Release Notes: Some copyrighted code for OS-9 support was removed. If you have less-381, there is no need to upgrade to less-382.
Release Notes: This release includes a new -L option to disable LESSOPEN processing, and further support for large (64 bit) file addressing. Large file support is now set up by the configure script. autoconf 2.54 is now used. configure.in, acconfig.h, and defines.h.top were replaced with configure.ac. Overstriking underscore with underscore is now bold or underlined depending on context. 7 spaces is now used for line numbers in -N mode, if possible. Some bugs in handling overstriking in UTF-8 files have been fixed, along with some nroff issues in the man page.
Release Notes: The default buffer space is now 64K as documented. Search highlighting works properly when used with -R. Some compiler warnings were cleaned up.
Release Notes: A new -x option to specify multiple variable-width tab stops, -X option no longer disables keypad initialization, new commands t and T step through multiple tag matches, support for "global(1)" tags, a new prompt style, and several other bugfixes.
Release Notes: New -J (--status-column) and -# (--shift) options, default horizontal shift distance is now one-half screen width, horizontal shifting does not shift line numbers if -N is in effect, and horizontal shifting acts as though -S were set, to avoid confusion.
Release Notes: The -w flag now highlights the first new line after a forward-screen movement instead of suppressing tildes after end-of-file, a new -W flag highlights the first new line after any forward movement, window resize works even if LINES and/or COLUMNS environment variables are incorrect, new percent escape characters have been added for prompt strings, new charset name "iso8859" is equivalent to "latin1", new charset name "ebcdic" supports EBCDIC character sets and fixed some bugs causing incorrect display on DOS/Windows.
