AttachFile multifile operation: support copying multiple files to another page
     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 1.9.8:
    20   SECURITY HINT: make sure you have allow_xslt = False (or just do not use
    21   allow_xslt at all in your wiki configs, False is the internal default).
    22   Allowing XSLT/4suite is very dangerous, see HelpOnConfiguration wiki page.
    24   HINT: Python >= 2.5 is maybe required! See docs/REQUIREMENTS for details.
    26   New features:
    27   * cfg.recovery_token_lifetime to determine how long the password recovery
    28     token will be valid, default is 12 [h]. Check this setting to be adequate
    29     before doing (global) password resets, so your users have enough time to
    30     react before the toke times out!
    31   * cfg.log_events_format can be used to configure the format of the records
    32     written to <data_dir>/event-log:
    33     0 = dot not create event-log entries (saves disk space, disk I/O)
    34     1 = standard (like in moin <= 1.9.7) [default]
    35     2 = extended (add infos about username, wikiname, url)
    36   * add a tool to output the contents of the event-log to CSV:
    37     moin export eventlog --file=output.csv
    38     Output encoding is utf-8, columns are in this order:
    39     time, event, username, ip, wikiname, pagename, url, referrer, ua
    40     time: UNIX timestamp (float)
    41   * reimplement cfg.log_timing - if True, emits INFO level log output like:
    43     TIME is in seconds, the slowness indicator is "." for sub-second requests
    44     or N times "!" for requests taking N seconds (so you easily can grep for
    45     slow stuff).
    46   * add "abuse" logging. this will log every attempt to login (successful ones
    47     as well as unsuccessful ones). abuse logging is configured via the logging
    48     configuration, see example in wiki/config/logging/abuse.
    49     Currently, abuse logging is implemented for:
    50     * authentication system
    51       * "moin" auth
    52       * "given" auth
    53       * setuid (when superuser switches to another user)
    54     * new user creation
    55     * some security/ACL violations (xmlrpc and perhaps others not implemented)
    56   * surge protection for authentication (currently only for MoinAuth):
    57     a) surge protect by IP
    58        This covers the case someone is trying to authenticate way too
    59        often - we don't look at the username here, just at the remote IP
    60        address. If surge protection kicks in for some specific IP, that IP
    61        won't be able to try to authenticate any more until surge_lockout_time
    62        is over.
    63        Note: be careful with users behind proxies or NAT routers - these are
    64              common and legitimate cases with (potentially lots of)
    65              authentication requests coming from same IP.
    66              if it is a trusted proxy, you can configure moin so it sees the
    67              real remote IP address (not just the proxy's address).
    68     b) surge protect by name
    69        This covers the case someone is trying to authenticate for a
    70        specific user name way too often (e.g. when someone tries to attack the
    71        wiki admin's account). We don't look at the IP here, just at the user
    72        name. If surge protection kicks in for some specific user name, that user
    73        name will not be able to try to authenticate any more until
    74        surge_lockout_time is over.
    75        Note: this even covers widely distributed attacks against a user, but
    76              you should only enable this if you are aware that the "real" user
    77              also won't be able to authenticate while surge protection is active
    78              (at least not using the account for that specific username).
    79              Thus, there is some denial-of-service danger with this if the
    80              attacker can guess or find your valid user names (which isn't too
    81              difficult if your wiki is publicly readable).
    82              This is bad, but technically hard to avoid.
    83     Configuration (allowing 10 authentication attempts per hour):
    84         surge_action_limits = {
    85             # ...
    86             'auth-ip': (10, 3600),  # same remote ip (any name)
    87             'auth-name': (10, 3600),  # same name (any remote ip)
    88          }
    89   * backlinks performance tuning: the pagename in the theme has historically
    90     been used to trigger a "linkto:ThisPage" search. While this is a nice
    91     feature for human users of the wiki (esp. on category pages), it has one
    92     big issue: as it is a normal link, stupid crawlers (ignoring "nofollow")
    93     follow it and cause a lot of unneccessary load.
    95     What moin shows in that "backlinks" place can now be configured in your
    96     wiki config:
    98     # always render the backlink as in moin < 1.9.8 (bad bots causing high load!):
    99     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'backlink'
   101     # always render a simple link to same page, as in moin 2.0:
   102     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'pagelink'
   104     # logged-in users get the backlink, anon users/bots get a pagelink (default):
   105     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'backlink' if req.user.valid else 'pagelink'
   107     # logged-in users get the backlink, anon users/bots get simple text:
   108     backlink_method = lambda cfg, req: 'backlink' if req.user.valid else 'text'
   109   * AbandonedPages macro: check user agent to reduce load caused by bots
   110   * RSS feed: check for bots and rather give them empty results than waste a
   111     lot of time with them
   112   * ldap_auth: support placeholders for basedn also, e.g. you could use:
   113     base_dn='uid=%(username)s,ou=people,dc=company,dc=com'
   114   * move or delete multiple attachments (see checkboxes and buttons on the
   115     AttachFile view). Be careful: in the same way as you could delete a single
   116     attachment with one click, you can now delete all attachments of a page
   117     with one click (we don't ask for a 2nd confirmation, so think first).
   118   * mailimport: use relative attachment link markup instead of absolute links,
   119     enables some page renaming operations without needing to edit the markup.
   120   * better caching and lookup optimizations for userprofile data:
   121     * name, email, jid, openids -> userid lookups
   122     * page subscriptions for notifications (as a consequence, determination of
   123       subscribers when a page is saved is much faster now, esp. for wikis with
   124       many users) - see also MoinMoinBugs/GetSubscribersSlow
   125   * Notification template strings are now configurable via cfg.mail_notify_...
   126     * page_text (this puts together the pieces for the mail body, used for all
   127       changed / deleted / renamed page mail notifications)
   128     * page_changed_subject, page_changed_intro
   129     * page_deleted_subject, page_deleted_intro
   130     * page_renamed_subject, page_renamed_intro
   131     * att_added_subject, att_added_intro
   132     * att_removed_subject, att_removed_intro
   133     * user_created_subject, user_created_intro
   134     * Best is to read HelpOnConfiguration and look at MoinMoin.config.multiconfig
   135       to see the help text and the defaults.
   136     * The defaults are chosen to be the same as the old hardcoded values, so the
   137       translations keep working.
   138     * If you overwrite the strings in your configuration moin will still try to
   139       translate your strings, but it will only find translations if you add them
   140       to the gettext catalogs, too.
   141     * Examples:
   143       a) notification mail body: you don't want the rendered diff, you don't
   144          want to link to the diff, but to the full page view on your wiki.
   146       # original (default) value
   147       mail_notify_page_text = '%(intro)s%(difflink)s\n\n%(comment)s%(diff)s'
   148       # put this in your wiki config
   149       mail_notify_page_text = '%(intro)s%(pagelink)s\n\n%(comment)s'
   151       b) notification mail subject:
   152       # original (default) value
   153       mail_notify_page_changed_subject = '[%(sitename)s] %(trivial)sUpdate of "%(pagename)s" by %(username)s'
   155       c) notification mail intro:
   156       # original (default) value
   157       mail_notify_page_changed_intro = \
   158           ("Dear Wiki user,\n\n"
   159            'You have subscribed to a wiki page or wiki category on "%(sitename)s" for change notification.\n\n'
   160            'The "%(pagename)s" page has been changed by %(editor)s:\n')
   162       Note: if you change "*_page_changed_*", you likely also want to change
   163       "*_page_deleted_*" and "*_page_renamed_*", maybe even "*_att_added_*"
   164       and "*_att_removed_*".
   166   Fixes:
   167   * security fix: XSS in useragents stats
   168   * do not create empty pagedirs (with empty edit-log). To clean up all the
   169     trash pagedirs, use moin ... maint cleanpage.
   170   * page rename/delete, attachment add/remove email notifications work now
   171     (somehow we had an event for this, but no code handling it)
   172   * AttachFile do=get and do=view: send 404 status if file does not exist
   173   * link rel="Alternate" links: rather use page.url than request.href, so
   174     url_prefix_action gets used for the (print and raw) action URLs
   175   * fixed wrong detection of UI language from accept-language header for not
   176     logged-in users if the language identifier there was (partially) uppercase.
   177   * fix Python 2.7.4/5 compatibility issue with rss_rc action using handler._out
   178   * fix "moin import wikipage" timestamp confusion
   179   * use 302 http status for #redirect as some clients cache 301 redirects, but
   180     the #redirect might get changed or removed later (so it should not be
   181     cached and we also can't really say it is permanent)
   182   * fix crash when macro names contain non-ascii chars
   183   * CopyPage action: fix NameError exception when TextCha was answered wrong
   184   * docbook formatter: fix image URL generation, avoid script name duplication
   185   * fix caching scope of name2id/openid2id caches (was: "wiki", now:
   186     "userdir"). this is relevant for shared user_dir configurations.
   187   * moin maint cleancache: cleans up openid2id cache now also
   188   * "userdir" caching scope used for userid lookup caches (the previously used
   189     name2id cache with "wiki" caching scope could have outdated data if you
   190     share the user_dir between multiple wikis)
   191   * catch "filename too long" exception if some crap URL refers to a too long
   192     pagename that the filesystem can not represent. It is treated like a not
   193     existing page then, so you don't get a traceback in your log file.
   195   Other changes:
   196   * rss_rc action (RSS feed) is now much faster / much less resource consuming
   197     when requested for a specific single page. As we have a link to this in
   198     every page's html output, this likely also lightens the load caused by bots
   199     and search engine crawlers.
   200   * tuned - only open/read log if there is new stuff in it after
   201     last read position
   202   * improve python2.5 compatibility (with_statement)
   203   * add bingbot to ua_spiders
   204   * upgraded bundled werkzeug to 0.8.3
   205   * upgraded bundled passlib to 1.6.2
   206   * upgraded bundled pygments to 1.6
   209 Version 1.9.7:
   210   New features:
   211   * passlib support - enhanced password hash security. Special thanks go to
   212     the Python Software Foundation (PSF) for sponsoring development of this!
   214     Docs for passlib:
   216     If cfg.passlib_support is True (default), we try to import passlib and set
   217     it up using the configuration given in cfg.passlib_crypt_context (default
   218     is to use sha512_crypt with default configuration from passlib).
   220     The passlib docs recommend 3 hashing schemes that have good security, but
   221     some of them have additional requirements:
   222     sha512_crypt needs passlib >= 1.3.0, no other requirements.
   223     pbkdf2_sha512 needs passlib >= 1.4.0, no other requirements.
   224     bcrypt has additional binary/compiled package requirements, please refer to
   225     the passlib docs.
   227     cfg.password_scheme should be '{PASSLIB}' (default) to tell that passlib is
   228     wanted for new password hash creation and also for upgrading existing
   229     password hashes.
   231     For the moin code as distributed in our download release archive, passlib
   232     support should just work, as we have passlib 1.6.1 bundled with MoinMoin
   233     as MoinMoin/support/passlib. If you use some other moin package, please
   234     first check if you have moin AND passlib installed (and also find out the
   235     passlib version you have installed).
   237     If you do NOT want to (not recommended!) or can't use (still using python
   238     2.4?) passlib, you can disable it your wiki config:
   240         passlib_support = False  # do not import passlib
   241         password_scheme = '{SSHA}'  # use best builtin hash (like moin < 1.9.7)
   243     Please note that after you have used moin with passlib support and have user
   244     profiles with passlib hashes, you can't just switch off passlib support,
   245     because if you did, moin would not be able to log in users with passlib
   246     password hashes. Password recovery would still work, though.
   248     password_scheme always gives the password scheme that is wanted for new or
   249     recomputed password hashes. The code is able to upgrade and downgrade hashes
   250     at login time and also when setting / resetting passwords for one or all
   251     users (via the wiki web interface or via moin account resetpw script
   252     command).
   254     So, if you want that everybody uses strong, passlib-created hashes,
   255     resetting the passwords for all users is strongly recommended:
   256     First have passlib support switched on (it is on by default), use
   257     password_scheme = '{PASSLIB}' (also default), then reset all passwords.
   259     Same procedure can be used to go back to weaker builtin hashes (not
   260     recommended): First switch off passlib support, use password_scheme =
   261     '{SSHA}', then reset all passwords.
   263     Wiki farm admins sharing the same user_dir between multiple wikis must use
   264     consistent password hashing / passlib configuration settings for all wikis
   265     sharing the same user_dir. Using the builtin defaults or doing the
   266     configuration in is recommended.
   268     Admins are advised to read the passlib docs (especially when experiencing
   269     too slow logins or when running old passlib versions which may not have
   270     appropriate defaults for nowadays):
   274   * Password mass reset/invalidation support, see docs/resetpw/.
   275     This is useful to make sure everybody sets a new password and moin computes
   276     the password hash using the current configuration.
   278   * Customizable default password checker:
   279     Moin's default password checker used and still uses min_length=6 (minimum pw
   280     length) and min_different=4 (minimum count of different chars in the password).
   281     If you feel that you need to require better passwords from your users, you
   282     can customize it now like that in your wiki config:
   284     password_checker = lambda cfg, request, name, pw: multiconfig._default_password_checker(cfg, request, name, pw, min_length=10, min_different=7)
   286   * Removing/disabling inactive users (moin ... account inactive)
   287     Many wikis have a lot of inactive users, that never ever made a single edit.
   288     See help of the command for more details, be careful.
   289   * SystemAdmin user browser: show disabled user accounts at the bottom of
   290     the list
   291   * At startup, announce moin version and code path in log output (makes
   292     support and debugging easier).
   293   * AttachList: introduced search_term parameter (optional) for listing
   294     attachments filtered by a regular expression on their name.
   295   * sign release archive using GnuPG with the key of
   296     ID 31A6CB60 (main key ID FAF7B393)
   298   Fixes:
   299   * logging: if the logging config file can't be read, give a helpful error msg
   300   * logging: use info loglevel (not warning) for telling about using the builtin
   301     default logging config
   302   * moin script commands: warn if someone gave ... to the moin script, avoids a
   303     strange and unhelpful 'empty module name' error message
   304   * reorder html input fields in recoverpass form, to help browsers remember
   305     the user name and password (not erroneously the recovery token and password)
   306   * don't try to send password recovery email to user if email address in
   307     user profile is empty
   308   * cache action: fix 304 http status
   309   * rst parser: fix safe_import for level param in __import__ call of docutils 0.10
   310   * moin maint cleancache: also kill the i18n cache 'meta' pickle file
   311   * sendmail: catch unicode errors when E-Mail addr has non-ascii chars
   312   * redirect last visited: if last visited page is on same wiki, use a local
   313     redirect, do not compute via interwiki map (fixes https: usage)
   316 Version 1.9.6:
   318   Fixes:
   319   * fix remote code execution vulnerability in twikidraw/anywikidraw action
   320   * fix path traversal vulnerability in AttachFile action
   321   * fix XSS issue, escape page name in rss link
   322   * escape user- or admin-defined css url
   323   * make taintfilename more secure
   324   * use a constant time str comparison function to prevent timing attacks
   325   * Attachment handler: catch all Zip-related errors
   328 Version 1.9.5:
   330   Fixes:
   331    * Security fix: fix virtual group bug in ACL evaluation.
   332    * Avoid crash if #refresh processing instruction is used without arguments.
   333    * Fix issue with non-ASCII textchas.
   334    * Xapian indexing: remove copy.copy() that crashed on Windows/IIS/isapi-wsgi
   335      after page save.
   336    * Fix dictionary file reading crash under Windows.
   337    * Work around crash of AdvancedSearch macro rendering caused by non-ascii
   338      mimetypes.types_map entries.
   339    * Added migration script for moin 1.8.9.
   340    * rss_rc: Fix diffs added in RSS with diffs=1 (now they correspond to item
   341      listed in feed and not just last page diffs). Links generated with ddiffs=1
   342      also fixed.
   343    * rss_rc: fix double escaping issue.
   344    * rss_rc: respect show_names configuration option.
   345    * rss_rc: proper support of rename, revert, page creation.
   346    * modern/modernized theme: fix padding/width for editor preview
   347    * group/pagelinks formatters: avoid to create unnecessary output, redirect
   348      output of send_page call with the groups formatter, it must not be written
   349      to the output stream
   350    * rst parser: fix include and macro directives
   351    * wikisync: fix unicode pagename sending for python 2.7 httplib
   353   New features:
   354    * add a comment_required config option (default: False) to require a
   355      non-empty comment when saving a page
   356    * when a save error happens, show the editor again and highlight the error
   357    * rss_rc: several new options added: lines parameter gives ability to set
   358      maximum size of diffs showed in RSS. show_att parameter gives ability
   359      to show information aboout attachment-related items in RSS. page parameter
   360      gives ability to specify set of pages for which changes RSS feed should be
   361      generated. Configuration of defaults and limits can now be done via wiki
   362      configuration mechanism.
   363    * As soon as it is now possible to provide RSS for page change history,
   364      appropriate alternate link is now added for every page (controlled by
   365      rss_show_page_history_link configuration parameter).
   366    * Search: "no_highlight:" search query option provided for suppressing
   367      highlighting search results.
   368    * Search macros: new options for FullSearch, FullSearchCached and PageList
   369      available:
   370      * highlight_titles option controls highlighting of matches in search
   371        results provided by these macros. Default value is set in
   372        search_macro_highlight_titles configuration option)
   373      * highlight_pages option controls adding of highlight URL parameter to
   374        page links (so search term is highlighted when user goes to one of
   375        these pages via provided link) in search results. Default value is set
   376        in search_macro_highlight_pages configuration option.
   377      Usage of these options is disabled (via search_macro_parse_args
   378      configuration option) by default due to behavioural changes introduced
   379      in macro parameter parsing mechanism to support them. Related to
   380 .
   382   Other changes:
   383    * Remove 4suite dependency for docbook formatter, use minidom (included in

   398    * Fix for MoinMoinBugs/SinglePageSlideShowAndParserMarkup.
   399    * Simplify auto scroll initialization; fix bug in IE init discovered when
   400      using IE7 on pages with wide tables.
   401    * Fix timestamp in edit lock message to show the time when edit-locking ends.
   402    * Updated from internal defaults, sync the one in
   403      toplevel dir and the one in wiki/server/ - fixes hostname setting.
   404    * SubProcess: make sure files are closed at the end (experimental change).
   405    * text plain formatter: fix bullet_list, see number_list.
   406    * Add some image mimetypes to MIMETYPES_MORE to fix windows issues.
   407    * Include page name in password reset URL.
   408    * Fix moin export dump to generate relative URLs.
   409    * Fix MonthCalendar mouseover for pages with ampersand in page name.

   428    * xmlrpc: new methods xmlrpc_getProcessingInstruction(Version)
   429    * Add support for other password hashes (all of them will get auto-upgraded
   430      to SSHA when user logs in):
   431      * {DES} (Unix crypt(3))
   432      * {MD5} (MD5-based crypt())
   433      * {APR1} (Apache .htpasswd). 
   434    * Experimental queued indexing support to work around memory leak - use it like this:
   435      # put all pages into indexer queue:
   436      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=makequeue
   437      # take <count> pages out of the indexer queue and index them,
   438      # you need to repeat the following line respective to the total amount of pages
   439      # in your wiki (doing more indexer calls does no harm, doing less means an
   440      # incomplete index):
   441      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=buildnewindexqueued --count=500
   442      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=buildnewindexqueued --count=500
   443      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=buildnewindexqueued --count=500
   444      # ...
   445      # switch to new index:
   446      python MoinMoin/script/ index build --mode=usenewindex 
   448   Other changes:
   449    * Raise exceptions as recommended in PEP 8.
   450    * Updated i18n / underlay pages.
   451    * Updated interwiki map.
   452    * Use logging.traceback to get more information if a indexing filter crashes.
   453    * u200b is not considered a space any more in unicode 4.0.1.
