Hello Jan,

Thanks for packaging mrxvt, it's a great tool to have.

That stated, zgreping /usr/share/doc/mrxvt/changelog* doesn't show up
any support for UTF8 and it's getting more and more difficult to 
use with a french environnement.

Normal severity, 'cause hetch is boosting  "UTF-8 environment by default
on new installs" in http://wiki.debian.org/NewInEtch.

thankyou

Hi Fabrice,

I'd love to see UTF support in mrxvt, too, but that is a thing
upstream has to accomplish. There was a feature request for UTF8
more than two years ago[1], but I fear that Jimmy is busy with
other things than getting UTF into mrxvt, which would surely be
a considerable amount of work. I'll ping him again, but I can't
make any promises.


Regards,

Jan
