Started updating the intro document Small changes to help / about The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) update .zephyr.subs by default. If either is given the '-t' (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 26.2 KB
3        'zlog in' will now take an optional thrid argument to set the
4             'tty' variable before setting the zlocation
5        There is now a 'zlist' command that acts like 'znol -l'
6        'l' is bound to 'zlist'
7        Fixed memory leak uninitialzed memory read in fmtext
8        viewwin will now say "End" instead of "More" when at the end
9        Added a debugging message indicating the result of topmsg
10          calculations
11        You can now use %me% in filters
12        The built-in personal filter is updated to do so
13        Fixed a bug in moving the poiner after an expunge
14        Fixed up the normal scrolling code.  Now it should always
15          land on a message, but it's still not optimal.
16        Added the variable 'smartstrip' which will strip kerberos
17          instances out for the 'reply' command.
18        Added -R/usr/athena/lib to the build for Athena
19        Started updating the intro document
20        Small changes to help / about
21        The 'subscribe' and 'unsubscribe' commands (and their aliases) now
22          update .zephyr.subs by default.  If either is given the '-t'
23          (for "temporary") option the .zephyr.subs will not be updated
26        Added filters "ping", "auto" and "login" by default.
27        Added "body" as a valid field to match on in a filter.
28        Temporary fix to bug where C-SPACE would cause the key handler to
29             lock up.
30        Messages now have a direciton (in, out or none).  Filters can
31             match on this direction
32        Outbound messages are no longer type 'admin' but are of the
33             appropriate message type (i.e. 'zephyr') and are direction
34             'out'.
35        Smartnarrow now works on outgoing messages
36        'info' updated to show more information for admin and outgoing
37             messages
38        Renamed pretty_sender to short_zuser and renamed long_sender to
39             long_zuser
40        Moved zsig generation to the zwrite object
41        Print the zsig used for outgoing messages
42        The tty variable now controls the zephyr location tty name
45        Added the 'search' command.
46        '/' is a keybinding for 'search'
47        '?' is a keybinding for 'search -r'
48        Fixed stristr, which was completely broken
49        renamed owl_fmtext_ztext_stylestrip to owl_function_ztext_styletsrip
50             and put it in functions.c
51        Attempts to stay near the current message when switching views.
52             When switching from an empty view to one we've previously
53             been in, the new current message position will attempt
54             to be close to the current position from the last
55             time we visited that view.
56        Fixed bug in readconfig.c that prevented building under perl 5.005.
57        Switched "C-x C-x" to only "startcommand quit"
58        'getsubs' prints closer to the order you sub in.
59        Modified the behavior of last so that "> >" will clear the screen.
60        The new behavior of last is:
61              Moves the pointer to the last message in the view.
62              If we are already at the last message in the view,
63              blanks the screen and moves just past the end of the view
64              so that new messages will appear starting at the top
65              of the screen.
66        Fixed a typo in the help for smartzpunt.
67        Fixed functions to handle curmsg being past the end of the view.
70        New framework for command handling.
71        New framework for keymap handling.
72        Added commands for everything that is bound
73             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
74        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
75             to be specified on a line.             
76        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
77        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
78        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
79        Added additional options to delete command.
80        The reply command now takes arguments.
81        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
82        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
83        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
84        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
85        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
86        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
87        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
88             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
89             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
90             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
91        Bug in page down fixed
92        C-t will transpose characters
93        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
94             the screen down, leaving the current message off
95             the bottom of the screen.
96        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
97        Fixed M-u description
98        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
99        Added M-N to basic key help
100        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
101        Fixed a quoting problem in
102        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
103        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
104        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
105        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
106        Some buffer overruns fixed
107        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
108                Only the summary is shown with help.
109                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
110        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
111             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
112             identically to previous versions of owl.
113             The following modes are supported:
114             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
115                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
116                           keep the current message roughly near
117                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
118             top         - The current message will always be the
119                           the top message displayed.
120             neartop     - The current message will be one down
121                           from the top message displayed,
122                           where possible.
123             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
124                           message near the center of the screen.
125             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
126                           when user moves the cursor to the top
127                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
128                           the screen will be paged up or down and
129                           the cursor will be near the top or
130                           the bottom.
131             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
132                           when user moves the cursor to the top
133                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
134                           the screen will be paged up or down and
135                           the cursor will be near the center.
136        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
137                The caller must free this string.
138                This will allocate enough memory and thus
139                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
140        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
141                message as having been sent.)
142        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
143                now includes the name of the recipient.
144        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
145                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
146                end of the message.  This is now the default.
147                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
148        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
149        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
150                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
151        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
152        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
153                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
154                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
155                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
156                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
157        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
158                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
159                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
160        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
161                avoid buffer overrun risks.
162        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
163                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
164        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
165                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
166                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
167        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
168        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
169                 replaced with the user's home directory.
170        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
171                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
172                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
173                 sane on admin messages.
174        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
175        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
176        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
177                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
178                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
179                 of the message being replied to.
180        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
181                 M-r --- edit reply to all
182                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
183        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
184        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
185        Added --no-move option to delete command.
186                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
187                be implemented with
188                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
189        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
190                one command which takes arguments.
191                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
192                '--skip-deleted' option, and
193                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
194                Help updated accordingly. 
195                In particular, the 'personal' filter is now used
196                for 'next personal'. 
197                Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
198                to the next and prev commands.
199        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
200        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
201                narrowing, to make it more general.
202        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
203                based on the current message and returns the name
204                of the filter.
205        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
206                matching current" and "move to previous message
207                matching current"
208        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
209                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
210                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
211                depending on the current size of the window.
212                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
213                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
214        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
215                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
216                the proposed zpunt.
217        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
218        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
219        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
220                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
221                value of strings returned by owl commands.
222        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
223                view's filter. 
224        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
225        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
226                narrow and restore the view. 
227        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
228                color messages matching the current one green.
229        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
230        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
231        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
232                contexts, and keybindings.
233        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
234                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
235                of the output now.
236        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
237                and new show commands.
238        Show with arguments produces help on show.
239        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
240                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
241        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
242             returns the string and it will get printed if it
243             was run interactively.
246        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
247        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument
248        'show terminal' / 'show term'
249        '>' / last doesn't set the last message at the top of the screen now

257        'show terminal' includes whether the terminal can change colors
258        fixed off by one bugs in paging / scrolling viewwin
259        don't downcase the sender when getting the log name for personals
260        support @owl::fields as well as @fields
261        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
264        Fixed memory mishandling bug
265        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
266        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
267             MESSAGE messages
268        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
269            to class and instance
270        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
271        fixed typo in help
272        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

285          color associated with it.
286        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
287        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
288        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
289        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
292        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
293              and spaces in a saner manner.

295              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
296        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
297        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
298              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
299        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
300              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

365              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
366              a string not ending in a newline
367        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to
368              a view defined by the variable "view_home" which defaults

383              and added regression testing framework to tester
384        Fixed to ignore static declarations.
385        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
386              and the owl_dict type.
387              These include regression tests.
388        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
389              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
390              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
391              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
392              and for setting it to and from string values.
393              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
394              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
395              are generated from variable.c by
396              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
397              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
398        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
399              by variable overhaul.
400        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
401        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
402              print "Undefined variable" in addition
403              to running owl_function_printallvars.
404        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.

407        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
408               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
409               string with args).

419        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
420              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
421              to put information about pings and logins into
422              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
423              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
424              for experimenting with what works well.)
425        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
426        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
