0001 Changes from Konversation 1.7.6 to 1.7.7: 0002 Konversation v1.7.7 is a small translation update & bugfix release improving the 0003 icons in the nick list with SVG options for HiDPI support and a new variant of 0004 the default nick icon theme to work with dark UI colors. 0005 0006 * Fixed outdated color of existing nick items in the list after system color change 0007 * Fixed accidental large potential nick sorting timeout 0008 * Fixed tweak input box size to stop the text jumping around when selected 0009 * Fixed unneeded and potentially encoding switching re-encoding of key 0010 * Fixed disconnect for wrong slot for Chat::/TransferRecv::sendReverseAck 0011 * Support SVG nick icon themes, switch default to SVG 0012 * Add dark variant of default nick icon theme 0013 0014 Changes from Konversation 1.7.5 to 1.7.6: 0015 Konversation v1.7.6 is a small translation update & bugfix release fixing 0016 the build with Qt >= 5.13 and polishing the configuration dialog a bit. 0017 0018 * Fixed loading of nick icon theme to deal with multiple copies 0019 * Fixed configuration dialogs to have consistent indentation of 0020 subordinate options as well as spacings between labels & fields 0021 * Fixed building against Qt 5.15. 0022 * Fixed building against Qt 5.13. 0023 0024 Changes from Konversation 1.7.4 to 1.7.5: 0025 Konversation v1.7.5 is a small bugfix release fixing the build with Qt 0026 5.11. 0027 0028 * Fixed building against Qt 5.11. 0029 0030 Changes from Konversation 1.7.3 to 1.7.4: 0031 Konversation v1.7.4 is a small bugfix release addressing a font settings 0032 regression that crept into v1.7.3. 0033 0034 * Fixed a bug causing the size of a custom chat text view font set via 0035 the configuration dialog to be ignored. A font size modification done 0036 via the Enlarge/Shrink Font Size actions is now applied on top of 0037 the configured size (or the system default font size, respectively). 0038 0039 Changes from Konversation 1.7.2 to 1.7.3: 0040 While the Konversation team is currently hard at work on the upcoming 0041 major version 2.0 (which will debut an all-new UI and Matrix support, 0042 and pave the way for mobile versions), we continue to support users of 0043 the stable version 1.7 with maintenance releases. Konversation v1.7.3 0044 re-enables the lost channel mode buttons, adds minor UI refinements and 0045 includes fixes for several annoyances and crashes. Most notable in this 0046 regard are fixed color scheme handling for the treelist version of the 0047 tab bar, and crash fixes in IRC v3 extended-join and IRC color 0048 formatting code parsing. 0049 0050 * Added a copy action to the context menu of nicknames in the chat text 0051 view. 0052 * Re-enabled channel mode buttons. 0053 * Reduced emission of Unicode directional control characters in the chat 0054 text view. Unnecessary control characters could sometimes cause problems 0055 with copying text from Konversation and pasting it into terminal 0056 applications, confusing them. 0057 * Fixed handling of nick and channel prefix characters potentially using 0058 the same set of symbols. 0059 * Removed redundant escaping of angle brackets in GECOS ("realname") field. 0060 * The nickname combobox will no longer change the nickname to the current 0061 value whenvever it loses focus. 0062 * Fixed color scheme handling in the treelist version on the tab bar, 0063 fixing an issue where the background and text color of the selected 0064 item would sometimes be the same, rendering the item unreadable. 0065 * Fixed handling of IRC URLs for channels starting with more than one #, 0066 addressing a percent-encoding problem with bookmarks of them. 0067 * Fixed custom chat text view font family reverting to system default font 0068 family upon using the increase/decrease font size actions. 0069 * Fixed chat text view font size adjusted via the increase/decrease font 0070 size actions reverting to configuration default when OK'ing the config 0071 dialog. 0072 * Fixed incorrect checkbox states in the Channel Invite dialog. 0073 * Fixed a crash in IRC v3 extended-join parsing. 0074 * Fixed a crash in parsing IRC color formatting codes. 0075 * Fixed a minor memory leak in the Join Channel dialog code. 0076 * Removed unnecessary nickname list debug message sent as warning. 0077 0078 Changes from Konversation 1.7.1 to 1.7.2: 0079 Konversation v1.7.2 is a repackage of v1.7.1 with incomplete and 0080 badly maintained translations removed. They were accidentally included 0081 with the v1.7.1 release. There are no code changes in this release. 0082 0083 Changes from Konversation 1.7 to 1.7.1: 0084 Konversation v1.7.1 is a maintenance release that addresses issues with 0085 some of the new features introduced in the last major release, such as 0086 SASL EXTERNAL and server-time support, along with other minor fixes. As 0087 per usual this maintenance release also ships the latest round of 0088 translation updates. 0089 0090 * Fixed requesting the znc.in/server-time-iso capability from the server. 0091 * Fixed SASL EXTERNAL authentication without an account name set in the 0092 Identity settings. 0093 * Fixed clicking on nickname links containing the ` character. 0094 * Fixed the Highlight page in the Configure Konversation dialog not 0095 enabling/disabling the Apply button correctly. 0096 * Minor cleanups in application metadata setup code. 0097 0098 Changes from Konversation 1.7-rc1 to 1.7: 0099 Konversation v1.7 is a major feature release focusing on greatly expanded 0100 protocol support, with newly-added support for many more IRC v3 0101 extensions and the much-requested support for SASL EXTERNAL and 0102 'server-time'. Many bugfixes and cleanups along with reinstated features 0103 initially lost in the first Frameworks 5-based release series v1.6.x are 0104 included as well. Finally, the handbook has been thoroughly refreshed in 0105 this release, and building and running on macOS and Windows have seen 0106 several fixes. 0107 0108 * Two-finger scroll on the vertical channel list is now less sensitive. 0109 * Fixed execution of bundled scripts showing an error about locating 0110 translation files when running on a system without kde4-config installed. 0111 * Fixed a bug in executable command line parsing for passed URLs. 0112 * Fixed Konversation failing to start on Windows systems without D-Bus 0113 (it would previously exit if it failed to initialize its D-Bus service). 0114 * Ported from deprecated KDE Frameworks APIs to 5.24+ API (v1.7 requires 0115 Frameworks 5.25 or higher). 0116 0117 Changes from Konversation 1.6.2 to 1.7-rc1: 0118 Konversation v1.7-rc1 is the first release candidate for the next major 0119 version of Konversation. The focus of the v1.7 release is on greatly 0120 expanded protocol support, with newly-added support for many more IRC v3 0121 extensions and the much-requested support for SASL EXTERNAL and 0122 'server-time'. Many bugfixes and cleanups along with reinstated features 0123 initially lost in the first Frameworks 5-based release series v1.6.x are 0124 included as well. Finally, the handbook has been thoroughly refreshed in 0125 this release and building on Mac and Windows has seen several fixes. 0126 0127 * Improved support for CAP negotiation. 0128 * Output for CAP LS and CAP LIST is now shown in the server status view. 0129 * Added support for IRCv3 CAP MULTI-PREFIX. 0130 * Added support for IRCv3 CAP AWAY-NOTIFY. 0131 * Added support for IRCv3 CAP ACCOUNT-NOTIFY. 0132 * Added support for IRCv3 CAP EXTENDED-JOIN. 0133 * Added support for IRCv3 CAP USERHOST-IN-NAMES. 0134 * Added support for extended WHO. 0135 * Added support for server-time and message tags. 0136 * Added support for znc.in/server-time-iso, making buffer playback from 0137 ZNC much nicer. 0138 * Added support for the SASL EXTERNAL authentication mechanism, e.g. needed 0139 for using Tor with freenode. 0140 * Redesigned search bar in chat views. 0141 * Added support for font zooming to chat views. 0142 * Improved bi-di text handling in chat views. 0143 * The --restart command line argument works again. 0144 * Fixed command line argument parsing when Konversation is already running 0145 * Fixed tab completion not working when pressing tab after a full existing 0146 nickname as prefix. 0147 * Fixed the topic editor not updating when the topic changes. 0148 * Fixed nickname links including the pipe character. 0149 * Fixed the Invite dialog not closing on OK. 0150 * Fixed angle bracket display in OSD message bubbles. 0151 * Fixes to core protocol handling, e.g. in prefix parsing. 0152 * Fixed crash on close when the nick menu has been shown. 0153 * Fixed crash on quit. 0154 * Fixed crash when closing views. 0155 * Fixed crash in DCC resume dialogs without a Retry button. 0156 * Fixed incorrect icon for the global away action. 0157 * Minor UI layout cleanups, e.g. in the Behavior -> Chat Window settings page 0158 and fixes to tooltips. 0159 * Code cleanups, e.g. removal of unused settings and related code paths, 0160 porting away from deprecated API, and more. 0161 * Overhauled and corrected handbook & refreshed handbook screenshots to 0162 Frameworks 5 version. 0163 * Build fixes for Windows (MSVC compatibility and winsock linking). 0164 * The Windows and Mac builds now have app icons. 0165 * Improved code portability by using different byte swapping routines. 0166 * Updated AppStream metadata. 0167 * Konversation now depends on Qt 5.5+ and KDE Frameworks 5.25+. 0168 0169 Changes from Konversation 1.6.1 to 1.6.2: 0170 Konversation 1.6.2 is a hotfix release that fixes an unfortunate severe 0171 crash condition that crept into 1.6.1. 0172 0173 * Fixed a bug causing various operations on server list data to crash, e.g. 0174 pressing "Edit" on a server sub-item in the Server List dialog. 0175 * Translations for AppData metadata added in v1.6.1. 0176 0177 Changes from Konversation 1.6 to 1.6.1: 0178 Konversation 1.6.1 is a maintenance release that contains various bug fixes 0179 for the stable KDE Frameworks 5-based version of Konversation. 0180 0181 * Added an option to allow a server to bypass the global proxy settings. 0182 * Fixed a crash when changing the Qt style engine. 0183 * Fixed a crash when running "/exec -showpath" with no script name. 0184 * Fixed notification events for DCC Chats not working. 0185 * Fixed crash when closing the DCC Status tab. 0186 * Fixed crashes with the ISO-2022-JP encoding. 0187 * Fixed the "Close All Open Queries" action not working properly. 0188 * Minor UI polish, e.g. the margin under the nicklist when the Quick Button 0189 grid is disabled or emtpy. 0190 * Fixed missing icons on the Next/Previous buttons in the search bar. 0191 * On screens to small to fit Konversation's configuration dialog, the 0192 dialog will now show scrollbars around its content instead of the dialog 0193 buttons being forced off-screen. 0194 * Konversation now sets its window icon in a way that causes a hi-res icon 0195 to be available in window switchers such as Plasma's Alt+Tab UI. 0196 * Removed the spell checking language submenu from the context menu of the 0197 input bar - KDE Frameworks 5 now contains this upstream, leading to two 0198 submenus. 0199 * Fixed installing the Oxygen nickname list theme. 0200 * Fixed changes to the tab bar font's font weight being applied to the chat 0201 text area. 0202 * Minor changes to tooltips to support the Wayland windowing system better. 0203 * Fixed the Windows build. 0204 * Added KCrash (DrKonqi) support. 0205 * Improved support for the KDE Kiosk framework, fixing checks for the 0206 "shell_command" privilege. 0207 * Added AppData metadata for app stores. 0208 0209 Changes from Konversation 1.6.1-beta1 to 1.6: 0210 Konversation 1.6 is the first stable release of Konversation built on the 0211 new KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt 5 library sets, improving integration into many 0212 desktop environments, including Plasma Desktop 5, and adding first support 0213 for hi-dpi scaling. In addition to porting and reworking things for hi-dpi 0214 scaling, a number of behavior improvements and bug fixes were implemented, 0215 particularly improved nickname selection behavior at connection time and 0216 better layout behavior for the channel topic area. 0217 0218 Unfortunately the 1.6 release removes support for integrating with the KDE 0219 Address Book, as the interfaces Konversation was using to achieve this were 0220 dropped from KDE Frameworks. A replacement is in the works in the form of 0221 the new KPeople library, which we intend to use in a future release. Using 0222 KPeople, Konversation will then be able to tightly integrate with various 0223 contact management-related features in Plasma Desktop. 0224 0225 * Improved support for character set aliases via KCharsets. 0226 * Improved behavior when reconnecting and Konversation had to use an 0227 alternate nickname for the previous connection because the preferred 0228 nickname was already in use: Konversation will now try harder to go back 0229 to nicknames sorted earlier in the identity's nickname list, instead of 0230 advancing down the list without checking whether earlier nicknames have 0231 become available again. 0232 * Konversation will no longer give up trying to connect when only a single 0233 nickname is configured and not available at connection time. Instead, it 0234 will do as many reconnection attempts as allowed by user configuration. 0235 * Fixed incorrect size calculations for the channel topic text label causing 0236 cut-off text and unwanted collapsing of the topic area. 0237 * Fixed a bug causing auto-connect not to connect to networks in the order 0238 they are listed in the Server List dialog. 0239 * Fixed a bug causing the main window not to be raised when an Konversation 0240 is started an additional time and the window is currently minimized. 0241 * The default tabs position is now 'Left', i.e. the treelist version of the 0242 tab bar. 0243 * Tabs can now be reordered by drag and drop again. 0244 * Fixed various rendering issues in the treelist version of the tab bar and 0245 made it high-DPI scaling-capable. 0246 * Fixed a bug causing Channel List tabs not to be sorted below the status 0247 tab of the server they belong to in the treelist version of the tab bar, 0248 and corrupt its contents. 0249 * Fixed margins in the Edit Network dialog. 0250 * Improved wording and correctness of several interface messages. 0251 * Fixed a bug causing some interface messages and labels not to use their 0252 translated versions when running with a language other than US English. 0253 * Fixed a bug causing Konversation not to generate default command aliases 0254 for installed scripts at startup anymore. 0255 * The bundled 'cmd' script now defaults to trying to decode command output 0256 as Utf-8 even when run on Python 2. 0257 * Fixed the bundled 'bug' script not working. 0258 * Fixed naming of bundled icons. 0259 * Konversation now opts into Qt's high-DPI pixmap handling. 0260 * Adjusted build system to use co-installable version of qca-qt5. 0261 * Fixed build failures on Windows. 0262 0263 Changes from Konversation 1.5.1 to 1.6-beta1: 0264 Konversation 1.6-beta1 is the first release of Konversation built on the new 0265 KDE Frameworks 5 and Qt 5 library sets, and intended to allow you to help us 0266 test and shake out the remaining issues in the ported code. With stability 0267 despite many changes under the hood as the primary goal, the 1.6 release will 0268 not bring any new features, though Frameworks 5 and Qt 5 offer a host of 0269 efficiency improvements over the old stack and will enable us to support 0270 hi-dpi scaling and Wayland going forward. 0271 0272 Known issues in this beta include a lack of addressbook integration support 0273 (the needed Frameworks dependencies have not yet been released), drag and 0274 drop support for tabs being disabled, and minor visual polish issues, 0275 including some visual assets not having been updated to match KDE's new 0276 "Breeze" visual identity yet. We expect to resolve these issues in upcoming 0277 releases. 0278 0279 * Konversation now depends on KDE Frameworks v5.2.0 and Qt v5.3.0. 0280 * The default nickname list theme has been updated to KDE's new Breeze visual 0281 identity. 0282 * Notification events now have non-generic titles to prevent Plasma Desktop 5 0283 from merging events from different sources. 0284 * Fixed a bug causing the "Focus Input Bar" action to be enabled/disabled at 0285 incorrect times. 0286 0287 Changes from 1.5 to 1.5.1: 0288 Konversation 1.5.1 is a maintenance release containing only bug fixes. The 0289 included changes address several minor behavioral defects and a low-risk DoS 0290 security defect in the Blowfish ECB support. The KDE Platform version depen- 0291 dency has increased to v4.9.0 to gain access to newer Qt socket transport 0292 security flags. 0293 0294 * Fixed a bug causing wildcards in command alias replacement patterns not to 0295 be expanded. 0296 * Fixed a bug causing auto-joining of channels not starting in # or & to some- 0297 times fail because the auto-join command was generated before we got the 0298 CHANTYPES pronouncement by the server. 0299 * Added a size sanity check for incoming Blowfish ECB blocks. The blind 0300 assumption of incoming blocks being the expected 12 bytes could lead to a 0301 crash or up to 11 byte information leak due to an out-of-bounds read. This 0302 fixes CVE-2014-8483. 0303 * Enabling SSL/TLS support for connections will now advertise the protocols 0304 Qt considers secure by default, instead of being hardcoded to TLSv1. 0305 * Fixed the bundled 'sysinfo' script not coping with empty lines in 0306 /etc/os-release. 0307 * Made disk space info in the bundled 'sysinfo' script more robust by forcing 0308 the C locale for 'df'. 0309 * Added an audio player type hint for Cantata to the bundled 'media' script. 0310 * Fixed some minor comparison logic errors turned up by static analysis. 0311 * Konversation now depends on KDE Platform v4.9.0 or higher. 0312 0313 0314 Changes from 1.5-rc2 to 1.5: 0315 Konversation 1.5 adds numerous major features over the previous stable release. 0316 Of particular note are support for SASL and client certificate authentication, 0317 all-new topic management UI, overhauled authentication UI in the Identities 0318 dialog, per-tab spell-checking language settings, user-configurable nick context 0319 menu entries, mouse spring-loading on tabs, all-new versions of major bundled 0320 scripts and improved Ignore and Watched Nicknames systems. Many under-the-hood 0321 changes to improve codec support and general performance, along with the usual 0322 slew of bug fixes all over, further sweeten the deal. Don't miss out on reading 0323 about various other new features and more fixes in the full changelogs since 0324 version 1.4, too! 0325 0326 * Expanded interface translations. 0327 0328 0329 Changes from 1.5-rc1 to 1.5-rc2: 0330 After a (too) long wait, Konversation 1.5-rc2 is hopefully our final bid for 0331 your aid in assuring the quality of a now-impending final release. Quite a few 0332 gnarly bugs have fallen since rc1; some of them long-standing, others were 0333 introduced along with the features that made their debut in the preceding test 0334 release. Of particular interest to many users will be robustness improvements 0335 in the Watched Nicks system and the lifting of certain restrictions on Unicode 0336 support that had been in place as a by-product of supporting older, defective 0337 Qt versions. See the changelog for more details! 0338 0339 * Fixed a bug that could cause the Watched Nicks system to report all nicknames 0340 as offline if the Watched Nicks tab had been opened prior to a reconnect, even 0341 if that was not the case. 0342 * Fixed a bug where a URL with IRC Color markups caused to show colors, even if 0343 'Allow Colored Text in IRC Messages' was disabled. 0344 * Fixed a bug where spaces in the path to the pre-connect shell command were 0345 handled incorrectly. Tilde expansion now occurs as well. 0346 * Clicking a channel link starting with more than one # character would join a 0347 channel starting with one # too few; this has been fixed. 0348 * Fixed auto-replace not being applied to messages that are sent from the 0349 Large Paste Warning dialog. 0350 * Made the action to manually apply Auto Replace work in the Paste Editor 0351 as well. 0352 * Fixed irc(s):// URL support registration in KDE 4.9.3+ (kdelibs versions 4.9.3 0353 and higher give precedence to .desktop file x-scheme-handler MIME type regis- 0354 tration over .protocol files installed by an app, but Konversation did not 0355 announce URL support via an %u expando in the Exec key). 