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          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
23          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
24          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
25            not the RecentChanges page URL.
27        Search bugfixes:
28          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
29            lat/lon was being used.
30          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude" and
31            "longitude" values to the search template when a distance search
32            was being done.
34        Minor improvements:
35          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message with spaces.
36          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of the old page
37            rather than the editing view.
39        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
40          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
420.50    2 October 2005
43        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
450.49    24 July 2005
46        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
47        a test failure)
490.48    24 July 2005
50        RDF enhancements:
51          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
52            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
53          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
54            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
55          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
56            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
57          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
58            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
59            applications.
60          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
61            to other nodes.
62          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
63            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
64        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
65        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
66          template
67        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
68          informing you of the fact.
69        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
70          node display.
71        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
72          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
73        Replace <label> tags in with <span
74          class="metadata_label">.
75        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
76          pointing to each node.
77        Prevent redirect loops.
78        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
800.47    15 January 2005
81        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
82        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
83        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
84        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
85        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
86        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
87        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
88        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
89        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
90        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
920.46    21 December 2004
93        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
94          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
95        Update supersearch help text URL.
96        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
97        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
98          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
99        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
100        Fixed distance search paging bug.
101        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
102          trailing spaces in the name.
103        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
104          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
105          Class::Accessor.
106        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
107          is a risky activity.
108        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
109        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
110          distribution.
1120.45    1 December 2004
113        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
114        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
115          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
116          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
117          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
118          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
119          distance searches will work.
120        In less exciting news:
121          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
122          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
123          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1250.44    17 November 2004
126        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
127          not completely removed before.
128        Improved the efficiency of the search.
129        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
130          and have changed.
131        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
132        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1340.43    21 October 2004
135        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1370.42    20 October 2004
138        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
139          find_within_distance action.
140        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
141        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
142        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
143          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
144          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
145          introduced in 0.41.
146        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1480.41    21 September 2004
149        Added backlinks link to navbar.
150        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
151        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
152          installed as index.cgi
153        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
154        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
155          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
156          for details).
157        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
158        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
159          @RSS;username=Kake
160        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1620.40    18 September 2004
163        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
164          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
165        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
166        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
167        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
168        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
169        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
170        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
171        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
172        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1740.39    15 September 2004
175        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
176        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
177          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
178          you will need to do two things:
179            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
180              directory) or use a different index directory
181            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
182              directory of this distribution)
1840.38    26 July 2004
185        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
186          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
1880.37    23 July 2004
189        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
190          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
191          avoid escapeHTML bug.
1930.36    13 July 2004
194        Added diff link to node template.
195        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
196        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
1980.35    25 June 2004
199        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
200          use this.
2020.34    25 June 2004
203        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
204          this from the node history page.
2060.33    20 June 2004
207        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
208          the previous one or the current one.
209        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
210          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
211          for most of them.
212        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
213          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
214          by Steve Jolly).
215        Removed inline style from You will need to add
216          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
217          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
218          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
219          td#map changed to td#map_link in
220        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
221          Advanced Search).
222        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
224        Added new preference for default edit type.
225        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
226          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
227        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
228          history) pages.
2300.32    7 June 2004
231        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
232          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
233          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
234          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
235          created accidentally.
2370.31    09 May 2004
238        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
239          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
240          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
241            @RSS []
243        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
244          Accessibility Guidelines (
245          - summaries for all HTML tables
246          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
247            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
248            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
249            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
250            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
251            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
252            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
253          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
254            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
255            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
256            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
257            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
258            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
260        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
261          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
263        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
264          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
265          - empty tags are no longer generated
266          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
267            node RDF view
268          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
269          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
270          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
271          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
272            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
273            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
274            FOAF topics)
275          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
277        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
278          SQLite databases.
280        Doc fix for private installations.
282        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
283          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
284          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
286        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
288        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
289          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
290          be distributing it.
2920.30    29 December 2003
293        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
294          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
295          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
297        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
298          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
299          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
300          of navigation bar is consistent.
301          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
302          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
303          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
304          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
305          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
306          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
308        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
309          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
310          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
311          documentation you can provide.
313        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
314          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
316        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
318        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
320        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
322        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3240.29    8 November 2003
325        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
327 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
328          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
330 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3320.28    1 November 2003
333        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
335        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
336        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
337          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3390.27    1 November 2003
340        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
342        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
344        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
345        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3470.26    9 October 2003
348        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
349          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
351        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
353        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
355        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
356          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3580.25    23 September 2003
359        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
361        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
362          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
364        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
365          have been - skip them for now.
3670.24    8 September 2003
368        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
370        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
371          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
372        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3740.23    4 August 2003
375        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
376        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3780.22    4 August 2003
379        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
381        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
383        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
385        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
387        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
389        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
391        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
392        footer (CPAN request 3110).
3940.21    17 July 2003
395        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
396        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
397        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
398        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
400        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
401        version that didn't have unescape.
403        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
404        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
406        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
407        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
408        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
409        one, not the original one every time.
4110.20    10 July 2003
412        Fixed all the email addresses to
4140.19    10 July 2003
415        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
417        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
419        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
421        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
422          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
424        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
425        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
426        in your config file.
428        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
430        Implemented minor edits.
432        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4340.18    16 June 2003
435        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4370.17    15 June 2003
438        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
440        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4420.16    26 May 2003
443        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
445        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
446        Save button as well as the Preview one.
448        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
449        instead of decimal (requested by James).

456        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
457        the idea.
459        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
460        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
461        us to find bugs in.
4630.13    17 May 2003
464        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
466        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
468        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
470        Added edit field for map link.
4720.12    14 May 2003
473        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
474        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4760.11    14 May 2003
477        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
479        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
480        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4820.10    11 May 2003
483        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
484        node versions.
486        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
487        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
4890.09    10 May 2003
490        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
491        pub crawl generator.
493        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
494        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
495        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
496        process, hurrah.
4980.08    3 May 2003
499        Added fuzzy matching capability -
500          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
501        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
503        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
504        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
505        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
507        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
508        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5100.07    3 May 2003
511        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
512        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
514        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
515        or Category Locales as appropriate.
517        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
518        grubstreet data.
520        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
521        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5230.06    2 May 2003
524        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
525        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5270.05    2 May 2003
528        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
529        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
530        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
532        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
533        I think.
535        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5370.04    29 April 2003
538        First public release.
