What's New in GNU Hyperbole

   *                                   V9.0.1

   ** ACE WINDOW PACKAGE INTEGRATION - fast window and buffer switching

   *** After installing the ace-window package and loading Hyperbole, execute
   (hkey-ace-window-setup "\M-o") to enable the following capabilities:

   *** Fast Window Links: The hkey-window-link command quickly creates links
   to other windows:

   {M-o w } - creates an explicit button linked to point in 
   {C-u M-o w } - creates an unnamed implicit button linked to point
   {M-1 M-o w } - creates a named implicit button linked to point

   See "(hyperbole)Create Link Button".

   ** ACTION AND ASSIST (SMART) KEYS  (See "(hyperbole)Smart Keys").

   *** Angle Bracket and Braces Thing Selection:  In text and fundamental modes,
   an Action Key press on an angle bracket or a curly brace selects the
   region between a matching pair.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key Thing

   *** Drag Button Referents to Specific Windows: Just as you previously could
   drag Dired or Buffer Menu items to display in a specific window, you
   can now do the same with Hyperbole Buttons.  Action or Assist Key drag
   from a Hyperbole button and release in another window where you want
   the button's referent (or the result of its action) displayed.  If you
   release the Smart Key outside of an Emacs window, the referent is
   displayed in a new frame.  See "(hyperbole)Displaying Items".

   Visual pulsing of the source line and the destination buffer highlights
   the transfer taking place (hmouse-pulse-flag controls this).

   Dragging a button to a modeline splits the window of the modeline and
   displays the referent in the leftmost or uppermost of the split windows.

   *** Drag to Create Implicit Link Buttons: An Assist Mouse Key drag across
   windows (when not starting from a draggable item) creates an implicit
   link button with an action type determined by the referent at the point
   of button release.  This parallels the same Action Mouse Key drag which
   creates explicit link buttons.  See "(hyperbole)creating implicit

   Previously this drag would swap buffers in windows.  Now you must drag
   from open space in a modeline of the depress window to the buffer text
   in the release window to swap buffers in windows.

   Alternatively, with two windows in a frame, you can create an implicit
   link button from point to the point of the other buffer with {C-h h i l}.

   *** Hyperbole Symbol Tags: Hyperbole now includes a pre-built TAGS file so
   that an Action Key press on any Hyperbole symbol jumps to its
   definition without the need for any additional support.  This also
   works on Hyperbole type names (which have a hidden prefix) in a help
   buffer where an Action Key press displays the type definition.

   *** Lisp Load, Autoload and Require Expressions: Action Key press on any
   named target in such expressions displays the associated library.

   *** Lisp Action Button Help: Action Buttons that utilize regular Lisp
   functions (rather than Hyperbole Action Types) can now have :help
   functions run with a press of the Assist Key on such buttons.  See
   "(hyperbole)Action Buttons".

   *** Smart Dired: Action Key subdirectory selection at point now works on
   any dired header line, not just the first one.  Use {i} to insert
   multiple subdirectories in Dired mode.  Smart Key end-of-line behavior
   is no longer specified in Dired mode but handled globally for
   consistency across modes.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Dired Mode".

   ** ACTION TYPES  (See "(hyperbole)Action Types").

   *** display-boolean, display-value, display-variable: Made all of these
   interactive, so can be used as button actypes.  See "(hyperbole)
   actypes display-boolean".

   *** Long Action Buttons: The length limit on action buttons has been removed
   to allow for long, multi-line sexpressions.


   *** Hyperbole Concepts: New writeup in Koutline format for those who
   want a quick read about how Hyperbole concepts all interrelate.
   View it with {C-h h d c}.

   *** Action Types: Add newer types and updated existing doc summaries
   in the Hyperbole manual.  See "(hyperbole)Action Types".

   *** Doc Viewing: Updated to display many files from the Doc> menu in Org
   mode, so can cycle through expanding and collapsing entries with TAB
   when point is at the beginning of the buffer, allowing you to view
   just the sections of interest.  View minor mode is also enabled so
   you can scroll forward and backward with SPC and DEL.

   This includes DEMO, FAST-DEMO, HY-ABOUT, HY-NEWS and the Hyperbole
   Files MANIFEST.

   *** Emacs 2023 Talk Videos:

   - Hyperbole Amps Up Emacs: Org slide file is included in
   "HY-TALK/HYPERAMP.org" with the video at

   - Koutline for Stream of Thought Journaling: The video is at

   - What I learned by writing test cases for GNU Hyperbole: The video
   is at "https://emacsconf.org/2023/talks/test/".

   *** Emacs 2022 Talk Videos:

   - Hyperbole and Org Mode: Org slide file is included in
   "HY-TALK/HYPERORG.org" with the video at

   - Linking Personal Info with Implicit Buttons: The video is at

   - Build a Zettelkasten with HyRolo: The video is at

   *** FAST-DEMO: Add  ERT multiple test run

   *** New Menu Key Doc: Documented these Hyperbole minibuffer menu keys:

   - {Q} always quits from the menu without selecting anything

   - {X} both quits from the menu and disables Hyperbole minor
   mode; {C-h h} re-enables it.  See "(hyperbole)menu,
   entry/exit commands".

   *** Updated 150-page Reference Manual: Includes multiple indexes for easy
   cross-referencing, Info viewer version and PDF for printing. View it:

   - with the Emacs Info reader: {C-h h d i}.
   - locally with a web browser: 
   - in pdf form:                "man/hyperbole.pdf".

   Some of the updates include:

   **** HyRolo Searching: Update this section with doc on auto-expansion and
   how to hide entries again.

   **** Ibut Menu: Document in the manual, notably the new Ibut/Create menu
   item.  See "(hyperbole)menu, Ibut/Create".  For the Ibut/Link menu
   item, see "(hyperbole)menu, Ibut/Link".

   **** Implicit Button Types: Add doc for 'hib-python-traceback'
   and 'hyrolo-stuck-msg'.  See "(hyperbole)Implicit Button Types".

   **** Link Menu Items: With two windows on screen, link from source window
   point to referent window point.  Do a similar thing when more windows
   are on screen via an Action Mouse Key drag between windows.  See
   "(hyperbole)Smart Mouse Drags between Windows".

   **** Manual Glossary: Added Ace Window, Consult, Org Mode, and Org Roam
   entries.  See "(hyperbole)Glossary".

   **** Smart Key - Org Mode: Expanded with doc for more extensive behavior.
   See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Org Mode".

   *** README.md: Unify this as the only readme file and remove "README".

   ** EXPLICIT BUTTONS  (See "(hyperbole)Explicit Buttons").

   *** Ebut/Link Menu Item {C-h h e l}: Inserts a named ebutton that links to
   point in another window.  See "(hyperbole)menu item, Ebut/Link".

   ** GLOBAL BUTTONS  (See "(hyperbole)Global Buttons").

   *** Gbut/Link Menu Item: A single name creates a new global link button
   to point.  See "(hyperbole)menu item, Gbut/Link".

   *** Auto Save: Automatically save the global button file after any edit.

   ** HYCONTROL  (See "(hyperbole)HyControl").

   *** I/J/K/M Key Bindings: In Window Control mode, move directionally
   (based on QUERTY keyboard layout) among windows in the selected frame.
   In Frame Control mode, move directionally among active frames.  These
   keys utilize and prompt to install the windmove and framemove packages
   if not installed.  See "(hyperbole)I/J/K/M".

   ** HYPERBOLE SYSTEM  (See "(hyperbole)").

   *** Any Colorized Display: Face display and colorization of Hyperbole
   buttons now works on any display capable of displaying colors.  See
   "(hyperbole)Button Colors".

   *** Create Buttons in Current Buffer: Stop prompting for a source buffer
   when creating a Hyperbole button.  Always use the current buffer and
   point.  See "(hyperbole)Creation".

   *** DuckDuckGo Web Search: {C-h h f w k} runs a DuckDuckGo web search.

   *** Hyperbole Keys Defer to Current Modes: Hyperbole bindings of {C-c RET},
   {C-c .}, {C-c @}, and {C-c /} defer to any major mode, like org-mode,
   outline-mode or kotl-mode that binds them to other commands.  This also
   works for outline-minor-mode.

   *** Improved Button Help: {C-h A} now says whether a button is explicit or
   implicit.  For implicit buttons, it displays the doc from both its
   implicit button type and its associated action type.

   {C-h A} now also works on Emacs push-buttons and text property
   buttons, displaying their attributes and associated action.  See
   "(hyperbole)Smart Key help".

   *** Flymake Lint Warning Display: The new "hsys-flymake" library provides
   commands to display the flymake warning at point as well as the full list
   of warnings for the current buffer.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Flymake
   Mode" for details.

   *** Makefile (eln): Use echo target for showing build info as part of the
   eln build.
   (echo): Show Emacs location and version in build environment
   (lint): Use "package-lint" to lint Hyperbole source code. 

   *** mhtml-mode Markup Selection: Hyperbole's matching markup pair selection,
   copying and movement now works with Emacs' builtin mhtml-mode.  See
   "(hyperbole)HTML tag pair".

   *** Native Compilation: Hyperbole now may be natively compiled (.eln files).
   It works around an Emacs bug where async native comp of a package being
   installed does not load "hyperbole-autoloads.el".  When building
   Hyperbole without a package manager, 'make eln' now builds it natively.

   *** Natively Compiled Functions as Action Types: Now may be used as
   Hyperbole button action types.  See "(hyperbole)Action Types".

   *** Warnings Removed: Almost all byte-compiler and native compiler warnings
   have been eliminated when building the Hyperbole package.  None of the
   remaining warnings should affect use of Hyperbole.  Most open Hyperbole
   issues have also been resolved.

   *** XEmacs: Removed old XEmacs-compatibility code; everyone should use GNU
   Emacs nowadays.

   ** HYROLO  (See "(hyperbole)HyRolo").

   *** Koutline and Markdown File Support: The `hyrolo-file-list' can now
   contain Koutline or Markdown files and will search their outline entries
   just like it does for Org and Emacs outline files.  The `markdown-mode'  
   package will be auto-installed if a Markdown file is searched by HyRolo.
   See "(hyperbole)HyRolo Concepts".

   *** hyrolo-file-list Support for File Wildcards, Variables and Dirs:

   The `hyrolo-file-list' variable that HyRolo uses to determine the files
   to search for pattern matches may not contain file patterns itself.

   If you include file wildcards in pathnames and `find-file-wildcards' is
   non-nil (the default), they will be expanded into matching files
   internally by HyRolo.  See "(emacs)Wildcards".

   If you include an Environment variable or Emacs Lisp variable with the
   ${var} format in a path, it will be resolved prior to searching the path.
   Variables with values that include multiple paths, e.g. PATH, are resolved
   to the first existing entry that matches.  See "(hyperbole)pathname".

   If you include an existing directory (invalid ones are ignored) in your
   hyrolo list, hyrolo will search recursively across all of its files
   that match `hyrolo-file-suffix-regexp'.  See `hpath.el#hpath:expand-list'.

   HyRolo will display a detailed error list if any invalid file type is
   included in the `hyrolo-file-list' after expansion.  See

   *** *HyRolo* Match Buffer Key Bindings:

   Improved movement keys:

   - {TAB} Move to next search match; works across all supported file types
   - {b} Move backward at the same outline level
   - {f} Move forward at the same outline level
   - {n} Move to the next visible outline heading
   - {p} Move to the previous visible outline heading
   - {u} Move up a heading level
   - {,} Move to the beginning of the current entry
   - {.} Move to the end of the current entry
   - {[} Move to previous @loc> line of previous file header
   - {]} Move to next     @loc> line of next file header

   Improved hide/show commands now work when in file headers:
   - {h} Hide the rest of the file header and matches after this line
   - {s} Show all of the file header and matches

   See "(hyperbole)HyRolo Keys".

   *** Koutline Fast Search: Koutlines may now be included in `hyrolo-file-list'
   and individual cells extracted properly with any HyRolo query.  Then the
   interactive commands:

   {t} show the top-level (highest matching level) matches
   {o} show an outline of matches
   {s} show/expand current match
   {h} hide current match
   {f/b/n/p} move to another match

   all work on Koutline cells displayed in the match buffer.  See
   "(hyperbole)HyRolo Concepts".

   *** Match Buffer Name Change: Changed match buffer name from "*Hyperbole
   Rolo*" to "*HyRolo*".

   *** Auto-Expand Hidden Text: Whenever point moves into a hidden/invisible part
   of the *HyRolo* buffer, the entire tree of entries below that point is
   auto-expanded/shown.  Presently, there is no auto-hide functionality.
   You must press {h} to hide entries or an entire file of matches when in
   the file header.

   *** Editing Entries Jumps to Current Position: The {e} command in the *HyRolo*
   match buffer now lets you edit the current point within the entry's source
   buffer, rather than jumping to the start of the entry.

   *** New HyRolo menu items ConsultFind and HelmFind: These appear when you
   independently load the `consult' or `helm-org-rifle' package.
   These menu items then use the related interactive search functions to
   search over the HyRolo file list.

   ConsultFind utilizes `consult-ripgrep' or `consult-grep'.  HelmFind uses
   the helm-org-rifle package and searches over .org and .otl files
   exclusively.  See "(hyperbole)ConsultFind".

   *** .otl and .outl Suffixed Files: Setup to auto-invoke `outline-mode'.

   *** hyrolo-date-format Empty String: Setting this variable to an empty string
   will disable adding and updating modification dates in HyRolo entries.

   *** hyrolo-hdr-and-entry-regexp: Rename to 'hyrolo-hdr-and-entry-regexp' and
   in 'hyrolo-mode' extend its value to include all multiple trailing whitespace
   chars after the entry delimiter.
   Make variable `hyrolo-entry-regexp' which does not match to file headers.

   ** IMPLICIT BUTTONS  (See "(hyperbole)Implicit Buttons").

   *** Action Button Result Display: Action buttons now display in the
   minibuffer the result of evaluating any type of action expression,
   using Lisp readable values.

   *** Compilation and Grep Error Lines: Error lines in the Emacs Regression
   Test buffer, *ert*, are now supported, as well as the 'Compiling
   ', 'Loading ' and 'In ' lines as well as source
   line references from Emacs Lisp native compilation within the
   *Async-native-compile-log* buffer.

   Added support for ERT "Test " lines to jump to the def of the
   symbol and for symbol and pathname references from backtraces in ERT

   Added jumping to the referenced location from Ruby traceback stack

   *** Emacs Regression Test Runs: New 'hyperbole-run-test-definition' implicit
   button type defined in "hypb-ert.el".  An Action Key press on the first
   line of an ert test definition (ert-deftest) within the test name,
   evaluates the definition and runs the test; this ensures that the latest
   version is always run.  An Assist Key press does likewise but runs the
   test with edebug, stepping through it.  This also works for tests defined
   with `ert-deftest-async' from the "ert-async" package.  See also "#Action
   Link Types to Run Tests".

   With the optional package, "ert-results", the Smart Keys can be used
   within the ERT results buffer to filter the display and to show the
   documentation for each test.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - ERT Results

   *** Highlighting of Ibut Names: New `property:ibut-face' used to highlight
   any <[name]> prefixing an implicit button.  All hproperty functions now
   support this face as well as the `hproperty:but-face' used for explicit

   *** Info Nodes: Better handling of embedded double quotes and added support
   for HTML " quoting.

   *** Improved # and Embedded Space Path Handling: If a path exists, don't
   treat its # hash marks as section markers, notably for #autosave# files.
   Allow for unquoted filenames with spaces in them in ls listings in shell
   buffers (assume files are tab-delimited).

   *** Ibut/Create Menu Item {C-h h i c}: Creates a named/labeled implicit
   button of any type.  Separates the name and the implicit button with
   " -  ".  See "(hyperbole)menu item, Ibut/Create".

   *** Ibut/Link Menu Item {C-h h i l} - Inserts an ibutton that links to point
   in another window.  With a C-u prefix argument, prompts for a name as
   well.  See "(hyperbole)menu item, Ibut/Link".

   *** Jump to Lisp Identifier Definition in More Buffers: Lisp identifiers are
   now recognized as programming etags in the *Warnings* byte-compilation
   buffer and in Flymake log and diagnostics buffers.

   *** Path Implicit Buttons: Much improved relative path handling, including
   expanding into executable paths when pathname is prefixed by ! or &,
   and handling info paths outside `Info-directory-list', like
   "man/hyperbole.info".  Also, prioritize 'load-path' and 'exec-path' above
   'Info-directory-list' within 'hpath:variables' when expanding pathnames.
   Remove outdated 'Info-directory' from 'hpath:variables' as well.

   Automatically invoke `outline-mode' on files with ".outl" suffix;
   previously, only ".otl" suffixes did this.

   *** Read-only Context Errors: Trigger errors when trying to create an
   implicit button with point on read-only text, read-only Org contexts,
   explicit buttons, or emacs push-buttons.

   *** Relative Info Paths: Info files with relative pathnames outside of the
   `Info-directory-list' now resolve properly, e.g. "man/hyperbole.info".

   *** Table of Contents Sections: Hyperbole now recognizes TOCs in any text
   derived major mode with the text-toc implicit button type.  An Action
   Key press on a line with a section name displays the section according
   to the Hyperbole referent display setting, typically leaving the TOC
   untouched in the selected window.  This also works in Internet standard
   RFC buffers.

