+New in 1.9:
+* Many more transliterations.
+* New configuration option --enable-relocatable. See the INSTALL.generic file
+ for details.
+New in 1.8:
+* The iconv program has new options -l, -c, -s.
+* The iconv program is internationalized.
+* Added C99 converter.
+* Added KOI8-T converter.
+* New configuration option --enable-extra-encodings that enables a bunch of
+ additional encodings; see the README for details.
+* Updated the ISO-8859-16 converter.
+* Upgraded BIG5-HKSCS, EUC-TW, ISO-2022-CN, ISO-2022-CN-EXT converters to
+ Unicode 3.2.
+* Upgraded EUC-KR, CP949, JOHAB converters to include the Euro sign.
+* Changed the ARMSCII-8 converter.
+* Extended the EUC-JP encoder so that YEN SIGN characters don't cause failures
+ in Shift_JIS to EUC-JP conversion.
+* The JAVA converter now handles characters outside the Unicode BMP correctly.
+* Fixed a bug in the CP1255, CP1258, TCVN decoders: The base characters of
+ combining characters could be dropped at the end of the conversion buffer.
+* Fixed a bug in the transliteration that could lead to excessive memory
+ allocations in libintl when transliteration was needed.
+* Portability to BSD/OS and SCO 3.2.5.
+New in 1.7:
+* Added UTF-32, UTF-32BE, UTF-32LE converters.
+* Changed CP1255, CP1258 and TCVN converters to handle combining characters.
+* Changed EUC-JP, SHIFT_JIS, CP932, ISO-2022-JP, ISO-2022-JP-2, ISO-2022-JP-1
+ converters to use fullwidth Yen sign instead of halfwidth Yen sign, and
+ fullwidth tilde instead of halfwidth tilde.
+* Upgraded EUC-TW, ISO-2022-CN, ISO-2022-CN-EXT converters to Unicode 3.1.
+* Changed the GB18030 converter to not reject unassigned and private-use
+ Unicode characters.
+* Fixed a bug in the byte order mark treatment of the UCS-4 decoder.
+* The manual pages are now distributed also in HTML format.
+New in 1.6:
+* The iconv program's -f and -t options are now optional.
+* Many more transliterations.
+* Added CP862 converter.
+* Changed the GB18030 converter.
+* Portability to DOS with DJGPP.
+New in 1.5:
+* Added an iconv(1) program.
+* New locale dependent encodings "char", "wchar_t".
+* Transliteration is now off by default. Use a //TRANSLIT suffix to enable it.
+* The JOHAB encoding is documented again.
+* Changed a few mappings in the CP950 converter.
+New in 1.4:
+* Added GB18030, BIG5HKSCS converters.
+* Portability to OS/2 with emx+gcc.
+New in 1.3:
+* Added UCS-2BE, UCS-2LE, UCS-4BE, UCS-4LE converters.
+* Fixed the definition of EILSEQ on SunOS4.
+* Fixed a build problem on OSF/1.
+* Support for building as a shared library on Woe32.
+New in 1.2:
+* Added UTF-16BE and UTF-16LE converters.
+* Changed the UTF-16 encoder.
+* Fixed the treatment of tab characters in the UTF-7 converter.
+* Fixed an internal error when output buffer was not large enough.

+* Improved the ISO-2022-CN-EXT converter: It now covers the ISO-IR-165 range.
+* Updated the ISO-8859-8 conversion table.
+* The JOHAB encoding is deprecated and not documented any more.
+* Fixed two build problems: 1. "make -n check" failed. 2. When libiconv was
+ already installed, "make" failed.
+New in 1.0:
+* Added transliteration facilities.
+* Added a test suite.
+* Fixed the iconv(3) manual page and function: the return value was not
+ described correctly.
+* Fixed a bug in the CP1258 decoder: invalid bytes now yield EILSEQ instead of
+* Fixed a bug in the Georgian-PS encoder: accept U+00E6.
+* Fixed a bug in the EUC-JP encoder: reject 0x8E5C and 0x8E7E.
+* Fixed a bug in the KSC5601 and JOHAB converters: they recognized some Hangul
+ characters at some invalid code positions.
+* Fixed a bug in the EUC-TW decoder; it was severely broken.
