Is this just current master, or is there a branch or tag yet for this release?

The coming tlf-1.3.1 should support the F-keys in xterm-256color too.
There was a fix from Stephen K6BSD some weeks ago. Just test it please.

Just my 2 cents....

Hi Eric.

I would recommend using xterm since it doesn't trap the F11 key, for
example. I use uxterm (xterm with unicode support) with a custom
~/.Xresources which I have attached. I have defined xterm colors
that work well with Tlf for me. Also, be aware that other
terminals often trap other keyboard sequences used by Tlf.

Another thing is that xterm and ncurses (the UI toolkit Tlf uses)
have the same maintainer so they work well together.
