New in 1.5: * Added an iconv(1) program. * New locale dependent encodings "char", "wchar_t". * Transliteration is now off by default. Use a //TRANSLIT suffix to enable it. * The JOHAB encoding is documented again. * Changed a few mappings in the CP950 converter. New in 1.4: * Added GB18030, BIG5HKSCS converters. * Portability to OS/2 with emx+gcc. New in 1.3: * Added UCS-2BE, UCS-2LE, UCS-4BE, UCS-4LE converters. * Fixed the definition of EILSEQ on SunOS4. * Fixed a build problem on OSF/1. * Support for building as a shared library on Woe32. New in 1.2: * Added UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE converters. * Changed the UTF-16 encoder. * Fixed the treatment of tab characters in the UTF-7 converter. * Fixed an internal error when output buffer was not large enough. New in 1.1: * Added ISO-8859-16 converter. * Added CP932 converter, a variant of SHIFT_JIS. * Added CP949 converter, a variant of EUC-KR. * Improved the ISO-2022-CN-EXT converter: It now covers the ISO-IR-165 range. * Updated the ISO-8859-8 conversion table. * The JOHAB encoding is deprecated and not documented any more. * Fixed two build problems: 1. "make -n check" failed. 2. When libiconv was already installed, "make" failed. New in 1.0: * Added transliteration facilities. * Added a test suite. * Fixed the iconv(3) manual page and function: the return value was not described correctly. * Fixed a bug in the CP1258 decoder: invalid bytes now yield EILSEQ instead of U+FFFD. * Fixed a bug in the Georgian-PS encoder: accept U+00E6. * Fixed a bug in the EUC-JP encoder: reject 0x8E5C and 0x8E7E. * Fixed a bug in the KSC5601 and JOHAB converters: they recognized some Hangul characters at some invalid code positions. * Fixed a bug in the EUC-TW decoder; it was severely broken. * Fixed a bug in the CP950 converter: it recognized a dubious BIG5 range. New in 0.3: * Reduced the size of the tables needed for the JOHAB converter. * Portability to Woe32. New in 0.2: * Added KOI8-RU, CP850, CP866, CP874, CP950, ISO-2022-CN-EXT, GBK and ISO-2022-JP-1 converters. * Added MACINTOSH as an alias for MAC-ROMAN. * Added ASMO-708 as an alias for ISO-8859-6. * Added ELOT_928 as an alias for ISO-8859-7. * Improved the EUC-TW converter: Treat CNS 11643 plane 3. * Improved the ISO-2022-KR and EUC-KR converters: Hangul characters are decomposed into Jamo when needed. * Improved the CP932 converter. * Updated the CP1133, MULELAO-1 and ARMSCII-8 mappings. * The EUC-JP and SHIFT_JIS converters now cover the user-defined range. * Fixed a possible buffer overrun in the JOHAB converter. * Fixed a bug in the UTF-7, ISO-2022-*, HZ decoders: a shift sequence a the end of the input no longer gives an error. * The HZ encoder now always terminates its output in the ASCII state. * Use a perfect hash table for looking up the aliases.
