New minor version
Very lentghy release notes in the NEWS file, whose beginning is:
These notes are for ncurses 6.2, released February 12, 2020.
This release is designed to be source-compatible with ncurses 5.0
through 6.1; providing extensions to the application binary interface
(ABI). Although the source can still be configured to support the
ncurses 5 ABI, the reason for the release is to reflect improvements
to the ncurses 6 ABI and the supporting utility programs.
There are, of course, numerous other improvements, listed in this
The most important bug-fixes/improvements dealt with user-defined
capabilities in terminal descriptions. The release notes also mention
some other bug-fixes, but are focused on new features and improvements
to existing features since ncurses 6.1 release.
Also note that this is needed for the latest version of xterm (version 353) in BLFS.
Fixed at revision 11748.
