only five minutes ago. NEWS file has a lot of changes and fixes.

Comment 3 Thomas Woerner 2003-07-07 10:55:15 EDT
This version is not usable with UTF-8, yet.
Comment 4 Aleksey Nogin 2005-06-08 21:14:31 EDT
Is it time to revisit this yet? 1.19.1 was released over a year ago...
Comment 5 acount closed by user 2005-06-14 10:34:57 EDT
nobody cared, closing...
Comment 6 Aleksey Nogin 2005-06-14 12:34:15 EDT
Well, I care...

Hello Aleksey,

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
are gone.
Comment 8 Marcela Mašláňová 2006-09-12 01:51:56 EDT
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.
Comment 9 Marcela Mašláňová 2006-10-09 05:56:51 EDT
Upstream made new version with update groffer. I'm testing it.
Comment 10 Marcela Mašláňová 2006-10-24 06:24:12 EDT
In devel is groff- 1.19 still doesn't support utf-8.
