 05.08.02 [pre2] [ak] added patch by Qef Richards :
                      changed the option handling slightly so that invalid arguments to
                      options which want numbers will be detected and a suitable error message printed.

                      files on the commandline in addition to -uDIRs.  Added

  06.01.01 [pre8] [df] Rewrote part of the extension filtering code.
  06.01.01 [pre8] [df] Move the program used to compress man pages
                       (gzip -9vf) up to the top so that it can be
                       disabled easily.
  06.01.01 [pre8] [df] Some HP-UX compilation fixes.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Change zoom_in/zoom_out so that they will break
                       out of maxpect/scale_down mode, and make
                       maxpect/scale_down override each other.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] A whole bunch of other cleanups.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Updated keys help text for rotation/moving.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Fixed bug that caused the image not to update
                       when brightness/contrast/gamma was re-adjusted
                       to 0/0/0 (with either the Enter key or B/C/G.)
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Merged README.SPEED_UP into README.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Don't reset image size when rotating, and scale
                       properly according to maxpect/scale_down.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Fold filter.c into main.c.
  05.01.01 [pre7] [df] Big cleanup: move everything pertaining to the
                       image into a qiv_image struct and pass that as
                       an argument to most functions. Got rid of a lot
                       of global variables.
  04.01.01 [pre6] [df] gzip manpage with -9 (This is required for
                       Debian packages, and is a good idea anywhere).
  04.01.01 [pre6] [df] Replace strcpy/strcat with strncpy/snprintf in
                       rreaddir and move2trash to prevent a few more

  04.01.01 [pre6] [df] Redo color handling: remove GDK deprecated

                       use any color from X's rgb.txt or equivalent
                       (however, you may have to change '123456' to
  03.01.01 [pre5] [df] Fix Makefile to handle fonts with spaces in
                       their names.
  03.01.01 [pre5] [df] Use actual font height when drawing the help
                       screen and statusbar instead of hardcoding it.
  03.01.01 [pre5] [df] Plug text_font and statusbar_background_gc
                       memory leaks.
  03.01.01 [pre5] [df] Use helpstrs in show_help to avoid duplicating
                       the help text.
  03.01.01 [pre5] [df] Change raw keysyms to symbolic names in
  02.01.01 [pre4] [df] Use NULL for the sentinel value in
  02.01.01 [pre4] [df] Updated man page.
  02.01.01 [pre4] [df] Replace random() with rand(), since the
                       HAVE_RANDOM check didn't really work
                       properly, rand is guaranteed to be there,
                       and it's acceptible for the amount of
                       randomness we need. This facilitated some
                       more Makefile improvements.
  02.01.01 [pre4] [df] Reorganized the source layout a bit.
                       Optional code now lives in the lib/ dir.
  02.01.01 [pre4] [df] Resync Makefile.Solaris to Makefile, and
                       make some minor fixes to each.
  01.01.01 [pre3] [df] Updated -e to work properly with the new
                       centering stuff. This is now considered a
                       feature, not a workaround ;-)
  01.01.01 [pre3] [df] Put x and y hints into the window when we
                       create it (should eliminate the "window
                       pops up and then centers itself" problem.)
  01.01.01 [pre3] [df] Removed last traces of wm_handle kludge,
                       and set StaticGravity instead.
  31.12.00 [pre3] [df] Only call gdk_show_window on load, not
                       every single time we update.
  31.12.00 [pre3] [df] Replaced strsort with qsort. (should be
                       faster, doesn't have an illegal name ;-)
  31.12.00 [pre3] [df] Replaced sprintf with snprintf and
                       g_snprintf to prevent any possible overflows.
  31.12.00 [pre3] [df] Cleaned up some extraneous blank lines in
  05.12.00 [pre2] [ak] another PPC fix.
  27.11.00 [pre1] [ak] changed "char c" to "int c" in options.c
                       not worked with char on Linux/ppc
                       (mailed by Jiri Masik )

  05.08.00 [pre3] [ak] cleaned up readmes..
  05.08.00 [pre2] [ak] changed up/down and left/right moving of the image.

                       picture. SIGUSR2 will move to previous.
  15.06.00 [pre3] [ak] re-added b/c/g to titlebar/infoline.
                       painted new intro.jpg *g*

                       order while preserving next and previous functionality.
  13.04.00 [pre1] [ak] cleaned up infoscreen/added more info and kicked "show_info".
  03.04.00 [pre1] [da] The delay time in slideshow mode used to include the time
                           it took for a picture to load.
                           Pressing '?' in non-fullscreen mode results in the help
                           being printed to stdout.


  03.04.00 [pre4] [ak] updated man-page and info-screens. also added "qiv: " to title and info-bar.

                the parameter has been removed.
  14.06.99 [ak] added TO-DO list
  14.06.99 [ej] added slideshow_without_replacement_patch


  27.04.99 [ak] added #include  to image.c
  21.04.99 [df] changed Makefile to use the system's getopt if it's
                availible, took the getopt section back out of
                README, updated install-xscreensaver to use -fitsd
                style options, fixed -h typo.
  21.04.99 [pa] Included GNU getopt_long sources and deleted the
                non-getopt code from options.c.
  20.04.99 [ak] kicked make test ;) now its in make install again.
  20.04.99 [df] added HAVE_GETOPT_LONG conditional compilation stuff
                for Solaris/FreeBSD, rescued xscreensaver stuff from
       into Makefile, shuffled INSTALL into README
                and reformatted a bit.

                of -e, rewrote option-parsing code to use getopt, axed
                really long usage message, header file reorg.
  17.04.99 [ak] removed prefix from don't ask me why, but this
                don't works here with my bash 2.01 :(

           [ak] removed old language.h/stuff.
  02.04.99 [pa] Reorganized everything to use events and not to eat up
                100% CPU time.  Got rid of sleep() in slideshow, thus
                making qiv react faster.  Random now works not only in
                slideshow. In random non-slideshow mode, terms "next
                image" and "previous image" are essentially the same,
                as they both are random.  Image jumping uses main
                event handler now.
  01.04.99 [pa] added utils.c patch for FreeBSD.

                to be a general GDK problem :-( no way to fix it (at the moment)..
                so YOU must tell qiv which WM you are using.. see README selection
                "Center Problem"..
  02.11.98 [de] removed getopt stuff (now qiv manually checks commandline
  30.10.98 [ak] small changes in main.c: now --display :1 or so works.

                it's not fixed 100%, but better then bevore :)
  25.10.98 [de] changed bg_color option to use 24 bits (6 numbers - like HTML)
                cleaned up move2trash function
  24.10.98 [de] added more color names
  22.10.98 [de] --no_filter option works again
                added --bg_color (-o) option to change root background color
                when setting root background image with --root (-x)
  20.10.98 [de] modification to bcg variable names to remove warning on Solaris
