10        The simple user format for "To:" is in effect again
11        Prettyed up the zwrite line for using 'reply' on a zaway
12        Added a workaround for a libzephyr bug that caused zwrites to fail

19        Started implementing zcrypt command
20        More updates to the intro doc
23        Started adding code for newmsgproc.  It doesn't fully work yet!
24          Don't use it.
25        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
26        Will attempt to keep the current message as close as possible
27             to the previous current message after an expunge.
28        "set <variable>" and "unset <variable>" now work for boolean variables.
29        Fixed a bug in owl_function_calculate_topmsg_normal that caused a
30          segfault
31        Fixed some typos in the intro doc
32        Removed old zlog functions from zephyr.c
33        Implemented the dump command
34        New startup message

41        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
42        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
45        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
46             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
47        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'

54        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
55        Fixed a bug in moving the pointer after an expunge
56        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always

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

301        can now do 'show version'
302        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
303        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
304        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
305        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
306        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
307        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
310        Fixed memory mishandling bug
311        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
312        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
313             MESSAGE messages
314        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
315            to class and instance
316        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
317        fixed typo in help
318        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

331          color associated with it.
332        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

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

341              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
342        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
343        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
344              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
345        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
346              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

401        zsig variable overrides zsigproc
402        If there's no appendtosepbar don't interfear with the sepbar
403        Changed: owl_message_get_numlines will return 0 of m is NULL
404        Added login messages to messages marked by owl_function_delete_automsgs
405        Added owl_function_delete_by_id(id) which acts independent of view
406        Added "-id <id>" option to delete command
407        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
408        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
409        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
410              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
411              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
412              a string not ending in a newline
413        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
414              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
415              to "all"
416        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
417              owl_config_execute now returns a string.

419              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)

429              and added regression testing framework to tester
430        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
431        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
432              and the owl_dict type.
433              These include regression tests.
434        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
435              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
436              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
437              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
438              and for setting it to and from string values.
439              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
440              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
441              are generated from variable.c by
442              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
443              so all information about most variables is in one place.

445              by variable overhaul.
446        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.

448              print "Undefined variable" in addition
449              to running owl_function_printallvars.
450        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
451        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
452        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
453        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
454               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
455               string with args).
456        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
457        Removed lots of build warnings.

465        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
466              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
467              to put information about pings and logins into
468              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
469              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
470              for experimenting with what works well.)
471        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
472        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
