2        Added backlinks link to navbar.
3        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
4
50.40    18 September 2004
6        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
7          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
8        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
9        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
10        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
11        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
12        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
13        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
14        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
15        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
16
170.39    15 September 2004
18        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
19        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
20          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
21          you will need to do two things:
22            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
23              directory) or use a different index directory
24            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
25              directory of this distribution)
26
270.38    26 July 2004
28        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
29          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
30
310.37    23 July 2004
32        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
33          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
34          avoid escapeHTML bug.
35
360.36    13 July 2004
37        Added diff link to node template. Fixed case sensitivity bug in
38          index node autocreation.  Fixed bug with node history comments
39          not being HTML-escaped.
40
410.35    25 June 2004
42        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
43          use this.
44
450.34    25 June 2004
46        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
47          this from the node history page.
48
490.33    20 June 2004
50        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
51          the previous one or the current one.
52        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
53          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
54          for most of them.
55        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
56          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
57          by Steve Jolly).
58        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
59          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
60          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
61          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
62          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
63        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
64          Advanced Search).
65        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
66          OpenGuides.pm.
67        Added new preference for default edit type.
68        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
69          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
70        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
71          history) pages.
72
730.32    7 June 2004
74        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
75          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
76          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
77          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
78          created accidentally.
79
800.31    09 May 2004
81        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
82          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
83          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
84            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
85       
86        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
87          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
88          - summaries for all HTML tables
89          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
90            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
91            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
92            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
93            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
94            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
95            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
96          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
97            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
98            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
99            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
100            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
101            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
102
103        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
104          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
105
106        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
107          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
108          - empty tags are no longer generated
109          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
110            node RDF view
111          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
112          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
113          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
114          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
115            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
116            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
117            FOAF topics)
118          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
119
120        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
121          SQLite databases.
122
123        Doc fix for private installations.
124
125        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
126          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
127          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
128
129        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
130
131        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
132          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
133          be distributing it.
134
1350.30    29 December 2003
136        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
137          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
138          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
139
140        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
141          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
142          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
143          of navigation bar is consistent.
144          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
145          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
146          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
147          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
148          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
149          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
150
151        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
152          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
153          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
154          documentation you can provide.
155
156        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
157          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
158
159        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
160
161        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
162
163        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
164
165        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
166
1670.29    8 November 2003
168        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
169
170        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
171          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
172
173        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
174
1750.28    1 November 2003
176        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
177
178        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
179        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
180          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
181
1820.27    1 November 2003
183        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
184
185        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
186
187        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
188        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
189
1900.26    9 October 2003
191        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
192          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
193
194        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
195
196        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
197
198        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
199          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
200
2010.25    23 September 2003
202        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
203
204        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
205          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
206
207        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
208          have been - skip them for now.
209
2100.24    8 September 2003
211        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
212
213        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
214          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
215        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
216
2170.23    4 August 2003
218        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
219        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
220
2210.22    4 August 2003
222        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
223
224        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
225
226        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
227
228        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
229
230        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
231
232        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
233
234        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
235        footer (CPAN request 3110).
236
2370.21    17 July 2003
238        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
239        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
240        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
241        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
242
243        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
244        version that didn't have unescape.
245
246        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
247        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
248
249        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
250        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
251        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
252        one, not the original one every time.
253
2540.20    10 July 2003
255        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
256
2570.19    10 July 2003
258        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
259
260        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
261
262        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
263
264        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
265          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
266
267        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
268        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
269        in your config file.
270
271        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
272
273        Implemented minor edits.
274
275        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
276
2770.18    16 June 2003
278        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
279
2800.17    15 June 2003
281        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
282 
283        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
284
2850.16    26 May 2003
286        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
287
288        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
289        Save button as well as the Preview one.
290
291        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
292        instead of decimal (requested by James).
293
2940.15    18 May 2003
295        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
296        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
297
2980.14    17 May 2003
299        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
300        the idea.
301
302        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
303        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
304        us to find bugs in.
305
3060.13    17 May 2003
307        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
308 
309        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
310
311        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
312
313        Added edit field for map link.
314
3150.12    14 May 2003
316        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
317        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
318
3190.11    14 May 2003
320        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
321
322        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
323        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
324
3250.10    11 May 2003
326        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
327        node versions.
328
329        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
330        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
331
3320.09    10 May 2003
333        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
334        pub crawl generator.
335
336        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
337        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
338        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
339        process, hurrah.
340
3410.08    3 May 2003
342        Added fuzzy matching capability -
343          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
344        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
345
346        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
347        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
348        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
349
350        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
351        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
352
3530.07    3 May 2003
354        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
355        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
356
357        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
358        or Category Locales as appropriate.
359
360        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
361        grubstreet data.
362
363        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
364        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
365
3660.06    2 May 2003
367        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
368        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
369
3700.05    2 May 2003
371        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
372        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
373        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
374
375        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
376        I think.
377
378        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
379
3800.04    29 April 2003
381        First public release.
