tagged release 1.8.9
     1 MoinMoin Version History
     2 ========================
     4 Please note: Starting from the MoinMoin version you used previously, you
     5 should read all more recent entries (or at least everything marked with HINT).
     7 This release has known bugs (see MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs), but we think it is
     8 already better than the previous stable release. Our release policy is not
     9 trying to make a "perfect release" (as that release might NEVER get released),
    10 but to make progress and don't delay releases too much.
    12 Known main issues:
    14   * The GUI WYSIWYG editor has still some issues and limitations.
    15     If you can't live with those, you can simply switch it off by using:
    16     editor_force = True
    17     editor_default = 'text'  # internal default, just for completeness
    20 Version 1.8.9:
    21   Fixes:
    22     * Fixed XSS issue in rst parser (CVE-2011-1058).
    23     * PackagePages: avoid strange exception in for pre-1980
    24       timestamps.
    25     * revert action: Catch and display all SaveErrors when revert failed
    26     * ldap_login: assign server early, it is used in exception handler
    28   Other changes:
    29     * None - we did not update system/help pages since the previous release,
    30       so you do not need to update your underlay directory
    33 Please note: this is the final 1.8.x version, there will be no more 1.8.x
    34 security / bug fixes coming from moin developers from now on. You are advised
    35 to upgrade to the latest moin 1.9.x release as soon as possible.
    36 If you need help with that, please see there:
    39 Version 1.8.8:
    40   Fixes:
    41     * Fixed XSS issues (see MoinMoinBugs/1.9.2UnescapedInputForThemeAddMsg).
    42     * Fixed XSS in Despam action (CVE-2010-0828).
    43     * wikiutil.clean_input: avoid crash if it gets str type
    44     * Add RenderAsDocbook to actions_excluded if we have no python-xml
    45     * AttachFile._build_filelist: verifies readonly flag for unzip file link
    46     * attachUrl: fix wrongly generated tickets (e.g. for AttachList macro)
    47     * MoinMoin.util.filesys.dc* (dircache can't work reliably):
    48       * disable usage of dircache, deprecate dc* functions
    49       * remove all calls to filesys.dc* (dclistdir, dcdisable)
    50     * Fixed crash, see MoinMoinPatch/IncludeMacroWithDocBookFormatter
    51     * Avoid hardly recoverable crashes if #format specification is invalid
    52     * Fixed info action: AttachFile sub-actions that needed a ticket did not
    53       work (e.g. do=del).
    55   New features:
    56     * auth.ldap_login: add report_invalid_credentials param to control wrong
    57       credentials error message (typically used when using multiple ldap
    58       authenticators)
    61 Version 1.8.7:
    62   Fixes:
    63   * Fixed major security issues in miscellaneous parts of moin.
    64     HINT: if you have removed superuser configuration to workaround the issue
    65     (following our security advisory), you may re-add it after installing this
    66     moin release. If you don't need superuser capabilities often, it might be
    67     wise to not have superusers configured all the time, though.
    68   * Improved package security: cfg.packagepages_actions_excluded excludes
    69     unsafe or otherwise questionable package actions by default now.
    70   * wiki parser: fixed transclusion of (e.g. video) attachments from other
    71     pages.
    72   * Fixed edit locking for non-logged in editors and cfg.log_remote_addr=False.
    73   * xmlrpc:
    74     * Process attachname in get/putAttachment similarly.
    75     * revertPage: convert pagename to internal representation.
    76   * Fixed config.umask usage for page packages.
    77   * Fixed usage of i18n.wikiLanguages() on class level (moved to method),
    78     failed when tools import the module (e.g. pydoc -k foo).
    79   * SubProcess: fixed win32-specific parts, fixed imports (fixes calling of
    80     external xapian index filters)
    83 Version 1.8.6:
    84   Bug fixes:
    85   * Xapian indexing / indexing filters:
    86     * fix deadlocks with well- and misbehaving external filters
    87     * work around indexing run crashing when encountering encoding problems
    88       with non-ascii filenames
    89     * OpenOffice/OpenDocument filters: catch UnicodeDecodeErrors (happens
    90       with password protected files)
    91   * i18n: check if languages is not initialized yet, don't crash
    92   * http_redirect: use 301 redirect for some cases
    93   * do not use httponly session cookies, makes trouble with twikidraw and ACLs
    94   * GetText2 macro: fix for named placeholder
    95   * Fix SHA -> SSHA password hash upgrade for old user profiles.
    96   * abort RenamePage if renaming of main page fails (do not try to rename
    97     subpages)
    99   New features:
   100   * search: improve search result ordering
   101   * add MS Powerpoint indexing filter (needs catppt from catdoc package)
   102   * migration scripts: make finding damaged edit-log entries easier
   103   * SubscribeUser action: support username regexes and unsubscribing.
   104     Usage (enter this into the input form field you get after invoking
   105     SubscribeUser action from the "More Actions" menu:
   106     [+|-][re:]username[,username,...] 
   108     +username: subscribes user <username> (+ is optional/default)
   109     -username: unsubscribes user <username>
   110     +re:username_re: subscribes users who match <username_re> regex.
   111     -re:username_re: unsubscribes users who match <username_re> regex.
   114 Version 1.8.5:

   117     * Upgrade FCKeditor from 2.6.4 to
   118     * PDF embedding: fix html, works better with PDF browser plugins now.

   134     * Added httponly cookie support and use it for session cookie.
   136   Other changes:
   137     * HTTP auth: added debug logging.

   144     * Add .csv, .flv, .swf to MIMETYPES_MORE.
   147 Version 1.8.4:
   148   Bug fixes:
   149     * ACL security: fix bug in hierarchical ACL processing, more restrictive
   150       sub page ACLs did not work if the current user name did not give a match
   151       within the sub page ACL (instead, the less restrictive parent page ACL
   152       was used).
   153       Non-hierarchical ACL processing (the default) is NOT affected.
   154     * Creole parser: fix spaces in multiline elements.
   155     * Use msie.css only for Internet Explorer older than version 8, fixes
   156       e.g. the double rendering of link icons.
   157     * http auth: do auth_type comparisons case-insensitively (spec-compliant)
   159   New features:
   160     * EmbedObject macro: changed default width value for PDF files to 100%
   161                          (use a recent Adobe Reader to make this work).
   162     * CopyPage action: added a TextCha for it
   164   Other changes:    
   165     * Creole parser: Add second license: BSD
   167 Version 1.8.3:
   168   Bug fixes:
   169     * AttachFile XSS fixes: move escaping to error_msg / upload_form
   170     * AttachFile move: add more escaping (maybe not XSS exploitable though)
   171     * email attachments import with xapian indexing enabled: fix AttributeError
   172     * fix wrong links in attachment notifications
   173     * AttachFile do=view: quote filename and pagename params for EmbedObject
   174       macro call
   175     * AttachFile: fix exception when someone just clicks on upload, without
   176       giving a file
   177     * ldap_login: use None as default value for ssl certs/keys (using '' for
   178       the pathes lets it fail with Connect Error)
   179     * release edit lock if someone saves an unchanged page
   180     * fix sendmail.encodeAddress (do not [QP] encode blanks, do not un-
   181       necessarily use [QP] encoding for pure ascii mail addresses)
   182     * Fixed docs bug: see HINT about secrets configuration at version 1.8.0
   183       (1.8.0 Other changes).
   184     * backup action: add 'self' dummy argument for backup_exclude function
   185     * login action: fix formatting of error messages
   186     * unsubscribe action: add msg types so icons get displayed

