Stuart2.6.3+ Bug Fixes
Stuart2.6.3 Bug Fixes
Fix graphics character drawing. Some experimental code got out of hand
and effectively disabled graphics characters by default. Since this
was a one-line change, a new version number is barely worthwhile.
Stuart2.6.2 Bug Fixes
Fix to the search code. The search code wouldn't find certain patterns
correctly. For instance, given `-DDEBUG', it couldn't find `debug' in
a next search, though it could with a previous search. The problem was
the duplicate D. Now it correctly handles this case.
Mail should no longer launch if you are using a mailreader that listens
to the MailSendDemo port.
Workarounds for certain signal problems. Something changed in
the pty-related signal handling under NeXTSTEP3.2, and again under
NeXTSTEP3.3. As of yet, I really don't understand what the change was
(perhaps I should swing the entrails counterclockwise?), but I've found a
fix for at least one of the problems. `gnutar -ztvf barf.tar.gz' should
no longer complain about broken pipes when run in a Stuart window.
Stuart2.6.1 Bug Fixes
TermcapSpoofing wasn't spoofing. When you telnet into a remote
site, it left the cursor at the top of the screen. Now it stays
in one place.
Miniwindow problems. Sometimes Stuart crashed when unminiaturizing
a window. This appeared to be related to title changes while the
window was miniaturized. It usually seemed to happen when the
window was Miniaturized within Stuartrc, and unminiaturized from
the Windows menu or with a command-key.
OmniWeb `zaps' now can be dropped into Stuart windows, and are
pasted as text.
Mail should no longer launch if you are using a mailreader that
listens to the MailSendDemo port. Sorry, it doesn't work, yet.
Graphics characters print. Previously, graphics characters printed
as the corrosponding ASCII characters.
Color drawing, gray colors. When the colors are grayscale
(red==green==blue), Stuart uses PSsetgray() instead of NXSetColor().
So long as you don't introduce colors (on a shelf, for instance),
windows keep a low depth limit. This should speed things up for
people who don't use color on a color system (mono systems don't
use color depths in their windows in any case).
Stuart2.6 Bug Fixes
Cursor misdraw. In some cases the code to redraw the "normal" text
when the cursor moves drew a "phantom" selection. This has been
Selection misdrawing without scrollback. Selections in a window
without scrollback were not correctly moving with the text, resulting
in "persistent" selections, and visible selections not matching
the internal selections.
DeleteSendsBackspace. Wasn't working before, now it is.
ShortLineSpacing off. When ShortLineSpacing was turned off, the
code wasn't calculating the correct line height, resulting in
periodic off-by-one type errors and general garbage.
Cursor movement w/in selections. When moving the cursor within
the current selection, it didn't redraw the selected background.
ISOLatin and copy/paste. Paste wasn't translating to ISOLatin,
resulting in garbled input.
Backgrounds and printing. The print panel attributes button can
now select printing of attributes without background. Currently
this facility is not "smart" in that the foreground colors are
printed as-is. Use "No Atttributes" if your color scheme doesn't
