW search engines and other artifacts of power. It reclaims
google, altavista, babelfish, dejanews, freshmeat, research index,
slashdot and many others from the false-prophet, pox-infested heathen
lands of html-forms, placing these wonders where they belong, deep in
unix heartland, as god loving extensions to the shell.

Surfraw abstracts the browser away from input. Doing so lets it get on
with what it's good at. Browsing. Interpretation of linguistic forms
is handed back to the shell, which is what it, and human beings are
good at. Combined with netscape-remote or incremental text browsers,
such as links (http://artax.karlin.mff.cuni.cz/~mikulas/links/), w3m
(http://www.w3m.org/), and screen(1) a Surfraw liberateur is capable
of navigating speeds that leave GUI tainted idolaters agape with fear
and wonder.

Update Information:

Update to 2.2.6. Changes include fixes and enhancements for existing elvi as
well as the addition of new elvi. Also, per-user elvi in
$HOME/.config/surfraw/elvi/ are supported.    Config files have been moved to
follow the XDG basedir spec, so the global config is now in
/etc/xdg/surfraw/conf, and local config is now in $HOME/.config/surfraw/conf.
