2        Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
3
40.44    17 November 2004
5        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
6          not completely removed before.
7        Improved the efficiency of the search.
8        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
9          and supersearch.tt have changed.
10        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
11        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
12
130.43    21 October 2004
14        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
15
160.42    20 October 2004
17        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
18          find_within_distance action.
19        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
20        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
21        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
22          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
23          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
24          introduced in 0.41.
25        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
26

28        Added backlinks link to navbar.

31          installed as index.cgi
32        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
33        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
34          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
35          for details).
36        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
37        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
38          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
39        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
40
410.40    18 September 2004
42        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
43          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
44        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
45        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
46        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
47        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
48        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
49        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
50        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
51        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
52
530.39    15 September 2004
54        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
55        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
56          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
57          you will need to do two things:
58            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
59              directory) or use a different index directory
60            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
61              directory of this distribution)
62
630.38    26 July 2004
64        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
65          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
66
670.37    23 July 2004
68        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
69          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
70          avoid escapeHTML bug.
71
720.36    13 July 2004
73        Added diff link to node template.
74        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
75        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
76
770.35    25 June 2004
78        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
79          use this.
80
810.34    25 June 2004
82        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
83          this from the node history page.
84
850.33    20 June 2004
86        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
87          the previous one or the current one.
88        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
89          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
90          for most of them.
91        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
92          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
93          by Steve Jolly).
94        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
95          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
96          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
97          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
98          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
99        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
100          Advanced Search).
101        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
102          OpenGuides.pm.
103        Added new preference for default edit type.
104        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
105          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
106        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
107          history) pages.
108
1090.32    7 June 2004
110        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
111          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
112          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
113          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
114          created accidentally.
115
1160.31    09 May 2004
117        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
118          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
119          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
120            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
121       
122        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
123          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
124          - summaries for all HTML tables
125          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
126            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
127            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
128            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
129            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
130            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
131            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
132          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
133            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
134            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
135            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
136            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
137            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
138
139        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
140          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
141
142        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
143          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
144          - empty tags are no longer generated
145          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
146            node RDF view
147          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
148          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
149          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
150          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
151            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
152            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
153            FOAF topics)
154          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
155
156        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
157          SQLite databases.
158
159        Doc fix for private installations.
160
161        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
162          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
163          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
164
165        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
166
167        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
168          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
169          be distributing it.
170
1710.30    29 December 2003
172        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
173          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
174          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
175
176        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
177          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
178          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
179          of navigation bar is consistent.
180          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
181          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
182          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
183          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
184          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
185          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
186
187        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
188          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
189          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
190          documentation you can provide.
191
192        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
193          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
194
195        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
196
197        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
198
199        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
200
201        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
202
2030.29    8 November 2003
204        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
205
206        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
207          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
208
209        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
210
2110.28    1 November 2003
212        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
213
214        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
215        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
216          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
217
2180.27    1 November 2003
219        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
220
221        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
222
223        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
224        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
225
2260.26    9 October 2003
227        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
228          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
229
230        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
231
232        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
233
234        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
235          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
236
2370.25    23 September 2003
238        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
239
240        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
241          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
242
243        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
244          have been - skip them for now.
245
2460.24    8 September 2003
247        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
248
249        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
250          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
251        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
252
2530.23    4 August 2003
254        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
255        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
256
2570.22    4 August 2003
258        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
259
260        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
261
262        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
263
264        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
265
266        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
267
268        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
269
270        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
271        footer (CPAN request 3110).
272
2730.21    17 July 2003
274        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
275        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
276        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
277        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
278
279        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
280        version that didn't have unescape.
281
282        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
283        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
284
285        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
286        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
287        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
288        one, not the original one every time.
289
2900.20    10 July 2003
291        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
292
2930.19    10 July 2003
294        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
295
296        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
297
298        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
299
300        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
301          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
302
303        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
304        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
305        in your config file.
306
307        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
308
309        Implemented minor edits.
310
311        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
312
3130.18    16 June 2003
314        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
315
3160.17    15 June 2003
317        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
318 
319        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
320
3210.16    26 May 2003
322        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
323
324        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
325        Save button as well as the Preview one.
326
327        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
328        instead of decimal (requested by James).
329
3300.15    18 May 2003
331        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
332        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
333
3340.14    17 May 2003
335        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
336        the idea.
337
338        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
339        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
340        us to find bugs in.
341
3420.13    17 May 2003
343        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
344 
345        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
346
347        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
348
349        Added edit field for map link.
350
3510.12    14 May 2003
352        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
353        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
354
3550.11    14 May 2003
356        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
357
358        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
359        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
360
3610.10    11 May 2003
362        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
363        node versions.
364
365        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
366        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
367
3680.09    10 May 2003
369        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
370        pub crawl generator.
371
372        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
373        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
374        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
375        process, hurrah.
376
3770.08    3 May 2003
378        Added fuzzy matching capability -
379          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
380        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
381
382        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
383        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
384        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
385
386        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
387        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
388
3890.07    3 May 2003
390        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
391        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
392
393        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
394        or Category Locales as appropriate.
395
396        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
397        grubstreet data.
398
399        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
400        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
401
4020.06    2 May 2003
403        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
404        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
405
4060.05    2 May 2003
407        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
408        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
409        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
410
411        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
412        I think.
413
414        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
415
4160.04    29 April 2003
417        First public release.
