* Better support for serving the same site on multiple urls. (Such as
a http and a https url, or a ipv4 and an ipv6 url.)
(Thanks, smcv)
* API: urlto without a defined second parameter now generates an url
that starts with "/" (when possible; eg when the site's url and cgiurl

* Now when users log in via https, ikiwiki sends a secure cookie, that can
only be used over https. If the user switches to using http, they will
need to re-login. (smcv)

* git: Use author date, not committer date. Closes: #602012

* Removed misc.tmpl. Now to theme ikiwiki, you only need to customise
a single template, page.tmpl.
* If you have a locally customised page.tmpl, it needs to be updated
to set <base> when BASEURL or FORCEBASEURL is set.
* comments: Comments pending moderation are now stored in the srcdir
alongside accepted comments, but with a `._comment_pending` extension.
This allows easier byhand moderation, as the "_pending" need
only be stripped off and the comment be committed to version control.
* The `comment_pending()` pagespec can be used to match such unmoderated
comments, which makes it easy to add a feed of them, or a counter
indicating how many there are.
* Belatedly added a `comment()` pagespec.
* Gave comment and page editing forms some CSS and accessability love.
* Renamed postscan hook to indexhtml, to reflect its changed position,

* inline: Call indexhtml when inlining internal pages, so their
text can be indexed for searching.
* Delete hooks are passed deleted internal pages.
* openid: Incorporated a fancy openid-selector signin form.

leave passwordauth enabled and let people who don't have an openid use it.
The openid selector form avoids the UI annoyance of having both openid
and passwordauth on one form.
* calendar: Allow negative month to be specified. -1 is last month, etc.

[ Joey Hess ]
* tag: Automatic creation of tag pages can now be enabled using
the tag_autocreate setting. (David Riebenbauer)
* Customised templates can now be included in the source of wikis
(and also in underlays), and dependencies on them are tracked.
* TMPL_INCLUDE is no longer supported in any template.
* underlay: Removed the add_templates option.
* Add template_depends function to plugin API.
* bzr: Fix bzr log parsing to work with bzr 2.0. (liw)
* comments: Fix missing entity encoding in title.
* txt: Add a special case for robots.txt.
[ Simon McVittie ]
* Add support for link types, and make the the tagged() pagespec only
match tags, not regular links (a bugfix).
* Rebuild wikis on upgrade to this version to get tag link types recorded
* Revamp sorting system; allow new sort methods to be added by plugins,
and add a "sortspec" syntax that can combine, reverse, etc sort methods.
* meta: Add `meta(author)`, `meta(title)` etc sortspecs to allow sorting
by metadata.
* meta: Add optional sortas parameter to author and title meta directives.
This can be used to get names sorted by last name without displaying
them last name first.
* sortnaturally: New plugin; the title_natural sort method has moved here.
* meta: store fields consistently unescaped, and escape on use.
(A wiki rebuild is also needed due to this change.)
[ Joey Hess ]
* Update dependency for git-core to git transition.
* po: Check that translated underlay directories exist before using them
for master language.
* po: Configuring the same language as master and slave confuses processing;
so filter out such a misconfiguration.
* calendar: Add archive_pagespec, which is used by ikiwiki-calendar to
specify which pages to include on the calendar archive pages.
(The pagespec can still also be specified on the ikiwiki-calendar command
* pagestats: Class parameter can be used to override default class for
custom styling.
* pagestats: Use style=list to get a list of tags, scaled by use like
in a tag cloud. This is useful to put in a sidebar.
* Rework example blog front page.
* CSS and templates for sidebar changed to use a class, not an id.
* sidebar: Now a sidebar directive can be used to override the sidebar
shown on a page.
* Enable calendar and sidebar in auto-blog.setup.
* sidebar: Add global_sidebars setting.
* conditional: Fix bug that forced "all" mode off by default.
* calendarmonth.tmpl: The month calendar is now put in a sidebar.
* calendar: Improved display of arrows.
* Rename --getctime to --gettime. (The old name still works for
backwards compatibility.)
* --gettime now also looks up last modification time.
* Automatically run --gettime the first time ikiwiki is run on
a given srcdir. (Use --no-gettime to disable.)
* Add rcs_getmtime to plugin API; currently only implemented
for git and svn.
* Optimise --gettime for git, so it's appropriately screamingly
fast. (This could be done for most other backends too.)
* However, --gettime for git no longer follows renames. That would
be slow, and whether a renamed wiki page is the same page is really
an iffy thing.
* Use above to fix up timestamps on docwiki, as well as ensure that
timestamps on basewiki files shipped in the deb are sane.
* autoindex: Switch to using %wikistate instead of abusing
* bzr: Support rcs_getmtime, and fix rcs_getctime implementation
(Jelmer Vernooij)
* Quite a lot of new optimisations, and one major fix to a recent
performance regression.
* Moved javascript files under the ikiwiki/ directory, to avoid cluttering
the top of the web root. This is another things that requires a wiki
rebuild on upgrade to this version.
* Fix removal of rendered files in rebuild mode.
* Add page() PageSpec, which is like glob() but matches only pages,
not other files.

