10.38    26 July 2004
2        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
3          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
4
50.37    23 July 2004
6        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
7          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
8          avoid escapeHTML bug.
9
100.36    13 July 2004
11        Added diff link to node template. Fixed case sensitivity bug in
12          index node autocreation.  Fixed bug with node history comments
13          not being HTML-escaped.
14
150.35    25 June 2004
16        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
17          use this.
18
190.34    25 June 2004
20        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
21          this from the node history page.
22
230.33    20 June 2004
24        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
25          the previous one or the current one.
26        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
27          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
28          for most of them.
29        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
30          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
31          by Steve Jolly).
32        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
33          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
34          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
35          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
36          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
37        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
38          Advanced Search).
39        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
40          OpenGuides.pm.
41        Added new preference for default edit type.
42        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
43          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
44        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
45          history) pages.
46
470.32    7 June 2004
48        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
49          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
50          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
51          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
52          created accidentally.
53
540.31    09 May 2004
55        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
56          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
57          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
58            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
59       
60        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
61          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
62          - summaries for all HTML tables
63          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
64            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
65            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
66            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
67            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
68            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
69            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
70          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
71            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
72            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
73            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
74            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
75            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
76
77        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
78          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
79
80        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
81          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
82          - empty tags are no longer generated
83          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
84            node RDF view
85          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
86          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
87          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
88          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
89            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
90            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
91            FOAF topics)
92          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
93
94        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
95          SQLite databases.
96
97        Doc fix for private installations.
98
99        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
100          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
101          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
102
103        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
104
105        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
106          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
107          be distributing it.
108
1090.30    29 December 2003
110        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
111          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
112          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
113
114        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
115          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
116          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
117          of navigation bar is consistent.
118          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
119          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
120          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
121          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
122          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
123          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
124
125        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
126          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
127          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
128          documentation you can provide.
129
130        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
131          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
132
133        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
134
135        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
136
137        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
138
139        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
140
1410.29    8 November 2003
142        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
143
144        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
145          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
146
147        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
148
1490.28    1 November 2003
150        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
151
152        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
153        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
154          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
155
1560.27    1 November 2003
157        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
158
159        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
160
161        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
162        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
163
1640.26    9 October 2003
165        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
166          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
167
168        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
169
170        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
171
172        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
173          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
174
1750.25    23 September 2003
176        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
177
178        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
179          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
180
181        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
182          have been - skip them for now.
183
1840.24    8 September 2003
185        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
186
187        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
188          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
189        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
190
1910.23    4 August 2003
192        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
193        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
194
1950.22    4 August 2003
196        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
197
198        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
199
200        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
201
202        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
203
204        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
205
206        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
207
208        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
209        footer (CPAN request 3110).
210
2110.21    17 July 2003
212        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
213        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
214        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
215        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
216
217        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
218        version that didn't have unescape.
219
220        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
221        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
222
223        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
224        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
225        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
226        one, not the original one every time.
227
2280.20    10 July 2003
229        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
230
2310.19    10 July 2003
232        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
233
234        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
235
236        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
237
238        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
239          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
240
241        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
242        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
243        in your config file.
244
245        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
246
247        Implemented minor edits.
248
249        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
250
2510.18    16 June 2003
252        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
253
2540.17    15 June 2003
255        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
256 
257        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
258
2590.16    26 May 2003
260        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
261
262        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
263        Save button as well as the Preview one.
264
265        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
266        instead of decimal (requested by James).
267
2680.15    18 May 2003
269        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
270        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
271
2720.14    17 May 2003
273        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
274        the idea.
275
276        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
277        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
278        us to find bugs in.
279
2800.13    17 May 2003
281        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
282 
283        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
284
285        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
286
287        Added edit field for map link.
288
2890.12    14 May 2003
290        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
291        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
292
2930.11    14 May 2003
294        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
295
296        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
297        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
298
2990.10    11 May 2003
300        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
301        node versions.
302
303        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
304        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
305
3060.09    10 May 2003
307        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
308        pub crawl generator.
309
310        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
311        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
312        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
313        process, hurrah.
314
3150.08    3 May 2003
316        Added fuzzy matching capability -
317          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
318        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
319
320        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
321        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
322        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
323
324        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
325        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
326
3270.07    3 May 2003
328        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
329        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
330
331        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
332        or Category Locales as appropriate.
333
334        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
335        grubstreet data.
336
337        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
338        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
339
3400.06    2 May 2003
341        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
342        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
343
3440.05    2 May 2003
345        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
346        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
347        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
348
349        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
350        I think.
351
352        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
353
3540.04    29 April 2003
355        First public release.
