the texts provided by the Qt GUI library are not available in that
- The EAGLE program texts have been translated to Chinese (note that

* User Language:

- The new User Language functions neterror(), netget() and netpost() can
be used to access remote sites on the Internet.
- The User Language function t2string() now has an optional format parameter.
- The User Language now provides functions for processing XML code (see
"Help/User Language/Builtins/Builtin Functions/XML Functions").
- The User Language function language() now by default returns "en" if no
valid language code can be determined.
- The new User Language function country() can be used to determine the
country code of the current system (see "Help/User
Language/Builtins/Builtin Functions/Miscellaneous Functions/country()").
- The image URL in the <img...> tag of HTML texts may now also be external
(<img src="http://...">).
- The new User Language dialog function dlgSelectionChanged() can be used
to determine whether the current selection in a dlgListView or dlgListBox
has changed.
- The new User Language Program 'designlink.ulp' can be used to access
Premier Farnell's online product database.
Note that currently the DesignLink server has problems delivering more
than 50 search results at a time, and can only deliver the first 500
search results, even if it reports more than 500 hits for any given search.
- The User Language dialog objects dlgTextView and dlgLabel now open
external hyperlinks with the appropriate application program.

its string array is changed.

store parameters in the user's eaglerc file.

to make the first item according to the current sort column the selected

* Miscellaneous:

- Reverted "Fixed calculating mask data for SMDs with a non-zero roundness"
from version 5.7.0, because this caused apertures to be drawn that used
to be flashed.
- Hyperlinks contained in the descriptions of files or library objects
are now opened with the appropriate application program.
- Removed the remark on t/bPlace automatically selecting t/bNames etc.
from the English version of the online help of the DISPLAY command
(this was overlooked in version 4.92.3).

* Bugfixes:

- Fixed setting the text orientation when adding a new attribute via the
command line.
- Fixed adding the default ".scr" extension in EXPORT NETSCRIPT.
- Fixed detecting objects inside hatched polygons that would "fall through"
the hatch lines.
- Fixed generating the eaglecon.exe file on Windows systems where a
realtime virus scanner blocks patching executable files.
- Fixed a crash under Linux if the mouse cursor is inside a combo box in
the parameter toolbar, and a new command is started, so that the content
of the parameter toolbar changes.
- Fixed alphanumeric sorting by file type in the tree view of the Control
- Fixed marking the current sort mode in the Control Panel's "View/Sort".
- Fixed showing an invoked gate when double clicking on it in the INVOKE
- Fixed displaying the list items of already invoked gates in the INVOKE
dialog with a dimmer color.
- Fixed wrongfully assigning generated names to buses when doing
- Fixed updating the Control Panel's tree view if an Autorouter control
file is saved to disk.

attribute with a value that is longer than the related placeholder text.
