Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.28: +4 -0 lines
Added Drei stuff 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 thenriksen 1.29 ** Drei improvements
10     *** New redisplay engine that is faster and has more features.
11     *** Support for "views" concept.
12     *** Support for modes a la Emacs "mini-modes".
13 crhodes 1.26
14 afuchs 1.20 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
15 afuchs 1.25 ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, clim-examples,
16 afuchs 1.20 and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
17 afuchs 1.24 first. Users with existing McCLIM installations should use the
18     provided script:
19     ./symlink-asd-files.sh /path/to/asdf-central-registry/
20     ** New extension: tab-layout. This extension allows keeping a stack of panes
21     whose foreground pane is controlled by a tab bar. This layout can be
22     customized in backends and frame managers. For examples, see the
23     gtkairo backend and the pixie frame manager.
24     ** New extension function: SHEET-RGB-IMAGE: makes a screenshot of a sheet
25     in the CLX backend. (Supported on truecolor visuals only for now.)
26     ** New experimental extension: tree-with-cross-edges are an extension to
27     the graph formatter.
28     ** New experimental backend: clim-graphic-forms: native widgets on Windows.
29     This backend is still very experimental (it doesn't run demos yet).
30     ** New inspector feature: The inspector now displays more useful information
31     about hash tables and generic functions.
32     ** Specification compliance: Various layout panes no longer quite as
33     aggressive at eating the space requirements of their children.
34     ** Specification compliance: There is now a rudimentary implementation of
35     NOTIFY-USER
36     ** Usability: Text editors and text input panes now use click-to-focus.
37     ** Improvement: the ACCEPTING-VALUES command table was renamed to
38     ACCEPT-VALUES (as this is the name that the other clim-2 implementation
39     uses)
40     ** Improvement: the CLX backend should no longer cause focus stealing
41 crhodes 1.21 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
42     a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
43 afuchs 1.24 ** Improvement: define-application-frame now allows a :default-initargs
44     option. (This is not exactly a "specification compliance" fix, as
45     d-a-frame is not defined to accept this option.).
46     ** Improvement: menu-choose menus now look a little prettier.
47     ** Improvement: added more styles for bordered-output: :rounded, :ellipse
48     ** Improvement: Toggle button values now default to NIL.
49     ** Improvement: Frame layouts are now inherited from the frame's
50     superclass.
51     ** Improvement: The Lisp Syntax is much improved: now recognizes
52     delimiter characters, and more types of Lambda lists.
53     ** Bug fix: Bezier designs should now draw in the right place in all
54     backends.
55     ** Bug fix: Text in Drei no longer "walks" to the left.
56     ** Bug fix: Drei now has better support for delimiter gestures.
57     ** Bug fix: Partial commands now work better when invoked from the menu.
58    
59 afuchs 1.20
60 afuchs 1.2 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
61     ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
62 dlichteblau 1.3 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
63     *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
64     *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
65 dlichteblau 1.10 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
66 dlichteblau 1.8 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
67     option panes.
68 dlichteblau 1.14 *** Draw text using Pango. (Bug fix: Fixed-width font supported on Windows
69     now. Multiple lines of output in TEXT-SIZE supported now.
70     TEXT-STYLE-FIXED-WIDTH-P works correctly now.)
71 thenriksen 1.5 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").
72 thenriksen 1.9 ** Improvement: Improved the pathname presentation methods considerably.
73 thenriksen 1.11 ** specification compliance: DELETE-GESTURE-NAME function now implemented.
74 thenriksen 1.12 ** specification compliance: PRESENTATION-TYPE-SPECIFIER-P presentaion
75     function now implemented.
76 thenriksen 1.13 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-TABLE-MENU function now
77     implemented.
78     ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-MENU function now
79     implemented.
80 thenriksen 1.15 ** specification compliance: POINTER-PLACE-RUBBER-BAND-LINE* function
81     now implemented.
82     ** specification compliance: POINTER-INPUT-RECTANGLE* function now
83     implemented.

85     implemented.

87     Text Styles" in the manual.
88 dlichteblau 1.17 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
89     To be documented.
90 crhodes 1.18 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
91     on some-of and all-of presentation types)
92 thenriksen 1.19 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
93 afuchs 1.2
94 afuchs 1.1 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.3 "All Souls' Day" relative to 0.9.2:
95     ** backend improvement: The Null backend now registers itself in the
96     server search path
97     ** improvement: with-output-as-gadget now sets the correct cursor
98     position when incremental redisplay is active.
99     ** specification compliance: INVOKE-WITH-NEW-OUTPUT-RECORD's argument
100     list now is the same as the one in the Franz CLIM user guide.

112     ** improvement: commands whose names are shadowed in child command

114     ** Bug fix: (setf stream-cursor-position) and output record replay on
115     encapsulating streams work now.
116     ** Bug fix: Invoking command menu items in frames with no interactor
117     works now.
