30.54_01 16 May 2006
4        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
5        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
6        not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
7        development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
8        database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
9        process needs some rigorous testing.
110.54    21 April 2006
12        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
140.53    20 April 2006
15        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
16        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
17        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
18        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
19          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
20        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
21        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.

26        #56 Add licence config variables
280.52    5 March 2006
29        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
30          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
31          to reflect this.
32        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
33        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
34        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
35        Fix missing bracket in
36        Add custom_node template just below main content in
37        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
38          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
39          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
40        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
41        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
42        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
43        Fix test failure with 3.16.
44        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
45        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
470.51    15 November 2005
48        Important changes:
49          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
50            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
51            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
52            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
53            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
54            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
56        New features:
57          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
58            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
59            a blank page.
60          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
61            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
62            - Show node summary in search results.
63          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
64          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
66        RDF bugfixes:
67          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
68          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
69          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
70          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
71            not the RecentChanges page URL.
73        Search bugfixes:
74          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
75            lat/lon was being used.
76          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
77            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
78            search was being done.
80        Minor improvements:
81          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
82            with spaces.
83          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
84            the old page rather than the editing view.
86        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
87          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
88          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
900.50    2 October 2005
91        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
930.49    24 July 2005
94        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
95        a test failure)
970.48    24 July 2005
98        RDF enhancements:
99          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
100            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
101          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
102            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
103          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
104            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
105          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
106            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
107            applications.
108          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
109            to other nodes.
110          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
111            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
112        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
113        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
114          template
115        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
116          informing you of the fact.
117        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
118          node display.
119        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
120          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
121        Replace <label> tags in with <span
122          class="metadata_label">.
123        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
124          pointing to each node.
125        Prevent redirect loops.
126        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
1280.47    15 January 2005
129        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
130        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
131        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
132        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
133        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
134        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
135        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
136        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
137        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
138        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1400.46    21 December 2004
141        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
142          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
143        Update supersearch help text URL.
144        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
145        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
146          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
147        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
148        Fixed distance search paging bug.
149        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
150          trailing spaces in the name.
151        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
152          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
153          Class::Accessor.
154        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
155          is a risky activity.
156        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
157        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
158          distribution.
1600.45    1 December 2004
161        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
162        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
163          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
164          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
165          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
166          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
167          distance searches will work.
168        In less exciting news:
169          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
170          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
171          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1730.44    17 November 2004
174        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
175          not completely removed before.
176        Improved the efficiency of the search.
177        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
178          and have changed.
179        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
180        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1820.43    21 October 2004
183        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
1850.42    20 October 2004
186        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
187          find_within_distance action.
188        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
189        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
190        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
191          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
192          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
193          introduced in 0.41.
194        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
1960.41    21 September 2004
197        Added backlinks link to navbar.
198        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
199        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
200          installed as index.cgi
201        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
202        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
203          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
204          for details).
205        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
206        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
207          @RSS;username=Kake
208        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
2100.40    18 September 2004
211        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
212          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
213        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
214        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
215        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
216        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
217        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
218        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
219        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
220        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
2220.39    15 September 2004
223        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
224        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
225          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
226          you will need to do two things:
227            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
228              directory) or use a different index directory
229            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
230              directory of this distribution)
2320.38    26 July 2004
233        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
234          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2360.37    23 July 2004
237        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
238          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
239          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2410.36    13 July 2004
242        Added diff link to node template.
243        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
244        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2460.35    25 June 2004
247        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
248          use this.
2500.34    25 June 2004
251        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
252          this from the node history page.
2540.33    20 June 2004
255        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
256          the previous one or the current one.
257        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
258          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
259          for most of them.
260        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
261          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
262          by Steve Jolly).
263        Removed inline style from You will need to add
264          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
265          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
266          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
267          td#map changed to td#map_link in
268        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
269          Advanced Search).
270        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
272        Added new preference for default edit type.
273        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
274          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
275        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
276          history) pages.
2780.32    7 June 2004
279        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
280          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
281          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
282          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
283          created accidentally.
2850.31    09 May 2004
286        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
287          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
288          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
289            @RSS []
291        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
292          Accessibility Guidelines (
293          - summaries for all HTML tables
294          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
295            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
296            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
297            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
298            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
299            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
300            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
301          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
302            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
303            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
304            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
305            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
306            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
308        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
309          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
311        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
312          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
313          - empty tags are no longer generated
314          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
315            node RDF view
316          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
317          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
318          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
319          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
320            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
321            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
322            FOAF topics)
323          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
325        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
326          SQLite databases.
328        Doc fix for private installations.
330        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
331          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
332          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
334        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
336        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
337          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
338          be distributing it.
3400.30    29 December 2003
341        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
342          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
343          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
345        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
346          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
347          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
348          of navigation bar is consistent.
349          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
350          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
351          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
352          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
353          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
354          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
356        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
357          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
358          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
359          documentation you can provide.
361        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
362          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
364        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
366        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
368        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
370        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3720.29    8 November 2003
373        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
375 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
376          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
378 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3800.28    1 November 2003
381        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
383        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
384        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
385          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
3870.27    1 November 2003
388        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
390        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
392        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
393        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
3950.26    9 October 2003
396        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
397          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
399        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
401        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
403        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
404          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
4060.25    23 September 2003
407        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
409        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
410          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
412        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
413          have been - skip them for now.
4150.24    8 September 2003
416        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
418        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
419          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
420        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
4220.23    4 August 2003
423        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
424        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
4260.22    4 August 2003
427        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
429        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
431        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
433        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
435        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
437        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
439        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
440        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4420.21    17 July 2003
443        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
444        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
445        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
446        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
448        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
449        version that didn't have unescape.
451        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
452        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
454        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
455        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
456        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
457        one, not the original one every time.
4590.20    10 July 2003
460        Fixed all the email addresses to
4620.19    10 July 2003
463        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
465        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
467        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
469        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
470          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
472        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
473        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
474        in your config file.
476        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
478        Implemented minor edits.
480        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4820.18    16 June 2003
483        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
4850.17    15 June 2003
486        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
488        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
4900.16    26 May 2003
491        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
493        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
494        Save button as well as the Preview one.
496        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
497        instead of decimal (requested by James).
4990.15    18 May 2003
500        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
501        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
5030.14    17 May 2003
504        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
505        the idea.
507        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
508        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
509        us to find bugs in.
5110.13    17 May 2003
512        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
514        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
516        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
518        Added edit field for map link.
5200.12    14 May 2003
521        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
522        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
5240.11    14 May 2003
525        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
527        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
528        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
5300.10    11 May 2003
531        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
532        node versions.
534        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
535        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5370.09    10 May 2003
538        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
539        pub crawl generator.
541        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
542        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
543        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
544        process, hurrah.
5460.08    3 May 2003
547        Added fuzzy matching capability -
548          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
549        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
551        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
552        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
553        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
555        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
556        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5580.07    3 May 2003
559        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
560        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
562        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
563        or Category Locales as appropriate.
565        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
566        grubstreet data.
568        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
569        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5710.06    2 May 2003
572        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
573        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5750.05    2 May 2003
576        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
577        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
578        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
580        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
581        I think.
583        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
5850.04    29 April 2003
586        First public release.
