Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.6.0nb1, Package name: libxkbcommon-1.6.0nb1, Maintainer: ryoon

xkbcommon is a library to handle keyboard descriptions, including
loading them from disk, parsing them and handling their state. It's
mainly meant for client toolkits, window systems, and other system
applications; currently that includes Wayland, kmscon, GTK+, Qt,
Clutter, and more.

libxkbcommon 1.6.0 - 2023-10-08
==================

API
---

### Breaking changes

- *Remove* keysyms that were intended for German T3 layout but are unused:

  - `XKB_KEY_dead_lowline`
  - `XKB_KEY_dead_aboveverticalline`
  - `XKB_KEY_dead_belowverticalline`
  - `XKB_KEY_dead_longsolidusoverlay`

  See the upstream [`xorgproto` \ 
MR](https://gitlab.freedesktop.org/xorg/proto/xorgproto/-/merge_requests/70). \ 
See hereinafter for further changes related to keysyms.

### New

- Add Compose iterator API to iterate the entries in a compose table:

  - `xkb_compose_table_entry_sequence`
  - `xkb_compose_table_entry_keysym`
  - `xkb_compose_table_entry_utf8`
  - `xkb_compose_table_iterator_new`
  - `xkb_compose_table_iterator_free`
  - `xkb_compose_table_iterator_next`

- *Structured log messages* with a message registry. There is an *ongoing* work
  to assign unique identifiers to log messages and add a corresponding error
  index documentation page:

  - The log entries are preceded with an identifier in the form `XKB-NNN`, where
    `NNN` is a decimal number.

  - The log entries can then be parsed with third-party tools, to check for
    specific identifiers.

  - The new documentation page “**Error index**” lists all the kind of error \ 
messages
    with their identifiers. The aim is that each entry could present detailed
    information on the error and how to fix it.

- Add a new warning for numeric keysyms references in XKB files: the preferred
  keysym reference form is its name or its Unicode value, if relevant.

- Add the upper bound `XKB_KEYSYM_MAX` to check valid keysyms.

- Add a warning when loading a keymap using RMLVO with no layout but with the
  variant set. The variant is actually discarded and both layout and variant are
  set to default values, but this was done previously with no warning, confusing
  end users.

- Add support for `modifier_map None { … }`. This feature is missing compared to
  the X11 implementation. It allows to reset the modifier map of a key.

- Update keysyms using latest [xorgproto] (commit: \ 
`1c8128d72df22843a2022576850bc5ab5e3a46ea`):

  - Additions:

    - `XKB_KEY_ordmasculine` ([xorgproto-68])
    - `XKB_KEY_guillemetleft` ([xorgproto-68])
    - `XKB_KEY_guillemetright` ([xorgproto-68])

    - `XKB_KEY_dead_hamza` ([xorgproto-71])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86EmojiPicker` ([xorgproto-44])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86Dictate` ([xorgproto-49])

    - `XKB_KEY_XF86CameraAccessDisable` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86CameraAccessToggle` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86NextElement` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86PreviousElement` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86AutopilotEngageToggle` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86MarkWaypoint` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86Sos` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86NavChart` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86FishingChart` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86SingleRangeRadar` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86DualRangeRadar` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86RadarOverlay` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86TraditionalSonar` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86ClearvuSonar` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86SidevuSonar` ([xorgproto-82])
    - `XKB_KEY_XF86NavInfo` ([xorgproto-82])

  - Deprecations:

    - `XKB_KEY_masculine`: use `XKB_KEY_ordmasculine` instead ([xorgproto-68])
    - `XKB_KEY_guillemotleft`: use `XKB_KEY_guillemetleft` instead ([xorgproto-68])
    - `XKB_KEY_guillemotright`: use `XKB_KEY_guillemetright` instead ([xorgproto-68])
    - `XKB_KEY_dead_small_schwa`: use `XKB_KEY_dead_schwa` instead ([xorgproto-78])
    - `XKB_KEY_dead_capital_schwa`: use `XKB_KEY_dead_SCHWA` instead ([xorgproto-78])

- Ongoing work to improve the documentation about XKB and its V1 format.

### Fixes

- Prevent `xkb_keysym_from_name` to parse out-of-range hexadecimal keysyms.

- Disallow producing NULL character with escape sequences `\0` and `\x0`.

- Prevent overflow of octal escape sequences by making `\400..\777` invalid.

- Prevent interpreting and emitting invalid Unicode encoding forms: surrogates
  are invalid in both UTF-32 and UTF-8.

- `xkb_keymap_new_from_buffer`: Allow for a NULL-terminated keymap string.

- Compose: Increase the limit of possible entries to handle huge Compose files.

Tools
-----

### New

- Add bash completions for `xkbcli` and its subcommands.

- `xkbcli interactive-*`: Add options `--short` to hide some fields.

- `xkbcli interactive-evdev`: Add `--includes` and `--include-defaults` options.

- Add `xkb-check-messages` *experimental* tool (not installed).
  It checks whether given log messages identifiers are supported.

### Fixes

- `xkbcli compile-keymap`: Allow to use without arguments.

- `xkbcli interactive-*`: Always print keycode.

- `xkbcli interactive-*`: Escape control characters for Unicode output, instead of
  printing them as-is, messing the output.

Build system
------------

- Bump required meson to 0.52.0.

- Allow `xkbcommon` to be used as a subproject.

- Improve Windows compilation.

   2023-06-06 14:42:56 by Taylor R Campbell | Files touched by this commit (1319)
Log message:
Mass-change BUILD_DEPENDS to TOOL_DEPENDS outside mk/.

Almost all uses, if not all of them, are wrong, according to the
semantics of BUILD_DEPENDS (packages built for target available for
use _by_ tools at build-time) and TOOL_DEPEPNDS (packages built for
host available for use _as_ tools at build-time).

No change to BUILD_DEPENDS as used correctly inside buildlink3.

Log message:
libxkbcommon: update to 1.5.0.

libxkbcommon 1.5.0 - 2023-01-02
==================

- Add `xkb_context` flag `XKB_CONTEXT_NO_SECURE_GETENV` and `rxkb_context` flag
  `RXKB_CONTEXT_NO_SECURE_GETENV`.

  xkbcommon uses `getenv_secure()` to obtain environment variables. This flag
  makes xkbcommon use `getenv()` instead.

  This is useful for some clients that have relatively benign capabilities set,
  like CAP_SYS_NICE, that also want to use e.g. the XKB configuration from the
  environment and user configs in XDG_CONFIG_HOME.

  Contributed by Ronan Pigott.

- Fix crash in `xkbcli interactive-wayland` under a compositor which supports
  new versions of the xdg-shell protocol.

  Contributed by Jan Alexander Steffens (heftig).

- Fix some MSVC build issues.

- Fix some issues when including xkbcommon as a meson subproject.

- meson>=0.51 is now required.

libxkbcommon 1.4.1 - 2022-05-21
==================

- Fix compose sequence overriding (common prefix) not working correctly.
  Regressed in 1.2.0.

  Contributed by Weng Xuetian.

- Remove various bogus currency sign (particulary Euro and Korean Won) entries
  from the keysym <-> Unicode mappings. They prevented the real
  keysyms/codepoints for these from mapping correctly.