   188     * macro.TableOfContents: bug fix for MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsIgnoresSectionNumbersPragma
   190   New features:
   191     * added modernized_cms theme
   192     * use url_prefix_fckeditor if you don't want to use the builtin FCKeditor
   193       of moin, but a separate one at some specific url
   194     * action.Load: added textcha feature
   195     * add mumble protocol (nice and good quality F/OSS VOIP conference chat sw)
   196     * ldap auth: new name_callback param to create a custom wiki username (not
   197       the ldap login username).
   199   Other changes:
   200     * add compatibility code for set to xapwrap.index (fix py 2.6 warnings)
   201     * wikiutil: MIMETYPES_MORE extended for .md5 as text/plain
   204 Version 1.8.2:
   205   Bug fixes:
   206     * Fix AttachFile and antispam XSS issues.
   207     * Modernized, modern and rightsidebar themes: make nonexistent or
   208       badinterwiki links gray also when they are already visited.
   209     * Fix anchor parsing for interwiki links and #redirect processing
   210       instruction.
   211     * user.apply_recovery_token: key must be of type string (for Python 2.6).
   212     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorBreaksIndentedTable.
   213     * Fix autofilter javascript breakage caused by including a databrowser
   214       widget.
   215     * Use per-wiki i18n cache (fixes wrong links to other farm wikis).
   216     * Made cfg.interwikiname and cfg.user_homewiki unicode objects (str only
   217       worked for ascii names).
   218     * Xapian search: fixed historysearch.
   219     * Xapian search indexing:
   220       * Fix index updating for trivial changes.
   221       * With history search enabled and in update mode, do not try to re-index
   222         old page revisions again.
   223       * With history search enabled, index page attachments only once.
   224       * Fix last modified time of xapian index (shown on SystemInfo page).
   225     * Make logging handlers defined in logging.handlers work (e.g.
   226       class=handlers.RotatingFileHandler)
   227     * Jabber notifications:
   228       * Use an RFC compliant message type.
   229       * Fix user creation notifications.
   230     * OpenID: Compatibility fix for python-openid 2.x.x (also works with
   231       1.x.x), fixes crash when trying to associate moin user to OpenID.
   232     * Have a in wiki/server/ so copies it.
   233     * Fixed inconsistent handling of fragments / anchor IDs:
   234       * Fixed creole and wiki parser, other parsers might need similar fixes.
   235       * IDs with blanks, non-ASCII chars etc. are now sanitized in the same way
   236         for links as well as for link targets, so the user editing a page won't
   237         have to bother with it.
   238         E.g. [[#123 foo bar]] will link to:
   239         * <<Anchor(123 foo bar)>> (moin) or {{#123 foo bar}} (creole)
   240         * headline = 123 foo bar = (moin / creole)
   241         Simple rule: if the link and the target are consistent, it should work.
   242       * The creole wiki parser created non-human-readable sha1 heading IDs
   243         before 1.8.2, now it creates same (sometimes readable) heading IDs as
   244         the moin wiki parser.
   245       * TitleIndex/WordIndex now also use IDs sanitized in that way internally.
   246       HINT: if you manually worked around the inconsistencies/bugs before, you
   247             likely have to remove those workarounds now. Same thing if you used
   248             creole's sha1 heading IDs or IDs on TitleIndex/WordIndex.
   250   Other changes:
   251     * Updated FCKeditor to 2.6.4 (== many bug fixes in the GUI editor).
   252     * Enhanced privacy by a new setting: cfg.log_remote_addr (default: True),
   253       it controls whether moin logs the remote's IP/hostname to edit-log and
   254       event-log. Use log_remote_addr = False to enhance privacy.
   255     * Streamline attachment_drawing formatter behaviour.
   256     * Search results: only redirect to a single search result for titlesearch
   257       (fuzzy goto functionality), but not for fulltext search results.
   260 Version 1.8.1:
   261   Bug fixes:
   262     * Workaround win32 locking problems (caused by spurious access denied
   263       exceptions on that platform).
   264     * Fix unicode errors that happened when password checker failed a password
   265     * WikiConfig/WikiConfigHelp: fixed wrong language table headings
   266     * Themes: make the margins around trail line work properly
   267     * "modernized" theme:
   268       * make broken links gray
   269       * add new right/center/left/justify css classes
   270       * don't force Arial
   271     * Standalone server: be more specific when catching socket exceptions,
   272       treat socket errors in http header emission in the same way.
   273     * GUI editor:
   274       * Fix heading levels when inserting new headings.
   275       * Fix headers already sent exception when using e.g. edit LOCKing.
   276     * Xapian indexing: fixed missing import for execfilter (only happened on
   277       non-posix platforms like win32)
   279   * New features:
   280     * Themes:
   281      * Make the TOC shrinkwrap, add white background to navigation macro.
   282        The table of contents looked bad spanning the whole width of the page.
   283        It's made to shrinkwrap now, so it will only get as wide, as the longest
   284        heading. We use display:inline-table, so this won't work in MS IE6,
   285        which still displays it the old way.
   286        Navigation macro now has a white background, to make it more readable
   287        when it's floating over a pre block or TOC.
   288      * Make the numbers in lists in table of contents right-aligned.
   289      * Refactored and extended theme.html_stylesheets() to make alternate
   290        stylesheets possible. Stylesheet definitions now can either be:
   291        2-tuples: (media, href)  # backwards compatibility
   292        or:
   293        3-tuples: (media, href, title)  # new, for defining alternate stylesheets
   294        This works within themes as well as in the wiki config.
   295        See also:
   298 Version 1.8.0:
   299   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
   300         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
   301         relative to 1.7.2 release.
   302         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
   305   New Features: ==============================================================
   306     * HINT: New "modernized" theme - if you use "modern" [default], try:
   307       theme_default = 'modernized'
   308       If you find problems with "modernized", please report them because we
   309       want to use it as default theme in future.
   310     * GUI Editor:
   311       * upgraded to use FCKEditor version 2.6.3
   312       * user can insert and modify various types of MoinMoin links
   313     * New plugin_dirs setting to allow multiple plugin pathes (additional to
   314       the automatically configured plugin_dir [default: data_dir/plugin]).
   315     * @EMAIL@ expands to a MailTo macro call with the obfuscated email address
   316       of the current user.
   317     * New macros "WikiConfig" and "WikiConfigHelp".
   318     * Per-parser quickhelp, 'quickhelp' class variable of parser class.
   319     * Secure session cookies for https (see cfg.cookie_secure).
   320     * Added left/center/right/justify css classes to builtin themes.
   321       Use them like:
   322       {{{#!wiki justify
   323       this content is justified....
   324       }}}
   326   Removed Features: ==========================================================
   327     * HINT: url_prefix setting (use url_prefix_static or just use the default)
   328     * traceback_log_dir setting (we just use logging.exception)
   329     * editor_quickhelp setting (replaced by per-parser quickhelp)
   330     * Restoring backups with the backup action and related settings (while
   331       creating backups is no big issue and should work OK, restoring them
   332       had fundamental issues related to overwriting or not-overwriting of
   333       existing files - thus we removed the "restore" part of the action and
   334       recommend that you just contact the wiki server admin in case of trouble,
   335       give him your wiki backup file and let him carefully restore it.)
   336     * Removed unmaintained DesktopEdition (moin 1.5.x style) and phpwiki
   337       migration scripts from contrib/ directory.
   339   Bug Fixes: =================================================================
   340     * GUI Editor - fixed lots of bugs.
   341     * Fixing https detection for servers using HTTPS=1 and also for WSGI
   342       servers not using HTTPS/SSL_ environment, but just wsgi.url_scheme.
   343     * Search results: link to 'view' rendering of found attachments.
   344     * Standalone server: fix serverClass and interface argument processing,
   345       announce used serverClass in log output.
   346     * mointwisted: fixed Twisted start script.
   347     * Logging:
   348       * Use logging framework for messages emitted by warnings module (e.g.
   349         DeprecationWarning), silence some specific warnings.
   350       * Removed superfluous linefeeds in timing log output.
   351     * Bug fix for language not installed (MoinMoinBugs/WikiLanguageNotDefined).
   352     * Fixed editbar hidden comment link cosmetics for sidebar themes (hide the
   353       complete list element).
   354     * MoinMoinBugs/DoubleScriptNameInSitemap (fixing urls given by sitemap
   355       action, if the wiki does not run in the root url of the site)
   356     * Fixed backup action configuration (broke on win32).
   357     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/PackagesAddRevision.
   358     * SyncPages: add workaround for callers calling log_status with encoded
   359       bytestrings.
   360     * Fixed dbw_hide_buttons javascript.
   361     * HINT: Jabber bot can now be configured to use an authentication realm
   362       which is different from the server's hostname; the xmpp_node
   363       configuration parameter can now contain a full JID and the xmpp_resource
   364       parameter is no longer supported.
   366   Other Changes: =============================================================
   367     * HINT: new configuration for misc. secrets, please use either:
   368           secrets = "MySecretLooongString!" # one secret for everything
   369       or:
   370           secrets = {
   371               'xmlrpc/ProcessMail': 'yourmailsecret', # for mailimport
   372               'xmlrpc/RemoteScript': 'yourremotescriptsecret',
   373               'action/cache': 'yourcachesecret', # unguessable cache keys
   374               'wikiutil/tickets': 'yourticketsecret', # edit tickets
   375               'jabberbot': 'yourjabberbotsecret', # jabberbot communication
   376           }
   377       Secret strings must be at least 10 chars long.
   378       Note: mail_import_secret setting is gone, use
   379             secrets["xmlrpc/ProcessMail"] instead of it.
   380       Note: jabberbot secret setting is gone, use
   381             secrets["jabberbot"] instead of it.
   382     * HINT: user_autocreate setting was removed from wiki configuration and
   383       replaced by a autocreate=<boolean> parameter of the auth objects that
   384       support user profile auto creation.
   385     * moin import irclog: use irssi parser to format logs, mapped .irc
   386       extension to text/plain mimetype.
   387     * HINT: backup action: backup_exclude (default: "do not exclude anything")
   388       is now a function f(filename) that tells whether a file should be
   389       excluded from backup.
   390       You can get the old regex exclusion functionality by using:
   391       backup_exclude = re.compile(your_regex).search
   392       Be careful with your regex, you might need to use re.escape() to escape
   393       characters that have a special meaning in regexes (e.g.: \.[] etc.).
   394       If in doubt, maybe just leave backup_exclude at the default and don't
   395       exclude anything.
   396     * Speed up javascript comments processing on IE by getElementsByClassName()
   397     * Added sk (slovak) i18n, updated i18n.
   400 1.7.3:
   401   New features:
   402     * Secure session cookies for https, see cfg.cookie_secure.
   403     * Add left/center/right/justify classes to builtin themes.
   405   Fixes:
   406     * Python 2.3 compatibility fixes.
   407     * Fixed https detection for servers using HTTPS=1 and also for wsgi servers
   408       not using HTTPS/SSL_ environment, but just wsgi.url_scheme.
   409     * GUI editor:
   410       * Fix crash when editing a page with non-ASCII pagename and inserting a link
   411       * Fix "headers already sent exception" with edit LOCKs.
   412     * i18n.__init__: Bug fix for wiki language not installed.
   413     * Fixed URLs given by sitemap action, if the wiki does not run at / URL.
   414     * Search results: link to 'view' rendering of found attachments
   415     * Logging:    
   416       * Removed superfluous linefeed in timing log output.
   417       * Use logging framework for messages emitted by warnings module (e.g.
   418         DeprecationWarning), silence some specific warnings.
   419     * Fix dbw_hide_buttons javascript.
   420     * Standalone server:
   421       * fix serverClass argument processing
   422       * fix --interface="" argument processing
   423     * mointwisted:
   424       * added missing pidFile parameter
   425       * better use for pidFile to avoid conflicts and keep same
   426         behaviour as in the past
   427     * Jabber bot can now be configured to use an authentication realm which
   428       is different from the server's hostname
   431 Version 1.7.2:
   432   Fixes:
   433     * Fix leakage of edit-log file handles (leaked 1 file handle / request!).
   434     * Fix for MoinMoinBugs/SystemAdminMailAccountData (using POST and forms)
   435     * Wiki parser: avoid IndexError for empty #! line
   436     * MonthCalendar macro: fix parameter parsing / url generation
   437     * Xapian indexing filters (MoinMoin/filter/ or data/plugin/filter/):
   438       Some indexing filter scripts (e.g. for MS Word documents or PDF files)
   439       failed on windows because of the single-quote quoting we used (that
   440       works on Linux and other Posix systems). The fix introduces platform-
   441       dependant automatic quoting, using double-quotes on win32 and single-
   442       quotes on posix.
   443       HINT: if you use own filter plugins based on execfilter, you have to
   444       update them as the filename quoting (was '%s') is now done automatically
   445       and must not be part of the command string any more (now just use %s).
   446       See MoinMoin/filter/ for some up-to-date code (esp. the PDF filter).
   447     * Prevent CategoryTemplate being listed as a category (it is a Template,
   448       but matched also the category regex) - added to sample wikiconfig.
   449     * LDAP auth: fix processing of TLS options
   450     * UpdateGroup xmlrpc server side: fix wrong arg count error
   451     * UpdateGroup client: use multicall / auth_token, refactor code so that
   452       updateGroup function is reusable.
   453     * Improve Python 2.3 compatibility, add notes where 2.4 is required.
   456 Version 1.7.1:
   457   New features:
   458     * New 'cache' action (see developer notes).
   460   Fixes:
   461     * Security fix: XSS fix for advanced search form
   462     * Avoid creation of new pagedirs with empty edit-log files by just
   463       accessing a non-existant page. If you used 1.7 before, you likely have
   464       quite some trash pagedirs now and you can clean them up by using:
   465       moin --config-dir=... --wiki-url=... maint cleanpage
   466       This will output some shell script (please review it before running!)
   467       that can be used to move trash pages into some trash/ directory and also
   468       moves deleted pages into some deleted/ directory. Maybe keep a copy of
   469       those directories for a while just for the case.
   470     * Server specific fixes:
   471       * standalone ( fix --pidfile and --group option, fix
   472         operation without a (use builtin defaults).
   473       * mod_python: work around mod_python 3.3.1 problems with file uploads.
   474         Note: if you are still using mod_python, we strongly recommend you
   475 	      try out mod_wsgi (in daemon mode) - it has less bugs, better
   476 	      security, better separation, WSGI is a Python standard, and moin
   477 	      developers also use WSGI. See HelpOnInstalling/ApacheWithModWSGI.
   478     * revert action: fixed for deleted pages.
   479     * Search:
   480       * Xapian indexing: Removed crappy "hostname" tokenization.
   481         Fixes MoinMoinBugs/1.7 XapianNotWorkingWithLeadingNumbersInTitle.
   482         Also tokenize CamelCase parts of non-wikiwords.
   483       * Make query parser reject more invalid input.
   484       * If query parsing raises a BracketError, at least tell what the problem
   485         is (and not just raise empty  ValueError).
   486       * Category search: ignore traling whitespace after ----
   487     * Argument parser:
   488       * Fixed sort() usage in UnitArgument to be Python 2.3 compatible.
   489       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TypeErrorInWikiutils.
   490     * Macros:
   491       * TableOfContents: skip outer-most <ol> levels when page isn't using
   492         the biggest headings
   493       * MonthCalendar: fix MoinMoinBugs/MonthCalendarBreaksOnApostrophe
   494     * xslt parser: fix MoinMoinBugs/DoNotConvertUnicodeToUTF8ForXsltParser
   495     * OpenID RP: make it compatible to python-openid 2.2.x
   496     * PackagePages.collectpackage: removed encoding from file name of zipfile
   497     * Surge protection: exclude localnet no matter whether user is known or not.
   498     * Notifications: fix MoinMoinBugs/DuplicateNewUserNotification
   499     * Script moin account create/disable/resetpw: checks for already existing
   500       user now.
   502   Other changes:
   503     * Prevent CategoryTemplate being listed as a category (it is a Template)
   504       by changing the default page_category_regex.
   506   Developer notes:
   507     * New MoinMoin.action.cache - can be used to cache expensively rendered
   508       output, e.g. generated images). Once put into the cache, moin can emit
   509       a http response for that content very fast and very efficient (including
   510       "304 not changed" handling.
   511     * New file-like API in MoinMoin.caching (good for dealing with medium
   512       to large files without consuming lots of memory).
   513     * wikiutil.importPlugin supports getting the whole plugin module object
   514       by giving function=None.
   517 Version 1.7.0:
   518   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
   519         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
   520         relative to 1.6.3 release.
   521         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
   524   New Features: ==============================================================
   525     * HINT: we added generic UPDATE instructions as docs/UPDATE.html.
   527     * HINT: Standalone server usage changed:
   528       * Standalone server can now be started via the "moin" script command,
   529         optionally backgrounding itself.
   530         See: moin server standalone --help
   531       * In the toplevel dir, we have renamed to (it was
   532         often confused with the moin scripting command).
   533         Now you have:
   534         * - to start the standalone server
   535         * - to configure the standalone server
   536         * wikiserverlogging.conf - to configure logging for it (default config
   537           is ok for all day use, but can easily be modified for debugging)
   538         * - to configure the wiki engine
   539       * Removed old moin daemonizing script (replaced by moin server standalone
   540         --start/stop)
   541       * We now provide the "moin" script command also for people not using
   542, see wiki/server/moin.
   544     * Logging
   545       * New powerful and flexible logging, please see wiki/config/logging/ -
   546         HINT: you have to upgrade your server adaptor script (e.g. moin.cgi)
   547         and load a logging configuration that fits your needs from there, or
   548         alternatively you can also set MOINLOGGINGCONF environment variable
   549         to point at your logging config file.
   550         If you use some of our sample logging configs, make sure you have a
   551         look INTO them to fix e.g. the path of the logfile it will use.
   552       * Moin now logs the path from where it loaded its configuration(s).
   554     * Authentication / Sessions:
   555       * HINT: New authentication plugin system, see HelpOnAuthentication. If
   556         you do not use the builtin default for 'auth' list, you likely have to
   557         change your configuration. See wiki/config/snippets/ for some samples.
   558       * HINT: New session handling system (no moin_session any more, now done
   559         internally and automatically), see HelpOnSessions for details.
   560       * Added OpenID client and server support.
   561         See: HelpOnAuthentication and HelpOnOpenIDProvider.
   562       * cfg.trusted_auth_methods is a list of auth methods that put an
   563         authenticated user into the "Trusted" ACL group.
   565     * User profiles / password recovery / notification:
   566       * New newacount action for creating new user accounts/profiles. If you
   567         don't want users creating new accounts on their own, you can add this
   568         action to actions_excluded list.
   569       * New recoverpass action for password recovery:
   570         If you forgot your password, recoverpass sends you an email with a
   571         password recovery token (NOT the encrypted password) that is valid
   572         for 12 hours.
   573       * New moin account resetpw script for resetting a user's password by
   574         the wiki admin.
   575       * New preferences plugin system, see MoinMoin/userprefs/
   576       * New notification system with an optional jabber notification bot, see
   577         HelpOnNotification. HINT: wiki users have to check their notification
   578         settings, esp. if they want to receive trivial update notifications.
   580     * The diff action now has navigation buttons for prev/next change and also
   581       a revert button to revert to the revision shown below the diff display.
   582     * ThemeBase: support Universal Edit Button, see there for details:
   584     * ?action=info&max_count=42 - show the last 42 history entries of the page.
   585       max_count has a default of default_count and a upper limit of
   586       limit_max_count - you can configure both in your wiki config:
   587       cfg.history_count = (100, 200) # (default_count, limit_max_count) default
   588     * The CSV parser can sniff the delimiter from the first CSV line so other
   589       delimeters than ";" can be used.
   590     * Admonition support. Added styling for tip, note, important, warning 
   591       and caution in the modern theme. For more info see HelpOnAdmonitions.
   592     * DocBook-formatter:
   593       * supports HTML entities like &rarr; and &#9731;
   594       * supports the FootNote macro
   595       * supports bulletless lists
   596       * support for admonitions
   597       * will export the wiki page's edit history as the generated article's
   598         revision history. Doesn't add history of included pages.
   599       * supports for the MoinMoin comment element, though only inline comments
   600         are likely to be valid since the DocBook remark is an inline element.
   601     * New Hits macro: shows the total hits for the page it is used on.
   603   Removed Features: ==========================================================
   604     * HINT: Removed attachments direct serving (cfg.attachments - this was
   605             deprecated since long!). Use AttachFile action to serve attachments.
   606     * Duplicated file attachment upload code was removed from Load action (just
   607       use AttachFile action to deal with attachments).
   608     * Removed 'test' action. If you like to run unit tests, use py.test.
   609     * Removed Login macro.
   611   Bug Fixes: =================================================================
   612     * Better handling of ImportErrors (farmconfig, macros, wikiserverconfig).
   613     * Fix failure of detection of on-disk cache updates.
   614     * Fix traceback in on Mac OS X when "import Carbon" fails.
   616     * AttachFile action / file up- and download / zip support:
   617       * WSGI: use wsgi.file_wrapper (or a builtin simple wrapper). Fixes memory
   618         consumption for sending of large file attachments.
   619       * FastCGI: flush often. Fixes memory consumption for sending of large
   620         file attachments.
   621       * Use the open temporary file for receiving file attachment uploads
   622         (fixes big memory consumption for large file uploads).
   623       * Catch runtime errors raised by zipfile stdlib modules when trying to
   624         process a defective zip.
   625       * When unzipping member files, decode their filenames from utf-8 and
   626         replace invalid chars.
   627       * Make error msg less confusing when trying to overwrite a file attachment
   628         without having 'delete' rights.
   630     * HINT: page_*_regex processing had to be changed to fix category search.
   631       If you don't use the builtin (english) defaults, you will have to change
   632       your configuration:
   633         old (default): page_category_regex = u'^Category[A-Z]'
   634         new (default): page_category_regex = ur'(?P<all>Category(?P<key>\S+))'
   635       As you see, the old regex did work for detecting whether a pagename is
   636       a category, but it could not be used to search for a category tag in the
   637       page text. The new regex can be used for both and identifies the complete
   638       category tag (match in group 'all', e.g. "CategoryFoo") as well as the
   639       category key (match in group 'key', e.g. "Foo") by using named regex
   640       groups. \S+ means the category key can be anything non-blank.
   641       If you like to simultaneously support multiple languages, use something
   642       like this: ur'(?P<all>(Kategorie|Category)(?P<key>\S+))'
   643       HINT: after changing your configuration, please rebuild the cache:
   644         * stop moin
   645         * moin ... maint cleancache
   646         * start moin
   647       If you don't do this, your groups / dicts will stop working (and also
   648       your ACLs that use those groups). You better do a test whether it works.
   650     * Xapian search / indexing / stemming:
   651       * Use text/<format> as mimetype for pages.
   652       * Index also major and minor for mimetypes, so it will find 'text' or
   653         'plain' as well as 'text/plain'
   654       * Fix searching for negative terms.
   655       * Improve result list ordering.
   656       * Index filters: redirect stderr to logging system.
   657       * Remove crappy num regex from WikiAnalyzer, improve tokenization.
   658       * Fix AttributeError that happened when trying to access an attribute only
   659         used with xapian search (but regex search is not done by xapian)
   660       * Fix IndexErrors happening when pages are renamed/nuked after the index
   661         was built.
   662       * Fixed indexing of WikiWords (index "WikiWords", "Wiki" and "Words").
   663       * Fix crash if default language is un-stemmable.
   664       * xapian_stemming: removed some strange code (fixes search
   665         title:lowercaseword with xapian_stemming enabled)
   666       * Fixed category indexing (index CategoryFoo correctly as CategoryFoo, not
   667         Foo - for all languages, see page_*_regex change above).
   668     * Builtin search: support mimetype: search for pages for the builtin search
   669       engine (using text/<format>).
   671     * Parser fixes:
   672       * Wiki: fix subscript parsing (was broken for cases like 'a,,1,2,,').
   673       * Docbook: fixed detection of WikiWords.
   674       * All: Add ssh protocol to url_schemas for ssh:... URLs.
   676     * XMLRPC:
   677       * Fix xmlrpc call to use content-length, if available,
   678         fixes hangs with wsgiref server.
   679       * Wiki xmlrpc getPageInfoVersion() fixed:
   680         * works correctly now for old page versions (was unsupported)
   681         * works correctly now for current page version (reported wrong
   682           data when a page had attachment uploads after the last page
   683           edit)
   684         * returns a Fault if it did not find a edit-log entry
   686   Other Changes: =============================================================
   687     * Using better ACLs and comments on system/help pages now, just taking
   688       away 'write' permission, but using default ACLs for everything else.
   689     * HINT: If you want to use xapian based indexed search, you need to have
   690       Xapian >= 1.0.0 (and you can remove PyStemmer in case you have installed
   691       it just for moin - we now use the stemmer built into Xapian as it
   692       supports utf-8 since 1.0.0).
   693     * Changed default value of cfg.search_results_per_page to 25.
   694     * Surge Protection: If a user is authenticated by a trusted authentication
   695       (see also cfg.auth_methods_trusted) then he/she won't trigger surge
   696       protection, but moin will just log a INFO level log msg with the user's
   697       name so you can find the culprit in case he/she is overusing ressources.
   698     * HINT: Added MyPages and CopyPage to actions_excluded because MyPages
   699       doesn't work without special SecurityPolicy anyway and CopyPage has
   700       questionable behaviour.
   701     * Load action now just creates a new revision of the target page, the
   702       target pagename defaults to the current page name and can be edited.
   703       If the target pagename is empty, moin tries to derive the target pagename
   704       from the uploaded file's name.
   705       Load tries to decode the file contents first using utf-8 coding and, if
   706       that fails, it forces decoding using iso-8859-1 coding (and replacing
   707       invalid characters).
   708     * HINT: cfg.show_login is gone, see code in theme/, this may
   709       affect many themes!
   710     * HINT: a new userprefs/ plugin directory will be created by the usual
   711       "moin migration data" command.
   712     * DocBook-formatter:
   713       * generates a valid DOCTYPE
   714       * table support has been improved
   715       * handling of definitions and glossaries is more robust
   716       * supports program language and line numbering in code areas
   717     * HINT: ldap_login behaves a bit different now:
   718       In previous moin versions, ldap_login tended to either successfully
   719       authenticate a user or to completely cancel the whole login process in
   720       any other case (including ldap server down or exceptions happening).
   721       This made subsequent auth list entries rather pointless.
   722       Now it behaves like this:
   723         * user not found in LDAP -> give subsequent auth list entries a
   724           chance to authenticate the user (same happens if it finds multiple
   725           LDAP entries when searching - it logs an additional warning then).
   726         * user found, but wrong password -> cancel login
   727         * ldap server not reachable or other exceptions -> give subsequent
   728           auth list entries a chance
   729       So please make sure that you really trust every auth list entry you have
   730       configured when upgrading or it might maybe change behaviour in a
   731       unexpected or unwanted way.
   732     * ldap_login now supports failover: if it can't contact your LDAP server
   733       (e.g. because it is down or unreachable), it will just continue and
   734       try to authenticate with other authenticators (if there are any in
   735       cfg.auth list). So if you have some mirroring LDAP backup server, just
   736       put another authenticator querying it there:
   737           ldap_auth1 = LDAPAuth(server_uri='ldap://mainserver', ...)
   738           ldap_auth2 = LDAPAuth(server_uri='ldap://backupserver', ...)
   739           auth = [ldap_auth1, ldap_auth2, ]
   741   Developer notes: ===========================================================
   742     * Page.last_edit() is DEPRECATED, please use Page.edit_info().
   743     * Page._last_edited() is GONE (was broken anyway), please use
   744       Page.editlog_entry().
   745     * New request.send_file() call, making it possible to use server-specific
   746       optimizations.
   747     * getText's (aka _()) 'formatted' keyword param (default: True in 1.6 and
   748       early 1.7) was renamed/changed: it is now called 'wiki' and defaults to
   749       False. Example calls:
   750       _('This will NOT get parsed/formatted by MoinMoin!')
   751       _('This will be parsed/formatted by MoinMoin!', wiki=True)
   752       _('This will be used as a left side of percent operator. %s',
   753         wiki=True, percent=True)
   754     * Page.url 'relative' keyword param (default: True in 1.6 and early 1.7)
   755       was changed to default False).
   756     * The themedict no longer contains 'page_user_prefs' and 'user_prefs',
   757       this may affect custom themes.
   758     * The rst-parser's admonition class names are no longer prepended with
   759       "admonition_". Instead the class names are now for example "note"
   760       and not "admonition_note".
   763 Version 1.6.3:
   764   Fixes:
   765     * Security fix: a check in the user form processing was not working as
   766       expected, leading to a major ACL and superuser priviledge escalation
   767       problem. If you use ACL entries other than "Known:" or "All:" and/or
   768       a non-empty superuser list, you need to urgently install this upgrade.
   769     * Security fix: if acl_hierarchic=True was used (False is the default),
   770       ACL processing was wrong for some cases, see
   771       MoinMoinBugs/AclHierarchicPageAclSupercededByAclRightsAfter
   772     * For {{transclusion_targets}} we checked the protocol to be http(s),
   773       this check was removed (because file: and ftp: should work also) and
   774       it's not moin's problem if the user uses silly protocols that can't
   775       work for that purpose.
   776     * Fixed TableOfContents macro for included pages.
   777     * server_fastcgi: added Config.port = None. If you want to use some port
   778       (not a fd), you can set it now in your Config, e.g. port = 8888.
   779     * category: search matches categories even if there are comment lines
   780       between the horizontal rule and the real categories, e.g.:
   781       ... some page text ...
   782       ----
   783       ## optionally some comments, e.g. about possible categories:
   784       ## CategoryJustACommentNotFound
   785       CategoryTheRealAndOnly
   787       Note: there might be multiple comment lines, but all real categories
   788             must be on a single line either directly below the ---- or
   789             directly below some comment lines.
   791   Other changes:
   792     * Added 'notes' to config.url_schemas, so you can use notes://notessrv/...
   793       to invoke your Lotus Notes client.
   794     * After creating a new user profile via UserPreferences, you are logged
   795       in with that user (no need to immediately enter the same name/password
   796       again for logging in).
   799 Version 1.6.2:
   800   Fixes:
   801     * Security fix: check the ACL of the included page for the rst parser's
   802       include directive.
   803     * Potential security/DOS fix: we removed cracklib / python-crack support
   804       in password_checker as it is not thread-safe and caused segmentation
   805       faults (leading to server error 500 because the moin process died).
   806     * Fix moin_session code for auth methods other than moin_login (e.g. http).
   807       If you have worked around this using moin_anon_session, you can remove
   808       this workaround now (except if you want anon sessions for other reasons).
   809     * Fix moin_session code to delete invalid session cookies and also create
   810       a new session cookie if it got a valid user_obj at the same time.
   811     * Fix xmlrpc applyAuthToken: give good error msg for empty token.
   812     * Fixed category search, use category:CategoryFoo as search term.
   813     * xapian_stemming = False (changed default) to workaround some problems
   814       in the code enabled by it. Fixes the problems when searching for
   815       lowercase or numeric titles or word fragments with the builtin search.
   816     * Fix trail for anon users without a session, do not show a single page.
   817     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/WikiSyncComplainsAboutTooOldMoin.
   818     * Wiki parser: fixed strange insertion of unwanted paragraphs.
   819     * Wiki parser: fix interwiki linking:
   820       Free interwiki links did not change since 1.5 (they still require to match
   821       [A-Z][A-Za-z]+ for the wikiname part, i.e. a ASCII word beginning with an
   822       uppercase letter).
   823       Bracketed interwiki links now behave similar to how they worked in 1.5:
   824       Moin just splits off the part left of the colon - no matter how it looks
   825       like. It then tries to find that in the interwiki map. If it is found,
   826       a interwiki link gets rendered. If it is not found, moin will render a
   827       link to a local wiki page (that has a colon in the pagename). It will
   828       also render a local wiki page link if there is no colon at all, of course.
   829       Examples:
   830       [[lowercasewikiname:somepage]] does an interwiki link (if in the map).
   831       [[ABC:n]] does a local link to page ABC:n (if ABC is NOT in the map).
   832     * Wiki parser: fix interwiki linking for the case that there are query args
   833       in the interwiki map entry and you give additional query args via link
   834       markup (uses correct query arg separator now), e.g.:
   835       [[Google:searchterm|search this|&foo=bar]]
   836     * Creole parser: fixed bug that prevents images inside links.
   837     * Python parser: catch indentation error.
   838     * PageEditor: fixed copyPage for write restricted pages.
   839     * GUI editor: fixed javascript error with too complex word_rule regex,
   840       see MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorSyntaxError.
   841     * Fixed FCKeditor dialog boxes for FireFox3.
   842     * NewPage macro/newpage action: fixed for non-ascii template pagenames.
   843     * FootNote macro: Fix MoinMoinBugs/FootNoteNumbering.
   844     * EmbedObject macro: bug fix for image mimetype
   845     * WSGI:
   846       * fix TWikiDraw saving a drawing by also evaluating the query args.
   847       * work around unpythonic WSGI 1.0 read() API, fixing broken xmlrpc
   848         putPage with mod_wsgi
   849     * Fix highlighting (see MoinMoinBugs/SearchForPagesWithComments).
   850     * Fix logfile code for EACCESS errors.
   851     * Removed the "logging initialized" log messages because it was issued once
   852       per request for CGI.
   854   Other changes:
   855     * Show "Comments" toggling link in edit bar only if the page really
   856       contains comments.
   857     * Made default configuration of surge protection a bit more forgiving,
   858       especially for edit action which is currently also used for previews.
   859     * Updated i18n, system/help pages, added Macedonian system text translation.
   860     * Improved moin xmlrpc write command's builtin docs and auto-append
   861       ?action=xmlrpc2 to the target wiki url given.
   864 Version 1.6.1:
   865   New features:
   866     * Improved params for [[target|label|params]]:
   867       Added accesskey link tag attribute, e.g.: [[target|label|accesskey=1]].
   868       Additionally to specifying link tag attributes (like class=foo), you can
   869       now also specify &key=value for getting that into the query string of
   870       the link URL.
   871       The "&" character is important, don't forget it or it won't get into the
   872       query string!
   873       E.g. for an attachment, you can use:
   874       [[attachment:foo.pdf|Direct download of foo.pdf|&do=get]]
   875       E.g. for linking to some specific diff, you can use:
   876       [[SomePage|see that diff|&action=diff,&rev1=23,&rev2=42]]
   877       See also the updated HelpOnLinking page!
   878     * AdvancedSearch: make multipe categories/languages/mimetype selections possible
   879     * Added a configuration directive to only do one bind to the LDAP server.
   880       This is useful if you bind as the user the first time.
   881       ldap_bindonce = False # default
   883   Fixes:
   884     * Fix XSS issue in login action.
   885     * Fix wrong pagename when creating new pages on Mac OS X - that was a big
   886       showstopper for moin 1.6.0 on Mac OS X.
   887     * Fixed 1.6 migration script:
   888       Make sorting python 2.3 compatible.
   889       Just skip corrupted event log lines.
   890       Fix link conversion by using data.pre160 as data_dir.
   891       Fix bad /InterWiki pagenames when encountering interwiki links with bad
   892       wiki names.
   893       Improve ImageLink conversion by using its argument parser code.
   894       Added STONEAGE_IMAGELINK (default: False) switch to wiki markup converter,
   895       toggle it if you had a very old ImageLink macro in production and the
   896       converter output has target and image interchanged.
   897       Fixed UnicodeDecodeError for wrongly encoded attachment filenames.
   898     * Wiki parser:
   899       Fix parsing of link/transclusion description and params.
   900       Fix relative attachment targets.
   901       Fix supported URL schemes (some got lost since 1.5.8).
   902       Showing an upload link for non-existing non-text/non-image transclusions
   903       now (like e.g. *.pdf).
   904     * RST parser: fix attachment: and drawing: processing
   905     * Fix quickhelp when editing RST markup pages.
   906     * Fix Despam action: editor grouping was broken, increase time interval
   907       to 30 days.
   908     * Fix AdvancedSearch domain:system search crashing.
   909     * Only switch off xapian search if we didn't use it because of missing index.
   910     * Fix saving twikidraw drawings by removing 'java' from spider regex.
   911     * Fix classic theme's unsubscribe icon's action link.
   912     * Fix AttachFile action: don't show unzip for packages, only show install
   913       for superuser.
   914     * Fix "su user" troubles on UserPreferences.
   915     * Removed unit tests from ?action=test (due to changes in our test
   916       environment, using py.test now, this was broken).
   917     * Duplicated the top directories' to wiki/server/ so it gets
   918       installed by
   919     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6.0LanguageIgnoreBrowserConfigurationError
   920     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/MoveAttachmentNotWorkingWithModPython
   921     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6.0SupplementationAndAccessRights
   922     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/RenamingUserAllowsOldUsernameToLogin
   923     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorExcelPasteExpatErrorUnboundPrefix
   925   Other changes:
   926     * I18n texts, system and help pages updated, please update your underlay
   927       directory (see wiki/underlay/...).
   928     * Improved "moin" script help, invoke it with "moin ... package command --help".
   929     * Added some .ext -> mimetype mappings missing on some systems (like Mac OS X).
   930     * Removed ImageLink macro, as this can be easily done with moin wiki link
   931       syntax now - see HelpOnMacros/ImageLink (the 1.6 migration scripts convert
   932       all ImageLink calls to moin wiki link syntax).
   933     * Updated EmbedObject macro.
   936 Version 1.6.0:
   937  * This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and also
   938    less interesting minor changes and fixes. If you want to see full detail,
   939    read it there:
   941    It took MoinMoin development a lot of work and time to implement all the new
   942    and fixed stuff, so please, before asking for support:
   943    * take the time to read all the stuff below
   944    * read the new help pages (copy them from wiki/underlay/ directory)
   946  * HINT: If you are upgrading from a older moin version and want to keep your
   947    existing data directory, it is essential that you read and follow
   948    README.migration because the wiki markup and user profiles changed significantly.
   949    See also more HINTs below...
   951   New features: ==============================================================
   953   User interface: ------------------------------------------------------------
   954     * Removed "underscore in URL" == "blank in pagename magic" - it made more
   955       trouble than it was worth. If you still want to have a _ in URL, just
   956       put a _ into pagename.
   957     * Discussion pages, see FeatureRequests/DiscussionAndOrCommentPages.
   958     * cfg.password_checker (default: use some simple builtin checks for too
   959       easy passwords and, if available, python-crack).
   960       Use password_checker = None to disable password checking.
   961     * We now have a drafts functionality (no */MoinEditorBackup pages any
   962       more):
   963       * If you edit a page and cancel the edit, use preview or save, a draft
   964         copy gets saved for you to a internal cache area (data/cache/drafts/).
   965       * If it is a save what you did and it succeeds, the draft copy gets
   966         killed right afterwards.
   967       * If you accidentally used cancel or your browser or machine crashes
   968         after you used preview, then just visit that page again and edit it.
   969         the editor will notify you that there is a draft of this page and you
   970         will see a "Load draft" button. Click on it to load the draft into the
   971         editor and save the page.
   972       * The draft storage is per user and per page, but only one draft per page.
   973     * cfg.quicklinks_default and cfg.subscribed_pages_default can be used to
   974       preload new user profiles with configurable values.
   975     * attachment links for non-existing attachments look different now:
   976       the note about the non-existing attachment moved to the link title,
   977       the link is shown with nonexistent class (grey).
   978     * attachment embeddings for non-existing attachments show a grey clip
   979     * The list of InterWiki sites is editable in the wiki (page InterWikiMap),
   980       it is getting reloaded every minute.
   981     * We support some new languages and also have new underlay pages, thanks
   982       to all translators and people helping with the docs!
   984   Actions: -------------------------------------------------------------------
   985     * Synchronisation of wikis using the SyncPages action.
   986     * Xapian (see based indexed search code.
   987       To use this:
   988       * Install xapian-core and xapian-bindings on your machine.
   989         We used 0.9.4, but newer code should hopefully work, too.
   990       * cfg.xapian_search = True
   991       * Execute this to build the index:
   992         $ moin ... index build   # indexes pages and attachments
   993         $ moin ... index build --files=files.lst  # same plus a list of files
   994         You should run those commands as the same user you use for your wiki,
   995         usually this is the webserver userid, e.g.:
   996         $ sudo -u www-data moin --config=... \
   997                index build --files=files.lst
   998     * New searches:
   999         - LanguageSearch: language:de
  1000         - CategorySearch: category:Homepage
  1001         - MimetypeSearch: mimetype:image/png (for attachments/files)
  1002         - DomainSearch: domain:underlay or domain:standard
  1003         - History Search: available in advanced ui
  1004       Note: Some currently only available when Xapian is used.
  1005     * New config options and their defaults:
  1006         xapian_search        False  enables xapian-powered search
  1007         xapian_index_dir     None   directory for xapian indices
  1008                                     (can be shared for wiki farms)
  1009         xapian_stemming      True   toggles usage of stemmer, fallback
  1010                                     to False if no stemmer installed
  1011         search_results_per_page 10  determines how many hits should be
  1012                                     shown on a fullsearch action
  1013         xapian_index_history False  indexes all revisions of pages to
  1014                                     allow searching in their history
  1015     * Speeded up linkto search by avoiding read locks on the pagelinks file.
  1017     * The action menu now calls the actions for the revision of the page you
  1018       are currently viewing. If you are viewing the current page revision, you
  1019       get the same behaviour as in moin 1.5, but if you are viewing an old
  1020       page revision, action "raw" will now show you the raw text of this OLD
  1021       revision (not of the current revision as moin 1.5 did it).
  1022       Note that not every action does evaluate the rev=XX parameter it gets.
  1023       Also please note that the edit, info, ... links in the editbar do NOT
  1024       use the rev parameter, but operate on the latest page revision (as
  1025       they did in moin 1.5).
  1026     * Info action lost the links for "raw", "print" and "revert" actions,
  1027       because you can now just view an old revision and select those actions
  1028       from the menu there.
  1030     * ?action=sitemap emits a google sitemap (XML), listing all your wiki pages
  1031       and the wiki root URL.

