==================================================================================

02 May 2007 - 12 March 2008
[KVIrc Development Team]
- A lot of changes documented in the svn log. See http://svn.kvirc.de/kvirc/ for the timeline.

02 May 2007
[Alexey]
- New KVS functions: $serialize and $unserialize to deal with JSON-serialized strings

16 Apr 2007
[Noldor] (with the input from Pragma and Iakko)
- Iakko's notifier is back. New in this version:
1) QT4 compatible (on win and macos it is uses fast setWindowOpacity effect instead internal notifier blend())
2) Added Option to disable fadein/out effect useful on slow machine (need test)
3) Fixed strange crash on QT4 and some minor bug in show/hide event. (it is a trick... need to debug)
This a w.i.p. and need some test on linux.

12 Apr 2007
[TheXception]
- Added $system.call to call functions of dll/so files via kvs.

10 Apr 2007
[Alexey]
- Configurable avatar scaling on load
- Human-redable file sized on dcc transfers

12 Mar 2007
[Alexey]
- Added support for remote dns on socks5 proxy
- Added option to configure identd output mode

06 Mar 2007
[Pragma]
- Added svg and generated png icons for kvs,kvc,kvt and kva files.
Added the KDE mimetypes too.
- Some fixes for Qt4 support

26 Feb 2007
[Alexey]
- Added Export/Import feature to channel list module

25 Feb 2007
[Alexey]
- Repainted reuser list
- Added search field for mask editors

24 Feb 2007
[Noldor]
- New QT4 win compiling projects: still unusable... kvilib and kvirc compile but only in release;
you need to compile qt libraries by yourself then try to compile kvilib and kvirc (use COMPILE_USE_QT4 in kvi_wincfg.h).
Some module compile without problem... others need to be ported.

20 Feb 2007
[Alexey]
- Completely reworked ignore system
- Implemented reguser match caching
- Implemented custom color for registered user caching
[Pragma]
- Yet more Qt4 port.
- We now require Qt >= 4.2.2 for Qt4 support to work. Older 4.x versions
have bugs that can't be worked around and tend to crash kvirc
in various circumstances (including displaying tooltips).
Qt 4.2 also re-adds the possibility to add QWidget objects to popup menus.
- Yet more modules ported.
- A fix for the KVS expression operator precedence.
- A couple of general fixes that I can't remember but have been reported on
the list.
- I'm thinking about qmake support (as suggested by Matteo Catanese some time ago)
... will require some work ... what do you think about it ?

18 Feb 2007
[Alexey]
- Fixed dns resolver under win32
- Fixed minimized channels open
- Added bot detection icon (who will write docs?)
- Fixed winamp plugin problem under win32 (removed msvcr80.dll dependency)

08 Feb 2007
[Pragma]
- More Qt 4.x port.
Solved the most disturbing problems: it looks a lot better now.
- Font metric cache values can no longer be computed directly from a
widget's font. We must use the painter idea of the font instead.
This complicates caching a bit.
- Some of the QPainter functions seem to behave in a bit different way
- QFrame::drawContents() is gone... we need to reimplement paintEvent()
- The setAutoFillBackground(false) setting seems to be propagated to children
in some way (?) (as opposed to backgroundMode(NoBackground) in Qt3)
- QToolButton::drawButton() is gone, need to directly drawPixmaps instead...
- ...
Ported also the first couple of modules.

Qt 4 causes a lot of problems in porting but I'm starting to feel
like the new library is very cool :)

05 Feb 2007
[Pragma]
- The KVIrc executable now compiles and starts with Qt4. With Qt3 everythin
should work just like it did before.

No modules are ported yet so a lot of functionality is not available...
... but it CAN connect to a server :)
It tends to crash once in a while, has nasty problems with
graphics and size of certain widgets: will need some hours of debugging.

When testing the Qt4 port make sure you (re)move your old binary
modules from /usr/local/share/kvirc/3.2/. KVIrc will attempt to load
some modules from there and since they're linked to Qt3 the runtime
(loader) is likely to go nuts with two Qt versions in memory.
You have been warned... :)

30 Jan 2007
[Alexey]
- Introduced option "using identd only on connect"

29 Jan 2007
[Alexey]
- Introduced search in log files

25 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- Yet more Qt 4.x port
- Added the torrent interface module by Alexander Stillich

21 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- More Qt 4.x port
- More multiple identities work
- Added the first considerations about the Qt 4.x port to hackers.guide.txt

20 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- Another quick fix (for config values not saved correctly)
- Started the implementation of multiple identities.

