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

34        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
35        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated

37        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
38          informing you of the fact.
39        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
40          node display.
41        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
42          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
43        Replace <label> tags in with <span

64          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
65        Update supersearch help text URL.
66        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.

70        Fixed distance search paging bug.
71        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
72          trailing spaces in the name.
73        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
74          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
75          Class::Accessor.
76        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
77          is a risky activity.
78        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
79        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
80          distribution.
820.45    1 December 2004
83        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
84        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
85          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
86          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
87          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
88          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
89          distance searches will work.
90        In less exciting news:
91          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
92          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
93          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
950.44    17 November 2004

99        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
100          and have changed.
101        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
102        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1040.43    21 October 2004
105        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1070.42    20 October 2004
108        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
109          find_within_distance action.
110        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
111        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
112        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
113          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
114          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
115          introduced in 0.41.
116        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1180.41    21 September 2004
119        Added backlinks link to navbar.
120        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
121        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
122          installed as index.cgi
123        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
124        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
125          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
126          for details).
127        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
128        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
129          @RSS;username=Kake
130        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1320.40    18 September 2004
133        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
134          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
135        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
136        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
137        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
138        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
139        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
140        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
141        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
142        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1440.39    15 September 2004
145        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
146        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
147          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
148          you will need to do two things:
149            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
150              directory) or use a different index directory
151            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
152              directory of this distribution)
1540.38    26 July 2004
155        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
156          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1580.37    23 July 2004
159        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
160          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
161          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1630.36    13 July 2004
164        Added diff link to node template.
165        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
166        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1680.35    25 June 2004
169        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
170          use this.
1720.34    25 June 2004
173        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
174          this from the node history page.
1760.33    20 June 2004
177        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
178          the previous one or the current one.
179        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
180          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
181          for most of them.
182        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
183          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
184          by Steve Jolly).
185        Removed inline style from You will need to add
186          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
187          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
188          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
189          td#map changed to td#map_link in
190        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
191          Advanced Search).
192        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
194        Added new preference for default edit type.
195        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
196          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
197        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
198          history) pages.
2000.32    7 June 2004
201        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
202          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
203          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
204          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
205          created accidentally.
2070.31    09 May 2004
208        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
209          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
210          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
211            @RSS []
213        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
214          Accessibility Guidelines (
215          - summaries for all HTML tables
216          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
217            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
218            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
219            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
220            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
221            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
222            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
223          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
224            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
225            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
226            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
227            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
228            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
230        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
231          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
233        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
234          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
235          - empty tags are no longer generated
236          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
237            node RDF view
238          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
239          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
240          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
241          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
242            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
243            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
244            FOAF topics)
245          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
247        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
248          SQLite databases.
250        Doc fix for private installations.
252        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
253          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
254          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
256        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
258        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
259          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
260          be distributing it.
2620.30    29 December 2003
263        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
264          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
265          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
267        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
268          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
269          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
270          of navigation bar is consistent.
271          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
272          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
273          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
274          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
275          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
276          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
278        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
279          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
280          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
281          documentation you can provide.
283        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
284          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
286        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
288        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
290        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
292        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2940.29    8 November 2003
295        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
297 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
298          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
300 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3020.28    1 November 2003
303        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
305        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
306        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
307          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3090.27    1 November 2003
310        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
312        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
314        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
315        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3170.26    9 October 2003
318        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
319          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
321        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
323        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
325        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
326          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3280.25    23 September 2003
329        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
331        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
332          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
334        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
335          have been - skip them for now.
3370.24    8 September 2003
338        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
340        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
341          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
342        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3440.23    4 August 2003
345        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
346        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3480.22    4 August 2003
349        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
351        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
353        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
355        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
357        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
359        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
361        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
362        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3640.21    17 July 2003
365        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
366        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
367        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
368        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
370        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
371        version that didn't have unescape.
373        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
374        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
376        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
377        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
378        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
379        one, not the original one every time.
3810.20    10 July 2003
382        Fixed all the email addresses to
3840.19    10 July 2003
385        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
387        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
389        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
391        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
392          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
394        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
395        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
396        in your config file.
398        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
400        Implemented minor edits.
402        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4040.18    16 June 2003
405        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4070.17    15 June 2003
408        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
410        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4120.16    26 May 2003
413        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
415        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
416        Save button as well as the Preview one.
418        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
419        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4210.15    18 May 2003
422        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
423        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4250.14    17 May 2003
426        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
427        the idea.
429        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
430        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
431        us to find bugs in.
4330.13    17 May 2003
434        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
436        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
438        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
440        Added edit field for map link.
4420.12    14 May 2003
443        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
444        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4460.11    14 May 2003
447        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
449        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
450        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4520.10    11 May 2003
453        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
454        node versions.
456        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
457        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4590.09    10 May 2003
460        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
461        pub crawl generator.
463        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
464        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
465        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
466        process, hurrah.
4680.08    3 May 2003
469        Added fuzzy matching capability -
470          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
471        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
473        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
474        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
475        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
477        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
478        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
4800.07    3 May 2003
481        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
482        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
484        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
485        or Category Locales as appropriate.
487        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
488        grubstreet data.
490        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
491        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
4930.06    2 May 2003
494        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
495        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
4970.05    2 May 2003
498        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
499        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
500        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
502        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
503        I think.
505        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5070.04    29 April 2003
508        First public release.
