=== General ===

* Configuration file handling changes:
15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26 27 28 29 30 31 32 33
+ Additionally to factory and vendor (/etc/bs-ng_vendor.ini) configuration
  BashStyle-NG now also checks for user backup (${HOME}/.bs-ng.ini.save)
  configuration when resetting configuration
+ Before using user backup or vendor configuration in any way do a dry-load
  to ensure the files are in proper shape, if they contain errors skip them
+ When the configuration file can't be loaded due errors, let BashStyle-NG
  auto-reset the configuration using
  .
  user backup (if it exists) > vendor configuration (if it exists) >
  factory configuration (in that order)
  .
  This prevents BashStyle-NG from crashing if there's something wrong with the
  user configuration file
+ Added new Category "Configuration" which allows to:
  .
  - Backup
  - Restore (from user backup configuration)
  - delete Backup configuration
  - Reset (reset from vendor or factory configuration) the configuration
34 35 36 37 38 39
  - Edit various configuration files (uses xdg-open to open files), namely
    - .bashrc
    - .bashstyle.custom (bashrc-extension always loaded after BashStyle-NG,
      thus can use BashStyle-NG variables and functions reliably)
    - .vimrc.custom (vimrc extension that is not managed by BashStyle-NG)
    - .inputrc.custom (inputrc extension that is not managed by BashStyle-NG)
40 41 42 43 44
  .
  also shows version of user, user backup, vendor and factory configuration
  files (None for vendor and user backup if they don't exist)
+ icon name for this category in UI: bs-ng-config
+ after configuration is restored or reset the application is restarted
45

46
* StartUp mechanism changes:
47 48 49 50 51 52 53 54 55 56
+ Before BashStyle-NG embedded into /etc/bash.bashrc or /etc/bashrc to add
  a startup entry to ${HOME}/.bashrc
  .
  Now if ${HOME}/.bashrc does not contain a startup entry for BashStyle-NG
  the user is presented a tab page upon UI start asking whether to add
  the entry
  .
  Also works when the startup entry for BashStyle-NG is commented out, or if
  the entry is from a previous installation of BashStyle-NG that had a different
  installation prefix.
57

58
* PS2 / PS3 / PS4 changes:
59 60 61 62 63 64 65 66
+ Before there's been an option for PS234. Setting this to ">" resulted in:
  .
  PS2=">"
  PS3=">>"
  PS4=">>>"
  .
  Now there's an separate option for each (including a color option each)
+ additionally PS2 / PS3 / PS4 export does now honor enable_colors setting
67

68
* History Sync changes:
69 70 71 72 73 74 75 76
+ BashStyle-NG 9.1 introduced a custom history sync functionality (for syncing
  history over simultaneously running sessions), which turned out not to properly
  operate when the History Control Type was set to "Erase Duplicates"
  .
  This is now worked around by a custom _erasehistorydups function, which does
  the clean-up where Bash fails due to the custom history handling functions.
  .
  please note that this might slow down Bash a bit if you have a huge history

Overview of changes in v9.1 "Dial T for TNT"

=== Bug Fixes ===

* #187 (vim-rc):
	set softtabstop instead of shiftwidth for setting tab length
114 115
* #188 (keybindings-rc):
	some of the keybindings set from UI didn't take effect
116 117
* #189 (colorshell):
	option colorshell_reset did not work
118 119 120
* #190 (bashstyle.sh/nx-rc):
	improve start-up mechanism, so that PS1 definied in ${HOME}/.bashrc
	does not override PS1 set by BashStyle-NG
121

122 123 124 125 126
=== Widgets ===

* added CellRendererClickablePixbuf from Tryton (http://www.tryton.org/),
  with minor updates to be GTK+3 compatible

127 128
=== User Interface ===

129 130 131 132 133 134 135 136
* majorly revised the Custom Prompt Builder (both UI and Code):
 - unified functions in python code where possible
 - removed "Place in (...)" buttons
 - only one "Empty", "Undo" and "Redo" button each for both TextViews
   (it is now auto-detected which one of both is the currently active one)
 - use monospaced font in the input fields
 - add scrollbars to the Custom Prompt Builder (prevents window from getting
   immensively huge when inserting large prompts like Equinox)
137 138
 - add "Reset" button: reset to last saved user configuration
 - add "Factory" button: reset to vendor or factory configuration
139 140 141 142
 - when inserting functions or variables into PROMPT_COMMAND or PS1 the output
   will be modified so that it conforms with where it's been added, example:
   - ${eusercolor} for PROMPT_COMMAND and ${usercolor} for ${PS1} or
   - $(systemkit usedram%) for PROMPT_COMMAND and \$(systemkit usedram%) for PS1

144 145 146 147
* restructure prompt color settings
 ++ before: two combined combo boxes (not optimal from usability view)
 ++ after : a separate combo box for each color setting

148 149 150
* re-arrange some settings in 'Advanced' category. Rename 'Extra' sub-section
  into 'BashStyle-NG', 'Misc' sub-section into 'Bash Builtin'.