   *** Youtube Snippet Links: Compact Action Buttons to play parts or whole
   Youtube videos and to search for videos by keyword.  See

   ** KOUTLINER  (See "(hyperbole)Koutliner").

   *** New Klink Format: Hash character, #, may now be used to separate a 
   pathname from a Koutline cell reference.  Both  and
   "koutline-path#cell-ref" work, e.g. "${hyperb:dir}/kotl/EXAMPLE.kotl#2a"

   *** Link to Cell Headings: A cell heading is a string at the beginning of the
   editable portion of a cell that ends with a colon or a newline.  Links
   to complete heading names now work: "${hyperb:dir}/kotl/EXAMPLE.kotl#Klinks"

   *** {M-S-} and {M-S-}: Org compatibility - Add tree promote and
   demote commands to these keys (same as existing {M-} and
   {M-} keys).  See "(hyperbole)Promoting and Demoting".

   *** {C-c s} Deletes Surrounding Whitespace: When a cell is split, it now deletes
   surrounding whitespace before performing the split.

   *** Star Outline Import Indented Headings: Added support for Emacs/Org
   star-based headings whose stars do not start at the beginning of a line,
   i.e. are indented.  See "(hyperbole)Inserting and Importing".

   *** Transpose Lines Down: Add 'kotl-mode:transpose-lines-down' command.

   ** MENUS  (See "(hyperbole)Menus").

   *** Minibuffer Menu Changes:

   - Instant Link Creation:

   Ebut/Link - Inserts a named ebutton that links to point in another
   window.  See "(hyperbole)menu item, Ebut/Link".

   Gbut/Link - A single name creates a new global link button to point.
   See "(hyperbole)menu item, Gbut/Link".

   Ibut/Link - Inserts an ibutton that links to point in another window.
   With a C-u prefix argument, prompts for a name as well.  See
   "(hyperbole)menu item, Ibut/Link".

   - Reload Menus and Smart Keys: Action Key press on top-level menu prefix
   reloads Hyperbole minibuffer menus and Smart Key handlers to reflect
   any recent edits.

   - Multi-line Menus: When a menu line is too long for the screen, it is
   automatically split into multiple lines and aligned by column for
   ease of access.

   *** Move Prefix Arg Number of Items: {M-b} and {M-f} move backward and
   forward by the number of items specified by any given prefix argument,
   as do {TAB} and {Shift-TAB}.  See "(hyperbole)minibuffer menu".

   ** PROGRAMMING INTERFACE CHANGES  (See "(hyperbole)Embedding Hyperbole").

   *** hui:ebut-link-directly:
   hui:ibut-link-directly: Instant direct Hyperbole links.

   *** hypb:mail-address-tld-regexp: Renamed from 'hypb-mail-address-tld-regexp'.
   hypb:mail-address-regexp: Renamed from 'hypb-mail-address-regexp'.
   hypb:mail-address-mode-list: Renamed from 'mail-address-mode-list'.
   Make all of these variables have a common prefix.

   *** (hypb:devdocs-lookup): Install and load devdocs package and then call its
   `devdocs-lookup' function.

   *** (hpath:find): Fix off-by-one (too high) error with relative line numbers.
   A relative line number of 1 means the first line, not the line after the
   first line, i.e. don't move at all, which of course can be left off but
   that way, a line number of 2 goes to the second line, which is more
   natural than moving down 2 lines, as a call to forward-line would.  This
   matches up with absolute line numbering, as well.

   *** (hpath:resolve): Add to resolve path variables without doing a path

   *** (hsys-org-meta-return): Centralize sharing of {M-RET} key with Org mode.

   *** (hypb:require-package): Add to install a package, if necessary, and
   require its library with the same name.

   *** (hypb:helm-info): Add to require helm package and call helm-info.

   *** (action:help): Allow for Action Button Assist Key :help functions, even
   if the action button type is not a Hyperbole type, i.e. is a regular

   *** (hproperty:but-clear-all): Clears all colorized Hyperbole button
   faces from the current buffer.
   (hproperty:but-clear): Renamed from hproperty:but-delete.

   *** (hyperbole-update-menus): Can now be called interactively to update
   the Hyperbole menubar and minibuffer menus if any edits are made.

   *** (hyrolo-consult-grep): Interactively grep or ripgrep the HyRolo file
   list, with live in-buffer display using the automatically installed
   consult package.

   *** (hyrolo-helm-org-rifle): Interactively match to HyRolo file list
   entries using the automatically installed helm-org-rifle package.

   (hyrolo-helm-org-rifle-directory): Behaves similarly but searches
   over `org-directory'.

   *** (hyrolo-outline-*): Add hyrolo-specific versions of all
   `outline-minor-mode' commands to support HyRolo searches across multiple
   file types.

   *** (hyrolo-funcall-match, hyrolo-map-matches): Add these functions to
   wrap function calls in the HyRolo display matches buffer that require the
   original major mode of the location, e.g. outline commands.

   *** (hyrolo-map-logic): Add doc for last arg, whole-buffer-flag.

   *** (hyrolo-outline-minor-mode): Define and enable in `hyrolo-mode'.

   *** (hyrolo-grep-file): Remove `backward-search-limit' as may miss prior
   entry starting positions.

   *** (hyrolo-add-match): Remove first arg, `hyrolo-matches-buffer' and
   use global `hyrolo-display-buffer' instead.

   *** (hyrolo-auto-mode-alist): Add new variable to control major modes used
   by files read in for HyRolo searches.

   (hypb:major-mode-from-file-name): Rename to
   `hyrolo-major-mode-from-file-name' and move to "hyrolo.el".  Prefix
   `auto-mode-alist' values with those in `hyrolo-auto-mode-alist'.

   (hyrolo-logic): Change call from `hyrolo-find-file' to
   `hyrolo-find-file-noselect' to enable use of `hyrolo-auto-mode-alist'.

   *** hsys-org-roam.el: This library supports interactively grepping over
   org-roam files with live in-buffer display.  It uses the automatically
   installed consult package when `hsys-org-roam-consult-grep' is invoked.

   *** (hsys-org-consult-grep): Add to search `org-directory' using consult

   *** (hattr:list): Now also returns the attributes of an Emacs push-button
   using `hattr:emacs-button-attributes', as recognized by

   *** (hui:ibut-create, ibut:create, ibut:delimit, ibut:operate):
   Add interactive, named/labeled implicit button creation.  For
   `ibut:create', improve doc and add but-sym arg which can supply all
   other arguments in its properties.

   *** (ibut:label-key-match): Return filtered list of ibut labels.

   *** (ibut:label-sort-instances): Sort label key instance numbers.

   *** (ibut:label-instances-regexp): Rename to `ibut:name-instances-regexp'.
   (ibut:label-regexp): Rename to `ibut:name-regexp'.

   *** (ebut:label-start, ebut:label-end): Rename from `ebut:start' and

   *** (hpath:delimited-possible-path): Add support for HTML "
   quoting and embedded double quotes.

   *** (hargs:read): Add support for 'i' interactive spec (ignored arg).

   *** (set:replace-key-value): Rename from `set:replace'.

   (set:replace): Now replaces a non-keyed old-value with a new value.

   (set:replace-member): Added this new function to replace an existing
   set member or to add a new one if no matching existing member.

   (set:members): Now keeps members in stable order; previously returned
   in reverse order.

   *** (hycontrol-framemove-*): Add hycontrol-framemove-direction,
   hycontrol-framemove-up, hycontrol-framemove-left,
   hycontrol-framemove-right, and hycontrol-framemove-down to move among
   active frames.

   *** (kimport:initialize): Add optional `erase-flag' arg to erase buffer
   before importing elements.  And use in all kimport commands.

   *** (hhist:pop): Renamed from `hhist:remove'.

   *** (hypb:activate-interaction-log-mode): Add to configure and enable the
   interaction-log package for use with Hyperbole.  It displays a
   font-locked log of Emacs keys, commands and Hyperbole minibuffer menu
   items executed.  Useful in demo videos or presentations.

   *** (hui:menu-exit-hyperbole): Renamed from `hui:hypb-exit'.

   *** (hui:menu-choose): Renamed from `hui:menu-select'.

   *** (hyperbole-web-search): Added optional `return-search-expr-flag' to
   return search expression rather than doing the search, to build up more
   involved search commands.

   *** (hypb:replace-match-string): Removed this unused function.

   *** (hyrolo-verify, hyrolo-isearch, hyrolo-next-match,
   hyrolo-previous-match, hyrolo-isearch-for-regexp): Added support for
   use in main HyRolo file, not just the match buffer.

   *** (hyrolo-find-file-noselect-function): Added so can customize low-level
   function used to read in each file searched by HyRolo.

   *** (hyrolo-previous-match): Changed so this can be used in a predicate
   when a match is found.

   *** (hyrolo-grep): Added support for `outline-regexp' and `outline-level'
   variables from multiple file types.

   (hyrolo-mode-outline-level): Added and used in `hyrolo-mode'.

   (hyrolo-mode): Set the local value of `outline-level' to
   `hyrolo-mode-outline-level' and define that function to support star
   outlines and Koutlines.  Also, made `hyrolo-hdr-and-entry-regexp' local and set
   it to its default value, after which it may be modified.

   *** (hyrolo-fgrep-file, hyrolo-grep-file, hyrolo-fgrep, hyrolo-grep,
   hyrolo-word): Added optional `headline-only' argument to limit searches
   to headlines.

   *** (hyrolo-next-regexp-match, hyrolo-next-match-function): Added to allow
   for different hyrolo entry matching functions.

   *** (hyrolo-next-visible-heading): Rename to `hyrolo-outline-next-visible-heading'.

   *** (ibtype:test-p, ibtype:act): Add these to mirror actype functions.
   (ibtype:elisp-symbol): Add alias similar to existing actype one.  So
   that (ibtype:act ) executes the ibtype action if the
   current buffer context supports it.

   *** (ibut:at-p): Fixed to return nil if name and lbl-key are both nil.  Also
   added support for <> and {} ibut delimiters.

   *** (smart-push-button): Added and referenced in `hkey-help' to trigger
   push-button-specific help output.

   *** (smart-emacs-lisp-mode-p ,smart-lisp-mode-p): Change to use `derived-mode-p'
   rather than checking for 'major-mode' matches directly.
   (smart-emacs-lisp-mode-p): Add optional `skip-identifier-flag'.

   *** (hpath:to-markup-anchor, hpath:to-line): Updated to find matches
   outside narrowed area.

   *** (hyperb:path-being-loaded): Removed; no longer used.

   *** (hpath:shorten): Added and used in 'ibut:insert-text'.

   *** (hui:link-possible-types): When reading a dir or file and not on such a
   string, use the 'default-directory' or 'buffer-file-name'.  Previously
   just returned nil in such circumstances.

   *** (gbut:save-buffer): Added to save global button file after edits.

   *** (kotl-mode:goto-cell-ref): Added to display cell refs after a kotl
   mode buffer has already been read in.

   *** (kotl-mode:goto-heading): Added to go to a string heading at the
   beginning of a cell.  Must end with a colon or a newline.

   *** (hui:link-possible-types): At end of any line in a dired buffer,
   return (link-to-directory default-directory), so when using any
   link-directly command, always have a way to link to the dired buffer

   *** (hyrolo-expand-list): Added to expand `hyrolo-file-list', filtering
   to matches of `hyrolo-file-suffix-regexp'.  See documentation for
   `hpath:expand-list' for the kinds of expansions performed.

   *** (hpath:expand-list): Added to expand paths, filtering final list
   to files with match-regexp.  Paths expansion substitutes up to one
   ${variable} per path, expands file wildcards when 'find-file-wildcards'
   is non-nil (the default),  and recursively walks directory trees for files
   with match-regexp.

   *** (hyrolo-map-level, hyrolo-sort-level): Remove 'hyrolo-file' arg
   since had already been using current buffer instead.

   *** (hpath:file-position-to-line-and-column): Add to translate
   character positions to an implicit link to line and column.

   *** (hyrolo-next-match-function, hyrolo-next-regexp-match): Change to return
   position of the beginning of the match rather than the end.

   *** (hyrolo-grep-file): Handle when no entry delimiters, then use
   the current line as the entry.

   *** (hyrolo-name-at): Rename to 'hyrolo-name-at-p'; change return value
   to a cons of ( . ).  If no entry delimiters,
   use the current, non-empty line as  and add a 'hyrolo-line-entry
   text property to it.

   *** (hyrolo-to): Add support for non-delimited single line entries.

   *** (hyrolo-helm-org-rifle): Filter out any non-file buffers.

   *** (hpath:expand, hpath:expand-list): Add optional exists-flag to return
   nil if expanded path does not exist.

   *** (hyrolo--expanded-file-list, hyrolo-set-file-list,
   hyrolo-file-list-changed): Finish support for recursively searching dirs
   and expanding file wildcards in 'hyrolo-file-list' by adding the above
   and caching the expanded list in 'hyrolo--expanded-file-list'.

   *** (hyrolo-edit): Improve 'completing-read' prompt.

   *** (rolo-display-buffer, rolo-file-list, rolo-entry-regexp): Remove all of
   these variables that have been obsolete since V6.  Use hyrolo- prefix instead.

   *** (hyrolo-initialize-file-list): Completely remove this function, obsolete since
   V8.0.1.  Use `hyrolo--initialize-file-list' instead.

   *** (defgroup 'hyperbole-hyrolo): Change from 'hyperbole and 'hyperbole-hyrolo.

   *** (hyrolo-get-file-list): Add and change refs to `hyrolo-file-list' to use
   this instead, so can get the expanded version of the file list.

   *** (hyrolo-expand-path-list): Add to expand a list of paths containing env or lisp
   variables, directories and file patterns with wildcards into a final list of files.

   *** (hpath:expand-list): Add to recursively expand matching files within a list of

   *** (hypb:major-mode-from-file-name): Add for initial use in "hyrolo.el".

   *** (hui--ibut-link-directly-to-dired): Handle alternative dired formats with text
   after the last colon on the first

   *** (hywconfig-add-by-name, hywconfig-delete-by-name, hywconfig-restore-by-name): 
   Change all these to return a  boolean value based on whether the operation
   succeeds or not.

   *** (hywconfig-set-names): Replace with `hywconfig-named-set-entries'.
   (hywconfig-get-names): Replace with 'hywconfig-named-get-names'.

   *** (hywconfig-named-get-entries, hywconfig-named-put, hywconfig-named-get): Add.

   *** (hbut:actype, ibut:type): Add for Hyperbole API use.
   (ibut:is-type-p): Add to give both an ibut and a type for comparison and API use.

   *** Add "hsys-xref.el".  Rename all Hyperbole defined 'xref-' functions to 'hsys-xref-'
   and move here.  The xref function, 'xref--item-at-point' is redefined to handle
   the beginning of buffer.

   *** (ibut:act-label, ebut:act-label): Rename `ebut:act' and `ibut:act' since they take
   a label as arg.
   (ebut:act, ibut:act): Add new act functions taking an hbut as an arg.
   (hbut:act-label): Add to match same func for ebuts and ibuts.

   ** ORG MODE INTEGRATION (See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Org Mode").

   *** Automatic Fix of Mixed Org Versions: Loading Hyperbole (via its
   `hyperb:init' function) automatically detects and resolves the
   hard-to-fix problem when some older builtin Org libraries are loaded
   before a newer version of the Org package is loaded.  The fix utilizes
   libraries exclusively from the newer Org package.  See the doc for

   *** Org Links Outside Org Buffers: The `org-link' actype now opens links
   found inside and outside of Org buffers.

   *** Interactive Org Directory Consult Grep: {M-x hsys-org-consult-grep
   RET} interactively greps your `org-directory' files with live in-buffer
   display as you move through matching lines.

   *** Interactive Org-Roam DB Consult Grep: {M-x hsys-org-roam-consult-grep
   RET} interactively greps org-roam files with live in-buffer display as
   you move through matching lines.  It uses the automatically installed
   consult-org-roam package when invoked.  See

   *** Org and Org Roam IDs: New `org-id' implicit button type and
   `link-to-org-id-marker' action type that jump to the referent of an Org
   ID or Org Roam ID at point.  If a marker does not yet exist, there is
   the `link-to-org-id' action type.  An Action Key drag across windows
   ending at an Org ID will create a link button with this last action
   type, which will jump to the ID's definition regardless of whether the
   link was to the definition or a reference.  See "(hyperbole) ibtypes

   *** Org Code Blocks: On a header :dir directory, the Action Key displays
   that directory in dired.  The Assist Key anywhere in the header removes
   any results for the code block.  Smart Keys work the same when on a
   #+RESULTS header as when on a code source header.  Smart Key tag
   lookup now works in Org code blocks.  Smart Keys on Org internal
   targets now work just as they do on radio button targets.

   *** HyRolo Integration with Org 9.7 and Up: Support "org-fold.el" and other
   newer features fo Org mode.

   *** Todo Cycling: An Action Key press on an Org mode todo state keyword,
   cycles to the next state.  An Assist Key press in the same place cycles
   to the next set of states, if any.