  1036       TitleIndex,RecentChanges  0.9 / hourly / <now>

  1038       system/help pages         0.1 / yearly / page last edit
  1040     * Action DeletePage and RenamePage can now be used for subpages of a page, too.
  1041     * Added Action CopyPage so you can use now an existing page or page hierarchy
  1042       as template for a new page, see FeatureRequests/CloneOrCopyPages.
  1043     * "Package Pages" action supports attachments now.
  1044     * Added SisterPages support:
  1045       * action=sisterpages will generate a list of url pagename lines for all
  1046         pages in your moin wiki.
  1047       * action=pollsistersites will poll all sister sites listed in
  1048         cfg.sistersites = [(wikiname, fetchURL), ...]
  1049         The fetch URL for the sistersites depends on the wiki engine, e.g.:
  1050         # moin based wiki:
  1051         ('MoinExample', '')
  1052         # oddmuse based wiki:
  1053         ('EmacsWiki', '')
  1054         # JspWiki based wiki:
  1055         ('JspWiki', '')
  1056       * If the current page exists on some sister wiki, a link to it will be
  1057         added to the navibar.
  1058       You can use sister wikis for adding another dimension to your wiki UI: use
  1059       it for simple multi language support, or for comments, or anything else
  1060       "related" you need.
  1061       TODO: add sistersites_force with sister sites we link to even if they do not
  1062             have the page yet (will work only for moin as we don't know
  1063             pagename>url transformation of other wikis)
  1064     * showtags action that lists all tags related to a page.
  1065     * action=view does use mimetypes of EmbedObject too and text files will be shown
  1066       by using their colorized parsers
  1068   Macros: --------------------------------------------------------------------
  1069     * RecentChanges:
  1070       * If a change has happened after your bookmark, the updated/new/renamed
  1071         icon links to the bookmark diff.
  1072       * If a page does not exist any more (because it was deleted or renamed),
  1073         we link the deleted icon to the diff showing what was deleted (for the
  1074         delete action). For the rename action, we just show the deleted icon.
  1075     * Conflict icon in RecentChanges is shown if a edit conflict is detected.
  1076     * Enhanced SystemAdmin's user browser, so a SuperUser can enable/disable
  1077       users from there.
  1078     * Included EmbedObject macro for embedding different major mimetypes:
  1079       application, audio, image, video, chemical, x-world. 
  1080       You are able to change the defaults of allowed mimetypes in the config
  1081       var mimetypes_embed. The config var mimetypes_xss_protect is used to deny
  1082       mimetypes. The order of both variables is Allow, Deny (mimetypes_embed,
  1083       mimetypes_xss_protect).
  1084     * Added support for @SELF to the NewPage macro.
  1085     * GetText2 macro that allows to translate messages that contain data.
  1086     * Make the FootNote macro filter duplicates and display a list of numbers
  1087       instead of a list of identical footnotes. Thanks to Johannes Berg for the
  1088       patch.
  1090   Parsers: -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1091     * Moin Wiki parser: Changed markup for links, images and macros, see these
  1092       wiki pages: HelpOnLinking, HelpOnMacros
  1093     * New wiki markup for /* inline comments */ - they get rendered as a span
  1094       with class="comment", see next item:
  1095     * There is a new item in the edit bar: "Comments". If you click it, the
  1096       visibility of all class "comment" tags will be toggled. There is a user
  1097       preferences item "show_comments" to set if the default view shows them or not.
  1098     * The wiki parser can be used with css classes now:
  1099       {{{#!wiki comment
  1100       This will render output within a div with class "comment".
  1101       You can use any wiki markup as usual.
  1102       }}}
  1103       You can also combine multiple css classes like this:
  1104       {{{#!wiki red/dotted/comment
  1105       This will render a red background, dotted border comment section.
  1106       }}}
  1107       The same thing will work for any other css classes you have.
  1108       If the css classes contain the word "comment", they will trigger some
  1109       special feature, see next item:
  1110     * Wiki nested parser/pre sections work now, using this syntax:
  1111       a) just use more curly braces if you have 3 closing in your content:
  1112          {{{{
  1113          }}} <- does not terminate the section!
  1114          }}}}
  1115       b) use {{{ + some magic string:
  1116          {{{somemagicstring
  1117          }}} <- does not terminate the section!
  1118          somemagicstring}}}
  1119       c) {{{whatever#!python
  1120          # py code
  1121          whatever}}}
  1122       Pitfall: stuff like below does not work as it did in 1.5:
  1123          {{{aaa
  1124          bbb}}}
  1125       Solution:
  1126          {{{
  1127          aaa
  1128          bbb
  1129          }}}
  1130     * Added support for ircs: URLs (secure IRC).
  1131     * New text/creole parser that allows you to use WikiCreole 1.0 markup,
  1132       use #format creole.
  1133     * HTML parser (called "html") that allows you to use HTML on the page.
  1134       Thanks to the trac team for the nice code.
  1135     * Added the diff parser from ParserMarket, thanks to Emilio Lopes, Fabien
  1136       Ninoles and Juergen Hermann.
  1138   XMLRPC: --------------------------------------------------------------------
  1139     * actions_excluded now defaults to ['xmlrpc'] - this kind of disables the
  1140       built-in wiki xmlrpc server code (not completely: it will just answer
  1141       with a Fault instance for any request). If you want to use xmlrpc v1 or
  1142       v2, you have to remove 'xmlrpc' from the actions_excluded list (for
  1143       example if you want to use wikisync, mailimport or any other feature
  1144       using xmlrpc). If you enable xmlrpc, it will be possible that someone
  1145       changes your wiki content by using xmlrpc (it will of course honour ACLs).
  1146     * New XMLRPC methods (see doc strings for details):
  1147       * getMoinVersion
  1148       * system.multicall -- multicall support
  1149       * Authentication System: getAuthToken/appyAuthToken
  1150       * getDiff -- method to get binary diffs
  1151       * mergeDiff -- method to local changes remotely
  1152       * interwikiName -- method to get the IWID and the interwiki moniker
  1153       * getAllPagesEx -- method to get the pagelist in a special way (revnos,
  1154         no system pages etc.)
  1155       * getAuthToken -- make and authentication token by supplying username/password
  1156       * applyAuthToken -- set request.user for following xmlrpc calls (within the
  1157                           same multicall)
  1158       * getUserProfile -- method to get user profile data for request.user
  1159     * Added XMLRPC methods for attachment handling. Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  1160     * XMLRPC putPage method adjusted to new AuthToken, config vars 
  1161       xmlrpc_putpage_enabled and xmlrpc_putpage_trusted_only removed.
  1163   Scripts / Commandline interface: -------------------------------------------
  1164     * moin export dump now better conforms to the theme guidelines.
  1165     * Added a --dump-user option to the moin export dump command.
  1166       Thanks to Oliver O'Halloran.
  1168   Security / Auth / AntiSpam / etc.: -----------------------------------------
  1169     * Hierarchical ACLs are now supported, i.e. pages inheriting permissions
  1170       from higher-level pages. See HelpOnAccessControlLists.
  1171     * If you have "#acl" (without the quotes) on a page, this means now:
  1172       "this page has own (empty) ACLs, so do not use acl_rights_default here"
  1173       Please note that this is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from having no ACL line at
  1174       all on the page (acl_rights_default is used in that case).
  1175     * Antispam master url is now configurable via cfg.antispam_master_url.
  1176       The default is to fetch the antispam patterns from MoinMaster wiki.
  1177     * Antispam now checks the edit comments against BadContent also.
  1178     * TextCHAs (text-form CAPTCHAs).
  1179       Due to increasingly annoying wiki spammers, we added the option to use
  1180       TextCHAs (for page save (not for preview!), for attachment upload, for
  1181       user creation (not for profile save)).
  1182       This function is disabled by default. If you run a wiki that is editable
  1183       by anonymous or non-approved users from the internet (i.e. All: or Known:
  1184       in ACL terms), you should enable it in your wiki config by:
  1185       textchas = { # DO NOT USE EXACTLY THESE QUESTIONS!!!
  1186           'en': {
  1187               u'H2O is ...': u'water', # bad: too common
  1188               u'2 apples and three bananas makes how many fruits?': ur'(five|5)', # good
  1189               u'2 apples and three pigs makes how many fruits?': ur'(two|2)', # good
  1190               u'2+3': ur'5', # bad: computable
  1191               u'
  1192           },
  1193           'de': { # for german users
  1194               u'H2O ist ...': u'wasser',
  1195           },
  1196       }
  1197       This means that english users will get some random question from the 'en'
  1198       set, german users will get some from the 'de' set. If there is no 'de'
  1199       set configured, moin will fallback to language_default and then to 'en',
  1200       so make sure that you at least have a 'en' set configured (or whatever
  1201       you have set as language_default).
  1202       You need to use unicode for the questions and answers (see that u"...").
  1203       For the answer, you need to give a regular expression:
  1204       * In the easiest case, this is just some word or sentence (first en
  1205         example). It will be matched in a case-insensitive way.
  1206       * For more complex stuff, you can use the power of regular expressions,
  1207         e.g. if multiple answers are correct (second en example). Any answer
  1208         matching the regular expression will be considered as correct, any
  1209         non-matching answer will be considered as incorrect.
  1211       Tipps for making it hard to break for the spammers and easy for the users:
  1212       * Use site-specific (not too common) questions.
  1213       * Don't use too hard questions (annoys legitimate users).
  1214       * Don't use computable questions.
  1215       * Don't reuse textchas from other sites.
  1217       textchas_disabled_group = None # (default)
  1218       Set this to some group name and noone in this group will get textchas.
  1219       E.g.: textchas_disabled_group = u'NoTextChasGroup'
  1221     * The login page gives now the possibility to recover a lost password, thanks to 
  1222       Oliver Siemoneit. This is especially useful for wikis where access to user 
  1223       preferences is restricted by acl.
  1224     * Session handling for logged-in users and (not by default due to expiry
  1225       problems) anonymous users.
  1226     * Updated the ldap_login code from 1.5 branch, supports TLS now.
  1227       See MoinMoin/config/ for supported configuration options
  1228       and their defaults (and please just change what you need to change,
  1229       in your wikiconfig).
  1230     * Interwiki auth: You need to define cfg.trusted_wikis and
  1231        cfg.user_autocreate to use it. Logging in works by entering:
  1232       Name: RemoteWikiName RemoteUserName
  1233       Password: remotepass
  1234       Then moin contacts RemoteWikiName after looking it up in the interwiki
  1235       map and tries to authenticate there using RemoteUserName and remotepass.
  1236       If it succeeds, the remote wiki will return the remote user profile items
  1237       and your local moin will autocreate an account with these values.
  1239   Server / Network / Logging: ------------------------------------------------
  1240     * The standalone server script moved to the toplevel directory. This makes
  1241       it possible to directly start without additional configuration
  1242       to run a MoinMoin DesktopEdition like wiki setup.
  1243       Be careful: DesktopEdition uses relaxed security settings only suitable
  1244       for personal and local use.
  1245     * Added TLS/SSL support to the standalone server. Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  1246       To use TLS/SSL support you must also install the TLSLite library
  1247       ( Version 0.3.8 was used for development and
  1248       testing.
  1250     * cfg.log_reverse_dns_lookups [default: True] - you can set this to False
  1251       if rev. dns lookups are broken in your network (leading to long delays
  1252       on page saves). With False, edit-log will only contain IP, not hostname.
  1253     * Added support for "304 not modified" response header for AttachFile get
  1254       and rss_rc actions - faster, less traffic, less load.
  1256     * Added logging framework, using stdlib's "logging" module. Just do
  1257       import logging ; logging.debug("your text"). Depending on configuration
  1258       in the server Config class, your stuff will be written to screen (stderr),
  1259       to a moin logfile, to apache's error.log, etc.:
  1260       logPath = None # 'moin.log'
  1261       loglevel_file = None # logging.DEBUG/INFO/WARNING/ERROR/CRITICAL
  1262       loglevel_stderr = None # logging.DEBUG/INFO/WARNING/ERROR/CRITICAL
  1263       NOTE: this is NOT in wikiconfig, but e.g. in moin.cgi or or ...
  1265     * Added some experimental and disabled code, that uses x-forwarded-for
  1266       header (if present) to get the right "outside" IP before a request
  1267       enters our chain of trusted (reverse) proxies.
  1268       This code has the problem that we can't configure it in wikiconfig, so
  1269       if you want to use it / test it, you have to edit the moin code:
  1270       MoinMoin/request/ - edit proxies_trusted (near the top).
  1271       We will try to make this easier to configure, but there was no time left
  1272       before 1.6.0 release for doing bigger code refactorings needed for that.
  1274   Mail: ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  1275     * You can send email to the wiki now (requires xmlrpc), see:
  1276       FeatureRequests/WikiEmailIntegration, HelpOnConfiguration/EmailSupport
  1278     * Mail notifications contain a link to the diff action so the user
  1279       can see the coloured difference more easily. Thanks to Tobias Polzin.
  1281   Other changes: =============================================================
  1282     * HINT: please copy a new version of your server script from the wiki/server/
  1283       directory and edit it to match your setup.
  1284     * HINT: instead of "from MoinMoin.multiconfig import DefaultConfig" you
  1285       need to use "from MoinMoin.config.multiconfig import DefaultConfig" now.
  1286       You need to change this in your or file.
  1287       See MoinMoin/ for an alternative way if you can't do that.
  1288     * HINT: you need to change some imports (if you have them in your config):
  1289       Old: from MoinMoin.util.antispam import SecurityPolicy
  1290       New: from import SecurityPolicy
  1291       Old: from MoinMoin.util.autoadmin import SecurityPolicy
  1292       New: from import SecurityPolicy
  1293     * HINT: you need to change your auth stuff, the new way is:
  1294       from MoinMoin.auth import moin_login, moin_session
  1295       from MoinMoin.auth.http import http
  1296       auth = [http, moin_login, moin_session]
  1297       Do it in a similar way for other auth methods.
  1298     * HINT: you need to change your url_prefix setting in 2 ways:
  1299       1. The setting is now called url_prefix_static (to make it more clear
  1300          that we mean the static stuff, not the wiki script url).
  1301       2. The strongly recommended (and default) value of it is '/moin_static160'
  1302          for moin version 1.6.0 (and will be ...161 for moin 1.6.1). It is
  1303          possible and recommended to use a very long cache lifetime for static
  1304          stuff now (Expires: access plus 1 year), because we require to change
  1305          the URL of static stuff when the static stuff changes (e.g. on a
  1306          version upgrade of moin) to avoid problems with stale cache content.
  1307          Your moin will be faster with lower load and traffic because of this.
  1308          For standalone server, we use 1 year expiry for static stuff now.
  1309          For Apache, Lighttpd and other "external" servers, you have to care
  1310          for configuring them to use a long expiry and change url_prefix_static
  1311          related configuration on upgrade.
  1312       HINT: if you run standalone or Twisted server, the easiest way to get a
  1313             working configuration (with server configuration matching wiki
  1314             configuration) is to NOT set url_prefix_static at all. Moin will
  1315             use matching configuration defaults in this case.
  1316     * url_prefix_action ['action'] was introduced for lowering load and traffic
  1317       caused by searchengine crawlers. Up to now, crawlers where causing a high
  1318       load in internet moin wikis because they tried to get about everything,
  1319       including all actions linked from the user interface.
  1320       Known crawlers only get 403 for most actions, but nevertheless they first
  1321       tried. There was no means keeping them away from actions due to the rather
  1322       braindead robots.txt standard. You can only disallow pathes there, but
  1323       moin's actions were querystring based, not path based (this would need
  1324       regex support in robots.txt, but there is no such thing).
  1325       This changed now. Moin is able to generate action URLs you can handle in
  1326       robots.txt, like /action/info/PageName?action=info. So if you don't want
  1327       bots triggering actions, just disallow /action/ there. Keep in mind that
  1328       attachments are handled by /action/AttachFile, so if you want attached
  1329       files and pictures indexed by search engine, don't disallow
  1330       /action/AttachFile/ in your robots.txt. In order to use this feature,
  1331       set url_prefix_action in your wikiconfig to e.g. "action".
  1332     * We use (again) the same browser compatibility check as FCKeditor uses
  1333       internally, too. So if GUI editor invocation is broken due to browser
  1334       compatibility issues or a wrong browser version check, please file a bug
  1335       at FCKeditor development or browser development.
  1336     * HINT: We removed Lupy based indexed search code. If you were brave enough
  1337       to use cfg.lupy_search, you maybe want to try cfg.xapian_search instead.
  1339   Developer notes: ===========================================================
  1340     * We moved the IE hacks to theme/css/msie.css that gets included after all
  1341       other css files (but before the user css file) using a conditional
  1342       comment with "if IE", so it gets only loaded for MSIE (no matter which
  1343       version). The file has some standard css inside (evaluated on all MSIE
  1344       versions) and some * html hacks that only IE < 7 will read.
  1345       HINT: if you use custom themes, you want to update them in the same way.
  1346     * autofilters for databrowser widget. Thanks to Johannes Berg for the patch.
  1347     * changed formatter.attachment_link call (it is now more flexible,
  1348       because you can render the stuff between link start and link end yourself)
  1349     * Page.url() does not escape any more. You have to use wikiutil.escape()
  1350       yourself if you want to write the URL to HTML and it contains e.g. &.
  1351     * The testing wikiconfig moved to tests/, the testing wiki
  1352       is now created in tests/wiki/...
  1353     * HINT: Killed "processors" (finally), formatter method changed to:
  1354       formatter.parser(parsername, lines)
  1355     * Refactored some actions to use ActionBase base class.
  1356     * Moved "test" action from wikiaction to MoinMoin/action/
  1357       (and use ActionBase).
  1358     * Moved MoinMoin/ to MoinMoin/config/
  1359     * Moved MoinMoin/ to MoinMoin/config/
  1360     * Moved "SystemInfo" macro from wikimacro to MoinMoin/macro/.
  1361     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/action/
  1362     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/macro/
  1363     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/xmlrpc/
  1364     * Moved stuff to action/ (only used from there).
  1365     * Moved formatter/ to formatter/ (FormatterBase).
  1366     * Moved util/ to parser/
  1367     * Moved / splitted into MoinMoin/request/*.
  1368       Most stuff will be broken, please help fixing it (usually some imports
  1369       will be missing and the adaptor script will need a change maybe):
  1370       Tested successfully: CGI, CLI, STANDALONE, FCGI, TWISTED
  1371     * Moved to security/
  1372     * Moved to security/
  1373     * Moved logfile/ to logfile/
  1374     * Moved to mail/
  1375     * Moved util/ to mail/
  1376     * Moved to auth/
  1377       Moved util/ to auth/
  1378       teared auth code into single modules under auth/* - moin_session handling
  1379       and the builting moin_login method are in auth/
  1380     * Added wikiutil.MimeType class (works internally with sanitized mime
  1381       types because the official ones suck).
  1382     * Renamed parsers to module names representing sane mimetypes, e.g.:
  1383 -> parser.text_moin_wiki
  1384     * Added thread_monitor debugging aid. It can be activated using:
  1385       from MoinMoin.util import thread_monitor; thread_monitor.activate_hook()
  1386       and then triggered by requesting URL ...?action=thread_monitor - please
  1387       be aware that monitoring threads has a big performance impact on its own,
  1388       so you only want to temporarily enable this for debugging.
  1389       By default, it dumps its output to the data_dir as tm_<timestamp>.log,
  1390       you can change this at bottom of action/ if you want to
  1391       see output in your browser.
  1392     * Introduced scope parameter to CacheEntry() - if you specify 'farm', it
  1393       will cache into a common directory for all wikis in the same farm, if you
  1394       specify 'wiki', it will use a cache directory per wiki and if you specify
  1395       'item', it will use a cache directory per item (== per page).
  1396       Creating a CacheEntry without explicit scope is DEPRECATED.
  1397     * Smileys moved from MoinMoin.config to MoinMoin.theme.
  1398     * Removed all _ magic in URLs and filenames.
  1399     * request.action now has the action requested, default: 'show'.
  1400     * Cleaned up duplicated http_headers code and DEPRECATED this function
  1401       call (it was sometimes confused with setHttpHeaders call) - it will
  1402       vanish with moin 1.7, so please fix your custom plugins!
  1403       The replacement is:
  1404           request.emit_http_headers(more_headers=[])
  1405       This call pre-processes the headers list (encoding from unicode, making
  1406       sure that there is exactly ONE content-type header, etc.) and then
  1407       calls a server specific helper _emit_http_headers to emit it.
  1408       Tested successfully: CGI, STANDALONE, FCGI, TWISTED
  1409     * setResponseCode request method DEPRECATED (it only worked for Twisted
  1410       anyway), just use emit_http_headers and include a Status: XXX header.
  1411       Method will vanish with moin 1.7.
  1412     * cfg.url_prefix is DEPRECATED, please use cfg.url_prefix_static.
  1413     * d['title_link'] is not supported any more. You can easily make that link
  1414       on your own in your theme, see example in MoinMoin/theme/,
  1415       function "title".
  1416     * There is a new Page method called Page.get_raw_body_str that returns
  1417       the encoded page body. This is useful if you just deal with byte data
  1418       (e.g. while generating binary diffs).
  1419     * The TagStore/PickleTagStore system is used to store the syncronisation tags.
  1420     * XMLRPC functions may return Fault instances from now on
  1421     * Moin got multicall support, including a module that makes it usable on the
  1422       client-side without requiring Python 2.4
  1423     * Added no_magic to text_html formatter to disable tag autoclosing.
  1424     * MOIN_DEBUG can be set in the environment to let MoinMoin ignore exceptions
  1425       that would lead to a traceback in the browser. Thanks to Raphael Bossek.
  1426     * There is a new MoinMoin.Page.ItemCache class now with automatic cache
  1427       invalidation based on global edit-log. We currently use it to cache page
  1428       acls, speedup Page.get_rev and reading the page local edit-log.
  1429     * Added wikiutil.renderText parse and format raw wiki markup with all page elements.
  1430     * The user file format has changed, old files will be read correctly but
  1431       will silently be upgraded to the new format so old versions will not
  1432       read the new files correctly (this only affects 'subscribed_pages' and
  1433       'quicklinks' which will be lost when downgrading.)
  1436 Version 1.5.8:
  1437   New features:
  1438     * Added timing.log to help performance debugging. Use cfg.log_timing = True
  1439       to update <data_dir>/timing.log (default is False, meaning no logging).
  1441       Example log entries:
  1444       Timestamp       PID   Timing Flag action     URL
  1445       -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  1446       20070512 184401 22690 vvv         None
  1447       20070512 184401 22690 0.267s    - show
  1449       Timestamp: YYYYMMDD HHMMSS (UTC)
  1450       PID: the process ID of the moin process
  1451       Timing: when action starts, it will be "vvv"
  1452               when it ends, it logs the total time it needed for execution
  1453       Flag (some are only logged at end of action):
  1454       +   Page exists
  1455       -   Page does not exist
  1456       B   user agent was recognized as bot / spider
  1457       !x! Action took rather long (the higher the x, the longer it took - this
  1458           makes it easy to grep for problematic stuff).
  1459       Action: action name (None is when no action was specified, moin assumes
  1460               "show" for that case)
  1461       URL: the requested URL
  1463       For more information about tuning your moin setup, see:
  1465     * Added support for ircs, webcal, xmpp, ed2k and rootz protocols - we
  1466       moved all protocols to config.url_schemas, so this is not empty any more.
  1467       It is possible to use these protocols now on wiki pages and in the
  1468       navi_bar. We just generate the URLs, it is up to your browser what it
  1469       does when clicking on those links.
  1470     * cfg.traceback_show (default: 1) can be used to disable showing tracebacks.
  1471       cfg.traceback_log_dir (default: None) can be used to set a directory
  1472       that is used to dump traceback files to. Your users will get a notice to
  1473       which (random) file in that directory the traceback was been written.
  1474       NOTE: while you can feel free to set traceback_show = 0 and
  1475       traceback_log_dir = None, we will also feel free to reject bug reports
  1476       when you (or your site's users) don't give us enough information (like a
  1477       traceback file) to debug the problem. If you set traceback_show = 0,
  1478       we recommend pointing traceback_log_dir to a directory with reasonable
  1479       free space and putting a page onto your wiki that describes who has to
  1480       get contacted (usually the wiki server admin) in case a traceback happens.
  1481       The admin can then locate the traceback file and submit it to moin
  1482       development, if the bug is not already known (see MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs).
  1483       Of course we will also need all the other details of a bug report, not
  1484       only the traceback file.
  1486   Other changes:
  1487     * Updated spider agents list.
  1488     * Reduce bot/spider cpu usage for SystemInfo, OrphanedPages, WantedPages,
  1489       PageHits, PageSize, WordIndex macros (we just return nothing for bots).
  1491   Bugfixes:
  1492     * XSS fixes, see (item 1 and 2).
  1493     * ACL security fixes:
  1494       * MonthCalendar respects ACLs of day pages now.
  1495       * Check the ACL for the rst markup include directive.
  1496     * Fixed cleaning of edit comments (control chars in there could damage
  1497       edit-log).
  1498     * Fixed in-process caching of antispam patterns (didn't update the cache
  1499       for multi-process, persistent servers).
  1500     * Correct encoding/decoding for surge-log data, fixes leftover
  1501       surge-logXXXXXXX.tmp files in data/cache/surgeprotect.
  1502     * Fixed mode of cache files (mkstemp creates them with 0600 mode).
  1503     * Symbolic entities with numbers (like &sup2;) did not work, fixed.
  1504     * We open data/error.log earlier now and we also use it for FastCGI.
  1505     * Fixed unicode cfg.page_group_regex.
  1506     * Fixed moin.spec to use english date format.
  1507     * GUI converter: fixed conversion of relative wiki links.
  1508     * Fixed NewPage macro button label to not be formatted as wiki text.
  1510 Version 1.5.7:
  1511   New features:
  1512     * added url_prefix_local which is used for stuff that must be loaded from
  1513       same site as the wiki engine (e.g. FCKeditor GUI editor applet), while
  1514       url_prefix can be a remote server serving the static files (css/img).
  1515       If not set (or set to None), url_prefix_local will default to the value
  1516       of url_prefix.
  1517     * We save some CPU and disk I/O by having EditTemplates and LikePages macro
  1518       (both used on MissingPage) check whether the requesting entity was
  1519       identified as a spider (e.g. search engine bot) and do nothing in that
  1520       case. Normal users won't see any difference.
  1521     * For AttachFile, you can now choose to overwrite existing files of same
  1522       name (nice for updating files).
  1524   Bugfixes:
  1525     * XSS Fixes:
  1526       * fixed unescaped page info display.
  1527       * fixed unescaped page name display in AttachFile, RenamePage and
  1528         LocalSiteMap actions
  1529     * WantedPages listed existing pages that are not readable for the user,
  1530       but are linked from pages that ARE readable for the user (so this is NOT
  1531       a privacy/security issue). We now don't list those pages any more as it
  1532       is pointless/confusing, the user can't read or edit there anyway.
  1533     * MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsUsesNonExistingIncludeLinks
  1534     * MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/ActionsExcludedTriggerError
  1535     * GUI editor/converter:
  1536       * ignore <col>/<colgroup>/<meta> elements
  1537       * support <a> within blockquote
  1538     * Remove generated=... attribute from pagelink html output (this attr is
  1539       for internal use only). w3c validator is now happier again.
  1540     * Fixed css class "userpref" (not: "userprefs") of the Login form.
  1541     * Fixed the version number check in the xslt parser for 4suite >= 1.0.
  1542     * We reset the umask to the wanted value every request. This should fix
  1543       wrong file modes when used with Twisted (twistd uses a hardcoded 0077
  1544       umask in daemonize()).
  1545     * Avoid trouble when saving pages with antispam function when MoinMaster
  1546       wiki is having troubles (catch xmlrpc Fault).
  1548   Other changes:
  1549     * Standalone server does not do reverse DNS lookups any more (this is a
  1550       standard feature of BaseHTTPServer stdlib module, but we override this
  1551       now and just print the IP).
  1552     * We moved the IE hacks to theme/css/msie.css that gets included after all
  1553       other css files (but before the user css file) using a conditional
  1554       comment with "if IE", so it gets only loaded for MSIE (no matter which
  1555       version). The file has some standard css inside (evaluated on all MSIE
  1556       versions) and some * html hacks that only IE < 7 will read.
  1557       HINT: if you use custom themes, you want to update them in the same way.
  1558     * Improved ldap auth:
  1559       * cfg.ldap_name_attribute was removed because of new cfg.ldap_filter.
  1560         If you had ldap_name_attribute = 'sAMAccountName' before, just use
  1561         ldap_filter = '(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)' now.
  1562       * New cfg.ldap_filter used for the ldap filter string used in the ldap
  1563         search instead of the rather limited, partly hardcoded filter we used
  1564         before. This is much more flexible:
  1565         ldap_filter = '(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)'
  1566         You can also do more complex filtering expressions like:
  1567         '(&(cn=%(username)s)(memberOf=CN=WikiUsers,OU=Groups,DC=example,DC=org))'
  1568       * Added some processing to filter out result entries with dn == None.
  1569       * We set REFERRALS option to 0 before initializing the ldap server
  1570         connection (this seems to be needed for Active Directory servers).
  1571       * We support self-signed ssl certs for ldaps - completely untested.
  1572       * New cfg.ldap_surname_attribute (usually 'sn'), was hardcoded before.
  1573       * New cfg.ldap_givenname_attribute (usually 'givenName'), hardcoded before.
  1574       * New cfg.ldap_aliasname_attribute (usually 'displayName') - if this
  1575         attribute is not there or empty (in the results of the ldap lookup for
  1576         the user), we just make up the aliasname from surname and givenname
  1577         attribute.
  1578       * We only request the attributes we need from ldap (was: all attrs).
  1579       * We deny user login (and break out of auth chain) for the following cases:
  1580         * if a user is not found by ldap lookup
  1581         * if we find more than one matching entry
  1582         * if the password is empty or incorrect
  1583         * if some exception happens
  1584       * Please note that there is an updated ldap sample config in directory
  1585         wiki/config/more_samples/.
  1586       * Added experimental LDAP SSL/TLS support (untested, please help testing),
