x-wvdial is an X11-based frontend for wvdial, a simple dialer for Linux. No extra libraries are required. It supports both PPP and ISDN. It can also sync your clock to network time, ping your host, fetch your mail, and run slrnpull for downloading news articles right after connecting.
Release Notes: More native language support (Dutch, German, Spanish, and US-English), a new version scheme (odd releases denote developers releases while even number releases are for public consumption), use of a personal config file (~/.x-wvdialrc), and small fixes and better error handling.
Release Notes: Support for I18n (current languages include US-English and German), and minor tweaks and corrections.
Release Notes: x-wvdial now uses 'hwclock' instead of 'clock' because of a nasty bug where some older verions of the GNU 'clock' command failed to write the system time to CMOS if the hardware clock was using UTC. It also now searches for 'rdate' if 'netdate' cannot be found.
Release Notes: Fixes for failure to properly shutdown wvdial and spawning a subshell while trying to query the users NNTP server.
Release Notes: First release under the name x-wvdial. Several tweaks, optimized for wvdial, and exhaustive error handling.
