1.185.1. RHBA-2011:0400: w3m bug fix update
Updated w3m packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The w3m program is a pager (or text file viewer) that can also be used as a text mode web browser.
* Prior to this update, the RPM spec file did not mark the /etc/w3m/config file "noreplace", allowing the update process to overwrite the configuration without a backup. This error has been fixed, and the /etc/w3m/config file with local changes is now properly backed up when the w3m package is updated. (BZ#615859
* Previously, the NOTES section in the manual page for w3m incorrectly stated that the document is written for the 0.2.1 release of the program. This update corrects this information, and 0.5.1 is now used as expected. (BZ#615865
All users of w3m are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which resolve these issues.
