     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
    19 Version 1.9.9rc1:
    21   SECURITY HINT: make sure you have allow_xslt = False (or just do not use
    22   allow_xslt at all in your wiki configs, False is the internal default).
    23   Allowing XSLT/4suite is very dangerous, see HelpOnConfiguration wiki page.
    25   HINT: Python 2.7 is required! See docs/REQUIREMENTS for details.
    27   Fixes:
    28   * add meta "viewport" for small device viewports
    29   * add meta X-UA-Compatible IE=Edge, make IE happy on intranets
    31   New features:
    32   * AttachFile multifile operation: support copying multiple files to another page
    33   * cfg.xmlrpc_overwrite_user is a new setting to control whether the xmlrpc
    34     code overwrites an already authenticated user before processing a request.
    35     True (default): behaviour as in 1.9.8 and before
    36     False: use this if you want to use GivenAuth (e.g. http basic auth) for
    37            xmlrpc requests.
    39   Other changes:
    40   * upgraded bundled 3rd party code:
    41     * werkzeug 0.11.11
    42     * passlib 1.6.5
    43     * pygments 2.1.3
    44     * parsedatetime 2.1
    45     * FCKEditor 2.6.11
    46   * removed some bundled stuff we needed due to stdlib issues in older Pythons:
    47     *
    48     *
    49     * (-> email.header)
    50   * SubProcess: reimplement exec_cmd, remove our stdlib hacks
    51   * remove own usage of python_compatibility module which we needed to support
    52     older Pythons. the module is still there, in case some 3rd party moin
    53     extensions used it.
    56 Version 1.9.8:
    57   New features:
    58   * cfg.recovery_token_lifetime to determine how long the password recovery
    59     token will be valid, default is 12 [h]. Check this setting to be adequate
    60     before doing (global) password resets, so your users have enough time to
    61     react before the toke times out!
    62   * cfg.log_events_format can be used to configure the format of the records
    63     written to <data_dir>/event-log:
    64     0 = dot not create event-log entries (saves disk space, disk I/O)
    65     1 = standard (like in moin <= 1.9.7) [default]
    66     2 = extended (add infos about username, wikiname, url)
    67   * add a tool to output the contents of the event-log to CSV:
    68     moin export eventlog --file=output.csv
    69     Output encoding is utf-8, columns are in this order:
    70     time, event, username, ip, wikiname, pagename, url, referrer, ua
    71     time: UNIX timestamp (float)
    72   * reimplement cfg.log_timing - if True, emits INFO level log output like:
    74     TIME is in seconds, the slowness indicator is "." for sub-second requests
    75     or N times "!" for requests taking N seconds (so you easily can grep for
    76     slow stuff).
    77   * add "abuse" logging. this will log every attempt to login (successful ones
    78     as well as unsuccessful ones). abuse logging is configured via the logging
    79     configuration, see example in wiki/config/logging/abuse.
    80     Currently, abuse logging is implemented for:
    81     * authentication system
    82       * "moin" auth
    83       * "given" auth
    84       * setuid (when superuser switches to another user)
    85     * new user creation
    86     * some security/ACL violations (xmlrpc and perhaps others not implemented)
    87   * surge protection for authentication (currently only for MoinAuth):
    88     a) surge protect by IP
    89        This covers the case someone is trying to authenticate way too
    90        often - we don't look at the username here, just at the remote IP
    91        address. If surge protection kicks in for some specific IP, that IP
    92        won't be able to try to authenticate any more until surge_lockout_time
    93        is over.
    94        Note: be careful with users behind proxies or NAT routers - these are
    95              common and legitimate cases with (potentially lots of)
    96              authentication requests coming from same IP.
    97              if it is a trusted proxy, you can configure moin so it sees the
    98              real remote IP address (not just the proxy's address).
    99     b) surge protect by name
   100        This covers the case someone is trying to authenticate for a
   101        specific user name way too often (e.g. when someone tries to attack the
   102        wiki admin's account). We don't look at the IP here, just at the user
   103        name. If surge protection kicks in for some specific user name, that user
   104        name will not be able to try to authenticate any more until
   105        surge_lockout_time is over.
   106        Note: this even covers widely distributed attacks against a user, but
   107              you should only enable this if you are aware that the "real" user
   108              also won't be able to authenticate while surge protection is active
   109              (at least not using the account for that specific username).
   110              Thus, there is some denial-of-service danger with this if the
   111              attacker can guess or find your valid user names (which isn't too
   112              difficult if your wiki is publicly readable).
   113              This is bad, but technically hard to avoid.
   114     Configuration (allowing 10 authentication attempts per hour):
   115         surge_action_limits = {
   116             # ...
   117             'auth-ip': (10, 3600),  # same remote ip (any name)
   118             'auth-name': (10, 3600),  # same name (any remote ip)
   119          }
   120   * backlinks performance tuning: the pagename in the theme has historically
   121     been used to trigger a "linkto:ThisPage" search. While this is a nice
   122     feature for human users of the wiki (esp. on category pages), it has one
   123     big issue: as it is a normal link, stupid crawlers (ignoring "nofollow")
   124     follow it and cause a lot of unneccessary load.
   126     What moin shows in that "backlinks" place can now be configured in your
   127     wiki config:
   129     # always render the backlink as in moin < 1.9.8 (bad bots causing high load!):
   130     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'backlink'
   132     # always render a simple link to same page, as in moin 2.0:
   133     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'pagelink'
   135     # logged-in users get the backlink, anon users/bots get a pagelink (default):
   136     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'backlink' if req.user.valid else 'pagelink'
   138     # logged-in users get the backlink, anon users/bots get simple text:
   139     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'backlink' if req.user.valid else 'text'
   140   * AbandonedPages macro: check user agent to reduce load caused by bots
   141   * RSS feed: check for bots and rather give them empty results than waste a
   142     lot of time with them
   143   * ldap_auth: support placeholders for basedn also, e.g. you could use:
   144     base_dn='uid=%(username)s,ou=people,dc=company,dc=com'
   145   * move or delete multiple attachments (see checkboxes and buttons on the
   146     AttachFile view). Be careful: in the same way as you could delete a single
   147     attachment with one click, you can now delete all attachments of a page
   148     with one click (we don't ask for a 2nd confirmation, so think first).
   149   * mailimport: use relative attachment link markup instead of absolute links,
   150     enables some page renaming operations without needing to edit the markup.
   151   * better caching and lookup optimizations for userprofile data:
   152     * name, email, jid, openids -> userid lookups
   153     * page subscriptions for notifications (as a consequence, determination of
   154       subscribers when a page is saved is much faster now, esp. for wikis with
   155       many users) - see also MoinMoinBugs/GetSubscribersSlow
   156   * Notification template strings are now configurable via cfg.mail_notify_...
   157     * page_text (this puts together the pieces for the mail body, used for all
   158       changed / deleted / renamed page mail notifications)
   159     * page_changed_subject, page_changed_intro
   160     * page_deleted_subject, page_deleted_intro
   161     * page_renamed_subject, page_renamed_intro
   162     * att_added_subject, att_added_intro
   163     * att_removed_subject, att_removed_intro
   164     * user_created_subject, user_created_intro
   165     * Best is to read HelpOnConfiguration and look at MoinMoin.config.multiconfig
   166       to see the help text and the defaults.
   167     * The defaults are chosen to be the same as the old hardcoded values, so the
   168       translations keep working.
   169     * If you overwrite the strings in your configuration moin will still try to
   170       translate your strings, but it will only find translations if you add them
   171       to the gettext catalogs, too.
   172     * Examples:
   174       a) notification mail body: you don't want the rendered diff, you don't
   175          want to link to the diff, but to the full page view on your wiki.
   177       # original (default) value
   178       mail_notify_page_text = '%(intro)s%(difflink)s\n\n%(comment)s%(diff)s'
   179       # put this in your wiki config
   180       mail_notify_page_text = '%(intro)s%(pagelink)s\n\n%(comment)s'
   182       b) notification mail subject:
   183       # original (default) value
   184       mail_notify_page_changed_subject = '[%(sitename)s] %(trivial)sUpdate of "%(pagename)s" by %(username)s'
   186       c) notification mail intro:
   187       # original (default) value
   188       mail_notify_page_changed_intro = \
   189           ("Dear Wiki user,\n\n"
   190            'You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "%(sitename)s" for change notification.\n\n'
   191            'The "%(pagename)s" page has been changed by %(editor)s:\n')
   193       Note: if you change "*_page_changed_*", you likely also want to change
   194       "*_page_deleted_*" and "*_page_renamed_*", maybe even "*_att_added_*"
   195       and "*_att_removed_*".
   197   Fixes:
   198   * security fix: XSS in useragents stats
   199   * do not create empty pagedirs (with empty edit-log). To clean up all the
   200     trash pagedirs, use moin ... maint cleanpage.
   201   * page rename/delete, attachment add/remove email notifications work now
   202     (somehow we had an event for this, but no code handling it)
   203   * AttachFile do=get and do=view: send 404 status if file does not exist
   204   * link rel="Alternate" links: rather use page.url than request.href, so
   205     url_prefix_action gets used for the (print and raw) action URLs
   206   * fixed wrong detection of UI language from accept-language header for not
   207     logged-in users if the language identifier there was (partially) uppercase.
   208   * fix Python 2.7.4/5 compatibility issue with rss_rc action using handler._out
   209   * fix "moin import wikipage" timestamp confusion
   210   * use 302 http status for #redirect as some clients cache 301 redirects, but
   211     the #redirect might get changed or removed later (so it should not be
   212     cached and we also can't really say it is permanent)
   213   * fix crash when macro names contain non-ascii chars
   214   * CopyPage action: fix NameError exception when TextCha was answered wrong
   215   * docbook formatter: fix image URL generation, avoid script name duplication
   216   * fix caching scope of name2id/openid2id caches (was: "wiki", now:
   217     "userdir"). this is relevant for shared user_dir configurations.
   218   * moin maint cleancache: cleans up openid2id cache now also
   219   * "userdir" caching scope used for userid lookup caches (the previously used
   220     name2id cache with "wiki" caching scope could have outdated data if you
   221     share the user_dir between multiple wikis)
   222   * catch "filename too long" exception if some crap URL refers to a too long
   223     pagename that the filesystem can not represent. It is treated like a not
   224     existing page then, so you don't get a traceback in your log file.
   226   Other changes:
   227   * rss_rc action (RSS feed) is now much faster / much less resource consuming
   228     when requested for a specific single page. As we have a link to this in
   229     every page's html output, this likely also lightens the load caused by bots
   230     and search engine crawlers.
   231   * tuned - only open/read log if there is new stuff in it after
   232     last read position
   233   * improve python2.5 compatibility (with_statement)
   234   * add bingbot to ua_spiders
   235   * upgraded bundled werkzeug to 0.8.3
   236   * upgraded bundled passlib to 1.6.2
   237   * upgraded bundled pygments to 1.6
   240 Version 1.9.7:
   241   New features:
   242   * passlib support - enhanced password hash security. Special thanks go to
   243     the Python Software Foundation (PSF) for sponsoring development of this!
   245     Docs for passlib:
   247     If cfg.passlib_support is True (default), we try to import passlib and set
   248     it up using the configuration given in cfg.passlib_crypt_context (default
   249     is to use sha512_crypt with default configuration from passlib).
   251     The passlib docs recommend 3 hashing schemes that have good security, but
   252     some of them have additional requirements:
   253     sha512_crypt needs passlib >= 1.3.0, no other requirements.
   254     pbkdf2_sha512 needs passlib >= 1.4.0, no other requirements.
   255     bcrypt has additional binary/compiled package requirements, please refer to
   256     the passlib docs.
   258     cfg.password_scheme should be '{PASSLIB}' (default) to tell that passlib is
   259     wanted for new password hash creation and also for upgrading existing
   260     password hashes.
   262     For the moin code as distributed in our download release archive, passlib
   263     support should just work, as we have passlib 1.6.1 bundled with MoinMoin
   264     as MoinMoin/support/passlib. If you use some other moin package, please
   265     first check if you have moin AND passlib installed (and also find out the
   266     passlib version you have installed).
   268     If you do NOT want to (not recommended!) or can't use (still using python
   269     2.4?) passlib, you can disable it your wiki config:
   271         passlib_support = False  # do not import passlib
   272         password_scheme = '{SSHA}'  # use best builtin hash (like moin < 1.9.7)
   274     Please note that after you have used moin with passlib support and have user
   275     profiles with passlib hashes, you can't just switch off passlib support,
   276     because if you did, moin would not be able to log in users with passlib
   277     password hashes. Password recovery would still work, though.
   279     password_scheme always gives the password scheme that is wanted for new or
   280     recomputed password hashes. The code is able to upgrade and downgrade hashes
   281     at login time and also when setting / resetting passwords for one or all
   282     users (via the wiki web interface or via moin account resetpw script
   283     command).
   285     So, if you want that everybody uses strong, passlib-created hashes,
   286     resetting the passwords for all users is strongly recommended:
   287     First have passlib support switched on (it is on by default), use
   288     password_scheme = '{PASSLIB}' (also default), then reset all passwords.
   290     Same procedure can be used to go back to weaker builtin hashes (not
   291     recommended): First switch off passlib support, use password_scheme =
   292     '{SSHA}', then reset all passwords.
   294     Wiki farm admins sharing the same user_dir between multiple wikis must use
   295     consistent password hashing / passlib configuration settings for all wikis
   296     sharing the same user_dir. Using the builtin defaults or doing the
   297     configuration in is recommended.
   299     Admins are advised to read the passlib docs (especially when experiencing
   300     too slow logins or when running old passlib versions which may not have
   301     appropriate defaults for nowadays):
   305   * Password mass reset/invalidation support, see docs/resetpw/.
   306     This is useful to make sure everybody sets a new password and moin computes
   307     the password hash using the current configuration.
   309   * Customizable default password checker:
   310     Moin's default password checker used and still uses min_length=6 (minimum pw
   311     length) and min_different=4 (minimum count of different chars in the password).
   312     If you feel that you need to require better passwords from your users, you
   313     can customize it now like that in your wiki config:
   315     password_checker = lambda cfg, request, name, pw: multiconfig._default_password_checker(cfg, request, name, pw, min_length=10, min_different=7)
   317   * Removing/disabling inactive users (moin ... account inactive)
   318     Many wikis have a lot of inactive users, that never ever made a single edit.
   319     See help of the command for more details, be careful.
   320   * SystemAdmin user browser: show disabled user accounts at the bottom of
   321     the list
   322   * At startup, announce moin version and code path in log output (makes
   323     support and debugging easier).
   324   * AttachList: introduced search_term parameter (optional) for listing
   325     attachments filtered by a regular expression on their name.
   326   * sign release archive using GnuPG with the key of
   327     ID 31A6CB60 (main key ID FAF7B393)
   329   Fixes:
   330   * logging: if the logging config file can't be read, give a helpful error msg
   331   * logging: use info loglevel (not warning) for telling about using the builtin
   332     default logging config
   333   * moin script commands: warn if someone gave ... to the moin script, avoids a
   334     strange and unhelpful 'empty module name' error message
   335   * reorder html input fields in recoverpass form, to help browsers remember
   336     the user name and password (not erroneously the recovery token and password)
   337   * don't try to send password recovery email to user if email address in
   338     user profile is empty
   339   * cache action: fix 304 http status
   340   * rst parser: fix safe_import for level param in __import__ call of docutils 0.10
   341   * moin maint cleancache: also kill the i18n cache 'meta' pickle file
   342   * sendmail: catch unicode errors when E-Mail addr has non-ascii chars
   343   * redirect last visited: if last visited page is on same wiki, use a local
   344     redirect, do not compute via interwiki map (fixes https: usage)
   347 Version 1.9.6:
   349   Fixes:
   350   * fix remote code execution vulnerability in twikidraw/anywikidraw action
   351   * fix path traversal vulnerability in AttachFile action
   352   * fix XSS issue, escape page name in rss link
   353   * escape user- or admin-defined css url
   354   * make taintfilename more secure
   355   * use a constant time str comparison function to prevent timing attacks
   356   * Attachment handler: catch all Zip-related errors
   359 Version 1.9.5:
   361   Fixes:
   362    * Security fix: fix virtual group bug in ACL evaluation.
   363    * Avoid crash if #refresh processing instruction is used without arguments.
   364    * Fix issue with non-ASCII textchas.
   365    * Xapian indexing: remove copy.copy() that crashed on Windows/IIS/isapi-wsgi
   366      after page save.
   367    * Fix dictionary file reading crash under Windows.
   368    * Work around crash of AdvancedSearch macro rendering caused by non-ascii
   369      mimetypes.types_map entries.
   370    * Added migration script for moin 1.8.9.
   371    * rss_rc: Fix diffs added in RSS with diffs=1 (now they correspond to item
   372      listed in feed and not just last page diffs). Links generated with ddiffs=1
   373      also fixed.
   374    * rss_rc: fix double escaping issue.
   375    * rss_rc: respect show_names configuration option.
   376    * rss_rc: proper support of rename, revert, page creation.
   377    * modern/modernized theme: fix padding/width for editor preview
   378    * group/pagelinks formatters: avoid to create unnecessary output, redirect
   379      output of send_page call with the groups formatter, it must not be written
   380      to the output stream
   381    * rst parser: fix include and macro directives
   382    * wikisync: fix unicode pagename sending for python 2.7 httplib
   384   New features:
   385    * add a comment_required config option (default: False) to require a
   386      non-empty comment when saving a page
   387    * when a save error happens, show the editor again and highlight the error
   388    * rss_rc: several new options added: lines parameter gives ability to set
   389      maximum size of diffs showed in RSS. show_att parameter gives ability
   390      to show information aboout attachment-related items in RSS. page parameter
   391      gives ability to specify set of pages for which changes RSS feed should be
   392      generated. Configuration of defaults and limits can now be done via wiki
   393      configuration mechanism.
   394    * As soon as it is now possible to provide RSS for page change history,
   395      appropriate alternate link is now added for every page (controlled by
   396      rss_show_page_history_link configuration parameter).
   397    * Search: "no_highlight:" search query option provided for suppressing
   398      highlighting search results.
   399    * Search macros: new options for FullSearch, FullSearchCached and PageList
   400      available:
   401      * highlight_titles option controls highlighting of matches in search
   402        results provided by these macros. Default value is set in
   403        search_macro_highlight_titles configuration option)
   404      * highlight_pages option controls adding of highlight URL parameter to
   405        page links (so search term is highlighted when user goes to one of
   406        these pages via provided link) in search results. Default value is set
   407        in search_macro_highlight_pages configuration option.
   408      Usage of these options is disabled (via search_macro_parse_args
   409      configuration option) by default due to behavioural changes introduced
   410      in macro parameter parsing mechanism to support them. Related to
   411 .
   413   Other changes:
   414    * Remove 4suite dependency for docbook formatter, use minidom (included in
   415      Python).

   429    * Fix for MoinMoinBugs/SinglePageSlideShowAndParserMarkup.
   430    * Simplify auto scroll initialization; fix bug in IE init discovered when
   431      using IE7 on pages with wide tables.
   432    * Fix timestamp in edit lock message to show the time when edit-locking ends.
   433    * Updated from internal defaults, sync the one in
   434      toplevel dir and the one in wiki/server/ - fixes hostname setting.
   435    * SubProcess: make sure files are closed at the end (experimental change).
   436    * text plain formatter: fix bullet_list, see number_list.
   437    * Add some image mimetypes to MIMETYPES_MORE to fix windows issues.
   438    * Include page name in password reset URL.
   439    * Fix moin export dump to generate relative URLs.
   440    * Fix MonthCalendar mouseover for pages with ampersand in page name.

   459    * xmlrpc: new methods xmlrpc_getProcessingInstruction(Version)
   460    * Add support for other password hashes (all of them will get auto-upgraded
   461      to SSHA when user logs in):
   462      * {DES} (Unix crypt(3))
   463      * {MD5} (MD5-based crypt())
   464      * {APR1} (Apache .htpasswd). 
   465    * Experimental queued indexing support to work around memory leak - use it like this:
   466      # put all pages into indexer queue:
   467      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=makequeue
   468      # take <count> pages out of the indexer queue and index them,
   469      # you need to repeat the following line respective to the total amount of pages
   470      # in your wiki (doing more indexer calls does no harm, doing less means an
   471      # incomplete index):
   472      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=buildnewindexqueued --count=500
   473      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=buildnewindexqueued --count=500
   474      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=buildnewindexqueued --count=500
   475      # ...
   476      # switch to new index:
   477      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=usenewindex 
   479   Other changes:
   480    * Raise exceptions as recommended in PEP 8.
   481    * Updated i18n / underlay pages.
   482    * Updated interwiki map.
   483    * Use logging.traceback to get more information if a indexing filter crashes.
   484    * u200b is not considered a space any more in unicode 4.0.1.
   485    * Improve textcha security, use some crypto and timing to make cheating
   486      harder - use cfg.textchas_expiry_time = 600 (default, seconds) to set the
   487      time a textcha is valid.
   488    * Upgraded bundled werkzeug to 0.8.1, pygments to 1.4, flup to repo tip.
   491 Version 1.9.3:
   492   Fixes:
   493   * Fix XSS in Despam action (CVE-2010-0828).
   494   * Fix XSS issues (see MoinMoinBugs/1.9.2UnescapedInputForThemeAddMsg):
   495     * by escaping template name in messages
   496     * by fixing other places that had similar issues
   497   * Make moin compatible to werkzeug 0.5 .. 0.6.2 (1.9.2 had issues
   498     with xmlrpc when used with werkzeug 0.6.x).
   499   * MoinMoin.util.filesys: disable usage of dircache, deprecate dc* functions,
   500     because the dircache stdlib module can't work correctly for fast updates of
   501     directories.
   502   * rss_rc and sisterpages actions: fix Content-Type header (mimetype)
   503   * Fix associating OpenID identity with user, wasn't adapted to werkzeug yet.

   505   * Fix auth.cas and userprefs.oidserv request object usage.
   506   * highlight parser: fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumberSpansForProcessInstructionsMissed
   507   * Pygments syntax highlighting: add missing code files
   508   * Notifications: use same email subject format for every notification
   509   * Fix docbook formatter crashing, see MoinMoinPatch/IncludeMacroWithDocBookFormatter
   510   * Fix regex content search for xapian search.
   511   * Get rid of the empty line at the end of code highlights.
   512   * GUI editor: compute editor height like the text editor does.
   513   * Added help texts for: standalone server and moin migration.
   514   * script.maint.cleancache: clean also i18n cache files
   515   * Improved formatter.text_plain, see FeatureRequests/TextPlainFormatterRewrite
   516     (fixes many issues of this formatter).
   517   * text_html_text_moin_wiki: fixed index error for width="", see also:
   518     MoinMoinBugs/GUI_convertor_list_index_out_of_range
   519   * xmlrpc: disable editor backup for putPage, renamePage and revertPage
   520     because if pages get uploaded by xmlrpc then the draft cache file can
   521     rapidly increase in size, causing high memory usage because it needs to
   522     get loaded into memory for updating/processing.
   523   * Emit Content-Type header (with charset) for SlideShow action and many other
   524     actions that just call send_title().
   525   * ActionBase: better compatibility to moin 1.8, use request.values by
   526     default, optionally use request.form data only
   528   New features:
   529   * RenamePage action: added ability to create redirect pages when renaming
   530     (turned off by default, see show_rename_redirect config option).
   531   * formatter/text_html: Added line number links to code blocks.
   532   * diff action:
   533     * Fixed whitespace in generated (html) diff view table so white-space: pre
   534       can be used (and whitespace in diffs preserved).
   535     * Added links to first/last revision.
   536   * MoinMoin.widget.browser: introduced feature for sorting tables, see:
   538   * SystemAdmin user and attachment browsers: sorting feature used there now
   539   * Scrolling the text editor to the double clicked line.
   540   * Enable double-click-editing by default.
   541   * WikiConfigHelp macro: make heading and description display optional,
   542     heading level as a parameter (default 2)
   543   * If edit ticket check fails, send the editor with the current content.
   544   * moin import wikipage - use this script to import local files as a wiki page
   546   Other changes:
   547   * upgraded pygments from 1.2.2 to 1.3.1
   548   * upgraded FCKeditor from to 2.6.6
   549   * added configuration snippet for ldap authentication against 2 servers
   550   * improved script help output
   552 Version 1.9.2:
   553   Fixes:
   554   * Fixed CVE-2010-0668: major security issues were discovered in misc. parts
   555     of moin.
   556     HINT: if you have removed superuser configuration to workaround the issue
   557     (following our security advisory), you may re-add it after installing this
   558     moin release. If you don't need superuser capabilities often, it might be
   559     wise to not have superusers configured all the time, though.
   560   * Fixed CVE-2010-0669: potential security issue due to incomplete user profile
   561     input sanitizing.
   562   * Improved package security: cfg.packagepages_actions_excluded excludes
   563     unsafe or otherwise questionable package actions by default now.
   564   * wiki parser: fixed transclusion of (e.g. video) attachments from other
   565     pages.
   566   * Fixed edit locking for non-logged in editors and cfg.log_remote_addr=False.
   567   * mailimport: fix missing wikiutil import for normalize_pagename
   568   * SubProcess: fix "timeout" AttributeError
   569   * "standalone" fixed calling non-existing os.getuid on win32
   570   * HTTPAuth deprecation warning moved from class level to __init__
   571   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/1.9DiffActionThrowsException.
   572   * Fixed misc. session related problems, avoid unneccessary session file
   573     updates.
   574   * Fix/improve rename-related problems on Win32 (depending on Windows version).
   575   * Fixed spider / user agent detection.
   576   * Make sure to use language_default when language_ignore_browser is set.
   577   * diff action: fix for case when user can't revert page.
   578   * Fix trail size (was off by one).
   579   * Updated bundled flup middleware (upstream repo checkout), avoids
   580     socket.fromfd AttributeError on win32 if cgi is forced, gives helpful
   581     exception msg.
   582   * wikiutil: Fixed required_arg handling (no exception when trying to raise
   583     exception that choice is wrong).
   584   * Do not use* to import 3rd party code, give dist packages
   585     a chance.
   586   * wikiutil.clean_input: avoid crash if it gets str type
   587   * request: fixed for werkzeug 0.6 and 0.5.1 compatibility. Please note that
   588     we didn't do much testing with 0.6 yet. So, if you use 0.6, please do some
   589     testing and provide feedback to us.
   590   * AttachFile._build_filelist: verifies readonly flag for unzip file link
   591   * attachUrl: fix wrongly generated tickets (e.g. for AttachList macro)
   592   * http headers: fix duplicated http headers (e.g. content-type)
   594   New features:
   595   * info action: added pagination ability to revision history viewer.
   596     Use cfg.history_paging = True [default] / False to enable/disable it.
   597   * ldap_login auth: add report_invalid_credentials param to control wrong
   598     credentials error message (this is typically used when using multiple
   599     ldap authenticators).
   600   * Add RenderAsDocbook to actions_excluded if we have no python-xml.
   601   * Upgraded pygments to 1.2.2 (some fixes, some new lexers).
   602   * Text editor: if edit_rows==0 (user profile or config), we dynamically size
   603     the text editor height. This avoids double sliders for the editor page
   604     in most cases.
   606   Other changes:
   607   * New docs/REQUIREMENTS.
   608   * Added a less magic cgi/fcgi driver (moin.fcgi), added fixer middleware
   609     for apache2/win32 to it.
   612 Version 1.9.1:
   613   Bug fixes:
   614   * Fixed CVE-2010-0667: sys.argv security issue.
   615   * Fixed FileSessionService - use session_dir from CURRENT request.cfg (it
   616     mixed up session_dirs in farm setups).
   617     HINT: if you added the hotfix to your wikiconfig, please remove it now.
   618   * Fixed creation of lots of session files (if anon session were enabled and
   619     user agent did not support cookies).
   620   * Fixed session file storage for a non-ascii base path.
   621   * Fixed session cookie confusion for nested URL paths (like path=/ and
   622     path=/mywiki - for more info, see also "New features").
   623   * Handle cookie_lifetime / anonymous_session_lifetime upgrade issue
   624     gracefully: emit errors/warnings to log, use old settings to create
   625     cfg.cookie_lifetime as expected by moin 1.9.
   626   * flup based frontends: fixed SCGI and AJP (didn't work).
   627   * farmconfig example: remove wrong comment, add sample http/https entry.
   628   * Fixed password reset url (email content needs full URL).
   629   * Page: fixed adding of page contents (only data added now, without metadata) -
   630     fixes MoinMoinBugs/DeprecatedPageInclusionErrornousPageInstructionsProcessing
   631   * xmlrpc:
   632     * Process attachname in get/putAttachment similarly.
   633     * revertPage: convert pagename to internal representation.
   634     * Fixed auth calls used by jabberbot (needs more work).
   635   * Added missing config.umask support code (setting was not used), fixed
   636     config.umask usage for page packages.
   637   * Fixed browser language detection.
   638   * Fixed language pack generation/installation for pt-br, zh, zh-tw.
   639   * Fixed caching of formatted msgs, see MoinMoinBugs/1.9EditPageHelpLinksBroken.
   640   * Fixed usage of i18n.wikiLanguages() on class level (moved to method), failed
   641     when tools import the module (e.g. pydoc -k foo).
   642   * highlight parser:
   643     * fixed caching issue for "toggle line numbers" link.
   644     * added missing support for console/bash session
   645   * Fixed precedence of parsers: more special parsers now have precedence
   646     before moin falls back to using the HighlightParser (syntax highlighting).
   647   * Added extensions to the rst, moin and creole parser (example.rst, example.moin and
   648     example.creole attachments are rendered now when viewed).
   649   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumberSpansForProcessInstructionsMissed for
   650     moin_wiki, highlight and plain parser.
   651   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumberAnchorsInPreformattedText for highlight and
   652     plain parser.
   653   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsBrokenForIncludedPages.
   654   * Exception raised on calling add_msg() after send_title(), which leads to 
   655     Internal Server Error on calling several actions (diff, preview) for 
   656     deprecated pages, is replaced with warning and call stack information in 
   657     the log.
   658   * AttachFile.move_file: send events (so e.g. xapian index update happens)
   659   * SubProcess: fixed win32-specific parts, fixed imports (fixes calling of
   660     external xapian index filters)
   661   * Fixed auth methods that use redirects (like OpenID).
   662   * OpenID client:
   663     * Add setting cfg.openidrp_allowed_op, default is [].
   664     * Fixed logging in with openid and associating with an existing account.
   665     * openidrp_sreg extension: handle UnknownTimeZoneError gracefully
   666   * OpenID server:
   667     * Fixed TypeError.
   668     * Fixed processing POSTed form data AND URL args.
   670   New features:
   671   * diff: Added displaying of information about revisions (editor, size, 
   672     timestamp, comment), added revision navigation.
   673   * text editor: added @TIMESTAMP@ variable for adding a raw time stamp
   674   * xmlrpc: added renamePage and deleteAttachment methods.
   675   * Accept "rel" attribute for links (moin wiki parser).
   676   * Generate session cookie names to fix cookie path confusion and enable port-
   677     based wiki farming.
   679     HINT: New setting cfg.cookie_name:
   681     None (default): use MOIN_SESSION_<PORT>_<PATH> as session cookie name. This
   682                     should work out-of-the-box for most setups.
   684     'siteidmagic': use MOIN_SESSION_<SITEID>, which is unique within a wiki farm
   685                    created by a single farmconfig (currently, cfg.siteid is just
   686                    the name of the wiki configuration module).
   688     'other_value': use MOIN_SESSION_other_value - this gives YOU control. Just
   689                    use same value to share the session between wikis and use a
   690                    different value, if you want a separate session.
   692     HINT: Please do not use cfg.cookie_path any more - it usually should not be
   693     needed any more, as we now always put path=/ into the cookie except if you
   694     explicitly configure something else (only do that if you know exactly what
   695     you're doing and if the default does not work for you).
   697     HINT: see also the HelpOnSessions page which shows some typical configs.
   698   * Store expiry into sessions, use moin maint cleansessions script to clean up.
   699     HINT: use moin ... maint cleansessions --all once after upgrading.
   700     HINT: you may want to add a cron job calling moin ... maint cleansessions
   701           to regularly cleanup expired sessions (it won't remove not expired
   702           sessions).
   704   Other changes:
   705   * Added rtsp, rtp, rtcp protocols to url_schemas.
   706   * Added more info about index building to xapian wikiconfig snippet.
   707   * Updated the wikicreole parser to version 1.1.
   710 Version 1.9.0:
   711   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
   712         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
   713         relative to 1.8.6 release.
   714         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
   717   New features: ==============================================================
   718   * HINT: MoinMoin requires Python 2.4 now. If you only have Python 2.3 and
   719     you don't want to upgrade it, please use MoinMoin 1.8.x.
   720   * HINT: MoinMoin is now a WSGI application.
   721     Please read the new install docs about how to use it, see:
   723     You also have a local copy of that page as docs/INSTALL.html.
   724   * HINT: due to big changes in the request processing and the request
   725     object (related to the WSGI refactoring), many 3rd party plugins might
   726     need code updates to work with moin 1.9.
   727   * HINT: We now offer different sized sets of system/help pages and the default
   728     underlay just contains a single page: LanguageSetup. You need to be
   729     superuser, visit that page and then install the language packs you like
   730     (minimum is the essential set for English).
   731   * HINT: LanguageSetup is the default page_front_page, you need to change that
   732     after installing language packs (see above).
   734   * New modular group and dict data access, you can use group and dict 
   735     backend modules to access group and dict data stored anywhere you like.
   736     Currently we provide these backends:
   737       * WikiGroups and WikiDicts backends get data from wikipages. They work
   738         similar to old wikidicts code (but with less caching issues :).
   739       * ConfigGroups and ConfigDicts backends get data from a dictionary
   740         defined in the wiki config.
   741       * CompositeGroups and CompositeDicts compose several backends, so data
   742         may be retrieved from several sources. For example, groups may be
   743         defined in the wiki config and on wiki pages.
   744     * Using cfg.groups and cfg.dicts, you can define the backend to use to
   745       access group and dict information (default: WikiGroups / WikiDicts
   746       backend).
   747       See the wiki/config/more_samples/ directory (groups_wikiconfig_snippet
   748       and dicts_wikiconfig_snippet).
   749     * See also the new HelpOnDictionaries and HelpOnGroups pages.
   751   * Improved Xapian indexing / search:
   752     * Moin's Xapian based search code was refactored:
   753       * It is now based on the xappy library (see
   754       * Minimum Xapian requirement is 1.0.6 now.
   755       * Outdated and unmaintained xapwrap lib was removed.
   756       * regex search with Xapian enabled also is based on the xapian index now
   757     * Safe 2-stage xapian index rebuilding:
   758       moin index build --mode=buildnewindex  # slow, concurrent
   759       <stop wiki>
   760       moin index build --mode=usenewindex  # fast
   761       <start wiki>
   762     * Added wikiconfig snippet for xapian search.
   764   * Improved drawing support:
   765     * TWikiDraw:
   766       * Support code was refactored/moved to the twikidraw action.
   767       * Use drawing:example.tdraw to invoke it (drawing:example also still
   768         works for backwards compatibility)
   769       * Drawings are now stored as a single attachment foo.tdraw.
   770         We added a migration script that converts your existing drawings.
   771     * AnyWikiDraw:
   772       * Java applet added, source code see contrib/.
   773       * Support code for it is in anywikidraw action.
   774       * Use drawing:example.adraw to invoke it.
   775       * Drawings are stored in a similar way as foo.adraw.
   776     * cfg.extensions_mapping added for mapping of attachment file extensions
   777       to actions (currently used for anywikidraw/twikidraw action)
   779   * Themes / static files related:
   780     * Added modernized_cms theme (hides most wiki widgets from modernized if the
   781       user is not logged in).
   782     * Static file serving built-in (moved wiki/htdocs to MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs).
   783       MoinMoin.web.static has a static file serving wrapper that uses the files
   784       from htdocs subdirectory by default (docs=True).
   785       You can also give another path or switch off creation of that static wrapper.
   786       See the docstring of the static package for details.
   787     * Theme packages: do_copythemefile now copies theme files to
   788       MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs.
   790   * Syntax highlighting is based on the pygments library now, it does this for
   791     LOTS of stuff (programming languages, config files, ...) - use it like this:
   792     {{{#!highlight xxx
   793     ...
   794     }}}
   795     xxx is any of the markups pygments supports (see HelpOnParsers).
   796     Note: we still have some (deprecated) small wrappers around pygments,
   797     so the old syntax #!python/pascal/cplusplus/... still works.
   799   * Authentication improvements:
   800     * HTTP auth related (see also HelpOnAuthentication):
   801       * HTTPAuthMoin: http basic auth done by moin
   802       * HINT: auth.http.HTTPAuth is now auth.GivenAuth
   803         This was badly named from the beginning as for most servers, it just
   804         looked at REMOTE_USER environment variable and relied on the server
   805         doing the authentication (could be http basic auth or any other auth).
   806     * LDAP/AD auth: new name_callback param to create a custom wiki username (not
   807       the ldap login username)
   808     * OpenID auth:
   809       * Support for Simple Registration (SREG) extension.
   810         Basic profile fields can be copied from OpenID provider when logging in.
   811       * Support for Teams extension.
   812       * Ability to accept logins from specific OpenID providers.
   813         Login form changes based on configuration for better usability:
   814         * 0 providers: normal text input box for OpenID URL
   815         * 1 provider: hidden field, automatic form submission with JavaScript
   816         * 2+ providers: select field, uses directed identity
   818   * Sessions / cookies:
   819     * HINT: cfg.cookie_lifetime is now a tuple (anon, loggedin), giving the
   820       lifetime of the cookie in hours, accepting floats, for anon sessions and
   821       logged-in sessions. Default is (0, 12). 0 means not to use a session
   822       cookie (== not to establish a session) and makes only sense for anon users.
   823     * cfg.cookie_httponly is new and defaults to False. Please note that if you
   824       set it to True, TWikiDraw and similar stuff won't be able to use the session
   825       cookie. Thus, if your wiki page doesn't allow writing for everybody, saving
   826       a drawing will fail, because there is no session (== no logged in user) for
   827       the TWikiDraw applet's saving POSTs.
   829   * Macros:
   830     * WikiConfigHelp: added section keyword for selecting a subset of the
   831       description, e.g. <<WikiConfigHelp(section="xapian")>>
   832     * HighlighterList: show Pygments syntax highlighters (see HelpOnParsers)
   834   * Actions:
   835     * SlideShow action added (please use the "modernized" theme [default])
   836     * raw action mimetype support: ...?action=raw&mimetype=text/css
   837     * PackagePages: create package file on-the-fly in memory and send it to the
   838       client (do NOT create attachment)
   840   * Improved logging / debugging / developer support:
   841     * Main exception handler: include request url in log output.
   842     * Environment variable MOIN_DEBUGGER=off/web/external (default is "off").
   843     * Handle wikiserverconfig(_local) in the same way as wikiconfig(_local).
   845   * GUI editor: improved attachment dialog
   847   * "moin ... account homepage" script to create user homepages.
   850   Removed features: ==========================================================
   851   * Removed cfg.traceback_* settings (use logging configuration)
   852   * Removed old session code and settings:

