Default ncurses-5.9-1

Release Notes

This release is designed to be upward compatible from ncurses 5.0
through 5.8; very few applications will require recompilation,
depending on the platform. These are the highlights from the
change-log since ncurses 5.8 release.

This is a bug-fix release, correcting a small number of urgent
problems in the ncurses library from the 5.8 release.

It also improves the Ada95 binding:
* fixes a longstanding portability problem with its use of the
[3]set_field_type function. Because that function uses
variable-length argument lists, its interface with gnat does not
work with certain platforms.
* improves configurability and portability, particularly when built
separately from the main ncurses tree. The 5.8 release introduced
scripts which can be used to construct separate tarballs for the
Ada95 and ncurses examples.
Those were a proof of concept. For the 5.9 release, those scripts
are augmented with rpm- and dpkg-scripts used in test builds
against a variety of gnat- and system ncurses versions as old as
gnat 3.15 and ncurses 5.4 (see snapshots and systems tested
[4]here.
* additional improvements were made for portability of the ncurses
examples, adding rpm- and dpkg-scripts for test-builds. See
[5]this page for snapshots and other information.


Signoff both,
