Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none). Filters can this direction Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction 'out'. Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages 'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing messages Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to long_zuser
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 25.1 KB
4        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
5        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
6        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
7             lock up.
8        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
9             this direction
10        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
11             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
12             'out'.
13        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
14        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
15             messages
16        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
17             long_zuser
20        Added the 'search' command.
21        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
22        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
23        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
24        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
25             and put it in functions.c
26        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
27             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
28             been in, the new current message position will attempt
29             to be close to the current position from the last
30             time we visited that view.
31        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
32        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
33        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
34        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
35        The new behavior of last is:
36              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
37              If we are already at the last message in the view,
38              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
39              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
40              of the screen.
41        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
42        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
45        New framework for command handling.
46        New framework for keymap handling.
47        Added commands for everything that is bound
48             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
49        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
50             to be specified on a line.             
51        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
52        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
53        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
54        Added additional options to delete command.
55        The reply command now takes arguments.
56        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
57        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
58        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
59        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
60        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
61        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
62        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
63             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
64             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
65             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
66        Bug in page down fixed
67        C-t will transpose characters
68        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
69             the screen down, leaving the current message off
70             the bottom of the screen.
71        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
72        Fixed M-u description
73        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
74        Added M-N to basic key help
75        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
76        Fixed a quoting problem in
77        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
78        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
79        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
80        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
81        Some buffer overruns fixed
82        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
83                Only the summary is shown with help.
84                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
85        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
86             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
87             identically to previous versions of owl.
88             The following modes are supported:
89             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
90                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
91                           keep the current message roughly near
92                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
93             top         - The current message will always be the
94                           the top message displayed.
95             neartop     - The current message will be one down
96                           from the top message displayed,
97                           where possible.
98             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
99                           message near the center of the screen.
100             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
101                           when user moves the cursor to the top
102                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
103                           the screen will be paged up or down and
104                           the cursor will be near the top or
105                           the bottom.
106             pagedcenter - 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 center.
111        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
112                The caller must free this string.
113                This will allocate enough memory and thus
114                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
115        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
116                message as having been sent.)
117        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
118                now includes the name of the recipient.
119        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
120                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
121                end of the message.  This is now the default.
122                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
123        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
124        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
125                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
126        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
127        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
128                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
129                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
130                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
131                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
132        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
133                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
134                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
135        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
136                avoid buffer overrun risks.
137        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
138                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
139        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
140                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
141                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
142        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
143        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
144                 replaced with the user's home directory.
145        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
146                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
147                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
148                 sane on admin messages.
149        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
150        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
151        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
152                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
153                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
154                 of the message being replied to.
155        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
156                 M-r --- edit reply to all
157                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
158        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
159        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
160        Added --no-move option to delete command.
161                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
162                be implemented with
163                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
164        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
165                one command which takes arguments.
166                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
167                '--skip-deleted' option, and
168                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
169                Help updated accordingly. 
170                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
171                for 'next personal'. 
172                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
173                to the next and prev commands.
174        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
175        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
176                narrowing, to make it more general.
177        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
178                based on the current message and returns the name
179                of the filter.
180        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
181                matching current" and "move to previous message
182                matching current"
183        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
184                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
185                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
186                depending on the current size of the window.
187                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
188                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
189        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
190                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
191                the proposed zpunt.
192        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
193        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
194        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
195                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
196                value of strings returned by owl commands.
197        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
198                view's filter. 
199        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
200        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
201                narrow and restore the view. 
202        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
203                color messages matching the current one green.
204        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
205        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
206        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
207                contexts, and keybindings.
208        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
209                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
210                of the output now.
211        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
212                and new show commands.
213        Show with arguments produces help on show.
214        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
215                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
216        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
217             returns the string and it will get printed if it
218             was run interactively.
221        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
222        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

232        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
233        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin

235        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
236        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
239        Fixed memory mishandling bug
240        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
241        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
242             MESSAGE messages
243        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
244            to class and instance
245        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
246        fixed typo in help
247        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

267        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
268              and spaces in a saner manner.

272        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
273              was overflowing and truncating the help message).

339              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
340              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
341              a string not ending in a newline
342        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
343              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
344              to "all"
345        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
346              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
347        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
348              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
349        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will

352        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
353        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
354              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
355        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
356        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
357        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
358              and added regression testing framework to tester
359        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
360        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
361              and the owl_dict type.
362              These include regression tests.
363        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
364              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
365              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
366              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
367              and for setting it to and from string values.
368              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
369              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
370              are generated from variable.c by
371              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
372              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
373        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
374              by variable overhaul.
375        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
376        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
377              print "Undefined variable" in addition
