     4The BarnOwl Developers are pleased to announce the release of BarnOwl
     5version 1.7. In addition to new features, it contains security fixes
     6on top of BarnOwl 1.6.
     7
     8It has been installed in the Athena locker, and you can download it
     9from the website [1] or get the source from Github [2]. BarnOwl 1.7
     10contains various bug fixes and new features, including:
     11
     12* Several quoting bugs in filter generation have been fixed, which
     13  allowed a message to crash BarnOwl or call an arbitrary perl
     14  function when narrowed.
     15
     16* The Twitter module has been merged in.
     17
     18* :unsub should no longer fail when .zephyr.subs is a symlink, thanks
     19  to new developer Jason Gross.
     20
     21* The editwin now supports soft line-wrapping. edit:maxwrapcols and
     22  edit:maxfillcols no longer forcibly take the width of the screen
     23  into account.
     24
     25* BarnOwl now has an ncurses-based windowing system to replace our old
     26  ad-hoc code. As a result, the popwin should now resize appropriately
     27  when your terminal does. Resizes should also flicker less on slow
     28  terminals.
     29
     30* When displaying keymaps, :show now displays ancestor keymaps as well.
     31
     32* Tabs in incoming messages display better.
     33
     34* It is now possible to search in popless windows. Default keybindings
     35  should configure /, ?, n, and N to act similarly to less.
     36
     37* There is now a built-in random_zephyr_signature function. Set
     38  zsigfunc to BarnOwl::random_zephyr_signature and place your zsigs in
     39  ~/.zsigs.
     40
     41The full Changelog is available online [3].
     42
     43Thank you for using BarnOwl, and we hope you enjoy the new release. As
     44usual, any bug reports, questions, or feature requests can be directed
     45to the developers at <barnowl@mit.edu>.
