20.57    ?? August 2006
3        Lots more Atom and RSS feeds, including for searching
4        Admin interface
5        Nodes missing metadata interface
6        Moderation support (based on Wiki::Toolkit moderation)
7        Please note: the above three functions should be considered unstable,
8          and may change over future releases.
9        Four new config file options: moderation_requires_password,
10          enable_node_image, enable_common_categories, enable_common_locales
11        Search::InvertedIndex support is deprecated as of this release.
12          Please upgrade to Plucene if you are still using it.
13        Tidy up some template bits
150.56    14 June 2006
16        Fix bug introduced in feed formatting where Atom feeds would be
17          produced when asked for RSS and vice versa.
190.55    13 June 2006
20        Versioned dependency on Wiki::Toolkit to avoid development
21          versions
22        Support generating feeds of a node's version listing, in addition
23          to feeds of the recent changes. For more information on OpenGuides
24          feeds, see
260.54_02 8 June 2006
27        Pass the feed_listing (currently just recent_changes) through all
28          the feed related code, rather than assuming it'll only ever be
29          recent changes. Will allow other listings of nodes to be handled
30          in the future.
320.54_01 16 May 2006
33        Support for Atom feeds for RecentChanges.
34        #118 Use Wiki::Toolkit. NOTE this is a development snapshot and is
35          not suitable for production use. It may eat your data! Tests on
36          development mirrors of live data are highly welcomed; the underlying
37          database schema provided by Wiki::Toolkit has changed and the upgrade
38          process needs some rigorous testing.
400.54    21 April 2006
41        #112 Fixed website display bug introduced in 0.53.
430.53    20 April 2006
44        Miscellanous fixes for mod_perl.
45        #42 New "About" screen. Try action=about and action=about;format=rdf.
46        #97 Use "summary" metadata to generate HTML meta descriptions.
47        New OpenGuides::Feed module to handle feed generation (code was
48          previously in OpenGuides::RDF).
49        Generate URIs for locales and contributors in RDF output.
50        #107 Don't display partial http:// URL in preview.
51        #93 Upgrade to new Google Maps API (for smaller javascript download)
52        #103 Fix empty Category/Locale list bug.
53        #54 Fix RSS redirection for backwards compatibility.
54        #79 Partial fix to help combat HTML spam
55        #56 Add licence config variables
570.52    5 March 2006
58        IMPORTANT CHANGE: "supersearch.cgi" is now simply "search.cgi". If you
59          have customisations to your templates, you may need to make changes
60          to reflect this.
61        Rename OpenGuides::SuperSearch to OpenGuides::Search.
62        Use corrent content-type (application/rdf+xml) for all RDF output.
63        Things with opening hours are marked as geospatial in RDF.
64        Fix missing bracket in
65        Add custom_node template just below main content in
66        Google Maps support! There is a new index type,
67          wiki.cgi?action=index;format=map, and maps appear in the node listings
68          (the latter feature is user-configurable).
69        Fix <link> in RSS to point to RecentChanges page, not the feed itself.
70        #67 Default website for a page is now http://
71        Fix mod_perl redirect bug.
72        Fix test failure with 3.16.
73        #87 Edit on mirrored pages now goes to source site
74        #66 Locales in RDF now use dc:title, not foaf:name
760.51    15 November 2005
77        Important changes:
78          * The preferred way to get RecentChanges is now to pass the CGI the
79            parameter "action=rc", rather than just using the page name
80            "RecentChanges". However, this method will still work for the time
81            being. Similarly, the URL parameter for the RecentChanges RSS feed
82            has changed from "action=rss" to "action=rc;format=rss". Requests
83            for the former will be redirected to the latter.
85        New features:
86          * When trying to view a non-existent node, you will now be presented
87            with a message asking if you want to create that node, rather than
88            a blank page.
89          * New "summary" metadata field for one-line summaries of nodes:
90            - Add summary field to RDF as dc:description.
91            - Show node summary in search results.
92          * New "format=raw" option for outputting wiki text of a node.
93          * RSS feed now contains DOAP ( metadata.