  1587         see also the sample config.
  1588     * Work around a IE7 rendering problem with long pages getting more and
  1589       more narrow. We just applied the same "fix" as we used for IE6, using
  1590       "display: none" for span.anchor for IE browsers.
  1591     * RSS feed related:
  1592       * We used to emit a <link> tag for the action=rss_rc RSS feed on any
  1593         page. This was changed, we now emit that link only on RecentChanges and
  1594         the current user's language translation of RecentChanges.
  1595         This was changed because Google Toolbar requests the RSS feed linked
  1596         by such a link tag every time it sees one. Thus, if you used the wiki
  1597         normally, it requested the RSS feed every few seconds and caused
  1598         problems due to surge protection kicking in because of that.
  1599       * HINT for custom theme users: if your theme code calls
  1600         rsslink(), then you need to change that to rsslink(d) for 1.5.7+.
  1603 Version 1.5.6:
  1604   A general security notice:
  1605       Check your Python version, there was a buffer overflow issue in Python
  1606       recently! Details:
  1608   Bugfixes:
  1609     * Fix AttributeError traceback with Standalone server (if_modified_since)
  1610     * Fix AttachFile "304 not modified" and redirect status code for Twisted
  1611     * http auth: we now decode username and password to unicode (using
  1612       config.charset == utf-8). Same for SSL client cert auth and CN.
  1613     * Avoid infinite recursion in Page.parsePageLinks.
  1614     * Fixed standalone server failing to shutdown if interface == "".
  1615     * Now MoinMoin does not think anymore that every page links to various user
  1616       homepages.
  1617     * Made the irssi parser more tolerant (Thanks to "TheAnarcat").
  1618     * Now multiple formatters can be used per request, the send_page code was
  1619       not reentrant to this regard. Fixes "empty" search results.
  1620     * Fixed problem with "=" in ImageLink macro links.
  1621     * Not a moin bug, but a silly stdlib os.tempnam function made trouble to
  1622       some people because it lets you override the path given in the code
  1623       by setting the environment variable TMP(DIR). We now use a different
  1624       function to avoid renaming trouble when TMP(DIR) points to a different
  1625       file system.
  1626     * Fixed antispam update on every save (Thanks to "TheAnarcat").
  1627     * GUI converter: don't throw away rowclass for tables.
  1628     * GUI editor formatter: allow height for table cells.
  1629     * GUI editor formatter: comment texts are output using the formatter now. 
  1631   New features:
  1632     * Mail notifications contain a link to the diff action so the user
  1633       can see the coloured difference more easily. Thanks to Tobias Polzin.
  1634     * FeatureRequests/MoveAttachments - you can move attachments from one
  1635       page to another (and also rename the attachment at the same time).
  1636       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  1637     * Added support for linking to attachment: and inline: URLs with ImageLink.
  1638     * Added UNIX socket support for FastCGI, just set the port to some (socket)
  1639       filename. Details see: MoinMoin:FeatureRequests/FastCgiUnixSocket
  1640     * [[Attachlist(pagename,mimetype)]] lists attachments of pagename (default:
  1641       current page) with optional mimetype restriction (default: all).
  1642       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  1644   Other changes:
  1645     * Minor performance improvements (might be noticeable if you have many
  1646       custom navi_bar entries and high server load).
  1647     * Avoid usage of no-cache because it breaks attachment download on IE6.
  1648       This is a IE bug, not a moin bug.
  1649     * Added XHTML to the unsafe list.
  1650     * Changed the rst parser to be compatible to the new docutils interface
  1651       for directives.
  1652     * Updated EmbedObject macro.
  1655 Version 1.5.5a:
  1656   Bugfixes:
  1657     * fixed ticket creation to only use constant values
  1659 Version 1.5.5:
  1660   HINT: read docs/README.migration.
  1661   HINT: there was NO change in the underlay/ pages since 1.5.4.
  1662   HINT: If you experience problems with the reStructured Text (rst) parser,
  1663         please downgrade docutils to "0.4" because there were major interface
  1664         breaking API refactorings on the docutils trunk.
  1666   Bugfixes:
  1667     * GUI editor fixes:
  1668       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorModifiesInterwikiPreferred.
  1669       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TableAlignmentProbsWithGUI.
  1670     * Not a moin bug, but it severely annoyed IE users and also was less
  1671       comfortable for users of other browser: since about 1.5.4, we served
  1672       attachments with Content-Disposition: attachment - so that the user has
  1673       to save them to disk. This was to fix a possible XSS attack using attached
  1674       HTML files with Javascript inside for stealing your moin cookie or doing
  1675       other nasty things. We improved this by using different behaviour depending
  1676       on the potential danger the attached file has when served inline:
  1677       mimetypes_xss_protect = ['text/html', 'application/x-shockwave-flash', ]
  1678       This is the default value. If you know more dangerous stuff, please just
  1679       add the mimetypes there to protect your users and file a bug report
  1680       telling us what we missed.
  1681     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ReStructuredTextRelativeLinksBroken, thanks to Stefan
  1682       Merten.
  1683     * Make tickets used for some actions more safe.
  1685   New features:
  1686     * edit_ticketing [True] - we protect page save by a ticket (same stuff we
  1687       already use for DeletePage and RenamePage action).
  1688       NOTE: If you don't use your browser for editing, but some tool like
  1689             "editmoin" or "MoinMoin plugin for jEdit", you'll need an update
  1690             of them supporting the ticket.
  1691             Alternatively, you can use edit_ticketing = False setting - this
  1692             is not recommended for internet wikis as it will make spamming them
  1693             easier.
  1694     * If we detect some spammer, we kick him out by triggering surge protection
  1695       (if surge protection is not disabled).
  1697 Version 1.5.5rc1:
  1698   Bugfixes:
  1699     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/XmlRpcBrokenForFastCgi - thanks to Johannes Berg.
  1700     * Fixed gui editor converter confusing of `` and {{{}}} markup.
  1701     * Fixed emission of HTTP headers (esp. Vary: Cache-Control:).
  1702     * Fixed a bad crash that happens (on ANY page!) when you put a *Dict
  1703       page's name as a member into a *Group page.
  1704     * Fix MyPages action title to use an unformatted string.
  1705     * Fix double quoted-printable encoding in generated emails (note: this is
  1706       not a moin bug - this just works around bugs in python stdlib).
  1707     * Fix mode of drawing files (use config.umask).
  1708     * Fix trouble with /?action= urls by dropping getPageNameFromQueryString
  1709       code. 
  1710     * Fixed sre unpickle issues seen on some machines by avoiding to pickle
  1711       the regex.
  1712     * Fix Clock code, add more timers.
  1713     * Worked around FastCGI problem on Lighttpd: empty lines in the error log.
  1714     * Fix (add) locking for caching's .remove() call, small fixes to lock code.
  1715     * Print error message when --target-dir=path is missing from moin export
  1716       dump command.
  1718   New features:
  1719     * Added support for "304 not modified" response header for AttachFile get
  1720       and rss_rc actions - faster, less traffic, less load.
  1721     * Limit rss with full diffs to 5 items.
  1722     * Allow surge_action_limits = None to disable surge protection.
  1723     * moin.fcg improved - if you use FastCGI, you must use the new file:
  1724       * can self-terminate after some number of requests (default: -1, this
  1725         means "unlimited lifetime")
  1726       * the count of created threads is limited now (default: 5), you can use
  1727         1 to use non-threaded operation.
  1728       * configurable socket.listen() backlog (default: 5)
  1729     * Added indonesian i18n (id).
  1730     * Some measures against spammers trying to brute force their spam into moin.
  1731     * EmbedObject macro: added mov, mpg and midi support
  1732     * moin ... export dump --target-dir=PATH --page=PAGENAME_REGEX
  1733       You must specify --target-dir (where dump will write the html files to)
  1734       and you may specify --page and either a page name or a regex used to
  1735       match all pages you want to export. Default is to export all pages.
  1737   Other changes:
  1738     * Tuning:
  1739       * more efficient locking code on POSIX platforms, we do much less I/O
  1740         for locking now
  1741       * removed most chmod calls in favour of a single os.umask call
  1742     * Improved Python 2.5 compatibility. Note: if you think that MoinMoin
  1743       is using too much RAM, you might want to look at Python 2.5 because
  1744       of its improved memory management.
  1745     * Throw away SAVE comments longer than 200 chars (you can't enter those by
  1746       the user interface, so only spammer using automatic POSTs do them).
  1747     * Updated spider user agent list.
  1748     * BadContent and LocalBadContent now get noindex,nofollow robots header,
  1749       same as POSTs.
  1750     * Standalone opens it logfile unbuffered from now on, thanks to
  1751       Carsten Grohmann.
  1752     * Avoid trouble when request.write() data contains None, just skip it -
  1753       thanks to Juergen Hermann.
  1754     * Instead of showing a ConfigurationError, moin now emits "404 Not found"
  1755       http headers and a hint about what could be wrong. This won't fill up
  1756       your logs just because of typos and spiders still trying old URLs.
  1759 Version 1.5.4:
  1760     HINT: read docs/README.migration.
  1761 Version 1.5.4-current:
  1762     * increased maxlength of some input fields from 80 to 200
  1764 Version 1.5.current:
  1765   Developer notes:
  1766     * We switched to Mercurial SCM, see here for more infos:
  1769   Bugfixes:
  1770     * fix MonthCalendar macro for non-ASCII pagenames (thanks to Jonas Smedegaard)
  1771     * remove 'search' and 'google' from bot user agent list and add some more
  1772       specific terms
  1773     * Fix the forgotten password email login URL and also properly encode the
  1774       email body. Thanks to Robin Dunn for the patch.
  1775     * Applied a patch by Matthew Gilbert for increased compatiblity with
  1776       latest docutils.
  1779 Version 1.5.3:
  1780   New Features:
  1781     * Added CSS classes for TableOfContents macro.
  1783   Bug Fixes:
  1784     * GUI editor / GUI editor converter:
  1785       * Fixed missing GUI editor link in edit bar.
  1786       * Fixed table/row/cell style spaces.
  1787       * Changed <p> generation for macros.
  1788       * Fixed handling of subpages.
  1789       * Fixed processing of complex list elements (thanks to Craig Markwardt).
  1790       * Fixed processing of html \n (thanks to Craig Markwardt).
  1791       * Fixed joining of comment lines with text below them.
  1792       * Fixed table height attribute crash.
  1793     * Fixed sslclientcert auth.
  1794     * Added some missing files to i18n processing, translatable strings more
  1795       complete now.
  1796     * Change <p> generation from self-closing (<p />) to auto-closing (only
  1797       emit <p>, let browser find place for </p>).
  1798     * Fix eating of newline before tables.
  1799     * Fixed incorrect login hint for not logged-in users trying a disallowed
  1800       action.
  1801     * Fixed nasty missing or double </a> formatter bug (mostly happening when
  1802       user has enabled questionmarks for nonexisting pages).
  1804   Other Changes:
  1805     * We catch and ignore html to wiki conversion errors in case of hitting
  1806       the cancel button, so you can get out of the error screen.
  1808 Version 1.5.3-rc2:
  1809   New Features:
  1810     * Modified SystemInfo macro to give human readable units and disk usage
  1811     * cfg.editor_quickhelp makes the quick help below the editor configurable
  1812       (at least as far as the default_markup is concerned). If set to None,
  1813       it doesn't display any quickhelp. Thanks to Seth Falcon for the patch.
  1815   Bugfixes:
  1816     * Fixed double class attribute for nonexistent links
  1817     * Fixed double </a> with qm_noexist option
  1818     * Fixed table xxx="yyy" style attribute parsing
  1819     * If not (editor_force and editor_default == 'text') then display GUI mode
  1820       switch button (this is only a partial fix, but enough to deny the GUI
  1821       mode to your users completely)
  1822     * Fixed XSS issue which could lead to cookie theft etc.
  1823     * Fixed definition list "same level" indenting.
  1824     * Fixed pagename in log for PackagePages action.
  1825     * Made <p> self-closing and line-anchors more well-behaved, thanks to
  1826       Martin Wilck for the patch. I didn't apply the <ol> patch, because this
  1827       is no real problem, just a problem of a bad standard.
  1828     * Fixed gui editor *bgcolor crash.
  1829     * Support/Fix tableclass attr with gui editor.
  1831   Other changes:
  1832     * Moved back UserPreferences action link from menu to top of page (renaming
  1833       it to "Preferences"), added "Cancel" button to make it possible to return
  1834       to the previous page without saving preferences.
  1835     * Removed formatter.url "attrs" keyword arg that took premade html, we use
  1836       separate kw args per attribute now.
  1837     * Moved broken tests to MoinMoin/_tests/broken (= disabling them).
  1838       All "active" tests run ok now.
  1839       If you want to compare, I included the output of this test run:
  1840       $ make test >tests/make_test.out
  1843 Version 1.5.3-rc1:
  1845   New features:
  1846     * HINT: please read README.migration
  1847     * Login and Logout are actions now, therefore you stay on the page where
  1848       you were before.
  1849     * UserPreferences is also an action now and moved from top border (in
  1850       modern theme) to the "more actions" dropdown menu. You also stay on the
  1851       same page.
  1852     * There is also a [[Login]] macro now. You can put it on any page you want
  1853       and if the user is not logged in, it renders the login form. If the user
  1854       is logged in, it doesn't render anything.
  1855     * We check cfg.superuser to be a list of user names (as documented) and
  1856       deny superuser access if it is not. This avoids security issues by
  1857       wrong configuration.
  1858     * auth methods changed:
  1859       HINT: if you wrote own auth methods, please change them as you see in
  1860             MoinMoin/ and test them again before relying on them.
  1861       * now get a user_obj kw argument that is either a user object returned
  1862         from a previous auth method or None (if no user has been made up yet).
  1863         The auth method should either return a user object (if it has
  1864         determined one) or what it got as user_obj (being "passive") or None
  1865         (if it wants to "veto" some user even if a previous method already has
  1866         made up some user object).
  1867       * return value of continue_flag is now True in most cases (except if
  1868         it wants to "veto" and abort).
  1869       * moin_cookie auth method now logs out a user by deleting the cookie and
  1870         setting user_obj.valid = 0. This makes it possible to still get the
  1871         user's name in subsequent auth method calls within the same request.
  1872       * added ldap_login and smb_mount auth methods, see MoinMoin/ and
  1873         wiki/config/more_samples/
  1874     * MonthCalendar now takes an additional argument for specifying a template
  1875       to use to directly invoke the page editor when clicking on non-existing
  1876       day pages.
  1877     * Added ImageLink macro. Thanks to Jeff Kunce, Marcin Zalewski, Reimar
  1878       Bauer and Chong-Dae Park for working on it.
  1879     * Lupy stuff (still experimental, partly broken and disabled by default):
  1880       * Attachment search using lupy (lupy_search = 1 in your config)
  1881         Title search will also search attachment filenames.
  1882         Full text search will also search attachment contents.
  1883       * Indexing filter plugins, see MoinMoin:FiltersForIndexing
  1884         Some filters depend on external converters that might not be available
  1885         for any platform (see Depends: line in filter plugin).
  1886         Feel free to contribute more filter plugins, especially if you wrote
  1887         some nice platform independant filter in Python for some popular file
  1888         format! Filters implemented so far (depending on):
  1889         MS Word, RTF, MS Excel (antiword, catdoc)
  1890         PDF (pdftotext)
  1891 XML based data formats (-)
  1892         XML, HTML (-)
  1893         text/* (-)
  1894         JPEG's EXIF data (-)
  1895         Binary generic (-)
  1896       * As you might know, Lupy is "retired" (that means it isn't developped
  1897         by its authors any more). We are currently evaluating Xapian as new
  1898         indexing search engine in moin.
  1899         If we succeed, we will replace Lupy stuff by some Xapian interface
  1900         code in moin.
  1901         But: the filters will likely stay, as we also need them with Xapian.
  1903     * A new MoinMoin script interface was introduced:
  1905       Syntax: moin [options] <cmdmodule> <cmdname> [options]
  1907       For example:
  1908       moin --config-dir=/my/cfgdir \
  1909            export dump --page=WikiSandBox
  1911       This will call the "moin" script, which will use the --config-dir and
  1912       --wiki-url options to initialize, then it will go to MoinMoin.script
  1913       module, import the export.dump module from there and run it, providing
  1914       the additional --page value to it.
  1916       The old scripts that have not been migrated to this new interface can
  1917       still be found in MoinMoin/script/old/ - including the old migration
  1918       scripts.
  1919     * moin ... account create --name=JoeDoe
  1920     * moin ... account disable --name=JoeDoe
  1921     * moin ... acount check     <-- this is what usercheck script was before
  1922     * moin ... maint cleancache <-- this is what cachecleaner script was
  1923     * moin ... maint cleanpage  <-- this is what pagescleaner script was
  1925   Bugfixes:
  1926     * cookie_lifetime didn't work comfortable for low values. The cookie was
  1927       created once on login and never updated afterwards. So you got logged
  1928       out cookie_lifetime hours later, no matter whether you were active at
  1929       that time or not. This has been changed, we update the cookie expiry now
  1930       on every request, so it will expire cookie_lifetime after your last
  1931       request (not after login).
  1932     * Fixed logout problems when using cfg.cookie_path.
  1933     * Fixed cookie_path for root url wikis.
  1934     * Lupy search now behaves a bit less funky. Still no guarantees...
  1935     * We lowered the twisted server timeout to 2 minutes now (was: 10) because
  1936       it just used up too many files (open TCP connections until it timeouts)
  1937       on our farm.
  1938     * The algorithm used for processing the farmconfig.wikis list was changed
  1939       to work for big farms (>= 50 wikis), too. This works around the python
  1940       "re" module limitation of having a maximum of 100 named groups in a RE.
  1941     * Fixed a TypeError which occurred for formatters that dislike None values.
  1942       (cf.
  1943     * Fixed GUI editor converter error for https:... image URLs.
  1944     * ThemeBase (use by modern/rightsidebar): removed duplicate AttachFile from
  1945       actions menu (we already have it in editbar).
  1946     * Speedup group/dicts scanning for persistent servers.
  1947     * Implemented HEAD requests for standalone server, this should fix some of
  1948       the strange effects happening when using "Save as" on attachments.
  1949     * Not a moin bug, but rather a workaround for non-standard non-ASCII DNS
  1950       hostnames: we just use the IP instead of crashing now.
  1951     * Spurious cyclic usage error in i18n fixed.
  1952     * Fixed antispam for python 2.5a xmlrpclib.
  1953     * I18n for linenumber toggle in listings.
  1954     * All action menu entries are translatable now.
  1956   Other:
  1957     * Added css classes for the rst admonitions. Thanks to TiagoMacambira!
  1959 Version 1.5.2:
  1961   New features:
  1962     * Added FullSearchCached macro which is statically cached.
  1963       Use it if you do not depend on fresh search results but prefer raw speed.
  1964     * Added surge protection, see HelpOnConfiguration/SurgeProtection.
  1965     * Allow hex and symbolic entities.
  1966     * If there is a user with empty password, we just generate a random one
  1967       when he requests it getting sent by mail. Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  1968     * The superuser now can switch to another user using UserPreferences -
  1969       nice to help your users when they forgot their password or need other
  1970       help. You need to logout/relogin to use your own userid afterwards.
  1971       This function only works correctly if you use moin_cookie authentication.
  1972       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  1973     * Add new markup for bulletless lists: just use a "." instead of "*".
  1975   Other changes:
  1976     * Added "voyager" to bot useragent list.
  1977     * Added locking for caching subsystem.
  1978     * Deron Meranda's formatter API cleanup.
  1979     * Added div and span to formatter API.
  1980     * Removed old unfinished form and export code.
  1981     * updated i18n
  1983   Fixes:
  1984    * Fixed table attribute parsing.
  1985    * Fixed cookie handling wrt properties adherance.
  1986    * The new "." list markup makes it possible to have a bulletless list with
  1987      elements on the same level. Before this change and only using indentation
  1988      with blanks, that would get merged into a single paragraph.
  1989    * It is possible now to have multiple paragraphs in the same list element,
  1990      just leave an empty line in between the paragraphs.
  1991    * Fixed GAP processing for ordered lists.
  1992    * Fix text_gedit formatter's invalid list nesting.
  1993    * Fixed hr crash in blockquote (but needs more work).
  1994    * Fixed FootNote's formatter usage.
  1995    * Fixed rst's headline levels.
  1996    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/WikiParserThinksItIsInsidePreWhenItIsNot
  1997    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ListItemGeneratedOutsideList
  1998    * Fixed that macros were followed by a wrong <p>.
  1999    * Added <blockquote> to the block elements in the text_html formatter,
  2000      so it does not close it erratically when you close a inner <p>.
  2001    * GUI editor converter now also accept http: urls without // (relative or
  2002      same server urls).
  2003    * Fixed the DocBook parser in cases where the pagename was non-ascii.
  2004    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ProcessInlineDontSupportUlElement
  2007 Version 1.5.1:
  2009   Fixes:
  2010     * Fixed rst parser docutils version check
  2011     * Repaired attachment unzipping feature.
  2012     * Fixed the AddRevision command of the PackageInstaller.
  2013     * improved the migration scripts (used to migrate pre-1.3 wikis to 1.3+):
  2014       * do not crash on empty lines in event log
  2015       * fix edit log format for very old moin data (like 0.11)
  2016       * workaround for an ugly win32 operating system bug leading to wiki text
  2017         file mtime not matching edit logs timestamp values if there was some
  2018         timezone change since last edit (e.g. a daylight saving tz switch),
  2019         but differing 3600s.
  2020         This affected pre-1.3 moin wiki servers running on win32 OS only.
  2021         We now try to correct those inconsistencies in mig05 by fuzzy matching.
  2022     * fixed bracketed link scheme icon (css class)
  2023     * we included a modified copy of Python 2.4.2's as some previous
  2024       python versions seem to have problems (2.3.x, x < 5 and also 2.4[.0]),
  2025       see:
  2026       Our own was slightly modified to run on 2.3.x and 2.4.x.
  2027     * Fixed the problem of not being able to change the date/time format back
  2028       to "Default" (UserPreferences).
  2029     * We generate the GUI editor footer now the same way as the text editor
  2030       footer.
  2031     * Include a CSS workaround for yet another IE bug, see:
  2032       MoinMoinBugs:InternetExplorerPeekABooBugInRightSideBar
  2033     * classic theme: added GUI editor link
  2034     * classic theme: added pagename header to editor screen
  2035     * the "mail enabled" check now also checks whether mail_from is set
  2037   Other changes:
  2038     * Updated FCKeditor to current CVS (2006-01-08 == 2.2+)
  2039     * Split up show_hosts into show_hosts and show_names
  2040     * attachment:file%20with%20spaces.txt in attachment list
  2041     * added support for file:// in GUI editor link dialogue, see also:
  2042       MoinMoin:FileLinks
  2043     * cfg.mail_smarthost now supports "server:port" syntax, the default port
  2044       is 25, of course.
  2045     * removed unused kwargs showpage/editable/form from wikiutil.send_footer
  2046     * updated i18n (translation texts, additional languages)
  2047     * removed interwiki:pagename from print view's top of page, added it to
  2048       the "lasted edited" line at bottom right.
  2051 Version 1.5.0:
  2052   HINT: 1.5.0 uses the same data/pages format as 1.3.x. The only thing you want
  2053         to check is whether the 1.5.x version you are upgrading to has NEW mig
  2054         scripts compared to the version you are running now (e.g. in 1.3.5 we
  2055         added some scripts that fixed some small problems).
  2056         See the MoinMoin/scripts/migration/ directory.
  2057         You must run every mig script in sequence and only ONCE ever.
  2058   Fixes:
  2059     * Fix <x=y> table attributes parsing. Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2060     * Fixed a few bugs in the reStructured text parser. Note that you
  2061       need to install docutils 0.3.10 or newer (snapshot from December 2005
  2062       or newer) to make reStructuring parsing work:
  2063      * Case preservation for anonymous links
  2064      * MoinMoin links get the appropriate CSS class
  2065      * Images do not get special CSS markup anymore
  2066      Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2067     * Fixed a bug in the WSGI code which led to incorrect exception handling.
  2068     * Removed all nationality flags. They used to be used for indicating some
  2069       specific language (NOT nationality) and this was simply wrong and a bad
  2070       idea.
  2071     * Fixed some header rendering issues (CSS).
  2072     * SystemAdmin macro now checks against cfg.superuser list.
  2074   Other changes:
  2075     * Added turkish i18n. To be considered as alpha as it got in last minute.
  2078 Version 1.5.0rc1:
  2079   This is the first release candidate of MoinMoin 1.5.0.
  2081   Fixes:
  2082     * fixed broken logs when a DeletePage (maybe also RenamePage) comment
  2083       contained CR/LF characters (could happen when using copy&paste)
  2084     * fixed GUI editor MoinEditorBackup page containing HTML instead of wiki
  2085       markup
  2086     * fixed invalid HTML in FootNotes
  2087     * fixed HTML source in EditorBackup after canceling GUI editor
  2088     * Footnotes of included pages are not shown at the bottom of the including page.
  2089     * Bug in Dict handling that often breaks first entry
  2091 Version 1.5.0beta6:
  2092   Authentication:
  2093     * Added SSO module for PHP based apps. Currently supported: eGroupware 1.2.
  2094       No need to login in two systems anymore - MoinMoin will read the PHP session
  2095       files.
  2097   Fixes:
  2098     * Improved rendering of bullet lists and external links in Restructured text.
  2099       Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2100     * Fixed modern theme rendering, including some fixes and workarounds for
  2101       broken MS IE.
  2102     * When checking for email uniqueness, do not compare with disabled user
  2103       profiles.
  2104     * Fix sending of HTTP headers for Despam action.
  2105     * Add some margin left and right of the link icons.
  2107   Other changes:
  2108     * Made it easier for auth methods needing a user interface (like ldap or
  2109       mysql stuff). Unlike http auth, they usually need some "login form".
  2110       We made UserPreferences login form values (name, password, login, logout)
  2111       available as kw args of the auth method, so it is easy and obvious now.
  2112     * Make login and logout show at the same place. Is only shown when
  2113       show_login is True (default).
  2114     * Disabled login using &uid=12345.67.8910 method. Please use name/password.
  2115     * Made builtin moin_cookie authentication more modular: the cookie is now
  2116       touched by MoinMoin.auth.moin_cookie only, with one minor discomfort:
  2117       When creating a user, you are not automatically logged in any more.
  2118     * We now use the packager for additional help and system pages in all other
  2119       languages except English. The packages are attached to SystemPagesSetup
  2120       page and can be installed from there after getting "superuser" powers.
  2121       The "extra" package contains a collection of orphan pages not listed on
  2122       some SystemPagesIn<Language>Group page.
  2125 Version 1.5.0beta5:
  2126   Fixes:
  2127     * Fixed a minor user interface bug: it showed RenamePage and DeletePage
  2128       actions in the menu if you only had write rights and then complained
  2129       when you really tried when you had no delete rights additionally.
  2130     * We don't remove RenamePage and DeletePage from menu any more if user is
  2131       unknown. This stuff is only driven by ACLs now.
  2132     * Some fixes to Despam action.
  2133     * Fixed moin_dump (broken by some recent theme init change).
  2134     * Fixed a few tests by moving the theme init from moin_dump to RequestCLI.
  2135     * removed old_onload reference from infobox.js
  2136     * Fixed MoinMoin logo for IE.
  2137     * search: fixed whitespace handling in linkto: search terms
  2138     * Increased stability of the tests system by outputting results to sys.stdout
  2139       instead of request. Note that this changes the semantics for e.g. mod_py or
  2140       mod_fcgi.
  2141     * Fixed packaging system in the case of AddRevision that does not alter the page.
  2142     * Fixed a few bugs in the XML formatters (dom_xml, text_xml, xml_docbook).
  2143     * Fixed link icons. We now just use where xxx is the link scheme,
  2144       e.g. a.http.before. See theme's common.css.
  2145     * Hopefully fixed some issue with non-ASCII attachment filenames.
  2146     * Workaround for Opera 8.5 making silly "No addition" categories.
  2147     * Do not show GUI editor for non-wiki format pages, because we only have a
  2148       converter from html to wiki right now.
  2149     * Fix the modern CSS issues for editbar, when it shifted content far right.
  2150       Also removed the absolute height value that never was right.
  2151     * Fix mod_python adaptor bugs failing to handle Location correctly.
  2152       See:
  2154   Other changes:
  2155     * Added irc:// to the builtin supported link schemas. You can remove it
  2156       from config.url_schemas in case you have patched it in there.
  2157     * Added cfg.user_autocreate (default: False). Use True to enable user
  2158       profile autocreation, e.g. when you use http authentication, so your
  2159       externally authenticated users don't need to create their moin profile
  2160       manually. The auth method (see cfg.auth list) must check this setting
  2161       if it supports auto creation.
  2162     * Added user_autocreate support for auth.http and auth.sslclientcert.
  2163     * Added "." and "@" to allowed characters in usernames. This is needed
  2164       e.g. when using mod_pubcookie for authentication. mod_pubcookie returns
  2165       userids like "geek@ANDREW.CMU.EDU" (e.g. the Kerberos domain is part of
  2166       the id). Thanks to Brian E. Gallew for his patch, which we used for
  2167       inspiration for user autocreation changes.
  2168     * Changed auth method to return a tuple (user_obj, continue_flag), see
  2169       comments in
  2170     * auth methods now create user objects with kw args auth_method and
  2171       auth_attribs, so that moin knows later how the user was authenticated
  2172       and which user object attributes were determined by the auth method.
  2173     * Added MoinMoin/scripts/import/ to import supybot's
  2174       IRC logs into a moin wiki. We use MonthCalendar compatible page names,
  2175       so you can use the calendar for showing / navigating the logs.
  2176     * Removed packager binary from FCKeditor (fixing a Debian policy problem).
  2177     * Worked around .png transparency bugs of IE with the new logo. We ship
  2178       two logos: moinmoin.png without an alpha channel (IE compatible) and
  2179       moinmoin_alpha.png which has an alpha channel and looks better on
  2180       browsers with full .png support.
  2181     * Allow a .zip file to have a directory in it if it is the only one.
  2183 Version 1.5.0beta4:
  2184   Fixes:
  2185     * use <span class="anchor"> instead of <a> for line-xxx anchors, this
  2186       fixes some rendering problems on IE
  2187     * Fixed the ReStructured text parser when it was used with non-HTML
  2188       formatters. Increased compatiblity with new docutils code.
  2189       (Thanks to Matt Gilbert.)
  2190   Other changes:
  2191     * cfg.stylesheets = [] (default). You can use this on wiki or farm level
  2192       to emit stylesheets after the theme css and before the user prefs css.
  2193       The list entries must be ('screen', '/where/ever/is/my.css') style.
  2194     * Added sample code for auth using an external cookie made by some other