19 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- Added the fixes for a couple of bugs introduced with the yesterday commit.
Thnx to Alexander Stillich for the detailed report :)

18 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- More Qt 4.x port. kvilib now compiles cleanly with both Qt 4.x and Qt 3.x.
Don't know if it really works since kvirc compilation still bails out. We'll see :)

15 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- Fixed the smart encoders a bit more
- Theme management: rewritten the theme save dialog as a wizard, added screenshot management.
- Really first step to Qt 4.x support: added ./configure switches to handle qt4 and
fiddled the makefile variables to contain the right include and library paths.
Still have no idea if everything works correctly since compilation bails out
very early in kvilib.
You're likely to have problems with moc since the configure script tends
to find the Qt 3.x moc instead of the correct one. Use the --with-qt4-moc option
to force the right moc compiler path.
In Qt 4.x mode the COMPILE_USE_QT4 preprocessor variable is set: use it for conditionals...
an #ifdef COMPILE_USE_QT4 is more or less equivalent to #if QT_VERSION >= 0x040000.
We will need to "abstract" several collection classes to make everything
work with both Qt 3.x and Qt 4.x. The goal is (or better would be) to hide everything in
kvilib in order to have almost no conditional compilation in the kvirc core and in the modules.
- Added a discussion about the versioning scheme in the hackers.guide.txt. Give
it a read and make/add your comments :)

12 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- Added a set of smart encoders that send in UTF-8 instead of the child encoding
- Fixed a nasty bug in KviQString::vsprintf() that caused KVIrc to crash in response
to certain messages from server
- Added corrections and null checks in some places to make KVIrc resist to
the ircfuzz.c attack.
- Committed the spanish translation by Roberto Ciria

08 Jan 2007
[Pragma]
- More work on the themeing engine. Nearly finished.
The theme packages created since Dec 28 aren't compatible anymore.
(nobody was able to load them yet anyway :D), sorry.
- Added support for the audacious media player, thnx to Alexander Stillich :)
- Added #kvirc channel links in the help menu. Please add your own localized #kvirc channel.

06 Jan 2007
[Alexey]
- Added gender info sharing tricks

28 Dec 2006
[Pragma]
- Added handling of unknown RPL_WHOIS* numeric replies by implementing a nice
"guessing" algorithm suggested by Elephantman
- Added a file with KVIrc file extension definitions. We should use the defs instead
of hardcoding extensions like .kvt, .kvs or .kvp.
- Added a fast generic packaging engine. A KVIrc package is a kind of zip archive
with an uncompressed metadata header. It can be used to distribute both themes and addons.
- First works on the theme exporting engine. Saving and packaging are now different operations.
One first saves his theme to disk, eventually edits it manually (maybe by adding a nice
splash screen or fixing some icons) and finally packages it by invoking a nice
wizard based procedure. Still need to write the installation dialog.
- Moved the whole theme management engine to a new module. It exports the
management dialogs and some utility commands. There is no reason to load
all this stuff at startup with the options dialog now.

27 Dec 2006
[Noldor]
- Alias editor module:
added the possibility to save a selection of aliases in separated files (every file will have the alias name);
fixed search function;
- Script editor module:
fixed replace command(in "replace all aliases" too);
now syntax highlighter recognize command "function" and "internal";
- Objects module:
added objects.classes, objects.variables, objects.classAllHandlers;
fixed crash in listviewitem class;
fixed little bug in multilinnedit class (function $setWordWrap);


19 Dec 2006
[Pragma]
- help.open: open only one help window unless -n is used

17 Dec 2006
[Pragma]
- Committed the new german translation file by Mihai "Ionic" Moldovan
- Switched the source control system to SVN: happy coding :)

15 Dec 2006
[Pragma]
- Yet more work on the options dialog
- Added an option for the "network name in taskbar": it's cool, but we want to choose :)

12 Dec 2006
[Alexey]
- Added option to create minimized channels
- Fixed nick selecting in userlist via ircview
- Fixed mouse hover link effect

13 Nov 2006
[Pragma]
- Added $object.instances(): useful when implementing singletons.
- Fixed a small image dialog issue

9 Nov 2006
[Pragma]
- Added support for chunked HTTP transfer encoding as required by HTTP/1.1
- A fix for object toolbar position not saved properly
- A fix for the addon management dialog not repainted correctly
- A fix for loading of files by the means of KviFileUtils::loadFile()...
/parse is one of them and it expects an utf8 encoded file.
(read: all *.kvs files must be utf8 encoded, there is no other decent
portable way to preserve the national characters...)

