You can now use %me% in filters The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 25.7 KB
3        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
4             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
5        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
6        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
7        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
8        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
9        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
10          calculations
11        You can now use %me% in filters
12        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
15        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
16        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
17        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
18             lock up.
19        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
20             match on this direction
21        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
22             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
23             'out'.
24        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
25        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
26             messages
27        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
28             long_zuser
29        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
30        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
31        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
34        Added the 'search' command.
35        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
36        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
37        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
38        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
39             and put it in functions.c
40        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
41             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
42             been in, the new current message position will attempt
43             to be close to the current position from the last
44             time we visited that view.
45        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
46        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
47        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
48        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
49        The new behavior of last is:
50              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
51              If we are already at the last message in the view,
52              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
53              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
54              of the screen.
55        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
56        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
59        New framework for command handling.
60        New framework for keymap handling.
61        Added commands for everything that is bound
62             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
63        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
64             to be specified on a line.             
65        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
66        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
67        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
68        Added additional options to delete command.
69        The reply command now takes arguments.
70        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
71        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
72        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
73        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
74        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
75        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
76        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
77             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
78             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
79             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
80        Bug in page down fixed
81        C-t will transpose characters
82        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
83             the screen down, leaving the current message off
84             the bottom of the screen.
85        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
86        Fixed M-u description
87        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
88        Added M-N to basic key help
89        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
90        Fixed a quoting problem in
91        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
92        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
93        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
94        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
95        Some buffer overruns fixed
96        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
97                Only the summary is shown with help.
98                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
99        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
100             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
101             identically to previous versions of owl.
102             The following modes are supported:
103             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
104                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
105                           keep the current message roughly near
106                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
107             top         - The current message will always be the
108                           the top message displayed.
109             neartop     - The current message will be one down
110                           from the top message displayed,
111                           where possible.
112             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
113                           message near the center of the screen.
114             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
115                           when user moves the cursor to the top
116                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
117                           the screen will be paged up or down and
118                           the cursor will be near the top or
119                           the bottom.
120             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
121                           when user moves the cursor to the top
122                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
123                           the screen will be paged up or down and
124                           the cursor will be near the center.
125        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
126                The caller must free this string.
127                This will allocate enough memory and thus
128                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
129        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
130                message as having been sent.)
131        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
132                now includes the name of the recipient.
133        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
134                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
135                end of the message.  This is now the default.
136                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
137        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
138        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
139                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
140        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
141        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
142                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
143                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
144                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
145                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
146        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
147                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
148                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
149        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
150                avoid buffer overrun risks.
151        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
152                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
153        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
154                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
155                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
156        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
157        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
158                 replaced with the user's home directory.
159        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
160                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
161                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
162                 sane on admin messages.
163        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
164        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
165        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
166                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
167                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
168                 of the message being replied to.
169        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
170                 M-r --- edit reply to all
171                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
172        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
173        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
174        Added --no-move option to delete command.
175                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
176                be implemented with
177                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
178        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
179                one command which takes arguments.
180                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
181                '--skip-deleted' option, and
182                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
183                Help updated accordingly. 
184                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
185                for 'next personal'. 
186                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
187                to the next and prev commands.
188        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
189        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
190                narrowing, to make it more general.
191        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
192                based on the current message and returns the name
193                of the filter.
194        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
195                matching current" and "move to previous message
196                matching current"
197        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
198                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
199                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
200                depending on the current size of the window.
201                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
202                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
203        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
204                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
205                the proposed zpunt.
206        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
207        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
208        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
209                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
210                value of strings returned by owl commands.
211        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
212                view's filter. 
213        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
214        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
215                narrow and restore the view. 
216        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
217                color messages matching the current one green.
218        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
219        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
220        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
221                contexts, and keybindings.
222        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
223                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
224                of the output now.
225        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
226                and new show commands.
227        Show with arguments produces help on show.
228        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
229                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
230        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
231             returns the string and it will get printed if it
232             was run interactively.
235        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
236        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
237        'show terminal' / 'show term'
238        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now

240        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list
241        added help for 'zpunt' and 'zunpunt'
242        changed the bug address in the startup message
243        can now do 'show status'
244        can now do 'show version'
245        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
246        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
247        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
248        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
249        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
250        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
253        Fixed memory mishandling bug
254        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
255        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
256             MESSAGE messages
257        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
258            to class and instance
259        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
260        fixed typo in help
261        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

272          incoming messages
273        If colors are available 'show filters' will show a filter in the
274          color associated with it.
275        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

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

284              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
285        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
286        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
287              was overflowing and truncating the help message).

350        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
351        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
352        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
353              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
354              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
355              a string not ending in a newline
356        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
357              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
358              to "all"
359        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
360              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
361        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
362              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
363        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will

366        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
367        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
368              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
369        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
370        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
371        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
372              and added regression testing framework to tester
373        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
374        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
375              and the owl_dict type.
376              These include regression tests.
377        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
378              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
379              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
380              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
381              and for setting it to and from string values.
382              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
383              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
