Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.30: +4 -0 lines
Added some more things 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 thenriksen 1.31 *** Bug fix: Input prompting now works for directly recursive calls to
14     ACCEPT.
15     *** Improvement: Goal-columns for line movement.
16     *** Improvement: More Emacs-like expression movement for Lisp syntax.
17 thenriksen 1.30 ** Bug fix: label panes no longer have a restrictive maximum width.
18 crhodes 1.26
19 afuchs 1.20 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
20 afuchs 1.25 ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, clim-examples,
21 afuchs 1.20 and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
22 afuchs 1.24 first. Users with existing McCLIM installations should use the
23     provided script:
24     ./symlink-asd-files.sh /path/to/asdf-central-registry/
25     ** New extension: tab-layout. This extension allows keeping a stack of panes
26     whose foreground pane is controlled by a tab bar. This layout can be
27     customized in backends and frame managers. For examples, see the
28     gtkairo backend and the pixie frame manager.
29     ** New extension function: SHEET-RGB-IMAGE: makes a screenshot of a sheet
30     in the CLX backend. (Supported on truecolor visuals only for now.)
31     ** New experimental extension: tree-with-cross-edges are an extension to
32     the graph formatter.
33     ** New experimental backend: clim-graphic-forms: native widgets on Windows.
34     This backend is still very experimental (it doesn't run demos yet).
35     ** New inspector feature: The inspector now displays more useful information
36     about hash tables and generic functions.
37     ** Specification compliance: Various layout panes no longer quite as
38     aggressive at eating the space requirements of their children.
39     ** Specification compliance: There is now a rudimentary implementation of
40     NOTIFY-USER
41     ** Usability: Text editors and text input panes now use click-to-focus.
42     ** Improvement: the ACCEPTING-VALUES command table was renamed to
43     ACCEPT-VALUES (as this is the name that the other clim-2 implementation
44     uses)
45     ** Improvement: the CLX backend should no longer cause focus stealing
46 crhodes 1.21 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
47     a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
48 afuchs 1.24 ** Improvement: define-application-frame now allows a :default-initargs
49     option. (This is not exactly a "specification compliance" fix, as
50     d-a-frame is not defined to accept this option.).
51     ** Improvement: menu-choose menus now look a little prettier.
52     ** Improvement: added more styles for bordered-output: :rounded, :ellipse
53     ** Improvement: Toggle button values now default to NIL.
54     ** Improvement: Frame layouts are now inherited from the frame's
55     superclass.
56     ** Improvement: The Lisp Syntax is much improved: now recognizes
57     delimiter characters, and more types of Lambda lists.
58     ** Bug fix: Bezier designs should now draw in the right place in all
59     backends.
60     ** Bug fix: Text in Drei no longer "walks" to the left.
61     ** Bug fix: Drei now has better support for delimiter gestures.
62     ** Bug fix: Partial commands now work better when invoked from the menu.
63    
64 afuchs 1.20
65 afuchs 1.2 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
66     ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
67 dlichteblau 1.3 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
68     *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
69     *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
70 dlichteblau 1.10 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
71 dlichteblau 1.8 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
72     option panes.
73 dlichteblau 1.14 *** Draw text using Pango. (Bug fix: Fixed-width font supported on Windows
74     now. Multiple lines of output in TEXT-SIZE supported now.
75     TEXT-STYLE-FIXED-WIDTH-P works correctly now.)
76 thenriksen 1.5 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").

92     Text Styles" in the manual.
93 dlichteblau 1.17 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
94     To be documented.
95 crhodes 1.18 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
96     on some-of and all-of presentation types)
97 thenriksen 1.19 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
98 afuchs 1.2
99 afuchs 1.1 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.3 "All Souls' Day" relative to 0.9.2:

102     ** improvement: with-output-as-gadget now sets the correct cursor

104     ** specification compliance: INVOKE-WITH-NEW-OUTPUT-RECORD's argument
105     list now is the same as the one in the Franz CLIM user guide.
