As you might notice, I renamed repo to elinks.
Thanks to all involved in this release.
ELinks 0.13.5
Released on 2020-08-30
* added clipboard selection using keyboard. #59
* fixed drawing menus over emoji characters. #60
* encoding to utf-8 and decoding back in python's pre_format_html_hook
This is likely the last release of 0.13.x series.

* added the ui.clipboard_file config option
ELinks 0.13.3:
Released on 2020-06-29.
* configure option --with-luapkg=name
You can choose lua version at compilation time. For example: --with-luapkg=luajit

not enabled by default
* docs updates (Guido Cella)
* fixes related to ui.mouse_disable and xterm-like terminals (Thanks sgerwk)
* show an alert when the search string is not found (sgerwk)
ELinks 0.13.2:
Released on 2020-05-31.
* command line option -remote search(...) (thanks sgerwk)
* command line option -bind-address
* config option ui.mouse_disable (sgerwk)
* config option ui.tostop

ELinks 0.13.1:
Released on 2020-01-31.
* Fixed issue with uploading files to local cgi.
* Python scripts in contrib converted to python3.
ELinks 0.13.0:
Released on 2019-12-27.
* The protocol.fsp.sort option has been removed. ELinks always sorts.
* bug 1024: Verify the host name or IP address in the server certificate
if connection.ssl.cert_verify is not 0.
* The configure script is no longer part of tarball, you must generate it.
For example running ./autogen.sh
* major bug 181: Slave ELinks processes can now run an external editor.
This used to work in the master process only.
* major bug 722: Filter CSS according to media types. New option
* bug 638: Propagate the existence of $DISPLAY from slave terminals to
mailcap test commands.
* bugs 762, 1082: Small memory leak in goto_current_link/goto_imgmap
* bug 963: New option document.css.ignore_display_none.
* bug 977: Fixed crash when opening in new tab a non link with onclick
* bug 1008: File upload fields in HTML forms now stream the files to
the server, instead of reading them to memory in advance. This lets
you upload larger files. The downsides are that ELinks may use a
cached response even if you have modified a file between requests,
and that ELinks can send inconsistent data if you modify a file
while it is being uploaded.
* bug 1054: Don't abort downloads when closing the terminal from which
they were started. When such a download ends, display the message
in the most recently used terminal. If the user chooses
``Background and Notify'' via the download manager in some terminal,
reassociate the download with that terminal. These changes do not
apply to downloads to external handlers.
* Really retry forever when connection.retries = 0.
* enhancement: Session-specific options. Any options changed with
toggle-* actions no longer affect other tabs or other terminals.
* Do not crash when document.browse.minimum_refresh_time = 0 and
a document has a meta refresh with a delay of 0.
* Properly update link highlighting and status bar information when the
repeat prefix is changed.
* Handle SSL rehandshakes
* Fix compatibility with Ruby >= 1.9
* enhancement 15: Domain-specific options. Use set_domain in
elinks.conf to e.g. disable cookies for google.com. The option
manager window does not yet support this.
* enhancement 867: Use bracketed paste mode on xterm. This requires
xterm patch #228 or later configured with --enable-readline-mouse.
* enhancement 824: Experimental support for combining characters.
See features.conf for details.
* enhancement: Add a new entry Link Info under Link main menu.
* enhancement: Indicate backgrounded downloads using an unused led.
* enhancement: Display the number of ECMAScript interpreters that have
been allocated for documents in the Resources dialog.
* Fedora enhancement 346861: Add support for nss_compat_ossl library
(OpenSSL replacement).
* enhancement: ``elinks --dump'' uses box-drawing characters if supported
by the charset.
* enhancement 1070: Support 256 colors on fbterm-1.4.
* enhancement 1075: Scrolling the entire contents of dialog boxes.
Especially useful for multi-file BitTorrent downloads.
* Report if the Lua function edit_bookmark_dialog receives the wrong
number or types of arguments instead of silently failing.
* enhancement: Add ``Invalidate'' button to the cache manager.
* enhancement: Add ``Search contents'' button to the cache manager with
which one can search through the cache items' data rather than their
* enhancement: Add rudimentary support for the HTML5 media elements,
<video> and <audio>.