  2195       program. See contrib/auth_externalcookie/*. You need to edit it to
  2196       fit whatever cookie you want to use.
  2198 Version 1.5.0beta3:
  2199   Fixes:
  2200     * fixed editor preview throwing away page content for new pages
  2201     * require POST for userform save and create* action
  2202     * use request.normalizePagename() while collecting pagelinks
  2203     * do not offer gui editor for safari
  2204   Other changes:
  2205     * tell user if account is disabled
  2206     * added support for linking to .ico and .bmp
  2207     * attachment methods for the text_xml and xml_docbook formatters
  2208     * new favicon
  2209     * updated i18n (fixed nl, did nobody notice this?) and underlay
  2210     * changed show_interwiki default to 0
  2212 Version 1.5.0beta2:
  2213   Fixes:
  2214     * fix wrong _ in title links (MoinMoinBugs/AddSpaceWikiNameAtHead)
  2215     * fix gui editor (converter) crash on save
  2216     * MoinMoinBugs/PageHitsFails
  2217     * MoinMoinBugs/PackagePagesFailsBecauseAllowedActionsMissing
  2218     * Avoid destroying existing page content if editor is called with
  2219       template parameter for an existing page.
  2220     * fix countdown javascript for browser status line in editor
  2221     * added page title display for editor
  2222     * added header div for classic theme
  2224   Authentication and related:
  2225     * Added a wiki xmlrpc plugin to check whether auth works
  2226       correctly for xmlrpc. There is a counterpart script that
  2227       uses http auth when calling the xmlrpc plugin, so you can use it to
  2228       check http auth.
  2230 Version 1.5.0beta1:
  2231     * Requirements changed to require Python >= 2.3. We recommend that
  2232       you use the latest Python release you can get. The reason we
  2233       dropped 2.2.2 support is because no developer or tester uses this
  2234       old version any more, so incompatibilities crept in the code
  2235       without anybody noticing. Using some recent Python usually is no
  2236       real problem, see there for some hints in case you still run an
  2237       old python:
  2238       The hint also does apply to other POSIX style operating systems,
  2239       not only Linux.
  2240     * We recommend you use MoinMoin/scripts/ to clean the
  2241       wiki's cache (see comments at top of the script).
  2242       The cache will automatically be rebuilt (some operations may take
  2243       some time when first being used, e.g. linkto: search, so be patient!).
  2245   Config Changes:
  2246      * there is a file CHANGES.config with just the recently changed stuff
  2247        from
  2248      * new defaults:
  2249        * page_front_page old: u"FrontPage" new: u"HelpOnLanguages"
  2250          please just read the help page in case you see it :)
  2251        * bang_meta old: 0 new: 1
  2252        * show_section_numbers old: 1 new: 0
  2253        * some regexes that used to be [a-z]Uxxxx$ are now [a-z0-9]Uxxxx$
  2254        * navi_bar has no page_front_page as first element any more
  2255      * removed settings and code [new behaviour]:
  2256        * acl_enabled [1]
  2257        * allow_extended_names [1]
  2258        * allow_numeric_entities [1]
  2259        * backtick_meta [1]
  2260        * allow_subpages [1]
  2261      * new settings:
  2262       * cfg.mail_sendmail = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i" can be used if sending
  2263         via SMTP doesn't work on your server. Default is None and that means
  2264         using SMTP.
  2265       * language_default replaces the old default_lang setting (just renamed).
  2266       * language_ignore_browser = True can be used to let moin ignore the
  2267         user's browser settings (e.g. if you run a local-language only wiki
  2268         and your users use misconfigured or buggy browsers often). Default is
  2269         False. Don't forget to set language_default when using this.
  2271     * Wiki Editor changes / new WYSIWYG editor
  2272      * fully imported the javascript based LGPLed FCKeditor (many thanks
  2273       to Fred CK for his great work). See for details.
  2274      * config for FCKeditor is at wiki/htdocs/applets/moinfckeditor.js
  2275      * added cfg.interwiki_preferred (default = []) to set a list of wikis to
  2276        show at the top of the wiki selection list when inserting an
  2277        interwiki link (just use the same wiki name as in interwiki
  2278        map). If the last list item is None, then the preferred wikis
  2279        will not be followed by the entries of the interwiki map.
  2280     * moved save/preview/... buttons to the top so that they can be
  2281       easily reached
  2282     * reduced edit_rows default to 20 lines
  2283     * Added support for edit by doubleclick in the diff view
  2285     * Improved wiki farm support
  2286      * make user files sharable between several wikis in a farm
  2287       * allow/use interwiki subscriptions
  2288       * use interwiki links in page trail
  2289       * save bookmark per wiki name
  2290      * cfg.cookie_domain can be used to set a cookie valid for a complete
  2291        domain (default: None == only for this host). If you use '.domain.tld',
  2292        the cookie will be valid for all hosts *.domain.tld - good for host
  2293        based wiki farms.
  2294      * cfg.cookie_path can be used to set a cookie valid for a wiki farm under
  2295        some base path (default: None == only for this wiki's path). If you use
  2296        '/wikifarm',  the cookie will be valid for all wikis
  2297        server.tld/wikifarm/* - good for path based wiki farms.
  2298      * Interwiki user homepage (if you have MANY users)
  2299        Generated links for usernames are interwiki now, use cfg.user_homewiki
  2300        (default: 'Self') to specify in which wiki the user home pages are
  2301        located. Note: when pointing this to another wiki, the /MoinEditorBackup
  2302        functionality will be disabled.
  2303        @SIG@ also uses interwiki when needed.
  2305     * Authentication, ACLs and related
  2306      * Modular authentication: cfg.auth is a list of functions that return a
  2307        valid user or None, use it like this:
  2308            from MoinMoin.auth import http, moin_cookie
  2309            auth = [http, moin_cookie]
  2310      * cfg.auth_http_enabled was removed, please use cfg.auth instead.
  2311      * http auth now supports "Negotiate" scheme, too
  2312      * Added sslclientcert auth method (Apache: untested, Twisted: not
  2313        implemented, IIS: no idea). See MoinMoin/ for details.
  2314        Submit a patch if you have improvements.
  2315      * cfg.superuser is a list of unicode usernames. It is used by some
  2316        critical operations like despam action or PackageInstaller.
  2317      * removed allowed_actions, we now use actions_excluded only and it
  2318        defaults to [], that means, no action is excluded, everything is
  2319        allowed (limited by ACLs). In case of RenamePage and DeletePage,
  2320        this shouldn't be a problem as both can be reverted. In case you
  2321        did not allow attachments, you now have to use:
  2322        actions_excluded = ['AttachFile']
  2323      * special users (All, Known, Trusted) in Groups are now supported
  2324      * SecurityPolicy added
  2325        When using this security policy, a user will get admin rights on his
  2326        homepage (where pagename == username) and its sub pages. This is needed
  2327        for the MyPages action, but can also get used for manual ACL changes.
  2328        It can also be used for Project page auto admin functionality, see the
  2329        comments in the script for details.
  2330        Further it can automatically create the user's group pages when the
  2331        user saves his homepage.
  2332      * there is a UpdateGroup xmlrpc call, see MoinMoin/xmlrpc/ -
  2333        you can use this to update your *Group pages e.g. when generating them
  2334        from an external group database.
  2336     * UserPreferences changes
  2337      * Alias name: is used for display purposes, when "name" is cryptic. It is
  2338        shown e.g. in the title attribute of userid links (displayed when
  2339        moving the mouse over it).
  2340      * "Publish my email (not my wiki homepage) in author info" - use this
  2341        if you don't have a wiki homepage, but if you want to be contactable
  2342        by email. When you edit a page, your email address will be published
  2343        as mailto: link on RecentChanges, at bottom of page (last editor) and
  2344        in page info. If the wiki runs publically on the internet, be careful
  2345        using this or your email address might be collected by spammers.
  2346      * Preferred Editor: whether you want to use the text editor (as in
  2347        previous moin versions), the gui editor (new!) or both (you will get
  2348        2 edit links in that case).
  2349      * a user can add/remove the current page to/from his quicklinks with an
  2350        appropriate action now
  2351      * if cfg.user_email_unique = False, we don't require user's email
  2352        addresses to be unique
  2353      * removed show_fancy_links user preferences setting to simplify code and
  2354        caching. Displaying those icons is now done by CSS styles (see
  2355        common.css). Maybe needs fixing for non-standard themes and RTL langs.
  2357     * Markup
  2358      * added strikethrough markup: --(striked through text here)--
  2359      * @ME@ expands to just the plain username (no markup added) on save
  2361     * User homepages
  2362      * when a user accesses his own non-existing homepage (pagename ==
  2363        username), the wiki will present the MissingHomePage system page
  2364        content, explaining what a user homepage is good for and offer
  2365        one-click editing it with content loaded from HomepageTemplate
  2366      * creation of homepage subpages is assisted by the MyPages action, which
  2367        offers rw, ro page creation (and a related group) or creation of private
  2368        pages. If you are not in the user_homewiki, you will get redirected
  2369        there first.
  2371   Other changes/new features:
  2372     * Added PackageInstaller and unzipping support (see wiki page
  2373       HelpOnActions/AttachFile for further details).  PackageInstaller requires
  2374       the user to be in cfg.superuser list.
  2375      * Added an PackagePages action to simplify the package creation.
  2376     * Added location breadcrumbs - when you are on some subpage, the page
  2377       title parts link to the corresponding parent pages, the last part does
  2378       the usual reverse linking.
  2379     * added WSGI server support, thanks to Anakim Border, see:
  2380       wiki/server/ (moin as WSGI app, uses the flup WSGI server,
  2381                                see
  2382       MoinMoin/server/ (adaptor code)
  2383     * added a "Despam" action to make de-spamming a wiki easy (mass revert
  2384       bad changes done by a single author or bot). You need to be in
  2385       cfg.superuser to use it.
  2386     * Better diffs with links to anchors to the changed places
  2387     * Enhanced table support in the DocBook formatter.
  2388     * Added 'moin' daemon script, that let you run moin standalone
  2389       server as daemon and control the server with simple command line
  2390       intreface: moin start | stop | restart | kill
  2391     * Add 'restart' option to mointwisted script
  2392     * Add properties option to standalone server config. Allow
  2393       overriding any request property like in other server types.
  2394     * Add support for running behind proxy out of the box with out
  2395       manual url mapping.
  2396       See HelpOnConfiguration/IntegratingWithApache
  2397     * added a WikiBackup action, configure it similar to this:
  2398       data_dir = "/path/to/data"
  2399       backup_include = [data_dir, ] # you can add other dirs here
  2400       backup_users = ["BackupUserName", ] # only TRUSTED users!
  2401       You usually don't need to change the default backup_exclude setting.
  2402       The default backup_include list is EMPTY and so will be your
  2403       backup in case you don't configure it correctly.
  2404       If you put your data_dir there, the backup will contain private
  2405       user data like email addresses and encrypted passwords.
  2406     * Added a SubscribeUser action which allows the administrator to subscribe users to the
  2407       current page.
  2408     * Added thread count to SystemInfo macro.
  2409     * Added Petr's newest patch against the DocBook code. It allows you to use macros (esp. the include macro) in DocBook pages in order to build larger documents.
  2410     * Added a RenderAsDocbook action which redirects to the DocBook formatter.
  2411     * Added searching for wiki-local words lists under <data_dir>/dict/.
  2412       They are used additionally to the global lists in MoinMoin/dict/.
  2413     * moin_dump now also dumps attachments referenced from the page.
  2414       It doesn't dump stuff that is just attached, but not referenced!
  2415     * On RecentChanges we now force the comment to be breakable, this improves
  2416       rendering of over-long words or on narrow browser windows - especially
  2417       for themes with limited content width like rightsidebar.
  2418     * We now have the "new" icon on RecentChanges clickable, just links to the
  2419       page.
  2420     * Print view now shows "interwikiname: pagename" (for show_interwiki = 1).
  2422   International support:    
  2423     * mail_from can be now a unicode name-address 
  2424       e.g u'Jürgen wiki <>'
  2426   Theme changes:
  2427     * logo_string is now should be really only the logo (img).
  2428       If you included your wiki's name in logo_string you maybe want to remove
  2429       it now as it is shown as part of the location display now anyway (if
  2430       you set show_interwiki = 1).
  2431     * You maybe want to remove page_front_page from your navi_bar - we link to
  2432       that page now from the logo and (new, if you set show_interwiki = 1) from
  2433       the interwiki name displayed in location display, so you maybe don't need
  2434       it in navi_bar, too.
  2435     * If you have a custom theme, you should / may:
  2436      * sync modern/css/screen.css #pagelocation #pagetrail stuff to your
  2437        screen.css or pagelocation display (title()) will look strange (like a
  2438        list).
  2439      * remove "#title h1 ..." CSS (or any other CSS assuming h1 is a page
  2440        title and not just a first level heading), it is not used any more.
  2441      * we now render = heading = as <h1> (was <h2> before 1.5),
  2442        == heading == as <h2> (was <h3>), etc.
  2443      * maybe move both title() and trail() to header area, like the builtin
  2444        themes do it.
  2445      * there is a new interwiki() base theme method that optionally (if
  2446        show_interwiki = 1) shows the interwiki name of this wiki and links to
  2447        page_front_page. The css for it is #interwiki.
  2449   Developer notes:    
  2450     * Plugin API was improved. When plugin module is missing,
  2451       wikiutil.PluginMissingError is raised. When trying to import a
  2452       missing name from a plugin module, wikiutil.PluginMissingError is
  2453       raised. You must update any code that use wikiutil.importPlugin.
  2454       Errors in your plugin should raise now correct tracebacks. See
  2456     * pysupport.importName was changed, it does not check for any
  2457       errors when trying to import a name from a module. The calling
  2458       code should check for ImportError or AttributeError. Previous
  2459       code used to hide all errors behind None.
  2460     * Its easier now to customize the editbar by overriding
  2461       editbarItems() in your theme, and returning a list of items to
  2462       display in the editbar. To change a single editbar link, override
  2463       one of the xxxLink methods in your theme.
  2465   Internal Changes:
  2466     * request.formatter (html) is available for actions now
  2467     * theme API's d['page_home_page'] is gone (sorry) and replaced by
  2468       d['home_page'] which is either None or tuple (wikiname,pagename).
  2469       It is better to use the base classes function for username/prefs anyway.
  2470     * introduced cfg.hacks for internal use by development, see comment in
  2471 and file HACKS.
  2472     * added IE7 (v0.9) from Dean Edwards (see -
  2473       that should fix quite some IE bugs and annoyances (on Win32).
  2474       * for enabling IE7, use cfg.hacks = { 'ie7': True }
  2475     * reducewiki now also copies all attachments (we use that to make underlay
  2476       directory from moinmaster wiki's data_dir)
  2478   Fixes:  
  2479     * Fixed a typo in which led to a traceback instead of an
  2480       error message in case of disabled XSLT support.
  2481     * Fixed crash in twisted server if twisted.internet.ssl is not
  2482       available.
  2483     * Fixed wrong decoding of query string, enable wiki/?page_name urls
  2484       with non ascii page names.
  2485     * Fixed wrong display of non ascii attachments names in
  2486       RecentChanges and page revision history.
  2487     * Fixed a crash when trying to run standalone server on non posix os.
  2488     * Fixed highlight of misspelled words in Check Spelling action.
  2489     * Fixed case insensitivity problems on darwin (Mac OS X). See
  2490       MoinMoinBugs/MacHfsPlusCaseInsensitive
  2491     * Added RecentChanges (only the english one) to the pages getting
  2492       html_head_index headers
  2493     * text_html cache files written with this code will invalidate themselves
  2494       if they detect to be older than the wikiconfig. Note: you should remove
  2495       all old text_html cache files once after upgrading, they will then be
  2496       rebuilt automatically with the new code.
  2497     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/12_to_13_mig10_Walk
  2498     * Fixed the word_rule: a word like AAAbbAbb isn't teared into two parts
  2499       any more (was: AA<link>AbbAbb</link>)
  2500     * Fixed false positive InterWiki markup for languages like Finnish.
  2501       InterWiki links are only rendered if the left side has an appropriate
  2502       entry in the interwiki map, otherwise it is rendered as simple text.
  2503     * Fixed unicode error when uploding non-ascii file name using mod
  2504       python.
  2505     * Fixed error handling of wikirpc requests, should give more
  2506       correct errors and prevent no error output and blocking the
  2507       client in some cases.
  2508     * Fixed the "lost password" mail processing. If a user entered some email
  2509       address unknown to the system, he was not notified of this, but just got
  2510       a useless mail with no account data in it. Now the system directly tells
  2511       the user that he entered an unknown email address.
  2512     * Fixed SystemInfo, it now also lists parsers in data/plugin/parser dir.
  2513     * Fix error handling on failure, improved error display
  2514     * Fix error handling when importing plugins or importing modules
  2515       dynamically. The fix is not backward compatible with older plugins.
  2516     * Fix chart action, returns a page with error message when chart
  2517       can not be created.
  2518     * Fixed formatter usage in the ShowSmileys macro.
  2519     * Fixed updating pagelinks cache for [:page:text] or [wiki:Self:page text],
  2520       fixes display of LocalSiteMap and rendering of such links.
  2521     * Hopefully fixed urllib problems (esp. with py 2.4.2, but also before) by
  2522       using our own urllib wrapper that handles encoding/decoding to/from
  2523       unicode, see Also made a similar fix for making and parsing
  2524       query strings.
  2525     * Fixed MonthCalendar tooltips when containing special chars like quotes.
  2526     * Added html escaping for diff text for RSS feed with diff=1.
  2527     * The distance between page content beginning and the first = heading =
  2528       was much too much. Fixed.
  2530 Version 1.4:
  2532     We used that version number for an internal and early development version
  2533     for what will be called moin 2.0 at some time in the future.
  2534     There will never be a 1.4.x release.
  2537 Version 1.3.5 (2005-08-04, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-883)
  2539 Fixes:
  2540     * small CSS fix for rightsidebar theme
  2541     * applied some Debian patches (thanks to Jonas!):
  2542       * de i18n spelling fixes
  2543       * AttachFile fix, we strip CR in .draw files now
  2544       * when loading spellcheck dictionaries, we want utf-8, but we make
  2545         a 2nd try with iso-8859-1 encoding.
  2547 New Features:
  2549     * enabled using https with the Twisted server:
  2550       You need to use port 443, have PyOpenSSL (+ ssl libs it depends on)
  2551       installed and have some site key and certificate PEM files configured in
  2552       your file:
  2553       sslcert = ('/whereever/cert/sitekey.pem', '/whereever/cert/sitecert.pem')
  2556 Version 1.3.5rc1 (2005-07-31, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-865)
  2558 Fixes:
  2560     * Fixed security bug when acl of deleted page was ignored. See:
  2562     * AttachFile did not display the original filename plus there
  2563       was a confusion in input field labelling ('Rename to').
  2564     * Fixed shortcut link non-existent page detection.
  2565     * Fixed non-working bookmark function on python 2.2.x.
  2566     * Fixed wikirpc getPageInfo call on python 2.2.x.
  2567     * Fixed the failing import of plugins from the data/plugin/
  2568       directories if run in zipimport environments.
  2569     * Fixed traceback which occurred on negated searches.
  2570     * Fixed crash when trying to render error message on twisted, fast
  2571       cgi and modpy.
  2572     * Fixed error message with modpy, used to show wrong errors below
  2573       the real message.
  2574     * Fixed search and goto text fields for better compatibility with
  2575       dark themes and better control through css.
  2576     * Show an edit link if MissingPage is missing and a warning in the
  2577       server log.
  2578     * Fixed missing footer in the editor.
  2579     * Fixed indented (invalid) headings with broken links in table of
  2580       contents.
  2581     * Fixed crash when file name is too long, show standard error message.
  2582     * Save trail file in a safe way, should be enough for normal use.
  2583     * Fixed remember_last_visit user preferences option when show_trail
  2584       is not selected.
  2585     * Fixed the tests for Standalone, Twisted, FastCGI and Mod_Python.
  2586       Run with ?action=test from any page.
  2587     * Fixed rare bug when wrong search type was performed when pasting
  2588       search term in Safari.
  2589     * Fixed crash for custom formatters and dom_xml (which occurred if
  2590       smileys were in the page).
  2591     * Editor opens on double click in pages with single quote in the
  2592       name, like "Ben's Wiki".
  2593     * '/.' in page names are not replaced any more by '/(2e)'
  2594     * Fixed the long delays while saving pages using RequestCLI.
  2595     * Fixed variable expanding for users with non WikiName.
  2596     * Fixed MonthCalendar's calculation of "today" to use the user's
  2597       time zone setting.
  2598     * Fixed moin_dump script, use same configuration options as other
  2599       scripts.
  2600     * Fixed url_mappings to work in proxied setups and sent mails
  2601       again. Also fixed for image links. Thanks to JohannesBerg.
  2602     * Fixed page shown after saving a drawing (esp. when saved from a
  2603       sub page). Fixed help link for drawings.
  2604     * Fixed mig10 script to run on Python < 2.3.
  2605     * The twisted server defaulted to a socket timeout of 12 hours!
  2606       We reduced that to a more sane 10 minutes, that should still be more
  2607       than enough. This fixed the "too many open files" problem we
  2608       encountered quite often recently. Thanks to Helmut Grohne!
  2610 Other Changes:
  2612     * Added {hu} flag.
  2613     * Added cz, pt and pt-br i18n.
  2614     * We send a 404 http status code for nonexisting wiki pages now,
  2615       maybe this will repell some search engines from requesting gone
  2616       pages again and again. The wiki user still sees the MissingPage
  2617       wiki stuff, so a user usually won't notice this change.
  2618     * Return 500 error code on failure and exceptions.
  2619     * Added some more bot / leech tool user agent strings.
  2620     * Prevent page floating elements from floating out of the page over
  2621       the footer, in modern, rightsidebar and classic themes.
  2622     * Encode URLs in a safer way
  2623     * We allow usernames with ' character in them now (like Tim O'Brian).
  2624     * Added support for the new security flags in docutils 0.3.9.
  2625     * @MAILTO@ expands now to safer [[MailTo()]] macro.
  2626     * Clarified and i18ned lost password mails.
  2627     * Added 'TitleIndex' and 'SiteNavigation' (+ translation) to the
  2628       list of pages that use html_head_index (so that robots
  2629       "index,follow").  Please make sure to have either FindPage,
  2630       TitleIndex or SiteNavigation in your navi_bar or in your
  2631       page_front_page content if you want search engines to find all
  2632       your pages.
  2633     * Make it possible to send account data when being logged in (for
  2634       future reference or whatever purpose).
  2635     * Speed up when running with persistent servers, the wiki config
  2636       does only get loaded once and misc. stuff is being cached between
  2637       requests now.
  2638     * The unit tests are disabled when using multi threading, because
  2639       the wiki configuration is shared between diffrent threads.
  2640     * The main code path (using standalone server) of MoinMoin runs on
  2641       PyPy now.
  2642     * Formatters do automatically transform HTML to plain text if they are
  2643       called with raw HTML code.
  2644     * Using larger socket backlog on Standalone and FastCGI servers
  2645       should be more reliable on high load.
  2646     * We now strip leading path from attachments uploaded by IE (this is
  2647       a bug in IE, not in MoinMoin). Better use a sane browser, like Firefox.
  2648     * added "teleport" to the user agent blacklist
  2650 New Features:
  2652     * Integrated Lupy indexer for better search performance. It is disabled
  2653       by default as of 1.3.5 as it still has known issues.
  2654       See if you want to test it.
  2655     * Integrated MonthCalendar 2.1, with some new features:
  2656       * a mouseover bubble that shows first level headlines of the linked
  2657         day page
  2658       * all calendars with same pagename move when using cal navigation,
  2659         thanks to Oliver Graf
  2660       * included AnnualMonthlyCalendar patch of Jonathan Dietrich
  2661         (use [[MonthCalendar(Yearly,,,+1,,6,1)]] syntax for birthdays and
  2662         other annually repeating stuff)
  2663       Make sure you remove old MonthCalendar.* from data/plugin/macro so that
  2664       moin will use the new code in MoinMoin/macro/
  2665       Maybe also clear the text_html cache.
  2666     * Added the new XSLT parser and the DocBook parser. This should increase
  2667       the 4suite compatiblity. See HelpOnXmlPages for details.
  2668       It now should run on 4suite 1.0a4 and 1.0b1. Thanks to Henry Ho!
  2669     * Added the DocBook formatter. This will let you generate DocBook markup
  2670       by writing simple wiki pages. It needs PyXML.
  2671     * It is now possible to customize parts of the UserPreferences page in
  2672       your wikiconfig (changing defaults, disabling fields, removing fields):
  2673       * Use user_checkbox_* for the checkboxes.
  2674       * Use user_form_* for other fields.
  2675       * See MoinMoin/ for the built-in defaults.
  2676     * New standalone server classes: ThreadPoolServer using pool of
  2677       threads, ThreadingServer with thread limit and ForkingServer.
  2678     * New standalone server configuration options: serverClass,
  2679       threadLimit, requestQueueSize.
  2680     * Use "PythonOption Location" in mod_python setup to solve script_name
  2681       problems.
  2683 Developer notes:
  2685     * Theme can now override maxPagenameLength() method to control page
  2686       name shortening.
  2687     * A search Match now provides access to the full re match via
  2688       the re_match attribute (use to access groups of the match)
  2689     * Underlay is not managed by arch any more. The tree contains an
  2690       underlay tarball, and you should untar after you update from main.
  2691     * "make update-underlay" will untar underlay
  2692     * "make merge" will star-merge main into your tree
  2693     * "make test" will now create and run in a fresh testwiki instace
  2694     * "make clean" options added
  2695     * _tests module does not have a global request any more. To refer to
  2696       the current request in a test, use self.request.
  2697     * _tests.TestConfig class require a request in the constructor.
  2698     * "python tests/ test_module" will run only test_module
  2699     * request.cfg stays between requests (for persistent servers).
  2702 Version 1.3.4 (2005-03-13, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-666)
  2704 Fixes:
  2706     * Fixed ACL check in LikePages macro that caused links to unreadable 
  2707       pages to show.
  2708     * Fixed ACL check in newpage action.
  2709     * Fixed a security problem when admin policy defined in a custom
  2710       SecurityPolicy class was ignored.
  2711     * Fixed ACL check in action=show so that a user who may not read a page
  2712       also can't find out WHEN the protected page was updated.
  2713     * Workaround on Windows 95, 98, ME in order to clear the dircache.
  2714       This fixes some bugs related to an outdated page list and newly created
  2715       pages that did not appear immediately.
  2716     * Fixed decoding issues of page names on Windows, finally.
  2718     * Fixed traceback on IIS.
  2720     * Fixed wikirpc for standalone server.
  2721     * Other fixes (encoding and str/unicode data type related) to wikirpc
  2722       server, fixing some non-ascii issues hopefully.
  2723     * Fixed broken query strings for Standalone installations.
  2724     * Fixed backlinks - the result did not always show all links, often it 
  2725       showed too many irrelevant matches (MoinMoinBugs/BacklinksAreBroken).
  2726     * Fixed the acceptance of the show_hosts setting. Now you should be able
  2727       to hide any IP or host name from being published by MoinMoin by enabling
  2728       this option.
  2729     * Fixed wrong line endings on email messages.
  2730     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/StandaloneUnquotesTooMuch.
  2731     * Fixed crash when trail file is missing.
  2732     * Fixed a traceback when searching for single ( or ).
  2733     * Added mig10 script to fix crashes with uncoverted edit-locks and file
  2734       attachments. Just use it as you did with mig1..mig9 before.
  2735     * Added mig11 script to add files to data/plugin (and below).
  2736     * added some fixes for the xslt parser (thanks to fanbanlo), it might be
  2737       still broken, but someone with deeper knowledge about xslt should fix it.
  2738     * Replaced image link with W3C's "html 4.01 compliance" icon by a simple
  2739       text link to avoid https: or config trouble.
  2740     * Catch OverflowError backtrace when illegal date strings (e.g. <1970 or
  2741       >2038) are fed to moinmoin's time routines. It will just output current
  2742       date / time in those cases.
  2743     * UserPreferences now also set a date_fmt preference and Date macro
  2744       honours it. You may have to reset your UserPreferences value for that.
  2745     * Fixed free parent and subpage links in interwiki notation.
  2747     * Fixed a traceback for invalid ReST markup.
  2748     * Fixed UnicodeError in SystemAdmin's Attachment Browser.
  2750 Other Changes:
  2752     * Optimized the IRC parser.
  2753     * Support for zipimport of the MoinMoin package. This allows you to use
  2754       py2exe and similar programs.
  2755     * Show the editor's name in the mail subject.
  2756     * Added the pragmas description and keywords. They will add <meta> headers
  2757       if used.
  2758     * Added MoinMoin/scripts/xmlrpc-tools/ example script, useful
  2759       as a starting point for importing data using wiki xmlrpc.
  2760     * Optimised display on Opera browser.
  2762 New features:
  2764     * The search modifier "linkto:" was introduced. You can use it to search
  2765       for links.
  2766     * The NewPage macro now can take a PageTemplate parameter, see HelpOnMacros.
  2767     * New config settings (so you don't need to edit any more):
  2768       xmlrpc_putpage_enabled = 0 (if 1, enables writing to arbitrary page names)
  2769       xmlrpc_putpage_trusted_only = 1 (if 0, doesn't require users to be
  2770        authenticated by http auth - DANGEROUS, DO NOT SET TO 0!!!)
  2771     * Added support for Digest and NTLM authentication with CGI (e.g. if you
  2772       use those Apache modules)
  2773     * The datetime string accepted by Date and DateTime macros was extended to
  2774       accept a timezone specification, so now +/-HHMM is also valid, e.g.:
  2775       2005-03-06T15:15:57Z (UTC, same as +0000)
  2776       2005-03-06T15:15:57+0000 (UTC)
  2777       2005-03-06T16:15:57+0100 (same time given as local time for time zone
  2778                                 with offset +0100, that is CET, e.g. Germany)
  2779       2005-03-06T10:15:57-0500 (same time given as local time for time zone
  2780                                 with offset -0500, EST, US Eastern Std. Time)
  2781       The values given as macro argument will be transformed to UTC internally
  2782       and then adapted again according to viewing user's UserPreferences, so
  2783       the user will see the same moment in time but shown in his local time
  2784       zone's time (at least if he set his UserPreferences correctly and didn't
  2785       forget changing them twice a year for DST and non-DST).
  2786     * Readded (now optional) editlink footer to Include macro. Add
  2787       ',editlink' to call to enable this.
  2788     * star "smileys" e.g. {*}{*}{*}{o}{o}
  2791 Version 1.3.3 (2005-01-24, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-595)
  2793 Fixes:
  2795     * fixed ACL security problem in search

