DOAP metadata for RSS feed from new CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS

  • Property svn:eol-style set to native
  • Property svn:keywords set to Author Date Id Revision
File size: 23.9 KB
2        Important changes:
3          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
4            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
5            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
6            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
7            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
8            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
10        New features:
11          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
12            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
13            a blank page.
14          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
15            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
16            - Show node summary in search results.
17          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
18          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
20        RDF bugfixes:
21          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
22            (Requirement on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki bumped to 0.073 for
23            associated fix escaping node names in RSS feed.)
24          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
25          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
26          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
27            not the RecentChanges page URL.
29        Search bugfixes:
30          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
31            lat/lon was being used.
32          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude" and
33            "longitude" values to the search template when a distance search
34            was being done.
36        Minor improvements:
37          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message with spaces.
38          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of the old page
39            rather than the editing view.
410.50    2 October 2005
42        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
440.49    24 July 2005
45        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
46        a test failure)
480.48    24 July 2005
49        RDF enhancements:
50          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
51            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
52          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
53            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
54          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
55            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
56          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
57            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
58            applications.
59          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
60            to other nodes.
61          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
62            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
63        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
64        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
65          template
66        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
67          informing you of the fact.
68        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
69          node display.
70        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
71          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
72        Replace <label> tags in with <span
73          class="metadata_label">.
74        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
75          pointing to each node.
76        Prevent redirect loops.
77        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
790.47    15 January 2005
80        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
81        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
82        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
83        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
84        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
85        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
86        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
87        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
88        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
89        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
910.46    21 December 2004
92        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
93          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
94        Update supersearch help text URL.
95        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
96        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
97          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
98        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
99        Fixed distance search paging bug.
100        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
101          trailing spaces in the name.
102        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
103          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
104          Class::Accessor.
105        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
106          is a risky activity.
107        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
108        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
109          distribution.
1110.45    1 December 2004
112        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
113        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
114          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
115          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
116          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
117          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
118          distance searches will work.
119        In less exciting news:
120          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
121          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
122          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1240.44    17 November 2004
125        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
126          not completely removed before.
127        Improved the efficiency of the search.
128        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
129          and have changed.
130        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
131        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1330.43    21 October 2004
134        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1360.42    20 October 2004
137        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
138          find_within_distance action.
139        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
140        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
141        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
142          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
143          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
144          introduced in 0.41.
145        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1470.41    21 September 2004
148        Added backlinks link to navbar.
149        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
150        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
151          installed as index.cgi
152        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
153        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
154          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
155          for details).
156        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
157        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
158          @RSS;username=Kake
159        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1610.40    18 September 2004
162        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
163          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
164        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
165        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
166        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
167        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
168        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
169        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
170        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
171        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1730.39    15 September 2004
174        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
175        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
176          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
177          you will need to do two things:
178            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
179              directory) or use a different index directory
180            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
181              directory of this distribution)
1830.38    26 July 2004
184        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
185          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1870.37    23 July 2004
188        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
189          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
190          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1920.36    13 July 2004
193        Added diff link to node template.
194        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
195        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1970.35    25 June 2004
198        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
199          use this.
2010.34    25 June 2004
202        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
203          this from the node history page.
2050.33    20 June 2004
206        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
207          the previous one or the current one.
208        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
209          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
210          for most of them.
211        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
212          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
213          by Steve Jolly).
214        Removed inline style from You will need to add
215          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
216          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
217          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
218          td#map changed to td#map_link in
219        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
220          Advanced Search).
221        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
223        Added new preference for default edit type.
224        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
225          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
226        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
227          history) pages.
2290.32    7 June 2004
230        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
231          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
232          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
233          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
234          created accidentally.
2360.31    09 May 2004
237        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
238          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
239          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
240            @RSS []
242        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
243          Accessibility Guidelines (
244          - summaries for all HTML tables
245          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
246            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
247            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
248            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
249            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
250            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
251            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
252          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
253            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
254            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
255            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
256            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
257            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
259        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
260          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
262        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
263          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
264          - empty tags are no longer generated
265          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
266            node RDF view
267          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
268          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
269          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
270          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
271            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
272            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
273            FOAF topics)
274          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
276        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
277          SQLite databases.
279        Doc fix for private installations.
281        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
282          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
283          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
285        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
287        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
288          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
289          be distributing it.
2910.30    29 December 2003
292        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
293          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
294          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
296        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
297          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
298          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
299          of navigation bar is consistent.
300          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
301          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
302          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
303          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
304          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
305          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
307        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
308          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
309          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
310          documentation you can provide.
312        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
313          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
315        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
317        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
319        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
321        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3230.29    8 November 2003
324        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
326 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
327          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
329 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3310.28    1 November 2003
332        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
334        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
335        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
336          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3380.27    1 November 2003
339        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
341        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
343        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
344        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3460.26    9 October 2003
347        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
348          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
350        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
352        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
354        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
355          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3570.25    23 September 2003
358        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
360        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
361          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
363        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
364          have been - skip them for now.
3660.24    8 September 2003
367        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
369        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
370          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
371        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3730.23    4 August 2003
374        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
375        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3770.22    4 August 2003
378        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
380        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
382        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
384        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
386        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
388        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
390        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
391        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3930.21    17 July 2003
394        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
395        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
396        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
397        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
399        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
400        version that didn't have unescape.
402        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
403        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
405        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
406        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
407        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
408        one, not the original one every time.
4100.20    10 July 2003
411        Fixed all the email addresses to
4130.19    10 July 2003
414        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
416        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
418        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
420        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
421          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
423        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
424        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
425        in your config file.
427        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
429        Implemented minor edits.
431        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4330.18    16 June 2003
434        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4360.17    15 June 2003
437        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
439        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4410.16    26 May 2003
442        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
444        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
445        Save button as well as the Preview one.
447        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
448        instead of decimal (requested by James).

455        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
456        the idea.
458        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
459        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
460        us to find bugs in.
4620.13    17 May 2003
463        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
465        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
467        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
469        Added edit field for map link.
4710.12    14 May 2003
472        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
473        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4750.11    14 May 2003
476        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
478        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
479        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4810.10    11 May 2003
482        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
483        node versions.
485        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
486        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4880.09    10 May 2003
489        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
490        pub crawl generator.
492        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
493        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
494        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
495        process, hurrah.
4970.08    3 May 2003
498        Added fuzzy matching capability -
499          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
500        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
502        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
503        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
504        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
506        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
507        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5090.07    3 May 2003
510        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
511        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
513        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
514        or Category Locales as appropriate.
516        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
517        grubstreet data.
519        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
520        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5220.06    2 May 2003
523        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
524        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5260.05    2 May 2003
527        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
528        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
529        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
531        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
532        I think.
534        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5360.04    29 April 2003
537        First public release.