* enhancement: Add move-half-page-up and move-half-page-down actions.
* enhancement: Add option to change overlap for vertical scrolling.
* enhancement: HTML meta refresh allows semicolons in URLs, and the
syntax is more like in Firefox.
* link against lua51 not lua50
* SpiderMonkey must be mozjs-17.0. This version is latest with C API.
Find it with pkg-config.
* using iconv for some multibyte charsets. It works if the terminal codepage
is UTF-8. More charsets will be added on demand.
* enhancement: support SSL client certificate
* python scripting is Python3 only
* brotli and zstd encodings
* possibility to make use of libevent instead of select for event loop
* terminfo queries for output (not input) as compilation option
ELinks 0.12pre6
Released on 2012-10-30.
Security fix:
* bug 1124, CVE-2012-4545: Do not delegate GSSAPI credentials in HTTP
Negotiate or GSS-Negotiate authentication. Reported by Marko Myllynen.
(ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported GSSAPI; earlier
releases are not vulnerable.)
Fixed crashes and hangs:
* critical bug 943: Don't let user JavaScripts call any methods of
``elinks.action'' in tabs that do not have the focus. If a tab was
closed with ``elinks.action.tab_close'' while it had pop-up windows,
ELinks could crash; as a precaution, don't allow other actions
either. (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported
* critical bug 1083: Avoid an infinite loop when trying to decompress
malformed data. Caused by the bug 1068 fix in ELinks 0.12pre3.
* Fix a possible crash or information disclosure on big-endian 64-bit
systems using HTTP Negotiate or GSS-Negotiate authentication.
* Dropped support for SEE. (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release
that supported SEE.)
* Guile 2.0.0 (released on 2011-02-16) changed its license to
LGPLv3-or-later, which is not compatible with the GPLv2 that covers
ELinks. Also, Guile has deprecated many of the functions that
ELinks calls.
Other changes:
* major bug 764: Correctly initialize options on big-endian 64-bit
* bug 983: Give preference to the Content-Type specified in the HTTP
header over that specified via the HTML meta tag.
* bug 1084: Allow option names containing '+' and '*' in the option
* bug 1112: Map most numeric character references &#x80; ... &#x9F;
to graphical characters also when the output charset is UTF-8.
(ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported UTF-8 as the
terminal charset, and ELinks 0.12pre5 was the first release that
supported UTF-8 as the dump charset.)
* minor bug 1113: Fix a small memory leak if a mailcap file is malformed.
* minor bug 1114: Decode SGML entities and NCRs only once in link/@title
and other attributes.
* build: Fix several warnings reported by GCC 4.7.1. Harmless at
runtime but could break the build if configured --enable-debug.
(This version does not fix all such warnings.)
ELinks 0.12pre5:
Released on 2009-07-08.
* Debian bug 534835: Check the return values of some SpiderMonkey
functions, to avoid crashes if out of memory.
* minor bug 1017: To work around HTTP server bugs, disable
protocol.http.compression by default, until ELinks can report
decompression errors or automatically retry the connection.
* enhancement: The French translation was updated.
Bugs that should be removed from NEWS before the 0.12.0 release:
* critical bug 1081: To fix crashes caused by different definitions of
regfree() in TRE and in the system libc, link with TRE before any
other libraries. ELinks 0.12pre4 was the first release that had
this bug.
* Searching for more than one fullwidth (e.g. Japanese) character now
* bug 1080: Support ``--dump-color-mode'' with ``--dump-charset UTF-8''.
Neither of those worked before ELinks 0.12pre1.
ELinks 0.12pre4:
Released on 2009-05-31.
* Debian build bug 529821: Use ``pkg-config gnutls'' instead of
``libgnutls-config'', which is not included in GNUTLS 2.7.x.
You can no longer specify the location of GNUTLS using
``configure --with-gnutls=DIR''.
Other changes:
* critical bug 1077: Fix crash opening a ``javascript:'' link in a new
* Debian bug 528661: If using GNUTLS 2.1.7 or later, disable various
TLS extensions (including CERT and SERVERNAME) to help handshaking
with the SSLv3-only bugzilla.novell.com.
* Debian build bug 526349: Include asciidoc.py from AsciiDoc 7.1.2,
to remove all dependencies on the installed version.
