Add a Cocoa frontend for xC
Some work remains to be done to get it to be even as good
as the Win32 frontend, but it's generally usable.

xP/xW: fix buffer rename handling
Maintaining string pointers to the current/last buffer
means that renames invalidate them.

xW: make Up/Down go through input history
The input field isn't multiline, so this doesn't pose an issue.
Otherwise, we'd have to check if we're on the top line first.

xP: make Page Up/Down in editor scroll the buffer
Just like in xW recently.  It is unlikely that the user would want
to use these keys to move the cursor.  Ctrl+Home/End still work,
as does holding Up/Down arrows.

Also stop using the deprecated and somewhat cryptic keyCode.

Add a Win32 frontend for xC
This has been more of an exercise.  The performance of Msftedit.dll
is rather abysmal, and its interface isn't the most accomodating.

That said, the frontend is quite usable, at least on Windows 10+.

Move project version to file, add xS manual page
So far Go applications remain independent to handle Nix's inability
to easily combine them with the CMake part.

There is also no "install" target, because any packagers will want to
adjust installation paths manually, and there is no configure step.

Give up on the X11 frontend for now

compared to xP, making it barely worth the effort:

 - saner keyboard controls,
 - GVIM integration,
 - slightly improved resource usage.

xP: use the binary protocol for incoming events
And batch event messages together as much as possible.

JSON has proven itself to be really slow
(for example, encoding/json.Marshaler is a slow interface),
and browsers have significant overhead per WS message.

Commands are still sent as JSON, sending them in binary
would be a laborious rewrite without measurable merits.

The xP server now only prints debug output when requested,
because that was another source of major slowdowns.

Start X11 and web frontends for xC
For this, we needed a wire protocol.  After surveying available options,
it was decided to implement an XDR-like protocol code generator
in portable AWK.  It now has two backends, per each of:

 - xF, the X11 frontend, is in C, and is meant to be the primary
   user interface in the future.

 - xP, the web frontend, relies on a protocol proxy written in Go,
   and is meant for use on-the-go (no pun intended).

They are very much work-in-progress proofs of concept right now,
and the relay protocol is certain to change.

xC: improve backlog helper capabilities
Snippets now receive positional parameters in the form of the buffer's
name in the locale encoding, and a filename if applicable
(we keep passing stdin along with the filename, which happens to
work out well for less(1)).

The default value of the configuration option also no longer uses
the "long prompt", which used to unhelpfully tell position in terms
of lines, but rather sets its own prompt that counts pages,
and makes sure to indicate the source buffer.

The main motivation behind this change is to make the 'v' command
work in less(1).  LESSSECURE must be omitted from the snippet
for this to work.

Bump liberty to receive a config parser that allows for less
convoluted escaping.

The unreasonable IRC trinity. This project consists of an IRC client, daemon,
and bot. It's all you're ever going to need for chatting, as long as you can
make do with minimalist software.
'xK' (chat kit) is an IRC software suite consisting of a daemon, bot, notifier,
terminal client, and web/Windows/macOS frontends for the client. It's all
you're ever going to need for chatting, so long as you can make do with slightly
minimalist software.
They have these potentially interesting properties:
- supporting IRCv3, SOCKS, IPv6, TLS (including client certificates)
- lean on dependencies
- compact and arguably easy to hack on
- maximally permissive license
They're all lean on dependencies, and offer a maximally permissive licence.

The IRC client, and the core of 'xK'. It is largely defined by building on top
of GNU Readline or BSD Editline that have been hacked to death. Its interface
should feel somewhat familiar for weechat or irssi users.
This is the core of the project. It has most of the stuff you'd expect of
an IRC client, such as being multiserver, a powerful configuration system,
integrated help, text formatting, automatic splitting of overlong messages,
multiline editing, bracketed paste support, decent word wrapping, autocomplete,
logging, CTCP queries, auto-away, command aliases, and basic support for Lua
scripting. As a unique bonus, you can launch a full text editor from within.