0356 * Build fix for win32. 0357 * Added a workaround for a rare crash on Mac OS X due to bugs in the implementa- 0358 tion of Qt's font metrics calculation on that platform. 0359 * Fixed a bug causing changes of the 'a' user mode to set/remove Owner status on 0360 nickname list entries. 0361 * Minor UI cleanup in the Channel Settings dialog. 0362 * Enabled freedesktop.org Startup Notification support. 0363 * Recent releases of Konversation filtered all Unicode characters outside the 0364 Basic Multilingual Plane due to a confluence of grave bugs in the Utf-8 0365 support in Qt. As fixed versions of Qt have now circulated for some time and 0366 are required to build Konversation, this restriction on Unicode support has 0367 now been lifted. 0368 * Fixed a bug that caused the desktop notification (KNotify) event for nicks 0369 on the Watched Nicknames list coming online or dropping offline not to fire 0370 when notifications for the associated connection's status tab were disabled. 0371 * Fixed the bundled 'sysinfo' script crashing on non-ascii characters in 0372 /etc/os-release when run on Python 2. 0373 * The bundled 'sysinfo' script now tries harder to determine the current CPU 0374 clock frequencies (it now looks at sys/.../cpufreq/scaling_cur_freq in addi- 0375 tion to /proc/cpuinfo). 0376 * Fixed a bug causing the flood fill tool in DCC Whiteboard tabs not to use 0377 the correct color after using the color picker tool to set it. 0378 * Launching the default browser when clicking on links now works properly 0379 again on Windows. 0380 * Fixed a bug causing certain combinations of sorting and filtering in Channel 0381 List tabs not to work correctly, leading to partially unsorted list entries. 0382 * Minor rewordings and cleanups in UI text and the handbook for clarity and 0383 correctness, e.g. the "Notify" notification event is now known as "Nick on- 0384 line". 0385 * More information sources are now taken into account to update Konversation's 0386 idea of whether a particular nick is identified with services or not (infor- 0387 mation from IRC numeric 330 was previously discarded). 0388 * Fixed a bug causing Konversation to attempt to PART a channel that's no 0389 longer actually joined when closing a channel tab after having been kicked 0390 from the channel. 0391 * Some included PNG image files were badly encoded, this has been addressed. 0392 * Fixed a bug causing the file URL for an authentication certificate in the 0393 Identities dialog to be forgotten across application restarts. 0394 * The warning about text in the topic editor exceeding the server-allowed 0395 limit now calculates the threshold more correctly, taking encoding and IRC 0396 formatting expandos into account. 0397 * Konversation now depends on KDE Platform v4.7.0 or higher and Qt v4.7.0 or 0398 higher. 0399 0400 0401 Changes from 1.4 to 1.5-rc1: 0402 Konversation 1.5-rc1 is the first test release for our next major release. The 0403 1.5 development cycle has lead to significant new features in many areas of the 0404 application, from support for SASL and client certificate authentication on 0405 the protocol side, to all-new topic management UI, overhauled authentication 0406 UI, per-tab spell-checking language settings, user-configurable nick context 0407 menu entries and mouse spring-loading in the frontend and all-new versions of 0408 major bundled scripts. Improved Ignore, Watched Nicknames and Edit Paste 0409 functionality and behavior, performance improvements in some critical codepaths 0410 and many other bug fixes and minor UI touch-ups round things out. 0411 0412 0413 * The user interface for the Auto Identify settings in the Identities dialog has 0414 been extended by a combo box that allows choosing the type of authentification 0415 to be performed. Depending on the chosen type, different input fields are shown 0416 below the combo box. 0417 * The server password-based authentification supported by some networks is now 0418 configurable in the Identities dialog as well, making it more discoverable and 0419 allowing to keep Auto Identify settings generally with the Identity rather than 0420 requiring going through the Edit Server dialog. 0421 * SASL PLAIN authentification is now supported. To use, pick SASL as the Auto 0422 Identify type in the Identities dialog and fill in your account name and 0423 password. 0424 * Standard NickServ authentification has been further improved. The command sent 0425 to to the service, previously hard-coded to "identify", is now configurable, 0426 and the name of the service now defaults to "nickserv" in new identities 0427 (the previous default was an empty field). 0428 * Added support for authenticating via a SSL Client Certificate in the form of 0429 a PEM file if Konversation is built against KDE Platform v4.8.3 or higher. 0430 Choosing this type of authentication in the Identities dialog forces SSL to be 0431 enabled for a connection, overriding any server settings. 0432 * Added the ability to set a different spell-checking language for every tab, 0433 from the context menu of the input box. The chosen language setting is pre- 0434 served across application restarts. 0435 * The Topic tab in the Channel Options dialog has been redesigned and 0436 rewritten from scratch, featuring a much improved UI and many bug fixes: 0437 - In place of the previous UI with a multi-column topic history list and two 0438 distinct text fields for browsing and editing there is now only the list 0439 and an edit field. The list has been redesigned to show all of the data for 0440 a topic, with visually distinct headers serving to delineate individual 0441 entries and showing the author and timestamp, above the full text for each 0442 topic. 0443 - Entries in the history list now sport a context menu allowing to copy the 0444 topic text and querying the topic author. 0445 - A new search field above the history list allows filtering it by looking 0446 for the search string in the text, author name and timestamp of all topics. 0447 - When an encryption key is set for a channel an attempt is now made to 0448 decrypt all of the topics in the history, not just the current topic. 0449 - When editing the topic any text entered past the server's maximum 0450 allowed topic length will now be drawn in the color scheme's negative 0451 text color (i.e. usually red). Further, if Konversation has been built 0452 against KDE Platform v4.7.0 or higher, a warning is shown at the bottom 0453 of the text field explaining the limit and offering the option - via a 0454 button - to delete the excess text. 0455 - The text cursor is now automatically placed at the end of the edit field, 0456 making the common use case of adding to the topic more convenient. 0457 - The location of the splitter handle inbetween the history list and the edit 0458 is now remembered across all Channel Options dialogs and application 0459 restarts. 0460 - Storing the topic history for each channel now takes up less memory, and 0461 general efficiency in handling with topic data has been improved greatly. 0462 - Fixed a bug causing redundant entries to accumulate in the topic history 0463 across reconnects when the last entry in the history corresponds to the 0464 topic given by the server at rejoin. 0465 - Fixed a bug causing HTML tags (e.g. <title>) in topics to be invisible in 0466 the edit field. 0467 - Fixed a bug causing the "Undo" action in the edit field to occassionally 0468 stop working, making it impossible to return the field to the unmodified 0469 state in which its contents sync to the selected history list entry. 0470 - Fixed a bug causing the topic not to return to its encrypted form when the 0471 decryption key for a channel has been deleted. 0472 - Fixed a bug causing the author of a topic to sometimes be shown as the full 0473 user mask instead of consistenty showing only the nickname. 0474 - Fixed a bug causing the "Unknown" placeholder that is used when the author 0475 of a topic is unknown not to be translated. 0476 - Fixed the incorrect tab key order in the Topic tab. 0477 * Fixed a bug causing the topic at the top of channel tabs not to return to its 0478 encrypted form after the decryption key for a channel has been deleted. 0479 * The size of the Channel Options dialog is now synchronized between the dialogs 0480 for different channels and remembered across application restarts. 0481 * The widths of the columns in the Ban List tab in the Channel Options dialog 0482 is now synchronized across all Channel Options dialogs. 0483 * The Quick Buttons options now feature a new checkbox that toggles whether Quick 0484 Buttons that operate on nicknames will be shown alongside other nickname- 0485 related actions in context menus throughout Konversation. Essentially, this 0486 allows for placing custom actions in nickname context menus. 0487 * The list of placeholders available in Quick Button patterns now mention the 0488 previously undocumented "%k" placeholder for the current channel's key and is 0489 sorted alphabetically. 0490 * When a Quick Button pattern replaces the current input box contents (due to 0491 the presence of the "%n" expando in the pattern) they are now added to the 0492 input box history first. 0493 * Quick Button patterns now support a new "%i" placeholder that is replaced with 0494 the current contents of the input box. 0495 * Both the regular tab bar and its listview version now implement "spring- 0496 loading". That is, when dragging something onto a tab and holding it there, 0497 the hovered tab will now be switched to after a brief delay. This allows 0498 switching to the intended tab as part of dragging text or a file to its 0499 destination, e.g. the tab's input bar or nicklist. 0500 * All types of tabs which sport a prominent input widget will now see focus 0501 moved to that widget and the first keypress redirected when focus is on the 0502 treelist version of the tab bar while starting to type. In previous releases 0503 this already worked for chat tabs with their usual input bars, now it also 0504 works for e.g. Channel List tabs and Konsole tabs. 0505 * A '/umode' convenience command to set modes on self has been added. 0506 * The 'Mode change' notification event now sports a proper text payload 0507 describing what has happened. 0508 * The system tray icon now shows an overlay icon when global away is enabled. 0509 * The behavior of the 'Show/Hide Konversation' action has been simplified and 0510 tuned to do the correct thing in more scenarios. Previously, invoking the 0511 action would hide the window even if it was not actually visible due to 0512 being covered by other windows, because merely not being hidden, not being 0513 minimized and being on the current desktop was already considered being 0514 shown. A much simpler approach of always showing the window if it is not the 0515 currently active window (and, as before, moving it to the current desktop as 0516 needed) and hiding it when it is has been adopted now instead. 0517 * Added an option to restrict logging to private conversations (queries, DCC 0518 chats). 0519 * Added an action to manually apply the user-configured auto-replace rules to 0520 the input box contents without sending the message, enabling user review 0521 before doing so. The relative cursor position is preserved or the cursor is 0522 moved to the end of an intersecting replacement insertion when auto-replace 0523 is applied. 0524 * Server status tabs for networks listed in the Server List dialog now have a 0525 "Connect at Startup" checkbox in their context menu, similar to the "Join on 0526 Connect" checkbox in the context menu of channel tabs. Both set options also 0527 available from the Server List. 0528 * Removing newlines in the Edit Paste dialog can now handle Windows-style 0529 carriage return line breaks and whitespace characters other than ASCII 0x20. 0530 * Part and Quit messages now show the hostmask of the subject, consistent with 0531 Join messages. 0532 * The nickname list theme preview in the configuration dialog now uses the same 0533 background color as the actual nickname lists. 0534 * Raw log tabs now use color coding to visually differenciate inbound and 0535 outbound messages, using the server message and channel message colors from 0536 the color settings respectively. 0537 * The DCC Status transfer list update interval now depends on the graphics effects 0538 level setting in KDE System Settings, changing between 500, 1000 and 2000 ms 0539 depending on the level set. 0540 * Fixed a bug causing the input box height not to be adjusted appropriately to 0541 fit the contents when the "Input box expands with text" option is enabled and 0542 the window is resized horizontally, causing the text to rewrap. 0543 * Fixed a bug causing the context menu for an item in the DCC Status transfer 0544 list to appear in the wrong position. 0545 * The double-click action command for Watched Nicks list entries now supports 0546 command aliases. 0547 * Fixed a bug causing wildcard expansion to be performed on the input box 0548 contents when they start with a Command Alias (rather than just expanding 0549 wildcards in the Alias replacement pattern). 0550 * The bundled 'media' script has been rewritten from scratch to implement the 0551 MPRIS2 standard for interfacing with media players - and only the MPRIS2 0552 standard. This means losing support for a number of legacy players which do 0553 not support MPRIS2, but also gaining support for a number of popular modern 0554 players which do (e.g. Tomahawk). Additionally, there are often third-party 0555 MPRIS2 bridges or plugins for players which do not support it natively. The 0556 script now also features much-improved error handling and reporting in the 0557 face of misbehaving players or configuration errors. 0558 * The bundled 'sysinfo' script has been rewritten from scratch. The new version 0559 offers more accurate CPU and KDE version information (accounting for multiple 0560 cores and frequency scaling for the former, and making the difference between 0561 running inside KDE or just using the KDE Platform for the latter), as well as 0562 the addition of distro name and release information and generally improved 0563 robustness in data acquisition. Finally, the output format is now easier to 0564 configure, adopting an approach similar to the one used in the 'media' script. 0565 * The bundled 'sayclip' script has been rewritten from scratch, removing the 0566 now-redundant flood handling found in the old version (Konversation takes 0567 care of this implicitly today) and improving the error handling in case 0568 Klipper cannot be contacted. 0569 * The bundled 'bug' script has been rewritten from scratch, featuring improved 0570 error handling and adding internationalization support. 0571 * Fixed a bug causing the What's This help tooltip for nickname lists to show 0572 the regular user icon instead of the away icon as the away icon example. 0573 * The desktop notification for a completed incoming DCC file transfer now offers 0574 an action to open/run the received file. 0575 * Various fixed to tab stops and margins in the configuration dialog pages. 0576 * Minor UI fixes for the Queue Tuner (opened by /queuetuner), correcting icon 0577 use and button labels. 0578 * Removed excess white space from several warning dialog messages. 0579 * Fixed a bug causing the Watched Nicks to spam the active tab with repeated 0580 WHOIS requests for someone on the Watched Nicks List after opening a query 0581 tab to them while they were offline. 0582 * Fixed several bugs in preserving per-tab encoding settings across application 0583 restarts. 0584 * Link opening now properly respects KDE's file type associating settings instead 0585 of always opening a web browser. 0586 * Fix Konversation not saving the unchecked "... a channel invitation is received" 0587 warning dialog option in the Warning Dialogs list in the configuration dialog 0588 * Unchecking the "... a channel invitation is received" warning dialog option 0589 in the Warning Dialogs list in the configuration dialog now sets the behavior 0590 for future channel join invitations to always joining them. The actual dialog 0591 allows chosing between always accepting and always ignoring, but until this 0592 can be exposed in the configuration dialog, always joining them makes this 0593 option consistent to all other warning dialog options. 0594 * The default behavior upon receiving a channel join invitation is now to ask 0595 the user, instead of silently accepting the invitation. The latter behavior 0596 accidentally snuck into 1.4 and is considered a bug. 0597 * Added a workaround for behavior in the Phonon multimedia library that could 0598 lead to crashes on application quit when using custom highlight notification 0599 sounds. 0600 * Fixed a bug causing an ambiguous shortcut warning dialog when using the 0601 default ESC keyboard shortcut to invoke the Focus Input Box action after the 0602 search has been opened and the Focus New Tabs option was disabled while a new 0603 tab was opened. 0604 * Fixed a bug causing multiple ignore list entries with the same pattern not to 0605 be preserved across application restarts. Instead only the latest entry with 0606 the pattern would. 0607 * Fixed a bug causing the tab label for open log viewer tabs to be set to 0608 "ChatWindowObject" when switching the tab bar position between top or bottom 0609 and left. 0610 * Made the code turning channel names into clickable links more strict about what 0611 types of trailing punctuation it incorporates into the link. 0612 * Fixed bugs causing currently joined channels not to react correctly to changes 0613 in the enabled state of the Automatic User Information Lookup setting. 0614 Previously, enabling the lookup would not actually start it, and disabling it 0615 would only take effect after one last lookup was performed. Both now take 0616 effect immediately. 0617 * The reaction to a change of the Automatic User Information Lookup interval 0618 setting has been improved considerably: Whereas previously Konversation would 0619 simply wait out the current interval scheduled using the old setting value and 0620 only then schedule the next lookup using the new value, it now reschedules the 0621 next lookup to occur as if the new value had been set all along, or, if the 0622 time elapsed since the last lookup was performed already exceeds the new value, 0623 comes as close as possible by performing a lookup immediately. 0624 * All forms of opening a query (the '/query' command, clicking a nickname in the 0625 chat text display, double-clicking in the nickname list or the nickname list 0626 context menu action) now consistently move focus to an existing matching query 0627 tab, matching the behavior of various forms of joining an already-joined channel. 0628 Previously this was only true for the '/query' command. 0629 * Minor visual (the selection decoration for server items now spans the whole row) 0630 and behavioral (when collapsing a network while one of its a server is selected, 0631 the selection is now moved to the network item instead of becoming invisible) 0632 improvements in the Server List dialog. 0633 * Fixed a bug causing the option to automatically focus new query tabs not to work 0634 correctly. 0635 * Fixed a bug causing IRC formatting state not to be reset at the end of a topic 0636 when showing it in a channel's chat text display, potentially causing the rest 0637 of the line to be malformatted. 0638 * If built against KDE Platform v4.8.3 or higher, the date column in the Url 0639 Catcher will now immediately reflect changes to the date format made in KDE's 0640 System Settings application. 0641 * Fixed a bug causing an application crash in response to an (illegal) '/unban 0642 <#channel>' command. 0643 * Showing line and paragraph indicators in the Edit Paste dialog's text entry 0644 field unfortunately had to be disabled for the time being due to a bug in 0645 the underlying Qt code. 0646 * Leaving the "Use custom version reply" option's text field empty now disables 0647 responding to CTCP VERSION requests entirely instead of sending empty responses. 0648 * Fixed the vertical height of rows in the Channel Invites dialog possibly cutting 0649 off the checkboxes depending on the checkbox and font sizes in play. 0650 * A basic framework to support the IRC Client Capabilities Extension ("CAP") has 0651 been added. 