  •  12 Nov 2007 03:50

Release Notes: rlwrap can now handle ANSI color and multibyte characters. An option to colorise prompts has been added. A number of minor bugs and portability problems have been corrected.

  •  20 Nov 2006 14:02

Release Notes: This release handles redirection. Termcap weirdness on Fedora Core 6 has been fixed. New options have been added for weeding out duplicate history entries and adding of formatted comments to history items.

  •  15 Aug 2006 08:48

Release Notes: Signal handling has been improved so that if a client command dies by way of an unhandled signal, rlwrap will now kill itself with the same signal. Rlwrap can now be started with a previously given input buffer. A minor mistake with the FreeBSD installation has been fixed, and libutil will now be used, if available.

  •  19 Oct 2005 08:16

Release Notes: An option has been added to make multi-line input possible by invoking an external editor. Completion can now be case-insensitive. A problem with messed-up output with the -r option has been fixed.

  •  09 Aug 2005 05:21

Release Notes: Completion word lists are now kept in red-black trees, dramatically speeding up startup with large completion lists. rlwrap copies terminal settings from the client, so wrapping programs that manipulate their terminal (like emacs and vim) should be transparent.

  •  25 Jun 2005 13:35

Release Notes: A key binding to enter a line while keeping it out of the history list was added.

  •  20 Feb 2005 16:05

Release Notes: Several small bugfixes and new features. The history file can be specified, and history files can be read-only. Multiple completion word lists can again be used.

  •  20 Aug 2003 03:41

Release Notes: This release should be much more portable than previous versions, due to the use of automake and new pty-handling code.

  •  02 Jan 2003 04:46

Release Notes: A few bugfixes and new features were added, rlwrap now tries to find clients working directory when completing filenames, and a history search (with ctrl-r) now works properly.

  •  21 Jun 2002 10:14

Release Notes: rlwrap now displays an asterisk for every input character whenever the client has ECHO turned off (e.g. when entering a password). There is better handling of very wide prompts (or very narrow terminals). A test client has been added, which has uncovered a few embarrassing bugs and portability problems (all fixed).