   854     * Removed cfg.anonymous_session_lifetime (use cfg.cookie_lifetime)
   857   Bug fixes: =================================================================
   858   * Xapian indexing:
   859     * Rely on xapian's locking (remove moin's additional and sometimes broken
   860       locking, that blocked index-rebuilds or updates sometimes).
   861     * Removed indexer threading.
   862     * Fixed (reimplemented) indexer queue.
   863     * Less disruptive xapian index rebuild.
   864   * AdvancedSearch: example didn't work, fixed
   866   * With the groups/dicts code rewrite, we fixed the caching problems that the
   867     old code (< 1.9) sometimes had.
   869   * Actions:
   870     * Abort RenamePage if renaming of main page fails (do not try to rename
   871       subpages).
   872     * AttachFile do=view: quote filename and pagename params for EmbedObject
   873       macro call
   874     * unsubscribe action: add msg types so icons get displayed
   876   * Parsers:
   877     * fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumbersWorkingBuggyWithHighlightParser
   879   * GUI editor: roundtripping works now for .pdf/doc/... attachment transclusion
   881   * AttachFile: added remove_attachment() and FileRemovedEvent (mail and xapian
   882     support, no jabber support yet).
   884   * Fix makeForbidden403() calls - is makeForbidden(403, ...) now.

   889     behaves like described on HelpOnSearching.
   890   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/DeprecatedIsNotRespected (search ranking, WantedPages).
   891   * OpenID: always return error messages with CancelLogin if OpenID process fails.
   892   * suid: simplify and fix, bigger selection box
   894   * patch werkzeug 0.5.1 to catch OverFlowError and ValueError so it doesn't
   895     crash when receiving invalid If-modified-since header from client.
   898   Other changes: =============================================================
   899   * 'modernized' theme:
   900     * use it by default (1.8 used 'modern')
   901     * move title_with_separators() from Modernized theme to ThemeBase
   902     * add a span with "pagepath" class to title_with_separators
   903   * add the sidebar() method from Mandarin and Gugiel themes to ThemeBase

   911     (checking last use with trail file did not work in 1.9 anyway).
   912   * ImageLink page has been killed (ImageLink macro is gone since 1.6.1).
   913   * Allowed disabling of timezone and language user prefs if they are
   914     part of the user's login fields (i.e. OpenID SREG).
   915   * Added option to disable local registration links and direct user
   916     to registration page at an OpenID provider instead.
   918   Developer notes: ===========================================================
   919   * groups and dicts API changes:
   920     * request.groups and request.dicts provide access to groups and dicts.
   921     * MoinMoin.wikidicts is gone, please use MoinMoin.datastruct.
   922     * LazyGroup and LazyGroupsBackend base classes for implementing backends
   923       which potentially deal with huge amounts of data (like a LDAP directory).
   924       Use MoinMoin/datastruct/backends/ as a draft for
   925       new backends.
   926     * See for more details.
   927   * i18n: new approach for defining sets of system/help pages (see i18n.strings).
   928     CheckTranslation, page packager, wikiutil.isSystemPage() use those sets.
   929   * killed deprecated macro.form attribute (didn't work as expected anyway due
   930     to WSGI refactoring) - please use macro.request.{args,form,values}
   933 Version 1.8.8:
   934   Fixes:
   935     * Fixed XSS issues (see MoinMoinBugs/1.9.2UnescapedInputForThemeAddMsg).
   936     * Fixed XSS in Despam action (CVE-2010-0828).
   937     * wikiutil.clean_input: avoid crash if it gets str type
   938     * Add RenderAsDocbook to actions_excluded if we have no python-xml
   939     * AttachFile._build_filelist: verifies readonly flag for unzip file link
   940     * attachUrl: fix wrongly generated tickets (e.g. for AttachList macro)
   941     * MoinMoin.util.filesys.dc* (dircache can't work reliably):
   942       * disable usage of dircache, deprecate dc* functions
   943       * remove all calls to filesys.dc* (dclistdir, dcdisable)
   944     * Fixed crash, see MoinMoinPatch/IncludeMacroWithDocBookFormatter
   945     * Avoid hardly recoverable crashes if #format specification is invalid
   947   New features:
   948     * auth.ldap_login: add report_invalid_credentials param to control wrong
   949       credentials error message (typically used when using multiple ldap
   950       authenticators)
   953 Version 1.8.7:
   954   Fixes:
   955   * Fixed major security issues in miscellaneous parts of moin.
   956     HINT: if you have removed superuser configuration to workaround the issue
   957     (following our security advisory), you may re-add it after installing this
   958     moin release. If you don't need superuser capabilities often, it might be
   959     wise to not have superusers configured all the time, though.
   960   * Improved package security: cfg.packagepages_actions_excluded excludes
   961     unsafe or otherwise questionable package actions by default now.
   962   * wiki parser: fixed transclusion of (e.g. video) attachments from other
   963     pages.
   964   * Fixed edit locking for non-logged in editors and cfg.log_remote_addr=False.
   965   * xmlrpc:
   966     * Process attachname in get/putAttachment similarly.
   967     * revertPage: convert pagename to internal representation.
   968   * Fixed config.umask usage for page packages.
   969   * Fixed usage of i18n.wikiLanguages() on class level (moved to method),
   970     failed when tools import the module (e.g. pydoc -k foo).
   971   * SubProcess: fixed win32-specific parts, fixed imports (fixes calling of
   972     external xapian index filters)
   975 Version 1.8.6:
   976   Bug fixes:
   977   * Xapian indexing / indexing filters:
   978     * fix deadlocks with well- and misbehaving external filters
   979     * work around indexing run crashing when encountering encoding problems
   980       with non-ascii filenames
   981     * OpenOffice/OpenDocument filters: catch UnicodeDecodeErrors (happens
   982       with password protected files)
   983   * i18n: check if languages is not initialized yet, don't crash
   984   * http_redirect: use 301 redirect for some cases
   985   * do not use httponly session cookies, makes trouble with twikidraw and ACLs
   986   * GetText2 macro: fix for named placeholder
   987   * Fix SHA -> SSHA password hash upgrade for old user profiles.
   988   * abort RenamePage if renaming of main page fails (do not try to rename
   989     subpages)
   991   New features:
   992   * search: improve search result ordering
   993   * add MS Powerpoint indexing filter (needs catppt from catdoc package)
   994   * migration scripts: make finding damaged edit-log entries easier
   995   * SubscribeUser action: support username regexes and unsubscribing.
   996     Usage (enter this into the input form field you get after invoking
   997     SubscribeUser action from the "More Actions" menu:
   998     [+|-][re:]username[,username,...] 
  1000     +username: subscribes user <username> (+ is optional/default)
  1001     -username: unsubscribes user <username>
  1002     +re:username_re: subscribes users who match <username_re> regex.
  1003     -re:username_re: unsubscribes users who match <username_re> regex.
  1006 Version 1.8.5:
  1007   Bug fixes:
  1008     * Attachment links: fix processing of attributes (e.g. 'target', 'title')

  1024   New features:
  1025     * Added CAS authentication.
  1026     * Added httponly cookie support and use it for session cookie.
  1028   Other changes:
  1029     * HTTP auth: added debug logging.
  1030     * Minor LDAP auth improvements.
  1031     * Data browser widget:
  1032       * Add (h)column<idx> css class to make it styleable.
  1033       * Include only necessary autofilter options.
  1034     * moin maint cleancache purges now drafts, too.
  1035     * Add gopher and apt protocols to url_schemas.
  1036     * Add .csv, .flv, .swf to MIMETYPES_MORE.
  1039 Version 1.8.4:
  1040   Bug fixes:
  1041     * ACL security: fix bug in hierarchical ACL processing, more restrictive
  1042       sub page ACLs did not work if the current user name did not give a match
  1043       within the sub page ACL (instead, the less restrictive parent page ACL
  1044       was used).
  1045       Non-hierarchical ACL processing (the default) is NOT affected.
  1046     * Creole parser: fix spaces in multiline elements.
  1047     * Use msie.css only for Internet Explorer older than version 8, fixes
  1048       e.g. the double rendering of link icons.
  1049     * http auth: do auth_type comparisons case-insensitively (spec-compliant)
  1051   New features:
  1052     * EmbedObject macro: changed default width value for PDF files to 100%
  1053                          (use a recent Adobe Reader to make this work).
  1054     * CopyPage action: added a TextCha for it
  1056   Other changes:    
  1057     * Creole parser: Add second license: BSD
  1060 Version 1.8.3:
  1061   Bug fixes:
  1062     * AttachFile XSS fixes: move escaping to error_msg / upload_form
  1063     * AttachFile move: add more escaping (maybe not XSS exploitable though)
  1064     * email attachments import with xapian indexing enabled: fix AttributeError
  1065     * fix wrong links in attachment notifications
  1066     * AttachFile do=view: quote filename and pagename params for EmbedObject
  1067       macro call
  1068     * AttachFile: fix exception when someone just clicks on upload, without
  1069       giving a file
  1070     * ldap_login: use None as default value for ssl certs/keys (using '' for
  1071       the pathes lets it fail with Connect Error)
  1072     * release edit lock if someone saves an unchanged page
  1073     * fix sendmail.encodeAddress (do not [QP] encode blanks, do not un-
  1074       necessarily use [QP] encoding for pure ascii mail addresses)
  1075     * Fixed docs bug: see HINT about secrets configuration at version 1.8.0
  1076       (1.8.0 Other changes).
  1077     * backup action: add 'self' dummy argument for backup_exclude function
  1078     * login action: fix formatting of error messages
  1079     * unsubscribe action: add msg types so icons get displayed
  1080     * fix quoting for pagehits stats (info action) - was not working for pagenames with blanks

  1083   New features:
  1084     * added modernized_cms theme
  1085     * use url_prefix_fckeditor if you don't want to use the builtin FCKeditor
  1086       of moin, but a separate one at some specific url
  1087     * action.Load: added textcha feature
  1088     * add mumble protocol (nice and good quality F/OSS VOIP conference chat sw)
  1089     * ldap auth: new name_callback param to create a custom wiki username (not
  1090       the ldap login username).
  1092   Other changes:
  1093     * add compatibility code for set to xapwrap.index (fix py 2.6 warnings)
  1094     * wikiutil: MIMETYPES_MORE extended for .md5 as text/plain
  1097 Version 1.8.2:
  1098   Bug fixes:
  1099     * Fix AttachFile and antispam XSS issues.
  1100     * Modernized, modern and rightsidebar themes: make nonexistent or
  1101       badinterwiki links gray also when they are already visited.
  1102     * Fix anchor parsing for interwiki links and #redirect processing
  1103       instruction.
  1104     * user.apply_recovery_token: key must be of type string (for Python 2.6).
  1105     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorBreaksIndentedTable.
  1106     * Fix autofilter javascript breakage caused by including a databrowser
  1107       widget.
  1108     * Use per-wiki i18n cache (fixes wrong links to other farm wikis).
  1109     * Made cfg.interwikiname and cfg.user_homewiki unicode objects (str only
  1110       worked for ascii names).
  1111     * Xapian search: fixed historysearch.
  1112     * Xapian search indexing:
  1113       * Fix index updating for trivial changes.
  1114       * With history search enabled and in update mode, do not try to re-index
  1115         old page revisions again.
  1116       * With history search enabled, index page attachments only once.
  1117       * Fix last modified time of xapian index (shown on SystemInfo page).
  1118     * Make logging handlers defined in logging.handlers work (e.g.
  1119       class=handlers.RotatingFileHandler)
  1120     * Jabber notifications:
  1121       * Use an RFC compliant message type.
  1122       * Fix user creation notifications.
  1123     * OpenID: Compatibility fix for python-openid 2.x.x (also works with
  1124       1.x.x), fixes crash when trying to associate moin user to OpenID.
  1125     * Have a in wiki/server/ so copies it.
  1126     * Fixed inconsistent handling of fragments / anchor IDs:
  1127       * Fixed creole and wiki parser, other parsers might need similar fixes.
  1128       * IDs with blanks, non-ASCII chars etc. are now sanitized in the same way
  1129         for links as well as for link targets, so the user editing a page won't
  1130         have to bother with it.
  1131         E.g. [[#123 foo bar]] will link to:
  1132         * <<Anchor(123 foo bar)>> (moin) or {{#123 foo bar}} (creole)
  1133         * headline = 123 foo bar = (moin / creole)
  1134         Simple rule: if the link and the target are consistent, it should work.
  1135       * The creole wiki parser created non-human-readable sha1 heading IDs
  1136         before 1.8.2, now it creates same (sometimes readable) heading IDs as
  1137         the moin wiki parser.
  1138       * TitleIndex/WordIndex now also use IDs sanitized in that way internally.
  1139       HINT: if you manually worked around the inconsistencies/bugs before, you
  1140             likely have to remove those workarounds now. Same thing if you used
  1141             creole's sha1 heading IDs or IDs on TitleIndex/WordIndex.
  1143   Other changes:
  1144     * Updated FCKeditor to 2.6.4 (== many bug fixes in the GUI editor).
  1145     * Enhanced privacy by a new setting: cfg.log_remote_addr (default: True),
  1146       it controls whether moin logs the remote's IP/hostname to edit-log and
  1147       event-log. Use log_remote_addr = False to enhance privacy.
  1148     * Streamline attachment_drawing formatter behaviour.
  1149     * Search results: only redirect to a single search result for titlesearch
  1150       (fuzzy goto functionality), but not for fulltext search results.
  1154 Version 1.8.1:
  1155   Bug fixes:
  1156     * Workaround win32 locking problems (caused by spurious access denied
  1157       exceptions on that platform).
  1158     * Fix unicode errors that happened when password checker failed a password
  1159     * WikiConfig/WikiConfigHelp: fixed wrong language table headings
  1160     * Themes: make the margins around trail line work properly
  1161     * "modernized" theme:
  1162       * make broken links gray
  1163       * add new right/center/left/justify css classes
  1164       * don't force Arial
  1165     * Standalone server: be more specific when catching socket exceptions,
  1166       treat socket errors in http header emission in the same way.
  1167     * GUI editor:
  1168       * Fix heading levels when inserting new headings.
  1169       * Fix headers already sent exception when using e.g. edit LOCKing.
  1170     * Xapian indexing: fixed missing import for execfilter (only happened on
  1171       non-posix platforms like win32)
  1173   * New features:
  1174     * Themes:
  1175      * Make the TOC shrinkwrap, add white background to navigation macro.
  1176        The table of contents looked bad spanning the whole width of the page.
  1177        It's made to shrinkwrap now, so it will only get as wide, as the longest
  1178        heading. We use display:inline-table, so this won't work in MS IE6,
  1179        which still displays it the old way.
  1180        Navigation macro now has a white background, to make it more readable
  1181        when it's floating over a pre block or TOC.
  1182      * Make the numbers in lists in table of contents right-aligned.
  1183      * Refactored and extended theme.html_stylesheets() to make alternate
  1184        stylesheets possible. Stylesheet definitions now can either be:
  1185        2-tuples: (media, href)  # backwards compatibility
  1186        or:
  1187        3-tuples: (media, href, title)  # new, for defining alternate stylesheets
  1188        This works within themes as well as in the wiki config.

