Fedora Update Notification

Name        : rxvt-unicode
Product     : Fedora 18
Version     : 9.16
Release     : 1.fc18
URL         : http://software.schmorp.de/
Summary     : Unicode version of rxvt
Description :
rxvt-unicode is a clone of the well known terminal emulator rxvt, modified to
store text in Unicode (either UCS-2 or UCS-4) and to use locale-correct input
and output. It also supports mixing multiple fonts at the same time, including
Xft fonts.

Update Information:

 * INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: renamed urlLauncher resource to url-launcher.
 * fix processing of DEC private mode save sequences.
 * perl extensions now have their own manpages, installed as urxvt-NAME(1), e.g. urxvt-background(1) - see urxvt-extensions(1) for a list.
 * fix disabling of cursor blink with the option-popup menu.
 * the font height is not augmented anymore when lineSpace is non zero.
 * fix "new pagemap" vs. "delete pagemap" mismatch ([] vs. non-[]).
 * fix height mismatch between active and inactive cursor when lineSpace is non zero.
 * completely redone background pixmap support - users can now specify arbitrary expressions (And programs) that calculate new terminal backgrounds. see the urxvt-background manpage for details.
 * xrender is now required for background pixmap support.
 * perl extensions can now provide commandline switches and resources which show up in -help etc.
 * iso14755 51 mode window now displays row and column.
 * implement a -visual switch and move that and -depth to frills, also warn when we can't get the requested visual.
 * new env variable: RXVT_PERL_LIB.
 * allocate all screen memory in one go and let the virtual memory subsystem sort it out. this simplifies code, improves access locality, saves a bit of ram and makes things a bit faster, too.
 * remove support for libafterimage.
 * selectively mark some methods as cache-hot/cache cold, which might speed up execution but definitely decreases codesize.
 * Fix regression that prevented the scrollbar trough color from being applied.
 * Fix the scrollbar size for rxvt style.