that could lead to bad dependency handling in certian situations.
* Add preprocessed 'use lib' line to ikiwiki-transition and ikiwiki-calendar
if necessary for unusual install.
* auto-blog.setup: Set tagbase by default, since most bloggers will want it.
* Allow wrappers to be built using tcc. (Workaround #452876)

to get the user's email address and username. (Neither is yet
used, but they are available in the session object now.)

* pagecount, calendar, postsparkline, progress: Use a presence dependency,

edits will no longer trigger an unnecessary update.
* map: Use a presence dependency unless show= is specified.
This makes maps efficient enough that they can be used on sidebars!
* inline: Use a presence dependency in quick mode.
* brokenlinks: Use a link dependency.
This makes it much more efficient, only updating when really necessary.
* orphans, pagestats: Use a combination of presence and link dependencies.
This makes them more efficient. It also fixes a longstanding bug,
where if only a small set of pages were considered by orphans/pagestats,
changes to links on other pages failed to cause an update.
* linkmap: Use a combination of presence and link dependencies.
This makes the map be regenerated much less frequently in many cases,
so larger maps are more practical to use now.
* Plugins providing PageSpec `match_*` functions should pass additional
influence information when creating result objects. This allows correctly
handling many more complicated dependencies.
* API change: `pagespec_match_list` has completly changed its interface.
The old interface will be removed soon, and a warning will be printed

'page' cgi parameter. Using the title was ambiguous and made it
impossible to tell between some pages, like "foo/bar" and "foo__47__bar",

* Revert preservation of input file modification times in output files,
since this leads to too many problems with web caching, especially with
inlined pages. Properly solving this would involve tracking every page
that contributes to a page's content and using the youngest of them all,
as well as special cases for things like the version plugin, and it's just
too complex to do.
* aggregate: Forking a child broke the one state that mattered: Forcing
the aggregating page to be rebuilt. Fix this.

created if it doesn't exist.
* recentchanges: Exipre all *._change pages, even if the directory

- Support for viewing differences via patches using viewmtn.
* inline: When previewing, still call will_render on rss/atom files,
just avoid actually writing the files. This is necessary because ikiwiki
saves state after a preview (in case it actually *did* write files),
and if will_render isn't called its security checks will get upset
when the page is saved. Thanks to Edward Betts for his help tracking this
tricky bug down.

feeds if available. (rss doesn't allow such info on a per-post basis)
* Also include overall copyright/license and author info in atom feeds if

* Call preprocessor hooks in void context during the scan pass. This allows

* img: Detect scan mode and avoid generating and writing the image file
during it, for a 2x speedup.
* meta: Run in scan mode again (more intelligently) and re-add support for

* Fix support for the case where metadata appears after an inline directive
that needs to use it. This was broken in version 2.16.
* template: Remove bogus htmlize pass added in 2.16.
* template: Htmlize template variables, but also provide a raw version
via `<TMPL_VAR raw_variable>`.
* When htmlizing text, if the input is a single line with no newline,
and the htmlizer (such as markdown and textile) generates a html
paragraph, remove it. This allows removing several hacks from other

