17        RDF enhancements:
18          Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
19            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
20          Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
21            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
22          Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
23            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
24          Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
25            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
26            applications.
27          Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
28            to other nodes.
29          RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and

31        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
32        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
33          template
34        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
35          informing you of the fact.
36        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
37          node display.
38        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
39          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
40        Replace <label> tags in with <span

61          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
62        Update supersearch help text URL.
63        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.

67        Fixed distance search paging bug.
68        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
69          trailing spaces in the name.
70        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
71          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
72          Class::Accessor.
73        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
74          is a risky activity.
75        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
76        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
77          distribution.
790.45    1 December 2004
80        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
81        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
82          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
83          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
84          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
85          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
86          distance searches will work.
87        In less exciting news:
88          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
89          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
90          Fixed some HTML validation errors.

96        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
97          and have changed.
98        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
99        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1010.43    21 October 2004
102        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1040.42    20 October 2004
105        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
106          find_within_distance action.
107        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
108        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
109        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
110          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
111          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
112          introduced in 0.41.
113        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1150.41    21 September 2004
116        Added backlinks link to navbar.
117        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
118        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
119          installed as index.cgi
120        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
121        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
122          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
123          for details).
124        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
125        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
126          @RSS;username=Kake
127        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1290.40    18 September 2004
130        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
131          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
132        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
133        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
134        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
135        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
136        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
137        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
138        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
139        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1410.39    15 September 2004
142        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
143        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
144          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
145          you will need to do two things:
146            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
147              directory) or use a different index directory
148            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
149              directory of this distribution)
1510.38    26 July 2004
152        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
153          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1550.37    23 July 2004
156        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
157          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
158          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1600.36    13 July 2004
161        Added diff link to node template.
162        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
163        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1650.35    25 June 2004
166        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
167          use this.
1690.34    25 June 2004
170        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
171          this from the node history page.
1730.33    20 June 2004
174        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
175          the previous one or the current one.
176        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
177          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
178          for most of them.
179        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
180          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
181          by Steve Jolly).
182        Removed inline style from You will need to add
183          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
184          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
185          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
186          td#map changed to td#map_link in
187        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
188          Advanced Search).
189        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
191        Added new preference for default edit type.
192        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
193          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
194        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
195          history) pages.
1970.32    7 June 2004
198        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
199          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
200          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
201          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
202          created accidentally.
2040.31    09 May 2004
205        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
206          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
207          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
208            @RSS []
210        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
211          Accessibility Guidelines (
212          - summaries for all HTML tables
213          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
214            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
215            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
216            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
217            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
218            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
219            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
220          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
221            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
222            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
223            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
224            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
225            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
227        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
228          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
230        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
231          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
232          - empty tags are no longer generated
233          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
234            node RDF view
235          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
236          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
237          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
238          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
239            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
240            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
241            FOAF topics)
242          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
244        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
245          SQLite databases.
247        Doc fix for private installations.
249        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
250          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
251          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
253        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
255        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
256          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
257          be distributing it.
2590.30    29 December 2003
260        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
261          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
262          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
264        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
265          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
266          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
267          of navigation bar is consistent.
268          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
269          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
270          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
271          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
272          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
273          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
275        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
276          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
277          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
278          documentation you can provide.
280        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
281          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
283        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
285        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
287        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
289        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2910.29    8 November 2003
292        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
294 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
295          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
297 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
2990.28    1 November 2003
300        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
302        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
303        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
304          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3060.27    1 November 2003
307        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
309        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
311        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
312        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3140.26    9 October 2003
315        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
316          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
318        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
320        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
322        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
323          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3250.25    23 September 2003
326        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
328        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
329          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
331        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
332          have been - skip them for now.
3340.24    8 September 2003
335        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
337        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
338          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
339        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3410.23    4 August 2003
342        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
343        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3450.22    4 August 2003
346        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
348        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
350        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
352        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
354        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
356        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
358        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
359        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3610.21    17 July 2003
362        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
363        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
364        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
365        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
367        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
368        version that didn't have unescape.
370        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
371        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
373        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
374        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
375        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
376        one, not the original one every time.
3780.20    10 July 2003
379        Fixed all the email addresses to
3810.19    10 July 2003
382        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
384        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
386        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
388        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
389          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
391        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
392        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
393        in your config file.
395        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
397        Implemented minor edits.
399        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4010.18    16 June 2003
402        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4040.17    15 June 2003
405        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
407        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4090.16    26 May 2003
410        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
412        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
413        Save button as well as the Preview one.
415        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
416        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4180.15    18 May 2003
419        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
420        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4220.14    17 May 2003
423        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
424        the idea.
426        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
427        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
428        us to find bugs in.
4300.13    17 May 2003
431        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
433        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
435        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
437        Added edit field for map link.
4390.12    14 May 2003
440        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
441        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4430.11    14 May 2003
444        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
446        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
447        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4490.10    11 May 2003
450        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
451        node versions.
453        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
454        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4560.09    10 May 2003
457        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
458        pub crawl generator.
460        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
461        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
462        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
463        process, hurrah.
4650.08    3 May 2003
466        Added fuzzy matching capability -
467          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
468        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
470        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
471        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
472        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
474        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
475        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
4770.07    3 May 2003
478        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
