25            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
26          Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
27            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.

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

40        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
41          node display.
42        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
43          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
44        Replace <label> tags in with <span

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

71        Fixed distance search paging bug.
72        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
73          trailing spaces in the name.
74        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
75          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
76          Class::Accessor.
77        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
78          is a risky activity.
79        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
80        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
81          distribution.
830.45    1 December 2004
84        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
85        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
86          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
87          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
88          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
89          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
90          distance searches will work.
91        In less exciting news:
92          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
93          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
94          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
960.44    17 November 2004

100        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
101          and have changed.
102        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
103        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1050.43    21 October 2004
106        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1080.42    20 October 2004
109        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
110          find_within_distance action.
111        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
112        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
113        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
114          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
115          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
116          introduced in 0.41.
117        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1190.41    21 September 2004
120        Added backlinks link to navbar.
121        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
122        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
123          installed as index.cgi
124        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
125        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
126          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
127          for details).
128        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
129        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
130          @RSS;username=Kake
131        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1330.40    18 September 2004
134        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
135          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
136        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
137        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
138        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
139        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
140        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
141        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
142        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
143        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1450.39    15 September 2004
146        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
147        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
148          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
149          you will need to do two things:
150            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
151              directory) or use a different index directory
152            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
153              directory of this distribution)
1550.38    26 July 2004
156        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
157          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1590.37    23 July 2004
160        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
161          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
162          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1640.36    13 July 2004
165        Added diff link to node template.
166        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
167        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1690.35    25 June 2004
170        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
171          use this.
1730.34    25 June 2004
174        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
175          this from the node history page.
1770.33    20 June 2004
178        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
179          the previous one or the current one.
180        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
181          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
182          for most of them.
183        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
184          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
185          by Steve Jolly).
186        Removed inline style from You will need to add
187          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
188          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
189          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
190          td#map changed to td#map_link in
191        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
192          Advanced Search).
193        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
195        Added new preference for default edit type.
196        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
197          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
198        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
199          history) pages.
2010.32    7 June 2004
202        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
203          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
204          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
205          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
206          created accidentally.
2080.31    09 May 2004
209        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
210          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
211          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
212            @RSS []
214        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
215          Accessibility Guidelines (
216          - summaries for all HTML tables
217          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
218            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
219            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
220            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
221            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
222            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
223            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
224          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
225            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
226            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
227            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
228            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
229            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
231        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
232          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
234        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
235          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
236          - empty tags are no longer generated
237          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
238            node RDF view
239          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
240          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
241          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
242          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
243            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
244            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
245            FOAF topics)
246          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
248        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
249          SQLite databases.
251        Doc fix for private installations.
253        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
254          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
255          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
257        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
259        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
260          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
261          be distributing it.
2630.30    29 December 2003
264        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
265          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
266          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
268        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
269          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
270          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
271          of navigation bar is consistent.
272          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
273          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
274          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
275          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
276          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
277          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
279        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
280          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
281          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
282          documentation you can provide.
284        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
285          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
287        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
289        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
291        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
293        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2950.29    8 November 2003
296        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
298 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
299          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
301 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3030.28    1 November 2003
304        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
306        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
307        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
308          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3100.27    1 November 2003
311        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
313        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
315        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
316        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3180.26    9 October 2003
319        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
320          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
322        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
324        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
326        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
327          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3290.25    23 September 2003
330        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
332        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
333          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
335        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
336          have been - skip them for now.
3380.24    8 September 2003
339        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
341        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
342          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
343        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3450.23    4 August 2003
346        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
347        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3490.22    4 August 2003
350        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
352        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
354        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
356        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
358        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
360        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
362        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
363        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3650.21    17 July 2003
366        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
367        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
368        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
369        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
371        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
372        version that didn't have unescape.
374        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
375        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
377        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
378        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
379        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
380        one, not the original one every time.
3820.20    10 July 2003
383        Fixed all the email addresses to
3850.19    10 July 2003
386        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
388        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
390        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
392        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
393          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
395        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
396        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
397        in your config file.
399        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
401        Implemented minor edits.
403        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4050.18    16 June 2003
406        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4080.17    15 June 2003
409        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
411        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4130.16    26 May 2003
414        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
416        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
417        Save button as well as the Preview one.
419        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
420        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4220.15    18 May 2003
423        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
424        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4260.14    17 May 2003
427        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
428        the idea.
430        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
431        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
432        us to find bugs in.
4340.13    17 May 2003
435        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
437        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
439        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
441        Added edit field for map link.
4430.12    14 May 2003
444        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
445        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4470.11    14 May 2003
448        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
450        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
451        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4530.10    11 May 2003
454        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
455        node versions.
457        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
458        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4600.09    10 May 2003
461        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
462        pub crawl generator.
464        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
465        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
466        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
467        process, hurrah.
4690.08    3 May 2003
470        Added fuzzy matching capability -
471          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
472        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
474        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
475        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
476        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
478        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
479        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
4810.07    3 May 2003
482        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
483        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
485        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
486        or Category Locales as appropriate.
488        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
489        grubstreet data.
491        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
492        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
4940.06    2 May 2003
495        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
496        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
4980.05    2 May 2003
499        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
500        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
501        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
503        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
504        I think.
506        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5080.04    29 April 2003
509        First public release.