  2797       that are not in the system code page
  2798     * fixed MoinEditorBackup revisions to start with 1 now
  2799     * improved page locking ('current' file)
  2800     * Unittests (normally shown at end of action=test output) are currently
  2801       disabled for everything except CGI, because they only work reliably with
  2802       CGI, giving wrong results for other request methods.
  2805 Version 1.3.2 (2005-01-23, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-587)
  2807 Fixes:
  2809     * ACL bugfix for deleted pages with ACL protection.

  2816     * Fixed traceback in Antispam which occurred when it could not connect
  2817       to MoinMaster. Log the errors to stderr or error.log.
  2818     * Fixed bug in Page init (no date, use rev). Fixes problem with
  2819       #deprecated PI.
  2820     * Fixed empty lists in empty search results.
  2821     * Cosmetic fix for modern theme (when viewed with Internet Explorer).

  2823       note about missing error.log.
  2824     * Fixed script, keep ending newline on revisions.
  2825     * Show headings and macro content in correct direction when mixing content 
  2826       in several directions in the same page and using caching.
  2827     * Fixed bug in standalone re farmconfig.
  2828     * Fixed DOS condition in antispam code.
  2829     * Use smaller margin in print mode to get better results with 
  2830       Mozilla/Firefox.
  2831     * Fixed some user input escaping issues.
  2832     * Fixed a problem when one wiki plugin override other wikis plugins in

  2834     * Fixed some broken tests.
  2835     * Fixed recursive include in pstats.
  2836     * Fixed bug in standalone - HTTP result code was 200 even when the access
  2837       was forbidden.
  2838     * Fixed traceback when trying to login with non-ascii password.
  2839     * Fixed traceback when xml is not available, reported on Python 2.2.?
  2840     * Fixed slideshow to show slides in sorted order again.
  2841     * Fixed serving multiple wikis on same IP/different ports with twisted and
  2842       farmconfig.
  2843     * It is possible to run with data_underlay_dir = None for special
  2844       application, but be aware that the wiki won't be usable unless you have
  2845       at least some of the system pages from underlay/ available.
  2846     * Files with Unicode characters in their filename are possible now.
  2847     * Bugfix for broken [:page#anchor:text] links.
  2848     * Workaround an instability of the gdchart module leading to
  2849       stalled servers etc.
  2850     * Fixed some event-log decoding issues that affect charts rendering.
  2852 Other changes:
  2854     * Major speed improvement over 1.3.1. Many times faster title search,
  2855       creating new page, opening page editor and any operation that list pages.
  2856       See
  2857     * Improved README.migration.
  2858     * Cleaner design for login/register interface, login is always the default
  2859       button when the user click Enter.
  2860     * If there are problems found in the configuration, log the error
  2861       and display helpful error messages in the browser.
  2862     * More forgiving unicode configuration policy, you must use the u'string' 
  2863       format only for unicode values.
  2864     * Added profiling to CGI.
  2865     * The content of is similar to now.
  2866     * Unexpected errors while loading cache files are logged.
  2867     * i18n for icon ALT tags.
  2868     * Include request initialization code in the profile in standalone server.
  2869     * When creating new theme, style sheets are inherited correctly, no need
  2870       to override style sheets just to get them working.
  2871     * Many times faster plugin system. Typical pages are about 35% faster, 
  2872       pages with many plugins can be many times faster. 
  2873     * Spiders are allowed to fetch attachments.
  2874     * Old user files containing password hash encoded in pre 1.3 charset
  2875       are auto repaired on first login.
  2876     * data_dir defaults to './data', underlay_data_dir to './underlay' now.
  2877       It is a good idea to replace those by absolute pathes in
  2878     * Renamed "Refresh" to "Delete Cache" - it was misused by users. The action 
  2879       was also moved into the action menu in the modern and rightsidebar themes.
  2880     * Added a workaround for TableOfContents missing some links by making it
  2881       uncacheable via a "time" dependency.
  2882     * Removed interwiki icon and title attribute for wiki:Self:... links.
  2883     * Unittests (normally shown at end of action=test output) are currently
  2884       disabled because they worked unreliably, giving wrong results sometimes.
  2886 New features:
  2888     * Create new pages easily using configurable interface and page templates 
  2889       with the new NewPage macro.
  2890     * ReStructuredText (rst) support is built-in now. See HelpOnParsers.
  2891     * New experimental feature in - each interface may 
  2892       specify a port: ''. Without a port, the port option
  2893       is used.
  2895 API changes:
  2897     * For a complete list of changes, see MoinMoin:ApiChanges.
  2898     * wikiutil.importPlugin's first argument is now a wiki config instance 
  2899       (request.cfg) and there is no path keyword.
  2900     * Wiki plugins always override MoinMoin plugins. wikiutil.importPlugin
  2901       implements this override.
  2902     * util.pysupport.importName does not accept path - you should call 
  2903       it with correct module name, e.g '' for 
  2904       wiki plugins, or ''. 
  2905     * wikiutil.extensionPlugin was renamed to wikiPlugins and it gets config 
  2906       instance instead of path.
  2907     * New function wikiutil.importWikiPlugin used to import wiki plugins 
  2908       using a cache in a thread safe way.
  2909     * New config option config.use_threads is used to activate thread 
  2910       safe code.
  2911     * New keyword arguments for getPageList, enable 10X faster operation
  2912       for common cases by controlling page filtering.
  2913     * New up to 100X times faster getPageCount
  2916 Version 1.3.1 (2004-12-13, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-434)
  2918 Fixes:
  2920     * Fixed "Error Cyclic usage" crash when user had Italian (it), Korean
  2921       (ko), Serbian (sr) or Vietnamese (vi) as user interface language.
  2922     * Fall back to en (instead of crashing) when user uses a language moin
  2923       does not support / does not support any more (like pt,sv,fi,sr).
  2924     * In 1.3.0, people accidentally put iso-8859-1 chars into wiki configs,
  2925       but those where expected to be pure utf-8 and thus it crashed.
  2926       Fixed by using unicode strings (varname = u'whatever'), a matching
  2927       encoding setting (see top of script comment) and, when decoding strings,
  2928       using decode to ASCII with replace mode (this replaces non-ASCII chars,
  2929       but at least it won't crash - and you get a warning to better use
  2930       Unicode strings).
  2931     * Fixed long time broken table formatting. ||<style="see css spec" a||b||
  2932       Now even generates valid HTML! The old markup for align, valign, width,
  2933       bgcolor still works, but synthesizes style attribute data.
  2934     * SystemAdmin macro shows attachments of ALL pages now.
  2935     * Users without write acl rights will be able to see attachments again and
  2936       also have AttachFile action in menu.
  2937     * Fixed wrong match count in search results, find all matches in page 
  2938       titles, show all matches in contents in some rare cases.
  2939     * Run about 200% faster with long running processes (standalone, Twisted), 
  2940       about 20% faster with cgi, by better internal data handling in wikidicts.
  2941     * On SF, the dict files use utf-8 encoding now. We included them also in
  2942       distribution, see contrib/dict/.
  2943     * Fixed permissions to shared template stuff.
  2944     * Speeded up search, fixed wrong match counts.
  2945     * Speeded up internal data handling (wikidicts).
  2946     * Fixed rare unicode error after deleting a page (reported only on SuSE
  2947       Linux 9.0 / Python 2.3.0).
  2948     * Fixed file permissions of files in the data dir.  
  2949     * Fixed some cosmetic problems in migration scripts and use sys.path.insert
  2950       to get latest moin code when executing them.
  2952 Other Changes:
  2954     * Improved docs, system and help pages.
  2955     * Updated translation files.
  2957 Known Bugs:
  2959     * Internet Explorer renders our HTML/CSS in a suboptimal way.
  2960       (MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/InternetExplorer)
  2961       Workaround: use a non-broken browser like FireFox / Mozilla.
  2962       Fixed in MoinMoin 1.3.2.
  2963     * Passwords using non-ascii do not work.
  2964       (MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/NonAsciiPasswordsBroken)
  2965     * The TOC macro is broken partly.
  2966       (MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsBrokenForIncludedPages,
  2967        MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsLacksLinks)

