Changed the version number to 1.2.1 and consolidated the ChangeLog.
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 23.3 KB
4        New framework for command handling.
5        New framework for keymap handling.
6        Added commands for everything that is bound
7             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
8        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
9             to be specified on a line.             
10        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
11        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
12        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
13        Added additional options to delete command.
14        The reply command now takes arguments.
15        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
16        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
17        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
18        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
19        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
20        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
21        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
22             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
23             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
24             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
25        Bug in page down fixed
26        C-t will transpose characters
27        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
28             the screen down, leaving the current message off
29             the bottom of the screen.
30        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
31        Fixed M-u description
32        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
33        Added M-N to basic key help
34        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
35        Fixed a quoting problem in
36        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
37        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
38        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
39        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
40        Some buffer overruns fixed
41        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
42                Only the summary is shown with help.
43                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
44        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
45             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
46             identically to previous versions of owl.
47             The following modes are supported:
48             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
49                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
50                           keep the current message roughly near
51                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
52             top         - The current message will always be the
53                           the top message displayed.
54             neartop     - The current message will be one down
55                           from the top message displayed,
56                           where possible.
57             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
58                           message near the center of the screen.
59             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
60                           when user moves the cursor to the top
61                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
62                           the screen will be paged up or down and
63                           the cursor will be near the top or
64                           the bottom.
65             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
66                           when user moves the cursor to the top
67                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
68                           the screen will be paged up or down and
69                           the cursor will be near the center.
70        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
71                The caller must free this string.
72                This will allocate enough memory and thus
73                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
74        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
75                message as having been sent.)
76        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
77                now includes the name of the recipient.
78        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
79                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
80                end of the message.  This is now the default.
81                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
82        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
83        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
84                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
85        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
86        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
87                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
88                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
89                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
90                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
91        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
92                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
93                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
94        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
95                avoid buffer overrun risks.
96        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
97                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
98        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
99                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
100                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
101        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
102        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
103                 replaced with the user's home directory.
104        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
105                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
106                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
107                 sane on admin messages.
108        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
109        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
110        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
111                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
112                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
113                 of the message being replied to.
114        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
115                 M-r --- edit reply to all
116                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
117        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
118        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
119        Added --no-move option to delete command.
120                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
121                be implemented with
122                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
123        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
124                one command which takes arguments.
125                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
126                '--skip-deleted' option, and
127                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
128                Help updated accordingly. 
129                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
130                for 'next personal'. 
131                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
132                to the next and prev commands.
133        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
134        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
135                narrowing, to make it more general.
136        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
137                based on the current message and returns the name
138                of the filter.
139        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
140                matching current" and "move to previous message
141                matching current"
142        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
143                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
144                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
145                depending on the current size of the window.
146                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
147                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
148        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
149                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
150                the proposed zpunt.
151        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
152        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
153        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
154                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
155                value of strings returned by owl commands.
156        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
157                view's filter. 
158        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
159        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
160                narrow and restore the view. 
161        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
162                color messages matching the current one green.
163        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
164        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
165        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
166                contexts, and keybindings.
167        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
168                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
169                of the output now.
170        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
171                and new show commands.
172        Show with arguments produces help on show.
173        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
174                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
175        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
176             returns the string and it will get printed if it
177             was run interactively.
180        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
181        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

191        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
192        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
193        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
194        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
195        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
198        Fixed memory mishandling bug
199        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
200        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
201             MESSAGE messages
202        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
203            to class and instance
204        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
205        fixed typo in help
206        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support
207        zephyr @ formatting is now case independant
208        added support for color terminals

219          color associated with it.
220        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

226        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
227              and spaces in a saner manner.

229              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
230        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
231        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
232              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
233        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
234              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

299              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
300              a string not ending in a newline
301        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
302              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
303              to "all"
304        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
305              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
306        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
307              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)

316        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
317              and added regression testing framework to tester
318        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
319        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
320              and the owl_dict type.
321              These include regression tests.
322        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
323              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
324              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
325              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
326              and for setting it to and from string values.
327              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
328              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
329              are generated from variable.c by
330              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
331              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
332        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
333              by variable overhaul.
334        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
335        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
336              print "Undefined variable" in addition
337              to running owl_function_printallvars.
338        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
339        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
340        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
341        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
342               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
343               string with args).
344        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
345        Removed lots of build warnings.
346        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
347        Added an atokenize_free function.
348        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.
349        Added dependencies on header files to
350        Added pageup and pagedown key bindings to message list
351        Added pageup and pagedown to viewwin
352        Added configfile section to doc/intro.txt (from example config file)
353        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
354              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
355              to put information about pings and logins into
356              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
357              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
358              for experimenting with what works well.)
359        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
360        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
363        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
364        don't return in owl_free
367        'print' and 'set' with no arguments prints all variables
368        Added the 'unsubscribe' and 'unsub' command
369        Renamed the 'unsub' command to 'unsuball'
370        Added the 'getsubs' command which is like zctl ret
371        Fixed bug in logging messages sent to more than one recipient
372        Support '-C', '-O', and '-n' options to zwrite
373        Fixed bug in owl_editwin_delete_char when there are no later chars
374          after the cursor
375        Make "more" and "truncated" work in the status bar
376        enable printing of zsigproc and loginsubs variables
377        only allow message scrolling if the message is actually off the
378          screen
379        'T' will mark all automated message for deletion
380        'P' will go to the next personal message
381        'M-P' will go to the previous personal message
382        replying to a login message goes to the user now