   454    * Improve textcha security, use some crypto and timing to make cheating
   455      harder - use cfg.textchas_expiry_time = 600 (default, seconds) to set the
   456      time a textcha is valid.
   457    * Upgraded bundled werkzeug to 0.8.1, pygments to 1.4, flup to repo tip.
   460 Version 1.9.3:
   461   Fixes:
   462   * Fix XSS in Despam action (CVE-2010-0828).
   463   * Fix XSS issues (see MoinMoinBugs/1.9.2UnescapedInputForThemeAddMsg):
   464     * by escaping template name in messages
   465     * by fixing other places that had similar issues
   466   * Make moin compatible to werkzeug 0.5 .. 0.6.2 (1.9.2 had issues
   467     with xmlrpc when used with werkzeug 0.6.x).
   468   * MoinMoin.util.filesys: disable usage of dircache, deprecate dc* functions,
   469     because the dircache stdlib module can't work correctly for fast updates of
   470     directories.
   471   * rss_rc and sisterpages actions: fix Content-Type header (mimetype)
   472   * Fix associating OpenID identity with user, wasn't adapted to werkzeug yet.
   473   * openidrp auth: fix undefined _ (gettext)
   474   * Fix auth.cas and userprefs.oidserv request object usage.
   475   * highlight parser: fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumberSpansForProcessInstructionsMissed
   476   * Pygments syntax highlighting: add missing code files
   477   * Notifications: use same email subject format for every notification
   478   * Fix docbook formatter crashing, see MoinMoinPatch/IncludeMacroWithDocBookFormatter
   479   * Fix regex content search for xapian search.
   480   * Get rid of the empty line at the end of code highlights.
   481   * GUI editor: compute editor height like the text editor does.
   482   * Added help texts for: standalone server and moin migration.
   483   * script.maint.cleancache: clean also i18n cache files
   484   * Improved formatter.text_plain, see FeatureRequests/TextPlainFormatterRewrite
   485     (fixes many issues of this formatter).
   486   * text_html_text_moin_wiki: fixed index error for width="", see also:
   487     MoinMoinBugs/GUI_convertor_list_index_out_of_range
   488   * xmlrpc: disable editor backup for putPage, renamePage and revertPage
   489     because if pages get uploaded by xmlrpc then the draft cache file can
   490     rapidly increase in size, causing high memory usage because it needs to
   491     get loaded into memory for updating/processing.
   492   * Emit Content-Type header (with charset) for SlideShow action and many other
   493     actions that just call send_title().
   494   * ActionBase: better compatibility to moin 1.8, use request.values by
   495     default, optionally use request.form data only
   497   New features:
   498   * RenamePage action: added ability to create redirect pages when renaming
   499     (turned off by default, see show_rename_redirect config option).
   500   * formatter/text_html: Added line number links to code blocks.
   501   * diff action:
   502     * Fixed whitespace in generated (html) diff view table so white-space: pre
   503       can be used (and whitespace in diffs preserved).
   504     * Added links to first/last revision.
   505   * MoinMoin.widget.browser: introduced feature for sorting tables, see:
   507   * SystemAdmin user and attachment browsers: sorting feature used there now
   508   * Scrolling the text editor to the double clicked line.
   509   * Enable double-click-editing by default.
   510   * WikiConfigHelp macro: make heading and description display optional,
   511     heading level as a parameter (default 2)
   512   * If edit ticket check fails, send the editor with the current content.
   513   * moin import wikipage - use this script to import local files as a wiki page
   515   Other changes:
   516   * upgraded pygments from 1.2.2 to 1.3.1
   517   * upgraded FCKeditor from to 2.6.6
   518   * added configuration snippet for ldap authentication against 2 servers
   519   * improved script help output
   521 Version 1.9.2:
   522   Fixes:
   523   * Fixed CVE-2010-0668: major security issues were discovered in misc. parts
   524     of moin.
   525     HINT: if you have removed superuser configuration to workaround the issue
   526     (following our security advisory), you may re-add it after installing this
   527     moin release. If you don't need superuser capabilities often, it might be
   528     wise to not have superusers configured all the time, though.
   529   * Fixed CVE-2010-0669: potential security issue due to incomplete user profile
   530     input sanitizing.
   531   * Improved package security: cfg.packagepages_actions_excluded excludes
   532     unsafe or otherwise questionable package actions by default now.
   533   * wiki parser: fixed transclusion of (e.g. video) attachments from other
   534     pages.
   535   * Fixed edit locking for non-logged in editors and cfg.log_remote_addr=False.
   536   * mailimport: fix missing wikiutil import for normalize_pagename
   537   * SubProcess: fix "timeout" AttributeError
   538   * "standalone" fixed calling non-existing os.getuid on win32
   539   * HTTPAuth deprecation warning moved from class level to __init__
   540   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/1.9DiffActionThrowsException.
   541   * Fixed misc. session related problems, avoid unneccessary session file
   542     updates.
   543   * Fix/improve rename-related problems on Win32 (depending on Windows version).
   544   * Fixed spider / user agent detection.
   545   * Make sure to use language_default when language_ignore_browser is set.
   546   * diff action: fix for case when user can't revert page.
   547   * Fix trail size (was off by one).
   548   * Updated bundled flup middleware (upstream repo checkout), avoids
   549     socket.fromfd AttributeError on win32 if cgi is forced, gives helpful
   550     exception msg.
   551   * wikiutil: Fixed required_arg handling (no exception when trying to raise
   552     exception that choice is wrong).
   553   * Do not use* to import 3rd party code, give dist packages
   554     a chance.
   555   * wikiutil.clean_input: avoid crash if it gets str type
   556   * request: fixed for werkzeug 0.6 and 0.5.1 compatibility. Please note that
   557     we didn't do much testing with 0.6 yet. So, if you use 0.6, please do some
   558     testing and provide feedback to us.
   559   * AttachFile._build_filelist: verifies readonly flag for unzip file link
   560   * attachUrl: fix wrongly generated tickets (e.g. for AttachList macro)
   561   * http headers: fix duplicated http headers (e.g. content-type)
   563   New features:
   564   * info action: added pagination ability to revision history viewer.
   565     Use cfg.history_paging = True [default] / False to enable/disable it.
   566   * ldap_login auth: add report_invalid_credentials param to control wrong
   567     credentials error message (this is typically used when using multiple
   568     ldap authenticators).
   569   * Add RenderAsDocbook to actions_excluded if we have no python-xml.
   570   * Upgraded pygments to 1.2.2 (some fixes, some new lexers).
   571   * Text editor: if edit_rows==0 (user profile or config), we dynamically size
   572     the text editor height. This avoids double sliders for the editor page
   573     in most cases.
   575   Other changes:
   576   * New docs/REQUIREMENTS.
   577   * Added a less magic cgi/fcgi driver (moin.fcgi), added fixer middleware
   578     for apache2/win32 to it.
   581 Version 1.9.1:
   582   Bug fixes:
   583   * Fixed CVE-2010-0667: sys.argv security issue.
   584   * Fixed FileSessionService - use session_dir from CURRENT request.cfg (it
   585     mixed up session_dirs in farm setups).
   586     HINT: if you added the hotfix to your wikiconfig, please remove it now.
   587   * Fixed creation of lots of session files (if anon session were enabled and
   588     user agent did not support cookies).
   589   * Fixed session file storage for a non-ascii base path.
   590   * Fixed session cookie confusion for nested URL paths (like path=/ and
   591     path=/mywiki - for more info, see also "New features").
   592   * Handle cookie_lifetime / anonymous_session_lifetime upgrade issue
   593     gracefully: emit errors/warnings to log, use old settings to create
   594     cfg.cookie_lifetime as expected by moin 1.9.
   595   * flup based frontends: fixed SCGI and AJP (didn't work).
   596   * farmconfig example: remove wrong comment, add sample http/https entry.
   597   * Fixed password reset url (email content needs full URL).
   598   * Page: fixed adding of page contents (only data added now, without metadata) -
   599     fixes MoinMoinBugs/DeprecatedPageInclusionErrornousPageInstructionsProcessing
   600   * xmlrpc:
   601     * Process attachname in get/putAttachment similarly.
   602     * revertPage: convert pagename to internal representation.
   603     * Fixed auth calls used by jabberbot (needs more work).
   604   * Added missing config.umask support code (setting was not used), fixed
   605     config.umask usage for page packages.
   606   * Fixed browser language detection.
   607   * Fixed language pack generation/installation for pt-br, zh, zh-tw.
   608   * Fixed caching of formatted msgs, see MoinMoinBugs/1.9EditPageHelpLinksBroken.
   609   * Fixed usage of i18n.wikiLanguages() on class level (moved to method), failed
   610     when tools import the module (e.g. pydoc -k foo).
   611   * highlight parser:
   612     * fixed caching issue for "toggle line numbers" link.
   613     * added missing support for console/bash session
   614   * Fixed precedence of parsers: more special parsers now have precedence
   615     before moin falls back to using the HighlightParser (syntax highlighting).
   616   * Added extensions to the rst, moin and creole parser (example.rst, example.moin and
   617     example.creole attachments are rendered now when viewed).
   618   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumberSpansForProcessInstructionsMissed for
   619     moin_wiki, highlight and plain parser.
   620   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumberAnchorsInPreformattedText for highlight and
   621     plain parser.
   622   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsBrokenForIncludedPages.
   623   * Exception raised on calling add_msg() after send_title(), which leads to 
   624     Internal Server Error on calling several actions (diff, preview) for 
   625     deprecated pages, is replaced with warning and call stack information in 
   626     the log.
   627   * AttachFile.move_file: send events (so e.g. xapian index update happens)
   628   * SubProcess: fixed win32-specific parts, fixed imports (fixes calling of
   629     external xapian index filters)
   630   * Fixed auth methods that use redirects (like OpenID).
   631   * OpenID client:
   632     * Add setting cfg.openidrp_allowed_op, default is [].
   633     * Fixed logging in with openid and associating with an existing account.
   634     * openidrp_sreg extension: handle UnknownTimeZoneError gracefully
   635   * OpenID server:
   636     * Fixed TypeError.
   637     * Fixed processing POSTed form data AND URL args.
   639   New features:
   640   * diff: Added displaying of information about revisions (editor, size, 
   641     timestamp, comment), added revision navigation.
   642   * text editor: added @TIMESTAMP@ variable for adding a raw time stamp
   643   * xmlrpc: added renamePage and deleteAttachment methods.
   644   * Accept "rel" attribute for links (moin wiki parser).
   645   * Generate session cookie names to fix cookie path confusion and enable port-
   646     based wiki farming.
   648     HINT: New setting cfg.cookie_name:
   650     None (default): use MOIN_SESSION_<PORT>_<PATH> as session cookie name. This
   651                     should work out-of-the-box for most setups.
   653     'siteidmagic': use MOIN_SESSION_<SITEID>, which is unique within a wiki farm
   654                    created by a single farmconfig (currently, cfg.siteid is just
   655                    the name of the wiki configuration module).
   657     'other_value': use MOIN_SESSION_other_value - this gives YOU control. Just
   658                    use same value to share the session between wikis and use a
   659                    different value, if you want a separate session.
   661     HINT: Please do not use cfg.cookie_path any more - it usually should not be
   662     needed any more, as we now always put path=/ into the cookie except if you
   663     explicitly configure something else (only do that if you know exactly what
   664     you're doing and if the default does not work for you).
   666     HINT: see also the HelpOnSessions page which shows some typical configs.
   667   * Store expiry into sessions, use moin maint cleansessions script to clean up.
   668     HINT: use moin ... maint cleansessions --all once after upgrading.
   669     HINT: you may want to add a cron job calling moin ... maint cleansessions
   670           to regularly cleanup expired sessions (it won't remove not expired
   671           sessions).
   673   Other changes:
   674   * Added rtsp, rtp, rtcp protocols to url_schemas.
   675   * Added more info about index building to xapian wikiconfig snippet.
   676   * Updated the wikicreole parser to version 1.1.
   679 Version 1.9.0:
   680   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
   681         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
   682         relative to 1.8.6 release.
   683         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
   686   New features: ==============================================================
   687   * HINT: MoinMoin requires Python 2.4 now. If you only have Python 2.3 and
   688     you don't want to upgrade it, please use MoinMoin 1.8.x.
   689   * HINT: MoinMoin is now a WSGI application.
   690     Please read the new install docs about how to use it, see:
   692     You also have a local copy of that page as docs/INSTALL.html.
   693   * HINT: due to big changes in the request processing and the request
   694     object (related to the WSGI refactoring), many 3rd party plugins might
   695     need code updates to work with moin 1.9.
   696   * HINT: We now offer different sized sets of system/help pages and the default
   697     underlay just contains a single page: LanguageSetup. You need to be
   698     superuser, visit that page and then install the language packs you like
   699     (minimum is the essential set for English).
   700   * HINT: LanguageSetup is the default page_front_page, you need to change that
   701     after installing language packs (see above).
   703   * New modular group and dict data access, you can use group and dict 
   704     backend modules to access group and dict data stored anywhere you like.
   705     Currently we provide these backends:
   706       * WikiGroups and WikiDicts backends get data from wikipages. They work
   707         similar to old wikidicts code (but with less caching issues :).
   708       * ConfigGroups and ConfigDicts backends get data from a dictionary
   709         defined in the wiki config.
   710       * CompositeGroups and CompositeDicts compose several backends, so data
   711         may be retrieved from several sources. For example, groups may be
   712         defined in the wiki config and on wiki pages.
   713     * Using cfg.groups and cfg.dicts, you can define the backend to use to
   714       access group and dict information (default: WikiGroups / WikiDicts
   715       backend).
   716       See the wiki/config/more_samples/ directory (groups_wikiconfig_snippet
   717       and dicts_wikiconfig_snippet).
   718     * See also the new HelpOnDictionaries and HelpOnGroups pages.
   720   * Improved Xapian indexing / search:
   721     * Moin's Xapian based search code was refactored:
   722       * It is now based on the xappy library (see
   723       * Minimum Xapian requirement is 1.0.6 now.
   724       * Outdated and unmaintained xapwrap lib was removed.
   725       * regex search with Xapian enabled also is based on the xapian index now
   726     * Safe 2-stage xapian index rebuilding:
   727       moin index build --mode=buildnewindex  # slow, concurrent
   728       <stop wiki>
   729       moin index build --mode=usenewindex  # fast
   730       <start wiki>
   731     * Added wikiconfig snippet for xapian search.
   733   * Improved drawing support:
   734     * TWikiDraw:
   735       * Support code was refactored/moved to the twikidraw action.
   736       * Use drawing:example.tdraw to invoke it (drawing:example also still
   737         works for backwards compatibility)
   738       * Drawings are now stored as a single attachment foo.tdraw.
   739         We added a migration script that converts your existing drawings.
   740     * AnyWikiDraw:
   741       * Java applet added, source code see contrib/.
   742       * Support code for it is in anywikidraw action.
   743       * Use drawing:example.adraw to invoke it.
   744       * Drawings are stored in a similar way as foo.adraw.
   745     * cfg.extensions_mapping added for mapping of attachment file extensions
   746       to actions (currently used for anywikidraw/twikidraw action)
   748   * Themes / static files related:
   749     * Added modernized_cms theme (hides most wiki widgets from modernized if the
   750       user is not logged in).
   751     * Static file serving built-in (moved wiki/htdocs to MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs).
   752       MoinMoin.web.static has a static file serving wrapper that uses the files
   753       from htdocs subdirectory by default (docs=True).
   754       You can also give another path or switch off creation of that static wrapper.
   755       See the docstring of the static package for details.
   756     * Theme packages: do_copythemefile now copies theme files to
   757       MoinMoin/web/static/htdocs.
   759   * Syntax highlighting is based on the pygments library now, it does this for
   760     LOTS of stuff (programming languages, config files, ...) - use it like this:
   761     {{{#!highlight xxx
   762     ...
   763     }}}
   764     xxx is any of the markups pygments supports (see HelpOnParsers).
   765     Note: we still have some (deprecated) small wrappers around pygments,
   766     so the old syntax #!python/pascal/cplusplus/... still works.
   768   * Authentication improvements:
   769     * HTTP auth related (see also HelpOnAuthentication):
   770       * HTTPAuthMoin: http basic auth done by moin
   771       * HINT: auth.http.HTTPAuth is now auth.GivenAuth
   772         This was badly named from the beginning as for most servers, it just
   773         looked at REMOTE_USER environment variable and relied on the server
   774         doing the authentication (could be http basic auth or any other auth).
   775     * LDAP/AD auth: new name_callback param to create a custom wiki username (not
   776       the ldap login username)
   777     * OpenID auth:
   778       * Support for Simple Registration (SREG) extension.
   779         Basic profile fields can be copied from OpenID provider when logging in.
   780       * Support for Teams extension.
   781       * Ability to accept logins from specific OpenID providers.
   782         Login form changes based on configuration for better usability:
   783         * 0 providers: normal text input box for OpenID URL
   784         * 1 provider: hidden field, automatic form submission with JavaScript
   785         * 2+ providers: select field, uses directed identity
   787   * Sessions / cookies:
   788     * HINT: cfg.cookie_lifetime is now a tuple (anon, loggedin), giving the
   789       lifetime of the cookie in hours, accepting floats, for anon sessions and
   790       logged-in sessions. Default is (0, 12). 0 means not to use a session
   791       cookie (== not to establish a session) and makes only sense for anon users.
   792     * cfg.cookie_httponly is new and defaults to False. Please note that if you
   793       set it to True, TWikiDraw and similar stuff won't be able to use the session
   794       cookie. Thus, if your wiki page doesn't allow writing for everybody, saving
   795       a drawing will fail, because there is no session (== no logged in user) for
   796       the TWikiDraw applet's saving POSTs.
   798   * Macros:
   799     * WikiConfigHelp: added section keyword for selecting a subset of the
   800       description, e.g. <<WikiConfigHelp(section="xapian")>>
   801     * HighlighterList: show Pygments syntax highlighters (see HelpOnParsers)
   803   * Actions:
   804     * SlideShow action added (please use the "modernized" theme [default])
   805     * raw action mimetype support: ...?action=raw&mimetype=text/css
   806     * PackagePages: create package file on-the-fly in memory and send it to the
   807       client (do NOT create attachment)
   809   * Improved logging / debugging / developer support:
   810     * Main exception handler: include request url in log output.
   811     * Environment variable MOIN_DEBUGGER=off/web/external (default is "off").
   812     * Handle wikiserverconfig(_local) in the same way as wikiconfig(_local).
   814   * GUI editor: improved attachment dialog
   816   * "moin ... account homepage" script to create user homepages.
   819   Removed features: ==========================================================
   820   * Removed cfg.traceback_* settings (use logging configuration)
   821   * Removed old session code and settings:
   822     * Removed cfg.session_handler and session_id_handler (use cfg.session_service)
   823     * Removed cfg.anonymous_session_lifetime (use cfg.cookie_lifetime)
   826   Bug fixes: =================================================================
   827   * Xapian indexing:
   828     * Rely on xapian's locking (remove moin's additional and sometimes broken
   829       locking, that blocked index-rebuilds or updates sometimes).
   830     * Removed indexer threading.
   831     * Fixed (reimplemented) indexer queue.
   832     * Less disruptive xapian index rebuild.
   833   * AdvancedSearch: example didn't work, fixed
   835   * With the groups/dicts code rewrite, we fixed the caching problems that the
   836     old code (< 1.9) sometimes had.
   838   * Actions:
   839     * Abort RenamePage if renaming of main page fails (do not try to rename
   840       subpages).
