source: ChangeLog @ e50cd56

Last change on this file since e50cd56 was e50cd56, checked in by Erik Nygren <>, 22 years ago
Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command. When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line of the message being replied to. There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added: M-r --- edit reply to all M-R --- edit reply to sender

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

173        Fixed memory mishandling bug
174        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
175        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
176             MESSAGE messages
177        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
178            to class and instance
179        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
180        fixed typo in help
181        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

194          color associated with it.
195        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands

204              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
205        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
206        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
207              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
208        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
209              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

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

328        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
329              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
330              to put information about pings and logins into
331              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
332              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
333              for experimenting with what works well.)
334        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
335        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
338        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
339        don't return in owl_free
342        'print' and 'set' with no arguments prints all variables

344        Renamed the 'unsub' command to 'unsuball'
345        Added the 'getsubs' command which is like zctl ret