* Split error messages for failures to drop real uid and gid.
* Retry dropping uid and gid, possibly this will help with the "Resource
temporarily unavailable" failures I've experienced under xen.
* Stop testing Encode::is_utf8 in decode_form_utf8: That doesn't work.
* decode_form_utf8 only fixed the utf-8 encoding for fields that were
registered at the time it was called, which was before the
formbuilder_setup hook. Fields added by the hook didn't get decoded.
But it can't be put after the hook either, since plugins using the hook
need to be able to use form values. To fix this dilemma, it's been changed
to a decode_cgi_utf8, which is called on the cgi query object, before the
form is set up, and decodes *all* cgi parameters.
* aggregate: Only save state if it was already loaded. This didn't used to
matter, but after recent changes, state is not always loaded, and saving
would kill it.

* Major basewiki reorganisation. Most pages moved into ikiwiki/ subdirectory
to avoid polluting the main namespace, and some were further renamed.
* meta: Add redir support, based on a patch by Thomas Schwinge.
* Redirs added for moved basewiki pages. These will be removed in a future
* Remove .otl file from sandbox to avoid build ugliness. Closes: #454181
* Finally implemented a simple per-page data storage mechanism for plugins,
via the %pagestate hash.
* Use pagestate in meta to detect potential redir loops.
* Added a version plugin that saves state about what's using it, to force
pages to rebuild when ikiwiki's version changes.
* The calendar plugin stores state about when it needs to be updated,
and forces rebuilds of the pages that contain calendars. So
running ikiwiki --refresh at midnight is now enough, no need for a full
wiki rebuild each midnight.
* calendar: Work around block html parsing bug in markdown 1.0.1 by
enclosing the calendar in an extra div.
* Fix file pruning code to work if ikiwiki is run with "." as the srcdir.
* Add an edittemplate plugin, allowing registering template pages, that
provide default content for new pages created using the web frontend.
* Change formbuilder hook to not be responsible for displaying a form,
so that more than one plugin can use this hook.
I believe this is a safe change, since only passwordauth uses this hook.
(If some other plugin already used it, it would have broken passwordauth!)
* Ensure that web edited pages always end in a newline.
* Avoid unnecessary stat calls to get mtime when rendering pages, use
cached value.
* Preserve input file modification times in output files.
* Allow dashes in preprocessor directive commands, and shortcuts.
* Htmlize parameters passed to the template preprocessor directive before
inserting them into the html template. This ensures that markdown
acts on them, even if the value is expanded inside a block-level html
element in the html template. Closes: #454058
* Use a div in the note template rather than a span.
* shortcut: Expand %S to the raw input text, not url-encoded.
* Don't increment feed numbers when an inline has no feeds. (Nis Martensen)
* Allow editing a page and deleting all content, while still disallowing
creating a new page that's entirely empty.
* meta: Drop support for "meta link", since supporting this for internal
links required meta to be run during scan, which complicated its data
storage, since it had to clear data stored during the scan pass to avoid
duplicating it during the normal preprocessing pass.
* If you used "meta link", you should switch to either "meta openid" (for
openid delegations), or tags (for internal, invisible links). I assume
that nobody really used "meta link" for external, non-openid links, since
the htmlscrubber ate those. (Tell me differently and I'll consider bringing
back that support.)
* meta: Improved data storage.
* meta: Drop the hackish filter hook that was used to clear
stored data before preprocessing, this hack was ugly, and broken (cf:
liw's disappearing openids).
* aggregate: Convert filter hook to a needsbuild hook.
* map: Don't inline images.
* brokenlinks: Don't list the same link multiple times. (%links might
contain multiple copies of the same link)
* git: Correct display of multiline commit messages in recentchanges.
* Re-organise dependencies and recommends now that recommends are installed
by default.
* Don't refuse to render files with ".." in their name. (Anchor the regexp.)

sets the taint flag on untainted variables, by disabling taint checking
in the deb. This sucks.

* Fix some issues with toggles in preview mode.
* Fix an aggregate plugin expiry bug. Over time, it's possible for the same
page name to be expired and reused for several distinct guids. When this

name as a currently existing page, and thus expired too many pages.

stay the same for the duration of the function.
* Avoid using commands like git-diff and instead use "git diff".

