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        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
8        Fixed distance search paging bug.
9       
100.45    1 December 2004
11        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
12        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
13          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
14          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
15          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
16          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
17          distance searches will work.
18        In less exciting news:
19          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
20          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
21          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
22
230.44    17 November 2004
24        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
25          not completely removed before.
26        Improved the efficiency of the search.
27        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
28          and supersearch.tt have changed.
29        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
30        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
31
320.43    21 October 2004
33        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
34
350.42    20 October 2004
36        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
37          find_within_distance action.
38        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
39        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
40        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
41          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
42          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
43          introduced in 0.41.
44        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
45
460.41    21 September 2004
47        Added backlinks link to navbar.
48        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
49        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
50          installed as index.cgi
51        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
52        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
53          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
54          for details).
55        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
56        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
57          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
58        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
59
600.40    18 September 2004
61        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
62          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
63        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
64        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
65        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
66        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
67        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
68        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
69        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
70        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
71
720.39    15 September 2004
73        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
74        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
75          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
76          you will need to do two things:
77            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
78              directory) or use a different index directory
79            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
80              directory of this distribution)
81
820.38    26 July 2004
83        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
84          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
85
860.37    23 July 2004
87        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
88          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
89          avoid escapeHTML bug.
90
910.36    13 July 2004
92        Added diff link to node template.
93        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
94        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
95
960.35    25 June 2004
97        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
98          use this.
99
1000.34    25 June 2004
101        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
102          this from the node history page.
103
1040.33    20 June 2004
105        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
106          the previous one or the current one.
107        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
108          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
109          for most of them.
110        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
111          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
112          by Steve Jolly).
113        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
114          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
115          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
116          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
117          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
118        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
119          Advanced Search).
120        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
121          OpenGuides.pm.
122        Added new preference for default edit type.
123        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
124          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
125        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
126          history) pages.
127
1280.32    7 June 2004
129        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
130          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
131          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
132          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
133          created accidentally.
134
1350.31    09 May 2004
136        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
137          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
138          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
139            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
140       
141        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
142          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
143          - summaries for all HTML tables
144          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
145            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
146            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
147            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
148            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
149            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
150            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
151          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
152            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
153            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
154            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
155            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
156            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
157
158        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
159          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
160
161        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
162          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
163          - empty tags are no longer generated
164          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
165            node RDF view
166          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
167          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
168          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
169          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
170            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
171            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
172            FOAF topics)
173          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
174
175        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
176          SQLite databases.
177
178        Doc fix for private installations.
179
180        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
181          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
182          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
183
184        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
185
186        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
187          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
188          be distributing it.
189
1900.30    29 December 2003
191        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
192          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
193          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
194
195        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
196          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
197          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
198          of navigation bar is consistent.
199          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
200          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
201          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
202          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
203          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
204          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
205
206        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
207          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
208          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
209          documentation you can provide.
210
211        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
212          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
213
214        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
215
216        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
217
218        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
219
220        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
221
2220.29    8 November 2003
223        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
224
225        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
226          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
227
228        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
229
2300.28    1 November 2003
231        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
232
233        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
234        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
235          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
236
2370.27    1 November 2003
238        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
239
240        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
241
242        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
243        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
244
2450.26    9 October 2003
246        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
247          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
248
249        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
250
251        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
252
253        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
254          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
255
2560.25    23 September 2003
257        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
258
259        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
260          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
261
262        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
263          have been - skip them for now.
264
2650.24    8 September 2003
266        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
267
268        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
269          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
270        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
271
2720.23    4 August 2003
273        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
274        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
275
2760.22    4 August 2003
277        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
278
279        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
280
281        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
282
283        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
284
285        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
286
287        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
288
289        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
290        footer (CPAN request 3110).
291
2920.21    17 July 2003
293        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
294        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
295        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
296        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
297
298        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
299        version that didn't have unescape.
300
301        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
302        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
303
304        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
305        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
306        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
307        one, not the original one every time.
308
3090.20    10 July 2003
310        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
311
3120.19    10 July 2003
313        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
314
315        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
316
317        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
318
319        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
320          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
321
322        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
323        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
324        in your config file.
325
326        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
327
328        Implemented minor edits.
329
330        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
331
3320.18    16 June 2003
333        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
334
3350.17    15 June 2003
336        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
337 
338        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
339
3400.16    26 May 2003
341        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
342
343        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
344        Save button as well as the Preview one.
345
346        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
347        instead of decimal (requested by James).
348
3490.15    18 May 2003
350        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
351        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
352
3530.14    17 May 2003
354        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
355        the idea.
356
357        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
358        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
359        us to find bugs in.
360
3610.13    17 May 2003
362        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
363 
364        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
365
366        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
367
368        Added edit field for map link.
369
3700.12    14 May 2003
371        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
372        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
373
3740.11    14 May 2003
375        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
376
377        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
378        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
379
3800.10    11 May 2003
381        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
382        node versions.
383
384        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
385        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
386
3870.09    10 May 2003
388        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
389        pub crawl generator.
390
391        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
392        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
393        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
394        process, hurrah.
395
3960.08    3 May 2003
397        Added fuzzy matching capability -
398          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
399        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
400
401        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
402        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
403        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
404
405        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
406        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
407
4080.07    3 May 2003
409        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
410        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
411
412        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
413        or Category Locales as appropriate.
414
415        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
416        grubstreet data.
417
418        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
419        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
420
4210.06    2 May 2003
422        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
423        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
424
4250.05    2 May 2003
426        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
427        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
428        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
429
430        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
431        I think.
432
433        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
434
4350.04    29 April 2003
436        First public release.
