    6 ----
    7 o  replying via email to an article with
    8    From: =?us-ascii?q?<a@example.com>,?= <b@example.org>
    9    will result in
   10    To: <a@example.com>, <b@example.org>
   11    [20141230 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   13 o  get_respcode() doesn't handle the 401 response code. as we have to
   14    evaluate the response text as well we have to fix every
   15    nntp_command(..., NULL, 0) call.
   16    [20100429 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   18 o  col_response is a misnomer as the counter doesn't count responses
   19    anymore (except on the very first article). The man-page is outdated too.
   20    [20080826 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   22 o  unexpected multiline responses confuse tin, e.g.:
   23    | 240 Article posted =?ISO-8859-1?Q?=3C=3D=3Fiso=2D8859=2D1=3Fq=3F=3F=3D87r7k8na?=
   24    |   =?ISO-8859-1?Q?vt=2Efsf=40urs=2Did=2Etest=2Eka=2Enu=3E?=
   25    (the servers response should be a single line (INN 2.2))
   26    [20050207 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   28 o  better integrate saving of MIME/non-MIME articles when not using libuu.
   29    MIME sections are saved by the 's'ave operations, uuencoded sections
   30    are saved as part of the postprocess backend
   31    [mostly done]
   32    [Jason Faultless <jason@altarstone.com>]
   34 o  batch mode has several bugs
   35    - -Z and giving a cmd-line group the cmd-line group is not displayed in
   36      the statistics nor taken into account for the 'any unread news' status.
   37    - -vc could be more verbose (like -vcZ is)
   38    - -o currently is not a 'batch_mode' option
   39    - -u could be faster if not building threads etc. pp.
   40      (build_references(), filter_articles(), make_threads())
   41    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   43 o  add version number to other config-files (e.g. tin.defaults)
   44    and do the same checks as for TINRC_VERSION/tinrc. for the
   45    tinrc, filter and attributes file store the charset the file is written
   46    in (e.g. ISO-8859-x vs. unicode) and for the filter file the filter method
   47    used (wildmat or regexp (or TRE))
   48    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   50 o  overview file caching code is over-complex
   51    - cache the original overview info instead of rebuilding it from
   52      the processed (decoded etc.) data, no matter if it's broken (e.g.
   53      contains raw 8 bit data) as we have to deal with that anyway. if there
   54      are no original overviews, cache the original data from the postings
   55      headers (after unfolding and tab removal).
   56    - Add docs to explain how to create system-wide overviews
   58 o  iso2asc conversion is missing for 'internal' strings (e.g. 'M'enu)
   59    [20020319 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   61 o  comments in attributes get lost (we need to do something like we do for
   62    the filter file)
   63    [20080425 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   65 o  if falling back to HEAD/NEXT ([X]OVER not working) tinrc.getart_limit
   66    isn't honored
   67    [20090112 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   69 o  the keys GroupToggleSubjDisplay / GROUP_TOGGLE_SUBJECT_DISPLAY and
   70    ThreadToggleSubjDisplay / THREAD_TOGGLE_SUBJECT_DISPLAY are misnamed,
   71    as they toggle the display of the sender address, not the subject.
   72    [20130839 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   74 o  the key ToggleHelpDisplay / GLOBAL_TOGGLE_HELP_DISPLAY is misnamed
   75    (like txt_help_global_toggle_mini_help, but at least text now is
   76    updated) wrong as it toggles tinrc.beginner_level which also controls
   77    displaying the posting etiquette
   78    [20210106 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   80 o  there is a memleak in read_cmd_line_options(envargs()) if $TINRC is set
   82 Pager Problems
   83 --------------
   85 Posting Problems
   86 ----------------
   87 o  8bit chars in some headers are RFC-2047-encoded where this is not allowed
   88    according to usefor (Newsgrous, Distribution, ...) - do_rfc15211522_encode()
   89    simply encodes all headers no matter if any of them must not be encoded
   90    (see parse_rfc822_headers()).
   91    [20090112 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
   93 o  remove Message-IDs with 8bit chars in them when they occur in
   94    Message-ID or References header
   95    [done for References in replies/followups, Urs]
   97 o  keep RFC 6532 in mind as parts of it will sooner or later make it into
   98    NNTP (sic!).
   99    [20120220 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  101 o  repost ('x') ignores some ~/.tin/attributes
  102    [fixed for mailing_list, Urs]
  104 o  forged cancelling via Supersedes:/Also-Control:/Control:-header is possible
  105    if it is supplied by hand (inews_prog=--internal)
  107 o  when last articles in a newsgroup were cancelled, it shows that there are
  108    new articles in that group (except when using -n cmd-line flag)
  110 o  mailers other than sendmail (f.e. mutt) and use_mailreader_i=OFF may lead
  111    to 'duplicated'-headers and multiple signatures
  113 New features
  114 ------------
  115 o  add code for other TLS/SSL libraries (wolfSSL, mbed TLS, ...)
