File size: 19.5 KB
1        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
2        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
40.46    21 December 2004
5        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
6          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
7        Update supersearch help text URL.
8        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
9        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
10          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
11        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
12        Fixed distance search paging bug.
13        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
14          trailing spaces in the name.
15        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
16          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
17          Class::Accessor.
18        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
19          is a risky activity.
20        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
21        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
22          distribution.
240.45    1 December 2004
25        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
26        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
27          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
28          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
29          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
30          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
31          distance searches will work.
32        In less exciting news:
33          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
34          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
35          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
370.44    17 November 2004
38        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
39          not completely removed before.
40        Improved the efficiency of the search.
41        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
42          and have changed.
43        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
44        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
460.43    21 October 2004
47        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
490.42    20 October 2004
50        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
51          find_within_distance action.
52        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
53        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
54        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
55          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
56          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
57          introduced in 0.41.
58        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
600.41    21 September 2004
61        Added backlinks link to navbar.
62        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
63        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
64          installed as index.cgi
65        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
66        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
67          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
68          for details).
69        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
70        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
71          @RSS;username=Kake
72        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
740.40    18 September 2004
75        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
76          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
77        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
78        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
79        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
80        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
81        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
82        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
83        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
84        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
860.39    15 September 2004
87        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
88        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
89          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
90          you will need to do two things:
91            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
92              directory) or use a different index directory
93            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
94              directory of this distribution)
960.38    26 July 2004
97        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
98          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1000.37    23 July 2004
101        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
102          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
103          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1050.36    13 July 2004
106        Added diff link to node template.
107        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
108        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1100.35    25 June 2004
111        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
112          use this.
1140.34    25 June 2004
115        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
116          this from the node history page.
1180.33    20 June 2004
119        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
120          the previous one or the current one.
121        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
122          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
123          for most of them.
124        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
125          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
126          by Steve Jolly).
127        Removed inline style from You will need to add
128          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
129          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
130          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
131          td#map changed to td#map_link in
132        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
133          Advanced Search).
134        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
136        Added new preference for default edit type.
137        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
138          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
139        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
140          history) pages.
1420.32    7 June 2004
143        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
144          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
145          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
146          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
147          created accidentally.
1490.31    09 May 2004
150        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
151          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
152          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
153            @RSS []
155        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
156          Accessibility Guidelines (
157          - summaries for all HTML tables
158          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
159            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
160            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
161            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
162            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
163            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
164            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
165          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
166            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
167            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
168            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
169            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
170            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
172        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
173          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
175        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
176          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
177          - empty tags are no longer generated
178          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
179            node RDF view
180          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
181          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
182          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
183          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
184            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
185            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
186            FOAF topics)
187          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
189        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
190          SQLite databases.
192        Doc fix for private installations.
194        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
195          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
196          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
198        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
200        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
201          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
202          be distributing it.
2040.30    29 December 2003
205        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
206          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
207          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
209        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
210          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
211          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
212          of navigation bar is consistent.
213          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
214          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
215          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
216          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
217          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
218          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
220        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
221          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
222          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
223          documentation you can provide.
225        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
226          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
228        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
230        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
232        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
234        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2360.29    8 November 2003
237        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
239 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
240          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
242 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
2440.28    1 November 2003
245        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
247        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
248        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
249          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
2510.27    1 November 2003
252        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
254        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
256        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
257        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
2590.26    9 October 2003
260        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
261          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
263        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
265        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
267        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
268          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
2700.25    23 September 2003
271        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
273        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
274          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
276        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
277          have been - skip them for now.
2790.24    8 September 2003
280        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
282        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
283          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
284        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
2860.23    4 August 2003
287        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
288        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
2900.22    4 August 2003
291        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
293        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
295        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
297        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
299        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
301        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
303        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
304        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3060.21    17 July 2003
307        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
308        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
309        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
310        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
312        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
313        version that didn't have unescape.
315        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
316        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
318        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
319        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
320        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
321        one, not the original one every time.
3230.20    10 July 2003
324        Fixed all the email addresses to
3260.19    10 July 2003
327        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
329        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
331        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
333        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
334          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
336        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
337        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
338        in your config file.
340        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
342        Implemented minor edits.
344        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
3460.18    16 June 2003
347        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
3490.17    15 June 2003
350        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
352        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
3540.16    26 May 2003
355        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
357        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
358        Save button as well as the Preview one.
360        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
361        instead of decimal (requested by James).
3630.15    18 May 2003
364        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
365        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
3670.14    17 May 2003
368        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
369        the idea.
371        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
372        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
373        us to find bugs in.
3750.13    17 May 2003
376        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
378        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
380        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
382        Added edit field for map link.
3840.12    14 May 2003
385        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
386        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
3880.11    14 May 2003
389        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
391        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
392        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
3940.10    11 May 2003
395        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
396        node versions.
398        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
399        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4010.09    10 May 2003
402        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
403        pub crawl generator.
405        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
406        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
407        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
408        process, hurrah.
4100.08    3 May 2003
411        Added fuzzy matching capability -
412          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
413        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
415        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
416        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
417        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
419        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
420        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
4220.07    3 May 2003
423        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
424        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
426        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
427        or Category Locales as appropriate.
429        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
430        grubstreet data.
432        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
433        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
4350.06    2 May 2003
436        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
437        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
4390.05    2 May 2003
440        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
441        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
442        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
444        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
445        I think.
447        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
4490.04    29 April 2003
450        First public release.
