GNU Interactive Tools (gnuit) 4.9.2 has been released.

After a long hiatus, gnuit is now being actively maintained again.

gnuit was formerly known as git, with this release the package has been
renamed to gnuit and the file manager binary has been renamed to gitfm.

gnuit can be found at

gnuit (GNU Interactive Tools) is a set of interactive text-mode tools,
closely integrated with the shell.  It contains an extensible file
system browser, an ascii/hex file viewer, a process viewer/killer and
some other related utilities and shell scripts.  It can be used to
increase the speed and efficiency of most of the daily tasks such as
copying and moving files and directories, invoking editors, compressing
and uncompressing files, creating and expanding archives, compiling
programs, sending mail, etc.  It looks nice, has colors (if the standard
ANSI color sequences are supported) and is user-friendly.

One of the main advantages of gnuit is its flexibility.  It is not
limited to a given set of commands.  The configuration file can be
easily enhanced, allowing the user to add new commands or file
operations, depending on its needs or preferences.

What's new:

** Renamed package to gnuit.

** Renamed git file manager binary to gitfm.
   A transitional script to warn users is installed unless configured
   otherwise with ./configure --disable-transition.  Config file
   sections now start with "[GITFM-", but "[GIT-" is still accepted.

** Dropped leading dots from system copies of gitrc files,
   and renamed them to gnuitrc.*
   Files in home directory still start with ".".
   ~/.gitrc.TERM will be tried as a fallback if ~/.gnuitrc.TERM
   doesn't exist.

** Changed code license to GPL version 3 (see COPYING).
   and documentation license to GFDL 1.2 with no Invariant
   Sections, no Front-Cover Texts and no Back-Cover Texts.

** Added 64bit I/O support from Tudor Hulubei.

** New terminals: rxvt-unicode, linux-m, cygwin, Eterm.

** Added commands to manipulate .deb files (Thanks to Bruce Sass).

** Support comparing special files in gitfm.

** Restore screen when exiting.

** Fix copying symlinks.

** Add mail checking to title.

** gitps: added numbers as key bindings for signal selection.

** Fixed a scrolling inconsistency in gitview (Tudor Hulubei).

** Fixed a segmentation fault related to directory names containing
   printf-like sequences (Tudor Hulubei).

** Fixed a segmentation fault in gitps when killed process left you
   off the end of the list.

** Moved the info and documentation files in /usr/share (Tudor Hulubei).

** Fixed a problem with gitps (refresh was resetting the signal type
   to SIGTERM) (Tudor Hulubei).

** gitps: added RefreshAfterKill variable (Default: ON), to autorefresh after
   signalling a process.

** gitps: add horizontal scroll (ESC-g & ESC-J).

** Documentation fixes (Some from Tudor Hulubei).
