Added the dump command removed old zlog functions
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 27.2 KB
4        Started adding code for newmsgproc.  It doesn't fully work yet!
5          Don't use it.
6        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
7        Will attempt to keep the current message as close as possible
8             to the previous current message after an expunge.
9        "set <variable>" and "unset <variable>" now work for boolean variables.
10        Fixed a bug in owl_function_calculate_topmsg_normal that caused a
11          segfault
12        Fixed some typos in the intro doc
13        Removed old zlog functions from zephyr.c
14        Implemented the dump command
15        New startup message
18        Patch to fix memory bug in replying to CC messages
19        If we're on Athena and have static krb (or other) libraries, use
20          them
21        Added "athstatic" program to the release, which handles the above
22        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
23        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
26        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
27             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
28        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
29        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
30        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
31        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
32        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
33          calculations
34        You can now use %me% in filters
35        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
36        Fixed a bug in moving the pointer after an expunge
37        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
38          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
39        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
40          instances out for the 'reply' command.
41        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
42        Started updating the intro document
43        Small changes to help / about
44        The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) now
45          update .zephyr.subs by default.  If either is given the '-t'
46          (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
47        Turned off beeping for hitting the top or bottom of the list of
48          messages
49        Made daemon.webzephyr a special case for smartstrip
50        Added 'out' as a default filter for outgoing messages
53        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
54        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
55        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
56             lock up.
57        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
58             match on this direction
59        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
60             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
61             'out'.
62        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
63        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
64             messages
65        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
66             long_zuser
67        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
68        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
69        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
72        Added the 'search' command.
73        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
74        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
75        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
76        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
77             and put it in functions.c
78        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
79             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
80             been in, the new current message position will attempt
81             to be close to the current position from the last
82             time we visited that view.
83        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
84        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
85        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
86        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
87        The new behavior of last is:
88              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
89              If we are already at the last message in the view,
90              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
91              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
92              of the screen.
93        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
94        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
97        New framework for command handling.
98        New framework for keymap handling.
99        Added commands for everything that is bound
100             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
101        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
102             to be specified on a line.             
103        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
104        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
105        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
106        Added additional options to delete command.
107        The reply command now takes arguments.
108        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
109        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
110        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
111        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
112        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
113        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
114        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
115             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
116             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
117             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
118        Bug in page down fixed
119        C-t will transpose characters
120        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
121             the screen down, leaving the current message off
122             the bottom of the screen.
123        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
124        Fixed M-u description
125        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
126        Added M-N to basic key help
127        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
128        Fixed a quoting problem in
129        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
130        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
131        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
132        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
133        Some buffer overruns fixed
134        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
135                Only the summary is shown with help.
136                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
137        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
138             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
139             identically to previous versions of owl.
140             The following modes are supported:
141             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
142                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
143                           keep the current message roughly near
144                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
145             top         - The current message will always be the
146                           the top message displayed.
147             neartop     - The current message will be one down
148                           from the top message displayed,
149                           where possible.
150             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
151                           message near the center of the screen.
152             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
153                           when user moves the cursor to the top
154                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
155                           the screen will be paged up or down and
156                           the cursor will be near the top or
157                           the bottom.
158             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
159                           when user moves the cursor to the top
160                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
161                           the screen will be paged up or down and
162                           the cursor will be near the center.
163        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
164                The caller must free this string.
165                This will allocate enough memory and thus
166                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
167        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
168                message as having been sent.)
169        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
170                now includes the name of the recipient.
171        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
172                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
173                end of the message.  This is now the default.
174                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
175        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
176        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
177                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
178        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
179        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
180                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
181                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
182                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
183                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
184        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
185                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
186                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
187        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
188                avoid buffer overrun risks.
189        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
190                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
191        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
192                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
193                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
194        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
195        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
196                 replaced with the user's home directory.
197        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
198                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
199                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
200                 sane on admin messages.
201        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
202        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
203        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
204                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
205                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
206                 of the message being replied to.
207        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
208                 M-r --- edit reply to all
209                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
210        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
211        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
212        Added --no-move option to delete command.
213                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
214                be implemented with
215                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
216        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
217                one command which takes arguments.
218                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
219                '--skip-deleted' option, and
220                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
221                Help updated accordingly. 
222                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
223                for 'next personal'. 
224                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
225                to the next and prev commands.
226        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
227        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
228                narrowing, to make it more general.
229        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
230                based on the current message and returns the name
231                of the filter.
232        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
233                matching current" and "move to previous message
234                matching current"
235        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
236                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
237                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
238                depending on the current size of the window.
239                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
240                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
241        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
242                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
243                the proposed zpunt.
244        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
245        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
246        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
247                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
248                value of strings returned by owl commands.
249        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
250                view's filter. 
251        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
252        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
253                narrow and restore the view. 
254        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
255                color messages matching the current one green.
256        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
257        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
258        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
259                contexts, and keybindings.
260        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
261                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
262                of the output now.
263        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
264                and new show commands.
265        Show with arguments produces help on show.
266        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
267                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
268        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
269             returns the string and it will get printed if it
270             was run interactively.
273        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
274        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
275        'show terminal' / 'show term'
276        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now
277        implemented _followlast as an unsupported feature
278        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list
279        added help for 'zpunt' and 'zunpunt'
280        changed the bug address in the startup message
281        can now do 'show status'
282        can now do 'show version'
283        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
284        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
285        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
286        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
287        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
288        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
291        Fixed memory mishandling bug
292        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
293        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
294             MESSAGE messages
295        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
296            to class and instance
297        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
298        fixed typo in help
299        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

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

392              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
393              a string not ending in a newline
394        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
395              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
396              to "all"
397        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
398              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
399        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
400              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
401        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will
402              evaluate perl expressions.

404        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
405        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).

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

446        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
447              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
448              to put information about pings and logins into
449              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
450              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
451              for experimenting with what works well.)
452        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
453        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
456        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
457        don't return in owl_free
