23
240.52    5 March 2006
25        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
26          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
27          to reflect this.
28        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
29        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
30        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
31        Fix missing bracket in node.tt.
32        Add custom_node template just below main content in node.tt.
33        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
34          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
35          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
36        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
37        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
38        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
39        Fix test failure with CGI.pm 3.16.
40        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
41        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
42
430.51    15 November 2005
44        Important changes:
45          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
46            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
47            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
48            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
49            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
50            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
51
52        New features:
53          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
54            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
55            a blank page.
56          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
57            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
58            - Show node summary in search results.
59          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
60          * RSS feed now contains DOAP (http://usefulinc.com/doap) metadata.
61       
62        RDF bugfixes:
63          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
64          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
65          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
66          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
67            not the RecentChanges page URL.
68       
69        Search bugfixes:
70          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
71            lat/lon was being used.
72          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
73            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
74            search was being done.
75       
76        Minor improvements:
77          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
78            with spaces.
79          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
80            the old page rather than the editing view.
81       
82        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
83          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
84          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
85       
860.50    2 October 2005
87        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
88       
890.49    24 July 2005
90        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
91        a test failure)
92
930.48    24 July 2005
94        RDF enhancements:
95          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
96            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
97          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
98            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
99          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
100            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
101          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
102            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
103            applications.
104          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
105            to other nodes.
106          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
107            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
108        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
109        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
110          template plain_index.tt.
111        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
112          informing you of the fact.
113        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
114          node display.
115        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
116          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
117        Replace <label> tags in display_metadata.tt with <span
118          class="metadata_label">.
119        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
120          pointing to each node.
121        Prevent redirect loops.
122        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
123
1240.47    15 January 2005
125        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
126        Extended config changes to examples/reindex.pl (thanks jimbo).
127        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
128        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
129        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
130        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
131        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
132        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
133        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
134        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
135
1360.46    21 December 2004
137        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
138          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
139        Update supersearch help text URL.
140        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
141        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
142          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
143        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
144        Fixed distance search paging bug.
145        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
146          trailing spaces in the name.
147        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
148          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
149          Class::Accessor.
150        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
151          is a risky activity.
152        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
153        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
154          distribution.
155       
1560.45    1 December 2004
157        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
158        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
159          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
160          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
161          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
162          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
163          distance searches will work.
164        In less exciting news:
165          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
166          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
167          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
168
1690.44    17 November 2004
170        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
171          not completely removed before.
172        Improved the efficiency of the search.
173        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
174          and supersearch.tt have changed.
175        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
176        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
177
1780.43    21 October 2004
179        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
180
1810.42    20 October 2004
182        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
183          find_within_distance action.
184        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
185        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
186        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
187          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
188          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
189          introduced in 0.41.
190        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
191
1920.41    21 September 2004
193        Added backlinks link to navbar.
194        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
195        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
196          installed as index.cgi
197        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
198        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
199          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
200          for details).
201        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
202        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
203          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
204        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
205
2060.40    18 September 2004
207        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
208          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
209        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
210        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
211        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
212        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
213        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
214        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
215        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
216        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
217
2180.39    15 September 2004
219        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
220        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
221          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
222          you will need to do two things:
223            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
224              directory) or use a different index directory
225            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
226              directory of this distribution)
227
2280.38    26 July 2004
229        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
230          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
231
2320.37    23 July 2004
233        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
234          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
235          avoid escapeHTML bug.
236
2370.36    13 July 2004
238        Added diff link to node template.
239        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
240        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
241
2420.35    25 June 2004
243        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
244          use this.
245
2460.34    25 June 2004
247        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
248          this from the node history page.
249
2500.33    20 June 2004
251        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
252          the previous one or the current one.
253        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
254          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
255          for most of them.
256        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
257          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
258          by Steve Jolly).
259        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
260          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
261          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
262          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
263          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
264        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
265          Advanced Search).
266        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
267          OpenGuides.pm.
268        Added new preference for default edit type.
269        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
270          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
271        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
272          history) pages.
