Enca 1.17

Last version of Enca has been released more than year ago and now it's time for new release. There are various compatibility fixes which have been committed to the Git repository meanwhile.

If you don't know Enca, it is an Extremely Naive Charset Analyser. It detects character set and encoding of text files and can also convert them to other encodings using either a built-in converter or external libraries and tools like libiconv, librecode, or cstocs.

Full list of changes for 1.17 release:

  • Fixed conversion of GB2312 encoding with iconv
  • Fixed iconv conversion on OSX
  • Documentation improvements
  • Fixed execution of external converters with ACLs
  • Improved test coverage to 80%

Still enca is in maintenance mode only and I have no intentions to write new features. However there is no limitation to other contributors :-).
