30.55    13 June 2006
4        Versioned dependency on Wiki::Toolkit to avoid development
5        versions
6        Support generating feeds of a node's version listing, in addition
7        to feeds of the recent changes. For more information on OpenGuides
8        feeds, see http://dev.openguides.org/wiki/FeedsIntro
9
100.54_02 8 June 2006
11        Pass the feed_listing (currently just recent_changes) through all
12        the feed related code, rather than assuming it'll only ever be
13        recent changes. Will allow other listings of nodes to be handled
14        in the future.
15
160.54_01 16 May 2006
17        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
18        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
19        not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
20        development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
21        database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
22        process needs some rigorous testing.
23
240.54    21 April 2006
25        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
26
270.53    20 April 2006
28        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
29        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
30        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
31        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
32          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
33        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
34        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.
35        #93 Upgrade to new Google Maps API (for smaller javascript download)
36        #103 Fix empty Category/Locale list bug.
37        #54 Fix RSS redirection for backwards compatibility.
38        #79 Partial fix to help combat HTML spam
39        #56 Add licence config variables
40
410.52    5 March 2006
42        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
43          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
44          to reflect this.
45        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
46        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
47        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
48        Fix missing bracket in node.tt.
49        Add custom_node template just below main content in node.tt.
50        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
51          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
52          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
53        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
54        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
55        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
56        Fix test failure with CGI.pm 3.16.
57        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
58        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
59
600.51    15 November 2005
61        Important changes:
62          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
63            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
64            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
65            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
66            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
67            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
68
69        New features:
70          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
71            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
72            a blank page.
73          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
74            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
75            - Show node summary in search results.
76          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
77          * RSS feed now contains DOAP (http://usefulinc.com/doap) metadata.
78       
79        RDF bugfixes:
80          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
81          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
82          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
83          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
84            not the RecentChanges page URL.
85       
86        Search bugfixes:
87          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
88            lat/lon was being used.
89          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
90            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
91            search was being done.
92       
93        Minor improvements:
94          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
95            with spaces.
96          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
97            the old page rather than the editing view.
98       
99        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
100          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
101          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
102       
1030.50    2 October 2005
104        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
105       
1060.49    24 July 2005
107        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
108        a test failure)
109
1100.48    24 July 2005
111        RDF enhancements:
112          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
113            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
114          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
115            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
116          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
117            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
118          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
119            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
120            applications.
121          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
122            to other nodes.
123          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
124            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
125        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
126        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
127          template plain_index.tt.
128        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
129          informing you of the fact.
130        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
131          node display.
132        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
133          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
134        Replace <label> tags in display_metadata.tt with <span
135          class="metadata_label">.
136        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
137          pointing to each node.
138        Prevent redirect loops.
139        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
140
1410.47    15 January 2005
142        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
143        Extended config changes to examples/reindex.pl (thanks jimbo).
144        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
145        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
146        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
147        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
148        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
149        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
150        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
151        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
152
1530.46    21 December 2004
154        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
155          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
156        Update supersearch help text URL.
157        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
158        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
159          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
160        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
161        Fixed distance search paging bug.
162        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
163          trailing spaces in the name.
164        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
165          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
166          Class::Accessor.
167        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
168          is a risky activity.
169        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
170        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
171          distribution.
172       
1730.45    1 December 2004
174        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
175        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
176          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
177          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
178          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
179          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
180          distance searches will work.
181        In less exciting news:
182          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
183          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
184          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
185
1860.44    17 November 2004
187        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
188          not completely removed before.
189        Improved the efficiency of the search.
190        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that node.tt
191          and supersearch.tt have changed.
192        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
193        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
194
1950.43    21 October 2004
196        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
197
1980.42    20 October 2004
199        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
200          find_within_distance action.
201        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
202        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
203        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
204          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
205          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
206          introduced in 0.41.
207        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved node.tt.
208
2090.41    21 September 2004
210        Added backlinks link to navbar.
211        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
212        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
213          installed as index.cgi
214        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
215        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
216          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
217          for details).
218        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
219        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
220          @RSS http://london.openguides.org/?action=rss;username=Kake
221        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
222
2230.40    18 September 2004
224        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
225          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
226        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
227        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
228        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
229        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
230        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
231        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
232        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
233        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
234
2350.39    15 September 2004
236        Split commit_node out into OpenGuides.pm in preparation for spam filter
237        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
238          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
239          you will need to do two things:
240            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
241              directory) or use a different index directory
242            - reindex your entire wiki (see reindex.pl in the examples/
243              directory of this distribution)
244
2450.38    26 July 2004
246        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
247          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
248
2490.37    23 July 2004
250        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
251          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require CGI.pm 2.92 to
252          avoid escapeHTML bug.
253
2540.36    13 July 2004
255        Added diff link to node template.
256        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
257        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
258
2590.35    25 June 2004
260        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
261          use this.
