* Let's call it 1.0, folks! * This leaves the following big things for later: - a better confmodule interface that doesn't eat stdin/out - container template types - select list with explainations - a textual replacement for the dialog frontend that is just as easy to use, and sucks less - better developer's documentation - regression tests - everything else in the TODO file * I mention a dialog frontend replacement that does not suck. The slang frontend was intended to be just that, but it is a failure, with big problems like unscrollable extended descriptions, UI clunkiness, etc. Nobody wants to fix these issues, and so the best thing to do is remove it, before a lot of people begin to use it. Closes: #66170, #81344, #96302, #74722, #77085, #101643 * Removing the slang frontend also involved: - getting rid of debconf/helpvisible, which was only used by it - modifiying the debconf/frontend's template description, thus making all the translatione be out of date again, right as I release 1.0. Bleh. I was able to clean up the french template, but all the other translations of that template were too out of date to live, so I removed it from them. I am accepting updated translations, and I would love to get a 1.1 release out with fully up-to-date translations of everything. - doc updates - libterm-stool-perl will be removed, so removed relations to it - ensuring an upgrade path, if not a very clean one, for people who had it set to use the slang frontend. You'll get dialog now, and just ignore that nasty set of perl errors you get while upgrading to this version, I can't do anything about it w/o some nasty hacking.
* Put back debconf/helpvisible question, and made the slang frontend toggle it again. This makes changes to the slang frontend help visiable status made by hitting the button persistant again. * In terse mode, default help to not visible no matter what the helpvisible setting. * Closes: #103621
* Introducing terse mode. You know what you're doing, and so you're using the text frontend (of course!) as you do a remote upgrade from rexx over a 30 hop, 95% packet loss link to another continent. Every byte hurts. You don't need all those touchy-feely verbose help screens. Terse mode is for you. (Well, for me anyway. Damn this wireless link.) # dpkg-reconfigure debconf --terse What interface should be used for configuring packages? Text Ignore questions with a priority less than.. low Show all old questions again and again? no * Added DEBCONF_TERSE variable. * Added terse support to text frontend. * Renamed debconf/helpvisible to debconf/terse. * Terse can be configured in debconfrc and with --terse too. * Finally tracked down the mysterious text frontend title printing bug -- it happened if nothing was displayed, but a note was mailed. * Updated korean translation from Eungkyu Song <email@example.com> Closes: #103260 * Added brazillian portuguese po file from Gustavo Noronha Silva <firstname.lastname@example.org>, Closes: #103253
* Added debconf-show, which displays all questinos belonging to a package, their values, and indicates if they have been seen or not, all in a compact format handy for bug reports. Now why didn't I think of this before? * To keep the bit scales balanced, removed an unused template.
* Jacobo Tarrio <email@example.com> contributed a Galician translation, bringing the number of languages supported up to 15.
