  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 24.5 KB
4        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
7        Added the 'search' command.
8        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
9        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
10        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
11        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
12             and put it in functions.c
13        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
14             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
15             been in, the new current message position will attempt
16             to be close to the current position from the last
17             time we visited that view.
18        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
19        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
20        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
21        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
22        The new behavior of last is:
23              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
24              If we are already at the last message in the view,
25              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
26              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
27              of the screen.
28        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
29        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
32        New framework for command handling.
33        New framework for keymap handling.
34        Added commands for everything that is bound
35             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
36        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
37             to be specified on a line.             
38        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
39        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
40        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
41        Added additional options to delete command.
42        The reply command now takes arguments.
43        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
44        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
45        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
46        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
47        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
48        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
49        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
50             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
51             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
52             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
53        Bug in page down fixed
54        C-t will transpose characters
55        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
56             the screen down, leaving the current message off
57             the bottom of the screen.
58        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
59        Fixed M-u description
60        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
61        Added M-N to basic key help
62        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
63        Fixed a quoting problem in
64        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
65        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
66        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
67        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
68        Some buffer overruns fixed
69        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
70                Only the summary is shown with help.
71                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
72        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
73             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
74             identically to previous versions of owl.
75             The following modes are supported:
76             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
77                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
78                           keep the current message roughly near
79                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
80             top         - The current message will always be the
81                           the top message displayed.
82             neartop     - The current message will be one down
83                           from the top message displayed,
84                           where possible.
85             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
86                           message near the center of the screen.
87             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
88                           when user moves the cursor to the top
89                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
90                           the screen will be paged up or down and
91                           the cursor will be near the top or
92                           the bottom.
93             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
94                           when user moves the cursor to the top
95                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
96                           the screen will be paged up or down and
97                           the cursor will be near the center.
98        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
99                The caller must free this string.
100                This will allocate enough memory and thus
101                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
102        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
103                message as having been sent.)
104        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
105                now includes the name of the recipient.
106        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
107                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
108                end of the message.  This is now the default.
109                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
110        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
111        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
112                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
113        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
114        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
115                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
116                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
117                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
118                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
119        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
120                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
121                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
122        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
123                avoid buffer overrun risks.
124        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
125                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
126        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
127                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
128                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
129        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
130        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
131                 replaced with the user's home directory.
132        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
133                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
134                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
135                 sane on admin messages.
136        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
137        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
138        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
139                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
140                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
141                 of the message being replied to.
142        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
143                 M-r --- edit reply to all
144                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
145        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
146        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
147        Added --no-move option to delete command.
148                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
149                be implemented with
150                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
151        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
152                one command which takes arguments.
153                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
154                '--skip-deleted' option, and
155                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
156                Help updated accordingly. 
157                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
158                for 'next personal'. 
159                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
160                to the next and prev commands.
161        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
162        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
163                narrowing, to make it more general.
164        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
165                based on the current message and returns the name
166                of the filter.
167        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
168                matching current" and "move to previous message
169                matching current"
170        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
171                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
172                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
173                depending on the current size of the window.
174                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
175                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
176        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
177                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
178                the proposed zpunt.
179        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
180        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
181        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
182                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
183                value of strings returned by owl commands.
184        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
185                view's filter. 
186        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
187        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
188                narrow and restore the view. 
189        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
190                color messages matching the current one green.
191        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
192        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
193        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
194                contexts, and keybindings.
195        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
196                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
197                of the output now.
198        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
199                and new show commands.
200        Show with arguments produces help on show.
201        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
202                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
203        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
204             returns the string and it will get printed if it
205             was run interactively.
208        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
209        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

219        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
220        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
221        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
222        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
223        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
226        Fixed memory mishandling bug
227        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
228        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
229             MESSAGE messages
230        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
231            to class and instance
232        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
233        fixed typo in help
234        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

247          color associated with it.
248        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

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

257              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
258        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
259        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
260              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
261        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
262              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

327              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
328              a string not ending in a newline
329        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
330              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
331              to "all"
332        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
333              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
334        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
335              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
336        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will

339        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
340        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
341              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
342        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
343        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
344        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
345              and added regression testing framework to tester
346        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
347        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
348              and the owl_dict type.
349              These include regression tests.
350        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
351              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
352              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
353              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
354              and for setting it to and from string values.
355              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
356              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
357              are generated from variable.c by
358              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
359              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
360        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
361              by variable overhaul.
362        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
363        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
364              print "Undefined variable" in addition
365              to running owl_function_printallvars.
366        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
367        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
368        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
369        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
370               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
371               string with args).
372        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
373        Removed lots of build warnings.
374        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
375        Added an atokenize_free function.
376        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.
377        Added dependencies on header files to
378        Added pageup and pagedown key bindings to message list
379        Added pageup and pagedown to viewwin
380        Added configfile section to doc/intro.txt (from example config file)
