2        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
3          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
4          to reflect this.
5        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
6        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
7        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
8        Fix missing bracket in
9        Add custom_node template just below main content in
110.51    15 November 2005
12        Important changes:
13          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
14            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
15            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
16            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
17            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
18            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
20        New features:
21          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
22            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
23            a blank page.
24          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
25            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
26            - Show node summary in search results.
27          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
28          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
30        RDF bugfixes:
31          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
32          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
33          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
34          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
35            not the RecentChanges page URL.
37        Search bugfixes:
38          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
39            lat/lon was being used.
40          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
41            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
42            search was being done.
44        Minor improvements:
45          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
46            with spaces.
47          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
48            the old page rather than the editing view.
50        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
51          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
52          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
540.50    2 October 2005
55        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
570.49    24 July 2005
58        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
59        a test failure)
610.48    24 July 2005
62        RDF enhancements:
63          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
64            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
65          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
66            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
67          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
68            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
69          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
70            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
71            applications.
72          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
73            to other nodes.
74          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
75            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
76        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
77        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
78          template
79        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
80          informing you of the fact.
81        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
82          node display.
83        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
84          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
85        Replace <label> tags in with <span
86          class="metadata_label">.
87        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
88          pointing to each node.
89        Prevent redirect loops.
90        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
920.47    15 January 2005
93        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
94        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
95        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
96        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
97        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
98        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
99        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
100        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
101        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
102        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1040.46    21 December 2004
105        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
106          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
107        Update supersearch help text URL.
108        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
109        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
110          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
111        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
112        Fixed distance search paging bug.
113        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
114          trailing spaces in the name.
115        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
116          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
117          Class::Accessor.
118        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
119          is a risky activity.
120        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
121        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
122          distribution.
1240.45    1 December 2004
125        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
126        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
127          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
128          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
129          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
130          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
131          distance searches will work.
132        In less exciting news:
133          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
134          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
135          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1370.44    17 November 2004
138        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
139          not completely removed before.
140        Improved the efficiency of the search.
141        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
142          and have changed.
143        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
144        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1460.43    21 October 2004
147        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1490.42    20 October 2004
150        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
151          find_within_distance action.
152        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
153        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
154        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
155          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
156          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
157          introduced in 0.41.
158        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1600.41    21 September 2004
161        Added backlinks link to navbar.
162        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
163        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
164          installed as index.cgi
165        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
166        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
167          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
168          for details).
169        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
170        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
171          @RSS;username=Kake
172        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1740.40    18 September 2004
175        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
176          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
177        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
178        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
179        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
180        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
181        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
182        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
183        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
184        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
1860.39    15 September 2004
187        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
188        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
189          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
190          you will need to do two things:
191            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
192              directory) or use a different index directory
193            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
194              directory of this distribution)
1960.38    26 July 2004
197        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
198          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2000.37    23 July 2004
201        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
202          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
203          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2050.36    13 July 2004
206        Added diff link to node template.
207        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
208        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2100.35    25 June 2004
211        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
212          use this.
2140.34    25 June 2004
215        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
216          this from the node history page.
2180.33    20 June 2004
219        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
220          the previous one or the current one.
221        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
222          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
223          for most of them.
224        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
225          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
226          by Steve Jolly).
227        Removed inline style from You will need to add
228          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
229          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
230          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
231          td#map changed to td#map_link in
232        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
233          Advanced Search).
234        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
236        Added new preference for default edit type.
237        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
238          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
239        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
240          history) pages.
2420.32    7 June 2004
243        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
244          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
245          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
246          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
247          created accidentally.
2490.31    09 May 2004
250        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
251          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
252          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
253            @RSS []
255        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
256          Accessibility Guidelines (
257          - summaries for all HTML tables
258          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
259            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
260            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
261            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
262            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
263            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
264            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
265          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
266            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
267            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
268            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
269            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
270            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
272        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
273          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
275        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
276          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
277          - empty tags are no longer generated
278          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
279            node RDF view
280          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
281          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
282          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
283          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
284            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
285            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
286            FOAF topics)
287          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
289        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
290          SQLite databases.
292        Doc fix for private installations.
294        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
295          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
296          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
298        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
300        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
301          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
302          be distributing it.
3040.30    29 December 2003
305        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
306          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
307          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
309        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
310          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
311          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
312          of navigation bar is consistent.
313          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
314          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
315          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
316          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
317          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
318          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
320        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
321          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
322          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
323          documentation you can provide.
325        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
326          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
328        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
330        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
332        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
334        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3360.29    8 November 2003
337        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
339 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
340          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
342 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3440.28    1 November 2003
345        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
347        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
348        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
349          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3510.27    1 November 2003
352        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
354        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
356        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
357        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3590.26    9 October 2003
360        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
361          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
363        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
365        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
367        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
368          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3700.25    23 September 2003
371        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
373        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
374          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
376        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
377          have been - skip them for now.
3790.24    8 September 2003
380        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
382        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
383          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
384        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
3860.23    4 August 2003
387        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
388        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
3900.22    4 August 2003
391        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
393        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
395        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
397        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
399        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
401        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
403        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
404        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4060.21    17 July 2003
407        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
408        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
409        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
410        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
412        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
413        version that didn't have unescape.
415        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
416        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
418        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
419        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
420        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
421        one, not the original one every time.
4230.20    10 July 2003
424        Fixed all the email addresses to
4260.19    10 July 2003
427        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
429        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
431        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
433        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
434          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
436        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
437        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
438        in your config file.
440        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
442        Implemented minor edits.
444        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4460.18    16 June 2003
447        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4490.17    15 June 2003
450        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
452        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4540.16    26 May 2003
455        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
457        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
458        Save button as well as the Preview one.
460        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
461        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4630.15    18 May 2003
464        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
465        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4670.14    17 May 2003
468        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
469        the idea.
471        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
472        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
473        us to find bugs in.
4750.13    17 May 2003
476        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
478        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
480        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
482        Added edit field for map link.
4840.12    14 May 2003
485        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
486        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
4880.11    14 May 2003
489        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
491        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
492        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
4940.10    11 May 2003
495        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
496        node versions.
498        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
499        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5010.09    10 May 2003
502        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
503        pub crawl generator.
505        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
506        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
507        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
508        process, hurrah.
5100.08    3 May 2003
511        Added fuzzy matching capability -
512          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
513        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
515        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
516        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
517        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
519        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
520        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5220.07    3 May 2003
523        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
524        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
526        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
527        or Category Locales as appropriate.
529        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
530        grubstreet data.
532        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
533        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5350.06    2 May 2003
536        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
537        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5390.05    2 May 2003
540        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
541        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
542        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
544        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
545        I think.
547        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5490.04    29 April 2003
550        First public release.