  116    (<mbedtls/version.h> MBEDTLS_VERSION_STRING_FULL
  119 o  add "COMPRESS DEFLATE" support
  120    <https://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc8054.txt>
  121    [20100122 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  123 o  add possibility to dump the current key mapping to a file
  125 o  make the group status flag (moderated, new, bogus, ...) configurable
  126    like the thread and article flag (select.c:build_gline(%f))
  127    [20210709 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  129 o  add configure check for cl_clear_secret() in libcanlock and CL_API_MAJOR,
  130    CL_API_MINOR in canlock.h and if suitable prefer over bundled
  131    libcanlock (--with-canlock).
  132    [20190212 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  134 o  update included libcanlock to >= 3.3.0
  135    [20211024 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  137 o  allow per server cache_overview_files setting via serverrc.
  138    [20180215 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  140 o  add something like default_cmd_line_opts (acting like $TINRC) to serverrc?
  141    precedence [low to high] = serverrc.def_cmd_line_opts, $TINRC, cmd-line?
  142    [20190205 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  144 o  if we extend serverrc it should also get some 'M'enu.
  145    [20190205 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  147 o  implement SAVE_APPEND_FILE_ALL ('A') and SAVE_OVERWRITE_ALL ('O') keys
  148    which just ask once if file(s) already exist (open_save_filename()).
  149    [20170811 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  151 o  add second pipe command when piping multiple articles to use one
  152    pipe per article (currently it is one pipe for all). ':' could be
  153    used as key (only in use at the pager where this feature doesn't make
  154    sense).
  155    [20160412 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  157 o  allow to cancel piping / saving multiple articles, ESC/'z' just stops the
  158    current one
  159    [20160409 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  161 o  add per scope getart_limit via attributes
  162    [20131114 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  164 o  add support for %A (Address), %C (Firstname), %N (Fullname) to
  165    group_format and thread_format
  166    (what about "conflicting" settings for show_author and %[ACIN]?)
  167    [20130925 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  169 o  add a key to "drop" pending data from the server (either by
  170    disconnect/reconnect (fast but reconnect may fail due to rate limit or ...)
  171    or via calling drain_buffer() (might be slow if there is much pending
  172    data)) so one doesn't have to quit and restart tin if the client/server
  173    communication gets desynced (i.e by reading an article which has a non
  174    dot-stuffed lone '.' in it or the like)
  175    [20130615 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  177 o  x_body currently doesn't allow cmd. execution via ! like x_headers
  178    [20110912 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  180 o  add nntp_default_server to tin.defaults to override compile time setting.
  181    if given strings starts with / or ~ the value is taken from the referenced
  182    file, if it starts with $ it is read from the referenced variable.
  183    [20101118 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  185 o  the old space_goto_next_article=ON && space_goto_next_unread=OFF is not
  186    possible with the new goto_next_unread rc-var, we need something like
  187    an additional goto_next_read rc-var
  188    [20101101 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  190 o  add DEFAULT_SIGDASHES_REGEX and related 'M'enu-entry for signature
  191    detection in cook.c
  192    [20080925 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  194 o  allow remapping of the 'z' abort-key (lynx style) in wait_for_input().
  196 o  add more user defined screen layout at different levels (e.g. posting
  197    history screen)
  198    (mostly done for selection, group and thread level)
  199    [20041025 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  201 o  allow a Message-ID on the cmd. line to jump to the given article
  202    [20170718 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  204 o  add more AUTHINFO SASL (RFC 4643, RFC 5802) support (DIGEST-MD5,
  205    EXTERNAL, ...) and a fallback if no libgsasl is found (e.g cyrus-sasl
  206    or a handrolled version for at least PLAIN)
  207    [20080316 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  209 o  make 'GNKSA'-parser RFC5322/USEFOR compliant (e.g.
  210    misc.c:gnksa_dequote_plainphrase()) and fix bugs
  212 o  add XZVER (and XZHDR) support (zlib compressed yyencoded overview data)
  213    <http://helpdesk.astraweb.com/index.php?_m=news&_a=viewnews&newsid=9>
  215 o  the TLD checking in the 'GNKSA'-parser needs some rework, keeping the
  216    list of valid TLDs up to date is more or less impossible with the ~1400
  217    pending new TLDs
  218    [20131024 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  220 o  add In-Reply-To threading for mailgroups
  221    [20030518 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  223 o  make auto'S'ave also work for inrange groups
  224    (unfortunately 'S' at select level is used for something else)
  225    [20030508 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  227 o  turn ask_for_metamail into $MM_NOASK support (see metamail(1))
  228    [20030314 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  230 o  fetch overview data in chunks (e.g. 100 arts/chunk) to allow
  231    faster read interruption.
  232    [20020326 Dirk Nimmich <nimmich@muenster.de>]
  234 o  add bold-italic, bold-underline, italic-underline, bold-italic-underline
  235    word highlightings.
  236    [20020721 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  238 o  allow bold, underline, italic, ... as color substitution for
  239    monochrome terminals (map green=underline, italic=yellow)
  240    (see also
  241    <nntp://news.tin.org/20020416202232.A4575@bloatware.reston01.va.comcast.net>)
  242    [20030218 Serge Matveev <sm@cl.spb.ru>]
  244 o  hierarchical 'M'enu, e.g. put all art_marked_*into a 'submenu',
  245    restructure/sort 'M'enu items, some display-options (render BiDi) are
  246    currently under expert options, some options in display options are
  247    navigation options (catchup thread, use mouse, ...)
