There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l' 'l' is bound to 'zlist'
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 25.4 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'
9        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
10        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
11        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
12             lock up.
13        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
14             match on this direction
15        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
16             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
17             'out'.
18        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
19        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
20             messages
21        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
22             long_zuser
23        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
24        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
25        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
28        Added the 'search' command.
29        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
30        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
31        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
32        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
33             and put it in functions.c
34        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
35             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
36             been in, the new current message position will attempt
37             to be close to the current position from the last
38             time we visited that view.
39        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
40        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
41        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
42        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
43        The new behavior of last is:
44              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
45              If we are already at the last message in the view,
46              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
47              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
48              of the screen.
49        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
50        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
53        New framework for command handling.
54        New framework for keymap handling.
55        Added commands for everything that is bound
56             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
57        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
58             to be specified on a line.             
59        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
60        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
61        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
62        Added additional options to delete command.
63        The reply command now takes arguments.
64        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
65        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
66        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
67        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
68        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
69        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
70        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
71             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
72             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
73             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
74        Bug in page down fixed
75        C-t will transpose characters
76        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
77             the screen down, leaving the current message off
78             the bottom of the screen.
79        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
80        Fixed M-u description
81        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
82        Added M-N to basic key help
83        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
84        Fixed a quoting problem in
85        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
86        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
87        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
88        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
89        Some buffer overruns fixed
90        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
91                Only the summary is shown with help.
92                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
93        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
94             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
95             identically to previous versions of owl.
96             The following modes are supported:
97             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
98                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
99                           keep the current message roughly near
100                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
101             top         - The current message will always be the
102                           the top message displayed.
103             neartop     - The current message will be one down
104                           from the top message displayed,
105                           where possible.
106             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
107                           message near the center of the screen.
108             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
109                           when user moves the cursor to the top
110                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
111                           the screen will be paged up or down and
112                           the cursor will be near the top or
113                           the bottom.
114             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
115                           when user moves the cursor to the top
116                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
117                           the screen will be paged up or down and
118                           the cursor will be near the center.
119        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
120                The caller must free this string.
121                This will allocate enough memory and thus
122                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
123        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
124                message as having been sent.)
125        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
126                now includes the name of the recipient.
127        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
128                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
129                end of the message.  This is now the default.
130                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
131        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
132        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
133                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
134        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
135        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
136                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
137                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
138                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
139                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
140        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
141                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
142                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
143        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
144                avoid buffer overrun risks.
145        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
146                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
147        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
148                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
149                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
150        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
151        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
152                 replaced with the user's home directory.
153        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
154                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
155                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
156                 sane on admin messages.
157        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
158        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
159        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
160                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
161                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
162                 of the message being replied to.
163        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
164                 M-r --- edit reply to all
165                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
166        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
167        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
168        Added --no-move option to delete command.
169                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
170                be implemented with
171                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
172        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
173                one command which takes arguments.
174                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
175                '--skip-deleted' option, and
176                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
177                Help updated accordingly. 
178                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
179                for 'next personal'. 
180                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
181                to the next and prev commands.
182        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
183        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
184                narrowing, to make it more general.
185        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
186                based on the current message and returns the name
187                of the filter.
188        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
189                matching current" and "move to previous message
190                matching current"
191        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
192                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
193                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
194                depending on the current size of the window.
195                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
196                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
197        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
198                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
199                the proposed zpunt.
200        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
201        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
202        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
203                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
204                value of strings returned by owl commands.
205        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
206                view's filter. 
207        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
208        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
209                narrow and restore the view. 
210        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
211                color messages matching the current one green.
212        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
213        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
214        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
215                contexts, and keybindings.
216        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
217                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
218                of the output now.
219        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
220                and new show commands.
221        Show with arguments produces help on show.
222        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
223                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
224        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
225             returns the string and it will get printed if it
226             was run interactively.
229        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
230        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
231        'show terminal' / 'show term'
232        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now

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

268          color associated with it.
269        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

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

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

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