* Fix --get-ctime with git, needed to remove srcdir from filename.
* In the cgi edit path, reload the index file before rendering. A bug
showed up where a web edit that added a page caused a near-concurrent
web edit to fail in will_render. While it would be hard to reproduce this,
my analysis is that the failing cgi started first, loaded the index file
(prior to locking) then the other cgi created the new page and rendered
it, and then the failing cgi choked on the new file when _it_ tried to
render it. Ensuring that the index file is loaded after taking the lock
will avoid this bug.
* Fix strange stderr-hiding code in the git module, allow error messages
to be passed on to stderr. Also fixes a potential bug, since git error
meesages were treated as if they came from git stdout.
* Add a "createlink" class attribute to the span for wikilinks pointing
to not-yet-existing pages. I don't have a useful style defined for that
* Rewritten rst plugin by madduck is a python program that communicates with
ikiwiki via XML RPC. This should be much faster than the old plugin that
had to fork python for every rst page render. Note that if you use

* img: Allow link=somepage to cause the image to link to a given page.
Slight overriding of link, as link=no is still used to disable the linking
entirely. Unless you have a page named "no"..
* Save index after previewing page edit, since even previewing can create
files in some situations, and this is appropriate in some cases, such as
the teximg plugin's error log file.
Such files will be automatically cleaned up at an appopriate later time.
* Don't allow whitespace in link text in a wikilink. This was still
allowed by the regexp in one case though not documented to work, and
was ambiguous with preprocessor directives.
* camelcase: Tighten regexp to avoid false positives. WikiWords are only
linkified now if they are preceeded by whitespace.

* Correct bug in the img plugin that caused dependencies on images to not

* Change where the img plugin puts scaled images. It's better to make the
scaled images subpages of the page that embeds them, rather than putting
them alongside the original image, since if two pages scale the same image
the same way, this prevents complications in dealing with two pages

* Include the note template in the basewiki.
* Add a popup template in the basewiki. CSS based on some by Martin Krafft.
* Make the note, popup, and plugin templates detect missing variables and be
self-documenting, listing the available variables.
* Hide excess backlinks and expand using CSS trick; control quantiy via
the numbacklinks setting.
* Finally apply the index.html patch, with thanks to everyone who worked
on and supported creating it (especially Tuomov). This adds a "usedirs"
option that makes ikiwiki use foo/index.html instead of foo.html as
output page names. It is not yet enabled by default.

* Also fixes img preview display, the links were wrong in preview before.
* Add a sparkline plugin.

* Add a table plugin, derived from the one written by Victor Moral.
* The underscore escaping support exposed a bug in edit links: Such links
were titlepage escaped in the urls, and then doubly escaped by the CGI

* Since the CGI had to drop the wiki lock to avoid deadlocking the
commit hook, it was possible for one CGI to race another one and "win"
the commit of both their files. This race has been fixed by adding a new
commitlock, which when locked by the CGI, disables the commit hook

password fields, which allows more web browsers to regognise it as a login
field, and is less confusing.
* Implemented expiry options for aggregate plugin.
* Use precalculated backlinks info when determining if files need an update
due to a page they link to being added/removed. Mostly significant if
there are lots of pages.
* Remove duplicate link info when saving index. In some cases it could
pile up rather badly. (Probably not the best way to deal with this
* Patch from James Westby to support podcasting, photoblogging, vidcasting,
or what have you, by creating enclosures for non-page items that are
included in feeds.

ikiwiki (1.31) unstable; urgency=low
* Patch from Paweł Tęcza to cp -a the templates in the Makefile.
* Change the rss feed title from the wikiname to the page title, with
an exception for the wiki's toplevel index page, which will still use the
wikiname as the feed title.
Overriding the page title with meta title already overrode the rss feed
* Add an img plugin, based on Christian Mock's img plugin, but stripped
down to the bare essentials. Useful for handling large images on websites.
* Sanitize possibly problimatic characters out of the polygen grammar names,
just in case. Should not be exploitable anyway, since it only tries to run
polygen after finding the specified grammar file.
* Add missing dependency on the URI perl module.
* Add basic spam fighting tool for admins: An admin's prefs page now allows
editing a list of banned users.

