Release 1.7.0

Version 1.7.0 includes a new API, hence the change from the 1.6 series to 1.7:

  • XSetIOErrorExitHandler which provides a mechanism for applications to recover from I/O error conditions instead of being forced to exit.

This release includes a bunch of bug fixes, some which have been pending for over three years:

  • A bunch of nls cleanups to remove obsolete entries and clean up formatting of the list.
  • Warning fixes and other cleanups across a huge swath of the library.
  • Memory allocation bugs, including leaks and use after free in the locale code.
  • Thread safety fixes in the locale code.
  • poll_for_response race condition fix.

Version 1.7.0 includes a couple of new locales:

  • ia and ie locales.

There are also numerous compose entries added, including:

  • |^ or ^| for ↑, |v or v| for ↓, ~~ for ≈.
  • Allowing use of 'v' for caron, in addition to 'c', so things like vC for Č, vc for č.
  • Compose sequences LT, lt for '<', and GT, gt for '>' for keyboards where those are difficult to access.