  2971 Version 1.3.0 (2004-12-06, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-400)
  2973     As you see from the length of the 1.3 changes below, 1.3 is a major(!)
  2974     upgrade. We could have also named it "2.0", but we decided against.
  2975     So take the time for reading the informations thoroughly and do the
  2976     migration exactly as we tell you - this is no 5 minutes upgrade!
  2978     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2979     !!! We heavily changed configuration, data encoding, dir layout:    !!!
  2980     !!!  * the default encoding changed to utf-8.                       !!!
  2981     !!!  * also, we changed the escaping for special chars to %XX%YY in !!!
  2982     !!!    URL and (xxyy) in file system.                               !!!
  2983     !!!  * layout of data dir changed completely                        !!!
  2984     !!! If you upgrade an existing wiki, you must run the migration     !!!
  2985     !!! scripts or you will get data corruption or other problems.      !!!
  2986     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  2988     HINT: Upgrading your wiki - critical information
  2990       If you are NOT starting from scratch, you MUST convert your existing
  2991       data - see README.migration for details.
  2993       If you use ##language: xx comments on your OWN pages, you should also run
  2994       repair_language script. Not needed for help/system pages as we already
  2995       have done that for you.
  2997       MoinMoin uses Unicode internally now (UCS-2 with 16 bits or UCS-4 with
  2998       32 bits, depending on your Python installation). The encoding used
  2999       for page files and html output is set by config.charset.
  3001       Moin 1.3 uses utf-8 encoding only, there is NO SUPPORT for using a
  3002       charset different from utf-8 with 1.3. If you try, you are on your own.
  3004     Directory layout
  3006       Directory layout was heavily changed. Each page now is a directory,
  3007       containing page revisions, attachments, cache files and edit-log.
  3009       You can delete a page or move a page from one wiki to another
  3010       easily. Look at the wiki/data directory to see.
  3012       Example:
  3013         old: data/text/FrontPage
  3014         new: data/pages/FrontPage/revisions/00000042
  3015              data/pages/FrontPage/current (contains: 00000042)
  3016         old: data/backup/FrontPage.xxxxxxxx
  3017         new: data/pages/FrontPage/revisions/00000023
  3019       For cleaning up cache files, use MoinMoin/scripts/ 
  3020       (see comments in script).
  3022    Python / Libs
  3024       * For using RSS, you need to have PyXML installed:
  3025         Python 2.4*   -> PyXML 0.8.4 (cvs version)
  3026         Python 2.3.x  -> PyXML 0.8.3
  3027         Python 2.2.2+ -> ???
  3028         This will also make "Live Bookmarks" of Mozilla Firefox working.
  3029         New: if you don't have PyXML installed, the RSS icon on RecentChanges
  3030         will not be displayed any more. Python with no PyXML installed
  3031         generates invalid RSS XML.
  3033    Page names handling
  3035       * Handling of special characters in file names changed from _xx format
  3036         to (xx...) format.
  3037       * In URLs, moin now uses %xx%yy quoting, (because this is supported by 
  3038         browsers), and sub pages use "/" instead of the ugly "_2f".
  3039       * Underscore character "_" is used now as a space character " " both 
  3040         in file names and URLs. " " and "_" will be handled equivalent at most
  3041         places in the future (represented as "_", rendered as " ").
  3042       * To prevent wiki abuse and user typing errors, page names are normalized 
  3043         in URLs, query strings, the "go" box and when renaming pages. This 
  3044         include leading, trailing and multiple slashes and white space. Certain 
  3045         invisible unicode characters are removed from page names.
  3046       * Group page names are restricted even more, any non unicode alpha-numeric
  3047         character is removed. This is done to enable changing acl syntax in 
  3048         the future. The restriction might be loosen on future versions.
  3049       * You can edit config.page_invalid_chars_regex to control which characters
  3050         are allowed in page names (Changing it is not supported).
  3051       * When you enter page name, it is normalized and you are redirected to
  3052         the normalized page, or if nothing left (e.g '/////'), to FrontPage.
  3053       * When renaming a page to a name that can be normalized to an empty string,
  3054         the new page name will be "EmptyName" and the user will not get an
  3055         error message.
  3057    Underlay directory
  3059      * Pages (especially system and help pages) are now located in an underlay
  3060        directory (data_underlay_dir). You will see the pages there if they are
  3061        NOT covered (overlayed) by a page in the normal pages directory
  3062        (as set using data_dir).
  3063        MAKE SURE THAT data_underlay_dir IS CORRECT OR YOU WILL SEE MANY EMPTY
  3064        PAGES ONLY IN A NEW WIKI.
  3065      * If you edit a page that is shown from underlay directory, it will be
  3066        copied to the normal page directory on save (copy-on-write).
  3067      * You can use one copy of the underlay directory shared by many
  3068        wiki instances. Each wiki will then have only your local, self-made
  3069        wiki pages in its data directory, and only system and help pages in the
  3070        single, shared underlay directory - this simplifies upgrades a lot.
  3071      * It is recommended to keep your underlay system and help pages immutable
  3072        using acl, so you can upgrade your wiki easily. The default help and
  3073        system pages already have those ACLs (using MoinPagesEditorGroup).
  3074      * Do not forget to remove your old help and system pages after migrating
  3075        your wiki. We don't provide a script for that as that would be
  3076        dangerous for edited pages. Just use some file manager (e.g. mc) to
  3077        clean the data/pages/ directory. As soon as you have removed the
  3078        system pages there, you will see the new pages in the underlay dir.
  3079        See the EditedSystemPages page for a list of pages that exist in both
  3080        data and underlay directory (use this page as admin!).
  3082        When updating from 1.2 or lower to 1.3 or higher, you will want to
  3083        clean out the copies of the system pages in your {{{wiki/data}}}
  3084        directory. All of these pages will now reside in the underlay
  3085        directory. If you have system pages from 1.2 or lower in your
  3086        wiki/data/ directory, they will overshadow the more up-to-date
  3087        documentation. This can be done using the following manual procedure:
  3088        1. You have just converted from 1.2 or lower to post-1.3.
  3089        2. Go to your wiki's EditedSystemPages.
  3090        3. Find all the pages that are MoinMoin system or help pages. You will
  3091           know if it is one of those pages because it is not your page.
  3092        4. Check if it is okay to delete by either:
  3093           1. Using the this page "info" link and check the Revision History to
  3094              see if it is greater than 1. If so, there are modifications, so do
  3095              not delete the page and evaluate the modifications to see if they
  3096              are necessary.
  3097           2. Using your file browser (Windows Explorer, etc) to go to your
  3098              wiki/data/<<systemPage>>/revisions/ directory and to see if there
  3099              are no modifications. If there are, do not delete the page and
  3100              evaluate the modifications to see if they are necessary.
  3101        5. Delete that wiki/data/<<systemPage>> using your file browser.
  3103     Multiple languages
  3105       * New file name quoting method allow 50% longer page names in languages
  3106         that use more than one byte per character, like Hebrew, Korean etc.
  3107       * Configuration file uses 'utf-8' encoding now. Certain values that are
  3108         marked with [Unicode] can use any character in your language. Examples 
  3109         are page names in navi_bar, page types regular expressions and site name.
  3110       * For configuration examples adopted to your language, check ConfigMarket 
  3111         in the MoinMoin wiki.
  3112       * The system and help pages that come with moin are now in utf-8.
  3113       * MissingPage system page localized, should display in your language.
  3114       * We did many i18n (translation) updates.
  3115       * CSS file use utf-8 encoding. User css is also expected to be utf-8.
  3116         This is relevant only if you use non-ASCII values in the CSS file.
  3117       * config.upperletters and config.lowerletters were removed.
  3118         We now use a pre-made ucs-2 spanning set and you usually don't have to
  3119         change it. See MoinMoin/util/ if you're interested.
  3120       * ACL works with any user name or group name in any language, even names 
  3121         with spaces.
  3122       * Now you can use any charset in config.charset. Note: only utf-8 is 
  3123         a supported configuration!
  3124       * Improved url handling, now creating pages directly from the browser 
  3125         url box with non-ascii names works in most cases, even when 
  3126         config.charset is not utf-8.
  3127       * When using non-utf-8 config.charset, characters in URLs that does
  3128         fit in the charsets are replaced with "?" (instead of crashing).
  3129       * All themes and most macros and actions are Right to Left friendly.
  3130         Full RTL support planned for 1.3 release.
  3131       * If page language is specified with #language processing instruction
  3132         the page is displayed in the correct direction. Pages without
  3133         language are displayed using the wiki default_lang.
  3135     Multiple configurations
  3137       * You can run multiple wikis from the same wiki directory or server. 
  3138         For example, you can run one Twisted server that serve multiple wikis, 
  3139         instead of running multiple servers. Samples of the new configuration
  3140         are supplied in wiki/config/*.
  3141       * You can't just use your old file. It is now called
  3142 and the config variables now have to be in a class
  3143         "Config" and that class must inherit from
  3144         MoinMoin.multiconfig.DefaultConfig - see the provided
  3145         sample for details.
  3146         This is very useful, e.g. you could derive a GermanConfig from
  3147         DefaultConfig. After that, you can derive configs for wikiA and wikiB
  3148         from that GermanConfig.
  3149       * contains a mapping attribute called "wikis" with pairs of
  3150         wikiconfig module name and regular expression. The regular expression
  3151         is matched against the URL of the request and the first matching entry
  3152         determines the config module to be imported by MoinMoin.
  3153       * If you use's "wikis" mapping, then any wiki has a private
  3154         config module, named after the wiki - e.g. wiki named moinmoin would
  3155         use
  3156       * If you only have a single wiki, you do not need just make 
  3157         a and it will be used no matter what URL is requested. 
  3158       * There is one common global "config" that holds sitewide settings (like
  3159         umask or charset) - you do not need to change settings there.
  3160         This file is located in the MoinMoin code: MoinMoin/
  3162     General configuration
  3164       * SecurityPolicy now uses "write" instead of "edit" (so it is may.write
  3165         now). This is to get it in sync with ACLs.
  3166       * SecurityPolicy now automatically can use everything in acl_rights_valid.
  3167       * There is a new config option "config_check_enabled". It will warn about
  3168         any unknown variable name (probably typo) to stderr or error.log. 
  3169         If something doesn't work at all and changing the config does no 
  3170         difference, switch it on and look at the error message. 
  3171       * The sample config file comes with config_check_enabled = 1. If you 
  3172         introduce additional variables yourself, you definitely want to switch 
  3173         that check off or it will fill your log.
  3174       * If you define "page_front_page" variable, this name will show in the 
  3175         navigation bar now, instead of the default "FrontPage".
  3177     New search engine
  3179      * Full text and title search do support multiple search terms now - 
  3180        see HelpOnSearching for details.
  3181      * Regular expressions are still supported but have to be turned on per
  3182        search term. Search terms in macros using regular expressions will have
  3183        to be fixed.
  3184      * The URL interface of the search engine has also changed. Links that 
  3185        point directly to search actions may be broken.
  3187     User names
  3189       * User names can not use group names, even if ACLs are not enabled.
  3190         This will prevent error later, if you start to use acl in the future
  3191         (acl is going to be mandatory in 1.5).
  3192       * User names are not restricted any more to only CamelCase. 
  3193       * To prevent imposing as other users, leading, trailing and multiple 
  3194         whitespace in user names is not allowed. Only Unicode alpha numeric 
  3195         characters are allowed, with optional one space character between 
  3196         words.
  3197       * When a user name with a group name or "bad" name is trying to 
  3198         access the wiki, he is redirected to the UserPreferences page and 
  3199         asked to create a new account.
  3200       * When trying to login or create a new account with a bad name, 
  3201         correct error message is displayed in all cases.   
  3203     CGI
  3205       * You can not use your old moin.cgi file, as we removed 
  3206         (was deprecated since 1.2). Copy the new file from the server dir.     
  3208     Moin servers - Twisted and standalone
  3210       * Configuration self checking on startup. Will raise an error in case
  3211         of bad configuration or non-accessible directories.
  3212       * Both use shorter and identical configuration options.
  3213       * Server scripts contain detailed comments and examples.
  3214       * Configuration defaults changed to fit most users.
  3215       * There is memory profiler option for debugging, switched off by default.
  3216       * If you perform a standard install, server scripts should run out
  3217         of the box or with minimal change.
  3219     Twisted server
  3221       * All code moved into the new server package, the server script
  3222         contains only configuration options.
  3223       * Listen to more than one interface with "interfaces" list.
  3224       * Code updated to new Twisted API.
  3225       * Use mointwisted script to start and stop the server, using 
  3226         "mointwisted start" and "mointwisted stop".
  3227       * The Twisted server runs as daemon by default.
  3228       * All moin Twisted files are called now mointwisted instead of 
  3229         moin_twisted.
  3230       * Fixed getting username from Twisted request (http auth)
  3232     Standalone server
  3234       * Configuration moved from to
  3235       * If run as root, you can set both user and group for the server.
  3236       * Can use logfile instead of logging to stderr.
  3237       * Fixed missing unquoting of query string (caused problems in rare cases).
  3239     mod_python server
  3241      * moin_modpy server files renamed to moinmodpy.
  3243     Wiki Markup
  3245      * '''strong''', ''em'' and __underline__ have now paragraph scope. You can
  3246        set these attributes on words level. For multiple paragraphs, wrap each 
  3247        with needed markup.
  3248      * If you leave unclosed ''', '' and __  markup, its is closed when the 
  3249        paragraph ends.
  3251     User interface
  3253      * Due to many changes in CSS files, the wiki may look "broken" until
  3254        your reload once or twice, or empty your browser cache.
  3255      * The "Send mail notification" checkbox is replaced by "Trivial change"
  3256        checkbox. The default behavior did not change - regular edit is not
  3257        a trivial change, and mail will be sent to subscribes. If you check
  3258        trivial change, mail will be sent only to users who selected to 
  3259        get trivial changes in their user preferences.
  3260      * New theme "modern" has been added, and used as default theme. 
  3261      * classic and rightsidebar improved.
  3262      * viewonly theme removed, as any theme can be use now as viewonly
  3263        by using #acl All:read in the wikiconfig.
  3264      * All themes use new navibar, displaying both wiki links, user links
  3265        and the current page.
  3266      * navibar and pagetrail use now shortened page names, so very long
  3267        names does not break the interface visually.
  3268      * All themes have improved search interface at the top of the window.
  3269      * Only avaiable actions are displayed, so most situations when a user
  3270        try to do something he can't do are prevented.
  3271      * When creating a new page, no action is available until the page 
  3272        is created. You can't attach files to non-existing page any more.
  3273      * Non registered users get a "login" link. Registered uses get
  3274        "username" link to their home page, and "user preferences" link.
  3275      * Messages more clear using bold type, designed by css.
  3276      * Few useless messages removed (but there are many more)
  3277      * Default wiki logo uses the wiki name instead of the MoinMoin troll 
  3278        logo.
  3280     Other fixes and changes
  3282      * Most generated html code is valid "html 4 strict". There are still
  3283        some problems that still have to be fixed, mainly macros, table
  3284        attributes, and inline markup crossing (<a><b></a></b>).
  3285      * WantedPages can include and exclude system pages, which makes it 
  3286        much more useful.
  3287      * Fixed a bug in TitleIndex where not all system pages are excluded.    
  3288      * RenamePage action now renames everything, including backups, page
  3289        history, attachments. It does not change toplevel editlog, though.
  3290        After you rename a page, you are redirected to the new page.
  3291      * Syntax colorization supports more languages (Java, C++, Pascal)
  3292      * Inline: display of attachments was extended. A Parser now knows which
  3293        extensions it can handle.
  3294      * TableOfContents and Include macros now cooperate a bit better. There
  3295        are still problems with multiple Includes of the same page.
  3296      * Excluded actions at bottom of page are not displayed any more.   
  3297      * Editor: removed the columns size setting, just using 100% of browser
  3298        window width (it didn't work because of that anyway). Also removed that
  3299        "reduce editor size" link at top of editor as you would lose your
  3300        changes when using it.
  3301      * Removed the option to choose text smileys instead of images, this made
  3302        more trouble than it was worth. The text version is still given in ALT
  3303        attribute.
  3304      * Moved stuff from contribution/ to MacroMarket page on MoinMoin wiki
  3305      * Some nasty people try to use a running moin as a proxy (at least they
  3306        did on, maybe due to the magic port
  3307        number). We changed the code to check for that and just return 403
  3308        in that case. Moin can not be used as a proxy anyway.
  3309      * moin.cgi?test was removed in favor of a new buildin test
  3310        action. It works for all deployments, just use ?action=test.
  3311      * Sending mail does use tls if server supports it.
  3313     3rd party developer notes
  3315      * Themes should be now sub class of MoinMoin.theme.ThemeBase. Sub
  3316        classes will get automatically all new improved user interface
  3317        elements for free.
  3318      * Theme authors should update their theme for 1.3. Some keys removed
  3319        from them dict. See ThemeBase class in MoinMoin/theme/ 
  3320      * Actions writers should call request.setContentLangauge with the 
  3321        correct language used by the action. This enable themes and other
  3322        code to use correct direction.
  3323      * The Formatter interface was changed. Formatters and parsers using 
  3324        the formatter interface have to be adjusted.
  3325      * started deprecation of Processors: they are still recognized, but
  3326        implementors should start to rewrite their Processors as Parsers.
  3327        A processor with the same name as a parser in a pre #! section is
  3328        currently preferred. This will change in the next release.
  3330     Deprecation notes
  3332      * Processors are deprecated, see section above.
  3334      * Using the cookie (or the login url with ID) only and not setting (or
  3335        setting and not remembering) your email/password in UserPreferences
  3336        is DEPRECATED. Those quite unsecure methods will likely be dropped
  3337        in next moin version.
  3339      * Operating with acl_enabled = 0 is also DEPRECATED. Due to some other
  3340        improvements planned, we will have to operate with ACLs enabled ONLY
  3341        in a future moin version, so this setting will likely be dropped.
  3342        So clean up your user accounts (see and switch ACLs
  3343        on NOW.
  3344        There are no drawbacks, so you will like it. Having ACLs enabled
  3345        doesn't mean you really have to USE them on wiki pages...
  3347      * allow_extended_names = 0 is deprecated (default was/is 1).
  3348        Future versions will be able to use extended names (aka free links) in
  3349        any case and the config setting will be removed.
  3351      * allow_subpages = 0 is deprecated (default was/is 1).
  3352        Future versions will be able to use subpages in any case and the config
  3353        setting will be removed.
  3355      * attachments = {...} - we would like to remove that setting because of
  3356        several reasons:
  3357        * when not being extremely careful, this can easily lead to security
  3358          problems (like when uploading a .php exploit and then executing it
  3359          by accessing it directly via web server)
  3360        * makes code more complicated - code that we want to change completely
  3361          in next version
  3362        If you need that feature, speak up now and tell us your reasons WHY you
  3363        need it.
  3366 Version 1.2.4 (2004-10-23, Revision 1.187)
  3368 This will probably be the last 1.2.x release as we are soon doing release
  3369 candidates for 1.3 release (with big internal changes) and are expecting
  3370 release 1.3 in december 2004.
  3372 Fixes:
  3373     * fixed "None" pagename bug in fullsearch/titlesearch
  3374     * fixed projection CSS usage
  3375     * the compiled page is removed when a page is deleted, so no ghost page
  3376       appears after deletion
  3377     * fixed AbandonedPages day-break problem
  3378     * fixed [[GetVal(WikiDict,key)]]
  3379     * the msg box is now outside content div on PageEditor, too
  3380     * privacy fix for email notifications: you don't see other email addresses
  3381       in To: any more. mail_from is now also used for To: header field, but
  3382       we don't really send email to that address.
  3383     * privacy fix for /MoinEditorBackup pages that were made on previews of
  3384       pages that were not saved in the end
  3385     * fix double content div on PageEditor preview
  3387 Other changes:
  3388     * workaround for broken Microsoft Internet Explorer, the page editor now
  3389       stops expanding to the right (e.g. with rightsidebar theme).
  3390       Nevertheless it is a very good idea to use a non-broken and more secure
  3391       browser like Mozilla, Firefox or Opera!
  3393     * from import SecurityPolicy in your
  3394 will protect your wiki from at least the known spammers.
  3395       See MoinMoin:AntiSpamGlobalSolution for details.
  3397     * xmlrpc plugin for usage logging, currently used for antispam accesses
  3399     * (re-)added configurable meta tags:
  3400         * html_head_queries = '''<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">\n'''
  3401         * html_head_posts   = '''<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">\n'''
  3402         * html_head_index   = '''<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">\n'''
  3403         * html_head_normal  = '''<meta name="robots" content="index,nofollow">\n'''
  3405     * i18n updates/fixes
  3407     * New UserPreferences switch:
  3408       you may subscribe to trivial changes (when you want to be notified about ALL
  3409       changes to pages, even if the author deselected to send notifications).
  3411     * New AttachList and AttachInfo macros - thanks to Nigel Metheringham and
  3412       Jacob Cohen.
  3414 Version 1.2.3 (2004-07-21, Revision 1.186)
  3416 Fixes:
  3417     * fixed NameError "UnpicklingError" in
  3418     * fixed version number in moin.spec
  3419     * reverts done by bots or leechers
  3420       There was a bad, old bug that triggered if you did not use ACLs. In that
  3421       case, moin used some simple (but wrong and incomplete) function to
  3422       determine what a user (or bot) may do or may not do. The function is now
  3423       fixed to allow only read and write to anon users, and only delete and
  3424       revert to known users additionally - and disallow everything else.
  3425     * avoid creation of unneccessary pages/* directories
  3426     * removed double content divs in general info and history info pages
  3427     * fixed wiki xmlrpc getPageHTML
  3428     * fixed rightsidebar logout URL, also fixed top banner to link to FrontPage
  3429     * use config.page_front_page and .page_title_index for robots meta tag
  3430       (whether it uses index,follow or index,nofollow), not hardcoded english
  3431       page names
  3432     * ACL security fix for PageEditor, thanks to Dr. Pleger for reporting
  3433     * default options for new users are same as for anon users
  3435 Version 1.2.2 (2004-06-06, Revision 1.185)
  3437 Fixes:
  3438     * python related:
  3439      * own copy of difflib removed
  3440        Until moin 1.2.1 we had our own copy of python 2.2.3's difflib coming
  3441        with moin. This was to work around some problems with broken older 2.2
  3442        python installations. We removed this now because if you have py 2.3,
  3443        there is even a better difflib coming with python (and that fixes an
  3444        extremely slow diff calculation happening in some rare cases).
  3445        So the good news is that when you run python 2.3, you don't need to do
  3446        anything and it will run great. If you run python 2.2.3, it will mostly
  3447        work good and you also don't need to do anything. The bad news is that
  3448        if you run an old and broken 2.2 installation (2.2.1, maybe 2.2.2) you
  3449        will have to fix it on your own (just copy from python 2.2.3
  3450        over to your python 2.2.x installation).
  3451        But better upgrade to python 2.3 (for debian woody, there's a backport),
  3452        as 2.3 generally runs better and faster than 2.2.
  3453      * scripts changed to use #!/usr/bin/env python (not /usr/bin/python2.2)
  3455     * user accounts and ACLs:
  3456      * we now require the user to specify a password for a new account (you
  3457        were not able to login without a password anyway)
  3458      * it is not allowed any more to create user accounts with user names
  3459        matching config.page_group_regex - please check manually that you do
  3460        not already have such users existing (like a user named "AdminGroup"):
  3461        cd data/user ; grep name=.*Group *  # there should be no output!
  3462      * subscription email sending now honours ACLs correctly
  3464     * markup / rendering / user interface fixes:
  3465      * fixed merging multiple lines indented by the same amount of blanks
  3466      * ## comments don't break tables in two parts
  3467      * added a "remove bookmark" link to RecentChanges
  3468      * fixed action=titleindex (added \n after each entry)
  3470     * RSS fixes:
  3471      * non-ASCII characters should work now
  3472      * RSS feed (Recentchanges?action=rss_rc) gives UTC timestamps now
  3473      * removed attribute breaking RSS feed on RecentChanges
  3475     * better email generation:
  3476      * if you use python >=2.2.2, we add a Message-ID header to emails
  3477      * if you use python 2.2.1, there is no email.Header. Instead of crashing
  3478        (like previous moin 1.2.x releases), we just use the subject "as is" in
  3479        that case. If it is not ASCII, this is not standards compliant.
  3480      * If you have >=2.2.2 it will use email.Header to make standards compliant
  3481        subject lines.
  3482      * use config.mail_from as sender address when sending "lost my password"
  3483        emails
  3485     * file attachments:
  3486      * fixed for standalone server
  3487      * attachment URLs (when handled by moin) don't include server name
  3488      * fixed some wrong &amp;amp; in html src
  3490     * better themeability:
  3491      * some entries in dict "d" where only present in header theme calls, some
  3492        only in footer theme calls. Now almost all is present in both calls.
  3493      * added some missing "content" divs so sidebar themes look better
  3495     * fixed some crashes producing backtraces:
  3496      * no IOError when diffing against deleted page
  3497      * no backtrace in xml footnote generation
  3498      * no SystemInfo crash when no editlog exists in new wikis
  3499      * xmlrpc.getRecentChanges fixed
  3501     * MoinMoin.util.filesys.rename is now a wrapper around os.rename that
  3502       fixes os.rename on broken win32 api semantics
  3504 Other Changes:
  3505     * saving traffic and load by improved robot meta tag generation:
  3506      * "noindex,nofollow" on queries and POSTs
  3507      * "index,follow" on FrontPage and TitleIndex (give robots a chance ;))
  3508      * "index,nofollow" on all other pages (hopefully saving lots of senseless
  3509        requests for page?action=...) 
  3510      * removed config.html_head_queries (was used for same stuff)
  3511     * added russian i18n (utf-8)
  3512     * misc. other translation updates / fixes
  3513     * added rightsidebar theme
  3514     * TitleIndex now folds case, so "APage" and "anotherPage" are both under
  3515       letter "A".
  3516     * added macro/ - it calculates the hits each page gets since
  3517       beginning of logging
  3520     * Full text and title search do now support multiple search terms - 
  3521       see HelpOnSearching for details
  3523     * The Formatter interface was changed. Formatter and parser using 
  3524       the formatter interface have to be adjusted.
  3526 Version 1.2.1 (2004-03-08, Revision 1.184)
  3528 Fixes:
  3529     * minimum requirement to run moin 1.2/1.2.1 is python 2.2.2
  3530      * not: 2.2(.0), as this does not have True/False
  3531      * not: 2.2.1, as this does not have email.Header. You maybe can work
  3532        around that one by:
  3533       * getting the python 2.2.x (x>=2) /usr/lib/python2.2/email directory
  3534       * putting it into directory 'x' (whereever you like)
  3535       * doing a sys.path[0:0] = ['x'] in moin.cgi [or other appropriate place]
  3536       No guarantee, this is untested.
  3537     * Twisted: the http headers missed the charset data, fixed
  3538     * mod_python: fixes for mod_python 2.7
  3539     * wiki/data/plugin/ added - fixes not working plugin modules
  3540     * plugin processors work now, too
  3541     * fixed displaying non-existent translations of SiteNavigation in footer
  3542     * fixed zh-tw iso name (wrong zh_tw -> correct zh-tw)
  3543     * fixed reversed diffs in RecentChanges RSS
  3544     * fixed "last change" info in footer (wasn't updated)
  3545     * fixed event.log missing pagename (and other) information
  3546     * fixed horizontal line thickness >1
  3547     * fixed running from CVS workdir
  3548     * fixed crash when doing action=info on first revision of a page
  3549     * fixed hostname truncation in footer
  3550     * minor css fixes
  3551     * fixed clear msg links (they missed quoting, leading to strange page
  3552       names when you click on some of them)
  3553     * fixed python colorizer processor
  3554     * fixed quoting of stats cache filenames
  3555     * catched "bad marshal data" error when switching python versions
  3557 Other changes:
  3558     * updated danish (da) i18n
  3559     * updated japanese (ja) i18n
  3560     * added serbian (sr) i18n
  3561     * added chinese (zh) i18n
  3562     * added a simple "viewonly" theme based on classic theme - you can use
  3563       this as default theme, so anonymous users won't get the usual wiki stuff,
  3564       but a far simpler (and less powerful) user interface.
  3565       It also displays the navibar at the left side.
  3566     * added moin.spec for building RPMs
  3567     * included MoinMoin/i18n/* into distribution archive (nice for translators)
  3568     * included some stuff under MoinMoin/scripts - xmlrpc-tools and account
  3569       checking stuff. removed some version control clutter from the dist
  3570       archive, too.
  3572     * code colorization was refactored and some new languages (Java, C++,
  3573       Pascal) where added.
  3574     * inline: display of attachments was extended. A Parser now knows which
  3575       extensions it can handle.
  3577 Version 1.2 (2004-02-20, Revision 1.183)
  3579 New features:
  3580     * MoinMoin now requires Python >=2.2.2., we recommend to use Python >=2.3.2
  3581       (with 2.3.x, MoinMoin runs about 20-30% faster).
  3582     * by refactoring request processing, we made it possible to run moin under
  3583       persistent environments:
  3584         * twisted-web (
  3585         * (use for starting this mini server)
  3586         * mod_python
  3587         * FastCGI
  3588       Of course, CGI is still possible.
  3589     * wiki pages will be compiled to bytecode now (by default), so no need for
  3590       slow parsing/formatting on every view ("WASP", see caching_formats)
  3591     * when using a persistent environment (like twisted) and WASP, you get up
  3592       to 20x speed - compared to CGI and moin 1.1
  3593     * added support for diffs between arbitrary revisions.
  3594     * removed requirement of the external diff utility
  3595     * config.auth_http_enabled (defaults to 0) - use this to enable moin
  3596       getting your authenticated user name from apache (http basic auth,
  3597       htpasswd) - if you enable this, your basic auth username has to be the
  3598       same as your wiki username.
  3599       Should work with CGI, FCGI and maybe even with mod_python.
  3600       Does not change behaviour of moin under twisted or standalone server.
  3601     * config.tz_offset = 0.0 sets a default timezone offset (in hours
  3602       from UTC)
  3603     * config.cookie_lifetime (int, in hours, default 12) sets the lifetime of
  3604       the MOIN_ID cookie:
  3605         == 0  --> cookie will live forever (no matter what user has configured!)
  3606         > 0   --> cookie will live for n hours (or forever when "remember_me")
  3607         < 0   --> cookie will live for -n hours (forced, ignore "remember_me"!)
  3608     * added themeing and some themes (if you improve the existing themes or
  3609       make nice new ones, please contribute your stuff!). The default theme is
  3610       set by config.theme_default (and defaults to 'classic').
  3611     * now supporting plugin directory for parsers, processors, themes, xmlrpc.
  3612     * action=info now defaults to showing page revision history again
  3613     * all actions accessing the logfile (as RecentChanges or history) are now
  3614       much faster
  3615     * #refresh processing instruction, config.refresh
  3616         * config.refresh = (minimum_delay, target_allowed)
  3617             * minimum delay is the minimum waiting time (in seconds) allowed
  3618             * target_allowed is either 'internal' or 'external', depending on
  3619               whether you want to allow only internal redirects or also
  3620               external ones. For internal redirects, just use the Wiki pagename,
  3621               for external, use http://... url.
  3622         * #refresh 3                    == refresh this page every 3 seconds
  3623         * #refresh 5 FrontPage          == internal redirect to FrontPage in 5s
  3624         * #refresh 5 == redirect to google in 5s
  3625       Use very carefully! Allowing a low minimum_delay and putting a #refresh
  3626       on RecentChanges might slow down your wiki significantly, when some
  3627       people just let their browser refresh and refresh again. Also, it does
  3628       cause quite some traffic long-term. So better do not use this without
  3629       good reason! Default is None (switched off).
  3630     * hide most UserPreferences options before user has logged in, less
  3631       confusing for new users
  3632     * "config.page_dict_regex" defines what pages are dictionary definitions
  3633       Currently dictionaries are used for UserHomePage/MyDict where you can
  3634       define key:: value pairs that get processed like @DATE@ expansion when
  3635       saving a page. The 2 "@" will be added to your keys automatically.
  3636       Please do not use @xxx@ strings on the right side (value), results may
  3637       vary if you do.
  3638       You can also access wiki dictionaries by using the internal macro
  3639       [[GetVal(page,key)]]" - that will go to page "page" and return the
  3640       value (right side) corresponding to "key".
  3641       Implementation note: groups are a subset of the dictionary functionality.
  3642     * standalone server should work now (see server/, so you don't
  3643       need to setup apache or twisted for a local personal wiki, you only need
  3644       python and moin for that now, no additional stuff any more!
  3645     * if you run your wiki with charset = "utf-8" (the default is still
  3646       iso8859-1), you might want to have a look at contributions/utf8-pages/
  3647       to see if there are already translated system pages for your language.
  3649 Fixes:
  3650     * new importPlugin routine (the old one didn't work correctly)
  3651     * removed 0xA0 characters breaking utf-8
  3652     * system page recognition now uses wiki groups (see AllSystemPagesGroup),
  3653       fixing the long-time broken system page exclusion on TitleIndex.
  3654     * mostly HTML 4.01 Strict compliant HTML
  3655     * design is done by CSS now, HTML is semantic markup only 
  3656     * removed target attribute from links, also [^NewWindow] markup - this
  3657       is a HTML 3.2 feature and not valid in HTML 4.01
  3658     * updated TWikiDrawPlugin to 20021003 version, with further modifications
  3659       including source. It can draw imagemaps now and saves PNG. On display a
  3660       GIF will be searched if no PNG is found. We recommend changing all GIFs
  3661       to indexed PNGs cause this fallback might disappear in later versions.
  3663       Sample code using bash and ImageMagick (be sure you know what you do):
  3664       for draw in `find /path/to/wiki/data -name \*.draw`; do
  3665         file=`dirname $draw`/`basename $draw .draw`
  3666         if [ -e "${file}.gif" ]; then
  3667           echo "Converting ${file}.gif to ${file}.png"
  3668           convert "${file}.gif" "${file}.png"
  3669         fi
  3670       done
  3672     * fixed email headers and encoding
  3673     * Changed moin-usercheck to adhere to scripting standards; no
  3674       proprietary config changes needed any more (added --config);
  3675       --wikinames is now part of the usage message.
  3676     * config.umask now defaults to 0770 - if you give world r/w access, ACLs
  3677       could be rather pointless...
  3679 Removed config variables:
  3680     * external_diff (not needed any more, we have internal diff now)
  3681     * shared_metadb (wasn't implemented for long - we will re-add it, when it is)
  3682     * title1/2 (please use page_header1/2)
  3683     * page_icons_up
  3685 Changed config variables:
  3686     * changed_time_fmt (removed some html and brackets around time from default)
  3687     * html_head (default is empty string now)
  3688     * page_footer1/2 (default is empty string now)
  3689     * page_icons (is now a list of icon names, not html any more)
  3690     * umask (default is 0770 now, not world r/w any more == more secure)
  3692 New config variables (see MoinMaster:HelpOnConfiguration):
  3693     * cookie_lifetime
  3694     * mail_login
  3695     * page_credits
  3696     * page_dict_regex
  3697     * page_group_regex
  3698     * page_header1/2
  3699     * page_iconbar 
  3700     * page_icons_table
  3701     * page_license_enabled
  3702     * page_license_page
  3703     * theme_default
  3704     * theme_force
  3705     * tz_offset 
  3707 Other:
  3708     * lots of internal code refactoring and optimization
  3709     * began moving src code documentation to epydoc, see "make epydoc"
  3710     * the URL for the RecentChanges RSS feed changed. It now only works with
  3711       ...?action=rss_rc.
  3713 Known problems:
  3714     * theme support is neither complete (although covering most important
  3715       stuff) nor perfect - work on that will continue...
  3716     * we removed some html from system messages (the boxes at top of page you
  3717       get after some actions), so it currently looks less nice than before.
  3718     * html is not completely validating and it is not xhtml - this will be
  3719       fixed as soon as we have the infrastructure for that (other parser, DOM)
  3720     * problems with rtl (right-to-left) languages, will be fixed in 1.3
  3721     * if you change moin_config or switch themes, moin will still use already
  3722       cached page content. For the config this can be fixed by touching
  3723       MoinMoin/ (or simply deleting everything in
  3724       data/cache/ If you get more annoyed by this than pleased by
  3725       caching speedup, you can also switch off caching (see docs on
  3726       caching_formats).
  3728 Themeing and HTML/CSS cleanup:
  3729     * Browsers with completely broken CSS support (like e.g. Netscape 4.x) are
  3730       no longer supported. If you still need to support them, do not upgrade to
  3731       moin 1.2. If you still use these browsers, we recommend that you upgrade
  3732       your browser first (Mozilla 1.5 has nice and standards compliant HTML and
  3733       CSS support and is available as Free Software for Windows, Linux and Mac).
  3734     * If you changed any html in code or by config you will have to check if it
  3735       still works. For the usual stuff, look into `MoinMoin/theme/`
  3736       and `classic/css/screen.css`. For config defaults of the html fragments,
  3737       read `MoinMoin/`. If you want to modify a theme, don't simply
  3738       change classic, but copy or subclass it under a new theme name.
  3739     * because of the new theme support the layout of the `htdocs` directory
  3740       changed:
  3741       * Instead of using icons under `img/` and css under `css/`, there will
  3742         be an additional `themename/` directory in between, e.g. `classic/img/`
  3743         and `classic/css/`. If you added own icons, you may have to copy them
  3744         to the themes directory.
  3745       * The filename of the CSS file has changed to the media type, so the
  3746         normal one used for screen output has changed name from `moinmoin.css`
  3747         to `screen.css`. There also were quite some changes and enhancements to
  3748         the CSS files, so better use the new ones.
  3749     * config.css_url was removed
  3751 Plugins:
  3752   * we use a new plugin loader that requires a correct `` file in
  3753     the plugin directories. See the directory `wiki/data/plugin/` in the
  3754     distribution archive and just copy it over to your wiki's plugin directory.
  3757 Version 1.1 (2003-11-29, Revision 1.178)
  3759 Version 1.1 requires Python 2.0 or higher, we recommend to use Python 2.2
  3760 (version 2.2.2 if that is available on your host) or even better >= 2.3.2
  3761 (with 2.3.x, MoinMoin runs about 20-30% faster).
  3763 New features:
  3764   Configuration:
  3765     * config.default_lang lets you set a default language for users not
  3766       having specified language in their browser or UserPreferences
  3767     * "config.page_category_regex" defines what pages are categories
  3768     * replaced `config.page_template_ending` by a more flexible setting
  3769       named `config.page_template_regex`
  3770     * the same with config.page_form_regex (was: page_form_ending)
  3771     * "config.page_group_regex" defines what pages are group definitions
  3772       Currently groups are used for "user groups" (see ACLs) and "page
  3773       groups" (see AllSystemPagesGroup).
  3774     * robot exclusion from all pages except the standard view action,
  3775       via the config.ua_spiders regex (reduces server load)
  3776     * "maxdepth" argument for the TableOfContents macro
  3777     * config.title1, config.title2, config.page_footer1,
  3778       config.page_footer2 can now be callables and will be called with
  3779       the "request" object as a single argument (note that you should
  3780       accept any keyword arguments in order to be compatible to future
  3781       changes)
  3782     * "config.html_pagetitle" allows you to set a specific HTML page
  3783       title (if not set, it defaults to "config.sitename")
  3784     * navi_bar / quicklinks can now contain free-form links, i.e.
  3785       entries of the form "[url linktext]" just like in wiki pages
  3786     * if a quick link starts with '^', it opens in a new window; help
  3787       now opens in a new window also
  3788     * `config.smileys` for user-defined smileys (default: `{}`) - a dict
  3789       with the markup as the key and a tuple of width, height, border, image
  3790       name as the value).
  3791     * `config.hosts_deny` to forbid access based on IP address
  3792     * `config.mail_login` can be set to username and password separated by
  3793       a space, e.g. "username userpass", if you need to use SMTP AUTH
  3794     * `config.edit_locking` can be set to None (old behaviour, no
  3795       locking), 'warn <timeout mins>' (warn about concurrent edits, but
  3796       do not enforce anything), or 'lock <timeout mins>' (strict locking)
  3797     * optionally showing a license text on editor page, use:
  3798       config.page_license_enabled = 1
  3799       Optionally use these to customize what is shown there:
  3800       config.page_license_text = "... your text ..."
  3801       config.page_license_page = "MyLicensePage"
  3802       See the default values in MoinMoin/ for details and
  3803       override them in, if needed.
  3804     * `config.shared_intermap` can be a list of filenames (instead of a
  3805       single string)
  3806     * If you have added your own `SecurityPolicy`, the class interface for
  3807       that has changed (see ``).
  3809   Authenticaton / Authorization:
  3810     * added ACL support, written by Gustavo Niemeyer of Conectiva and
  3811       Thomas Waldmann. See HelpOnAccessControlLists for more infos.
  3812       You should use MoinMoin/scripts/ before activating
  3813       ACLs or some users with bad or duplicate accounts might get into
  3814       trouble.
  3815     * A user account can be disabled using or
  3816       UserPreferences page. Disabling, but keeping it is good for edit
  3817       history.
  3818     * changed security default: deletion only available to known users
  3819     * support for Basic authentication (Apache style: AUTH_TYPE="Basic",
  3820       REMOTE_USER="WikiUserName"). If authentication is there, user
  3821       will be in ACL class "Trusted".
  3822     * support for username / password login
  3823       The username / password login will ONLY work, if you define a
  3824       password. With an empty password, username / password login is not
  3825       allowed due to security reasons. Passwords are stored encrypted
  3826       (format similar to Apache SHA) and can also be entered in the
  3827       UserPreferences form in this format. When requesting login
  3828       information by email, the password is also sent in this encrypted
  3829       format (use copy&paste to fill it in the form).
  3830       ...?action=userform?uid=<userid> is still possible, so if you have
  3831       bookmarks, they will still work). The input field for the ID was
  3832       dropped.
  3833       NOTE: using the userid for login purposes is DEPRECATED and might
  3834             be removed for better security soon.
  3835     * after logging in, you will get a cookie valid until midnight.
  3836       The next day, the cookie will expire and you will have to login
  3837       again. If you don't want this, you can check the "remember me
  3838       forever" option in UserPreferences.
  3839     * if the page file is read-only, you get a message (i.e. you can now
  3840       protect pages against changes if you're the wiki admin).
  3841       Note: you can do that easier using ACLs.
  3843   Markup / Macros / Actions:
  3844     * RandomQuote macro (and even parses Wiki markup now)
  3845     * `[[Navigation]]` macro for slides and subpage navigation
  3846     * [[ShowSmileys]] displays ALL smileys, including user-defined ones
  3847     * the Include macro has new parameters (from, to, sort, items) and
  3848       is able to include more than one page (via a regex pattern)
  3849     * `MailTo` macro for adding spam-safe email links to a page
  3850     * if a fancy link starts with '^' (i.e. if it has the form
  3851       "[^http:... ...]"), it's opened in a new window
  3852      * because of that, the NewWindow macro was removed from contrib
  3853     * "#pragma section-numbers 2" only displays section numbers for
  3854       headings of level 2 and up (similarly for 3 to 6)
  3855     * ../SubPageOfParent links
  3857   User interface:
  3858     * new fancy diffs
  3859     * Page creation shows LikePages that already exist
  3860     * editor shows the current size of the page
  3861     * editor returns to including page when editing an included page
  3862     * Visual indication we're on the editor page (new CSS style)
  3863     * selection to add categories to a page in the editor (use preview
  3864       button to add more than one category)
  3865     * if user has a homepage, a backup of save/preview text is saved as
  3866       a subpage UsersHomePage/MoinEditorBackup
  3867     * added "revert" link to PageInfo view (which makes DeletePage more
  3868       safe in public wikis, since you can easily revive deleted pages
  3869       via revert)
  3870     * Selection for logged in users (i.e. no bots) to extend the listing
  3871       of recent changes beyond the default limits
  3872     * Activated display of context for backlinks search
  3873     * Subscriber list shown on page info
  3874     * LikePages shows similar pages (using difflib.get_close_matches)
  3875     * last edit action is stored into "last-edited" file, and
  3876       displayed in the page footer
  3877     * reciprocal footnote linking (definition refers back to reference)
  3878     * "Ex-/Include system pages" link for title index
  3879       Note: system/help pages algorithm is still mostly broken.
  3880     * list items set apart by empty lines are now also set apart
  3881       visually (by adding the CSS class "gap" to <li>)
  3882     * "save" check for security.Permissions
  3883     * Added Spanish, Croatian and Danish system texts
  3884     * Added flag icons for the languages supported in "i18n"
  3885     * updated help and system pages, more translations, see also
  3886       AllSystemPagesGroup
  3887     * there was quite some work done on wiki xmlrpc v1 and v2 - it
  3888       basically works now.
  3890   Tools and other changes:
  3891     * moin-dump: New option "--page"
  3892     * there are some scripts MoinMoin/scripts/* using wiki xmlrpc for