* build enhancement: Recognize ``configure --without-tre''.
Bugs that should be removed from NEWS before the 0.12.0 release:
* critical bug 1071: Fix crash in get_dom_node_child. ELinks 0.12pre1
was the first release that had this bug.
* bug 765: Opening a new tab no longer asks about the document of the
previous tab. ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that had this
ELinks 0.12pre3:
Released on 2009-03-29. This release also included the changes listed
under ``ELinks 0.11.6'' below.
* bug 1060: Regexp searching now requires the TRE library.
* lzma disabled by default. It's rarely used and doesn't build with new xz.
Other changes:
* critical: Fix assertion failure if IMG/@usemap refers to a different
* Preserve newlines in hidden input fields, and submit them as CRLF.
Previously, they could turn into spaces or disappear entirely.
* Perl scripts can use modules that dynamically load C libraries, like
XML::LibXML::SAX does.
* bug 153: Preserve Unicode characters in XBEL bookmark files.
However, Unicode in URIs (really IRIs) does not work reliably yet;
this is being tracked as bug 1066.
* bug 885: Convert xterm titles to ISO-8859-1 by default, but add an
option to disable this. When removing control characters from a
title, note the charset. Don't truncate titles to the width of the
* bug 1061: Correctly truncate UTF-8 titles in the tab bar.
* bug 1068: ELinks used to display a blank or truncated page if an
HTTP/1.1 server sent a compressed body with incorrect Content-Length.
That has now been fixed, and a new option (protocol.http.compression)
has been added.
* Don't crash when the search-toggle-regex action is used and no regular
expression support is compiled in.
* minor bug 761: When reading bookmarks from an XBEL file, distinguish
attribute names from attribute values.
* enhancement: Updated ISO 8859-7, ISO 8859-16, KOI8-R, and MacRoman.
Bugs that should be removed from NEWS before the 0.12.0 release:
* critical bug 1067: Fixed a crash in the RSS parser that ``configure
--enable-html-highlight'' enables. ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first
release that had this bug.
* bug 1069: ELinks didn't report ECMAScript errors, even if the
ecmascript.error_reporting option was turned on. ELinks 0.12pre2
was the first release that had this bug.
ELinks 0.12pre2:
Released on 2008-09-21. This release also included the changes listed
under ``ELinks 0.11.5'' below.
* bug 954, enhancement 952: Keep track of ECMAScript form and input
objects instead of constructing new ones on every access. When the
corresponding ELinks internal objects are destroyed, detach the
ECMAScript objects from them, to prevent crashes. (Bug 954 was
first added in ELinks 0.11.4, and the bug 620 fix in ELinks 0.12pre1
made crashes more likely.)
* critical bug 1029 in user SMJS: Prefer JS_CallFunctionValue over
JS_CallFunction, which can crash if given a closure.
* critical bug 1031: Use the same JSRuntime for both user SMJS and
scripts on web pages, to work around SpiderMonkey bug 378918.
* bug 1013: Don't assume errno values are between 0 and 100000.
* bug 1022: Add connection.ssl.trusted_ca_file setting for GnuTLS.
Before this, ELinks did not trust any certificate authorities when
it used GnuTLS, so certificate verification always failed if you
enabled it at connection.ssl.cert_verify.
* bug 1040: Blacklist servers that don't support TLS. This reduces
SSL errors especially in HTTP POST requests using GnuTLS.
* bugs 1007, 1041: Display unrecognized lines in FTP directory
listings, instead of annoying the user with error messages.
* Hurd bug 22861: Work around select() falsely reporting exceptions
in pipes.
* minor bug 951: SpiderMonkey scripting objects used to prevent ELinks
from removing files from the memory cache.
* build bug 1044: Check whether -rdynamic works with libraries.
With Sun Studio 11 on Solaris 9, it reportedly doesn't.
Bugs that should be removed from NEWS before the 0.12.0 release:
* critical: Fix crash after a tab was opened during reload. This was
triggered by the bug 620 fix in ELinks 0.12pre1.
* critical bug 1018: Avoid an assertion failure when selecting a value
from a pop-up menu for an input field in a tab that is no longer
current, e.g. because another tab was opened with elinks -remote.
