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        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
10          trailing spaces in the name.
11       
120.45    1 December 2004
13        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
14        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
15          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
16          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
17          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
18          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
19          distance searches will work.
20        In less exciting news:
21          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
22          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
23          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
24
250.44    17 November 2004
26        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
27          not completely removed before.
28        Improved the efficiency of the search.
29        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
30          and supersearch.tt have changed.
31        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
32        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
33
340.43    21 October 2004
35        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
36
370.42    20 October 2004
38        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
39          find_within_distance action.
40        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
41        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
42        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
43          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
44          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
45          introduced in 0.41.
46        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
47
480.41    21 September 2004
49        Added backlinks link to navbar.
50        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
51        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
52          installed as index.cgi
53        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
54        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
55          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
56          for details).
57        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
58        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
59          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
60        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
61
620.40    18 September 2004
63        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
64          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
65        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
66        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
67        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
68        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
69        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
70        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
71        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
72        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
73
740.39    15 September 2004
75        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
76        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
77          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
78          you will need to do two things:
79            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
80              directory) or use a different index directory
81            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
82              directory of this distribution)
83
840.38    26 July 2004
85        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
86          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
87
880.37    23 July 2004
89        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
90          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
91          avoid escapeHTML bug.
92
930.36    13 July 2004
94        Added diff link to node template.
95        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
96        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
97
980.35    25 June 2004
99        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
100          use this.
101
1020.34    25 June 2004
103        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
104          this from the node history page.
105
1060.33    20 June 2004
107        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
108          the previous one or the current one.
109        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
110          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
111          for most of them.
112        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
113          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
114          by Steve Jolly).
115        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
116          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
117          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
118          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
119          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
120        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
121          Advanced Search).
122        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
123          OpenGuides.pm.
124        Added new preference for default edit type.
125        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
126          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
127        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
128          history) pages.
129
1300.32    7 June 2004
131        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
132          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
133          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
134          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
135          created accidentally.
136
1370.31    09 May 2004
138        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
139          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
140          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
141            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
142       
143        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
144          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
145          - summaries for all HTML tables
146          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
147            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
148            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
149            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
150            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
151            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
152            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
153          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
154            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
155            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
156            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
157            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
158            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
159
160        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
161          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
162
163        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
164          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
165          - empty tags are no longer generated
166          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
167            node RDF view
168          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
169          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
170          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
171          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
172            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
173            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
174            FOAF topics)
175          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
176
177        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
178          SQLite databases.
179
180        Doc fix for private installations.
181
182        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
183          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
184          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
185
186        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
187
188        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
189          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
190          be distributing it.
191
1920.30    29 December 2003
193        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
194          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
195          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
196
197        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
198          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
199          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
200          of navigation bar is consistent.
201          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
202          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
203          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
204          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
205          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
206          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
207
208        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
209          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
210          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
211          documentation you can provide.
212
213        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
214          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
215
216        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
217
218        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
219
220        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
221
222        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
223
2240.29    8 November 2003
225        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
226
227        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
228          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
229
230        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
231
2320.28    1 November 2003
233        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
234
235        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
236        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
237          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
238
2390.27    1 November 2003
240        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
241
242        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
243
244        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
245        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
246
2470.26    9 October 2003
248        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
249          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
250
251        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
252
253        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
254
255        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
256          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
257
2580.25    23 September 2003
259        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
260
261        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
262          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
263
264        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
265          have been - skip them for now.
266
2670.24    8 September 2003
268        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
269
270        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
271          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
272        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
273
2740.23    4 August 2003
275        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
276        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
277
2780.22    4 August 2003
279        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
280
281        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
282
283        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
284
285        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
286
287        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
288
289        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
290
291        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
292        footer (CPAN request 3110).
293
2940.21    17 July 2003
295        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
296        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
297        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
298        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
299
300        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
301        version that didn't have unescape.
302
303        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
304        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
305
306        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
307        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
308        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
309        one, not the original one every time.
310
3110.20    10 July 2003
312        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
313
3140.19    10 July 2003
315        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
316
317        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
318
319        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
320
321        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
322          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
323
324        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
325        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
326        in your config file.
327
328        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
329
330        Implemented minor edits.
331
332        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
333
3340.18    16 June 2003
335        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
336
3370.17    15 June 2003
338        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
339 
340        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
341
3420.16    26 May 2003
343        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
344
345        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
346        Save button as well as the Preview one.
347
348        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
349        instead of decimal (requested by James).
350
3510.15    18 May 2003
352        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
353        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
354
3550.14    17 May 2003
356        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
357        the idea.
358
359        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
360        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
361        us to find bugs in.
362
3630.13    17 May 2003
364        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
365 
366        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
367
368        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
369
370        Added edit field for map link.
371
3720.12    14 May 2003
373        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
374        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
375
3760.11    14 May 2003
377        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
378
379        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
380        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
381
3820.10    11 May 2003
383        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
384        node versions.
385
386        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
387        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
388
3890.09    10 May 2003
390        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
391        pub crawl generator.
392
393        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
394        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
395        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
396        process, hurrah.
397
3980.08    3 May 2003
399        Added fuzzy matching capability -
400          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
401        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
402
403        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
404        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
405        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
406
407        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
408        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
409
4100.07    3 May 2003
411        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
412        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
413
414        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
415        or Category Locales as appropriate.
416
417        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
418        grubstreet data.
419
420        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
421        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
422
4230.06    2 May 2003
424        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
425        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
426
4270.05    2 May 2003
428        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
429        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
430        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
431
432        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
433        I think.
434
435        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
436
4370.04    29 April 2003
438        First public release.