273
2740.32    7 June 2004
275        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
276          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
277          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
278          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
279          created accidentally.
280
2810.31    09 May 2004
282        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
283          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
284          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
285            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
286       
287        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
288          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
289          - summaries for all HTML tables
290          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
291            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
292            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
293            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
294            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
295            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
296            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
297          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
298            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
299            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
300            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
301            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
302            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
303
304        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
305          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
306
307        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
308          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
309          - empty tags are no longer generated
310          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
311            node RDF view
312          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
313          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
314          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
315          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
316            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
317            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
318            FOAF topics)
319          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
320
321        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
322          SQLite databases.
323
324        Doc fix for private installations.
325
326        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
327          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
328          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
329
330        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
331
332        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
333          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
334          be distributing it.
335
3360.30    29 December 2003
337        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
338          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
339          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
340
341        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
342          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
343          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
344          of navigation bar is consistent.
345          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
346          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
347          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
348          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
349          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
350          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
351
352        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
353          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
354          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
355          documentation you can provide.
356
357        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
358          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
359
360        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
361
362        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
363
364        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
365
366        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
367
3680.29    8 November 2003
369        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
370
371        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
372          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
373
374        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
375
3760.28    1 November 2003
377        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
378
379        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
380        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
381          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
382
3830.27    1 November 2003
384        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
385
386        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
387
388        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
389        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
390
3910.26    9 October 2003
392        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
393          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
394
395        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
396
397        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
398
399        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
400          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
401
4020.25    23 September 2003
403        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
404
405        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
406          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
407
408        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
409          have been - skip them for now.
410
4110.24    8 September 2003
412        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
413
414        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
415          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
416        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
417
4180.23    4 August 2003
419        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
420        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
421
4220.22    4 August 2003
423        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
424
425        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
426
427        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
428
429        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
430
431        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
432
433        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
434
435        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
436        footer (CPAN request 3110).
437
4380.21    17 July 2003
439        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
440        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
441        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
442        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
443
444        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
445        version that didn't have unescape.
446
447        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
448        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
449
450        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
451        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
452        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
453        one, not the original one every time.
454
4550.20    10 July 2003
456        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
457
4580.19    10 July 2003
459        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
460
461        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
462
463        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
464
465        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
466          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
467
468        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
469        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
470        in your config file.
471
472        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
473
474        Implemented minor edits.
475
476        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
477
4780.18    16 June 2003
479        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
480
4810.17    15 June 2003
482        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
483 
484        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
485
4860.16    26 May 2003
487        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
488
489        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
490        Save button as well as the Preview one.
491
492        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
493        instead of decimal (requested by James).
494
4950.15    18 May 2003
496        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
497        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
498
4990.14    17 May 2003
500        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
501        the idea.
502
503        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
504        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
505        us to find bugs in.
506
5070.13    17 May 2003
508        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
509 
510        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
511
512        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
513
514        Added edit field for map link.
515
5160.12    14 May 2003
517        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
518        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
519
5200.11    14 May 2003
521        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
522
523        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
524        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
525
5260.10    11 May 2003
527        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
528        node versions.
529
530        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
531        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
532
5330.09    10 May 2003
534        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
535        pub crawl generator.
536
537        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
538        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
539        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
540        process, hurrah.
541
5420.08    3 May 2003
543        Added fuzzy matching capability -
544          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
545        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
546
547        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
548        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
549        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
550
551        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
552        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
553
5540.07    3 May 2003
555        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
556        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
557
558        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
559        or Category Locales as appropriate.
560
561        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
562        grubstreet data.
563
564        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
565        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
566
5670.06    2 May 2003
568        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
569        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
570
5710.05    2 May 2003
572        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
573        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
574        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
575
576        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
577        I think.
578
579        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
580
5810.04    29 April 2003
582        First public release.