   841     * AttachFile do=view: quote filename and pagename params for EmbedObject
   842       macro call
   843     * unsubscribe action: add msg types so icons get displayed
   845   * Parsers:
   846     * fixed MoinMoinBugs/LineNumbersWorkingBuggyWithHighlightParser
   848   * GUI editor: roundtripping works now for .pdf/doc/... attachment transclusion
   850   * AttachFile: added remove_attachment() and FileRemovedEvent (mail and xapian
   851     support, no jabber support yet).
   853   * Fix makeForbidden403() calls - is makeForbidden(403, ...) now.

   856   * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6XmlRpcPutPagePagenameEscape
   857   * Bug with "language:en" was fixed for the Moin search. Now language:
   858     behaves like described on HelpOnSearching.
   859   * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/DeprecatedIsNotRespected (search ranking, WantedPages).
   860   * OpenID: always return error messages with CancelLogin if OpenID process fails.
   861   * suid: simplify and fix, bigger selection box
   863   * patch werkzeug 0.5.1 to catch OverFlowError and ValueError so it doesn't
   864     crash when receiving invalid If-modified-since header from client.
   867   Other changes: =============================================================
   868   * 'modernized' theme:
   869     * use it by default (1.8 used 'modern')
   870     * move title_with_separators() from Modernized theme to ThemeBase
   871     * add a span with "pagepath" class to title_with_separators
   872   * add the sidebar() method from Mandarin and Gugiel themes to ThemeBase
   873   * updated flup to 1.0.2+ ( )
   874   * updated pygments to 1.1.1+ ( )
   875   * updated parsedatetime to 0.8.7
   876   * increase surge protection limits for AttachFile to avoid trouble with image galleries

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

   988     * Improve filesys.rename compatibility code (win32).
   989     * Fix locking for CacheEntry.
   990     * Xapian indexing: catch exception when a bad zip file is encountered.
   991     * openidrp / botbouncer: fix param count for CancelLogin().
   993   New features:
   994     * Added CAS authentication.
   995     * Added httponly cookie support and use it for session cookie.
   997   Other changes:
   998     * HTTP auth: added debug logging.
   999     * Minor LDAP auth improvements.
  1000     * Data browser widget:
  1001       * Add (h)column<idx> css class to make it styleable.
  1002       * Include only necessary autofilter options.
  1003     * moin maint cleancache purges now drafts, too.
  1004     * Add gopher and apt protocols to url_schemas.
  1005     * Add .csv, .flv, .swf to MIMETYPES_MORE.
  1008 Version 1.8.4:
  1009   Bug fixes:
  1010     * ACL security: fix bug in hierarchical ACL processing, more restrictive
  1011       sub page ACLs did not work if the current user name did not give a match
  1012       within the sub page ACL (instead, the less restrictive parent page ACL
  1013       was used).
  1014       Non-hierarchical ACL processing (the default) is NOT affected.
  1015     * Creole parser: fix spaces in multiline elements.
  1016     * Use msie.css only for Internet Explorer older than version 8, fixes
  1017       e.g. the double rendering of link icons.
  1018     * http auth: do auth_type comparisons case-insensitively (spec-compliant)
  1020   New features:
  1021     * EmbedObject macro: changed default width value for PDF files to 100%
  1022                          (use a recent Adobe Reader to make this work).
  1023     * CopyPage action: added a TextCha for it
  1025   Other changes:    
  1026     * Creole parser: Add second license: BSD
  1029 Version 1.8.3:
  1030   Bug fixes:
  1031     * AttachFile XSS fixes: move escaping to error_msg / upload_form
  1032     * AttachFile move: add more escaping (maybe not XSS exploitable though)
  1033     * email attachments import with xapian indexing enabled: fix AttributeError
  1034     * fix wrong links in attachment notifications
  1035     * AttachFile do=view: quote filename and pagename params for EmbedObject
  1036       macro call
  1037     * AttachFile: fix exception when someone just clicks on upload, without
  1038       giving a file
  1039     * ldap_login: use None as default value for ssl certs/keys (using '' for
  1040       the pathes lets it fail with Connect Error)
  1041     * release edit lock if someone saves an unchanged page
  1042     * fix sendmail.encodeAddress (do not [QP] encode blanks, do not un-
  1043       necessarily use [QP] encoding for pure ascii mail addresses)
  1044     * Fixed docs bug: see HINT about secrets configuration at version 1.8.0
  1045       (1.8.0 Other changes).
  1046     * backup action: add 'self' dummy argument for backup_exclude function
  1047     * login action: fix formatting of error messages
  1048     * unsubscribe action: add msg types so icons get displayed
  1049     * fix quoting for pagehits stats (info action) - was not working for pagenames with blanks
  1050     * macro.TableOfContents: bug fix for MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsIgnoresSectionNumbersPragma
  1052   New features:
  1053     * added modernized_cms theme
  1054     * use url_prefix_fckeditor if you don't want to use the builtin FCKeditor
  1055       of moin, but a separate one at some specific url
  1056     * action.Load: added textcha feature
  1057     * add mumble protocol (nice and good quality F/OSS VOIP conference chat sw)
  1058     * ldap auth: new name_callback param to create a custom wiki username (not
  1059       the ldap login username).
  1061   Other changes:
  1062     * add compatibility code for set to xapwrap.index (fix py 2.6 warnings)
  1063     * wikiutil: MIMETYPES_MORE extended for .md5 as text/plain
  1066 Version 1.8.2:
  1067   Bug fixes:
  1068     * Fix AttachFile and antispam XSS issues.
  1069     * Modernized, modern and rightsidebar themes: make nonexistent or
  1070       badinterwiki links gray also when they are already visited.
  1071     * Fix anchor parsing for interwiki links and #redirect processing
  1072       instruction.
  1073     * user.apply_recovery_token: key must be of type string (for Python 2.6).
  1074     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorBreaksIndentedTable.
  1075     * Fix autofilter javascript breakage caused by including a databrowser
  1076       widget.
  1077     * Use per-wiki i18n cache (fixes wrong links to other farm wikis).
  1078     * Made cfg.interwikiname and cfg.user_homewiki unicode objects (str only
  1079       worked for ascii names).
  1080     * Xapian search: fixed historysearch.
  1081     * Xapian search indexing:
  1082       * Fix index updating for trivial changes.
  1083       * With history search enabled and in update mode, do not try to re-index
  1084         old page revisions again.
  1085       * With history search enabled, index page attachments only once.
  1086       * Fix last modified time of xapian index (shown on SystemInfo page).
  1087     * Make logging handlers defined in logging.handlers work (e.g.
  1088       class=handlers.RotatingFileHandler)
  1089     * Jabber notifications:
  1090       * Use an RFC compliant message type.
  1091       * Fix user creation notifications.
  1092     * OpenID: Compatibility fix for python-openid 2.x.x (also works with
  1093       1.x.x), fixes crash when trying to associate moin user to OpenID.
  1094     * Have a in wiki/server/ so copies it.
  1095     * Fixed inconsistent handling of fragments / anchor IDs:
  1096       * Fixed creole and wiki parser, other parsers might need similar fixes.
  1097       * IDs with blanks, non-ASCII chars etc. are now sanitized in the same way
  1098         for links as well as for link targets, so the user editing a page won't
  1099         have to bother with it.
  1100         E.g. [[#123 foo bar]] will link to:
  1101         * <<Anchor(123 foo bar)>> (moin) or {{#123 foo bar}} (creole)
  1102         * headline = 123 foo bar = (moin / creole)
  1103         Simple rule: if the link and the target are consistent, it should work.
  1104       * The creole wiki parser created non-human-readable sha1 heading IDs
  1105         before 1.8.2, now it creates same (sometimes readable) heading IDs as
  1106         the moin wiki parser.
  1107       * TitleIndex/WordIndex now also use IDs sanitized in that way internally.
  1108       HINT: if you manually worked around the inconsistencies/bugs before, you
  1109             likely have to remove those workarounds now. Same thing if you used
  1110             creole's sha1 heading IDs or IDs on TitleIndex/WordIndex.
  1112   Other changes:
  1113     * Updated FCKeditor to 2.6.4 (== many bug fixes in the GUI editor).
  1114     * Enhanced privacy by a new setting: cfg.log_remote_addr (default: True),
  1115       it controls whether moin logs the remote's IP/hostname to edit-log and
  1116       event-log. Use log_remote_addr = False to enhance privacy.
  1117     * Streamline attachment_drawing formatter behaviour.
  1118     * Search results: only redirect to a single search result for titlesearch
  1119       (fuzzy goto functionality), but not for fulltext search results.
  1123 Version 1.8.1:
  1124   Bug fixes:
  1125     * Workaround win32 locking problems (caused by spurious access denied
  1126       exceptions on that platform).
  1127     * Fix unicode errors that happened when password checker failed a password
  1128     * WikiConfig/WikiConfigHelp: fixed wrong language table headings
  1129     * Themes: make the margins around trail line work properly
  1130     * "modernized" theme:
  1131       * make broken links gray
  1132       * add new right/center/left/justify css classes
  1133       * don't force Arial
  1134     * Standalone server: be more specific when catching socket exceptions,
  1135       treat socket errors in http header emission in the same way.
  1136     * GUI editor:
  1137       * Fix heading levels when inserting new headings.
  1138       * Fix headers already sent exception when using e.g. edit LOCKing.
  1139     * Xapian indexing: fixed missing import for execfilter (only happened on
  1140       non-posix platforms like win32)
  1142   * New features:
  1143     * Themes:
  1144      * Make the TOC shrinkwrap, add white background to navigation macro.
  1145        The table of contents looked bad spanning the whole width of the page.
  1146        It's made to shrinkwrap now, so it will only get as wide, as the longest
  1147        heading. We use display:inline-table, so this won't work in MS IE6,
  1148        which still displays it the old way.
  1149        Navigation macro now has a white background, to make it more readable
  1150        when it's floating over a pre block or TOC.
  1151      * Make the numbers in lists in table of contents right-aligned.
  1152      * Refactored and extended theme.html_stylesheets() to make alternate
  1153        stylesheets possible. Stylesheet definitions now can either be:
  1154        2-tuples: (media, href)  # backwards compatibility
  1155        or:
  1156        3-tuples: (media, href, title)  # new, for defining alternate stylesheets
  1157        This works within themes as well as in the wiki config.

  1161 Version 1.8.0:
  1162   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
  1163         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
  1164         relative to 1.7.2 release.
  1165         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
  1168   New Features: ==============================================================
  1169     * HINT: New "modernized" theme - if you use "modern" [default], try:
  1170       theme_default = 'modernized'
  1171       If you find problems with "modernized", please report them because we
  1172       want to use it as default theme in future.
  1173     * GUI Editor:
  1174       * upgraded to use FCKEditor version 2.6.3
  1175       * user can insert and modify various types of MoinMoin links
  1176     * New plugin_dirs setting to allow multiple plugin pathes (additional to
  1177       the automatically configured plugin_dir [default: data_dir/plugin]).
  1178     * @EMAIL@ expands to a MailTo macro call with the obfuscated email address
  1179       of the current user.
  1180     * New macros "WikiConfig" and "WikiConfigHelp".
  1181     * Per-parser quickhelp, 'quickhelp' class variable of parser class.
  1182     * Secure session cookies for https (see cfg.cookie_secure).
  1183     * Added left/center/right/justify css classes to builtin themes.
  1184       Use them like:
  1185       {{{#!wiki justify
  1186       this content is justified....
  1187       }}}
  1189   Removed Features: ==========================================================
  1190     * HINT: url_prefix setting (use url_prefix_static or just use the default)
  1191     * traceback_log_dir setting (we just use logging.exception)
  1192     * editor_quickhelp setting (replaced by per-parser quickhelp)
  1193     * Restoring backups with the backup action and related settings (while
  1194       creating backups is no big issue and should work OK, restoring them
  1195       had fundamental issues related to overwriting or not-overwriting of
  1196       existing files - thus we removed the "restore" part of the action and
  1197       recommend that you just contact the wiki server admin in case of trouble,
  1198       give him your wiki backup file and let him carefully restore it.)
  1199     * Removed unmaintained DesktopEdition (moin 1.5.x style) and phpwiki
  1200       migration scripts from contrib/ directory.
  1202   Bug Fixes: =================================================================
  1203     * GUI Editor - fixed lots of bugs.
  1204     * Fixing https detection for servers using HTTPS=1 and also for WSGI
  1205       servers not using HTTPS/SSL_ environment, but just wsgi.url_scheme.
  1206     * Search results: link to 'view' rendering of found attachments.
  1207     * Standalone server: fix serverClass and interface argument processing,
  1208       announce used serverClass in log output.
  1209     * mointwisted: fixed Twisted start script.
  1210     * Logging:
  1211       * Use logging framework for messages emitted by warnings module (e.g.
  1212         DeprecationWarning), silence some specific warnings.
  1213       * Removed superfluous linefeeds in timing log output.
  1214     * Bug fix for language not installed (MoinMoinBugs/WikiLanguageNotDefined).
  1215     * Fixed editbar hidden comment link cosmetics for sidebar themes (hide the
  1216       complete list element).
  1217     * MoinMoinBugs/DoubleScriptNameInSitemap (fixing urls given by sitemap
  1218       action, if the wiki does not run in the root url of the site)
  1219     * Fixed backup action configuration (broke on win32).
  1220     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/PackagesAddRevision.
  1221     * SyncPages: add workaround for callers calling log_status with encoded
  1222       bytestrings.
  1223     * Fixed dbw_hide_buttons javascript.
  1224     * HINT: Jabber bot can now be configured to use an authentication realm
  1225       which is different from the server's hostname; the xmpp_node
  1226       configuration parameter can now contain a full JID and the xmpp_resource
  1227       parameter is no longer supported.
  1229   Other Changes: =============================================================
  1230     * HINT: new configuration for misc. secrets, please use either:
  1231           secrets = "MySecretLooongString!" # one secret for everything
  1232       or:
  1233           secrets = {
  1234               'xmlrpc/ProcessMail': 'yourmailsecret', # for mailimport
  1235               'xmlrpc/RemoteScript': 'yourremotescriptsecret',
  1236               'action/cache': 'yourcachesecret', # unguessable cache keys
  1237               'wikiutil/tickets': 'yourticketsecret', # edit tickets
  1238               'jabberbot': 'yourjabberbotsecret', # jabberbot communication
  1239           }
  1240       Secret strings must be at least 10 chars long.
  1241       Note: mail_import_secret setting is gone, use
  1242             secrets["xmlrpc/ProcessMail"] instead of it.
  1243       Note: jabberbot secret setting is gone, use
  1244             secrets["jabberbot"] instead of it.
  1245     * HINT: user_autocreate setting was removed from wiki configuration and
  1246       replaced by a autocreate=<boolean> parameter of the auth objects that
  1247       support user profile auto creation.
  1248     * moin import irclog: use irssi parser to format logs, mapped .irc
  1249       extension to text/plain mimetype.
  1250     * HINT: backup action: backup_exclude (default: "do not exclude anything")
  1251       is now a function f(filename) that tells whether a file should be
  1252       excluded from backup.
  1253       You can get the old regex exclusion functionality by using:
  1254       backup_exclude = re.compile(your_regex).search
  1255       Be careful with your regex, you might need to use re.escape() to escape
  1256       characters that have a special meaning in regexes (e.g.: \.[] etc.).
  1257       If in doubt, maybe just leave backup_exclude at the default and don't
  1258       exclude anything.
  1259     * Speed up javascript comments processing on IE by getElementsByClassName()
  1260     * Added sk (slovak) i18n, updated i18n.
  1263 1.7.3:
  1264   New features:
  1265     * Secure session cookies for https, see cfg.cookie_secure.
  1266     * Add left/center/right/justify classes to builtin themes.
  1268   Fixes:
  1269     * Python 2.3 compatibility fixes.
  1270     * Fixed https detection for servers using HTTPS=1 and also for wsgi servers
  1271       not using HTTPS/SSL_ environment, but just wsgi.url_scheme.
  1272     * GUI editor:
  1273       * Fix crash when editing a page with non-ASCII pagename and inserting a link
  1274       * Fix "headers already sent exception" with edit LOCKs.
  1275     * i18n.__init__: Bug fix for wiki language not installed.
  1276     * Fixed URLs given by sitemap action, if the wiki does not run at / URL.
  1277     * Search results: link to 'view' rendering of found attachments
  1278     * Logging:    
  1279       * Removed superfluous linefeed in timing log output.
  1280       * Use logging framework for messages emitted by warnings module (e.g.
  1281         DeprecationWarning), silence some specific warnings.
  1282     * Fix dbw_hide_buttons javascript.
  1283     * Standalone server:
  1284       * fix serverClass argument processing
  1285       * fix --interface="" argument processing
  1286     * mointwisted:
  1287       * added missing pidFile parameter
  1288       * better use for pidFile to avoid conflicts and keep same
  1289         behaviour as in the past
  1290     * Jabber bot can now be configured to use an authentication realm which
  1291       is different from the server's hostname
  1294 Version 1.7.2:
  1295   Fixes:
  1296     * Fix leakage of edit-log file handles (leaked 1 file handle / request!).
  1297     * Fix for MoinMoinBugs/SystemAdminMailAccountData (using POST and forms)
  1298     * Wiki parser: avoid IndexError for empty #! line
  1299     * MonthCalendar macro: fix parameter parsing / url generation
  1300     * Xapian indexing filters (MoinMoin/filter/ or data/plugin/filter/):
  1301       Some indexing filter scripts (e.g. for MS Word documents or PDF files)
  1302       failed on windows because of the single-quote quoting we used (that
  1303       works on Linux and other Posix systems). The fix introduces platform-
  1304       dependant automatic quoting, using double-quotes on win32 and single-
  1305       quotes on posix.
  1306       HINT: if you use own filter plugins based on execfilter, you have to
  1307       update them as the filename quoting (was '%s') is now done automatically
  1308       and must not be part of the command string any more (now just use %s).
  1309       See MoinMoin/filter/ for some up-to-date code (esp. the PDF filter).
  1310     * Prevent CategoryTemplate being listed as a category (it is a Template,
  1311       but matched also the category regex) - added to sample wikiconfig.
  1312     * LDAP auth: fix processing of TLS options
  1313     * UpdateGroup xmlrpc server side: fix wrong arg count error
  1314     * UpdateGroup client: use multicall / auth_token, refactor code so that
  1315       updateGroup function is reusable.
  1316     * Improve Python 2.3 compatibility, add notes where 2.4 is required.
  1319 Version 1.7.1:
  1320   New features:
  1321     * New 'cache' action (see developer notes).
  1323   Fixes:
  1324     * Security fix: XSS fix for advanced search form
  1325     * Avoid creation of new pagedirs with empty edit-log files by just
  1326       accessing a non-existant page. If you used 1.7 before, you likely have
  1327       quite some trash pagedirs now and you can clean them up by using:
  1328       moin --config-dir=... --wiki-url=... maint cleanpage
  1329       This will output some shell script (please review it before running!)
  1330       that can be used to move trash pages into some trash/ directory and also
  1331       moves deleted pages into some deleted/ directory. Maybe keep a copy of
  1332       those directories for a while just for the case.
  1333     * Server specific fixes:
  1334       * standalone ( fix --pidfile and --group option, fix
  1335         operation without a (use builtin defaults).
  1336       * mod_python: work around mod_python 3.3.1 problems with file uploads.
  1337         Note: if you are still using mod_python, we strongly recommend you
  1338 	      try out mod_wsgi (in daemon mode) - it has less bugs, better
  1339 	      security, better separation, WSGI is a Python standard, and moin
  1340 	      developers also use WSGI. See HelpOnInstalling/ApacheWithModWSGI.
  1341     * revert action: fixed for deleted pages.
  1342     * Search:
  1343       * Xapian indexing: Removed crappy "hostname" tokenization.
  1344         Fixes MoinMoinBugs/1.7 XapianNotWorkingWithLeadingNumbersInTitle.
  1345         Also tokenize CamelCase parts of non-wikiwords.
  1346       * Make query parser reject more invalid input.
