feh v2.12

2014-05-15

feh-2.12.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • feh-cam and gen-cam-menu are no longer installed by default. Use make install cam=1 to install them or make uninstall cam=1 && make install cam=0 to remove them permanently
  • feh no longer depends on giblib. Instead, the relevant parts of the giblib source were imported into the feh source. Rationale: giblib is unmaintained and, as far as I know, only used by three projects (one of which is feh). There is at least one known bug in it, and as I do not have the time to take over giblib development, importing the library seems to be the best solution.
  • Fix/improve --randomize for short filelists (closes #151)
  • Fix a buffer overflow in the printf implementation when handling unknown format specifiers (affects --action, --customlist, --index-info, --info, --thumb-title and --title)
  • Update help (if built with help=1)

  • When setting a wallpaper from a URL, do not try to store it as absolute path in .fehbg (closes #153)
  • Add --scroll-step <px> option to change scroll_{up,left,down,right} scroll offset in pixels
  • feh(1): Escape %V (interpreted as mdoc macro) (closes debian #745467)
  • Respect --image-bg=checks in fullscreen mode (default remains black) (closes #156)

feh v2.10

2014-02-28

feh-2.10.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Allow non-centered wallpapers using the --geometry option (Patch by Joel Bradshaw)
  • Add ; flag to --info (as in "--info ';echo foo'") to disable info display on startup
  • Partially fix off-by-one pixel error when warping the pointer in the bottom/right window border
  • thumbnail mode: If --action is set, run specified command instead of opening image on click.

  • Set EXIF orientation tag to 1 ("0,0 is top left" aka normal) after running jpegtran. Previously, when doing a lossless rotate, the image was rotated but the corresponding EXIF tag not updated, resulting in wrong image display in programs aware of this EXIF tag.
  • Fix spelling in feh(1)

feh v2.6.1

2012-09-13

feh-2.6.1.tar.bz2 (signature)

2012-03-25

feh-2.5.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Add R, * and / bindings for keypad begin, keypad * and keypad /

  • feh --list now uses %S/%P to print image size and amount of pixels
  • make --quiet and --verbose behave more like their documented way, never ignore out of memory errors
  • Use ImageMagick (convert) as loader for unsupported file formats

feh v2.3

2012-02-02

feh-2.3.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Mention URL support in the SYNOPSIS (Debian #655431)
  • Do not refer to --help unless help is compiled in (Debian #657171)

  • The --bg-options now accept multiple filenames, one per Xinerama screen
  • Fix --info bug when the command wrote no lines to stdout
  • The button-options -0 through -9 are no longer supported. Use .config/feh/buttons instead (see feh manpage)
  • New format specifier: %S (size in kB)
  • The --index-{dim,name,size} options are no longer supported. Use --index-info with format specifiers instead
  • The thumbnail index now supports actions on the currently selected thumbnail (patch by Olof-Joachim Frahm)
  • feh now supports make stat64=1 to access CIFS shares mounted from 64bit hosts if the local system is 32bit (for 32<->32 and 64<->64, this works anyways)

feh v1.16.2

2011-09-26

feh-1.16.2.tar.bz2 (signature)

2011-05-19

feh-1.14.1.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Fix compilation with curl=0
  • Make zoom_default key work properly with --geometry

feh v1.14

2011-05-11

feh-1.14.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Only create caption directory when actually writing out a caption. github #42
  • The --menu-bg option has been deprecated. It will be removed along with --menu-style by the end of 2012. github #27
  • read directory contents sorted by filename instead of 'randomly' (as returned by readdir) by default. Thanks talisein! github #20
  • Show certain warnings in the image window as well as on the commandline github #43
  • Since the manual is way better structured and more detailed than the --help output, it now simply refers to the manual. To include the old help text, build feh with 'help=1'
  • You can now use the next/prev/jump keys to navigate thumbnails. Use the render key to open the currently selected thumbnail. github #26
  • Change a patch for NETWM fullscreen support to only apply to fullscreen windows. This fixes the moving windows bug in fluxbox (since fluxbox doesn't report its window border width). github #22 debian #570903
  • Minor manpage fixes. debian #625683
  • Fix --auto-zoom / --zoom max/fill documentation, the "Auto-Zoom" menu option is now always checked when these options are used
  • Set _NET_WM_NAME and _NET_WM_ICON_NAME properties github #44
  • The 'A' key (toggle_aliasing) now actually changes the current window, and not just the default for new windows
  • The zoom_default key now works fine with --scale-down github #41
  • Fix access of uninitialized memory / malloc/realloc clash in continued theme definition handling. Having a theme line with just one option/value pair used to produce undefined behaviour

feh v1.13

2011-04-23

feh-1.13.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Fix segfault upon unloadable images when image-related format specifiers (e.g. %h) are used in --title
  • Show images in current directory when invoked without file arguments
  • Option to disable antialiasing, either global (--force-aliasing) or per image (press 'A' to toggle, keybinding toggle_aliasing)
  • Use SIGUSR1/SIGUSR2 to reload all images in multiwindow mode
  • Fix Imlib2 caching bug in reload (only worked after the second try)
  • The --bg options are now Xinerama-aware. That is, they set the image in the respective mode (scale/fill/max/center) on each Xinerama screen. Use --no-xinerama to disable this.

