     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.
     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:
     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.
     16* The Twitter module has been merged in.
     18* :unsub should no longer fail when .zephyr.subs is a symlink, thanks
     19  to new developer Jason Gross.
     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.
     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.
     30* When displaying keymaps, :show now displays ancestor keymaps as well.
     32* Tabs in incoming messages display better.
     34* It is now possible to search in popless windows. Default keybindings
     35  should configure /, ?, n, and N to act similarly to less.
     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.
     41The full Changelog is available online [3].
     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 <>.
