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

7        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
8       
90.45    1 December 2004
10        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
11        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
12          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
13          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
14          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
15          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
16          distance searches will work.
17        In less exciting news:
18          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
19          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
20          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
21
220.44    17 November 2004
23        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
24          not completely removed before.
25        Improved the efficiency of the search.
26        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
27          and supersearch.tt have changed.
28        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
29        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
30
310.43    21 October 2004
32        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
33
340.42    20 October 2004
35        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
36          find_within_distance action.
37        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
38        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
39        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
40          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
41          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
42          introduced in 0.41.
43        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
44
450.41    21 September 2004
46        Added backlinks link to navbar.
47        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
48        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
49          installed as index.cgi
50        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
51        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
52          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
53          for details).
54        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
55        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
56          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
57        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
58
590.40    18 September 2004
60        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
61          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
62        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
63        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
64        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
65        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
66        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
67        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
68        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
69        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
70
710.39    15 September 2004
72        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
73        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
74          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
75          you will need to do two things:
76            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
77              directory) or use a different index directory
78            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
79              directory of this distribution)
80
810.38    26 July 2004
82        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
83          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
84
850.37    23 July 2004
86        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
87          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
88          avoid escapeHTML bug.
89
900.36    13 July 2004
91        Added diff link to node template.
92        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
93        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
94
950.35    25 June 2004
96        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
97          use this.
98
990.34    25 June 2004
100        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
101          this from the node history page.
102
1030.33    20 June 2004
104        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
105          the previous one or the current one.
106        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
107          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
108          for most of them.
109        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
110          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
111          by Steve Jolly).
112        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
113          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
114          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
115          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
116          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
117        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
118          Advanced Search).
119        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
120          OpenGuides.pm.
121        Added new preference for default edit type.
122        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
123          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
124        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
125          history) pages.
126
1270.32    7 June 2004
128        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
129          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
130          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
131          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
132          created accidentally.
133
1340.31    09 May 2004
135        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
136          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
137          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
138            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
139       
140        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
141          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
142          - summaries for all HTML tables
143          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
144            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
145            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
146            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
147            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
148            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
149            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
150          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
151            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
152            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
153            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
154            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
155            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
156
157        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
158          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
159
160        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
161          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
162          - empty tags are no longer generated
163          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
164            node RDF view
165          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
166          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
167          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
168          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
169            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
170            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
171            FOAF topics)
172          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
173
174        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
175          SQLite databases.
176
177        Doc fix for private installations.
178
179        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
180          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
181          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
182
183        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
184
185        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
186          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
187          be distributing it.
188
1890.30    29 December 2003
190        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
191          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
192          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
193
194        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
195          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
196          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
197          of navigation bar is consistent.
198          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
199          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
200          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
201          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
202          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
203          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
204
205        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
206          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
207          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
208          documentation you can provide.
209
210        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
211          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
212
213        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
214
215        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
216
217        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
218
219        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
220
2210.29    8 November 2003
222        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
223
224        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
225          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
226
227        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
228
2290.28    1 November 2003
230        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
231
232        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
233        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
234          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
235
2360.27    1 November 2003
237        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
238
239        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
240
241        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
242        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
243
2440.26    9 October 2003
245        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
246          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
247
248        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
249
250        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
251
252        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
253          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
254
2550.25    23 September 2003
256        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
257
258        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
259          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
260
261        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
262          have been - skip them for now.
263
2640.24    8 September 2003
265        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
266
267        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
268          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
269        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
270
2710.23    4 August 2003
272        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
273        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
274
2750.22    4 August 2003
276        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
277
278        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
279
280        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
281
282        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
283
284        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
285
286        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
287
288        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
289        footer (CPAN request 3110).
290
2910.21    17 July 2003
292        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
293        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
294        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
295        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
296
297        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
298        version that didn't have unescape.
299
300        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
301        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
302
303        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
304        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
305        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
306        one, not the original one every time.
307
3080.20    10 July 2003
309        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
310
3110.19    10 July 2003
312        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
313
314        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
315
316        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
317
318        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
319          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
320
321        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
322        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
323        in your config file.
324
325        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
326
327        Implemented minor edits.
328
329        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
330
3310.18    16 June 2003
332        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
333
3340.17    15 June 2003
335        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
336 
337        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
338
3390.16    26 May 2003
340        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
341
342        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
343        Save button as well as the Preview one.
344
345        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
346        instead of decimal (requested by James).
347
3480.15    18 May 2003
349        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
350        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
351
3520.14    17 May 2003
353        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
354        the idea.
355
356        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
357        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
358        us to find bugs in.
359
3600.13    17 May 2003
361        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
362 
363        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
364
365        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
366
367        Added edit field for map link.
368
3690.12    14 May 2003
370        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
371        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
372
3730.11    14 May 2003
374        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
375
376        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
377        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
378
3790.10    11 May 2003
380        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
381        node versions.
382
383        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
384        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
385
3860.09    10 May 2003
387        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
388        pub crawl generator.
389
390        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
391        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
392        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
393        process, hurrah.
394
3950.08    3 May 2003
396        Added fuzzy matching capability -
397          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
398        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
399
400        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
401        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
402        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
403
404        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
405        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
406
4070.07    3 May 2003
408        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
409        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
410
411        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
412        or Category Locales as appropriate.
413
414        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
415        grubstreet data.
416
417        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
418        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
419
4200.06    2 May 2003
421        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
422        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
423
4240.05    2 May 2003
425        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
426        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
427        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
428
429        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
430        I think.
431
432        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
433
4340.04    29 April 2003
435        First public release.
