170.52    5 March 2006
18        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
19          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
20          to reflect this.
21        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
22        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
23        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
24        Fix missing bracket in
25        Add custom_node template just below main content in
26        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
27          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
28          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
29        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
30        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
31        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
32        Fix test failure with 3.16.
33        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
34        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
360.51    15 November 2005
37        Important changes:
38          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
39            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
40            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
41            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
42            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
43            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
45        New features:
46          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
47            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
48            a blank page.
49          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
50            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
51            - Show node summary in search results.
52          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
53          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
55        RDF bugfixes:
56          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
57          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
58          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
59          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
60            not the RecentChanges page URL.
62        Search bugfixes:
63          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
64            lat/lon was being used.
65          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
66            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
67            search was being done.
69        Minor improvements:
70          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
71            with spaces.
72          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
73            the old page rather than the editing view.
75        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
76          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
77          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
790.50    2 October 2005
80        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
820.49    24 July 2005
83        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
84        a test failure)
860.48    24 July 2005
87        RDF enhancements:
88          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
89            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
90          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
91            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
92          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
93            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
94          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
95            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
96            applications.
97          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
98            to other nodes.
99          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
100            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
101        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
102        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
103          template
104        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
105          informing you of the fact.
106        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
107          node display.
108        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
109          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
110        Replace <label> tags in with <span
111          class="metadata_label">.
112        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
113          pointing to each node.
114        Prevent redirect loops.
115        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
1170.47    15 January 2005
118        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
119        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
120        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
121        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
122        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
123        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
124        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
125        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
126        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
127        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1290.46    21 December 2004
130        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
131          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
132        Update supersearch help text URL.
133        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
134        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
135          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
136        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
137        Fixed distance search paging bug.
138        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
139          trailing spaces in the name.
140        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
141          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
142          Class::Accessor.
143        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
144          is a risky activity.
145        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
146        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
147          distribution.
1490.45    1 December 2004
150        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
151        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
152          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
153          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
154          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
155          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
156          distance searches will work.
157        In less exciting news:
158          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
159          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
160          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1620.44    17 November 2004
163        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
164          not completely removed before.
165        Improved the efficiency of the search.
166        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
167          and have changed.
168        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
169        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1710.43    21 October 2004
172        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1740.42    20 October 2004
175        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
176          find_within_distance action.
177        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
178        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
179        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
180          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
181          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
182          introduced in 0.41.
183        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1850.41    21 September 2004
186        Added backlinks link to navbar.
187        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
188        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
189          installed as index.cgi
190        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
191        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
192          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
193          for details).
194        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
195        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
196          @RSS;username=Kake
197        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
1990.40    18 September 2004
200        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
201          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
202        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
203        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
204        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
205        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
206        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
207        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
208        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
209        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
2110.39    15 September 2004
212        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
213        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
214          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
215          you will need to do two things:
216            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
217              directory) or use a different index directory
218            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
219              directory of this distribution)
2210.38    26 July 2004
222        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
223          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2250.37    23 July 2004
226        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
227          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
228          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2300.36    13 July 2004
231        Added diff link to node template.
232        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
233        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2350.35    25 June 2004
236        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
237          use this.
2390.34    25 June 2004
240        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
241          this from the node history page.
2430.33    20 June 2004
244        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
245          the previous one or the current one.
246        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
247          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
248          for most of them.
249        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
250          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
251          by Steve Jolly).
252        Removed inline style from You will need to add
253          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
254          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
255          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
256          td#map changed to td#map_link in
257        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
258          Advanced Search).
259        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
261        Added new preference for default edit type.
262        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
263          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
264        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
265          history) pages.
2670.32    7 June 2004
268        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
269          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
270          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
271          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
272          created accidentally.
2740.31    09 May 2004
275        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
276          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
277          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
278            @RSS []
280        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
281          Accessibility Guidelines (
282          - summaries for all HTML tables
283          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
284            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
285            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
286            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
287            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
288            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
289            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
290          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
291            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
292            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
293            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
294            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
295            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
297        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
298          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
300        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
301          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
302          - empty tags are no longer generated
303          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
304            node RDF view
305          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
306          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
307          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
308          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
309            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
310            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
311            FOAF topics)
312          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
314        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
315          SQLite databases.
317        Doc fix for private installations.
319        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
320          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
321          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
323        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
325        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
326          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
327          be distributing it.
3290.30    29 December 2003
330        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
331          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
332          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
334        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
335          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
336          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
337          of navigation bar is consistent.
338          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
339          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
340          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
341          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
342          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
343          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
345        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
346          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
347          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
348          documentation you can provide.
350        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
351          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
353        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
355        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
357        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
359        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3610.29    8 November 2003
362        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
364 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
365          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
367 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3690.28    1 November 2003
370        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
372        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
373        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
374          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3760.27    1 November 2003
377        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
379        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
381        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
382        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3840.26    9 October 2003
385        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
386          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
388        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
390        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
392        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
393          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3950.25    23 September 2003
396        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
398        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
399          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
401        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
402          have been - skip them for now.
4040.24    8 September 2003
405        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
407        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
408          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
409        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
4110.23    4 August 2003
412        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
413        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
4150.22    4 August 2003
416        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
418        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
420        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
422        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
424        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
426        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
428        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
429        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4310.21    17 July 2003
432        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
433        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
434        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
435        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
437        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
438        version that didn't have unescape.
440        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
441        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
443        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
444        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
445        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
446        one, not the original one every time.
4480.20    10 July 2003
449        Fixed all the email addresses to
4510.19    10 July 2003
452        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
454        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.

4790.16    26 May 2003
480        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
482        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
483        Save button as well as the Preview one.
485        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
486        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4880.15    18 May 2003
489        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
490        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4920.14    17 May 2003
493        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
494        the idea.

497        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
498        us to find bugs in.
5000.13    17 May 2003
501        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
503        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
505        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
507        Added edit field for map link.
5090.12    14 May 2003
510        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
511        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
5130.11    14 May 2003
514        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
516        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
517        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
5190.10    11 May 2003
520        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
521        node versions.
523        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
524        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5260.09    10 May 2003
527        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
528        pub crawl generator.
530        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
531        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
532        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
533        process, hurrah.
5350.08    3 May 2003
536        Added fuzzy matching capability -
537          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
538        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
540        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
541        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
542        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
544        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
545        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5470.07    3 May 2003
548        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
549        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
551        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
552        or Category Locales as appropriate.
554        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
555        grubstreet data.
557        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
558        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5600.06    2 May 2003
561        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
562        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5640.05    2 May 2003
565        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
566        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
567        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
569        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
570        I think.
572        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5740.04    29 April 2003
575        First public release.
