4        Pass the feed_listing (currently just recent_changes) through all
5        the feed related code, rather than assuming it'll only ever be
6        recent changes. Will allow other listings of nodes to be handled
7        in the future.
8
90.54_01 16 May 2006
10        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
11        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
12        not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
13        development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
14        database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
15        process needs some rigorous testing.
16
170.54    21 April 2006
18        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
19
200.53    20 April 2006
21        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
22        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
23        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
24        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
25          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
26        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
27        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.
28        #93 Upgrade to new Google Maps API (for smaller javascript download)
29        #103 Fix empty Category/Locale list bug.
30        #54 Fix RSS redirection for backwards compatibility.
31        #79 Partial fix to help combat HTML spam
32        #56 Add licence config variables
33
340.52    5 March 2006
35        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
36          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
37          to reflect this.
38        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
39        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
40        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
41        Fix missing bracket in node.tt.
42        Add custom_node template just below main content in node.tt.
43        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
44          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
45          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
46        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
47        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
48        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
49        Fix test failure with CGI.pm 3.16.
50        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
51        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
52
530.51    15 November 2005
54        Important changes:
55          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
56            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
57            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
58            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
59            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
60            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
61
62        New features:
63          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
64            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
65            a blank page.
66          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
67            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
68            - Show node summary in search results.
69          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
70          * RSS feed now contains DOAP (http://usefulinc.com/doap) metadata.
71       
72        RDF bugfixes:
73          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
74          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
75          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
76          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
77            not the RecentChanges page URL.
78       
79        Search bugfixes:
80          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
81            lat/lon was being used.
82          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
83            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
84            search was being done.
85       
86        Minor improvements:
87          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
88            with spaces.
89          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
90            the old page rather than the editing view.
91       
92        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
93          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
94          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
95       
960.50    2 October 2005
97        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
98       
990.49    24 July 2005
100        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
101        a test failure)
102
1030.48    24 July 2005
104        RDF enhancements:
105          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
106            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
107          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
108            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
109          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
110            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
111          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
112            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
113            applications.
114          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
115            to other nodes.
116          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
117            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
118        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
119        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
120          template plain_index.tt.
121        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
122          informing you of the fact.
123        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
124          node display.
125        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
126          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
127        Replace <label> tags in display_metadata.tt with <span
128          class="metadata_label">.
129        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
130          pointing to each node.
131        Prevent redirect loops.
132        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
133
1340.47    15 January 2005
135        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
136        Extended config changes to examples/reindex.pl (thanks jimbo).
137        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
138        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
139        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
140        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
141        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
142        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
143        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
144        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
145
1460.46    21 December 2004
147        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
148          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
149        Update supersearch help text URL.
150        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
151        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
152          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
153        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
154        Fixed distance search paging bug.
155        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
156          trailing spaces in the name.
157        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
158          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
159          Class::Accessor.
160        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
161          is a risky activity.
162        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
163        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
164          distribution.
165       
1660.45    1 December 2004
167        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
168        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
169          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
170          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
171          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
172          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
173          distance searches will work.
174        In less exciting news:
175          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
176          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
177          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
178
1790.44    17 November 2004
180        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
181          not completely removed before.
182        Improved the efficiency of the search.
183        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
184          and supersearch.tt have changed.
185        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
186        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
187
1880.43    21 October 2004
189        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
190
1910.42    20 October 2004
192        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
193          find_within_distance action.
194        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
195        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
196        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
197          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
198          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
199          introduced in 0.41.
200        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
201
2020.41    21 September 2004
203        Added backlinks link to navbar.
204        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
205        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
206          installed as index.cgi
207        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
208        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
209          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
210          for details).
211        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
212        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
213          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
214        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
215
2160.40    18 September 2004
217        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
218          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
219        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
220        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
221        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
222        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
223        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
224        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
225        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
226        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
227
2280.39    15 September 2004
229        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
230        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
231          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
232          you will need to do two things:
233            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
234              directory) or use a different index directory
235            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
236              directory of this distribution)
237
2380.38    26 July 2004
239        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
240          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
241
2420.37    23 July 2004
243        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
244          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
245          avoid escapeHTML bug.
246
2470.36    13 July 2004
248        Added diff link to node template.
249        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
250        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
251
2520.35    25 June 2004
253        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
254          use this.
