Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.20.1, Package name: gettext-tools-0.20.1, Maintainer: joerg

internationalisation (or i18n) of a utility.

This package contains the various development tools. gettextize and

Log message:
Update to 0.20.1

Changelog:
Version 0.20.1 - May 2019

* Important bug fix:
  - Fixed a wrong shared library versioning of libintl.so.

Version 0.20 - May 2019

* Support for reproducible builds:
  - msgfmt now eliminates the POT-Creation-Date header field from .mo files.

* Improvements for translators:
  - update-po target in Makefile.in.in now uses msgmerge --previous.

* Improvements for maintainers:
  - msgmerge now has an option --for-msgfmt, that produces a PO file meant
    for use by msgfmt only.  This option saves processing time, in particular
    by omitting fuzzy matching that is not useful in this situation.
  - The .pot file in a 'po' directory is now erased by "make \ 
maintainer-clean".
  - It is now possible to override xgettext options from the po/Makefile.in.in
    through options in XGETTEXT_OPTIONS (declared in po/Makevars).
  - The --intl option of the gettextize program (deprecated since 2010) is
    no longer available. Instead of including the intl sources in your package,
    we suggest making the libintl library an optional prerequisite of your
    package. This will simplify the build system of your package.
  - Accordingly, the Autoconf macro AM_GNU_GETTEXT_INTL_SUBDIR is gone as well.

* Programming languages support:
  - C, C++:
    xgettext now supports strings in u8"..." syntax, as specified in C11
    and C++11.
  - C, C++:
    xgettext now supports 'p'/'P' exponent markers in number tokens, as
    specified in C99 and C++17.
  - C++:
    xgettext now supports underscores in number tokens.
  - C++:
    xgettext now supports single-quotes in number tokens, as specified in
    C++14.
  - Shell:
    o The programs 'gettext', 'ngettext' now support a --context argument.
    o gettext.sh contains new function eval_pgettext and eval_npgettext
      for producing translations of messages with context.
  - Java:
    o xgettext now supports UTF-8 encoded .properties files (a new feature
      of Java 9).
    o The build system and tools now support Java 9, 10, and 11. On the
      other hand, support for old versions of Java (Java 5 and older,
      GCJ 4.2.x and older) has been dropped.
  - Perl:
    o Native support for context functions (pgettext, dpgettext, dcpgettext,
      npgettext, dnpgettext, dcnpgettext).
    o better detection of question mark and slash as operators (as opposed
      to regular expression delimiters).
  - Scheme:
    xgettext now parses the syntax for specialized byte vectors (#u8(...),
    #vu8(...), etc.) correctly.
  - Pascal:
    xgettext can now extract strings from .rsj files, produced by the
    Free Pascal compiler version 3.0.0 or newer.
  - Vala:
    xgettext now parses escape sequences in strings more accurately.
  - JavaScript:
    xgettext now parses template literals correctly.

* Runtime behaviour:
  - The interpretation of the language preferences on macOS has been fixed.
  - Per-thread locales are now also supported on Solaris 11.4.
  - The replacements for the printf()/fprintf()/... functions that are
    provided through <libintl.h> on native Windows and NetBSD are now POSIX
    compliant.  There is no conflict any more between these replacements
    and other possible replacements provided by gnulib or mingw.

* Libtextstyle:
  - This package installs a new library 'libtextstyle', together with a new
    header file <textstyle.h>.  It is a library for styling text output sent
    to a console or terminal emulator.
    Packagers: please see the suggested packaging hints in the file PACKAGING.

Log message:
Update gettext* to 0.19.6:

Version 0.19.6 - September 2015

* Programming languages support:
  - AppData:
    xgettext now supports AppData file format, used by software center
    applications (e.g., GNOME Software) to describe installable
    applications.

* A new macro AM_GNU_GETTEXT_REQUIRE_VERSION can be used to indicate
  autopoint to pull the latest available infrastructure, instead of
  the exact version specified with AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION.  When
  AM_GNU_GETTEXT_REQUIRE_VERSION is used, AM_GNU_GETTEXT_VERSION is
  ignored.

* po/Makefile.in.in can now insert the file $(DOMAIN).pot-header to
  $(DOMAIN).pot, instead of the standard header comments.

* Bug fixes:
  - Fix mishandling of gettext version numbers for minor releases, in
    po-mode.el and gettextize.
  - Fix build with --enable-relocatable.

Version 0.19.5 - July 2015

* xgettext now has a feature to perform syntax checks on msgid, which
  could enforce common styles of translatable strings, such as to
  prefer Unicode characters to the corresponding ASCII characters.
  They can be enabled with --check option or special "xgettext: "
  comment in the source code.  By default, no syntax checks are
  enabled.

* msgfilter and msgexec now have an option --newline, which appends a
  newline character to filter input and trims it from the filter
  output.  This would allow filter programs to be more POSIX friendly.

* The base Unicode standard is now updated to 8.0.0.  This
  particularly improves "\N{...}" notation handling of xgettext for
  Perl and Python.

* msginit is now capable of generating "Plural-Forms:" from Unicode
  CLDR.  This feature is still experimental, but you can try it by
  setting the GETTEXTCLDRDIR environment variable pointing to the
  directory where the CLDR archive is extracted.  The actual
  conversion is done by a helper program 'cldr-plural', which can be
  used as a generic converter and evaluator of CLDR plural forms.

* Programming languages support:
  - C++ with KDE: xgettext and msgfmt can now recognize KUIT (KDE User
    Interface Text) markup.  See the documentation section "KUIT
    Format Strings" for more info.
  - C++ with KDE: xgettext now recognizes all default KDE keywords.
    This removes the need for a long list of --keyword and --flag
    options to perform a reasonable extraction.

* Bug fixes:
  - xgettext C++11 raw string recognition is now stricter and don't
    accept unbalanced delimiters.
  - Suppress baseless warnings which msgfmt emits when processing a
    .desktop file.
  - xgettext line wrapping behaviour is now consistent between comment
    lines and non-comment lines.
  - Fix msgfilter-7 test failure on some platforms.
  - Fix VPATH build.
