7.274. x3270

Updated x3270 packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The x3270 packages provide an emulator for the IBM 3278 (monochrome) and 3279 (color) terminals.

Bug Fix

Prior to this update, the x3270 emulator failed to support the double-byte character set (DBCS). As a consequence, the character sets option for Japanese was disabled. This update modifies the underlying code to enable DBCS and adds the icu packages as a dependency. Now, Japanese character sets are again available.
All users of x3270 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs and add these enhancements.
