gettext-runtime- RPM for x86_64

From OpenSuSE Leap 15.1 for x86_64

Name: gettext-runtime Distribution: openSUSE Leap 15.1
Version: Vendor: openSUSE
Release: lp151.4.4 Build date: Sun Mar 17 09:21:47 2019
Group: Development/Tools/Other Build host: lamb26
Size: 2134882 Source RPM: gettext-runtime-
Summary: Tools for Native Language Support (NLS)
This package contains the intl library as well as tools that ease the
creation and maintenance of message catalogs. It allows you to extract
strings from source code. The supplied Emacs mode (po-mode.el) helps
editing these catalogs (called PO files, for portable object) and
adding translations. A special compiler turns these PO files into
binary catalogs.

      fatal and terminate the command execution.
  - switch to xz tarball
* Tue Jun 03 2014
  - GNU gettext 0.19:
    - Programming languages support:
    * Desktop Entry:
      xgettext and msgfmt now support .desktop files, used by
      desktop applications, as input and output.
    * GSettings:
      xgettext now supports GSettings schema file format used by
      GNOME applications.
    * JavaScript:
      xgettext now recognizes E4X (ECMA-357) constructs.
    * PHP:
      Single and double quotes around heredoc markers are now
    * Python:
      The acceptable format specifiers in the braced-syntax format
      strings is now limited to the Standard Format Specifiers, to
      reasonably avoid false-positives.
    * Scheme:
      The gettext shorthand form _"abc", used by GIMP script-fu, is
      now recognized by xgettext.
    * C and Vala:
      xgettext now recognizes C99-style Unicode character escapes.
    - The --add-location option of msgattrib, msgcat, msgcomm,
      msgconv, msgen, msgfilter, msggrep, msgmerge, msguniq, and
      xgettext commands now takes an optional argument 'never',
      'full', or 'file', to control the format of "#: ..." comments.
    - msgfmt now has --source option to keep generated .java file
      when running in Java mode.
    - msgattrib now has --empty option that sets msgstr to empty when
      clearing fuzzy flag.
    * msgexec and msgfilter pass the plural information to subprocess
      through the environment variable MSG{EXEC,FILTER}_MSGID_PLURAL
    * New built-in filters 'quot' and 'boldquot' have been added to
      msgfilter.  These filters convert Latin quotation marks ('...',
      "...") into Unicode quotation marks (for example, U+2018) if
      possible, similar to the sed commands used in po/Rules-quot and
    * The po/Makevars file has a couple of new options
      used to adjust the behavior of updating PO files on demand.
    * xgettext now strips prefixed string before the comment tag.
      This is useful to support C-style comment like this:
    * TRANSLATORS: first line
    * second line
    * /
    * In this example, the extracted comment does not contain "* " at
      the beginning of each line.
    * libgettextpo library:
    - Memory leak fixes in the PO file parser.
    * Documentation:
    - A complete example showing the use of GNU gettext in a
      GNOME 3 application has been added
* Sun Jan 12 2014
  - GNU gettext
    * Add missing extern-inline.m4 into archive.
  - verify source signature
* Tue Dec 24 2013
  - avoid testing gnulib copies - we're not interested in bugs in gnulib
    as we don't use it
* Sun Oct 20 2013
  - Split extra documentation in /usr/share/doc into separate
  - Substitute %_prefix/share => %_datadir and
    %_defaultdocdir/%name => %_docdir
* Wed Oct 02 2013
  - Version including a hotfix for autopoint
    not copying intl library if asked to (fixes build failures in 13.1)
* Mon Aug 12 2013
  - Version 0.18.3 - July 2013
    * Runtime behaviour:
      On Mac OS X systems, the setlocale() function now properly
      invalidates loaded message catalogs when a locale has been set.
    * Programming languages support:
    - C++:
      The gnu::autosprintf class now provides an assignment
    - Glade:
      xgettext now supports GtkBuider file format used by Glade 3.
      xgettext now also extracts contexts (msgctxt) from Glade 2
      and GtkBuider files.
    - JavaScript:
      xgettext now partially supports JavaScript.  Since the
      current JavaScript specification (ECMA-262) does not define
      the standard set of formatting methods nor translation
      functions, the implementation supports only a limited
      set of formatting methods and translation functions commonly
      used in Gjs and other popular JavaScript implemenations and
    - Lua:
      xgettext now supports Lua, using Ľubomír Remák's lua-gettext.
    - Python:
      xgettext and msgfmt's format string checking now recognize
      Python format string in braced syntax (PEP 3101).  xgettext
      now also supports explicit string concatenation with '+' and
      handles platform dependent line terminators (LF/CR/CRLF)
    - Tcl:
      Bug fix in xgettext Unicode escape handling.
    - Vala:
      xgettext now supports Vala.
    * msgattrib now has --previous option to keep previous msgid when
      making messages fuzzy, similar to msgmerge --previous.
    * msgfmt now checks PO file headers more strictly with less
    * 'gettextize' now checks macro directories specified with
    * Portability:
    - msginit now does not require GNU sed.
    - The Makefile rule for generating en@quot and en@boldquot now
      uses @SED@ variable instead of hard-coded 'sed' command to
      allow users to supply GNU sed.
    * Future backward-incompatibilities:
    - In future Gettext versions, the files installed by
      'gettextize' will require Automake 1.10 or later.  This will
      improve the compatibility of user projects with newer
      Automake versions.
  - Remove upstreamed patches:
* Tue Jun 25 2013
  - add gettext-fix-tcl-u-escape-sequences.patch in order to fix
    the handling of Tcl \u escape sequences (bnc#826422)
* Wed Jun 19 2013
  - move the provides of gettext-devel to gettext-tools-mini too
* Tue Jun 18 2013
  - more conflicts between the minis
* Tue Jun 18 2013
  - make gettext-runtime conflict with gettext-runtime-mini
* Tue Jun 18 2013
  - Add gettext-runtime-mini.spec that reverts to using the included
    library sources
* Sat Jun 15 2013
  - Add glib2-devel libcroco-devel libxml2-devel to build requires to avoid
    using the included copies.
  - gettext-configure.patch: Fix syntax in libxml check to avoid spurious
* Sat Jun 08 2013
  - Update to version Version 0.18.2 - December 2012
    + xgettext now understands the block comment syntax of Guile 2.0.
    + libgettextpo library:
    * The initial msgstr of a new message is now "", not NULL.
    * Bug fixes in the functions po_message_is_range,
      po_file_check_all, po_message_check_all.
    + Installation options:
      The configure options --with-xz and --with-bzip2 can be used to
      specify alternate compression methods for the archive used by
      the 'autopoint' program. These options, together with
    - -with-git, allow to trade dependencies against installed
      package size. --with-xz has the highest compression rate,
      followed by --with-git, followed by --with-bzip2.
    + Autoconf macros:
    * The autoconf macros installed by 'gettextize' now work with
      the forthcoming Automake 1.14 and require Autoconf version
      2.60 or newer.
    + Portability:
    * Building on MacOS X 10.7, Cygwin 1.7.10, and newer 64-bit
      mingw is now supported.
  - Remove obsolete patches:
    + gettext-codecleanup.patch
* Fri May 31 2013

    fail randomly.
* Thu Jan 12 2012
  - Remove cvs, not used anymore since 0.18.1 in our build.
* Sun Oct 02 2011
  - revert last change - it is not the testsuite that hangs
    but everything. The better workaround is to disable openmp
* Sat Oct 01 2011
  - add libtool as buildrequire to make the spec file more reliable
* Sat Oct 01 2011
  - Test suite hangs in qemu-arm due to bugs in the emulator
    workaround this issue.