95        RDF bugfixes:
96          * Locales, address and summary fields now XML-escaped properly.
97          * Add "address" field that was missing from the RDF node view.
98          * Update URL for Dublin Core elements in RDF index view.
99          * Fix URL in the RSS <channel> element to point to the RSS URL,
100            not the RecentChanges page URL.
102        Search bugfixes:
103          * Fix bug that was breaking coordinate entry fields on search page if
104            lat/lon was being used.
105          * Fix bug in OpenGuides::SuperSearch that wasn't passing "latitude"
106            and "longitude" values to the search template when a distance
107            search was being done.
109        Minor improvements:
110          * Replace underscores in node names in "redirected from" message
111            with spaces.
112          * "Redirected from" message now links to a rendered version of
113            the old page rather than the editing view.
115        Miscellaneous bugfixes:
116          * Fix problem with newer Text::Wikiformat and blank nodes.
117          * Fix bug in navbar template that caused warnings in the tests.
1190.50    2 October 2005
120        Remove rogue ampersand that had crept into the RSS feed.
1220.49    24 July 2005
123        Add updated prerequisite on CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::ModWiki (fixes
124        a test failure)
1260.48    24 July 2005
127        RDF enhancements:
128          * Removed redundant "id" parameter specification from dc:source in
129            rdf:Description in RDF node listings.
130          * Fixed bug that was causing all nodes to be flagged as a
131            geo:SpatialThing whether they were or not.
132          * Ensured that ampersands and greater/less than symbols were properly
133            escaped so as not to be XML-toxic.
134          * Added geo:lat, geo:long and RSS link attributes to items in
135            category/locale listings to facilitate integration with mapping
136            applications.
137          * Added owl:sameAs property to RDF output for nodes that are redirects
138            to other nodes.
139          * RSS feed now has correct timestamp (matching most recent item) and
140            matching Last-Modified HTTP header.
141        Reorder navigation bar to provide more logical groupings.
142        Add "format=plain" option for all-nodes index listing and associated
143          template
144        New message to appear on pages when you have been redirected
145          informing you of the fact.
146        Stop showing potentially very long map URLs in metadata section of
147          node display.
148        Replace ugly obliques in display of categories and locales with more
149          natural commas; change "locale" to "locales" in label.
150        Replace <label> tags in with <span
151          class="metadata_label">.
152        Wanted pages listing now displays, and sorts by, the number of nodes
153          pointing to each node.
154        Prevent redirect loops.
155        Add _ to the list of forbidden characters in node names.
1570.47    15 January 2005
158        Fixed bug with list_all_versions for nodes with only one version.
159        Extended config changes to examples/ (thanks jimbo).
160        Now require CGI::Wiki 0.62 to fix bug with deleting versions.
161        Try to ensure that a .htaccess file protecting wiki.conf is installed.
162        Allow for external URLs for Text Formatting help.
163        Home node recent changes box now flags new entries.
164        Made default city and country be blank; specify them if you want them.
165        Missing PREREQUISITE on Plucene added.
166        Added CSS id "maincontent" to exclude the navbar and footer. Misc
167        template tidying including removing old layout tables.
1690.46    21 December 2004
170        Minor bug fixes: remove bogus edit link on index listings,
171          add missing default behaviour for geolocation
172        Update supersearch help text URL.
173        Add nofollow to robots meta tag.
174        Added new CSS class "node_name" for inline non-hyperlink references
175          to node names - see README.CSS for details.
176        Fix bug with diff display on nodes containing macros.
177        Fixed distance search paging bug.
178        Fixed bug that allowed autocreation of locales and categories with
179          trailing spaces in the name.
180        Config management refactoring. This should not result in any
181          user-visible changes, apart from introducing a new dependency on
182          Class::Accessor.
183        Make it clearer in documentation that overriding factory templates
184          is a risky activity.
185        Update feedback details and include URL of RT queue.
186        Add missing tests to MANIFEST so they are included with the
187          distribution.
