  - links 2.20.1:
    * libevent bug fixes
  - includes changes from 2.20:
    * Security bug fixed: when links was connected to tor, it would
      send real dns requests outside the tor network when the
      displayed page contains link elements with rel=dns-prefetch
    * stability improvements
    * file urls support local hostnames
    * mouse support improvement
    * improve interaction with Google
    * Support the zstd compression algorithm
    * Use proper cookie expiry
* Fri Apr 05 2019
  - links 2.19
    * Fixed a crash on invalidn IDN URLs
    * Make font selection possible via fontconfig
    * Show certificate authority in Document info box
    * Use international error messages
    * The -dump switch didn't report errors on stdout write
* Fri Jan 18 2019
  - links 2.18
    * Automatically enable tor mode when the socks port is 9050
    * When in tor mode, invert colors on top line and bottom line
    * Fix an incorrect shift in write_ev_queue
    * Fix runtime error sanitizer warning
    * Add a menu entry to save and load a clipboard
    * Don't synch with Xserver on every pixmap load
    * Fix "Network Options" bug that caused a timeout
    * Fix a possible integer overflow in decoder_memory_expand
    * Fix possible pointer arithmetics bug if os allocated few bytes
    * Add a button to never accept invalid certs for a given server
    * Fix incorrect strings -html-t-text-color
    * Add ascii replacement of Romanian S and T with comma
    * Fix a bug when IPv6 control connection to ftp server fails
* Sat Sep 22 2018
  - links 2.17
    * Fix vrifying SSL certificates for numeric IPv6 addresses
    * Delete the option - it doesn't always work and ftp performance is not an issue anymore
    * Add bold and monospaced Turkish letter 'i' without a dot
    * On OS/2 allocate OpenSSL memory fro the lower heap. It fixes SSL on systems with old 16-bit TCP/IP stack
    * Fix IPv6 on OpenVMS Alpha
    * Support mouse scroll wheel in textarea
    * Delete the option -http-bugs.bug-302-redirect - RFC7231 allows the "buggy" behavior and defines new codes 307 and 308 that retain the post data
    * X11 - fixed colormap leak when creating a new window
    * Fixed an infinite loop that happened in graphics mode if the user clicked on OK in "Miscellaneous options" dialog and more than one windows were open. This bug was introduced in Links 2.15
    * Support 6x6x6 RGB palette in 256-bit color mode on framebuffer
    * Implement dithering properly on OS/2 in 15-bit and 16-bit color mode. In 8-bit mode, Links may optionally use a private palette - it improves visual quality of Links images, but degrades visual quality of other concurrently running programs.
    * Improve scrolling smoothness when the user drags the whole document
    * On OS/2, allocate large memory blocks directly (not with malloc). It reduces memory waste
    * Fixed a bug that setting terminal title and resizing a terminal didn't work on OS/2 and Windows. The bug was introduced in Links 2.16 when shutting up coverity warnings
    * Set link color to yellow by default
    * Delete the option -http-bugs.bug-post-no-keepalive. It was needed in 1999 to avoid some bug in some http server and it is not needed anymore
    * Trust Content-Length on HTTP/1.0 redirect requests. This fixes hangs with misbehaving servers that honor Connection:keep-alive but send out HTTP/1.0 reply without Connection: keep-alive. Links thought that they don't support keep-alive and waited for the connection to close (for example
    * Use keys 'H' and 'L' to select the top and bottom link on the current page
* Sat Jun 30 2018
  - links 2.16:
    * Improve handling of the DELETE key
    * Implement the bracketed paste mode
    * Fix various bugs found by coverity
    * Fix a crash in proxy authentication code
    * Fixed internal error "invalid set_handlers call" on framebuffer
      if links is suspend and terminate at the same time
* Sat Mar 24 2018
  - links 2.15:
    * Rewrite google docs URLs to the download link, so that the file
      can be viewed in external viewer
    * Add the list of domains for which proxy is not used
    * Temporarily replace the stderr handle with /dev/null when
      decoding png or svg images because the libraries may write to
    * Fix improper restarts of connection when http compression is
    * Free cache when using the -source flag, so that memory
      consumption is not dependent on downloaded file size
    * Do not download compressed files. When the server returns
      compressed file and we are downloading, restart the connection
      without compression.
    * Allow browsing files containing characters < 32 in the filename
    * Limit the number of OpenMP threads to 8
    * Fix premature call to OPENSSL_cleanup while some SSL objects
      could still exist
    * Enable -ftree-vectorize and -ffast-math for GCC, so that it uses
      vector instructions. It improves performance of image scaler.
    * Support international domain names
    * Fix reordering of blocked URLs each time options were saved and
    * Fix reading one byte beyond allocated space in case of corrupted
      UTF-8 data - CVE-2017-11114 bsc#1051448
    * Support the brotli compression algorithm using libbrotli
    * Support lzip compression
    * Add a new main menu item 'Windows' for switching windows on
    * Fix an internal error if the gpm server is terminated while
      links is running on a framebuffer
    * Use fsync() when writing the bookmarks or settings
    * Clear host entry in DNS cache when connection failed
    * Use built-in SSL certificates
    * Encode strings to UTF-8 when storing them in a history, it fixes
      a bug when browsing the history if Links is run on multiple
      terminals with different character sets
    * Use absolute time when calculating the time to flush DNS cache,
      HTTPS session cache and keepalive connection cache, so that the
      cache gets flushed when the machine is kept suspended for a
      long time.
    * Report IP addresses in the "Document info" box.
    * Implement a small connection timeout when connecting to a host
      with multiple addresses, so that there is faster fallback from
      IPv6 to IPv4.
    * Replace OpenSSL malloc functions with CRYPTO_set_mem_functions,
      so that when malloc returns NULL, we can free some cached data
      and retry
    * Removed special handling of ".onion" addresses
    * Avoid memcpy with NULL source argument and zero length
    * Make the "dns-prefetch" link prefetch just dns, not the whole
    * Use OpenSSL functions X509_check_host and X509_check_ip if
    * Report status when formatting document or searching
    * Use session cache on https
* Wed Jun 28 2017

    * Fix crash when the user pressed Ctrl-G on a form field
    * Workaround for a bug in librsvg that makes mathematics on
      Wikipedia unreadable
    * Support fourth and fifth mouse button in gpm and framebuffer
    * Fixed bugs when downgrading SSL connection while https proxy or
      socks proxy is used
    * Security bug fixed: Don't load or render the content of
      "407 Proxy Authentication Required" reply when using https
      proxy. This avoids the FalseCONNECT attack. bsc#1022468
      Also, don't allow 401 and 407 responses to set cookies.
    * Pop openssl error stack on every error - make sure that SSL
      errors on one connection do not affect other connections
    * Never select directfb driver automatically unless started with
      the '-driver directfb' option
  - previously patched:
    * Disable SSL compression to avoid the CRIME attack bsc#1022469

  - Version bump to 2.9:
    * Work around some screen-corruption bugs in the OpenVMS terminal driver

      gpm stops drawing the cursor when the mouse is moved).
    * Pring "^" and "_" for <sub> and <sup> tags in text mode
    * An option to fake Firefox in the HTTP header. It modifies User-Agent and
      several other options to be more Firefox-like. This option is also
      automatically turned on when "Connect only via proxies or Socks (useful
      for tor)" is selected. It makes it safer to use Links with tor.
    * Fixed quadratic complexity in the text renderer when exteremely long
      lines were used
    * Do not print the character 0x9b if the display character set doesn't
      have it, because it is interpreted as a control character on the Linux