8 Nov 2006
[Pragma]
- A fix for KviStr handling incorrectly multibyte strings (fixes some localization issues)
- A simple hack-in for a protocol filter.. maybe msn ?

6 Nov 2006
[Pragma]
- Various minor fixes around

- Cleaned up the -ansi -pedantic compilation. It looks that
only one real warning remains and it is related to the "deprecated"
flags of KApplication constructor which will be removed
in KDE 4.0. We must live with it for a while.
All the other warnings are due to the system headers.
- Caught a couple of potential segmentation faults in the reguser
module.
- Committed the catalan translation by Marc Serra

- More tricks on KviHeapObject
- Added the fixes for the _horrible_ VC++ compiler bug that implicitly
creates helper functions (vftable entries) residing in code sections where
operator new is called on a class with a virtual destructor. This is
simply destructive when it happens in a module that can be unloaded
before the object allocated with new is destroyed: at delete time
the code flow obviously jumps into no man's land.

"blinking onFocusOut/showing" are working. The Notifier is still on Beta version.
- Some kvi_sp_literal.cpp and kvi_sp_ctcp.cpp (under kvirccvs/kvirc/src/kvirc/sparser) changes
needed for notifier to work. A core recompilation is suggested even if

for example.

- Fixed a possible bug related to acknowledges in the DCC send code
- Other small fixes all around as usual.

7 Jan 2005:
[Pragma]
- Again more than 20 days of changes to report.
- The action based toolbars are almost working and have replaced
completely the old scriptable toolbars.
- The toolbar customisation dialog is ready
- Actioneditor is almost ready too, needs just minor adjustments
- Added $chan.userJoinTime() and $chan.userLastActionTime()
- Added several new $mask() types: now it is possible to get different
host masks (only *.domain.ext or *.anything.anythingelse.domain.ext).
Another mask set tries to handle correctly the hidden hostnames (+x)
on some servers (this does not work 100% tough...)
- Added the initial stuff for the language recognition module. Still
don't know if it will end up in the official release: needs interfacing with
the core... but the standalone engine is starting to work.
- Added several "smart" encodings that will try to decode as UTF8 first
and then apply the local encoding rules.
- Added a couple of new emoticon images (Thnx Penny!, Thnx Sidhe! :)
- Created the "scripts" cvs module and added a first script example
(a simple ezbounce irc proxy interface)
- Fixed runtime localization of the action and toolbar names: they
should work fine now.
- Fixed some bugs in the objects module (still needs a lot of work)
signaled by Noldor.
- Bumped up libtool and ltmain.sh to 1.5.10 (hoping that it will stop
relinking the modules when installing... this is extremely annoying)
- Suggest installing the default script if no toolbars or popups are available
- Fixed http avatars not being correctly loaded after the transfer has finised.
- Iakko is working hard on the new (cool!) notifier interface :)
- Various other fixes all around

15 Dec 2004:
[Pragma]
- Hacked the avatar cache to support masked ip addresses
(added some new parameter options to the $mask function by the way)
- Added the possibility of setting a temporary background for any IRC view.
This is still an experiment.

12 Dec 2004:
[Pragma]
- Added minimal support for /DCC ALLOW
- Fixed config files loading that truncated lines longer than 32K

8 Dec 2004:
[Pragma]
Yet another huge set of commits.
The major changes are:
- New "action" based toolbar and popup menu system.
Now the user can just drag & drop actions to customize toolbars :)
- The "big cleanup" has started:
- "Scripttoolbar" is gone: the functionality is completely superseeded by
the action based toolbars now. I already know that some people will want to kill
me for this but from now on the actions are the only method to create toolbars.
This is a good idea since the old method was a bit ugly (for example because
it needed overriding events to enable/disable the actions).
Moreover, another piece of the old non-unicode parser has been wiped out: this is Good(TM).
- Module extension toolbars are gone: replaced by the action stuff now (see above).
- Several structural changes to the default script that reflect the changes in the core.
It IS a good idea to reparse it (execute default script) once now.

4 Nov 2004:
[Pragma]
- Fixed various minor bugs introduced with the last huge commit.
- Merged the Mirco Macrelli's patch that adds the chanowner flag
support.

