16        Started implementing zcrypt command
17        More updates to the intro doc
20        Started adding code for newmsgproc.  It doesn't fully work yet!
21          Don't use it.
22        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
23        Will attempt to keep the current message as close as possible
24             to the previous current message after an expunge.
25        "set <variable>" and "unset <variable>" now work for boolean variables.
26        Fixed a bug in owl_function_calculate_topmsg_normal that caused a
27          segfault
28        Fixed some typos in the intro doc
29        Removed old zlog functions from zephyr.c
30        Implemented the dump command
31        New startup message

38        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
39        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
42        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
43             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
44        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'

51        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
52        Fixed a bug in moving the pointer after an expunge
53        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always

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

298        can now do 'show version'
299        'status' / 'show status' includes the owl version number now
300        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
301        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
302        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
303        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
304        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
307        Fixed memory mishandling bug
308        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
309        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
310             MESSAGE messages
311        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
312            to class and instance
313        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
314        fixed typo in help
315        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

328          color associated with it.
329        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

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

338              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
339        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
340        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
341              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
342        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
343              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

402        Added owl_function_delete_by_id(id) which acts independent of view

404        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
405        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
406        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
407              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
408              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
409              a string not ending in a newline
410        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
411              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults

416              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)

426              and added regression testing framework to tester
427        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
428        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
429              and the owl_dict type.
430              These include regression tests.
431        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
432              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
433              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
434              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
435              and for setting it to and from string values.
436              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
437              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
438              are generated from variable.c by
439              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
440              so all information about most variables is in one place.

442              by variable overhaul.
443        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.

445              print "Undefined variable" in addition
446              to running owl_function_printallvars.
447        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
448        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
449        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
450        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
451               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
452               string with args).
453        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.

462        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
463              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
464              to put information about pings and logins into
465              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
466              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
467              for experimenting with what works well.)
468        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
469        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