151 152
* remove AboutDialog-Window and make it a custom tab page instead

153
* re-align widget groups for the better looks
154
* show what category the user is currently in, in the header
155
* added missing revert-to-default icons for PWD Length Spinbutton
Christopher Roy Bratusek's avatar

156
* show icon on the "Back", "Empty", "Undo" and "Redo" buttons again
157
* major restructuring and updating of widgets in all categories

160 161 162 163 164 165 166 167 168 169 170 171 172 173 174 175 176
=== General ===

* add trap_add function. It allows adding multiple commands to a trap one after
  another by grabbing the previous trapped functions and re-building the trap
  (by Richard Hansen https://stackoverflow.com/a/7287873)

* record executed command and it's exist status. This will be available using
  ${lastcommand} (full length),  ${lastcommandprintable} (truncated to max. 25
  characters or filled with spaces to reach 25 characters, for prompts) and
  ${lastexit} variables. This is not recorded for:
  - completion
  - trap
  - PROMPT_COMMAND

  for not overriding the useful info with useless, aswell as for:

  - echo ${lastcommand}
177
  - echo ${lastcommandprintable}
178 179
  - echo ${lastexit}

180 181
  so users are able to grab the values in all cases. Add all three to the
  Custom Prompt Builder.
182

183 184 185 186
* rename lscd_mkdir config into customcd_mkdir and make it apply for both lscd
  and treecd
* add treecd_opts config (similar to lscd_opts)
* improve treecd (make it internally work like lscd)
187
* make colorshell a trap rather than embedding it in PROMPT_COMMAND
188
* remove PRE_PROMPT_COMMAND
189

190 191 192 193
=== Styles ===

* Renamed "Clock Advanced" Prompt to "Equinox" (the name change is handled
  internally, the config updated automatically, no user interaction required)
194 195
* re-bind RETURN to C-l\C-j when Equinox is the active style. The Style is now
  properly re-drawn after command execution (no more overlapping "arms")
196
* include ${lastexit} and ${lastcommand} as follows in Equinox:
197 198 199
	( ✔: some command )─┤	-- for a successfully executed command
	( ✘: some command )─┤	-- for a non-successfully executed command
* simplify Equinox code a little bit
200
* don't draw arms in Equinox if the terminal height is less than 16 lines

207
* add History Sync: sync history between simultaneously running sessions.
Christopher Roy Bratusek's avatar
Christopher Roy Bratusek committed
208
 ++ commands from other sessions become available to 'history' immediately,
209 210
 ++ to bash after reloading prompt ([ENTER])

211 212 213 214 215 216 217
* add dotglob:		include hidden files (with leading dot) by default during
			pathname expansion
* add extglob:		enable extending globbing with regular expression like
			extensions (see: http://mywiki.wooledge.org/glob#extglob)
* add nocaseglob:	ignore case during globbing
* add nocasematch:	case insensitive matching for 'case' and '[[' commands

218 219 220 221 222 223 224 225 226 227 228 229
=== Keybindings ===

* add 'Revert' column: revert setting to last saved user value
* add 'Default' column: revert setting to vendor or factory default
* removed 'Reset Keybindings' button (no longer needed with clickable Pixbuf)
* add 'None' column: allow keybindings without modificator (only useful for
  keys like TAB for example to bind menu-complete to it)

* removed Advanced > Tab Rotation, added menu-complete to Keybindings instead.
 - if you want to re-enable this feature set menu-complete in Keybindings to TAB
   with no modificator checked

230 231 232 233 234 235 236
* new standard keybindings:
++ menu-complete-backward (default: Ctrl-Tab)
++ backward-kill-line (default: Alt-k)

240 241 242 243 244 245 246 247 248
=== Readline ===

* New Readline options:
 - colored-stats:	if visible-stats is true, color them using LS_COLORS
 - skip-completed-text:	when completing, don't duplicate text after cursor.
			example: if you have type: '$ sh' and then do completion
			'$ /bin/b[TAB]sh' it will end up '$ /bin/bash' when this
			setting is On, '$ /bin/bashsh' when this setting is Off

249 250 251 252 253 254 255 256 257 258 259

317 318 319

=== NOTES ===

320 321 322 323
* The first-run-wizard (bsng-wizard) has been removed, relevant options have been
  merged into the main application, be sure to run the UI (Style for colorshell,
  else Advanced and GIT) after upgrade to re-adjust your settings that got lost
  by this change (if any).
324

325 326 327
* This release removes the html-documentation. Instead every options will have a
  tooltip showing the name of the configuration variable (or -- if none) and the
  description of the setting [work in progress].
328

329
* Configure now looks for python3 by default, falls back to python2 or python.

