2        Added backlinks link to navbar.
3        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.

5          installed as index.cgi
6        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
7
80.40    18 September 2004
9        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
10          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
11        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
12        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
13        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
14        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
15        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
16        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
17        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
18        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
19
200.39    15 September 2004
21        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
22        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
23          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
24          you will need to do two things:
25            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
26              directory) or use a different index directory
27            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
28              directory of this distribution)
29
300.38    26 July 2004
31        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
32          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
33
340.37    23 July 2004
35        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
36          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
37          avoid escapeHTML bug.
38
390.36    13 July 2004
40        Added diff link to node template. Fixed case sensitivity bug in
41          index node autocreation.  Fixed bug with node history comments
42          not being HTML-escaped.
43
440.35    25 June 2004
45        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
46          use this.
47
480.34    25 June 2004
49        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
50          this from the node history page.
51
520.33    20 June 2004
53        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
54          the previous one or the current one.
55        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
56          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
57          for most of them.
58        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
59          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
60          by Steve Jolly).
61        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
62          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
63          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
64          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
65          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
66        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
67          Advanced Search).
68        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
69          OpenGuides.pm.
70        Added new preference for default edit type.
71        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
72          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
73        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
74          history) pages.
75
760.32    7 June 2004
77        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
78          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
79          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
80          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
81          created accidentally.
82
830.31    09 May 2004
84        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
85          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
86          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
87            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
88       
89        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
90          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
91          - summaries for all HTML tables
92          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
93            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
94            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
95            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
96            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
97            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
98            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
99          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
100            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
101            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
102            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
103            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
104            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
105
106        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
107          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
108
109        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
110          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
111          - empty tags are no longer generated
112          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
113            node RDF view
114          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
115          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
116          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
117          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
118            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
119            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
120            FOAF topics)
121          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
122
123        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
124          SQLite databases.
125
126        Doc fix for private installations.
127
128        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
129          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
130          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
131
132        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
133
134        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
135          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
136          be distributing it.
137
1380.30    29 December 2003
139        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
140          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
141          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
142
143        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
144          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
145          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
146          of navigation bar is consistent.
147          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
148          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
149          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
150          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
151          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
152          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
153
154        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
155          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
156          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
157          documentation you can provide.
158
159        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
160          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
161
162        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
163
164        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
165
166        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
167
168        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
169
1700.29    8 November 2003
171        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
172
173        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
174          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
175
176        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
177
1780.28    1 November 2003
179        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
180
181        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
182        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
183          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
184
1850.27    1 November 2003
186        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
187
188        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
189
190        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
191        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
192
1930.26    9 October 2003
194        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
195          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
196
197        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
198
199        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
200
201        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
202          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
203
2040.25    23 September 2003
205        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
206
207        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
208          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
209
210        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
211          have been - skip them for now.
212
2130.24    8 September 2003
214        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
215
216        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
217          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
218        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
219
2200.23    4 August 2003
221        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
222        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
223
2240.22    4 August 2003
225        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
226
227        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
228
229        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
230
231        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
232
233        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
234
235        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
236
237        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
238        footer (CPAN request 3110).
239
2400.21    17 July 2003
241        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
242        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
243        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
244        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
245
246        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
247        version that didn't have unescape.
248
249        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
250        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
251
252        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
253        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
254        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
255        one, not the original one every time.
256
2570.20    10 July 2003
258        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
259
2600.19    10 July 2003
261        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
262
263        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
264
265        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
266
267        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
268          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
269
270        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
271        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
272        in your config file.
273
274        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
275
276        Implemented minor edits.
277
278        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
279
2800.18    16 June 2003
281        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
282
2830.17    15 June 2003
284        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
285 
286        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
287
2880.16    26 May 2003
289        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
290
291        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
292        Save button as well as the Preview one.
293
294        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
295        instead of decimal (requested by James).
296
2970.15    18 May 2003
298        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
299        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
300
3010.14    17 May 2003
302        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
303        the idea.
304
305        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
306        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
307        us to find bugs in.
308
3090.13    17 May 2003
310        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
311 
312        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
313
314        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
315
316        Added edit field for map link.
317
3180.12    14 May 2003
319        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
320        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
321
3220.11    14 May 2003
323        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
324
325        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
326        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
327
3280.10    11 May 2003
329        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
330        node versions.
331
332        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
333        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
334
3350.09    10 May 2003
336        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
337        pub crawl generator.
338
339        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
340        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
341        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
342        process, hurrah.
343
3440.08    3 May 2003
345        Added fuzzy matching capability -
346          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
347        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
348
349        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
350        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
351        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
352
353        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
354        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
355
3560.07    3 May 2003
357        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
358        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
359
360        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
361        or Category Locales as appropriate.
362
363        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
364        grubstreet data.
365
366        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
367        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
368
3690.06    2 May 2003
370        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
371        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
372
3730.05    2 May 2003
374        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
375        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
376        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
377
378        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
379        I think.
380
381        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
382
3830.04    29 April 2003
384        First public release.
