Changed getsubs to print subs in the order you get them in.
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 24.0 KB
4        Added the 'search' command.
5        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
6        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
7        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
8        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
9             and put it in functions.c
10        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
11             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
12             been in, the new current message position will attempt
13             to be close to the current position from the last
14             time we visited that view.
15        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
16        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
17        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
20        New framework for command handling.
21        New framework for keymap handling.
22        Added commands for everything that is bound
23             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
24        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
25             to be specified on a line.             
26        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
27        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
28        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
29        Added additional options to delete command.
30        The reply command now takes arguments.
31        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
32        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
33        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
34        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
35        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
36        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
37        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
38             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
39             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
40             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
41        Bug in page down fixed
42        C-t will transpose characters
43        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
44             the screen down, leaving the current message off
45             the bottom of the screen.
46        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
47        Fixed M-u description
48        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
49        Added M-N to basic key help
50        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
51        Fixed a quoting problem in
52        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
53        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
54        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
55        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
56        Some buffer overruns fixed
57        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
58                Only the summary is shown with help.
59                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
60        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
61             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
62             identically to previous versions of owl.
63             The following modes are supported:
64             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
65                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
66                           keep the current message roughly near
67                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
68             top         - The current message will always be the
69                           the top message displayed.
70             neartop     - The current message will be one down
71                           from the top message displayed,
72                           where possible.
73             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
74                           message near the center of the screen.
75             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
76                           when user moves the cursor to the top
77                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
78                           the screen will be paged up or down and
79                           the cursor will be near the top or
80                           the bottom.
81             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
82                           when user moves the cursor to the top
83                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
84                           the screen will be paged up or down and
85                           the cursor will be near the center.
86        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
87                The caller must free this string.
88                This will allocate enough memory and thus
89                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
90        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
91                message as having been sent.)
92        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
93                now includes the name of the recipient.
94        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
95                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
96                end of the message.  This is now the default.
97                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
98        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
99        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
100                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
101        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
102        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
103                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
104                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
105                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
106                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
107        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
108                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
109                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
110        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
111                avoid buffer overrun risks.
112        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
113                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
114        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
115                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
116                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
117        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
118        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
119                 replaced with the user's home directory.
120        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
121                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
122                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
123                 sane on admin messages.
124        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
125        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
126        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
127                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
128                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
129                 of the message being replied to.
130        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
131                 M-r --- edit reply to all
132                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
133        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
134        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
135        Added --no-move option to delete command.
136                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
137                be implemented with
138                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
139        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
140                one command which takes arguments.
141                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
142                '--skip-deleted' option, and
143                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
144                Help updated accordingly. 
145                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
146                for 'next personal'. 
147                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
148                to the next and prev commands.
149        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
150        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
151                narrowing, to make it more general.
152        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
153                based on the current message and returns the name
154                of the filter.
155        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
156                matching current" and "move to previous message
157                matching current"
158        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
159                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
160                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
161                depending on the current size of the window.
162                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
163                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
164        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
165                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
166                the proposed zpunt.
167        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
168        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
169        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
170                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
171                value of strings returned by owl commands.
172        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
173                view's filter. 
174        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
175        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
176                narrow and restore the view. 
177        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
178                color messages matching the current one green.
179        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
180        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
181        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
182                contexts, and keybindings.
183        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
184                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
185                of the output now.
186        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
187                and new show commands.
188        Show with arguments produces help on show.
189        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
190                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
191        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
192             returns the string and it will get printed if it
193             was run interactively.
196        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
197        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
198        'show terminal' / 'show term'
199        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now

206        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
207        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
208        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
209        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
210        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
211        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
214        Fixed memory mishandling bug
215        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
216        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
217             MESSAGE messages
218        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
219            to class and instance
220        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
221        fixed typo in help
222        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support
223        zephyr @ formatting is now case independant
224        added support for color terminals

226        'D' for deleted messages is now not bold, unless it's the current
227          message
228        F1 displays the help screen
229        added filter colors
230        added the 'colorview' command
231        added the 'show colors' command
232        users who don't have a .zephyr.subs get a simpler format for
233          incoming messages
234        If colors are available 'show filters' will show a filter in the
235          color associated with it.
236        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
237        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
238        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
239        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
242        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
243              and spaces in a saner manner.
244        Removed all owl_get_* methods for booleans and switched
245              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
246        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
247        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
248              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
249        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
250              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented
251              variables with this).

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

314              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
315              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
316              a string not ending in a newline
317        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
318              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
319              to "all"
320        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
321              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
322        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
323              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)
324        Added the 'perl', 'aperl', and 'pperl' commands which will
325              evaluate perl expressions.
326        Fixed bug where pclose zsigproc would cause zombies
327        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
328        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
329              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
330        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
331        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
332        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
333              and added regression testing framework to tester
334        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
335        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
336              and the owl_dict type.
337              These include regression tests.
338        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
339              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
340              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
341              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
342              and for setting it to and from string values.
343              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
344              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
345              are generated from variable.c by
346              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
347              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
348        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
349              by variable overhaul.
350        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
351        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
352              print "Undefined variable" in addition
353              to running owl_function_printallvars.
354        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
355        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
356        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
357        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
358               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
359               string with args).
360        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
361        Removed lots of build warnings.
362        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
363        Added an atokenize_free function.
364        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.
365        Added dependencies on header files to
366        Added pageup and pagedown key bindings to message list
367        Added pageup and pagedown to viewwin
368        Added configfile section to doc/intro.txt (from example config file)
369        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
370              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
371              to put information about pings and logins into
372              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
373              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
374              for experimenting with what works well.)
375        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
376        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
379        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
380        don't return in owl_free
383        'print' and 'set' with no arguments prints all variables
