30.56    14 June 2006
4        Fix bug introduced in feed formatting where Atom feeds would be
5        produced when asked for RSS and vice versa.
70.55    13 June 2006
8        Versioned dependency on Wiki::Toolkit to avoid development
9        versions
10        Support generating feeds of a node's version listing, in addition
11        to feeds of the recent changes. For more information on OpenGuides
12        feeds, see
140.54_02 8 June 2006
15        Pass the feed_listing (currently just recent_changes) through all
16        the feed related code, rather than assuming it'll only ever be
17        recent changes. Will allow other listings of nodes to be handled
18        in the future.
200.54_01 16 May 2006
21        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
22        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
23        not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
24        development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
25        database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
26        process needs some rigorous testing.
280.54    21 April 2006
29        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
310.53    20 April 2006
32        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
33        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
34        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
35        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
36          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
37        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
38        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.
39        #93 Upgrade to new Google Maps API (for smaller javascript download)
40        #103 Fix empty Category/Locale list bug.
41        #54 Fix RSS redirection for backwards compatibility.
42        #79 Partial fix to help combat HTML spam
43        #56 Add licence config variables
450.52    5 March 2006
46        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
47          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
48          to reflect this.
49        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
50        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
51        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
52        Fix missing bracket in
53        Add custom_node template just below main content in
54        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
55          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
56          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
57        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
58        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
59        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
60        Fix test failure with 3.16.
61        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
62        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
640.51    15 November 2005
65        Important changes:
66          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
67            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
68            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
69            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
70            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
71            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
73        New features:
74          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
75            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
76            a blank page.
77          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
78            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
79            - Show node summary in search results.
80          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
81          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
83        RDF bugfixes:
84          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
85          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
86          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
87          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
88            not the RecentChanges page URL.
90        Search bugfixes:
91          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
92            lat/lon was being used.
93          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
94            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
95            search was being done.
97        Minor improvements:
98          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
99            with spaces.
100          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
101            the old page rather than the editing view.
103        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
104          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
105          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
1070.50    2 October 2005
108        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
1100.49    24 July 2005
111        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
112        a test failure)
1140.48    24 July 2005
115        RDF enhancements:
116          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
117            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
118          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
119            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
120          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
121            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
122          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
123            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
124            applications.
125          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
126            to other nodes.
127          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
128            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
129        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
130        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
131          template
132        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
133          informing you of the fact.
134        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
135          node display.
136        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
137          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
138        Replace <label> tags in with <span
139          class="metadata_label">.
140        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
141          pointing to each node.
142        Prevent redirect loops.
143        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
1450.47    15 January 2005
146        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
147        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
148        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
149        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
150        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
151        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
152        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
153        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
154        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
155        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1570.46    21 December 2004
158        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
159          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
160        Update supersearch help text URL.
161        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
162        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
163          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
164        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
165        Fixed distance search paging bug.
166        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
167          trailing spaces in the name.
168        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
169          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
170          Class::Accessor.
171        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
172          is a risky activity.
173        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
174        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
175          distribution.
1770.45    1 December 2004
178        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
179        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
180          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
181          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
182          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
183          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
184          distance searches will work.
185        In less exciting news:
186          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
187          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
188          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
1900.44    17 November 2004
191        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
192          not completely removed before.
193        Improved the efficiency of the search.
194        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
195          and have changed.
196        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
197        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
1990.43    21 October 2004
200        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
2020.42    20 October 2004
203        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
204          find_within_distance action.
205        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
206        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
207        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
208          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
209          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
210          introduced in 0.41.
211        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
2130.41    21 September 2004
214        Added backlinks link to navbar.
215        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
216        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
217          installed as index.cgi
218        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
219        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
220          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
221          for details).
222        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
223        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
224          @RSS;username=Kake
225        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
2270.40    18 September 2004
228        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
229          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
230        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
231        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
232        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
233        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
234        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
235        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
236        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
237        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
2390.39    15 September 2004
240        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
241        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
242          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
243          you will need to do two things:
244            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
245              directory) or use a different index directory
246            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
247              directory of this distribution)
2490.38    26 July 2004
250        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
251          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2530.37    23 July 2004
254        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
255          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
256          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2580.36    13 July 2004
259        Added diff link to node template.
260        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
261        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2630.35    25 June 2004
264        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
265          use this.
