   43  - Fix bug 854215 (-v and --version still needed to connect to X server)
   44 
   45 Changes since xosview-1.8.1
   46  - Applied sourceforge patch 927112 from Russell Reed which fixes
   47    the swapmeter when USESYSCALLS is defined.
   48 
   49  - Applied sourceforge patch 959433 which adds acpi support to
   50    the linux battery meter.
   51 
   52  - Applied a patch similar to the sourceforge patch 586184 submitted
   53    by Mark Guertin.
   54 
   55  - Linux diskmeter now uses vmstat and thus works with 2.6.
   56    But the units problem (block size) probably still remains.
   57 
   58  - Linux pagemeter should now work with 2.6 kernels
   59 
   60  - Merge in the fedora-2 nfs patch.
   61 
   62  - Merge in the fedora-2 strip patch.
   63 
   64  - Merge in the fedora-2 proc patch.
   65 
   66  - Merge in the fedora-2 s390 patch.
   67 
   68  - Merge in the fedora-2 non-i386 patch.
   69 
   70  - Merge in the fedora-2 linux-2.6 kernel (related) patch.
   71 
   72  - Add an autogen.sh script.  This script runs autoconf to create
   73    the configure script.
   74 
   75 Changes since xosview-1.8.0
   76 
   77 - Update linux port to build with gcc 3.2 and 3.3 (should still work
   78   with 2.95.
   79 
   80 - Add -Wno-deprecated for gcc builds.  This avoids warnings about
   81   the new C++ header files.  This should be fixed for the next release.
   82 
   83 - Change MAX_PROC_LENGTH in linux/cpumeter to 4096 to avoid
   84   an infinite loop with redhat 7.3
   85 
   86 Changes since xosview-1.7.3
   87 
   88 - Add Mike Butler's patch which fixes an infinite loop in
   89   the linux netmeter when a pcmcia card is ejected.
   90 
   91 - Add Leopold Toetsch's linux lmstemp meter.
   92 
   93 - Linux port (and maybe others) now works with gcc-3.0.4
   94 
   95 - added IRIX 6.5 support
   96 
   97 - Updated NetBSD support, based on patches from Bernd Ernesti, to
   98   use new CPU meter sysctl interface.
   99 
  100 Changes since xosview-1.7.2
  101 
  102 - IRQ rate meter for BSDs added.
  103 
  104 - FreeBSD 4.* fixes by David O'Brien
  105 
  106 Changes since xosview-1.7.1
  107 
  108 - Linux now has a RAID meter.  See README.linux for how to set it up.
  109 
  110   BSDI support, courtesy of Tomer Klainer.
  111   Fixed memstat module for linux-2.2
  112 
  113   Changes from Thomas Waldmann (ThomasWaldmann@gmx.de)
  114 - Fixed cosmetical bug in xosview:
  115   if you tried to make the xosview window height too small, it looked quite
  116   strange (because the height value for the meters got negative)
  117 
  118 - Fixed cosmetical bug in disk meter:
  119   at first call, it displayed negative values, overwriting the "DISK" label
  120 
  121 - Cosmetical fix:
  122   The titles were at x=0 - directly at the window border.
  123   Fixed it to show 1 pixel background between window border and title texts.
  124   Also moved "used" displays 2 pixels to the right, so that there is also 1
  125   pixel between the titles and the used display texts.
  126 
  127 - Cosmetical fix: Xdefaults and Xdefaults.stipple file now looks nicer.
  128 
  129 - Cosmetical fix: load meter sometimes went beyond the right border (I think
  130   when showing values >>20). Changed load meter scaling to be really dynamic
  131   (no upper bound for total, but total doesn't become less than 1.0).
  132   Changed "used" display to show load relative to 1.0 (so it now just shows
  133   the load value ;-).
  134 
  135 - New feature: load meter now has not only a warning color (and threshold),
  136   but also a (higher) critical color (and threshold).
  137 
  138 - Added info to disk meter problem documentation (see source):
  139   on my system, it showed only the half of the correct values, factor
  140   for SW-RAID5 md devices seems to be 2048 (md0), while standard ext2fs
  141   factor is 1024 on my system, too (hda).
  142 
  143   So there is a problem. Solution ???
  144 
  145 - Fixed bitmeter to calculate graphics coordinates like fieldmeter
  146 
  147 - MemMeter showed strange values when starting vmware (and having memstat
  148   module loaded): "used" memory got negative !! Looking at the values, I had
  149   the impression that "shared" memory is also counted as cache memory.