This bug was first released in ELinks 0.12pre1.
* major bug 1026 in user SMJS: Protect the callback of elinks.load_uri
from the garbage collector. The elinks.load_uri method was added in
ELinks 0.12pre1.
* bug 955: Reset buttons no longer run FORM/@onsubmit, and
``harmless'' buttons no longer submit the form. ELinks 0.12pre1
was the first release that had these bugs.
* bug 1033: Fix memory leak in ECMAScript window.open. ELinks 0.12pre1
was the first release that had this bug.
* bug 1034: ``Content-Encoding: deflate'' allows a zlib header as
specified in RFC 2616.
* Global ECMAScript functions alert, open, and setTimeout again work
with SEE. ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that supported SEE
at all.
* build bug 1045: Fix ``void function cannot return value'' in
never_for_this_site() of src/formhist/formhist.c. ELinks 0.12pre1
was the first release that had this bug.
ELinks 0.12pre1:
Released on 2008-07-01. This release also included the changes listed
under ``ELinks 0.11.4'' below.
Notable new features:
* enhancement 822: UTF-8 as terminal charset, not merely UTF-8 I/O
of a unibyte codepage as in previous versions. Double-cell (aka
fullwidth) and supplementary characters work too, but combining
characters and right-to-left text do not. The only multibyte
charset ELinks can decode is still UTF-8, so if the server outputs
e.g. Shift-JIS, you'd better recode with a proxy. See more notes
in features.conf.
* enhancement 844: SMB protocol using libsmbclient. This replaces
the smbclient-based code that was disabled in ELinks 0.11.2.
Unfortunately, Samba 3.2.0 and later seem GPLv2 incompatible.
* ECMAScript support is now disabled by default. It has known
bugs 548 and 771 with which malicious web pages can hang ELinks,
and its security goals are undocumented. If you must enable
ECMAScript support, it would be prudent to restrict the ELinks
process with a sandbox of some kind.
* ECMAScript support no longer works with SpiderMonkey versions
earlier than JS1.5 RC3a.
* Gzip decompression support now requires zlib or later.
* bugs 871, 752: The numbering of terminal.*.colors no longer depends
on config options. This change makes elinks.conf portable between
different configurations but unfortunately not between this and
previous versions.
* Changed Python goto_url_hook(current) to goto_url_hook(new). The
hook can call the new function elinks.current_url() if desired.
The Python scripting back-end is much more featureful than in
previous releases, but it is still considered experimental.
* Guile scripting reads hooks.scm rather than internal-hooks.scm.
(It still reads user-hooks.scm, too.)
* critical bug 723: fix dangling pointer crash when following a link
in a frame
* critical bug 756: ``assertion (cached)->object.refcount >= 0 failed''
after HTTP proxy was changed
* critical bug 869: long mailcap entry buffer overflow (non-security)
when downloading
* tabs opened by -remote now go behind existing dialogs
* major bug 534, enhancement 517: fix HTTP gzip and bzip2
decompression, and add deflate and LZMA (requires LZMA Utils)
* major bug 503: various fixes in parsing and updating of elinks.conf
* Debian bug 257762: turn terminal transparency off by default
* bug 770: when the user chooses to resume an HTTP download, abort the
automatically started one and start a new one with the right range
* bug 724: better parsing of escape sequences and control
sequences from the terminal
* bug 948: fix wrong UTF-8 output after the charset menu was used
* bug 816: convert entity references in input/@value only once
* bug 916: if a mailcap entry has no %s, provide the file as stdin
* bug 744: don't change ``//'' to ``/'' in URIs
* bug 766: speed up CSS
* bug 355: add documents displayed via ``What to do'' dialog to the
global history
* encode and decode filenames in FSP URLs
* don't use a busy cache entry if it has expired or should be
reloaded. See elinks-users mail from 28 Oct 2005.