1890.45    1 December 2004
190        Made the geolocation stuff work worldwide.  Squeeeeeee!
191        You can now choose between doing your distance calculations with
192          the British National Grid, the Irish National Grid, or a UTM
193          ellipsoid.  If you wish to use anything other than the British
194          National Grid and you have pre-existing location data then you
195          will need to save an edit of each node with location data before
196          distance searches will work.
197        In less exciting news:
198          Fixed bug relating to lat/long representation.
199          Removed debugging warn accidentally left in last release.
200          Fixed some HTML validation errors.
2020.44    17 November 2004
203        Remove all traces of display_categories, which was obsoleted but
204          not completely removed before.
205        Improved the efficiency of the search.
206        Fixed a couple of minor bugs in the search - note that
207          and have changed.
208        Change the default indexer for new installs to Plucene.
209        Only run certain search-related tests if Plucene is installed.
2110.43    21 October 2004
212        Fix broken navbar changes that crept into last release.
2140.42    20 October 2004
215        Handle distance searching with OpenGuides::Supersearch instead of
216          find_within_distance action.
217        Fixed bug with paging on distance-only search (reported by Bob Walker).
218        Improved encapsulation in OpenGuides::Supersearch - accessors.
219        *INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE* Custom templates are now stored in
220          user-definable path, and their names are prefixed with custom_.
221          This only affects you if you have used the custom template support
222          introduced in 0.41.
223        Replace use of CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Geocache with improved
2250.41    21 September 2004
226        Added backlinks link to navbar.
227        Added some anti-robot tags to certain pages.
228        Fixed bug in install procedure - blank script_name should now get
229          installed as index.cgi
230        Added option of munging in custom lib paths on install.
231        Added option of custom templates for footer, license warning
232          on edit form, banner at top of page (see CUSTOMISATION file
233          for details).
234        Added new macro - used as eg @INDEX_LIST [[Locale Fulham]]
235        Also fixed the RSS reader macro - use this as eg
236          @RSS;username=Kake
237        More semantic markup for metadata display - see README.CSS
2390.40    18 September 2004
240        Recent Changes now shows changes in the past 24 hours, past week,
241          past fortnight, and past 30 days.
242        New preferences option to allow Recent Changes visit tracking.
243        Preferences now has an option for when your prefs expire.
244        Navbar added to diff and history pages.
245        The "omit help links" preference now actually works.
246        Set some pages to non-editable and non-deletable that should have been.
247        Recent Changes RSS fixed so "wiki:importance" is set correctly.
248        New "ignore_minor_edits" option for Recent Changes RSS.
249        Added RSS feeds for contributors, locales and categories.
2510.39    15 September 2004
252        Split commit_node out into in preparation for spam filter
253        Added option of using Plucene for searching.  If you want to do this
254          (and it is recommended over the default of Search::InvertedIndex)
255          you will need to do two things:
256            - either delete your old indexes (they're just files in the index
257              directory) or use a different index directory
258            - reindex your entire wiki (see in the examples/
259              directory of this distribution)
2610.38    26 July 2004
262        Major improvements to the search result ordering (thanks to
263          Steve Jolly, Bob Walker and Billy Abbott for test cases).
2650.37    23 July 2004
266        Fixed bug in diff view - the versions are the right way round now...
267          Fixed bug with links in historic view.  Require 2.92 to
268          avoid escapeHTML bug.
2700.36    13 July 2004
271        Added diff link to node template.
272        Fixed case sensitivity bug in index node autocreation.
273        Fixed bug with node history comments not being HTML-escaped.
2750.35    25 June 2004
276        Forgot to add version prerequisite on CGI::Wiki.  Don't use 0.34,
277          use this.
2790.34    25 June 2004
280        Add facility to delete only certain revisions of a page - access
281          this from the node history page.
2830.33    20 June 2004
284        Improve node history page to allow diffing between each version and
285          the previous one or the current one.
286        Test overhauls - you don't need to run the configuration step in
287          order to run the tests now, but you do need to have DBD::SQLite
288          for most of them.
289        Fixed template bug in that was stopping map
290          links being displayed for nodes with no address data (spotted
291          by Steve Jolly).