  1192 Version 1.8.0:
  1193   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
  1194         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
  1195         relative to 1.7.2 release.
  1196         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
  1199   New Features: ==============================================================
  1200     * HINT: New "modernized" theme - if you use "modern" [default], try:
  1201       theme_default = 'modernized'
  1202       If you find problems with "modernized", please report them because we
  1203       want to use it as default theme in future.
  1204     * GUI Editor:
  1205       * upgraded to use FCKEditor version 2.6.3
  1206       * user can insert and modify various types of MoinMoin links
  1207     * New plugin_dirs setting to allow multiple plugin pathes (additional to
  1208       the automatically configured plugin_dir [default: data_dir/plugin]).
  1209     * @EMAIL@ expands to a MailTo macro call with the obfuscated email address
  1210       of the current user.
  1211     * New macros "WikiConfig" and "WikiConfigHelp".
  1212     * Per-parser quickhelp, 'quickhelp' class variable of parser class.
  1213     * Secure session cookies for https (see cfg.cookie_secure).
  1214     * Added left/center/right/justify css classes to builtin themes.
  1215       Use them like:
  1216       {{{#!wiki justify
  1217       this content is justified....
  1218       }}}
  1220   Removed Features: ==========================================================
  1221     * HINT: url_prefix setting (use url_prefix_static or just use the default)
  1222     * traceback_log_dir setting (we just use logging.exception)
  1223     * editor_quickhelp setting (replaced by per-parser quickhelp)
  1224     * Restoring backups with the backup action and related settings (while
  1225       creating backups is no big issue and should work OK, restoring them
  1226       had fundamental issues related to overwriting or not-overwriting of
  1227       existing files - thus we removed the "restore" part of the action and
  1228       recommend that you just contact the wiki server admin in case of trouble,
  1229       give him your wiki backup file and let him carefully restore it.)
  1230     * Removed unmaintained DesktopEdition (moin 1.5.x style) and phpwiki
  1231       migration scripts from contrib/ directory.
  1233   Bug Fixes: =================================================================
  1234     * GUI Editor - fixed lots of bugs.
  1235     * Fixing https detection for servers using HTTPS=1 and also for WSGI
  1236       servers not using HTTPS/SSL_ environment, but just wsgi.url_scheme.
  1237     * Search results: link to 'view' rendering of found attachments.
  1238     * Standalone server: fix serverClass and interface argument processing,
  1239       announce used serverClass in log output.
  1240     * mointwisted: fixed Twisted start script.
  1241     * Logging:
  1242       * Use logging framework for messages emitted by warnings module (e.g.
  1243         DeprecationWarning), silence some specific warnings.
  1244       * Removed superfluous linefeeds in timing log output.
  1245     * Bug fix for language not installed (MoinMoinBugs/WikiLanguageNotDefined).
  1246     * Fixed editbar hidden comment link cosmetics for sidebar themes (hide the
  1247       complete list element).
  1248     * MoinMoinBugs/DoubleScriptNameInSitemap (fixing urls given by sitemap
  1249       action, if the wiki does not run in the root url of the site)
  1250     * Fixed backup action configuration (broke on win32).
  1251     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/PackagesAddRevision.
  1252     * SyncPages: add workaround for callers calling log_status with encoded
  1253       bytestrings.
  1254     * Fixed dbw_hide_buttons javascript.
  1255     * HINT: Jabber bot can now be configured to use an authentication realm
  1256       which is different from the server's hostname; the xmpp_node
  1257       configuration parameter can now contain a full JID and the xmpp_resource
  1258       parameter is no longer supported.
  1260   Other Changes: =============================================================
  1261     * HINT: new configuration for misc. secrets, please use either:
  1262           secrets = "MySecretLooongString!" # one secret for everything
  1263       or:
  1264           secrets = {
  1265               'xmlrpc/ProcessMail': 'yourmailsecret', # for mailimport
  1266               'xmlrpc/RemoteScript': 'yourremotescriptsecret',
  1267               'action/cache': 'yourcachesecret', # unguessable cache keys
  1268               'wikiutil/tickets': 'yourticketsecret', # edit tickets
  1269               'jabberbot': 'yourjabberbotsecret', # jabberbot communication
  1270           }
  1271       Secret strings must be at least 10 chars long.
  1272       Note: mail_import_secret setting is gone, use
  1273             secrets["xmlrpc/ProcessMail"] instead of it.
  1274       Note: jabberbot secret setting is gone, use
  1275             secrets["jabberbot"] instead of it.
  1276     * HINT: user_autocreate setting was removed from wiki configuration and
  1277       replaced by a autocreate=<boolean> parameter of the auth objects that
  1278       support user profile auto creation.
  1279     * moin import irclog: use irssi parser to format logs, mapped .irc
  1280       extension to text/plain mimetype.
  1281     * HINT: backup action: backup_exclude (default: "do not exclude anything")
  1282       is now a function f(filename) that tells whether a file should be
  1283       excluded from backup.
  1284       You can get the old regex exclusion functionality by using:
  1285       backup_exclude = re.compile(your_regex).search
  1286       Be careful with your regex, you might need to use re.escape() to escape
  1287       characters that have a special meaning in regexes (e.g.: \.[] etc.).
  1288       If in doubt, maybe just leave backup_exclude at the default and don't
  1289       exclude anything.
  1290     * Speed up javascript comments processing on IE by getElementsByClassName()
  1291     * Added sk (slovak) i18n, updated i18n.
  1294 1.7.3:
  1295   New features:
  1296     * Secure session cookies for https, see cfg.cookie_secure.
  1297     * Add left/center/right/justify classes to builtin themes.
  1299   Fixes:
  1300     * Python 2.3 compatibility fixes.
  1301     * Fixed https detection for servers using HTTPS=1 and also for wsgi servers
  1302       not using HTTPS/SSL_ environment, but just wsgi.url_scheme.
  1303     * GUI editor:
  1304       * Fix crash when editing a page with non-ASCII pagename and inserting a link
  1305       * Fix "headers already sent exception" with edit LOCKs.
  1306     * i18n.__init__: Bug fix for wiki language not installed.
  1307     * Fixed URLs given by sitemap action, if the wiki does not run at / URL.
  1308     * Search results: link to 'view' rendering of found attachments
  1309     * Logging:    
  1310       * Removed superfluous linefeed in timing log output.
  1311       * Use logging framework for messages emitted by warnings module (e.g.
  1312         DeprecationWarning), silence some specific warnings.
  1313     * Fix dbw_hide_buttons javascript.
  1314     * Standalone server:
  1315       * fix serverClass argument processing
  1316       * fix --interface="" argument processing
  1317     * mointwisted:
  1318       * added missing pidFile parameter
  1319       * better use for pidFile to avoid conflicts and keep same
  1320         behaviour as in the past
  1321     * Jabber bot can now be configured to use an authentication realm which
  1322       is different from the server's hostname
  1325 Version 1.7.2:
  1326   Fixes:
  1327     * Fix leakage of edit-log file handles (leaked 1 file handle / request!).
  1328     * Fix for MoinMoinBugs/SystemAdminMailAccountData (using POST and forms)
  1329     * Wiki parser: avoid IndexError for empty #! line
  1330     * MonthCalendar macro: fix parameter parsing / url generation
  1331     * Xapian indexing filters (MoinMoin/filter/ or data/plugin/filter/):
  1332       Some indexing filter scripts (e.g. for MS Word documents or PDF files)
  1333       failed on windows because of the single-quote quoting we used (that
  1334       works on Linux and other Posix systems). The fix introduces platform-
  1335       dependant automatic quoting, using double-quotes on win32 and single-
  1336       quotes on posix.
  1337       HINT: if you use own filter plugins based on execfilter, you have to
  1338       update them as the filename quoting (was '%s') is now done automatically
  1339       and must not be part of the command string any more (now just use %s).
  1340       See MoinMoin/filter/ for some up-to-date code (esp. the PDF filter).
  1341     * Prevent CategoryTemplate being listed as a category (it is a Template,
  1342       but matched also the category regex) - added to sample wikiconfig.
  1343     * LDAP auth: fix processing of TLS options
  1344     * UpdateGroup xmlrpc server side: fix wrong arg count error
  1345     * UpdateGroup client: use multicall / auth_token, refactor code so that
  1346       updateGroup function is reusable.
  1347     * Improve Python 2.3 compatibility, add notes where 2.4 is required.
  1350 Version 1.7.1:
  1351   New features:
  1352     * New 'cache' action (see developer notes).
  1354   Fixes:
  1355     * Security fix: XSS fix for advanced search form
  1356     * Avoid creation of new pagedirs with empty edit-log files by just
  1357       accessing a non-existant page. If you used 1.7 before, you likely have
  1358       quite some trash pagedirs now and you can clean them up by using:
  1359       moin --config-dir=... --wiki-url=... maint cleanpage
  1360       This will output some shell script (please review it before running!)
  1361       that can be used to move trash pages into some trash/ directory and also
  1362       moves deleted pages into some deleted/ directory. Maybe keep a copy of
  1363       those directories for a while just for the case.
  1364     * Server specific fixes:
  1365       * standalone ( fix --pidfile and --group option, fix
  1366         operation without a (use builtin defaults).
  1367       * mod_python: work around mod_python 3.3.1 problems with file uploads.
  1368         Note: if you are still using mod_python, we strongly recommend you
  1369 	      try out mod_wsgi (in daemon mode) - it has less bugs, better
  1370 	      security, better separation, WSGI is a Python standard, and moin
  1371 	      developers also use WSGI. See HelpOnInstalling/ApacheWithModWSGI.
  1372     * revert action: fixed for deleted pages.
  1373     * Search:
  1374       * Xapian indexing: Removed crappy "hostname" tokenization.
  1375         Fixes MoinMoinBugs/1.7 XapianNotWorkingWithLeadingNumbersInTitle.
  1376         Also tokenize CamelCase parts of non-wikiwords.
  1377       * Make query parser reject more invalid input.
  1378       * If query parsing raises a BracketError, at least tell what the problem
  1379         is (and not just raise empty  ValueError).
  1380       * Category search: ignore traling whitespace after ----
  1381     * Argument parser:
  1382       * Fixed sort() usage in UnitArgument to be Python 2.3 compatible.
  1383       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TypeErrorInWikiutils.
  1384     * Macros:
  1385       * TableOfContents: skip outer-most <ol> levels when page isn't using
  1386         the biggest headings
  1387       * MonthCalendar: fix MoinMoinBugs/MonthCalendarBreaksOnApostrophe
  1388     * xslt parser: fix MoinMoinBugs/DoNotConvertUnicodeToUTF8ForXsltParser
  1389     * OpenID RP: make it compatible to python-openid 2.2.x
  1390     * PackagePages.collectpackage: removed encoding from file name of zipfile
  1391     * Surge protection: exclude localnet no matter whether user is known or not.
  1392     * Notifications: fix MoinMoinBugs/DuplicateNewUserNotification
  1393     * Script moin account create/disable/resetpw: checks for already existing
  1394       user now.
  1396   Other changes:
  1397     * Prevent CategoryTemplate being listed as a category (it is a Template)
  1398       by changing the default page_category_regex.
  1400   Developer notes:
  1401     * New MoinMoin.action.cache - can be used to cache expensively rendered
  1402       output, e.g. generated images). Once put into the cache, moin can emit
  1403       a http response for that content very fast and very efficient (including
  1404       "304 not changed" handling.
  1405     * New file-like API in MoinMoin.caching (good for dealing with medium
  1406       to large files without consuming lots of memory).
  1407     * wikiutil.importPlugin supports getting the whole plugin module object
  1408       by giving function=None.
  1411 Version 1.7.0:
  1412   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
  1413         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
  1414         relative to 1.6.3 release.
  1415         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
  1418   New Features: ==============================================================
  1419     * HINT: we added generic UPDATE instructions as docs/UPDATE.html.
  1421     * HINT: Standalone server usage changed:
  1422       * Standalone server can now be started via the "moin" script command,
  1423         optionally backgrounding itself.
  1424         See: moin server standalone --help
  1425       * In the toplevel dir, we have renamed to (it was
  1426         often confused with the moin scripting command).
  1427         Now you have:
  1428         * - to start the standalone server
  1429         * - to configure the standalone server
  1430         * wikiserverlogging.conf - to configure logging for it (default config
  1431           is ok for all day use, but can easily be modified for debugging)
  1432         * - to configure the wiki engine
  1433       * Removed old moin daemonizing script (replaced by moin server standalone
  1434         --start/stop)
  1435       * We now provide the "moin" script command also for people not using
  1436, see wiki/server/moin.
  1438     * Logging
  1439       * New powerful and flexible logging, please see wiki/config/logging/ -
  1440         HINT: you have to upgrade your server adaptor script (e.g. moin.cgi)
  1441         and load a logging configuration that fits your needs from there, or
  1442         alternatively you can also set MOINLOGGINGCONF environment variable
  1443         to point at your logging config file.
  1444         If you use some of our sample logging configs, make sure you have a
  1445         look INTO them to fix e.g. the path of the logfile it will use.
  1446       * Moin now logs the path from where it loaded its configuration(s).
  1448     * Authentication / Sessions:
  1449       * HINT: New authentication plugin system, see HelpOnAuthentication. If
  1450         you do not use the builtin default for 'auth' list, you likely have to
  1451         change your configuration. See wiki/config/snippets/ for some samples.
  1452       * HINT: New session handling system (no moin_session any more, now done
  1453         internally and automatically), see HelpOnSessions for details.
  1454       * Added OpenID client and server support.
  1455         See: HelpOnAuthentication and HelpOnOpenIDProvider.
  1456       * cfg.trusted_auth_methods is a list of auth methods that put an
  1457         authenticated user into the "Trusted" ACL group.
  1459     * User profiles / password recovery / notification:
  1460       * New newacount action for creating new user accounts/profiles. If you
  1461         don't want users creating new accounts on their own, you can add this
  1462         action to actions_excluded list.
  1463       * New recoverpass action for password recovery:
  1464         If you forgot your password, recoverpass sends you an email with a
  1465         password recovery token (NOT the encrypted password) that is valid
  1466         for 12 hours.
  1467       * New moin account resetpw script for resetting a user's password by
  1468         the wiki admin.
  1469       * New preferences plugin system, see MoinMoin/userprefs/
  1470       * New notification system with an optional jabber notification bot, see
  1471         HelpOnNotification. HINT: wiki users have to check their notification
  1472         settings, esp. if they want to receive trivial update notifications.
  1474     * The diff action now has navigation buttons for prev/next change and also
  1475       a revert button to revert to the revision shown below the diff display.
  1476     * ThemeBase: support Universal Edit Button, see there for details:
  1478     * ?action=info&max_count=42 - show the last 42 history entries of the page.
  1479       max_count has a default of default_count and a upper limit of
  1480       limit_max_count - you can configure both in your wiki config:
  1481       cfg.history_count = (100, 200) # (default_count, limit_max_count) default
  1482     * The CSV parser can sniff the delimiter from the first CSV line so other
  1483       delimeters than ";" can be used.
  1484     * Admonition support. Added styling for tip, note, important, warning 
  1485       and caution in the modern theme. For more info see HelpOnAdmonitions.
  1486     * DocBook-formatter:
  1487       * supports HTML entities like &rarr; and &#9731;
  1488       * supports the FootNote macro
  1489       * supports bulletless lists
  1490       * support for admonitions
  1491       * will export the wiki page's edit history as the generated article's
  1492         revision history. Doesn't add history of included pages.
  1493       * supports for the MoinMoin comment element, though only inline comments
  1494         are likely to be valid since the DocBook remark is an inline element.
  1495     * New Hits macro: shows the total hits for the page it is used on.
  1497   Removed Features: ==========================================================
  1498     * HINT: Removed attachments direct serving (cfg.attachments - this was
  1499             deprecated since long!). Use AttachFile action to serve attachments.
  1500     * Duplicated file attachment upload code was removed from Load action (just
  1501       use AttachFile action to deal with attachments).
  1502     * Removed 'test' action. If you like to run unit tests, use py.test.
  1503     * Removed Login macro.
  1505   Bug Fixes: =================================================================
  1506     * Better handling of ImportErrors (farmconfig, macros, wikiserverconfig).
  1507     * Fix failure of detection of on-disk cache updates.
  1508     * Fix traceback in on Mac OS X when "import Carbon" fails.
  1510     * AttachFile action / file up- and download / zip support:
  1511       * WSGI: use wsgi.file_wrapper (or a builtin simple wrapper). Fixes memory
  1512         consumption for sending of large file attachments.
  1513       * FastCGI: flush often. Fixes memory consumption for sending of large
  1514         file attachments.
  1515       * Use the open temporary file for receiving file attachment uploads
  1516         (fixes big memory consumption for large file uploads).
  1517       * Catch runtime errors raised by zipfile stdlib modules when trying to
  1518         process a defective zip.
  1519       * When unzipping member files, decode their filenames from utf-8 and
  1520         replace invalid chars.
  1521       * Make error msg less confusing when trying to overwrite a file attachment
  1522         without having 'delete' rights.
  1524     * HINT: page_*_regex processing had to be changed to fix category search.
  1525       If you don't use the builtin (english) defaults, you will have to change
  1526       your configuration:
  1527         old (default): page_category_regex = u'^Category[A-Z]'
  1528         new (default): page_category_regex = ur'(?P<all>Category(?P<key>\S+))'
  1529       As you see, the old regex did work for detecting whether a pagename is
  1530       a category, but it could not be used to search for a category tag in the
  1531       page text. The new regex can be used for both and identifies the complete
  1532       category tag (match in group 'all', e.g. "CategoryFoo") as well as the
  1533       category key (match in group 'key', e.g. "Foo") by using named regex
  1534       groups. \S+ means the category key can be anything non-blank.
  1535       If you like to simultaneously support multiple languages, use something
  1536       like this: ur'(?P<all>(Kategorie|Category)(?P<key>\S+))'
  1537       HINT: after changing your configuration, please rebuild the cache:
  1538         * stop moin
  1539         * moin ... maint cleancache
  1540         * start moin
  1541       If you don't do this, your groups / dicts will stop working (and also
  1542       your ACLs that use those groups). You better do a test whether it works.
  1544     * Xapian search / indexing / stemming:
  1545       * Use text/<format> as mimetype for pages.
  1546       * Index also major and minor for mimetypes, so it will find 'text' or
  1547         'plain' as well as 'text/plain'
  1548       * Fix searching for negative terms.
  1549       * Improve result list ordering.
  1550       * Index filters: redirect stderr to logging system.
  1551       * Remove crappy num regex from WikiAnalyzer, improve tokenization.
  1552       * Fix AttributeError that happened when trying to access an attribute only
  1553         used with xapian search (but regex search is not done by xapian)
  1554       * Fix IndexErrors happening when pages are renamed/nuked after the index
  1555         was built.
  1556       * Fixed indexing of WikiWords (index "WikiWords", "Wiki" and "Words").
  1557       * Fix crash if default language is un-stemmable.
  1558       * xapian_stemming: removed some strange code (fixes search
  1559         title:lowercaseword with xapian_stemming enabled)
  1560       * Fixed category indexing (index CategoryFoo correctly as CategoryFoo, not
  1561         Foo - for all languages, see page_*_regex change above).
  1562     * Builtin search: support mimetype: search for pages for the builtin search
  1563       engine (using text/<format>).
  1565     * Parser fixes:
  1566       * Wiki: fix subscript parsing (was broken for cases like 'a,,1,2,,').
  1567       * Docbook: fixed detection of WikiWords.
  1568       * All: Add ssh protocol to url_schemas for ssh:... URLs.
  1570     * XMLRPC:
  1571       * Fix xmlrpc call to use content-length, if available,
  1572         fixes hangs with wsgiref server.
  1573       * Wiki xmlrpc getPageInfoVersion() fixed:
  1574         * works correctly now for old page versions (was unsupported)
  1575         * works correctly now for current page version (reported wrong
  1576           data when a page had attachment uploads after the last page
  1577           edit)
  1578         * returns a Fault if it did not find a edit-log entry
  1580   Other Changes: =============================================================
  1581     * Using better ACLs and comments on system/help pages now, just taking
  1582       away 'write' permission, but using default ACLs for everything else.
  1583     * HINT: If you want to use xapian based indexed search, you need to have
  1584       Xapian >= 1.0.0 (and you can remove PyStemmer in case you have installed
  1585       it just for moin - we now use the stemmer built into Xapian as it
  1586       supports utf-8 since 1.0.0).
  1587     * Changed default value of cfg.search_results_per_page to 25.
  1588     * Surge Protection: If a user is authenticated by a trusted authentication
  1589       (see also cfg.auth_methods_trusted) then he/she won't trigger surge
  1590       protection, but moin will just log a INFO level log msg with the user's
  1591       name so you can find the culprit in case he/she is overusing ressources.
  1592     * HINT: Added MyPages and CopyPage to actions_excluded because MyPages
  1593       doesn't work without special SecurityPolicy anyway and CopyPage has
  1594       questionable behaviour.
  1595     * Load action now just creates a new revision of the target page, the
  1596       target pagename defaults to the current page name and can be edited.
  1597       If the target pagename is empty, moin tries to derive the target pagename
  1598       from the uploaded file's name.
  1599       Load tries to decode the file contents first using utf-8 coding and, if
  1600       that fails, it forces decoding using iso-8859-1 coding (and replacing
  1601       invalid characters).
  1602     * HINT: cfg.show_login is gone, see code in theme/, this may
  1603       affect many themes!
  1604     * HINT: a new userprefs/ plugin directory will be created by the usual
  1605       "moin migration data" command.
  1606     * DocBook-formatter:
  1607       * generates a valid DOCTYPE
  1608       * table support has been improved
  1609       * handling of definitions and glossaries is more robust
  1610       * supports program language and line numbering in code areas
  1611     * HINT: ldap_login behaves a bit different now:
  1612       In previous moin versions, ldap_login tended to either successfully
  1613       authenticate a user or to completely cancel the whole login process in
  1614       any other case (including ldap server down or exceptions happening).
  1615       This made subsequent auth list entries rather pointless.
  1616       Now it behaves like this:
  1617         * user not found in LDAP -> give subsequent auth list entries a
  1618           chance to authenticate the user (same happens if it finds multiple
  1619           LDAP entries when searching - it logs an additional warning then).
  1620         * user found, but wrong password -> cancel login
  1621         * ldap server not reachable or other exceptions -> give subsequent
  1622           auth list entries a chance
  1623       So please make sure that you really trust every auth list entry you have
  1624       configured when upgrading or it might maybe change behaviour in a
  1625       unexpected or unwanted way.
  1626     * ldap_login now supports failover: if it can't contact your LDAP server
  1627       (e.g. because it is down or unreachable), it will just continue and
  1628       try to authenticate with other authenticators (if there are any in
  1629       cfg.auth list). So if you have some mirroring LDAP backup server, just
  1630       put another authenticator querying it there:
  1631           ldap_auth1 = LDAPAuth(server_uri='ldap://mainserver', ...)
  1632           ldap_auth2 = LDAPAuth(server_uri='ldap://backupserver', ...)
  1633           auth = [ldap_auth1, ldap_auth2, ]
  1635   Developer notes: ===========================================================
  1636     * Page.last_edit() is DEPRECATED, please use Page.edit_info().
  1637     * Page._last_edited() is GONE (was broken anyway), please use
  1638       Page.editlog_entry().
  1639     * New request.send_file() call, making it possible to use server-specific
  1640       optimizations.
  1641     * getText's (aka _()) 'formatted' keyword param (default: True in 1.6 and
  1642       early 1.7) was renamed/changed: it is now called 'wiki' and defaults to
  1643       False. Example calls:
  1644       _('This will NOT get parsed/formatted by MoinMoin!')
  1645       _('This will be parsed/formatted by MoinMoin!', wiki=True)
  1646       _('This will be used as a left side of percent operator. %s',
  1647         wiki=True, percent=True)
  1648     * Page.url 'relative' keyword param (default: True in 1.6 and early 1.7)
  1649       was changed to default False).
  1650     * The themedict no longer contains 'page_user_prefs' and 'user_prefs',
  1651       this may affect custom themes.
  1652     * The rst-parser's admonition class names are no longer prepended with
  1653       "admonition_". Instead the class names are now for example "note"
  1654       and not "admonition_note".
  1657 Version 1.6.3:
  1658   Fixes:
  1659     * Security fix: a check in the user form processing was not working as
  1660       expected, leading to a major ACL and superuser priviledge escalation
  1661       problem. If you use ACL entries other than "Known:" or "All:" and/or
  1662       a non-empty superuser list, you need to urgently install this upgrade.
  1663     * Security fix: if acl_hierarchic=True was used (False is the default),
  1664       ACL processing was wrong for some cases, see
  1665       MoinMoinBugs/AclHierarchicPageAclSupercededByAclRightsAfter
  1666     * For {{transclusion_targets}} we checked the protocol to be http(s),
  1667       this check was removed (because file: and ftp: should work also) and
  1668       it's not moin's problem if the user uses silly protocols that can't
  1669       work for that purpose.
  1670     * Fixed TableOfContents macro for included pages.
  1671     * server_fastcgi: added Config.port = None. If you want to use some port
  1672       (not a fd), you can set it now in your Config, e.g. port = 8888.
  1673     * category: search matches categories even if there are comment lines
  1674       between the horizontal rule and the real categories, e.g.:
  1675       ... some page text ...
  1676       ----
  1677       ## optionally some comments, e.g. about possible categories:
  1678       ## CategoryJustACommentNotFound
  1679       CategoryTheRealAndOnly
  1681       Note: there might be multiple comment lines, but all real categories
  1682             must be on a single line either directly below the ---- or
  1683             directly below some comment lines.
  1685   Other changes:
  1686     * Added 'notes' to config.url_schemas, so you can use notes://notessrv/...
  1687       to invoke your Lotus Notes client.
  1688     * After creating a new user profile via UserPreferences, you are logged
  1689       in with that user (no need to immediately enter the same name/password
  1690       again for logging in).
  1693 Version 1.6.2:
  1694   Fixes:
  1695     * Security fix: check the ACL of the included page for the rst parser's
  1696       include directive.
  1697     * Potential security/DOS fix: we removed cracklib / python-crack support
  1698       in password_checker as it is not thread-safe and caused segmentation
  1699       faults (leading to server error 500 because the moin process died).
  1700     * Fix moin_session code for auth methods other than moin_login (e.g. http).
  1701       If you have worked around this using moin_anon_session, you can remove
  1702       this workaround now (except if you want anon sessions for other reasons).
  1703     * Fix moin_session code to delete invalid session cookies and also create
  1704       a new session cookie if it got a valid user_obj at the same time.
  1705     * Fix xmlrpc applyAuthToken: give good error msg for empty token.
  1706     * Fixed category search, use category:CategoryFoo as search term.
  1707     * xapian_stemming = False (changed default) to workaround some problems
  1708       in the code enabled by it. Fixes the problems when searching for
  1709       lowercase or numeric titles or word fragments with the builtin search.
  1710     * Fix trail for anon users without a session, do not show a single page.
  1711     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/WikiSyncComplainsAboutTooOldMoin.
  1712     * Wiki parser: fixed strange insertion of unwanted paragraphs.
  1713     * Wiki parser: fix interwiki linking:
  1714       Free interwiki links did not change since 1.5 (they still require to match
  1715       [A-Z][A-Za-z]+ for the wikiname part, i.e. a ASCII word beginning with an
  1716       uppercase letter).
  1717       Bracketed interwiki links now behave similar to how they worked in 1.5:
  1718       Moin just splits off the part left of the colon - no matter how it looks
  1719       like. It then tries to find that in the interwiki map. If it is found,
  1720       a interwiki link gets rendered. If it is not found, moin will render a
  1721       link to a local wiki page (that has a colon in the pagename). It will
  1722       also render a local wiki page link if there is no colon at all, of course.
  1723       Examples:
  1724       [[lowercasewikiname:somepage]] does an interwiki link (if in the map).
  1725       [[ABC:n]] does a local link to page ABC:n (if ABC is NOT in the map).
  1726     * Wiki parser: fix interwiki linking for the case that there are query args
  1727       in the interwiki map entry and you give additional query args via link
  1728       markup (uses correct query arg separator now), e.g.:
  1729       [[Google:searchterm|search this|&foo=bar]]
  1730     * Creole parser: fixed bug that prevents images inside links.
  1731     * Python parser: catch indentation error.
  1732     * PageEditor: fixed copyPage for write restricted pages.
  1733     * GUI editor: fixed javascript error with too complex word_rule regex,
  1734       see MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorSyntaxError.
  1735     * Fixed FCKeditor dialog boxes for FireFox3.
  1736     * NewPage macro/newpage action: fixed for non-ascii template pagenames.
  1737     * FootNote macro: Fix MoinMoinBugs/FootNoteNumbering.
  1738     * EmbedObject macro: bug fix for image mimetype
  1739     * WSGI:
  1740       * fix TWikiDraw saving a drawing by also evaluating the query args.
  1741       * work around unpythonic WSGI 1.0 read() API, fixing broken xmlrpc
  1742         putPage with mod_wsgi
  1743     * Fix highlighting (see MoinMoinBugs/SearchForPagesWithComments).
  1744     * Fix logfile code for EACCESS errors.
  1745     * Removed the "logging initialized" log messages because it was issued once
  1746       per request for CGI.
  1748   Other changes:
  1749     * Show "Comments" toggling link in edit bar only if the page really
  1750       contains comments.
  1751     * Made default configuration of surge protection a bit more forgiving,
  1752       especially for edit action which is currently also used for previews.
  1753     * Updated i18n, system/help pages, added Macedonian system text translation.
  1754     * Improved moin xmlrpc write command's builtin docs and auto-append
  1755       ?action=xmlrpc2 to the target wiki url given.
  1758 Version 1.6.1:
  1759   New features:
  1760     * Improved params for [[target|label|params]]:
  1761       Added accesskey link tag attribute, e.g.: [[target|label|accesskey=1]].
  1762       Additionally to specifying link tag attributes (like class=foo), you can
  1763       now also specify &key=value for getting that into the query string of
  1764       the link URL.
  1765       The "&" character is important, don't forget it or it won't get into the
  1766       query string!
  1767       E.g. for an attachment, you can use:
  1768       [[attachment:foo.pdf|Direct download of foo.pdf|&do=get]]
  1769       E.g. for linking to some specific diff, you can use:
  1770       [[SomePage|see that diff|&action=diff,&rev1=23,&rev2=42]]
  1771       See also the updated HelpOnLinking page!
  1772     * AdvancedSearch: make multipe categories/languages/mimetype selections possible
  1773     * Added a configuration directive to only do one bind to the LDAP server.
  1774       This is useful if you bind as the user the first time.
  1775       ldap_bindonce = False # default
  1777   Fixes:
  1778     * Fix XSS issue in login action.
  1779     * Fix wrong pagename when creating new pages on Mac OS X - that was a big
  1780       showstopper for moin 1.6.0 on Mac OS X.
  1781     * Fixed 1.6 migration script:
  1782       Make sorting python 2.3 compatible.
  1783       Just skip corrupted event log lines.
  1784       Fix link conversion by using data.pre160 as data_dir.
  1785       Fix bad /InterWiki pagenames when encountering interwiki links with bad
  1786       wiki names.
  1787       Improve ImageLink conversion by using its argument parser code.
  1788       Added STONEAGE_IMAGELINK (default: False) switch to wiki markup converter,
  1789       toggle it if you had a very old ImageLink macro in production and the
  1790       converter output has target and image interchanged.
  1791       Fixed UnicodeDecodeError for wrongly encoded attachment filenames.
  1792     * Wiki parser:
  1793       Fix parsing of link/transclusion description and params.
  1794       Fix relative attachment targets.
  1795       Fix supported URL schemes (some got lost since 1.5.8).
  1796       Showing an upload link for non-existing non-text/non-image transclusions
  1797       now (like e.g. *.pdf).
  1798     * RST parser: fix attachment: and drawing: processing
  1799     * Fix quickhelp when editing RST markup pages.
  1800     * Fix Despam action: editor grouping was broken, increase time interval
  1801       to 30 days.
  1802     * Fix AdvancedSearch domain:system search crashing.
  1803     * Only switch off xapian search if we didn't use it because of missing index.
  1804     * Fix saving twikidraw drawings by removing 'java' from spider regex.
  1805     * Fix classic theme's unsubscribe icon's action link.
  1806     * Fix AttachFile action: don't show unzip for packages, only show install
  1807       for superuser.
  1808     * Fix "su user" troubles on UserPreferences.
  1809     * Removed unit tests from ?action=test (due to changes in our test
  1810       environment, using py.test now, this was broken).
  1811     * Duplicated the top directories' to wiki/server/ so it gets
  1812       installed by
  1813     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6.0LanguageIgnoreBrowserConfigurationError
  1814     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/MoveAttachmentNotWorkingWithModPython
  1815     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6.0SupplementationAndAccessRights
  1816     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/RenamingUserAllowsOldUsernameToLogin
  1817     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorExcelPasteExpatErrorUnboundPrefix
  1819   Other changes:
  1820     * I18n texts, system and help pages updated, please update your underlay
  1821       directory (see wiki/underlay/...).
  1822     * Improved "moin" script help, invoke it with "moin ... package command --help".
  1823     * Added some .ext -> mimetype mappings missing on some systems (like Mac OS X).
  1824     * Removed ImageLink macro, as this can be easily done with moin wiki link
  1825       syntax now - see HelpOnMacros/ImageLink (the 1.6 migration scripts convert
  1826       all ImageLink calls to moin wiki link syntax).
  1827     * Updated EmbedObject macro.
  1830 Version 1.6.0:
  1831  * This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and also
  1832    less interesting minor changes and fixes. If you want to see full detail,
  1833    read it there:
  1835    It took MoinMoin development a lot of work and time to implement all the new
  1836    and fixed stuff, so please, before asking for support:
  1837    * take the time to read all the stuff below
  1838    * read the new help pages (copy them from wiki/underlay/ directory)
  1840  * HINT: If you are upgrading from a older moin version and want to keep your
  1841    existing data directory, it is essential that you read and follow
  1842    README.migration because the wiki markup and user profiles changed significantly.
  1843    See also more HINTs below...
  1845   New features: ==============================================================
  1847   User interface: ------------------------------------------------------------
  1848     * Removed "underscore in URL" == "blank in pagename magic" - it made more
  1849       trouble than it was worth. If you still want to have a _ in URL, just
  1850       put a _ into pagename.
  1851     * Discussion pages, see FeatureRequests/DiscussionAndOrCommentPages.
  1852     * cfg.password_checker (default: use some simple builtin checks for too
