Last change on this file since 61e79a9 was 61e79a9, checked in by James M. Kretchmar <>, 22 years ago
The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 25.2 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
18        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
19        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
20        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
23        Added the 'search' command.
24        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
25        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
26        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
27        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
28             and put it in functions.c
29        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
30             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
31             been in, the new current message position will attempt
32             to be close to the current position from the last
33             time we visited that view.
34        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
35        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
36        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
37        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
38        The new behavior of last is:
39              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
40              If we are already at the last message in the view,
41              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
42              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
43              of the screen.
44        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
45        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
48        New framework for command handling.
49        New framework for keymap handling.
50        Added commands for everything that is bound
51             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
52        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
53             to be specified on a line.             
54        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
55        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
56        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
57        Added additional options to delete command.
58        The reply command now takes arguments.
59        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
60        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
61        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
62        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
63        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
64        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
65        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
66             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
67             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
68             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
69        Bug in page down fixed
70        C-t will transpose characters
71        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
72             the screen down, leaving the current message off
73             the bottom of the screen.
74        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
75        Fixed M-u description
76        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
77        Added M-N to basic key help
78        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
79        Fixed a quoting problem in
80        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
81        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
82        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
83        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
84        Some buffer overruns fixed
85        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
86                Only the summary is shown with help.
87                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
88        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
89             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
90             identically to previous versions of owl.
91             The following modes are supported:
92             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
93                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
94                           keep the current message roughly near
95                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
96             top         - The current message will always be the
97                           the top message displayed.
98             neartop     - The current message will be one down
99                           from the top message displayed,
100                           where possible.
101             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
102                           message near the center of the screen.
103             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
104                           when user moves the cursor to the top
105                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
106                           the screen will be paged up or down and
107                           the cursor will be near the top or
108                           the bottom.
109             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
110                           when user moves the cursor to the top
111                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
112                           the screen will be paged up or down and
113                           the cursor will be near the center.
114        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
115                The caller must free this string.
116                This will allocate enough memory and thus
117                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
118        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
119                message as having been sent.)
120        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
121                now includes the name of the recipient.
122        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
123                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
124                end of the message.  This is now the default.
125                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
126        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
127        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
128                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
129        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
130        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
131                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
132                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
133                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
134                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
135        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
136                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
137                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
138        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
139                avoid buffer overrun risks.
140        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
141                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
142        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
143                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
144                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
145        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
146        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
147                 replaced with the user's home directory.
148        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
149                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
150                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
151                 sane on admin messages.
152        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
153        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
154        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
155                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
156                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
157                 of the message being replied to.
158        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
159                 M-r --- edit reply to all
160                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
161        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
162        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
163        Added --no-move option to delete command.
164                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
165                be implemented with
166                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
167        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
168                one command which takes arguments.
169                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
170                '--skip-deleted' option, and
171                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
172                Help updated accordingly. 
173                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
174                for 'next personal'. 
175                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
176                to the next and prev commands.
177        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
178        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
179                narrowing, to make it more general.
180        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
181                based on the current message and returns the name
182                of the filter.
183        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
184                matching current" and "move to previous message
185                matching current"
186        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
187                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
188                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
189                depending on the current size of the window.
190                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
191                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
192        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
193                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
194                the proposed zpunt.
195        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
196        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
197        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
198                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
199                value of strings returned by owl commands.
200        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
201                view's filter. 
202        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
203        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
204                narrow and restore the view. 
205        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
206                color messages matching the current one green.
207        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
208        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
209        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
210                contexts, and keybindings.
211        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
212                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
213                of the output now.
214        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
215                and new show commands.
216        Show with arguments produces help on show.
217        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
218                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
219        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
220             returns the string and it will get printed if it
221             was run interactively.
224        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
225        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

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

263          color associated with it.
264        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
265        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
266        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
267        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
270        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
271              and spaces in a saner manner.
272        Removed all owl_get_* methods for booleans and switched
273              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
274        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
275        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
276              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
277        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
278              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

339        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
340        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id

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

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