talkd - Remote user communication server… more info»
29-Jul-2000: Have talk scroll by screenfuls instead of single lines. Flip the escape-p/n and ctrl-p/n keys, so the other person's window scrolls using ctrl. The rationale is that one scrolls one's own screen much less often and ctrl-combinations are easier to type (and can be held down for repeat) - many keyboards do not have a shifting key that sends an escape prefix. 22-Jul-2000: Fix minor nonexploitable overflow. (Found by "teso".) Fix input handling to not do silly things with 8-bit text input. (noted by several people) Hopefully fix a problem where talk spews trash on tty hangup. Also fix things so that talk doesn't exit until you say so - if the connection breaks, it won't let you type any more, but you can still scroll and read everything the other guy wrote. 21-May-2000: Fix bug in otalk emulation. (Herbert Xu, email@example.com) 21-Dec-1999: Make talk handle window resize better. 14-Dec-1999: netkit-ntalk-0.16 is released. 24-Nov-1999: Total rewrite of curses handling in talk to add support for scrollback. (David A. Holland, firstname.lastname@example.org) 14-Sep-1999: Always ask curses to map input CRs to LFs. (Olaf Kirch, email@example.com) 1-Aug-1999: Complete y2k and y2038 audit. 31-Jul-1999: Redid makefiles/config stuff for new confgen version. 19-Jun-1999: Fix small glitch in talkd man page. Preliminary version of code in repairs.c to handle otalk packets (at least of the kind ytalk emits). It seems current ytalk versions will hork without this. 7-Apr-1999: netkit-ntalk-0.11 released. 9-Dec-1998: We don't need to check for BSD signal semantics now; updated MCONFIG and regenerated configure script. 26-Nov-1998: Fixed bug: the talkd announce message is passed as the format string to fprintf, so if it has %'s in it, we probably crash. Copied <protocols/talkd.h> into include directory, because we need to fiddle with it. Rearrange/clean up talkd source. Removed mytalkd.h. Added lots of checking and paranoia to packet handling. Don't reply to the ctl_addr in the packet; reply to where the packet came from. Created framework for working with bogus packets. Beefed up talkd's debug logging. Cleanup in talk. Removed talk_ctl.h. Fixed the problem where talk goes and blindly binds things to the wrong local addresses. We don't need talk.FvK.patch any more, either. Filter high-ascii control characters in talk as well as regular ones. (Olaf Kirch, firstname.lastname@example.org) Don't zoom off the end of the string fields of the input packet in talkd. (Olaf Kirch, email@example.com) 22-Sep-1997: Fix talkd to use WIFEXITED et al. rather than assume things about the bits returned by wait. 12-Jun-1997: netkit-ntalk-0.10 released. 08-Jun-1997: Pause before clearing the screen on exit. (Peter Tobias, firstname.lastname@example.org) 19-May-1997: glibc fixes from Red Hat. 05-Apr-1997: Added configure script to generate MCONFIG. Fix problem in talkd that issued PERMISSION_DENIED instead of NOT_HERE. (Joerg Kleuver, email@example.com, via Debian) Talk accepts ^H and ^? as erase characters regardless of stty settings. Better utmp handling in talkd. 08-Mar-1997: Split from full NetKit package. Generated this change log from NetKit's. 29-Dec-1996 NetKit-0.09 released. Assorted alpha/glibc patches. (Erik Troan, firstname.lastname@example.org) Assorted bug fixes from Debian. (Peter Tobias, email@example.com) Hardened programs against DNS h_length spoofing attacks. Use inet_aton() everywhere instead of inet_addr(). 8-bit fixes to talk. (Christer Weinigel, firstname.lastname@example.org) Assorted fixes to talk. (Florian La Roche) Talk handles ^Z correctly now. 22-Aug-1996 NetKit-B-0.08 released. (almost) everything now compiles with lots of warnings turned on. talk now beeps correctly with ncurses (fix from Marek Rouchal <email@example.com>.) 25-Jul-1996 NetKit-B-0.07A released. 23-Jul-1996 NetKit-B-0.07 released. Integrated a collection of patches that had been lurking on the net, including the 256-ptys support for telnetd and passive mode ftp. Major security fixes, including to fingerd, lpr, rlogin, rsh, talkd, and telnetd. Do *not* use the sliplogin from earlier versions of this package, either. talkd is flashproof. Much of the code builds without libbsd.a or bsd includes. Massive code cleanup. Almost everything compiles clean with gcc -Wall now. rusers and rusersd do not; patches to rpcgen to fix this would be appreciated if anyone feels like it. New maintainer: David A. Holland, firstname.lastname@example.org date not known NetKit-B-0.06 released. Have talk be interruptable by Ctrl-Z from John Tombs (haven't tested this) date not known NetKit-B-0.05 released. Fixed talk connection problem for multihomed hosts (Pauline Middelink) This patch must be activated by editing the Makefile of "talk" as this is not the correct way to set up a linux host/solve this problem... date not known NetKit-B-0.04 released. Changes to talk and talkd from newer NetBSD versions. date not known NetKit-B-0.03 released.
