  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 22.3 KB
4        Page-down will not skip past the last message if its truncated.
5        Added C-t binding for transposing characters.  (from jdaniel)
8        Variables now have a summary and a long description.
9                Only the summary is shown with help.
10                The long description is shown with "show variable foo".
11        Fix the scrolling bug where we would sometimes fail to scroll
12             the screen down, leaving the current message off
13             the bottom of the screen.
14        Added a 'scrollmode' variable which determines how the screen
15             will scroll as the cursor moves.  The default behaves
16             identically to previous versions of owl.
17             The following modes are supported:
18             normal      - This is the owl default.  Scrolling happens
19                           when it needs to, and an attempt is made to
20                           keep the current message roughly near
21                           the middle of the screen.  (default)
22             top         - The current message will always be the
23                           the top message displayed.
24             neartop     - The current message will be one down
25                           from the top message displayed,
26                           where possible.
27             center      - An attempt is made to keep the current
28                           message near the center of the screen.
29             paged       - The top message displayed only changes
30                           when user moves the cursor to the top
31                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
32                           the screen will be paged up or down and
33                           the cursor will be near the top or
34                           the bottom.
35             pagedcenter - The top message displayed only changes
36                           when user moves the cursor to the top
37                           or bottom of the screen.  When it moves,
38                           the screen will be paged up or down and
39                           the cursor will be near the center.
42        Refixed 'login or login' typo in help
43        Fixed M-u description
44        Removed 'first' and 'last' from basic command help
45        Added M-N to basic key help
46        Added M-D, M-u to basic key help
47        Fixed a quoting problem in
48        Changed top of help to use 'show' instead of M-x
49        Fixed a bug in the summary field for user-created aliases
50        Added "reply zaway" which sends a zaway response to the current msg.
51        Added "edit:delete-prev-word" command and bound M-BACKSPACE to it.
52        Added owl_sprintf which returns the formatted string, or NULL.
53                The caller must free this string.
54                This will allocate enough memory and thus
55                avoid potential some buffer overrun situations.
56        Started fixing some potential buffer overrun situations.
57        Simple implementation of 'zwrite -m' (doesn't yet log an outgoing
58                message as having been sent.)
59        The "Not logged in or subscribing to messages" error
60                now includes the name of the recipient.
61        The "disable-ctrl-d" variable may also be set to "middle"
62                which will result in ctrl-d only sending at the
63                end of the message.  This is now the default.
64                This also added a command "editmulti:done-or-delete".
65        Fixed a bug in the "reply -e" command.
66        Always clear the command buffer before executing the command.
67                (So that interactive commands can sanely do start-command.)
68        Fixed preservation of e->dotsend across owl_editwin_clear().
69        Added history for multiline edit windows (eg, for zephyr composition).
70                The M-n and M-p keys will cycle through the history ring.
71                In particular, it is now possible to edit the command line
72                of a zephyr being composed:  C-c it and restart it
73                and then M-p to get the aborted composition back.
74        Added owl::send_zwrite(command, message) to the perl glue
75                to allow for the direct sending of multi-line messages.
76                For example:  owl::send_zwrite("-c foo -i bar", "hello");
77        Reverted attempted fix for the pagedown problem
78                which just made things worse.
79        Changed owl_fmtext_print_plain to return an alloc'd string to
80                avoid buffer overrun risks.
81        Added owl::ztext_stylestrip("...") function to perlglue
82                 which returns the ztext with formatting stripped out.
83        Added colorztext variable which can be used to disable @color()
84                 strings arriving in messages after it is set.
85                 (Currently, changing its value won't reformat messages).
86        Outgoing zephyr logging now obeys the logpath variable.
87        The '~' character in logpath and classlogpath now gets
88                 replaced with the user's home directory.
89        Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that
90                 creates a "type-admin" autofilter.
91                 This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something
92                 sane on admin messages.
93        Added opera to the allowed options to the webbrowser variable.
94        Fixed some buffer overruns in the "reply" command.
95        When repying to "all" on a message that begins with "CC:" (eg, sent
96                 with "zwrite -C", the reply line will be constructed
97                 from the sender and the usernames on the CC: line
98                 of the message being replied to.
99        There is no such thing as C-R, so left C-r as it is but added:
100                 M-r --- edit reply to all
101                 M-R --- edit reply to sender
104        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
105        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
106        Added --no-move option to delete command.
107                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
108                be implemented with
109                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
110        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
111                one command which takes arguments.
112                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
113                '--skip-deleted' option, and
114                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
115                Help updated accordingly. 
116                In particular, the 'personal' view is now used
117                for 'next personal'. 
118        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
119        Fixed the annoying pagedown sometimes-not-working bug.
120        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
121                narrowing, to make it more general.
122        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
123                based on the current message and returns the name
124                of the filter.
125        Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
126                to the next and prev commands.
127        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
128                matching current" and "move to previous message
129                matching current"
130        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
131                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
132                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
133                depending on the current size of the window.
134                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
135                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
136        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
137                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
138                the proposed zpunt.
139        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
140        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
141        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
142                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
143                value of strings returned by owl commands.
144        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
145                view's filter. 
146        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
147        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
148                narrow and restore the view. 
149        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
150                color messages matching the current one green.
153        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
154        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
155        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
156                contexts, and keybindings.
157        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
158                Switched the binding back to M-D.
159        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
160                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
161                of the output now.
162        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
163                and new show commands.
164        Show with arguments produces help on show.
165        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
166                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
167        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
168             returns the string and it will get printed if it
169             was run interactively.
170        New framework for command handling.
171        New framework for keymap handling.
172        Added commands for everything that is bound
173             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
174        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
175             to be specified on a line.             
176        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
177        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
178        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
179        Added additional options to delete command.
180        The reply command now takes arguments.
181        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
182        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
183        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
184        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
185        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
186        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
187        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
188             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
189             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
190             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
193        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
194        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

