  • better utf-8 handling with KEY_PRESS/RELEASE (Rob)
  • Point to correct prefix in default config (Dieter)
  • New events: PLUG_CREATED, COMMAND_ERROR, BUILTINS (Rob)
  • Removal of deprecated yank, clipboard, cookies.py scripts (Dieter)
  • Stacked bindings work from the insert mode now. (Mason)
  • MODKEY_ADDITION request to group multiple modkeys as one (Mason)
  • IGNORE_KEY request to customize which keys to ignore. This also allows non-english users to ignore function keys they need to press to access special characters without those keys registering as a modkey action. (Mason)
  • Many various fixes and improvements in code and documentation. big TODO cleanup

Keycmd completion plugin: This plugin for the event manager (used in uzbl-browser) completes:

  • variablenames (with '@' prefix)
  • commands
  • variablenames in the set command (without '@' prefix)
The completion plugin aims to behave as similar to bash completion as possible.
When you press 'Tab':
  • If there is only one possible completion, it will complete right away
  • Otherwise, the keycmd will expand to complete as much as possible and will show you all options when you press 'Tab' again
  • If the keyword is in the completion list and you press 'Tab' again a space will be injected into the keycmd, in the case of set completion a ' = ' will be injected instead.
