Wording of 5.4 release notes
I submitted "Improves support for", and it was changed to "adds". Not quite the same thing.

Re: RedHat 6.2
RedHat distributed development versions of ncurses past 4.2 as ncurses 4.2 without noting that interfaces and data structures had changed.
On release of ncurses 5.0, they decided to ignore the change in ABI since they thought (a mistake) that their development versions were the same as 5.0.
Actually, about a month before Redhat 6.2 was released, I discussed this issue with them, so they "should" know.

RedHat 6.2
Ok, could someone explain to me why the heck RedHat 6.2 has a package called ncurses-5.0 that install only libncurses.so.4? Isn't that confusing? libncurses.so.5 must exist somewhere, since some programs require it!!
