8.259. x3270

Updated x3270 packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The x3270 packages contain files needed for emulating the IBM 3278 and 3279 terminals, commonly used with mainframe applications.

Bug Fixes

Prior to this update, the x3270 application entered a loop when it was executed with the "-script" option. As a consequence, x3270 terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. With this update, x3270 no longer enters a loop in the above circumstances, and the crash thus no longer occurs.
Due to an error in the underlying code, some Program Function (PF) keys did not work correctly in the X3270 interface. This error has been fixed and the affected PF keys now work as expected.
Users of x3270 are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
