rxvt-unicode (6.2-0ubuntu1) dapper; urgency=low

  * New upstream release:
    - Attempt to use sched_yield() for vast improvement in terminal
      data transfer efficiency.
    - Fix callback.h (using gvpe's version) to correctly return the
      callback result (affects new -pty-fd semantics in urxvtc on a few
    - Move ISO14755 character feedback box if it obscures the mouse
      cursor position.
    - Include one trailing space in rectangular selections to indicate
      the inserted newline for aesthetics.
    - Implement intensityStyles option to enable/disable bold/blink
      selecting high intensity foreground/background colours.
  * Version 6.1:
    - Update ISO8859-7 (Euro and Drachma round-trip, etc.) table.
    - Fix a crash when the selection scrolls beyond the scrollback

    - Fix drawing of selections that are partially scrolled out of the
    - Properly initialise lines that are newly scrolled in (led to
      extremely long lines and crashes).

      stripping whitespace, and use it on rectangular selections.
  * Version 6.0:
    - Enable slow link support by default.
    - Fix relative cursor positioning to properly respect scrolling
      regions (also a bug in original rxvt).
    - Zero out initial termios struct if fetching it fails.
    - Pass the urxvtc fd to urxvtd if -pty-fd is used.
    - Don't link against -l{nsl,socket,xpg4} unless necessary.
    - Don't buffer partial screen scrolls in the backscroll.
    - Rewrite internal buffer handling:
      + Reflow when resizing lines, and wrap them instead of winging.
      + Use a circular line buffer (substantial scrolling speedup).
      + Reduce code size, data memory usage; improve code clarity.
  * Version 5.9:
    - Fix a bug in the menu code.
    - Make signal handling global instead of per-terminal.
    - Don't crash when broken Xft/Fontconfig/Freetype versions return
      bogus data; ignore the Xft font instead.