  248    [20020322 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  250 o  add a postponed 'browser' (store postponed arts in MH or maildir
  251    format to make things easier?)
  252    [20020305 Dirk Nimmich <nimmich@muenster.de>]
  254 o  add postpone option for mail-actions;
  255    reusing p'o'stponed articles in mailing_list groups doesn't work
  256    (possible fix: store Newsgroups (and other info) via msg_add_header()
  257     (to overwrite any old values) in X-Tin-Postponed:-header and remove it
  258     before posting.)
  259    [20010623 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  261 o  should the postponed 'file' (and posted messages 'file') be in
  262    mailbox_format (even if that's a one file/message format, thus
  263    the 'file' actually needs to be a directory?).
  265 o  add maildir/maildir++ support (besides MBOX{O,RD} and MMDF},
  266    MH (not only reading but also writing), mailstore, BABYL, Kendra (MMDF
  267    like with 20*CTRL-A as sep.), MBX and MIX (indexed MBOX from UW-IMAP)
  268    and add man-pages for the various formats.
  269    (see <https://quimby.gnus.org/notes/BABYL> for BABYL,
  270     <http://www.qmail.org/man/man5/maildir.html> for maildir,
  271     <http://www.qmail.org/man/man5/mbox.html> for MBOXCL and MBOXCL2,
  272     <http://www.washington.edu/imap/listarch/2000/msg00363.html> for MBX,
  273     <http://www.washington.edu/imap/documentation/mixfmt.txt.html for MIX)
  274    [20020215 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  276 o  add $LOCKEXT support
  277    [20030611 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  279 o  add xxencode (<http://www.debath.co.uk/code/xxencode.c>),
  280    base224 (<http://b-news.sf.net/>), xBin <http://www.xbin.org/>,
  281    base91 (<http://base91.sourceforge.net/>) and yenc (hide/decode-)support
  282    (see <http://yydecode.sourceforge.net/> for readable code, ignore
  283    the crap on <http://www.yenc.org/>). also check
  284    <http://www.exit109.com/~jeremy/news/binaries/> which might replace yenc
  285    etc.pp. some day.
  286    [20020216 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  288 o  add "Face:" (incompatible "X-Face:"-replacement) support?
  289    [20040107 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  293    CA_WARNING_s (see RFC 5536 3.1.4. and 3.2.6.) and mark them
  294    for removal in the future.
  295    [define ALLOW_FWS_IN_NEWSGROUPLIST to turn the mentioned errors into
  296     warnings. 20011226 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  298 o  support "Suggested Minimal Digest Format"
  299    <ftp://rtfm.mit.edu/pub/usenet/news.answers/faqs/minimal-digest-format>
  301 o  add new threading method: thread by reference, but split threads on
  302    subject change
  303    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  305 o  rewrite thread-method selection that users can easily combine different
  306    threading methods (THREAD_SUBJ + THREAD_MULTI || THREAD_REFS +
  307    THREAD_MULTI || ...) - see also note in art.c
  308    [20011117 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  310 o  add counter to post-processing commands (processing file x of y)
  311    (Is post-processing really that slow? [Jason Faultless
  312    <jason@altarstone.com>] no but if you post-process more than a
  313    handful of files it would be useful [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>])
  315 o  add key to toggle article and thread sorting preferences on the fly
  316    (like 'u' for threading)
  318 o  check if servers high mark is lower than the one in users newsrc, if so
  319    issue a warning and allow the luser to reset the highmark in the newsrc
  320    to the servers 'l'ow or the servers 'h'igh mark or 'i'gnore it.
  322 o  check if the articles Subject/From in the pager matches (minus
  323    whitespaces) the one on the overview file (if available) - if not
  324    issue a warning that the servers overviews seem to be broken. trust
  325    the headers, not overviews. (see note in rfc2046.c)
  326    do the same with the article numbers in the (cached) overview
  327    data (we already do this, but currently this will lead to article "loss").
  328    if they are higher than the server's high-mark don't trust them (and
  329    discard the locally cached data).
  331 o  attributes (still) needs some work; See doc/config-anomalies.
  332    [20030303 Dirk Nimmich <nimmich@muenster.de>]
  334 o  add IPv6 support
  335    (add protocol independent wrappers which use IPv6 (functions)
  336     whenever possible).
  337    there are two small problems with the minimalistic IPv6 support which is
  338    currently in tin: when getaddrinfo() is used to get the name/ip of the
  339    newsserver it always uses DNS (gethostbyname()/gethostbyaddr() checked
  340    /etc/hosts first) and getaddrinfo() seems to have a (huge) delay in some
  341    cases. use getipnodebyname()/getipnodebyaddr() (if available) instead.
  342    check for gethostbyaddr_r()/gethostbyname_r() and use them instead
  343    of gethostbyaddr()/gethostbyname() if available.
  345 o  add cmd-line/tinrc-switch to fetch only headers of unread articles;
  346    in that case, make 'r' reading the rest of the articles
  347    [-G is a start]
  348    allow setting a per group limit via attributes
  350 o  check if server supports 'LIST MODERATORS' and/or 'LIST DISTRIB.PATS' and
  351    if it does parse the output so it can be shown to the user. (e.g. when
  352    posting to a moderated group, show the moderators mail-address, but still
  353    leave the mailing to the server; if the group has limited distribution
  354    inform the user, ...)
  356 o  if using "-n" command-line switch you can't subscribe to newsgroups not
  357    present in your newsrc - a simple check against the server
  358    (e.g. GROUP $newsgroup or if !NNTP try to stat the dir) would help.
  359    if the server understands "LIST ACTIVE grp" we could also get the group's
  360    attribute (moderated, etc.) and with "LIST NEWSGROUPS grp" it's
  361    description.
  363 o  item_by_item_etiquette_warnings [compile-time?]
  364    (e.g. enable x-posts without f'up warning, disable long-sig warning)
  366 o  posted_articles_file is not available in attributes
  367    [20130628 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  369 o  unify Fcc and posted_articles_file
  370    [20031012 Dirk Nimmich <nimmich@muenster.de>]
  372 o  MIME-pgp support according to RFC 2015, RFC 3156 - (should be easy now)
  373    and/or in the format that used by signcontrol/pgpverify (see also
  374    tinews.pl)
  375    As MIME-pgp verification needs the undecoded mime-part with its headers
  376    storing the raw-offset of each part in the article would be very helpful.
  378 o  pgpverify invocation with a single key instead of '|''a''pgpverify' or a
  379    built-in pgpverify solution.
  381 o  pgp-{6,7} support
  383 o  use runtime config for pgp instead of hardcoded values depending on
  384    compile time detection, i.e. have tinrc vars for pgp_decode, pgp_verify, ...
  385    like in mutt and/or
  387 o  add check for GPGME (<http://www.gnupg.org/related_software/gpgme/>) and if
  388    found use it for pgp actions.
  390 o  add feature Cc:
  392 o  add feature show_new_newsgroups_since
  394 o  add new key which tags articles based on a prompted regex, could be used
  396    and/or something like GROUP_SELECT_THREAD/THREAD_SELECT_ARTICLE which
  397    works on tagged arts (the later might be useful in conjunction with
  399    [20051110 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  401 o  Additions to the thread menu:
  402      ']'  (GLOBAL_QUICK_FILTER_KILL)
  404      'r'  (reply to) /* not 'R' cause it conflicts with mail_bugreport */
  405      ''   r should be toggle show all/show only unread
  406      'f'  (post a followup) (maybe also 'F', '^W', ...)
  407      'N'  (next unread article)
  408      'P'  (previous unread article)
  409      'V'  (View/pipe/save multimedia attachments)
  410      'X'  (mark all unread articles that have not been selected as read)
  411      ';'  (mark unread arts as hot if >= 1 art in thread is hot)

  450      'M'  OptionMenu
  452 o  Add to the URL Menu ('U'):
  453      'M'  OptionMenu
  455 o  integrate multi-part tagging with regular tagging, eg.
  456    "This article appears to have multi-parts, try and find them (y/n)?"
  458 o  Add a command-line switch (-V) that prints out all values of cpp-symbols
  459    etc. [partly done, but should be cleaned up]
  461 o  Reorganize tinrc into related sections for easier editing
  462    e.g., Display, Posting etc.
  464 o  A system-wide tinrc configuration file (to hold some defaults).
  465    [done: /etc/tin/tinrc] A key code to reset to the system defaults.
  466    Maybe a second file which could be used to force settings (eg.
  467    inews & mailer) (tin.defaults [--with-defaults-dir] is a start)
  469 o  when From: only contains "First-name Last-name" tin strips the
  470    Last-name in group/thread/page-level
  471    [20020319 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  473 o  Bounce duplicate Message-ID's when the headers are read. This will
  474    make the threading code happier too.
  475    [Jason Faultless <jason@altarstone.com>]
  477 o  Merge the selection code with the range code. Having two similar methods
  478    of picking articles with similar goals is wasteful.
  479    [Jason Faultless <jason@altarstone.com>]
  481 o  add check for liblzma/libbzip2/zlib (>=1.1.4)/[mini]lzo, lzlib, liblz4,
  482    liblrzip, libzstd, ...
  483    (<http://tukaani.org/xz/>, <http://sources.redhat.com/bzip2/>,

  487     <https://github.com/facebook/zstd>) and add an option to
  488    write/read *zipped local overviews.
  489    the libs might also be used for post-processing articles.
  491 o  rewrite/cleanup all the debugging code, the output in /tmp is messy; the
  492    on screen output either slows down things dramatically or is unreadable;
  493    split DEBUG_MISC?
  494    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  496 o  replace gettimeofday() with clock_gettime() if available in parsdate.y
  497    as POSIX.1-2008 marks gettimeofday() as obsolete.
  498    [20110910 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  500 o  Add 'M'enu option to define chars for utf8_graphics.
  502 o  allow user defined mouse button bindings (like keymap).
