Line 
1        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
2          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
3        Update supersearch help text URL.
4        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
5        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
6         to node names - see README.CSS for details.
7       
80.45    1 December 2004
9        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
10        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
11          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
12          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
13          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
14          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
15          distance searches will work.
16        In less exciting news:
17          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
18          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
19          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
20
210.44    17 November 2004
22        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
23          not completely removed before.
24        Improved the efficiency of the search.
25        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
26          and supersearch.tt have changed.
27        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
28        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
29
300.43    21 October 2004
31        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
32
330.42    20 October 2004
34        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
35          find_within_distance action.
36        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
37        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
38        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
39          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
40          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
41          introduced in 0.41.
42        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
43
440.41    21 September 2004
45        Added backlinks link to navbar.
46        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
47        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
48          installed as index.cgi
49        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
50        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
51          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
52          for details).
53        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
54        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
55          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
56        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
57
580.40    18 September 2004
59        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
60          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
61        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
62        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
63        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
64        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
65        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
66        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
67        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
68        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
69
700.39    15 September 2004
71        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
72        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
73          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
74          you will need to do two things:
75            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
76              directory) or use a different index directory
77            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
78              directory of this distribution)
79
800.38    26 July 2004
81        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
82          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
83
840.37    23 July 2004
85        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
86          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
87          avoid escapeHTML bug.
88
890.36    13 July 2004
90        Added diff link to node template.
91        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
92        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
93
940.35    25 June 2004
95        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
96          use this.
97
980.34    25 June 2004
99        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
100          this from the node history page.
101
1020.33    20 June 2004
103        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
104          the previous one or the current one.
105        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
106          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
107          for most of them.
108        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
109          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
110          by Steve Jolly).
111        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
112          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
113          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
114          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
115          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
116        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
117          Advanced Search).
118        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
119          OpenGuides.pm.
120        Added new preference for default edit type.
121        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
122          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
123        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
124          history) pages.
125
1260.32    7 June 2004
127        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
128          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
129          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
130          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
131          created accidentally.
132
1330.31    09 May 2004
134        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
135          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
136          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
137            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
138       
139        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
140          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
141          - summaries for all HTML tables
142          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
143            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
144            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
145            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
146            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
147            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
148            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
149          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
150            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
151            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
152            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
153            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
154            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
155
156        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
157          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
158
159        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
160          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
161          - empty tags are no longer generated
162          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
163            node RDF view
164          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
165          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
166          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
167          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
168            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
169            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
170            FOAF topics)
171          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
172
173        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
174          SQLite databases.
175
176        Doc fix for private installations.
177
178        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
179          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
180          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
181
182        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
183
184        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
185          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
186          be distributing it.
187
1880.30    29 December 2003
189        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
190          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
191          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
192
193        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
194          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
195          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
196          of navigation bar is consistent.
197          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
198          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
199          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
200          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
201          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
202          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
203
204        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
205          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
206          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
207          documentation you can provide.
208
209        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
210          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
211
212        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
213
214        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
215
216        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
217
218        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
219
2200.29    8 November 2003
221        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
222
223        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
224          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
225
226        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
227
2280.28    1 November 2003
229        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
230
231        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
232        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
233          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
234
2350.27    1 November 2003
236        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
237
238        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
239
240        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
241        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
242
2430.26    9 October 2003
244        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
245          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
246
247        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
248
249        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
250
251        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
252          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
253
2540.25    23 September 2003
255        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
256
257        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
258          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
259
260        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
261          have been - skip them for now.
262
2630.24    8 September 2003
264        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
265
266        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
267          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
268        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
269
2700.23    4 August 2003
271        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
272        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
273
2740.22    4 August 2003
275        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
276
277        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
278
279        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
280
281        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
282
283        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
284
285        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
286
287        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
288        footer (CPAN request 3110).
289
2900.21    17 July 2003
291        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
292        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
293        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
294        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
295
296        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
297        version that didn't have unescape.
298
299        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
300        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
301
302        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
303        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
304        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
305        one, not the original one every time.
306
3070.20    10 July 2003
308        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
309
3100.19    10 July 2003
311        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
312
313        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
314
315        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
316
317        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
318          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
319
320        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
321        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
322        in your config file.
323
324        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
325
326        Implemented minor edits.
327
328        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
329
3300.18    16 June 2003
331        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
332
3330.17    15 June 2003
334        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
335 
336        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
337
3380.16    26 May 2003
339        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
340
341        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
342        Save button as well as the Preview one.
343
344        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
345        instead of decimal (requested by James).
346
3470.15    18 May 2003
348        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
349        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
350
3510.14    17 May 2003
352        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
353        the idea.
354
355        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
356        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
357        us to find bugs in.
358
3590.13    17 May 2003
360        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
361 
362        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
363
364        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
365
366        Added edit field for map link.
367
3680.12    14 May 2003
369        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
370        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
371
3720.11    14 May 2003
373        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
374
375        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
376        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
377
3780.10    11 May 2003
379        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
380        node versions.
381
382        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
383        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
384
3850.09    10 May 2003
386        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
387        pub crawl generator.
388
389        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
390        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
391        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
392        process, hurrah.
393
3940.08    3 May 2003
395        Added fuzzy matching capability -
396          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
397        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
398
399        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
400        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
401        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
402
403        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
404        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
405
4060.07    3 May 2003
407        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
408        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
409
410        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
411        or Category Locales as appropriate.
412
413        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
414        grubstreet data.
415
416        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
417        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
418
4190.06    2 May 2003
420        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
421        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
422
4230.05    2 May 2003
424        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
425        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
426        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
427
428        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
429        I think.
430
431        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
432
4330.04    29 April 2003
434        First public release.
