I'm announcing availability of GNU Screen v.4.2.1

Few days ago I released v.4.2.0 on screen-devel, this release was
status quo of current repository at that time. Almost immediately after
that I started applying patches from distributions and fixing some bugs.
So after doing first release of screen in years it's time for bugfix

  • First of all fixed allowed length of $TERM (rxvt-unicode-256color

  users will mainly notice)

  • Another fix allows for longer logins.
  • Fixed few bugs
  • Applied some patches which were used by various distrbutions

All in all around 40 commits.

Release is available for download at:

Please report any bugs or regressions.
