Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.31: +3 -0 lines
Added mentions of some more bug fixes 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 thenriksen 1.32 ** Bug fix: ellipses with a zero radius no longer cause errors.
19     ** Bug fix: bezier drawing in CLIM-FIG less likely to cause errors.
20     ** Bug fix: restored somewhat working undo in CLIM-FIG.
21 crhodes 1.26
22 afuchs 1.20 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
23 afuchs 1.25 ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, clim-examples,
24 afuchs 1.20 and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
25 afuchs 1.24 first. Users with existing McCLIM installations should use the
26     provided script:
27     ./symlink-asd-files.sh /path/to/asdf-central-registry/
28     ** New extension: tab-layout. This extension allows keeping a stack of panes
29     whose foreground pane is controlled by a tab bar. This layout can be
30     customized in backends and frame managers. For examples, see the
31     gtkairo backend and the pixie frame manager.
32     ** New extension function: SHEET-RGB-IMAGE: makes a screenshot of a sheet
33     in the CLX backend. (Supported on truecolor visuals only for now.)
34     ** New experimental extension: tree-with-cross-edges are an extension to
35     the graph formatter.
36     ** New experimental backend: clim-graphic-forms: native widgets on Windows.
37     This backend is still very experimental (it doesn't run demos yet).
38     ** New inspector feature: The inspector now displays more useful information
39     about hash tables and generic functions.
40     ** Specification compliance: Various layout panes no longer quite as
41     aggressive at eating the space requirements of their children.
42     ** Specification compliance: There is now a rudimentary implementation of
43     NOTIFY-USER
44     ** Usability: Text editors and text input panes now use click-to-focus.
45     ** Improvement: the ACCEPTING-VALUES command table was renamed to
46     ACCEPT-VALUES (as this is the name that the other clim-2 implementation
47     uses)
48     ** Improvement: the CLX backend should no longer cause focus stealing
49 crhodes 1.21 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
50     a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
51 afuchs 1.24 ** Improvement: define-application-frame now allows a :default-initargs
52     option. (This is not exactly a "specification compliance" fix, as
53     d-a-frame is not defined to accept this option.).
54     ** Improvement: menu-choose menus now look a little prettier.
55     ** Improvement: added more styles for bordered-output: :rounded, :ellipse
56     ** Improvement: Toggle button values now default to NIL.
57     ** Improvement: Frame layouts are now inherited from the frame's
58     superclass.
59     ** Improvement: The Lisp Syntax is much improved: now recognizes
60     delimiter characters, and more types of Lambda lists.
61     ** Bug fix: Bezier designs should now draw in the right place in all
62     backends.
63     ** Bug fix: Text in Drei no longer "walks" to the left.
64     ** Bug fix: Drei now has better support for delimiter gestures.
65     ** Bug fix: Partial commands now work better when invoked from the menu.
66    
67 afuchs 1.20
68 afuchs 1.2 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
69     ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
70 dlichteblau 1.3 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
71     *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
72     *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
73 dlichteblau 1.10 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
74 dlichteblau 1.8 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
75     option panes.
76 dlichteblau 1.14 *** Draw text using Pango. (Bug fix: Fixed-width font supported on Windows
77     now. Multiple lines of output in TEXT-SIZE supported now.
78     TEXT-STYLE-FIXED-WIDTH-P works correctly now.)
79 thenriksen 1.5 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").

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