  • 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 #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.
