27          Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
28            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
29          Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
30            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
31          Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in

39        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated

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

68          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
69        Update supersearch help text URL.
70        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.

74        Fixed distance search paging bug.
75        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
76          trailing spaces in the name.
77        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
78          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
79          Class::Accessor.
80        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
81          is a risky activity.
82        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
83        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
84          distribution.
860.45    1 December 2004
87        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
88        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
89          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
90          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
91          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
92          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
93          distance searches will work.
94        In less exciting news:
95          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
96          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
97          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
990.44    17 November 2004
100        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
101          not completely removed before.
102        Improved the efficiency of the search.
103        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
104          and have changed.
105        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
106        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1080.43    21 October 2004
109        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1110.42    20 October 2004
112        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
113          find_within_distance action.
114        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
115        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
116        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
117          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
118          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
119          introduced in 0.41.
120        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1220.41    21 September 2004
123        Added backlinks link to navbar.
124        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
125        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
126          installed as index.cgi
127        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
128        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
129          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
130          for details).
131        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
132        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
133          @RSS;username=Kake
134        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1360.40    18 September 2004
137        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
138          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
139        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
140        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
141        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
142        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
143        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
144        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
145        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
146        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1480.39    15 September 2004
149        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
150        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
151          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
152          you will need to do two things:
153            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
154              directory) or use a different index directory
155            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
156              directory of this distribution)
1580.38    26 July 2004
159        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
160          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1620.37    23 July 2004
163        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
164          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
165          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1670.36    13 July 2004
168        Added diff link to node template.
169        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
170        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1720.35    25 June 2004
173        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
174          use this.
1760.34    25 June 2004
177        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
178          this from the node history page.
1800.33    20 June 2004
181        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
182          the previous one or the current one.
183        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
184          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
185          for most of them.
186        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
187          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
188          by Steve Jolly).
189        Removed inline style from You will need to add
190          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
191          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
192          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
193          td#map changed to td#map_link in
194        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
195          Advanced Search).
196        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
198        Added new preference for default edit type.
199        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
200          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
201        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
202          history) pages.
2040.32    7 June 2004
205        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
206          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
207          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
208          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
209          created accidentally.
2110.31    09 May 2004
212        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
213          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
214          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
215            @RSS []
217        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
218          Accessibility Guidelines (
219          - summaries for all HTML tables
220          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
221            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
222            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
223            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
224            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
225            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
226            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
227          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
228            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
229            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
230            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
231            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
232            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
234        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
235          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
237        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
238          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
239          - empty tags are no longer generated
240          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
241            node RDF view
242          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
243          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
244          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
245          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
246            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
247            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
248            FOAF topics)
249          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
251        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
252          SQLite databases.
254        Doc fix for private installations.
256        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
257          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
258          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
260        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
262        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
263          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
264          be distributing it.
2660.30    29 December 2003
267        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
268          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
269          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
271        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
272          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
273          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
274          of navigation bar is consistent.
275          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
276          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
277          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
278          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
279          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
280          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
282        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
283          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
284          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
285          documentation you can provide.
287        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
288          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
290        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
292        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
294        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
296        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
2980.29    8 November 2003
299        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
301 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
302          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
304 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3060.28    1 November 2003
307        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
309        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
310        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
311          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3130.27    1 November 2003
314        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
316        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
318        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
319        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3210.26    9 October 2003
322        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
323          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
325        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
327        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
329        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
330          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3320.25    23 September 2003
333        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
335        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
336          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
338        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
339          have been - skip them for now.
3410.24    8 September 2003
342        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
344        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
345          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
346        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3480.23    4 August 2003
349        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
350        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3520.22    4 August 2003
353        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
355        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
357        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
359        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
361        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
363        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
365        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
366        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3680.21    17 July 2003
369        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
370        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
371        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
372        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
374        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
375        version that didn't have unescape.
377        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
378        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
380        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
381        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
382        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
383        one, not the original one every time.
3850.20    10 July 2003
386        Fixed all the email addresses to
3880.19    10 July 2003
389        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
391        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
393        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
395        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
396          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
398        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
399        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
400        in your config file.
402        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
404        Implemented minor edits.
406        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4080.18    16 June 2003
409        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4110.17    15 June 2003
412        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
414        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4160.16    26 May 2003
417        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
419        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
420        Save button as well as the Preview one.
422        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
423        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4250.15    18 May 2003
426        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
427        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4290.14    17 May 2003
430        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
431        the idea.
433        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
434        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
435        us to find bugs in.
4370.13    17 May 2003
438        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
440        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
442        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
444        Added edit field for map link.
4460.12    14 May 2003
447        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
448        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4500.11    14 May 2003
451        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
453        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
454        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4560.10    11 May 2003
457        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
458        node versions.
460        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
461        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4630.09    10 May 2003
464        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
465        pub crawl generator.
467        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
468        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
469        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
470        process, hurrah.
4720.08    3 May 2003
473        Added fuzzy matching capability -
474          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
475        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
477        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
478        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
479        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
481        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
482        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
4840.07    3 May 2003
485        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
486        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
488        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
489        or Category Locales as appropriate.
491        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
492        grubstreet data.
494        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
495        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
4970.06    2 May 2003
498        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
499        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5010.05    2 May 2003
502        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
503        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
504        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
506        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
507        I think.
509        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5110.04    29 April 2003
512        First public release.
