  `inline', `dedicated'.

  • Add the `gnuplot-use-context-sensitive-completion' configuration

  • Removed the `gnuplot-bug-report' function.

3 Version 7.0 (Oct 20th 2012)

  • Contextual completion & help, inline plots, some other stuff.

4 Version 6.0 (Dec 13th 2011)

  • Changed numbering scheme to accommodate gnuplot packaging
  • Moved to github, updated contact info.

5 Version 5.0 (Sep 16th 2002)

  • Wrote initial draft of gnuplot-gui.el, included it in insertions
    menu and in `gnuplot-insert'. Negate option function, bound to `C-c

  • `C-c C-h' with no response goes to Commands menu. Transparent
    toolbar icons. Replace kw-compl with a simple completion
    function. Put gnuplot-toolbar code in gnuplot.el.

  • Send file uses the load command. add `gnuplot-plot-from-comint' and
    `gnuplot-save-and-plot-from-comint' and keybindings in the comint
    buffer. do `(process-kill-without-query gnuplot-process nil)'.
    `gnuplot-negate-option' checks if set option has a negated form.

  • `gnuplot-kill-gnuplot-buffer' made more robust. fixed a bug in
    `gnuplot-plot-from-comint'. fixed description of gnuplot-faces

  • Update copyright information, update gpelcard

  • Change installation materials. Add some support for hidden3d. Use
    constants in types alists in gui. Various other minor improvements
    to the types alists.

  • Removed `gnuplot-which-highlight' variable and revamped how
    colorization gets turned on. This is a bit tricky since I want it to
    work with font-lock under emacs and xemacs and with hilit19.

  • Insert space at end of unique completion. add a few GUI types,
    rewrite some stuff in the GUI interface. primitive support for plot,
    splot, and fit. Fixed completion in file widget.

  • Add `pgnuplot.c' and Win9x install instructions to the distribution.
    Fixed a defface bug. Added `gnuplot-keywords-when' allowing deferral
    of parsing the info file.

  • Fixed font-locking of strings and comments. Figure out
    `gnuplot-version' number from startup message and set
    `gnuplot-echo-command-line-flag' accordingly. Added
    `gnuplot-program-version' variable. Check that font-lock is actually
    a feature.

  • Added `gnuplot-determine-gnuplot-version' so that the gnuplot
    version number and `comint-process-echos' actually get set
    correctly. Actually, the first time something is plotted, the
    echoing might not work, but the second time it will.

  • Once again changed how `comint-process-echos' gets set. Maybe I got
    it right this time? Also fixed certain situations where the info
    file did notget properly loaded (insertion with info toggle on and
    info button in GUI).

  • Do a more robust check for the gnuplot process before killing the
    gnuplot buffer.
