36<p>Version 0.69 of OpenGuides was released on the weekend, with
37changes focusing on the administrative "missing metadata" tool.  New
38metadata types have been added to the missing metadata search form,
39allowing people to search for pages with, for example, no associated
40image.  In addition, these search results can now be viewed on a map
41as an extra option to the previous "list" view.</p>
42
43<p>Under-the-hood changes made as part of this enhancement will also
44make it easier in the future for us to allow visualisation of even
45more types of search result on a map.</p>

51<p>Version 0.67 of OpenGuides was released today, with several major
52changes and bugfixes.</p>
53
54<p>We now use <a href="http://leaflet.cloudmade.com/">Leaflet</a> as
55our JavaScript mapping library, with OpenStreetMap and MapQuest tiles
56as default.  JSON output has been added or improved on several types
57of pages, including index pages and user preferences.  A basic
58stylesheet is now included in the distribution, and a long-standing
59recent changes bug has been fixed.  Finally, it's now possible to
60index on category and locale at the same time (so you can view e.g. a
61list or map of all pubs in Holborn).</p>

67<p>Version 0.66 of OpenGuides was released yesterday by our new CPAN release
68manager, Bob Walker.  This includes various usability fixes, new CSS hooks,
69and a switch to Geo::Coordinates::* modules rather than the old
70Geography::NationalGrid::* ones (which no longer exist on CPAN).</p>
71
72<p>We now require version 2.24 of Template (for its text virtual methods,
73needed to create the abovementioned CSS hooks).</p>