0652 * Performance optimizations and code cleanup for processing NAMES messages 0653 from the server. 0654 * Performance improvements have been applied to hotpaths in the protocol 0655 implementation. 0656 * Debug builds of Konversation now understand a "--nui" command line argument to 0657 disable the check for whether Konversation is already running, thus allowing 0658 multiple instances of Konversation to be started. This is known to cause bugs 0659 (e.g. for anything started by Konversation that relies on the D-Bus service 0660 name of the running instance being org.kde.konversation: this means all 0661 bundled scripts) and can wreak havoc with the config file - it's meant only 0662 for use by developers / for debugging purposes. 0663 * Markup cleanups in the handbook and visual improvements to handbook icons in 0664 the PDF export on http://doc.kde.org. 0665 * Fixed a compilation problem on 64bit Windows. 0666 * Code cleanups for warnings issued by clang. 0667 * Build system improvements for kdepimlibs includes handling. 0668 * Konversation now depends on KDE Platform v4.6.0 or higher and Qt v4.7.0 or 0669 higher. 0670 0671 0672 Changes from 1.4-beta1 to 1.4: 0673 The dominant theme in Konversation v1.4 is improvements and feature additions to 0674 the user interface, particularly to text views, dialogs, (context) menus and 0675 input line commands. However, nearly all areas of the application have seen some 0676 amount of improvements in this release, as is to be expected given the 0677 relatively long release cycle: Connection behavior, IRC protocol handling, 0678 scripting support, encryption support, user documentation - new features, polish 0679 and certainly also bug fixes are to be found in all of them. In summary, we hope 0680 you will enjoy the best Konversation yet. 0681 0682 The changelog for this release starts with a (very) brief summary of major 0683 highlights relative to v1.3.1, followed by the short list of changes since 0684 v1.4-beta1. If you skipped the beta, please do refer to the changelog for 0685 v1.4-beta1 as well, which is highly detailed and categorized for your reading 0686 pleasure. 0687 0688 A brief selection of highlights since v1.3.1: 0689 * URL and email detection in text views has been rewritten from scratch, greatly 0690 improving the handling of various types of URLs and the contexts they might 0691 appear in. 0692 * Extensive improvements to IRC formatting code handling, including the return 0693 of background color support. 0694 * Extensive, sometimes full rewrites of user interface elements such as nearly 0695 all context menus, the URL Catcher and the Warning Dialogs system for a long 0696 list of user interface improvements and bug fixes. 0697 * Improved SSL connection behavior. 0698 * Translation support and various other improvements in several bundled scripts. 0699 * Expanded Python scripting support via the introduction of an API support 0700 package. 0701 * Support for more IRC numerics. 0702 * Various bugfixes to input line command handling and connection behavior. 0703 0704 Changes since 1.4-beta1: 0705 * Fixed +q Type A channel modes (Freenode's "quiet bans") being reported as 0706 awarding channel owner privileges. 0707 * Fixed a bug causing the +r channel mode to be incorrectly described as "server 0708 reop" in the user interface. 0709 * Improved the description string for the +l channel mode. 0710 * Fixed the parameter handling of the example script in the handbook's section 0711 on scripting. 0712 * Fixed build with KDE Platform versions below 4.6.0. The minimum required 0713 version is 4.4.3. 0714 * The '/setkey' command now supports keys that have spaces in them, by treating 0715 all parameters after the first as part of the key. 0716 * The 'Edit Multiline Paste' editor now puts initial focus on the text field, 0717 rather than the Send button. 0718 * Added a sanity check to avoid a crash while processing broken, empty NAMES 0719 messages from a server, encountered with the shroudBNC bouncer. 0720 0721 0722 Changes from 1.3.1 to 1.4-beta1: 0723 Konversation v1.4-beta1 is the first pre-release leading up to our next major 0724 release. A dominant theme in this release cycle have been improvements and 0725 feature additions to the user interface, particularly to text views, dialogs, 0726 menus and input line commands. However, as you might expect given the amount of 0727 time since the last release (sorry about that :-), improvements are to be found 0728 in nearly all areas of the application, including connection behavior, IRC 0729 protocol handling, scripting support, and more. Please have a look at the 0730 changelog for a short summary of the major highlights, as well as the usual 0731 extensive coverage of the details. 0732 0733 General User interface (more UI changes in individual sections below): 0734 * The code handling the context menus of chat text views (including the context 0735 menus for nicks and channel links), channel nickname list views and topic 0736 areas has been rewritten from scratch, resulting in a long list of bug fixes 0737 and consistency and efficiency improvements: 0738 - Numerous consistency problems in the area of which actions are available in 0739 which context menus have been addressed. For example, the chat text nick 0740 context menu used to lack many of the actions available in the nickname list 0741 context menu. 0742 - Numerous actions that require an established connection (e.g. everything in 0743 the "Modes" submenu of nick context menus or the DCC actions) used to not 0744 get disabled when loss of connection occurred. Others did get disabled, but 0745 not consistently in all menus in which they are available. Still others, 0746 such as the "Add to Watched Nicks" action, used to get disabled 0747 unnecessarily. All of this has been addressed. 0748 - Toggle actions used to appear and behave inconsistently: The nickname list 0749 context menu showed either "Ignore" or "Unignore" actions as applicable, 0750 while the chat text view nick context menu used a checkable item. Meanwhile, 0751 the "Add to Watched Nicknames" action had no corresponding action to remove 0752 a nick from the Watched Nicks Online list at all. All of this has been 0753 fixed, going with the "Ignore"/"Unignore" style of the nickname list context 0754 menu (i.e. there's now a "Remove from Watched Nicks"). 0755 - If built against Qt 4.7, the topic area now uses the same context menus as 0756 the chat text view (with the exception of the inappropriate "Find Text.." 0757 action in the basic context menu), enabling a lot of functionality missing 0758 otherwise. 0759 - Some actions used to be shown in menus inappropriately, e.g. the "Channel 0760 Settings" action in the chat text view context menu of a connection status 0761 tab or the "Open Logfile" action in the same context menu of a raw log tab. 0762 This has been addressed. 0763 - The behavior of many of the actions is now more consistent with their input 0764 line equivalents. For example, clicking "Join Channel" in a link to an 0765 already-joined channel will now focus the existing channel tab, the same as 0766 the /join command would do. Previously, nothing would happen. 0767 - Fixed a bug causing the nick and channel link context menus in the chat text 0768 view of a channel tab to get disabled after having been kicked from the 0769 channel. 0770 - Fixed a bug causing the "Send Email..." action to always be disabled, even 0771 when any of the associated address book entries did have an email address on 0772 file. 0773 - The display of helpful titles repeating the nick/channel at the top of the 0774 chat text view nick and channel link context menus has been fixed - it 0775 previously got broken in the KDE 4 port. 0776 - The nick and channel link context menus now mark the action that occurs when 0777 clicking either as the default action of the context menu, improving the 0778 appearance with UI styles that visually distinguish the default action. 0779 - General improvements to the layout of menus, often with an aim for improved 0780 consistency with other KDE applications. 0781 - Numerous actions that were missing icons now have them. 0782 - The consistency of keyboard accelerators between the various menus has been 0783 improved. 0784 - Various actions in the nickname list context menu now appropriately use a 0785 singular or plural form for their text label depending on the number of 0786 selected nicks the menu operates on. 0787 - Improved memory efficiency by using single global instances of the various 0788 menus, rather than for example having two separate instances of the nick 0789 context menu - one for the chat text view, one for the nickname list view - 0790 for every channel tab. 0791 - The code implementing the various actions was in many cases redundantly 0792 implemented in three different places, for some even in four. This 0793 staggering code duplication has been done away with. 0794 - Links now have an "Open With..." action that opens a dialog allowing to 0795 choose in which application to open the link. 0796 * The URL Catcher has been rewritten from scratch, bringing about a number of 0797 improvements and bug fixes: 0798 - It is now possible to select multiple list entries, and all of the 0799 selection-related actions, such as "Open" or "Add Bookmark", can now operate 0800 on multiple selected entries ("Add Bookmark" will offer to add all selected 0801 entries as a new bookmark folder, for example). 0802 - Reasonable default sorting: The list is now sorted by the "Date" column in 0803 descending order the first time the URL Catcher is opened, so that the 0804 newest URLs are found at the top. Previously, the list was sorted by the 0805 "From" column in ascending order by default. 0806 - The list data is no longer stored in memory twice while the URL Catcher is 0807 open. Data handling is generally more efficient. 0808 - The list entry context menu has been cleaned up, now showing only the 0809 actions applicable to individual entries. 0810 - The list now automatically receives keyboard focus when switching to the URL 0811 Catcher tab. 0812 - When saving the list to disk, the file dialog to pick the destination file 0813 will now ask before overwriting an existing file of the same name. 0814 - The date and time in the header of a saved list file is now formatted 0815 according to the user's locale settings. 0816 - Fixed a bug causing the opening of caught irc:// and ircs:// URLs not to 0817 work. 0818 - Fixed a bug causing the "Date" column to sort alphabetically rather than 0819 chronologically. 0820 - Fixed a bug causing the deletion of list entries not to work. 0821 - Fixed a bug causing a 1px remnant of tree branch lines to be visible along 0822 the left edge of list entries. 0823 - An unnecessary margin around the toolbar and the search line edit has been 0824 removed. 0825 - Fixed a bug causing the URL Catcher tab to claim to be eligible to receive 0826 chat text messages that have the frontmost eligible tab as their recipient 0827 despite it not actually possessing the means to display them, resulting in a 0828 crash when such a message occurred. 0829 * The Warning Dialogs system has been overhauled, with improved wording in the 0830 listing in the configuration dialog (which now also contains the previously 0831 missing warning when minimizing to the system tray) and further improvements 0832 to individual warning dialogs, such as the addition of previously missing 0833 Cancel buttons. 0834 * Added a "Show/Hide Konversation" action that can be used to toggle the 0835 minimized state of the Konversation window or, if the tray icon is enabled, 0836 its visibility. Additionally, the window will always be moved to the current 0837 virtual desktop if shown using this action (if the window is already shown on 0838 another desktop, it will be moved to the current desktop rather than hidden). 0839 * It's now possible to give the "Next Active Tab" shortcut a global keyboard 0840 shortcut, and when triggered the action will always show, raise and focus the 0841 Konversation window (as needed), regardless of whether it will also perform a 0842 tab switch. This allows "Next Active Tab" to double as a "get me the 0843 Konversation window and the tab that just caused my notifications to go off" 0844 global shortcut. 0845 * Clicking the Insert button in the "Insert Character" dialog will no longer 0846 immediately close the dialog, making it easier to insert multiple characters 0847 in quick succession. 0848 * Double-clicking a character in the "Insert Character" dialog will now insert 0849 it into the input line. 0850 * The "Insert Character" dialog now sports a search line. 0851 * The widths of the columns and the sort column and direction in the Channel 0852 Option dialog's ban list are now remembered across application restarts. 0853 * The "Rejoin Channel" context menu action, shown when a channel could not be 0854 rejoined automatically on reconnect as well as after having been kicked from a 0855 channel, will now appear above the "Close Tab" action rather than at the end 0856 of the context menu, so "Close Tab" is always the last item. 0857 * The "Ok" button in the "Edit Multiline Paste" editor has been renamed to 0858 "Send" to communicate more clearly that clicking it will send the editor 0859 contents to the server. 0860 * Formatting control codes (e.g. for colors) in user real names are now filtered 0861 out before the names are shown in the nickname list when the "Show real names 0862 in nickname list" option is enabled. 0863 * The layout of user information tooltips (shown e.g. when hovering a nick in 0864 the nickname list or the header area of a query tab) has been improved 0865 slightly. 0866 * Fixed bugs causing the tooltip for the adjacent rather than the hovered item 0867 to be shown when hovering the mouse pointer near the upper or lower edges of 0868 an item in the nickname list or the listview version of the tab bar (tooltips 0869 are only shown on the latter when the listview is too narrow to fit its 0870 contents, to provide the unelided tab names). 0871 * Fixed bug causing the IRC Color Chooser dialog to only show 15 colors instead 0872 of the available 16. 0873 * Fixed a bug causing a very wide minimum window width when a query tab with 0874 very long user information in the header area was open. 0875 * Fixed bug causing the opening of URLs via the "Open URL" sub-menu in the list 0876 entry context menu in Channel List tabs not to work. 0877 * Fixed a bug causing actions that are meant to operate on the active tab (e.g. 0878 "Close Tab" invoked by the default shortcut Ctrl+W) to operate on a different 0879 tab after the "Join on Connect" action in that tab's context menu had been 0880 used. 0881 * Fixed a bug causing the state of the Show/Hide Menubar action not to be 0882 updated correctly when hiding the menubar was canceled from the warning 0883 dialog. 0884 * Fixed a bug causing the "Delete" button in the "Server List" dialog to 0885 incorrectly show a "Network needs to have at least one server." error dialog 0886 when trying to delete servers, even when the deletion would in fact leave the 0887 network with one or more servers. 0888 * Fixed a bug causing the active tab's text label not to be greyed out when its 0889 IRC server connection is cut. 0890 * Got rid of some too large margins in the "Edit Network" dialog. 0891 0892 Text views: 0893 * Added support for KDE Web Shortcuts when built against KDE Platform 4.5 or 0894 higher: The context menu for selected text in a chat text view then offers a 0895 submenu by which the selected text can be used in a web search with any of the 0896 enabled search providers. The resulting search URL is opened in the system's 0897 default wen browser after clicking on the search provider in the submenu. 0898 * Added support for ircs:// URLs, the 's' standing for 'SSL'. It is supported 0899 both for opening and for bookmarking. If an ircs:// URL matches a server 0900 configured in the server list or refers to a network name instead of a 0901 specific server, the directive from the URL overrides the state of the SSL 0902 setting in the configuration. 0903 * Detection of URLs and email addresses in chat text views to turn them into 0904 clickable links has been much improved. An incomplete overview of notable 0905 cases: 0906 - Unicode characters in URLs are now handled properly, enabling support for 0907 example for international domain names. 0908 - Protocol-less links not starting in "www.", such as the short URLs popular 0909 these days ("bit.ly/foo" and similar), are now recognized. 0910 - Arbitrary protocols (e.g. "http://" or "message://") are now recognized; 0911 previously only a small hand-picked and insufficient set was. 0912 - The check that avoids balanced a pair of parentheses around an URL becoming 0913 part of the link now works for more than one level of balanced parentheses. 0914 - Aside from balanced pairs of parentheses, also square and other forms of 0915 brackets are now handled properly. 0916 - Trailing question marks no longer become part of the link. 0917 - URLs using uncommon schemas, e.g. Apple message:// URLs or Wolfram Alpha 0918 URLs, are now handled properly. 0919 - Numerous improvements to email link handling: User names containing the plus 0920 sign are now handled correctly, opening email links from the URL Catcher 0921 works now and others. 0922 - The URL detection for the "Open URL" sub-menu in the list entry context menu 0923 in Channel List tabs now uses the same infrastructure as link detection 0924 elsewhere rather than separate code, making it massively better compared to 0925 previous versions. 0926 - Average speed of link detection has improved slightly. 0927 * Added support for dragging web and email address links found in topic areas. 0928 * IRC formatting markup (colors, bold, italic, etc.) support in chat text views 0929 and the topic editor has been improved significantly: 0930 - Background colors are now supported. 0931 - The reverse color formatting character is now supported. 0932 - To emphasize usability, links are now consistently displayed using the link 0933 and background colors from the configuration dialog, regardless of preceding 0934 formatting markup or formatting markup located within the link. 0935 - Formatting markup located within links in incoming messages no longer 0936 results in those links being broken. 0937 - Fixed bugs resulting in incorrect display of messages containing multiple 0938 formatting characters. 0939 - Improved robustness in the face of invalid color codes. 0940 - Formatting markup in the topic editor's topic history listing is now shown 0941 in the human-readable format that is also used for entry, making it much 0942 easier to derive a new topic from an old one that contains formatting 0943 markup. 0944 - Fixed a bug causing '/topic <channel>' to display the topic of <channel> 0945 with formatting markup stripped. 0946 * Join/Part/Nick messages can now be selectively hidden based on whether the 0947 nickname the message is about has been active in the respective channel in the 0948 last 10 minutes, last hour, last day or last week. Previously it was all or 0949 nothing. 0950 * Rewrote chat text view wallpaper image support to avoid rendering problems 0951 some users were experiencing. 0952 * Fixed a bug causing some user hostmasks in chat text lines about channel topic 0953 author information to be treated as email addresses and thus turned into 0954 clickable links. They would also pollute the URL Catcher. 0955 * The code backing the marker and remember lines has been rewritten to work 0956 around bugs in Qt that could cause crashes, especially when running 0957 Konversation against Qt v4.7.4 or newer (see QTBUG-20916 for more). 0958 0959 Input lines: 0960 * Added a "Focus Input Box" action that puts keyboard focus on the input box. 0961 The default shortcut is the Escape key. 0962 * The '(away)' label shown next to input lines when away now has a context menu 0963 with actions to change the away message or return from away state. 0964 * Pressing the Tab key when the cursor is at the start of the input box now 0965 checks whether the remembered nickname is currently attending the channel 0966 before repeating the last successful completion. 