  1347       * If query parsing raises a BracketError, at least tell what the problem
  1348         is (and not just raise empty  ValueError).
  1349       * Category search: ignore traling whitespace after ----
  1350     * Argument parser:
  1351       * Fixed sort() usage in UnitArgument to be Python 2.3 compatible.
  1352       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TypeErrorInWikiutils.
  1353     * Macros:
  1354       * TableOfContents: skip outer-most <ol> levels when page isn't using
  1355         the biggest headings
  1356       * MonthCalendar: fix MoinMoinBugs/MonthCalendarBreaksOnApostrophe
  1357     * xslt parser: fix MoinMoinBugs/DoNotConvertUnicodeToUTF8ForXsltParser
  1358     * OpenID RP: make it compatible to python-openid 2.2.x
  1359     * PackagePages.collectpackage: removed encoding from file name of zipfile
  1360     * Surge protection: exclude localnet no matter whether user is known or not.
  1361     * Notifications: fix MoinMoinBugs/DuplicateNewUserNotification
  1362     * Script moin account create/disable/resetpw: checks for already existing
  1363       user now.
  1365   Other changes:
  1366     * Prevent CategoryTemplate being listed as a category (it is a Template)
  1367       by changing the default page_category_regex.
  1369   Developer notes:
  1370     * New MoinMoin.action.cache - can be used to cache expensively rendered
  1371       output, e.g. generated images). Once put into the cache, moin can emit
  1372       a http response for that content very fast and very efficient (including
  1373       "304 not changed" handling.
  1374     * New file-like API in MoinMoin.caching (good for dealing with medium
  1375       to large files without consuming lots of memory).
  1376     * wikiutil.importPlugin supports getting the whole plugin module object
  1377       by giving function=None.
  1380 Version 1.7.0:
  1381   Note: This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and
  1382         also less interesting minor changes and fixes. It shows changes
  1383         relative to 1.6.3 release.
  1384         If you want to see full detail, read it there:
  1387   New Features: ==============================================================
  1388     * HINT: we added generic UPDATE instructions as docs/UPDATE.html.
  1390     * HINT: Standalone server usage changed:
  1391       * Standalone server can now be started via the "moin" script command,
  1392         optionally backgrounding itself.
  1393         See: moin server standalone --help
  1394       * In the toplevel dir, we have renamed to (it was
  1395         often confused with the moin scripting command).
  1396         Now you have:
  1397         * - to start the standalone server
  1398         * - to configure the standalone server
  1399         * wikiserverlogging.conf - to configure logging for it (default config
  1400           is ok for all day use, but can easily be modified for debugging)
  1401         * - to configure the wiki engine
  1402       * Removed old moin daemonizing script (replaced by moin server standalone
  1403         --start/stop)
  1404       * We now provide the "moin" script command also for people not using
  1405, see wiki/server/moin.
  1407     * Logging
  1408       * New powerful and flexible logging, please see wiki/config/logging/ -
  1409         HINT: you have to upgrade your server adaptor script (e.g. moin.cgi)
  1410         and load a logging configuration that fits your needs from there, or
  1411         alternatively you can also set MOINLOGGINGCONF environment variable
  1412         to point at your logging config file.
  1413         If you use some of our sample logging configs, make sure you have a
  1414         look INTO them to fix e.g. the path of the logfile it will use.
  1415       * Moin now logs the path from where it loaded its configuration(s).
  1417     * Authentication / Sessions:
  1418       * HINT: New authentication plugin system, see HelpOnAuthentication. If
  1419         you do not use the builtin default for 'auth' list, you likely have to
  1420         change your configuration. See wiki/config/snippets/ for some samples.
  1421       * HINT: New session handling system (no moin_session any more, now done
  1422         internally and automatically), see HelpOnSessions for details.
  1423       * Added OpenID client and server support.
  1424         See: HelpOnAuthentication and HelpOnOpenIDProvider.
  1425       * cfg.trusted_auth_methods is a list of auth methods that put an
  1426         authenticated user into the "Trusted" ACL group.
  1428     * User profiles / password recovery / notification:
  1429       * New newacount action for creating new user accounts/profiles. If you
  1430         don't want users creating new accounts on their own, you can add this
  1431         action to actions_excluded list.
  1432       * New recoverpass action for password recovery:
  1433         If you forgot your password, recoverpass sends you an email with a
  1434         password recovery token (NOT the encrypted password) that is valid
  1435         for 12 hours.
  1436       * New moin account resetpw script for resetting a user's password by
  1437         the wiki admin.
  1438       * New preferences plugin system, see MoinMoin/userprefs/
  1439       * New notification system with an optional jabber notification bot, see
  1440         HelpOnNotification. HINT: wiki users have to check their notification
  1441         settings, esp. if they want to receive trivial update notifications.
  1443     * The diff action now has navigation buttons for prev/next change and also
  1444       a revert button to revert to the revision shown below the diff display.
  1445     * ThemeBase: support Universal Edit Button, see there for details:
  1447     * ?action=info&max_count=42 - show the last 42 history entries of the page.
  1448       max_count has a default of default_count and a upper limit of
  1449       limit_max_count - you can configure both in your wiki config:
  1450       cfg.history_count = (100, 200) # (default_count, limit_max_count) default
  1451     * The CSV parser can sniff the delimiter from the first CSV line so other
  1452       delimeters than ";" can be used.
  1453     * Admonition support. Added styling for tip, note, important, warning 
  1454       and caution in the modern theme. For more info see HelpOnAdmonitions.
  1455     * DocBook-formatter:
  1456       * supports HTML entities like &rarr; and &#9731;
  1457       * supports the FootNote macro
  1458       * supports bulletless lists
  1459       * support for admonitions
  1460       * will export the wiki page's edit history as the generated article's
  1461         revision history. Doesn't add history of included pages.
  1462       * supports for the MoinMoin comment element, though only inline comments
  1463         are likely to be valid since the DocBook remark is an inline element.
  1464     * New Hits macro: shows the total hits for the page it is used on.
  1466   Removed Features: ==========================================================
  1467     * HINT: Removed attachments direct serving (cfg.attachments - this was
  1468             deprecated since long!). Use AttachFile action to serve attachments.
  1469     * Duplicated file attachment upload code was removed from Load action (just
  1470       use AttachFile action to deal with attachments).
  1471     * Removed 'test' action. If you like to run unit tests, use py.test.
  1472     * Removed Login macro.
  1474   Bug Fixes: =================================================================
  1475     * Better handling of ImportErrors (farmconfig, macros, wikiserverconfig).
  1476     * Fix failure of detection of on-disk cache updates.
  1477     * Fix traceback in on Mac OS X when "import Carbon" fails.
  1479     * AttachFile action / file up- and download / zip support:
  1480       * WSGI: use wsgi.file_wrapper (or a builtin simple wrapper). Fixes memory
  1481         consumption for sending of large file attachments.
  1482       * FastCGI: flush often. Fixes memory consumption for sending of large
  1483         file attachments.
  1484       * Use the open temporary file for receiving file attachment uploads
  1485         (fixes big memory consumption for large file uploads).
  1486       * Catch runtime errors raised by zipfile stdlib modules when trying to
  1487         process a defective zip.
  1488       * When unzipping member files, decode their filenames from utf-8 and
  1489         replace invalid chars.
  1490       * Make error msg less confusing when trying to overwrite a file attachment
  1491         without having 'delete' rights.
  1493     * HINT: page_*_regex processing had to be changed to fix category search.
  1494       If you don't use the builtin (english) defaults, you will have to change
  1495       your configuration:
  1496         old (default): page_category_regex = u'^Category[A-Z]'
  1497         new (default): page_category_regex = ur'(?P<all>Category(?P<key>\S+))'
  1498       As you see, the old regex did work for detecting whether a pagename is
  1499       a category, but it could not be used to search for a category tag in the
  1500       page text. The new regex can be used for both and identifies the complete
  1501       category tag (match in group 'all', e.g. "CategoryFoo") as well as the
  1502       category key (match in group 'key', e.g. "Foo") by using named regex
  1503       groups. \S+ means the category key can be anything non-blank.
  1504       If you like to simultaneously support multiple languages, use something
  1505       like this: ur'(?P<all>(Kategorie|Category)(?P<key>\S+))'
  1506       HINT: after changing your configuration, please rebuild the cache:
  1507         * stop moin
  1508         * moin ... maint cleancache
  1509         * start moin
  1510       If you don't do this, your groups / dicts will stop working (and also
  1511       your ACLs that use those groups). You better do a test whether it works.
  1513     * Xapian search / indexing / stemming:
  1514       * Use text/<format> as mimetype for pages.
  1515       * Index also major and minor for mimetypes, so it will find 'text' or
  1516         'plain' as well as 'text/plain'
  1517       * Fix searching for negative terms.
  1518       * Improve result list ordering.
  1519       * Index filters: redirect stderr to logging system.
  1520       * Remove crappy num regex from WikiAnalyzer, improve tokenization.
  1521       * Fix AttributeError that happened when trying to access an attribute only
  1522         used with xapian search (but regex search is not done by xapian)
  1523       * Fix IndexErrors happening when pages are renamed/nuked after the index
  1524         was built.
  1525       * Fixed indexing of WikiWords (index "WikiWords", "Wiki" and "Words").
  1526       * Fix crash if default language is un-stemmable.
  1527       * xapian_stemming: removed some strange code (fixes search
  1528         title:lowercaseword with xapian_stemming enabled)
  1529       * Fixed category indexing (index CategoryFoo correctly as CategoryFoo, not
  1530         Foo - for all languages, see page_*_regex change above).
  1531     * Builtin search: support mimetype: search for pages for the builtin search
  1532       engine (using text/<format>).
  1534     * Parser fixes:
  1535       * Wiki: fix subscript parsing (was broken for cases like 'a,,1,2,,').
  1536       * Docbook: fixed detection of WikiWords.
  1537       * All: Add ssh protocol to url_schemas for ssh:... URLs.
  1539     * XMLRPC:
  1540       * Fix xmlrpc call to use content-length, if available,
  1541         fixes hangs with wsgiref server.
  1542       * Wiki xmlrpc getPageInfoVersion() fixed:
  1543         * works correctly now for old page versions (was unsupported)
  1544         * works correctly now for current page version (reported wrong
  1545           data when a page had attachment uploads after the last page
  1546           edit)
  1547         * returns a Fault if it did not find a edit-log entry
  1549   Other Changes: =============================================================
  1550     * Using better ACLs and comments on system/help pages now, just taking
  1551       away 'write' permission, but using default ACLs for everything else.
  1552     * HINT: If you want to use xapian based indexed search, you need to have
  1553       Xapian >= 1.0.0 (and you can remove PyStemmer in case you have installed
  1554       it just for moin - we now use the stemmer built into Xapian as it
  1555       supports utf-8 since 1.0.0).
  1556     * Changed default value of cfg.search_results_per_page to 25.
  1557     * Surge Protection: If a user is authenticated by a trusted authentication
  1558       (see also cfg.auth_methods_trusted) then he/she won't trigger surge
  1559       protection, but moin will just log a INFO level log msg with the user's
  1560       name so you can find the culprit in case he/she is overusing ressources.
  1561     * HINT: Added MyPages and CopyPage to actions_excluded because MyPages
  1562       doesn't work without special SecurityPolicy anyway and CopyPage has
  1563       questionable behaviour.
  1564     * Load action now just creates a new revision of the target page, the
  1565       target pagename defaults to the current page name and can be edited.
  1566       If the target pagename is empty, moin tries to derive the target pagename
  1567       from the uploaded file's name.
  1568       Load tries to decode the file contents first using utf-8 coding and, if
  1569       that fails, it forces decoding using iso-8859-1 coding (and replacing
  1570       invalid characters).
  1571     * HINT: cfg.show_login is gone, see code in theme/, this may
  1572       affect many themes!
  1573     * HINT: a new userprefs/ plugin directory will be created by the usual
  1574       "moin migration data" command.
  1575     * DocBook-formatter:
  1576       * generates a valid DOCTYPE
  1577       * table support has been improved
  1578       * handling of definitions and glossaries is more robust
  1579       * supports program language and line numbering in code areas
  1580     * HINT: ldap_login behaves a bit different now:
  1581       In previous moin versions, ldap_login tended to either successfully
  1582       authenticate a user or to completely cancel the whole login process in
  1583       any other case (including ldap server down or exceptions happening).
  1584       This made subsequent auth list entries rather pointless.
  1585       Now it behaves like this:
  1586         * user not found in LDAP -> give subsequent auth list entries a
  1587           chance to authenticate the user (same happens if it finds multiple
  1588           LDAP entries when searching - it logs an additional warning then).
  1589         * user found, but wrong password -> cancel login
  1590         * ldap server not reachable or other exceptions -> give subsequent
  1591           auth list entries a chance
  1592       So please make sure that you really trust every auth list entry you have
  1593       configured when upgrading or it might maybe change behaviour in a
  1594       unexpected or unwanted way.
  1595     * ldap_login now supports failover: if it can't contact your LDAP server
  1596       (e.g. because it is down or unreachable), it will just continue and
  1597       try to authenticate with other authenticators (if there are any in
  1598       cfg.auth list). So if you have some mirroring LDAP backup server, just
  1599       put another authenticator querying it there:
  1600           ldap_auth1 = LDAPAuth(server_uri='ldap://mainserver', ...)
  1601           ldap_auth2 = LDAPAuth(server_uri='ldap://backupserver', ...)
  1602           auth = [ldap_auth1, ldap_auth2, ]
  1604   Developer notes: ===========================================================
  1605     * Page.last_edit() is DEPRECATED, please use Page.edit_info().
  1606     * Page._last_edited() is GONE (was broken anyway), please use
  1607       Page.editlog_entry().
  1608     * New request.send_file() call, making it possible to use server-specific
  1609       optimizations.
  1610     * getText's (aka _()) 'formatted' keyword param (default: True in 1.6 and
  1611       early 1.7) was renamed/changed: it is now called 'wiki' and defaults to
  1612       False. Example calls:
  1613       _('This will NOT get parsed/formatted by MoinMoin!')
  1614       _('This will be parsed/formatted by MoinMoin!', wiki=True)
  1615       _('This will be used as a left side of percent operator. %s',
  1616         wiki=True, percent=True)
  1617     * Page.url 'relative' keyword param (default: True in 1.6 and early 1.7)
  1618       was changed to default False).
  1619     * The themedict no longer contains 'page_user_prefs' and 'user_prefs',
  1620       this may affect custom themes.
  1621     * The rst-parser's admonition class names are no longer prepended with
  1622       "admonition_". Instead the class names are now for example "note"
  1623       and not "admonition_note".
  1626 Version 1.6.3:
  1627   Fixes:
  1628     * Security fix: a check in the user form processing was not working as
  1629       expected, leading to a major ACL and superuser priviledge escalation
  1630       problem. If you use ACL entries other than "Known:" or "All:" and/or
  1631       a non-empty superuser list, you need to urgently install this upgrade.
  1632     * Security fix: if acl_hierarchic=True was used (False is the default),
  1633       ACL processing was wrong for some cases, see
  1634       MoinMoinBugs/AclHierarchicPageAclSupercededByAclRightsAfter
  1635     * For {{transclusion_targets}} we checked the protocol to be http(s),
  1636       this check was removed (because file: and ftp: should work also) and
  1637       it's not moin's problem if the user uses silly protocols that can't
  1638       work for that purpose.
  1639     * Fixed TableOfContents macro for included pages.
  1640     * server_fastcgi: added Config.port = None. If you want to use some port
  1641       (not a fd), you can set it now in your Config, e.g. port = 8888.
  1642     * category: search matches categories even if there are comment lines
  1643       between the horizontal rule and the real categories, e.g.:
  1644       ... some page text ...
  1645       ----
  1646       ## optionally some comments, e.g. about possible categories:
  1647       ## CategoryJustACommentNotFound
  1648       CategoryTheRealAndOnly
  1650       Note: there might be multiple comment lines, but all real categories
  1651             must be on a single line either directly below the ---- or
  1652             directly below some comment lines.
  1654   Other changes:
  1655     * Added 'notes' to config.url_schemas, so you can use notes://notessrv/...
  1656       to invoke your Lotus Notes client.
  1657     * After creating a new user profile via UserPreferences, you are logged
  1658       in with that user (no need to immediately enter the same name/password
  1659       again for logging in).
  1662 Version 1.6.2:
  1663   Fixes:
  1664     * Security fix: check the ACL of the included page for the rst parser's
  1665       include directive.
  1666     * Potential security/DOS fix: we removed cracklib / python-crack support
  1667       in password_checker as it is not thread-safe and caused segmentation
  1668       faults (leading to server error 500 because the moin process died).
  1669     * Fix moin_session code for auth methods other than moin_login (e.g. http).
  1670       If you have worked around this using moin_anon_session, you can remove
  1671       this workaround now (except if you want anon sessions for other reasons).
  1672     * Fix moin_session code to delete invalid session cookies and also create
  1673       a new session cookie if it got a valid user_obj at the same time.
  1674     * Fix xmlrpc applyAuthToken: give good error msg for empty token.
  1675     * Fixed category search, use category:CategoryFoo as search term.
  1676     * xapian_stemming = False (changed default) to workaround some problems
  1677       in the code enabled by it. Fixes the problems when searching for
  1678       lowercase or numeric titles or word fragments with the builtin search.
  1679     * Fix trail for anon users without a session, do not show a single page.
  1680     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/WikiSyncComplainsAboutTooOldMoin.
  1681     * Wiki parser: fixed strange insertion of unwanted paragraphs.
  1682     * Wiki parser: fix interwiki linking:
  1683       Free interwiki links did not change since 1.5 (they still require to match
  1684       [A-Z][A-Za-z]+ for the wikiname part, i.e. a ASCII word beginning with an
  1685       uppercase letter).
  1686       Bracketed interwiki links now behave similar to how they worked in 1.5:
  1687       Moin just splits off the part left of the colon - no matter how it looks
  1688       like. It then tries to find that in the interwiki map. If it is found,
  1689       a interwiki link gets rendered. If it is not found, moin will render a
  1690       link to a local wiki page (that has a colon in the pagename). It will
  1691       also render a local wiki page link if there is no colon at all, of course.
  1692       Examples:
  1693       [[lowercasewikiname:somepage]] does an interwiki link (if in the map).
  1694       [[ABC:n]] does a local link to page ABC:n (if ABC is NOT in the map).
  1695     * Wiki parser: fix interwiki linking for the case that there are query args
  1696       in the interwiki map entry and you give additional query args via link
  1697       markup (uses correct query arg separator now), e.g.:
  1698       [[Google:searchterm|search this|&foo=bar]]
  1699     * Creole parser: fixed bug that prevents images inside links.
  1700     * Python parser: catch indentation error.
  1701     * PageEditor: fixed copyPage for write restricted pages.
  1702     * GUI editor: fixed javascript error with too complex word_rule regex,
  1703       see MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorSyntaxError.
  1704     * Fixed FCKeditor dialog boxes for FireFox3.
  1705     * NewPage macro/newpage action: fixed for non-ascii template pagenames.
  1706     * FootNote macro: Fix MoinMoinBugs/FootNoteNumbering.
  1707     * EmbedObject macro: bug fix for image mimetype
  1708     * WSGI:
  1709       * fix TWikiDraw saving a drawing by also evaluating the query args.
  1710       * work around unpythonic WSGI 1.0 read() API, fixing broken xmlrpc
  1711         putPage with mod_wsgi
  1712     * Fix highlighting (see MoinMoinBugs/SearchForPagesWithComments).
  1713     * Fix logfile code for EACCESS errors.
  1714     * Removed the "logging initialized" log messages because it was issued once
  1715       per request for CGI.
