Release Notes: xclip-copyfile is now compatible with recent tar versions. UTF-8 text is now supported.
Release Notes: This is the first release after moving to Sourceforge. The performance has been greatly enhanced, especially over slow networks. Two helper scripts, xclip-copyfile and xclip-pastefile, have been added. Taken together, xclip can now be used as an alternative to sftp/scp, thus avoiding password prompt when X11 forwarding has already been setup. Autoconf is now used instead of Imake. The maintainer and Web site address have been updated. All Debian patches have been applied.
Release Notes: Removal of all event loops from xclib fuctions to allow xclib to be integrated into general-purpose event loops of other software more easily.
Release Notes: Portability and stability enhancements added. The man page now has a more conventional format and better content.
Release Notes: Support for the INCR mechanism (-o should be able to print out selections that were previously too big and would have resulted in a message "Error: Support for format not yet implemented."). In in mode, using the INCR mechanism means that you can use xclip on really big data. It used to work OK on big data, but it is better behaved about it.
Release Notes: A new -selection option to allow access to XA_SECONDARY and XA_CLIPBOARD, adding -Wall to C compiler options in Imakefile, fixes for some warnings, and an updated man page.
Release Notes: The use of getop_long() has been changed to XrmParseCommand(), a function in xlib, for portability (apparently System V Unix derived machines don't have getopt_long(), but XrmParseCommand() is part of xlib, and hence should always be available). XrmParseCommand ignores ambiguous options (-ver gets ignored, instead of going to -verbose or -version), and doesn't do multiple options with one hyphen (-if instead of -i -f). The -out (out mode) and -filter (print stdin back to stdout) options have been added.
Release Notes: Use of getopt_long_only has changed to getopt_long, which should work better with non-GNU platforms. A segfault that occurred when given a non-existant file to read was fixed. An Imakefile was made for use with xmkmf; this means that xclip should build and install fairly nicely on any system with an X Consortium-derived X server (nearly all Unix-style X servers, probably). A decent man page has been written.
Release Notes: The ability to read input from files as well as stdin has been added, and it can now fork into the background while waiting for selection requests.
