1        Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
2
30.44    17 November 2004
4        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
5          not completely removed before.
6        Improved the efficiency of the search.
7        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
8          and supersearch.tt have changed.
9        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
10        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
11
120.43    21 October 2004
13        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
14
150.42    20 October 2004
16        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
17          find_within_distance action.
18        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
19        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
20        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
21          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
22          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
23          introduced in 0.41.
24        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
25
260.41    21 September 2004
27        Added backlinks link to navbar.
28        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
29        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
30          installed as index.cgi
31        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
32        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
33          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
34          for details).
35        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
36        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
37          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
38        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
39
400.40    18 September 2004
41        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
42          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
43        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
44        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
45        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
46        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
47        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
48        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
49        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
50        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
51
520.39    15 September 2004
53        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
54        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
55          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
56          you will need to do two things:
57            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
58              directory) or use a different index directory
59            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
60              directory of this distribution)
61
620.38    26 July 2004
63        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
64          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
65
660.37    23 July 2004
67        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
68          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
69          avoid escapeHTML bug.
70
710.36    13 July 2004
72        Added diff link to node template.
73        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
74        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
75
760.35    25 June 2004
77        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
78          use this.
79
800.34    25 June 2004
81        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
82          this from the node history page.
83
840.33    20 June 2004
85        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
86          the previous one or the current one.
87        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
88          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
89          for most of them.
90        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
91          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
92          by Steve Jolly).
93        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
94          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
95          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
96          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
97          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
98        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
99          Advanced Search).
100        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
101          OpenGuides.pm.
102        Added new preference for default edit type.
103        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
104          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
105        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
106          history) pages.
107
1080.32    7 June 2004
109        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
110          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
111          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
112          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
113          created accidentally.
114
1150.31    09 May 2004
116        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
117          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
118          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
119            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
120       
121        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
122          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
123          - summaries for all HTML tables
124          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
125            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
126            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
127            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
128            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
129            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
130            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
131          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
132            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
133            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
134            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
135            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
136            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
137
138        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
139          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
140
141        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
142          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
143          - empty tags are no longer generated
144          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
145            node RDF view
146          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
147          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
148          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
149          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
150            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
151            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
152            FOAF topics)
153          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
154
155        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
156          SQLite databases.
157
158        Doc fix for private installations.
159
160        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
161          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
162          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
163
164        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
165
166        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
167          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
168          be distributing it.
169
1700.30    29 December 2003
171        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
172          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
173          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
174
175        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
176          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
177          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
178          of navigation bar is consistent.
179          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
180          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
181          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
182          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
183          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
184          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
185
186        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
187          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
188          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
189          documentation you can provide.
190
191        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
192          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
193
194        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
195
196        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
197
198        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
199
200        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
201
2020.29    8 November 2003
203        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
204
205        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
206          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
207
208        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
209
2100.28    1 November 2003
211        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
212
213        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
214        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
215          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
216
2170.27    1 November 2003
218        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
219
220        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
221
222        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
223        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
224
2250.26    9 October 2003
226        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
227          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
228
229        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
230
231        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
232
233        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
234          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
235
2360.25    23 September 2003
237        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
238
239        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
240          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
241
242        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
243          have been - skip them for now.
244
2450.24    8 September 2003
246        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
247
248        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
249          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
250        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
251
2520.23    4 August 2003
253        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
254        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
255
2560.22    4 August 2003
257        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
258
259        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
260
261        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
262
263        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
264
265        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
266
267        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
268
269        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
270        footer (CPAN request 3110).
271
2720.21    17 July 2003
273        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
274        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
275        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
276        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
277
278        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
279        version that didn't have unescape.
280
281        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
282        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
283
284        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
285        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
286        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
287        one, not the original one every time.
288
2890.20    10 July 2003
290        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
291
2920.19    10 July 2003
293        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
294
295        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
296
297        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
298
299        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
300          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
301
302        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
303        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
304        in your config file.
305
306        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
307
308        Implemented minor edits.
309
310        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
311
3120.18    16 June 2003
313        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
314
3150.17    15 June 2003
316        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
317 
318        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
319
3200.16    26 May 2003
321        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
322
323        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
324        Save button as well as the Preview one.
325
326        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
327        instead of decimal (requested by James).
328
3290.15    18 May 2003
330        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
331        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
332
3330.14    17 May 2003
334        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
335        the idea.
336
337        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
338        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
339        us to find bugs in.
340
3410.13    17 May 2003
342        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
343 
344        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
345
346        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
347
348        Added edit field for map link.
349
3500.12    14 May 2003
351        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
352        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
353
3540.11    14 May 2003
355        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
356
357        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
358        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
359
3600.10    11 May 2003
361        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
362        node versions.
363
364        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
365        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
366
3670.09    10 May 2003
368        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
369        pub crawl generator.
370
371        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
372        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
373        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
374        process, hurrah.
375
3760.08    3 May 2003
377        Added fuzzy matching capability -
378          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
379        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
380
381        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
382        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
383        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
384
385        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
386        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
387
3880.07    3 May 2003
389        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
390        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
391
392        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
393        or Category Locales as appropriate.
394
395        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
396        grubstreet data.
397
398        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
399        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
400
4010.06    2 May 2003
402        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
403        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
404
4050.05    2 May 2003
406        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
407        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
408        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
409
410        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
411        I think.
412
413        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
414
4150.04    29 April 2003
416        First public release.