  1853       easy passwords and, if available, python-crack).
  1854       Use password_checker = None to disable password checking.
  1855     * We now have a drafts functionality (no */MoinEditorBackup pages any
  1856       more):
  1857       * If you edit a page and cancel the edit, use preview or save, a draft
  1858         copy gets saved for you to a internal cache area (data/cache/drafts/).
  1859       * If it is a save what you did and it succeeds, the draft copy gets
  1860         killed right afterwards.
  1861       * If you accidentally used cancel or your browser or machine crashes
  1862         after you used preview, then just visit that page again and edit it.
  1863         the editor will notify you that there is a draft of this page and you
  1864         will see a "Load draft" button. Click on it to load the draft into the
  1865         editor and save the page.
  1866       * The draft storage is per user and per page, but only one draft per page.
  1867     * cfg.quicklinks_default and cfg.subscribed_pages_default can be used to
  1868       preload new user profiles with configurable values.
  1869     * attachment links for non-existing attachments look different now:
  1870       the note about the non-existing attachment moved to the link title,
  1871       the link is shown with nonexistent class (grey).
  1872     * attachment embeddings for non-existing attachments show a grey clip
  1873     * The list of InterWiki sites is editable in the wiki (page InterWikiMap),
  1874       it is getting reloaded every minute.
  1875     * We support some new languages and also have new underlay pages, thanks
  1876       to all translators and people helping with the docs!
  1878   Actions: -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1879     * Synchronisation of wikis using the SyncPages action.
  1880     * Xapian (see based indexed search code.
  1881       To use this:
  1882       * Install xapian-core and xapian-bindings on your machine.
  1883         We used 0.9.4, but newer code should hopefully work, too.
  1884       * cfg.xapian_search = True
  1885       * Execute this to build the index:
  1886         $ moin ... index build   # indexes pages and attachments
  1887         $ moin ... index build --files=files.lst  # same plus a list of files
  1888         You should run those commands as the same user you use for your wiki,
  1889         usually this is the webserver userid, e.g.:
  1890         $ sudo -u www-data moin --config=... \
  1891                index build --files=files.lst
  1892     * New searches:
  1893         - LanguageSearch: language:de
  1894         - CategorySearch: category:Homepage
  1895         - MimetypeSearch: mimetype:image/png (for attachments/files)
  1896         - DomainSearch: domain:underlay or domain:standard
  1897         - History Search: available in advanced ui
  1898       Note: Some currently only available when Xapian is used.
  1899     * New config options and their defaults:
  1900         xapian_search        False  enables xapian-powered search
  1901         xapian_index_dir     None   directory for xapian indices
  1902                                     (can be shared for wiki farms)
  1903         xapian_stemming      True   toggles usage of stemmer, fallback
  1904                                     to False if no stemmer installed
  1905         search_results_per_page 10  determines how many hits should be
  1906                                     shown on a fullsearch action
  1907         xapian_index_history False  indexes all revisions of pages to
  1908                                     allow searching in their history
  1909     * Speeded up linkto search by avoiding read locks on the pagelinks file.
  1911     * The action menu now calls the actions for the revision of the page you
  1912       are currently viewing. If you are viewing the current page revision, you
  1913       get the same behaviour as in moin 1.5, but if you are viewing an old
  1914       page revision, action "raw" will now show you the raw text of this OLD
  1915       revision (not of the current revision as moin 1.5 did it).
  1916       Note that not every action does evaluate the rev=XX parameter it gets.
  1917       Also please note that the edit, info, ... links in the editbar do NOT
  1918       use the rev parameter, but operate on the latest page revision (as
  1919       they did in moin 1.5).
  1920     * Info action lost the links for "raw", "print" and "revert" actions,
  1921       because you can now just view an old revision and select those actions
  1922       from the menu there.
  1924     * ?action=sitemap emits a google sitemap (XML), listing all your wiki pages
  1925       and the wiki root URL.
  1926       Page                      Priority / Frequency / Last modification
  1927       --------------------------------------------------------------------
  1928       /                         1.0 / hourly / <now>
  1929       cfg.page_front_page       1.0 / hourly / page last edit
  1930       TitleIndex,RecentChanges  0.9 / hourly / <now>
  1931       content pages             0.5 / daily / page last edit
  1932       system/help pages         0.1 / yearly / page last edit
  1934     * Action DeletePage and RenamePage can now be used for subpages of a page, too.
  1935     * Added Action CopyPage so you can use now an existing page or page hierarchy
  1936       as template for a new page, see FeatureRequests/CloneOrCopyPages.
  1937     * "Package Pages" action supports attachments now.
  1938     * Added SisterPages support:
  1939       * action=sisterpages will generate a list of url pagename lines for all
  1940         pages in your moin wiki.
  1941       * action=pollsistersites will poll all sister sites listed in
  1942         cfg.sistersites = [(wikiname, fetchURL), ...]
  1943         The fetch URL for the sistersites depends on the wiki engine, e.g.:
  1944         # moin based wiki:
  1945         ('MoinExample', '')
  1946         # oddmuse based wiki:
  1947         ('EmacsWiki', '')
  1948         # JspWiki based wiki:
  1949         ('JspWiki', '')
  1950       * If the current page exists on some sister wiki, a link to it will be
  1951         added to the navibar.
  1952       You can use sister wikis for adding another dimension to your wiki UI: use
  1953       it for simple multi language support, or for comments, or anything else
  1954       "related" you need.
  1955       TODO: add sistersites_force with sister sites we link to even if they do not
  1956             have the page yet (will work only for moin as we don't know
  1957             pagename>url transformation of other wikis)
  1958     * showtags action that lists all tags related to a page.
  1959     * action=view does use mimetypes of EmbedObject too and text files will be shown
  1960       by using their colorized parsers
  1962   Macros: --------------------------------------------------------------------
  1963     * RecentChanges:
  1964       * If a change has happened after your bookmark, the updated/new/renamed
  1965         icon links to the bookmark diff.
  1966       * If a page does not exist any more (because it was deleted or renamed),
  1967         we link the deleted icon to the diff showing what was deleted (for the
  1968         delete action). For the rename action, we just show the deleted icon.
  1969     * Conflict icon in RecentChanges is shown if a edit conflict is detected.
  1970     * Enhanced SystemAdmin's user browser, so a SuperUser can enable/disable
  1971       users from there.
  1972     * Included EmbedObject macro for embedding different major mimetypes:
  1973       application, audio, image, video, chemical, x-world. 
  1974       You are able to change the defaults of allowed mimetypes in the config
  1975       var mimetypes_embed. The config var mimetypes_xss_protect is used to deny
  1976       mimetypes. The order of both variables is Allow, Deny (mimetypes_embed,
  1977       mimetypes_xss_protect).
  1978     * Added support for @SELF to the NewPage macro.
  1979     * GetText2 macro that allows to translate messages that contain data.
  1980     * Make the FootNote macro filter duplicates and display a list of numbers
  1981       instead of a list of identical footnotes. Thanks to Johannes Berg for the
  1982       patch.
  1984   Parsers: -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1985     * Moin Wiki parser: Changed markup for links, images and macros, see these
  1986       wiki pages: HelpOnLinking, HelpOnMacros
  1987     * New wiki markup for /* inline comments */ - they get rendered as a span
  1988       with class="comment", see next item:
  1989     * There is a new item in the edit bar: "Comments". If you click it, the
  1990       visibility of all class "comment" tags will be toggled. There is a user
  1991       preferences item "show_comments" to set if the default view shows them or not.
  1992     * The wiki parser can be used with css classes now:
  1993       {{{#!wiki comment
  1994       This will render output within a div with class "comment".
  1995       You can use any wiki markup as usual.
  1996       }}}
  1997       You can also combine multiple css classes like this:
  1998       {{{#!wiki red/dotted/comment
  1999       This will render a red background, dotted border comment section.
  2000       }}}
  2001       The same thing will work for any other css classes you have.
  2002       If the css classes contain the word "comment", they will trigger some
  2003       special feature, see next item:
  2004     * Wiki nested parser/pre sections work now, using this syntax:
  2005       a) just use more curly braces if you have 3 closing in your content:
  2006          {{{{
  2007          }}} <- does not terminate the section!
  2008          }}}}
  2009       b) use {{{ + some magic string:
  2010          {{{somemagicstring
  2011          }}} <- does not terminate the section!
  2012          somemagicstring}}}
  2013       c) {{{whatever#!python
  2014          # py code
  2015          whatever}}}
  2016       Pitfall: stuff like below does not work as it did in 1.5:
  2017          {{{aaa
  2018          bbb}}}
  2019       Solution:
  2020          {{{
  2021          aaa
  2022          bbb
  2023          }}}
  2024     * Added support for ircs: URLs (secure IRC).
  2025     * New text/creole parser that allows you to use WikiCreole 1.0 markup,
  2026       use #format creole.
  2027     * HTML parser (called "html") that allows you to use HTML on the page.
  2028       Thanks to the trac team for the nice code.
  2029     * Added the diff parser from ParserMarket, thanks to Emilio Lopes, Fabien
  2030       Ninoles and Juergen Hermann.
  2032   XMLRPC: --------------------------------------------------------------------
  2033     * actions_excluded now defaults to ['xmlrpc'] - this kind of disables the
  2034       built-in wiki xmlrpc server code (not completely: it will just answer
  2035       with a Fault instance for any request). If you want to use xmlrpc v1 or
  2036       v2, you have to remove 'xmlrpc' from the actions_excluded list (for
  2037       example if you want to use wikisync, mailimport or any other feature
  2038       using xmlrpc). If you enable xmlrpc, it will be possible that someone
  2039       changes your wiki content by using xmlrpc (it will of course honour ACLs).
  2040     * New XMLRPC methods (see doc strings for details):
  2041       * getMoinVersion
  2042       * system.multicall -- multicall support
  2043       * Authentication System: getAuthToken/appyAuthToken
  2044       * getDiff -- method to get binary diffs
  2045       * mergeDiff -- method to local changes remotely
  2046       * interwikiName -- method to get the IWID and the interwiki moniker
  2047       * getAllPagesEx -- method to get the pagelist in a special way (revnos,
  2048         no system pages etc.)
  2049       * getAuthToken -- make and authentication token by supplying username/password
  2050       * applyAuthToken -- set request.user for following xmlrpc calls (within the
  2051                           same multicall)
  2052       * getUserProfile -- method to get user profile data for request.user
  2053     * Added XMLRPC methods for attachment handling. Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2054     * XMLRPC putPage method adjusted to new AuthToken, config vars 
  2055       xmlrpc_putpage_enabled and xmlrpc_putpage_trusted_only removed.
  2057   Scripts / Commandline interface: -------------------------------------------
  2058     * moin export dump now better conforms to the theme guidelines.
  2059     * Added a --dump-user option to the moin export dump command.
  2060       Thanks to Oliver O'Halloran.
  2062   Security / Auth / AntiSpam / etc.: -----------------------------------------
  2063     * Hierarchical ACLs are now supported, i.e. pages inheriting permissions
  2064       from higher-level pages. See HelpOnAccessControlLists.
  2065     * If you have "#acl" (without the quotes) on a page, this means now:
  2066       "this page has own (empty) ACLs, so do not use acl_rights_default here"
  2067       Please note that this is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from having no ACL line at
  2068       all on the page (acl_rights_default is used in that case).
  2069     * Antispam master url is now configurable via cfg.antispam_master_url.
  2070       The default is to fetch the antispam patterns from MoinMaster wiki.
  2071     * Antispam now checks the edit comments against BadContent also.
  2072     * TextCHAs (text-form CAPTCHAs).
  2073       Due to increasingly annoying wiki spammers, we added the option to use
  2074       TextCHAs (for page save (not for preview!), for attachment upload, for
  2075       user creation (not for profile save)).
  2076       This function is disabled by default. If you run a wiki that is editable
  2077       by anonymous or non-approved users from the internet (i.e. All: or Known:
  2078       in ACL terms), you should enable it in your wiki config by:
  2079       textchas = { # DO NOT USE EXACTLY THESE QUESTIONS!!!
  2080           'en': {
  2081               u'H2O is ...': u'water', # bad: too common
  2082               u'2 apples and three bananas makes how many fruits?': ur'(five|5)', # good
  2083               u'2 apples and three pigs makes how many fruits?': ur'(two|2)', # good
  2084               u'2+3': ur'5', # bad: computable
  2085               u'
  2086           },
  2087           'de': { # for german users
  2088               u'H2O ist ...': u'wasser',
  2089           },
  2090       }
  2091       This means that english users will get some random question from the 'en'
  2092       set, german users will get some from the 'de' set. If there is no 'de'
  2093       set configured, moin will fallback to language_default and then to 'en',
  2094       so make sure that you at least have a 'en' set configured (or whatever
  2095       you have set as language_default).
  2096       You need to use unicode for the questions and answers (see that u"...").
  2097       For the answer, you need to give a regular expression:
  2098       * In the easiest case, this is just some word or sentence (first en
  2099         example). It will be matched in a case-insensitive way.
  2100       * For more complex stuff, you can use the power of regular expressions,
  2101         e.g. if multiple answers are correct (second en example). Any answer
  2102         matching the regular expression will be considered as correct, any
  2103         non-matching answer will be considered as incorrect.
  2105       Tipps for making it hard to break for the spammers and easy for the users:
  2106       * Use site-specific (not too common) questions.
  2107       * Don't use too hard questions (annoys legitimate users).
  2108       * Don't use computable questions.
  2109       * Don't reuse textchas from other sites.
  2111       textchas_disabled_group = None # (default)
  2112       Set this to some group name and noone in this group will get textchas.
  2113       E.g.: textchas_disabled_group = u'NoTextChasGroup'
  2115     * The login page gives now the possibility to recover a lost password, thanks to 
  2116       Oliver Siemoneit. This is especially useful for wikis where access to user 
  2117       preferences is restricted by acl.
  2118     * Session handling for logged-in users and (not by default due to expiry
  2119       problems) anonymous users.
  2120     * Updated the ldap_login code from 1.5 branch, supports TLS now.
  2121       See MoinMoin/config/ for supported configuration options
  2122       and their defaults (and please just change what you need to change,
  2123       in your wikiconfig).
  2124     * Interwiki auth: You need to define cfg.trusted_wikis and
  2125        cfg.user_autocreate to use it. Logging in works by entering:
  2126       Name: RemoteWikiName RemoteUserName
  2127       Password: remotepass
  2128       Then moin contacts RemoteWikiName after looking it up in the interwiki
  2129       map and tries to authenticate there using RemoteUserName and remotepass.
  2130       If it succeeds, the remote wiki will return the remote user profile items
  2131       and your local moin will autocreate an account with these values.
  2133   Server / Network / Logging: ------------------------------------------------
  2134     * The standalone server script moved to the toplevel directory. This makes
  2135       it possible to directly start without additional configuration
  2136       to run a MoinMoin DesktopEdition like wiki setup.
  2137       Be careful: DesktopEdition uses relaxed security settings only suitable
  2138       for personal and local use.
  2139     * Added TLS/SSL support to the standalone server. Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2140       To use TLS/SSL support you must also install the TLSLite library
  2141       ( Version 0.3.8 was used for development and
  2142       testing.
  2144     * cfg.log_reverse_dns_lookups [default: True] - you can set this to False
  2145       if rev. dns lookups are broken in your network (leading to long delays
  2146       on page saves). With False, edit-log will only contain IP, not hostname.
  2147     * Added support for "304 not modified" response header for AttachFile get
  2148       and rss_rc actions - faster, less traffic, less load.
  2150     * Added logging framework, using stdlib's "logging" module. Just do
  2151       import logging ; logging.debug("your text"). Depending on configuration
  2152       in the server Config class, your stuff will be written to screen (stderr),
  2153       to a moin logfile, to apache's error.log, etc.:
  2154       logPath = None # 'moin.log'
  2155       loglevel_file = None # logging.DEBUG/INFO/WARNING/ERROR/CRITICAL
  2156       loglevel_stderr = None # logging.DEBUG/INFO/WARNING/ERROR/CRITICAL
  2157       NOTE: this is NOT in wikiconfig, but e.g. in moin.cgi or or ...
  2159     * Added some experimental and disabled code, that uses x-forwarded-for
  2160       header (if present) to get the right "outside" IP before a request
  2161       enters our chain of trusted (reverse) proxies.
  2162       This code has the problem that we can't configure it in wikiconfig, so
  2163       if you want to use it / test it, you have to edit the moin code:
  2164       MoinMoin/request/ - edit proxies_trusted (near the top).
  2165       We will try to make this easier to configure, but there was no time left
  2166       before 1.6.0 release for doing bigger code refactorings needed for that.
  2168   Mail: ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  2169     * You can send email to the wiki now (requires xmlrpc), see:
  2170       FeatureRequests/WikiEmailIntegration, HelpOnConfiguration/EmailSupport
  2172     * Mail notifications contain a link to the diff action so the user
  2173       can see the coloured difference more easily. Thanks to Tobias Polzin.
  2175   Other changes: =============================================================
  2176     * HINT: please copy a new version of your server script from the wiki/server/
  2177       directory and edit it to match your setup.
  2178     * HINT: instead of "from MoinMoin.multiconfig import DefaultConfig" you
  2179       need to use "from MoinMoin.config.multiconfig import DefaultConfig" now.
  2180       You need to change this in your or file.
  2181       See MoinMoin/ for an alternative way if you can't do that.
  2182     * HINT: you need to change some imports (if you have them in your config):
  2183       Old: from MoinMoin.util.antispam import SecurityPolicy
  2184       New: from import SecurityPolicy
  2185       Old: from MoinMoin.util.autoadmin import SecurityPolicy
  2186       New: from import SecurityPolicy
  2187     * HINT: you need to change your auth stuff, the new way is:
  2188       from MoinMoin.auth import moin_login, moin_session
  2189       from MoinMoin.auth.http import http
  2190       auth = [http, moin_login, moin_session]
  2191       Do it in a similar way for other auth methods.
  2192     * HINT: you need to change your url_prefix setting in 2 ways:
  2193       1. The setting is now called url_prefix_static (to make it more clear
  2194          that we mean the static stuff, not the wiki script url).
  2195       2. The strongly recommended (and default) value of it is '/moin_static160'
  2196          for moin version 1.6.0 (and will be ...161 for moin 1.6.1). It is
  2197          possible and recommended to use a very long cache lifetime for static
  2198          stuff now (Expires: access plus 1 year), because we require to change
  2199          the URL of static stuff when the static stuff changes (e.g. on a
  2200          version upgrade of moin) to avoid problems with stale cache content.
  2201          Your moin will be faster with lower load and traffic because of this.
  2202          For standalone server, we use 1 year expiry for static stuff now.
  2203          For Apache, Lighttpd and other "external" servers, you have to care
  2204          for configuring them to use a long expiry and change url_prefix_static
  2205          related configuration on upgrade.
  2206       HINT: if you run standalone or Twisted server, the easiest way to get a
  2207             working configuration (with server configuration matching wiki
  2208             configuration) is to NOT set url_prefix_static at all. Moin will
  2209             use matching configuration defaults in this case.
  2210     * url_prefix_action ['action'] was introduced for lowering load and traffic
  2211       caused by searchengine crawlers. Up to now, crawlers where causing a high
  2212       load in internet moin wikis because they tried to get about everything,
  2213       including all actions linked from the user interface.
  2214       Known crawlers only get 403 for most actions, but nevertheless they first
  2215       tried. There was no means keeping them away from actions due to the rather
  2216       braindead robots.txt standard. You can only disallow pathes there, but
  2217       moin's actions were querystring based, not path based (this would need
  2218       regex support in robots.txt, but there is no such thing).
  2219       This changed now. Moin is able to generate action URLs you can handle in
  2220       robots.txt, like /action/info/PageName?action=info. So if you don't want
  2221       bots triggering actions, just disallow /action/ there. Keep in mind that
  2222       attachments are handled by /action/AttachFile, so if you want attached
  2223       files and pictures indexed by search engine, don't disallow
  2224       /action/AttachFile/ in your robots.txt. In order to use this feature,
  2225       set url_prefix_action in your wikiconfig to e.g. "action".
  2226     * We use (again) the same browser compatibility check as FCKeditor uses
  2227       internally, too. So if GUI editor invocation is broken due to browser
  2228       compatibility issues or a wrong browser version check, please file a bug
  2229       at FCKeditor development or browser development.
  2230     * HINT: We removed Lupy based indexed search code. If you were brave enough
  2231       to use cfg.lupy_search, you maybe want to try cfg.xapian_search instead.
  2233   Developer notes: ===========================================================
  2234     * We moved the IE hacks to theme/css/msie.css that gets included after all
  2235       other css files (but before the user css file) using a conditional
  2236       comment with "if IE", so it gets only loaded for MSIE (no matter which
  2237       version). The file has some standard css inside (evaluated on all MSIE
  2238       versions) and some * html hacks that only IE < 7 will read.
  2239       HINT: if you use custom themes, you want to update them in the same way.
  2240     * autofilters for databrowser widget. Thanks to Johannes Berg for the patch.
  2241     * changed formatter.attachment_link call (it is now more flexible,
  2242       because you can render the stuff between link start and link end yourself)
  2243     * Page.url() does not escape any more. You have to use wikiutil.escape()
  2244       yourself if you want to write the URL to HTML and it contains e.g. &.
  2245     * The testing wikiconfig moved to tests/, the testing wiki
  2246       is now created in tests/wiki/...
  2247     * HINT: Killed "processors" (finally), formatter method changed to:
  2248       formatter.parser(parsername, lines)
  2249     * Refactored some actions to use ActionBase base class.
  2250     * Moved "test" action from wikiaction to MoinMoin/action/
  2251       (and use ActionBase).
  2252     * Moved MoinMoin/ to MoinMoin/config/
  2253     * Moved MoinMoin/ to MoinMoin/config/
  2254     * Moved "SystemInfo" macro from wikimacro to MoinMoin/macro/.
  2255     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/action/
  2256     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/macro/
  2257     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/xmlrpc/
  2258     * Moved stuff to action/ (only used from there).
  2259     * Moved formatter/ to formatter/ (FormatterBase).
  2260     * Moved util/ to parser/
  2261     * Moved / splitted into MoinMoin/request/*.
  2262       Most stuff will be broken, please help fixing it (usually some imports
  2263       will be missing and the adaptor script will need a change maybe):
  2264       Tested successfully: CGI, CLI, STANDALONE, FCGI, TWISTED
  2265     * Moved to security/
  2266     * Moved to security/
  2267     * Moved logfile/ to logfile/
  2268     * Moved to mail/
  2269     * Moved util/ to mail/
  2270     * Moved to auth/
  2271       Moved util/ to auth/
  2272       teared auth code into single modules under auth/* - moin_session handling
  2273       and the builting moin_login method are in auth/
  2274     * Added wikiutil.MimeType class (works internally with sanitized mime
  2275       types because the official ones suck).
  2276     * Renamed parsers to module names representing sane mimetypes, e.g.:
  2277 -> parser.text_moin_wiki
  2278     * Added thread_monitor debugging aid. It can be activated using:
  2279       from MoinMoin.util import thread_monitor; thread_monitor.activate_hook()
  2280       and then triggered by requesting URL ...?action=thread_monitor - please
  2281       be aware that monitoring threads has a big performance impact on its own,
  2282       so you only want to temporarily enable this for debugging.
  2283       By default, it dumps its output to the data_dir as tm_<timestamp>.log,
  2284       you can change this at bottom of action/ if you want to
  2285       see output in your browser.
  2286     * Introduced scope parameter to CacheEntry() - if you specify 'farm', it
  2287       will cache into a common directory for all wikis in the same farm, if you
  2288       specify 'wiki', it will use a cache directory per wiki and if you specify
  2289       'item', it will use a cache directory per item (== per page).
  2290       Creating a CacheEntry without explicit scope is DEPRECATED.
  2291     * Smileys moved from MoinMoin.config to MoinMoin.theme.
  2292     * Removed all _ magic in URLs and filenames.
  2293     * request.action now has the action requested, default: 'show'.
  2294     * Cleaned up duplicated http_headers code and DEPRECATED this function
  2295       call (it was sometimes confused with setHttpHeaders call) - it will
  2296       vanish with moin 1.7, so please fix your custom plugins!
  2297       The replacement is:
  2298           request.emit_http_headers(more_headers=[])
  2299       This call pre-processes the headers list (encoding from unicode, making
  2300       sure that there is exactly ONE content-type header, etc.) and then
  2301       calls a server specific helper _emit_http_headers to emit it.
  2302       Tested successfully: CGI, STANDALONE, FCGI, TWISTED
  2303     * setResponseCode request method DEPRECATED (it only worked for Twisted
  2304       anyway), just use emit_http_headers and include a Status: XXX header.
  2305       Method will vanish with moin 1.7.
  2306     * cfg.url_prefix is DEPRECATED, please use cfg.url_prefix_static.
  2307     * d['title_link'] is not supported any more. You can easily make that link
  2308       on your own in your theme, see example in MoinMoin/theme/,
  2309       function "title".
  2310     * There is a new Page method called Page.get_raw_body_str that returns
  2311       the encoded page body. This is useful if you just deal with byte data
  2312       (e.g. while generating binary diffs).
  2313     * The TagStore/PickleTagStore system is used to store the syncronisation tags.
  2314     * XMLRPC functions may return Fault instances from now on
  2315     * Moin got multicall support, including a module that makes it usable on the
  2316       client-side without requiring Python 2.4
  2317     * Added no_magic to text_html formatter to disable tag autoclosing.
  2318     * MOIN_DEBUG can be set in the environment to let MoinMoin ignore exceptions
  2319       that would lead to a traceback in the browser. Thanks to Raphael Bossek.
  2320     * There is a new MoinMoin.Page.ItemCache class now with automatic cache
  2321       invalidation based on global edit-log. We currently use it to cache page
  2322       acls, speedup Page.get_rev and reading the page local edit-log.
  2323     * Added wikiutil.renderText parse and format raw wiki markup with all page elements.
  2324     * The user file format has changed, old files will be read correctly but
  2325       will silently be upgraded to the new format so old versions will not
  2326       read the new files correctly (this only affects 'subscribed_pages' and
  2327       'quicklinks' which will be lost when downgrading.)
  2330 Version 1.5.8:
  2331   New features:
  2332     * Added timing.log to help performance debugging. Use cfg.log_timing = True
  2333       to update <data_dir>/timing.log (default is False, meaning no logging).
  2335       Example log entries:
  2338       Timestamp       PID   Timing Flag action     URL
  2339       -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  2340       20070512 184401 22690 vvv         None
  2341       20070512 184401 22690 0.267s    - show
  2343       Timestamp: YYYYMMDD HHMMSS (UTC)
  2344       PID: the process ID of the moin process
  2345       Timing: when action starts, it will be "vvv"
  2346               when it ends, it logs the total time it needed for execution
  2347       Flag (some are only logged at end of action):
  2348       +   Page exists
  2349       -   Page does not exist
  2350       B   user agent was recognized as bot / spider
  2351       !x! Action took rather long (the higher the x, the longer it took - this
  2352           makes it easy to grep for problematic stuff).
  2353       Action: action name (None is when no action was specified, moin assumes
  2354               "show" for that case)
  2355       URL: the requested URL
  2357       For more information about tuning your moin setup, see:
  2359     * Added support for ircs, webcal, xmpp, ed2k and rootz protocols - we
  2360       moved all protocols to config.url_schemas, so this is not empty any more.
  2361       It is possible to use these protocols now on wiki pages and in the
  2362       navi_bar. We just generate the URLs, it is up to your browser what it
  2363       does when clicking on those links.
  2364     * cfg.traceback_show (default: 1) can be used to disable showing tracebacks.
  2365       cfg.traceback_log_dir (default: None) can be used to set a directory
  2366       that is used to dump traceback files to. Your users will get a notice to
  2367       which (random) file in that directory the traceback was been written.
  2368       NOTE: while you can feel free to set traceback_show = 0 and
  2369       traceback_log_dir = None, we will also feel free to reject bug reports
  2370       when you (or your site's users) don't give us enough information (like a
  2371       traceback file) to debug the problem. If you set traceback_show = 0,
  2372       we recommend pointing traceback_log_dir to a directory with reasonable
  2373       free space and putting a page onto your wiki that describes who has to
  2374       get contacted (usually the wiki server admin) in case a traceback happens.
  2375       The admin can then locate the traceback file and submit it to moin
  2376       development, if the bug is not already known (see MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs).
  2377       Of course we will also need all the other details of a bug report, not
  2378       only the traceback file.
  2380   Other changes:
  2381     * Updated spider agents list.
  2382     * Reduce bot/spider cpu usage for SystemInfo, OrphanedPages, WantedPages,
  2383       PageHits, PageSize, WordIndex macros (we just return nothing for bots).
  2385   Bugfixes:
  2386     * XSS fixes, see (item 1 and 2).
  2387     * ACL security fixes:
  2388       * MonthCalendar respects ACLs of day pages now.
  2389       * Check the ACL for the rst markup include directive.
  2390     * Fixed cleaning of edit comments (control chars in there could damage
  2391       edit-log).
  2392     * Fixed in-process caching of antispam patterns (didn't update the cache
  2393       for multi-process, persistent servers).
  2394     * Correct encoding/decoding for surge-log data, fixes leftover
  2395       surge-logXXXXXXX.tmp files in data/cache/surgeprotect.
  2396     * Fixed mode of cache files (mkstemp creates them with 0600 mode).
  2397     * Symbolic entities with numbers (like &sup2;) did not work, fixed.
  2398     * We open data/error.log earlier now and we also use it for FastCGI.
  2399     * Fixed unicode cfg.page_group_regex.
  2400     * Fixed moin.spec to use english date format.
  2401     * GUI converter: fixed conversion of relative wiki links.
  2402     * Fixed NewPage macro button label to not be formatted as wiki text.
  2404 Version 1.5.7:
  2405   New features:
  2406     * added url_prefix_local which is used for stuff that must be loaded from
  2407       same site as the wiki engine (e.g. FCKeditor GUI editor applet), while
  2408       url_prefix can be a remote server serving the static files (css/img).
  2409       If not set (or set to None), url_prefix_local will default to the value
  2410       of url_prefix.
  2411     * We save some CPU and disk I/O by having EditTemplates and LikePages macro
  2412       (both used on MissingPage) check whether the requesting entity was
  2413       identified as a spider (e.g. search engine bot) and do nothing in that
  2414       case. Normal users won't see any difference.
  2415     * For AttachFile, you can now choose to overwrite existing files of same
  2416       name (nice for updating files).
  2418   Bugfixes:
  2419     * XSS Fixes:
  2420       * fixed unescaped page info display.
  2421       * fixed unescaped page name display in AttachFile, RenamePage and
  2422         LocalSiteMap actions
  2423     * WantedPages listed existing pages that are not readable for the user,
  2424       but are linked from pages that ARE readable for the user (so this is NOT
  2425       a privacy/security issue). We now don't list those pages any more as it
  2426       is pointless/confusing, the user can't read or edit there anyway.
  2427     * MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsUsesNonExistingIncludeLinks
  2428     * MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/ActionsExcludedTriggerError
  2429     * GUI editor/converter:
  2430       * ignore <col>/<colgroup>/<meta> elements
  2431       * support <a> within blockquote
  2432     * Remove generated=... attribute from pagelink html output (this attr is
  2433       for internal use only). w3c validator is now happier again.
  2434     * Fixed css class "userpref" (not: "userprefs") of the Login form.
  2435     * Fixed the version number check in the xslt parser for 4suite >= 1.0.
  2436     * We reset the umask to the wanted value every request. This should fix
  2437       wrong file modes when used with Twisted (twistd uses a hardcoded 0077
  2438       umask in daemonize()).
  2439     * Avoid trouble when saving pages with antispam function when MoinMaster
  2440       wiki is having troubles (catch xmlrpc Fault).
  2442   Other changes:
  2443     * Standalone server does not do reverse DNS lookups any more (this is a
  2444       standard feature of BaseHTTPServer stdlib module, but we override this
  2445       now and just print the IP).
  2446     * We moved the IE hacks to theme/css/msie.css that gets included after all
  2447       other css files (but before the user css file) using a conditional
  2448       comment with "if IE", so it gets only loaded for MSIE (no matter which
  2449       version). The file has some standard css inside (evaluated on all MSIE
  2450       versions) and some * html hacks that only IE < 7 will read.
  2451       HINT: if you use custom themes, you want to update them in the same way.
  2452     * Improved ldap auth:
  2453       * cfg.ldap_name_attribute was removed because of new cfg.ldap_filter.
  2454         If you had ldap_name_attribute = 'sAMAccountName' before, just use
  2455         ldap_filter = '(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)' now.
  2456       * New cfg.ldap_filter used for the ldap filter string used in the ldap
  2457         search instead of the rather limited, partly hardcoded filter we used
  2458         before. This is much more flexible:
  2459         ldap_filter = '(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)'
  2460         You can also do more complex filtering expressions like:
  2461         '(&(cn=%(username)s)(memberOf=CN=WikiUsers,OU=Groups,DC=example,DC=org))'
  2462       * Added some processing to filter out result entries with dn == None.
  2463       * We set REFERRALS option to 0 before initializing the ldap server
  2464         connection (this seems to be needed for Active Directory servers).
  2465       * We support self-signed ssl certs for ldaps - completely untested.
  2466       * New cfg.ldap_surname_attribute (usually 'sn'), was hardcoded before.
  2467       * New cfg.ldap_givenname_attribute (usually 'givenName'), hardcoded before.
  2468       * New cfg.ldap_aliasname_attribute (usually 'displayName') - if this
  2469         attribute is not there or empty (in the results of the ldap lookup for
  2470         the user), we just make up the aliasname from surname and givenname
  2471         attribute.
  2472       * We only request the attributes we need from ldap (was: all attrs).
  2473       * We deny user login (and break out of auth chain) for the following cases:
  2474         * if a user is not found by ldap lookup
  2475         * if we find more than one matching entry
  2476         * if the password is empty or incorrect
