Hash: SHA1

The xfd application displays all the characters in a font using either
the X11 core protocol or libXft2.

This release adds internationalization support (though with no translations
contributed yet), drops Xaw8 support, and accumulates a number of years worth
of build configuration improvements and janitorial cleanups.

Alan Coopersmith (10):
      Update man page to better reflect Xft support
      Add README with pointers to mailing lists, bugzilla, & git
      Bump xorg-macros requirement to 1.4 for XORG_INSTALL changes
      Fill in COPYING with notices from source code & man page
      Integrate gettext support with autotools build system
      Clean up CFLAGS/LIB settings in configure.ac & Makefile.am
      Use AM_V_GEN to silence manpage generation too
      config: upgrade to util-macros 1.8 for additional man page support
      config: Remove unnecessary calls from configure.ac
      xfd 1.1.0

Gaetan Nadon (9):
      .gitignore: use common defaults with custom section # 24239
      Makefile.am: ChangeLog not required: EXTRA_DIST or *CLEANFILES #24432
      Deploy the new XORG_DEFAULT_OPTIONS #24242
      INSTALL, NEWS, README or AUTHORS files are missing/incorrect #24206
      Makefile.am: add ChangeLog and INSTALL on MAINTAINERCLEANFILES
      configure.ac: use backticks rather than $() for cmd subs
      config: update and relocate AX_DEFINE_DIR macro
      config: ignore xfd.po file when gettext is used
      config: update AC_PREREQ statement to 2.60

James Cloos (4):
      Rename .cvsignore to .gitignore
      Add *~ to .gitignore to skip patch/emacs droppings
      Replace static ChangeLog with dist-hook to generate from git log
      xaw8 is gone, use xaw7

Jay Hobson (1):
      Internationalize xfd: Call gettext on strings printed to stderr

Jeremy Huddleston (2):
      Build fix for file systems that are not case sensitive
      Added missing AM_PROG_CC_C_O

Matthieu Herrb (1):
      Let xfd build on systems without gettext.

Paulo Cesar Pereira de Andrade (1):
      Correct make distcheck and sparse warnings.

Peter Breitenlohner (1):
      enable VPATH build, reorganize app default files