* Add no_override parameter to hook().
* Add a shortcut plugin, inspired by Victor Moral's contributed shortcuts
plugin, but featuring a more ikiwiki-ish syntax and with shortcuts that
can be configured using a page in wiki.
* Fix support for --pingurl at the command line.
* Fix a subtle bug in will_render that broke some builds, by only clearing
items from renderedfiles the first time per build.
* Wrap entire technortati ping operation in an eval to catch all possible
failure modes, after I observed a simple ->value crashing ikiwiki when
a ping failed.

ikiwiki (1.29) unstable; urgency=low
* Patch from Paul Tötterman to use CP in the Makefile.
* Patch from Alec Berryman adding a http_auth config item that allows
using HTTP Authentication instead of ikiwiki's built in authentication.
Useful for eg, large sites with their own previously existing user auth
setup. Closes: #384534
* Change %renderedfiles to store an array of files rendered from a given
source file, to allow tracking of extra rendered files like rss feeds.
* Note that plugins that accessed this variable will need to be updated!
The plugin interface has been increased to version 1.01 for this change.
As few plugins use %renderedfiles I haven't done anything else to ensure
compatibility of old plugins.
* Add will_render function to the plugin interface, used to register that a
page renders a destination file, and do some security checks. Previously
but no longer rendered files will be cleaned up.
* Use will_render in the inline and linkmap plugins.
* You will need to rebuild your wiki on upgrade to this version.
* Atom feed support based on a patch by Clint Adams.
* Add feeds=no option to inline preprocessor directive to turn off all types
of feeds.
* $IkiWiki::version now holds the program version, and is accessible to
* Make the aggregate plugin emphasize error messages.
* Patch from Recai to limit recentchanges to displaying max 10 files for a
given changeset (to avoid large number of file changes excessively
bloating the page).

* inline: Add ability to sort by page name, based on a patch from
Benjamin A'Lee.
* Fix a forkbomb in various calls to IPC::Open2, which has a highly
braindead interface. Closes: #389383
* Don't rm -rf ikiwiki on distclean, since a) there's no such file
and b) those poor Mac OSX users and their case insensative files!
* Don't fail syntax check if Text::Typography isn't installed.

ikiwiki (1.27) unstable; urgency=low
* Work on firming up the plugin interface:
- Plugins should not need to load IkiWiki::Render to get commonly
used functions, so moved some functions from there to IkiWiki.
- Picked out the set of functions and variables that most plugins
use, documented them, and made IkiWiki export them by default,
like a proper perl module should.
- Use the other functions at your own risk.
- This is not quite complete, I still have to decide whether to
export some other things.
* Changed all plugins included in ikiwiki to not use "IkiWiki::" when
referring to stuff now exported by the IkiWiki module.
* Add a module version number to IkiWiki, so you can "use IkiWiki '1.00'"
to declare which version of the interface your plugin needs.
* Anyone with a third-party ikiwiki plugin is strongly encouraged
to make like changes to it and avoid use of non-exported symbols from
* Link debian/changelog and debian/news to NEWS and CHANGELOG.
* Support hyperestradier version 1.4.2, which adds a new required phraseform
* If an inlined page has a permalink, link the page title to that.
* Patch from Recai to use utf8 when reading the setup file, so that
utf8 wikinames from there will be used properly.
* Patch from Recai to kill utf-8 on the wiki name when generating the
session cookie.
* Change ddate plugin to use the DateTime::Calendar::Discordian perl module.
* Fix a baseurl problem in hyperestradier search results.
* Add a stub local.css to avoid problems with 404's.
* Patch from Recai to fix a wide character warning from the search plugin
during setup if the wikiname contains utf8.
* Yet another fix for those poor case-insensative OS X users.
* pagetemplate hooks are now also called when generating cgi pages.
* Add a favicon plugin, which simply adds a link tag for an icon to each
page (and cgis).
* Patch from James Westby to deal with the case where you're editing a
new page, hit cancel, and need to be redirected to somewhere sane.
* Various documentation improvements by various wiki users.
* Support Text::Markdown from CPAN, which has a different interface from
the original markdown or the one in Debian.
* Version the libcgi-session-perl dependency, some features that need
the new version are used in some cases (sslcookie).
* Numerous tla fixes from Clint.
* Updated ikiwiki.svgz from Recai, includes an icon and is used to generate
a multi-resolution favicon.ico.
* README.Debian: typo Closes: #388110
* chomp trailing newline at the end of templates read in by the template
plugin, to allow use of the template preprocessor directive in
whitespace-sensative situations. Closes: #387073
* Patch from James Westby to make the location of the estseek.cgi script
* Add typography (SmartyPants) plugin by Recai.
* Add --render mode, which can be used to preview an edit at the command
line by test rendering a single page.
* Add a googlecalendar plugin. A bit special-purpose, but it shows
one way to to deal with user-supplied content that could cause XSS
issues w/o the htmlscrubber, and won't survive the scrubber.

