Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.31: +3 -0 lines
Added mentions of some more bug fixes to NEWS.
1 * 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 ** Bug fix: Some missing methods and functions have been implemented
5 for the Null backend, allowing headless operation for many
6 applications.
7 ** New extension: MCCLIM-IMAGES. This extension makes it easy to use
8 McCLIM for loading and displaying images of various formats.
9 ** 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 *** 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 ** Bug fix: label panes no longer have a restrictive maximum width.
18 ** 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
22 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
23 ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, clim-examples,
24 and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
25 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 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
50 a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
51 ** 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.

67
68 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
69 ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
70 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
71 *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
72 *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
73 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
74 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
75 option panes.
76 *** 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 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").
80 ** Improvement: Improved the pathname presentation methods considerably.
81 ** specification compliance: DELETE-GESTURE-NAME function now implemented.
82 ** specification compliance: PRESENTATION-TYPE-SPECIFIER-P presentaion
83 function now implemented.
84 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-TABLE-MENU function now
85 implemented.
86 ** specification compliance: DISPLAY-COMMAND-MENU function now
87 implemented.
88 ** specification compliance: POINTER-PLACE-RUBBER-BAND-LINE* function
89 now implemented.
90 ** specification compliance: POINTER-INPUT-RECTANGLE* function now
91 implemented.
92 ** specification compliance: POINTER-INPUT-RECTANGLE function now
93 implemented.
94 ** Improvement: Added font listing support, see section "Fonts and Extended
95 Text Styles" in the manual.
96 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
97 To be documented.
98 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
99 on some-of and all-of presentation types)
100 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
101
102 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.3 "All Souls' Day" relative to 0.9.2:
103 ** backend improvement: The Null backend now registers itself in the
104 server search path
105 ** improvement: with-output-as-gadget now sets the correct cursor
106 position when incremental redisplay is active.
107 ** specification compliance: INVOKE-WITH-NEW-OUTPUT-RECORD's argument
108 list now is the same as the one in the Franz CLIM user guide.
109 ** improvement: The text field cursor is now a solid block again.
110 ** backend improvement: the PostScript backend now outputs correct EPS
111 ** improvement: Graph nodes can now be dragged
112 ** improvement: Possibilities when reading from
113 COMPLETE-FROM-GENERATOR are now sorted alphabetically.
114 ** new experimental backend: gtkairo (loads on SBCL, CMUCL and SCL):
115 Uses GTK+ for gadgets and cairo for rendering graphics.
116 ** Bug fix: incremental-redisplay does no longer leak memory
117 ** improvement: incremental-redisplay is now a little faster
118 ** Bug fix: Invisible text cursors no longer leave a dangling space
119 behind the text output record
120 ** improvement: commands whose names are shadowed in child command
121 tables are now suggested in preference to their parents.
122 ** Bug fix: (setf stream-cursor-position) and output record replay on
123 encapsulating streams work now.
124 ** Bug fix: Invoking command menu items in frames with no interactor
125 works now.
126 ** Bug fix: DESTROY-PORT removes the port even if an error occurs
127 while closing the port
128 ** Bug fix: make-process now sets the process name on SBCL
129 ** specification compliance: MENU-CHOOSE now supports almost all
130 features demanded in the CLIM 2.0 specification.
131 ** improvement: new and improved ACCEPT presentation method for
132 expressions on interactive streams.
133 ** specification compliance: LOOKUP-KEYSTROKE-ITEM no longer accepts
134 the :errorp argument.
135 ** Bug fix: incremental redisplay no longer breaks on output records
136 that had no children.
137 ** Bug fix: arrow head sizes are now transformed along with the line thickness.
138 ** improvement: resizing a viewport's child will now move the viewport's focus.
139 ** improvement: loading mcclim.asd no longer shows a code deletion note on SBCL.
140 ** new demo: logic-cube
141 ** compatibility: Add support for post-1.0 openmcl, and for Allegro
142 Common Lisp 8.0 (ansi mode).
143 ** new example application showing use of CLIM views.