   *** Bobp Hyperbole Doc File Cycling: Allow for org global cycling at the start
   of a buffer on a non-heading line within Hyperbole Doc/ files when displayed
   from Hyperbole menu items.

   *** {C-c /}: The Hyperbole {C-c /} web search binding defers to the org-mode
   binding, `org-show-todo-tree', when in Org mode, but uses the improved
   Hyperbole command version, `hsys-org-todo-occur', which allows filtering
   to specific todo states.

   ** TEST CASES  (See "${hyperb:dir}/test").

   *** Hyperbole Automated Testing: Over 400 automated test cases.  Simply run
   'make test-all' or 'make test' from the command-line when in the
   Hyperbole source directory and you should see all tests pass.  If any
   fail, you can press the Action Key to see the source of the failure.
   Full testing is supported under POSIX systems only.  See "Makefile" and

   *** The Hyperbole team's CI/CD process automatically runs all test cases
   against Emacs major versions 27, 28 and 29 and the current master
   branch tip whenever a Hyperbole code change is checked in against git.

   *** ERT Test Case Symbols Jump to Definition: In Elisp and Lisp interaction
   buffers, the Action Key jumps to the definition of any such symbol while
   the Assist Key displays the symbol's documentation.  This requires that
   a TAGS table be built in the project root directory with the following
   etags command-line option:
   etags --regex={lisp}'/(ert-deftest[ \t]+\([^ \t\n\r\f()]+\)/' 

   For the Hyperbole source code itself, you can do this via 'make tags' from
   within the Hyperbole source directory, `hyperb:dir'.

   *** Run Hyperbole Tests via Make: Use the 'test' target and provide a pattern
   of test names to match like so:

   make test test=hyrolo

   to run just the HyRolo associated tests.

   To enable, full backtraces and not truncated ones, add  'FULL_BT=' at the end:

   make test test=hyrolo FULL_BT=

   *** QA: Many quality improvements across Hyperbole and integration with
   Emacs updates with backward compatibility from Emacs 27 through Emacs
   29 releases.

   ** WINDOW GRIDS (See "(hyperbole)grid of windows").

   *** Grid by File Pattern: Fixed so prompt for a string pattern rather than
   a file name and forced use of full pathnames to avoid improper relative
   path resolution.

   Updated to use prefix arg as grid size or to autosize when not given or
   given an invalid value.

   See "(hyperbole)hycontrol-windows-grid-by-file-pattern".

   *                                   V8.0.0


   *** Installation: Hyperbole package installation options are greatly
   expanded.  Stable or in-development branches may be installed with the
   Emacs package manager.  The Straight package manager may be used to
   keep up with git-based development and submit pull requests.  And
   stable and in-development tar balls are available for manual
   installation.  See "(hyperbole)Installation".

   *** Global Minor Mode: Hyperbole is now a global minor mode that can be
   toggled with {M-x hyperbole-mode RET}, meaning all of its key bindings
   can easily be enabled or disabled whenever desired.  Your init file
   needs to have (hyperbole-mode 1) in it instead of (require 'hyperbole)
   or Hyperbole will not be enabled upon startup.  See "(hyperbole)Usage".

   Modeline Indicator: In the modeline where minor modes are shown, "Hypb"
   now appears whenever Hyperbole is active.

   Hooks: When hyperbole-mode is enabled, hyperbole-mode-hook and
   hyperbole-mode-on-hook are run.  When hyperbole-mode is disabled,
   hyperbole-mode-hook and hyperbole-mode-off-hook are run.

   Lexical Binding: All code is now largely lexically bound, improving
   quality and debugability.

   ** ORG MODE (See "hui-mouse.el#defun smart-org").

   *** M-RET: Reworked M-RET interface so can control how much or little of
   Hyperbole works in Org mode when Hyperbole minor mode is enabled.  See
   "(hyperbole)enable org-mode support" and "hsys-org.el".

   *** hsys-org-enable-smart-keys: New customization to replace
   `inhibit-hsys-org'.  This applies only in Org major/minor modes when
   hyperbole-mode is active.  t means enable Smart Key support everywhere.
   The symbol, buttons, is the default; it means the Smart Keys are active
   only when point is within a Hyperbole button.  A nil value means no
   Smart Key support so {M-RET} behaves just as it does normally in Org
   mode.  See "(hyperbole)Org-mode".  Use {C-h h c o} to customize this

   This table summarizes the operation:

   | Set To       | Smart Key Context | Hyperbole Button | Org Link | Fallback Command |
   | buttons      | Ignore            | Activate         | Activate | org-meta-return  |
   | nil          | Ignore            | Ignore           | Ignore   | org-meta-return  |
   | t            | Activate          | Activate         | Activate | None             |


   *** Simple Action Link Button Type Creation: `defal' is a new, easy-to-use
   construct that generates new action button types from a type name and a
   single simple format expression, allowing non-programmers to create
   their own implicit action button link types that execute key series,
   display URLs, display the contents of pathnames or invoke functions.
   See "(hyperbole)Action Button Link Types" or the "DEMO#Defining New
   Action Button Types" section.

   *** Easy Implicit Link Button Type Creation: `defil' is a new construct for
   those familiar with regular expressions but not much Emacs Lisp.  This
   creates more flexible implicit button types than `defal' where the
   delimiters and text substitution can be specified with regular
   expressions.  Actions are limited to executing key series, displaying
   URLs, displaying the contents of pathnames or invoking functions.  See
   "(hyperbole)Implicit Button Link Types".

   Elisp programmers should use the existing `defib' macro for full
   flexibility in implicit button type creation.  See "hibtypes.el" for
   examples and "(hyperbole)Programmatic Implicit Button Types" for


   *** Hyperbole Automated Testing: Extensive quality improvements throughout
   Hyperbole thanks in part to over 230 test cases now included in the
   test/ subdirectory.  Simply run 'make test-all' or 'make test' from the
   command-line when in the Hyperbole source directory and you should see
   all tests pass.  If any fail, you can press the Action Key to see the
   source of the failure.  Full testing is supported under POSIX systems
   only.  See "Makefile" and "test/MANIFEST".

   *** Action Link Types to Run Tests: The file "hypb-ert.el" contains two
   action link types:
   hyperbole-run-test  - run a single Hyperbole test by name
   hyperbole-run-tests - run one more tests matching a pattern

   Example uses:
   Run the test hbut-defal-url

   Run the tests specified by the test selector hbut-defal

   Run all tests

   *** Installation Testing: install-test/local-install-test.sh automatically
   installs Hyperbole for testing from one or more of its releases or
   development branches.  See "Makefile" and "install-test/MANIFEST".

   ** HYROLO  (See "(hyperbole)HyRolo").

   *** Faster searching within HyRolo match buffer: After performing a HyRolo
   search with point in the match buffer, if you want different results,
   you can quickly do a new regular expression HyRolo search with {r} or a
   string/logical search with {C-u r}.  This key had moved to previous
   matches but that is already bound to {Shift-TAB} and {M-TAB}.

   *** Auto-Expansion of Entries: If an entry is collapsed/hidden, moving to
   any hidden part auto-expands it and then re-collapses it when point is
   moved to another entry (just like isearch).  A side-effect of this is
   that the {h} hide entry subtree command now moves to the beginning of
   the entry.

   *** Logical Regular Expression Searches: Expanded logical searches to allow
   for regexp-based searches using logical operations prefixed with 'r-',
   so a query might be: (r-and regex1 (r-not regex2)).

   *** Separate Last String and Regular Expression Searches: Removed conflict
   between different types of searches when choosing to search again for a
   prior match.

   *** hyrolo-find-file: New command that selects and edits a file in
   `hyrolo-file-list', defaulting to the first listed file when not given
   a prefix arg.  Available in the minibuffer menu as Rolo/File and the
   pulldown menu as Rolo/Find-HyRolo-File.

   *** Sorting Entries Rewritten: {C-h h r o} re-ordering HyRolo entries has
   been rewritten for compatibility and improved debugging with the latest
   Emacs releases.

   *** hyrolo-highlight-face: Now uses the Emacs 'match' face by default.

   *** Under MS Windows, the default HyRolo file is now "~/.rolo.otl" like all
   other operating systems, instead of "~/_rolo.otl".  Any older file name
   will be relocated to the newer name.

   ** KOUTLINER  (See "(hyperbole)Koutliner").

   *** Export Koutlines to Collapsible Web Pages: {C-h h k f d} or {M-x
   kexport:display RET} command creates and displays a web-based
   expandable/collapsible outline from the Koutline in the current buffer.
   See "(hyperbole)Exporting" and the new Koutliner Format submenu.

   *** Org File Importation: Org files may now be imported to a Koutline using
   {M-x kimport:file RET}.

   *** Org Table Support: Org table editing now automatically works in the
   Koutliner via Org table minor mode.  Use {M-x orgtbl-mode RET} to
   toggle this on and off.  A press of the Action Key on a | symbol, also
   toggles this minor mode on or off. See "(Org)Tables" for details.  Use
   a prefix arg with {TAB} to promote/demote Koutline trees when in a
   table since {TAB} moves between fields within a table.

   *** New Tree Movement Commands: Like Org mode, {[M-down]} and {[M-up]} move
   the current tree past or before other trees at the same level.  With a
   prefix argument, move past that many trees.

   *** New Tree Promotion/Demotion Keys: Tree promotion and demotion keys now
   match many of the defaults in Org mode and Outline mode, plus some
   easier to type ones.  The tables below summarize which keys work
   whether inside an Org table or outside.  See "(hyperbole)Promoting and

   | Promotion Inside Org Table | Demotion Inside Org Table   |
   | M-0 Shift-TAB or M-0 M-TAB | M-0 TAB                     |
   | C-c C-,                    | C-c C-.                     |
   | C-c C-<                    | C-c C->                     |

   | Promotion Outside Org Table | Demotion Outside Org Table |
   | Shift-TAB or M-TAB          | TAB                        |
   | M-left                      | M-right                    |
   | C-c C-,                     | C-c C-.                    |
   | C-c C-<                     | C-c C->                    |

   *** New Mail Tree Key Binding: The `kotl-mode:mail-tree' command that
   extracts the current view of a Koutline in text-only format and creates
   an outgoing email message with it, has moved from {C-c @} to {C-c C-@}
   to prevent conflict with the global hycontrol-window-grid command bound
   to {C-c @}.

   *** New Copy Command: The new command, `kotl-mode:copy-tree-or-region-to-buffer',
   bound to {C-c M-c} copies a Koutline tree or the active region to a
   specified buffer.  Prompts dictate whether invisible text is included
   or not.  This allows copying parts of Koutlines directly into other
   buffers without having to copy to a mail/message buffer first.

   *** Klink Copy: When `transient-mark-mode' is enabled and there is no active region:

   within a link to a Koutline cell (klink), {M-w} copies the klink;
   then {C-y} yanks it into any buffer you desire.

   {M-w} outside of a klink instead copies a reference to the current
   Koutline cell.

   {C-x r s} prompts for an Emacs register and saves either the current
   klink or the current cell reference to the register; {C-x r i} with
   the same register then inserts at point the saved Koutline reference.

   The new commands that you can bind to your own keys for copying klink
   references to the current cell to the kill ring and to registers are:

   *** Klinks Ignored Outside Comments in Programming Language Modes: In
   previous Hyperbole versions, this was true for C-based language modes.
   Now it is true for any programming mode descended from `prog-mode'.

   *** Prevent Movement Outside Editable Cell Bounds: Add
   kotl-mode:pre-self-insert-command as a pre-command-hook to prevent
   Koutline editing with point in an invalid location, after a
   mouse-set-point outside of editable bounds.

   *** {C-h h k e} (kotl-mode:example): Update to allow for an optional
   directory or absolute file path.  Prompt for the path when interactive.
   Given a prefix argument, archive any existing file and start with a
   fresh EXAMPLE.kotl file for editing.  Programmatically, give a 2nd arg
   of t to force archiving of any existing file and starting with a fresh
   EXAMPLE.kotl file.

   *** Koutlines have a hidden top-level root cell 0 that allows referring to
   the whole outline as a tree.  Now attributes of this cell can be set,
   retrieved or removed like any other cell.

   {C-c h} prompts for a kcell id and displays its attributes.  {C-u C-c
   h} prompts for a kcell id and displays the attributes for it and its
   subtree; use 0 as the kcell id to see attributes for all visible cells
   in the outline.

   {C-c C-i} sets an attribute of the cell at point.
   {C-u C-c C-i} removes an attribute of the cell at point.
   {C-0 C-c C-i} sets an attribute of the invisible 0 root cell.
   {C--1 C-c C-i} removes an attribute of the invisible 0 root cell.

   *** Modes to Ignore Klinks: C-style languages use  that can be
   mistaken for klinks.  New customizations 'klink:ignore-modes' and
   'klink:c-style-modes' set the modes where klink matches are ignored.

   *** Uncommented Klinks in Lisp Interaction and Markup Buffers: Klinks are
   now recognized in the *scratch* buffer and 'hui-select-markup-mode'
   buffers without the need to be within comments.  This is more natural
   as there is no expectation that everything in the *scratch* buffer is
   valid Lisp.

   ** MENUS

   *** Minibuffer Menu Changes:

   - Items Activated by First Capital Letter: Used to be by the first
   letter.  This allows more flexibility in naming, e.g.  where two
   items start with the same first letter.

   - {X} exits Hyperbole mode: This disables the Hyperbole minor mode
   completely and exits from the menu.  {C-h h} re-enables the global
   minor mode and display the top-level Hyperbole menu.

   - Menu Selection a Single Command: Set 'this-command' and command
   keys to be the full key sequence for a Hyperbole minibuffer menu
   command.  This ensures a single command appears in history for
   clean logging of menu key sequences.

   *** Minibuffer and Pulldown Menu Changes:

   - Find/Web/Jump: Use the Emacs webjump library to select a URL by
   name and jump to it.

   - Koutliner Formatting Menus: Full set of commands to import text and
   outline files to Koutlines and to export Koutlines to HTML for web
   viewing.  See "(hyperbole)Inserting and Importing" and

   - Button Modify Commands Removed: Use the Edit commands instead.
   This applies to the pull-down menu as well.

   ** SMART (ACTION AND ASSIST) KEYS  (See "(hyperbole)Smart Keys").

   *** Explicit buttons may be created in any kind of temporary buffer without
   an attached file, similar to what already existed for mail message

   *** 'ls' and 'grep' Directory Changes:  'ls' listings are now recognized
   properly, prepending the preceding directory to each entry for viewing.

   Similarly, if a 'cd' or 'pushd' command is issued prior to a 'grep -n'
   or 'ripgrep' command, Hyperbole will prepend that directory to the grep
   output before jumping to the resultant path.

   *** Git Log Grep: New commands, 'hypb:fgrep-git-log' and 'hypb:grep-git-log',
   allow f/grepping over repo changesets and listing associated commit log
   messages.  The Action Key on any resulting log entry displays the commit

   *** Pathname Implicit Buttons: Much improved pathname handling including
   multiple variables per path, embedded . or .. within paths, better
   recognition of semicolon separated pathnames in Windows PATH variable.

   Variable substitutions are now made with fixed case, so that the case
   of a value with both upper and lower case characters is never changed,
   for example a value of ${HOME}.

   Generalized Anchored Pathnames: "pathname#anchor" now works in
   programming modes as well as text and outlining modes where anchors are
   prefixed with the comment character in each mode or a # symbol.

   PATH-style Variable Support: An Action Key press on a defined PATH-style
   variable name, e.g. MANPATH, will prompt with completion for one of the
   paths and will then display that.  If it is the colon or semicolon-
   separated string of paths value from a PATH-style variable, the path at
   point is displayed; empty paths, e.g. :: represents the current directory,
   ’.’.  Must have at least four paths within the variable value for this
   to work.

   file:// URLs are now resolved properly.

   *** Any Lisp or environment variable that stores a directory or set of
   directories may be prepended to any "grep -n" output line with the form
   "${var-name}/" and the Action Key will recognize the directory and
   display the appropriate line.

   *** Treat 'kbd' Strings as Key Series Buttons: An Action Key press within
   the string of (kbd "string") issues the keys in string as if they were
   pressed individually, i.e. the same as the key series, {string}.

   *** Mail Address Activation Everywhere: Email addresses act as implicit
   buttons in major modes derived from `hypb:mail-address-mode-list'.  If
   you set that to nil, however, they will be recognized in all major

   *** Magit Mode Support: Just click or press the Action Key somewhere and it
   will typically display what you want.  Extensive Action Key support in
   Magit modes for cycling through display views and displaying items.

   Action Mouse clicks on the modeline cycles display of commits/diffs in
   a buffer.  In Magit Log and Blame listing modes, the Action Key
   displays the associated commit or file line.  The Action Key also
   handles single line log entries that begin with the word 'commit' ,
   displaying their commits even from shell and compilation buffers.

   *** Debugger Source: In Python tracebacks, may be on a line just below the
   source reference line so if not on a Hyperbole button, move back a line
   before checking.

   *** Todotxt Mode Support: Smart key support for the todotxt mode

   *** UNIX Shell Errors: Jump to associated source line from a shell error of
   the form: ": line : ".

   *** Internet RFC Links (e.g. RFC-822): Change to using http to retrieve
   RFCs instead of ftp since this is disabled in many environments.
   Always display with Emacs' web browser rather than externally.

