dgen (1.23-5) unstable; urgency=low
* Introduced a pd_initoptions() function, that is called after rc file
parsing, and before option parsing and pd_option(). It allows the SDL
interface to set the fullscreen and scale values using the values from
the RC file, even if there are no command-line options. (1.23-4 broke
using int_scale and bool_fullscreen from the RC file). Pushed upstream.
