Name        : rxvt-unicode
Product     : Fedora 20
Version     : 9.21
Release     : 3.fc20
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:

 * the "moa redraw 8-bit british vintage colour management" release.
 * NOTICE: this release updates terminfo.
 * fix pixel droppings on overdraw when a secondary core font has the same height but different ascent.
 * implement cvvis in terminfo as blinking cursor, to distinguish it from cnorm (emacs uses cvvis which is commonly a blinking cursor).
 * when xft support was compiled in, colour queries erroneously returned premultiplied values, this also affected internal queries, for example when calculating faded colour. alpha is now divided out when possible, which is more correct but loses colour resolution.
 * add DECSCUSR xterm extension to set the cursor to a vertical bar.
 * add 'extension:string' action, and associated on_action per hook, for keysym resources that invokes actions provided by perl extensions. The 'perl:string' action and on_user_command hook are deprecated but still supported.
 * add 'builtin-string' action for keysym resources that restores string mappings for keys that have predefined actions in urxvt.
 * add -k option to urxvtc for killing the daemon process.
 * document urxvtd's -e/--eval option that was implemented in 9.16, but not documented.
 * add -dockapp option to make the wm treat urxvt as a dockapp.
 * add -mc option and multiClickTime resource to set the maximum time between multi-click select events (patch by Joe Peterson).
 * new 'eval' extension to evaluate arbitrary perl code with keysym bindings. The extension also provides methods that implement basic actions, such as pasting selections and scrolling.
 * kuake extension now uses the kuake.hotkey resource to specify the hotkey.
 * new 'matcher:select' mode of matcher to iterate over the matches with the keyboard.
 * the 'matcher:list' feature of matcher now honours the launcher associated to a matched pattern.
 * speed-up matcher underlining on very long lines (reported by Edward Z. Yang).
 * fix up/down commands of searchable-scrollback so that they always move to the previous/next logical line with a match, if any.
 * searchable-scrollback resource has been deprecated (use keysym instead).
 * extension parameter passing is deprecated (use resource mechanism instead).
 * upgrade to GPLv3 (see COPYING).
 * compile out of the box on Solaris 10, again.
 * fix height and position of the stippled area in next scrollbar (patch by Thomas Otto).
 * fix off-by-one bug causing the iso14755 window not to jump out of the way properly.
 * fix crash that may happen if a lib to which urxvt is linked to calls setenv.
 * fix memory leak in special_{encode,decode} perl methods.
 * fix refresh bug that occurs when reverse video is set on a cell containing a space and with the same bg and fg colour, red hat bug #830236.
 * fix crash that may happen if an x error is received after a terminal window/popup has been destroyed already.
 * removed superfluous 0 digit from sgr terminfo sequence.
 * greatly improve colour allocation on colour-starved pseudocolour displays to avoid read-write cells instead of simply failing (this is only relevant for antique 8bpp frame buffers).
 * do not free fade colours when not doing fading (this is likely only relevant for antique 8bpp frame buffers).
 * do not specialcase 2 or 4 colour visuals, leading to simpler and actually more correct code.
 * hopefully no longer leak colours on !truecolour visuals.
 * use consistent method names (scr_recolour => scr_recolor).
 * use simpler (but slightly less bogus) formula for nearest colour choice (this is likely only relevant for antique 8bpp frame buffers).
 * remove fallback behaviour when initialising colours - the behaviour was inconsistent between startup vs. later and was only effective when valid colours couldn't be allocated.
* Prefer XDG_RUNTIME_DIR over the HOME
