ELinks 0.12pre4
===============

This is the fourth prerelease for ELinks 0.12.

This release of ELinks is mostly licensed under version 2 of the GNU
General Public License.  More permissive licences apply to some parts
of it, and there is also one test file under the GNU Free Documentation
License; please see COPYING for the list.

User-visible changes since ELinks 0.12pre3
------------------------------------------

Incompatibilities:

* build: You can no longer specify the location of GNUTLS using
  ``configure --with-gnutls=DIR''.

Fixed crashes:

* critical bug 1077: Fix crash opening a ``javascript:'' link in a new
  tab.  (Also fixed in ELinks 0.11.6.GIT.)
* critical bug 1071: Fix crash in get_dom_node_child.  (ELinks
  0.12pre1 was the first release that had this bug.)

Build system:

* Debian build bug 526349: Include asciidoc.py from AsciiDoc 7.1.2,
  to remove all dependencies on the installed version.
* Debian build bug 529821: Use ``pkg-config gnutls'' instead of
  ``libgnutls-config'', which is not included in GNUTLS 2.7.x.
* build enhancement: Recognize ``configure --without-tre''.

Everything else:

* Debian bug 528661: If using GNUTLS 2.1.7 or later, disable various
  TLS extensions (including CERT and SERVERNAME) to help handshaking
  with the SSLv3-only bugzilla.novell.com.
* bug 765: Opening a new tab no longer asks about the document of the
  previous tab.  (ELinks 0.12pre1 was the first release that had this
  bug.)

Known regressions
-----------------

ELinks 0.12pre4 has the following bug that was not in 0.11.6.
This should be fixed before the 0.12.0 release:

* Bug 943 - Crash: BFU points to a freed struct type_query

There is also one other bug scheduled for 0.12.0:

* Bug 771 - Infinite loop is not well handled

This list is now a bit shorter than in the 0.12pre3 announcement.  :-)