   *** Implicit Button Types Reprioritization: Modified "hibtypes.el" so if
   evaluate: (symset:clear 'ibtypes) and then reload hibtypes.{el,elc},
   the priority order of all implicit button types is reset.


   *** Customizable Display Program File Mappings:
   The variables:
   are all customizable and their default values utilize the per operating
   system generic 'open' commands based on file suffix associations (for
   file types not handled by Emacs).

   The new customizable variable, `hpath:external-file-suffixes', holds a
   regular expression of operating system independent file suffixes to
   open outside Emacs with the Action Key when not handled by


   *** With the Hyperbole menu Cust/Debug-Toggle enabled, the messages printed
   for each Smart Key press now include the action type and its arguments
   for improved debugging.

   *** Edebuggable Hyperbole Types: `defib' and `defact' type definitions are
   now interactively debuggable via edebug-defun {C-M-x}.

   *** ebut:program: Programmatically create an explicit Hyperbole button at
   point from LABEL, ACTYPE (action type), and optional ARGS for actype.

   *** gbut:ebut-program: Programmatically add global explicit buttons at the
   end of the personal button file.

   *** kbd-key implicit button type: Interactive creation now allows for a
   full key series, not just a single key binding.

   *** kbd-key:is-p: Added this new predicate to test whether point is within
   a brace-delimited key series.

   *** kbd-key:execute: Added to programmatically or interactively execute a
   non-normalized key series stored in a string.

   *** hypb:def-to-buffer: Quick copying of program definitions and insertion
   at the start of another buffer.  Can be bound and used in key series.

   *** smart-lisp-find-tag: New function that automatically finds tags tables
   and jumps to Emacs Lisp definitions.  It can be used in any type of
   file as an action button, e.g. .

   *** ibut:at-p: Trigger an error if any implicit button type predicate
   permanently moves point to simplify debugging such predicates.

   *** hypb:string-count-matches: Count regexp matches in a string.

   ** ACE WINDOW PACKAGE INTEGRATION - fast window and buffer switching

   *** After installing the ace-window package and loading Hyperbole, execute
   (hkey-ace-window-setup "\M-o") to enable the following capabilities:

   *** Fast Window Links: The hkey-window-link command bound to {M-o w}
   rapidly creates a link button at point in the selected window, linking
   to point in the window chosen when prompted.  See "DEMO2#Displaying
   File and Buffer Items and Moving Buffers".

   *** Throw A Region Elsewhere Within the Same Buffer: {M-o t }
   when used with a selected region can now throw to the source buffer as
   long as point is outside the selected region in the target window.

   *                                   V7.1.3


   - Global Org Link Activation: The Action Key now activates Org links in
   non-Org buffers if 'inhibit-hsys-org' is nil (the default).  The Assist
   Key shows help.

   - Org Agenda Item Display: The Action Key displays the Org node
   associated with Agenda items such as TODOs in another window.  The
   Assist Key shows help.

   - Org Mode: Raised to near top priority in implicit button types so that
   pathnames, URLs, etc. within Org links are handled by Org rather than

   - Smart Dired Sidebar: Smart Key support for the dired-sidebar
   package.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Dired Sidebar Mode".

   - Helm Mode:  The Smart Keys do all sorts of things in helm completion buffers
   and the associated minibuffer.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Helm Mode".

   - Magit Mode: Action Key expands/collapses like {TAB} and Assist Key
   jumps to items like {RET}.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Magit Mode".


   - {Key Series} Button Support for Helm and Counsel: Key series buttons
   with M-x commands now work properly when counsel-mode or helm-mode are
   enabled and M-x is rebound.

   - Markdown In-file Links: With point on the link title, in-file links are
   now activated properly (previously point had to be on the link itself).

   - Git#directory Buttons: New flag, hibtypes-git-use-magit-flag, which if
   set to t and Magit is available, then when activating a git directory
   button, such as git#/hyperbole, use Magit rather than Dired.

   - Explicit Buttons Work Immediately: Previously you had to save the buffer
   in which you created an explicit button before it would work.  Now they
   work immediately after creation.


   - Helm Mode: Added Hyperbole Manual section, "Smart Key - Helm Mode"
   that works on helm completions.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key -
   Helm Mode".

   - Hyperbole Slides: Slides used in a talk by the author on the history
   and capabilities of Hyperbole, see "HY-TALK/HY-TALK.org".

   - Magit Mode: Added Hyperbole Manual section, "Smart Key - Magit Mode"
   that expands/collapses/jumps to Magit items.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key -
   Magit Mode".

   *                                   V7.1.2


   - Link Creation via Drag: Automatic link referent detection has been
   expanded.  You can now drag the Smart Mouse Key across windows or use
   'hkey-operate' to create an explicit link button to an Emacs
   Bookmark or to a Texinfo Node.

   - link-to-texinfo-node Action Type: Now takes a first file parameter,
   rather than working only on the current buffer.


   - Visual Command Support: Use of these additional Emacs commands:
   beginning-of-visual-line, end-of-visual-line,  and kill-visual-line.


   - Global Key Bindings for Hyperbole Menu Items: Use
   {M-x hyperbole-set-key RET} to create a shorter global key binding
   to any Hyperbole minibuffer item.

   - Gbut/Create: When invoked with a prefix argument, will create a
   global implicit button rather than an explicit button.  Simple provide
   a name/label and the text of the implicit button including delimiters.

   - Gbut/Delete: Added to delete explicit or implicit global buttons.

   - Gbut/Modify: The name/label and the text (and thus the action) of global
   implicit buttons may now be modified.  Hyperbole automatically determines
   whether a button is explicit or implicit from the button name selected.


   - Click Emacs Buttons with Left Mouse Button: When using mouse-1
   to follow Emacs buttons/links, Emacs actually uses the binding
   of mouse-2.  With unshifted Hyperbole mouse keys, this mouse-2
   binding is incompatible as it is the Action Key.  This release
   resolves this problem and allows either mouse-1 or mouse-2 to be
   used to click on native Emacs buttons.

   - Drag and Drop Region with Left Mouse Button: When
   'mouse-drag-and-drop-region' is non-nil and a region is active,
   Hyperbole now properly supports using mouse-1 to visually drag from
   within the region and drop the text somewhere else.  Then click the
   left mouse button again to de-activate the dropped region before

   *                                   V7.1.1


   - Global Buttons: Added a new example of a labeled global implicit button
   displaying a todo file maintained in Koutliner format.  See
   "DEMO#Global Buttons".

   - Within one Emacs session, invoking the DEMO with {C-h h d d} now leaves
   point where it was so you can continue working your way through it.

   - You can now move between matching < and > as well as { and } delimiter
   pairs with {C-M-n} and {C-M-p}.


   - Gbut/Rename: Added renaming of global explicit and named labeled

   - {kbd-key} Key Series: Greatly expanded the keys handled by
   brace-delimited implicit key series buttons.  Added support for
   , , C-M-, non-ASCII CONTROL and META key codes, keypad
   keys, function keys, and these modifier keys: CONTROL, ALT,
   HYPER, META, SUPER and SHIFT (when whitespace separated).

   - Action Implicit Buttons: May now start with Lisp special forms like
   'progn' and 'or'.

   - Longer Button Labels: The default max length of a Hyperbole button
   label has been increased from 100 to 200 characters.  The variable
   hbut:max-len controls this.  If you locally set this to 0 in any
   new button type definition, then for that type of button, there
   will be no maximum limit.  Since Action Implicit Buttons can be
   a series of Lisp calls, they are now unlimited in length.

   *                                   V7.1.0


   - In-buffer Labels: Fixed a number of in-buffer text handling issues with
   the creation of explicit buttons, maximizing reuse of existing text in

   - link-to-file Action Type: Extended to allow file path to include either
   :line-num:column-num or just :line-num at the end (translated to character
   location within the button).


   - Bookmark Mode: Added Hyperbole Manual section, "Smart Key - Bookmark Mode"
   that allows linking to Emacs Bookmarks.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key -
   Bookmark Mode".


   - Activate Any Labeled Buffer Button: Hyperbole's top-level menu 'Act'
   command either activates any button at point or prompts for the choice of
   any labeled explicit or implicit button within the buffer to activate.
   The pulldown menu item, Activate-Button-in-Buffer, behaves the same.

   - Org-mode in Q&A Appendix: Rewrote this section to account for improved

   *                                   V7.0.9

   Many issues were resolved in this test version as documented in "Changes".
   Only new features are documented here.

   ACE WINDOW PACKAGE INTEGRATION - fast window and buffer switching

   - After installing the ace-window package and loading Hyperbole, execute
   (hkey-ace-window-setup "\M-o") to enable the following capabilities:

   - Region Throws: The hkey-throw command bound to {M-o t} now throws the
   active (highlighted) region, if any, into the target window's buffer,
   rather than replacing its buffer with the source window buffer.  If
   you don't use region highlighting, i.e. transient-mark-mode, then use
   {C-u M-o t} for the same effect.  The buffer in the target window
   must differ from the one in the source window.  With no region
   active, this command still throws the source buffer to the target
   window.  See "DEMO#Displaying Items via Drags and Moving Buffers".


   - Modeline Drag Window Resizing: Smart Key window resizing now provides
   live feedback during the drag.

   - Bottommost Modeline Frame Moving: After adding a 'drag-with-mode-line'
   frame parameter with a value of t, a drag of any of its bottommost
   modelines with either Smart Mouse Key repositions the frame on screen.
   See "(hyperbole)Moving Frames" for information on how to configure this


   - hproperty:flash-face: Face used when flashing a button; now customizable.

   - hproperty:highlight-face: Face used to highlight a line; now customizable.

   - inhibit-hsys-org: See ORG MODE section below.


   - Hlink Definitions: Added Action Button, Elink, Ilink, Glink definitions.


   - Windows Grid by File Pattern: {C--1 C-c @} prompts for a glob-type file
   pattern, finds all the matching files and then displays them in an auto-sized
   windows grid based on the number of files.

   - Autosize Windows Grid of Marked Items: When in a Dired, Buffer Menu or IBuffer
   buffer and items are marked, {@} will display them in an auto-sized window grid
   rather than prompting for a size.

   - Buffer/Window Swapping: Improved {~} so current buffer remains the same but
   the selected window changes.  Also made frame buffer swapping work anytime
   there are two or more frames regardless of how many windows in each.  See
   "DEMO#Swapping Buffers".

   - HyControl Now Accepts Negative Prefix Args: If the minus key is pressed when
   HyControl is invoked or after any other prefix arg command, it will invert the
   current prefix arg value (or when zero, set the prefix arg to -1).


   - Hyrolo Add: Fixed new entry addition to add in sorted order and make logic
   operators perform properly, after a bug in level calculation had been


   - Double Quoting Key Series: Key series delimited by {} may now be in double
   quotes, e.g. "{C-x o}".

   - Windows to Posix Paths: Much improved conversion of MSWindows UNC paths to
   existing Posix mount points when running Emacs under Windows Subsystem for
   Linux.  See

   - Flashing Implicit Buttons: More types of implicit buttons now flash when

   - Improved Grep Output Parsing: Recognizes file names with spaces followed by
   the null (^@, ASCII 0) character.

   - Texinfo @-Quoted Path Variables: Hyperbole now can resolve paths as
   complicated as this: @file{$@{hyperb:dir@}/DEMO#POSIX and MSWindows Paths}
   in Texinfo files if the Action Key is pressed on the / or after, i.e. after
   the variable name.


   - Deleted C-c C-r Global Binding: Removed {C-c C-r} key binding for explicit
   button renaming due to conflicts with some major modes


   - Implicit Button Support: Org-mode's local binding of {M-RET} by default
   now activates Hyperbole implicit buttons when within them.

   - inhibit-hsys-org: New customization that when set non-nil disables
   all Smart Key support in any Org major or minor mode.

   - hsys-org-hbut-activate-p: Added to org-metareturn-hook so local binding
   of {M-RET} in org-mode activates Hyperbole buttons when point is over
   them. (It doesn't run the full set of Action Key actions).


   - Auto Imenu Reindexing: If using Emacs imenu package, the Action Key
   will look up in-buffer identifier references with imenu.  If imenu's
   index is rendered invalid due to large changes in a buffer, Hyperbole
   will now automatically rebuild the index to have correct pointers.
   (Does not require use of the imenu-auto-rescan setting.

   - hypb:mark-object: Gives Hyperbole-specific strings and symbols
   a hyperbole property that distinguishes them from other objects.

   - hypb:object-p: Tests whether has the hyperbole property.  This is useful
   in hpath:relative-to and hpath:absolute-to where any string with a
   hyperbole property is ignored as a potential path.  For example, this
   prevents removal of trailing whitespace from normalized key series.

   - hbut:act: Hyperbole button parameter is now optional and defaults to
   the located button, the symbol, 'hbut:current.

   - ibtypes tag lookup: Implicit button type names such as ibtypes::grep-msg
   are now properly found in tags tables using their defib names
   (e.g. grep-msg).

   - hmouse-drag-p: tests whether absolute Smart Mouse Key depress and
   release positions differ (relative to display/screen coordinates).

   - hycontrol-quit: Unified the two Hycontrol mode quit commands into this one.
   hycontrol-abort: Renamed from hycontrol-abort-mode.

   - hyperb:autoloads-exist-p
   hyperb:generate-autoloads: Added and called from hyperb:init when
   initializing Hyperbole to generate auto-autoload files when
   running from a non-packaged source download of Hyperbole.

   *                                   V7.0.8


   - Action Buttons: A new, universal syntax for creating implicit buttons
   that execute any existing action types or Elisp functions.  Such
   buttons are delimited by angle brackets, < >, and come in three types:
   action type invocations, function calls and variable displays.  See
   "(hyperbole)Action Buttons" for examples and details on this exciting
   new capability.

   - Labeled Implicit Buttons: Optional <[labels]> that precede implicit
   buttons.  This enables implicit buttons to be activated by name when
   in the current buffer or anywhere when added to the global buttons
   file (personal button file).

   - Link to Buttons: New implicit button types that link to buttons based
   on their categories and labels:

   In Buffer Syntax                                       Implicit Button Type

   - Other New Implicit Button Types:
   debugger-source: Jump to the source of errors from the Python pytype package
   ipython-stack-frame: Jump to the source of ipython stack traces and exceptions

   - Other New Action Types:
   link-to-bookmark: Display an Emacs bookmark

   - Much Faster Implicit Buttons: Major speedup in implicit button identification
   and activation even with the new generalized Action implicit button type
   syntax, due to internal optimizations.

   - Pathname Flashing: Pathname implicit buttons now flash when activated.

   - Pathname References: Pathname implicit buttons may contain both link anchors
   and line and column numbers.  Format is:

   - Shell Script Link Anchors: Link anchors now work for shell script editing modes
   as well using comment lines as the anchors, e.g. "myscript.sh#Env Variables".

   - Dir Variable Separators: Variables in paths no longer require a trailing directory
   separator.  Both of these are live Hyperbole paths:
   "${hyperb:dir}DEMO#Smart Mouse Keys"
   "${hyperb:dir}/DEMO#Smart Mouse Keys"

   - Jump Thing: Added xml-mode support for pressing the Action Key when on a start or
   end tag pair to select the whole region between them.  {C-c .} also moves between
   the start and matching end tag.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key Thing Selection".


   - DEMO: New sections on Button Files and Global Buttons.

   - Action Types: link-to-gbut, link-to-ibut - Added.

   - hpath:native-image-suffixes: documented this setting for controlling
   image types that Hyperbole displays within Emacs.

   - Implicit Button Types: Split off type descriptions to this new
   subsection and added these types: ripgrep-msg, ipython-stack-frame,
   ilink (link to implicit button), glink (link to global button), and
   elink (link to explicit button).

   - DEMO (Action Buttons): Added description and examples.

   - Path Variables: Better documented how these are handled.

   - Hyperbole Manual, DEMO (Implicit Buttons): Added description and
   example of implicit button labels.

   - Glossary: Updated Implicit Button and Global Button entries with

   - Installation: All new manual section on multiple ways to install Hyperbole.


   - When 'c' (clip to lines per cell) is omitted from a viewspec, clipping
   now changes to whatever the default number of lines per cell is
   (typically, unlimited).  The same goes for the 'l' spec (limit display
   to a certain level of cells).


   - Pulldown Menus:   Implicit-Button/Label: Added to add a label.
   Implicit-Button/Rename - Added to rename the label
   of an implicit button.

   - Minibuffer Menus: hui-mini.el (hui:menus): Added Ibut/Label and


   - Radio Targets and Links: Smart Keys now handle these.

   - Links: Smart Keys handle both internal and external Org mode links.


   - ibut:at-type-p: Added to test if point is on a specific type of
   implicit button.

   - hbut:key, ebut:key, ibut:key, hbut:rename, hui:hbut-rename,
   hui:hbut-operate: Added to allow renaming of any type of labeled
   Hyperbole button.

   - hypb:region-with-text-property-value: Added and used in hysy-org.el.

   - hsys-org-mode-function, hsys-org-mode-p: Added to determine when
   hsys-org actions are activated.

