./misc/dvtm, Dynamic virtual terminal manager

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 0.15, Package name: dvtm-0.15, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

dvtm brings the concept of tiling window management, popularized by X11-window
managers like dwm, to the console. As a console window manager, it tries to make
it easy to work with multiple console-based programs like vim, mutt, cmus, or
irssi. dvtm is intended to be used where X11 isn't available or over SSH. In
conjunction with dtach, it can be seen as a lightweight alternative to GNU

Log message:
Update misc/dvtm to 0.15.

pkgsrc changes:
 * Delete NO_CONFIGURE and convert SUBST_STAGE.* to pre-configure as
   suggested in The pkgsrc guide. (no functional changes intended)

 * More complicated default key bindings for potentially destructive
   actions to minimize the chance of accidental presses:

    MOD-x-x closes the focused window
    MOD-q-q quits dvtm

 * Simplified client creation code, elimination of useless intermediate
   shell. This should fix Mod-C (the creation of a new window with the
   same working directory as the currently focused window) for systems
   where procfs is available.
 * Copymode coloring: if enabled in config.def.h (which is currently only
   the case for less) the piped scrollback buffer will contain escape
   codes to preserve the coloring.

    $ DVTM_EDITOR=less dvtm

   Generate some colored output and press MOD-e (i.e. CTRL-g-e by
   default) less should now display the same content (that is with
   color) and provide search functionality etc.
 * Urgent flag indications (after a client received a bell) are redrawn
   as soon as possible.
 * Small bug fixes for terminal emulation and mouse actions.
   Slight cleanup of config.def.h and the dvtm-status script.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for misc category

Problems found locating distfiles:
	Package colorls: missing distfile ls.tar.gz
	Package molden: missing distfile molden-4.6/molden4.6.tar.gz
	Package softmaker-office-demo: missing distfile ofl06trial.tgz

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Update misc/dvtm to dvtm-0.14.

 * nmaster functionality available via MOD+{i,d} i.e. the possibility
   to change the number of windows displayed in the master area
 * "urgent flags" that is if an application issues a bell \a the urgent
   flag is set and the corresponding tag will blink
 * distinguish between return key and new line this fixes the behaviour
   of CTRL+j in certain applications
 * rudimentary support for the \e[?10{47,48,49}{h,l} xterm sequences
   to switch between alternate and normal screen buffer as used by
   >= abduco 0.3
 * better Unicode support in the statusbar
 * the current layout symbol is displayed in the tag bar
 * the position of the status/tag bar is runtime configurable via MOD+S
 * code cleanups and fixes from static analyzers
 * DragonFly BSD support

Log message:
Bump all packages that depend on curses.bui* or terminfo.bui* since they
might incur ncurses dependencies on some platforms, and ncurses just bumped
its shlib.
Some packages were bumped twice now, sorry for that.

Update 0.9 to 0.13
  From the web page: http://www.brain-dump.org/projects/dvtm/
dvtm-0.13 released (15.11.2014)
   Changes include:
 * rewritten copy mode as an external process

   Upon MOD+e dvtm pipes the whole screen buffer content to $EDITOR.
   Whatever the editor writes to stdout will be stored in an internal
   dvtm register for later pasting with MOD+p.

   This only works if your editor of choice is usable as a filter i.e:

     echo Hello World | $EDITOR - | cat

   An alternative editor to use can be set with the environment variable
   $DVTM_EDITOR. Instructions for the intended usage together with vis
   can be found at:


 * tagging concept working the same as in dwm. Current key bindings are
   as follows:

              View all windows with nth tag.

       Mod-0 View all windows with any tag.

              Toggles to the previously selected tags.

              Add/remove all windows with nth tag to/from the view.

              Apply nth tag to focused window.

              Add/remove nth tag to/from focused window.

   The default configuration sets up five different tags (1-5).

 * rudimentarily sanitize $SHELL such that SHELL=dvtm dvtm is no longer
   a fork bomb.
 * more flexible key binding configuration including the possibility
   to specify key bindings involving 3 subsequent symbols.
 * unified drawing of minimized windows always on the last screen line.
   Previously the arrangement of those minimized windows was done by the
   individual layouts.
 * use of pselect(2) instead of select(2) in order to fix a race condition.
 * cleanups and comments for the terminal emulation code (vt.[ch]).
   This is also in preparation for eventual use in vis.
   Support for italic attributes and terminfo entries ({r,s}itm).
   Recognize '\033];title\007' as title changing sequence.
 * build system (i.e config.mk) should now respect $TERMINFO and $PREFIX
   if set. By default _POSIX_C_SOURCE=200809L and _XOPEN_SOURCE=700 is
   used, if you get compile errors change them to match whatever your
   system needs to expose the required interfaces.
 * Solaris and AIX support (with some tweaks to config.mk)
All in all a lot of code was changed, comments, patches and a thorough
review is always welcome!

As a kind of social experiment I also pushed a mirror of the repository
to github:

dvtm-0.12 released (05.07.2014)
   Changes include:
 * fixes to the redraw logic
 * new copymode key bindings CTRL+u (page-up), CTRL+d (page-down), CTRL+c (quit)
 * a new layout included in the source tarball but not enabled by default:
   vstack where all windows have the full screen width
 * cleanups to the build system and manual page

The tagging branch[1] has also been rebased. Special thanks to Mark Edgar
for his patches.
dvtm-0.11 released (08.03.2014)
   Changes since the 0.10 release include:
 * keybindings can be defined without any modifier key as result
   config.def.h was reindented. Sorry for the resulting merge
 * scroll up and down is now also bound to Shift-Page{Up,Down}
 * the window border is no longer drawn if there exists only 1 window.
   This means when you start dvtm without any command you will just
   get a normal shell prompt without any decoration. This might be
   useful for people who use a terminal without builtin scrollback
   buffer support.
 * MOD+Tab switches to the previously focused window
 * Upon terminal resize the whole screen is completely redrawn. This
   fixes an issue with the optimized redraw logic introduced in the
   last release when attaching to an existing session with dtach or
 * the lock functionality (MOD-X) has been removed, use a session
   management tool like abduco to detach from your controlling
   terminal and logout properly using the existing system mechanism.

dvtm-0.10 released (28.12.2013)
  This is mostly a bugfix release with
 * improved redraw logic to reduce cursor flickering
 * better non blocking input handling
 * a couple of fixes to dvtm.info terminfo description (kbs, rs1)
 * various other fixes (fd leakage, misuse of strncpy, handling of I/O errors)
as there were changes to dvtm.info make sure to install the new version.
Furthermore I've rebased the tagging branch, which provides the same tagging
facilities that we know and love from dwm, on top of master:
