Prettyed up the zwrite line for using 'reply' on a zaway
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 27.5 KB
4        Outgoing messages now go through the config for formatting
5        Zaway now makes an outgoing message, instead of an admin message
6        The 'zlocate' command can now handle multiple users
7        The simple user format for "To:" is in effect again
8        Prettyed up the zwrite line for using 'reply' on a zaway
11        Started adding code for newmsgproc.  It doesn't fully work yet!
12          Don't use it.
13        Added search, '/' and '?' to basic help.
14        Will attempt to keep the current message as close as possible
15             to the previous current message after an expunge.
16        "set <variable>" and "unset <variable>" now work for boolean variables.
17        Fixed a bug in owl_function_calculate_topmsg_normal that caused a
18          segfault
19        Fixed some typos in the intro doc
20        Removed old zlog functions from zephyr.c
21        Implemented the dump command
22        New startup message
25        Patch to fix memory bug in replying to CC messages
26        If we're on Athena and have static krb (or other) libraries, use
27          them
28        Added "athstatic" program to the release, which handles the above
29        Cast to an int for isspace, to make gcc -Wall quiet
30        Added 'zlist' and 'l' to basic help.
33        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
34             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
35        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
36        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
37        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
38        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
39        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
40          calculations
41        You can now use %me% in filters
42        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
43        Fixed a bug in moving the pointer after an expunge
44        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
45          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
46        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
47          instances out for the 'reply' command.
48        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
49        Started updating the intro document
50        Small changes to help / about
51        The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) now
52          update .zephyr.subs by default.  If either is given the '-t'
53          (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
54        Turned off beeping for hitting the top or bottom of the list of
55          messages
56        Made daemon.webzephyr a special case for smartstrip
57        Added 'out' as a default filter for outgoing messages
60        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
61        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
62        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
63             lock up.
64        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
65             match on this direction
66        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
67             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
68             'out'.
69        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
70        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
71             messages
72        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
73             long_zuser
74        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
75        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
76        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
79        Added the 'search' command.
80        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
81        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
82        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
83        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
84             and put it in functions.c
85        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
86             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
87             been in, the new current message position will attempt
88             to be close to the current position from the last
89             time we visited that view.
90        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
91        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
92        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
93        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
94        The new behavior of last is:
95              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
96              If we are already at the last message in the view,
97              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
98              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
99              of the screen.
100        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
101        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
104        New framework for command handling.
105        New framework for keymap handling.
106        Added commands for everything that is bound
107             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
108        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
109             to be specified on a line.             
110        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
111        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
112        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
113        Added additional options to delete command.
114        The reply command now takes arguments.
115        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
116        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
117        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
118        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
119        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
120        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
121        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
122             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
123             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
124             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
125        Bug in page down fixed
126        C-t will transpose characters
127        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
128             the screen down, leaving the current message off
129             the bottom of the screen.
130        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
131        Fixed M-u description
132        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
133        Added M-N to basic key help
134        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
135        Fixed a quoting problem in
136        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
137        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
138        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
139        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
140        Some buffer overruns fixed
141        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
142                Only the summary is shown with help.
143                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
144        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
145             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
146             identically to previous versions of owl.
147             The following modes are supported:
148             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
149                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
150                           keep the current message roughly near
151                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
152             top         - The current message will always be the
153                           the top message displayed.
154             neartop     - The current message will be one down
155                           from the top message displayed,
156                           where possible.
157             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
158                           message near the center of the screen.
159             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
160                           when user moves the cursor to the top
161                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
162                           the screen will be paged up or down and
163                           the cursor will be near the top or
164                           the bottom.
165             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
166                           when user moves the cursor to the top
167                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
168                           the screen will be paged up or down and
169                           the cursor will be near the center.
170        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
171                The caller must free this string.
172                This will allocate enough memory and thus
173                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
174        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
175                message as having been sent.)
176        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
177                now includes the name of the recipient.
178        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
179                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
180                end of the message.  This is now the default.
181                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
182        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
183        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
184                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
185        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
186        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
187                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
188                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
189                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
190                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
191        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
192                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
193                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
194        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
195                avoid buffer overrun risks.
196        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
197                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
198        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
199                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
200                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
201        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
202        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
203                 replaced with the user's home directory.
204        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
205                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
206                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
207                 sane on admin messages.
208        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
209        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
210        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
211                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
212                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
213                 of the message being replied to.
214        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
215                 M-r --- edit reply to all
216                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
217        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
218        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
219        Added --no-move option to delete command.
220                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
221                be implemented with
222                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
223        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
224                one command which takes arguments.
225                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
226                '--skip-deleted' option, and
227                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
228                Help updated accordingly. 
229                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
230                for 'next personal'. 
231                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
232                to the next and prev commands.
233        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
234        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
235                narrowing, to make it more general.
236        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
237                based on the current message and returns the name
238                of the filter.
239        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
240                matching current" and "move to previous message
241                matching current"
242        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
243                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
244                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
245                depending on the current size of the window.
246                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
247                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
248        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
249                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
250                the proposed zpunt.
251        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
252        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
253        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
254                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
255                value of strings returned by owl commands.
256        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
257                view's filter. 
258        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
259        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
260                narrow and restore the view. 
261        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
262                color messages matching the current one green.
263        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
264        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
265        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
266                contexts, and keybindings.
267        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
268                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
269                of the output now.
270        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
271                and new show commands.
272        Show with arguments produces help on show.
273        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
274                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
275        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
276             returns the string and it will get printed if it
277             was run interactively.
280        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
281        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
282        'show terminal' / 'show term'
283        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now
284        implemented _followlast as an unsupported feature
285        include 'default' in the 'show colors' list
286        added help for 'zpunt' and 'zunpunt'
287        changed the bug address in the startup message

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

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

329              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
330        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
331        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
332              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
333        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
334              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

395        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
396        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id
397        Fixed a memory corruption bug in readconfig.c (where right
398              after the strdup to "out", we'd strcat a \n onto the end.
399              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
400              a string not ending in a newline
401        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
402              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults
403              to "all"
404        Consolidated readconfig.c somewhat to remove duplication.
405              owl_config_execute now returns a string.
406        Added an example config file that does vt-style formatting.
407              (examples/owlconf.vtformat)

415        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
416        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
417              and added regression testing framework to tester
418        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
419        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
420              and the owl_dict type.
421              These include regression tests.
422        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
423              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
424              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
425              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
426              and for setting it to and from string values.
427              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
428              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
429              are generated from variable.c by
430              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
431              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
432        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
433              by variable overhaul.
434        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
435        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
436              print "Undefined variable" in addition
437              to running owl_function_printallvars.
438        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
439        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
440        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
441        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
442               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
443               string with args).
444        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
445        Removed lots of build warnings.

453        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
454              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
455              to put information about pings and logins into
456              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
457              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
458              for experimenting with what works well.)
459        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
460        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
