xconsole displays in a X11 window the messages which are usually sent
to /dev/console.

This release fixes use of the scroll wheel in the text area, adds
-version and -help options, and removes support for several older

For those building for 32-bit platforms, it also enables use of the
"large file" APIs - though no file processed by this program should ever
be anywhere near 2GB in size, it is a prerequisite for post-y2038 support.
Since this release was generated using the new GNU autoconf 2.72, this
also adds a --enable-year2038 configure flag which may allow it to
work with files whose timestamps are later than January 19, 2038, but
this has not been tested.

Alan Coopersmith (13):
      configure: Use AC_SYS_LARGEFILE to enable large file support
      Add -version option
      Fix -version handling to not require opening a display first
      Add -help option and usage message when unknown options are given
