ELinks 0.12pre5
===============

This is the fifth 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 0.12pre4
------------------------------------------

Fixed crashes:

* critical bug 1081: To fix crashes caused by different definitions of
  regfree() in TRE and in the system libc, link with TRE before any
  other libraries.  (ELinks 0.12pre4 was the first release that had
  this bug.)
* Debian bug 534835: Check the return values of some SpiderMonkey
  functions, to avoid crashes if out of memory.

Everything else:

* Searching for more than one fullwidth (e.g. Japanese) character now
  works.
* bug 1080: Support ``--dump-color-mode'' with ``--dump-charset UTF-8''.
  (Neither of those worked before ELinks 0.12pre1.)
* minor bug 1017: To work around HTTP server bugs, disable
  protocol.http.compression by default, until ELinks can report
  decompression errors or automatically retry the connection.
* enhancement: The French translation was updated.