* Fri Jan 07 2011
  - Also add gettext-tools to baselibs.conf, wine-devel now needs
* Tue Dec 21 2010
  - Update to 0.18.1. Changes since 0.17:
    Version 0.18.1 - June 2010
    * msggrep: A '$' anchor in a regular expression now also matches
      the end of the string, even if it does not end in a newline.
    * Dependencies:
      The libraries and programs are now linked with libunistring if
      this library is already installed.
    * Installation options:
      The configure option --with-cvs is deprecated. The 'autopoint'
      program will now use the 'git' program by default to compress its
      archive.  If the configure option --without-git is specified,
      'autopoint' will not rely on 'git', but will instead rely on a
      locally installed 3 MB large archive.
    Version 0.18 - May 2010
    * PO file format:
      There is a new field 'Language' in the header entry.  It denotes
      the language code (plus optional country code) for the PO file.
      This field can be used by automated tools, such as spell
      checkers. It is expected to be more reliable than looking at the
      file name or at the 'Language-Team' field in the header entry.
      msgmerge, msgcat, msgen have a new option --lang that allows to
      specify this field. Additionally, msgmerge fills in this new
      field by looking at the 'Language-Team' field (if the --lang
      option is not given).
    * xgettext and PO file format:
      For messages with plural forms, programmers can inform the
      translators about the range of possible values of the numeric
      argument, like this:
      /* xgettext: range: 0..15 */
      This information 'range: 0..15' is stored in the PO file as a
      flag attached to the message. Translators can produce better
      translations when they know that the numeric argument is small.
    * Colorized PO files:
      msgattrib, msgcomm, msgconv, msgen, msgfilter, msggrep, msginit,
      msgmerge, msgunfmt, msguniq, xgettext now have options --color
      and --style, like msgcat has since version 0.17.
    * msgmerge is up to 10 times faster when the PO and POT files are
      large. This speedup was contributed by Ralf Wildenhues.
    * msgcmp has a new option -N/--no-fuzzy-matching, like msgmerge has
      since version 0.12.
    * msgfilter now sets environment variables during the invocation of
      the filter, indicating the msgid and location of the messge being
    * xgettext now can extract plural forms from Qt 4 programs. The
      recommended xgettext command-line options for this case are:
    - -qt --keyword=tr:1,1t --keyword=tr:1,2c,2t --keyword=tr:1,1,2c,3t
    * xgettext --language=GCC-source now recognizes also the format
      strings used in the Fortran front-end of the GCC compiler, and
      marks them as 'gfc-internal-format'.
    * autopoint can now be used to update several PO directories all
    * PO mode changes:
    - PO files with plural entries are now correctly handled.
    - Editing a message with previous msgid (in comments) removes these
      comments.  Contributed by Noritada Kobayashi.
    * The po/Makevars file has a new field MSGMERGE_OPTIONS, that can
      be used to adjust msgmerge's operation.
    * The use of the macro AM_GNU_GETTEXT without 'external' argument
      and the --intl option of the gettextize program are deprecated
      and will be removed in the next release. Instead of including
      the intl sources in your package, we suggest making the libintl
      library an (optional) prerequisite of your package.
    * Updated the meaning of 'gcc-internal-format' to match GCC 4.3.
    * Installation options:
      The configure options --without-cvs and --with-git can be used to
      specify whether 'autopoint' will use the 'cvs' program, or the
      'git' program, or none at all. These options allow to trade
      dependencies against installed package size: If --without-cvs is
      specified and --with-git is not specified, 'autopoint' will not
      rely on 'cvs' or 'git', but will instead rely on a locally
      installed a 3 MB large archive.
    * Portability: The msgfilter program now also works on native Woe32
    - platforms. Compiled C# message catalogs now also work with
    - 'mono' versions from 2009
      or newer.
* Mon Jun 28 2010
  - use %_smp_mflags
* Fri Mar 05 2010
  - remove gettext-tools/gnulib-m4/openmp.m4: fix build with new
* Sun Dec 13 2009
  - add baselibs.conf as a source
* Tue Dec 08 2009
  - enable parallel building
* Thu Jul 23 2009
  - Synch po-mode.el with version from gettext CVS; for details, see the
    beginning of po-mode-cvs-2009-07-23.patch.