   - ebut:key-src-set-buffer, hbut:key-src-set-buffer, hbut:key-list,
   hbut:ebut-key-list, hbut:ibut-key-list, hbut:label-list): Added
   to allow selection of labeled Hyperbole buttons in current buffer by

   - gbut:get, hbut:map, ibut:label-map, ibut:key-src, ibut:key-to-label,
   ibut:label-to-key, hui:ebut-act, ibut:summarize, ibut:label-start,
   ibut:label-end, ibut:label-p, ibut:get, hui:ibut-label-create,
   hui:ibut-rename, hui:ibut-message, ibut:alist, ibut:list, ibut:map,
   ibut:next-occurrence, ibut:label-regexp, gbut:ibut-key-list, ebut:to,
   gbut:to, ibut:to, ibut:label-separator, hbut:label-regexp,
   ibut:rename, hbut:get: Added to support implicit button labels and
   links to buttons.
   hbut:label-p: Updated to handle implicit button labels.
   ibut:label-separator-regexp, hbut:outside-comment-p: Added.

   - elink, elink:start, elink:end: Added for in-buffer links to explicit buttons.
   glink, glink:start, glink:end: Added for in-buffer links to global buttons.
   ilink, ilink:start, ilink:end: Added for in-buffer links to implicit buttons.

   - hsys-org-set-ibut-label: Added and used in org-mode ibtype.
   org-mode, hsys-org-at-block-start-p: Added Action Key activation of
   Org blocks when on 1st line of def.


   - Emacs Bookmark Menu Mode: Jump to the bookmark at point.

   - hpath:find-program: Changed to prioritize hpath:native-image-suffixes
   over hpath:internal-display-alist over hpath:external-display-alist-macos
   instead of the reverse.  This prevents external viewers from being
   used when internal viewers are also in effect.

   *                                   V7.0.3

   ACE WINDOW PACKAGE INTEGRATION - fast window and buffer switching

   - After installing the ace-window package and loading Hyperbole, execute
   (hkey-ace-window-setup "\M-o") to enable the following capabilities:

   - Selected Window Buffer Replace: Added the ability to 'replace' the
   selected window's buffer with the buffer of another window.  Use
   {M-o r }.  To swap the buffers between the same two windows,
   use {M-o m .  See "(hyperbole)Keyboard Drags" for setup and
   use instructions.

   - New Frame Commands: Any of these M-o commands that involve two windows
   can use a new frame as the target window by using a  of 'z'.
   So, {M-o t z} throws the current buffer to a new frame with a single
   window displaying that buffer.  The new frame will be the same size as
   the prior frame to match the behavior of HyControl.

   - Integrated Ace Window commands with Smart Key Drags and added commands
   for use with the mouse that select Ace Window source and target windows
   by clicking with the mouse: hmouse-click-to-drag,
   hmouse-click-to-drag-stay, hmouse-click-to-drag-to,
   hmouse-click-to-replace, hmouse-click-to-swap, hmouse-click-to-throw.

   - {M-o i } is now for use only when on a listing item such as
   in Dired or Buffer Menu.  It no longer creates Hyperbole buttons in
   non-item areas to avoid confusion.  Now it will just trigger an error
   if not on a listing item.


   - MSWindows Paths: Hyperbole now recognizes typical MSWindows paths (both
   local and remote shares) and can convert an in-buffer path between POSIX
   and MSWindows formats multiple times, even paths involving mount points.
   See "DEMO#POSIX and MSWindows Paths".

   MSWindows paths may be used within links and implicit path
   buttons just like POSIX paths, whether running Emacs under a POSIX
   system or MSWindows.  If under POSIX, a remote MSWindows path must be
   accessed through a mount point to the network share.  Hyperbole caches
   such mount points when it is loaded.  Use {M-x
   hpath:cache-mswindows-mount-points RET} to update them if more mounts
   are made later.  See also the NEW COMMANDS section herein for how to
   convert a path between POSIX and MSWindows formats.

   - GitLab and Github Links: Added Gitlab implicit links with equivalent
   functionality to those of Github.  Added "people" reference support to
   list people who are part of a formal organization as well as a "staff"
   alias.  Added "contributors" reference support to list project
   contributors as well.  Improved Github implicit issue links: gh#gh-34
   and gh#issue/34 now properly reference an issue in the current project.

   - Ripgrep: Added new ripgrep-msg implicit button type which jumps
   to the source referenced by ripgrep (rg) output.  By default,
   ripgrep outputs pathnames only once before all matching lines
   within that path.  Ripgrep may also be used with the Hyperbole
   `hypb:rgrep' command by setting 'hypb:rgrep-command'.  See

   - Markdown Mode: Smart Keys now support Markdown internal file link
   references and navigation.

   - Org Mode: When in an *Org Help* buffer, the Smart Keys now defer to
   org-mode to handle jumps to its own locations for compatibility.
   Similarly, in org-mode buffers when not on an Org link or heading,
   and the {M-RET} Action Key is pressed, Hyperbole defers to Org's
   org-meta-return command.  Hyperbole bindings of {C-c RET}, {C-c .}
   and {C-c @} also defer to org-mode.

   - Drag-based Kill, Copy and Yank: Added support for dragging across

   - Python Identifiers: If a Jedi server is running and the Action Key is
   pressed on a Python identifier, Hyperbole will use Jedi to find the
   definition even within nested module references, e.g. a.b.c.  Also
   improved basic identifier definition finding.

   - Company Mode Completion: Support for the Emacs company-mode completion
   package.  An Action Key press on a company-mode completion item will
   display the definition of that item and an Assist Key press will
   display its documentation, if any.

   - Treemacs Mode: Now supports standard Hyperbole end-of-line proportional

   - ChangeLog Mode: Smart Keys now work on Emacs Lisp references in

   - Improved String Matching: For lines that begin with part of a string
   that started on another line, Hyperbole now presumes that point is
   within a string rather than between two strings, even though the
   delimiters on the line make this ambiguous.  This provides more
   accurate string recognition.

   - Improved Path Matching: For quote delimited paths, other quote marks
   are excluded from matches, so if checking for a doubly quoted path,
   single quotes are not allowed in the string.


   - Help Buffer Quitting: If HyControl is active, normally {q} quits
   it, but now if point is in an Emacs help buffer, {q} will quit
   from the help buffer instead.  Use {Q} to quit from HyControl


   - Buffer Sliding:  Four new commands are available that can be
   bound to things like control arrow keys: hkey-buffer-move-left,
   hkey-buffer-move-right, hkey-buffer-move-down and
   hkey-buffer-move-up.  Each one slides the current buffer one
   window in the direction specified and all other buffers slide
   around to match.

   - MSWindows and POSIX Path Toggling: In "hpath.el", added
   (hpath:substitute-posix-or-mswindows-at-point) and
   (hpath:substitute-posix-or-mswindows) commands to toggle the
   format of a path at point or in a string between POSIX and
   MSWindows styles.


   - Added hypb:map-plist, equivalent to mapcar but maps over
   key-value pairs in property lists (where the key and value are
   individual elements in the list).

   - In "hui-select.el", added functions to return info. on the
   context-sensitive region that this library selects.
   (hui-select-get-region) returns the region that would be
   selected at point and (hui-select-get-region-boundaries)
   returns a cons of the start and end position of the same region.

   - In "hpath.el (hpath:delimited-possible-path), added optional
   include-positions parameter which if non-nil, adds start and end
   positions to returned value.

   - In "hversion.el", added (hyperb:wsl-os-p) flag to test whether
   Emacs is running under Microsoft Windows Subsystem for Linux (WSL)
   since the system-type variable does not reflect this.


   - Popup Menus: Documented how to invoke the Koutliner and
   HyRolo popup menus in Emacs.  See "(hyperbole)Menu Commands".

   - DEMO: Added sections:
   "DEMO#Gitlab (Remote) References"
   "DEMO#POSIX and MSWindows Paths"

   - Updated Hyperbole Manual with new features.

   *                                   V7.0.2


   - Item Throws: Added the ability to 'throw' an item or a buffer to
   a window while leaving the selected window the same.  Use {M-o t
   }.  This works in Dired, Buffer Menu, iBuffer Menu and
   Treemacs modes and lets you throw multiple items to multiple windows
   quickly.  See "(hyperbole)Keyboard Drags" for setup and use

   *                                   V7.0.1


   - Keyboard Drags: Keyboard emulation of many Smart Mouse Key drag actions.
   See "(hyperbole)Keyboard Drags".

   - Keyboard Help: When {M-o} is bound to the `hkey-operate' command to
   emulate drag depress and release events; when in the release window
   prior to pressing the second {M-o}, {C-h A} now reports the drag
   action associated with the current release point.  See "(hyperbole)C-h A".

   - Smart Treemacs: Smart Key and item drag support for the Treemacs package.
   See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Treemacs".

   - Ace Window: Integrated Hyperbole item drag and link creation with this
   package's direct window selection.  Use {M-o i }.
   You typically can display any Dired or Buffer Menu item in any window
   with a single 3 keystroke command!  See "(hyperbole)Keyboard Drags"
   for setup and use instructions.


   - Fixed Google Contacts support to prompt only once for authorization.

   *                                   V7.0.0

   (See the "Changes" file for even more details of changes).


   - Git References: New implicit button and action type with a compact syntax
   that displays many types of git entities, e.g. git#commit/55a1f0.  Such
   references work across all git repositories on your local disks.

   See "DEMO#Git (Local) References" or the commentary at the top of the
   "hib-social.el" file for extensive examples of these references.  {C-h
   f git-reference RET} explains its syntax.

   - Github References: New implicit button and action type with a compact
   syntax that displays many types of github entities,
   e.g. gh#emacs-helm/helm/1878, displays issue #1878 for user emacs-helm
   and project helm.  See "DEMO#Github (Remote) References" or the
   commentary at the top of the "hib-social.el" file for extensive
   examples of these references.  {C-h f github-reference RET} explains
   its syntax.

   - Extensive new support for cross-window and cross-frame drags of the
   Action and Assist Mouse Keys.  See "DEMO#Smart Mouse Keys" and the Info
   manual section, "(hyperbole)Smart Mouse Key Drags" for details.  These
   actions allow for rapid display of buffers, windows and frames wherever
   you like.

   Major new features include:

   * Dragging items from Dired or the Buffer Menu for display in existing
   or new windows and frames.  Action Key drag from the first line (or
   header line) to another window to move the listing buffer itself.
   Visual pulsing of source and destination to highlight the transfer
   taking place (hmouse-pulse-flag controls this).  A following click on
   an item displays it in the source window, replacing the Dired or
   Buffer Menu listing.

   * Dragging from a buffer or an item to a modeline splits the window of
   the modeline and displays the buffer/item dragged in the leftmost
   or uppermost of the split windows.

   * Cloning or moving an Emacs window to a similarly sized new frame or
   another existing frame.

   * Displaying a buffer in specific other windows.

   * With Emacs 26 on macOS, Hyperbole detects the window of any drag
   release or whether the release was outside of Emacs, e.g. in another
   application whose window is atop an Emacs frame (uses a Python script
   included with Hyperbole, so Python must be available or this will do

   The hmouse-verify-release-window-flag (default is t) controls whether
   checking for non-Emacs areas on macOS is done or not, as this slows
   Smart Key action handling at least 1/3 of a second in a number of cases.

   - {}-delimited Key Sequence Implicit Buttons have been greatly expanded.
   An Action Key press on any of the following execute the associated commands:
   {M-x occur RET}                 - M-x extended commands
   {M-x apropos RET hyperbole RET} - commands with arguments
   {C-x 2 C-x 3}                   - sequences of commands
   {ESC: (+ 2 3) RET}              - lisp expressions

   - Pathname Environment Variables: Implicit Buttons may contain environment
   variables such as "${PATH}/python" and Hyperbole resolves them to the
   first matching directory when activated.

   - Compressed Elisp: Quoted, compressed Emacs Lisp source file names without
   any path now work as implicit buttons that display the source file, with
   or without the compressed file suffix, e.g. "subr.el" or "subr.el.gz".

   - Prefixed URLs: Partial URLs with prefixes such as, url:photos.google.com
   or url=calendar.google.com, can now be displayed with Action Key presses
   even though they lack a www site name or an http protocol prefix.

   - Link to File: When modifying an explicit file link button, a variable in
   a pathname is maintained as is any prior in-file location when prompting
   for changes.

   - Yanking Explicit Buttons: When copying or moving explicit buttons, they
   are now re-highlighted when yanked into a new position.

   - EWW Support: Added Action and Assist Key support for browsing links in
   eww (the Emacs web browser) and for activating history links in the eww
   history buffer.

   - Open Office Documents: An Action Key press on an Open Office pathname
   displays it in Open Office.  See hpath:external-open-office-suffixes for
   file suffixes supported.

   - macOS Apps: An Action Key press on a pathname that ends in ".app" on a
   macOS system will run the app externally (previously it would have been
   browsed as a directory).

   - File Page Browsing: Dynamic table-of-contents-type browsing for files
   separated into pages with form-feed (Control-L) page separators.  Use
   {M-x pages-directory RET} to generate the listing of pages and then press
   the Action Key on any entry to jump to it.

   - Explicit Buttons in Comments: Explicit buttons in programming languages
   are now matched only within comments to avoid language syntax that looks
   like the delimiters of an explicit button, e.g. in Rust.

   - New hproperty:but-highlight-flag: This controls whether Hyperbole
   explicit buttons are highlighted with a special colored face or not.  By
   default, they are.

   - Python Backtraces: Action Key presses jump to the associated source

   - Python Symbols: Action Key presses now look these up in any buffer whose
   name includes Pydoc: or Python, mainly help buffers.

   - Compressed File Grep: {C-h h f g} now uses zgrep when available to
   handle compressed source files.

   - Grep -A Support: The grep -A option produces context lines around any
   matched lines but uses a different syntax for separating line numbers at
   the beginning of lines.  The Action Key now supports jumping to the
   source of any such lines.

   - Dired Quit: An Action Key press at the end of the first line in a Dired
   buffer now quits and executes requested actions, just as presses at the
   end of the buffer do.

   - Image Thumbnail Browsing: See the Info manual section,
   "(emacs)Image-Dired", for how to create a buffer of image thumbnails.
   Once created, the Action Key displays a scaled version of the original
   image in an Emacs window.  The Assist Key displays the original image in
   an external viewer.

   - Emacs Push-buttons: An Assist Key press on an Emacs push-button previously
   displayed its keyboard-action help string but not its mouse-action help
   string.  Now it displays the mouse-action when appropriate.

   - Texinfo References: An Action Key press on an Emacs Lisp @findex
   (function) or @vindex (variable) entry displays the documentation for
   that entry.

   - Debbugs Issues: Eliminated match of #id-number as a bug reference; 'bug'
   or similar prefix is now required so there is no ambiguity with social
   references including 'git #commit-number'.


   - Smart Key Hooks: New hooks run before and after Smart Key depress and
   release events: action-key-depress-hook, action-key-release-hook,
   assist-key-depress-hook and assist-key-release-hook.


   - FAST-DEMO: New, simplified introductory demo to Hyperbole focused on
   implicit buttons.  Includes links to Hyperbole videos and the prior
   "DEMO".  {C-h h d d} display "FAST-DEMO" and {C-u C-h h d d} displays
   the prior "DEMO".

   - Why Use Hyperbole: "HY-WHY.kotl" lists use cases for Hyperbole with
   hyperlinks to associated "DEMO" sections for each.  View this via
   the minibuffer menu with {C-h h d w} or via the `Why-Use?' Hyperbole
   menubar menu entry.

   - Hyperbole HTML Manual: The HTML version of the Hyperbole Manual now uses
   the same css stylesheet as used for the Hyperbole Home page, making
   it look much better and easier to navigate.

   - Drags: Updated Hyperbole Manual with all new Smart Mouse Key drag actions.

   - Smart Key Help: Improved help documentation for Smart Keys when they
   contain multiple clauses connected with 'or' logic, e.g. do 'a' or 'b'
   or 'c'.

   - New Hyperbole Manual Sections:
   * Referent Display - setting of where link referents are displayed
   * Smart Mouse Key Drags
   * Smart Mouse Drags outside a Window
   * Smart Key - Image Thumbnails
   * Future Work - Direct Manipulation

   - Git References: In the Implicit Buttons section of the Hyperbole Manual,
   added documentation for git-reference, git-commit-reference and

   - Toggle Key Bindings: In the Smart Key Bindings section of the Hyperbole
   Manual, explained hyperbole-toggle-bindings (toggles keyboard and mouse
   keys) rather than hmouse-toggle-bindings (toggles only mouse keys).
   Moved the latter to the Global Key Bindings appendix.

   - Other Hyperbole Manual Section Changes:
   * Button Colors: Added doc on hproperty:but-highlight-flag.
   * Glossary: Added Windows Grid entry.
   * Hook Variables: Added doc of: action-key-depress-hook,
   action-key-release-hook, assist-key-depress-hook
   and assist-key-release-hook.
   * HyControl: Added Google Contacts use and additional Concept Index entries.
   * Koutliner: Centralized all key binding index entries under "koutliner, ".
   * Manual Overview: Improved pointer to DEMO.
   * Smart Key - WWW URLs: Added browse-url-browser-function and Cust/URL-Display reference.
   * Using URLs with Find-File: Added URL browser customization menu reference and image.

