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 * 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 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
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 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
29 a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
30 ** 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.
47 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
48 ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
49 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
50 *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
51 *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
52 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
53 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
54 option panes.
55 *** 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 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").
59 ** Improvement: Improved the pathname presentation methods considerably.
60 ** specification compliance: DELETE-GESTURE-NAME function now implemented.
61 ** specification compliance: PRESENTATION-TYPE-SPECIFIER-P presentaion
62 function now implemented.
63 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-TABLE-MENU function now
64 implemented.
65 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-MENU function now
66 implemented.
67 ** 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 ** Improvement: Added font listing support, see section "Fonts and Extended
74 Text Styles" in the manual.
75 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
76 To be documented.
77 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
78 on some-of and all-of presentation types)
79 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
81 * 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
107 ** Bug fix: make-process now sets the process name on SBCL
108 ** specification compliance: MENU-CHOOSE now supports almost all
109 features demanded in the CLIM 2.0 specification.
110 ** improvement: new and improved ACCEPT presentation method for
111 expressions on interactive streams.
112 ** specification compliance: LOOKUP-KEYSTROKE-ITEM no longer accepts
113 the :errorp argument.
114 ** Bug fix: incremental redisplay no longer breaks on output records
115 that had no children.
116 ** Bug fix: arrow head sizes are now transformed along with the line thickness.
117 ** improvement: resizing a viewport's child will now move the viewport's focus.
118 ** improvement: loading mcclim.asd no longer shows a code deletion note on SBCL.
119 ** new demo: logic-cube
120 ** compatibility: Add support for post-1.0 openmcl, and for Allegro
121 Common Lisp 8.0 (ansi mode).
122 ** new example application showing use of CLIM views.