  504 Posting enhancements
  505 --------------------
  506 o  sort Followup-To:/Newsgroups: after stripping doubled newsgroups and
  507    before checking if they are identical, if so, strip Followup-To: and
  508    use unsorted but stripped Newsgroups:-line only
  509    ulBuildArgv() would be good for this
  511 o  if Newsgroups:-line has groups in it which are not present in the users
  512    active file ask the user if he wants to strip these groups from the
  513    newsgroups-line (N/y)
  514    do the same for Followup-To:
  516 o  check if any valid groups are in the Followup-To:-line and if not inform
  517    the user and use Newsgroups: instead (at the start of post_response())
  519 o  bring up a warning on a long Newsgroups: (>=5) line and
  520    force the user to confirm every single group he wants to post (or
  521    redirect followups to) in. (N/y)
  523 o  bring up a warning when trying to f'up into a binary group
  524    (use a regexp to detect binary groups e.g.:
  525     (?:\.binae?r|de\.alt\.dateien\.))
  526    (Warning, sending a followup to a binary group is undesired, post it
  527     anyway? N/y)
  528    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  530 o  posting to a binary group should warn if no followup is set to another
  531    group/poster (you have not set a target for a possible discussion on your
  532    post, would you like to go on anyway? N/y)
  533    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  535 o  when posting to a group containing uppercase-letters: bring up a
  536    warning: "Newsgroup-names should be all lowercase, correct it? (Y/n)"
  538 o  Enhance -n to take newsgroup name as argument and use group_get_art_info()
  539    to allow posting to groups other than those in newsrc.
  541 o  add config option for (external) viewer to show postings stored in
  542    keep_posted_articles_file
  543    [20021003 Michael Gerhards <HM-Gerhards@uni.de>]
  545 Filtering enhancements
  546 ----------------------
  547 o  add Xref + Path filter to the filter-menu
  549 o  add used filter-type to filter file or filter rule or use different
  550    filter files for wildmat/regexp
  552 o  add command: mark all articles older/newer than <date> (or <days>) as
  553    read (useful when subscribing to a new group with high-traffic...)
  555 o  fix kill/hot mechanism so that it is possible to match articles on
  556    arbitrary headers
  557    [done for Path, Dennis]
  559 o  don't strip "Re: " out of the subject before applying the filter on it
  561 o  allow any given amount of days in default_filter_days not only
  562    {1, 2, 4} * 28 days
  564 o  allow expiring filter entries n-days after the last time they matched
  566 o  add command to generate filter rules for all currently tagged articles
  568 o  allow editing of the strings presented in the kill-Menu for
  569    "Kill Subject", "Kill From", "Kill Msg-Id" without having to edit
  570    the full filter-file
  571    [20120201 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  573 o  allow ranges in gnksa-filters "gnksa=200-399" or "gnksa=101,103,201"
  574    [20200709 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  576 Pager enhancements
  577 ------------------
  578 o  add 'autoview' (spawn external viewer) 'autohide' (don't even show info
  579    about that part) for different content-types
  581 o  add Content-Language (RFC 3282 or even RFC 8255) analysis
  583 o  suppress hide_uue=2 checking unless first line in an article or following
  584    a blank line
  586 o  add missing mailcap (RFC 1524) features: %n, %F, copiousoutput, print,
  587    if no %s appears in the view-command (or edit fields) the body part needs
  588    to be passed to the command as standard input, ...
  589    [20111205 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  591 o  add BiDi handling to page header
  593 Internal Changes
  594 ----------------
  595 o  use tin_gettime() in *StopWatch() instead of ftime(3)
  596    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  598 o  merge refs.c:valid_msgid() and post.c:damaged_id()
  599    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  601 o  in ENABLE_NLS case replace PLURAL() macro with proper use of
  602    ngettext(3) (if found by configure) to support languages with
  603    more than one plural form.
  604    [20150113 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  606 o  rename disable_gnksa_domain_check to enable_gnksa_domain_check and
  607    invert logic now the default changed
  608    [20131119 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  610 o  curses.c:input_pending() and curses.c:get_arrow_key() have
  611    #ifdef HAVE_SELECT and a code path for the case when we don't have
  612    select(2), but read.c:wait_for_input() has no code path for the
  613    !HAVE_SELECT case. we should add a !HAVE_SELECT case there (or at
  614    least have adjusted messages in txt_reading_article and txt_group)
  615    [20110506 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  617 o  ditch MAX_MSG_HEADERS (post.c)
  618    [20110212 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  620 o  always display (also) the servers error response string to the user,
  621    currently tin sometimes gives generic messages (e.g. when authentication
  622    fails), but the servers response may include additional info (like
  623    bandwidth exceeded)
  624    [20101230 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  626 o  rewrite mini-help, remove the long strings and generate them dynamically
  627    one help text for each key makes translations more easy and unique and can
  628    use the available space on the screen much better if not running on 80
  629    columns.
  630    [20100326 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  632 o  rewrite auth.c
  633    - turn t_bool authinfo_user, authinfo_sasl, authinfo_state into
  634      enum authinfo { NONE = 0, USER = 1, SASL = 2 }
  636 o  fix aclocal.m4:CF_FUNC_SYSTEM and/or misc.c:invoke_cmd() that
  637    --enable-broken-system-fix/IGNORE_SYSTEM_STATUS isn't needed anymore.
  638    [20090520 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  640 o  move several (server related) files into the per-server dir e.g.:
  642    should be
  644    [20050807 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  646 o  remove untranslatable constructs like txt_prefix_*, txt_marked_as_*, ...
