The initial motivation for this patch was to fix an idle performance regression. In the interim, though, we have received a bunch of feedback for improvements and a couple of feature requests.
So thanks for all of your ongoing engagement and for continuing to share VisiData with the world. We hope you enjoy this final release of 2018!
A brief overview:
options.bulk_select_clearbulk select commands (
,, etc) will clear the previously selected rows.
Shift+O once again pushes the global options sheet. You can find the sheet options by pressing
gO now opens the
.visidatarc which can be edited and saved from within the VisiData interface.
gz^now renames all visible columns to contents of selected rows and
gz*substitutes over all visible columns
As usual, the complete list of changes can be found in the Changelog.