  2477         * if some exception happens
  2478       * Please note that there is an updated ldap sample config in directory
  2479         wiki/config/more_samples/.
  2480       * Added experimental LDAP SSL/TLS support (untested, please help testing),
  2481         see also the sample config.
  2482     * Work around a IE7 rendering problem with long pages getting more and
  2483       more narrow. We just applied the same "fix" as we used for IE6, using
  2484       "display: none" for span.anchor for IE browsers.
  2485     * RSS feed related:
  2486       * We used to emit a <link> tag for the action=rss_rc RSS feed on any
  2487         page. This was changed, we now emit that link only on RecentChanges and
  2488         the current user's language translation of RecentChanges.
  2489         This was changed because Google Toolbar requests the RSS feed linked
  2490         by such a link tag every time it sees one. Thus, if you used the wiki
  2491         normally, it requested the RSS feed every few seconds and caused
  2492         problems due to surge protection kicking in because of that.
  2493       * HINT for custom theme users: if your theme code calls
  2494         rsslink(), then you need to change that to rsslink(d) for 1.5.7+.
  2497 Version 1.5.6:
  2498   A general security notice:
  2499       Check your Python version, there was a buffer overflow issue in Python
  2500       recently! Details:
  2502   Bugfixes:
  2503     * Fix AttributeError traceback with Standalone server (if_modified_since)
  2504     * Fix AttachFile "304 not modified" and redirect status code for Twisted
  2505     * http auth: we now decode username and password to unicode (using
  2506       config.charset == utf-8). Same for SSL client cert auth and CN.
  2507     * Avoid infinite recursion in Page.parsePageLinks.
  2508     * Fixed standalone server failing to shutdown if interface == "".
  2509     * Now MoinMoin does not think anymore that every page links to various user
  2510       homepages.
  2511     * Made the irssi parser more tolerant (Thanks to "TheAnarcat").
  2512     * Now multiple formatters can be used per request, the send_page code was
  2513       not reentrant to this regard. Fixes "empty" search results.
  2514     * Fixed problem with "=" in ImageLink macro links.
  2515     * Not a moin bug, but a silly stdlib os.tempnam function made trouble to
  2516       some people because it lets you override the path given in the code
  2517       by setting the environment variable TMP(DIR). We now use a different
  2518       function to avoid renaming trouble when TMP(DIR) points to a different
  2519       file system.
  2520     * Fixed antispam update on every save (Thanks to "TheAnarcat").
  2521     * GUI converter: don't throw away rowclass for tables.
  2522     * GUI editor formatter: allow height for table cells.
  2523     * GUI editor formatter: comment texts are output using the formatter now. 
  2525   New features:
  2526     * Mail notifications contain a link to the diff action so the user
  2527       can see the coloured difference more easily. Thanks to Tobias Polzin.
  2528     * FeatureRequests/MoveAttachments - you can move attachments from one
  2529       page to another (and also rename the attachment at the same time).
  2530       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2531     * Added support for linking to attachment: and inline: URLs with ImageLink.
  2532     * Added UNIX socket support for FastCGI, just set the port to some (socket)
  2533       filename. Details see: MoinMoin:FeatureRequests/FastCgiUnixSocket
  2534     * [[Attachlist(pagename,mimetype)]] lists attachments of pagename (default:
  2535       current page) with optional mimetype restriction (default: all).
  2536       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2538   Other changes:
  2539     * Minor performance improvements (might be noticeable if you have many
  2540       custom navi_bar entries and high server load).
  2541     * Avoid usage of no-cache because it breaks attachment download on IE6.
  2542       This is a IE bug, not a moin bug.
  2543     * Added XHTML to the unsafe list.
  2544     * Changed the rst parser to be compatible to the new docutils interface
  2545       for directives.
  2546     * Updated EmbedObject macro.
  2549 Version 1.5.5a:
  2550   Bugfixes:
  2551     * fixed ticket creation to only use constant values
  2553 Version 1.5.5:
  2554   HINT: read docs/README.migration.
  2555   HINT: there was NO change in the underlay/ pages since 1.5.4.
  2556   HINT: If you experience problems with the reStructured Text (rst) parser,
  2557         please downgrade docutils to "0.4" because there were major interface
  2558         breaking API refactorings on the docutils trunk.
  2560   Bugfixes:
  2561     * GUI editor fixes:
  2562       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorModifiesInterwikiPreferred.
  2563       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TableAlignmentProbsWithGUI.
  2564     * Not a moin bug, but it severely annoyed IE users and also was less
  2565       comfortable for users of other browser: since about 1.5.4, we served
  2566       attachments with Content-Disposition: attachment - so that the user has
  2567       to save them to disk. This was to fix a possible XSS attack using attached
  2568       HTML files with Javascript inside for stealing your moin cookie or doing
  2569       other nasty things. We improved this by using different behaviour depending
  2570       on the potential danger the attached file has when served inline:
  2571       mimetypes_xss_protect = ['text/html', 'application/x-shockwave-flash', ]
  2572       This is the default value. If you know more dangerous stuff, please just
  2573       add the mimetypes there to protect your users and file a bug report
  2574       telling us what we missed.
  2575     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ReStructuredTextRelativeLinksBroken, thanks to Stefan
  2576       Merten.
  2577     * Make tickets used for some actions more safe.
  2579   New features:
  2580     * edit_ticketing [True] - we protect page save by a ticket (same stuff we
  2581       already use for DeletePage and RenamePage action).
  2582       NOTE: If you don't use your browser for editing, but some tool like
  2583             "editmoin" or "MoinMoin plugin for jEdit", you'll need an update
  2584             of them supporting the ticket.
  2585             Alternatively, you can use edit_ticketing = False setting - this
  2586             is not recommended for internet wikis as it will make spamming them
  2587             easier.
  2588     * If we detect some spammer, we kick him out by triggering surge protection
  2589       (if surge protection is not disabled).
  2591 Version 1.5.5rc1:
  2592   Bugfixes:
  2593     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/XmlRpcBrokenForFastCgi - thanks to Johannes Berg.
  2594     * Fixed gui editor converter confusing of `` and {{{}}} markup.
  2595     * Fixed emission of HTTP headers (esp. Vary: Cache-Control:).
  2596     * Fixed a bad crash that happens (on ANY page!) when you put a *Dict
  2597       page's name as a member into a *Group page.
  2598     * Fix MyPages action title to use an unformatted string.
  2599     * Fix double quoted-printable encoding in generated emails (note: this is
  2600       not a moin bug - this just works around bugs in python stdlib).
  2601     * Fix mode of drawing files (use config.umask).
  2602     * Fix trouble with /?action= urls by dropping getPageNameFromQueryString
  2603       code. 
  2604     * Fixed sre unpickle issues seen on some machines by avoiding to pickle
  2605       the regex.
  2606     * Fix Clock code, add more timers.
  2607     * Worked around FastCGI problem on Lighttpd: empty lines in the error log.
  2608     * Fix (add) locking for caching's .remove() call, small fixes to lock code.
  2609     * Print error message when --target-dir=path is missing from moin export
  2610       dump command.
  2612   New features:
  2613     * Added support for "304 not modified" response header for AttachFile get
  2614       and rss_rc actions - faster, less traffic, less load.
  2615     * Limit rss with full diffs to 5 items.
  2616     * Allow surge_action_limits = None to disable surge protection.
  2617     * moin.fcg improved - if you use FastCGI, you must use the new file:
  2618       * can self-terminate after some number of requests (default: -1, this
  2619         means "unlimited lifetime")
  2620       * the count of created threads is limited now (default: 5), you can use
  2621         1 to use non-threaded operation.
  2622       * configurable socket.listen() backlog (default: 5)
  2623     * Added indonesian i18n (id).
  2624     * Some measures against spammers trying to brute force their spam into moin.
  2625     * EmbedObject macro: added mov, mpg and midi support
  2626     * moin ... export dump --target-dir=PATH --page=PAGENAME_REGEX
  2627       You must specify --target-dir (where dump will write the html files to)
  2628       and you may specify --page and either a page name or a regex used to
  2629       match all pages you want to export. Default is to export all pages.
  2631   Other changes:
  2632     * Tuning:
  2633       * more efficient locking code on POSIX platforms, we do much less I/O
  2634         for locking now
  2635       * removed most chmod calls in favour of a single os.umask call
  2636     * Improved Python 2.5 compatibility. Note: if you think that MoinMoin
  2637       is using too much RAM, you might want to look at Python 2.5 because
  2638       of its improved memory management.
  2639     * Throw away SAVE comments longer than 200 chars (you can't enter those by
  2640       the user interface, so only spammer using automatic POSTs do them).
  2641     * Updated spider user agent list.
  2642     * BadContent and LocalBadContent now get noindex,nofollow robots header,
  2643       same as POSTs.
  2644     * Standalone opens it logfile unbuffered from now on, thanks to
  2645       Carsten Grohmann.
  2646     * Avoid trouble when request.write() data contains None, just skip it -
  2647       thanks to Juergen Hermann.
  2648     * Instead of showing a ConfigurationError, moin now emits "404 Not found"
  2649       http headers and a hint about what could be wrong. This won't fill up
  2650       your logs just because of typos and spiders still trying old URLs.
  2653 Version 1.5.4:
  2654     HINT: read docs/README.migration.
  2655 Version 1.5.4-current:
  2656     * increased maxlength of some input fields from 80 to 200
  2658 Version 1.5.current:
  2659   Developer notes:
  2660     * We switched to Mercurial SCM, see here for more infos:
  2663   Bugfixes:
  2664     * fix MonthCalendar macro for non-ASCII pagenames (thanks to Jonas Smedegaard)
  2665     * remove 'search' and 'google' from bot user agent list and add some more
  2666       specific terms
  2667     * Fix the forgotten password email login URL and also properly encode the
  2668       email body. Thanks to Robin Dunn for the patch.
  2669     * Applied a patch by Matthew Gilbert for increased compatiblity with
  2670       latest docutils.
  2673 Version 1.5.3:
  2674   New Features:
  2675     * Added CSS classes for TableOfContents macro.
  2677   Bug Fixes:
  2678     * GUI editor / GUI editor converter:
  2679       * Fixed missing GUI editor link in edit bar.
  2680       * Fixed table/row/cell style spaces.
  2681       * Changed <p> generation for macros.
  2682       * Fixed handling of subpages.
  2683       * Fixed processing of complex list elements (thanks to Craig Markwardt).
  2684       * Fixed processing of html \n (thanks to Craig Markwardt).
  2685       * Fixed joining of comment lines with text below them.
  2686       * Fixed table height attribute crash.
  2687     * Fixed sslclientcert auth.
  2688     * Added some missing files to i18n processing, translatable strings more
  2689       complete now.
  2690     * Change <p> generation from self-closing (<p />) to auto-closing (only
  2691       emit <p>, let browser find place for </p>).
  2692     * Fix eating of newline before tables.
  2693     * Fixed incorrect login hint for not logged-in users trying a disallowed
  2694       action.
  2695     * Fixed nasty missing or double </a> formatter bug (mostly happening when
  2696       user has enabled questionmarks for nonexisting pages).
  2698   Other Changes:
  2699     * We catch and ignore html to wiki conversion errors in case of hitting
  2700       the cancel button, so you can get out of the error screen.
  2702 Version 1.5.3-rc2:
  2703   New Features:
  2704     * Modified SystemInfo macro to give human readable units and disk usage
  2705     * cfg.editor_quickhelp makes the quick help below the editor configurable
  2706       (at least as far as the default_markup is concerned). If set to None,
  2707       it doesn't display any quickhelp. Thanks to Seth Falcon for the patch.
  2709   Bugfixes:
  2710     * Fixed double class attribute for nonexistent links
  2711     * Fixed double </a> with qm_noexist option
  2712     * Fixed table xxx="yyy" style attribute parsing
  2713     * If not (editor_force and editor_default == 'text') then display GUI mode
  2714       switch button (this is only a partial fix, but enough to deny the GUI
  2715       mode to your users completely)
  2716     * Fixed XSS issue which could lead to cookie theft etc.
  2717     * Fixed definition list "same level" indenting.
  2718     * Fixed pagename in log for PackagePages action.
  2719     * Made <p> self-closing and line-anchors more well-behaved, thanks to
  2720       Martin Wilck for the patch. I didn't apply the <ol> patch, because this
  2721       is no real problem, just a problem of a bad standard.
  2722     * Fixed gui editor *bgcolor crash.
  2723     * Support/Fix tableclass attr with gui editor.
  2725   Other changes:
  2726     * Moved back UserPreferences action link from menu to top of page (renaming
  2727       it to "Preferences"), added "Cancel" button to make it possible to return
  2728       to the previous page without saving preferences.
  2729     * Removed formatter.url "attrs" keyword arg that took premade html, we use
  2730       separate kw args per attribute now.
  2731     * Moved broken tests to MoinMoin/_tests/broken (= disabling them).
  2732       All "active" tests run ok now.
  2733       If you want to compare, I included the output of this test run:
  2734       $ make test >tests/make_test.out
  2737 Version 1.5.3-rc1:
  2739   New features:
  2740     * HINT: please read README.migration
  2741     * Login and Logout are actions now, therefore you stay on the page where
  2742       you were before.
  2743     * UserPreferences is also an action now and moved from top border (in
  2744       modern theme) to the "more actions" dropdown menu. You also stay on the
  2745       same page.
  2746     * There is also a [[Login]] macro now. You can put it on any page you want
  2747       and if the user is not logged in, it renders the login form. If the user
  2748       is logged in, it doesn't render anything.
  2749     * We check cfg.superuser to be a list of user names (as documented) and
  2750       deny superuser access if it is not. This avoids security issues by
  2751       wrong configuration.
  2752     * auth methods changed:
  2753       HINT: if you wrote own auth methods, please change them as you see in
  2754             MoinMoin/ and test them again before relying on them.
  2755       * now get a user_obj kw argument that is either a user object returned
  2756         from a previous auth method or None (if no user has been made up yet).
  2757         The auth method should either return a user object (if it has
  2758         determined one) or what it got as user_obj (being "passive") or None
  2759         (if it wants to "veto" some user even if a previous method already has
  2760         made up some user object).
  2761       * return value of continue_flag is now True in most cases (except if
  2762         it wants to "veto" and abort).
  2763       * moin_cookie auth method now logs out a user by deleting the cookie and
  2764         setting user_obj.valid = 0. This makes it possible to still get the
  2765         user's name in subsequent auth method calls within the same request.
  2766       * added ldap_login and smb_mount auth methods, see MoinMoin/ and
  2767         wiki/config/more_samples/
  2768     * MonthCalendar now takes an additional argument for specifying a template
  2769       to use to directly invoke the page editor when clicking on non-existing
  2770       day pages.
  2771     * Added ImageLink macro. Thanks to Jeff Kunce, Marcin Zalewski, Reimar
  2772       Bauer and Chong-Dae Park for working on it.
  2773     * Lupy stuff (still experimental, partly broken and disabled by default):
  2774       * Attachment search using lupy (lupy_search = 1 in your config)
  2775         Title search will also search attachment filenames.
  2776         Full text search will also search attachment contents.
  2777       * Indexing filter plugins, see MoinMoin:FiltersForIndexing
  2778         Some filters depend on external converters that might not be available
  2779         for any platform (see Depends: line in filter plugin).
  2780         Feel free to contribute more filter plugins, especially if you wrote
  2781         some nice platform independant filter in Python for some popular file
  2782         format! Filters implemented so far (depending on):
  2783         MS Word, RTF, MS Excel (antiword, catdoc)
  2784         PDF (pdftotext)
  2785 XML based data formats (-)
  2786         XML, HTML (-)
  2787         text/* (-)
  2788         JPEG's EXIF data (-)
  2789         Binary generic (-)
  2790       * As you might know, Lupy is "retired" (that means it isn't developped
  2791         by its authors any more). We are currently evaluating Xapian as new
  2792         indexing search engine in moin.
  2793         If we succeed, we will replace Lupy stuff by some Xapian interface
  2794         code in moin.
  2795         But: the filters will likely stay, as we also need them with Xapian.
  2797     * A new MoinMoin script interface was introduced:
  2799       Syntax: moin [options] <cmdmodule> <cmdname> [options]
  2801       For example:
  2802       moin --config-dir=/my/cfgdir \
  2803            export dump --page=WikiSandBox
  2805       This will call the "moin" script, which will use the --config-dir and
  2806       --wiki-url options to initialize, then it will go to MoinMoin.script
  2807       module, import the export.dump module from there and run it, providing
  2808       the additional --page value to it.
  2810       The old scripts that have not been migrated to this new interface can
  2811       still be found in MoinMoin/script/old/ - including the old migration
  2812       scripts.
  2813     * moin ... account create --name=JoeDoe
  2814     * moin ... account disable --name=JoeDoe
  2815     * moin ... acount check     <-- this is what usercheck script was before
  2816     * moin ... maint cleancache <-- this is what cachecleaner script was
  2817     * moin ... maint cleanpage  <-- this is what pagescleaner script was
  2819   Bugfixes:
  2820     * cookie_lifetime didn't work comfortable for low values. The cookie was
  2821       created once on login and never updated afterwards. So you got logged
  2822       out cookie_lifetime hours later, no matter whether you were active at
  2823       that time or not. This has been changed, we update the cookie expiry now
  2824       on every request, so it will expire cookie_lifetime after your last
  2825       request (not after login).
  2826     * Fixed logout problems when using cfg.cookie_path.
  2827     * Fixed cookie_path for root url wikis.
  2828     * Lupy search now behaves a bit less funky. Still no guarantees...
  2829     * We lowered the twisted server timeout to 2 minutes now (was: 10) because
  2830       it just used up too many files (open TCP connections until it timeouts)
  2831       on our farm.
  2832     * The algorithm used for processing the farmconfig.wikis list was changed
  2833       to work for big farms (>= 50 wikis), too. This works around the python
  2834       "re" module limitation of having a maximum of 100 named groups in a RE.
  2835     * Fixed a TypeError which occurred for formatters that dislike None values.
  2836       (cf.
  2837     * Fixed GUI editor converter error for https:... image URLs.
  2838     * ThemeBase (use by modern/rightsidebar): removed duplicate AttachFile from
  2839       actions menu (we already have it in editbar).
  2840     * Speedup group/dicts scanning for persistent servers.
  2841     * Implemented HEAD requests for standalone server, this should fix some of
  2842       the strange effects happening when using "Save as" on attachments.
  2843     * Not a moin bug, but rather a workaround for non-standard non-ASCII DNS
  2844       hostnames: we just use the IP instead of crashing now.
  2845     * Spurious cyclic usage error in i18n fixed.
  2846     * Fixed antispam for python 2.5a xmlrpclib.
  2847     * I18n for linenumber toggle in listings.
  2848     * All action menu entries are translatable now.
  2850   Other:
  2851     * Added css classes for the rst admonitions. Thanks to TiagoMacambira!
  2853 Version 1.5.2:
  2855   New features:
  2856     * Added FullSearchCached macro which is statically cached.
  2857       Use it if you do not depend on fresh search results but prefer raw speed.
  2858     * Added surge protection, see HelpOnConfiguration/SurgeProtection.
  2859     * Allow hex and symbolic entities.
  2860     * If there is a user with empty password, we just generate a random one
  2861       when he requests it getting sent by mail. Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2862     * The superuser now can switch to another user using UserPreferences -
  2863       nice to help your users when they forgot their password or need other
  2864       help. You need to logout/relogin to use your own userid afterwards.
  2865       This function only works correctly if you use moin_cookie authentication.
  2866       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2867     * Add new markup for bulletless lists: just use a "." instead of "*".
  2869   Other changes:
  2870     * Added "voyager" to bot useragent list.
  2871     * Added locking for caching subsystem.
  2872     * Deron Meranda's formatter API cleanup.
  2873     * Added div and span to formatter API.
  2874     * Removed old unfinished form and export code.
  2875     * updated i18n
  2877   Fixes:
  2878    * Fixed table attribute parsing.
  2879    * Fixed cookie handling wrt properties adherance.
  2880    * The new "." list markup makes it possible to have a bulletless list with
  2881      elements on the same level. Before this change and only using indentation
  2882      with blanks, that would get merged into a single paragraph.
  2883    * It is possible now to have multiple paragraphs in the same list element,
  2884      just leave an empty line in between the paragraphs.
  2885    * Fixed GAP processing for ordered lists.
  2886    * Fix text_gedit formatter's invalid list nesting.
  2887    * Fixed hr crash in blockquote (but needs more work).
  2888    * Fixed FootNote's formatter usage.
  2889    * Fixed rst's headline levels.
  2890    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/WikiParserThinksItIsInsidePreWhenItIsNot
  2891    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ListItemGeneratedOutsideList
  2892    * Fixed that macros were followed by a wrong <p>.
  2893    * Added <blockquote> to the block elements in the text_html formatter,
  2894      so it does not close it erratically when you close a inner <p>.
  2895    * GUI editor converter now also accept http: urls without // (relative or
  2896      same server urls).
  2897    * Fixed the DocBook parser in cases where the pagename was non-ascii.
  2898    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ProcessInlineDontSupportUlElement
  2901 Version 1.5.1:
  2903   Fixes:
  2904     * Fixed rst parser docutils version check
  2905     * Repaired attachment unzipping feature.
  2906     * Fixed the AddRevision command of the PackageInstaller.
  2907     * improved the migration scripts (used to migrate pre-1.3 wikis to 1.3+):
  2908       * do not crash on empty lines in event log
  2909       * fix edit log format for very old moin data (like 0.11)
  2910       * workaround for an ugly win32 operating system bug leading to wiki text
  2911         file mtime not matching edit logs timestamp values if there was some
  2912         timezone change since last edit (e.g. a daylight saving tz switch),
  2913         but differing 3600s.
  2914         This affected pre-1.3 moin wiki servers running on win32 OS only.
  2915         We now try to correct those inconsistencies in mig05 by fuzzy matching.
  2916     * fixed bracketed link scheme icon (css class)
  2917     * we included a modified copy of Python 2.4.2's as some previous
  2918       python versions seem to have problems (2.3.x, x < 5 and also 2.4[.0]),
  2919       see:
  2920       Our own was slightly modified to run on 2.3.x and 2.4.x.
  2921     * Fixed the problem of not being able to change the date/time format back
  2922       to "Default" (UserPreferences).
  2923     * We generate the GUI editor footer now the same way as the text editor
  2924       footer.
  2925     * Include a CSS workaround for yet another IE bug, see:
  2926       MoinMoinBugs:InternetExplorerPeekABooBugInRightSideBar
  2927     * classic theme: added GUI editor link
  2928     * classic theme: added pagename header to editor screen
  2929     * the "mail enabled" check now also checks whether mail_from is set
  2931   Other changes:
  2932     * Updated FCKeditor to current CVS (2006-01-08 == 2.2+)
  2933     * Split up show_hosts into show_hosts and show_names
  2934     * attachment:file%20with%20spaces.txt in attachment list
  2935     * added support for file:// in GUI editor link dialogue, see also:
  2936       MoinMoin:FileLinks
  2937     * cfg.mail_smarthost now supports "server:port" syntax, the default port
  2938       is 25, of course.
  2939     * removed unused kwargs showpage/editable/form from wikiutil.send_footer
  2940     * updated i18n (translation texts, additional languages)
  2941     * removed interwiki:pagename from print view's top of page, added it to
  2942       the "lasted edited" line at bottom right.
  2945 Version 1.5.0:
  2946   HINT: 1.5.0 uses the same data/pages format as 1.3.x. The only thing you want
  2947         to check is whether the 1.5.x version you are upgrading to has NEW mig
  2948         scripts compared to the version you are running now (e.g. in 1.3.5 we
  2949         added some scripts that fixed some small problems).
  2950         See the MoinMoin/scripts/migration/ directory.
  2951         You must run every mig script in sequence and only ONCE ever.
  2952   Fixes:
  2953     * Fix <x=y> table attributes parsing. Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2954     * Fixed a few bugs in the reStructured text parser. Note that you
  2955       need to install docutils 0.3.10 or newer (snapshot from December 2005
  2956       or newer) to make reStructuring parsing work:
  2957      * Case preservation for anonymous links
  2958      * MoinMoin links get the appropriate CSS class
  2959      * Images do not get special CSS markup anymore
  2960      Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2961     * Fixed a bug in the WSGI code which led to incorrect exception handling.
  2962     * Removed all nationality flags. They used to be used for indicating some
  2963       specific language (NOT nationality) and this was simply wrong and a bad
  2964       idea.
  2965     * Fixed some header rendering issues (CSS).
  2966     * SystemAdmin macro now checks against cfg.superuser list.
  2968   Other changes:
  2969     * Added turkish i18n. To be considered as alpha as it got in last minute.
  2972 Version 1.5.0rc1:
  2973   This is the first release candidate of MoinMoin 1.5.0.
  2975   Fixes:
  2976     * fixed broken logs when a DeletePage (maybe also RenamePage) comment
  2977       contained CR/LF characters (could happen when using copy&paste)
  2978     * fixed GUI editor MoinEditorBackup page containing HTML instead of wiki
  2979       markup
  2980     * fixed invalid HTML in FootNotes
  2981     * fixed HTML source in EditorBackup after canceling GUI editor
  2982     * Footnotes of included pages are not shown at the bottom of the including page.
  2983     * Bug in Dict handling that often breaks first entry
  2985 Version 1.5.0beta6:
  2986   Authentication:
  2987     * Added SSO module for PHP based apps. Currently supported: eGroupware 1.2.
  2988       No need to login in two systems anymore - MoinMoin will read the PHP session
  2989       files.
  2991   Fixes:
  2992     * Improved rendering of bullet lists and external links in Restructured text.
  2993       Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2994     * Fixed modern theme rendering, including some fixes and workarounds for
  2995       broken MS IE.
  2996     * When checking for email uniqueness, do not compare with disabled user
  2997       profiles.
  2998     * Fix sending of HTTP headers for Despam action.
  2999     * Add some margin left and right of the link icons.
  3001   Other changes:
  3002     * Made it easier for auth methods needing a user interface (like ldap or
  3003       mysql stuff). Unlike http auth, they usually need some "login form".
  3004       We made UserPreferences login form values (name, password, login, logout)
  3005       available as kw args of the auth method, so it is easy and obvious now.
  3006     * Make login and logout show at the same place. Is only shown when
  3007       show_login is True (default).
  3008     * Disabled login using &uid=12345.67.8910 method. Please use name/password.
  3009     * Made builtin moin_cookie authentication more modular: the cookie is now
  3010       touched by MoinMoin.auth.moin_cookie only, with one minor discomfort:
  3011       When creating a user, you are not automatically logged in any more.
  3012     * We now use the packager for additional help and system pages in all other
  3013       languages except English. The packages are attached to SystemPagesSetup
  3014       page and can be installed from there after getting "superuser" powers.
  3015       The "extra" package contains a collection of orphan pages not listed on
  3016       some SystemPagesIn<Language>Group page.
  3019 Version 1.5.0beta5:
  3020   Fixes:
  3021     * Fixed a minor user interface bug: it showed RenamePage and DeletePage
  3022       actions in the menu if you only had write rights and then complained
  3023       when you really tried when you had no delete rights additionally.
  3024     * We don't remove RenamePage and DeletePage from menu any more if user is
  3025       unknown. This stuff is only driven by ACLs now.
  3026     * Some fixes to Despam action.
  3027     * Fixed moin_dump (broken by some recent theme init change).
  3028     * Fixed a few tests by moving the theme init from moin_dump to RequestCLI.
  3029     * removed old_onload reference from infobox.js
  3030     * Fixed MoinMoin logo for IE.
  3031     * search: fixed whitespace handling in linkto: search terms
  3032     * Increased stability of the tests system by outputting results to sys.stdout
  3033       instead of request. Note that this changes the semantics for e.g. mod_py or
  3034       mod_fcgi.
  3035     * Fixed packaging system in the case of AddRevision that does not alter the page.
  3036     * Fixed a few bugs in the XML formatters (dom_xml, text_xml, xml_docbook).
  3037     * Fixed link icons. We now just use where xxx is the link scheme,
  3038       e.g. a.http.before. See theme's common.css.
  3039     * Hopefully fixed some issue with non-ASCII attachment filenames.
  3040     * Workaround for Opera 8.5 making silly "No addition" categories.
  3041     * Do not show GUI editor for non-wiki format pages, because we only have a
  3042       converter from html to wiki right now.
  3043     * Fix the modern CSS issues for editbar, when it shifted content far right.
  3044       Also removed the absolute height value that never was right.
  3045     * Fix mod_python adaptor bugs failing to handle Location correctly.
  3046       See:
  3048   Other changes:
  3049     * Added irc:// to the builtin supported link schemas. You can remove it
  3050       from config.url_schemas in case you have patched it in there.
  3051     * Added cfg.user_autocreate (default: False). Use True to enable user
  3052       profile autocreation, e.g. when you use http authentication, so your
  3053       externally authenticated users don't need to create their moin profile
  3054       manually. The auth method (see cfg.auth list) must check this setting
  3055       if it supports auto creation.
  3056     * Added user_autocreate support for auth.http and auth.sslclientcert.
  3057     * Added "." and "@" to allowed characters in usernames. This is needed
  3058       e.g. when using mod_pubcookie for authentication. mod_pubcookie returns
  3059       userids like "geek@ANDREW.CMU.EDU" (e.g. the Kerberos domain is part of
  3060       the id). Thanks to Brian E. Gallew for his patch, which we used for
  3061       inspiration for user autocreation changes.
  3062     * Changed auth method to return a tuple (user_obj, continue_flag), see
  3063       comments in
  3064     * auth methods now create user objects with kw args auth_method and
  3065       auth_attribs, so that moin knows later how the user was authenticated
  3066       and which user object attributes were determined by the auth method.
  3067     * Added MoinMoin/scripts/import/ to import supybot's
  3068       IRC logs into a moin wiki. We use MonthCalendar compatible page names,
  3069       so you can use the calendar for showing / navigating the logs.
  3070     * Removed packager binary from FCKeditor (fixing a Debian policy problem).
  3071     * Worked around .png transparency bugs of IE with the new logo. We ship
  3072       two logos: moinmoin.png without an alpha channel (IE compatible) and
  3073       moinmoin_alpha.png which has an alpha channel and looks better on
  3074       browsers with full .png support.
  3075     * Allow a .zip file to have a directory in it if it is the only one.
  3077 Version 1.5.0beta4:
  3078   Fixes:
  3079     * use <span class="anchor"> instead of <a> for line-xxx anchors, this
  3080       fixes some rendering problems on IE
  3081     * Fixed the ReStructured text parser when it was used with non-HTML
  3082       formatters. Increased compatiblity with new docutils code.
  3083       (Thanks to Matt Gilbert.)
  3084   Other changes:
  3085     * cfg.stylesheets = [] (default). You can use this on wiki or farm level
  3086       to emit stylesheets after the theme css and before the user prefs css.
  3087       The list entries must be ('screen', '/where/ever/is/my.css') style.
  3088     * Added sample code for auth using an external cookie made by some other
  3089       program. See contrib/auth_externalcookie/*. You need to edit it to
  3090       fit whatever cookie you want to use.
  3092 Version 1.5.0beta3:
  3093   Fixes:
  3094     * fixed editor preview throwing away page content for new pages
  3095     * require POST for userform save and create* action
  3096     * use request.normalizePagename() while collecting pagelinks
  3097     * do not offer gui editor for safari
  3098   Other changes:
  3099     * tell user if account is disabled
  3100     * added support for linking to .ico and .bmp
  3101     * attachment methods for the text_xml and xml_docbook formatters
  3102     * new favicon
  3103     * updated i18n (fixed nl, did nobody notice this?) and underlay
  3104     * changed show_interwiki default to 0
  3106 Version 1.5.0beta2:
  3107   Fixes:
  3108     * fix wrong _ in title links (MoinMoinBugs/AddSpaceWikiNameAtHead)
  3109     * fix gui editor (converter) crash on save
  3110     * MoinMoinBugs/PageHitsFails
  3111     * MoinMoinBugs/PackagePagesFailsBecauseAllowedActionsMissing
  3112     * Avoid destroying existing page content if editor is called with
  3113       template parameter for an existing page.
  3114     * fix countdown javascript for browser status line in editor
  3115     * added page title display for editor
  3116     * added header div for classic theme
  3118   Authentication and related:
  3119     * Added a wiki xmlrpc plugin to check whether auth works
  3120       correctly for xmlrpc. There is a counterpart script that
  3121       uses http auth when calling the xmlrpc plugin, so you can use it to
  3122       check http auth.
  3124 Version 1.5.0beta1:
  3125     * Requirements changed to require Python >= 2.3. We recommend that
  3126       you use the latest Python release you can get. The reason we
  3127       dropped 2.2.2 support is because no developer or tester uses this
  3128       old version any more, so incompatibilities crept in the code
  3129       without anybody noticing. Using some recent Python usually is no
  3130       real problem, see there for some hints in case you still run an
  3131       old python:
  3132       The hint also does apply to other POSIX style operating systems,
  3133       not only Linux.
  3134     * We recommend you use MoinMoin/scripts/ to clean the
  3135       wiki's cache (see comments at top of the script).
  3136       The cache will automatically be rebuilt (some operations may take
  3137       some time when first being used, e.g. linkto: search, so be patient!).
  3139   Config Changes:
  3140      * there is a file CHANGES.config with just the recently changed stuff
  3141        from
  3142      * new defaults:
  3143        * page_front_page old: u"FrontPage" new: u"HelpOnLanguages"
  3144          please just read the help page in case you see it :)
  3145        * bang_meta old: 0 new: 1
  3146        * show_section_numbers old: 1 new: 0
  3147        * some regexes that used to be [a-z]Uxxxx$ are now [a-z0-9]Uxxxx$
  3148        * navi_bar has no page_front_page as first element any more
  3149      * removed settings and code [new behaviour]:
  3150        * acl_enabled [1]
  3151        * allow_extended_names [1]
  3152        * allow_numeric_entities [1]
  3153        * backtick_meta [1]
  3154        * allow_subpages [1]
  3155      * new settings:
  3156       * cfg.mail_sendmail = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i" can be used if sending
  3157         via SMTP doesn't work on your server. Default is None and that means
  3158         using SMTP.
  3159       * language_default replaces the old default_lang setting (just renamed).
  3160       * language_ignore_browser = True can be used to let moin ignore the
  3161         user's browser settings (e.g. if you run a local-language only wiki
  3162         and your users use misconfigured or buggy browsers often). Default is
  3163         False. Don't forget to set language_default when using this.
  3165     * Wiki Editor changes / new WYSIWYG editor
  3166      * fully imported the javascript based LGPLed FCKeditor (many thanks
  3167       to Fred CK for his great work). See for details.
  3168      * config for FCKeditor is at wiki/htdocs/applets/moinfckeditor.js
  3169      * added cfg.interwiki_preferred (default = []) to set a list of wikis to
  3170        show at the top of the wiki selection list when inserting an
  3171        interwiki link (just use the same wiki name as in interwiki
  3172        map). If the last list item is None, then the preferred wikis
  3173        will not be followed by the entries of the interwiki map.