   - New DEMO File Sections:
   * Table of Contents Browsing
   * Dragging Buffers, Windows and Items
   * HyControl Frame Commands and Windows Grid subsections
   * HyRolo
   * Running Dired on the Current Directory


   - HyControl Minor Modes: HyControl is now two minor modes, one for frames
   and one for windows.  It uses standard key bindings and standard Emacs
   event processing instead of its own event loop, so any keys not bound in
   a HyControl mode now work normally.  HyControl Windows Mode displays
   HyWin in the modeline and HyControl Frames Mode displays HyFrm while
   active.  Both modes invert the modeline colors so you don't forget you
   are in a special mode.

   - {@} is an incredible new key binding and command that creates a grid of
   windows within a frame by splitting the frame into a number of equally
   sized windows specified by a number of rows and columns (typically as
   prefix arg digits).  Each window shows a different buffer, if possible,
   with a prefix arg of 0 prompting for a major mode and first displaying
   buffers of that mode.

   The same {@} command works in Dired, Buffer Menu and IBuffer modes and
   first displays any items marked for display in the windows grid,
   i.e. marked with the {m} command.

   Hyperbole also supplies the global key binding {C-c @} so this command
   can be used at any time.

   The variable, hycontrol-display-buffer-predicate-list, determines which
   buffers are first displayed in the grid except when filtering by major
   mode or by items marked in a listing buffer.

   {M-x hycontrol-windows-grid-repeatedly RET} allows rapid visual testing
   of different grid layouts or filters as it prompts you for a grid size,
   displays it and then prompts you again until your press RET without
   giving a size.

   See "Demo#Windows Grid" for example use.

   - {a} adjusts the selected frame width by cycling through a list of common
   fixed percentages such as 25% and 50% (given by the variable,

   {A} does the same for the selected frame's height, using

   - {f} now clones a window to a new frame without deleting the source window
   {F} moves a window to a new frame and deletes the the source window

   - {i}, {j}, {k}, {m} first expand the selected frame to an edge based on
   their respective positions on a U.S. keyboard, e.g. {i} expands the
   frame to the top edge; with further invocations, they keep the frame at
   that edge but cut its perpendicular dimension in half (or to any
   percentage specified as an argument), leaving the particular edge fixed.
   This allows both rapid expansion and contraction of frames with just 4
   keys whenever needed.

   It is easiest to understand by simply trying the keys. See "Demo#Frame
   Commands" for example use.

   - {c} for frame edge location cycling now is available in HyControl
   Windows mode.

   - {p } displays a virtual numeric keypad and moves the selected frame
   to the screen edge position based on the numeric keypad layout, e.g. 3
   moves it to the southeast corner of the screen.  This is for keyboards
   that do not have a physical numeric keypad.  Before a number is
   selected, {C-g} or {q} will exit and return to the top-level of the
   active HyControl mode.

   - {-} in HyControl Windows mode minimizes a window size while trying to
   display its entire buffer.  Now it will resize the window to 1 line if
   it cannot display all lines or if all lines are already displayed.

   - Minibuffer Help: Improved help strings shown in the minibuffer while
   HyControl is active.  Added {?} key which toggles this display on and

   - ESC: Removed this as a quit key since now that regular key sequences are
   supported, this is often used as a meta key prefix.  Use {q} to quit.

   - Minibuffer Prompts: Automatically quit from any HyControl mode whenever
   a minibuffer prompt becomes active so that arguments may be typed
   normally.  Examples include use of {M-:} for Lisp expression evaluation
   and M-x for entering commands by name.


   - Google Contacts: New support for searching your Google Contacts with the
   HyRolo Contact Manager; for advanced users only.  Requires use of the
   Emacs google-contacts package and the non-Emacs gpg public key package
   to support Google services authorization.  Once configured, these
   contacts are automatically searched together with local HyRolo files any
   time a contact search is performed.  See the Google Contacts part in
   "(hyperbole)HyRolo Settings".

   - Dynamic HyRolo List: The HyRolo list of files to search is now computed
   dynamically so you can enable Big Brother Database (BBDB) or Google
   Contacts support after HyRolo is initialized and these contacts will also
   be searched.


   - Unshifted Mouse Keys: By default, Hyperbole mouse keys are Shift-Middle
   (Action Key) and Shift-Right (Assist Key).  For frequent mouse users,
   there is now {M-x hmouse-add-unshifted-smart-keys RET} which
   additionally makes the Middle mouse key the Action Key and the Right
   mouse key the Assist Key, replacing their default Emacs functions.  {M-x
   hmouse-toggle-bindings RET} will toggle between the Emacs and Hyperbole
   mouse bindings.

   - Smart Key Reload: If you ever edit any of the Smart Key contexts or
   actions in "hui-mouse.el", "hui-window.el", "hibtypes.el" or
   "hactypes.el" and re-byte-compile those files, then you may reload your
   new settings with {M-x hmouse-update-smart-keys RET}.  No need to reload
   or restart Hyperbole.

   - Jump Thing: Added Jump Thing key binding entry to Hyperbole menus.  This
   key jumps between the start and end of a matching delimiter or tag pair.

   - Mod Mouse Keys: Disallowed this feature meant to enable one hand on the
   keyboard while the other hand pressed the mouse keys as Control and Meta
   modifier keys.  Use would conflict with Emacs bindings of Control and
   Meta mouse keys.


   - `e' Viewspec: Removed ellipses viewspec because ellipses can no longer
   be turned off with modern Emacs outlining.


   - Prefix Arguments: Prefix arguments may now be given to any Hyperbole
   menu command that accepts them.

   - Action Doc Strings: If a menu item has no help string but its action is
   a function with a doc string, then that doc string will be used to
   display help for the menu item.

   - Key Bindings: The pulldown menu, Hyperbole/Options/Change-Key-Bindings
   now displays the current keys bound to each command for easy reference.

   *				    V6.0.2


   - pathname Implicit Button Type: generalized to handle hash-style links to
   HTML files, to Github Markdown # sections and to Emacs outline *
   sections.  So an Action Key press on any of the following links displays
   the link referent:
   "DEMO#HTML Markdown and Emacs Outline Hash Links"
   Even links split across 2 lines like this now work: "DEMO#Social Media
   Hashtags and Usernames", as long as point is on the first line.

   Within HTML and Markdown files, in-file hash links without any file name
   prefix work as well.

   HTML hash-links are case-sensitive; other hash-links are not.  Hash links
   typically use dashes in place of the spaces that referents may contain,
   but if the link is enclosed in quotes, Hyperbole allows spaces to be used
   as well.  In fact, it is best practice to always enclose hash-style links
   in quotes so Hyperbole can distinguish them from other similar looking
   constructs, such as social media hashtags (see "(hyperbole)Social Media").

   Pathnames surrounded by literal non-ASCII quote marks now work as well.
   For example, ‘http://ftp.gnu.org/gnu/hyperbole/’.

   - New Implicit Button Type, markdown-internal-link, displays any in-file
   Markdown link referent, aside from pathnames and urls.  Together with
   other types, all Markdown links can now be followed by the Action Key.

   - social-reference Implicit Button Type: Disabled this type within quoted
   strings (all modes) and within parentheses (markdown-mode), so in-file
   hash link references are not matched as social hash tags.  Made the list
   of modes a variable, hibtypes-social-inhibit-modes.

   - New link-to-web-search Action Type: Allows global and explicit buttons
   to link to specific web term searches from `hyperbole-web-search-alist'.

   - org-mode Implicit Button Type: Improved to invoke org-meta-return when
   not on an Org link or outline heading.


   - Added pointer to HyControl video and {C-c \} binding which invokes
   HyControl window control.

   - README.md File: New Org-mode user testimonial.

   - DEMO File: Added description and exercise using the new Find/Web menu.

   - Added README.md.html introduction with images combining README, INSTALL
   and HY-ABOUT information.

   - Full set of hand-written changes are now in the file "Changes".  The
   former name, ChangeLog, is now auto-generated from the version controlled
   'git log' but not as complete.


   - New variables, action-key-eol-function and assist-key-eol-function, used
   to control what the Action and Assist Keys do at the end of a line.
   Default behaviors remain as before but now one can set these to do
   something other than scrolling, if desired.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key -
   Smart Scrolling"

   - When in HyControl, pressing {ESC} now quits in addition to {q}.


   - New submenu, Find/Web, for quick access to major web search engines.
   The Find/Web menu looks like this:
   Web> Amazon Bing Dictionary Elisp Facebook Google Hub(git) Images Maps RFCs StackOverflow Twitter Wikipedia Youtube

   Hyperbole binds the key {C-c /} for quick access to this menu, if it is
   not already bound prior to Hyperbole's initialization. The
   Cust/Web-Search menu, {C-h h c w}, sets the option,
   hyperbole-web-search-browser-function, which determines whether web
   search results are displayed within Emacs or with an external web
   browser.  A short video introduction to the Find/Web menu may be found at

   Advanced users can change the search engines listed in the Find/Web menu
   with M-x customize-variable RET hyperbole-web-search-alist RET.  Changes
   are automatically reflected in the Hyperbole menus once applied.
   Remember each search engine name must begin with a unique letter and each
   URL must have a %s format field indicating where to place the web search
   term when a search is performed.  See "(hyperbole)Web Search Engines".

   *				    V6.0.1

   NOTE: Version 6.0.1 is the first public release by the author since version
   4.18.  All version 5 releases were test releases, so all V5 and V6 features
   are new in 2016 and you should look through them all.


   - New Implicit Button Type, social-reference: for social media hashtag or
   username references, social-reference.  Action key activation
   displays the web page associated with the hashtag or username.
   References can look like #hashtag or @username for Twitter
   references.  fb#hashtag or facebook@username for Facebook references
   or in#hashtag or instagram@username for Instagram references.  See
   the new file "hib-social.el" for more information.


   - The introductory parts of the manual have been improved and the flow
   from section to section is better.  Added menu key sequences to
   "(hyperbole)Suggestion or Bug Reporting".  Expanded and added
   instructions on using the customize interface to change the functions
   run by Smart Key modeline clicks.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key Modeline".


   - hsettings.el is now included in the Hyperbole package rather than
   generated (formerly called hsite.el).  Use the Hyperbole customization
   variables to change anything in there rather than editing the file
   manually as before.

   *				    V6.0.0


   - The Hyperbole contact manager has been renamed to HyRolo and all of its
   identifiers now begin with hyrolo-.  If you had a custom value of
   `rolo-file-list' in your ~/.emacs file, you should rename it to


   - Removed the {RET} key bindings of the Action Key in read-only modes since
   it was not consistent across all modes and probably was little used.  It
   also could interfere with mode-specific usage of this key.  Just use the
   standard Action Key bindings.


   - Implicit mail address buttons are recognized in many more programming
   modes.  See the value of `hypb:mail-address-mode-list'.


   - Hyperbole is now integrated with the Emacs option customization system,
   allowing for interactive editing and permanent setting of many Hyperbole
   options.  Use {M-x customize-browse RET} and find the Hyperbole group
   under Applications.  Hyperbole's options are divided into logical
   subgroups such as Rolo and Koutliner.  See "(emacs)Easy Customization"
   for details on the customization system and "(hyperbole)Customization"
   for Hyperbole specifics.

   - Renamed any Hyperbole hook variables that had a colon in their names
   to use a hyphen instead.


   - Similarly, the commands from the Win/ menu from Wconfig have been
   renamed to begin with hywconfig- and the library is now called

   *				    V5.15


   - New Implicit Button Type, debbugs-gnu-mode: When on a GNU Debbugs listing
   entry in debbugs-gnu-mode, an Action Key press displays the discussion of
   the selected issue; an Assist Key press pretty prints the status of the
   issue to a window below the listing window.  This augments the
   debbugs-gnu-query implicit button type from V5.14 which recognizes
   bug/issue ids and queries in any buffer.

   - Initial Org Mode Support: The new implicit button type, org-mode, follows
   Org mode hyperlinks and cycles display views of Org mode outline headings.
   When on a heading, the Action Key cycles the view of the subtree at point
   and the Assist Key cycles the view of all headings in the buffer.

   Suggest other good ideas for Smart Key actions on Org entities and we'll
   likely implement them.

   - Links to Info Manual Index Items: You can now drag between windows with
   the Action Mouse Key depressed to an Info Manual index menu entry to
   create an explicit button link to it (or use {C-h h e c} with an action
   type of link-to-Info-index-item).  Then the button will always take you
   to the line in the manual referenced by that index item.  This also works
   with other Info menu items and cross-references.  Implicit buttons that
   reference index items work too, like "(hyperbole)C-c C-m"!  And when you
   are creating the link, full completion of the file name (within
   parentheses) and the index item name is provided; just type ? to list
   completions after typing a few characters.  Since Emacs and most GNU
   programs include Info manuals, you now ​have ​a simple way to link to and
   ​      ​jump​ ​to any marked item within any manual.

   Previously, when creating a link to an Info manual node, Hyperbole
   would ignore cross-references and menu items and just link directly
   to the node rather than anything it referenced.  To get that behavior
   now, simply link to a place in the node that does not reference another

   - Link Button Creation: Hyperbole now shows you what you linked to at
   global or explicit link button creation time.  Previously, it showed you
   only the type of the link.  So if you drag across windows from a button
   label to an Info index item now, you will know that the link goes to the
   index item entry and not to the index node containing the item reference.

   - New Implicit Button Type, pathname-line-and-column: A whitespace or quote
   delimited existing pathname followed by a :line-num and an optional
   :column-num displays the path at line-num and column-num.  So
   "~/.emacs:10:40" shows your Emacs initialization file at line 10 and
   column 40.  The column number is optional.​

   - GNU Info Manual Key Sequences: Previously, Hyperbole recognized​ ​key
   sequences delimited by curly braces only, {}.  Now it recognizes​ the​
   ​quotation ​marks used in GNU Info manuals as well and can execute them
   with an Action Key press within Info buffers.

   - Imenu Item Recognition: When the Emacs imenu library is in use and an
   identifier menu has been generated for the current buffer, an Action Key
   press on an identifier at point jumps to the identifier definition
   within the current buffer; an Assist Key press prompts with completion
   for an identifier defined within the buffer and then jumps to its


   - Smart Key Debugging: Added a section, "(hyperbole)Smart Key Debugging",
   to the Hyperbole Manual, documenting the usage of the Customize Menu
   option, Toggle-Smart-Key-Debug (minibuffer menu Cust/Debug-Toggle,
   {C-h h c d}).


   - Toggle Hyperbole Keys: The new command, {M-x hyperbole-toggle-bindings
   RET}, toggles Hyperbole mouse and keyboard keys off and on.  This is not
   bound to a key because it will make Hyperbole unusable until the keys are
   re-established with another toggle.  This forces you to know what you are
   doing before you utilize this feature.


   - Minibuffer Keyboard Direct Selection:  You have always been able to click
   with your mouse on a minibuffer menu item to directly select it.  Now
   Hyperbole has the keys {TAB} or {M-f} to move to the next menu item and
   {Shift-TAB}, {M-TAB} or {M-b} to move to the previous item, with each
   cycling back when it reaches the end or beginning of the menu.  The
   fastest way to select minibuffer menu items from the keyboard remains
   typing the first letter (case-insensitive) of the menu item.

   - Minibuffer Menu Navigation Changes: A press of {RET} with point at the
   end of a menu, quits from the menu.  {RET} with point in a menu prefix
   (before the '>' character), returns to the top-level Hyperbole menu.
   Clicks of the Action Mouse Key do the same thing, so now you can
   navigate and quit from menus with just the Action Mouse Key.

   *  			        V5.13 and V5.14


   - Instant Bug Lookups and Queries: New Gnu Debbugs bug/issue tracking
   implicit button type, debbugs-gnu-query, that jumps to the description
   and discussion of issues by issue number and displays an issue's status.
   This works for the GNU Hyperbole issue tracker as well as many other GNU
   projects.  All of these button formats may be embedded within any text:

   bug#id-number, bug# id-number, bug #id-number or bug id-number

   Note that `issue' or `debbugs' may be used in place of `bug'.

   See the documentation at the start of "hib-debbugs.el" for more

   - During the creation of link-to-Info-node explicit buttons with an
   argument of the type (filename)nodename, full completion is offered for
   both the filename and the node name; just type ? to list completions
   after typing a few characters.  You now can drop the .info suffix from
   filenames as well, so "(hyperbole)Smart Keys" works fine as a node

   - Implicit links from the output of the UNIX apropos command now work
   properly in Emacs 25.

   - Implicit pathname matches now handle compressed Emacs Lisp files found
   anywhere within the directories of `load-path' and do not try to expand
   paths that begin with a ~.

   - New variable, `hpath:info-suffix', is a regular expression of Info
   filename suffixes which may be omitted when using parenthesized Info
   filenames in links; this allows for compressed Info file matches and Info
   pathnames of the form "(Hyperbole)" to work.  That displays the top node
   of the Hyperbole Manual in the Info browser.

   - Pathnames ending in .mp3, .wav or .ogg are played as music files rather
   than displayed if your Emacs has support for this.  Modify the value of
   the variable, `hpath:internal-display-alist' to add more formats.