  1717   Other changes:
  1718     * Show "Comments" toggling link in edit bar only if the page really
  1719       contains comments.
  1720     * Made default configuration of surge protection a bit more forgiving,
  1721       especially for edit action which is currently also used for previews.
  1722     * Updated i18n, system/help pages, added Macedonian system text translation.
  1723     * Improved moin xmlrpc write command's builtin docs and auto-append
  1724       ?action=xmlrpc2 to the target wiki url given.
  1727 Version 1.6.1:
  1728   New features:
  1729     * Improved params for [[target|label|params]]:
  1730       Added accesskey link tag attribute, e.g.: [[target|label|accesskey=1]].
  1731       Additionally to specifying link tag attributes (like class=foo), you can
  1732       now also specify &key=value for getting that into the query string of
  1733       the link URL.
  1734       The "&" character is important, don't forget it or it won't get into the
  1735       query string!
  1736       E.g. for an attachment, you can use:
  1737       [[attachment:foo.pdf|Direct download of foo.pdf|&do=get]]
  1738       E.g. for linking to some specific diff, you can use:
  1739       [[SomePage|see that diff|&action=diff,&rev1=23,&rev2=42]]
  1740       See also the updated HelpOnLinking page!
  1741     * AdvancedSearch: make multipe categories/languages/mimetype selections possible
  1742     * Added a configuration directive to only do one bind to the LDAP server.
  1743       This is useful if you bind as the user the first time.
  1744       ldap_bindonce = False # default
  1746   Fixes:
  1747     * Fix XSS issue in login action.
  1748     * Fix wrong pagename when creating new pages on Mac OS X - that was a big
  1749       showstopper for moin 1.6.0 on Mac OS X.
  1750     * Fixed 1.6 migration script:
  1751       Make sorting python 2.3 compatible.
  1752       Just skip corrupted event log lines.
  1753       Fix link conversion by using data.pre160 as data_dir.
  1754       Fix bad /InterWiki pagenames when encountering interwiki links with bad
  1755       wiki names.
  1756       Improve ImageLink conversion by using its argument parser code.
  1757       Added STONEAGE_IMAGELINK (default: False) switch to wiki markup converter,
  1758       toggle it if you had a very old ImageLink macro in production and the
  1759       converter output has target and image interchanged.
  1760       Fixed UnicodeDecodeError for wrongly encoded attachment filenames.
  1761     * Wiki parser:
  1762       Fix parsing of link/transclusion description and params.
  1763       Fix relative attachment targets.
  1764       Fix supported URL schemes (some got lost since 1.5.8).
  1765       Showing an upload link for non-existing non-text/non-image transclusions
  1766       now (like e.g. *.pdf).
  1767     * RST parser: fix attachment: and drawing: processing
  1768     * Fix quickhelp when editing RST markup pages.
  1769     * Fix Despam action: editor grouping was broken, increase time interval
  1770       to 30 days.
  1771     * Fix AdvancedSearch domain:system search crashing.
  1772     * Only switch off xapian search if we didn't use it because of missing index.
  1773     * Fix saving twikidraw drawings by removing 'java' from spider regex.
  1774     * Fix classic theme's unsubscribe icon's action link.
  1775     * Fix AttachFile action: don't show unzip for packages, only show install
  1776       for superuser.
  1777     * Fix "su user" troubles on UserPreferences.
  1778     * Removed unit tests from ?action=test (due to changes in our test
  1779       environment, using py.test now, this was broken).
  1780     * Duplicated the top directories' to wiki/server/ so it gets
  1781       installed by
  1782     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6.0LanguageIgnoreBrowserConfigurationError
  1783     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/MoveAttachmentNotWorkingWithModPython
  1784     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/1.6.0SupplementationAndAccessRights
  1785     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/RenamingUserAllowsOldUsernameToLogin
  1786     * Fix MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorExcelPasteExpatErrorUnboundPrefix
  1788   Other changes:
  1789     * I18n texts, system and help pages updated, please update your underlay
  1790       directory (see wiki/underlay/...).
  1791     * Improved "moin" script help, invoke it with "moin ... package command --help".
  1792     * Added some .ext -> mimetype mappings missing on some systems (like Mac OS X).
  1793     * Removed ImageLink macro, as this can be easily done with moin wiki link
  1794       syntax now - see HelpOnMacros/ImageLink (the 1.6 migration scripts convert
  1795       all ImageLink calls to moin wiki link syntax).
  1796     * Updated EmbedObject macro.
  1799 Version 1.6.0:
  1800  * This is a reduced CHANGES, ommitting details from rc/beta test and also
  1801    less interesting minor changes and fixes. If you want to see full detail,
  1802    read it there:
  1804    It took MoinMoin development a lot of work and time to implement all the new
  1805    and fixed stuff, so please, before asking for support:
  1806    * take the time to read all the stuff below
  1807    * read the new help pages (copy them from wiki/underlay/ directory)
  1809  * HINT: If you are upgrading from a older moin version and want to keep your
  1810    existing data directory, it is essential that you read and follow
  1811    README.migration because the wiki markup and user profiles changed significantly.
  1812    See also more HINTs below...
  1814   New features: ==============================================================
  1816   User interface: ------------------------------------------------------------
  1817     * Removed "underscore in URL" == "blank in pagename magic" - it made more
  1818       trouble than it was worth. If you still want to have a _ in URL, just
  1819       put a _ into pagename.
  1820     * Discussion pages, see FeatureRequests/DiscussionAndOrCommentPages.
  1821     * cfg.password_checker (default: use some simple builtin checks for too
  1822       easy passwords and, if available, python-crack).
  1823       Use password_checker = None to disable password checking.
  1824     * We now have a drafts functionality (no */MoinEditorBackup pages any
  1825       more):
  1826       * If you edit a page and cancel the edit, use preview or save, a draft
  1827         copy gets saved for you to a internal cache area (data/cache/drafts/).
  1828       * If it is a save what you did and it succeeds, the draft copy gets
  1829         killed right afterwards.
  1830       * If you accidentally used cancel or your browser or machine crashes
  1831         after you used preview, then just visit that page again and edit it.
  1832         the editor will notify you that there is a draft of this page and you
  1833         will see a "Load draft" button. Click on it to load the draft into the
  1834         editor and save the page.
  1835       * The draft storage is per user and per page, but only one draft per page.
  1836     * cfg.quicklinks_default and cfg.subscribed_pages_default can be used to
  1837       preload new user profiles with configurable values.
  1838     * attachment links for non-existing attachments look different now:
  1839       the note about the non-existing attachment moved to the link title,
  1840       the link is shown with nonexistent class (grey).
  1841     * attachment embeddings for non-existing attachments show a grey clip
  1842     * The list of InterWiki sites is editable in the wiki (page InterWikiMap),
  1843       it is getting reloaded every minute.
  1844     * We support some new languages and also have new underlay pages, thanks
  1845       to all translators and people helping with the docs!
  1847   Actions: -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1848     * Synchronisation of wikis using the SyncPages action.
  1849     * Xapian (see based indexed search code.
  1850       To use this:
  1851       * Install xapian-core and xapian-bindings on your machine.
  1852         We used 0.9.4, but newer code should hopefully work, too.
  1853       * cfg.xapian_search = True
  1854       * Execute this to build the index:
  1855         $ moin ... index build   # indexes pages and attachments
  1856         $ moin ... index build --files=files.lst  # same plus a list of files
  1857         You should run those commands as the same user you use for your wiki,
  1858         usually this is the webserver userid, e.g.:
  1859         $ sudo -u www-data moin --config=... \
  1860                index build --files=files.lst
  1861     * New searches:
  1862         - LanguageSearch: language:de
  1863         - CategorySearch: category:Homepage
  1864         - MimetypeSearch: mimetype:image/png (for attachments/files)
  1865         - DomainSearch: domain:underlay or domain:standard
  1866         - History Search: available in advanced ui
  1867       Note: Some currently only available when Xapian is used.
  1868     * New config options and their defaults:
  1869         xapian_search        False  enables xapian-powered search
  1870         xapian_index_dir     None   directory for xapian indices
  1871                                     (can be shared for wiki farms)
  1872         xapian_stemming      True   toggles usage of stemmer, fallback
  1873                                     to False if no stemmer installed
  1874         search_results_per_page 10  determines how many hits should be
  1875                                     shown on a fullsearch action
  1876         xapian_index_history False  indexes all revisions of pages to
  1877                                     allow searching in their history
  1878     * Speeded up linkto search by avoiding read locks on the pagelinks file.
  1880     * The action menu now calls the actions for the revision of the page you
  1881       are currently viewing. If you are viewing the current page revision, you
  1882       get the same behaviour as in moin 1.5, but if you are viewing an old
  1883       page revision, action "raw" will now show you the raw text of this OLD
  1884       revision (not of the current revision as moin 1.5 did it).
  1885       Note that not every action does evaluate the rev=XX parameter it gets.
  1886       Also please note that the edit, info, ... links in the editbar do NOT
  1887       use the rev parameter, but operate on the latest page revision (as
  1888       they did in moin 1.5).
  1889     * Info action lost the links for "raw", "print" and "revert" actions,
  1890       because you can now just view an old revision and select those actions
  1891       from the menu there.
  1893     * ?action=sitemap emits a google sitemap (XML), listing all your wiki pages
  1894       and the wiki root URL.
  1895       Page                      Priority / Frequency / Last modification
  1896       --------------------------------------------------------------------
  1897       /                         1.0 / hourly / <now>
  1898       cfg.page_front_page       1.0 / hourly / page last edit
  1899       TitleIndex,RecentChanges  0.9 / hourly / <now>
  1900       content pages             0.5 / daily / page last edit
  1901       system/help pages         0.1 / yearly / page last edit
  1903     * Action DeletePage and RenamePage can now be used for subpages of a page, too.
  1904     * Added Action CopyPage so you can use now an existing page or page hierarchy
  1905       as template for a new page, see FeatureRequests/CloneOrCopyPages.
  1906     * "Package Pages" action supports attachments now.
  1907     * Added SisterPages support:
  1908       * action=sisterpages will generate a list of url pagename lines for all
  1909         pages in your moin wiki.
  1910       * action=pollsistersites will poll all sister sites listed in
  1911         cfg.sistersites = [(wikiname, fetchURL), ...]
  1912         The fetch URL for the sistersites depends on the wiki engine, e.g.:
  1913         # moin based wiki:
  1914         ('MoinExample', '')
  1915         # oddmuse based wiki:
  1916         ('EmacsWiki', '')
  1917         # JspWiki based wiki:
  1918         ('JspWiki', '')
  1919       * If the current page exists on some sister wiki, a link to it will be
  1920         added to the navibar.
  1921       You can use sister wikis for adding another dimension to your wiki UI: use
  1922       it for simple multi language support, or for comments, or anything else
  1923       "related" you need.
  1924       TODO: add sistersites_force with sister sites we link to even if they do not
  1925             have the page yet (will work only for moin as we don't know
  1926             pagename>url transformation of other wikis)
  1927     * showtags action that lists all tags related to a page.
  1928     * action=view does use mimetypes of EmbedObject too and text files will be shown
  1929       by using their colorized parsers
  1931   Macros: --------------------------------------------------------------------
  1932     * RecentChanges:
  1933       * If a change has happened after your bookmark, the updated/new/renamed
  1934         icon links to the bookmark diff.
  1935       * If a page does not exist any more (because it was deleted or renamed),
  1936         we link the deleted icon to the diff showing what was deleted (for the
  1937         delete action). For the rename action, we just show the deleted icon.
  1938     * Conflict icon in RecentChanges is shown if a edit conflict is detected.
  1939     * Enhanced SystemAdmin's user browser, so a SuperUser can enable/disable
  1940       users from there.
  1941     * Included EmbedObject macro for embedding different major mimetypes:
  1942       application, audio, image, video, chemical, x-world. 
  1943       You are able to change the defaults of allowed mimetypes in the config
  1944       var mimetypes_embed. The config var mimetypes_xss_protect is used to deny
  1945       mimetypes. The order of both variables is Allow, Deny (mimetypes_embed,
  1946       mimetypes_xss_protect).
  1947     * Added support for @SELF to the NewPage macro.
  1948     * GetText2 macro that allows to translate messages that contain data.
  1949     * Make the FootNote macro filter duplicates and display a list of numbers
  1950       instead of a list of identical footnotes. Thanks to Johannes Berg for the
  1951       patch.
  1953   Parsers: -------------------------------------------------------------------
  1954     * Moin Wiki parser: Changed markup for links, images and macros, see these
  1955       wiki pages: HelpOnLinking, HelpOnMacros
  1956     * New wiki markup for /* inline comments */ - they get rendered as a span
  1957       with class="comment", see next item:
  1958     * There is a new item in the edit bar: "Comments". If you click it, the
  1959       visibility of all class "comment" tags will be toggled. There is a user
  1960       preferences item "show_comments" to set if the default view shows them or not.
  1961     * The wiki parser can be used with css classes now:
  1962       {{{#!wiki comment
  1963       This will render output within a div with class "comment".
  1964       You can use any wiki markup as usual.
  1965       }}}
  1966       You can also combine multiple css classes like this:
  1967       {{{#!wiki red/dotted/comment
  1968       This will render a red background, dotted border comment section.
  1969       }}}
  1970       The same thing will work for any other css classes you have.
  1971       If the css classes contain the word "comment", they will trigger some
  1972       special feature, see next item:
  1973     * Wiki nested parser/pre sections work now, using this syntax:
  1974       a) just use more curly braces if you have 3 closing in your content:
  1975          {{{{
  1976          }}} <- does not terminate the section!
  1977          }}}}
  1978       b) use {{{ + some magic string:
  1979          {{{somemagicstring
  1980          }}} <- does not terminate the section!
  1981          somemagicstring}}}
  1982       c) {{{whatever#!python
  1983          # py code
  1984          whatever}}}
  1985       Pitfall: stuff like below does not work as it did in 1.5:
  1986          {{{aaa
  1987          bbb}}}
  1988       Solution:
  1989          {{{
  1990          aaa
  1991          bbb
  1992          }}}
  1993     * Added support for ircs: URLs (secure IRC).
  1994     * New text/creole parser that allows you to use WikiCreole 1.0 markup,
  1995       use #format creole.
  1996     * HTML parser (called "html") that allows you to use HTML on the page.
  1997       Thanks to the trac team for the nice code.
  1998     * Added the diff parser from ParserMarket, thanks to Emilio Lopes, Fabien
  1999       Ninoles and Juergen Hermann.
  2001   XMLRPC: --------------------------------------------------------------------
  2002     * actions_excluded now defaults to ['xmlrpc'] - this kind of disables the
  2003       built-in wiki xmlrpc server code (not completely: it will just answer
  2004       with a Fault instance for any request). If you want to use xmlrpc v1 or
  2005       v2, you have to remove 'xmlrpc' from the actions_excluded list (for
  2006       example if you want to use wikisync, mailimport or any other feature
  2007       using xmlrpc). If you enable xmlrpc, it will be possible that someone
  2008       changes your wiki content by using xmlrpc (it will of course honour ACLs).
  2009     * New XMLRPC methods (see doc strings for details):
  2010       * getMoinVersion
  2011       * system.multicall -- multicall support
  2012       * Authentication System: getAuthToken/appyAuthToken
  2013       * getDiff -- method to get binary diffs
  2014       * mergeDiff -- method to local changes remotely
  2015       * interwikiName -- method to get the IWID and the interwiki moniker
  2016       * getAllPagesEx -- method to get the pagelist in a special way (revnos,
  2017         no system pages etc.)
  2018       * getAuthToken -- make and authentication token by supplying username/password
  2019       * applyAuthToken -- set request.user for following xmlrpc calls (within the
  2020                           same multicall)
  2021       * getUserProfile -- method to get user profile data for request.user
  2022     * Added XMLRPC methods for attachment handling. Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2023     * XMLRPC putPage method adjusted to new AuthToken, config vars 
  2024       xmlrpc_putpage_enabled and xmlrpc_putpage_trusted_only removed.
  2026   Scripts / Commandline interface: -------------------------------------------
  2027     * moin export dump now better conforms to the theme guidelines.
  2028     * Added a --dump-user option to the moin export dump command.
  2029       Thanks to Oliver O'Halloran.
  2031   Security / Auth / AntiSpam / etc.: -----------------------------------------
  2032     * Hierarchical ACLs are now supported, i.e. pages inheriting permissions
  2033       from higher-level pages. See HelpOnAccessControlLists.
  2034     * If you have "#acl" (without the quotes) on a page, this means now:
  2035       "this page has own (empty) ACLs, so do not use acl_rights_default here"
  2036       Please note that this is COMPLETELY DIFFERENT from having no ACL line at
  2037       all on the page (acl_rights_default is used in that case).
  2038     * Antispam master url is now configurable via cfg.antispam_master_url.
  2039       The default is to fetch the antispam patterns from MoinMaster wiki.
  2040     * Antispam now checks the edit comments against BadContent also.
  2041     * TextCHAs (text-form CAPTCHAs).
  2042       Due to increasingly annoying wiki spammers, we added the option to use
  2043       TextCHAs (for page save (not for preview!), for attachment upload, for
  2044       user creation (not for profile save)).
  2045       This function is disabled by default. If you run a wiki that is editable
  2046       by anonymous or non-approved users from the internet (i.e. All: or Known:
  2047       in ACL terms), you should enable it in your wiki config by:
  2048       textchas = { # DO NOT USE EXACTLY THESE QUESTIONS!!!
  2049           'en': {
  2050               u'H2O is ...': u'water', # bad: too common
  2051               u'2 apples and three bananas makes how many fruits?': ur'(five|5)', # good
  2052               u'2 apples and three pigs makes how many fruits?': ur'(two|2)', # good
  2053               u'2+3': ur'5', # bad: computable
  2054               u'
  2055           },
  2056           'de': { # for german users
  2057               u'H2O ist ...': u'wasser',
  2058           },
  2059       }
  2060       This means that english users will get some random question from the 'en'
  2061       set, german users will get some from the 'de' set. If there is no 'de'
  2062       set configured, moin will fallback to language_default and then to 'en',
  2063       so make sure that you at least have a 'en' set configured (or whatever
  2064       you have set as language_default).
  2065       You need to use unicode for the questions and answers (see that u"...").
  2066       For the answer, you need to give a regular expression:
  2067       * In the easiest case, this is just some word or sentence (first en
  2068         example). It will be matched in a case-insensitive way.
  2069       * For more complex stuff, you can use the power of regular expressions,
  2070         e.g. if multiple answers are correct (second en example). Any answer
  2071         matching the regular expression will be considered as correct, any
  2072         non-matching answer will be considered as incorrect.
  2074       Tipps for making it hard to break for the spammers and easy for the users:
  2075       * Use site-specific (not too common) questions.
  2076       * Don't use too hard questions (annoys legitimate users).
  2077       * Don't use computable questions.
  2078       * Don't reuse textchas from other sites.
  2080       textchas_disabled_group = None # (default)
  2081       Set this to some group name and noone in this group will get textchas.
  2082       E.g.: textchas_disabled_group = u'NoTextChasGroup'
  2084     * The login page gives now the possibility to recover a lost password, thanks to 
  2085       Oliver Siemoneit. This is especially useful for wikis where access to user 
  2086       preferences is restricted by acl.
  2087     * Session handling for logged-in users and (not by default due to expiry
  2088       problems) anonymous users.
  2089     * Updated the ldap_login code from 1.5 branch, supports TLS now.
  2090       See MoinMoin/config/ for supported configuration options
  2091       and their defaults (and please just change what you need to change,
  2092       in your wikiconfig).
  2093     * Interwiki auth: You need to define cfg.trusted_wikis and
  2094        cfg.user_autocreate to use it. Logging in works by entering:
  2095       Name: RemoteWikiName RemoteUserName
  2096       Password: remotepass
  2097       Then moin contacts RemoteWikiName after looking it up in the interwiki
  2098       map and tries to authenticate there using RemoteUserName and remotepass.