  647    [20050413 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  649 o  keys which could be renamed/merged:
  650    - 'l' GroupListThd, PageListThd
  651    - 'm' GroupMail, PageMail, PostMail, ThreadMail
  652    - 'D' GroupCancel, PageCancel, ThreadCancel
  653    - 'N' GroupNextUnreadArt, PageNextUnreadArt, (SelectNextUnreadGrp)
  654    - 'S' GroupAutoSave, PageAutoSave, ThreadAutoSave
  655    - 'P' GroupPrevUnreadArt, PagePrevUnreadArt
  656    - '@' GroupReverseSel, ThreadReverseSel
  657    - '~' GroupUndoSel, ThreadUndoSel
  658    [20050408 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  660 o  read_overview() calls eat_re() which strips the "Re: " out of the
  661    subject. the modified subject is used for batch_mode opperatios (-N/-M)
  662    which might not be what ppl. expect and eat_re() is the only function
  663    which needs the 'regex' overhead in batch_mode... (see also the note
  664    about "Re: "-stripping at "Filtering enhancements").
  665    [20050225 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  667 o  use new_nntp_command() instead of nntp_command() in the rest of the
  668    code (where useful; if we do a global change, rename it to
  669    nntp_command()). see check_extensions() for a sample usage.
  670    [20050211 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  672 o  replace various occurrence of "US-ASCII" by DEFAULT(_MIME)_CHARSET
  673    and define that to "US-ASCII" (to make 'updates' easier).
  674    [20040929 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  676 o  get rid of CURR_GROUP, use t_group instead
  677    create a global t_group *CURR_GROUP instead of the current macro
  678    reduce dependencies on my_group[] & selmenu outside of select.c
  679    [20030501 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  681 o  clean up $AUTOSUBSCRIBE code (the NNTP code path is a mess)
  682    [20030412 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  684 o  make configure look for strrstr() in libpub & publib.h
  685    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  687 o  reorder several structs to avoid padding e.g. t_capabilities (but that's
  688    just used once, no big win here). (see gcc -Wpadded and/or pahole(1))
  689    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  691 o  what type is base[]? (long, see memory.c:init_alloc()~102)
  692    There is a lot of confusion internally over how it is used
  693    compare setup_hard_base() with find_base() etc..
  694    [Jason Faultless <jason@altarstone.com>]
  696 o  check where PRODUCT should be used instead of tin_progname and/or "tin"
  697    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  699 o  check where NEWSRC_FILE should be used in lang.c instead of "newsrc"
  701 o  check where iKeyAbort should be used instead of ESC (etc.pp.)
  702    (AFAICS all fixed except prompt.c and read.c/'z')
  703    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  705 o  close potential security holes:
  706    - remove fixed length buffers (find_nov_file(), print_from(),
  707      quote_space_to_dash(), escape_shell_meta(), backup_article(),
  708      build_messageid(), get_secret(), get_host_name(), get_domain_name(),
  709      get_fqdn(), get_user_name(), get_full_name(), build_sender(), ...)
  710    - change all system()/popen() calls to fork() and exec() calls
  711    - check where we should use snprintf() instead of sprintf()
  712    - check where we should use strncat() instead of strcat()
  713    - check where we should use strncpy() instead of strcpy()
  714    - check possible races with access()/link()/rename()/stat()/
  715                                unlink()/chdir()/fopen()/fstat()/open()/
  716                                opendir()/t_open()/tmpfile()
  717    - check getenv() results before using it
  718    - check where my_strncpy() or STRCPY() should be used
  719    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  721 o  split tin.h/proto.h for better dependencies in Makefile

  724    off_t, ...
  725    [Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]

  759    [20210206 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  761 Unicode
  762 -------
  763 o  make mm_network_charset an "option_list" to avoid junk input or
  764    undesired (UTF-1, UTF-7, UTF-16*, UTF-32*, UCS-2, UCS-4, ...) encodings.
  765    add configure check for the hard coded charsets (try iconv_open(x,

  846 o  replace "\\" by "\e" in man pages (portable?)
  848 o  integrate doc/auth.txt into tin.1 man page
  850 o  document ${HOST:-"$HOSTNAME"} fallback if gethostname(2) and uname(2)
  851    do not return a hostname
  853 o  the limited pgp support (inline pgp as of RFC 4880, just signature
  854    verification or key import but no decryption ...) is nearly undocumented
  855    in the man page
  857 Not yet classified
  858 ------------------
  859 o  should -X (no overwrite) and/or -G/tinrc.getart_limit with
  860    cache_overview_files=ON warn that tin will not cache the overviews?
  862 o  verbatim regions can't be nested, should they?
  864 o  allow per group cancel_lock_algo setting via attributes?
  865    [20170810 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  867 o  allow per group cache_overview_files setting via attributes?
  868    [20180215 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  870 o  DIRSEP (set in tin.h (to '/')) is used in places in the code
  871    and hardcoded '/' elsewhere (i.e. joinpath(), ...); the DIRSEP
  872    looks like a leftover from when removing the non UNIX code
  873    [20210112 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  875 o  exit HEAD/NEXT loop on 5xx responses to HEAD? (see
  876    art.c:open_art_header())
  877    [20161011 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  879 o  follow $LC_COLLATE (e.g. add strxfrm() to subj_comp_*/from_comp_*)?
