pkgsrc/www/lynx: Makefile PLIST distinfo
Update to 2.8.7:
New features (some are compile-time options):
* add session save/restore feature
o bind ^X to toggle view of page showing session information
o add binding for ^U to previous-document (outside of
o documented command-line options and configuration data
for this feature.
o document -child_relaxed option in Lynx users's guide.
* add -passive-ftp option.
* add -child_relaxed option.
* add "read_timeout" to lynx.cfg, and -read_timeout option to
* add -show_cfg option.
* add LYNX_HELPFILE environment variable to allow override of
location of the help-file
* add NO_PAUSE setting to lynx.cfg, .lynxrc and Options menu
* implement a LONG_LIST equivalent for ftp, configurable as
* add XWINDOWS / NON_XWINDOWS environment-variable field to
DOWNLOAD, etc., in lynx.cfg to specify whether a downloader
(printer, etc) is enabled when the X display variable is set
* configure script improvements
o add --with-mime-libdir option to set MIME_LIBDIR in
o add --with-destdir configure option to set a default
value for the DESTDIR variable in makefiles, and modified
makefiles to ensure that setting DESTDIR in the top-level
makefile propagates to lower levels
o add --enable-local-docs option to link doc-directory
o add --enable-ascii-ctypes option to enable EXP_ASCII_CTYPES
* improve SSL support:
o improve X.509 certificate validation This is tested
for OpenSSL, ifdef'd to not break gnutls. Changes:
+ peer certificate is cached, no need to call
+ support foo.domain:port and [ip.add.re.ss] and
[ip.add.re.ss]:port and [i:p:v:6:ad:dr:es:s] and
+ add support for checking X.509v3 SubjectAltName
extensions (of type DNS - tested - and IP - untested)
when the X.509 commonName check fails.
+ when displaying a list of failed CNs, change
format from foo:bar:baz to
so that we know where what comes from (in "Your
recent statusline messages")
+ if the peer certificate can *NOT* be verified,
output a message to the log as well
+ fix a possible use of an uninitialised value
+ output certificate issuer to the logs as well
(so that you can, before entering your online
banking PIN, see if the certificate has been issued
not only _to_ your bank but also _from_ a place
you trust, in case /etc/ssl/certs/ contains a lot
of Root CA certs)
o add support for the X.509 extension subjectAltName
o log SSL/TLS (HTTPS connection) X.509 certificate issuer
information into the "recent statusline messages"
(accessible via the backspace key)
o add TNS SNI support for the OpenSSL configuration
o modify CF_SSL configure macro to check for -ldl needed
for recent OpenSSL versions
o modify CF_SSL configure macro to build with MSYS for
o extend configure macros CF_SSL and CF_GNUTLS to check
for pkg-config, using that for the default if the
corresponding openssl or gnutls packages are installed.
o add configure --with-nss-compat option, for building
with NSS library's OpenSSL-compatible interface
o add SSL_CERT_FILE to lynx.cfg
o rewrite strcasecomp_asterisk() to support wildcards as
in RFC 2818
o add --enable-gnutls-compat configure option and associated
files to configure with GNU TLS without its gnutls-openssl
library, whose newer versions are available only under
a restrictive license.
o fix src/tidy_tls.c X509_get_issuer_name to actually
take the issuer DN of the present certificate and not
hope that it is the same as taking the subject DN of the
"next" certificate which may or may not exist.
* improve HTML interpretation:
o update Lynx's tables of HTML attributes to cover (except
for events) the keywords from HTML 4.01
o use RFC-822 encoding for filenames passed via file-upload
o provide navigation to script-buttons, to make them more
visible, showing their name
o add "Bad HTML messages" to Options menu, letting the
user disable the warning message, write the detailed
messages to the LYNXMESSAGES: status buffer.
o remove "Bad HTML" warning for buttons outside a form,
since those can be inline, according to the HTML 4 DTD
o correct check for default type of HTML BUTTON, which
is "submit". The code treated this as "button".
o implement "readonly" attribute for TEXTAREA and TEXT
o accommodate (in)compatibility "feature" in HTML5 draft
which replaces ISO-8859-1 with Windows-1252, as indicated
o add support for HTML5 rel=author in link.
o modify SGML_write() to check for UCS-2 BOMs, to provide
support for UCS-2 pages.
o modify SGML_write() to check for UTF-8 BOM, using that
as a hint to set the default document charset to UTF-8.
o parse xml processing-instruction to turn on UTF-8
decoding, as well as disable upper/lower case transforming
in source view.
o parse doctype for xhtml, to tell when empty tags such
as "<textarea />" can be discarded
o translate named entities, etc., for "content" field of
o add switch -xhtml-parsing and lynx.cfg XHTML_PARSING
setting to control whether the extensions for XHTML 1.0
o modify Lynx's DTD information to allow it to display
form-related tags that are inline, even without being in
a form as indicated in
for %inline.forms and %misc.inline.
* improvements to character sets and display:
o improve drawing of menus for multibyte characters by
changing the way the number of fill-characters is computed
o fix some uses of gettext in options menu and info page
where a translated string might contain angle-brackets
o modify popup for externals added in 2.8.4dev.20 to
number the entries if keypad mode is set to one of the
o ie multibyte editing of text-fields.
