Hey everyone,

I've got better support for the enhanced 5250 protocol working now. I also fixed the way x5250 works with windows when using enhanced support. I've also started work with scrollbars. While the patch is still largely more proof of concept rather than final code, at least now things work; specifically, 5250 windows are working properly.

I've also released a new version of x5250 that fixes an attribute bug as well as using the new features of tn5250. It also has very preliminary support for scrollbars (i.e. it shows a box for the scrollbar). In order to use the new abilities you must apply the enhanced patch to tn5250 and compile x5250 with the -DENHANCED flag. This can be done by something similar to the following csh command before running ./configure:


Get the patch for tn5250 from:


And the x5250 source is available at the usual place:
