1 afuchs 1.37 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.7 relative to 0.9.6:
2    
3    
4 crhodes 1.26 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.6 relative to 0.9.5:
5     ** Bug fix: ESA's help commands are better at finding bindings and
6     describing them
7 crhodes 1.27 ** Bug fix: Some missing methods and functions have been implemented
8     for the Null backend, allowing headless operation for many
9     applications.
10 thenriksen 1.35 ** Specification compliance: READ-BITMAP-FILE and
11     MAKE-PATTERN-FROM-BITMAP-FILE from CLIM 2.2. Includes new example
12     program, IMAGE-VIEWER.
13 thenriksen 1.29 ** Drei improvements
14     *** New redisplay engine that is faster and has more features.
15     *** Support for "views" concept.
16     *** Support for modes a la Emacs "mini-modes".
17 thenriksen 1.31 *** Bug fix: Input prompting now works for directly recursive calls to
18     ACCEPT.
19     *** Improvement: Goal-columns for line movement.
20     *** Improvement: More Emacs-like expression movement for Lisp syntax.
21 thenriksen 1.30 ** Bug fix: label panes no longer have a restrictive maximum width.
22 thenriksen 1.32 ** Bug fix: ellipses with a zero radius no longer cause errors.
23     ** Bug fix: bezier drawing in CLIM-FIG less likely to cause errors.
24     ** Bug fix: restored somewhat working undo in CLIM-FIG.
25 thenriksen 1.33 ** Specification compliance: The :inherit-menu keyword argument to
26     DEFINE-COMMAND-TABLE and MAKE-COMMAND-TABLE is now implemented with
27     CLIM 2.2 semantics. The :keystrokes value is not handled yet.
28 thenriksen 1.34 ** Specification compliance: :PRINTER functions for MENU-CHOOSE are
29     now called with the menu item, not the display object.
30 ahefner 1.36 ** Improvement: Faster drawing and AA text rendering. AA text requires
31     a fix to the Xrender support of CLX, available in Christophe Rhodes's
32     current CLX distribution from darcs.
33     ** Improvement: Look up arbitrary truetype fonts by name via fontconfig.
34     ** New extension: mcclim-truetype: provides a 100% lisp path for
35     AA fonts with CLX using cl-vectors and zpb-ttf, as an alternative
36     to mcclim-freetype.
37     ** Bug fix: correct computation of bounding rectangle after
38     clear-output-record and recompute-extent-for-new-child.
39 crhodes 1.26
40 afuchs 1.20 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.5 relative to 0.9.4:
41 afuchs 1.25 ** Installation: the systems clim-listener, clim-examples,
42 afuchs 1.20 and clouseau can now be loaded without loading the system mcclim
43 afuchs 1.24 first. Users with existing McCLIM installations should use the
44     provided script:
45     ./symlink-asd-files.sh /path/to/asdf-central-registry/
46     ** New extension: tab-layout. This extension allows keeping a stack of panes
47     whose foreground pane is controlled by a tab bar. This layout can be
48     customized in backends and frame managers. For examples, see the
49     gtkairo backend and the pixie frame manager.
50     ** New extension function: SHEET-RGB-IMAGE: makes a screenshot of a sheet
51     in the CLX backend. (Supported on truecolor visuals only for now.)
52     ** New experimental extension: tree-with-cross-edges are an extension to
53     the graph formatter.
54     ** New experimental backend: clim-graphic-forms: native widgets on Windows.
55     This backend is still very experimental (it doesn't run demos yet).
56     ** New inspector feature: The inspector now displays more useful information
57     about hash tables and generic functions.
58     ** Specification compliance: Various layout panes no longer quite as
59     aggressive at eating the space requirements of their children.
60     ** Specification compliance: There is now a rudimentary implementation of
61     NOTIFY-USER
62     ** Usability: Text editors and text input panes now use click-to-focus.
63     ** Improvement: the ACCEPTING-VALUES command table was renamed to
64     ACCEPT-VALUES (as this is the name that the other clim-2 implementation
65     uses)
66     ** Improvement: the CLX backend should no longer cause focus stealing
67 crhodes 1.21 when an application has text-editor panes. This change comes with
68     a rudimentary click-to-focus-keyboard widget policy.
69 afuchs 1.24 ** Improvement: define-application-frame now allows a :default-initargs
70     option. (This is not exactly a "specification compliance" fix, as
71     d-a-frame is not defined to accept this option.).
72     ** Improvement: menu-choose menus now look a little prettier.
73     ** Improvement: added more styles for bordered-output: :rounded, :ellipse
74     ** Improvement: Toggle button values now default to NIL.
75     ** Improvement: Frame layouts are now inherited from the frame's
76     superclass.
77     ** Improvement: The Lisp Syntax is much improved: now recognizes
78     delimiter characters, and more types of Lambda lists.
79     ** Bug fix: Bezier designs should now draw in the right place in all
80     backends.
81     ** Bug fix: Text in Drei no longer "walks" to the left.
82     ** Bug fix: Drei now has better support for delimiter gestures.
83     ** Bug fix: Partial commands now work better when invoked from the menu.
84    
85 afuchs 1.20
86 afuchs 1.2 * Changes in mcclim-0.9.4 relative to 0.9.3:
87     ** cleanup: removed the obsolete system.lisp file.
88 dlichteblau 1.3 ** backend improvements: Gtkairo
89     *** Double buffering is now supported (fixes disappearing widgets on Windows).
90     *** X errors no longer terminate the lisp process.
91 dlichteblau 1.10 *** Some bugfixes, including CMUCL support and better key event handling.
92 dlichteblau 1.8 *** Native implementation of context menus, list panes, label panes, and
93     option panes.
94 dlichteblau 1.14 *** Draw text using Pango. (Bug fix: Fixed-width font supported on Windows
95     now. Multiple lines of output in TEXT-SIZE supported now.
96     TEXT-STYLE-FIXED-WIDTH-P works correctly now.)
97 thenriksen 1.5 ** Improvement: Added new editor substrate ("Drei").
98 thenriksen 1.9 ** Improvement: Improved the pathname presentation methods considerably.
99 thenriksen 1.11 ** specification compliance: DELETE-GESTURE-NAME function now implemented.

111     implemented.

113     Text Styles" in the manual.
114 dlichteblau 1.17 ** Improvement: Added support for bezier splines (Robert Strandh).
115     To be documented.
116 crhodes 1.18 ** better PRESENTATION-SUBTYPEP (more likely to give the right answer
117     on some-of and all-of presentation types)
118 thenriksen 1.19 ** Improvement: M-n/M-p gestures for navigating presentation histories.
119 afuchs 1.2