  3174     * moved save/preview/... buttons to the top so that they can be
  3175       easily reached
  3176     * reduced edit_rows default to 20 lines
  3177     * Added support for edit by doubleclick in the diff view
  3179     * Improved wiki farm support
  3180      * make user files sharable between several wikis in a farm
  3181       * allow/use interwiki subscriptions
  3182       * use interwiki links in page trail
  3183       * save bookmark per wiki name
  3184      * cfg.cookie_domain can be used to set a cookie valid for a complete
  3185        domain (default: None == only for this host). If you use '.domain.tld',
  3186        the cookie will be valid for all hosts *.domain.tld - good for host
  3187        based wiki farms.
  3188      * cfg.cookie_path can be used to set a cookie valid for a wiki farm under
  3189        some base path (default: None == only for this wiki's path). If you use
  3190        '/wikifarm',  the cookie will be valid for all wikis
  3191        server.tld/wikifarm/* - good for path based wiki farms.
  3192      * Interwiki user homepage (if you have MANY users)
  3193        Generated links for usernames are interwiki now, use cfg.user_homewiki
  3194        (default: 'Self') to specify in which wiki the user home pages are
  3195        located. Note: when pointing this to another wiki, the /MoinEditorBackup
  3196        functionality will be disabled.
  3197        @SIG@ also uses interwiki when needed.
  3199     * Authentication, ACLs and related
  3200      * Modular authentication: cfg.auth is a list of functions that return a
  3201        valid user or None, use it like this:
  3202            from MoinMoin.auth import http, moin_cookie
  3203            auth = [http, moin_cookie]
  3204      * cfg.auth_http_enabled was removed, please use cfg.auth instead.
  3205      * http auth now supports "Negotiate" scheme, too
  3206      * Added sslclientcert auth method (Apache: untested, Twisted: not
  3207        implemented, IIS: no idea). See MoinMoin/ for details.
  3208        Submit a patch if you have improvements.
  3209      * cfg.superuser is a list of unicode usernames. It is used by some
  3210        critical operations like despam action or PackageInstaller.
  3211      * removed allowed_actions, we now use actions_excluded only and it
  3212        defaults to [], that means, no action is excluded, everything is
  3213        allowed (limited by ACLs). In case of RenamePage and DeletePage,
  3214        this shouldn't be a problem as both can be reverted. In case you
  3215        did not allow attachments, you now have to use:
  3216        actions_excluded = ['AttachFile']
  3217      * special users (All, Known, Trusted) in Groups are now supported
  3218      * SecurityPolicy added
  3219        When using this security policy, a user will get admin rights on his
  3220        homepage (where pagename == username) and its sub pages. This is needed
  3221        for the MyPages action, but can also get used for manual ACL changes.
  3222        It can also be used for Project page auto admin functionality, see the
  3223        comments in the script for details.
  3224        Further it can automatically create the user's group pages when the
  3225        user saves his homepage.
  3226      * there is a UpdateGroup xmlrpc call, see MoinMoin/xmlrpc/ -
  3227        you can use this to update your *Group pages e.g. when generating them
  3228        from an external group database.
  3230     * UserPreferences changes
  3231      * Alias name: is used for display purposes, when "name" is cryptic. It is
  3232        shown e.g. in the title attribute of userid links (displayed when
  3233        moving the mouse over it).
  3234      * "Publish my email (not my wiki homepage) in author info" - use this
  3235        if you don't have a wiki homepage, but if you want to be contactable
  3236        by email. When you edit a page, your email address will be published
  3237        as mailto: link on RecentChanges, at bottom of page (last editor) and
  3238        in page info. If the wiki runs publically on the internet, be careful
  3239        using this or your email address might be collected by spammers.
  3240      * Preferred Editor: whether you want to use the text editor (as in
  3241        previous moin versions), the gui editor (new!) or both (you will get
  3242        2 edit links in that case).
  3243      * a user can add/remove the current page to/from his quicklinks with an
  3244        appropriate action now
  3245      * if cfg.user_email_unique = False, we don't require user's email
  3246        addresses to be unique
  3247      * removed show_fancy_links user preferences setting to simplify code and
  3248        caching. Displaying those icons is now done by CSS styles (see
  3249        common.css). Maybe needs fixing for non-standard themes and RTL langs.
  3251     * Markup
  3252      * added strikethrough markup: --(striked through text here)--
  3253      * @ME@ expands to just the plain username (no markup added) on save
  3255     * User homepages
  3256      * when a user accesses his own non-existing homepage (pagename ==
  3257        username), the wiki will present the MissingHomePage system page
  3258        content, explaining what a user homepage is good for and offer
  3259        one-click editing it with content loaded from HomepageTemplate
  3260      * creation of homepage subpages is assisted by the MyPages action, which
  3261        offers rw, ro page creation (and a related group) or creation of private
  3262        pages. If you are not in the user_homewiki, you will get redirected
  3263        there first.
  3265   Other changes/new features:
  3266     * Added PackageInstaller and unzipping support (see wiki page
  3267       HelpOnActions/AttachFile for further details).  PackageInstaller requires
  3268       the user to be in cfg.superuser list.
  3269      * Added an PackagePages action to simplify the package creation.
  3270     * Added location breadcrumbs - when you are on some subpage, the page
  3271       title parts link to the corresponding parent pages, the last part does
  3272       the usual reverse linking.
  3273     * added WSGI server support, thanks to Anakim Border, see:
  3274       wiki/server/ (moin as WSGI app, uses the flup WSGI server,
  3275                                see
  3276       MoinMoin/server/ (adaptor code)
  3277     * added a "Despam" action to make de-spamming a wiki easy (mass revert
  3278       bad changes done by a single author or bot). You need to be in
  3279       cfg.superuser to use it.
  3280     * Better diffs with links to anchors to the changed places
  3281     * Enhanced table support in the DocBook formatter.
  3282     * Added 'moin' daemon script, that let you run moin standalone
  3283       server as daemon and control the server with simple command line
  3284       intreface: moin start | stop | restart | kill
  3285     * Add 'restart' option to mointwisted script
  3286     * Add properties option to standalone server config. Allow
  3287       overriding any request property like in other server types.
  3288     * Add support for running behind proxy out of the box with out
  3289       manual url mapping.
  3290       See HelpOnConfiguration/IntegratingWithApache
  3291     * added a WikiBackup action, configure it similar to this:
  3292       data_dir = "/path/to/data"
  3293       backup_include = [data_dir, ] # you can add other dirs here
  3294       backup_users = ["BackupUserName", ] # only TRUSTED users!
  3295       You usually don't need to change the default backup_exclude setting.
  3296       The default backup_include list is EMPTY and so will be your
  3297       backup in case you don't configure it correctly.
  3298       If you put your data_dir there, the backup will contain private
  3299       user data like email addresses and encrypted passwords.
  3300     * Added a SubscribeUser action which allows the administrator to subscribe users to the
  3301       current page.
  3302     * Added thread count to SystemInfo macro.
  3303     * 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.
  3304     * Added a RenderAsDocbook action which redirects to the DocBook formatter.
  3305     * Added searching for wiki-local words lists under <data_dir>/dict/.
  3306       They are used additionally to the global lists in MoinMoin/dict/.
  3307     * moin_dump now also dumps attachments referenced from the page.
  3308       It doesn't dump stuff that is just attached, but not referenced!
  3309     * On RecentChanges we now force the comment to be breakable, this improves
  3310       rendering of over-long words or on narrow browser windows - especially
  3311       for themes with limited content width like rightsidebar.
  3312     * We now have the "new" icon on RecentChanges clickable, just links to the
  3313       page.
  3314     * Print view now shows "interwikiname: pagename" (for show_interwiki = 1).
  3316   International support:    
  3317     * mail_from can be now a unicode name-address 
  3318       e.g u'Jürgen wiki <>'
  3320   Theme changes:
  3321     * logo_string is now should be really only the logo (img).
  3322       If you included your wiki's name in logo_string you maybe want to remove
  3323       it now as it is shown as part of the location display now anyway (if
  3324       you set show_interwiki = 1).
  3325     * You maybe want to remove page_front_page from your navi_bar - we link to
  3326       that page now from the logo and (new, if you set show_interwiki = 1) from
  3327       the interwiki name displayed in location display, so you maybe don't need
  3328       it in navi_bar, too.
  3329     * If you have a custom theme, you should / may:
  3330      * sync modern/css/screen.css #pagelocation #pagetrail stuff to your
  3331        screen.css or pagelocation display (title()) will look strange (like a
  3332        list).
  3333      * remove "#title h1 ..." CSS (or any other CSS assuming h1 is a page
  3334        title and not just a first level heading), it is not used any more.
  3335      * we now render = heading = as <h1> (was <h2> before 1.5),
  3336        == heading == as <h2> (was <h3>), etc.
  3337      * maybe move both title() and trail() to header area, like the builtin
  3338        themes do it.
  3339      * there is a new interwiki() base theme method that optionally (if
  3340        show_interwiki = 1) shows the interwiki name of this wiki and links to
  3341        page_front_page. The css for it is #interwiki.
  3343   Developer notes:    
  3344     * Plugin API was improved. When plugin module is missing,
  3345       wikiutil.PluginMissingError is raised. When trying to import a
  3346       missing name from a plugin module, wikiutil.PluginMissingError is
  3347       raised. You must update any code that use wikiutil.importPlugin.
  3348       Errors in your plugin should raise now correct tracebacks. See
  3350     * pysupport.importName was changed, it does not check for any
  3351       errors when trying to import a name from a module. The calling
  3352       code should check for ImportError or AttributeError. Previous
  3353       code used to hide all errors behind None.
  3354     * Its easier now to customize the editbar by overriding
  3355       editbarItems() in your theme, and returning a list of items to
  3356       display in the editbar. To change a single editbar link, override
  3357       one of the xxxLink methods in your theme.
  3359   Internal Changes:
  3360     * request.formatter (html) is available for actions now
  3361     * theme API's d['page_home_page'] is gone (sorry) and replaced by
  3362       d['home_page'] which is either None or tuple (wikiname,pagename).
  3363       It is better to use the base classes function for username/prefs anyway.
  3364     * introduced cfg.hacks for internal use by development, see comment in
  3365 and file HACKS.
  3366     * added IE7 (v0.9) from Dean Edwards (see -
  3367       that should fix quite some IE bugs and annoyances (on Win32).
  3368       * for enabling IE7, use cfg.hacks = { 'ie7': True }
  3369     * reducewiki now also copies all attachments (we use that to make underlay
  3370       directory from moinmaster wiki's data_dir)
  3372   Fixes:  
  3373     * Fixed a typo in which led to a traceback instead of an
  3374       error message in case of disabled XSLT support.
  3375     * Fixed crash in twisted server if twisted.internet.ssl is not
  3376       available.
  3377     * Fixed wrong decoding of query string, enable wiki/?page_name urls
  3378       with non ascii page names.
  3379     * Fixed wrong display of non ascii attachments names in
  3380       RecentChanges and page revision history.
  3381     * Fixed a crash when trying to run standalone server on non posix os.
  3382     * Fixed highlight of misspelled words in Check Spelling action.
  3383     * Fixed case insensitivity problems on darwin (Mac OS X). See
  3384       MoinMoinBugs/MacHfsPlusCaseInsensitive
  3385     * Added RecentChanges (only the english one) to the pages getting
  3386       html_head_index headers
  3387     * text_html cache files written with this code will invalidate themselves
  3388       if they detect to be older than the wikiconfig. Note: you should remove
  3389       all old text_html cache files once after upgrading, they will then be
  3390       rebuilt automatically with the new code.
  3391     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/12_to_13_mig10_Walk
  3392     * Fixed the word_rule: a word like AAAbbAbb isn't teared into two parts
  3393       any more (was: AA<link>AbbAbb</link>)
  3394     * Fixed false positive InterWiki markup for languages like Finnish.
  3395       InterWiki links are only rendered if the left side has an appropriate
  3396       entry in the interwiki map, otherwise it is rendered as simple text.
  3397     * Fixed unicode error when uploding non-ascii file name using mod
  3398       python.
  3399     * Fixed error handling of wikirpc requests, should give more
  3400       correct errors and prevent no error output and blocking the
  3401       client in some cases.
  3402     * Fixed the "lost password" mail processing. If a user entered some email
  3403       address unknown to the system, he was not notified of this, but just got
  3404       a useless mail with no account data in it. Now the system directly tells
  3405       the user that he entered an unknown email address.
  3406     * Fixed SystemInfo, it now also lists parsers in data/plugin/parser dir.
  3407     * Fix error handling on failure, improved error display
  3408     * Fix error handling when importing plugins or importing modules
  3409       dynamically. The fix is not backward compatible with older plugins.
  3410     * Fix chart action, returns a page with error message when chart
  3411       can not be created.
  3412     * Fixed formatter usage in the ShowSmileys macro.
  3413     * Fixed updating pagelinks cache for [:page:text] or [wiki:Self:page text],
  3414       fixes display of LocalSiteMap and rendering of such links.
  3415     * Hopefully fixed urllib problems (esp. with py 2.4.2, but also before) by
  3416       using our own urllib wrapper that handles encoding/decoding to/from
  3417       unicode, see Also made a similar fix for making and parsing
  3418       query strings.
  3419     * Fixed MonthCalendar tooltips when containing special chars like quotes.
  3420     * Added html escaping for diff text for RSS feed with diff=1.
  3421     * The distance between page content beginning and the first = heading =
  3422       was much too much. Fixed.
  3424 Version 1.4:
  3426     We used that version number for an internal and early development version
  3427     for what will be called moin 2.0 at some time in the future.
  3428     There will never be a 1.4.x release.
  3431 Version 1.3.5 (2005-08-04, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-883)
  3433 Fixes:
  3434     * small CSS fix for rightsidebar theme
  3435     * applied some Debian patches (thanks to Jonas!):
  3436       * de i18n spelling fixes
  3437       * AttachFile fix, we strip CR in .draw files now
  3438       * when loading spellcheck dictionaries, we want utf-8, but we make
  3439         a 2nd try with iso-8859-1 encoding.
  3441 New Features:
  3443     * enabled using https with the Twisted server:
  3444       You need to use port 443, have PyOpenSSL (+ ssl libs it depends on)
  3445       installed and have some site key and certificate PEM files configured in
  3446       your file:
  3447       sslcert = ('/whereever/cert/sitekey.pem', '/whereever/cert/sitecert.pem')
  3450 Version 1.3.5rc1 (2005-07-31, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-865)
  3452 Fixes:
  3454     * Fixed security bug when acl of deleted page was ignored. See:
  3456     * AttachFile did not display the original filename plus there
  3457       was a confusion in input field labelling ('Rename to').
  3458     * Fixed shortcut link non-existent page detection.
  3459     * Fixed non-working bookmark function on python 2.2.x.
  3460     * Fixed wikirpc getPageInfo call on python 2.2.x.
  3461     * Fixed the failing import of plugins from the data/plugin/
  3462       directories if run in zipimport environments.
  3463     * Fixed traceback which occurred on negated searches.
  3464     * Fixed crash when trying to render error message on twisted, fast
  3465       cgi and modpy.
  3466     * Fixed error message with modpy, used to show wrong errors below
  3467       the real message.
  3468     * Fixed search and goto text fields for better compatibility with
  3469       dark themes and better control through css.
  3470     * Show an edit link if MissingPage is missing and a warning in the
  3471       server log.
  3472     * Fixed missing footer in the editor.
  3473     * Fixed indented (invalid) headings with broken links in table of
  3474       contents.
  3475     * Fixed crash when file name is too long, show standard error message.
  3476     * Save trail file in a safe way, should be enough for normal use.
  3477     * Fixed remember_last_visit user preferences option when show_trail
  3478       is not selected.
  3479     * Fixed the tests for Standalone, Twisted, FastCGI and Mod_Python.
  3480       Run with ?action=test from any page.
  3481     * Fixed rare bug when wrong search type was performed when pasting
  3482       search term in Safari.
  3483     * Fixed crash for custom formatters and dom_xml (which occurred if
  3484       smileys were in the page).
  3485     * Editor opens on double click in pages with single quote in the
  3486       name, like "Ben's Wiki".
  3487     * '/.' in page names are not replaced any more by '/(2e)'
  3488     * Fixed the long delays while saving pages using RequestCLI.
  3489     * Fixed variable expanding for users with non WikiName.
  3490     * Fixed MonthCalendar's calculation of "today" to use the user's
  3491       time zone setting.
  3492     * Fixed moin_dump script, use same configuration options as other
  3493       scripts.
  3494     * Fixed url_mappings to work in proxied setups and sent mails
  3495       again. Also fixed for image links. Thanks to JohannesBerg.
  3496     * Fixed page shown after saving a drawing (esp. when saved from a
  3497       sub page). Fixed help link for drawings.
  3498     * Fixed mig10 script to run on Python < 2.3.
  3499     * The twisted server defaulted to a socket timeout of 12 hours!
  3500       We reduced that to a more sane 10 minutes, that should still be more
  3501       than enough. This fixed the "too many open files" problem we
  3502       encountered quite often recently. Thanks to Helmut Grohne!
  3504 Other Changes:
  3506     * Added {hu} flag.
  3507     * Added cz, pt and pt-br i18n.
  3508     * We send a 404 http status code for nonexisting wiki pages now,
  3509       maybe this will repell some search engines from requesting gone
  3510       pages again and again. The wiki user still sees the MissingPage
  3511       wiki stuff, so a user usually won't notice this change.
  3512     * Return 500 error code on failure and exceptions.
  3513     * Added some more bot / leech tool user agent strings.
  3514     * Prevent page floating elements from floating out of the page over
  3515       the footer, in modern, rightsidebar and classic themes.
  3516     * Encode URLs in a safer way
  3517     * We allow usernames with ' character in them now (like Tim O'Brian).
  3518     * Added support for the new security flags in docutils 0.3.9.
  3519     * @MAILTO@ expands now to safer [[MailTo()]] macro.
  3520     * Clarified and i18ned lost password mails.
  3521     * Added 'TitleIndex' and 'SiteNavigation' (+ translation) to the
  3522       list of pages that use html_head_index (so that robots
  3523       "index,follow").  Please make sure to have either FindPage,
  3524       TitleIndex or SiteNavigation in your navi_bar or in your
  3525       page_front_page content if you want search engines to find all
  3526       your pages.
  3527     * Make it possible to send account data when being logged in (for
  3528       future reference or whatever purpose).
  3529     * Speed up when running with persistent servers, the wiki config
  3530       does only get loaded once and misc. stuff is being cached between
  3531       requests now.
  3532     * The unit tests are disabled when using multi threading, because
  3533       the wiki configuration is shared between diffrent threads.
  3534     * The main code path (using standalone server) of MoinMoin runs on
  3535       PyPy now.
  3536     * Formatters do automatically transform HTML to plain text if they are
  3537       called with raw HTML code.
  3538     * Using larger socket backlog on Standalone and FastCGI servers
  3539       should be more reliable on high load.
  3540     * We now strip leading path from attachments uploaded by IE (this is
  3541       a bug in IE, not in MoinMoin). Better use a sane browser, like Firefox.
  3542     * added "teleport" to the user agent blacklist
  3544 New Features:
  3546     * Integrated Lupy indexer for better search performance. It is disabled
  3547       by default as of 1.3.5 as it still has known issues.
  3548       See if you want to test it.
  3549     * Integrated MonthCalendar 2.1, with some new features:
  3550       * a mouseover bubble that shows first level headlines of the linked
  3551         day page
  3552       * all calendars with same pagename move when using cal navigation,
  3553         thanks to Oliver Graf
  3554       * included AnnualMonthlyCalendar patch of Jonathan Dietrich
  3555         (use [[MonthCalendar(Yearly,,,+1,,6,1)]] syntax for birthdays and
  3556         other annually repeating stuff)
  3557       Make sure you remove old MonthCalendar.* from data/plugin/macro so that
  3558       moin will use the new code in MoinMoin/macro/
  3559       Maybe also clear the text_html cache.
  3560     * Added the new XSLT parser and the DocBook parser. This should increase
  3561       the 4suite compatiblity. See HelpOnXmlPages for details.
  3562       It now should run on 4suite 1.0a4 and 1.0b1. Thanks to Henry Ho!
  3563     * Added the DocBook formatter. This will let you generate DocBook markup
  3564       by writing simple wiki pages. It needs PyXML.
  3565     * It is now possible to customize parts of the UserPreferences page in
  3566       your wikiconfig (changing defaults, disabling fields, removing fields):
  3567       * Use user_checkbox_* for the checkboxes.
  3568       * Use user_form_* for other fields.
  3569       * See MoinMoin/ for the built-in defaults.
  3570     * New standalone server classes: ThreadPoolServer using pool of
  3571       threads, ThreadingServer with thread limit and ForkingServer.
  3572     * New standalone server configuration options: serverClass,
  3573       threadLimit, requestQueueSize.
  3574     * Use "PythonOption Location" in mod_python setup to solve script_name
  3575       problems.
  3577 Developer notes:
  3579     * Theme can now override maxPagenameLength() method to control page
  3580       name shortening.
  3581     * A search Match now provides access to the full re match via
  3582       the re_match attribute (use to access groups of the match)
  3583     * Underlay is not managed by arch any more. The tree contains an
  3584       underlay tarball, and you should untar after you update from main.
  3585     * "make update-underlay" will untar underlay
  3586     * "make merge" will star-merge main into your tree
  3587     * "make test" will now create and run in a fresh testwiki instace
  3588     * "make clean" options added
  3589     * _tests module does not have a global request any more. To refer to
  3590       the current request in a test, use self.request.
  3591     * _tests.TestConfig class require a request in the constructor.
  3592     * "python tests/ test_module" will run only test_module
  3593     * request.cfg stays between requests (for persistent servers).
  3596 Version 1.3.4 (2005-03-13, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-666)
  3598 Fixes:
  3600     * Fixed ACL check in LikePages macro that caused links to unreadable 
  3601       pages to show.
  3602     * Fixed ACL check in newpage action.
  3603     * Fixed a security problem when admin policy defined in a custom
  3604       SecurityPolicy class was ignored.
  3605     * Fixed ACL check in action=show so that a user who may not read a page
  3606       also can't find out WHEN the protected page was updated.
  3607     * Workaround on Windows 95, 98, ME in order to clear the dircache.
  3608       This fixes some bugs related to an outdated page list and newly created
  3609       pages that did not appear immediately.
  3610     * Fixed decoding issues of page names on Windows, finally.
  3612     * Fixed traceback on IIS.
  3614     * Fixed wikirpc for standalone server.
  3615     * Other fixes (encoding and str/unicode data type related) to wikirpc
  3616       server, fixing some non-ascii issues hopefully.
  3617     * Fixed broken query strings for Standalone installations.
  3618     * Fixed backlinks - the result did not always show all links, often it 
  3619       showed too many irrelevant matches (MoinMoinBugs/BacklinksAreBroken).
  3620     * Fixed the acceptance of the show_hosts setting. Now you should be able
  3621       to hide any IP or host name from being published by MoinMoin by enabling
  3622       this option.
  3623     * Fixed wrong line endings on email messages.
  3624     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/StandaloneUnquotesTooMuch.
  3625     * Fixed crash when trail file is missing.
  3626     * Fixed a traceback when searching for single ( or ).
  3627     * Added mig10 script to fix crashes with uncoverted edit-locks and file
  3628       attachments. Just use it as you did with mig1..mig9 before.
  3629     * Added mig11 script to add files to data/plugin (and below).
  3630     * added some fixes for the xslt parser (thanks to fanbanlo), it might be
  3631       still broken, but someone with deeper knowledge about xslt should fix it.
  3632     * Replaced image link with W3C's "html 4.01 compliance" icon by a simple
  3633       text link to avoid https: or config trouble.
  3634     * Catch OverflowError backtrace when illegal date strings (e.g. <1970 or
  3635       >2038) are fed to moinmoin's time routines. It will just output current
  3636       date / time in those cases.
  3637     * UserPreferences now also set a date_fmt preference and Date macro
  3638       honours it. You may have to reset your UserPreferences value for that.
  3639     * Fixed free parent and subpage links in interwiki notation.
  3641     * Fixed a traceback for invalid ReST markup.
  3642     * Fixed UnicodeError in SystemAdmin's Attachment Browser.
  3644 Other Changes:
  3646     * Optimized the IRC parser.
  3647     * Support for zipimport of the MoinMoin package. This allows you to use
  3648       py2exe and similar programs.
  3649     * Show the editor's name in the mail subject.
  3650     * Added the pragmas description and keywords. They will add <meta> headers
  3651       if used.
  3652     * Added MoinMoin/scripts/xmlrpc-tools/ example script, useful
  3653       as a starting point for importing data using wiki xmlrpc.
  3654     * Optimised display on Opera browser.
  3656 New features:
  3658     * The search modifier "linkto:" was introduced. You can use it to search
  3659       for links.
  3660     * The NewPage macro now can take a PageTemplate parameter, see HelpOnMacros.
  3661     * New config settings (so you don't need to edit any more):
  3662       xmlrpc_putpage_enabled = 0 (if 1, enables writing to arbitrary page names)
  3663       xmlrpc_putpage_trusted_only = 1 (if 0, doesn't require users to be
  3664        authenticated by http auth - DANGEROUS, DO NOT SET TO 0!!!)
  3665     * Added support for Digest and NTLM authentication with CGI (e.g. if you
  3666       use those Apache modules)
  3667     * The datetime string accepted by Date and DateTime macros was extended to
  3668       accept a timezone specification, so now +/-HHMM is also valid, e.g.:
  3669       2005-03-06T15:15:57Z (UTC, same as +0000)
  3670       2005-03-06T15:15:57+0000 (UTC)
  3671       2005-03-06T16:15:57+0100 (same time given as local time for time zone
  3672                                 with offset +0100, that is CET, e.g. Germany)
  3673       2005-03-06T10:15:57-0500 (same time given as local time for time zone
  3674                                 with offset -0500, EST, US Eastern Std. Time)
  3675       The values given as macro argument will be transformed to UTC internally
  3676       and then adapted again according to viewing user's UserPreferences, so
  3677       the user will see the same moment in time but shown in his local time
  3678       zone's time (at least if he set his UserPreferences correctly and didn't
  3679       forget changing them twice a year for DST and non-DST).
  3680     * Readded (now optional) editlink footer to Include macro. Add
  3681       ',editlink' to call to enable this.
  3682     * star "smileys" e.g. {*}{*}{*}{o}{o}
  3685 Version 1.3.3 (2005-01-24, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-595)
  3687 Fixes:
  3689     * fixed ACL security problem in search
  3690     * fix for IIS with CGI allowing page names that contain chars
  3691       that are not in the system code page
  3692     * fixed MoinEditorBackup revisions to start with 1 now
  3693     * improved page locking ('current' file)
  3694     * Unittests (normally shown at end of action=test output) are currently
  3695       disabled for everything except CGI, because they only work reliably with
  3696       CGI, giving wrong results for other request methods.
  3699 Version 1.3.2 (2005-01-23, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-587)
  3701 Fixes:
  3703     * ACL bugfix for deleted pages with ACL protection.
  3704     * ACL bugfix for "Default" acl.
  3705     * Fixed updating of groups and dicts
  3706     * Python 2.2.x related fixes (worked on 2.3+)
  3707       * Fixed traceback in RecentChanges.
  3708       * Fixed traceback with links browser.
  3709     * Fixed 0 revision display in 'Show changes'.
  3710     * Fixed traceback in Antispam which occurred when it could not connect
  3711       to MoinMaster. Log the errors to stderr or error.log.
  3712     * Fixed bug in Page init (no date, use rev). Fixes problem with
  3713       #deprecated PI.
  3714     * Fixed empty lists in empty search results.
  3715     * Cosmetic fix for modern theme (when viewed with Internet Explorer).
  3716     * Fixed migration 9 script, do not drop newline, do not drop error.log, 
  3717       note about missing error.log.
  3718     * Fixed script, keep ending newline on revisions.
  3719     * Show headings and macro content in correct direction when mixing content 
  3720       in several directions in the same page and using caching.
  3721     * Fixed bug in standalone re farmconfig.
  3722     * Fixed DOS condition in antispam code.
  3723     * Use smaller margin in print mode to get better results with 
  3724       Mozilla/Firefox.
  3725     * Fixed some user input escaping issues.
  3726     * Fixed a problem when one wiki plugin override other wikis plugins in 
  3727       same farm.
  3728     * Fixed some broken tests.
  3729     * Fixed recursive include in pstats.
  3730     * Fixed bug in standalone - HTTP result code was 200 even when the access
  3731       was forbidden.
  3732     * Fixed traceback when trying to login with non-ascii password.
  3733     * Fixed traceback when xml is not available, reported on Python 2.2.?
  3734     * Fixed slideshow to show slides in sorted order again.
  3735     * Fixed serving multiple wikis on same IP/different ports with twisted and
  3736       farmconfig.
  3737     * It is possible to run with data_underlay_dir = None for special
  3738       application, but be aware that the wiki won't be usable unless you have
  3739       at least some of the system pages from underlay/ available.
  3740     * Files with Unicode characters in their filename are possible now.
  3741     * Bugfix for broken [:page#anchor:text] links.
  3742     * Workaround an instability of the gdchart module leading to
  3743       stalled servers etc.
  3744     * Fixed some event-log decoding issues that affect charts rendering.
  3746 Other changes:
  3748     * Major speed improvement over 1.3.1. Many times faster title search,
  3749       creating new page, opening page editor and any operation that list pages.
  3750       See
  3751     * Improved README.migration.
  3752     * Cleaner design for login/register interface, login is always the default
  3753       button when the user click Enter.
  3754     * If there are problems found in the configuration, log the error
  3755       and display helpful error messages in the browser.
  3756     * More forgiving unicode configuration policy, you must use the u'string' 
  3757       format only for unicode values.
  3758     * Added profiling to CGI.
  3759     * The content of is similar to now.
  3760     * Unexpected errors while loading cache files are logged.
  3761     * i18n for icon ALT tags.
  3762     * Include request initialization code in the profile in standalone server.
  3763     * When creating new theme, style sheets are inherited correctly, no need
  3764       to override style sheets just to get them working.
  3765     * Many times faster plugin system. Typical pages are about 35% faster, 
  3766       pages with many plugins can be many times faster. 
  3767     * Spiders are allowed to fetch attachments.
  3768     * Old user files containing password hash encoded in pre 1.3 charset
  3769       are auto repaired on first login.
  3770     * data_dir defaults to './data', underlay_data_dir to './underlay' now.
  3771       It is a good idea to replace those by absolute pathes in
  3772     * Renamed "Refresh" to "Delete Cache" - it was misused by users. The action 
  3773       was also moved into the action menu in the modern and rightsidebar themes.
  3774     * Added a workaround for TableOfContents missing some links by making it
  3775       uncacheable via a "time" dependency.
  3776     * Removed interwiki icon and title attribute for wiki:Self:... links.
  3777     * Unittests (normally shown at end of action=test output) are currently
  3778       disabled because they worked unreliably, giving wrong results sometimes.
  3780 New features:
  3782     * Create new pages easily using configurable interface and page templates 
  3783       with the new NewPage macro.
  3784     * ReStructuredText (rst) support is built-in now. See HelpOnParsers.
  3785     * New experimental feature in - each interface may 
  3786       specify a port: ''. Without a port, the port option
  3787       is used.
  3789 API changes:
  3791     * For a complete list of changes, see MoinMoin:ApiChanges.
  3792     * wikiutil.importPlugin's first argument is now a wiki config instance 
  3793       (request.cfg) and there is no path keyword.
  3794     * Wiki plugins always override MoinMoin plugins. wikiutil.importPlugin
  3795       implements this override.
  3796     * util.pysupport.importName does not accept path - you should call 
  3797       it with correct module name, e.g '' for 
  3798       wiki plugins, or ''. 
  3799     * wikiutil.extensionPlugin was renamed to wikiPlugins and it gets config 
  3800       instance instead of path.
  3801     * New function wikiutil.importWikiPlugin used to import wiki plugins 
  3802       using a cache in a thread safe way.
  3803     * New config option config.use_threads is used to activate thread 
  3804       safe code.
  3805     * New keyword arguments for getPageList, enable 10X faster operation
  3806       for common cases by controlling page filtering.
  3807     * New up to 100X times faster getPageCount
  3810 Version 1.3.1 (2004-12-13, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-434)
  3812 Fixes:
  3814     * Fixed "Error Cyclic usage" crash when user had Italian (it), Korean
  3815       (ko), Serbian (sr) or Vietnamese (vi) as user interface language.
  3816     * Fall back to en (instead of crashing) when user uses a language moin
  3817       does not support / does not support any more (like pt,sv,fi,sr).
  3818     * In 1.3.0, people accidentally put iso-8859-1 chars into wiki configs,
  3819       but those where expected to be pure utf-8 and thus it crashed.
  3820       Fixed by using unicode strings (varname = u'whatever'), a matching
  3821       encoding setting (see top of script comment) and, when decoding strings,
  3822       using decode to ASCII with replace mode (this replaces non-ASCII chars,
  3823       but at least it won't crash - and you get a warning to better use
  3824       Unicode strings).
  3825     * Fixed long time broken table formatting. ||<style="see css spec" a||b||
  3826       Now even generates valid HTML! The old markup for align, valign, width,
  3827       bgcolor still works, but synthesizes style attribute data.
  3828     * SystemAdmin macro shows attachments of ALL pages now.
  3829     * Users without write acl rights will be able to see attachments again and
  3830       also have AttachFile action in menu.
  3831     * Fixed wrong match count in search results, find all matches in page 
  3832       titles, show all matches in contents in some rare cases.
  3833     * Run about 200% faster with long running processes (standalone, Twisted), 
  3834       about 20% faster with cgi, by better internal data handling in wikidicts.
  3835     * On SF, the dict files use utf-8 encoding now. We included them also in
  3836       distribution, see contrib/dict/.
  3837     * Fixed permissions to shared template stuff.
  3838     * Speeded up search, fixed wrong match counts.
  3839     * Speeded up internal data handling (wikidicts).
  3840     * Fixed rare unicode error after deleting a page (reported only on SuSE
  3841       Linux 9.0 / Python 2.3.0).
  3842     * Fixed file permissions of files in the data dir.  
  3843     * Fixed some cosmetic problems in migration scripts and use sys.path.insert
  3844       to get latest moin code when executing them.
  3846 Other Changes:
  3848     * Improved docs, system and help pages.
  3849     * Updated translation files.
  3851 Known Bugs:
  3853     * Internet Explorer renders our HTML/CSS in a suboptimal way.
  3854       (MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/InternetExplorer)
  3855       Workaround: use a non-broken browser like FireFox / Mozilla.
  3856       Fixed in MoinMoin 1.3.2.
  3857     * Passwords using non-ascii do not work.
  3858       (MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/NonAsciiPasswordsBroken)
  3859     * The TOC macro is broken partly.

