Updated newt packages that add one enhancement are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Newt is a programming library for color text mode, widget-based user interfaces. Newt can be used to add stacked windows, entry widgets, check boxes, radio buttons, labels, plain text fields, and so on, to text mode user interfaces.
Prior to this update, it was not possible to set a color of individual labels, scrollbars, entries, textboxes, and scales. With this update, setting a color of the aforementioned GUI elements is now possible.
All users of newt are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