  880    [20160421 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  882 o  IDNA decode news_headers_to_display?
  883    [20160227 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  885 o  sometimes we convert the supplied server name to lowercaes (for cached
  886    overviews) and sometimes we don't (nrctbl.c code and -g arg). Thus
  887    -g Foo.bAr.eXample may result in file not found
  888    for entries like '*       ~/.tin/.newsrcs/${NNTPSERVER-localhost}'
  889    even there is a ~/.tin/.newsrcs/foo.bar.example file.
  890    Should we always lowercase $NNTPSERVER / -g? (but still allow
  891    upper/camelcase for -f or a fixed filename in newsrctable).
  892    [20160225 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  894 o  add "host:port" notation support for -g as shortcut for -p port -g host
  895    [20160222 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  897 o  allow "begin-base64"/"====\n" as start/end marker for UUE-blocks besides
  898    the traditional "begin"/"end\n"?
  899    [20151204 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  901 o  cache_overview_files also affects $TIN_INDEX_MAILDIR and $TIN_INDEX_SAVEDIR
  902    overviews, is this desired?
  903    [20151112 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  905 o  articles without a Message-ID are skipped as the code currently depends
  906    on Message-IDs, but they might show up in mailgroups - assign a pseudo
  907    Message-ID to them?
  908    [20151111 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  910 o  create missing dir(s) in path to newsrc, right now get_newsrcname()
  911    usually comes up with
  912    "No permissions to go into /home/$USER/.tin/${NNTPSERVER}"
  913    if one uses something like
  914    *  ~/.tin/${NNTPSERVER-localhost}/.newsrc
  915    in newsrctable
  916    [20150121 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  918 o  make --with-defaults-dir= default to $sysconfdir/tin
  919    (=/usr/local/etc/tin)?
  920    [20110809 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  922 o  Supersedes (and repost) don't reuse the Reply-To: header of the original
  923    article
  924    [20110808 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  926 o  what about !us-ascii chars in username/password when using
  927    AUTHINFO USER/PASS? Currently they are sent as is, RFC 3977 says
  928    "The character set for all NNTP commands is UTF-8", RFC 4643 doesn't
  929    mention any special handling.
  930    [20101104 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  932 o  charset conversion fails when converting articles from multibyte charsets
  933    with 0 bytes (UCS2, UCS4, UTF-16[[LB]E], UTF-32[[LB]E], ...), currently
  934    we just skip over such parts instead of handling them properly
  935    [20100905 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  937 o  the documentation suggests that novrootdir/$TIN_NOVROOTDIR defaults to
  938    spooldir/$TIN_SPOOLDIR if unset, which is not exactly what happens as
  939    this default is set at configure/compile time, not at runtime, so
  940    setting $TIN_SPOOLDIR to something different than the default will not
  941    automatically adjust $TIN_NOVROOTDIR at runtime. we should either
  942    fix the documentation or the behaviour.
  943    [20100103 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  945 o  un/subscribe_pattern() is very slow on servers with a huge active file
  946    [20091223 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  948 o  replace wildmat.c with uwildmat.c
  949    <http://inn.eyrie.org/trac/browser/trunk/lib/uwildmat.c>? It knows poison
  950    patterns and can handle UTF-8 strings
  951    [20091223 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  954    $XDG_CACHE_HOME (eg. for cached NEWSGROUPS_FILE)
  955    <http://standards.freedesktop.org/basedir-spec/basedir-spec-latest.html>
  956    [20081010 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  958 o  add //IGNORE iconv-option like //TRANSLIT?
  959    [20080824 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  961 o  what about REDIRECT_OUTPUT? shouldn't we better add this to DEFAULT_PRINTER
  962    so ppl. can override it via the 'M'enu? and shouldn't DEFAULT_PRINTER be
  963    detected via configure?
  964    [20080625 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  966 o  create debug output in
  968    instead of in $TMPDIR (as it may contain username and password,
  969    access restrictions in $TMPDIR are a bad idea as other users
  970    need to be able to overwrite the file (multi user system)).
  971    [20080211 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  973 o  -M/-N report is mailed to userid, should we use tinrc.mail_address
  974    instead?
  976 o  tin uses the first sig-isolator as recent one, USEFOR says it should
  977    use the last. There is no consensus that tin should follow this USEFOR
  978    requirement.
  980 o  'K' is still a bit inconsistent:
  981    - in the group and thread menu it marks current item read & jumps to the
  982      next unread item.
  983    - in the article pager (page.c) it marks the rest of the current thread
  984      read and jumps to the next unread article. should we let 'K' behave
  985      like <TAB> in the pager?
  987 o  rename prompt_followupto (to prompt_extra_headres) and make it an option
  988    list like {"Followup-To"; "Summary"; "Keywords";
  989    "Followup-To & Summary"; "Followup-To & Keywords";
  990    "Summary & Keywords"; "Followup-To, Summary & Keywords"} or make it a
  991    user-definable text field like news_headers_to_display? or leave this
  992    entirely to the user - he could tweak attributes accordingly.
