Synchronet now requires the libarchive development package (e.g. libarchive-dev on Debian-based Linux distros, libarchive.org for more info) to build successfully.

    Use display aspect ratio, not pixel for tracking. · a5c619fc

    People are used to thinking about the aspect ratio of displays and
    used to not thinking at all about that of pixels.  Most of the modes
    are simplt 4:3 modes and the text area is the entire window.  The
    only oddball here is the Commodore 64 and 128 40-column modes.
    Because they have a border around them that's wider on the sides than
    the top/bottom, the display aspect ratio is actually narrower than
    a normal NTSC screen (6:5).  It seems the PAL version actually has
    square pixels, but nobody has asked for a PAL Commodore mode, and I
    think that has a different colour palette too so I'm not doing it.
    
    Just to frustrate DigitalMan a bit, the default custom aspect ratio
    is now 4:3 (but can be configured).  At present, modifying the custom
    mode while *in* the custom modes "works", which no sane person would
    want when adjusting the aspect ratio.
