    Release Notes: Fixes were made to port dialog to AIX. Charset specification was added to cs.po. The dates in CHANGES were changed to a consistent format. el.po was added for Greek. Static globals were eliminated from the rc, tailbox, and textbox modules. Temporary files in a few of the sample scripts were cleaned up.

      Release Notes: A large number of new features over the old 0.7 branch; the old one should only be used if necessary.

        Release Notes: The versioning has been changed to the range it should be in; version 0.61a followed 0.6z, which was a huge numerical jump. Since dialog-0.9a-20010115 from the Debian Linux project actually succeeds this one, this should have a version between 0.6z and 0.9a. Patches have been applied that fix some potential bugs and clean up some of the sources so that there are no more compiler warnings.

          Release Notes: This release fixes a tag/item centering bug in both menubox.c and checklist.c, a cosmetic bug in menubox.c where the cursor got left in the menu box when it first came up, and this release now includes a prefix variable to the Makefile for installing into a binary package build area.
