* Wed Jun 09 2021 Pedro Monreal <>
- Build with support for MENUS, PANELS and FORMS
- Fix perl script interpreters
Version: 1.32-bp150.2.4
* Fri Feb 06 2015
- updated to 1.32
  Makefile.PL: if /usr/include/ncurses/ncurses.h exists, use Ncurses regardless
  of what the $guess_cfg table says for the OS at hand.  This fixes the former
  hybrid approach which didn't work for a Solaris 11 system that has both
  Ncurses and BSD curses.
  Typographical error in documentation fixed.
  New in 1.31 (Released April 26, 2014)
  Fix compile failure with some Curses libraries, introduced in
  1.29 - undefined KEY_CODE_YES.
  Fix documentation: wide character functions exist back to Perl 5.6,
  not 5.16.
  New in 1.30 (Released April 19, 2014)
  Fix build failure: Use older substitutes if Perl is too old to have
  the 'utf8_to_uvchr_buf' function they use; don't include the wide character
  functions if Perl is even too old to have the substitutes.  Broken in 1.29.
  Fix "constant not provided by your vendor" message when you refer to a
  function that does not exist in the Curses module.
  Minor fixes to documentation of new wide character functions.
  Fix warning about extra argument to c_setmevent .
  Fix documentation for "not defined in your Curses library" errors.
  (broken in 1.28).
  Fix demo programs' recognition of "not defined in your Curses library"
  errors (broken in 1.28).
  New in 1.29 (Released April 6, 2014)
  Add an alternate set of functions (getchar, ungetchar, getstring,
  instring, addstring, insstring) providing a more Perl-like interface,
  converting from and to Perl strings (instead of passing data to the C
  library verbatim) and using wide character functions if available in the
  underlying curses library.

* Tue Nov 30 2010
- switch to perl_requires macro
* Mon Nov 29 2010
- remove /var/adm/perl-modules
* Tue Oct 19 2010
- add perl as explicit buildrequire
* Tue Feb 09 2010
- update to 1.28
  * Disable Curses::Var::STORE.  It doesn't work (doesn't even compile) with
    newer Ncurses (due to updates to make Ncurses reentrant).  One can
    re-enable it by defining ALLOW_VARS_STORE in c-config.h.
  * Improve "not provided by your vendor" message.
* Sun Jan 10 2010
- enable parallel build
* Mon Feb 23 2009
- update to 1.27
  * Extraneous .i and .s files in 1.26 removed.  'make clean' cleans
  all .i and .s too.
  * 'gen' directory is replaced by gen.tar file, so CPAN doesn't
    index the stuff in there.  That directory is stuff for developing
    the Curses package, not stuff for users.
  * newterm() is available and putwin() and getwin() work in newer
  Perl (with PerlIO). We now use PerlIO_findFile().