* several accesskey fixes
* in Lua: don't write to the string returned by lua_tostring
* minor bug 972: preserve the background color and underlining in
spaces when justifying
* minor bug 284: render closing bracket for HTML element SUB in the
same line; don't let it fall to the next
* minor: show quote characters for HTML element Q, rather than italics
* trivial bug 387: treat &#013; inside <pre>...</pre> as a newline
* trivial bug 930: refresh status bar when key prefix is eaten
* trivial bug 776: ``elinks -remote http://elinks.cz/'' no longer clears
the screen

* enhancement: HTTP negotiate-auth using GSSAPI
* enhancement: FSP progress indicator and password prompt
* enhancement: autocreate directories needed to download a file
* enhancement: ``Add server'' button in the cookie manager
* enhancement 887: ``Save'' in the cookie manager now saves cookies
even if unmodified
* enhancement 145: internal clipboard support
* enhancement: new main actions move-cursor-line-start,
move-link-down-line, move-link-left-line, move-link-right-line,
* enhancement: new edit actions kill-word-back, move-backward-word,
* enhancements 687, 688: options ui.tabs.top, ui.show_menu_bar_always
* enhancement: highlight links as one enters link prefixes
* enhancement: backspace backs out the last digit of the prefix
* enhancement: in text type-ahead searching, don't follow current link
on enter
* enhancement: add support for parsing space separated CSS class
attribute values
* enhancement: make meta refresh content attribute parsing more tolerant
* enhancement: recognize meta http-equiv="cache-control" even if no
* enhancement: mouse wheel support over GPM (contrib/gpm-wheel.patch),
and on BSD via moused -z 4
* enhancement: 24-bit truecolor mode
* enhancement 622: -dump-color-mode
* enhancement 994: treat only termios.c_cc[VERASE] as "Backspace"
* enhancement: support Ctrl+Alt+letter key combinations
* enhancement 381: reduce memory consumption of codepages and some
other arrays
* enhancement in user SMJS: new properties/functions elinks.action,
elinks.execute, elinks.globhist, elinks.load_uri, elinks.vs
Build system and compile-time errors (ignore if you don't build ELinks):
* serious Debian bug 464384: fix warnings in alignof, ssl_connect, and
printing of off_t values
* bug 725: fix version checking for Ruby in 'configure'
* enhancement: if make -k was used and a sub-Make fails, build the
rest before propagating
* enhancement: make uninstall
* experimental enhancements: --with-python=DIRECTORY, --with-gc=DIRECTORY
* experimental enhancement: Win32 port (build with MinGW MSYS)
Changes in the experimental ECMAScript support:
* disabled by default, as mentioned under ``Incompatibilities'' above
* execute event-handler scripts as function bodies, so ``return''
statements work as intended
* fix error ``forms.namedItem is not a function''
* enhancement: SEE ECMAScript backend, an alternative to SpiderMonkey
* enhancement: handling onsubmit
* workaround: window.open remembers the last few URLs and doesn't
reopen them when incremental rendering reruns the onload script
* enhancement: better handling of form.action assignments
* enhancement: form[x] looks up controls also by 'id', not only 'name'
* enhancement: added document.location.href, input.selectedIndex,
window.setTimeout, window.status
Changes in the experimental NNTP client:
* HTML escape header field values
* Add support for handling RFC2047 encoded words
* Improve listing of articles for groups
Changes in the experimental SGML/DOM implementation:
* enhancement: minimalistic RSS renderer
* enhancement: source highlighting also recognizes
application/xhtml+xml and application/docbook+xml. It doesn't yet
support arbitrary XML though.
* enhancement: make it possible to use more CSS properties with the
source highlighting
* enhancement: handle <base href=""> for HTML source rendering
* enhancement: add support for scanning comment endings such as
'--!>' correctly
* enhancement: incremental parsing
* and more.
ELinks 0.11.7:
Released on 2009-08-22.
* critical bug 1077: fix crash opening a ``javascript:'' link in a new
* major bug 764: remove int/long/pointer type punning in union
option_value, especially harmful on sparc64
ELinks 0.11.6:
Released on 2009-03-21.
* critical: fix double-free crash if EOF immediately follows </MAP>
* critical bug 1053: fix crash if a download finishes after ELinks has
closed the terminal from which the download was started
* major bug 1004: ignore locales when comparing HTML element names and
similar strings, so e.g. ``title'' matches ``TITLE'' even in the
Turkish locale
* minor: clicking a link with the mouse activates that link, rather
than the one selected with move-cursor-* actions
* build bug 1047: attempt to make inline functions satisfy C99 6.7.4p3
