Any plans for a new release?

it looks like git head contains many important fixes: code
hardening (e.g. strcpy -> strncpy) and fix for hardoded screenterm
value (commit 37ca949e462a7608572f653848b5a7554964fd53). The latter
is very important, since it fixes segfault which happens when $TERM
is longer than 20 chars, e.g. screen-256color-bce-s[1]. And having
segfault in the latest release of setuid program is not nice.

Of course I can build from git or my own use, but it is hard to
deliver such fixes to distro users, because backporting is required.
So it will be really nice to see screen-4.3.2 release :)


Best regards,
Andrew Savchenko
