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

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

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.18, Package name: flnews-0.18, Maintainer: micha

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

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):
- Multiple servers
- Offline mode (for network connection via dialup line)

Required to run:
[security/openssl] [misc/xdg-utils] [x11/fltk13]

Required to build:
[pkgtools/x11-links] [x11/xcb-proto] [x11/fixesproto4] [pkgtools/cwrappers] [x11/xorgproto]

Package options: inet6, nls, xdbe, xdg-utils

news/flnews: Update to 0.18

- Searching for Unicode string in current article is now supported (case
  insensitive variant based on Unicode case folding algorithm)
- Unicode database updated to version 13.0.0 (CaseFolding.txt added)
- The new 'force_unicode' entry in configfile set to a nonzero value sends
  all outgoing articles in Unicode, if they contain non-ASCII characters
- Dark background color is now usable
- MIME conformance reached (as defined in RFC 2049 Section 2)
- If selected text is present, quote only selected text for followup
- XDG desktop entry and icon theme added (option CFG_XDG_DISABLE)
- Configuration window in GUI now allows to disable the "User-Agent" header
  field for outgoing articles
- It is now possible to enable AUTHINFO USER/PASS without encrypted connection
  This allows to use stunnel instead of the internal TLS module
- TLS module no longer calls deprecated functions HMAC*(), RSA_size() and
  SSL_get_peer_certificate() for OpenSSL API 3.0.0

            reintroduce the test removed for 0.16
           Bugfix: BSD version of ntohl() for old systems was broken
           Bugfix: ISO-2022-JP decoder: Mask for unassigned codepoints fixed
           Bugfix: SHA2 support in OpenSSL 1.0.0 must be explicitly enabled

it's not
            found in current group)
           Clickable References added (articles displayed in separate window)
           Search for Message-ID added to the Tools menu (Keyboard shortcut
            is Ctrl-s)

           Menu entry "Article->Mark as unread" (Ctrl-u) changed to \

           Command line option "-4" added (force usage of IPv4 network \ 
           Flowed format: The 'flowed_insert_crlf' entry in configfile adds an
            empty line separator after every paragraph that ends with an empty
            line. Defaults to 0 (former behaviour)
           Flowed format: The behaviour of 'flowed_insert_crlf' can be requested
            by the sender of an article with "InsLine=yes" in the \ 
           TLS module can now use OpenSSL 3 API (required for FFDHE group
            negotiation with TLSv1.2 and TLSv1.3 protocols)
           TLS module can now use LibreSSL 3 (formerly major version 2 was used
            to identify LibreSSL and distinguish it from OpenSSL)
           TLS modules compile time option 'CFG_USE_TLS_OWNCERTS' replaced by
            the new 'tls_owncerts' entry in configfile
           TLS modules experimental compile time option 'CFG_USE_TLS_CRLS'
            replaced by normal option 'CFG_TLS_CRLS_DISABLE'. Default is to use
            no CRLs (former behaviour) because this option increases the system
            requirements (to POSIX.1-2001 or XSI extension)
           TLS module now supports new 'crl_check' entry in configfile (ignored
            if CFG_TLS_CRLS_DISABLE is nonzero)
           TLS module now prints real LibreSSL version instead of generic 2.0.0
           TLS module no longer supports options 'CFG_USE_TLS_DHPARAM_CHECK' and
            'CFG_USE_TLS_SETSIGALG'. They were obsoleted by the OpenSSL 1.1 API
           Unicode database updated to version 12.1.0
           GUI module no longer supports experimental FLTK 1.3 option
            'USE_X11_GLYPH_SUBSTITUTION'. It was obsoleted by FLTK 1.4
           Modified LaTeX documentation to work with recent doxygen
