Comment 1 Thomas E. Dickey 2011-12-13 05:31:15 EST
By the way, I'm working on #277.  The only regression fixed in that is for a change last touched in #270 (before Fedora's current version), so #276 is at least as stable as #271 as far as I can tell.
Comment 2 Miroslav Lichvar 2011-12-13 05:58:33 EST
Fedora 16 has 271. but rawhide is at 276 since Oct 11. Not sure what exactly future on that web page means, but it might need an update.

This bug has version set to rawhide, but I assume you'd like to see it updated in F16 too?
Comment 3 Thomas E. Dickey 2011-12-13 06:36:58 EST
yes - that would address the problem as reported to me
Comment 4 Miroslav Lichvar 2011-12-13 06:47:13 EST
Ok, I'll wait for 277 and prepare an F16 update.
Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2011-12-13 06:57:46 EST
ok - perhaps this week (I have 3-4 items on my to-do list)
Comment 6 Thomas E. Dickey 2011-12-31 09:57:22 EST
I'm still working on #277.  There were 2 items that I made no
progress on (both have existing workarounds), and in the
meantime I picked up 2 new Debian reports that I'm working on.

Debian #640464 sounds like a regression introduced by the
event-merging in #274, so I have to investigate that before
I'm done for #277.
Comment 7 Thomas E. Dickey 2012-01-08 09:59:49 EST
Debian #640464 turned out to not be xterm.  I spent the
intervening time doing regression builds, and released
#277 yesterday.
