8. By Emmanuel Thomas-Maurin

* Fix messy update_everything() function and add new
  update_pixmap_from_opened_stream() function, used in tickr_mainc.c
  and tickr_prefwin.c.

* All *string* values are now saved inclosed in a pair of " or '.
  (This avoid getting trailing whitespaces removed by some editors,
  and other weird things like that.) When read, enclosing " or ' are
  removed, so backward compatibility is preserved.

* install-on-win32 script renamed build-on-win32 (for accuracy sake.)

* Fix some confusion about win_transparency in tickr_param.c.
  Actually, double value from 0.1 to 1.0 inside program / int value
  from 1 to 10 inside config file or as command line argument.

* Fix settings import doing nothing (regression bug).

* In show_resource_info(), fix URL link and GTK label.

* Move and set:
    #define N_STR_MAX 8
    #define STR_MAXLEN FILE_NAME_MAXLEN (128 previously)
  and remove duplicates.

* In tickr_feedpicker.c, add:
    if (IS_FLIST(flist_bak))
      ( f_list_free_all(flist_bak); )
  to fix: list crash (f_list_free_all(): Invalid node in list) after
  adding a feed to an empty list (when clicking OK).

* Rename (#define RESOURCE_DUMP) APP_CMD"-resrc-dump" ->
  APP_CMD"-resrc-dump.xml" (because it *is* an XML file.)

* Little changes in big_error() text.

7. By Emmanuel Thomas-Maurin

* Non standard feed rank support in OPML file.

* Add new optional 'feed re-ordering by user' feature.

* Add in libetm-0.4.4/str_mem.c/h: (int) str_is_num(const char *) and
  (int) str_is_blank(const char *).

* In feed picker win, 'enter' in (rank_/url_)entry launches 'add/upd'
  (GTK_RESPONSE_ADD) instead of 'ok (single)' (GTK_RESPONSE_SINGLE).

* Question at program start-up about new feed list format conversion:
  if version = 0.6.2 and feed list exists and feed list backup doesn't
  exist, create backup and convert to new format.

* In tickr_feedpicker.c: fix 'cancel' action.

* New func FList *f_list_clone(FList *) in tickr_list/c/h.


* In compute_surface_and_win(), remove:
    if (prm->icon_in_taskbar == 'n')
  from update_win_dims() (why was it there?) to fix 'tickr keeps
  stealing focus' bug. Also replace params_have_been_changed() with
  win_params_have_been_changed(). (LP: #900759, #951452, #1017107)

* Fix (regression bug) segfault which occurs when opening text file
  and attempting to 'format_resource()' 'not-generated-if-resource-is-
  file' XML_DUMP_EXTRA file.

* Libetm version 0.4.3 -> 0.4.4 (see below.)

* Add get_appdata-dir_w() in libetm-0.4.4:win32_specific.c and
  get_appdata_dir_utf8() in tickr_resource.c to fix non-ascii (for
  instance cyrillic) user name in app data dir issue on win32.
  Also remove seemingly useless g_win32_locale_filename_from_utf8()
  stuff on win32.

* If 'item title' and 'item description' both unchecked in pref win,
  warn about 'pointless' setup and ask for confirmation before saving

* Add new TickerEnv member (int) mouse_x_in_drwa used to continuously
  tracks (guess what?) mouse x position. Now we have:
  - tooltips with descriptions when ticker displays only titles
  - tooltips with titles when ticker displays only descriptions.

* Add fp_extra stuff in tickr_feedparser.c to get item titles /
  descriptions (in tooltips and others) when they are no displayed.

* Remove tmp files when exiting tickr_resource.c:format_resource().

* Add env->c_surf test in shift2left_callback(). (LP: #1011316)

6. By Emmanuel Thomas-Maurin

* Add: 'quick setup' thing (in tickr_quicksetup.c) which is launched
  at program startup if config file doesn't exist.

* Little improvements in layout of 'feed picker win' and 'preferences

* Fix a segfault that happens when trying to export params and no
  config file exists yet.

* Make several windows that should not be resized by user, unresizable.

* Fix Launchpad bug #1007346: When 'window always-on-top' is disabled,
  'visible on all user desktops' stops working.

* If mouse wheel scrolling applies to speed (or feed), then Ctrl +
  mouse wheel scrolling applies to feed (or speed.)

* No real code changes in libetm, only in comments, so no need for a
  new version number.

* Update tickr_helptext.c and tickr.1 (man page.)

* Add new cli option 'no-ui' (similar to 'instance-id') used by new
  IF_UI_ALLOWED macro and remove all #if USE_GUI occurences.

* In tickr_list.c, free listfname before using it. Fixed by swapping 2
    warning(FALSE, 4, "Can't save URL list ", listfname, ...);

* Use/add #define
  to replace a few 'magic' numeric values.

* Rename: rss_title/description(_delimiter) ->
  then add new param: feed_title(_delimiter). Now we have:
  feed title / item title / item description.

* Use table in resource properties window.

* Fix a bug in f_list_load_from_file() in tickr_list.c which
  uncorrectly retrieves any feed title string containing TITLE_TAG_CHAR
  when TITLE_TAG_CHAR has not been removed from string first, for
  instance: 'NYT > World' -> ' World'.

* New param: disable left-click.