  3865 Version 1.3.0 (2004-12-06, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-400)
  3867     As you see from the length of the 1.3 changes below, 1.3 is a major(!)
  3868     upgrade. We could have also named it "2.0", but we decided against.
  3869     So take the time for reading the informations thoroughly and do the
  3870     migration exactly as we tell you - this is no 5 minutes upgrade!
  3872     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3873     !!! We heavily changed configuration, data encoding, dir layout:    !!!
  3874     !!!  * the default encoding changed to utf-8.                       !!!
  3875     !!!  * also, we changed the escaping for special chars to %XX%YY in !!!
  3876     !!!    URL and (xxyy) in file system.                               !!!
  3877     !!!  * layout of data dir changed completely                        !!!
  3878     !!! If you upgrade an existing wiki, you must run the migration     !!!
  3879     !!! scripts or you will get data corruption or other problems.      !!!
  3880     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3882     HINT: Upgrading your wiki - critical information
  3884       If you are NOT starting from scratch, you MUST convert your existing
  3885       data - see README.migration for details.
  3887       If you use ##language: xx comments on your OWN pages, you should also run
  3888       repair_language script. Not needed for help/system pages as we already
  3889       have done that for you.
  3891       MoinMoin uses Unicode internally now (UCS-2 with 16 bits or UCS-4 with
  3892       32 bits, depending on your Python installation). The encoding used
  3893       for page files and html output is set by config.charset.
  3895       Moin 1.3 uses utf-8 encoding only, there is NO SUPPORT for using a
  3896       charset different from utf-8 with 1.3. If you try, you are on your own.
  3898     Directory layout
  3900       Directory layout was heavily changed. Each page now is a directory,
  3901       containing page revisions, attachments, cache files and edit-log.
  3903       You can delete a page or move a page from one wiki to another
  3904       easily. Look at the wiki/data directory to see.
  3906       Example:
  3907         old: data/text/FrontPage
  3908         new: data/pages/FrontPage/revisions/00000042
  3909              data/pages/FrontPage/current (contains: 00000042)
  3910         old: data/backup/FrontPage.xxxxxxxx
  3911         new: data/pages/FrontPage/revisions/00000023
  3913       For cleaning up cache files, use MoinMoin/scripts/ 
  3914       (see comments in script).
  3916    Python / Libs
  3918       * For using RSS, you need to have PyXML installed:
  3919         Python 2.4*   -> PyXML 0.8.4 (cvs version)
  3920         Python 2.3.x  -> PyXML 0.8.3
  3921         Python 2.2.2+ -> ???
  3922         This will also make "Live Bookmarks" of Mozilla Firefox working.
  3923         New: if you don't have PyXML installed, the RSS icon on RecentChanges
  3924         will not be displayed any more. Python with no PyXML installed
  3925         generates invalid RSS XML.
  3927    Page names handling
  3929       * Handling of special characters in file names changed from _xx format
  3930         to (xx...) format.
  3931       * In URLs, moin now uses %xx%yy quoting, (because this is supported by 
  3932         browsers), and sub pages use "/" instead of the ugly "_2f".
  3933       * Underscore character "_" is used now as a space character " " both 
  3934         in file names and URLs. " " and "_" will be handled equivalent at most
  3935         places in the future (represented as "_", rendered as " ").
  3936       * To prevent wiki abuse and user typing errors, page names are normalized 
  3937         in URLs, query strings, the "go" box and when renaming pages. This 
  3938         include leading, trailing and multiple slashes and white space. Certain 
  3939         invisible unicode characters are removed from page names.
  3940       * Group page names are restricted even more, any non unicode alpha-numeric
  3941         character is removed. This is done to enable changing acl syntax in 
  3942         the future. The restriction might be loosen on future versions.
  3943       * You can edit config.page_invalid_chars_regex to control which characters
  3944         are allowed in page names (Changing it is not supported).
  3945       * When you enter page name, it is normalized and you are redirected to
  3946         the normalized page, or if nothing left (e.g '/////'), to FrontPage.
  3947       * When renaming a page to a name that can be normalized to an empty string,
  3948         the new page name will be "EmptyName" and the user will not get an
  3949         error message.
  3951    Underlay directory
  3953      * Pages (especially system and help pages) are now located in an underlay
  3954        directory (data_underlay_dir). You will see the pages there if they are
  3955        NOT covered (overlayed) by a page in the normal pages directory
  3956        (as set using data_dir).
  3957        MAKE SURE THAT data_underlay_dir IS CORRECT OR YOU WILL SEE MANY EMPTY
  3958        PAGES ONLY IN A NEW WIKI.
  3959      * If you edit a page that is shown from underlay directory, it will be
  3960        copied to the normal page directory on save (copy-on-write).
  3961      * You can use one copy of the underlay directory shared by many
  3962        wiki instances. Each wiki will then have only your local, self-made
  3963        wiki pages in its data directory, and only system and help pages in the
  3964        single, shared underlay directory - this simplifies upgrades a lot.
  3965      * It is recommended to keep your underlay system and help pages immutable
  3966        using acl, so you can upgrade your wiki easily. The default help and
  3967        system pages already have those ACLs (using MoinPagesEditorGroup).
  3968      * Do not forget to remove your old help and system pages after migrating
  3969        your wiki. We don't provide a script for that as that would be
  3970        dangerous for edited pages. Just use some file manager (e.g. mc) to
  3971        clean the data/pages/ directory. As soon as you have removed the
  3972        system pages there, you will see the new pages in the underlay dir.
  3973        See the EditedSystemPages page for a list of pages that exist in both
  3974        data and underlay directory (use this page as admin!).
  3976        When updating from 1.2 or lower to 1.3 or higher, you will want to
  3977        clean out the copies of the system pages in your {{{wiki/data}}}
  3978        directory. All of these pages will now reside in the underlay
  3979        directory. If you have system pages from 1.2 or lower in your
  3980        wiki/data/ directory, they will overshadow the more up-to-date
  3981        documentation. This can be done using the following manual procedure:
  3982        1. You have just converted from 1.2 or lower to post-1.3.
  3983        2. Go to your wiki's EditedSystemPages.
  3984        3. Find all the pages that are MoinMoin system or help pages. You will
  3985           know if it is one of those pages because it is not your page.
  3986        4. Check if it is okay to delete by either:
  3987           1. Using the this page "info" link and check the Revision History to
  3988              see if it is greater than 1. If so, there are modifications, so do
  3989              not delete the page and evaluate the modifications to see if they
  3990              are necessary.
  3991           2. Using your file browser (Windows Explorer, etc) to go to your
  3992              wiki/data/<<systemPage>>/revisions/ directory and to see if there
  3993              are no modifications. If there are, do not delete the page and
  3994              evaluate the modifications to see if they are necessary.
  3995        5. Delete that wiki/data/<<systemPage>> using your file browser.
  3997     Multiple languages
  3999       * New file name quoting method allow 50% longer page names in languages
  4000         that use more than one byte per character, like Hebrew, Korean etc.
  4001       * Configuration file uses 'utf-8' encoding now. Certain values that are
  4002         marked with [Unicode] can use any character in your language. Examples 
  4003         are page names in navi_bar, page types regular expressions and site name.
  4004       * For configuration examples adopted to your language, check ConfigMarket 
  4005         in the MoinMoin wiki.
  4006       * The system and help pages that come with moin are now in utf-8.
  4007       * MissingPage system page localized, should display in your language.
  4008       * We did many i18n (translation) updates.
  4009       * CSS file use utf-8 encoding. User css is also expected to be utf-8.
  4010         This is relevant only if you use non-ASCII values in the CSS file.
  4011       * config.upperletters and config.lowerletters were removed.
  4012         We now use a pre-made ucs-2 spanning set and you usually don't have to
  4013         change it. See MoinMoin/util/ if you're interested.
  4014       * ACL works with any user name or group name in any language, even names 
  4015         with spaces.
  4016       * Now you can use any charset in config.charset. Note: only utf-8 is 
  4017         a supported configuration!
  4018       * Improved url handling, now creating pages directly from the browser 
  4019         url box with non-ascii names works in most cases, even when 
  4020         config.charset is not utf-8.
  4021       * When using non-utf-8 config.charset, characters in URLs that does
  4022         fit in the charsets are replaced with "?" (instead of crashing).
  4023       * All themes and most macros and actions are Right to Left friendly.
  4024         Full RTL support planned for 1.3 release.
  4025       * If page language is specified with #language processing instruction
  4026         the page is displayed in the correct direction. Pages without
  4027         language are displayed using the wiki default_lang.
  4029     Multiple configurations
  4031       * You can run multiple wikis from the same wiki directory or server. 
  4032         For example, you can run one Twisted server that serve multiple wikis, 
  4033         instead of running multiple servers. Samples of the new configuration
  4034         are supplied in wiki/config/*.
  4035       * You can't just use your old file. It is now called
  4036 and the config variables now have to be in a class
  4037         "Config" and that class must inherit from
  4038         MoinMoin.multiconfig.DefaultConfig - see the provided
  4039         sample for details.
  4040         This is very useful, e.g. you could derive a GermanConfig from
  4041         DefaultConfig. After that, you can derive configs for wikiA and wikiB
  4042         from that GermanConfig.
  4043       * contains a mapping attribute called "wikis" with pairs of
  4044         wikiconfig module name and regular expression. The regular expression
  4045         is matched against the URL of the request and the first matching entry
  4046         determines the config module to be imported by MoinMoin.
  4047       * If you use's "wikis" mapping, then any wiki has a private
  4048         config module, named after the wiki - e.g. wiki named moinmoin would
  4049         use
  4050       * If you only have a single wiki, you do not need just make 
  4051         a and it will be used no matter what URL is requested. 
  4052       * There is one common global "config" that holds sitewide settings (like
  4053         umask or charset) - you do not need to change settings there.
  4054         This file is located in the MoinMoin code: MoinMoin/
  4056     General configuration
  4058       * SecurityPolicy now uses "write" instead of "edit" (so it is may.write
  4059         now). This is to get it in sync with ACLs.
  4060       * SecurityPolicy now automatically can use everything in acl_rights_valid.
  4061       * There is a new config option "config_check_enabled". It will warn about
  4062         any unknown variable name (probably typo) to stderr or error.log. 
  4063         If something doesn't work at all and changing the config does no 
  4064         difference, switch it on and look at the error message. 
  4065       * The sample config file comes with config_check_enabled = 1. If you 
  4066         introduce additional variables yourself, you definitely want to switch 
  4067         that check off or it will fill your log.
  4068       * If you define "page_front_page" variable, this name will show in the 
  4069         navigation bar now, instead of the default "FrontPage".
  4071     New search engine
  4073      * Full text and title search do support multiple search terms now - 
  4074        see HelpOnSearching for details.
  4075      * Regular expressions are still supported but have to be turned on per
  4076        search term. Search terms in macros using regular expressions will have
  4077        to be fixed.
  4078      * The URL interface of the search engine has also changed. Links that 
  4079        point directly to search actions may be broken.
  4081     User names
  4083       * User names can not use group names, even if ACLs are not enabled.
  4084         This will prevent error later, if you start to use acl in the future
  4085         (acl is going to be mandatory in 1.5).
  4086       * User names are not restricted any more to only CamelCase. 
  4087       * To prevent imposing as other users, leading, trailing and multiple 
  4088         whitespace in user names is not allowed. Only Unicode alpha numeric 
  4089         characters are allowed, with optional one space character between 
  4090         words.
  4091       * When a user name with a group name or "bad" name is trying to 
  4092         access the wiki, he is redirected to the UserPreferences page and 
  4093         asked to create a new account.
  4094       * When trying to login or create a new account with a bad name, 
  4095         correct error message is displayed in all cases.   
  4097     CGI
  4099       * You can not use your old moin.cgi file, as we removed 
  4100         (was deprecated since 1.2). Copy the new file from the server dir.     
  4102     Moin servers - Twisted and standalone
  4104       * Configuration self checking on startup. Will raise an error in case
  4105         of bad configuration or non-accessible directories.
  4106       * Both use shorter and identical configuration options.
  4107       * Server scripts contain detailed comments and examples.
  4108       * Configuration defaults changed to fit most users.
  4109       * There is memory profiler option for debugging, switched off by default.
  4110       * If you perform a standard install, server scripts should run out
  4111         of the box or with minimal change.
  4113     Twisted server
  4115       * All code moved into the new server package, the server script
  4116         contains only configuration options.
  4117       * Listen to more than one interface with "interfaces" list.
  4118       * Code updated to new Twisted API.
  4119       * Use mointwisted script to start and stop the server, using 
  4120         "mointwisted start" and "mointwisted stop".
  4121       * The Twisted server runs as daemon by default.
  4122       * All moin Twisted files are called now mointwisted instead of 
  4123         moin_twisted.
  4124       * Fixed getting username from Twisted request (http auth)
  4126     Standalone server
  4128       * Configuration moved from to
  4129       * If run as root, you can set both user and group for the server.
  4130       * Can use logfile instead of logging to stderr.
  4131       * Fixed missing unquoting of query string (caused problems in rare cases).
  4133     mod_python server
  4135      * moin_modpy server files renamed to moinmodpy.
  4137     Wiki Markup
  4139      * '''strong''', ''em'' and __underline__ have now paragraph scope. You can
  4140        set these attributes on words level. For multiple paragraphs, wrap each 
  4141        with needed markup.
  4142      * If you leave unclosed ''', '' and __  markup, its is closed when the 
  4143        paragraph ends.
  4145     User interface
  4147      * Due to many changes in CSS files, the wiki may look "broken" until
  4148        your reload once or twice, or empty your browser cache.
  4149      * The "Send mail notification" checkbox is replaced by "Trivial change"
  4150        checkbox. The default behavior did not change - regular edit is not
  4151        a trivial change, and mail will be sent to subscribes. If you check
  4152        trivial change, mail will be sent only to users who selected to 
  4153        get trivial changes in their user preferences.
  4154      * New theme "modern" has been added, and used as default theme. 
  4155      * classic and rightsidebar improved.
  4156      * viewonly theme removed, as any theme can be use now as viewonly
  4157        by using #acl All:read in the wikiconfig.
  4158      * All themes use new navibar, displaying both wiki links, user links
  4159        and the current page.
  4160      * navibar and pagetrail use now shortened page names, so very long
  4161        names does not break the interface visually.
  4162      * All themes have improved search interface at the top of the window.
  4163      * Only avaiable actions are displayed, so most situations when a user
  4164        try to do something he can't do are prevented.
  4165      * When creating a new page, no action is available until the page 
  4166        is created. You can't attach files to non-existing page any more.
  4167      * Non registered users get a "login" link. Registered uses get
  4168        "username" link to their home page, and "user preferences" link.
  4169      * Messages more clear using bold type, designed by css.
  4170      * Few useless messages removed (but there are many more)
  4171      * Default wiki logo uses the wiki name instead of the MoinMoin troll 
  4172        logo.
  4174     Other fixes and changes
  4176      * Most generated html code is valid "html 4 strict". There are still
  4177        some problems that still have to be fixed, mainly macros, table
  4178        attributes, and inline markup crossing (<a><b></a></b>).
  4179      * WantedPages can include and exclude system pages, which makes it 
  4180        much more useful.
  4181      * Fixed a bug in TitleIndex where not all system pages are excluded.    
  4182      * RenamePage action now renames everything, including backups, page
  4183        history, attachments. It does not change toplevel editlog, though.
  4184        After you rename a page, you are redirected to the new page.
  4185      * Syntax colorization supports more languages (Java, C++, Pascal)
  4186      * Inline: display of attachments was extended. A Parser now knows which
  4187        extensions it can handle.
  4188      * TableOfContents and Include macros now cooperate a bit better. There
  4189        are still problems with multiple Includes of the same page.
  4190      * Excluded actions at bottom of page are not displayed any more.   
  4191      * Editor: removed the columns size setting, just using 100% of browser
  4192        window width (it didn't work because of that anyway). Also removed that
  4193        "reduce editor size" link at top of editor as you would lose your
  4194        changes when using it.
  4195      * Removed the option to choose text smileys instead of images, this made
  4196        more trouble than it was worth. The text version is still given in ALT
  4197        attribute.
  4198      * Moved stuff from contribution/ to MacroMarket page on MoinMoin wiki
  4199      * Some nasty people try to use a running moin as a proxy (at least they
  4200        did on, maybe due to the magic port
  4201        number). We changed the code to check for that and just return 403
  4202        in that case. Moin can not be used as a proxy anyway.
  4203      * moin.cgi?test was removed in favor of a new buildin test
  4204        action. It works for all deployments, just use ?action=test.
  4205      * Sending mail does use tls if server supports it.
  4207     3rd party developer notes
  4209      * Themes should be now sub class of MoinMoin.theme.ThemeBase. Sub
  4210        classes will get automatically all new improved user interface
  4211        elements for free.
  4212      * Theme authors should update their theme for 1.3. Some keys removed
  4213        from them dict. See ThemeBase class in MoinMoin/theme/ 
  4214      * Actions writers should call request.setContentLangauge with the 
  4215        correct language used by the action. This enable themes and other
  4216        code to use correct direction.
  4217      * The Formatter interface was changed. Formatters and parsers using 
  4218        the formatter interface have to be adjusted.
  4219      * started deprecation of Processors: they are still recognized, but
  4220        implementors should start to rewrite their Processors as Parsers.
  4221        A processor with the same name as a parser in a pre #! section is
  4222        currently preferred. This will change in the next release.
  4224     Deprecation notes
  4226      * Processors are deprecated, see section above.
  4228      * Using the cookie (or the login url with ID) only and not setting (or
  4229        setting and not remembering) your email/password in UserPreferences
  4230        is DEPRECATED. Those quite unsecure methods will likely be dropped
  4231        in next moin version.
  4233      * Operating with acl_enabled = 0 is also DEPRECATED. Due to some other
  4234        improvements planned, we will have to operate with ACLs enabled ONLY
  4235        in a future moin version, so this setting will likely be dropped.
  4236        So clean up your user accounts (see and switch ACLs
  4237        on NOW.
  4238        There are no drawbacks, so you will like it. Having ACLs enabled
  4239        doesn't mean you really have to USE them on wiki pages...
  4241      * allow_extended_names = 0 is deprecated (default was/is 1).
  4242        Future versions will be able to use extended names (aka free links) in
  4243        any case and the config setting will be removed.
  4245      * allow_subpages = 0 is deprecated (default was/is 1).
  4246        Future versions will be able to use subpages in any case and the config
  4247        setting will be removed.
  4249      * attachments = {...} - we would like to remove that setting because of
  4250        several reasons:
  4251        * when not being extremely careful, this can easily lead to security
  4252          problems (like when uploading a .php exploit and then executing it
  4253          by accessing it directly via web server)
  4254        * makes code more complicated - code that we want to change completely
  4255          in next version
  4256        If you need that feature, speak up now and tell us your reasons WHY you
  4257        need it.
  4260 Version 1.2.4 (2004-10-23, Revision 1.187)
  4262 This will probably be the last 1.2.x release as we are soon doing release
  4263 candidates for 1.3 release (with big internal changes) and are expecting
  4264 release 1.3 in december 2004.
  4266 Fixes:
  4267     * fixed "None" pagename bug in fullsearch/titlesearch
  4268     * fixed projection CSS usage
  4269     * the compiled page is removed when a page is deleted, so no ghost page
  4270       appears after deletion
  4271     * fixed AbandonedPages day-break problem
  4272     * fixed [[GetVal(WikiDict,key)]]
  4273     * the msg box is now outside content div on PageEditor, too
  4274     * privacy fix for email notifications: you don't see other email addresses
  4275       in To: any more. mail_from is now also used for To: header field, but
  4276       we don't really send email to that address.
  4277     * privacy fix for /MoinEditorBackup pages that were made on previews of
  4278       pages that were not saved in the end
  4279     * fix double content div on PageEditor preview
  4281 Other changes:
  4282     * workaround for broken Microsoft Internet Explorer, the page editor now
  4283       stops expanding to the right (e.g. with rightsidebar theme).
  4284       Nevertheless it is a very good idea to use a non-broken and more secure
  4285       browser like Mozilla, Firefox or Opera!
  4287     * from import SecurityPolicy in your
  4288 will protect your wiki from at least the known spammers.
  4289       See MoinMoin:AntiSpamGlobalSolution for details.
  4291     * xmlrpc plugin for usage logging, currently used for antispam accesses
  4293     * (re-)added configurable meta tags:
  4294         * html_head_queries = '''<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">\n'''
  4295         * html_head_posts   = '''<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">\n'''
  4296         * html_head_index   = '''<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">\n'''
  4297         * html_head_normal  = '''<meta name="robots" content="index,nofollow">\n'''
  4299     * i18n updates/fixes
  4301     * New UserPreferences switch:
  4302       you may subscribe to trivial changes (when you want to be notified about ALL
  4303       changes to pages, even if the author deselected to send notifications).
  4305     * New AttachList and AttachInfo macros - thanks to Nigel Metheringham and
  4306       Jacob Cohen.
  4308 Version 1.2.3 (2004-07-21, Revision 1.186)
  4310 Fixes:
  4311     * fixed NameError "UnpicklingError" in
  4312     * fixed version number in moin.spec
  4313     * reverts done by bots or leechers
  4314       There was a bad, old bug that triggered if you did not use ACLs. In that
  4315       case, moin used some simple (but wrong and incomplete) function to
  4316       determine what a user (or bot) may do or may not do. The function is now
  4317       fixed to allow only read and write to anon users, and only delete and
  4318       revert to known users additionally - and disallow everything else.
  4319     * avoid creation of unneccessary pages/* directories
  4320     * removed double content divs in general info and history info pages
  4321     * fixed wiki xmlrpc getPageHTML
  4322     * fixed rightsidebar logout URL, also fixed top banner to link to FrontPage
  4323     * use config.page_front_page and .page_title_index for robots meta tag
  4324       (whether it uses index,follow or index,nofollow), not hardcoded english
  4325       page names
  4326     * ACL security fix for PageEditor, thanks to Dr. Pleger for reporting
  4327     * default options for new users are same as for anon users
  4329 Version 1.2.2 (2004-06-06, Revision 1.185)
  4331 Fixes:
  4332     * python related:
  4333      * own copy of difflib removed
  4334        Until moin 1.2.1 we had our own copy of python 2.2.3's difflib coming
  4335        with moin. This was to work around some problems with broken older 2.2
  4336        python installations. We removed this now because if you have py 2.3,
  4337        there is even a better difflib coming with python (and that fixes an
  4338        extremely slow diff calculation happening in some rare cases).
  4339        So the good news is that when you run python 2.3, you don't need to do
  4340        anything and it will run great. If you run python 2.2.3, it will mostly
  4341        work good and you also don't need to do anything. The bad news is that
  4342        if you run an old and broken 2.2 installation (2.2.1, maybe 2.2.2) you
  4343        will have to fix it on your own (just copy from python 2.2.3
  4344        over to your python 2.2.x installation).
  4345        But better upgrade to python 2.3 (for debian woody, there's a backport),
  4346        as 2.3 generally runs better and faster than 2.2.
  4347      * scripts changed to use #!/usr/bin/env python (not /usr/bin/python2.2)
  4349     * user accounts and ACLs:
  4350      * we now require the user to specify a password for a new account (you
  4351        were not able to login without a password anyway)
  4352      * it is not allowed any more to create user accounts with user names
  4353        matching config.page_group_regex - please check manually that you do
  4354        not already have such users existing (like a user named "AdminGroup"):
  4355        cd data/user ; grep name=.*Group *  # there should be no output!
  4356      * subscription email sending now honours ACLs correctly
  4358     * markup / rendering / user interface fixes:
  4359      * fixed merging multiple lines indented by the same amount of blanks
  4360      * ## comments don't break tables in two parts
  4361      * added a "remove bookmark" link to RecentChanges
  4362      * fixed action=titleindex (added \n after each entry)
  4364     * RSS fixes:
  4365      * non-ASCII characters should work now
  4366      * RSS feed (Recentchanges?action=rss_rc) gives UTC timestamps now
  4367      * removed attribute breaking RSS feed on RecentChanges
  4369     * better email generation:
  4370      * if you use python >=2.2.2, we add a Message-ID header to emails
  4371      * if you use python 2.2.1, there is no email.Header. Instead of crashing
  4372        (like previous moin 1.2.x releases), we just use the subject "as is" in
  4373        that case. If it is not ASCII, this is not standards compliant.
  4374      * If you have >=2.2.2 it will use email.Header to make standards compliant
  4375        subject lines.
  4376      * use config.mail_from as sender address when sending "lost my password"
  4377        emails
  4379     * file attachments:
  4380      * fixed for standalone server
  4381      * attachment URLs (when handled by moin) don't include server name
  4382      * fixed some wrong &amp;amp; in html src
  4384     * better themeability:
  4385      * some entries in dict "d" where only present in header theme calls, some
  4386        only in footer theme calls. Now almost all is present in both calls.
  4387      * added some missing "content" divs so sidebar themes look better
  4389     * fixed some crashes producing backtraces:
  4390      * no IOError when diffing against deleted page
  4391      * no backtrace in xml footnote generation
  4392      * no SystemInfo crash when no editlog exists in new wikis
  4393      * xmlrpc.getRecentChanges fixed
  4395     * MoinMoin.util.filesys.rename is now a wrapper around os.rename that
  4396       fixes os.rename on broken win32 api semantics
  4398 Other Changes:
  4399     * saving traffic and load by improved robot meta tag generation:
  4400      * "noindex,nofollow" on queries and POSTs
  4401      * "index,follow" on FrontPage and TitleIndex (give robots a chance ;))
  4402      * "index,nofollow" on all other pages (hopefully saving lots of senseless
  4403        requests for page?action=...) 
  4404      * removed config.html_head_queries (was used for same stuff)
  4405     * added russian i18n (utf-8)
  4406     * misc. other translation updates / fixes
  4407     * added rightsidebar theme
  4408     * TitleIndex now folds case, so "APage" and "anotherPage" are both under
  4409       letter "A".
  4410     * added macro/ - it calculates the hits each page gets since
  4411       beginning of logging
  4414     * Full text and title search do now support multiple search terms - 
  4415       see HelpOnSearching for details
  4417     * The Formatter interface was changed. Formatter and parser using 
  4418       the formatter interface have to be adjusted.
  4420 Version 1.2.1 (2004-03-08, Revision 1.184)
  4422 Fixes:
  4423     * minimum requirement to run moin 1.2/1.2.1 is python 2.2.2
  4424      * not: 2.2(.0), as this does not have True/False
  4425      * not: 2.2.1, as this does not have email.Header. You maybe can work
  4426        around that one by:
  4427       * getting the python 2.2.x (x>=2) /usr/lib/python2.2/email directory
  4428       * putting it into directory 'x' (whereever you like)
  4429       * doing a sys.path[0:0] = ['x'] in moin.cgi [or other appropriate place]
  4430       No guarantee, this is untested.
  4431     * Twisted: the http headers missed the charset data, fixed
  4432     * mod_python: fixes for mod_python 2.7
  4433     * wiki/data/plugin/ added - fixes not working plugin modules
  4434     * plugin processors work now, too
  4435     * fixed displaying non-existent translations of SiteNavigation in footer
  4436     * fixed zh-tw iso name (wrong zh_tw -> correct zh-tw)
  4437     * fixed reversed diffs in RecentChanges RSS
  4438     * fixed "last change" info in footer (wasn't updated)
  4439     * fixed event.log missing pagename (and other) information
  4440     * fixed horizontal line thickness >1
  4441     * fixed running from CVS workdir
  4442     * fixed crash when doing action=info on first revision of a page
  4443     * fixed hostname truncation in footer
  4444     * minor css fixes
  4445     * fixed clear msg links (they missed quoting, leading to strange page
  4446       names when you click on some of them)
  4447     * fixed python colorizer processor
  4448     * fixed quoting of stats cache filenames
  4449     * catched "bad marshal data" error when switching python versions
  4451 Other changes:
  4452     * updated danish (da) i18n
  4453     * updated japanese (ja) i18n
  4454     * added serbian (sr) i18n
  4455     * added chinese (zh) i18n
  4456     * added a simple "viewonly" theme based on classic theme - you can use
  4457       this as default theme, so anonymous users won't get the usual wiki stuff,
  4458       but a far simpler (and less powerful) user interface.
  4459       It also displays the navibar at the left side.
  4460     * added moin.spec for building RPMs
  4461     * included MoinMoin/i18n/* into distribution archive (nice for translators)
  4462     * included some stuff under MoinMoin/scripts - xmlrpc-tools and account
  4463       checking stuff. removed some version control clutter from the dist
  4464       archive, too.
  4466     * code colorization was refactored and some new languages (Java, C++,
  4467       Pascal) where added.
  4468     * inline: display of attachments was extended. A Parser now knows which
  4469       extensions it can handle.
  4471 Version 1.2 (2004-02-20, Revision 1.183)
  4473 New features:
  4474     * MoinMoin now requires Python >=2.2.2., we recommend to use Python >=2.3.2
  4475       (with 2.3.x, MoinMoin runs about 20-30% faster).
  4476     * by refactoring request processing, we made it possible to run moin under
  4477       persistent environments:
  4478         * twisted-web (
  4479         * (use for starting this mini server)
  4480         * mod_python
  4481         * FastCGI
  4482       Of course, CGI is still possible.
  4483     * wiki pages will be compiled to bytecode now (by default), so no need for
  4484       slow parsing/formatting on every view ("WASP", see caching_formats)
  4485     * when using a persistent environment (like twisted) and WASP, you get up
  4486       to 20x speed - compared to CGI and moin 1.1
  4487     * added support for diffs between arbitrary revisions.
  4488     * removed requirement of the external diff utility
  4489     * config.auth_http_enabled (defaults to 0) - use this to enable moin
  4490       getting your authenticated user name from apache (http basic auth,
  4491       htpasswd) - if you enable this, your basic auth username has to be the
  4492       same as your wiki username.
  4493       Should work with CGI, FCGI and maybe even with mod_python.
  4494       Does not change behaviour of moin under twisted or standalone server.
  4495     * config.tz_offset = 0.0 sets a default timezone offset (in hours
  4496       from UTC)
  4497     * config.cookie_lifetime (int, in hours, default 12) sets the lifetime of
  4498       the MOIN_ID cookie:
  4499         == 0  --> cookie will live forever (no matter what user has configured!)
  4500         > 0   --> cookie will live for n hours (or forever when "remember_me")
  4501         < 0   --> cookie will live for -n hours (forced, ignore "remember_me"!)
  4502     * added themeing and some themes (if you improve the existing themes or
  4503       make nice new ones, please contribute your stuff!). The default theme is
  4504       set by config.theme_default (and defaults to 'classic').
  4505     * now supporting plugin directory for parsers, processors, themes, xmlrpc.
  4506     * action=info now defaults to showing page revision history again
  4507     * all actions accessing the logfile (as RecentChanges or history) are now
  4508       much faster
  4509     * #refresh processing instruction, config.refresh
  4510         * config.refresh = (minimum_delay, target_allowed)
  4511             * minimum delay is the minimum waiting time (in seconds) allowed
  4512             * target_allowed is either 'internal' or 'external', depending on
  4513               whether you want to allow only internal redirects or also
  4514               external ones. For internal redirects, just use the Wiki pagename,
  4515               for external, use http://... url.
  4516         * #refresh 3                    == refresh this page every 3 seconds
  4517         * #refresh 5 FrontPage          == internal redirect to FrontPage in 5s
  4518         * #refresh 5 == redirect to google in 5s
  4519       Use very carefully! Allowing a low minimum_delay and putting a #refresh
  4520       on RecentChanges might slow down your wiki significantly, when some
  4521       people just let their browser refresh and refresh again. Also, it does
  4522       cause quite some traffic long-term. So better do not use this without
  4523       good reason! Default is None (switched off).
  4524     * hide most UserPreferences options before user has logged in, less
  4525       confusing for new users
  4526     * "config.page_dict_regex" defines what pages are dictionary definitions
  4527       Currently dictionaries are used for UserHomePage/MyDict where you can
  4528       define key:: value pairs that get processed like @DATE@ expansion when
  4529       saving a page. The 2 "@" will be added to your keys automatically.
  4530       Please do not use @xxx@ strings on the right side (value), results may
  4531       vary if you do.
  4532       You can also access wiki dictionaries by using the internal macro
  4533       [[GetVal(page,key)]]" - that will go to page "page" and return the
  4534       value (right side) corresponding to "key".
  4535       Implementation note: groups are a subset of the dictionary functionality.
  4536     * standalone server should work now (see server/, so you don't
  4537       need to setup apache or twisted for a local personal wiki, you only need
  4538       python and moin for that now, no additional stuff any more!
  4539     * if you run your wiki with charset = "utf-8" (the default is still
  4540       iso8859-1), you might want to have a look at contributions/utf8-pages/
  4541       to see if there are already translated system pages for your language.
  4543 Fixes:
  4544     * new importPlugin routine (the old one didn't work correctly)
  4545     * removed 0xA0 characters breaking utf-8
  4546     * system page recognition now uses wiki groups (see AllSystemPagesGroup),
  4547       fixing the long-time broken system page exclusion on TitleIndex.
  4548     * mostly HTML 4.01 Strict compliant HTML
  4549     * design is done by CSS now, HTML is semantic markup only 
  4550     * removed target attribute from links, also [^NewWindow] markup - this
  4551       is a HTML 3.2 feature and not valid in HTML 4.01
  4552     * updated TWikiDrawPlugin to 20021003 version, with further modifications
  4553       including source. It can draw imagemaps now and saves PNG. On display a
  4554       GIF will be searched if no PNG is found. We recommend changing all GIFs
  4555       to indexed PNGs cause this fallback might disappear in later versions.
  4557       Sample code using bash and ImageMagick (be sure you know what you do):
  4558       for draw in `find /path/to/wiki/data -name \*.draw`; do
  4559         file=`dirname $draw`/`basename $draw .draw`
  4560         if [ -e "${file}.gif" ]; then
  4561           echo "Converting ${file}.gif to ${file}.png"
  4562           convert "${file}.gif" "${file}.png"
  4563         fi
  4564       done
  4566     * fixed email headers and encoding
  4567     * Changed moin-usercheck to adhere to scripting standards; no
  4568       proprietary config changes needed any more (added --config);
  4569       --wikinames is now part of the usage message.
  4570     * config.umask now defaults to 0770 - if you give world r/w access, ACLs
  4571       could be rather pointless...
  4573 Removed config variables:
  4574     * external_diff (not needed any more, we have internal diff now)
  4575     * shared_metadb (wasn't implemented for long - we will re-add it, when it is)
  4576     * title1/2 (please use page_header1/2)
  4577     * page_icons_up
  4579 Changed config variables:
  4580     * changed_time_fmt (removed some html and brackets around time from default)
  4581     * html_head (default is empty string now)
  4582     * page_footer1/2 (default is empty string now)
  4583     * page_icons (is now a list of icon names, not html any more)
  4584     * umask (default is 0770 now, not world r/w any more == more secure)
  4586 New config variables (see MoinMaster:HelpOnConfiguration):
  4587     * cookie_lifetime
  4588     * mail_login
  4589     * page_credits
  4590     * page_dict_regex
  4591     * page_group_regex
  4592     * page_header1/2
  4593     * page_iconbar 
  4594     * page_icons_table
  4595     * page_license_enabled
  4596     * page_license_page
  4597     * theme_default
  4598     * theme_force
  4599     * tz_offset 
  4601 Other:
  4602     * lots of internal code refactoring and optimization
  4603     * began moving src code documentation to epydoc, see "make epydoc"
  4604     * the URL for the RecentChanges RSS feed changed. It now only works with
  4605       ...?action=rss_rc.
  4607 Known problems:
  4608     * theme support is neither complete (although covering most important
  4609       stuff) nor perfect - work on that will continue...
  4610     * we removed some html from system messages (the boxes at top of page you
  4611       get after some actions), so it currently looks less nice than before.
  4612     * html is not completely validating and it is not xhtml - this will be
  4613       fixed as soon as we have the infrastructure for that (other parser, DOM)
  4614     * problems with rtl (right-to-left) languages, will be fixed in 1.3
  4615     * if you change moin_config or switch themes, moin will still use already
  4616       cached page content. For the config this can be fixed by touching
  4617       MoinMoin/ (or simply deleting everything in
  4618       data/cache/ If you get more annoyed by this than pleased by
  4619       caching speedup, you can also switch off caching (see docs on
  4620       caching_formats).
  4622 Themeing and HTML/CSS cleanup:
  4623     * Browsers with completely broken CSS support (like e.g. Netscape 4.x) are
  4624       no longer supported. If you still need to support them, do not upgrade to
  4625       moin 1.2. If you still use these browsers, we recommend that you upgrade
  4626       your browser first (Mozilla 1.5 has nice and standards compliant HTML and
  4627       CSS support and is available as Free Software for Windows, Linux and Mac).
  4628     * If you changed any html in code or by config you will have to check if it
  4629       still works. For the usual stuff, look into `MoinMoin/theme/`
  4630       and `classic/css/screen.css`. For config defaults of the html fragments,
  4631       read `MoinMoin/`. If you want to modify a theme, don't simply
  4632       change classic, but copy or subclass it under a new theme name.
  4633     * because of the new theme support the layout of the `htdocs` directory
  4634       changed:
  4635       * Instead of using icons under `img/` and css under `css/`, there will
  4636         be an additional `themename/` directory in between, e.g. `classic/img/`
  4637         and `classic/css/`. If you added own icons, you may have to copy them
  4638         to the themes directory.
  4639       * The filename of the CSS file has changed to the media type, so the
  4640         normal one used for screen output has changed name from `moinmoin.css`
  4641         to `screen.css`. There also were quite some changes and enhancements to
  4642         the CSS files, so better use the new ones.
  4643     * config.css_url was removed
  4645 Plugins:
  4646   * we use a new plugin loader that requires a correct `` file in
  4647     the plugin directories. See the directory `wiki/data/plugin/` in the
  4648     distribution archive and just copy it over to your wiki's plugin directory.
  4651 Version 1.1 (2003-11-29, Revision 1.178)
  4653 Version 1.1 requires Python 2.0 or higher, we recommend to use Python 2.2
  4654 (version 2.2.2 if that is available on your host) or even better >= 2.3.2
  4655 (with 2.3.x, MoinMoin runs about 20-30% faster).
  4657 New features:
  4658   Configuration:
  4659     * config.default_lang lets you set a default language for users not
  4660       having specified language in their browser or UserPreferences
  4661     * "config.page_category_regex" defines what pages are categories
  4662     * replaced `config.page_template_ending` by a more flexible setting
  4663       named `config.page_template_regex`
  4664     * the same with config.page_form_regex (was: page_form_ending)
  4665     * "config.page_group_regex" defines what pages are group definitions
  4666       Currently groups are used for "user groups" (see ACLs) and "page
  4667       groups" (see AllSystemPagesGroup).
  4668     * robot exclusion from all pages except the standard view action,
  4669       via the config.ua_spiders regex (reduces server load)
  4670     * "maxdepth" argument for the TableOfContents macro
  4671     * config.title1, config.title2, config.page_footer1,
  4672       config.page_footer2 can now be callables and will be called with
  4673       the "request" object as a single argument (note that you should
  4674       accept any keyword arguments in order to be compatible to future
  4675       changes)
  4676     * "config.html_pagetitle" allows you to set a specific HTML page
  4677       title (if not set, it defaults to "config.sitename")
  4678     * navi_bar / quicklinks can now contain free-form links, i.e.
  4679       entries of the form "[url linktext]" just like in wiki pages
  4680     * if a quick link starts with '^', it opens in a new window; help
  4681       now opens in a new window also
  4682     * `config.smileys` for user-defined smileys (default: `{}`) - a dict
  4683       with the markup as the key and a tuple of width, height, border, image
  4684       name as the value).
  4685     * `config.hosts_deny` to forbid access based on IP address
  4686     * `config.mail_login` can be set to username and password separated by
  4687       a space, e.g. "username userpass", if you need to use SMTP AUTH
  4688     * `config.edit_locking` can be set to None (old behaviour, no
  4689       locking), 'warn <timeout mins>' (warn about concurrent edits, but
  4690       do not enforce anything), or 'lock <timeout mins>' (strict locking)
  4691     * optionally showing a license text on editor page, use:
  4692       config.page_license_enabled = 1
  4693       Optionally use these to customize what is shown there:
  4694       config.page_license_text = "... your text ..."
  4695       config.page_license_page = "MyLicensePage"
  4696       See the default values in MoinMoin/ for details and
  4697       override them in, if needed.
  4698     * `config.shared_intermap` can be a list of filenames (instead of a
  4699       single string)
  4700     * If you have added your own `SecurityPolicy`, the class interface for
  4701       that has changed (see ``).
  4703   Authenticaton / Authorization:
  4704     * added ACL support, written by Gustavo Niemeyer of Conectiva and
  4705       Thomas Waldmann. See HelpOnAccessControlLists for more infos.
  4706       You should use MoinMoin/scripts/ before activating
  4707       ACLs or some users with bad or duplicate accounts might get into
  4708       trouble.
  4709     * A user account can be disabled using or
  4710       UserPreferences page. Disabling, but keeping it is good for edit
  4711       history.
  4712     * changed security default: deletion only available to known users
  4713     * support for Basic authentication (Apache style: AUTH_TYPE="Basic",
  4714       REMOTE_USER="WikiUserName"). If authentication is there, user
  4715       will be in ACL class "Trusted".
  4716     * support for username / password login
  4717       The username / password login will ONLY work, if you define a
  4718       password. With an empty password, username / password login is not
  4719       allowed due to security reasons. Passwords are stored encrypted
  4720       (format similar to Apache SHA) and can also be entered in the
  4721       UserPreferences form in this format. When requesting login
  4722       information by email, the password is also sent in this encrypted
  4723       format (use copy&paste to fill it in the form).
  4724       ...?action=userform?uid=<userid> is still possible, so if you have
  4725       bookmarks, they will still work). The input field for the ID was
  4726       dropped.
  4727       NOTE: using the userid for login purposes is DEPRECATED and might
  4728             be removed for better security soon.
  4729     * after logging in, you will get a cookie valid until midnight.
  4730       The next day, the cookie will expire and you will have to login
  4731       again. If you don't want this, you can check the "remember me
  4732       forever" option in UserPreferences.
  4733     * if the page file is read-only, you get a message (i.e. you can now
  4734       protect pages against changes if you're the wiki admin).
  4735       Note: you can do that easier using ACLs.
  4737   Markup / Macros / Actions:
  4738     * RandomQuote macro (and even parses Wiki markup now)
  4739     * `[[Navigation]]` macro for slides and subpage navigation
  4740     * [[ShowSmileys]] displays ALL smileys, including user-defined ones
  4741     * the Include macro has new parameters (from, to, sort, items) and
  4742       is able to include more than one page (via a regex pattern)
  4743     * `MailTo` macro for adding spam-safe email links to a page
  4744     * if a fancy link starts with '^' (i.e. if it has the form
  4745       "[^http:... ...]"), it's opened in a new window
  4746      * because of that, the NewWindow macro was removed from contrib
  4747     * "#pragma section-numbers 2" only displays section numbers for
  4748       headings of level 2 and up (similarly for 3 to 6)
  4749     * ../SubPageOfParent links
  4751   User interface:
  4752     * new fancy diffs
  4753     * Page creation shows LikePages that already exist
  4754     * editor shows the current size of the page
  4755     * editor returns to including page when editing an included page
  4756     * Visual indication we're on the editor page (new CSS style)
  4757     * selection to add categories to a page in the editor (use preview
  4758       button to add more than one category)
  4759     * if user has a homepage, a backup of save/preview text is saved as
  4760       a subpage UsersHomePage/MoinEditorBackup
  4761     * added "revert" link to PageInfo view (which makes DeletePage more
  4762       safe in public wikis, since you can easily revive deleted pages
  4763       via revert)
  4764     * Selection for logged in users (i.e. no bots) to extend the listing
  4765       of recent changes beyond the default limits
  4766     * Activated display of context for backlinks search
  4767     * Subscriber list shown on page info
  4768     * LikePages shows similar pages (using difflib.get_close_matches)
  4769     * last edit action is stored into "last-edited" file, and
  4770       displayed in the page footer
  4771     * reciprocal footnote linking (definition refers back to reference)
  4772     * "Ex-/Include system pages" link for title index
  4773       Note: system/help pages algorithm is still mostly broken.
  4774     * list items set apart by empty lines are now also set apart
  4775       visually (by adding the CSS class "gap" to <li>)
  4776     * "save" check for security.Permissions
  4777     * Added Spanish, Croatian and Danish system texts
  4778     * Added flag icons for the languages supported in "i18n"
  4779     * updated help and system pages, more translations, see also
  4780       AllSystemPagesGroup
  4781     * there was quite some work done on wiki xmlrpc v1 and v2 - it
  4782       basically works now.
  4784   Tools and other changes:
  4785     * moin-dump: New option "--page"
  4786     * there are some scripts MoinMoin/scripts/* using wiki xmlrpc for
  4787       backup and wiki page copying applications
  4788     * Updated the XSLT parser to work with 4Suite 1.0a1
  4789     * more infos in cgi tracebacks
  4790     * UPDATE.html is a HTML version of MoinMaster:HelpOnUpdating
  4792 Unfinished or experimental features:
  4793     * user defined forms
  4794     * XML export of all data in the wiki
  4795     * RST parser (you need to install docutils to use this)
  4796     * SystemAdmin macro
  4798 Privacy fixes:
  4799     * do not use / display user's email address in public places
  4802     * Removed two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities reported by "office"
  4804 Bugfixes:
  4805     * Bugfix for PageList when no arguments are given
  4806     * Disallow full-text searches with too short search terms
  4807     * [ 566094 ] TitleIndex now supports grouping by Hangul Syllables
  4808      * fix for multibyte first char in TitleIndex
  4809     * Footnotes were not HTML escaped
  4810     * Numbered code displays are now in a table so that you can cut the
  4811       code w/o the numbers
  4812     * Bugfix for wrong mail notifications
  4813     * Create unique anchors for repeated titles
  4814     * [ 522246 ] Transparently recode localized messages
  4815     * [ 685003 ] Using "preview" button when editing can lose data
  4816     * use gmtime() for time handling
  4817     * fixed negative gmtime() arguments
  4818     * [[Include]] accepts relative page names
  4819     * fixed ||NotInterWiki:||...||
  4821 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4822 Version 1.0 (2002-05-10, Revision 1.159)
  4825 should occur, a maintenance release will fix them.
  4827 Some optional features (like statistics) already require Python 2.0.
  4829 New features:
  4830     * security fix: "allow_xslt" has to be set to 1 in order to enable
  4831       XSLT processing; note that this defaults to 0 because XSLT is able
  4832       to insert arbitrary HTML into a wiki
  4833     * "action=content" for transclusion into static web pages; emits the
  4834       pure page content, without any <html>, <head>, or <body> tags
  4835     * "?action=links&mimetype=text/plain" works like MeatBall:LinkDatabase
  4836     * "Preferred language" and "Quick links" user settings
  4837     * Added "processor" concept, processors work on the data in "code
  4838       displays" and are called by a bangpath in the first line of data
  4839     * Processors: Colorize, CSV (see HelpOnProcessors)
  4840     * New icons: "{OK}", "(./)", "{X}", "{i}", "{1}", "{2}" and "{}"
  4841       (see HelpOnSmileys)
  4842     * FullSearch now displays context information for search hits
  4843     * DeletePage offers a textentry field for an optional comment
  4844     * Email notifications are sent in the user's language, if known from
  4845       the preferences
  4846     * @PAGE@ is substituted by the name of the current page (useful
  4847       for template pages)
  4849 Unfinished features:
  4850     * user defined forms
  4851     * XML export of all data in the wiki
  4852     * RST parser (you need to install docutils to use this)
  4853     * XMLRPC interface
  4855 Bugfixes:
  4856     * Syntax warning with Python 2.2 fixed
  4857     * Macro-generated pagelinks are no longer added to the list of links
  4858     * error codes returned by "diff" are reported
  4859     * fix for attachments on pages with non-USASCII names
  4860     * correct handling of spaces in attachment filenames and URLs
  4862 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4863 Version 0.11 (2002-03-11, Revision 1.151)
  4865 Most important new features: file attachments, definition list markup
  4866 (glossaries), change notification via email, variable substitution when
  4867 saving pages, edit preview, and improved documentation.
  4869 Note that the RSS features require a recent PyXML (CVS or 0.7) due to
  4870 bugs in the namespace handling of xml.sax.saxutils in earlier versions.
  4871 This is (hopefully) automatically detected on every installation.
  4873 Statistical features are NOT designed to work with Python 1.5.2 and
  4874 require Python 2.0 or higher. Overall, MoinMoin 0.11 is not explicitely
  4875 tested for 1.5.2 compatibility.
  4877 New features:
  4878     * XML formatting now (most often) produces well-formed, and, depending
  4879       on proper layout of the wiki page, valid StyleBook XML
  4880     * Headers are now automatically numbered, unless you set the config
  4881       item 'show_section_numbers' to 0
  4882     * "#pragma section-numbers off" (or "0") switches that off explicitely,
  4883       and "on" or "1" enables numbering 
  4884     * Added a "contributions" directory for 3rd party extensions
  4885     * AttachFile action, contributed by Ken Sugino; note that you have
  4886       to enable this action because of the possibility of DoS attacks
  4887       (malicious uploads), by adding this to your moin_config:
  4888             allowed_actions = ['AttachFile']
  4889     * "attachment:" URL scheme allows access to attachments, to get files
  4890        from other pages use "attachment:WikiName/filename.ext".
  4891     * New macros: Date(unixtimestamp) and DateTime(unixtimestamp) to
  4892       display a timestamp according to system/user settings
  4893     * Variable substitution when a page is saved, note that saving