0967 0968 Commands: 0969 * The syntax for the '/cycle' command is now '/CYCLE [-APP | -SERVER] [channel | 0970 nickname]'. Whereas '/cycle' previously only allowed you to cycle a channel 0971 from the input line of that same channel, you can now specify the target 0972 explicitly. '-app' will restart Konversation (as with the new 'Restart' action 0973 mentioned in the "Command line arguments" section, preservation of the command 0974 line arguments the app was started with requires KDE Platform 4.6 Alpha 1 or 0975 higher to work) and '--server' will close all tabs belonging to the current 0976 connection and then create a new connection with the same settings as the old 0977 one (plus it will attempt to rejoin all previously open channels). Both are 0978 new abilities for the command. A '/cycle' without parameters issued in server, 0979 channel and query tabs is equivalent to specifying '-server' or the current 0980 channel or query, respectively -- the ability to cycle a query is also new. 0981 * The '/clear' command now supports a channel or query argument to clear, as 0982 well as an -all parameter to clear all views. 0983 * The '/notify' command now displays more useful output after adding and 0984 removing and when summarizing Watched Nicks. 0985 * Fixed a bug causing adding of nicknames to the Watched Nicks Online list via 0986 the '/notify' command to fail. 0987 * Added an optional '-showpath' parameter to the '/exec' command that shows the 0988 path at which the given script file was found in the chat text view, i.e. 0989 '/exec -showpath media'. 0990 * Commands that accept parameters in the form "-foo" will now also understand " 0991 --foo". 0992 * The '/dns' command used to block the UI while trying to resolve the parameter 0993 it was given, potentially causing an extended lock-up of the application when 0994 the system has serious DNS trouble. This has been resolved; '/dns' is now 0995 fully non-blocking. 0996 * Trying to use the '/me' command from a tab that doesn't support it will now 0997 cause an appropriate error message to be displayed. 0998 * Fixed a bug causing the '/kickban' command not use the default kick reason 0999 from the Identity settings if no reason was explicitly specified. 1000 * Fixed a bug that could cause the '/list' command to open the Channel List tab 1001 for the wrong connection. 1002 * Fixed a bug causing '/list <search pattern>' to close an existing Channel List 1003 tab (the intended behavior for a parameter-less '/list') rather than update 1004 the active filter and refresh the list. 1005 1006 Highlights and notifications: 1007 * Added a new "Chat Windows" field to the Highlight configuration to optionally 1008 restrict the list of chat windows a given highlight event may be triggered in 1009 to those named in the field, separated by comma or semicolon. 1010 * Resolved a conflict between the highlight system and the graphical emoticon 1011 support that was causing unintended highlights when the filesystem path to an 1012 emoticon image file shown in the chat text view matched any of the configured 1013 highlights. 1014 * Fixed bugs in the highlight system caused by it mistakenly operating on the 1015 HTML markup used internally by the chat text views rather than the original 1016 text. 1017 1018 Identities: 1019 * Added a "Default away reason" field to the "Away" tab in the Identities 1020 dialog. The away reason entered there will be used when no away message is 1021 entered manually as an argument to the '/away' or '/aaway' commands, so for 1022 example when Global Away is enabled using the keyboard shortcut. 1023 * "Away Messages" on the "Away" tab of the Identities dialog has been renamed to 1024 "Away Commands". 1025 1026 Watched Nicknames: 1027 * Fixed a bug causing the Watched Nicks Online system to fail to start checking 1028 nickname online status for a network after adding an initial nick to its 1029 Watched Nicks list via the context menu actions or the '/notify' command (it 1030 worked fine via the WNO tab, however). 1031 1032 Bookmarking: 1033 * Fixed a bug causing the bookmark address to be unusable (it would lack the 1034 network name) when bookmarking a tab and the name of the associated network 1035 contains a space or certain other special characters. 1036 1037 Logging: 1038 * Fixed a bug causing pipe symbols to appear in the date/time stamp and next to 1039 the nickname in backlog replay. 1040 * Fixed a bug causing the chat text notification messages originating in the 1041 Watched Nicknames Online system to be logged in HTML format (and thus HTML 1042 source to be displayed e.g. in backlog replay). 1043 * Fixed a bug causing a change of the buffer size setting on a log reader tab's 1044 toolbar not to immediately apply to new log reader tabs opened thereafter. 1045 Instead the buffer size for new tabs would be the size set on the toolbar of 1046 the last log reader tab that got closed, making it easy to unintentionally 1047 undo a change depending on the order in which log reader tabs were closed. 1048 1049 DCC: 1050 * Added a Color Picker tool to DCC WHITEBOARD, to select a color from the image. 1051 * A better version of the information dialog for DCC file transfers is shown 1052 when Konversation is built against KDE Platform 4.5 or higher. 1053 * Fixed a bug causing newly-added DCC file transfers to the list in the DCC 1054 Status tab not to be sorted when using Qt 4.7. 1055 1056 Connection behavior: 1057 * The auto-join on connect feature will now skip over any configured channels 1058 that are invalid as per the IRC server's CHANTYPES rules when sending the join 1059 command(s) to the server, making sure that all valid channels are joined even 1060 on servers that stop parsing join commands on the first invalid channel. 1061 Previously, all configured channels were sent. 1062 * Fixed a bug causing a channel the tab of which was closed while a connection 1063 was in disconnected mode to be rejoined upon reconnect. 1064 * Fixed a (harmless) bug causing unnecessary trailing "." placeholder channel 1065 key segments to be added to the raw format auto-join command (or to the last 1066 of multiple such auto-join commands when the amount of auto-join channels 1067 requires multiple commands to be generated). 1068 * Fixed a regression that could cause an endless loop of reconnection attempts 1069 when issuing a reconnect order to an established connection and the time 1070 needed to establish the new connection was longer than the configured 1071 reconnection delay. It would also cause confusing status messages to be shown 1072 in the connection status tab. 1073 * Cancelling the dialog asking how to deal with SSL errors upon connecting is 1074 now treated as a deliberate disconnect on part of the user, i.e. Konversation 1075 will no longer try to automatically reconnect. 1076 * A disconnect while waiting for user response to an SSL error dialog will no 1077 longer result in an automatic reconnection attempt. Instead, Konversation will 1078 wait for the outcome of the user interaction: If the user decides to ignore 1079 the SSL errors that have occurred, a reconnect will be initiated, otherwise 1080 the connection will remain disconnected. 1081 * Fixed a bug causing a crash when the user chose to accept an invalid 1082 certificate in the SSL error dialog when the connection had timed out in the 1083 meantime. 1084 * Fixed a bug causing the quit message to not always be supplied successfully to 1085 the server when disconnecting. 1086 * Fixed a bug that could cause the "Server found" message to be shown in the 1087 connection status tab before the "Looking for server" message if the DNS 1088 response was already cached. 1089 * Fixed bugs causing the automatic user information lookup, the periodic WHO-on- 1090 self and the periodic PING for a given connection not to be suspended properly 1091 after a disconnect, causing unnecessary wakeups and the potential for these 1092 messages to be sent at inappropriate times in the early phase of a 1093 reconnection attempt. 1094 * Fixed a bug causing a connection failure to reset the lag meter in the status 1095 bar to "Unknown" even when the active tab is not related to the connection 1096 that failed. 1097 * Solid network up/down notifications are now ignored for connections to 1098 localhost. 1099 1100 Scripting and bundled scripts: 1101 * The 'cmd' script, used to run a shell command from within Konversation and 1102 send the output to the server, has been rewritten from scratch to provide the 1103 following improvements: 1104 - Running a command that returns no output or only empty lines used to result 1105 in an error claiming the command does not exist. Now an info message is 1106 shown remarking that the command executed successfully but did not return 1107 any output or only whitespace. 1108 - The script now also works when called from a server status tab - the command 1109 output will be shown to the user rather than sent to the server in that 1110 case. 1111 - The command's error output (stderr) used to be ignored; now it is shown to 1112 the user in the active tab (but not sent to the server). 1113 - Trailing whitespace is now stripped from command output. 1114 - Output lines containing only whitespace are no longer forwarded to 1115 Konversation. As an aside, this also implicitly fixes a bug the old script 1116 used to suffer from that caused it to generate faulty D-Bus calls when 1117 trying to forward empty output lines. 1118 * The bundled 'sysinfo' script now handles the way 'mount' reports bind mounts 1119 on certain newer Linux distributions by collapsing the repeated mentions of 1120 the same volume before calculating the disk space information. 1121 * Scripts executed by Konversation can now access Konversation's current UI 1122 locale in the KONVERSATION_LANG environment variable. 1123 * Konversation now installs an experimental Python scripting support package 1124 named 'konversation' into a subdirectory of its application data directory and 1125 appends all 'konversation/scripting_support/python' directories found in any 1126 KDE application data resource directories (i.e. within $KDEHOME, $KDEDIRS, 1127 etc.) to the PYTHONPATH environment variable available in the script execution 1128 context, thereby allowing Python scripts executed by Konversation to import 1129 the package. The package currently sports modules providing APIs for i18n 1130 support and D-Bus communication with Konversation. 1131 * User-facing information and error message strings in the bundled 'cmd' and 1132 'media' scripts now finally enjoy translation support, making use of the 1133 experimental new Python scripting support package described above. 1134 * The 'media' script now requires Python 2.6 or higher and is compatible with 1135 Python 3. 1136 1137 IRC Protocol: 1138 * Added support for the 475 numeric (ERR_BADCHANNELKEY). 1139 * Added support for the 482 numeric (ERR_CHANOPRIVSNEEDED). 1140 * Added support for UnrealIRCd's 671 numeric. 1141 * Incoming actions (i.e. "/me") without an argument are now handled properly. 1142 * Fixed a number of crashes on illegal data from the server. 1143 * Raw log tabs (/raw) now use percent-recording to depict non-ASCII characters 1144 in raw traffic for much improved usefulness and reliability in the multi- 1145 encoding world of IRC. 1146 * Numeric 437 (ERR_UNAVAILRESOURCE) is now treated like numeric 433 1147 (ERR_NICKNAMEINUSE) during early connection negotiation: The next nickname in 1148 the identity's nickname list is tried, or the user asked for a new one if 1149 necessary. Previously Konversation would just idle in this situation and allow 1150 the connection attempt to time out. 1151 1152 Command line arguments: 1153 * Added '--restart' command line argument and a 'Restart' action that quits and 1154 restart Konversation. Notes: If not already running, the command line argument 1155 has no effect; startup will occur normally. Also, the preservation of command 1156 line arguments across restarts is only supported on KDE Platform 4.6 Alpha 1 1157 and higher, as a required library feature is only available as of that 1158 version. 1159 * Added a '--startupdelay <msec>' command line argument that causes the app to 1160 sleep for the specified amount of milliseconds early during the startup 1161 process, delaying D-Bus activity and UI creation. 1162 1163 System integration: 1164 * Konversation now also registers itself for the irc:// and ircs:// protocols 1165 using the way preferred by freedesktop.org's shared-mime technology rather 1166 than just the KDE-specific way. 1167 * Fixed the tray icon always being in 'active' mode (and thus conflicting with 1168 the Plasma desktop tray's auto-hide behavior) when using the new (and, in this 1169 release, only supported) system tray protocol. 1170 1171 D-Bus interface: 1172 * A D-Bus method call to retrieve the list of channels a particular connection 1173 is currently attending has been added. 1174 1175 Documentation: 1176 * Numerous updates and cleanup in the handbook. 1177 * Fixed a bug causing the Help button in the Configure Konversation dialog not 1178 to open the handbook. 1179 1180 Misc: 1181 * Various small code cleanups inspired by cppcheck. 1182 1183 Build system and dependencies: 1184 * Konversation now depends on KDE Platform v4.4.3 or higher and Qt v4.6.0 or 1185 higher. 1186 * A Python installation is a recommended dependency due to optional but highly 1187 popular bundled scripts and an experimental Python scripting support package 1188 mentioned above. 1189 * Fixed build with KDE4_ENABLE_FINAL. 1190 * The section of the build system required to build user interface and handbook 1191 translations is now always present instead of being added manually to the 1192 tarball at release time, springing into action when the subdirectories 1193 containing the translation files are added to the source tree from KDE SVN, 1194 or remaining dormant otherwise. 1195 * Konversation could crash during Diffie-Hellman key exchange or Blowfish 1196 encryption/decryption if the system's installation of the Qt Cryptographic 1197 Infrastructure (QCA) does not have the required features available (usually 1198 because the qca-ossl provider plugin is not installed). It will now fail 1199 gracefully instead and show helpful error messages in the active tab. 1200 1201 1202 Changes from 1.3 to 1.3.1: 1203 Konversation 1.3.1 is a maintenance release that improves program behavior 1204 and fixes defects, the most serious of which is a regression that unfortu- 1205 nately suck into v1.3, which causes data corruption or even loss of Watched 1206 Nicknames Online lists on application quit. Behavioral improvements are 1207 found in the handling of aborting automatic reconnection attempts after 1208 connection failure and RFC 1459 PING/PONG exchanges. Further notable bug- 1209 fixes have been made to the Edit Network dialog, the handling of system 1210 color schemes and using the ignore list feature to ignore certain CTCP 1211 events. 1212 1213 1214 * In addition to the '/disconnect' command, the graphical 'Disconnect' 1215 action and the '/quit' command can now be used to cancel an in-progress 1216 automatic reconnect in the event of connection failure as well. 1217 * The '/disconnect' and '/reconnect' commands now take optional quit message 1218 parameters. 1219 * Fixed crashes when pressing the "Edit" buttons below the server or 1220 channel lists in the "New Network"/"Edit Network" dialogs after adding 1221 a new server or channel and there was no item selected before in the re- 1222 spective list. 1223 * Fixed bugs causing the "Edit" buttons below the server or channel lists 1224 in the "New Network"/"Edit Network" dialogs to edit the previously selec- 1225 ted list items rather than the ones shown as selected after adding a new 1226 server or channel. 1227 * Fixed a bug that could cause outdated status information for nicks to be 1228 displayed in channel nickname lists after a reconnect. 1229 * Efficiency improvements for channel join. 1230 * Don't send PING in response to PONG if another PING is already scheduled 1231 to be sent in the future. This avoids getting kicked off a server for 1232 flooding when multiple clients are connected to a bouncer that forwards 1233 PONGs to all of them. 1234 * Fixed numerous cases in which Konversation would incorrectly apply the 1235 KDE system color scheme to input lines, nickname lists and the listview 1236 version of the tab bar. This general overhaul of the relevant code also 1237 brought about minor efficiency and memory usage improvements. 1238 * Fixed nickname lists not respecting the "Alternate Background" setting 1239 when set to use custom colors. 1240 * Fixed the listview version of the tab bar not greying out disconnected 1241 tabs when set to use custom colors. 1242 * Fixed a bug causing the processing of incoming CTCP CLIENTINFO and CTCP 1243 TIME requests not to take the ignore list into account. 1244 * The "Insert IRC Color" dialog will now add a leading zero to colors which 1245 have single-digit numbers in the '%C...' string it inserts into the input 1246 line, to allow the text that follows to start with a digit rather than 1247 such a digit getting interpreted as part of the color number. 1248 * Fixed a bug causing the Watched Nicknames Online nickname list for a net- 1249 work to be stored under the wrong network or lost entirely on application 1250 quit. 1251 * Fixed a bug causing the order of the Quick Buttons below the nickname 1252 list in channel tabs to be flipped every time the config dialog was OK'd. 1253 * Improved consistency of the filter fields in the URL Catcher and Channel 1254 List tabs with other KDE applications. 1255 * Correct use of singular or plural unit suffixes for several numeric pre- 1256 ferences in the configuration dialog. 1257 * It is no longer possible to set the auto-way time to the nonsensical 1258 value of zero minutes. Rather, a minimum of one minute is now enforced. 1259 1260 1261 Changes from 1.3-beta1 to 1.3: 1262 Konversation 1.3 debuts a major new feature in the area of Direct-Client- 1263 to-Client (DCC) support: An implementation of the DCC Whiteboard extension 1264 that brings collaborative drawing - think two-player Kolourpaint - to IRC. 1265 It also brings back the integration with KDE's SSL certificate store the 1266 KDE 3 version enjoyed and expands support for auto-away to the Windows and 1267 Mac OS X platforms thanks to both recent advances in the KDE 4 platform and 1268 new code in Konversation. Interface tweaks, new keyboard shortcuts and many 1269 bugfixes (including a number of new fixes since 1.3-beta1) round things out. 1270 Finally, Konversation now depends on KDE 4.3 and Qt 4.5. 1271 1272 1273 * Fixed build with KDE 4.3. 1274 * When opening an "Edit Network" dialog and adding a new item to one of 1275 the server or channel lists, provided they already contain at least one 1276 item and no selection is made before clicking "Add...", the "Move Down" 1277 button would be enabled afterwards despite no item being selected. 1278 Clicking the button at this point would crash the application. This has 1279 been fixed along with other potential problems in the code that updates 1280 the state of the list control buttons. 1281 * After adding a new item to one of the server or channel lists in "Edit 1282 Network" dialogs, that item will now be selected. 1283 * Fixed a bug causing the file dialog for selecting a new target directory 1284 and file name for an incoming DCC file transfer in the event that the 1285 default path is not writable to complain about being unable to find the 1286 file after clicking "OK" when no file of the chosen name at the chosen 1287 location exists already. 1288 * Fixed a bug causing the file dialog for selecting a new target directory 1289 and file name for an incoming DCC file transfer in the event that the 1290 default path is not writable to lose the file name written in the "Lo- 1291 cation" field (by default, the original file name) when changing the 1292 current directory. 1293 1294 1295 Changes from 1.2.3 to 1.3-beta1: 1296 Konversation 1.3-beta1 debuts a major new feature in the area of Direct 1297 Client-to-Client (DCC) support: An implementation of the DCC Whiteboard 1298 extension that brings collaborative drawing - think two-player Kolour- 1299 paint - to IRC. It also brings back the integration with KDE's SSL certi- 1300 ficate store the KDE 3 version enjoyed and expands support for auto-away 1301 to the Windows and Mac OS X platforms thanks to both recent advances in 1302 the KDE 4 platform and new code in Konversation. Interface tweaks, new 1303 keyboard shortcuts and many bugfixes round things out. Finally, Konversa- 1304 tion now depends on KDE 4.3 and Qt 4.5. 