208        downcase class/inst filter names in auto filters
211        Fixed memory mishandling bug
212        Fixed bug in redfining the filter attached to the current view
213        M-n will narrow to message, instance on non-personal, class
214             MESSAGE messages
215        M-N behavies like M-n except that on class messages it narrows
216            to class and instance
217        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
218        fixed typo in help
219        'status' command now displays info on terminal color support

232          color associated with it.
233        Added the zpunt and zunpunt commands
234        Lines in the subs file starting with '-' are zpunted
235        Include login/logout messages in auto user filters
236        'V' changes to the home view ('all' by default)
239        Fixed perl, aperl, and pperl commands to deal with quoting
240              and spaces in a saner manner.
241        Removed all owl_get_* methods for booleans and switched
242              cases where they were used to owl_is_*
243        Changes to owlconf.erik to use some new features.
244        Increased the size of the help buffer (as it
245              was overflowing and truncating the help message).
246        Variables prefixed with a _ are not shown in help
247              or by printallvars (and prefixed Not Yet Implemented

308        Fixed an arg checking bug in delete command
309        Added owl::id to perl namespace with message id

312              This would be triggered whenever owl::format_msg returned
313              a string not ending in a newline
314        Added 'X' keybinding which expunges and then switches to

324        Can set zsigproc or zsig to "" to disable
325        Added support for multiple browsers (galeon and none were added).
326              Configure with the "webbrowser" variable.
327        Changing typewinsize height triggers resize event.
328        Added zsig variable which will be used if no zsigproc and non-empty.
329        Added "make test" rule to Makefile which will run regression tests,
330              and added regression testing framework to tester

332        Added dict.c which contains string->ptr dictionary routines
333              and the owl_dict type.
334              These include regression tests.
335        Overhaul/rewrite of variable handling.  Variables are now managed
336              in an owl_vardict (in g.vars) which contains a dictionary
337              of owl_variable's.  Each owl_variable has dispatch functions
338              for validating values, setting it and getting it,
339              and for setting it to and from string values.
340              The variable.c file contains the list of variables.
341              Stubs for the owl_global_<varname>_get functions and friends
342              are generated from variable.c by
343              The help.c messages for variables now calls into variable.c
344              so all information about most variables is in one place.   
345        Cleaned out code from global.c and command.c that was made obselete
346              by variable overhaul.
347        The set command now takes a -q option to not log a message.
348        Fixed a bug where set and print with no arguments would
349              print "Undefined variable" in addition
350              to running owl_function_printallvars.
351        debug is now a variable that can be turned on and off.
352        Fixed mail,inbox message parsing in examples/owlconf.erik
353        Made zaway_msg and zaway_msg_default into variables
354        Changed owl_function_makemsg and owl_function_debugmsg
355               to use varargs (ie, so they can now take a format
356               string with args).
357        Don't allow " and \ characters in URLs with the "w" command.
358        Removed lots of build warnings.
359        Popwins are wider by default so help messages fit better.
360        Added an atokenize_free function.
361        Fixes to work with an older version of libzephyr.
362        Added dependencies on header files to
363        Added pageup and pagedown key bindings to message list
364        Added pageup and pagedown to viewwin
365        Added configfile section to doc/intro.txt (from example config file)
366        Added appendtosepbar variable which may contain text which will
367              be appended to the sepbar.  This allows the configfile
368              to put information about pings and logins into
369              the sepbar.  (It may be worth also providing a variable
370              which enables this by default, but for now this allows
371              for experimenting with what works well.)
372        Added doc/code.txt which gives a brief overview of the code.
373        Added tags makefile rule and added TAGS to distclean rule.
376        fix frees in loadsubs and loadloginsubs
377        don't return in owl_free
380        'print' and 'set' with no arguments prints all variables
381        Added the 'unsubscribe' and 'unsub' command
382        Renamed the 'unsub' command to 'unsuball'
383        Added the 'getsubs' command which is like zctl ret
384        Fixed bug in logging messages sent to more than one recipient
385        Support '-C', '-O', and '-n' options to zwrite
386        Fixed bug in owl_editwin_delete_char when there are no later chars
387          after the cursor
