Fixed a bug in moving the poiner after an expunge
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 25.7 KB
3        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
4             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
5        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
6        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
7        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
8        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
9        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
10          calculations
11        You can now use %me% in filters
12        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
13        Fixed a bug in moving the poiner after an expunge
16        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
17        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
18        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
19             lock up.
20        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
21             match on this direction
22        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
23             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
24             'out'.
25        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
26        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
27             messages
28        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
29             long_zuser
30        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
31        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
32        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
35        Added the 'search' command.
36        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
37        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
38        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
39        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
40             and put it in functions.c
41        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
42             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
43             been in, the new current message position will attempt
44             to be close to the current position from the last
45             time we visited that view.
46        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
47        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
48        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
49        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
50        The new behavior of last is:
51              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
52              If we are already at the last message in the view,
53              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
54              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
55              of the screen.
56        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
57        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
60        New framework for command handling.
61        New framework for keymap handling.
62        Added commands for everything that is bound
63             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
64        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
65             to be specified on a line.             
66        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
67        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
68        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
69        Added additional options to delete command.
70        The reply command now takes arguments.
71        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
72        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
73        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
74        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
75        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
76        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
77        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
78             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
79             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
80             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
81        Bug in page down fixed
82        C-t will transpose characters
83        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
84             the screen down, leaving the current message off
85             the bottom of the screen.
86        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
87        Fixed M-u description
88        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
89        Added M-N to basic key help
90        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
91        Fixed a quoting problem in
92        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
93        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
94        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
95        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
96        Some buffer overruns fixed
97        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
98                Only the summary is shown with help.
99                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
100        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
101             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
102             identically to previous versions of owl.
103             The following modes are supported:
104             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
105                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
106                           keep the current message roughly near
107                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
108             top         - The current message will always be the
109                           the top message displayed.
110             neartop     - The current message will be one down
111                           from the top message displayed,
112                           where possible.
113             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
114                           message near the center of the screen.
115             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
116                           when user moves the cursor to the top
117                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
118                           the screen will be paged up or down and
119                           the cursor will be near the top or
120                           the bottom.
121             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
122                           when user moves the cursor to the top
123                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
124                           the screen will be paged up or down and
125                           the cursor will be near the center.
126        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
127                The caller must free this string.
128                This will allocate enough memory and thus
129                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
130        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
131                message as having been sent.)
132        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
133                now includes the name of the recipient.
134        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
135                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
136                end of the message.  This is now the default.
137                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
138        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
139        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
140                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
141        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
142        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
143                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
144                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
145                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
146                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
147        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
148                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
149                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
150        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
151                avoid buffer overrun risks.
152        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
153                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
154        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
155                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
156                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
157        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
158        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
159                 replaced with the user's home directory.
160        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
161                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
162                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
163                 sane on admin messages.
164        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
165        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
166        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
167                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
168                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
169                 of the message being replied to.
170        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
171                 M-r --- edit reply to all
172                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
173        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
174        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
175        Added --no-move option to delete command.
176                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
177                be implemented with
178                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
179        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
180                one command which takes arguments.
181                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
182                '--skip-deleted' option, and
183                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
184                Help updated accordingly. 
185                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
186                for 'next personal'. 
187                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
188                to the next and prev commands.
189        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
190        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
191                narrowing, to make it more general.
192        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
193                based on the current message and returns the name
194                of the filter.
195        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
196                matching current" and "move to previous message
197                matching current"
198        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
199                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
200                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
201                depending on the current size of the window.
202                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
203                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
204        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
205                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
206                the proposed zpunt.
207        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
208        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
209        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
210                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
211                value of strings returned by owl commands.
212        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
213                view's filter. 
214        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
215        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
216                narrow and restore the view. 
217        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
218                color messages matching the current one green.
219        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
220        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
221        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
222                contexts, and keybindings.
223        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
224                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
225                of the output now.
226        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
227                and new show commands.
228        Show with arguments produces help on show.
229        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
230                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
231        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
232             returns the string and it will get printed if it
233             was run interactively.
236        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
237        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
238        'show terminal' / 'show term'
239        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now
240        implemented _followlast as an unsupported feature
241        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list
242        added help for 'zpunt' and 'zunpunt'
243        changed the bug address in the startup message
244        can now do 'show status'
245        can now do 'show version'
246        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
247        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
248        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
249        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
250        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
251        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
254        Fixed memory mishandling bug
255        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
256        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
257             MESSAGE messages
258        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
259            to class and instance
260        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
261        fixed typo in help
262        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

269        added filter colors
270        added the 'colorview' command
271        added the 'show colors' command
272        users who don't have a .zephyr.subs get a simpler format for
273          incoming messages
274        If colors are available 'show filters' will show a filter in the
275          color associated with it.
276        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
277        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
278        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
279        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
282        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
283              and spaces in a saner manner.
284        Removed all owl_get_* methods for booleans and switched
285              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
286        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
287        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
288              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
289        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
290              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

351        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
352        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
353        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
354              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
355              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
356              a string not ending in a newline
357        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
358              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
359              to "all"
360        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
361              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
362        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
363              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
364        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will

366        Fixed bug where pclose zsigproc would cause zombies
367        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
368        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
369              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
370        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
371        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
372        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
373              and added regression testing framework to tester
374        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
375        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
376              and the owl_dict type.
377              These include regression tests.
378        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
379              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
380              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
381              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
382              and for setting it to and from string values.
383              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