* Add a missing -n to tla undo call.
* otl2hmtl can't be safely used with IPC::Open2 since it sometimes
writes before consuming its whole stdin. Avoid this deadlock.
* Fix alt tags for outline checkboxes.
-- Joey Hess <> Fri, 8 Sep 2006 16:24:16 -0400
ikiwiki (1.25) unstable; urgency=low
* Add proper waitpid calls for open2ed processes throughout to avoid
zombies; this hit htmltidy especially badly.
* Drop real uid/gid in the suid wrapper, thus allowing commits to remote
subversion repos and fixing some other issues.
* Add support for tla, contributed by Clint Adams. Closes: #385936
* Add support for mercurial, contributed by Emanuele Aina.
* Include <link rel> tag for RSS feeds, used by some aggregators and
firefox to find the feed.
* Add a linkmap plugin (requires graphviz).

* Simplify the data structure returned by rcs_recentchanges to avoid
each rcs plugin needing to form complex strings on its own.

ikiwiki (1.22) unstable; urgency=low
* Change how the stylesheet url is determined in the templates: Remove
STYLEURL and add BASEURL to all templates (some already had it). This
new more general variable can be used to link to other things (eg, images)
from the template, as well as stylesheets.
* Fix a bug introduced last version to do with nested inlines.
* Allow preprocessor directives to span multiple lines, both to make
long ones with lots of values easier to write, and to allow for ones with
multi-line quoted values.
* Allow preprocessor directives to contain python-like triple-quoted
text blocks, for easy nesting of quotes inside.
* Add a template plugin.
* Make pagespec merge code smarter about merging duplicate pagespecs.
* Patch from Jordà Polo to make Setup::Standard support hashes in config
* Change order of linkify and preprocess; first preprocess and then linkify.
This allows passing a wikilink inside a parameter to a preprocessor
directive without it being expanded to html, and leaking out of the
parameter, which had required some non-obvious use of triple-quoting
to avoid. Note that any preprocessor plugins that output something
that looks like a wikilink will now have it treated as such; AFAIK
this doesn't change any behavior though except for the template plugin.
* Enable preprocessor directives when previewing an edit.
* Make all pages pull in a local.css style sheet, if present. This won't
be included in ikiwiki, but can be created to make local styling changes
w/o needing to merge in every new change to the distributed style.css.
* Use DESTDIR and not PREFIX to specify installation prefix for packaging.
* Support running "perl Makefile.PL PREFIX=foo" to build ikiwiki to run
from a different directory.
* Generalised preprocesser loop protection code.
* Patch from James Westby to allow a description to be set for rss feeds.
* Patch from James Westby to add a template for the search form.
* Added a ddate plugin.
* Patch from James Westby to add a --sslcookie switch, which forces
cookies to only be sent over ssl connections to avoid interception.
* Fix preferences page on anonok wikis; still need to sign in to get
to the preferences page.
* Add toc (table of contents) plugin.
* Change htmlize, format, and sanitize hooks to use named parameters.
* Patch from James Westby to add an actions option to inline; this
adds Edit and Discussion links at the end of blog entries.
* Due to some css changes, you'll want to rebuild your wiki on upgrade
to this version. Will be handled automatically by the deb.
* Add processed date to aggregate preprocessor directive status output.