feh v1.12

2011-03-12

feh-1.12.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Add --zoom fill as equivalent for --auto-zoom
  • Add --zoom max (zooming like in --bg-max)
  • --menu-style is now deprecated
  • http images are now viewed using libcurl, not wget (thanks to talisein). This adds libcurl as dependency, and removes the wget recommendation
  • Slight build system change: make now has flags, e.g. "make xinerama=0 debug=1". By default feh is compiled with xinerama and libcurl support enabled, see README.
  • Remove builtin http client (--builtin)
  • Fix compilation issues with libpng 1.5.1

feh v1.11.2

2011-02-09

feh-1.11.2.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Use wget --no-clobber to prevent TOCTTOU-based hole allowing a well-informed attacker to rewrite arbitrary user files with images. The attacker needs to know feh's PID and the URL the user gave it. It is still possible for an attacker to create arbitrary files via the same hole.

feh v1.11.1

2011-01-26

feh-1.11.1.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Show correct image dimensions in for cached thumbnails
  • Allow commandline options to override those set in a theme

  • Patch by Pascal Bleser: Use getaddrinfo for builtin http client, this enables IPv6 support
  • Fix zooming when --scale-down is used
  • The themes are now read from ~/.config/feh/themes (BC for .fehrc exists)
  • Key bindings can now be configured via ~/.config/feh/keys
  • Removes --rcpath, use XDG_CONFIG_HOME instead
  • Increase movement steps for Ctrl+Left etc.
  • Make in/out zoom use equal zoom ratio

feh v1.10.1

  • Fix buffer overflow when using --draw-actions
  • Fix segfaults after trying to load several unloadable images
  • Fix fehrc created by feh (contined escape errors)

feh v1.10

2010-10-07

feh-1.10.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Patch by Stefan Mark: Add --bg-max (scaled with borders)
  • Removed rather obscure --bg-seamless mode
  • Short option -Y for --hide-pointer
  • Panning via keys: Make it behave like scrolling (inverted directions)
  • Workaround for Xinerama fuckups: Set XINERAMA_SCREEN to the correct xinerama screen number
  • Add --info option to display custom image information
  • Do not change to the next slide when executing an action with ; as first character (this character is stripped when executing the action)
  • Speed up panning, zooming etc. by hiding image overlay text
  • Zoom button: Zoom to 100% on button release, not button click
  • --draw-filename: Always show position in filelist

feh v1.9

2010-08-24

feh-1.9.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Add --fullscreen option, --full-screen is now deprecated
  • Removed --menu-border option, it is largely useless
  • Add short options: -P for --cache-thumbnails, -K for --caption-papth, -G for --draw-actions and -J for --thumb-redraw
  • Patch by Noel Cragg: Improve support for tiling window managers
  • Set correct window title when starting feh in paused mode
  • Add Up/Down keys for zooming
  • When zooming via keyboard: Always zoom around the center of the window
  • The image can now be panned with Ctrl + arrow keys

feh v1.8

2010-06-25

feh-1.8.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • support LDLIBS in Makefile/config.mk
  • Don't make the --thumbnails window fullscreen. The images launched from thumbnail mode may be fullscreen, though. You can still use 'v' to toggle fullscreen, should you really need it.
  • --font now sets the global default font (for action/filename display etc.)
  • Rename --screen-clip 0 to --no-screen-clip
  • Allow multiline theme definitions (via backslash, like in the shell)
  • Center the image after pressing or
  • Saving the filelist from thumbnail mode caused undefined behaviour due to handling of uninitialised memory. Since I consider this a rarely useful action, the feature has been disabled for thumbnail mode.
  • Remove -G/--wget-timestamp option. It was probably not working correctly, plus it contained a code execution hole when used with malicious URLs containing shell metacharacters (but only if those URLs led to a valid file)
  • Don't add ?randomnumber to URLs when downloading them, it confuses some servers and is not really neccessary in general

feh v1.7

2010-06-10

feh-1.7.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Fix segfault in Thumbnail mode when trying to open a no longer existing image (e.g. when the file was renamed by a previous action)
  • Set a negative slideshow-delay to start the slideshow in paused mode
  • Remove Shift+Key bindings, they were doing the same as Nothing+Key anyways. Plus, I might want to bind Shift + to other stuff in the future
  • Documentation improvements
  • Remove undocumented hjkl menu keys. Most of the menu options can also be accessed directly with keys, plus the number of non-qwerty users (which have no use for these shortcuts) is growing.
  • Draw a nice little message when in caption editing mode with empty caption (to indicate that caption editing is actually active)
  • caption mode: Automatically create caption directory if it doesn't exist
  • Slideshow mode: SIGUSR1 = next image, SIGUSR2 = previous image

feh v1.6.1

2010-06-05

feh-1.6.1.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Fix omitted image borders at high zoom levels
  • Re-add getopt_long files (possibly relevant for non-glibc systems)
  • Do not require a running X server for -L, -u, -U options

feh v1.6

2010-06-01

feh-1.6.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Patch by aaptel: Support numpad keys for actions
  • Fix blur mode (Ctrl + left mouse key)
  • Center images in index/thumbnail mode relative to the text below them
  • Support caching of "large" (up to 256x256 pixels) thumbnails
  • New --thumb-redraw option as workaround to speed up thumbnail mode (thumbnail mode redrawing is quite slow, so now a redraw only happens every 10 thumbnails by default - can be changed with this option)
  • Because of that: Major speed improvements for --thumbnails, especially with cached thumbnails
  • Do not link against Xext and freetype, they're only used by other libs
  • Fix "make uninstall". You do NOT want to call this for feh versions 1.4.2 to 1.5

feh v1.5

2010-05-06

feh-1.5.tar.bz2 (signature)

  • Rewrite parts of the menu code & fix a memory leak while there
