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

199        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
200        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
201        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
202        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
203        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
206        Fixed memory mishandling bug
207        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
208        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
209             MESSAGE messages
210        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
211            to class and instance
212        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
213        fixed typo in help
214        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support
215        zephyr @ formatting is now case independant
216        added support for color terminals

221        added filter colors
222        added the 'colorview' command

227          color associated with it.
228        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
229        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
230        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
231        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
234        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
235              and spaces in a saner manner.
236        Removed all owl_get_* methods for booleans and switched
237              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
238        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
239        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
240              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
241        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
242              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

307              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
308              a string not ending in a newline
309        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
310              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
311              to "all"
312        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.

323        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
324        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
325              and added regression testing framework to tester
326        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
327        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
328              and the owl_dict type.
329              These include regression tests.
330        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
331              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
332              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
333              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
334              and for setting it to and from string values.
335              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
336              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
337              are generated from variable.c by
338              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
339              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
340        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
341              by variable overhaul.
342        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
343        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
344              print "Undefined variable" in addition
345              to running owl_function_printallvars.
346        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
347        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
348        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
349        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
350               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
351               string with args).
352        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
353        Removed lots of build warnings.
354        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
355        Added an atokenize_free function.
356        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.
357        Added dependencies on header files to
358        Added pageup and pagedown key bindings to message list
359        Added pageup and pagedown to viewwin
360        Added configfile section to doc/intro.txt (from example config file)
361        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
362              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
363              to put information about pings and logins into
364              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
365              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
366              for experimenting with what works well.)
367        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
368        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
371        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
372        don't return in owl_free
375        'print' and 'set' with no arguments prints all variables
376        Added the 'unsubscribe' and 'unsub' command
377        Renamed the 'unsub' command to 'unsuball'
378        Added the 'getsubs' command which is like zctl ret
379        Fixed bug in logging messages sent to more than one recipient
380        Support '-C', '-O', and '-n' options to zwrite
381        Fixed bug in owl_editwin_delete_char when there are no later chars