ikiwiki (1.21) unstable; urgency=low
* Add a tail fin^W^Wsidebar plugin by Tuomo Valkonen.
* If a page links to itself, mark up the link text in a span with
class="selflink" so that it can be styled. I don't have a useful style
defined for that though.
* Call filter hooks on inlined page content.
* Support inlining pages raw, rather than creating a blog.
* Clean up yes/no parameter parsing in inline plugin.
* Implemented better cycle detection in the inline plugin; nested inlines
will now work.
* Add a map plugin contributed by Alessandro Dotti Contra.
* Add otl format plugin, which handles files as created by vimoutliner.
* Fix ikiwiki-mass-rebuild to work in the way the postinst uses it.
* Add first draft at a Restructured Text (rst) plugin, by Sergio
Talens-Oliag. Note that this has many known issues -- see the caveats on
the plugin's page.
* Credit everyone who wrote a plugin on the plugins' wiki pages.
* Fix utf-8 in blog post form.

* Relicense the templates and basewiki under the 2-clause BSD license.
Since these can easily become part of other people's websites, they
should be under as permissive a license as possible.
* Add --syslog config option, to log to the syslog.
* Catch failing IPC::Open2 in tidy plugin and retry in case this is a
transient failure to fork (which I've seen happen in the wild).
* Fix a bug in the aggregator introduced last version that caused all
aggregator state to be lost during a non-aggregating build.
-- Joey Hess <> Thu, 17 Aug 2006 19:05:56 -0400
ikiwiki (1.19) unstable; urgency=low
* Fix several related bugs in page type determination during online editing.
* Add some locking to prevent 2 aggregators from running at once.
* Fix an infinite loop in the aggregator when finding a unique filename.

ikiwiki (1.18) unstable; urgency=low
* The last release accidentially installed ikiwiki as, now fixed.
* Add --version.
* Man page format fixups.
* If the meta plugin overides the page title, set a title_overridden
variable in the template to true. This allows doing things with the
templates conditional on the title being overriden.
* Add a %pagecase which maps lower-case page names to the actual case
used in the filename. Use this in bestlinks calculation instead of
forcing the link to lowercase.
* Also use %pagecase in various other places that want to check if a page
with a given name exists.
* This means that links to pages with mixed case names will now work,
even if the link is in some other case mixture, and mixed case pages
should be fully supported throughout ikiwiki.
* Recommend rebuilding wikis on upgrade to this version.

* Disable tidy generator tag.
* Move tidy back to sanitize hook, found out how to only show body.
* Turn off tidy indentation too.
* Turn on HTML::Template loop_context_vars; not actually used in stock
templates but can be useful for things like making comma-delimited lists
of tags or what have you.
* Remove <br> from end of aggregate preprocessor directive output.
* Ship ikiwiki executable as in source to avoid issues on
case-sensative filesystems like OSX.
* Improve markdown loading. First, try to load it as a proper perl module,
in case it was installed as one. Then fall back to trying
* Document in install page how to install markdown, since it has no
installation procedure in the upstream tarball.
* Set die_on_bad_params => 0 for all templates, to allow users to modify
them without annoyances.
* Suck in the page content when generating an inline archive page, to work
around the meta plugin's lack of caching of title metadata across runs.

* Try to handle relative links in aggregated feeds. However,
the current support is a crude hack due to limitations of XML::Feed:
xml:base is not supported, neither is Content-Location. And of course,
relative links in RSS feeds are ill-undefined..
* Make aggregator save permalinks and author name to pages as metadata.
* Add permalink and author support to meta plugin, affecting RSS feeds
and blog pages.
* Various CSS and formatting changes.
* Encode link and guid urls in rss feeds to avoid illegal utf8 slipping in.
* Add xhtml files to the default prune regexp.
* Also generate rel=bookmark links for permalinks.
* Fix the htmltidy plugin, which wasn't working due my breaking it when
I added it..
* Don't run tidy with -xml as that fails if the input is not well-formed.
Run it with -asxhtml instead, so it will output well-formed xhtml no
matter what the input.
* Disable tidy warnings too.
* Add a new format hook, and make tidy use it, since tidy can really only
operate on and output complete html documents, not the body chunks
that sanitise gets.
* Fix dates in rss feeds if running localised, so they're still rfc 822.