1 Nov 2004:
[Pragma]
I've missed to update this file for a while: my fault :/
The major changes until now are:
- New statusbar showing the server information.
This is intended to replace the irc context applet which
often has problems with space.
- 5 moveable statusbar applets
- Per network settings: nick,user,OnLogin,OnConnect,NickServ
authentication etc. as per-network settings.
- Both the servers and the networks can have a preferred
encoding now.
- More UNICODE support all around: the encodings are honored
almost anywhere with the exception of the scripting engine.
The scripting engine uses a hack that makes the encodings
survive through trivial scripts too. This will become yet
better when the new KVS core will be ready.
- Support for unicode nicks and channel names.
In fact almost anything that the server sends out may be unicode
data encoded with some 16->8bit scheme.
- A new rewritten lag meter that will avoid to ping the server
if possible (when other lag-check probes are spontaneously
being sent). The improved algorithm computes the lag better
and does not "hang up" when the server doesn't reply at all.
- The default quit and part messages can contain scripting identifiers
that are evaluated at quit or part time.
- The windows problem with keyboard input has been resolved
- Several enchancements to the actual scripting engine including
but not limited to echoprivmsg, query, notice, notifier.* ,
perl.*, server, ...
- Added OnDisconnectRequest event
- Added support for /CODEPAGE
- Avoided unnecessary repaints when in SDI mode: this made
KVIrc a bit faster when switching windows and lowered
the overall cpu usage.
- The "unread" text in a window is now clearly marked by a horizontal
line in the text view. If the text line is out of the view
then a triangle in the upper corner of the view signals it.
- KviWStr stuff definitively removed :)))
- Several other minor bugtrack issues fixed.


6 Aug 2004:
[Juanjo]
- Make some pointer = 0 after delete assignations when:
Pointer is a member pointer or a global pointer.
The delete is not in a destructor.
It makes sense.

1 Aug 2004:
[Juanjo]
- Added an autopackage dir with two (very initial) apsepc files to build a
.autopackage autoinstaller.
If you have not
checked autopackage (http://autopackage.org) DO IT NOW :) is the real
solution for Linux third party software installation across distributions
(somewhat like autoconf at the binary installation level, but without
damn M4 :)

20 Jul 2004:
[Pragma]
- Now you can use perl from KVS and KVS from perl :)
See /help perl.begin

13 Jul 2004:
[Pragma]
- Perl support has been widely requested. Added the initial modules
for that purpose. Needs more work tough.
- More work on the notifier: now it's fully working.
Added also the options to disable it in several ways (even completely).
- Fixed various bugs all around

11 Jul 2004:
[Pragma]
- Added /AHOST command
- More work on the notifier, now it flashes, pops up only when really
needed and can be temporairly disabled.
- Hardwired the event manager of the new KVS engine and officially
killed the old uparser based event manager. We're getting closer and
closer...

08 Jul 2004:
[Pragma]
- Added the notifier module: really nice!
Thnx to Penny for the images :)

06 Jul 2004:
[Pragma]
- Added a Always/Yes/No message box that asks the user for confirmation
when attempting to close a connected console.
- Added the Always/Yes/No option to the "Quit-Kvirc-On-Close-Last-Console"
operation.
- Fixed the input history handling bug as reported by Soliton
- Added several fixes for UNICODE misbehaviours reported by Dusan
- Fixed the configuration files parsing: now the entries
and the keys have whitespace encoded separately and the UTF8
encoding/decoding is done in the proper places.
- Added the code to make the translation of the tips possible.
The translations MUST be UTF8 encoded and use the
libkvitip_.kvc name.
- Finally fixed the copy&paste behaviour:
In the input the selection and the middle click
use QClipboard::Selection if supported by the operating system.
All the other methods use QClipboard::Clipboard.
The IRCView now copies to both QClipboard::Clipboard and
QClipboard::Selection (if supported)
- Again huge structural reorganizing in the networking stack
now I start to like it :)
- Committed several translation updates by Dusan
- The reconnect timer can now be stopped before it triggers
and on disconnect it uses the correct server entry.
(see Trisk's ChangeLog entry for 12 Mar 2004).

the logs be UTF-8, use the local encoding or use the source window charset ?)
- Committed more work on kvirc_cs.po by Dusan Hokuv

20 Jun 2004:
[Pragma]
- More reorganizing of the networking stack

- Unicode fixes related to IrcView tooltips
- Added $msgtype function and fixed the related echo documentation

without icons to be exported as simple popups (thnx again Klaus).
- Added an option to redirect WHOIS replies to the active window (on by default)
- Added the /echoprivmsg command
- Added the "delete file" function to the file transfers window

17 Apr 2004: 3.0.0 "Awakening" released.

16 Apr 2004:
[Pragma]
- Fixed a bug with creation of KviWindow derived classes: the constructor
of the base class was calling virtual functions from subclasses (it is curious
that this was effectively failing only on Windows and not on Linux).
- Reworked a bit the str module to avoid compiler parameter passing problems
- Fixed a bug with $str.replacenocase
- Fixed a bug that prevented the color option selector buttons from
displaying the proper color
- Miscelaneous fixes for the release