  150   I hopefully fixed that by subtracting shared from cache - looks better now.
  151 
  152 Changes since xosview-1.7.0
  153   Optimised scrolling graph to use XCopyArea.
  154   Fixes to linux diskmeter.
  155   Fixed all (I hope) linux code which parsed /proc/stat with too
  156     small a buffer.
  157 
  158 Changes since xosview-1.6.2
  159   Added a linux diskmeter which *should* be similar to the BSD version
  160     but which also differentiates between reading and writing. Linux
  161     looks like it actually has more stats (per disk input/output) so
  162     this could be expanded upon.
  163   Better *BSD support:  OpenBSD intmeter, FreeBSD diskmeter,
  164     NetBSD battery meter.
  165   Some Solaris support.
  166 
  167 Changes since xosview-1.6.1
  168   Check for and set -D__SMP__ if the linux memstat module is built on a
  169     SMP system.
  170   New option to omit the meter captions (+-captions) added by
  171     Christian 'Dr. Disk' Hechelmann <drdisk@tc-gruppe.de>
  172   New graphing meter display mode added.
  173   Fixes to work with linux/alpha.
  174   BSD directories merged -- now a single bsd subdir shared by
  175     NetBSD, FreeBSD, and OpenBSD.
  176 
  177 Changes since xosview-1.6.0:
  178   Linux netmeter for kernels 1.1 and above no longer hangs after
  179     the packet count gets too high.
  180   Interrupt meter now supports priority settings under *BSD and Linux.
  181   Better UVM detection for *BSD.
  182   Code cleanup/removal of unneeded #include's for *BSD.
  183 
  184 Changes since xosview-1.5.1, in no particular order:
  185 
  186   Linux netmeter does not need IPACCOUNTING for 1.1 kernels.
  187 
  188   Much better support for FreeBSD, thanks to Tom Pavel!
  189 
  190   Check for invalid meter priority of 0 added.
  191 
  192   NetBSD now supports the interrupt meter.
  193 
  194   Finally found the missing 'else' that was causing the net meter
  195     in particular to occasionally overwrite the label.
  196 
  197   Found 32-bit-wrap case that was also causing the netmeter grief.
  198 
  199   Bitmeter class drawing routine tweaked, usedLabel color changed
  200     to be the same as the `on' color for the bits.
  201 
  202 Changes since xosview-1.5.0, in no particular order:
  203 
  204   On Linux the cpu meters will now show a seperate meter per cpu if
  205     Jerome Forissier's kernel patch has been applied.
  206 
  207   Linux should now work out of the box with GNU libc (untested).
  208 
  209   The autoscale labels now work under Linux and HPUX.
  210 
  211   Early support for FreeBSD:  load, cpu, mem, and page meters.
  212 
  213   Now compiles with either BSD or GNU make (BSD make can not handle
  214     auto-depend with the current Makefile structure).
  215 
  216   Man page source code now uses lots of macros to make modifications easier.
  217 
  218 Changes since xosview-1.4.*, in no particular order:
  219 
  220 Linux memory and swap meters now will work with linux 2.0 or 2.1
  221   They will no longer work for pre 2.0 kernels.
  222 
  223 All meters can now be disabled individually.
  224 
  225 The overloaded 'network' resource has been deprecated, and replaced by
  226   'net' to enable/disable the NetMeter, and 'netBandwidth', which sets the
  227   initial maximum value for the meter.
  228 
  229 Initial support for stipple masks has been added, primarily for users
  230   stuck with 1-bit monitors/display cards.  Try setting enableStipple
  231   true.  Please give us feedback on this, if you use it.  It needs
  232   some more work.
  233 
  234 Initial support for the -name option for specifying an X resource
  235   `instance name' other than the default of `xosview'.  With the
  236   following .Xdefaults file:
  237     xosview*background:  blue
  238     xosviewFoo*background: black
  239   the command 'xosview' will have a blue background, and the command
  240   'xosview -name xosviewFoo' will have a black background, but all
  241   other resources will be from the default xosview resources.
  242 
  243 New meters:
  244   PageMeter for Linux
  245   BatteryMeter for Linux
  246   DiskMeter for NetBSD
  247 
  248 Improved drawing.
  249 
  250 Improved usedLabels -- now the autoscale format can be used to
  251   automatically print a value in K, M, or G, as appropriate.  (Before,
  252   most displays showed percent use, instead of absolute values.)
