Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 26.8 KB
3        Started adding code for newmsgproc.  It doesn't fully work yet!
4          Don't use it.
5        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
8        Patch to fix memory bug in replying to CC messages
9        If we're on Athena and have static krb (or other) libraries, use
10          them
11        Added "athstatic" program to the release, which handles the above
12        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
13        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
16        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
17             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
18        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
19        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
20        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
21        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
22        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
23          calculations
24        You can now use %me% in filters
25        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
26        Fixed a bug in moving the poiner after an expunge
27        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
28          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
29        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
30          instances out for the 'reply' command.
31        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
32        Started updating the intro document
33        Small changes to help / about
34        The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) now
35          update .zephyr.subs by default.  If either is given the '-t'
36          (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
37        Turned off beeping for hitting the top or bottom of the list of
38          messages
39        Made daemon.webzephyr a special case for smartstrip
40        Added 'out' as a default filter for outgoing messages
43        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
44        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
45        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
46             lock up.
47        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
48             match on this direction
49        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
50             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
51             'out'.
52        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
53        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
54             messages
55        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
56             long_zuser
57        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
58        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
59        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
62        Added the 'search' command.
63        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
64        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
65        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
66        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
67             and put it in functions.c
68        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
69             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
70             been in, the new current message position will attempt
71             to be close to the current position from the last
72             time we visited that view.
73        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
74        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
75        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
76        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
77        The new behavior of last is:
78              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
79              If we are already at the last message in the view,
80              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
81              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
82              of the screen.
83        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
84        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
87        New framework for command handling.
88        New framework for keymap handling.
89        Added commands for everything that is bound
90             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
91        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
92             to be specified on a line.             
93        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
94        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
95        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
96        Added additional options to delete command.
97        The reply command now takes arguments.
98        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
99        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
100        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
101        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
102        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
103        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
104        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
105             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
106             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
107             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
108        Bug in page down fixed
109        C-t will transpose characters
110        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
111             the screen down, leaving the current message off
112             the bottom of the screen.
113        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
114        Fixed M-u description
115        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
116        Added M-N to basic key help
117        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
118        Fixed a quoting problem in
119        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
120        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
121        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
122        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
123        Some buffer overruns fixed
124        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
125                Only the summary is shown with help.
126                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
127        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
128             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
129             identically to previous versions of owl.
130             The following modes are supported:
131             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
132                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
133                           keep the current message roughly near
134                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
135             top         - The current message will always be the
136                           the top message displayed.
137             neartop     - The current message will be one down
138                           from the top message displayed,
139                           where possible.
140             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
141                           message near the center of the screen.
142             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
143                           when user moves the cursor to the top
144                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
145                           the screen will be paged up or down and
146                           the cursor will be near the top or
147                           the bottom.
148             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
149                           when user moves the cursor to the top
150                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
151                           the screen will be paged up or down and
152                           the cursor will be near the center.
153        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
154                The caller must free this string.
155                This will allocate enough memory and thus
156                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
157        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
158                message as having been sent.)
159        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
160                now includes the name of the recipient.
161        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
162                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
163                end of the message.  This is now the default.
164                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
165        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
166        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
167                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
168        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
169        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
170                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
171                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
172                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
173                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
174        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
175                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
176                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
177        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
178                avoid buffer overrun risks.
179        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
180                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
181        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
182                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
183                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
184        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
185        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
186                 replaced with the user's home directory.
187        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
188                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
189                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
190                 sane on admin messages.
191        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
192        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
193        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
194                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
195                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
196                 of the message being replied to.
197        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
198                 M-r --- edit reply to all
199                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
200        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
201        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
202        Added --no-move option to delete command.
203                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
204                be implemented with
205                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
206        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
207                one command which takes arguments.
208                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
209                '--skip-deleted' option, and
210                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
211                Help updated accordingly. 
212                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
213                for 'next personal'. 
214                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
215                to the next and prev commands.
216        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
217        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
218                narrowing, to make it more general.
219        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
220                based on the current message and returns the name
221                of the filter.
222        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
223                matching current" and "move to previous message
224                matching current"
225        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
226                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
227                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
228                depending on the current size of the window.
229                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
230                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
231        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
232                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
233                the proposed zpunt.
234        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
235        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
236        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
237                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
238                value of strings returned by owl commands.
239        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
240                view's filter. 
241        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
242        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
243                narrow and restore the view. 
244        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
245                color messages matching the current one green.
246        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
247        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
248        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
249                contexts, and keybindings.
250        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
251                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
252                of the output now.
253        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
254                and new show commands.
255        Show with arguments produces help on show.
256        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
257                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
258        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
259             returns the string and it will get printed if it
260             was run interactively.
263        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
264        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
265        'show terminal' / 'show term'
266        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now
267        implemented _followlast as an unsupported feature
268        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list
269        added help for 'zpunt' and 'zunpunt'
270        changed the bug address in the startup message
271        can now do 'show status'
272        can now do 'show version'
273        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
274        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
275        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
276        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
277        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
278        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
281        Fixed memory mishandling bug
282        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
283        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
284             MESSAGE messages
285        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
286            to class and instance
287        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
288        fixed typo in help
289        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support
290        zephyr @ formatting is now case independant
291        added support for color terminals

302          color associated with it.
303        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

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

312              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
313        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
314        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
315              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
316        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
317              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

383              a string not ending in a newline
384        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to

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

436        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
437              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
438              to put information about pings and logins into
439              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
440              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
441              for experimenting with what works well.)
442        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
443        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
