A new major version of vty exists: http://members.cox.net/stefanor/vty/dist/vty-2.0.tar.gz darcs get --tag=rel-2.0 http://members.cox.net/stefanor/vty Differences from 1.0: * vty now uses a record type for attributes, instead of bitfields in an Int. This is the reason for increasing the major version. * vty now supports setting background colors. * You can now explicitly specify 'default' colors (blending in with the terminal configuration). * vty now supports five ANSI boolean attributes: reverse-video, bold, underline, half-bright, and blinking. (1.0 only supported bold.) * vty now supports Unicode characters on output, automatically setting and resetting UTF-8 mode (beware double width and combining characters!) * vty now disables ISIG and IXOFF, allowing C-q, C-s, C-c, C-z, and C-\ to be received as input. * vty now properly handles cleanup, leaving the cursor at the bottom of the screen and erasing the last line.
