10.46    20 December 2004
2        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
3          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
4        Update supersearch help text URL.
5        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
6        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
7          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
8        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
9        Fixed distance search paging bug.
10        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
11          trailing spaces in the name.
12        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
13          user-visible changes.
150.45    1 December 2004
16        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
17        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
18          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
19          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
20          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
21          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
22          distance searches will work.
23        In less exciting news:
24          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
25          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
26          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
280.44    17 November 2004
29        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
30          not completely removed before.
31        Improved the efficiency of the search.
32        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
33          and have changed.
34        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
35        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
370.43    21 October 2004
38        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
400.42    20 October 2004
41        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
42          find_within_distance action.
43        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
44        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
45        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
46          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
47          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
48          introduced in 0.41.
49        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
510.41    21 September 2004
52        Added backlinks link to navbar.
53        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
54        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
55          installed as index.cgi
56        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
57        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
58          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
59          for details).
60        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
61        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
62          @RSS;username=Kake
63        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
650.40    18 September 2004
66        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
67          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
68        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
69        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
70        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
71        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
72        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
73        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
74        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
75        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
770.39    15 September 2004
78        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
79        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
80          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
81          you will need to do two things:
82            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
83              directory) or use a different index directory
84            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
85              directory of this distribution)
870.38    26 July 2004
88        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
89          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
910.37    23 July 2004
92        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
93          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
94          avoid escapeHTML bug.
960.36    13 July 2004
97        Added diff link to node template.
98        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
99        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1010.35    25 June 2004
102        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
103          use this.
1050.34    25 June 2004
106        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
107          this from the node history page.
1090.33    20 June 2004
110        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
111          the previous one or the current one.
112        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
113          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
114          for most of them.
115        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
116          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
117          by Steve Jolly).
118        Removed inline style from You will need to add
119          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
120          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
121          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
122          td#map changed to td#map_link in
123        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
124          Advanced Search).
125        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
127        Added new preference for default edit type.
128        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
129          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
130        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
131          history) pages.
1330.32    7 June 2004
134        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
135          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
136          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
137          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
138          created accidentally.
1400.31    09 May 2004
141        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
142          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
143          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
144            @RSS []
146        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
147          Accessibility Guidelines (
148          - summaries for all HTML tables
149          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
150            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
151            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
152            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
153            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
154            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
155            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
156          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
157            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
158            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
159            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
160            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
161            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
163        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
164          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
166        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
167          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
168          - empty tags are no longer generated
169          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
170            node RDF view
171          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
172          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
173          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
174          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
175            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
176            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
177            FOAF topics)
178          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
180        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
181          SQLite databases.
183        Doc fix for private installations.
185        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
186          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
187          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
189        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
191        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
192          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
193          be distributing it.
1950.30    29 December 2003
196        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
197          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
198          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
200        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
201          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
202          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
203          of navigation bar is consistent.
204          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
205          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
206          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
207          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
208          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
209          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
211        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
212          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
213          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
214          documentation you can provide.
216        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
217          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
219        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
221        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
223        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
225        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2270.29    8 November 2003
228        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
230 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
231          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
233 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
2350.28    1 November 2003
236        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
238        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
239        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
240          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
2420.27    1 November 2003
243        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
245        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
247        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
248        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
2500.26    9 October 2003
251        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
252          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
254        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
256        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
258        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
259          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
2610.25    23 September 2003
262        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
264        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
265          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
267        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
268          have been - skip them for now.
2700.24    8 September 2003
271        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
273        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
274          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
275        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
2770.23    4 August 2003
278        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
279        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
2810.22    4 August 2003
282        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
284        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
286        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
288        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
290        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
292        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
294        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
295        footer (CPAN request 3110).
2970.21    17 July 2003
298        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
299        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
300        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
301        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
303        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
304        version that didn't have unescape.
306        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
307        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
309        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
310        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
311        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
312        one, not the original one every time.
3140.20    10 July 2003
315        Fixed all the email addresses to
3170.19    10 July 2003
318        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
320        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
322        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
324        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
325          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
327        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
328        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
329        in your config file.
331        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
333        Implemented minor edits.
335        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
3370.18    16 June 2003
338        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
3400.17    15 June 2003
341        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
343        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
3450.16    26 May 2003
346        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
348        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
349        Save button as well as the Preview one.
351        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
352        instead of decimal (requested by James).
3540.15    18 May 2003
355        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
356        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
3580.14    17 May 2003
359        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
360        the idea.
362        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
363        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
364        us to find bugs in.
3660.13    17 May 2003
367        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
369        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
371        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
373        Added edit field for map link.
3750.12    14 May 2003
376        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
377        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
3790.11    14 May 2003
380        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
382        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
383        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
3850.10    11 May 2003
386        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
387        node versions.
389        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
390        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
3920.09    10 May 2003
393        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
394        pub crawl generator.
396        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
397        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
398        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
399        process, hurrah.
4010.08    3 May 2003
402        Added fuzzy matching capability -
403          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
404        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
406        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
407        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
408        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
410        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
411        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
4130.07    3 May 2003
414        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
415        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
417        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
418        or Category Locales as appropriate.
420        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
421        grubstreet data.
423        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
424        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
4260.06    2 May 2003
427        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
428        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
4300.05    2 May 2003
431        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
432        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
433        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
435        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
436        I think.
438        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
4400.04    29 April 2003
441        First public release.
