  • v31000.0.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This release supports server version 3.10.0.

    ๐Ÿ“ฆ Package changes:

    • Upgraded mattermost-api to 31000.0.0.
    • Upgraded mattermost-api-qc to 31000.0.0.

    ๐Ÿ†• New features and keybindings:

    • Matterhorn now supports Flagged Posts. To use this feature:
      • Press M-8 or use the /flags command to show a list of your flagged posts. Within that view, 'f' will unflag a selected message.
      • In message selection mode in channels (C-s), 'f' will flag/unflag the selected message.
      • Flagged posts appear with a flag marker "[!]" next to the author's username.
    • Syntax highlighting of fenced code blocks is now supported in 256-color terminals. Code blocks must provide the langauge hint using the same syntax as supported by the web client.
    • Spell checking of user input is now supported using Aspell. To use this feature:
      • Install the Aspell binary and dictionaries on your system.
      • Set enableAspell = true in your Matterhorn configuration.
      • Optionally, set aspellDictionary to the name of the Aspell dictionary you want to use (this is only necessary if you want to override your LANG setting, which is typically sufficient)
      • Once user input is entered into the input area, a short delay after typing stops, a spell check will highlight any misspelled words.
    • Home and End now move the cursor as usual in editor while in normal mode, and also navigate the message list while scrolling.
    • Matterhorn now displays the mention count in the channel sidebar to mimic the web client behavior and highlights channels with at least one mention in magenta in the sidebar.

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes and improvements:

    • Configuration file values can now use quoted string syntax (fixes #269)
    • The channel switch mode prompt now mentions anchors.
    • The URL opening command is now run asynchronously.
    • Input history files are now saved with an appropriate file mode (fixes #218)
    • Fixed a bug that caused users created after a session began not to appear in the sidebar.
    • Help topics (valid arguments to /help) are now displayed in the main help UI (fixes #225)
    • Message deletion now also deletes replies to the deleted message (fixes #257)
    • On channel deletion, leave before deleting to avoid a server error.
    • URLs in the URL list are now displayed in the same order in which they appear in messages (fixes #250)
    • User identification now appears in DM channel headers.
    • Numbered lists now render starting at first specified number (fixes #243)
    • The login screen now displays validation errors for hostname and port inputs when appropriate (fixes #242)
    • Channel select inputs that have an exact match no longer require /$ anchors.
  • v30802.1.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This release supports server version 3.8.2. This release is our first ๐Ÿš€ official public release.

    ๐Ÿ“ฆ Package changes:

    • Removed stale array and data-default dependencies
    • Increased lower bound on base dependency to 4.8 to relect our GHC testing.

    ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improvements:

    • Subprocess error logs are now only created on demand. Previously we created them on startup before any subprocess errors had occurred.
    • We now provide a QuickCheck test for some infrastructure.

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes:

    • Fixed a bug whereby some resize operations would cause a program crash by triggering an unsafe mutable vector operation in Vty.
    • New user creation is now handled successfully and no longer requires a client restart to function reliably. Previously bad behavior included not coloring new users' names and not showing new users' names at all on their messages.
    • Message selection mode is no longer blocked by errors and other non-post content.
    • Subprocesses that fail to run are now consistently mentioned in the subprocess error log.
  • v30802.0.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This release supports server version 3.8.2.

    ๐Ÿ“ฆ Package changes:

    • ๐Ÿ˜Œ Relax constraint on containers to allow 0.5.7 or greater.
    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgraded mattermost-api to 30802.0.0.

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes:

    • โšก๏ธ The help interface now updates properly when showing either the main help window or the scripts help window.
    • Attachments are now saved asynchronously.
    • ๐Ÿ’ป Attachments are now opened without using the browser, thus removing our dependency on a valid browser session with the server (fixes #128)
    • ๐Ÿ›  Editing state is now saved before switching history entries (fixes #210)
    • ๐Ÿ“‡ Messages with unknown authors trigger a user metadata fetch (fixes #205)

    ๐Ÿ†• New keybindings:

    • C-o now opens the URL list while scrolling through channel messages.
    • C-c now cancels channel selection in C-g mode

    ๐Ÿ’ป UI changes:

    • Channel scroll mode keybindings were added to the help page.
    • We no longer perform string highlighting on the contents of Markdown code spans in messages.
    • โช On startup, only the scrollback for Town Square is fetched to improve performance. Scrollback for other channels is fetched on demand.
    • ๐ŸŒ We now use the channel sigil "~" rather than "#" to match the web client behavior, and highlight ~-prefixed channel names (fixes #204).
  • v30701.0.0 Changes

    ๐Ÿš€ This release supports server version 3.7.1.

