2        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
3        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
4        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
5                contexts, and keybindings.
6        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
7                Switched the binding back to M-D.
8        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
9                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
10                of the output now.
13        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
14                and new show commands.
15        Show with arguments produces help on show.
16        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
17                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
20        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
21             returns the string and it will get printed if it
22             was run interactively.
25        *** NOTE: I probably missed some things here...
26        New framework for command handling.
27        New framework for keymap handling.
28        Added commands for everything that is bound
29             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).

31             to be specified on a line.             
32        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
33        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").

42        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
43        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
44             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.

46             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.

189              and the owl_dict type.

191        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
192              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
193              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
194              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
195              and for setting it to and from string values.
196              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
197              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
198              are generated from variable.c by

206              to running owl_function_printallvars.
207        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
208        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
209        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
210        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
211               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
212               string with args).
213        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
214        Removed lots of build warnings.

222        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
223              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
224              to put information about pings and logins into
225              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
226              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
227              for experimenting with what works well.)
228        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
229        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