1305 1306 1307 * Konversation now depends on Qt 4.5 and KDE 4.3. 1308 * Added support for DCC WHITEBOARD, bringing collaborative drawing to 1309 IRC. 1310 * When showing the dialog informing the user about the local target 1311 file for an incoming DCC file transfer already existing that dialog 1312 now includes the sizes of the local file and the file the sender is 1313 offering up. 1314 * Fixed a bug causing either an empty line or a few characters of gar- 1315 bage to be placed in the clipboard in place of marker/remember lines 1316 when copying chat text containing such lines. 1317 * Fixed a bug causing quotation marks, ampersands and angle brackets 1318 in chat messages to be displayed as HTML entities in the OSD. 1319 * The "Clear All Windows" action will now also resets the notification 1320 state of all tabs (i.e. removes active new message or highlight no- 1321 tifications from the tab bar). 1322 * Fixed a bug causing the server responses to background data gather- 1323 ing via WHO (to keep the app's idea of its own hostmask up to date, 1324 as well as optionally channel user info) to be displayed in tabs as 1325 if the user had made the requests manually after sending a '/who' 1326 command without parameters. 1327 * Fixed a bug causing a crash when sending '/privmsg' without any pa- 1328 rameters (did not apply to '/msg'). 1329 * In previous versions, channel tabs opened in the background (i.e. 1330 while "Focus new tabs" is disabled, as it is by default) would con- 1331 siderably increase the minimum width of the window due to particu- 1332 larities of the Qt layout system. After raising every channel tab 1333 at least once it would then be possible to make the window much 1334 narrower. This unintuitive behavior resulted in confusion as to why 1335 the minimum width of the Konversation window would sometimes vary 1336 greatly. This has been fixed in this version, i.e. it is no longer 1337 necessary to have raised every channel tab at least once to achieve 1338 a reasonable minimum width of the window. This also means that 1339 joining a new channel is now much less likely to resize the window. 1340 * Fixed a bug causing the status bar to become multiple lines in 1341 height when hovering an URL containing percent-encoded line breaks 1342 in the chat text view. 1343 * Fixed a bug making it impossible to scroll the Advanced Modes list 1344 in the Channel Settings dialog when the user doesn't have operator 1345 status in the channel. 1346 * Fixed a crash when selecting more than one completed, failed or 1347 aborted outbound transfer in the "DCC Status" tab and clicking "Re- 1348 send" in their context menu. 1349 * Fixed a bug causing the human-readable mode descriptions used by 1350 default in channel chat text views as well as the Channel Settings 1351 dialog's Advanced Modes list not to be translated. 1352 * When the display of human-readable mode descriptions is enabled 1353 (as it is by default), the Advanced Mode list in the Channel Set- 1354 tings dialog will now show the respective mode characters along- 1355 side them. Previously, only the description was shown. This makes 1356 the list useful as a utility to look up the meaning of obscure 1357 mode characters. 1358 * Fixed a bug causing both the default email client and the default 1359 web browser to be invoked when clicking an email address link in 1360 the chat text view. 1361 * Added a built-in '/sayversion' command that, as opposed to the 1362 bundled '/kdeversion' script, can show the version of both the KDE 1363 Konversation was built against and is running on. It also outputs 1364 the information in a single message instead of several. 1365 * Fixed a bug that would cause the second and following segments of a 1366 text so long that it has to be split into multiple messages when it 1367 is sent to be encoded incorrectly. 1368 * The ASCII 0x1d character is now used to denote italic formatting of 1369 text rather than 0x09, to avoid the conflict with the tab character 1370 that is frequently pasted e.g. from websites with tables. 1371 * Fixed a bug causing the server response to '/whois <nick> <nick>' 1372 not to be displayed on many IRC servers when the nick in questions 1373 is not online at that time (this variant of the WHOIS command is 1374 also used by the GUI actions). 1375 * Fixed a bug causing missing bans in the list in the Channel Settings 1376 dialog on certain (mostly older) IRC servers. 1377 * The text in notification messages used to be wrapped every 50 char- 1378 acters, an old workaround for problems with KDE 3.x's bubble notifi- 1379 cations. This has been removed now since it's no longer needed with 1380 modern notification frontends such as Plasma's, and produces rather 1381 ugly results there. 1382 * Made it possible again to initate DCC file transfers to a query 1383 partner by dragging files or URLs onto the chat text area of the 1384 query. 1385 * When building against the KDE Platform v4.4.3 libraries, the auto- 1386 away functionality will now make use of the new KIdleTime library 1387 to determine user activity and inactivity rather than use its own 1388 code, the primary advantage being that KIdleTime is supported on 1389 non-X11 platforms such as Windows and Mac OS X. In effect, this 1390 means auto-away is now supported on those platforms, depending on 1391 the implementation level in KIdleTime. (The use of KIdleTime can 1392 be explicitly disabled by passing '-DUSE_KIDLETIME=false' to 1393 'cmake', in which case Konversation will fall back to using the 1394 original, X11-specific code and auto-away will only work decently 1395 on an X11 platform.) 1396 * SSL support now integrates with KDE's certificate handling again, 1397 as it used to in the KDE 3 version, made possible by improvements 1398 in the libraries of the KDE Platform v4.3 (the minimum version 1399 supported in this release) and higher. 1400 * Not reacting to an SSL certificat validation error dialog in a 1401 timely manner should no longer result in Konversation locking up. 1402 * In-progress automatic reconnect in the event of connection failure 1403 can now be aborted by using the '/disconnect' command. 1404 * Manually issuing a reconnect order to a connection currently in- 1405 active after having exceeded its maximum number of reconnection 1406 attempts used to result in a single connection attempt after 1407 which it would be announced that the maximum number of reconnect- 1408 ion attempts had been exceeded again. This has been fixed: It will 1409 now make the number of attempts specified as the upper limit in 1410 the application settings. 1411 * Fixed a bug that could cause the selection in the transfer list of 1412 the DCC Status tab to be lost when a new transfer was added to the 1413 list. 1414 * Fixed a bug causing the information panel in the DCC Status tab to 1415 show information for a transfer other than the one selected in the 1416 transfer list after sending a file to oneself for the first time 1417 in a session. 1418 * The frame that used to be around the main window's tab widget when 1419 the tab bar was located either at the bottom or top position has 1420 been removed. 1421 * Improved compatibility with freedesktop.org-compliant notification 1422 frontends other than KDE's. Other frontends could previously show 1423 empty notification message contents due to non-standard content in 1424 the messages. 1425 * Added an action to switch to the last focused tab, making it possi- 1426 ble to quickly switch forth and back between two tabs. The default 1427 keyboard shortcut for this new action is Alt+Space. 1428 * Added a "-local" parameter to the '/amsg' and '/ame' commands that 1429 limits their scope to the channel and query tabs associated with 1430 the same connection as the tab the command is issued in. 1431 * Fixed a bug causing the order of networks in the server list dialog 1432 not to be preserved across application restarts. 1433 1434 1435 Changes from 1.2.2 to 1.2.3: 1436 Konversation 1.2.3 is a hotfix release that improves upon an earlier 1437 fix, originally included in Konversation 1.2.2, that increases the re- 1438 liability of Konversation's interaction with the D-Bus inter-process 1439 communication daemon. 1440 1441 * Increased reliability of interactions with the D-Bus inter-process 1442 communication daemon. 1443 1444 1445 Changes from 1.2.1 to 1.2.2: 1446 Konversation 1.2.2 contains a number of new features, such as support 1447 for passive DCC chat and amarok:// URLs, and a large amount of user 1448 interface improvements to various tabs (e.g. Watched Nicknames Online 1449 and the URL Catcher) and dialogs (e.g. Join Channel). When used with 1450 KDE SC 4.4 it supports the new system tray icon API. A sizable list 1451 of bug fixes round things out; of particular note is a change address- 1452 ing the high CPU usage some users have experienced with Qt 4.6. 1453 1454 1455 * Added support for passive DCC chat. 1456 * Made it possible to accept/reject DCC chats like DCC file transfers. 1457 * Added an option to auto-accept DCC chats (previously it would always 1458 auto-accept). 1459 * Added a confirmation dialog for closing DCC chats, consistent with 1460 other conversation tabs. 1461 * Improved the sanity-checking code for the validity of ports used in 1462 DCC operations. 1463 * Fixed connection attempts possibly stalling when there is a problem 1464 with executing the associated identity's pre-shell command (provided 1465 it has one set at all), and Konversation crashing when it is quit 1466 while a connection attempt is stuck on trying to execute the pre- 1467 shell command. 1468 * Fixed /setkey, /delkey and /showkey treating their target arguments 1469 (i.e. a channel or a query) case-sensitive. 1470 * Fixed the encryption key for a query getting lost if the other end 1471 changes their nickname. 1472 * Added support for KStatusNotifierItem, the new system tray API in 1473 KDE. 1474 * Fixed a bug causing multiple auto-replacements in a single message 1475 not to work. 1476 * Made it possible to include syntax normally used to refer to a sub- 1477 group of the matching pattern as normal text in the replacement pat- 1478 tern of a regular expression auto-replace, by escaping it like this: 1479 %%1. 1480 * Fixed a bug causing an empty MODE message to be sent to the server 1481 preceding the correct one when using /op, /deop and the like. 1482 * Fixed a bug causing as many mode chars as target nicknames given to 1483 commands like /op, /deop etc. to be sent as part of every single re- 1484 sultant MODE messages sent to the server, despite one MODE message 1485 being generated for every group of three target nicknames. I.e. "/op 1486 foo foo foo foo" would result in "MODE +oooo foo foo foo" and "MODE 1487 +oooo foo", when it should only be "+ooo" and "+o", respectively. 1488 * Added support for amarok:// URLs in chat text views and channel to- 1489 pics. 1490 * Fixed a bug causing Konversation to treat "Page Up" and "Page Down" 1491 key events with any modifier (e.g. Ctrl) the same as without any mo- 1492 difier, making such combinations unavailable as shortcuts for other 1493 actions. 1494 * Fixed a bug causing the status bar to remain stuck displaying the 1495 description of a menu action if subsequently hovering other actions 1496 without a description set. 1497 * The Watched Nicknames Online, URL Catcher and Channel List tabs now 1498 use a toolbar at the top rather than a row of buttons at the bottom 1499 for their various actions, consistent with the Log Viewer and the 1500 (redesigned for 1.2) DCC Status tabs. Aside from a nicer UI this has 1501 the side benefit of reducing the minimum window width with any of 1502 these tabs open. 1503 * Further work on reducing the use of the qt3support/kde3support lib- 1504 raries throughout the codebase. 1505 * The design of the search bar has been made more consistent with the 1506 search bars found in other KDE applications (e.g. Konqueror, Konso- 1507 le and KWrite). 1508 * Added a "--noautoconnect" command line argument to disable auto-co- 1509 nnecting to any IRC networks on application startup. 1510 * The invite dialog now has a drop-down offering the options "Always 1511 ask", "Always join" and "Always ignore" for future default behavior, 1512 rather than just a "Don't ask again" checkbox that wasn't sufficient 1513 to cover all scenarios. 1514 * The "Hide Nicklist" action has been renamed "Show Nicklist" to com- 1515 ply with the KDE 4 HIG. 1516 * URLs are no longer decoded before being passed to the web browser, 1517 fixing the opening of some links from the chat text view. 1518 * Fixed a bug causing the application to crash when pressing the left 1519 or right arrow keys after selecting an active file transfer in the 1520 DCC Status tab's transfer list when using Qt 4.6. 1521 * Improved performance of the DCC Status tab's transfer list. 1522 * It's now possible to add nicknames to the Watched Nicknames Online 1523 list, as well as remove them, right from the tab rather than having 1524 to go to the config dialog. 1525 * Fixed a bug that would cause the "Choose Association" KDE address 1526 book integration action to create a new contact in the address book. 1527 * It's now possible to add a nickname to the watch list of all net- 1528 works in the Watched Nicknames Online tab at once. 1529 * Fixed a bug causing the opening of all bookmarks in a bookmark fol- 1530 der at once not to work. 1531 * The ban list interface has seen a facelift. The new way of working 1532 with the list makes it very easy to use an existing list entry as 1533 a starting point, modify it and then decide between replacing the 1534 original ban with the new version or adding it as an additional ban. 1535 * The topic history list in the Channel Settings dialog has seen a 1536 number of behavioral and reliability improvements. 1537 * Updated various dialog layouts to better comply with the alignment 1538 rules of the KDE 4 HIG. 1539 * The URL list in the URL catcher tab now sports a new Date column 1540 and can be sorted. The sorting settings are saved and restored 1541 across sessions. 1542 * Fixed a bug causing the vertical spacing inbetween the regular mode 1543 checkboxen on the "Modes" tab of the Channel Settings dialog to 1544 change when the display of the advanced mode list was toggled or 1545 the dialog was resized. 1546 * The Join Channel dialog now sports a combo box listing all open co- 1547 nnections (and the nicknames used on them, to be able to tell mul- 1548 tiple connections to the same network apart), with the connection 1549 owning the active tab automatically pre-selected. This allows one 1550 to pick the connection to join the channel on regardless of the 1551 active tab at the time the dialog is invoked (e.g. via the keyboard 1552 shortcut). Previously, the dialog would only operate on the connec- 1553 tion owning the active tab (and display it in a static label), 1554 possibly requiring one to switch to a suitable tab first. 1555 * Fixed a bug causing the "Clear History" item in the context menu of 1556 the channel combobox in the "Join Channel" dialog not to clear the 1557 history correctly; while it would be gone for as long as the dialog 1558 was open, it would be back when closing and reopening the dialog. 1559 * Fixed a bug causing a crash on Windows when middle-clicking the chat 1560 text view. 1561 * Fixed a bug causing the pasting of clipboard contents using keyboard 1562 shortcuts not to work when the chat text has keyboard focus. 1563 * Fixed a bug causing the setting or removing of a 'q' channel mode to 1564 be mistakenly announced as giving or taking channel owner privileges 1565 on networks where it's actually a type of ban. 1566 * Fixed a bug causing a crash when pressing the "Ok" button in the 1567 "Join Channel" dialog without entering anything in the dialog's 1568 "Channel:" input field beforehand. 1569 * More robust Unicode handling to make interaction with the D-Bus dae- 1570 mon more reliable. 1571 1572 1573 Changes from 1.2 to 1.2.1: 1574 This second release in the Konversation 1.2.x release series for KDE 4 1575 adds a number of new features to the bookmarks system and support for 1576 reacting to changes in network availability as signaled by KDE's Solid, 1577 along with a number of fixes for bugs discovered since version 1.2 was 1578 released last month. 1579 1580 1581 * Fixed a crash when cancelling the warning dialog that is shown upon 1582 receiving two incoming DCC file transfer requests using the same file 1583 name. 1584 * Fixed a crash when using the "Clear Completed" action in the DCC Sta- 1585 tus tab after having previously used the "Clear" action to remove spe- 1586 cific transfers from the transfer list. 1587 * Fixed a crash when using the "Clear" or "Clear Completed" action in the 1588 DCC Status tab after creating a mixed selection of removable (e.g. com- 1589 pleted, or failed) and non-removable (e.g. sending) transfers and the 1590 last addition to the selection was a removable transfer. 1591 * Added a "Bookmark Tabs as Folder" feature. 1592 * Added the ability to open the contents of an entire bookmark folder at 1593 once (aka "Open Folder in Tabs"). 1594 * Made the default generated bookmark titles more verbose: The Format is 1595 now "Channel (Network-or-Server)". 1596 * Added support for reacting to changes in network availability as re- 1597 ported by KDE's Solid subsystem. If the network goes down, Konversa- 1598 tion will now no longer make futile attempts to reconnect the affect- 1599 ed connections. Instead, it will reconnect once the network comes back 1600 up. 1601 * Variable expansion (%B, %C, %I, etc.) is no longer done in text seg- 1602 ments recognized as URLs to avoid clashes with percent-encoded char- 1603 acters in URLs copied from web browsers, such as German umlauts. 1604 * Made tooltips for truncated labels in the listview version of the tab 1605 bar work again with newer versions of Qt. 1606 * Fixed a bug that caused the Watched Nicknames Online list to show the 1607 wrong or no tooltip when hovering a list item with the mouse pointer. 1608 * The default destination folder for incoming DCC file transfers is now 1609 the "Downloads paths" configured in System Settings or the equivalent 1610 in other desktop environments (under the hood, this is a shared XDG 1611 setting). 1612 * Making and then comitting unrelated changes in the Channel Settings 1613 dialog could cause unintentionally setting the channel's topic to an 1614 older version if someone else had changed the topic since the first 1615 time the dialog was opened or while the dialog was open, due to a bug 1616 in the code that avoids such external topic changes interfering with 1617 concurrent local editing of the topic. This has been fixed. 1618 * The contents of the topic edit field in the Channel Settings dialog 1619 will now reflect the selected item in the topic history list until 1620 the user starts editing. 1621 * Fixed a bug that could cause user mode changes occurring directly af- 1622 ter joining a channel not to be reflected by the channel's nickname 1623 list. 1624 * Fixed a bug causing the "Open File" context menu action for DCC file 1625 transfer items in the transfer list in the DCC Status tab not to work 1626 for incoming file transfers. 1627 * Added support for RPL_HOSTHIDDEN. 1628 1629 1630 Changes from 1.2-rc1 to 1.2: 1631 Konversation 1.2 is the first release of Konversation for the KDE 4 app- 1632 lication platform and desktop environment. In addition to preserving the 1633 full functionality of the KDE 3 version, this release offers a signifi- 1634 cant amount of new features and improvements to the user interface, per- 1635 formance, memory usage, energy efficiency, correctness and stability. 1636 Sum total, the changelog of all development releases since Konversation 1637 1.1 and of this final release combined once again make for the longest 1638 changelog in Konversation's release history. 1639 1640 Some of the highlights compared to Konversation 1.1 include support for 1641 SOCKS v5 and HTTP proxies, a redesigned DCC file transfer user interface 1642 (and much improved DCC code under the hood with several new features, 1643 such as support for IPv6 and DCC REJECT), support for UPnP for NAT tra- 1644 versal, rewritten and much improved support for Blowfish encryption (now 1645 supporting DH1080 key exchange, for example), a significantly better per- 1646 forming channel list, a rewrite of the channel nickname lists for better 1647 performance and improved battery-friendlyness, a new channel join invita- 1648 tion user interface, an improved auto-replace feature, expanded media 1649 player support and many improvements to the IRC protocol implementation. 