15 Apr 2004:
[Trisk]
- Miscellaneous minor stuff (set avatars to 0 width/height to disable).
- More reasonable defaults (seriously, the coloured nicks hurt people's
eyes =\ ). The fact that unrecognised commands result in parse errors
confuses new users (and annoys the heck out of me, too). Turned off
message icons too. Rationale is that it will disgust former
epic/BX/irssi/xchat users.
- And, I don't think most new users will use avatars regularly, so turning
the nicklist grid off by default, since it makes the nicklist more
cluttered.
* Forgot to add nick completion suffix. Oh well, the 3.0 series is just
beginning...
- Almost forgot to clean up really bad spelling in tip of the day. ><

13 Apr 2004:

- Added the default low-resolution (Minimalist) and high-resolution
(fancy) themes

- Fixed a SEGV related to shared files

[Trisk]
- Fixed null KviWStr problem.

18 Mar 2004:
[Trisk]

mode editor resizing the thing... not a good solution, but whatever).
- Lots of options dialog changes.
- Classic taskbar now limits number of rows (when horizontal).
- KviChannel API change: banMask(), etc. removed in favour of setMask().

[Trisk]
Added $date function for formatted time strings.

18 Feb 2004:
[Trisk]

* Closes ID 200402112009267112
* Somebody needs to update the bugtracker...

14-17 Feb 2004:

the whole internal editor since it was not unicode and simply
too huge for the feature it provided.
- Modularized and cleaned up the localisation of the editor module
- More work on KVS engine, module interface nearly estabilished

- Added the IrcContextToolbar to the toolbars menu, now it can be hidden
should the TaskBar be there too ?

15 Jan 2004:
[Trisk]

- Made logfiles lowercase (helps sorting, if any issues contact me).
- Made channel and query windows's default logfile contain network name
instead of console #... makes more sense.

- Reverted the kvi_activitymeter.png icon: the bars should eventually grow
from left to right (in the image) instead of top to bottom.
- Re-added $window to kvi_kvs_corefunctions_sz.cpp : it's the new parser
version and it will replace the old parser's version in the near future.
If you want to test the new parser capabilities then run the commands
by preceding them with a dash:
/- echo "This is the new parser's version of echo"
/- echo $window this is the new parser's version of echo \$window
...
- Added four ways of painting the user list view grid. It is user selectable
now.
Please tell me which is the best one (to choose the default)

04 Jan 2004:
[Trisk]

[Trisk]
- More new toolbar icons, currently using Bluecurve/Crystal mix.
- Recent channel, server, and nickname list removes duplicates even if case
differs.

27 Dec 2003:
[Trisk]
- Possible fix for crash if m_pConnectionInfo->szNickName is not set when
server disconnects the client (before login).
- Sets AsyncServerCommand on disconnect only if nonexistant; /SERVER works
now (sorry about that, Pragma).

- Removed border from channel state and mode icons in user list view and
lined up icons with text when avatar is used.

[Pragma]
- Added avatar caching

console now it doesn't break the servers dialog.
After the commit I've discovered that it collided with the Trisk's solution:
merged the two solutions in something yet better.
- Obscure internals: reworked KviIrcMask interface a bit...
still needs QString porting
- Written a ChangeLog entry after months of "hidden changes" :D

Christmas Eve (Western Hemisphere) 2003:
[Trisk]
- Modified window tooltips a bit...
- Unset channel mode for dead channels

[Trisk]
- Output correct message when RPL_CHANNELMODEIS is used for user modes.
- URL highlighting matches only if followed by char greater than 46.

from block attributes). Shift-select strips codes from the selection.
- Consoles remember last nick (correctly now).
- PART, TOPIC, and MODE messages will use current channel if no argument.
KICK will send proper command if no reason specified.
- Non-query notices and privmsgs go to active window if it is a common

* Put timer in KviTimerManager for lack of a better place, somebody check
that this is correct, please...
- Changed tree window list to show server name for consoles of console caption
(too long to view). Set bold font for consoles.
- Fixed channel name showing up twice on part when no message is specified
- Made external messages (whois info, server notices, etc.) go to console by
default, added option ExternalMessagesToActiveWindow to override this.
- Also fixed opnotice (NOTICE @#chan) and made non-query private notices and
privmsg go to common channel.
- Replaced CPPFLAGS in all Makefile.am with AM_CPPFLAGS.