  2099       If it succeeds, the remote wiki will return the remote user profile items
  2100       and your local moin will autocreate an account with these values.
  2102   Server / Network / Logging: ------------------------------------------------
  2103     * The standalone server script moved to the toplevel directory. This makes
  2104       it possible to directly start without additional configuration
  2105       to run a MoinMoin DesktopEdition like wiki setup.
  2106       Be careful: DesktopEdition uses relaxed security settings only suitable
  2107       for personal and local use.
  2108     * Added TLS/SSL support to the standalone server. Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2109       To use TLS/SSL support you must also install the TLSLite library
  2110       ( Version 0.3.8 was used for development and
  2111       testing.
  2113     * cfg.log_reverse_dns_lookups [default: True] - you can set this to False
  2114       if rev. dns lookups are broken in your network (leading to long delays
  2115       on page saves). With False, edit-log will only contain IP, not hostname.
  2116     * Added support for "304 not modified" response header for AttachFile get
  2117       and rss_rc actions - faster, less traffic, less load.
  2119     * Added logging framework, using stdlib's "logging" module. Just do
  2120       import logging ; logging.debug("your text"). Depending on configuration
  2121       in the server Config class, your stuff will be written to screen (stderr),
  2122       to a moin logfile, to apache's error.log, etc.:
  2123       logPath = None # 'moin.log'
  2124       loglevel_file = None # logging.DEBUG/INFO/WARNING/ERROR/CRITICAL
  2125       loglevel_stderr = None # logging.DEBUG/INFO/WARNING/ERROR/CRITICAL
  2126       NOTE: this is NOT in wikiconfig, but e.g. in moin.cgi or or ...
  2128     * Added some experimental and disabled code, that uses x-forwarded-for
  2129       header (if present) to get the right "outside" IP before a request
  2130       enters our chain of trusted (reverse) proxies.
  2131       This code has the problem that we can't configure it in wikiconfig, so
  2132       if you want to use it / test it, you have to edit the moin code:
  2133       MoinMoin/request/ - edit proxies_trusted (near the top).
  2134       We will try to make this easier to configure, but there was no time left
  2135       before 1.6.0 release for doing bigger code refactorings needed for that.
  2137   Mail: ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  2138     * You can send email to the wiki now (requires xmlrpc), see:
  2139       FeatureRequests/WikiEmailIntegration, HelpOnConfiguration/EmailSupport
  2141     * Mail notifications contain a link to the diff action so the user
  2142       can see the coloured difference more easily. Thanks to Tobias Polzin.
  2144   Other changes: =============================================================
  2145     * HINT: please copy a new version of your server script from the wiki/server/
  2146       directory and edit it to match your setup.
  2147     * HINT: instead of "from MoinMoin.multiconfig import DefaultConfig" you
  2148       need to use "from MoinMoin.config.multiconfig import DefaultConfig" now.
  2149       You need to change this in your or file.
  2150       See MoinMoin/ for an alternative way if you can't do that.
  2151     * HINT: you need to change some imports (if you have them in your config):
  2152       Old: from MoinMoin.util.antispam import SecurityPolicy
  2153       New: from import SecurityPolicy
  2154       Old: from MoinMoin.util.autoadmin import SecurityPolicy
  2155       New: from import SecurityPolicy
  2156     * HINT: you need to change your auth stuff, the new way is:
  2157       from MoinMoin.auth import moin_login, moin_session
  2158       from MoinMoin.auth.http import http
  2159       auth = [http, moin_login, moin_session]
  2160       Do it in a similar way for other auth methods.
  2161     * HINT: you need to change your url_prefix setting in 2 ways:
  2162       1. The setting is now called url_prefix_static (to make it more clear
  2163          that we mean the static stuff, not the wiki script url).
  2164       2. The strongly recommended (and default) value of it is '/moin_static160'
  2165          for moin version 1.6.0 (and will be ...161 for moin 1.6.1). It is
  2166          possible and recommended to use a very long cache lifetime for static
  2167          stuff now (Expires: access plus 1 year), because we require to change
  2168          the URL of static stuff when the static stuff changes (e.g. on a
  2169          version upgrade of moin) to avoid problems with stale cache content.
  2170          Your moin will be faster with lower load and traffic because of this.
  2171          For standalone server, we use 1 year expiry for static stuff now.
  2172          For Apache, Lighttpd and other "external" servers, you have to care
  2173          for configuring them to use a long expiry and change url_prefix_static
  2174          related configuration on upgrade.
  2175       HINT: if you run standalone or Twisted server, the easiest way to get a
  2176             working configuration (with server configuration matching wiki
  2177             configuration) is to NOT set url_prefix_static at all. Moin will
  2178             use matching configuration defaults in this case.
  2179     * url_prefix_action ['action'] was introduced for lowering load and traffic
  2180       caused by searchengine crawlers. Up to now, crawlers where causing a high
  2181       load in internet moin wikis because they tried to get about everything,
  2182       including all actions linked from the user interface.
  2183       Known crawlers only get 403 for most actions, but nevertheless they first
  2184       tried. There was no means keeping them away from actions due to the rather
  2185       braindead robots.txt standard. You can only disallow pathes there, but
  2186       moin's actions were querystring based, not path based (this would need
  2187       regex support in robots.txt, but there is no such thing).
  2188       This changed now. Moin is able to generate action URLs you can handle in
  2189       robots.txt, like /action/info/PageName?action=info. So if you don't want
  2190       bots triggering actions, just disallow /action/ there. Keep in mind that
  2191       attachments are handled by /action/AttachFile, so if you want attached
  2192       files and pictures indexed by search engine, don't disallow
  2193       /action/AttachFile/ in your robots.txt. In order to use this feature,
  2194       set url_prefix_action in your wikiconfig to e.g. "action".
  2195     * We use (again) the same browser compatibility check as FCKeditor uses
  2196       internally, too. So if GUI editor invocation is broken due to browser
  2197       compatibility issues or a wrong browser version check, please file a bug
  2198       at FCKeditor development or browser development.
  2199     * HINT: We removed Lupy based indexed search code. If you were brave enough
  2200       to use cfg.lupy_search, you maybe want to try cfg.xapian_search instead.
  2202   Developer notes: ===========================================================
  2203     * We moved the IE hacks to theme/css/msie.css that gets included after all
  2204       other css files (but before the user css file) using a conditional
  2205       comment with "if IE", so it gets only loaded for MSIE (no matter which
  2206       version). The file has some standard css inside (evaluated on all MSIE
  2207       versions) and some * html hacks that only IE < 7 will read.
  2208       HINT: if you use custom themes, you want to update them in the same way.
  2209     * autofilters for databrowser widget. Thanks to Johannes Berg for the patch.
  2210     * changed formatter.attachment_link call (it is now more flexible,
  2211       because you can render the stuff between link start and link end yourself)
  2212     * Page.url() does not escape any more. You have to use wikiutil.escape()
  2213       yourself if you want to write the URL to HTML and it contains e.g. &.
  2214     * The testing wikiconfig moved to tests/, the testing wiki
  2215       is now created in tests/wiki/...
  2216     * HINT: Killed "processors" (finally), formatter method changed to:
  2217       formatter.parser(parsername, lines)
  2218     * Refactored some actions to use ActionBase base class.
  2219     * Moved "test" action from wikiaction to MoinMoin/action/
  2220       (and use ActionBase).
  2221     * Moved MoinMoin/ to MoinMoin/config/
  2222     * Moved MoinMoin/ to MoinMoin/config/
  2223     * Moved "SystemInfo" macro from wikimacro to MoinMoin/macro/.
  2224     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/action/
  2225     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/macro/
  2226     * Moved stuff to MoinMoin/xmlrpc/
  2227     * Moved stuff to action/ (only used from there).
  2228     * Moved formatter/ to formatter/ (FormatterBase).
  2229     * Moved util/ to parser/
  2230     * Moved / splitted into MoinMoin/request/*.
  2231       Most stuff will be broken, please help fixing it (usually some imports
  2232       will be missing and the adaptor script will need a change maybe):
  2233       Tested successfully: CGI, CLI, STANDALONE, FCGI, TWISTED
  2234     * Moved to security/
  2235     * Moved to security/
  2236     * Moved logfile/ to logfile/
  2237     * Moved to mail/
  2238     * Moved util/ to mail/
  2239     * Moved to auth/
  2240       Moved util/ to auth/
  2241       teared auth code into single modules under auth/* - moin_session handling
  2242       and the builting moin_login method are in auth/
  2243     * Added wikiutil.MimeType class (works internally with sanitized mime
  2244       types because the official ones suck).
  2245     * Renamed parsers to module names representing sane mimetypes, e.g.:
  2246 -> parser.text_moin_wiki
  2247     * Added thread_monitor debugging aid. It can be activated using:
  2248       from MoinMoin.util import thread_monitor; thread_monitor.activate_hook()
  2249       and then triggered by requesting URL ...?action=thread_monitor - please
  2250       be aware that monitoring threads has a big performance impact on its own,
  2251       so you only want to temporarily enable this for debugging.
  2252       By default, it dumps its output to the data_dir as tm_<timestamp>.log,
  2253       you can change this at bottom of action/ if you want to
  2254       see output in your browser.
  2255     * Introduced scope parameter to CacheEntry() - if you specify 'farm', it
  2256       will cache into a common directory for all wikis in the same farm, if you
  2257       specify 'wiki', it will use a cache directory per wiki and if you specify
  2258       'item', it will use a cache directory per item (== per page).
  2259       Creating a CacheEntry without explicit scope is DEPRECATED.
  2260     * Smileys moved from MoinMoin.config to MoinMoin.theme.
  2261     * Removed all _ magic in URLs and filenames.
  2262     * request.action now has the action requested, default: 'show'.
  2263     * Cleaned up duplicated http_headers code and DEPRECATED this function
  2264       call (it was sometimes confused with setHttpHeaders call) - it will
  2265       vanish with moin 1.7, so please fix your custom plugins!
  2266       The replacement is:
  2267           request.emit_http_headers(more_headers=[])
  2268       This call pre-processes the headers list (encoding from unicode, making
  2269       sure that there is exactly ONE content-type header, etc.) and then
  2270       calls a server specific helper _emit_http_headers to emit it.
  2271       Tested successfully: CGI, STANDALONE, FCGI, TWISTED
  2272     * setResponseCode request method DEPRECATED (it only worked for Twisted
  2273       anyway), just use emit_http_headers and include a Status: XXX header.
  2274       Method will vanish with moin 1.7.
  2275     * cfg.url_prefix is DEPRECATED, please use cfg.url_prefix_static.
  2276     * d['title_link'] is not supported any more. You can easily make that link
  2277       on your own in your theme, see example in MoinMoin/theme/,
  2278       function "title".
  2279     * There is a new Page method called Page.get_raw_body_str that returns
  2280       the encoded page body. This is useful if you just deal with byte data
  2281       (e.g. while generating binary diffs).
  2282     * The TagStore/PickleTagStore system is used to store the syncronisation tags.
  2283     * XMLRPC functions may return Fault instances from now on
  2284     * Moin got multicall support, including a module that makes it usable on the
  2285       client-side without requiring Python 2.4
  2286     * Added no_magic to text_html formatter to disable tag autoclosing.
  2287     * MOIN_DEBUG can be set in the environment to let MoinMoin ignore exceptions
  2288       that would lead to a traceback in the browser. Thanks to Raphael Bossek.
  2289     * There is a new MoinMoin.Page.ItemCache class now with automatic cache
  2290       invalidation based on global edit-log. We currently use it to cache page
  2291       acls, speedup Page.get_rev and reading the page local edit-log.
  2292     * Added wikiutil.renderText parse and format raw wiki markup with all page elements.
  2293     * The user file format has changed, old files will be read correctly but
  2294       will silently be upgraded to the new format so old versions will not
  2295       read the new files correctly (this only affects 'subscribed_pages' and
  2296       'quicklinks' which will be lost when downgrading.)
  2299 Version 1.5.8:
  2300   New features:
  2301     * Added timing.log to help performance debugging. Use cfg.log_timing = True
  2302       to update <data_dir>/timing.log (default is False, meaning no logging).
  2304       Example log entries:
  2307       Timestamp       PID   Timing Flag action     URL
  2308       -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  2309       20070512 184401 22690 vvv         None
  2310       20070512 184401 22690 0.267s    - show
  2312       Timestamp: YYYYMMDD HHMMSS (UTC)
  2313       PID: the process ID of the moin process
  2314       Timing: when action starts, it will be "vvv"
  2315               when it ends, it logs the total time it needed for execution
  2316       Flag (some are only logged at end of action):
  2317       +   Page exists
  2318       -   Page does not exist
  2319       B   user agent was recognized as bot / spider
  2320       !x! Action took rather long (the higher the x, the longer it took - this
  2321           makes it easy to grep for problematic stuff).
  2322       Action: action name (None is when no action was specified, moin assumes
  2323               "show" for that case)
  2324       URL: the requested URL
  2326       For more information about tuning your moin setup, see:
  2328     * Added support for ircs, webcal, xmpp, ed2k and rootz protocols - we
  2329       moved all protocols to config.url_schemas, so this is not empty any more.
  2330       It is possible to use these protocols now on wiki pages and in the
  2331       navi_bar. We just generate the URLs, it is up to your browser what it
  2332       does when clicking on those links.
  2333     * cfg.traceback_show (default: 1) can be used to disable showing tracebacks.
  2334       cfg.traceback_log_dir (default: None) can be used to set a directory
  2335       that is used to dump traceback files to. Your users will get a notice to
  2336       which (random) file in that directory the traceback was been written.
  2337       NOTE: while you can feel free to set traceback_show = 0 and
  2338       traceback_log_dir = None, we will also feel free to reject bug reports
  2339       when you (or your site's users) don't give us enough information (like a
  2340       traceback file) to debug the problem. If you set traceback_show = 0,
  2341       we recommend pointing traceback_log_dir to a directory with reasonable
  2342       free space and putting a page onto your wiki that describes who has to
  2343       get contacted (usually the wiki server admin) in case a traceback happens.
  2344       The admin can then locate the traceback file and submit it to moin
  2345       development, if the bug is not already known (see MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs).
  2346       Of course we will also need all the other details of a bug report, not
  2347       only the traceback file.
  2349   Other changes:
  2350     * Updated spider agents list.
  2351     * Reduce bot/spider cpu usage for SystemInfo, OrphanedPages, WantedPages,
  2352       PageHits, PageSize, WordIndex macros (we just return nothing for bots).
  2354   Bugfixes:
  2355     * XSS fixes, see (item 1 and 2).
  2356     * ACL security fixes:
  2357       * MonthCalendar respects ACLs of day pages now.
  2358       * Check the ACL for the rst markup include directive.
  2359     * Fixed cleaning of edit comments (control chars in there could damage
  2360       edit-log).
  2361     * Fixed in-process caching of antispam patterns (didn't update the cache
  2362       for multi-process, persistent servers).
  2363     * Correct encoding/decoding for surge-log data, fixes leftover
  2364       surge-logXXXXXXX.tmp files in data/cache/surgeprotect.
  2365     * Fixed mode of cache files (mkstemp creates them with 0600 mode).
  2366     * Symbolic entities with numbers (like &sup2;) did not work, fixed.
  2367     * We open data/error.log earlier now and we also use it for FastCGI.
  2368     * Fixed unicode cfg.page_group_regex.
  2369     * Fixed moin.spec to use english date format.
  2370     * GUI converter: fixed conversion of relative wiki links.
  2371     * Fixed NewPage macro button label to not be formatted as wiki text.
  2373 Version 1.5.7:
  2374   New features:
  2375     * added url_prefix_local which is used for stuff that must be loaded from
  2376       same site as the wiki engine (e.g. FCKeditor GUI editor applet), while
  2377       url_prefix can be a remote server serving the static files (css/img).
  2378       If not set (or set to None), url_prefix_local will default to the value
  2379       of url_prefix.
  2380     * We save some CPU and disk I/O by having EditTemplates and LikePages macro
  2381       (both used on MissingPage) check whether the requesting entity was
  2382       identified as a spider (e.g. search engine bot) and do nothing in that
  2383       case. Normal users won't see any difference.
  2384     * For AttachFile, you can now choose to overwrite existing files of same
  2385       name (nice for updating files).
  2387   Bugfixes:
  2388     * XSS Fixes:
  2389       * fixed unescaped page info display.
  2390       * fixed unescaped page name display in AttachFile, RenamePage and
  2391         LocalSiteMap actions
  2392     * WantedPages listed existing pages that are not readable for the user,
  2393       but are linked from pages that ARE readable for the user (so this is NOT
  2394       a privacy/security issue). We now don't list those pages any more as it
  2395       is pointless/confusing, the user can't read or edit there anyway.
  2396     * MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/TableOfContentsUsesNonExistingIncludeLinks
  2397     * MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/ActionsExcludedTriggerError
  2398     * GUI editor/converter:
  2399       * ignore <col>/<colgroup>/<meta> elements
  2400       * support <a> within blockquote
  2401     * Remove generated=... attribute from pagelink html output (this attr is
  2402       for internal use only). w3c validator is now happier again.
  2403     * Fixed css class "userpref" (not: "userprefs") of the Login form.
  2404     * Fixed the version number check in the xslt parser for 4suite >= 1.0.
  2405     * We reset the umask to the wanted value every request. This should fix
  2406       wrong file modes when used with Twisted (twistd uses a hardcoded 0077
  2407       umask in daemonize()).
  2408     * Avoid trouble when saving pages with antispam function when MoinMaster
  2409       wiki is having troubles (catch xmlrpc Fault).
  2411   Other changes:
  2412     * Standalone server does not do reverse DNS lookups any more (this is a
  2413       standard feature of BaseHTTPServer stdlib module, but we override this
  2414       now and just print the IP).
  2415     * We moved the IE hacks to theme/css/msie.css that gets included after all
  2416       other css files (but before the user css file) using a conditional
  2417       comment with "if IE", so it gets only loaded for MSIE (no matter which
  2418       version). The file has some standard css inside (evaluated on all MSIE
  2419       versions) and some * html hacks that only IE < 7 will read.
  2420       HINT: if you use custom themes, you want to update them in the same way.
  2421     * Improved ldap auth:
  2422       * cfg.ldap_name_attribute was removed because of new cfg.ldap_filter.
  2423         If you had ldap_name_attribute = 'sAMAccountName' before, just use
  2424         ldap_filter = '(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)' now.
  2425       * New cfg.ldap_filter used for the ldap filter string used in the ldap
  2426         search instead of the rather limited, partly hardcoded filter we used
  2427         before. This is much more flexible:
  2428         ldap_filter = '(sAMAccountName=%(username)s)'
  2429         You can also do more complex filtering expressions like:
  2430         '(&(cn=%(username)s)(memberOf=CN=WikiUsers,OU=Groups,DC=example,DC=org))'
  2431       * Added some processing to filter out result entries with dn == None.
  2432       * We set REFERRALS option to 0 before initializing the ldap server
  2433         connection (this seems to be needed for Active Directory servers).
  2434       * We support self-signed ssl certs for ldaps - completely untested.
  2435       * New cfg.ldap_surname_attribute (usually 'sn'), was hardcoded before.
  2436       * New cfg.ldap_givenname_attribute (usually 'givenName'), hardcoded before.
  2437       * New cfg.ldap_aliasname_attribute (usually 'displayName') - if this
  2438         attribute is not there or empty (in the results of the ldap lookup for
  2439         the user), we just make up the aliasname from surname and givenname
  2440         attribute.
  2441       * We only request the attributes we need from ldap (was: all attrs).
