### Changes
- Revert to Make.
[1.17.1][] - 2020-02-23
-----------------------
### Fixes
- Fix #38: Fix for multiline representing as one line
- Fix packaging, missing files in libeditline1, regression from 1.16.0
- Fix packaging, update to latest std version
- Fix formatting of function names in man page
- Restore tar.gz distribution, for usability on systems that do not
have xz in their default install
[1.17.0][] - 2020-01-05
-----------------------
### Changes
- Simple multi-line support by Dima Volynets, @dvolynets
### Fixes
- Fix return value from `read_history()` and `write_history()`, could
return `errno` instead of `EOF` to indicate error. Now both functions
have uniform return values on error
- Handle internal `realloc()` errors better. Now memory is not leaked
if `realloc()` fails
- Fix possible NULL pointer dereference in key binding lookup function
[1.16.1][] - 2019-06-07
-----------------------
### Changes
- Major updates to the `editline.3` man page
- Cleanup of examples `cli.c` and `fileman.c`
- Add example of hidden input prompt to `cli.c`
### Fixes
- Fix #20: `configure --disable-eof` does not bite
- Fix #23: Make Ctrl-L clear the screan instead of starting a new line
Like Ctrl-D, which exits, Ctrl-L only clears the screen when the line
is empty and the cursor is at the start of the line, otherwise Ctrl-L
will redraw/refresh the current line.
- Fix #24: Fix behavior when TTY is narrower than column width, by Will Dietz
- Fix #25: Avoid continuously duplicate commands in history
- Fix #31: Aborting i-search with Ctrl-C should not generate signal

-----------------------
Event loop callback support.
### Changes
- `rl_unintialize()`, new function to free all memory, by Claus Fischer
- `rl_insert_text()`, new GNU Readline compat function
- `rl_refresh_line()`, new GNU Readline compat function
- `rl_callback_*()`, alternate interface to plain `readline()` for event
loops. Modeled after the GNU Readline API
- `rl_completion_entry_function`, and `rl_attempted_completion_function`
are two new GNU Readline compat user hooks for the completion framework
- `rl_completion_matches()` and `rl_filename_completion_function()`
are two new GNU Readline compat functions
- Add new example: `fileman.c` from GNU Readline to demonstrate the
level of compatibility of the revamped completion framework
- Add support for Ctrl-Right and Ctrl-Left, forward/backward word
- Add .deb package to official release target
### Fixes
- Fixed header guards, avoid using leading `__`
- Spell check fixes
- Remove duplicate code in history check
- Use `NULL` instead of `0`, and `-1` instead of `NULL`, where applicable
- Misc. minor Coverity Scan fixes
- Misc. minor fixes to `testit.c` example code
- Add `-Wextra` to std `CFLAGS`
- Check `fclose()` return value in in `write_history()` and `read_history()`
- Initialize global variables and reset to `NULL` on `free()`
- Fix off-by-one in forward kill word, avoid deleting too much
- Skip (or kill) leading whitespace when skipping (or killing) forwards
[1.15.3][] - 2017-09-07
-----------------------
Bug fix release.
### Changes
- Refactor all enable/disable configure options, same problem as in #7

### Fixes
- Do not assume a termcap library exists, check for `tgetent()` in
curses, ncurses, tinfo and termcap libraries
- Call `tty_flush()` when user calls `rl_forced_update_display()`
to prevent screen becoming garbled. Patch by Jakub Pawlowski

introduced in [1.14.1][]. Fixed by @TobyGoodwin
