30.55    13 June 2006
4        Versioned dependency on Wiki::Toolkit to avoid development
5        versions
6
70.54_02 8 June 2006
8        Pass the feed_listing (currently just recent_changes) through all
9        the feed related code, rather than assuming it'll only ever be
10        recent changes. Will allow other listings of nodes to be handled
11        in the future.
12
130.54_01 16 May 2006
14        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
15        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
16        not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
17        development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
18        database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
19        process needs some rigorous testing.
20
210.54    21 April 2006
22        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
23
240.53    20 April 2006
25        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
26        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
27        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
28        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
29          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
30        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
31        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.
32        #93 Upgrade to new Google Maps API (for smaller javascript download)
33        #103 Fix empty Category/Locale list bug.
34        #54 Fix RSS redirection for backwards compatibility.
35        #79 Partial fix to help combat HTML spam
36        #56 Add licence config variables
37
380.52    5 March 2006
39        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
40          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
41          to reflect this.
42        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
43        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
44        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
45        Fix missing bracket in node.tt.
46        Add custom_node template just below main content in node.tt.
47        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
48          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
49          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
50        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
51        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
52        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
53        Fix test failure with CGI.pm 3.16.
54        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
55        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
56
570.51    15 November 2005
58        Important changes:
59          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
60            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
61            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
62            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
63            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
64            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
65
66        New features:
67          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
68            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
69            a blank page.
70          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
71            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
72            - Show node summary in search results.
73          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
74          * RSS feed now contains DOAP (http://usefulinc.com/doap) metadata.
75       
76        RDF bugfixes:
77          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
78          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
79          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
80          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
81            not the RecentChanges page URL.
82       
83        Search bugfixes:
84          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
85            lat/lon was being used.
86          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
87            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
88            search was being done.
89       
90        Minor improvements:
91          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
92            with spaces.
93          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
94            the old page rather than the editing view.
95       
96        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
97          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
98          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
99       
1000.50    2 October 2005
101        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
102       
1030.49    24 July 2005
104        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
105        a test failure)
106
1070.48    24 July 2005
108        RDF enhancements:
109          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
110            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
111          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
112            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
113          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
114            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
115          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
116            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
117            applications.
118          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
119            to other nodes.
120          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
121            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
122        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
123        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
124          template plain_index.tt.
125        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
126          informing you of the fact.
127        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
128          node display.
129        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
130          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
131        Replace <label> tags in display_metadata.tt with <span
132          class="metadata_label">.
133        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
134          pointing to each node.
135        Prevent redirect loops.
136        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
137
1380.47    15 January 2005
139        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
140        Extended config changes to examples/reindex.pl (thanks jimbo).
141        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
142        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
143        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
144        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
145        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
146        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
147        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
148        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
149
1500.46    21 December 2004
151        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
152          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
153        Update supersearch help text URL.
154        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
155        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
156          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
157        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
158        Fixed distance search paging bug.
159        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
160          trailing spaces in the name.
161        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
162          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
163          Class::Accessor.
164        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
165          is a risky activity.
166        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
167        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
168          distribution.
169       
1700.45    1 December 2004
171        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
172        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
173          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
174          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
175          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
176          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
177          distance searches will work.
178        In less exciting news:
179          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
180          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
181          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
182
1830.44    17 November 2004
184        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
185          not completely removed before.
186        Improved the efficiency of the search.
187        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
188          and supersearch.tt have changed.
189        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
190        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
191
1920.43    21 October 2004
193        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
194
1950.42    20 October 2004
196        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
197          find_within_distance action.
198        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
199        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
200        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
201          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
202          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
203          introduced in 0.41.
204        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
205
2060.41    21 September 2004
207        Added backlinks link to navbar.
208        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
209        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
210          installed as index.cgi
211        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
212        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
213          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
214          for details).
215        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
216        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
217          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
218        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
219
2200.40    18 September 2004
221        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
222          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
223        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
224        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
225        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
226        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
227        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
228        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
229        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
230        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
231
2320.39    15 September 2004
233        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
234        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
235          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
236          you will need to do two things:
237            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
238              directory) or use a different index directory
239            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
240              directory of this distribution)
241
2420.38    26 July 2004
243        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
244          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
245
2460.37    23 July 2004
247        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
248          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
249          avoid escapeHTML bug.