The web frontend for 'xC', making use of its networked relay interface.
It intentionally differs in that it uses a sans-serif font, and it shows
the list of all buffers in a side panel. Otherwise it is a near replica,
including link:xC.adoc#_key_bindings[keyboard shortcuts].

The IRC daemon. It is designed for use as a regular user application rather
than a system-wide daemon, and follows the XDG Base Directory Specification.
If all you want is a decent, minimal IRCd for testing purposes or a small
network of respectful users (or bots), this one will do it just fine.
Notable features:
It autodetects TLS on incoming connections (I'm still wondering why everyone
doesn't have this), authenticates operators via TLS client certificate
fingerprints, and supports a number of IRCv3 capabilities.
- TLS autodetection (I'm still wondering why everyone doesn't have this)
- IRCop authentication via TLS client certificates
- partial IRCv3 support
What it notably doesn't support is online changes to configuration, any limits
besides the total number of connections and mode `+l`, or server linking
(which also means no services).
Not supported:
The IRC daemon again, this time ported to Go, additionally supporting WEBIRC,
and thus ideal for pairing with, e.g.,[].
Any further development, such as P10 or TS6 linking for IRC services,
or plugin support for arbitrary bridges, will happen here.
- server linking (which also means no services); I consider existing protocols
for this purpose ugly and tricky to implement correctly; I've also found no
use for this feature yet
- online changes to configuration; the configuration system from 'xC' could
be used to implement this feature if needed
- limits of almost any kind, just connections and mode `+l`

file or something like `killall` if you want to terminate it. You can run it
as a `forking` type systemd user service.
The precondition for running 'xC' frontends is enabling its relay interface:
/set general.relay_bind = ""
To build the web server, you'll need to install the Go compiler, and run `make`
from the _xP_ directory. Then start it from the _public_ subdirectory,
and navigate to the adress you gave it as its first argument--in the following
example, that would be http://localhost:8080[]:
$ ../xP
For remote use, it's recommended to put 'xP' behind a reverse proxy, with TLS,
and some form of HTTP authentication. Pass the external URL of the WebSocket
endpoint as the third command line argument in this case.
The Win32 frontend is a separate CMake subproject that should be compiled
using MinGW-w64. To avoid having to specify the relay address each time you
run it, create a shortcut for the executable and include the address in its
_Target_ field:
C:\...\xW.exe 9000
It works reasonably well starting with Windows 7.
The Cocoa frontend is a separate CMake subproject that requires Xcode to build.
It is currently not that usable. The relay address can either be passed on
the command line, or preset in the _defaults_ database:
$ defaults write name.janouch.xM relayHost
$ defaults write name.janouch.xM relayPort 9000
Client Certificates
'xC' will use the SASL EXTERNAL method to authenticate using the TLS client
certificate specified by the respective server's `tls_cert` option if you add
`sasl` to the `capabilities` option and the server supports this.
'xD' uses SHA-1 fingerprints of TLS client certificates to authenticate users.
To get the fingerprint from a certificate file in the required form, use:
'xD' and 'xS' use SHA-256 fingerprints of TLS client certificates
to authenticate users. To get the fingerprint from a certificate file
in the required form, use:
$ openssl x509 -in public.pem -outform DER | sha1sum
$ openssl x509 -in public.pem -outform DER | sha256sum

How do I make xC look like the screenshot?
First of all, you must build it with Lua support. With the defaults, 'xC'
doesn't look too fancy because I don't want to depend on Lua or 256-colour
terminals. In addition to that, I appear to be one of the few people who use
black on white terminals.
With the defaults, 'xC' doesn't look too fancy because I don't want to have
a hard dependency on either Lua for the bundled script that provides an easily
adjustable enhanced prompt, or on 256-colour terminals. Moreover, it's nearly
impossible to come up with a colour theme that would work well with both
black-on-white and white-on-black terminals, or anything wild in between.

Assuming that your build supports Lua plugins, and that you have a decent,
properly set-up terminal emulator, it suffices to run:
/set general.pager = Press Tab here and change +Gb to +Gb1d