255
2560.34    25 June 2004
257        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
258          this from the node history page.
259
2600.33    20 June 2004
261        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
262          the previous one or the current one.
263        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
264          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
265          for most of them.
266        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
267          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
268          by Steve Jolly).
269        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
270          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
271          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
272          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
273          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
274        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
275          Advanced Search).
276        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
277          OpenGuides.pm.
278        Added new preference for default edit type.
279        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
280          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
281        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
282          history) pages.
283
2840.32    7 June 2004
285        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
286          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
287          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
288          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
289          created accidentally.
290
2910.31    09 May 2004
292        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
293          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
294          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
295            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
296       
297        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
298          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
299          - summaries for all HTML tables
300          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
301            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
302            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
303            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
304            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
305            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
306            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
307          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
308            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
309            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
310            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
311            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
312            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
313
314        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
315          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
316
317        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
318          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
319          - empty tags are no longer generated
320          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
321            node RDF view
322          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
323          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
324          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
325          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
326            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
327            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
328            FOAF topics)
329          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
330
331        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
332          SQLite databases.
333
334        Doc fix for private installations.
335
336        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
337          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
338          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
339
340        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
341
342        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
343          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
344          be distributing it.
345
3460.30    29 December 2003
347        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
348          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
349          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
350
351        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
352          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
353          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
354          of navigation bar is consistent.
355          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
356          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
357          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
358          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
359          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
360          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
361
362        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
363          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
364          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
365          documentation you can provide.
366
367        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
368          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
369
370        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
371
372        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
373
374        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
375
376        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
377
3780.29    8 November 2003
379        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
380
381        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
382          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
383
384        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
385
3860.28    1 November 2003
387        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
388
389        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
390        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
391          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
392
3930.27    1 November 2003
394        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
395
396        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
397
398        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
399        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
400
4010.26    9 October 2003
402        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
403          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
404
405        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
406
407        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
408
409        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
410          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
411
4120.25    23 September 2003
413        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
414
415        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
416          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
417
418        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
419          have been - skip them for now.
420
4210.24    8 September 2003
422        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
423
424        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
425          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
426        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
427
4280.23    4 August 2003
429        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
430        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
431
4320.22    4 August 2003
433        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
434
435        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
436
437        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
438
439        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
440
441        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
442
443        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
444
445        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
446        footer (CPAN request 3110).
447
4480.21    17 July 2003
449        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
450        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
451        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
452        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
453
454        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
455        version that didn't have unescape.
456
457        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
458        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
459
460        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
461        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
462        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
463        one, not the original one every time.
464
4650.20    10 July 2003
466        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
467
4680.19    10 July 2003
469        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
470
471        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
472
473        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
474
475        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
476          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
477
478        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
479        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
480        in your config file.
481
482        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
483
484        Implemented minor edits.
485
486        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
487
4880.18    16 June 2003
489        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
490
4910.17    15 June 2003
492        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
493 
494        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
495
4960.16    26 May 2003
497        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
498
499        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
500        Save button as well as the Preview one.
501
502        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
503        instead of decimal (requested by James).
504
5050.15    18 May 2003
506        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
507        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
508
5090.14    17 May 2003
510        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
511        the idea.
512
513        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
514        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
515        us to find bugs in.
516
5170.13    17 May 2003
518        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
519 
520        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
521
522        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
523
524        Added edit field for map link.
525
5260.12    14 May 2003
527        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
528        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
529
5300.11    14 May 2003
531        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
532
533        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
534        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
535
5360.10    11 May 2003
537        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
538        node versions.
539
540        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
541        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
542
5430.09    10 May 2003
544        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
545        pub crawl generator.
546
547        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
548        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
549        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
550        process, hurrah.
551
5520.08    3 May 2003
553        Added fuzzy matching capability -
554          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
555        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
556
557        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
558        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
559        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
560
561        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
562        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
563
5640.07    3 May 2003
565        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
566        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
567
568        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
569        or Category Locales as appropriate.
570
571        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
572        grubstreet data.
573
574        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
575        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
576
5770.06    2 May 2003
578        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
579        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
580
5810.05    2 May 2003
582        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
583        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
584        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
585
586        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
587        I think.
588
589        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
590
5910.04    29 April 2003
592        First public release.
