4        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
5        Fixed M-u description
6        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
7        Added M-N to basic key help
8        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
9        Fixed a quoting problem in
10        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
11        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases.
14        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
15        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
16        Added --no-move option to delete command.
17                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
18                be implemented with
19                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
20        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
21                one command which takes arguments.
22                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
23                '--skip-deleted' option, and
24                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
25                Help updated accordingly. 
26                In particular, the 'personal' view is now used
27                for 'next personal'. 
28        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
29        Fixed the annoying pagedown sometimes-not-working bug.
30        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
31                narrowing, to make it more general.
32        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
33                based on the current message and returns the name
34                of the filter.
35        Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
36                to the next and prev commands.
37        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
38                matching current" and "move to previous message
39                matching current"
40        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
41                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
42                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
43                depending on the current size of the window.
44                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
45                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
46        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
47                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
48                the proposed zpunt.
49        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
50        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
51        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
52                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
53                value of strings returned by owl commands.
54        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
55                view's filter. 
56        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
57        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
58                narrow and restore the view. 
59        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
60                color messages matching the current one green.
63        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
64        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
65        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
66                contexts, and keybindings.
67        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
68                Switched the binding back to M-D.
69        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
70                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
71                of the output now.
74        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
75                and new show commands.
76        Show with arguments produces help on show.
77        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
78                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
81        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
82             returns the string and it will get printed if it
83             was run interactively.
86        *** NOTE: I probably missed some things here...
87        New framework for command handling.
88        New framework for keymap handling.
89        Added commands for everything that is bound
90             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
91        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
92             to be specified on a line.             
93        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
94        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
95        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
96        Added additional options to delete command.
97        The reply command now takes arguments.
98        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
99        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
100        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
101        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
102        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
103        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
104        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
105             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
106             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work

131             MESSAGE messages

133            to class and instance
134        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
135        fixed typo in help

159              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
160        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
161        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
162              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
163        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
164              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

250              and the owl_dict type.
251              These include regression tests.
252        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
253              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
254              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
255              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
256              and for setting it to and from string values.
257              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
258              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
259              are generated from variable.c by
260              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
261              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
262        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
263              by variable overhaul.
264        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
265        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
266              print "Undefined variable" in addition
267              to running owl_function_printallvars.
268        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
269        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
270        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
271        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
272               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
273               string with args).
274        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
275        Removed lots of build warnings.

283        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
284              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
285              to put information about pings and logins into
286              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
287              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
288              for experimenting with what works well.)
289        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
290        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
