File size: 25.3 KB
3        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
4             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
7        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
8        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
9        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
10             lock up.
11        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
12             match on this direction
13        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
14             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
15             'out'.
16        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
17        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
18             messages
19        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
20             long_zuser
21        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
22        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
23        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
26        Added the 'search' command.
27        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
28        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
29        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
30        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
31             and put it in functions.c
32        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
33             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
34             been in, the new current message position will attempt
35             to be close to the current position from the last
36             time we visited that view.
37        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
38        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
39        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
40        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
41        The new behavior of last is:
42              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
43              If we are already at the last message in the view,
44              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
45              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
46              of the screen.
47        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
48        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
51        New framework for command handling.
52        New framework for keymap handling.
53        Added commands for everything that is bound
54             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
55        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
56             to be specified on a line.             
57        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
58        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
59        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
60        Added additional options to delete command.
61        The reply command now takes arguments.
62        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
63        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
64        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
65        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
66        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
67        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
68        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
69             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
70             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
71             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
72        Bug in page down fixed
73        C-t will transpose characters
74        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
75             the screen down, leaving the current message off
76             the bottom of the screen.
77        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
78        Fixed M-u description
79        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
80        Added M-N to basic key help
81        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
82        Fixed a quoting problem in
83        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
84        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
85        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
86        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
87        Some buffer overruns fixed
88        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
89                Only the summary is shown with help.
90                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
91        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
92             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
93             identically to previous versions of owl.
94             The following modes are supported:
95             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
96                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
97                           keep the current message roughly near
98                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
99             top         - The current message will always be the
100                           the top message displayed.
101             neartop     - The current message will be one down
102                           from the top message displayed,
103                           where possible.
104             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
105                           message near the center of the screen.
106             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
107                           when user moves the cursor to the top
108                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
109                           the screen will be paged up or down and
110                           the cursor will be near the top or
111                           the bottom.
112             pagedcenter - 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 center.
117        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
118                The caller must free this string.
119                This will allocate enough memory and thus
120                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
121        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
122                message as having been sent.)
123        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
124                now includes the name of the recipient.
125        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
126                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
127                end of the message.  This is now the default.
128                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
129        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
130        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
131                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
132        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
133        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
134                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
135                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
136                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
137                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
138        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
139                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
140                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
141        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
142                avoid buffer overrun risks.
143        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
144                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
145        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
146                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
147                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
148        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
149        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
150                 replaced with the user's home directory.
151        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
152                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
153                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
154                 sane on admin messages.
155        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
156        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
157        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
158                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
159                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
160                 of the message being replied to.
161        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
162                 M-r --- edit reply to all
163                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
164        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
165        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
166        Added --no-move option to delete command.
167                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
168                be implemented with
169                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
170        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
171                one command which takes arguments.
172                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
173                '--skip-deleted' option, and
174                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
175                Help updated accordingly. 
176                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
177                for 'next personal'. 
178                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
179                to the next and prev commands.
180        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
181        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
182                narrowing, to make it more general.
183        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
184                based on the current message and returns the name
185                of the filter.
186        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
187                matching current" and "move to previous message
188                matching current"
189        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
190                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
191                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
192                depending on the current size of the window.
193                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
194                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
195        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
196                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
197                the proposed zpunt.
198        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
199        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
200        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
201                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
202                value of strings returned by owl commands.
203        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
204                view's filter. 
205        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
206        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
207                narrow and restore the view. 
208        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
209                color messages matching the current one green.
210        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
211        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
212        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
213                contexts, and keybindings.
214        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
215                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
216                of the output now.
217        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
218                and new show commands.
219        Show with arguments produces help on show.
220        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
221                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
222        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
223             returns the string and it will get printed if it
224             was run interactively.
227        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
228        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
229        'show terminal' / 'show term'
230        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now

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

266          color associated with it.
267        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

269        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
270        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
273        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
274              and spaces in a saner manner.

276              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
277        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
278        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
279              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
280        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
281              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

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