* Add 'check for updates' feature.

* Launch 'import OPML file' if feed list doesn't exist.

* Remove code changing get_params()->disable_popups value in
  macros which prevents this setting to be saved and add
  new macros. Which ones to use depends on context.

* Move:
    #ifdef G_OS_WIN32
    extern FILE *stdout_fp, *stderr_fp;
  from *.c into tickr.h.

* Default always-on-top setting changed to 'n' (so that tickr is not
  intrusive by default.)

5. By Emmanuel Thomas-Maurin

* Complete quick_feed_picker() stuff in tickr_quickfeedpicker.c.

* Swap win32 log files every hour to prevent generating huge ones.
  Finally fix an old bug on win32.

* Several little improvements/fixes in tickr_feedpicker.c.

* New type FList (feed doubly-linked list) and associated functions
  f_list_*() in tickr_list.c. Will replace confusing: char url_array[] /
  char *p_url[] / char **p_url stuff in: tickr_main.c, tickr_feedpicker.c,
  tickr_opml.c and tickr_resource.c.

* Renaming 2 src files:
  - tickr_rss.c -> tickr_feedparser.c
  - tickr_rsswin.c -> tickr_feedpicker.c

* Add new func: win_with_progress_bar() (in tickr_otherwins.c) and use
  it in feed list import thing (in tickr_opml.c) instead of
  not-spinning-as-expected win_with_spinner().

* When opening the feed picker dialog, highlight and scroll to current
  feed, plus several extra fixes and tweaks (in tickr_rsswin.c.)

* Add new func: highlight_and_go_to_row() (in tickr_quickfeedpicker.c.)

* Add new func: get_feed_index_in_selection() (in tickr_resource.c.)

* Add new module and func: tickr_quickfeedpicker.c: quick_feed_picker().

* Add new func: question_win_at().

* Move 'Import/Export Preferences' from 'File' to 'Edit' in menu layout.

* Check/improve tickr_socket.c code and move typedefs, prototypes,
  error codes, ... for tickr_socket.c into tickr_socket.h for
  modularity sake.

* Pause tickr (on mouse-over AND) when popup menu is opened.

* Change big_error() function (and prototype in libetm-0-4.3) to
  handle variable number of args / change warning() the same way.

* Add new func: try_str_to_utf8() in tickr_rss.c
  -> try to fix string when utf-8 validation fails.

* Add new func: remove_trailing_whitespaces_from_str(char *) in


* Change main window title:
  'app name and version num | feed title / file name'
  'feed title / file name | app name and version num'

* In libetm-0.4.3:
  - Compile with win32_specific.c only on win32 (fix empty unit
  - get_libetm_version() (function name modified.)

* Fix a typo in debian/control Build-Depends:
  'debhelper (>= 7.O.50~)' instead of 'debhelper (>= 7.0.50~)'
  which only shows up when trying to build for Lucid.

* Split tickr_http.c into tickr_http.c and tickr_socket.c.

* libetm-0.4.2 -> libetm-0.4.3:
  Replace KB, MB, GB, TB with KiB, MiB, GiB, TiB.

4. By Emmanuel Thomas-Maurin

* Implement new parameter: <mouse wheel scrolling apply to:
* s = ticker-speed / f = feed-in-list / n = none>.

* Set <ticker pause on mouse-over> as optional.

* Select/highlight and scroll to added URL in the list window.

* Split compute_surface_and_win() code into compute_surface and
  compute_win, because the later is not always necessary. When
  window-always-on-top is disabled, compute_win needs to be run only
  twice at program startup (ie once after gtk_widget_show_all() has been
  called), then whenever params are changed, but not every time a new
  feed is loaded.

* Add preferences (settings) importing/exporting feature.

* 'file' scheme support added in tickr_http.c -> enables reading *and*
  xml-processing of (local) text files (wheras 'open text file' *only*
  read them.)

* 'HTTPS not supported' handling/warning added in tickr_http.c (fix bug:
  program freezes whith HTTP redirects to HTTPS.)

* xml 'quick check' in tickr_http.c:format_quick_check() don't reject
  anymore valid (?) feeds not starting with '<?xml' (like google news.)

* A few little changes in libetm-0.4 -> libetm-0.4.2.

* Use mouse wheel to go to previous/next feed.

* Hide passwords in connection settings window.

* Pause ticker and show feed title in tooltip on mouse-over.

* Renaming all source files: news_*.c/h -> tickr_*/c/h.

3. By Emmanuel Thomas-Maurin

* Fix sort_url_list(EMPTY_LIST) falsly returning one element list
  (in news_list.c.) Now, program doesn't hang anymore if lauched with
  no feed URLs selected.

* Add in news_main.c: shift2left_callback():
  env->suspend_rq = TRUE / (cairo drawing code) / env->suspend_rq = FALSE

* Tickr fails to build with ld --as-needed (recently-set-as-default
  linker flag) because libraries must be placed after objects needing
  theirs symbols.
  To fix that, we use autoconf macro PKG_CHECK_MODULES(GTK2, gtk+-2.0, ,)
  and PKG_CHECK_MODULES(XML2, libxml-2.0, ,) in configure.ac, and we
  may so remove `pkg-config --libs GTK+-2.0' and `xml-config --libs' from
  (Closes: #647311 LP: #879880)