262
2630.34    25 June 2004
264        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
265          this from the node history page.
266
2670.33    20 June 2004
268        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
269          the previous one or the current one.
270        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
271          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
272          for most of them.
273        Fixed template bug in display_metadata.tt that was stopping map
274          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
275          by Steve Jolly).
276        Removed inline style from recent_changes.tt. You will need to add
277          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
278          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
279          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
280          td#map changed to td#map_link in edit_conflict.tt.
281        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
282          Advanced Search).
283        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
284          OpenGuides.pm.
285        Added new preference for default edit type.
286        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
287          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
288        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
289          history) pages.
290
2910.32    7 June 2004
292        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
293          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
294          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
295          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
296          created accidentally.
297
2980.31    09 May 2004
299        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
300          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
301          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
302            @RSS [http://example.com/example.rss]
303       
304        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
305          Accessibility Guidelines (http://www.w3.org/TR/WAI-WEBCONTENT/):
306          - summaries for all HTML tables
307          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
308            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
309            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
310            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
311            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
312            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
313            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
314          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
315            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
316            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
317            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
318            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
319            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
320
321        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
322          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
323
324        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
325          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
326          - empty tags are no longer generated
327          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
328            node RDF view
329          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
330          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
331          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
332          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
333            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
334            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
335            FOAF topics)
336          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
337
338        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
339          SQLite databases.
340
341        Doc fix for private installations.
342
343        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
344          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
345          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
346
347        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
348
349        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
350          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed OpenGuides::Diff.pm as we should not
351          be distributing it.
352
3530.30    29 December 2003
354        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
355          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
356          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
357
358        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
359          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
360          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
361          of navigation bar is consistent.
362          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
363          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
364          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
365          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
366          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
367          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
368
369        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
370          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
371          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
372          documentation you can provide.
373
374        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
375          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
376
377        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
378
379        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
380
381        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
382
383        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
384
3850.29    8 November 2003
386        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
387
388        Diff.pm now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
389          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
390
391        SuperSearch.pm change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
392
3930.28    1 November 2003
394        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
395
396        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
397        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
398          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
399
4000.27    1 November 2003
401        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
402
403        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
404
405        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
406        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of SuperSearch.pm for details.
407
4080.26    9 October 2003
409        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
410          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
411
412        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
413
414        Changed CGI.pm version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
415
416        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
417          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
418
4190.25    23 September 2003
420        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
421
422        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
423          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
424
425        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
426          have been - skip them for now.
427
4280.24    8 September 2003
429        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
430
431        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of CGI.pm to avoid
432          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
433        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
434
4350.23    4 August 2003
436        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
437        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
438
4390.22    4 August 2003
440        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
441
442        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
443
444        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
445
446        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
447
448        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
449
450        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
451
452        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
453        footer (CPAN request 3110).
454
4550.21    17 July 2003
456        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
457        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
458        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
459        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
460
461        Added version number to CGI.pm prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
462        version that didn't have unescape.
463
464        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
465        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
466
467        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
468        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
469        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
470        one, not the original one every time.
471
4720.20    10 July 2003
473        Fixed all the email addresses to openguides-dev@openguides.org.
474
4750.19    10 July 2003
476        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
477
478        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
479
480        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
481
482        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
483          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
484
485        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
486        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
487        in your config file.
488
489        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
490
491        Implemented minor edits.
492
493        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
494
4950.18    16 June 2003
496        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for CPAN.pm users.
497
4980.17    15 June 2003
499        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
500 
501        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
502
5030.16    26 May 2003
504        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
505
506        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
507        Save button as well as the Preview one.
508
509        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
510        instead of decimal (requested by James).
511
5120.15    18 May 2003
513        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
514        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
515
5160.14    17 May 2003
517        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
518        the idea.
519
520        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
521        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
522        us to find bugs in.
523
5240.13    17 May 2003
525        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
526 
527        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
528
529        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
530
531        Added edit field for map link.
532
5330.12    14 May 2003
534        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
535        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
536
5370.11    14 May 2003
538        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
539
540        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
541        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
542
5430.10    11 May 2003
544        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
545        node versions.
546
547        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
548        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
549
5500.09    10 May 2003
551        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
552        pub crawl generator.
553
554        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
555        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
556        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
557        process, hurrah.
558
5590.08    3 May 2003
560        Added fuzzy matching capability -
561          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
562        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
563
564        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
565        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
566        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
567
568        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
569        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
570
5710.07    3 May 2003
572        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
573        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
574
575        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
576        or Category Locales as appropriate.
577
578        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
579        grubstreet data.
580
581        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
582        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
583
5840.06    2 May 2003
585        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
586        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
587
5880.05    2 May 2003
589        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
590        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
591        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
592
593        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
594        I think.
595
596        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
597
5980.04    29 April 2003
599        First public release.