   - New per-window system association list variables determine what if any
   file types within Hyperbole hyperlinks are displayed by external programs
   outside of Emacs.  See the values of and documentation for:
   `hpath:external-display-alist-macos', `hpath:external-display-alist-mswindows',
   and `hpath:external-display-alist-x'.

   - Added support for &, ~, and ^ as identifier characters in Lisp tags and
   removed #.


   - DEMO File: Major updates to reflect the latest Hyperbole features.  Added
   sections on HyControl, Creating and Modifying Explicit Buttons and
   Path Suffixes and Variables.  Try it out with {C-h h d d}.

   - Hyperbole Manual
   - Updated all screenshots in the manual; thanks to Mats L.
   - In the "(hyperbole)Internal Viewers" section, added a description of
   the file formats supported by the default setting of the
   `hpath:internal-display-alist' variable.
   - Added sections "(hyperbole)Smart Key Modifiers" and
   "(hyperbole)Smart Key Modeline".
   - Added a "(hyperbole)Glossary" entry for Chord Keyboard.
   - In "(hyperbole)Smart Key Thing Selection", added documentation of the
   {C-c RET} key for syntactical region marking and the {C-c .} key for
   delimited thing jumping between start and end.
   - In the Cust/ menu section of "(hyperbole)Menus" which lists all
   Hyperbole key bindings, indicated which keys are bound only if not
   bound prior to loading Hyperbole.


   - Frame placement calculations now account for window system decorations
   around frame, leading to improved placement offsets around screen edges.
   See the documentation for `hycontrol-set-screen-offsets'.


   - On the Hyperbole menubar menu, the Types submenu which shows
   documentation for Hyperbole types has been moved below the Documentation
   menu to match the Hyperbole minibuffer menu location.  Also added a Types
   menu item under the Explicit-Button menu to match the one under the
   Implicit-Button menu.

   - On the Hyperbole Customize/Change-Key-Bindings menubar menu, renamed
   these entries and added Mark-Thing-Key.  Similar updates done to the
   minibuffer menu.


   - An Action Key press on a Hyperbole minibuffer menu key sequence now
   invokes the associated menu action.  Try it with {C-h h d g} to see the
   Hyperbole glossary.  An Assist Key press shows help for the menu item.

   - Changed the `assist-key-default-function' which applies in an unrecognized
   context to trigger an error by default to match the behavior of the
   Action Key.  Its prior value, toggle display of or hide the Smart Key
   summary, is performed by an Assist Key click in the right of a modeline
   or via minibuffer menu with {C-h h d s}.

   - Point is now left within the Smart Key summary by default and it is in
   help mode so you can page through it with SPC and DEL keys and then quit
   from it with {q}.

   - A click of the Action Mouse Key within an inactive minibuffer window
   displays the Hyperbole minibuffer menu, allowing you to invoke menu
   entries with the mouse.  A click of the Assist Key in the same place
   displays the buffer, window and frame jump menu just as does a click
   within the middle of a modeline since it is easy to miss by a little and
   click on one or the other.  These behaviors are controlled by the new
   variables, `action-key-minibuffer-function' and

   - Distributed Window System Support: Previously, Hyperbole supported mouse
   control only on the screen on which it was launched.  If you used
   emacsclient or other means to create a frame on another screen or outside
   of a terminal, that frame would not have Hyperbole mouse support even
   though it was under a window system.  Now each frame receives mouse
   support whenever its window system has mouse support.

   - Improved support for using the Action and Assist Mouse Keys as Control-
   and Meta- modifier keys, mainly for use with a chord keyboard or to
   balance hand use to reduce carpal tunnel stress.  Made `hmouse-mod-mode'
   a regular minor mode.  See "(hyperbole)Smart Key Modifiers" for more


   - Fixed entry sorting to work with Emacs 25.

   *				    V5.12


   - Prevented keyword matches as identifiers in Java, C++, C, Objective-C
   and Python. 

   - Prevented @ annotation matches when matching to Java identifiers/tags.

   - In Info documentation browsing mode, added support for index nodes and
   for fixed header line and text-property-based breadcrumb header lines
   now used in Emacs, so the Action Key can now follow links associated
   with all of these entities.

   - In compilation buffers, e.g. {M-x make RET}, if an error line has a
   relative pathname which Hyperbole cannot resolve, it will prompt
   for the directory in which to resolve the path.


   - Added printable hyperbole.pdf version of the Hyperbole Manual.

   - DEMO file: Updated horizontal and vertical drag exercises to
   correspond to current Hyperbole behavior.

   - Added chapter on HyControl, window, frame and buffer control.

   - In the Hyperbole Manual Glossary, added Buffer, Frame, HyControl
   and Window definitions. 

   - Added additional Q&A in an appendix.

   - Clarified and fixed Smart Key modeline behavior documentation.

   - Made example text larger for easier reading.

   - Added Screen definition to the Glossary.


   - Hyperbole now includes the fastest, easiest-to-use Emacs window and frame
   management system available; we call it HyControl.  If you use a lot of
   Emacs windows or frames (typically, window system windows), this is for
   you.  HyControl lets you interactively adjust the current layout of your
   windows and frames down to the pixel-level if desired.  You keep
   adjusting the location, size and display elements of your windows and
   frames until they look as you like and then you simply quit HyControl and
   go back to work.

   - Expanded Hyperbole menu of buffers by major mode to allow for
   `hui-menu-max-list-length' number of buffers, by default, 24.

   - Made a right to left horizontal drag from near a right-side window divider
   properly shrink the window width under Emacs 25.


   - The Hyperbole Screen submenu provides access to HyControl as well as the
   key binding {C-c \}.

   - Removed {C-c C-t} hmouse-toggle-bindings key binding.  This
   should be used rarely, so force use of {M-x hmouse-toggle-bindings RET). 

   - Updated "hmouse-mod.el" library for Emacs 25; it allows using the Smart
   Mouse Keys as Control and Meta modifiers when desired.


   - Improved recognition of Klinks, preventing false matches.

   - Added missing {C-c C-i}/{C-c TAB} binding mentioned in the EXAMPLE.kotl
   file; sets cell attributes.

   - {C-t} Transpose characters - Added error checks at the beginning of cells
   and end of lines for times when there are not 2 chars to transpose.


   - Improved {M-s} interactive string searching for rolo match buffer strings.
   Made {C-u M-s} do a regexp search for rolo match buffer strings.

   - Documented the {l} hyrolo-locate command in the Hyperbole manual.

   - The format of the rolo entry date added to new entries is now configurable
   via the variable, `hyrolo-date-format'.  It uses the formatting
   strings listed in the documentation of the function `format-time-string'.

   - All rolo find and search commands are now case-insensitive.

   - Using a numeric prefix argument with rolo find commands now
   properly limits the number of matches to a maximum of that number.

   - If the Big Brother Database (BBDB) is loaded before the rolo, its
   `bbdb-file' is added to the list of files searched by the rolo.
   You can manually added this file to `hyrolo-file-list' as well and
   its format will automatically be handled by the rolo.

   *				    V5.11


   - Improved support for remote pathname access (outside local


   - Much faster and better lookup of active Emacs Lisp identifiers
   when the Action Key is pressed over one.  Face definitions are
   also found now.  TAGS files are used only if the identifier has
   not been loaded within the current Emacs session.


   - Proper support for isearch temporary display of invisible text
   when it contains a search match.  {C-s}, interactive search,
   expands and contracts text dynamically to show any search
   results, just as it does in the regular Emacs outline mode.  You
   can toggle whether such searches include invisible/hidden text
   (the default) or not.  Use the
   Customize/Toggle-Isearch-Invisible-Text menubar item or the
   Cust/Isearch-Invisible minibuffer menu item to toggle this


   - New variable, `inhibit-hyperbole-messaging' with default value
   of t inhibits Hyperbole's support for explicit buttons within
   mail and news buffers.  When t, Hyperbole will not alter
   messaging mode hooks nor overload functions from these packages,
   preventing potential incompatibilities.

   If you want to use Hyperbole buttons in mail and news buffers,
   use the new Customize/Toggle-Messaging-Explicit-Buttons menubar
   item or the minibuffer menu Cust/Msg-Toggle-Ebuts item.  These
   not only change the variable value but also add or remove the
   setup hooks as necessary.


   - New {o} key binding for an overview of all Rolo matches at all
   levels, one line per entry.

   - {t} top-level cells command works in all cases now.

   - {Shift-TAB} added as an additional key to move backwards one
   Rolo match.

   - Improved operation of {l} and {M-s C-s} commands that search for
   occurrences of match strings and allow extending the search term.

   - Support for looking up contacts in the Big Brother Database
   (BBDB) file of email addresses, when that package is used.
   The functions, hyrolo-grep-bbdb finds regular expression matches
   and hyrolo-fgrep-bbdb finds string matches.  All regular Rolo
   match buffer commands may then be applied. The {e} command for
   editing an entry signals an error when applied to the BBDB file,


   - The Assist Key when pressed in the middle portion of a modeline
   now pops up a very useful menu of display-oriented commands.
   Jump to buffers categorized by major mode, to windows by buffer
   name, or to frames by name.  Manage your windows and frames
   quickly with this menu as well.  Another can't live without
   feature.  This comes from the new file, hui-jmenu.el.

   - Added Python etags support for jumping to Python definitions.
   With the separate OO-Browser package, definition location is
   much better than just with etags.
   See "(hyperbole)Smart Key - Python Source Code" for help.

   - The Hyperbole Manual Smart Key Reference appendix now has a
   subsection for each context, allowing quick reference of a
   particular Smart Key context.  Also, added documentation for
   delimited thing selection, copying and moving.

   - New function, hyperbole-popup-menu, to display the Hyperbole
   menubar menu at the mouse point (or the left of the menubar when
   running on a dumb terminal).  This is useful as a setting
   of `action-key-default-function' if you want some undefined
   Action Key context to popup this menu in order to use Hyperbole

   *				    V5.10


   - Hyperbole now downloads, builds and installs as a regular
   Emacs package (but from a special archive location while pre-testing).

   - Automatic time-zone handling under MS Windows (already existed
   for UNIX-like operating systems).  Plus support for 3 mouse
   buttons under Windows.


   - Updated the extended find-file commands which handle http (www) and ftp
   URLs to support the Tramp library included with newer versions of Emacs.
   Use the menu item Hyperbole/Customization/Find-File-Accepts-URLs to
   enable or to disable this.  See "(hyperbole)Using URLs with Find-File"
   for details.


   - Editing commands that normally delete/replace an active region
   now do this in the Koutline.  If a region extends beyond one
   cell, an error is triggered or if `kotl-mode:shrink-region-flag'
   is set to t, the Koutliner automatically shrinks the region to
   the first cell within the region and then continues the editing

   - Updated yanking and other editing commands for improved
   compatibility with Emacs 25.

   - Internal improvements to many tree handling, filling and view
   changing commands.

   - New Shift-TAB key binding to demote trees (shift them up a
   level), for compatibility with other outliners.


   - The new Find/Locate-Files menu item (minibuffer menu
   Find/LocateFiles) prompts for a pattern and displays a list of
   all matching pathnames found throughout the file system.  On Mac
   OS X, this uses Spotlight (the mdfind command); on UNIX, it uses
   the `locate' command.  Within the result *Locate* buffer, you
   can then use the Find/Grep-Files menu item to find matching
   lines within only these paths (files and directories).


   - Action Key now ignores JavaScript keywords when searching for
   identifiers to match.

   - Commands that interactively prompt for a Koutline cell label now
   offer completion and require a match to a visible outline cell.
   This helps prevent operating on an invisible cell unintentionally.


   - Selection of open/close matched tag pairs and jumping between
   them now works in web-mode, which supports multiple web
   languages within one file (previously only html-mode was
   supported).  Also, can now select chained identifiers like:
   parent.child.subchild in html and web modes with the {C-c
   RETURN} thing selection key.

   - Can now select comments when at a comment start; try it with
   the Action Key.

   - Can now select Lisp symbols with colons in them within help
   buffers since they often appear there.


   - hyperb:init-hook renamed to hyperbole-init-hook, a more standard name.
   See the GNU Hyperbole Manual for its usage.

   *				    V5.09


   - The Window-Configuration menu (minibuffer Win/ menu) now stores and
   restores frame-specific window configurations, allowing each frame to be
   dedicated to different types of work or groups of buffers.


   - Hyperbole initialization is greatly simplified.  A single "~/.emacs"
   line of the form:

   (require 'hyperbole (expand-file-name "hyperbole" "/")

   loads and initializes Hyperbole.  Please change your site-wide or
   personal initialization to this.  (No more setting of hyperb:dir and
   load-path nor copying of hsite-ex.el to hsite.el is required; Hyperbole
   does this for you).


   - A new Customize Menu option, Toggle-Smart-Key-Debug (minibuffer menu
   Cust/Debug-Toggle, {C-h h c d}), displays a message in the minibuffer
   every time the Action Key or Assist Key is pressed, showing the context
   of the press and its associated action, allowing you to easily see
   what is happening whenever you use a Smart Key.

   These messages are all prefaced with "(HyDebug)" and are accumulated in
   the *Messages* buffer for later viewing.

   - Smart Keys work in any completion buffer now, e.g. the ido.el completion

   - Horizontal and vertical mouse drags within a single window, that do not
   begin on a thing delimiter, are now simpler and more consistent.  An
   Action Key drag splits the window either below (horizontal drag) or
   side-by-side (vertical drag).  An Assist Key drag deletes the window.

   - Hyperbole no longer uses the right mouse button, so it is free for popup menus.
   The Assist Mouse Key is always on the Shift-Right mouse button as well as
   on a C-u prefix to the Action Mouse Key.

   - A new setting, `hmouse-middle-flag', when set to t (true) before Hyperbole
   is loaded adds the middle mouse key as an Action Key.  InfoDock does this
   by default.

   - ibuffer-mode, the dired-like menu listing for buffers, is now supported
   by the Smart Keys; it behaves similarly to that of Buffer-menu-mode.

   - Xref item listing mode is now supported by the Smart Keys; The Action
   Key displays an xref file line or just a file containing an xref.
   The Assist Key displays the same but leaves point in the listing buffer.
   Xref is a built-in Emacs package that displays definitions and
   cross-references of identifier strings.  It is similar to etags, but
   more general. 


   - Now compatible with the latest version of outline.el (using invisible overlays).

   - All menus for the Hyperbole auto-numbered outliner, called the Koutliner,
   now begin with 'K'.  Some used to start with 'O'.  To edit the example
   Koutline, use {C-h h k e}.

   - {C-c C-a}  - Show-all, expand all cells in the current view.
   {C-c C-o}  - Overview, show only first line of outline cells.
   {C-c C-t}  - Top-level, hide all cells below level 1 and show
   only the first line of each level 1 cell.

   By default, these commands no longer affect the display of blank lines
   between cells.  But if given a prefix argument, they toggle blank
   lines display for quick view changes.

   - Values of `user-mail-address' or `message-user-fqdn' are now
   used to set the creator and modifier names in Koutline cells.


   - The menu item that composes mail to the bug-hyperbole mail list now
   includes any (HyDebug) messages output when the Hyperbole configuration
   option, hkey-debug is enabled (via the Customize Menu or via
   {C-h h c d}).

   *				    V5.08


   - Added web version of the Hyperbole Manual.


   - Action Key presses on Texinfo menu items and @node item references now
   display the associated Texinfo node.  @code and @var references to Emacs
   Lisp identifiers now show the documentation for the identifiers.  As
   before, cross-references and file includes show the referenced items;
   keyboard key sequences invoke their associated bindings.

   - Action Key press on an Emacs push button activates the button.  An Assist
   Key press shows help for the button.


