only five minutes ago. NEWS file has a lot of changes and fixes.
This version is not usable with UTF-8, yet.
Is it time to revisit this yet? 1.19.1 was released over a year ago...
nobody cared, closing...
Well, I care...
the version of groff-1.19.1 solves at least ten of my open groff bugs. I ported
all the debian UTF-8 patches for this version of groff by hand (we have the
groff now updated to 1.19.1 in CVS already), but it still prints the UTF-8
characters incorrectly what leads to a heavy mess when man page is displayed. I
don't feel like I want to build this version of groff before the UTF-8 issues
I try to patch new version from upstream 1.19.2, but they rewrite code so I
can't patch it correct for UTF-8. It has to wait for version, where is UTF-8 ok.
Upstream made new version 126.96.36.199 with update groffer. I'm testing it.
In devel is groff-188.8.131.52. 1.19 still doesn't support utf-8.
