File size: 20.0 KB
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
12        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
13        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
14        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
15                The caller must free this string.
16                This will allocate enough memory and thus
17                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
18        Started fixing some potential buffer overrun situations.
19        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
20                message as having been sent.)
21        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
22                now includes the name of the recipient.
23        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
24                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
25                end of the message.  This is now the default.
26                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
27        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
28        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
29                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
30        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
31        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
32                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
33                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
34                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
35                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
36        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
37                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
38                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
39        Reverted attempted fix for the pagedown problem
40                which just made things worse.
41        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
42                avoid buffer overrun risks.
43        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
44                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
45        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
46                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
47                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
48        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
49        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
50                 replaced with the user's home directory.
51        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
52                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
53                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
54                 sane on admin messages.
55        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
58        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
59        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
60        Added --no-move option to delete command.
61                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
62                be implemented with
63                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
64        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
65                one command which takes arguments.
66                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
67                '--skip-deleted' option, and
68                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
69                Help updated accordingly. 
70                In particular, the 'personal' view is now used
71                for 'next personal'. 
72        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
73        Fixed the annoying pagedown sometimes-not-working bug.
74        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
75                narrowing, to make it more general.
76        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
77                based on the current message and returns the name
78                of the filter.
79        Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
80                to the next and prev commands.
81        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
82                matching current" and "move to previous message
83                matching current"
84        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
85                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
86                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
87                depending on the current size of the window.
88                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
89                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
90        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
91                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
92                the proposed zpunt.
93        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
94        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
95        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
96                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
97                value of strings returned by owl commands.
98        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
99                view's filter. 
100        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
101        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
102                narrow and restore the view. 
103        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
104                color messages matching the current one green.
107        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
108        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
109        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
110                contexts, and keybindings.
111        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
112                Switched the binding back to M-D.
113        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
114                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
115                of the output now.
116        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
117                and new show commands.
118        Show with arguments produces help on show.
119        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
120                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
121        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
122             returns the string and it will get printed if it
123             was run interactively.
124        New framework for command handling.
125        New framework for keymap handling.
126        Added commands for everything that is bound
127             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
128        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
129             to be specified on a line.             
130        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
131        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
132        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
133        Added additional options to delete command.
134        The reply command now takes arguments.
135        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
136        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
137        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
138        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
139        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
140        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
141        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
142             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
143             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
144             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
147        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
148        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

165        Fixed memory mishandling bug
166        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
167        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
168             MESSAGE messages
169        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
170            to class and instance
171        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
172        fixed typo in help
173        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

186          color associated with it.
187        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

196              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
197        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
198        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
199              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
200        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
201              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

267              a string not ending in a newline
268        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to

287              and the owl_dict type.
288              These include regression tests.
289        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
290              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
291              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
292              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
293              and for setting it to and from string values.
294              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
295              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
296              are generated from variable.c by
297              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
298              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
299        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
300              by variable overhaul.
301        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
302        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
303              print "Undefined variable" in addition
304              to running owl_function_printallvars.
305        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
306        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
307        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
308        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
309               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
310               string with args).
311        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
312        Removed lots of build warnings.
313        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
314        Added an atokenize_free function.
315        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.

320        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
321              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
322              to put information about pings and logins into
323              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
324              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
325              for experimenting with what works well.)
326        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
327        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
330        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
331        don't return in owl_free
