Changes since 1.27: +2 -0 lines
Added mention of MCCLIM-IMAGES to NEWS.
1 crhodes 1.26 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.6 relative to 0.9.5:
2     ** Bug fix: ESA's help commands are better at finding bindings and
3     describing them
4 crhodes 1.27 ** Bug fix: Some missing methods and functions have been implemented
5     for the Null backend, allowing headless operation for many
6     applications.
7 thenriksen 1.28 ** New extension: MCCLIM-IMAGES. This extension makes it easy to use
8     McCLIM for loading and displaying images of various formats.
9 crhodes 1.26
10 afuchs 1.20 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
11 afuchs 1.25 ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, clim-examples,
12 afuchs 1.20 and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
13 afuchs 1.24 first. Users with existing McCLIM installations should use the
14     provided script:
15     ./symlink-asd-files.sh /path/to/asdf-central-registry/
16     ** New extension: tab-layout. This extension allows keeping a stack of panes
17     whose foreground pane is controlled by a tab bar. This layout can be
18     customized in backends and frame managers. For examples, see the
19     gtkairo backend and the pixie frame manager.
20     ** New extension function: SHEET-RGB-IMAGE: makes a screenshot of a sheet
21     in the CLX backend. (Supported on truecolor visuals only for now.)
22     ** New experimental extension: tree-with-cross-edges are an extension to
23     the graph formatter.
24     ** New experimental backend: clim-graphic-forms: native widgets on Windows.
25     This backend is still very experimental (it doesn't run demos yet).
26     ** New inspector feature: The inspector now displays more useful information
27     about hash tables and generic functions.
28     ** Specification compliance: Various layout panes no longer quite as
29     aggressive at eating the space requirements of their children.
30     ** Specification compliance: There is now a rudimentary implementation of
31     NOTIFY-USER
32     ** Usability: Text editors and text input panes now use click-to-focus.
33     ** Improvement: the ACCEPTING-VALUES command table was renamed to
34     ACCEPT-VALUES (as this is the name that the other clim-2 implementation
35     uses)
36     ** Improvement: the CLX backend should no longer cause focus stealing
37 crhodes 1.21 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
38     a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
39 afuchs 1.24 ** Improvement: define-application-frame now allows a :default-initargs
40     option. (This is not exactly a "specification compliance" fix, as
41     d-a-frame is not defined to accept this option.).
42     ** Improvement: menu-choose menus now look a little prettier.
43     ** Improvement: added more styles for bordered-output: :rounded, :ellipse
44     ** Improvement: Toggle button values now default to NIL.
45     ** Improvement: Frame layouts are now inherited from the frame's
46     superclass.
47     ** Improvement: The Lisp Syntax is much improved: now recognizes
48     delimiter characters, and more types of Lambda lists.
49     ** Bug fix: Bezier designs should now draw in the right place in all
50     backends.
51     ** Bug fix: Text in Drei no longer "walks" to the left.
52     ** Bug fix: Drei now has better support for delimiter gestures.
53     ** Bug fix: Partial commands now work better when invoked from the menu.
54    
55 afuchs 1.20
56 afuchs 1.2 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
57     ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
58 dlichteblau 1.3 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
59     *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
60     *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
61 dlichteblau 1.10 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
62 dlichteblau 1.8 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
63     option panes.
64 dlichteblau 1.14 *** Draw text using Pango. (Bug fix: Fixed-width font supported on Windows
65     now. Multiple lines of output in TEXT-SIZE supported now.
66     TEXT-STYLE-FIXED-WIDTH-P works correctly now.)
67 thenriksen 1.5 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").
68 thenriksen 1.9 ** Improvement: Improved the pathname presentation methods considerably.
69 thenriksen 1.11 ** specification compliance: DELETE-GESTURE-NAME function now implemented.
70 thenriksen 1.12 ** specification compliance: PRESENTATION-TYPE-SPECIFIER-P presentaion
71     function now implemented.
72 thenriksen 1.13 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-TABLE-MENU function now
73     implemented.
74     ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-MENU function now
75     implemented.
76 thenriksen 1.15 ** specification compliance: POINTER-PLACE-RUBBER-BAND-LINE* function
77     now implemented.
78     ** specification compliance: POINTER-INPUT-RECTANGLE* function now
79     implemented.

81     implemented.
82 dlichteblau 1.16 ** Improvement: Added font listing support, see section "Fonts and Extended
83     Text Styles" in the manual.
84 dlichteblau 1.17 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
85     To be documented.
86 crhodes 1.18 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
87     on some-of and all-of presentation types)
88 thenriksen 1.19 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
89 afuchs 1.2
90 afuchs 1.1 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.3 "All Souls' Day" relative to 0.9.2:
91     ** backend improvement: The Null backend now registers itself in the
92     server search path
93     ** improvement: with-output-as-gadget now sets the correct cursor
94     position when incremental redisplay is active.
95     ** specification compliance: INVOKE-WITH-NEW-OUTPUT-RECORD's argument
96     list now is the same as the one in the Franz CLIM user guide.
97     ** improvement: The text field cursor is now a solid block again.
98     ** backend improvement: the PostScript backend now outputs correct EPS
99     ** improvement: Graph nodes can now be dragged
100     ** improvement: Possibilities when reading from
101     COMPLETE-FROM-GENERATOR are now sorted alphabetically.
102     ** new experimental backend: gtkairo (loads on SBCL, CMUCL and SCL):
103     Uses GTK+ for gadgets and cairo for rendering graphics.
104     ** Bug fix: incremental-redisplay does no longer leak memory
105     ** improvement: incremental-redisplay is now a little faster
106     ** Bug fix: Invisible text cursors no longer leave a dangling space
107     behind the text output record
108     ** improvement: commands whose names are shadowed in child command
109     tables are now suggested in preference to their parents.
110     ** Bug fix: (setf stream-cursor-position) and output record replay on
111     encapsulating streams work now.
112     ** Bug fix: Invoking command menu items in frames with no interactor
113     works now.
114     ** Bug fix: DESTROY-PORT removes the port even if an error occurs
