Last change on this file since f73e519 was f73e519, checked in by Erik Nygren <>, 22 years ago
Added simple implementation of smartnarrow-to-admin that creates a "type-admin" autofilter. This was done mostly so that M-C-n and M-C-p do something sane on admin messages.
  • Property mode set to 100644
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.
57        Added RCS Id strings to all files.
58        'show keymaps' shows details of all keymaps after summary list.
59        Added --no-move option to delete command.
60                In particular, delete-and-always-move-down may now
61                be implemented with
62                '( delete --no-move ; next --skip-deleted )'.
63        Folded the nextmsg and prevmsg commands and functions together into
64                one command which takes arguments.
65                Added '--filter <name>' option (eg, for next_personal),
66                '--skip-deleted' option, and
67                '--last-if-none'/'--first-if-none' options.
68                Help updated accordingly. 
69                In particular, the 'personal' view is now used
70                for 'next personal'. 
71        Updated examples/owlconf.erik with the above.
72        Fixed the annoying pagedown sometimes-not-working bug.
73        Made owl_function_fast*filt return a string and not do the
74                narrowing, to make it more general.
75        Added a smartfilter command that creates a filter
76                based on the current message and returns the name
77                of the filter.
78        Added --smart-filter and --smart-filter-instance options
79                to the next and prev commands.
80        Added M-C-n and M-C-p keybindings to "move to next message
81                matching current" and "move to previous message
82                matching current"
83        Added variables edit:maxfillcols and edit:maxwrapcols which
84                will limit how wide editing paragraphs may get before
85                they get wrapped.  This is a max and may be narrower
86                depending on the current size of the window.
87                If 0, the max is unlimited.  Default is 70 columns for
88                edit:maxfillcols and unlimited for edit:maxwrapcols.
89        Added smartzpunt command with key binding of "C-x k".
90                This starts a zpunt command filled in with
91                the proposed zpunt.
92        Fixed a memory reference bug in delete and undelete commands.
93        Added support for perl to call directly back into owl.
94        Changed the implementation of owl::command("...") to immediately
95                call back into owl.  This allows perl to get the return
96                value of strings returned by owl commands.
97        Added the getview command which returns the name of the current
98                view's filter. 
99        Added the getvar command which returns the value of a variable.
100        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses TAB to
101                narrow and restore the view. 
102        Added an example to examples/owlconf.erik which uses M-c to
103                color messages matching the current one green.
106        Integrated change to fix problem with popup blinking on new zephyrs.
107        C-l and resizes will now refresh an open viewwin (eg, help).
108        Updated doc/code.txt to include info about filters, commands,
109                contexts, and keybindings.
110        Ooops.  "delete view" had accidentally been misbound to M-d.
111                Switched the binding back to M-D.
112        Exec commands cleaned up to not have buffer-size limitations
113                and to not mess up spaces.  exec also returns a string
114                of the output now.
115        Integrated changes from 1.1.3, and added docs for "zlocate -d"
116                and new show commands.
117        Show with arguments produces help on show.
118        Fix a bug in readconfig caught by efence (where we'd try to read before
119                the beginning of a string if it was empty).
120        The perl command doesn't do makemsg directly, but instead
121             returns the string and it will get printed if it
122             was run interactively.
123        New framework for command handling.
124        New framework for keymap handling.
125        Added commands for everything that is bound
126             to a key (do 'show commands' to get the full list).
127        Added 'multi' and '(' commands to allow multiple commands
128             to be specified on a line.             
129        Added user keybindings with bindkey command.
130        Added command aliases (eg, "alias foo bar").
131        Added undelete command that parallels the delete command.
132        Added additional options to delete command.
133        The reply command now takes arguments.
134        Added 'edit:insert-text' command.
135        Added 'show zpunts' to show active punt filters.
136        Added 'show variable <name>' and 'show variables'.
137        Added 'show command <name>' and 'show commands'.
138        Added 'show keymap <name>' and 'show keymaps'.
139        Added 'M-u' to undelete all messages in current view.
140        Fixed dotsend so that the zephyr will still send if there
141             is whitespace after the dot but not on the same line.
142             This should resolve an issue where dotsend wouldn't work
143             if you'd gone up and edited a zephyr.
146        'show subs' and 'show subscriptions' are now the same as 'getsubs'
147        zlocate now takes an optional -d argument

167             MESSAGE messages

169            to class and instance
170        line wrap earlier, to account for tabbing
171        fixed typo in help

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

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

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