The 'zlocate' command can now handle multiple users
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 27.4 KB
4        Outgoing messages now go through the config for formatting
5        Zaway now makes an outgoing message, instead of an admin message
6        The 'zlocate' command can now handle multiple users
9        Started adding code for newmsgproc.  It doesn't fully work yet!
10          Don't use it.
11        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
12        Will attempt to keep the current message as close as possible
13             to the previous current message after an expunge.
14        "set <variable>" and "unset <variable>" now work for boolean variables.
15        Fixed a bug in owl_function_calculate_topmsg_normal that caused a
16          segfault
17        Fixed some typos in the intro doc
18        Removed old zlog functions from zephyr.c
19        Implemented the dump command
20        New startup message
23        Patch to fix memory bug in replying to CC messages
24        If we're on Athena and have static krb (or other) libraries, use
25          them
26        Added "athstatic" program to the release, which handles the above
27        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
28        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
31        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
32             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
33        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
34        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
35        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
36        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
37        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
38          calculations
39        You can now use %me% in filters
40        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
41        Fixed a bug in moving the pointer after an expunge
42        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
43          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
44        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
45          instances out for the 'reply' command.
46        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
47        Started updating the intro document
48        Small changes to help / about
49        The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) now
50          update .zephyr.subs by default.  If either is given the '-t'
51          (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
52        Turned off beeping for hitting the top or bottom of the list of
53          messages
54        Made daemon.webzephyr a special case for smartstrip
55        Added 'out' as a default filter for outgoing messages
58        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
59        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
60        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
61             lock up.
62        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
63             match on this direction
64        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
65             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
66             'out'.
67        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
68        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
69             messages
70        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
71             long_zuser
72        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
73        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
74        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
77        Added the 'search' command.
78        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
79        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
80        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
81        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
82             and put it in functions.c
83        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
84             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
85             been in, the new current message position will attempt
86             to be close to the current position from the last
87             time we visited that view.
88        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
89        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
90        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
91        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
92        The new behavior of last is:
93              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
94              If we are already at the last message in the view,
95              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
96              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
97              of the screen.
98        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
99        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
102        New framework for command handling.
103        New framework for keymap handling.
104        Added commands for everything that is bound
105             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
106        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
107             to be specified on a line.             
108        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
109        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
110        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
111        Added additional options to delete command.
112        The reply command now takes arguments.
113        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
114        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
115        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
116        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
117        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
118        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
119        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
120             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
121             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
122             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
123        Bug in page down fixed
124        C-t will transpose characters
125        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
126             the screen down, leaving the current message off
127             the bottom of the screen.
128        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
129        Fixed M-u description
130        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
131        Added M-N to basic key help
132        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
133        Fixed a quoting problem in
134        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
135        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
136        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
137        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
138        Some buffer overruns fixed
139        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
140                Only the summary is shown with help.
141                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
142        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
143             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
144             identically to previous versions of owl.
145             The following modes are supported:
146             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
147                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
148                           keep the current message roughly near
149                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
150             top         - The current message will always be the
151                           the top message displayed.
152             neartop     - The current message will be one down
153                           from the top message displayed,
154                           where possible.
155             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
156                           message near the center of the screen.
157             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
158                           when user moves the cursor to the top
159                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
160                           the screen will be paged up or down and
161                           the cursor will be near the top or
162                           the bottom.
163             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
164                           when user moves the cursor to the top
165                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
166                           the screen will be paged up or down and
167                           the cursor will be near the center.
168        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
169                The caller must free this string.
170                This will allocate enough memory and thus
171                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
172        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
173                message as having been sent.)
174        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
175                now includes the name of the recipient.
176        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
177                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
178                end of the message.  This is now the default.
179                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
180        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
181        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
182                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
183        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
184        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
185                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
186                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
187                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
188                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
189        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
190                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
191                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
192        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
193                avoid buffer overrun risks.
194        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
195                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
196        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
197                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
198                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
199        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
200        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
201                 replaced with the user's home directory.
202        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
203                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
204                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
205                 sane on admin messages.
206        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
207        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
208        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
209                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
210                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
211                 of the message being replied to.
212        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
213                 M-r --- edit reply to all
214                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
215        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
216        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
217        Added --no-move option to delete command.
218                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
219                be implemented with
220                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
221        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
222                one command which takes arguments.
223                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
224                '--skip-deleted' option, and
225                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
226                Help updated accordingly. 
227                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
228                for 'next personal'. 
229                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
230                to the next and prev commands.
231        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
232        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
233                narrowing, to make it more general.
234        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
235                based on the current message and returns the name
236                of the filter.
237        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
238                matching current" and "move to previous message
239                matching current"
240        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
241                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
242                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
243                depending on the current size of the window.
244                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
245                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
246        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
247                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
248                the proposed zpunt.
249        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
250        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
251        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
252                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
253                value of strings returned by owl commands.
254        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
255                view's filter. 
256        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
257        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
258                narrow and restore the view. 
259        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
260                color messages matching the current one green.
261        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
262        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
263        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
264                contexts, and keybindings.
265        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
266                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
267                of the output now.
268        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
269                and new show commands.
270        Show with arguments produces help on show.
271        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
272                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
273        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
274             returns the string and it will get printed if it
275             was run interactively.
278        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
279        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
280        'show terminal' / 'show term'
281        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now
282        implemented _followlast as an unsupported feature
283        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list
284        added help for 'zpunt' and 'zunpunt'
285        changed the bug address in the startup message
286        can now do 'show status'
287        can now do 'show version'
288        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
289        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
290        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
291        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
292        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
293        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
296        Fixed memory mishandling bug
297        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
298        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
299             MESSAGE messages
300        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
301            to class and instance
302        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
303        fixed typo in help
304        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

327              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
328        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
329        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
330              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
331        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
332              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

395        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
396              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
397              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
398              a string not ending in a newline
399        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
400              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
401              to "all"
402        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
403              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
404        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
405              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)

407              evaluate perl expressions.

413        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
414        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
415              and added regression testing framework to tester
416        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
417        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
418              and the owl_dict type.
419              These include regression tests.
420        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
421              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
422              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
423              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
424              and for setting it to and from string values.
425              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
426              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
427              are generated from variable.c by
428              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
429              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
430        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
431              by variable overhaul.
432        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
433        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
434              print "Undefined variable" in addition
435              to running owl_function_printallvars.
436        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
437        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
438        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
439        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
440               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
441               string with args).
442        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
443        Removed lots of build warnings.

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