./news/flnews, Fast and lightweight USENET newsreader with GUI

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.16, Package name: flnews-0.16, Maintainer: michael.baeuerle

flnews is a client with graphical user interface to read USENET newsgroups.
It is intended for POSIX compliant operating systems running the X window
system.

The main development goals are (in order of importance):
- No bloat
- Support for old workstations
- Standard compliance
- Be conservative in what you do, be liberal in what you accept from others
- Compatibility with other newsreaders
- Usable X display redirection via network (or ssh tunnel)
- Warn users about things that are not forbidden but considered "bad practice"

Features that are currently not implemented (or not usable yet):
- UUCP
- Multiple servers
- Offline mode (for network connection via dialup line)

Log message:
all: replace SUBST_SED with the simpler SUBST_VARS

pkglint -Wall -r --only "substitution command" -F

With manual review and indentation fixes since pkglint doesn't get that
part correct in every case.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

           Bugfix: The code that generates the attribute "reply to own \

            now checks the Message-IDs too (to avoid errors if the parent
            article is missing in the hierarchy)
           Bugfix: Header parser and MIME parser fixed to correctly handle
            MIME entity delimiters (for boundary strings that contain spaces)

            different purpose since Unicode 9.0) (Reported by Marcel Logen)
           TLS: Protocol version TLSv1.3 according to RFC8446 is now supported

           Support for reproducible builds added (option 'CFG_REPRODUCIBLE')
           Some checks for system header files removed to speed up configuration
            (Build fails in any case if they are missing)
           Documentation updated
