Revision 1.24 - (hide annotations)
Sun Sep 2 17:53:24 2007 UTC (6 years, 7 months ago) by afuchs
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.23: +40 -5 lines
Prepare the 0.9.5 release

* Less depressing release notes (i.e. MORE non-depressing release notes).
* Web page updates for new version
* mcclim.texi update for MCCLIMVERSION
1 afuchs 1.20 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
2     ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, scigraph, clim-examples,
3     and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
4 afuchs 1.24 first. Users with existing McCLIM installations should use the
5     provided script:
6     ./symlink-asd-files.sh /path/to/asdf-central-registry/
7     ** New extension: tab-layout. This extension allows keeping a stack of panes
8     whose foreground pane is controlled by a tab bar. This layout can be
9     customized in backends and frame managers. For examples, see the
10     gtkairo backend and the pixie frame manager.
11     ** New extension function: SHEET-RGB-IMAGE: makes a screenshot of a sheet
12     in the CLX backend. (Supported on truecolor visuals only for now.)
13     ** New experimental extension: tree-with-cross-edges are an extension to
14     the graph formatter.
15     ** New experimental backend: clim-graphic-forms: native widgets on Windows.
16     This backend is still very experimental (it doesn't run demos yet).
17     ** New inspector feature: The inspector now displays more useful information
18     about hash tables and generic functions.
19     ** Specification compliance: Various layout panes no longer quite as
20     aggressive at eating the space requirements of their children.
21     ** Specification compliance: There is now a rudimentary implementation of
22     NOTIFY-USER
23     ** Usability: Text editors and text input panes now use click-to-focus.
24     ** Improvement: the ACCEPTING-VALUES command table was renamed to
25     ACCEPT-VALUES (as this is the name that the other clim-2 implementation
26     uses)
27     ** Improvement: the CLX backend should no longer cause focus stealing
28 crhodes 1.21 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
29     a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
30 afuchs 1.24 ** Improvement: define-application-frame now allows a :default-initargs
31     option. (This is not exactly a "specification compliance" fix, as
32     d-a-frame is not defined to accept this option.).
33     ** Improvement: menu-choose menus now look a little prettier.
34     ** Improvement: added more styles for bordered-output: :rounded, :ellipse
35     ** Improvement: Toggle button values now default to NIL.
36     ** Improvement: Frame layouts are now inherited from the frame's
37     superclass.
38     ** Improvement: The Lisp Syntax is much improved: now recognizes
39     delimiter characters, and more types of Lambda lists.
40     ** Bug fix: Bezier designs should now draw in the right place in all
41     backends.
42     ** Bug fix: Text in Drei no longer "walks" to the left.
43     ** Bug fix: Drei now has better support for delimiter gestures.
44     ** Bug fix: Partial commands now work better when invoked from the menu.
45    
46 afuchs 1.20
47 afuchs 1.2 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
48     ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
49 dlichteblau 1.3 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
50     *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
51     *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
52 dlichteblau 1.10 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
53 dlichteblau 1.8 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
54     option panes.
55 dlichteblau 1.14 *** Draw text using Pango. (Bug fix: Fixed-width font supported on Windows
56     now. Multiple lines of output in TEXT-SIZE supported now.
57     TEXT-STYLE-FIXED-WIDTH-P works correctly now.)
58 thenriksen 1.5 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").
59 thenriksen 1.9 ** Improvement: Improved the pathname presentation methods considerably.
60 thenriksen 1.11 ** specification compliance: DELETE-GESTURE-NAME function now implemented.
61 thenriksen 1.12 ** specification compliance: PRESENTATION-TYPE-SPECIFIER-P presentaion
62     function now implemented.
63 thenriksen 1.13 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-TABLE-MENU function now
64     implemented.
65     ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-MENU function now
66     implemented.
67 thenriksen 1.15 ** specification compliance: POINTER-PLACE-RUBBER-BAND-LINE* function
68     now implemented.
69     ** specification compliance: POINTER-INPUT-RECTANGLE* function now
70     implemented.
71     ** specification compliance: POINTER-INPUT-RECTANGLE function now
72     implemented.
73 dlichteblau 1.16 ** Improvement: Added font listing support, see section "Fonts and Extended
74     Text Styles" in the manual.
75 dlichteblau 1.17 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
76     To be documented.
77 crhodes 1.18 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
78     on some-of and all-of presentation types)
79 thenriksen 1.19 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
80 afuchs 1.2
81 afuchs 1.1 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.3 "All Souls' Day" relative to 0.9.2:
82     ** backend improvement: The Null backend now registers itself in the
83     server search path
84     ** improvement: with-output-as-gadget now sets the correct cursor
85     position when incremental redisplay is active.
86     ** specification compliance: INVOKE-WITH-NEW-OUTPUT-RECORD's argument
87     list now is the same as the one in the Franz CLIM user guide.
88     ** improvement: The text field cursor is now a solid block again.
89     ** backend improvement: the PostScript backend now outputs correct EPS
90     ** improvement: Graph nodes can now be dragged
91     ** improvement: Possibilities when reading from
92     COMPLETE-FROM-GENERATOR are now sorted alphabetically.
93     ** new experimental backend: gtkairo (loads on SBCL, CMUCL and SCL):
94     Uses GTK+ for gadgets and cairo for rendering graphics.
95     ** Bug fix: incremental-redisplay does no longer leak memory
96     ** improvement: incremental-redisplay is now a little faster
97     ** Bug fix: Invisible text cursors no longer leave a dangling space
98     behind the text output record
99     ** improvement: commands whose names are shadowed in child command
100     tables are now suggested in preference to their parents.
101     ** Bug fix: (setf stream-cursor-position) and output record replay on
102     encapsulating streams work now.
103     ** Bug fix: Invoking command menu items in frames with no interactor
104     works now.
105     ** Bug fix: DESTROY-PORT removes the port even if an error occurs
106     while closing the port