292        Removed inline style from You will need to add
293          the styles table#recentchanges, td.recentchanges_meta,
294          td.recentchanges_user, td.recentchanges_node_name and
295          td.recentchanges_comment to your stylesheets.
296          td#map changed to td#map_link in
297        Added searching by distance from an arbitrary point (click on
298          Advanced Search).
299        Internal rejigging - extracted some methods from wiki.cgi to
301        Added new preference for default edit type.
302        Reinstate apparently lost change from 0.26 to show IP rather than
303          "Anonymous" in RecentChanges.
304        More informative <title> tags for non-node (e.g. node version
305          history) pages.
3070.32    7 June 2004
308        Change auto-creating behaviour of index nodes (categories and
309          locales): instead of being created on access they are created
310          when the referring node is committed. This fixes compliance with
311          RFC 2616 section 9.1.1 and prevents corrupted index nodes being
312          created accidentally.
3140.31    09 May 2004
315        Created a new macro to allow the embedding of RSS feeds into
316          pages, using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::RSS::Reader. This allows you
317          to do this to produce a list of up to ten hyperlinks:
318            @RSS []
320        Numerous template tweaks to comply with the W3C's Web Content
321          Accessibility Guidelines (
322          - summaries for all HTML tables
323          - labels for all form input elements and some textual additions
324            to templates, such as '/' separators between navbar items,
325            because the guidelines specify links should not only be
326            separated by whitespace. If you don't want these to appear,
327            put the following in your stylesheet and they'll be hidden by
328            CSS (but will still appear for people using textual browsers or
329            screen readers): ".hidden { display: none }".
330          - the "lang" element (a two-letter code identifying the language
331            you're writing pages in) will now be added to the <html> tag on
332            all pages; a new question has been added to the configuration
333            script to ask for it and it will be stored in wiki.conf.
334            ***         YOU WILL NEED TO RUN BUILD.PL AGAIN.          ***
335            *** Remember to keep a backup copy of your old wiki.conf! ***   
337        Improved navigation for search results (next and previous n hits).
338          Removed underscores from page names in search results.
340        Overhauled RDF output. Changes:
341          - everything is no longer classified as a restaurant(!)
342          - empty tags are no longer generated
343          - show categories, locales and OS x/y coords in invididual
344            node RDF view
345          - switch to W3C contact namespace for addressing data
346          - move homepage tag out of wiki metadata
347          - remove nonexistent "gs:" namespace from category indices
348          - logical structure improvements (subjects of pages are now
349            identified as spatial things if they are, or are RDF
350            descriptions if they're not, instead of being anonymous
351            FOAF topics)
352          - include city and country in RDF only for spatial things.
354        Fixed bug that prevented automatic database initialization on
355          SQLite databases.
357        Doc fix for private installations.
359        Removed the following characters from the list of forbidden ones in
360          node names in newpage.cgi (a restriction which dates from all the way
361          back when we were using UseModWiki): " ! $ ^ ~ @ [ ] { }
363        Removed newlines from output of search box macro.
365        Reimplemented diffing using CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff as it seems the
366          change in 0.30 got lost. Removed as we should not
367          be distributing it.
3690.30    29 December 2003
370        Added method to allow admins to delete nodes.  You will need to
371          explicitly enable this option in your wiki.conf, since it brings
372          with it the risk of accidental data loss.
374        Major overhaul of templates - added numerous style hooks.  See
375          examples/ for two stylesheet designs that take advantage of these.
376          Added new banner template for page headers. Also ensured presence
377          of navigation bar is consistent.
378          *** INCOMPATIBLE CHANGE: *** The navbar class in the stylesheet
379          has been renamed to, unsurprisingly, "navbar", for consistency
380          (from "toolbar"). *** YOU WILL NEED TO REWRITE YOUR STYLESHEET. ***
381          You are advised to create a duplicate wiki.cgi that reads its data
382          from your database but its stylesheet and templates from the new
383          ones in order to test them *before* deploying them.
