4        Outgoing messages now go through the config for formatting
[d023c25]5        Zaway now makes an outgoing message, instead of an admin message

9          Don't use it.
[55faab7]10        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
[486688f]11        Will attempt to keep the current message as close as possible
12             to the previous current message after an expunge.
13        "set <variable>" and "unset <variable>" now work for boolean variables.

18        Implemented the dump command
19        New startup message
22        Patch to fix memory bug in replying to CC messages
23        If we're on Athena and have static krb (or other) libraries, use
24          them
25        Added "athstatic" program to the release, which handles the above
26        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
27        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
30        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
31             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
[42abb10]32        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
33        'l' is bound to 'zlist'

[486688f]40        Fixed a bug in moving the pointer after an expunge
[f9c43ae]41        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
42          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
43        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
44          instances out for the 'reply' command.
45        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
[bde7714]46        Started updating the intro document
47        Small changes to help / about
48        The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) now
49          update .zephyr.subs by default.  If either is given the '-t'
50          (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
[5a6e6b9]51        Turned off beeping for hitting the top or bottom of the list of
52          messages
53        Made daemon.webzephyr a special case for smartstrip
54        Added 'out' as a default filter for outgoing messages
57        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
[75be7c0]58        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
[4b464a4]59        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
60             lock up.
61        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
[5145235]62             match on this direction
[4b464a4]63        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
64             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
65             'out'.
66        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
67        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
68             messages
69        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
70             long_zuser

[61e79a9]73        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
76        Added the 'search' command.
77        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
78        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
79        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
80        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
81             and put it in functions.c
[59cf91c]82        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
83             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
84             been in, the new current message position will attempt
85             to be close to the current position from the last
86             time we visited that view.
[67103d4]87        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
88        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
[9bd2c17]89        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
[5eeea3b]90        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
91        The new behavior of last is:
92              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
93              If we are already at the last message in the view,
94              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
95              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
96              of the screen.
97        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
98        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
101        New framework for command handling.
102        New framework for keymap handling.
103        Added commands for everything that is bound
104             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
105        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
106             to be specified on a line.             
107        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
108        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
109        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
110        Added additional options to delete command.
111        The reply command now takes arguments.
112        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
113        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
114        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
115        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
116        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
117        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
118        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
119             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
120             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
121             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
122        Bug in page down fixed
123        C-t will transpose characters
[aa2f33b3]124        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
125             the screen down, leaving the current message off
126             the bottom of the screen.
[8509c08]127        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
128        Fixed M-u description
129        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
130        Added M-N to basic key help
131        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
132        Fixed a quoting problem in
133        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
134        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
135        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
136        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
137        Some buffer overruns fixed
138        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
139                Only the summary is shown with help.
140                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
[aa2f33b3]141        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
[8509c08]142             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
143             identically to previous versions of owl.
[aa2f33b3]144             The following modes are supported:
[8509c08]145             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
146                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
147                           keep the current message roughly near
148                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
149             top         - The current message will always be the
150                           the top message displayed.
151             neartop     - The current message will be one down
152                           from the top message displayed,
153                           where possible.
154             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
155                           message near the center of the screen.
156             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
157                           when user moves the cursor to the top
158                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
159                           the screen will be paged up or down and
160                           the cursor will be near the top or
161                           the bottom.
162             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
163                           when user moves the cursor to the top
164                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
165                           the screen will be paged up or down and
166                           the cursor will be near the center.
167        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
168                The caller must free this string.
169                This will allocate enough memory and thus
170                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
171        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
172                message as having been sent.)
173        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
174                now includes the name of the recipient.
175        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
176                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
177                end of the message.  This is now the default.
178                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
179        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
180        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
181                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
182        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
183        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
184                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
185                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
186                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
187                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
188        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
189                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
190                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
191        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
192                avoid buffer overrun risks.
193        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
194                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
195        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
196                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
197                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
198        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
199        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
200                 replaced with the user's home directory.
201        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
202                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
203                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
204                 sane on admin messages.
205        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
206        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
207        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
208                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
209                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
210                 of the message being replied to.
211        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
212                 M-r --- edit reply to all
213                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
214        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
215        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
216        Added --no-move option to delete command.
217                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
218                be implemented with
219                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
220        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
221                one command which takes arguments.
222                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
223                '--skip-deleted' option, and
224                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
225                Help updated accordingly. 
226                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
227                for 'next personal'. 
228                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
229                to the next and prev commands.
230        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
231        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
232                narrowing, to make it more general.
233        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
234                based on the current message and returns the name
235                of the filter.
236        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
237                matching current" and "move to previous message
238                matching current"
239        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
240                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
241                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
242                depending on the current size of the window.
243                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
244                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
245        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
246                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
247                the proposed zpunt.
248        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
249        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
250        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
251                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
252                value of strings returned by owl commands.
253        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
254                view's filter. 
255        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
256        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
257                narrow and restore the view. 
258        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
259                color messages matching the current one green.
260        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
261        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
262        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
263                contexts, and keybindings.
264        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
265                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
266                of the output now.
267        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
268                and new show commands.
269        Show with arguments produces help on show.
270        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
271                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
[7d4fbcd]272        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
[8509c08]273             returns the string and it will get printed if it
274             was run interactively.
277        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
278        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
279        'show terminal' / 'show term'
280        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now
281        implemented _followlast as an unsupported feature
282        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list

287        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
288        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
289        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
290        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
291        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
292        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
295        Fixed memory mishandling bug
296        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
297        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
298             MESSAGE messages
299        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
300            to class and instance
301        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
302        fixed typo in help
303        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

316          color associated with it.
317        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

319        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
320        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)

326              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
327        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
328        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
329              was overflowing and truncating the help message).

390        Added owl_function_delete_by_id(id) which acts independent of view

392        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
393        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
394        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
395              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
396              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
397              a string not ending in a newline
398        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
399              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults

414              and added regression testing framework to tester
415        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
416        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
417              and the owl_dict type.
418              These include regression tests.
419        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
420              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
421              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
422              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
423              and for setting it to and from string values.
424              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
425              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
426              are generated from variable.c by
427              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
428              so all information about most variables is in one place.

430              by variable overhaul.
431        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.

433              print "Undefined variable" in addition
434              to running owl_function_printallvars.
435        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
436        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
437        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
438        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
439               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
440               string with args).
441        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.

450        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
451              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
452              to put information about pings and logins into
453              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
454              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
455              for experimenting with what works well.)
456        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
457        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
