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.
53        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
54        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
55        Added --no-move option to delete command.
56                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
57                be implemented with
58                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
59        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
60                one command which takes arguments.
61                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
62                '--skip-deleted' option, and
63                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
64                Help updated accordingly. 
65                In particular, the 'personal' view is now used
66                for 'next personal'. 
67        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
68        Fixed the annoying pagedown sometimes-not-working bug.
69        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
70                narrowing, to make it more general.
71        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
72                based on the current message and returns the name
73                of the filter.
74        Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
75                to the next and prev commands.
76        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
77                matching current" and "move to previous message
78                matching current"
79        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
80                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
81                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
82                depending on the current size of the window.
83                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
84                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
85        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
86                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
87                the proposed zpunt.
88        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
89        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
90        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
91                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
92                value of strings returned by owl commands.
93        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
94                view's filter. 
95        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
96        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
97                narrow and restore the view. 
98        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
99                color messages matching the current one green.
102        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
103        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
104        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
105                contexts, and keybindings.
106        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
107                Switched the binding back to M-D.
108        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
109                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
110                of the output now.
111        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
112                and new show commands.
113        Show with arguments produces help on show.
114        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
115                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
116        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
117             returns the string and it will get printed if it
118             was run interactively.
119        New framework for command handling.
120        New framework for keymap handling.
121        Added commands for everything that is bound
122             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
123        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
124             to be specified on a line.             
125        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
126        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
127        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
128        Added additional options to delete command.
129        The reply command now takes arguments.
130        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
131        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
132        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
133        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
134        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
135        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
136        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
137             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
138             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
139             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
142        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
143        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

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

181          color associated with it.
182        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

191              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
192        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
193        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
194              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
195        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help

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

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

315        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
316              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
317              to put information about pings and logins into
318              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
319              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
320              for experimenting with what works well.)
321        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
322        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
325        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
326        don't return in owl_free
329        'print' and 'set' with no arguments prints all variables

331        Renamed the 'unsub' command to 'unsuball'
332        Added the 'getsubs' command which is like zctl ret