1650 1651 Enjoy! 1652 1653 1654 * When dragging a link from the chat text view, the drag object will now 1655 contain a plain text version in addition to the URL version. This allows 1656 dragging a link to places that don't accept URL drops, such as Konsole, 1657 the Konqueror address bar or Konversation's own input line. 1658 1659 1660 Changes from 1.2-beta1 to 1.2-rc1: 1661 After a pleasantly uneventful two weeks with beta1, this release candida- 1662 te for our first KDE 4 stable release brings a handful of bugfixes that, 1663 while definitely worth having, are fortunately none too scary. We thus ex- 1664 pect the final Konversation 1.2 release to follow in the very near future. 1665 1666 1667 * Fixed the scrollbar thumb not remaining at the bottom when the chat text 1668 view is resized (such as when the window is resized or the input bar in- 1669 creases in height after typing more than one line with auto-expand mode 1670 enabled). 1671 * Fixed a bug that could cause the progress bar for DCC file transfers not 1672 to be updated when "Fast DCC send" was enabled. 1673 * Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when resuming an incoming DCC file 1674 transfer. 1675 * Fixed characters that require the Alt Gr modifier to be typed (such as 1676 the '@' symbol in German keyboard layouts, for example) not causing key- 1677 board focus to move to the input line when typed while the chat text view 1678 has keyboard focus and thus not showing up in the input line. 1679 * Fixed a bug causing both the link and the marker or remember line to be 1680 selected when a line is appended directly after a link that has just been 1681 clicked. 1682 * Fixed a bug causing the automatic scroll-down not to work when more back- 1683 log is replayed than the viewport can show at once at channel join. 1684 * The "Advanced Modes" listing in the "Modes" tab of the Channel Settings 1685 dialog will now properly vertically expand as the dialog is resized even 1686 to a very large height. 1687 * Fixed a bug that could cause a crash while manipulating a channel's ban 1688 list. 1689 * Fixed a bug causing the moving of child tabs of a network tab in the 1690 treelist version of the tab bar not to work using the keyboard shortcuts, 1691 context menu actions or "Window" menu actions. 1692 1693 1694 Changes from 1.2-alpha6 to 1.2-beta1: 1695 Konversation 1.2-beta1 marks the departure from active feature development 1696 for Konversation 1.2 and the entrance into the much-vaunted halls of bug- 1697 fixing-until-the-final-release, which we expect to materialize in early 1698 October. Until then, you can enjoy what this beta has to offer: HTTP and 1699 SOCKS v5 proxy support, further redesign of the DCC Status tab (many of 1700 you will be happy to find the minimum window size with the DCC Status tab 1701 open much reduced now), the long-awaited return of marker and remember 1702 lines and the resurrection of link dragging from the text display widget 1703 are of particular note, but the changelog has the details on a variety of 1704 other additions, plus the usual assortment of bugfixes, as well. 1705 1706 1707 * Added a topic widget for Konsole windows and hooked it up to the KPart's 1708 setWindowCaption signal 1709 * Added tooltips to items in the new DCC transfer lists that describe the 1710 transfer's status more verbosely. 1711 * Fixed the OSD stealing focus when it appears on Windows. 1712 * Running DCC file transfers are now properly aborted on application quit. 1713 * Removed the 'ucs2' encoding from the encoding list, as it is is not sup- 1714 ported on IRC. This also resolves a crash when sending messages after 1715 selecting it (however the crashing codepath has been independently made 1716 more robust as well). 1717 * Fixed a crash when sending a message containing only spaces. 1718 * Added a "Manage Profiles" button to the information area above the ter- 1719 minal area in Konsole tabs. 1720 * Added SOCKS v5 and HTTP proxy support. Proxy credentials are stored in 1721 KWallet. 1722 * Moved the buttons in the DCC Status tab to a toolbar, similar to how 1723 things were already laid out in log viewer tabs. 1724 * Redesigned the DCC transfer info panel in the DCC Status tab to have a 1725 smaller minimum size. This should mean that less people will see their 1726 window size increase when a DCC transfer is initiated, as it reduces 1727 the minimum size of the window with the DCC Status tab open. 1728 * Added a "Clear Completed" item to the DCC Status tab's toolbar. 1729 * Fixed a crash on the processing of illegal lines sent by the server that 1730 contain only spaces (as sent by the buggy lidegw lide.cz gateway script). 1731 * Made DCC transfer speed reporting more reliable. 1732 * Fixed sorting the transfer list in the DCC Status tab by its "Started At" 1733 column. Previously, sorting by that column would sort alphabetically by 1734 the string value of the fields rather than properly by date. 1735 * Fixed the Channel Settings no longer disabling interface elements allow- 1736 ing the manipulation of channel properties when the user lacks the ne- 1737 cessary operator privileges in the channel. 1738 * The position of the splitter handle determining the size of the info pa- 1739 nel in the DCC Status tab is now saved across application restarts. 1740 * Fixed a crash when changing settings after the "Insert Character" dialog 1741 had been used. 1742 * When an attempt to set up a port forward via UPnP fails, an error message 1743 stating as much will now be shown in the currently active or last active 1744 tab for the associated IRC server connection. 1745 * Made the '/amsg' command work properly again. 1746 * Fixed two close icons (one on the left, one on the right) being shown on 1747 tabs when close buttons were enabled and the tabs were in top or bottom 1748 position. 1749 * Fixed incorrect colors in the listview version of the tab bar when ini- 1750 tially switching to it within a session. 1751 * Fixed a regression vs. the KDE 3 version that caused a failure to correct- 1752 ly parse shortened IPv6 addresses except when using RFC 2732-style bracket 1753 notation and explicitly stating a port to connect to. 1754 * Made the display of server address and port number in various connection- 1755 related chat view messages more consistent and IPv6-friendly (with the 1756 '<ip>:<port>' forward previously used, it could be hard to tell where the 1757 IP ended and the port began -- now it's '<ip> (port <port>)'). 1758 * Updated the scripting documentation to talk about D-Bus rather than DCOP. 1759 * The initial width of the nickname lists in channel tabs is now more sen- 1760 sible. 1761 * Added back the ability to drag links out of the chat view. 1762 * Resurrected the RTL text support in the chat view. 1763 * Fixed a crash during UPnP discovery when the router doesn't respond in 1764 the expected way. 1765 * Various actions that operate on the active tab (e.g. those found in the 1766 "Insert" menu) are now properly disabled when the last tab is closed. 1767 * Fixed a bug with Qt 4.5 where after closing a tab a tab adjacent to it 1768 would briefly be activated before subsequently activating the tab that 1769 was active before the just closed one (i.e. only noticable when 'a tab 1770 adjacent to the just closed tab' and 'the previously active tab' are not 1771 the same). 1772 * Marker lines and the remember line are back. 1773 * Fixed a bug that could cause queue flushing rates to be entered into the 1774 configuration that would prevent successfully connecting to Freenode and 1775 potentially other IRC networks. 1776 1777 1778 Changes from 1.2-alpha5 to 1.2-alpha6: 1779 Konversation 1.2-alpha6 is primarily a hotfix release addressing a serious 1780 DCC crash that we unfortunately only discovered after releasing alpha5. To 1781 sweeten the offer, however, it also includes a nicer DCC tranfer list that 1782 separates incoming and outgoing transfers into distinct categories, allows 1783 you to enable/disable individual columns and saves the sort column and di- 1784 rection across application restarts. Furthermore, Konsole tabs may now be 1785 renamed and there's also a fix for the handling of certain rare mode cha- 1786 racters. 1787 1788 1789 * The transfer list in the DCC Status tab now separates items into "Inco- 1790 ming Transfers" and "Outgoing Transfers" categories, using the same ca- 1791 tegory headers employed in System Settings and other places throughout 1792 KDE 4. 1793 * It's now possible to enable/disable the display of individual columns of 1794 the transfer list in the DCC Status tab. This is remembered across app- 1795 lication restarts. 1796 * The sort column and direction of the transfer list in the DCC Status tab 1797 is now remembered across application restarts when using Qt 4.5 or higher. 1798 * A "Rename Tab..." action has been added to the context menu of Konsole 1799 tabs. 1800 * Fixed a crash when the client observes channel modes being modified that 1801 carry a parameter when used as user modes. 1802 * Fixed a crash when an incoming active or outgoing passive DCC file trans- 1803 fer either timed out or was manually aborted while in "Connecting" state." 1804 1805 1806 Changes from 1.2-alpha4 to 1.2-alpha5: 1807 Konversation 1.2-alpha5 features significant performance and memory usage 1808 improvements in several areas of the application, such as channel nickname 1809 lists, backlog loading, Channel List tabs and the URL Catcher - the latter 1810 two have also seen a fair number of interface refinements, making them much 1811 more enjoyable to use. The DCC subsystem has seen the addition of IPv6 sup- 1812 port and a '/dcc get' command to accept an incoming file transfer from the 1813 input line. Various smaller additions and improvements have been made as 1814 well, including the usual share of bug fixes. 1815 1816 1817 * Added back "Do not ask again" checkbox missing in the rewritten invita- 1818 tion dialog that appeared in v1.2-alpha4. By implication, the dialog now 1819 also observes the "Automatically join channel on invite" option from the 1820 "Warning Dialogs" page in the configuration dialog again. 1821 * Fixed problems reconnecting an SSL-enabled connection using a self-sign- 1822 ed certificate. 1823 * Fixed a build problem with KDE trunk (i.e. what will one day be KDE 4.4). 1824 * Fixed loading and saving of the settings toggling the invitation and mul- 1825 ti-line paste warning dialogs in the "Warning Dialogs" page of the con- 1826 figuration dialog. 1827 * Improved wording of the description of the invitation dialog setting in 1828 the "Warning Dialogs" page of the configuration dialog to reflect that 1829 the dialog being disabled doesn't imply that the channel the user was 1830 invited to will be joined automatically, as the user might have rejec- 1831 ted the invitation when he got the dialog along with checking "Don't 1832 ask again". 1833 * Decreased memory usage (the objects created for every IRC user encounter- 1834 ed are lighter now). 1835 * Initializing Phonon is now delayed until it is actually needed, resulting 1836 in less memory usage for those not using highlight sound notifications 1837 and less work being done during application startup. 1838 * Fixed DCC file transfer problems with files larger than 4 GB on 32bit sys- 1839 tems, along with some other correctness improvements to the file transfer 1840 code. 1841 * Backlog loading is now more efficient. 1842 * Added IPv6 support for DCC file transfers. 1843 * The fallback default file name for unnamed files received via DCC now con- 1844 tains the date of when the file was received in ISO format. 1845 * Fixed a crash when trying to perform a tab completion with an empty nick- 1846 list (i.e. shortly after joining a big channel, before its nicklist has 1847 been filled in). 1848 * Channel nickname list updating is now more efficient and pleasant to look 1849 at. Rather than resorting the entire list after the addition of a new nick- 1850 name, the nickname is now inserted directly at the correct position (using 1851 a binary search), avoiding a lot of CPU-intensive comparisons between nick- 1852 names. The same optimization is also done for nickname and user status (as 1853 relevant in case "Sort by status" is enabled) changes - rather than trigger- 1854 ing full resorts, items are moved directly to new positions as necessary. 1855 Resorting after both new additions and changes was previously done only 1856 after a delay of one second (as part of a scheme to throttle the update rate 1857 to a maximum of once per second given how CPU-intensive it was), which meant 1858 that new nicknames would initially appear at the end of the list and move to 1859 the correct position only after one second, and that nickname and status 1860 changes were similarly reflected in the sorting only after one second - this 1861 delay has now been eliminated, making the nickname list much snappier in re- 1862 acting to what's going on. 1863 Note however that when more than ten events requiring an update to sorting 1864 occur within one second, a fallback to the old scheme of doing a full resort 1865 at a maximum rate of once per second, after an initial delay of one second, 1866 occurs, as this is believed to be more efficient in situations of very high 1867 activity (such as merges after netsplits). Thus the new scheme described 1868 above should be seen as an additional optimization for the common case. 1869 * In addition to the broad strokes optimization described above, other minor 1870 optimization work has been done on the nickname list updating code, impro- 1871 ving the efficiency of updates further. 1872 * Fixed topic label text color not reacting to system color scheme changes. 1873 * Added a '/dcc get [nick [file]]' command to accept an incoming DCC file 1874 transfer request. 1875 * Fixed a crash when using the 'Insert -> IRC Color...' menu item without 1876 there being any tabs. 1877 * Nickname changes of the discussion partner are now announced in query tabs, 1878 provided the information is available (i.e. when one shares a channel with 1879 the discussion parther, so the server informs Konversation of the nickname 1880 change). 1881 * Fixed building on OpenSolaris. 1882 * The channel item context menu in Channel List tabs now has a "Join Channel" 1883 action, and the list of URLs extracted from the channel topic has been mo- 1884 ved to a sub-menu. 1885 * Increased use of the IRC icons found in recent versions of the Oxygen icon 1886 set. 1887 * Fixed a bug causing the time a user went online not to be displayed in 1888 WHOIS information (provided the server reports it). 1889 * Fixed close button icons not immediately appearing on newly-added tabs when 1890 enabled (a preferences change would cause them to appear). 1891 * A significant revamp of the Channel List code, especially around the way the 1892 list data received from the server is being moved into the UI, has brought 1893 about significantly improved behavior. The application should now no longer 1894 be bogged down for extended periods of time while the list is being process- 1895 ed - in extreme cases, this could even lead to disconnects by timeout. 1896 * The "Apply Filter" button has been removed from the Channel List interface. 1897 Instead, the filter is (re)applied automatically as its settings are chang- 1898 ed, i.e. briefly after stopping to type into the "Filter pattern" field or 1899 after changing one of the spin- or checkboxes. 1900 * Fixed the display of human-readable mode descriptions in place of traditio- 1901 nal mode characters (toggled by the "Show raw mode characters" preference 1902 and only applicable when Konversation knows a description for a given mode 1903 char) being inconsistent between '/mode <channel> and '/mode <channel>/<user> 1904 +/-<mode>' - separate, unequal lists of mode descriptions were being used; 1905 this has been unified now. 1906 * Fixed the "Modes" tab of the Channel Settings dialog not using human-readable 1907 mode descriptions in place of traditional mode characters when the "Show raw 1908 mode characters" preference is disabled (as it is by default) and a descrip- 1909 tion for a given mode char is available. 1910 * Fixed the mode list shown by "Show Advanced Modes" in the "Modes" tab of the 1911 Channel Settings dialog not showing all modes announced as supported by the 1912 server. 1913 * The Channel List, when hovering a list item with the mouse pointer, now shows 1914 a tooltip with the entire topic of the channel when it doesn't fit the topic 1915 column's width. 1916 * Konversation will now display a warning dialog box when the user is trying 1917 to send a character not supported by the chosen encoding. 1918 * When a message containing characters not supported by the chosen encoding 1919 is sent, the chat view will now display the '?' replacements for those cha- 1920 racters that are sent to the IRC server and thus seen by other users. Pre- 1921 viously, the chat view would display the version of the message before 1922 this encoding step, and thus usually show the characters, as the Unicode 1923 character set normally used by KDE/Qt is considerably broader than many 1924 of the encodings that can be selected in Konversation. In other words, the 1925 chat view now accurately portrays what is sent to other users when a mes- 1926 sage contains characters not supported by the active encoding. 1927 * The URL Catcher should now open considerably faster with long lists of 1928 caught URLs and mail addresses. 1929 * The list items in the URL Catcher now have the same context menu as links 1930 in the chat view. Previously there was no context menu. 1931 * Caught mails and mail addresses not coming from an IRC user (an example 1932 would be links contained in a server's Message of the Day text) now have 1933 their "From" field filled in with the tab name instead of it being left 1934 blank in the URL Catcher. 1935 * Fixed a bug causing the DCC Status tab to sometimes prematurely claim a 1936 transfer status of 100%, as well as an unrealistic transfer speed, when 1937 sending a file to another user. The transfer would go on until actually 1938 finished; merely the information shown in the interface was defective. 1939 * Fixed log viewer tabs not observing the chat window background image setting. 1940 * Fixed log viewer tabs not reacting to changes to the chat window background 1941 color or font settings. 1942 * Fixed raw log tabs only applying the chat view background image setting on 1943 configuration changes, not when initially being opened. 1944 * The removal of the frame around the tab widget is now exclusive to KDE 4.3. 1945 We do it by way of enabling document mode for the tab widget (which is new 1946 in Qt 4.5), which renders badly in versions of the Oxygen style found in 1947 KDE versions earlier than 4.3, and the workaround we previously applied to 1948 make it work even with those older Oxygen versions had the unwelcome side- 1949 effect of breaking the application of color preferences to the input bar 1950 and nickname list. 1951 1952 1953 Changes from 1.2-alpha3 to 1.2-alpha4: 1954 Alpha 4 marks a significant milestone on the way to feature completeness 1955 for the v1.2 release of Konversation. New features in this release inclu- 1956 de UPnP NAT traversal support for DCC file transfers and chats, DH1080 1957 key exchange support for Blowfish encryption and the ability to automati- 1958 cally split very long actions (i.e. usage of the '/me' command) into mul- 1959 tiple messages conforming to the maximum length of an IRC message (this 1960 was already supported for regular messages for some time). 1961 1962 Many bugs have also been addressed, including an important fix for invita- 1963 tion dialogs causing disconnects by timeout if they were not dealt with 1964 quickly enough - and not only is the rewritten dialog non-blocking, it also 1965 allows for handling multiple outstanding invitations in a single dialog, 1966 rather than a new dialog being displayed for every additional invitation 1967 received. Other fixes include further interface polish and robustness and 1968 correctness improvements to Blowfish encryption, the Watched Nicks Online 1969 system and the storage of per-tab encoding preferences in the configuration 1970 file. 1971 1972 A closing note for packagers: In this release we have replaced our cus- 1973 tom implementation of the Blowfish encryption algorithm with an optional 1974 dependency on the Qt Cryptographic Architecture (QCA) library in version 1975 2 or higher. By implication, Blowfish encryption support is now optional: 1976 A QCA2-enabled build will have it; a build not using QCA2 will not. 1977 1978 1979 * Changed links to KDE's (and hence our) bug tracker throughout the code- 1980 base to use https://bugs.kde.org/ rather than http://bugs.kde.org/ 1981 * Fixed the "Show Menubar" item not getting removed from the chat view 1982 context view after showing the menubar again. Also added a separator 1983 after the item (only visible when it is present). 