* improvements to color-style:
o bug-fixes only
* improve interaction with user:
o remove check for -dump option from HTHandleAuthInfo(),
allowing Lynx to -dump or -source NNTP urls
o change the phase during which "-help" option is processed,
to allow it to reflect the configured values of the options
in the help-message
o check if there is piped-in data when starting without
"-" or "-stdin" options, warn about the ignored input
data in that case.
o add ncurses scroll-wheel support, which requires the
extended-mouse configure option of ncurses.
o modify initial active link in download-page to be the
first download action rather than the "help" link whided
in Novice mode.
o make the size of LYNXMESSAGES configurable in lynx.cfg
* improve interaction with other programs:
o discard anchor's post_data field in HTLoadDocument()
if Lynx is about to reload a do. That would happen if
the result of the form includes a link back to the form.
Removing the data causes Lynx to prompt the user, e.g.,
Resubmit POST content to
http://localhost/cgi-bin/lynxtest.pl ? (y/n)
to offer the user the choice between revisiting form
or re-POST'ing the data that was on the form
o pass a newline after the start of PRE-section in
HTGopher.c to force the first newline between records to
be seen and cause the lines to split
o add POSITIONAL_EDITOR setting to configure editors
which accept a "+line" parameter
o modify external editing of TEXTAREA to not do
o modify behavior of "-nonumbers" option for -dump so it
can be combined with -listonly to obtain a list of the
URLs without reference numbers.
o implement "chunked" transfer-encoding to work with
servers that ignore the version number in HTTP get's
o add an Options menu checkbox to tell if Lynx should
send a user-agent string. Unless the useragent restriction
is set, the default for this checkbox is off, so that
Lynx will not send the string. The corresponding setting,
send_useragent, may be saved to ~/.lynxrc, but normally
o change default for configure --enable-ascii-ctypes to
o modify exit code when doing a "-dump" to exit with
error if the server returned an error status for the
* improve cookie support:
o modify cookie-writing to not write if no cookies were
read from the file and none are available.
o adapt/extend parsdate.y from tin to improve parsing of
cookie expiration times.
* improvements to debug/traces:
o change initialization of trace file, handing this during
the first part of argument parsing along with -help and
-version, to show steps done for initialization of
* improvements to scripting/logging:
o bug-fixes only
* other improvements:
o build/install "en" po file so that GNU gettext LANGUAGE
environment variable can find the corresponding English
o if iconv_open() using transliteration fails, retry
without the transliteration feature.
o improve change for UCSetBoxChars() from 2.8.6dev.16
for EXP_CHARTRANS_AUTOSWITCH which assumed that the
line-drawing character set was always different from the
display character set. If both are US_ASCII for example,
ASCII lines would be drawn, which is not good
o modify scanning of floats from lynx.cfg to allow Lynx
to read POSIX values in non-POSIX locales
o replace BROKEN_PROFTPD and BROKEN_WU_FTPD logic with
configurable list of strings in lynx.cfg, i.e.,
BROKEN_FTP_RETR and BROKEN_FTP_EPSV, and add "spftp/" to
the predefined values for the former.
o modify to handle a special case where the content-type
is given as one of the compressed types, to check if the
address (after stripping the file suffix for that
compression) has a suffix that lynx could present For
would display the uncompressed "bar.html" rather than
offering to download the file. This also allows one to
add SUFFIX commands to lynx.cfg to display the
corresponding plain files. For example:
o fix ipv6 literal command-line parsing.
o setup locale before writing version-message.
New/improved sample files:
* add sample scripts for configuring MinGW version using Cygwin.
(it seems to run everywhere, but there are a few possibilities)
Improvements to existing ports:
o add definition for _FILE_OFFSET_BITS in CF_LARGEFILE,
needed for Solaris 64-bit compiles.
o modify UCdomap.c to work with Solaris iconv and handle
+ if "TRANSLIT" feature (an extension of glibc)
does not succeed, retry the call to iconv_open
+ add check for any MIME name beginning "iso8859",
mapping to "iso-8859"
+ recognize "eucjp" MIME name as alias for "euc-jp"
+ recognize "pck" MIME name as alias for "shift_jis"
+ recognize "ansi-1251" MIME name as alias for "windows-1251"
o modify parsdate.y to convert between EBCDIC/ASCII to work on z/OS
o bug-fixes only
Improvements for maintainability and testing:
* modify definitions in LYStructs.h for union to cast to a
void* rather than a long, to help with 64-bit ports
* fix some mismatched BOOL vs BOOLEAN from compiler warnings
due to dev.13 change to LYStructs.h
* change a few options such as --enable-locale-charset option
* free leaks of LYLeaks.c, to make it simpler to check it with
a second tool such as valgrind.
* use off_t rather than long for representing file sizes, e.g.,
when used to print progress messages
* use dtd_util to replace most of HTMLDTD.h and HTMLDTD.c with
source generated from the existing tables in those files
* rename variable defined by CF_PATHSP to PATH_SEPARATOR, use
this consistently to ease use in later autoconf versions
As well as security-related changes:
* modify prompt in LYLoadCGI() from 2.8.6dev.15 to always prompt
user (from FEDORA-2008-9597), and modify compiled-in configuration
default for consistency with other lynx.cfg settings to require
that lynx.cfg be set to permit use of lynxcgi scripts.
* modify logic for reading PERSONAL_EXTENSION_MAP and
PERSONAL_MAILCAP to ensure that they are files that are controlled
only by the user. The default values for these allow lynx to
read configuration information from the user's current directory
at lynx's startup.
* ensure that PERSONAL_EXTENSION_MAP and PERSONAL_MAILCAP are
absolute pathnames, performing tilde expansion as needed.
Pathnames that are not given in absolute form will be sought
under the user's home directory as if they began with "~/".
* ensure that the configured values for GLOBAL_EXTENSION_MAP
and GLOBAL_MAILCAP are absolute pathnames.
* A lot of bug fixes
* A lot of documentation changes.
* A lot of dead code removed
