Dear All,

what is the preferred screen output library in the
upcoming mc 4.7 and current pre2?
I.e. if one can install both ncurses and slang2 on his system
what mc is to be compiled against, what branch is developed and tested
more active, where are bugs fewer and features more abundant?

Preferred to S-Lang (as default), but Ncurses fully supported too.

With NCurses we have some restrictions (like trouble with drawing of
double lines for boxes). S-Lang is a more powerfull library.

not really (just lack of developers for MC that happen to know both libraries)
