MC 4.5.55 tagged, 4.5.x branch created

Hash: SHA1


Version 4.5.55 of GNU Midnight Commander has been tagged in CVS by the tag
MC_4_5_55.  Use the following command to retrieve it from CVS:

cvs up -r MC_4_5_55

I don't have the necessary bandwidth to distribute the tarball at this
time, but I do have the tarball.  It should appear on as soon as I get access
to upload it.

The stable branch "Branch_MC_4_5_x" has been created on CVS.  The version
on the branch has been bumped to 4.5.55a.  The version of the head branch
has been bumped to 4.5.99a.

All changes to the GNOME frontend belong to the stable branch only.
Support for GNOME will be removed from the head branch in the next few

Version 4.5.55 is known to work on RedHat Linux 7.1 (i386), Debian
unstable for SPARC, FreeBSD 4.3 (i386), Cygwin 1.3.2 (current) and QNX
Neutrino 6.0.0.  Recent prereleases have been successfully tested by me on
Slackware 7.0, Slackware 7.1 and OpenBSD 2.9 (all i386).  I also have
positive reports about BSDi (i386) and Solaris 2.5.1 (SPARC).

*BSD support is basically on a par with GNU/Linux, except that you are
more likely to need "Learn Keys" and --with-internal-slang.

Cygwin support is very poor.  Both the viewer and the editor emit useless
warnings every time they are used.  But it compiles cleanly.

QNX Neutrino doesn't support subshell by default due to lack of SA_RESTART
support.  It can be compiled with SA_RESTART removed from the system
headers (which is the right thing IMO).  In this case mc works with bash,
but not with zsh.

BeOS is not supported due to serious limitations of its select() call - it
only works on sockets.

The native (non-cygwin) port for Win32 and OS/2 is out of date and does
not work, but can be fixed.