Overview of changes in v8.4 "Mind The Gap"

586 587 588 589 590 591 592 593
=== NOTES ===

* BashStyle-NG uses ConfigObj for storing configuration. Since
  version 5.0.0 ConfigObj supports Python 3.2 and 3.3. If your
  distribution ships an older version of ConfigObj, use the
  --python=/path/to/python2 configure flag to ensure python2 is
  being used.

594 595 596 597
=== Bug fixes ===

* #148 (alias):
	fix aliases #8 and #9 set from UI weren't setup on Bash
Christopher Roy Bratusek's avatar
Christopher Roy Bratusek committed
598 599
* #149 (count_files):
	-f/+f and -d/+d params were exchanged
600 601
* #150 (debian):
	make bashstyle-ng exlicitely depend on python-configobj
602 603
* #151 (make):
	fix generating pot file for bs-ng-wizard
604 605 606 607
* #152 (configure):
	fix detection of python version if it's an release-candidate
* #153 (python3):
	full python3 support (ConfigObj only supports 3.2 and 3.3 officially)
608

609 610 611 612 613 614 615 616 617 618 619
=== New Features ===

* direxpand: Bash >= 4.3 features a new shopt: direxpand. Enabling this
             causes Bash to expand directory names in completion like
             Bash 4.1 did.
* globasciiranges: Bash >= 4.3 features a new shop: globasciirange.
                   Enabling this causes Bash to use character ordering
                   like in the C locale when globbing ranges.
* show-mode-in-prompt: New readline option to show the current editing
                       mode in the prompt

620 621 622 623
=== Misc. Changes ===

* minor UI improvement (tabs on the left, smaller icons on tabs,
  text below icons on tab)
624
* add "Report Bugs" button to the about dialog
625
* updated and completed german translation
626

627 628 629
* configure 4.2.3: add --bashrc option to pass a specific system
                   wide bashrc (required for bashstyle-ng init)

630 631
* bump supported python versions to 3.3 (only if you have ConfigObj 5)

=== configure v4.2.2 ===
* add --no-postinstall configure-flag (for package-maintainers)
  [no post-installation tasks will be performed, ensure your
   packaging scripts will do the thing instead]
* add --no-installdocs configure-flag (for package-maintainers)
  [no documentation will be automatically installed, ensure your
   packaging scripts will do the thing instead]

--- Important Note #1 ---

This release switched from GConf based configuration to ConfigObj.

Advantages:
	- *much* faster startup from terminal
	- usable from both python (ConfigObj) and Bash (ini-parser)
	  [read: all options could be changed from Bash now, too]
	- bs-ng-profiler and rc-generator no longer required

Disadvantages:
	- you have to fully re-setup BashStyle-NG (both GUI and Wizard)

This version of BS-NG can install wrapper for cp, mv, shred and rm, which
873
honour the NoCopy, NoMove, NoShred and NoDelete .dirinfo-flags (see below).

Those are only 90% syntax-compatible with the originals (say: `mv test{1,2}'
Christopher Roy Bratusek's avatar
Christopher Roy Bratusek committed
876
works, but `mv test{1,2} test{3,4}' does NOT -- only one {,} is supported),
Christopher Roy Bratusek's avatar

maybe there are more incompatibilities. This will be fixed with Revision 3.

900

902 903
                    if /bin/sh is not /bin/bash (...) workaround this by exporting
                    CONFIG_SHELL="/bin/bash" in /etc/profile.d/bashstyle.sh (...)
904 905 906 907
* #119 (nx-rc): when you started several shells at once ReadlineCFG, VimCFG and NanoCFG could
                have generated invalid configuration files (all instances of them adding the
		values), this is now prevented by starting BS-NG one by one
* #120 (clock-ad) (ayoli): fixed truncated the current directory
908 909
* #121 (nx-rc) (bs-ng-wizard): could have possibly hung up if bs-ng-wizard was loaded when no
			       config was not yet created
910
* #122 (bs-ng.py): don't wrongly require vte
911 912
* #123 (make): fixed installation outside of /usr as non-root user by not
               forcing the icons to be installed into /usr
913
* #124 (nx-rc): properly close the if-statement, which detects GDM
