Log Message:
Update to 1.4.8, provided by Mayuresh on pkgsrc-users.

* Changes since 1.4.7
This is mostly a bugfix release.

** fix cmd_sfdump with multiple screens
Broken since last release, from Joshua Leners.

** respect --enable-history=no
From Jeroen Roovers (jer@gentoo).

** fix for sloppy.c
The ugly sloppy.c had "a bug".  It may be fixed now.

** README improvements
From Jeff Abrahamson.

* Changes since 1.4.6
** More fixes and code cleanup.

** UTF-8 editing support in the input bar

** get rid of "XGetWMName failed" spam on stderr
Introduced in the previous release, sorry!

** groups can now be renumbered (`gnumber')

** contrib/, fancy calendar shell script to use instead of `time'

** fix `meta', which was sending garbage and made firefox unusable

** handle errors about missing config files
- ratpoison -f missing-config-file -> error
- unreadable ~/.ratpoisonrc file -> warning

** respect --sysconfdir for the global ratpoisonrc file
Rather than a hardcoded /etc/ratpoisonrc location.

** rpws gains a new `current' command (prints the current workspace)

** new manpage, mdoc(7) formatted

** X socket closed before spawning processes
Let's save those precious file descriptors.

** DWIM windows/groups names matching
Window and group names are first looked up for exact match; in last
resort a fuzzy match is attempted.

** try to cope with unset/empty HOME env. variable

** ratpoison.el is now installed at the proper location
ie. in $prefix/share/emacs/site-lisp/

** ratpoison now restricts permissions on your history file

* Changes since 1.4.5
** *Lots* of reliability fixes in ratpoison itself
Please check out the ChangeLog for more details.

** Build process cleanup
e.g. detection of getline() was fixed, build is ok with old gcc's (2.95)

** ratpoison -c now reports errors ($? != 0)

** UTF-8 text is now printed correctly
Both with and without Xft support.

** contrib/ cleanup
Scripts should be more portable, ruby bindings work with newer ruby versions.

** New newwindow and titlechanged hooks

** Functionality was added to rpws
It can now move windows to other workspaces; workspaces can be dumped and
