source: ChangeLog @ 0236842

Last change on this file since 0236842 was 0236842, checked in by James M. Kretchmar <>, 22 years ago
Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 24.5 KB
4        Added the 'search' command.
5        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
6        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
7        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
8        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
9             and put it in functions.c
10        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
11             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
12             been in, the new current message position will attempt
13             to be close to the current position from the last
14             time we visited that view.
15        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
16        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
17        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
18        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
19        The new behavior of last is:
20              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
21              If we are already at the last message in the view,
22              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
23              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
24              of the screen.
25        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
26        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
27        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
30        New framework for command handling.
31        New framework for keymap handling.
32        Added commands for everything that is bound
33             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
34        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
35             to be specified on a line.             
36        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
37        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
38        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
39        Added additional options to delete command.
40        The reply command now takes arguments.
41        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
42        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
43        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
44        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
45        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
46        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
47        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
48             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
49             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
50             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
51        Bug in page down fixed
52        C-t will transpose characters
53        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
54             the screen down, leaving the current message off
55             the bottom of the screen.
56        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
57        Fixed M-u description
58        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
59        Added M-N to basic key help
60        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
61        Fixed a quoting problem in
62        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
63        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
64        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
65        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
66        Some buffer overruns fixed
67        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
68                Only the summary is shown with help.
69                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
70        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
71             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
72             identically to previous versions of owl.
73             The following modes are supported:
74             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
75                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
76                           keep the current message roughly near
77                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
78             top         - The current message will always be the
79                           the top message displayed.
80             neartop     - The current message will be one down
81                           from the top message displayed,
82                           where possible.
83             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
84                           message near the center of the screen.
85             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
86                           when user moves the cursor to the top
87                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
88                           the screen will be paged up or down and
89                           the cursor will be near the top or
90                           the bottom.
91             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
92                           when user moves the cursor to the top
93                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
94                           the screen will be paged up or down and
95                           the cursor will be near the center.
96        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
97                The caller must free this string.
98                This will allocate enough memory and thus
99                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
100        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
101                message as having been sent.)
102        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
103                now includes the name of the recipient.
104        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
105                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
106                end of the message.  This is now the default.
107                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
108        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
109        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
110                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
111        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
112        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
113                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
114                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
115                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
116                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
117        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
118                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
119                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
120        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
121                avoid buffer overrun risks.
122        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
123                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
124        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
125                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
126                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
127        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
128        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
129                 replaced with the user's home directory.
130        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
131                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
132                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
133                 sane on admin messages.
134        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
135        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
136        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
137                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
138                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
139                 of the message being replied to.
140        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
141                 M-r --- edit reply to all
142                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
143        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
144        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
145        Added --no-move option to delete command.
146                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
147                be implemented with
148                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
149        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
150                one command which takes arguments.
151                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
152                '--skip-deleted' option, and
153                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
154                Help updated accordingly. 
155                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
156                for 'next personal'. 
157                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
158                to the next and prev commands.
159        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
160        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
161                narrowing, to make it more general.
162        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
163                based on the current message and returns the name
164                of the filter.
165        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
166                matching current" and "move to previous message
167                matching current"
168        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
169                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
170                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
171                depending on the current size of the window.
172                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
173                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
174        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
175                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
176                the proposed zpunt.
177        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
178        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
179        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
180                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
181                value of strings returned by owl commands.
182        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
183                view's filter. 
184        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
185        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
186                narrow and restore the view. 
187        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
188                color messages matching the current one green.
189        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
190        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
191        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
192                contexts, and keybindings.
193        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
194                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
195                of the output now.
196        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
197                and new show commands.
198        Show with arguments produces help on show.
199        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
200                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
201        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
202             returns the string and it will get printed if it
203             was run interactively.
206        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
207        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

215        can now do 'show version'
216        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
217        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
218        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
219        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
220        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
221        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
224        Fixed memory mishandling bug
225        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
226        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
227             MESSAGE messages
228        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
229            to class and instance
230        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
231        fixed typo in help
232        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

239        added filter colors
240        added the 'colorview' command

242        users who don't have a .zephyr.subs get a simpler format for
243          incoming messages
244        If colors are available 'show filters' will show a filter in the
245          color associated with it.
246        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
247        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
248        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
249        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
252        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
253              and spaces in a saner manner.
254        Removed all owl_get_* methods for booleans and switched
255              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
256        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
257        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
258              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
259        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
260              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented
261              variables with this).

321        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
322        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id

324              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
325              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
326              a string not ending in a newline
327        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
328              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
329              to "all"
330        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
331              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
332        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
333              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
334        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will

337        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
338        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
339              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
340        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
341        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
342        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
343              and added regression testing framework to tester
344        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
345        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
346              and the owl_dict type.
347              These include regression tests.
348        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
349              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
350              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
351              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
352              and for setting it to and from string values.
353              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
354              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
355              are generated from variable.c by
356              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
357              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
358        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
359              by variable overhaul.
360        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
361        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
362              print "Undefined variable" in addition
363              to running owl_function_printallvars.
364        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
365        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
366        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
367        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
368               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
369               string with args).
370        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
371        Removed lots of build warnings.
372        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
373        Added an atokenize_free function.
374        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.
375        Added dependencies on header files to
376        Added pageup and pagedown key bindings to message list
377        Added pageup and pagedown to viewwin
378        Added configfile section to doc/intro.txt (from example config file)
