10.45    1 December 2004
2        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
3        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
4          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
5          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
6          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
7          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
8          distance searches will work.
9        In less exciting news:
10          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
11          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
12          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
140.44    17 November 2004
15        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
16          not completely removed before.
17        Improved the efficiency of the search.
18        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
19          and have changed.
20        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
21        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
230.43    21 October 2004
24        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
260.42    20 October 2004
27        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
28          find_within_distance action.
29        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
30        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
31        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
32          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
33          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
34          introduced in 0.41.
35        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
370.41    21 September 2004
38        Added backlinks link to navbar.
39        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
40        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
41          installed as index.cgi
42        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
43        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
44          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
45          for details).
46        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
47        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
48          @RSS;username=Kake
49        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
510.40    18 September 2004
52        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
53          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
54        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
55        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
56        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
57        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
58        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
59        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
60        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
61        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
630.39    15 September 2004
64        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
65        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
66          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
67          you will need to do two things:
68            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
69              directory) or use a different index directory
70            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
71              directory of this distribution)
730.38    26 July 2004
74        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
75          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
770.37    23 July 2004
78        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
79          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
80          avoid escapeHTML bug.
820.36    13 July 2004
83        Added diff link to node template.
84        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
85        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
870.35    25 June 2004
88        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
89          use this.
910.34    25 June 2004
92        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
93          this from the node history page.
950.33    20 June 2004
96        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
97          the previous one or the current one.
98        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
99          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
100          for most of them.
101        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
102          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
103          by Steve Jolly).
104        Removed inline style from You will need to add
105          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
106          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
107          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
108          td#map changed to td#map_link in
109        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
110          Advanced Search).
111        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
113        Added new preference for default edit type.
114        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
115          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
116        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
117          history) pages.
1190.32    7 June 2004
120        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
121          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
122          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
123          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
124          created accidentally.
1260.31    09 May 2004
127        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
128          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
129          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
130            @RSS []
132        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
133          Accessibility Guidelines (
134          - summaries for all HTML tables
135          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
136            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
137            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
138            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
139            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
140            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
141            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
142          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
143            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
144            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
145            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
146            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
147            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
149        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
150          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
152        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
153          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
154          - empty tags are no longer generated
155          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
156            node RDF view
157          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
158          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
159          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
160          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
161            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
162            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
163            FOAF topics)
164          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
166        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
167          SQLite databases.
169        Doc fix for private installations.
171        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
172          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
173          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
175        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
177        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
178          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
179          be distributing it.
1810.30    29 December 2003
182        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
183          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
184          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
186        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
187          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
188          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
189          of navigation bar is consistent.
190          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
191          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
192          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
193          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
194          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
195          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
197        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
198          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
199          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
200          documentation you can provide.
202        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
203          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
205        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
207        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
209        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
211        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2130.29    8 November 2003
214        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
216 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
217          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
219 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
2210.28    1 November 2003
222        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
224        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
225        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
226          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
2280.27    1 November 2003
229        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
231        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
233        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
234        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
2360.26    9 October 2003
237        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
238          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
240        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
242        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
244        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
245          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
2470.25    23 September 2003
248        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
250        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
251          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
253        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
254          have been - skip them for now.
2560.24    8 September 2003
257        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
259        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
260          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
261        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
2630.23    4 August 2003
264        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
265        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
2670.22    4 August 2003
268        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
270        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
272        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
274        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
276        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
278        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
280        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
281        footer (CPAN request 3110).
2830.21    17 July 2003
284        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
285        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
286        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
287        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
289        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
290        version that didn't have unescape.
292        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
293        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
295        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
296        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
297        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
298        one, not the original one every time.
3000.20    10 July 2003
301        Fixed all the email addresses to
3030.19    10 July 2003
304        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
306        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
308        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
310        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
311          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
313        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
314        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
315        in your config file.
317        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
319        Implemented minor edits.
321        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
3230.18    16 June 2003
324        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
3260.17    15 June 2003
327        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
329        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
3310.16    26 May 2003
332        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
334        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
335        Save button as well as the Preview one.
337        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
338        instead of decimal (requested by James).
3400.15    18 May 2003
341        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
342        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
3440.14    17 May 2003
345        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
346        the idea.
348        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
349        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
350        us to find bugs in.
3520.13    17 May 2003
353        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
355        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
357        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
359        Added edit field for map link.
3610.12    14 May 2003
362        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
363        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
3650.11    14 May 2003
366        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
368        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
369        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
3710.10    11 May 2003
372        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
373        node versions.
375        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
376        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
3780.09    10 May 2003
379        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
380        pub crawl generator.
382        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
383        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
384        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
385        process, hurrah.
3870.08    3 May 2003
388        Added fuzzy matching capability -
389          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
390        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
392        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
393        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
394        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
396        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
397        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
3990.07    3 May 2003
400        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
401        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
403        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
404        or Category Locales as appropriate.
406        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
407        grubstreet data.
409        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
410        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
4120.06    2 May 2003
413        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
414        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
4160.05    2 May 2003
417        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
418        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
419        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
421        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
422        I think.
424        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
4260.04    29 April 2003
427        First public release.