2670.34    25 June 2004
268        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
269          this from the node history page.
2710.33    20 June 2004
272        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
273          the previous one or the current one.
274        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
275          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
276          for most of them.
277        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
278          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
279          by Steve Jolly).
280        Removed inline style from You will need to add
281          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
282          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
283          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
284          td#map changed to td#map_link in
285        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
286          Advanced Search).
287        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
289        Added new preference for default edit type.
290        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
291          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
292        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
293          history) pages.
2950.32    7 June 2004
296        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
297          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
298          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
299          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
300          created accidentally.
3020.31    09 May 2004
303        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
304          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
305          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
306            @RSS []
308        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
309          Accessibility Guidelines (
310          - summaries for all HTML tables
311          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
312            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
313            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
314            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
315            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
316            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
317            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
318          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
319            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
320            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
321            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
322            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
323            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
325        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
326          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
328        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
329          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
330          - empty tags are no longer generated
331          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
332            node RDF view
333          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
334          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
335          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
336          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
337            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
338            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
339            FOAF topics)
340          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
342        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
343          SQLite databases.
345        Doc fix for private installations.
347        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
348          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
349          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
351        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
353        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
354          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
355          be distributing it.
3570.30    29 December 2003
358        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
359          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
360          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
362        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
363          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
364          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
365          of navigation bar is consistent.
366          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
367          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
368          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
369          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
370          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
371          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
373        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
374          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
375          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
376          documentation you can provide.
378        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
379          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
381        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
383        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
385        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
387        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
3890.29    8 November 2003
390        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
392 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
393          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
395 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
3970.28    1 November 2003
398        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
400        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
401        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
402          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
4040.27    1 November 2003
405        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
407        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
409        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
410        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
4120.26    9 October 2003
413        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
414          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
416        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
418        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
420        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
421          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
4230.25    23 September 2003
424        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
426        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
427          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
429        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
430          have been - skip them for now.
4320.24    8 September 2003
433        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
435        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
436          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
437        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
4390.23    4 August 2003
440        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
441        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
4430.22    4 August 2003
444        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
446        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
448        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
450        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
452        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
454        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
456        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
457        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4590.21    17 July 2003
460        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
461        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
462        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
463        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
465        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
466        version that didn't have unescape.
468        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
469        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
471        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
472        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
473        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
474        one, not the original one every time.
4760.20    10 July 2003
477        Fixed all the email addresses to
4790.19    10 July 2003
480        Extra checks that script_url ends in a '/'.
482        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
484        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
486        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
487          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
489        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
490        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
491        in your config file.
493        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
495        Implemented minor edits.
497        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
4990.18    16 June 2003
500        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
5020.17    15 June 2003
503        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
505        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
5070.16    26 May 2003
508        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
510        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
511        Save button as well as the Preview one.
513        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
514        instead of decimal (requested by James).
5160.15    18 May 2003
517        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
518        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
5200.14    17 May 2003
521        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
522        the idea.
524        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
525        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
526        us to find bugs in.
5280.13    17 May 2003
529        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
531        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
533        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
535        Added edit field for map link.
5370.12    14 May 2003
538        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
539        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
5410.11    14 May 2003
542        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
544        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
545        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
5470.10    11 May 2003
548        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
549        node versions.
551        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
552        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5540.09    10 May 2003
555        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
556        pub crawl generator.
558        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
559        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
560        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
561        process, hurrah.
5630.08    3 May 2003
564        Added fuzzy matching capability -
565          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
566        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
568        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
569        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
570        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
572        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
573        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5750.07    3 May 2003
576        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
577        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
579        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
580        or Category Locales as appropriate.
582        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
583        grubstreet data.
585        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
586        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
5880.06    2 May 2003
589        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
590        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
5920.05    2 May 2003
593        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
594        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
595        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
597        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
598        I think.
600        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
6020.04    29 April 2003
603        First public release.