  2442       * We deny user login (and break out of auth chain) for the following cases:
  2443         * if a user is not found by ldap lookup
  2444         * if we find more than one matching entry
  2445         * if the password is empty or incorrect
  2446         * if some exception happens
  2447       * Please note that there is an updated ldap sample config in directory
  2448         wiki/config/more_samples/.
  2449       * Added experimental LDAP SSL/TLS support (untested, please help testing),
  2450         see also the sample config.
  2451     * Work around a IE7 rendering problem with long pages getting more and
  2452       more narrow. We just applied the same "fix" as we used for IE6, using
  2453       "display: none" for span.anchor for IE browsers.
  2454     * RSS feed related:
  2455       * We used to emit a <link> tag for the action=rss_rc RSS feed on any
  2456         page. This was changed, we now emit that link only on RecentChanges and
  2457         the current user's language translation of RecentChanges.
  2458         This was changed because Google Toolbar requests the RSS feed linked
  2459         by such a link tag every time it sees one. Thus, if you used the wiki
  2460         normally, it requested the RSS feed every few seconds and caused
  2461         problems due to surge protection kicking in because of that.
  2462       * HINT for custom theme users: if your theme code calls
  2463         rsslink(), then you need to change that to rsslink(d) for 1.5.7+.
  2466 Version 1.5.6:
  2467   A general security notice:
  2468       Check your Python version, there was a buffer overflow issue in Python
  2469       recently! Details:
  2471   Bugfixes:
  2472     * Fix AttributeError traceback with Standalone server (if_modified_since)
  2473     * Fix AttachFile "304 not modified" and redirect status code for Twisted
  2474     * http auth: we now decode username and password to unicode (using
  2475       config.charset == utf-8). Same for SSL client cert auth and CN.
  2476     * Avoid infinite recursion in Page.parsePageLinks.
  2477     * Fixed standalone server failing to shutdown if interface == "".
  2478     * Now MoinMoin does not think anymore that every page links to various user
  2479       homepages.
  2480     * Made the irssi parser more tolerant (Thanks to "TheAnarcat").
  2481     * Now multiple formatters can be used per request, the send_page code was
  2482       not reentrant to this regard. Fixes "empty" search results.
  2483     * Fixed problem with "=" in ImageLink macro links.
  2484     * Not a moin bug, but a silly stdlib os.tempnam function made trouble to
  2485       some people because it lets you override the path given in the code
  2486       by setting the environment variable TMP(DIR). We now use a different
  2487       function to avoid renaming trouble when TMP(DIR) points to a different
  2488       file system.
  2489     * Fixed antispam update on every save (Thanks to "TheAnarcat").
  2490     * GUI converter: don't throw away rowclass for tables.
  2491     * GUI editor formatter: allow height for table cells.
  2492     * GUI editor formatter: comment texts are output using the formatter now. 
  2494   New features:
  2495     * Mail notifications contain a link to the diff action so the user
  2496       can see the coloured difference more easily. Thanks to Tobias Polzin.
  2497     * FeatureRequests/MoveAttachments - you can move attachments from one
  2498       page to another (and also rename the attachment at the same time).
  2499       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2500     * Added support for linking to attachment: and inline: URLs with ImageLink.
  2501     * Added UNIX socket support for FastCGI, just set the port to some (socket)
  2502       filename. Details see: MoinMoin:FeatureRequests/FastCgiUnixSocket
  2503     * [[Attachlist(pagename,mimetype)]] lists attachments of pagename (default:
  2504       current page) with optional mimetype restriction (default: all).
  2505       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2507   Other changes:
  2508     * Minor performance improvements (might be noticeable if you have many
  2509       custom navi_bar entries and high server load).
  2510     * Avoid usage of no-cache because it breaks attachment download on IE6.
  2511       This is a IE bug, not a moin bug.
  2512     * Added XHTML to the unsafe list.
  2513     * Changed the rst parser to be compatible to the new docutils interface
  2514       for directives.
  2515     * Updated EmbedObject macro.
  2518 Version 1.5.5a:
  2519   Bugfixes:
  2520     * fixed ticket creation to only use constant values
  2522 Version 1.5.5:
  2523   HINT: read docs/README.migration.
  2524   HINT: there was NO change in the underlay/ pages since 1.5.4.
  2525   HINT: If you experience problems with the reStructured Text (rst) parser,
  2526         please downgrade docutils to "0.4" because there were major interface
  2527         breaking API refactorings on the docutils trunk.
  2529   Bugfixes:
  2530     * GUI editor fixes:
  2531       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/GuiEditorModifiesInterwikiPreferred.
  2532       * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/TableAlignmentProbsWithGUI.
  2533     * Not a moin bug, but it severely annoyed IE users and also was less
  2534       comfortable for users of other browser: since about 1.5.4, we served
  2535       attachments with Content-Disposition: attachment - so that the user has
  2536       to save them to disk. This was to fix a possible XSS attack using attached
  2537       HTML files with Javascript inside for stealing your moin cookie or doing
  2538       other nasty things. We improved this by using different behaviour depending
  2539       on the potential danger the attached file has when served inline:
  2540       mimetypes_xss_protect = ['text/html', 'application/x-shockwave-flash', ]
  2541       This is the default value. If you know more dangerous stuff, please just
  2542       add the mimetypes there to protect your users and file a bug report
  2543       telling us what we missed.
  2544     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ReStructuredTextRelativeLinksBroken, thanks to Stefan
  2545       Merten.
  2546     * Make tickets used for some actions more safe.
  2548   New features:
  2549     * edit_ticketing [True] - we protect page save by a ticket (same stuff we
  2550       already use for DeletePage and RenamePage action).
  2551       NOTE: If you don't use your browser for editing, but some tool like
  2552             "editmoin" or "MoinMoin plugin for jEdit", you'll need an update
  2553             of them supporting the ticket.
  2554             Alternatively, you can use edit_ticketing = False setting - this
  2555             is not recommended for internet wikis as it will make spamming them
  2556             easier.
  2557     * If we detect some spammer, we kick him out by triggering surge protection
  2558       (if surge protection is not disabled).
  2560 Version 1.5.5rc1:
  2561   Bugfixes:
  2562     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/XmlRpcBrokenForFastCgi - thanks to Johannes Berg.
  2563     * Fixed gui editor converter confusing of `` and {{{}}} markup.
  2564     * Fixed emission of HTTP headers (esp. Vary: Cache-Control:).
  2565     * Fixed a bad crash that happens (on ANY page!) when you put a *Dict
  2566       page's name as a member into a *Group page.
  2567     * Fix MyPages action title to use an unformatted string.
  2568     * Fix double quoted-printable encoding in generated emails (note: this is
  2569       not a moin bug - this just works around bugs in python stdlib).
  2570     * Fix mode of drawing files (use config.umask).
  2571     * Fix trouble with /?action= urls by dropping getPageNameFromQueryString
  2572       code. 
  2573     * Fixed sre unpickle issues seen on some machines by avoiding to pickle
  2574       the regex.
  2575     * Fix Clock code, add more timers.
  2576     * Worked around FastCGI problem on Lighttpd: empty lines in the error log.
  2577     * Fix (add) locking for caching's .remove() call, small fixes to lock code.
  2578     * Print error message when --target-dir=path is missing from moin export
  2579       dump command.
  2581   New features:
  2582     * Added support for "304 not modified" response header for AttachFile get
  2583       and rss_rc actions - faster, less traffic, less load.
  2584     * Limit rss with full diffs to 5 items.
  2585     * Allow surge_action_limits = None to disable surge protection.
  2586     * moin.fcg improved - if you use FastCGI, you must use the new file:
  2587       * can self-terminate after some number of requests (default: -1, this
  2588         means "unlimited lifetime")
  2589       * the count of created threads is limited now (default: 5), you can use
  2590         1 to use non-threaded operation.
  2591       * configurable socket.listen() backlog (default: 5)
  2592     * Added indonesian i18n (id).
  2593     * Some measures against spammers trying to brute force their spam into moin.
  2594     * EmbedObject macro: added mov, mpg and midi support
  2595     * moin ... export dump --target-dir=PATH --page=PAGENAME_REGEX
  2596       You must specify --target-dir (where dump will write the html files to)
  2597       and you may specify --page and either a page name or a regex used to
  2598       match all pages you want to export. Default is to export all pages.
  2600   Other changes:
  2601     * Tuning:
  2602       * more efficient locking code on POSIX platforms, we do much less I/O
  2603         for locking now
  2604       * removed most chmod calls in favour of a single os.umask call
  2605     * Improved Python 2.5 compatibility. Note: if you think that MoinMoin
  2606       is using too much RAM, you might want to look at Python 2.5 because
  2607       of its improved memory management.
  2608     * Throw away SAVE comments longer than 200 chars (you can't enter those by
  2609       the user interface, so only spammer using automatic POSTs do them).
  2610     * Updated spider user agent list.
  2611     * BadContent and LocalBadContent now get noindex,nofollow robots header,
  2612       same as POSTs.
  2613     * Standalone opens it logfile unbuffered from now on, thanks to
  2614       Carsten Grohmann.
  2615     * Avoid trouble when request.write() data contains None, just skip it -
  2616       thanks to Juergen Hermann.
  2617     * Instead of showing a ConfigurationError, moin now emits "404 Not found"
  2618       http headers and a hint about what could be wrong. This won't fill up
  2619       your logs just because of typos and spiders still trying old URLs.
  2622 Version 1.5.4:
  2623     HINT: read docs/README.migration.
  2624 Version 1.5.4-current:
  2625     * increased maxlength of some input fields from 80 to 200
  2627 Version 1.5.current:
  2628   Developer notes:
  2629     * We switched to Mercurial SCM, see here for more infos:
  2632   Bugfixes:
  2633     * fix MonthCalendar macro for non-ASCII pagenames (thanks to Jonas Smedegaard)
  2634     * remove 'search' and 'google' from bot user agent list and add some more
  2635       specific terms
  2636     * Fix the forgotten password email login URL and also properly encode the
  2637       email body. Thanks to Robin Dunn for the patch.
  2638     * Applied a patch by Matthew Gilbert for increased compatiblity with
  2639       latest docutils.
  2642 Version 1.5.3:
  2643   New Features:
  2644     * Added CSS classes for TableOfContents macro.
  2646   Bug Fixes:
  2647     * GUI editor / GUI editor converter:
  2648       * Fixed missing GUI editor link in edit bar.
  2649       * Fixed table/row/cell style spaces.
  2650       * Changed <p> generation for macros.
  2651       * Fixed handling of subpages.
  2652       * Fixed processing of complex list elements (thanks to Craig Markwardt).
  2653       * Fixed processing of html \n (thanks to Craig Markwardt).
  2654       * Fixed joining of comment lines with text below them.
  2655       * Fixed table height attribute crash.
  2656     * Fixed sslclientcert auth.
  2657     * Added some missing files to i18n processing, translatable strings more
  2658       complete now.
  2659     * Change <p> generation from self-closing (<p />) to auto-closing (only
  2660       emit <p>, let browser find place for </p>).
  2661     * Fix eating of newline before tables.
  2662     * Fixed incorrect login hint for not logged-in users trying a disallowed
  2663       action.
  2664     * Fixed nasty missing or double </a> formatter bug (mostly happening when
  2665       user has enabled questionmarks for nonexisting pages).
  2667   Other Changes:
  2668     * We catch and ignore html to wiki conversion errors in case of hitting
  2669       the cancel button, so you can get out of the error screen.
  2671 Version 1.5.3-rc2:
  2672   New Features:
  2673     * Modified SystemInfo macro to give human readable units and disk usage
  2674     * cfg.editor_quickhelp makes the quick help below the editor configurable
  2675       (at least as far as the default_markup is concerned). If set to None,
  2676       it doesn't display any quickhelp. Thanks to Seth Falcon for the patch.
  2678   Bugfixes:
  2679     * Fixed double class attribute for nonexistent links
  2680     * Fixed double </a> with qm_noexist option
  2681     * Fixed table xxx="yyy" style attribute parsing
  2682     * If not (editor_force and editor_default == 'text') then display GUI mode
  2683       switch button (this is only a partial fix, but enough to deny the GUI
  2684       mode to your users completely)
  2685     * Fixed XSS issue which could lead to cookie theft etc.
  2686     * Fixed definition list "same level" indenting.
  2687     * Fixed pagename in log for PackagePages action.
  2688     * Made <p> self-closing and line-anchors more well-behaved, thanks to
  2689       Martin Wilck for the patch. I didn't apply the <ol> patch, because this
  2690       is no real problem, just a problem of a bad standard.
  2691     * Fixed gui editor *bgcolor crash.
  2692     * Support/Fix tableclass attr with gui editor.
  2694   Other changes:
  2695     * Moved back UserPreferences action link from menu to top of page (renaming
  2696       it to "Preferences"), added "Cancel" button to make it possible to return
  2697       to the previous page without saving preferences.
  2698     * Removed formatter.url "attrs" keyword arg that took premade html, we use
  2699       separate kw args per attribute now.
  2700     * Moved broken tests to MoinMoin/_tests/broken (= disabling them).
  2701       All "active" tests run ok now.
  2702       If you want to compare, I included the output of this test run:
  2703       $ make test >tests/make_test.out
  2706 Version 1.5.3-rc1:
  2708   New features:
  2709     * HINT: please read README.migration
  2710     * Login and Logout are actions now, therefore you stay on the page where
  2711       you were before.
  2712     * UserPreferences is also an action now and moved from top border (in
  2713       modern theme) to the "more actions" dropdown menu. You also stay on the
  2714       same page.
  2715     * There is also a [[Login]] macro now. You can put it on any page you want
  2716       and if the user is not logged in, it renders the login form. If the user
  2717       is logged in, it doesn't render anything.
  2718     * We check cfg.superuser to be a list of user names (as documented) and
  2719       deny superuser access if it is not. This avoids security issues by
  2720       wrong configuration.
  2721     * auth methods changed:
  2722       HINT: if you wrote own auth methods, please change them as you see in
  2723             MoinMoin/ and test them again before relying on them.
  2724       * now get a user_obj kw argument that is either a user object returned
  2725         from a previous auth method or None (if no user has been made up yet).
  2726         The auth method should either return a user object (if it has
  2727         determined one) or what it got as user_obj (being "passive") or None
  2728         (if it wants to "veto" some user even if a previous method already has
  2729         made up some user object).
  2730       * return value of continue_flag is now True in most cases (except if
  2731         it wants to "veto" and abort).
  2732       * moin_cookie auth method now logs out a user by deleting the cookie and
  2733         setting user_obj.valid = 0. This makes it possible to still get the
  2734         user's name in subsequent auth method calls within the same request.
  2735       * added ldap_login and smb_mount auth methods, see MoinMoin/ and
  2736         wiki/config/more_samples/
  2737     * MonthCalendar now takes an additional argument for specifying a template
  2738       to use to directly invoke the page editor when clicking on non-existing
  2739       day pages.
  2740     * Added ImageLink macro. Thanks to Jeff Kunce, Marcin Zalewski, Reimar
  2741       Bauer and Chong-Dae Park for working on it.
  2742     * Lupy stuff (still experimental, partly broken and disabled by default):
  2743       * Attachment search using lupy (lupy_search = 1 in your config)
  2744         Title search will also search attachment filenames.
  2745         Full text search will also search attachment contents.
  2746       * Indexing filter plugins, see MoinMoin:FiltersForIndexing
  2747         Some filters depend on external converters that might not be available
  2748         for any platform (see Depends: line in filter plugin).
  2749         Feel free to contribute more filter plugins, especially if you wrote
  2750         some nice platform independant filter in Python for some popular file
  2751         format! Filters implemented so far (depending on):
  2752         MS Word, RTF, MS Excel (antiword, catdoc)
  2753         PDF (pdftotext)
  2754 XML based data formats (-)
  2755         XML, HTML (-)
  2756         text/* (-)
  2757         JPEG's EXIF data (-)
  2758         Binary generic (-)
  2759       * As you might know, Lupy is "retired" (that means it isn't developped
  2760         by its authors any more). We are currently evaluating Xapian as new
  2761         indexing search engine in moin.
  2762         If we succeed, we will replace Lupy stuff by some Xapian interface
  2763         code in moin.
  2764         But: the filters will likely stay, as we also need them with Xapian.
  2766     * A new MoinMoin script interface was introduced:
  2768       Syntax: moin [options] <cmdmodule> <cmdname> [options]
  2770       For example:
  2771       moin --config-dir=/my/cfgdir \
  2772            export dump --page=WikiSandBox
  2774       This will call the "moin" script, which will use the --config-dir and
  2775       --wiki-url options to initialize, then it will go to MoinMoin.script
  2776       module, import the export.dump module from there and run it, providing
  2777       the additional --page value to it.
  2779       The old scripts that have not been migrated to this new interface can
  2780       still be found in MoinMoin/script/old/ - including the old migration
  2781       scripts.
  2782     * moin ... account create --name=JoeDoe
  2783     * moin ... account disable --name=JoeDoe
  2784     * moin ... acount check     <-- this is what usercheck script was before
  2785     * moin ... maint cleancache <-- this is what cachecleaner script was
  2786     * moin ... maint cleanpage  <-- this is what pagescleaner script was
  2788   Bugfixes:
  2789     * cookie_lifetime didn't work comfortable for low values. The cookie was
  2790       created once on login and never updated afterwards. So you got logged
  2791       out cookie_lifetime hours later, no matter whether you were active at
  2792       that time or not. This has been changed, we update the cookie expiry now
  2793       on every request, so it will expire cookie_lifetime after your last
  2794       request (not after login).
  2795     * Fixed logout problems when using cfg.cookie_path.
  2796     * Fixed cookie_path for root url wikis.
  2797     * Lupy search now behaves a bit less funky. Still no guarantees...
  2798     * We lowered the twisted server timeout to 2 minutes now (was: 10) because
  2799       it just used up too many files (open TCP connections until it timeouts)
  2800       on our farm.
  2801     * The algorithm used for processing the farmconfig.wikis list was changed
  2802       to work for big farms (>= 50 wikis), too. This works around the python
  2803       "re" module limitation of having a maximum of 100 named groups in a RE.
  2804     * Fixed a TypeError which occurred for formatters that dislike None values.
  2805       (cf.
  2806     * Fixed GUI editor converter error for https:... image URLs.
  2807     * ThemeBase (use by modern/rightsidebar): removed duplicate AttachFile from
  2808       actions menu (we already have it in editbar).
  2809     * Speedup group/dicts scanning for persistent servers.
  2810     * Implemented HEAD requests for standalone server, this should fix some of
  2811       the strange effects happening when using "Save as" on attachments.
  2812     * Not a moin bug, but rather a workaround for non-standard non-ASCII DNS
  2813       hostnames: we just use the IP instead of crashing now.
  2814     * Spurious cyclic usage error in i18n fixed.
  2815     * Fixed antispam for python 2.5a xmlrpclib.
  2816     * I18n for linenumber toggle in listings.
  2817     * All action menu entries are translatable now.
  2819   Other:
  2820     * Added css classes for the rst admonitions. Thanks to TiagoMacambira!
  2822 Version 1.5.2:
  2824   New features:
  2825     * Added FullSearchCached macro which is statically cached.
  2826       Use it if you do not depend on fresh search results but prefer raw speed.
  2827     * Added surge protection, see HelpOnConfiguration/SurgeProtection.
  2828     * Allow hex and symbolic entities.
  2829     * If there is a user with empty password, we just generate a random one
  2830       when he requests it getting sent by mail. Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2831     * The superuser now can switch to another user using UserPreferences -
  2832       nice to help your users when they forgot their password or need other
  2833       help. You need to logout/relogin to use your own userid afterwards.
  2834       This function only works correctly if you use moin_cookie authentication.
  2835       Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2836     * Add new markup for bulletless lists: just use a "." instead of "*".
