2001-10-06 (2.8.5dev.3)
* add CF_MKSTEMP configure macro, from vile, to check for a working mkstemp().
  This will quiet some bogus warning messages in recent runtime support, but
  (see 2.8.3) does not affect the security of temporary files in lynx -TD
* updated CF_PATH_SYNTAX configure macro, from vile, to handle leading "\\" in
  a win32 pathname -TD
* for configurations that provide scrollbar, add a checkbox to the Options menu
  to enable or disable it -TD
* modify LYGetHostByName() in HTTCP.c to use the threaded _WINDOWS_NSL code for
  all Cygwin machines.  The ability to interrupt nameserver lookup has not
  worked in Win98 using the Cygwin port, despite defining _WINDOWS_NSL.  It
  looks like the threaded code was only for WinNT.  At least under Cygwin, that
  code also seems to work fine under Win98 -DK
* add FIELDS_ARE_NUMBERED as a possible value for DEFAULT_KEYPAD_MODE in
  lynx.cfg as well as keypad_mode in .lynxrc -TD
* add NUMBER_FIELDS_ON_LEFT and NUMBER_LINKS_ON_LEFT to lynx.cfg, use these to
  control where field- and link-numbering is placed.  Caveat:  there are some
  cases where fields that do popup's are truncated, e.g., in the Options menu,
  when right-alignment is used -TD
* support for DJGPP's two forms of file addressing, [a-zA-Z]:[/\\] and
  /dev/[a-zA-z]/ -DK
* add samples/lynxdump script, to illustrate how to use lynx -dump with no
  link references (prompted by discussion with LV) -TD
* add samples/keepviewer script, to illustrate how to retain a temporary file
  for use in an external viewer -TD
* add ifdef's in is_url() to avoid recognizing URLs if they are disabled in the
  given configuration, i.e., bibp, finger, ftp, gopher, news (report by
  Frederic L W Meunier) -TD
* modify LYrefresh() to take into account whether a popup window exists, so
  that a search prompt will not overwrite a popup.  This bug was introduced by
  the curses pads (reported by Felicia Neff <address@hidden> and Fr3dY
  <address@hidden>) -TD
* add note in keystroke_help.html about CTRL-V as literal-next (lnext) for
  users who are unfamiliar with stty -TD
* add NcFTP-style ftp-URLs which are supported by Netscape and wget (request
  by Martin Mokrejs) -TD
* add traces in LYReadCFG.c and LYrcFile.c to report lines which are not found
  in the symbol table, to help diagnose when a user adds lynx.cfg information
  to .lynxrc -TD
* define additional -trace-mask option, 8=config -TD
* modify LYtouchline() to avoid using wredrawln() for ncurses, since the
  LYwin variable may be a pad much wider than the screen, which is not handled
  properly (report by Karl Eichwalder <address@hidden>) -TD
* correct beginning configure script, which was supposed to remove
  config.cache, but did not, due to a misplaced line when it was added
  1998-06-04 (prompted by a report by Fr3dY <address@hidden> that the
  checks for srand/rand did not work) -TD
