13
14 Version 0.85
15 ------------
16 Compatibility with LuaTeX 0.74+ (Lua 5.2).
17
18 Version 0.84 (TeX Live 2012)
19 ============================
20 Fix -f output when TEXMFHOME contains a list of paths. Bug sort-of reported
21 by Matthew Leingang, see http://tex.stackexchange.com/questions/42920/
22
23 Version 0.83
24 ------------
25 Minor adjustments in the scoring system.
26
27 Version 0.82
28 ------------
29 Fixes to the default viewer/destkop environment detection:
30 - try gvfs-open with Gnome
31 - always try xdg-open first (usually more up-to-date)
32 Thanks to Axel E. Retif for informing me that newer versions of Ubuntu don't
33 ship gnome-open by default any more.
34
35 Version 0.81 (TeX Live 2011)
36 ============================
37
38 Allow configuration files to be found in all TEXMF trees.
39 The default one should now be installed in TEXMFDIST (in upstream TeX Live) or
40 in a tree search after TEXMFLOCAL (in downstream distros).
41
42 Delay default viewer detection, see:
43 http://tug.org/pipermail/tex-live/2011-May/029150.html
44
45 Drop long-deprecated things:
46 - --search (-> --showall), --verbosity-level and old syntax of -v
47 - alias_switch, -a, -A, --alias, --noalias
48 - 'regex' mode,
49
50 Various internal cleanups and rearrangements.
51
52 Version 0.80
53 ============
54
55 New 'lang' configuration option (defaults on system locale): now <name>-de.pdf
56 wins over <name>.pdf if German is preferred. Patch kindly provided by Philipp
57 Stephani. Also works with aliases (eg koma-de = scrguide wins over koma =
58 scrguien).
59
60 Document the previously undocumented options from 0.72-tl2010.
61
62 Accept htm as a valid extension, synonym for html. Emit less warnings about
63 viewers.
64
65 Version 0.72 as in TeX Live 2010
66 --------------------------------
67
68 New (undocumented) settings (bad)basenme_list, parallel to (bad)ext_list.
69
70 New (undocumented) setting item suffix_list for known documentation suffixes,
71 previously hardcoded.
72
73 New (undocumented) option --just-view for use by front-end programs.
74
75 Version 0.72
76 ------------
77
78 Fix stupid bug introduced in 0.70: texdoc would crash if called without
79 arguments. (Reported by Maxime Chupin.)
80
81 Version 0.71
82 ------------
83
84 Fix bug introduced in 0.70: some results were duplicated on windows. (Reported
85 by Uwe Siart.)
86
87 Version 0.70
88 ============
89
90 Use information from the TeX Live package database (some of it coming from the
91 CTAN catalogue) to improve search results. Display some of this information.
92
93 Show the current settings in --help message.
94
95 Misc. internal changes & fixes.
96
97 Deprecate -a, --alias, -A, --noalias and alias_switch.
98
99 Version 0.66
100 ------------
101
102 Turn the -v=N, --verbosity=N command-line option into a pair of related options
103 -v, --verbose and -q, --quiet (more standard, Karl's suggestion). Also remove
104 uselessly verbose debug items so --debug is usable again.
105
106 Rework help text (Karl's suggestion).
107
108 Issue a warning about DISPLAY not being set on generic Unix before trying to
109 start a viewer.
110
111 Small internal clean-ups.

142 ============
143
144 Changed the search/alias/score logic. See section 2 of the manual for details,
145 but here is a primer:
