viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg calculations
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 25.6 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
13        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
14        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
15        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
16             lock up.
17        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
18             match on this direction
19        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
20             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
21             'out'.
22        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
23        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
24             messages
25        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
26             long_zuser
27        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
28        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
29        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
32        Added the 'search' command.
33        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
34        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
35        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
36        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
37             and put it in functions.c
38        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
39             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
40             been in, the new current message position will attempt
41             to be close to the current position from the last
42             time we visited that view.
43        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
44        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
45        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
46        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
47        The new behavior of last is:
48              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
49              If we are already at the last message in the view,
50              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
51              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
52              of the screen.
53        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
54        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
57        New framework for command handling.
58        New framework for keymap handling.
59        Added commands for everything that is bound
60             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
61        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
62             to be specified on a line.             
63        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
64        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
65        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
66        Added additional options to delete command.
67        The reply command now takes arguments.
68        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
69        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
70        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
71        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
72        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
73        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
74        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
75             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
76             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
77             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
78        Bug in page down fixed
79        C-t will transpose characters
80        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
81             the screen down, leaving the current message off
82             the bottom of the screen.
83        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
84        Fixed M-u description
85        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
86        Added M-N to basic key help
87        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
88        Fixed a quoting problem in
89        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
90        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
91        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
92        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
93        Some buffer overruns fixed
94        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
95                Only the summary is shown with help.
96                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
97        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
98             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
99             identically to previous versions of owl.
100             The following modes are supported:
101             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
102                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
103                           keep the current message roughly near
104                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
105             top         - The current message will always be the
106                           the top message displayed.
107             neartop     - The current message will be one down
108                           from the top message displayed,
109                           where possible.
110             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
111                           message near the center of the screen.
112             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
113                           when user moves the cursor to the top
114                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
115                           the screen will be paged up or down and
116                           the cursor will be near the top or
117                           the bottom.
118             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
119                           when user moves the cursor to the top
120                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
121                           the screen will be paged up or down and
122                           the cursor will be near the center.
123        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
124                The caller must free this string.
125                This will allocate enough memory and thus
126                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
127        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
128                message as having been sent.)
129        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
130                now includes the name of the recipient.
131        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
132                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
133                end of the message.  This is now the default.
134                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
135        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
136        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
137                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
138        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
139        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
140                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
141                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
142                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
143                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
144        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
145                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
146                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
147        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
148                avoid buffer overrun risks.
149        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
150                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
151        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
152                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
153                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
154        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
155        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
156                 replaced with the user's home directory.
157        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
158                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
159                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
160                 sane on admin messages.
161        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
162        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
163        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
164                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
165                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
166                 of the message being replied to.
167        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
168                 M-r --- edit reply to all
169                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
170        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
171        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
172        Added --no-move option to delete command.
173                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
174                be implemented with
175                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
176        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
177                one command which takes arguments.
178                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
179                '--skip-deleted' option, and
180                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
181                Help updated accordingly. 
182                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
183                for 'next personal'. 
184                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
185                to the next and prev commands.
186        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
187        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
188                narrowing, to make it more general.
189        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
190                based on the current message and returns the name
191                of the filter.
192        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
193                matching current" and "move to previous message
194                matching current"
195        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
196                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
197                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
198                depending on the current size of the window.
199                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
200                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
201        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
202                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
203                the proposed zpunt.
204        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
205        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
206        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
207                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
208                value of strings returned by owl commands.
209        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
210                view's filter. 
211        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
212        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
213                narrow and restore the view. 
214        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
215                color messages matching the current one green.
216        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
217        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
218        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
219                contexts, and keybindings.
220        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
221                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
222                of the output now.
223        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
224                and new show commands.
225        Show with arguments produces help on show.
226        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
227                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
228        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
229             returns the string and it will get printed if it
230             was run interactively.
233        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
234        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

242        can now do 'show version'
243        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
244        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
245        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
246        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
247        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
248        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
251        Fixed memory mishandling bug
252        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
253        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
254             MESSAGE messages
255        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
256            to class and instance
257        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
258        fixed typo in help
259        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

272          color associated with it.
273        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

282              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
283        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
284        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
285              was overflowing and truncating the help message).

348        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
349        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
350        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
351              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
352              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
353              a string not ending in a newline
354        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
355              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
356              to "all"
357        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
358              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
359        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
360              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
361        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will
362              evaluate perl expressions.
363        Fixed bug where pclose zsigproc would cause zombies
364        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
365        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
366              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
367        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
368        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
369        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
370              and added regression testing framework to tester
371        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
372        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
373              and the owl_dict type.
374              These include regression tests.
375        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
376              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
377              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
378              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
379              and for setting it to and from string values.
380              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
381              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
382              are generated from variable.c by