  993    [20060503 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
  995 o  in several places only the latest keybinding is shown in prompts
  996     (e.g. "q=quit, e=edit, i=ispell, g=pgp, M=menu, w=post, o=postpone: w"
  997      with "PostPost	p	y	w" in keymaps)
  998    should we try to show them all?
  999    [20050718 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1001 o  remove hard coded keys (eg. 'q') from txt_filter_global_rules,
 1002    txt_reading_article, txt_select_config_file_option, txt_group and
 1003    replace with actual keybinding (after making it rebindable).
 1004    [20200526 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1006 o  add PGP_INCLUDE_KEY to pgp_mail_keys?
 1007    [20050426 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1009 o  there is no command to undo a range ('#') selection
 1011 o  'article loss' reported in
 1012    <nntp://news.tin.org/20020915165856.GA1541@martinkl.dialup.fu-berlin.de>
 1014 o  should 'tin -z foo.bar' only start up if there is any unread news in
 1015    foo.bar?
 1016    [20040325 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1018 o  trn and perls Net::NNTP::Auth use ~/.nntpauth (format is
 1019    "^server\s+user\s+password"), shall we also try ~/.nntpauth if we can't
 1020    find a matching entry in ~/.newsauth? and should we look for
 1021    ${TIN_HOMEDIR:-"$HOME"}/.tin/.newsauth if ~/.newsauth is not found?
 1022    [20040128 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1024 o  allow a different port in newsauth- and/or newsrctable-file
 1025    (server:port [...])? if we do, what's the precedence?
 1026    [high] -p, newsauth, newsrctable, $NNTPORT, 119 [low]?
 1027    [20140504 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1029 o  what todo if in a CTE: x-uue the CD: filename differs from the one given
 1030    in the begin line? IMHO we should use the one from the begin line for
 1031    saving and in the overview in the pager.
 1032    [urs@tin.org]
 1034 o  inverse_okay's Menu description isn't accurate (inverse is also used for
 1035    URL highlighting). mono_mark* do allow "Reverse video" even if
 1036    inverse_okay=FALSE.
 1038 o  --disable-inverse-video seems to be ignored - do we still need it?
 1040 o  move tinrc.defaults for certain comannds to a pre-filled .inputhistory?
 1041    (if so, also move last_search there)
 1042    [Jason Faultless]
 1044 o  what about -a cmd-line flag? is this really needed? IMHO this can be
 1045    dropped, '&' can be used for runtime color toggling.
 1046    [20021106 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1048 o  commas in real-name might cause problems in mail-replies
 1049    'From: Last, First <user@example.com>' (which was illegal in RFC 1036 but
 1050    is no longer with RFC 5536) leads to 'To: Last, First<user@example.com>'
 1051    which is 'last@localhost,user@example.com' should we try to fix things and
 1052    quote the realname part?
 1053    [20021007 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1055 o  setting TIN_HOMEDIR to a non-existent dir gives a "Filesystem full"
 1056    error-message (but doesn't force quit) instead of creating the dir. bug?
 1057    feature? if the later we should give a more exact error-message.
 1058    [20011112 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1060 o  update gettext stuff to > gettext-0.12.1 (or drop it?)
 1062 o  shows up cross-postings multiple times even if read once before getting
 1063    a resync/reread active/newsrc-file
 1065 o  think about group numbering in "only unread" display mode
 1066    (using different numbers in show all/show only unread leads to some
 1067     problems, f.e. group moving)
 1069 o  doesn't handle symlinks for .oldnewsrc
 1070    (see <20021003021508.GA28021@akk10.akk.uni-karlsruhe.de> for details, urs.
 1071     if we're going to 'fix' this we must be careful to avoid symlink
 1072     attacks (<http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CAN-1999-1091>)
 1073    [20020627 Jeff Sheinberg <jeffsh@erols.com>]
 1075 o  missing newsrc file and connecting to a server without groups leads to the
 1076    question "Try and save newsrc file again? (Y/n)" but a newsrc file doesn't
 1077    get written. Same may occur on quitting if newsrc file had been removed
 1078    while tin was running. Useful? Should write_newsrc() try to create a newsrc
 1079    file if it is missing instead of just leaving?
 1080    [20061102 Dirk Nimmich <nimmich@muenster.de>]
 1082 o  configure checks for fdopen(3) and defines HAVE_FDOPEN if found, but we
 1083    don't have any code guarded with that macro nor any fallback code if not
 1084    found.
 1086 o  re add innlib support? (the old one was dropped as the lib has retired
 1087    all (which were not that many) features we used and our code didn't
 1088    use the innlibs code where ever it was possible (and useful).
 1089    [20080211 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1091 o  add check for libarchive <http://www.libarchive.org/>
 1092    and use for post-processing?
 1093    [20111225 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1095 o  add check for liblockfile and/or liblock and use if found?
 1097 o  add check for heapsort(3) in libbsd? <http://libbsd.freedesktop.org/wiki/>
 1098    [20130305 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
 1100 o  add check for libtre and offer TRE as matching method for "wildcard"?

 1102    [20130706 Urs Janssen <urs@tin.org>]