1984 * Switched the timestamps in log files to use KDE's locale settings for 1985 formatting the date and time, as the equivalent Qt API used previously 1986 seems to look at the value of LC_NUMERIC to detemine the format in Qt 1987 4, which doesn't meet user expectations. 1988 * Fixed the "Date" column in the topic history of the Channel Options 1989 Dialog not using KDE's locale settings to format the value. 1990 * Fixed the "Date" column in the Channel Settings dialog's topic history 1991 sorting alphabetically rather than by date. 1992 * Improved Windows support in the bundled 'media' script. 1993 * Fixed the vertical alignment of the topic label when using Qt 4.5 (it's 1994 now top-aligned rather than vertically centered, i.e. making the topic 1995 area bigger than the topic by dragging the splitter down won't cause 1996 the topic to move down to stay in the vertical center anymore -- Qt 4.5 1997 is needed because a method to retrieve the document margin from the chat 1998 view to use as the top margin for the topic label is new in that version). 1999 * Fixed various chat view messages containing date/time values (channel 2000 created, topic set, online since, ban info) not using KDE's locale set- 2001 tings for their display format. 2002 * Added support for using UPnP for NAT traversal for DCC file transfers 2003 (both active send and passive receive) and DCC chat. When UPnP is ena- 2004 bled in both Konversation and your router, Konversation now knows how 2005 to ask your router to set up the necessary port forward, and also how 2006 to to ask it to remove it later. 2007 * Added support for the KDE 4 version of JuK to the bundled 'media' script. 2008 * Fixed '/msg <channel> <message>' not displaying the resulting message in 2009 the target channel when the user is attending that channel. 2010 * Made the appearance of the line informing about the message being sent 2011 with '/msg <nick|channel> <message>' consistent between channel, query 2012 and status tabs (it now looks like in the former in the latter two as 2013 well). 2014 * Fixed the visualization of '/msg <nick|channel> <message>' (i.e. the 2015 '<-> target> message' line) being shown only after adding the resul- 2016 ting message to the target chat view (if present), causing an odd-look- 2017 ing order if the origin view and the target view are the same. 2018 * Watched Nicknames Online now generally operates on networks by their 2019 internal unique IDs rather than names, enabling it to handle multiple 2020 configured networks with identical names properly. 2021 * Konversation's custom implementation of Blowfish encryption has been 2022 replaced with an optional dependency on the Qt Cryptographic Architec- 2023 ture (QCA) library version 2. 2024 * The '/setkey [nick|channel] <key>' command now recognizes 'cbc:' (ci- 2025 pher-block chaining) and 'ecb:' (electronic codebook) prefixes in the 2026 key field to set a particular Blowfish block cipher mode of operation, 2027 defaulting to the value of a config dialog preference (Behavior -> Co- 2028 nnection-> Encryption -> Default Encryption Type, the default is Elec- 2029 tronic Codebook (ECB)) when no prefix is given. 2030 * Fixed crash when opening links with ' in them when the "Custom Browser" 2031 preference is enabled in Konversation's config dialog. 2032 * Improved consistency of link opening behavior between the chat view, the 2033 topic label and the URL catcher (all three now use the new-in-KDE-4 KTool- 2034 Invocation API to invoke the KDE default browser, whereas the topic label 2035 and the URL catcher were still using KRun until now). 2036 * Fixed a bug that could cause the state of the spell-checking setting for 2037 the input line to be lost across application restarts. 2038 * Added support for considering square brackets () part of URLs. 2039 * Fixed the code producing multiple JOIN commands for auto-join as neces- 2040 sary to stay under the 512 byte limit for a single command to take the 2041 length of the commas in the commands into account when calculating the 2042 distribution of the channels among the multiple lines, as well as not 2043 to list channels falling at the boundary twice, once in the current and 2044 once in the following line. In English: Fixed auto-join with a massive 2045 amount of channels possibly not joining all channels correctly. 2046 * Fixed a bug causing re-joining of password-protected channels to fail 2047 on reconnects when those channels also had another mode with a parame- 2048 ter set. 2049 * Fixed a bug that caused query lines written by the user that are so long 2050 that they need to be split up into multiple messages not to display in 2051 the query text color. 2052 * Fixed a bug causing query lines written by the user that are so long they 2053 need to be split up into multiple messages for sending not to be displayed 2054 in the configured query text color. 2055 * Fixed the status bar showing HTML data when hovering the contents of the 2056 info label area at the top of query tabs. The data was actually supposed 2057 to be displayed as a tooltip (just like the nickname list item tooltips 2058 in channel tabs), and is now. 2059 * Fixed a bug causing the automatic away system to set the user away again 2060 on the next periodic activity check when no further mouse/keyboard acti- 2061 vity occurs after unlocking the screen/ending the screensaver. 2062 * Implemented splitting up of overly long actions (i.e. usage of the 2063 '/me' command) into multiple messages to stay under the 512 byte message 2064 length limit (in raw format) imposed by the IRC protocol. As with the 2065 normal message splitting, this is aware of how multi-byte/variable-width 2066 text encodings and sender hostmask length (which is part of the message on 2067 the receiving end) factor into the matter. Note that only the first message 2068 is actually sent as an action, the other messages are sent as normal messa- 2069 ges - intentionally, as this seemed to make the most sense formatting-wise. 2070 * Fixed the dialog box appearing upon receiving an invitation to join a chan- 2071 nel causing a disconnect by timeout when not being dealt with by the user 2072 swiftly enough. 2073 * Multiple invitations to join channels are now being handled by a single 2074 dialog box per connection, so that receiving many invitations in short 2075 order no longer means getting flooded with dialog boxes. 2076 * Implemented DH1080 key exchange support for Blowfish encryption. You can 2077 use the '/keyx' command to initiate a key exchange. 2078 * The raw log now shows encrypted incoming and outgoing messages in their 2079 encrypted form. Previously, incoming messages were being decrypted before 2080 being shown, and outgoing messages were being shown before encryption 2081 took place, thus not capturing what was actually coming from or going to 2082 the network socket as is the intent of the raw log. 2083 * Fixed a bug causing unrecognized channel mode characters being shown as 2084 their decimal value in the chat view messages announcing them having been 2085 set or removed. 2086 * Per-tab encoding settings for tabs belonging to a connection to a configu- 2087 red network (i.e. one found in the Server List dialog) now reference the 2088 unique ID rather than the name of the network in the config file, making 2089 things work reliably across restarts even when there are multiple identi- 2090 cally named networks. Encoding config file entries for tabs belonging to 2091 connections to servers that are not part of a configured network continue 2092 to reference the server hostnames. 2093 * Fixed the "(away)" label in front of the input line, indicating away sta- 2094 tus, not showing up in query tabs. 2095 2096 2097 Changes from 1.2-alpha2 to 1.2-alpha3: 2098 This third alpha fixes a fair amount of annoying bugs encountered in 2099 day-to-day usage, as well as a serious bug in handling NAMES messages 2100 from IRC servers. We've also made some UI changes that we'd like to 2101 get your feedback on: We've changed the default tab completion mode 2102 to "Cycle Nicklist", and we've removed the frame around the tab wid- 2103 get when using the listview version of the tab bar. 2104 2105 2106 * Worked around a Qt bug that has a text selection in the chat view that 2107 includes the last line in the view grow to include the new text when 2108 new text is appended to the view. 2109 * Fixed Konversation exposing various signals on D-Bus that it shouldn't 2110 have. 2111 * Fixed a regression causing '/names #channel' to end up duplicating the 2112 nickname list contents when already attending '#channel'. 2113 * When using Qt 4.5, Konversation no longer paints a frame around the UI 2114 elements of a view (e.g. a channel) when using the listview version of 2115 the tab bar. Feedback on this change is appreciated! 2116 * Fixed duplicated messages about DCC transfer failures in the chat view. 2117 * When the menu bar is hidden, the top-most item in the chat view context 2118 menu is now the option to unhide it again. 2119 * Fixed the OSD disappearing also cancelling the system tray blinking no- 2120 tification. 2121 * Fixed a crash on quit by D-Bus / by KDE session logout. 2122 * Fixed the tab completion nickname list sorting behavior for the "Shell- 2123 like" completion modes. The behavior now matches the "Cycle Nicklist" 2124 mode and the "Shell-like" modes of previous Konversation 1.x versions 2125 again: The last active nick for the given prefix is at the top of the 2126 list, with the rest of the list sorted alphabetically. 2127 * The default tab completion mode has been changed to "Cycle Nicklist". 2128 Feedback on this change is appreciated! 2129 * Changed the bundled 'bug' script to perform a quick search with the 2130 given parameter, rather than try to use it as a bug ID directly. The 2131 resulting behavior is unchanged for a numerical parameter, but with 2132 a string, much more useful. 2133 * The 'mail' script, which was disabled in the build system up until now, 2134 is now getting installed again. 2135 * Fixed a bug causing the "Set Encoding" menu not to work. 2136 * Fixed a bug causing the bundled 'media' script not to work when used 2137 to retrieve song information from Amarok 2 for a song which has any 2138 of the following meta data fields not set: title, artist or album. 2139 * Fixed the 'Self' field of the DCC transfer details panel not showing 2140 the port when available. 2141 * Fixed DCC transfers showing an average speed of 1 TB/s in their first 2142 second. 2143 2144 2145 Changes from 1.2-alpha1 to 1.2-alpha2: 2146 After just under a week's worth of adding back some missing functiona- 2147 lity, polishing the interface and, of course, of fixing bugs, we've de- 2148 cided to bring you Konversation 1.2-alpha2. While there were no major 2149 defects discovered in alpha1, this one should yield an overall more re- 2150 fined user experience, and brings us another good step closer to our 2151 first stable release for KDE 4. 2152 2153 2154 * Fixed nicknames in action messages using the message text color when 2155 nick coloring is disabled rather than the correct action text color 2156 as the rest of the message. 2157 * Added back the context menus for nicknames and channel links in the 2158 chat view. 2159 * Fixed the topic/info area in channels, queries and DCC chats, the nick- 2160 name list in channels and the listview variant of the tab bar not keep- 2161 ing their sizes when the window is resized. 2162 * Added missing actions ("Reconnect", "Disconnect", "Join channel ...") 2163 back to the context menu for server status tabs. 2164 * Improved the placement of the "Join on connect" channel tab context 2165 menu item (back under "Enable Notifications" as in v1.1). 2166 * Added the use of some of the new irc-* icons found in recent updates 2167 to the Oxygen icon theme. 2168 * Fixed crash when joining a channel after having been blocked from get- 2169 ting the topic for the channel. 2170 * Made the initial size of the "Edit Network" dialog more reasonable. 2171 * Improved vertical size of and text alignment inside the input line. 2172 * Added back support for drag and drop reordering of views to the list- 2173 view version of the tab bar. 2174 * Added back support for "surfing" in the listview version of the tab 2175 bar by pressing and holding the left mouse button on a view and moving 2176 the mouse up and down in the list view. 2177 * Fixed mouse handling for close buttons in the listview version of the 2178 tab bar. 2179 * Added back support for showing tooltips for truncated view items in 2180 the listview version of the tab bar. 2181 * Fixed crash when receiving lines terminated by LFCRLF from buggy IRC 2182 servers (such as the shroudBNC IRC proxy when it relays a private mes- 2183 sage received while no user was connected to it). 2184 * Worked around a Qt bug that has a text selection in the chat view that 2185 includes the last character in the view grow to include the new text 2186 when new text is appended to the view. 2187 * Sound notifications for highlights now reuse a single Phonon MediaObject 2188 by enqueuing notification sounds rather than instanciate a new one for 2189 every notification, improving resource efficiency and hopefully taking 2190 care of some high CPU usage reports that seemed to be linked to Konver- 2191 sation's Phonon usage. 2192 * Fixed the enabling/disabling of the "Find Previous" action. 2193 * Fixed several bugs in the Server List dialog (sort indicator disappear- 2194 ing while dragging items, stray pixel in the top-left corner of the list- 2195 view, hover decoration while dragging not always showing). 2196 * Improved handling in the Identity editor dialog: When Konversation com- 2197 plains about one or more required fields not being filled in, the dialog 2198 will now put focus on the field when it opens. 2199 * Fixed the 'Self' IP field of the DCC transfer details panel not showing 2200 a value when on the receiving end of a DCC file transfer. 2201 * Handle DCC REJECTs. A DCC SEND is now automatically aborted when the 2202 partner rejects it. 2203 * Fixed a bug causing the ordering of views to be partially reversed when 2204 switching from the listview version of the tab bar to the regular tab bar. 2205 * Improved consistency of the context menu for links between the topic area 2206 and the chat view. 2207 * Fixed repeated searches for the same search pattern (i.e. "Find Next") 2208 sometimes not working reliably with the chat view search bar. 2209 * Minor code cleanups and performance improvements. 2210 2211 2212 Changes from 1.1 to 1.2-alpha1: 2213 We're happy to bring you this first public release of the KDE 4 version of 2214 Konversation. 2215 2216 Despite the "alpha" moniker we've settled on for this one, mostly due to 2217 not yet being feature-complete (see below), this port has already been 2218 used productively by a fair number of people for some time and should be 2219 stable enough for general usage. In fact, certain features, notably DCC 2220 file transfers and auto-replace, are expected to be more robust than in 2221 Konversation 1.1. 2222 2223 While this version largely achieves feature parity with Konversation 1.1 2224 (and adds several new features on top), notable exceptions are the lack 2225 of support for marker lines as well as nick and channel context menus in 2226 the chat view. These are pending the merge of a rewritten chat view and 2227 will make a return before the final Konversation 1.2 release. Other known 2228 issues in this version include a lack of KDE 4 HIG compliance in the con- 2229 figuration dialog and various minor interface polish problems; these will 2230 be addressed as well. 2231 2232 Enjoy, and don't forget to report any bugs you encounter! 2233 2234 2235 * Ported to KDE 4 (KDE 4.1 or higher is required). 2236 * Enabled the (experimental, hackish) Amarok 2 support in the 'media' script. 2237 * Fixed a bug that could cause channel notifications to be lost across recon- 2238 nects. 2239 * Removed the code to recreate hidden-to-tray state across application re- 2240 starts. It was broken after the shutdown procedures were moved to a point 2241 in time after after the main window is hidden to cover quit-by-DCOP, and 2242 Konversation 1.1 features an explicit hidden startup option that fulfills 2243 user demands more accurately anyhow. This fixes a bug that made Konversa- 2244 tion always hide to tray on startup regardless of the aforementioned op- 2245 tion when the system tray icon was enabled. 2246 * Added a network settings lookup fallback to retrieving the key of a channel. 2247 Previously, this relied solely on the channel's mode map. Closes the brief 2248 gap between a channel join and the server's reply to MODE where possible, 2249 so that e.g. reconnecting directly after auto-joining a channel with a key 2250 doesn't result in a failed rejoin due to not having the key by way of the 2251 MODE reply yet. 2252 * Fixed opening URLs from the channel topic context menu in Channel List tabs. 2253 * When connecting to multiple selected unexpanded network items from the Ser- 2254 ver List, don't also try to connect to the hidden server sub-items selected 2255 by implication, avoiding unwanted connection duplicates. 2256 * Mask the password field in the Quick Connect dialog. 2257 * Fixed a bug causing passive DCC file transfers to stall at 99%. 2258 * Fixed "/leave" command in queries. 2259 * Fixed auto-replace rules containing commas in the pattern not being loaded 2260 correctly from the config file. 2261 * Fixed non-regex mode auto-replace rules containing regex special characters 2262 and character sequences not working correctly. 2263 * Improved performance of non-regex mode auto-replace rules. 2264 * Added option to open log files with the system text editor instead of the 2265 built-in log viewer. 2266 * Made the Oxygen nicklist icon theme the default nicklist icon theme. 2267 * Removed the bundled 'weather' script (it relied on a KDE 3 service no lon- 2268 ger present in KDE 4; a replacement will need to adopt a new approach). 2269 * Fix sending and receiving of files with names containing spaces 2270 * DCC Protocol adjustment to proper handle passive DCC resume/accept requests. 2271 (this breaks passive-resume compatibly with <konversation-1.2) 2272 * Send proper DCC reject commands when rejecting a queued receive. 2273 * Improved error recovery during dcc send. 2274 * Fix time left for transfers that finished in under 1 sec displaying infinite 2275 time left. 2276 * Increased default DCC buffer size to 16384 to reduce CPU load while sending 2277 or receiving files. 2278 * Added KNotify events for "Highlight triggered", "DCC transfer complete" 2279 and "DCC transfer error". 2280 * Fixed Automatic User Information Look Up not being started upon channel 2281 join on some IRC servers (namely those that don't send RPL_CHANNELCREATED 2282 after joining a channel, such at those used by IRCnet). 2283 * Updated the server hostname for the pre-configured Freenode network to the 2284 one given on their website these days, 'chat.freenode.net'. 2285 * Added support for browsing the input line history by using the mouse wheel. 2286 * Fixed problems the bundled 'tinyurl' script had with certain URLs by conver- 2287 ting it to use the TinyURL API rather than screen scraping. 2288 * Added initial support for the MODES parameter of RPL_ISUPPORT. When giving 2289 or taking op, half-op or voice to/from multiple people at once, Konversa- 2290 tion will now combine as many of them into a single MODE command as the 2291 server advertises it supports (as long as it advertises an actual value; 2292 the value-less unlimited MODES case is not supported yet as it requires 2293 more work on limiting MODE commands to the 512 byte IRC message buffer 2294 limit for extreme cases). If MODES is not given at all by the server, the 2295 fallback is an RFC1459-compliant value of 3. 