250
2510.36    13 July 2004
252        Added diff link to node template.
253        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
254        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
255
2560.35    25 June 2004
257        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
258          use this.
259
2600.34    25 June 2004
261        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
262          this from the node history page.
263
2640.33    20 June 2004
265        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
266          the previous one or the current one.
267        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
268          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
269          for most of them.
270        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
271          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
272          by Steve Jolly).
273        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
274          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
275          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
276          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
277          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
278        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
279          Advanced Search).
280        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
281          OpenGuides.pm.
282        Added new preference for default edit type.
283        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
284          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
285        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
286          history) pages.
287
2880.32    7 June 2004
289        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
290          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
291          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
292          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
293          created accidentally.
294
2950.31    09 May 2004
296        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
297          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
298          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
299            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
300       
301        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
302          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
303          - summaries for all HTML tables
304          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
305            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
306            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
307            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
308            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
309            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
310            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
311          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
312            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
313            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
314            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
315            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
316            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
317
318        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
319          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
320
321        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
322          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
323          - empty tags are no longer generated
324          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
325            node RDF view
326          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
327          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
328          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
329          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
330            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
331            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
332            FOAF topics)
333          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
334
335        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
336          SQLite databases.
337
338        Doc fix for private installations.
339
340        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
341          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
342          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
343
344        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
345
346        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
347          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
348          be distributing it.
349
3500.30    29 December 2003
351        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
352          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
353          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
354
355        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
356          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
357          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
358          of navigation bar is consistent.
359          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
360          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
361          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
362          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
363          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
364          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
365
366        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
367          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
368          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
369          documentation you can provide.
370
371        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
372          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
373
374        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
375
376        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
377
378        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
379
380        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
381
3820.29    8 November 2003
383        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
384
385        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
386          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
387
388        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
389
3900.28    1 November 2003
391        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
392
393        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
394        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
395          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
396
3970.27    1 November 2003
398        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
399
400        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
401
402        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
403        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
404
4050.26    9 October 2003
406        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
407          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
408
409        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
410
411        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
412
413        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
414          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
415
4160.25    23 September 2003
417        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
418
419        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
420          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
421
422        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
423          have been - skip them for now.
424
4250.24    8 September 2003
426        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
427
428        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
429          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
430        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
431
4320.23    4 August 2003
433        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
434        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
435
4360.22    4 August 2003
437        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
438
439        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
440
441        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
442
443        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
444
445        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
446
447        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
448
449        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
450        footer (CPAN request 3110).
451
4520.21    17 July 2003
453        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
454        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
455        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
456        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
457
458        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
459        version that didn't have unescape.
460
461        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
462        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
463
464        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
465        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
466        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
467        one, not the original one every time.
468
4690.20    10 July 2003
470        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
471
4720.19    10 July 2003
473        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
474
475        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
476
477        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
478
479        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
480          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
481
482        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
483        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
484        in your config file.
485
486        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
487
488        Implemented minor edits.
489
490        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
491
4920.18    16 June 2003
493        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
494
4950.17    15 June 2003
496        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
497 
498        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
499
5000.16    26 May 2003
501        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
502
503        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
504        Save button as well as the Preview one.
505
506        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
507        instead of decimal (requested by James).
508
5090.15    18 May 2003
510        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
511        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
512
5130.14    17 May 2003
514        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
515        the idea.
516
517        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
518        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
519        us to find bugs in.
520
5210.13    17 May 2003
522        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
523 
524        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
525
526        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
527
528        Added edit field for map link.
529
5300.12    14 May 2003
531        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
532        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
533
5340.11    14 May 2003
535        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
536
537        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
538        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
539
5400.10    11 May 2003
541        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
542        node versions.
543
544        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
545        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
546
5470.09    10 May 2003
548        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
549        pub crawl generator.
550
551        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
552        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
553        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
554        process, hurrah.
555
5560.08    3 May 2003
557        Added fuzzy matching capability -
558          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
559        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
560
561        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
562        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
563        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
564
565        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
566        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
567
5680.07    3 May 2003
569        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
570        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
571
572        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
573        or Category Locales as appropriate.
574
575        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
576        grubstreet data.
577
578        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
579        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
580
5810.06    2 May 2003
582        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
583        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
584
5850.05    2 May 2003
586        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
587        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
588        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
589
590        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
591        I think.
592
593        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
594
5950.04    29 April 2003
596        First public release.
