200.52    5 March 2006
21        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
22          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
23          to reflect this.
24        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
25        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
26        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
27        Fix missing bracket in
28        Add custom_node template just below main content in
29        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
30          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
31          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
32        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
33        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
34        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
35        Fix test failure with 3.16.
36        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
37        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
390.51    15 November 2005
40        Important changes:
41          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
42            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
43            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
44            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
45            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
46            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
48        New features:
49          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
50            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
51            a blank page.
52          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
53            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
54            - Show node summary in search results.
55          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
56          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
58        RDF bugfixes:
59          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
60          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
61          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
62          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
63            not the RecentChanges page URL.
65        Search bugfixes:
66          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
67            lat/lon was being used.
68          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
69            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
70            search was being done.
72        Minor improvements:
73          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
74            with spaces.
75          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
76            the old page rather than the editing view.
78        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
79          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
80          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
820.50    2 October 2005
83        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
850.49    24 July 2005
86        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
87        a test failure)
890.48    24 July 2005
90        RDF enhancements:
91          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
92            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
93          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
94            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
95          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
96            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
97          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
98            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
99            applications.
100          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
101            to other nodes.
102          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
103            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
104        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
105        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
106          template
107        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
108          informing you of the fact.
109        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
110          node display.
111        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
112          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
113        Replace <label> tags in with <span
114          class="metadata_label">.
115        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
116          pointing to each node.
117        Prevent redirect loops.
118        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
1200.47    15 January 2005
121        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
122        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
123        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
124        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
125        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
126        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
127        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
128        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
129        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
130        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1320.46    21 December 2004
133        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
134          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
135        Update supersearch help text URL.
136        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
137        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
138          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
139        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
140        Fixed distance search paging bug.
141        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
142          trailing spaces in the name.
143        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
144          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
145          Class::Accessor.
146        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
147          is a risky activity.
148        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
149        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
150          distribution.
1520.45    1 December 2004
153        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
154        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
155          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
156          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
157          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
158          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
159          distance searches will work.
160        In less exciting news:
161          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
162          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
163          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1650.44    17 November 2004
166        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
167          not completely removed before.
168        Improved the efficiency of the search.
169        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
170          and have changed.
171        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
172        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1740.43    21 October 2004
175        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1770.42    20 October 2004
178        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
179          find_within_distance action.
180        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
181        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
182        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
183          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
184          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
185          introduced in 0.41.
186        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1880.41    21 September 2004
189        Added backlinks link to navbar.
190        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
191        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
192          installed as index.cgi
193        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
194        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
195          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
196          for details).
197        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
198        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
199          @RSS;username=Kake
200        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
2020.40    18 September 2004
203        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
204          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
205        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
206        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
207        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
208        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
209        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
210        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
211        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
212        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
2140.39    15 September 2004
215        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
216        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
217          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
218          you will need to do two things:
219            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
220              directory) or use a different index directory
221            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
222              directory of this distribution)
2240.38    26 July 2004
225        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
226          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2280.37    23 July 2004
229        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
230          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
231          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2330.36    13 July 2004
234        Added diff link to node template.
235        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
236        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2380.35    25 June 2004
239        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
240          use this.
2420.34    25 June 2004
243        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
244          this from the node history page.
2460.33    20 June 2004
247        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
248          the previous one or the current one.
249        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
250          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
251          for most of them.
252        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
253          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
254          by Steve Jolly).
255        Removed inline style from You will need to add
256          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
257          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
258          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
259          td#map changed to td#map_link in
260        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
261          Advanced Search).
262        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
264        Added new preference for default edit type.
265        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
266          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
267        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
268          history) pages.
2700.32    7 June 2004
271        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
272          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
273          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
274          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
275          created accidentally.
2770.31    09 May 2004
278        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
279          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
280          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
281            @RSS []
283        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
284          Accessibility Guidelines (
285          - summaries for all HTML tables
286          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
287            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
288            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
289            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
290            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
291            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
292            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
293          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
294            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
295            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
296            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
297            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
298            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
300        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
301          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
303        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
304          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
305          - empty tags are no longer generated
306          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
307            node RDF view
308          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
309          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
310          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
311          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
312            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
313            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
314            FOAF topics)
315          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
317        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
318          SQLite databases.
320        Doc fix for private installations.
322        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
323          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
324          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
326        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
328        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
329          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
330          be distributing it.
3320.30    29 December 2003
333        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
334          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
335          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
337        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
338          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
339          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
340          of navigation bar is consistent.
341          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
342          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
343          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
344          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
345          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
346          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
348        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
349          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
350          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
351          documentation you can provide.
353        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
354          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
356        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
358        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
360        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
362        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3640.29    8 November 2003
365        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
367 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
368          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
370 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3720.28    1 November 2003
373        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
375        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
376        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
377          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3790.27    1 November 2003
380        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
382        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
384        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
385        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3870.26    9 October 2003
388        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
389          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
391        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
393        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
395        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
396          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
3980.25    23 September 2003
399        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
401        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
402          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
404        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
405          have been - skip them for now.
4070.24    8 September 2003
408        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
410        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
411          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
412        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
4140.23    4 August 2003
415        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
416        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
4180.22    4 August 2003
419        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
421        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
423        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
425        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
427        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
429        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
431        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
432        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4340.21    17 July 2003
435        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
436        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
437        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
438        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
440        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
441        version that didn't have unescape.
443        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
444        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
446        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
447        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
448        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
449        one, not the original one every time.
4510.20    10 July 2003
452        Fixed all the email addresses to
4540.19    10 July 2003
455        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.

462          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
464        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
465        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
466        in your config file.

470        Implemented minor edits.
472        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.

4770.17    15 June 2003
478        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
480        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4820.16    26 May 2003
483        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
485        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
486        Save button as well as the Preview one.
488        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
489        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4910.15    18 May 2003
492        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
493        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
4950.14    17 May 2003
496        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
497        the idea.
499        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
500        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
501        us to find bugs in.
5030.13    17 May 2003
504        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
506        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
508        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
510        Added edit field for map link.
5120.12    14 May 2003
513        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
514        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
5160.11    14 May 2003
517        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
519        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
520        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
5220.10    11 May 2003
523        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
524        node versions.
526        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
527        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5290.09    10 May 2003
530        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
531        pub crawl generator.
533        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
534        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
535        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
536        process, hurrah.
5380.08    3 May 2003
539        Added fuzzy matching capability -
540          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
541        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
543        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
544        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
545        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
547        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
548        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5500.07    3 May 2003
551        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
552        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
554        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
555        or Category Locales as appropriate.
557        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
558        grubstreet data.
560        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
561        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5630.06    2 May 2003
564        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
565        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5670.05    2 May 2003
568        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
569        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
570        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
572        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
573        I think.
575        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5770.04    29 April 2003
578        First public release.