  4920       * config.shared_intermap can contain a pathname to a shared
  4921         "intermap.txt" file (i.e. one stored outside the datadir)
  4922     * added `backtick` shortcut for {{{inline literal}}} (has to be
  4923       enabled by "backtick_meta=1" in the config file); note that ``
  4924       is then a shorter replacement for '''''' escaping

  4939     * "config.nonexist_qm" is now the default for a user setting

  4959     * super^script^, sub,,script,, and __underline__ markup
  4960     * `[[FootNote]]` macro
  4961     * many other new config options, see HelpOnConfiguration for

  4964       defined types: hitcounts, pagesize, useragents)
  4965     * 'inline:' scheme works like 'attachment:', but tries to
  4966       inline the content of the attachment into the page;

  4968     * support for Java applet "TWikiDrawPlugin" via
  4969       drawing:<drawingname> URL scheme (you need to activate
  4970       the AttachFile action if you want drawings)
  4971     * numeric entities (&#nnnnn;) are now optionally NOT escaped,

  4999 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  5000 Version 0.10 (2001-10-28, Revision 1.134)
  5002 This version is still Python 1.5.2 compatible, but it's not extensively
  5003 tested for that version and some parts of the system might not work
  5004 there, especially seldom used macros and actions. Bug reports welcome!
  5006 New features:
  5007     * "#deprecated" processing instruction
  5008     * config entry "SecurityPolicy" to allow for customized permissions
  5009       (see "" for more)
  5010     * added distutils support
  5011     * though not extensively tested, the standalone server now does POST
  5012       requests, i.e. you can save pages; there are still problems with
  5013       persistent global variables! It only works for Python >= 2.0.
  5014     * "bang_meta" config variable and "!NotWikiWord" markup
  5015     * "url_mappings" config variable to dynamically change URL prefixes
  5016       (especially useful in intranets, when whole trees of externally
  5017       hosted documents move around)
  5018     * setting "mail_smarthost" and "mail_from" activates mailing
  5019       features (sending login data on the UserPreferences page)
  5020     * very useful for intranet developer wikis, a means to view pydoc
  5021       documentation, formatted via a XSLT stylesheet, for details see
  5023       or MoinMoin/macro/
  5024     * "LocalSiteMap" action by Steve Howell <>
  5025     * Added FOLDOC to intermap.txt
  5027 Bugfixes:
  5028     * Full config defaults, import MoinMoin now works w/o
  5029     * Better control over permissions with config.umask
  5030     * Bugfix for a UNIX time billenium bug (affecting RecentChanges
  5031       sorting and page diffs)
  5032     * data paths with directory names containing dots caused problems
  5034 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  5035 Version 0.9 (2001-05-07)
  5037 New features:
  5038     * XML page input (pages that start with "<?xml") and XSLT formatting
  5039     * Page caching, for now limited to XSLT processing (where it's
  5040       absolutely needed); new code & API to add the "RefreshCache" link
  5041     * Selection of common date/time formats in UserPreferences
  5042     * New action "titleindex" to support wiki introspection (MetaWiki);
  5043       see the new links below the index bar in "TitleIndex"
  5044     * UserPreferences: editable CSS URL for personal styles
  5045     * PageInfo: the editor's name or IP is shown for each change
  5046     * WantedPages: a new macro that lists links to non-existent pages
  5047     * OrphanedPages: a new macro that lists pages no other page links to
  5048     * Extensions to the FullSearch macro (see HelpOnMacros)
  5049     * Python syntax highlighting
  5050     * "DeletePage" action (has to be activated, see MoinMoinFaq)

  5053     * Config option "url_schemas" to extend the supported URL types
  5054     * Improved tracebacks by using Ka-Ping's "cgitb"
  5056 Bugfixes:
  5057     * The editor now sends a "no-cache" HTTP header
  5058     * "PageList" results are now sorted
  5059     * New config parameter "html_head_queries": send additional header
  5060       for all pages EXCEPT the "normal" view; main usage is to have
  5061       only the normal pages indexed by a spider, not the edit, print,
  5062       etc. views (which cause multiple hits on the same information)
  5063     * Store the modification time of the page file in the editlog, not
  5064       the current time when the log entry is created
  5066 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  5175 New features:
  5176     * When saving, a datestamp saved in the form and that of the file are
  5177       compared now; so, accidently saving over changes of other people is
  5178       not possible anymore (saving still needs file locking though, for

  5202     * Added "normal" InterWiki links

  5221     * Uppercase letters for the index pages
  5222     * Added PythonPowered logo
  5224 Bugfixes:
  5225     * Javadoc comments now get formatted properly in {{{ }}} sections
  5226     * Remove \r from submitted pages (so we get PORTABLE wiki files)