385        Added "FAQ", "How To Get Started" and "Wiki Etiquette" to the
386          navigation, under "Help" - these won't exist unless you create them
387          on your site, so at first the links serve as examples of
388          documentation you can provide.
390        Modified preferences.cgi so that all the help links in the navbar
391          can be hidden, not just the text formatting link.
393        Fixed some HTML validation bugs.
395        Added multiple install and pretty URL notes to INSTALL.
397        Removed pubcrawl stuff from distro for now - it doesn't really work.
399        Changed to use CGI::Wiki::Plugin::Diff instead of OpenGuides::Diff.
4010.29    8 November 2003
402        Expanded section in TROUBLESHOOTING about permissions problems.
404 now absorbs trailing punctuation and spaces into words
405          it is diffing (to give less blocky results).
407 change NOT to use '-' instead of '!'.
4090.28    1 November 2003
410        Allow running sites on SQLite databases.
412        Fixed bug with navbar prompt in Build.PL (CPAN RT #3894).
413        Junked OpenGuides::Config completely to avoid database password
414          leakage, and easier install (CPAN RT #3916).
4160.27    1 November 2003
417        Fixed bug with category/locale indexing - no longer case-sensitive.
419        Fixed bug that had the supersearch results page offering an edit link.
421        Revamp of search syntax to make the SuperSearch UI much more like
422        Google and Alta Vista. See the POD of for details.
4240.26    9 October 2003
425        Modified TROUBLESHOOTING to reflect the correct invocation for
426          Module::Build to install into a private directory.
428        Show IP address for anonymous edits.
430        Changed version dependency for Dom (CPAN bug #3895).
432        Added check to OpenGuides::SuperSearch to stop it trying to
433          retrieve a nonexistent node when the search indexes have screwed up.
4350.25    23 September 2003
436        Applied recent changes fix to front page feed as well.
438        Search box now searches categories and locales as well as title and
439          body - so for example a search on "holborn & pubs" will DTRT.
441        NOT and phrase search tests were passing even though they shouldn't
442          have been - skip them for now.
4440.24    8 September 2003
445        Fix to recent changes so minor changes don't mask major ones.
447        Fixed supersearch.cgi to use a template instead of to avoid
448          weird errors, also turned it into a module and added tests.
449        Strip whitespace from OS co-ords before storing in database.
4510.23    4 August 2003
452        Removed the "POST_CHOMP" option as it was messing up textareas, added
453        a test to make sure this doesn't reoccur.
4550.22    4 August 2003
456        Fixed bug with usernames containing spaces in recent changes/userstats.
458        Try out create_makefile_pl => "passthrough" in Build.PL
460        Minor fixes to tests to make them work with newest UseMod formatter.
462        Prevented "Edit this page" from showing up on category indexes.
464        Set TT "POST_CHOMP" option to strip unnecessary newlines from HTML.
466        Fixed CPAN bug #3085 - quotes in change summary box.
468        Added openguides_version template variable and added it to page
469        footer (CPAN request 3110).
4710.21    17 July 2003
472        We no longer autogenerate a Makefile.PL, since it doesn't pick up
473        all the questions that need to be asked.  Sorry.  Use Module::Build
474        as detailed in INSTALL, since you won't be able to get the right
475        version of Text::WikiFormat installed without it in any case.
477        Added version number to prereq as Alex McLintock hit a
478        version that didn't have unescape.
480        Added a link on RecentChanges to the RSS version, and put an
481        autodiscovery tag for the RSS in the head section.
483        Changed diff feature to hide checksums, which aren't necessary for
484        the user to see. Fixed a minor bug in the node history template so
485        that the diff links compare the selected version against the previous
486        one, not the original one every time.
4880.20    10 July 2003
489        Fixed all the email addresses to
4910.19    10 July 2003

494        Fixed small bug with edit conflict form - map link field was missing.
496        Moved "content" div in a couple of templates to fix incorrect nesting.
498        @INDEX_LINK macros now have optional title text like so:
499          @INDEX_LINK [[Category Pubs|Pubs]]
501        Added preferences option for including or excluding text formatting
502        rules link in navbar.  Enable this by setting text_formatting_node
503        in your config file.
