source: ChangeLog @ 8ee73f8d

Last change on this file since 8ee73f8d was 8ee73f8d, checked in by Erik Nygren <>, 22 years ago
Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands. Added support for perl to call directly back into owl. Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately call back into owl. This allows perl to get the return value of strings returned by owl commands. Added the getview command which returns the name of the current view's filter. Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable. Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to narrow and restore the view. Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to color messages matching the current one green.

File size: 17.3 KB
5        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
6        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
7        Added --no-move option to delete command.
8                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
9                be implemented with
10                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
11        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
12                one command which takes arguments.
13                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
14                '--skip-deleted' option, and
15                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
16                Help updated accordingly. 
17                In particular, the 'personal' view is now used
18                for 'next personal'. 
19        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
20        Fixed the annoying pagedown sometimes-not-working bug.
21        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
22                narrowing, to make it more general.
23        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
24                based on the current message and returns the name
25                of the filter.
26        Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
27                to the next and prev commands.
28        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
29                matching current" and "move to previous message
30                matching current"
31        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
32                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
33                they get wrapped.  Default is 70 columns each.
34        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
35                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
36                the proposed zpunt.
37        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
38        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
39        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
40                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
41                value of strings returned by owl commands.
42        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
43                view's filter. 
44        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
45        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
46                narrow and restore the view. 
47        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
48                color messages matching the current one green.
51        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
52        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
53        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
54                contexts, and keybindings.
55        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
56                Switched the binding back to M-D.
57        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
58                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
59                of the output now.
62        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
63                and new show commands.
64        Show with arguments produces help on show.
65        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
66                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
69        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
70             returns the string and it will get printed if it
71             was run interactively.
74        *** NOTE: I probably missed some things here...
75        New framework for command handling.
76        New framework for keymap handling.
77        Added commands for everything that is bound
78             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).

80             to be specified on a line.             
81        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
82        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
83        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
84        Added additional options to delete command.
85        The reply command now takes arguments.
86        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.

90        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
91        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
92        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
93             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
94             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work

149        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
150              was overflowing and truncating the help message).

238              and the owl_dict type.
239              These include regression tests.
240        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
241              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
242              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
243              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
244              and for setting it to and from string values.
245              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
246              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
247              are generated from variable.c by
248              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
249              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
250        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
251              by variable overhaul.
252        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.

254              print "Undefined variable" in addition
255              to running owl_function_printallvars.
256        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
257        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
258        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
259        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
260               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
261               string with args).
262        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
263        Removed lots of build warnings.

271        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
272              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
273              to put information about pings and logins into
274              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
275              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
276              for experimenting with what works well.)
277        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
278        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
281        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
