St has been updating the terminfo on installation on its own. The recom‐
mended way to install suckless software always has been to compile it
from source. So there is no real reason to care for the current terminfo
definiton to be in the ncurses terminfo database. It would be nice, but
it isn’t a must.

For the stable release: Yes, it’s time. The utf decoder seems to be sta‐
ble enough and there aren’t any more pending definition complaints for
the key array. Are there any patches still pending? If not, I will make
a new st release.