2296 * Added support for formatting variable expansion in the replacement part of 2297 auto-replace rules. 2298 * Rewrote multi-line paste editor, improving handling and appearance. 2299 * Added button to intelligently replace line breaks with spaces to the multi- 2300 line paste editor. 2301 2302 2303 Changes from 1.0.1 to 1.1: 2304 We are extremely pleased to announce Konversation's newest major release, v1.1. 2305 Konversation 1.1 is a special release for us in multiple ways: It's our farewell 2306 to KDE 3, by way of being the last major release built upon that venerable 2307 platform. It's also our biggest release yet, in terms of the number and 2308 magnitude of the changes. 2309 2310 The additions and improvements in this release are both user-visible and under 2311 the hood. Some of the highlights are rewritten connection handling (robustness 2312 and correctness improvements, better support for IRC URLs, bookmarking and 2313 more), redone DCC with better UI and Passive/Reverse DCC support, a redone away 2314 system with the addition of auto-away support, redone and much more useful 2315 remember / marker line support, a new outbound traffic scheduler that is capable 2316 of aggressive throttling to avoid flooding while smartly reordering messages to 2317 improve latencies, great convenience additions like a "Next Active Tab" shortcut, 2318 and much, much more, along with a large number of bugfixes and tweaks to round 2319 things out. Note: All fixes made since RC1 are marked with a "[New since RC1]" 2320 label in the changelog. 2321 2322 We're confident that this release is the best and most robust version of 2323 Konversation published so far, and upgrading comes highly recommended to all 2324 users. Enjoy! 2325 2326 2327 Text views 2328 * Added an option to hide the scrollbar in chat windows. 2329 * Don't scroll to bottom if the view was scrolled up before resizing. 2330 * Fixed chat views occassionally not being scrolled to the bottom at their 2331 inception with long backlog appends. 2332 * Fixed an off-by-one error in scrollback culling. 2333 * Fixed a bug that lead to single leading whitespace characters in lines being 2334 omitted from display in chat windows. 2335 * Now preserving trailing whitespace in raw log tabs. 2336 * Fixed display of '<' and '>' in backlog lines. 2337 * Fixed copy/paste with shortcuts other than the default Ctrl+C/V ones. 2338 * Fixed onotice display. 2339 * Fixed middle-click-to-open-in-new-tab on chat window URLs when Konqueror 2340 wasn't running. 2341 * Fixed superfluous closing parenthesis being inserted after links in lines 2342 which contain multiple links followed by closing parentheses. 2343 * Fixed URLs with encoded hash mark %23 being incorrectly passed off to handler. 2344 * Fixed variable expansion causing certain URLs to be corrupted when pasted. 2345 * Added a "Save Link As" item to the context menu of links in the chat window. 2346 * Have the "Save as..." dialog suggest a file name. 2347 * Implemented Shift+Click to "Save as..." URLs.. 2348 * Made the channel links context menu work in server status views. 2349 * Fixed nickname links in chat view messages created as a result of '/msg <nick> 2350 <message>' commands erroneously prepending '->' to nicknames. 2351 * Fixed operations on nicknames containing "\" characters from the nickname 2352 context menu. 2353 * Fixed query view context menus operating on the wrong nickname under certain 2354 circumstances. 2355 * Fixed a bug that caused the "Send File..." action in the generic query context 2356 menu to pick the wrong recipient after hovering the user's own nick in the 2357 chat display. 2358 * Fixed date display not using the locale's date format. 2359 * Fixed IRC color parsing so that the colors gets reset to default if no color 2360 numbers were given. 2361 * Fixed a bug that could cause the text selection in a chat window to be messed 2362 up when new text was appended. 2363 2364 Marker/Remember Lines 2365 * Konversation now distinguishes between manually and automatically inserted 2366 marker lines, making the "show line in all chat windows" preference less 2367 confusing. 2368 * The automatically inserted remember lines when chat windows are hidden are now 2369 "sliding", i.e. there is only one per chat window, and it moves. 2370 * Automatically inserted remember lines will now optionally only be inserted 2371 when there's actually new text being appended to the chat window (enabled by 2372 default). 2373 * The automatic remember line will now also be inserted when the window has lost 2374 focus. 2375 * Added an action to clear all marker lines in a chat window. 2376 * Improved marker lines-related preferences and terminology. 2377 * Improved the appearance of marker lines in the chat window. 2378 * Made the (marker line-related and other) identity default settings consistent 2379 between the initial identity and additional newly created identities. 2380 * Fixed hidden join/part/quit events marking tabs as dirty, allowing multiple 2381 consecutive remember lines to appear. 2382 * Fixed crash when minimizing or closing the application window prior to any tab 2383 switch when the auto-insertion of remember lines is enabled. 2384 2385 Input line 2386 * Fixed input line contents rather than actual sent text being appended to the 2387 input history upon a multi-line paste edit. 2388 * Special characters and IRC color codes will now be inserted at the cursor 2389 position rather than the end of the input line contents. 2390 2391 Nickname list 2392 * Implemented an additional "Sort by activity" nicklist sorting mode. 2393 * Added Oxygen nicklist icon theme by Nuno Pinheiro. 2394 * The list of nickname list themes is now sorted alphabetically. 2395 * Fixed race condition when removing a nicklist theme (listview would be 2396 repopulated before deletion was complete). 2397 * Fixed using the wrong palette for the disabled text color in the nickname 2398 list. 2399 * Fixed moving back from the custom alternate background color to system colors 2400 in the channel nickname listviews when disabling the "Use custom colors for 2401 lists, [...]" preference. 2402 * Cleanups in the nicklist item code. 2403 2404 Tab bar / Tree list 2405 * Added option to add and remove a channel from its network's auto-join list 2406 from the tab context menu. 2407 * Added option to close tabs using middle-mouse. 2408 * Slightly sped up tab switching by eliminating some redundant UI action state 2409 updates. 2410 * Channel tabs will no longer close when kicked, but rather grey out on the tab 2411 bar and offer context menu actions to rejoin. 2412 * Channel and query tabs will now grey out on the tab bar when disconnected and 2413 no higher priority notification is present. Channel tabs will only ungrey if 2414 and when the channel is successfully rejoined after reconnect; query tabs 2415 ungrey immediately once reconnected. 2416 * Display tooltips for truncated treelist items. 2417 * Fixed forwarding keyboard events received by the treelist to Konsole widgets 2418 and focus adjustment thereafter as well as generally after switching to 2419 Konsole tabs by other means. 2420 * Fixed treelist scrollbar not picking up on new palette when the KDE color 2421 scheme changes. 2422 * Fixed a bug that could cause a crash when the view treelist would receive 2423 keypress events during application shutdown. 2424 * [New since RC1] Fixed a corner case where a server status item could become a 2425 child item of another server status item when dragging it below an special 2426 application pane item such as DCC Status or Watched Nicks Online. 2427 * [New since RC1] Fixed a crash when using the mouse wheel on the list within 2428 ~150ms of a drag and drop operation. 2429 2430 System Tray icon 2431 * Remember and recreate minimized-to-tray state across sessions. 2432 * Added option for hidden-to-tray startup. 2433 * Reload tray icons when the icon theme changes at runtime. 2434 * Added option to not blink the systray icon, but just light it up. 2435 2436 Channel Settings Dialog 2437 * Added a search line to the ban list. 2438 * Fixed sorting the ban list by time set. 2439 * Made the ban list's "Time Set" column use KDE locale settings for the date 2440 format. 2441 * Fixed OK'ing/Cancel'ing/closing the Channel Settings Dialog not dealing with 2442 open ban list in-line edits correctly. 2443 * Reset topic editbox when the channel options dialog has been dismissed with 2444 cancel. 2445 * Fixed incorrect time display in the topic history list in the Channel Settings 2446 dialog. 2447 2448 Server List Dialogs 2449 * Moved the "Show at application startup" option for the Server List dialog to 2450 the dialog itself. 2451 * Auto-correct hostnames and passwords entered with preceding or trailing spaces 2452 in the Server List dialog. 2453 * Don't allow impossible ports to be set for servers. 2454 * Sensible default focus in the server list dialog. 2455 * Fixed unresponsive, defective Server List dialog window appearing at 2456 application startup using the Beryl or Compiz compositing window managers. 2457 2458 Interface Misc 2459 * Added a "Next Active Tab" keyboard shortcut to jump to the next active tab with 2460 the highest priority notification. 2461 * Added a Find Previous standard action. 2462 * Have the "Insert Character" dialog pick up on text view font changes. 2463 * Show correct number of colors in the color chooser dialog. 2464 * Made "Alternate Background" colorchooser disable when unneeded. 2465 * Fixed crash when changing the KDE color scheme while a non-chat tab is open. 2466 * The encoding selection now allows returning to the used identity's default 2467 encoding setting. 2468 * Update actions on charset changes. 2469 * Added Notifications Toggle and Encoding sub-menu to the window menu. 2470 * Moved "Hide Nicklist" menu action from Edit to Settings. 2471 * Fixed the "Automatically join channel on invite" setting not to show an 2472 inquiring dialog anyway. 2473 * Fixed saving the state of the invitation dialog option in the Warning Dialogs 2474 preferences. 2475 * Added a warning dialog for quitting with active DCC file transfers. 2476 * Return focus to the text display widget after closing the search bar in a log 2477 reader view. 2478 * Made pressing Return or Enter in the Log File Viewer's size spinbox apply the 2479 setting, just as pressing the Return button. 2480 * Fixed a bug where the SSL padlock icon would be shown on a non-SSL connection 2481 (and clicking would cause a crash). 2482 * Empty topic labels will no longer show empty tooltips, but rather none at all. 2483 * Added a sample 12-hour clock format string to the timestamp format combobox. 2484 * Timestamp format list is no longer localized. 2485 * Robustness improvements and less UI quirks around channel password handling. 2486 * Improved general layout and consistency of tab, chat view, query and topic 2487 context menus. Added some missing icons. 2488 * Fixed some bugs of UI actions not being appropriately as their context 2489 changes. 2490 * Fixed enabled state of "Close All Open Queries" action not being updated 2491 correctly when queries are closed by way of closing a status view tab. 2492 * The window caption is now properly being reset when the last tab is closed. 2493 * Made units in spinboxen in the identity and app preferences UI more 2494 consistent. 2495 * Minor fixes to accelerators and tabbing order in various dialogs. 2496 2497 Commands 2498 * Support command aliases in network connect commands. 2499 * Turned parameter-less '/away' into a toggle: Sets away state with default 2500 message initially, and unsets away state if already away. 2501 * Added an '/aunaway' command to complement '/aaway' (previously, there was only 2502 '/aback'). 2503 * Added support for '/kill'. 2504 * A '/join' command for an already-joined channel will now focus it. 2505 * Added an '/encoding' command as an alias to '/charset'. 2506 * '/charset' and '/encoding' now accept 'latin-1' as an alias for 'iso-8859-1'. 2507 * Improved messages for the '/charset' and '/encoding' commands. 2508 * Rewrote /me parsing to be less hackish and display usage info with an empty 2509 parameter. 2510 * '/msg <nick>' is no longer treated as equivalent to '/query <nick>'. 2511 * '/msg <nick>' will now error out when lacking a message parameter. 2512 * '/query <recipient> [message]' will now error out when recipient is a channel. 2513 * Added a '/queuetuner' command to bring up the outbound traffic scheduler's 2514 tuning/debug pane. 2515 2516 Notifications 2517 * Seperated query messages and messages containing the user's nickname into two 2518 distinct KNotify events. 2519 * Made the tab notification color of private messages configurable independently 2520 from normal messages. 2521 * Don't highlight own nick on topic created by messages. 2522 * Fixed disabling notifications for a tab not cancelling highlight sounds. 2523 * Fixed a race condition where a highlight's autotext reply would outrun the 2524 original line's tab notification. 2525 * Fixed actions in queries and DCC chats producing message notification events 2526 (rather than the correct private message ones). 2527 * Changed the OSD screensaver check logic to work in KDE 4. 2528 * [New since RC1] Fixed on screen display occassionally reverting to the default 2529 position when using the settings dialog to change unrelated settings. 2530 2531 Connection handling 2532 * Improved behavior with regard to reusing existing connections in connection 2533 attempts that provide an initial channel to join, such as command line 2534 arguments, the DCOP interface, the bookmark system or irc:// links). 2535 Previously, the application would have inconsistently either reused an 2536 existing or created a new connection. 2537 * Better dialog messages in the interactive variant of the decision to either 2538 reuse or create a new connection (from the Server List dialog and the Quick 2539 Connect dialog). 2540 * Improved and more consistent display of connection names (i.e. network or 2541 server host name) throughout the application. 2542 * Much improved irc:// URL support for connection intanciation, with support 2543 added for IPv6 host names and many of the features proposed by the Mirashi 2544 specification. 2545 * Eliminated redundant irc:// URL parsing codepaths in favor of a single one. 2546 * Added support for irc:// URLs to the chat views. 2547 * Removed "konversationircprotocolhandler" shell script. The Konversation 2548 executable now understands irc:// URLs directly. 2549 * Initiating connections from command line arguments and options now works also 2550 when the application is already running. 2551 * Fixed a bug that would cause a connection initiated from command line options 2552 not to get past the identity validation stage when the configuration file was 2553 unitialized and empty. 2554 * The server list dialog will now always be closed when starting Konversation 2555 with command line arguments to initiate a connection, consistent with the 2556 configuration-based auto-connect behavior. 2557 * Providing a channel in the creation of a new connection (i.e. via command line 2558 arguments, the DCOP interface, the Quick Connect dialog, the bookmark system 2559 or irc:// links) now consistently pre-empts the stored auto-join channel list 2560 if the target of the connection is a network or the hostname is found to be 2561 part of a configured network. Previously, this would only work for Quick 2562 Connect and the bookmark system (which caused the infamous Sabayon user flood 2563 in #kde due to their "Get Support" desktop link connecting to Freenode, which 2564 in an unconfigured Konversation has #kde in its auto-join list). 2565 * Connections now have globally unique IDs. 2566 * The DCOP interface now understands connection IDs in addition to host names. 2567 * The scripting systems now uses globally unique connection IDs rather than 2568 server host names to refer to connections, fixing a bug where scripted 2569 responses were being handed to all connections sharing a hostname (which was 2570 actually intentional in the absence of connection IDs, but undesirable for 2571 users). 2572 * Improved iteration behavior over a network's server list on connection losses. 2573 * The "Reconnect" action now works also when Konversation doesn't consider the 2574 connection to be in a disconnected state. 2575 * Improved the server status view messages related to reconnection attempts. 2576 * Consistently apply the "Reconnect delay" setting (previously confusingly named 2577 "Reconnect timeout"), which wasn't done before. 2578 * Fixed a bug that could cause the connection process to claim that a DNS lookup 2579 was successful when it actually wasn't. 2580 * Fixed opening bookmarks with spaces in the target address name (which may be a 2581 network name, and networks may have spaces in their name). 2582 * Properly update the state of the "Add/Remove to Watched Nicknames" nickname 2583 context menu actions when the connection isn't to a config-backed network, in 2584 which case there's no way to store and make use of those list entries. 2585 * Fixed a crash when quitting the application with a resident connection that 2586 disconnected due to an SSL error. 2587 * Fixed crashes in the DCOP interface if no connection was present. 2588 * Make the "Reconnect" action available even while ostensibly in the process of 2589 connecting. 2590 * Fix possible crash when closing all views and subsequently creating a new 2591 connection. 2592 * Fixed crash upon auto-connect at application startup. 2593 * Improved the naming of preferences related to automatic reconnection attempts 2594 to be less confusing. 2595 * Made it possible to set the number of automatic reconnection attempts to 2596 unlimited. 2597 * Provided better default values to the preferences related to automatic 2598 reconnection attempts. 2599 * Fixed crash when opening a Konsole tab and Konsole was not installed. 2600 * Fixed allowing the user to create an infinite loop of showing the SSL 2601 connection details dialog upon being presented with the invalid certificate 2602 multiple choice dialog at connection time by checking "Do not ask again" and 2603 then clicking "Details". 2604 2605 Identities 2606 * Made it possible to set a Quit message independently from the Part message. 2607 * Saving a newly-created identity is no longer allowed without entering a real 2608 name. 2609 * Apply switching the identity in the identity dialog as opened from the network 2610 dialog to the network's settings. 2611 *

sense and update its state properly. 2619 * Turned parameter-less '/away' into a toggle: Sets away state with default 2620 message initially, and unsets away state if already away. 2621 * Added an '/aunaway' command to complement '/aaway' (previously, there was only 2622 '/aback'). 2623 * Broadly rewrote away management related code for improved robustness and less 2624 duplication and hacks (e.g. no more abuse of multiServerCommand for global 2625 away). 2626 2627 DCC 2628 * Massive DCC refactoring and improved reliability. 2629 * Passive DCC support (Reverse DCC RECV, SEND). 2630 *

initiating a DCC send. 2639 Fixes a bug of dragging a nickname link in the chat view onto the query chat 2640 view drop target starting a DCC transfer that cannot succeed. 2641 * Ported the DCC code away from relying on server group IDs to refer to 2642 connections, made it use connection IDs instead. Fixes potential bugs with 2643 multiple concurrent connections to the same network. 2644 * Fixed queued DCC transfer items not picking up on download destination 2645 directory changes. 2646 * Fixed bug leading to crash upon initiating DCC Chat when "Focus new tabs" was 2647 enabled. 2648 * [New since RC1] New transfer items added to the DCC panel's transfer list are no 2649 longer automatically selected, meaning work on other items in the list occuring 2650 at the same time no longer gets interrupted. 2651 * [New since RC1] The "Filename:" line in the DCC panel's detailed info pane is 2652 now using text squeezing to avoid an increase in minimum window width with long 2653 file names. 2654 * [New since RC1] Failed receives now longer show 833TB/s as their transfer 2655 speed. 2656 2657 Blowfish support 2658 * Fixed FiSH-style +p prefix to send clear text to channel despite an encryption 2659 key being set. 2660 * Text encoding is now being applied to the cleartext, rather than the 2661 ciphertext.