  3927 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3928 Version 1.0 (2002-05-10, Revision 1.159)
  3931 should occur, a maintenance release will fix them.
  3933 Some optional features (like statistics) already require Python 2.0.
  3935 New features:
  3936     * security fix: "allow_xslt" has to be set to 1 in order to enable
  3937       XSLT processing; note that this defaults to 0 because XSLT is able
  3938       to insert arbitrary HTML into a wiki
  3939     * "action=content" for transclusion into static web pages; emits the
  3940       pure page content, without any <html>, <head>, or <body> tags
  3941     * "?action=links&mimetype=text/plain" works like MeatBall:LinkDatabase
  3942     * "Preferred language" and "Quick links" user settings
  3943     * Added "processor" concept, processors work on the data in "code
  3944       displays" and are called by a bangpath in the first line of data
  3945     * Processors: Colorize, CSV (see HelpOnProcessors)
  3946     * New icons: "{OK}", "(./)", "{X}", "{i}", "{1}", "{2}" and "{}"
  3947       (see HelpOnSmileys)
  3948     * FullSearch now displays context information for search hits
  3949     * DeletePage offers a textentry field for an optional comment
  3950     * Email notifications are sent in the user's language, if known from
  3951       the preferences
  3952     * @PAGE@ is substituted by the name of the current page (useful
  3953       for template pages)
  3955 Unfinished features:
  3956     * user defined forms
  3957     * XML export of all data in the wiki
  3958     * RST parser (you need to install docutils to use this)
  3959     * XMLRPC interface
  3961 Bugfixes:
  3962     * Syntax warning with Python 2.2 fixed
  3963     * Macro-generated pagelinks are no longer added to the list of links
  3964     * error codes returned by "diff" are reported
  3965     * fix for attachments on pages with non-USASCII names
  3966     * correct handling of spaces in attachment filenames and URLs
  3968 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  3969 Version 0.11 (2002-03-11, Revision 1.151)
  3971 Most important new features: file attachments, definition list markup
  3972 (glossaries), change notification via email, variable substitution when
  3973 saving pages, edit preview, and improved documentation.
  3975 Note that the RSS features require a recent PyXML (CVS or 0.7) due to
  3976 bugs in the namespace handling of xml.sax.saxutils in earlier versions.
  3977 This is (hopefully) automatically detected on every installation.
  3979 Statistical features are NOT designed to work with Python 1.5.2 and
  3980 require Python 2.0 or higher. Overall, MoinMoin 0.11 is not explicitely
  3981 tested for 1.5.2 compatibility.
  3983 New features:
  3984     * XML formatting now (most often) produces well-formed, and, depending
  3985       on proper layout of the wiki page, valid StyleBook XML
  3986     * Headers are now automatically numbered, unless you set the config
  3987       item 'show_section_numbers' to 0
  3988     * "#pragma section-numbers off" (or "0") switches that off explicitely,
  3989       and "on" or "1" enables numbering 
  3990     * Added a "contributions" directory for 3rd party extensions
  3991     * AttachFile action, contributed by Ken Sugino; note that you have
  3992       to enable this action because of the possibility of DoS attacks
  3993       (malicious uploads), by adding this to your moin_config:
  3994             allowed_actions = ['AttachFile']
  3995     * "attachment:" URL scheme allows access to attachments, to get files
  3996        from other pages use "attachment:WikiName/filename.ext".
  3997     * New macros: Date(unixtimestamp) and DateTime(unixtimestamp) to
  3998       display a timestamp according to system/user settings
  3999     * Variable substitution when a page is saved, note that saving
  4000       template pages does NOT expand variables. Supported are:
  4001         @DATE@      Current date in the system's format
  4002         @TIME@      Current date and time in the user's format
  4003         @USERNAME@  Just the user's name (or his domain/IP)
  4004         @USER@      Signature "-- loginname"
  4005         @SIG@       Dated Signature "-- loginname date time"
  4006         @MAILTO@    A fancy mailto: link with the user's data  
  4007     * Copied some new emoticons from PikiePikie
  4008         || {{{ :-? }}} || :-? || tongue.gif ||
  4009         || {{{ :\  }}} || :\  || ohwell.gif ||

  4014         || {{{ ;)) }}} || ;)) || lol.gif    ||
  4015     * AbandonedPages macro
  4016     * Added definition list markup: {{{<whitespace>term:: definition}}}
  4017     * Added email notification features contributed by Daniel Sa�    * SystemInfo: show "Entries in edit log"
  4018     * Added "RSS" icon to RecentChanges macro and code to generate a
  4019       RecentChanges RSS channel, see
  4021       for details
  4022     * Added config.sitename and config.interwikiname parameter
  4023     * Better WikiFarm support:
  4024       * <datadir>/plugin/macro and <datadir>/plugin/action can be used
  4025         to store macros and actions local to a specific wiki instance
  4026       * config.shared_intermap can contain a pathname to a shared
  4027         "intermap.txt" file (i.e. one stored outside the datadir)
  4028     * added `backtick` shortcut for {{{inline literal}}} (has to be
  4029       enabled by "backtick_meta=1" in the config file); note that ``
  4030       is then a shorter replacement for '''''' escaping
  4031     * added inline search fields (at the bottom of each page)
  4032     * Added preview to the editor, including spell checking
  4033     * New languages: Chinese (Changzhe Han) and Portuguese (Jorge
  4034       Godoy), updated French (Lucas Bruand), added Korean (Hye-Shik
  4035       Chang) and Italian (Lele Gaifax)
  4036     * New SystemAdmin macro
  4037     * `[[Anchor(anchorname)]]` macro to insert anchors into a page,
  4038       and [#anchorname Anchor Links].
  4039     * User option to open editor view via a double-click
  4040     * Added commentary field to editor, recent changes and page info
  4041     * Page trails (user option)
  4042     * UserPreferences: checkboxes for double-click edit, page trail,
  4043       fancy links, emoticons, jump to last page visited, and some
  4044       other yes/no options
  4045     * "config.nonexist_qm" is now the default for a user setting
  4046     * `[[GetText(text)]]` macro loads I18N texts (mainly intended
  4047       for use on Help pages)
  4048     * table attributes via "||<attrlist> ... ||", more details on
  4050     * PythonFaq interwiki tag and support for $PAGE placeholder
  4051     * event logging, as the basis for future statistics
  4052     * "moin-dump" command line tool to create a static copy of
  4053       the wiki content
  4054     * "config.external_diff" allows to set an exact path to the
  4055       command, or change the name to for example "gdiff" if GNU
  4056       diff is not a native command in your UNIX flavour
  4057     * `[[PageSize]]` macro
  4058     * the interwiki name "Self" now always points to the own wiki
  4059     * config.title1 and config.title2 are inserted into the output
  4060       right before and after the system title html code (title1
  4061       is right after the <body> tag and normally undefined, title2
  4062       defaults to the "<hr>" above the page contents)
  4063     * Additional link on diff pages to ignore whitespace changes
  4064     * Subpages (config.allow_subpages, config.page_icons_up)
  4065     * super^script^, sub,,script,, and __underline__ markup
  4066     * `[[FootNote]]` macro
  4067     * many other new config options, see HelpOnConfiguration for
  4068       a complete list
  4069     * [[StatsChart(type)]] shows statistical charts (currently
  4070       defined types: hitcounts, pagesize, useragents)
  4071     * 'inline:' scheme works like 'attachment:', but tries to
  4072       inline the content of the attachment into the page;
  4073       currently knows about "*.py" sources and colorizes them
  4074     * support for Java applet "TWikiDrawPlugin" via
  4075       drawing:<drawingname> URL scheme (you need to activate
  4076       the AttachFile action if you want drawings)
  4077     * numeric entities (&#nnnnn;) are now optionally NOT escaped,
  4078       which allows you to insert more characters into a Latin-1
  4079       page, especially the Euro symbol
  4080     * navi_bar is now a list of page names which should be linked
  4081       on every page
  4082     * test.cgi is now rolled into moin.cgi, and can be called
  4083       by adding "?test" to the wiki base URL. Also, as a security
  4084       feature, the server's environment is only shown for requests
  4085       local to the web server.
  4087 Unfinished features:
  4088     * user defined forms
  4089     * XML export of all data in the wiki
  4091 Documentation:
  4092     * extended the online help ("Help*" pages)
  4093     * German help pages (thanks to Thomas Waldmann)
  4095 Bugfixes:
  4096     * #425857: python Parser bug on the second call
  4097     * #424917: Caching control
  4098     * #465499: Two HTTPS problems
  4099     * #491155: FrontPage hardcoded
  4100     * Handling of inbound UTF-8 encoded URIs (only with Python >= 2.0)
  4101     * Fix for subtle changes in "re" of Python 2.2
  4102     * User-provided URLs are now never URL-escaped, which allows appending
  4103       #anchors and using %20 for spaces in InterWiki links
  4105 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4106 Version 0.10 (2001-10-28, Revision 1.134)
  4108 This version is still Python 1.5.2 compatible, but it's not extensively
  4109 tested for that version and some parts of the system might not work
  4110 there, especially seldom used macros and actions. Bug reports welcome!
  4112 New features:
  4113     * "#deprecated" processing instruction
  4114     * config entry "SecurityPolicy" to allow for customized permissions
  4115       (see "" for more)
  4116     * added distutils support
  4117     * though not extensively tested, the standalone server now does POST
  4118       requests, i.e. you can save pages; there are still problems with
  4119       persistent global variables! It only works for Python >= 2.0.
  4120     * "bang_meta" config variable and "!NotWikiWord" markup
  4121     * "url_mappings" config variable to dynamically change URL prefixes
  4122       (especially useful in intranets, when whole trees of externally
  4123       hosted documents move around)
  4124     * setting "mail_smarthost" and "mail_from" activates mailing
  4125       features (sending login data on the UserPreferences page)
  4126     * very useful for intranet developer wikis, a means to view pydoc
  4127       documentation, formatted via a XSLT stylesheet, for details see
  4129       or MoinMoin/macro/
  4130     * "LocalSiteMap" action by Steve Howell <>
  4131     * Added FOLDOC to intermap.txt
  4133 Bugfixes:
  4134     * Full config defaults, import MoinMoin now works w/o
  4135     * Better control over permissions with config.umask
  4136     * Bugfix for a UNIX time billenium bug (affecting RecentChanges
  4137       sorting and page diffs)
  4138     * data paths with directory names containing dots caused problems
  4140 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4141 Version 0.9 (2001-05-07)
  4143 New features:
  4144     * XML page input (pages that start with "<?xml") and XSLT formatting
  4145     * Page caching, for now limited to XSLT processing (where it's
  4146       absolutely needed); new code & API to add the "RefreshCache" link
  4147     * Selection of common date/time formats in UserPreferences
  4148     * New action "titleindex" to support wiki introspection (MetaWiki);

  4165     * New config parameter "html_head_queries": send additional header
  4166       for all pages EXCEPT the "normal" view; main usage is to have
  4167       only the normal pages indexed by a spider, not the edit, print,
  4168       etc. views (which cause multiple hits on the same information)
  4169     * Store the modification time of the page file in the editlog, not

  4283       compared now; so, accidently saving over changes of other people is
