4        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
5        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
6        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
7        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges; new OpenGuides::Feed
8          module to handle feed generation (code was previously in
9          OpenGuides::RDF).
110.52    5 March 2006
12        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
13          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
14          to reflect this.
15        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
16        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
17        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
18        Fix missing bracket in
19        Add custom_node template just below main content in
20        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
21          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
22          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
23        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
24        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
25        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
26        Fix test failure with 3.16.
27        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
28        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
300.51    15 November 2005
31        Important changes:
32          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
33            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
34            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
35            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
36            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
37            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
39        New features:
40          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
41            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
42            a blank page.
43          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
44            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
45            - Show node summary in search results.
46          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
47          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
49        RDF bugfixes:
50          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
51          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
52          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
53          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
54            not the RecentChanges page URL.
56        Search bugfixes:
57          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
58            lat/lon was being used.
59          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
60            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
61            search was being done.
63        Minor improvements:
64          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
65            with spaces.
66          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
67            the old page rather than the editing view.
69        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
70          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
71          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
730.50    2 October 2005
74        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
760.49    24 July 2005
77        Add updated prerequisite on Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
78        a test failure)
800.48    24 July 2005
81        RDF enhancements:
82          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
83            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
84          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
85            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
86          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
87            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
88          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
89            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
90            applications.
91          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
92            to other nodes.
93          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
94            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
95        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
96        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
97          template
98        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
99          informing you of the fact.
100        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
101          node display.
102        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
103          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
104        Replace <label> tags in with <span
105          class="metadata_label">.
106        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
107          pointing to each node.
108        Prevent redirect loops.
109        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
1110.47    15 January 2005
112        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
113        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
114        Now require Wiki::Toolkit 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
115        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
116        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
117        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
118        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
119        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
120        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
121        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1230.46    21 December 2004
124        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
125          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
126        Update supersearch help text URL.
127        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
128        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
129          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
130        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
131        Fixed distance search paging bug.
132        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
133          trailing spaces in the name.
134        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
135          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
136          Class::Accessor.
137        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
138          is a risky activity.
139        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
140        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
141          distribution.
1430.45    1 December 2004
144        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
145        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
146          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
147          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
148          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
149          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
150          distance searches will work.
151        In less exciting news:
152          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
153          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
154          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1560.44    17 November 2004
157        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
158          not completely removed before.
159        Improved the efficiency of the search.
160        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
161          and have changed.
162        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
163        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1650.43    21 October 2004
166        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1680.42    20 October 2004
169        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
170          find_within_distance action.
171        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
172        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
173        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
174          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
175          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
176          introduced in 0.41.
177        Replace use of Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1790.41    21 September 2004
180        Added backlinks link to navbar.
181        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
182        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
183          installed as index.cgi
184        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
185        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
186          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
187          for details).
188        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
189        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
190          @RSS;username=Kake
191        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1930.40    18 September 2004
194        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
195          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
196        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
197        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
198        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
199        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
200        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
201        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
202        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
203        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
2050.39    15 September 2004
206        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
207        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
208          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
209          you will need to do two things:
210            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
211              directory) or use a different index directory
212            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
213              directory of this distribution)
2150.38    26 July 2004
216        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
217          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2190.37    23 July 2004
220        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
221          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
222          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2240.36    13 July 2004
225        Added diff link to node template.
226        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
227        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2290.35    25 June 2004
230        Forgot to add version prerequisite on Wiki::Toolkit.  Don't use 0.34,
231          use this.
2330.34    25 June 2004
234        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
235          this from the node history page.
2370.33    20 June 2004
238        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
239          the previous one or the current one.
240        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
241          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
242          for most of them.
243        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
244          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
245          by Steve Jolly).
246        Removed inline style from You will need to add
247          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
248          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
249          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
250          td#map changed to td#map_link in
251        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
252          Advanced Search).
253        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
255        Added new preference for default edit type.
256        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
257          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
258        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
259          history) pages.
2610.32    7 June 2004
262        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
263          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
264          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
265          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
266          created accidentally.
2680.31    09 May 2004
269        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
270          pages, using Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
271          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
272            @RSS []
274        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
275          Accessibility Guidelines (
276          - summaries for all HTML tables
277          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
278            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
279            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
280            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
281            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
282            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
283            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
284          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
285            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
286            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
287            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
288            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
289            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
291        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
292          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
294        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
295          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
296          - empty tags are no longer generated
297          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
298            node RDF view
299          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
300          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
301          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
302          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
303            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
304            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
305            FOAF topics)
306          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
308        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
309          SQLite databases.
311        Doc fix for private installations.
313        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
314          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
315          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
317        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
319        Reimplemented diffing using Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
320          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
321          be distributing it.
3230.30    29 December 2003
324        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
325          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
326          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
328        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
329          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
330          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
331          of navigation bar is consistent.
332          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
333          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
334          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
335          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
336          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
337          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
339        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
340          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
341          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
342          documentation you can provide.
344        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
345          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
347        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
349        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
351        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
353        Changed to use Wiki::Toolkit::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3550.29    8 November 2003
356        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
358 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
359          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
361 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3630.28    1 November 2003
364        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
366        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
367        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
368          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3700.27    1 November 2003
371        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
373        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
375        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
376        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3780.26    9 October 2003
379        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
380          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
382        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
384        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
386        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
387          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3890.25    23 September 2003
390        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
392        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
393          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
395        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
396          have been - skip them for now.
3980.24    8 September 2003
399        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
401        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
402          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
403        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
4050.23    4 August 2003
406        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
407        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
4090.22    4 August 2003
410        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
412        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
414        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
416        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
418        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
420        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
422        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
423        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4250.21    17 July 2003
426        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
427        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
428        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
429        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
431        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
432        version that didn't have unescape.
434        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
435        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
437        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
438        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
439        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
440        one, not the original one every time.
4420.20    10 July 2003
443        Fixed all the email addresses to
4450.19    10 July 2003
446        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
448        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
450        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
452        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
453          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
455        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
456        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
457        in your config file.
459        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.

4730.16    26 May 2003
474        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
476        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
477        Save button as well as the Preview one.
479        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
480        instead of decimal (requested by James).

483        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug

488        the idea.

491        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
492        us to find bugs in.
4940.13    17 May 2003
495        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
497        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
499        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
501        Added edit field for map link.
5030.12    14 May 2003
504        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
505        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
5070.11    14 May 2003
508        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
510        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
511        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
5130.10    11 May 2003
514        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
515        node versions.
517        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
518        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5200.09    10 May 2003
521        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
522        pub crawl generator.
524        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
525        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
526        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
527        process, hurrah.
5290.08    3 May 2003
530        Added fuzzy matching capability -
531          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
532        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
534        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
535        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
536        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
538        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
539        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5410.07    3 May 2003
542        Require Wiki::Toolkit 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
543        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
545        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
546        or Category Locales as appropriate.
548        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
549        grubstreet data.
551        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
552        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5540.06    2 May 2003
555        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
556        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5580.05    2 May 2003
559        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
560        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
561        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
563        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
564        I think.
566        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5680.04    29 April 2003
569        First public release.