    ๐Ÿ†• New features:

    • Matterhorn now has basic support for 3.7's new "group channel" feature. If other users add you to a group channel, it will appear in the sidebar with the member usernames listed (e.g. "#bob, sue, ..."). Creation of group channels will be supported in a future release.
    • When the urlOpenCommand program produces output on standard output or standard error, this output is now logged and a message is posted in the current channel with the path to the log file. This feature prevents the URL open command from poisoning the terminal state with unexpected output.
    • Added a /members command to show current channel membership.
    • Channel header changes from other users will now cause the channel topic string to update.
    • Added a /delete-channel command to delete the current channel.
    • Markdown rendering now puts empty lines between adjacent block elements of the same variety to improve readability.

    ๐Ÿ› Bug fixes:

    • Message selection now only supports reply/edit/delete on normal posts (fixes #174)
    • C-n/p now only change channels when a non-DM channel is selected (fixes #82)
    • We now handle new user events (fixed #111)
    • On channel change we now always reset the channel list to scroll to the top (fixes #138)
    • When a draft message is left in the editor when changing channels, a new sigil ("ยป") appears for the previous channel instead of the usual "#" to indicate this.
    • The help interface now resizes properly all the time.

    ๐ŸŽ Performance improvements:

    • On startup, all channel contents are fetched asynchronously. Town Square fetches are prioritized. These changes drastically improve startup time, even on fast connections.

    ๐Ÿ“š Documentation changes:

    • The README now includes a feature list, a brief feature overview for new users, and a section on how to contribute.

    ๐Ÿ“ฆ Package changes:

    • Upgraded mattermost-api to 30701.0.0.
    • Binary releases now include the copyright and licensing information for all dependencies.

    Internal changes:

    • Added preemption support for asynchronous work queue processing. doAsync(With) now both take an AsyncPriority.
  • v30600.2.4 Changes

    ๐Ÿ†• New editing keybindings:

    • C-w, M-Backspace now delete the word to the left of the cursor.
    • M-d deletes the word to the right of the cursor.
    • C-k now kills text from the cursor to the end of the line and copies to an internal buffer; C-y pastes from said buffer.
    • C-b, C-f move back and forward by one word, respectively.

      • Many editing keybindings are now present in their own Help page section.

    • Updated repository URL in error message about reporting problems (thanks @tommd)
  • v30600.2.2 Changes

    • ๐Ÿ‘Œ Improved formatting of message attachments so that their filenames are shown. Previously only their hash identifiers were displayed. This change also entails asynchronous fetching of attachment metadata.
    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgraded to mattermost-api 30600.2.1.
  • v30600.2.1 Changes

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed a bug that caused message selection mode to trigger a Vty crash when a message being rendered was larger than half of the area available for the message list.
  • v30600.2.0 Changes

    • โž• Added a new message selection mode. This mode provides access to four new features: replies, edits, deletion, and verbatim text yanking. To enter this mode, use the default binding of C-s (and cancel with Esc). The resulting cursor can be used to select messages in the current channel and perform the following actions on them:

      • y: for messages with any verbatim text, yank the verbatim text to the first verbatim block in the message to the system clipboard (works on Linux and OSX)
      • r: reply to the selected message. To cancel a reply, press C-c or Esc.
      • e: for messages written by the current user, edit the selected message. To cancel an edit, press C-c or Esc.
      • d: for messages written by the current user, delete the selected message (with a confirmation).
      • o: for messages containing URLs, open all URLs in the selected message.
      • j/k/up/down/pgup/pgdown: change the selected message cursor position.
    • โž• Added a C-r binding to begin a reply to the most recently posted message in the current channel.

    • M-e now toggles multiline editing mode rather than just enabling it. Previously, Esc toggled it off.

    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgraded to mattermost-api 30600.2.0.

  • v30600.1.0 Changes

    • โฌ†๏ธ Upgraded to mattermost-api 30600.1.0. This fixed /me and /shrug server-side command execution failures.
