Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.0.3anb1, Package name: slrn-1.0.3anb1, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

slrn ('S-Lang read news') is a newsreader, i.e. a program that accesses a
newsserver to read messages from the Internet News service (also known as
'Usenet'). It runs in console mode on various Unix-like systems (including
Linux), 32-bit Windows, OS/2, BeOS and VMS. Beside the usual features of a
newsreader slrn supports scoring rules to highlight, sort or kill articles
based on information from their header. It is highly customizable, allows
free key-bindings and can easily be extended using the sophisticated
S-Lang macro language. Offline reading is possible by using either
slrnpull (shipped with slrn) or a local newsserver (like leafnode or INN).

Log message:
all: migrate several HOMEPAGEs to https

pkglint --only "https instead of http" -r -F

With manual adjustments afterwards since pkglint 19.4.4 fixed a few
indentations in unrelated lines.

This mainly affects projects hosted at SourceForce, as well as
freedesktop.org, CTAN and GNU.

Version 1.0.3 release notes
===========================

  Version 1.0.3 is primarily a bug-fix release.  See changes.txt for
  details.

  Support for SSLv3 has been disabled since it is to POODLE attacks.

  On 32 bit systems, support has been added for files larger than 2GB.

  Support added for both 32 and 64 bit mingw and cygwin compilers.

Version 1.0.2 release notes
===========================

  Version 1.0.2 is primarily a bug-fix release.  See changes.txt for
  details.

  Note: slang version 2.2.3 or later is required.  Version 2.3.0 is
  the current version.

  The intrinsic function get_header_flags was modified to return the
  full set of flags when called with an optional argument.  Symbolic
  constants for the corresponding flags were added to the interpreter
  interface.

  The value for query_read_group_cutoff was increased to 1000.

  Support for building slrnpull on win32 systems was added.