   - Delimited things, including lists, comments, strings, arrays/vectors,
   sets, functions and markup pair tags (e.g. 
), may now be selected, copied or moved with the Action and Assist mouse and keyboard keys whenever point is on the first character of the starting or ending delimiter. For strings and comments, point must be on the first line. - New {C-c .} binding that jumps between the start and end delimiters of delimited things. Try it on matching markup tag pairs in HTML and SGML modes. If point is not immediately before or after a delimiter, this generally does nothing. - New {C-c RET} binding selects bigger and bigger syntactical units within a buffer with each successive invocation. Double clicks of the left mouse button do the same thing. Try it, you'll like it. =========================================================================== * V5.07 =========================================================================== EMACS VERSIONS - Support for the latest pre-releases of Emacs 25 and new versions of XEmacs. HYPERLINKS - URL handling updated along with customization menus to support most popular web browsers in use. - Action Key on a mailto: URI starts composing mail to that address. - When testing file formats/suffixes for an external viewer in which to display the file, as a fallback, a MIME system mailcap file is used to find additional possible viewers. See "http://www.wikiwand.com/en/Mailcap" for information on mailcap files. - Jump to JavaScript identifier definitions. - History, {C-h h h}, now restores full multi-window and multi-frame display configurations (within a single Emacs session), rather than just returning to a prior location in a buffer. - Type {q} in a Hyperbole Help buffer hide that buffer and return to your prior location. KEYS - By default, Hyperbole now removes any mode-specific, local key bindings that conflict with the global Smart Key bindings (typically {Meta-Return}). Use the Customize/Toggle-Override-Local-Keys to disable (or re-enable) this feature. KOUTLINER - When running under InfoDock, its Go and Options menus now appear within the Koutliner menu. - With a prefix argument, Koutlines are exported to HTML with soft newlines rather than hard newlines, so text will flow based on browser window size. This option will remove line-by-line formatting within a cell, however. MENUS - New Find menu which can reduce a buffer to just matching or non-matching lines, run the 'grep' or 'fgrep' utilities on a file directory tree, or list matching lines in the current buffer or across all buffers with attached files. - Renamed Customization menu to Customize. - New Customize/Change-Key-Bindings menu lets you rebind any Hyperbole keys for your current emacs session. ------- VERY OLD CHANGES BELOW HERE ------- =========================================================================== * V4.18 =========================================================================== ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - Default Action Key action is to signal an error (rather than display the Hyperbole minibuffer menu) since it was too easy to confuse new users with this behavior. More skilled users can set `action-key-default-function' to do what they would like. - Fixed bug that caused proportional scrolling to not be the default when the Action Key is pressed at the end of a line. KOUTLINER - Fixed filling behavior when used with the `filladapt' package under InfoDock. - Improved text file importation process. =========================================================================== * V4.17 =========================================================================== IMPLICIT BUTTON TYPES - The Action Key now recognizes existing local files without any delimiters (aside from whitespace). This allows you to display files from directory listings or virtually anywhere within documents. Relative pathnames are resolved relative to the directory associated with the current buffer. - Extended find-file commands to handle http (www) and ftp URLs if the efs package is available and the Hyperbole/Customization/Find-File-Accepts-URLs is enabled. See "(hyperbole)Using URLs with Find-File" for details. - Improved display of special files via external viewers. - Added support for jumping to the source of errors from the Weblint Perl package. - The `make' error implicit button type now accounts for movement from one directory to another within make output so that the right source file is selected. CONTACT MANAGER - Default personal rolo file renamed to "~/.rolo.otl" ("C:_rolo.otl" on Windows). When the contact manager is loaded, it will automatically prompt you to rename this file when necessary. You should rename it but if you choose not to the old rolo file will be searched. - Added `rolo-display-format-function' which can be used to customize the display of rolo search matches. See the Info manual section, "(hyperbole)HyRolo Settings" for details. KOUTLINER - Fixed interaction problem with the standard editor autofilling functions. =========================================================================== * V4.16 =========================================================================== This release fixes a number of small issues with tags table handling under GNU Emacs and Koutline export to HTML. ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - Added support for selection of function names from a buffer in fume-list-mode created by the func-menu.el package. =========================================================================== * V4.15 =========================================================================== ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - Added support for the pop-tag-mark command {M-*} available in some editors to move back to prior code locations displayed from clicking the Action Key on an identifier or other cross-reference. {C-u M-*} moves forward (instead of back) through this location history list. - Added support for multiple TAGS file searches when looking for an identifier definition from an Action Key click. Each TAG file found in an ancestor directory of the current directory is searched until an exact match is found (otherwise, an error message is displayed). This works only under newer editors whose tag support includes multiple tag file searching. - Added support for Action Key clicks on identifiers displayed in `help-mode' by the emacs Lisp variable and function documentation command under newer editor versions. - On case-insensitive OSes, automatically load OO-Browser Environment files named `oobr' instead of `OOBR'. =========================================================================== * V4.11-4.14 =========================================================================== CONTACT MANAGER - Support for editing entries found from logical expression queries. EMACS VERSIONS - Support for XEmacs version 20 and above. - Support for NT Emacs and XEmacs on NT. KOUTLINER - New Demote, Promote, Tab-Key-Inserts-Spaces and Tab-Key-Tabs-Over items added to the Edit menu. - Hyperbole/Koutliner menu items are now deactivated when the current buffer is not a Koutline. - Meta-Backspace under XEmacs now does the right thing (deletes a word backwards by default). HYPERLINKS - An entry in (hpath:get-external-display-alist) used to externally display special file types may now contain a list of executables, the first of which is found on a system is used to do the display. The executable to use is recomputed each time a file is displayed to account for any changes in executables found in the search path. - Abbreviated URLs of the form www.domain.com are now properly recognized (there was a bug in earlier versions). - Added support for CRLF line endings used under Microsoft OSes. - Improved button highlighting initialization. IMPLICIT BUTTON TYPES - New type, gnus-push-button, for clicking on or pressing buttons embedded in GNUS articles, e.g. to collapse and expand signatures. - Improved debugger stack backtrace recognition and source line jumping. - MANIFEST.suffix files are now recognized and treated like files named MANIFEST (allowing you to browse the contents by pressing the Action on entries within the file). - URL browsing now uses the `browse-url-browser-function' variable to determine which web browser to invoke. The menus have been converted to use this variable as well. Hyperbole will automatically read old settings of `action-key-url-function' and convert to this new standard. Additionally the Grail (Python-based) and Lynx (text-based) browsers have been added to the Customization menu. - Added initial point-and-click Python support. MOUSE SUPPORT - Better support for 2-button mice. =========================================================================== * V4.10 =========================================================================== ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - When a region is active within your editor, the Action Mouse Key pastes the region within the window where it is clicked. - Better handling of selection of C++ `operator' methods. - An Action Key press on an entry in an OO-Browser OOBR-FTR feature tag file jumps to the definition of the entry within the source code. - Greatly improved selection of minibuffer arguments from completion buffers with the Action Key. - An Action Key click on any filename with OOBR (case-sensitive) within its name will now load the file as an OO-Browser Environment and display its classes within the OO-Browser. (This used to work only for Files whose exact name was OOBR or OOBR-FTR.) - An Action Key press on a file whose suffix is .rdb now loads the file as an InfoDock RDB in-memory relational database file. The InfoDock RDB package is available separately as part of InfoDock. - Added support for sending a URL to another web browser with an Action Key click when in a W3 web browser buffer. Eliminated support for the old Mosaic browser. IMPLICIT BUTTON TYPES - New type, id-cflow, used to browse C code call trees produced by InfoDock's "id-cflow.el" module. See that file for details if you have InfoDock. - grep-msg type that displays source lines associated with grep messages and compiler error messages now supports Microsoft JVC error messages. - Improved URL identification, including support for terse URLs that contain no protocol prefix, e.g. www.gnu.org. CONTACT MANAGER - The Rolo/Search-for-String (rolo-fgrep) command can now do logical searches using prefix logical expressions surrounded by parentheses: (or string1 string2) (xor string1 (and string2 string3)) ;; xor is exclusive-or (not string1) - Accelerated location of the alphabetized insertion point for a new contact entry by 3-fold. KOUTLINER - Koutlines can now be converted to nice looking HTML documents with one command, `kexport:html', on the menus as Koutline/Export-to-HTML. Relative identifiers, hyperlinks and idstamps are all properly exported to the HTML document. Other cell attributes are not yet exported. - Autonumber labels in new outlines are now terminated with a "." rather than a space by default to better delimit labels. - Added kotl-mode:tab-flag which can allow easy insertion of many tab characters and can make the TAB key demote cells only when point is at the beginning of the cell. - Added support for indenting regions within a cell via the kotl-mode:indent-region command. - New menu item, Import-to-Koutline, for importing star-delimited outlines, other koutlines and Augment-system post-numbered outlines (ignore this if you don't know what the Augment system is). EMACS VERSIONS - Support for GNU Emacs version 20 and above. DOCUMENTATION - The Hyperbole online manual can now be browsed automatically from within the Hyperbole distribution without the need to install it separately within the editor. =========================================================================== * V4.024-V4.027 =========================================================================== DOCUMENTATION - Rewrote the Hyperbole manual for clarity and ease of reading. Added a number of images. ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - Improved recognition of local file URLs. - Disabled the {C-c t} key which usually switches between Hyperbole and personal mouse settings since this is too easy for novices to press and then not know why their mouse keys have changed. - Emacs Lisp filenames without any pathname information are now properly displayed when the Action Key is depressed over them and they are delimited by quotes. - Action Key press over .dvi file names now invoke the Xdvi previewer by default. - Action Key press on Fortran90 identifiers now jump to their definitions if a TAGS table has been built. - Action Key press in a Texinfo file on an @xref, @pxref or @ref keyword displays the associated node within the Texinfo file. An Action Key press within the braces of the cross-reference displays the online Info node associated with the cross-reference, if the Info manual has already been installed. - Image files may be displayed within the editor if the editor supports this and image-mode is available. - The new variable, hypb:mail-address-mode-list, determines the major modes in which Action Key presses on mail addresses start composing mail to that address. - Action Key presses on lines in ctags files (tags) or etags files (TAGS) jump to either the pathname on the line or the definition of the tag on the current line. - Eliminated trailing commas from inclusion in URLs sent to a browser. KOUTLINER - Improved paragraph filling even more under InfoDock. - Eliminated local {M-BS} binding if it is already bound when the Koutliner is invoked. - Added +V interactive reading extension for reading a Koutliner View Spec within a Lisp command. - Added Label-Type/Set-Label-Separator menu item for changing the separator between Koutline cell numbers and their body text. - Added an `Example' menu item to the Koutliner menu to simplify interactive editing of the EXAMPLE.kotl file. BUTTONS - Info-directory-list setting is now recognized during link-to-Info-node button creations. MENUS - Added an item to add and remove the Hyperbole Menu from the menubar. MAIL READERS - Updated VM interface for version 6.19. =========================================================================== * V4.023 =========================================================================== ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - Action Key clicks on HTTP URLs use the Emacs internal web browser if not running under a window system. CONTACT MANAGER - Date stamps are added to each rolo entry when created and updated when edited. This feature can be toggled on and off with: M-x rolo-toggle-datestamps RET, or via the Toggle-Rolo-Dates menu item on the Customization menu. - wrolo-add-hook is called after a new entry is added. wrolo-edit-hook is called after an entry is displayed for editing. =========================================================================== * V4.02 =========================================================================== ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - Support for new ID-edit mode (a part of InfoDock) that allows rapid, cutting, copying and yanking of regions plus fast display management. In this mode, the Action and Assist keys yank the previously selected region at point. - An Action Key press on a Java identifier jumps to its definition (if an associated TAGS file or OO-Browser environment exists). The same is true for an `@see' cross-reference within a Java comment. The variable, `smart-java-package-path,' determines where Java package source can be found when the OO-Browser is not in use. - An Action Key press on a double or single quoted Emacs Lisp filename (without any path) displays the file by looking for it among the directories in the variable, `load-path'. - If the Action Key is pressed on a function identifier that is defined in the same buffer as the reference clicked upon, it will now be displayed faster, since the func-menu package will be used. The reference identifier will also flash when pressed, if the display device supports this. EMACS VERSIONS - Further support for MS-DOS, Windows NT Emacs, and Win-Emacs. - Fixed configuration setup problem when running Emacs on a dumb terminal. KOUTLINER - XEmacs 19.14 and above: Fixed display of current viewspec in the modeline to accommodate modeline extents (specialized modeline regions). This eliminated an error that occurred when reading in an Koutline file. - Fixed bug that prevented installation of Koutliner mode-specific menubar when running InfoDock. MENUS - New Hyperbole/About menu item added. In minibuffer menus, this item is found under the Doc/ menu. - New window system menu, Hyperbole/Customization (and minibuffer menu, Cust/) added to set Hyperbole options, including where Hyperbole link referents are displayed, where URLs are displayed and whether to use proportional or windowful scrolling when a Smart Key is pressed at the end of a line. - The default setting of where Hyperbole link references are displayed may be set in "hsite.el" via the variable, `hpath:display-where' (after Hyperbole has been installed using `make install'). See its documentation for detail. - The Hyperbole/Global-Button menu now includes a menu item that will activate each existing global button. The Hyperbole/Explicit-Button menu does the same thing for explicit buttons in the current buffer. CONTACT MANAGER - Rolo-edit, bound to {e} in the rolo match buffer, now works properly if the rolo is loaded before the rest of the Hyperbole system. =========================================================================== * V4.00 and V4.01 =========================================================================== ACTION AND ASSIST KEYS - New variable, action-key-url-function, sets the function used to display URLs which are activated as implicit buttons with the Action Key. - Action or Assist Key presses at the end of a line now scroll proportionally, by default. See the documentation for the variable, smart-scroll-proportional, and the Smart Scrolling section of the Hyperbole DEMO file, for more information. - Fixed bug that prevented browsing Info files in dired with the Action Key. BUTTON TYPES - "hsys-w3.el" is now automatically loaded so that the Action Key can follow URLs by default. It defines the implicit button type, www-url. - New implicit button type, text-toc, makes table of contents entries in README files jump to the associated section of the file. Try it with this file once you have loaded the current version of Hyperbole. DOCUMENTATION - A lot of work has gone into reorganizing and rewriting the Hyperbole manual to improve its readability and completeness. A full chapter on the Koutliner has been added. Please take some time to read the parts of interest to you and send your feedback on what is good and what is not to the mail list, . EMACS VERSIONS - MS-DOS and Windows NT Emacs 19 or Win-Emacs: Made Hyperbole work under all of these PC Emacs versions. - Emacs 19: Fixed bug that prevented Action Key selection of minibuffer menu items. - Emacs 19: Hyperbole menubar menus are now properly displayed. - Emacs 19: Action Key press on a filename that has a .info suffix displays the Top node for that info file in the Info browser. KOUTLINER - You can now view and edit koutlines with blank lines between cells turned off. {C-c b} now toggles between showing or hiding blank lines. - Minibuffer menu item Otl/Below renamed to Otl/Downto so could add Otl/Blanks which toggles blank lines on and off. - {C-c C-o} which displays one line per cell, for an overview, now also turns off blank lines. - {C-c C-i} adds an attribute to the current cell. It changes the attribute's value if it already exists. Completion on existing attribute names from the cell is provided. - {C-c h}, which displays cell attributes, when given "0" as the cell id now displays the zero cell's attributes in addition to any other attributes shown. - By default, the Koutliner separates labels from cell contents by two spaces. If you want to change the separator for the current outline, use {C-c M-l}. {C-u C-c M-l} will additionally change the default separator value used when new outlines are created. - If you invoke {M-x kotl-mode RET} on a non-read-only, non-koutline buffer, it converts each paragraph in the buffer into a level 1 cell, and thereby creates a koutline buffer. The conversion uses the buffer-specific variable, `paragraph-start' to determine the paragraphs in the buffer. - If you save a koutline to a file whose name does not end in .kotl, e.g. with {C-x C-w} (kfile:write), it will still be treated as a valid koutline when you read it in again. You can create a koutline file without the standard suffix via {M-x kfile:find RET} or by converting a buffer to a koutline via {M-x kotl-mode RET}. - Each koutline now maintains a current view setting that is saved with the outline and restored when it is first displayed. View settings include: show/hide blank lines, show a fixed number of lines per cell, show a fixed number of levels in the outline, show all lines and cells, show/hide ellipses after truncated outline entries, set cell numbering (label) types. - View settings are controlled by single character codes called view specs. The current view spec setting for a koutline appears in the modeline following the name of the outline. The current view spec setting may be changed interactively with {C-c C-v}. See <${hyperb:dir}/kotl/EXAMPLE.kotl, 2b16=048> for details on valid view specs. - Minibuffer menu item Otl/View changed to Otl/Vspec to set a view specification. Use {C-x C-r} to view a Koutline in read-only mode. - Added View menu to Koutliner popup and pulldown menus. Moved view-related tree operations from Tree menu to View menu. - Fixed importation of star outline and Augment-style files. - The elements of a another buffer or file may be inserted into a koutline as a set of cells by using the {C-x i} command. When prompted, you may use a buffer name or file name from which to insert. The cells will be inserted as the successors of the current cell unless {C-u C-x i} is used and then they are inserted as the initial children of the current cell. See the documentation for the variables, kimport:mode-alist and kimport:suffix-alist, for information on mode and suffix-specific conversions performed on files before they are inserted. Use {M-x kimport:insert-file-contents RET} to insert the entire contents of a file into the current cell at the location of point. - {M-x kimport:file RET} will prompt for a file and a new koutline file to create and will insert the elements of the file in the new outline. (You can also use buffer or buffer names as arguments instead of file names.) See the documentation for the variables, kimport:mode-alist and kimport:suffix-alist, for information on how the importation type is determined. - {C-c +} appends the contents of one cell to the end of another. Added this as Append-Cell to popup and pulldown menus. - {M-w}, copy-region, now works properly in read-only outlines. CONTACT MANAGER - {e} within a rolo match buffer edits the associated entry within your rolo source file. Fixed bug that caused {e} to fail when entries are collapsed within the match buffer. - {C-h h r e}, rolo-edit, just displays your personal rolo file if you hit {RET} without specifying an entry name to edit. - {m} within a rolo match buffer composes mail to the the e-mail address at point or the first address following point. Also added as Rolo/Mail minibuffer menu item and Rolo/Mail-to-Address for window system menus. - New variable, wrolo-yank-reformat-function, permits reformatting of an entry yanked into the current buffer with {C-h h r y}, rolo-yank. WINDOW CONFIGURATIONS - The minibuffer menu items, Win/PopRing and Win/YankRing now redisplay the Win menu after performing their actions. This allows you to yank or pop window configurations repeatedly until you get to the one you want.
