Changelog

All notable changes to this project will be documented in this file.

The format is based on Keep a Changelog and this project adheres to Semantic Versioning.

Unreleased

Added

  • The new env variable $VIMB_SELECTION is set to the current selected text whenever a shellcmd is run #592.

Fixed

  • Fixed ignored last line in config file if this line did not end in newline.

Removed

  • Expansion of % to the current opened URI for :shellcmd was removed because it breaks the x-hint-command with URIs containing '%'. But it is still possible to use $VIMB_URI for the :shellcmd which has the same effect.

3.6.0 - 2020-01-02

Added

  • :cleardata [listOfDataTypes] [timeSpan] command to clear various types of stored website data modified in the last timeSpan.
  • Setting hint-match-element to allow to disable the hinting to filter hints by the elements text content. This is useful if 'hint-keys' are set the chars instead of numbers.
  • New autocmd event LoadStarting to run auto commands before the first page content is loaded (Thanks to Patrick Steinhardt).
  • Setting geolocation with values ('ask', 'always' and 'never') to allow the user to permit or disable geolcation requests by default (Thanks to Alva).
  • Setting dark-mode to switch the webview into dark mode, which might be picked up by pages media query to setup dark styling (Thanks to Alva).
  • Option --cmd, -C to run ex commands on startup.

Changed

Fixed

Removed

  • :clearcache was removed in favor of more advanced :cleardata command. The previous behaviour of :clearcache could be replaces by :cleardata memory-cache,disk-cache.

3.5.0 - 2019-07-29

Added

  • Add external download command #543 #348.
  • Added ephemeral mode by new option --incognito #562.

Changed

  • Hinting shows the current focused elements URI in the statusbar.
  • Show error if printing with :hardcopy fails #564.

Fixed

  • Fixed compilation if source is not in a git repo (Thanks to Patrick Steinhardt).
  • Fixed partial hidden hint labels on top of screen.
  • Fix segfault on open in new tabe from context menu #556.
  • Fix "... (null)" shown in title during url sanitization.

Removed

  • Setting private-browsing was removed in favor of --incognito option.

3.4.0 - 2019-03-26

Added

  • Allow to show video in fullscreen, without statusbar and inputbox, if requested.
  • Added option --no-maximize to no start with maximized window #483.
  • New setting prevent-newwindow to enforce opening links into same window even if they are crafted by target="_blank" or using window.open(...) #544.

Changed

  • Increased min required webkit version to 2.20.x.
  • Use man page date instead of build date ot make reproducible builds.
  • URLs shown on statusbar and title are now shown as punicode if they contain homographs.

Fixed

  • Fix out-of-bounds buffer access in parse_command (Thanks to Sören Tempel) #529.
  • Fixed none shown hint labels by Content-Security-Policy headers #531.
  • Fixed segfault on JavaScript window.close() call #537.
  • Fixed no char inserted in input mode after timeout and imap/inoremap candidate #546.

3.3.0 - 2018-11-06

Added

  • Allow to change following webkit settings during runtime
    • allow-file-access-from-file-urls
    • allow-universal-access-from-file-urls
  • Added #define CHECK_WEBEXTENSION_ON_STARTUP 1 to config.def.h to enable checks during runtime if the webextension file could be found. Hope that this helps user to fix compile/installation issues easier.
  • Re-Added support for page marks to jump around within long single pages by using names marks. Set a marks by m{a-z} in normal mode. Jump to marks by '{a-z}.
  • Re-Added gf to show page source (Thanks to Leonardo Taccari) #361. Webkit2 does not allow to show the page in the source view mode so the gf writes the HTML to a temporary files and opens it in the editor configured by :set editor-command=...

Changed

  • New created files in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/vimb are generated with 0600 permission to prevent cookies be observed on multi users systems. Existing files are not affected by this change. It's a good advice to change the permission of all the files in $XDG_CONFIG_HOME/vimb to 0600 by hand.

Fixed

  • Fixed missing dependency in Makefile which possibly caused broken builds (Thanks to Patrick Steinhardt).
  • Fixed weird scroll position values shown in scroll indicator on some pages #501.
  • Fixed wrong hint label position on xkcd.com #506.
  • Fixed wrong hint label position in case of hints within iframes.

3.2.0 - 2018-06-16

Added

  • Allow basic motion commands for hinting too.
  • Show the numbers of search matches in status bar.
  • Show dialog if the page makes a permission request e.g. geolocation to allow the user to make a decision.
  • new Setting show-titlebar to toggle window decorations.

Changed

  • Use sqlite as cookie storage #470 to prevent cookies lost on running many vimb instances.
  • Start vimb with maximized window #483.
  • Hints are now styled based on the vimbhint attributes. The old additional set classes are not set anymore to the hints. So customized css for the hints have to be adapted to this.
  • Element ID is stored in case the editor was spawned. So it's now possible to start the editor, load another page, come back and paste the editor contents (thanks to Sven Speckmaier).

Fixed

  • Fixed none cleaned webextension object files on make clean.
  • Remove none used gui styling for completion.

Removed

  • Removed webkit1 combat code.

3.1.0 - 2017-12-18

Added

  • Added completion of bookmarked URIs for :bmr to allow to easily remove bookmarks without loading the page first.
  • Refresh hints after scrolling the page or resizing the window which makes extended hint mode more comfortable.
  • Reintroduce the automatic commands from vimb2. An automatic command is executed automatically in response to some event, such as a URI being opened.

Changed

  • Number of webprocesses in no longer limited to one.
  • Treat hint label generation depending on the first hint-key char. If first char is '0' generate numeric style labels else the labels start with the first char (thanks to Yoann Blein).
    • hint-keys=0123 -> 1 2 3 10 11 12 13
    • hint-keys=asdf -> a s d f aa as ad af
  • Show versions of used libs on vimb --bug-info and the extension directory for easier issue investigation.
  • During hinting JavaScript is enabled and reset to it's previous setting after hinting is done might be security relevant.
  • Allow extended hints mode also for open g;o to allow the user to toggle checkboxes and radiobuttons of forms.
  • Rename hint-number-same-length into hint-keys-same-length for consistency.
  • Search is restarted on pressing n or N with previous search query if no one was given (thanks to Yoann Blein).

Fixed

  • Deduced min required webkit version 2.16.x -> 2.8.x to compile vimb also on older systems.
  • Fixed undeleted desktop file on make uninstall.
  • Fixed window not redrawn properly in case vimb was run within tabbed.
  • Fixed cursor appearing in empty inputbox on searching in case a normal mode command was used that switches vimb into command mode like 'T' or ':'.
  • Fixed hint labels never started by the first char of the 'hint-keys'.
  • Fixed items where added to history even when history-max-items is set to 0 (thanks to Patrick Steinhardt).
  • Fixed hinting caused dbus timeout on attempt to open URI with location hash.
  • Fixed wrong scroll position shown in the right of the statusbar on some pages.
  • Fixed vimb keeping in normal mode when HTTP Authentication dialog is shown.
  • Fixed password show in title bar and beeing written to hisotry in case the pssword was given by URI like https://user:password@host.tdl.