505        Added config option for including the navbar on the home page.
507        Implemented minor edits.
509        Fixed cookie to persist beyond session.
5110.18    16 June 2003
512        Added a Makefile.PL as well as a Build.PL, for users.
5140.17    15 June 2003
515        Fixed OpenGuides::Utils to take note of dbhost.
517        Added example stylesheet provided by the OxfordGuide team.
5190.16    26 May 2003
520        Ivor fixed OpenGuides::Diff to diff by word instead of by character.
522        Fixed edit conflict up so it works nicely when you click the
523        Save button as well as the Preview one.
525        Added preferences option of displaying lat/long as deg-min-sec
526        instead of decimal (requested by James).
5280.15    18 May 2003
529        Added Algorithm::Diff version dependency to prereqs, fixed bug
530        with preferences.cgi and blank script_name, fixed REDIRECT bug.
5320.14    17 May 2003
533        Added "Wanted Pages" link to navbar, thanks to Simon Cozens for
534        the idea.
536        Fixed many bugs noticed by Dominic Hargreaves and other Oxonians.
537        Many thanks to Dominic for making an Oxford OpenGuides install for
538        us to find bugs in.
5400.13    17 May 2003
541        Added some more stylesheet hooks.
543        Tweaked OpenGuides::Diff to make it testable, added a start at tests.
545        Lat and long now stored to only 6dp instead of millions.
547        Added edit field for map link.
5490.12    14 May 2003
550        Added OpenGuides::CGI to manage cookies and things, used this to
551        do more code tidying.  Added edit box position option to preferences.
5530.11    14 May 2003
554        Added newpage.cgi for an easy way to create new pages.
556        Took loads of repeated code (for extracting and packaging metadata
557        variables) out of wiki.cgi into OpenGuides::Template.
5590.10    11 May 2003
560        Added OpenGuides::Diff to provide nice diff output between
561        node versions.
563        Added OpenGuides::Template to handle Template Toolkit stuff in a
564        more testable and reusable way than just bunging it in wiki.cgi.
5660.09    10 May 2003
567        Added OpenGuides::UK::PubCrawl and pubcrawl.cgi as a start at a
568        pub crawl generator.
570        Added OpenGuides::Utils to make it easier to write little standalone
571        scripts like supersearch.cgi, pubcrawl. cgi, etc.  Made wiki.cgi and
572        supersearch.cgi use it, and lost loads of duplicated code in the
573        process, hurrah.
5750.08    3 May 2003
576        Added fuzzy matching capability -
577          action=index;index_type=fuzzy_title_match;index_value=hollborne
578        Someone needs to write a nice search box interface for this.
580        Fixed edit_conflict template and preview method to cope with stale
581        checksum - passes through all the metadata properly now and offers
582        a side by side comparison of what you input and what is stored.
584        RDF output for node is now encoding-agnostic (used to have UTF-8
585        hardcoded).  Also is now called as wiki.cgi?id=Node_Name;format=rdf
5870.07    3 May 2003
588        Require CGI::Wiki 0.32 to avoid bug (again a Bob find!) where
589        committing a node with metadata but no content would die.
591        Auto-created category/locale stub pages now added to Category Category
592        or Category Locales as appropriate.
594        Added a couple of extra allowed HTML tags to cater for existing
595        grubstreet data.
597        Fixed bug in OpenGuides::RDF - it used to die if called on a
598        nonexistent node, now it returns stuff with a wiki:version of 0.
6000.06    2 May 2003
601        Fixed supersearch.cgi so it works with MySQL as well as Postgres
602        (thanks again to Bob for finding the bug).
6040.05    2 May 2003
605        Redid the script and template installation so the script does
606        actually get called what you said it should be (code copied
607        somewhat from Siesta::Build).
609        Fixed the support for non-local databases/IDENT authentication.
610        I think.
612        Fixed the hardcoded 'wiki.cgi' in some of the templates (thanks Bob).
6140.04    29 April 2003
615        First public release.