  2838   Other changes:
  2839     * Added "voyager" to bot useragent list.
  2840     * Added locking for caching subsystem.
  2841     * Deron Meranda's formatter API cleanup.
  2842     * Added div and span to formatter API.
  2843     * Removed old unfinished form and export code.
  2844     * updated i18n
  2846   Fixes:
  2847    * Fixed table attribute parsing.
  2848    * Fixed cookie handling wrt properties adherance.
  2849    * The new "." list markup makes it possible to have a bulletless list with
  2850      elements on the same level. Before this change and only using indentation
  2851      with blanks, that would get merged into a single paragraph.
  2852    * It is possible now to have multiple paragraphs in the same list element,
  2853      just leave an empty line in between the paragraphs.
  2854    * Fixed GAP processing for ordered lists.
  2855    * Fix text_gedit formatter's invalid list nesting.
  2856    * Fixed hr crash in blockquote (but needs more work).
  2857    * Fixed FootNote's formatter usage.
  2858    * Fixed rst's headline levels.
  2859    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/WikiParserThinksItIsInsidePreWhenItIsNot
  2860    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ListItemGeneratedOutsideList
  2861    * Fixed that macros were followed by a wrong <p>.
  2862    * Added <blockquote> to the block elements in the text_html formatter,
  2863      so it does not close it erratically when you close a inner <p>.
  2864    * GUI editor converter now also accept http: urls without // (relative or
  2865      same server urls).
  2866    * Fixed the DocBook parser in cases where the pagename was non-ascii.
  2867    * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/ProcessInlineDontSupportUlElement
  2870 Version 1.5.1:
  2872   Fixes:
  2873     * Fixed rst parser docutils version check
  2874     * Repaired attachment unzipping feature.
  2875     * Fixed the AddRevision command of the PackageInstaller.
  2876     * improved the migration scripts (used to migrate pre-1.3 wikis to 1.3+):
  2877       * do not crash on empty lines in event log
  2878       * fix edit log format for very old moin data (like 0.11)
  2879       * workaround for an ugly win32 operating system bug leading to wiki text
  2880         file mtime not matching edit logs timestamp values if there was some
  2881         timezone change since last edit (e.g. a daylight saving tz switch),
  2882         but differing 3600s.
  2883         This affected pre-1.3 moin wiki servers running on win32 OS only.
  2884         We now try to correct those inconsistencies in mig05 by fuzzy matching.
  2885     * fixed bracketed link scheme icon (css class)
  2886     * we included a modified copy of Python 2.4.2's as some previous
  2887       python versions seem to have problems (2.3.x, x < 5 and also 2.4[.0]),
  2888       see:
  2889       Our own was slightly modified to run on 2.3.x and 2.4.x.
  2890     * Fixed the problem of not being able to change the date/time format back
  2891       to "Default" (UserPreferences).
  2892     * We generate the GUI editor footer now the same way as the text editor
  2893       footer.
  2894     * Include a CSS workaround for yet another IE bug, see:
  2895       MoinMoinBugs:InternetExplorerPeekABooBugInRightSideBar
  2896     * classic theme: added GUI editor link
  2897     * classic theme: added pagename header to editor screen
  2898     * the "mail enabled" check now also checks whether mail_from is set
  2900   Other changes:
  2901     * Updated FCKeditor to current CVS (2006-01-08 == 2.2+)
  2902     * Split up show_hosts into show_hosts and show_names
  2903     * attachment:file%20with%20spaces.txt in attachment list
  2904     * added support for file:// in GUI editor link dialogue, see also:
  2905       MoinMoin:FileLinks
  2906     * cfg.mail_smarthost now supports "server:port" syntax, the default port
  2907       is 25, of course.
  2908     * removed unused kwargs showpage/editable/form from wikiutil.send_footer
  2909     * updated i18n (translation texts, additional languages)
  2910     * removed interwiki:pagename from print view's top of page, added it to
  2911       the "lasted edited" line at bottom right.
  2914 Version 1.5.0:
  2915   HINT: 1.5.0 uses the same data/pages format as 1.3.x. The only thing you want
  2916         to check is whether the 1.5.x version you are upgrading to has NEW mig
  2917         scripts compared to the version you are running now (e.g. in 1.3.5 we
  2918         added some scripts that fixed some small problems).
  2919         See the MoinMoin/scripts/migration/ directory.
  2920         You must run every mig script in sequence and only ONCE ever.
  2921   Fixes:
  2922     * Fix <x=y> table attributes parsing. Thanks to Reimar Bauer.
  2923     * Fixed a few bugs in the reStructured text parser. Note that you
  2924       need to install docutils 0.3.10 or newer (snapshot from December 2005
  2925       or newer) to make reStructuring parsing work:
  2926      * Case preservation for anonymous links
  2927      * MoinMoin links get the appropriate CSS class
  2928      * Images do not get special CSS markup anymore
  2929      Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2930     * Fixed a bug in the WSGI code which led to incorrect exception handling.
  2931     * Removed all nationality flags. They used to be used for indicating some
  2932       specific language (NOT nationality) and this was simply wrong and a bad
  2933       idea.
  2934     * Fixed some header rendering issues (CSS).
  2935     * SystemAdmin macro now checks against cfg.superuser list.
  2937   Other changes:
  2938     * Added turkish i18n. To be considered as alpha as it got in last minute.
  2941 Version 1.5.0rc1:
  2942   This is the first release candidate of MoinMoin 1.5.0.
  2944   Fixes:
  2945     * fixed broken logs when a DeletePage (maybe also RenamePage) comment
  2946       contained CR/LF characters (could happen when using copy&paste)
  2947     * fixed GUI editor MoinEditorBackup page containing HTML instead of wiki
  2948       markup
  2949     * fixed invalid HTML in FootNotes
  2950     * fixed HTML source in EditorBackup after canceling GUI editor
  2951     * Footnotes of included pages are not shown at the bottom of the including page.
  2952     * Bug in Dict handling that often breaks first entry
  2954 Version 1.5.0beta6:
  2955   Authentication:
  2956     * Added SSO module for PHP based apps. Currently supported: eGroupware 1.2.
  2957       No need to login in two systems anymore - MoinMoin will read the PHP session
  2958       files.
  2960   Fixes:
  2961     * Improved rendering of bullet lists and external links in Restructured text.
  2962       Thanks to Matthew Gilbert.
  2963     * Fixed modern theme rendering, including some fixes and workarounds for
  2964       broken MS IE.
  2965     * When checking for email uniqueness, do not compare with disabled user
  2966       profiles.
  2967     * Fix sending of HTTP headers for Despam action.
  2968     * Add some margin left and right of the link icons.
  2970   Other changes:
  2971     * Made it easier for auth methods needing a user interface (like ldap or
  2972       mysql stuff). Unlike http auth, they usually need some "login form".
  2973       We made UserPreferences login form values (name, password, login, logout)
  2974       available as kw args of the auth method, so it is easy and obvious now.
  2975     * Make login and logout show at the same place. Is only shown when
  2976       show_login is True (default).
  2977     * Disabled login using &uid=12345.67.8910 method. Please use name/password.
  2978     * Made builtin moin_cookie authentication more modular: the cookie is now
  2979       touched by MoinMoin.auth.moin_cookie only, with one minor discomfort:
  2980       When creating a user, you are not automatically logged in any more.
  2981     * We now use the packager for additional help and system pages in all other
  2982       languages except English. The packages are attached to SystemPagesSetup
  2983       page and can be installed from there after getting "superuser" powers.
  2984       The "extra" package contains a collection of orphan pages not listed on
  2985       some SystemPagesIn<Language>Group page.
  2988 Version 1.5.0beta5:
  2989   Fixes:
  2990     * Fixed a minor user interface bug: it showed RenamePage and DeletePage
  2991       actions in the menu if you only had write rights and then complained
  2992       when you really tried when you had no delete rights additionally.
  2993     * We don't remove RenamePage and DeletePage from menu any more if user is
  2994       unknown. This stuff is only driven by ACLs now.
  2995     * Some fixes to Despam action.
  2996     * Fixed moin_dump (broken by some recent theme init change).
  2997     * Fixed a few tests by moving the theme init from moin_dump to RequestCLI.
  2998     * removed old_onload reference from infobox.js
  2999     * Fixed MoinMoin logo for IE.
  3000     * search: fixed whitespace handling in linkto: search terms
  3001     * Increased stability of the tests system by outputting results to sys.stdout
  3002       instead of request. Note that this changes the semantics for e.g. mod_py or
  3003       mod_fcgi.
  3004     * Fixed packaging system in the case of AddRevision that does not alter the page.
  3005     * Fixed a few bugs in the XML formatters (dom_xml, text_xml, xml_docbook).
  3006     * Fixed link icons. We now just use where xxx is the link scheme,
  3007       e.g. a.http.before. See theme's common.css.
  3008     * Hopefully fixed some issue with non-ASCII attachment filenames.
  3009     * Workaround for Opera 8.5 making silly "No addition" categories.
  3010     * Do not show GUI editor for non-wiki format pages, because we only have a
  3011       converter from html to wiki right now.
  3012     * Fix the modern CSS issues for editbar, when it shifted content far right.
  3013       Also removed the absolute height value that never was right.
  3014     * Fix mod_python adaptor bugs failing to handle Location correctly.
  3015       See:
  3017   Other changes:
  3018     * Added irc:// to the builtin supported link schemas. You can remove it
  3019       from config.url_schemas in case you have patched it in there.
  3020     * Added cfg.user_autocreate (default: False). Use True to enable user
  3021       profile autocreation, e.g. when you use http authentication, so your
  3022       externally authenticated users don't need to create their moin profile
  3023       manually. The auth method (see cfg.auth list) must check this setting
  3024       if it supports auto creation.
  3025     * Added user_autocreate support for auth.http and auth.sslclientcert.
  3026     * Added "." and "@" to allowed characters in usernames. This is needed
  3027       e.g. when using mod_pubcookie for authentication. mod_pubcookie returns
  3028       userids like "geek@ANDREW.CMU.EDU" (e.g. the Kerberos domain is part of
  3029       the id). Thanks to Brian E. Gallew for his patch, which we used for
  3030       inspiration for user autocreation changes.
  3031     * Changed auth method to return a tuple (user_obj, continue_flag), see
  3032       comments in
  3033     * auth methods now create user objects with kw args auth_method and
  3034       auth_attribs, so that moin knows later how the user was authenticated
  3035       and which user object attributes were determined by the auth method.
  3036     * Added MoinMoin/scripts/import/ to import supybot's
  3037       IRC logs into a moin wiki. We use MonthCalendar compatible page names,
  3038       so you can use the calendar for showing / navigating the logs.
  3039     * Removed packager binary from FCKeditor (fixing a Debian policy problem).
  3040     * Worked around .png transparency bugs of IE with the new logo. We ship
  3041       two logos: moinmoin.png without an alpha channel (IE compatible) and
  3042       moinmoin_alpha.png which has an alpha channel and looks better on
  3043       browsers with full .png support.
  3044     * Allow a .zip file to have a directory in it if it is the only one.
  3046 Version 1.5.0beta4:
  3047   Fixes:
  3048     * use <span class="anchor"> instead of <a> for line-xxx anchors, this
  3049       fixes some rendering problems on IE
  3050     * Fixed the ReStructured text parser when it was used with non-HTML
  3051       formatters. Increased compatiblity with new docutils code.
  3052       (Thanks to Matt Gilbert.)
  3053   Other changes:
  3054     * cfg.stylesheets = [] (default). You can use this on wiki or farm level
  3055       to emit stylesheets after the theme css and before the user prefs css.
  3056       The list entries must be ('screen', '/where/ever/is/my.css') style.
  3057     * Added sample code for auth using an external cookie made by some other
  3058       program. See contrib/auth_externalcookie/*. You need to edit it to
  3059       fit whatever cookie you want to use.
  3061 Version 1.5.0beta3:
  3062   Fixes:
  3063     * fixed editor preview throwing away page content for new pages
  3064     * require POST for userform save and create* action
  3065     * use request.normalizePagename() while collecting pagelinks
  3066     * do not offer gui editor for safari
  3067   Other changes:
  3068     * tell user if account is disabled
  3069     * added support for linking to .ico and .bmp
  3070     * attachment methods for the text_xml and xml_docbook formatters
  3071     * new favicon
  3072     * updated i18n (fixed nl, did nobody notice this?) and underlay
  3073     * changed show_interwiki default to 0
  3075 Version 1.5.0beta2:
  3076   Fixes:
  3077     * fix wrong _ in title links (MoinMoinBugs/AddSpaceWikiNameAtHead)
  3078     * fix gui editor (converter) crash on save
  3079     * MoinMoinBugs/PageHitsFails
  3080     * MoinMoinBugs/PackagePagesFailsBecauseAllowedActionsMissing
  3081     * Avoid destroying existing page content if editor is called with
  3082       template parameter for an existing page.
  3083     * fix countdown javascript for browser status line in editor
  3084     * added page title display for editor
  3085     * added header div for classic theme
  3087   Authentication and related:
  3088     * Added a wiki xmlrpc plugin to check whether auth works
  3089       correctly for xmlrpc. There is a counterpart script that
  3090       uses http auth when calling the xmlrpc plugin, so you can use it to
  3091       check http auth.
  3093 Version 1.5.0beta1:
  3094     * Requirements changed to require Python >= 2.3. We recommend that
  3095       you use the latest Python release you can get. The reason we
  3096       dropped 2.2.2 support is because no developer or tester uses this
  3097       old version any more, so incompatibilities crept in the code
  3098       without anybody noticing. Using some recent Python usually is no
  3099       real problem, see there for some hints in case you still run an
  3100       old python:
  3101       The hint also does apply to other POSIX style operating systems,
  3102       not only Linux.
  3103     * We recommend you use MoinMoin/scripts/ to clean the
  3104       wiki's cache (see comments at top of the script).
  3105       The cache will automatically be rebuilt (some operations may take
  3106       some time when first being used, e.g. linkto: search, so be patient!).
  3108   Config Changes:
  3109      * there is a file CHANGES.config with just the recently changed stuff
  3110        from
  3111      * new defaults:
  3112        * page_front_page old: u"FrontPage" new: u"HelpOnLanguages"
  3113          please just read the help page in case you see it :)
  3114        * bang_meta old: 0 new: 1
  3115        * show_section_numbers old: 1 new: 0
  3116        * some regexes that used to be [a-z]Uxxxx$ are now [a-z0-9]Uxxxx$
  3117        * navi_bar has no page_front_page as first element any more
  3118      * removed settings and code [new behaviour]:
  3119        * acl_enabled [1]
  3120        * allow_extended_names [1]
  3121        * allow_numeric_entities [1]
  3122        * backtick_meta [1]
  3123        * allow_subpages [1]
  3124      * new settings:
  3125       * cfg.mail_sendmail = "/usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i" can be used if sending
  3126         via SMTP doesn't work on your server. Default is None and that means
  3127         using SMTP.
  3128       * language_default replaces the old default_lang setting (just renamed).
  3129       * language_ignore_browser = True can be used to let moin ignore the
  3130         user's browser settings (e.g. if you run a local-language only wiki
  3131         and your users use misconfigured or buggy browsers often). Default is
  3132         False. Don't forget to set language_default when using this.
  3134     * Wiki Editor changes / new WYSIWYG editor
  3135      * fully imported the javascript based LGPLed FCKeditor (many thanks
  3136       to Fred CK for his great work). See for details.
  3137      * config for FCKeditor is at wiki/htdocs/applets/moinfckeditor.js
  3138      * added cfg.interwiki_preferred (default = []) to set a list of wikis to
  3139        show at the top of the wiki selection list when inserting an
  3140        interwiki link (just use the same wiki name as in interwiki
  3141        map). If the last list item is None, then the preferred wikis
  3142        will not be followed by the entries of the interwiki map.
  3143     * moved save/preview/... buttons to the top so that they can be
  3144       easily reached
  3145     * reduced edit_rows default to 20 lines
  3146     * Added support for edit by doubleclick in the diff view
  3148     * Improved wiki farm support
  3149      * make user files sharable between several wikis in a farm
  3150       * allow/use interwiki subscriptions
  3151       * use interwiki links in page trail
  3152       * save bookmark per wiki name
  3153      * cfg.cookie_domain can be used to set a cookie valid for a complete
  3154        domain (default: None == only for this host). If you use '.domain.tld',
  3155        the cookie will be valid for all hosts *.domain.tld - good for host
  3156        based wiki farms.
  3157      * cfg.cookie_path can be used to set a cookie valid for a wiki farm under
  3158        some base path (default: None == only for this wiki's path). If you use
  3159        '/wikifarm',  the cookie will be valid for all wikis
  3160        server.tld/wikifarm/* - good for path based wiki farms.
  3161      * Interwiki user homepage (if you have MANY users)
  3162        Generated links for usernames are interwiki now, use cfg.user_homewiki
  3163        (default: 'Self') to specify in which wiki the user home pages are
  3164        located. Note: when pointing this to another wiki, the /MoinEditorBackup
  3165        functionality will be disabled.
  3166        @SIG@ also uses interwiki when needed.
  3168     * Authentication, ACLs and related
  3169      * Modular authentication: cfg.auth is a list of functions that return a
  3170        valid user or None, use it like this:
  3171            from MoinMoin.auth import http, moin_cookie
  3172            auth = [http, moin_cookie]
  3173      * cfg.auth_http_enabled was removed, please use cfg.auth instead.
  3174      * http auth now supports "Negotiate" scheme, too
  3175      * Added sslclientcert auth method (Apache: untested, Twisted: not
  3176        implemented, IIS: no idea). See MoinMoin/ for details.
  3177        Submit a patch if you have improvements.
  3178      * cfg.superuser is a list of unicode usernames. It is used by some
  3179        critical operations like despam action or PackageInstaller.
  3180      * removed allowed_actions, we now use actions_excluded only and it
  3181        defaults to [], that means, no action is excluded, everything is
  3182        allowed (limited by ACLs). In case of RenamePage and DeletePage,
  3183        this shouldn't be a problem as both can be reverted. In case you
  3184        did not allow attachments, you now have to use:
  3185        actions_excluded = ['AttachFile']
  3186      * special users (All, Known, Trusted) in Groups are now supported
  3187      * SecurityPolicy added
  3188        When using this security policy, a user will get admin rights on his
  3189        homepage (where pagename == username) and its sub pages. This is needed
  3190        for the MyPages action, but can also get used for manual ACL changes.
  3191        It can also be used for Project page auto admin functionality, see the
  3192        comments in the script for details.
  3193        Further it can automatically create the user's group pages when the
  3194        user saves his homepage.
  3195      * there is a UpdateGroup xmlrpc call, see MoinMoin/xmlrpc/ -
  3196        you can use this to update your *Group pages e.g. when generating them
  3197        from an external group database.
  3199     * UserPreferences changes
  3200      * Alias name: is used for display purposes, when "name" is cryptic. It is
  3201        shown e.g. in the title attribute of userid links (displayed when
  3202        moving the mouse over it).
  3203      * "Publish my email (not my wiki homepage) in author info" - use this
  3204        if you don't have a wiki homepage, but if you want to be contactable
  3205        by email. When you edit a page, your email address will be published
  3206        as mailto: link on RecentChanges, at bottom of page (last editor) and
  3207        in page info. If the wiki runs publically on the internet, be careful
  3208        using this or your email address might be collected by spammers.
  3209      * Preferred Editor: whether you want to use the text editor (as in
  3210        previous moin versions), the gui editor (new!) or both (you will get
  3211        2 edit links in that case).
  3212      * a user can add/remove the current page to/from his quicklinks with an
  3213        appropriate action now
  3214      * if cfg.user_email_unique = False, we don't require user's email
  3215        addresses to be unique
  3216      * removed show_fancy_links user preferences setting to simplify code and
  3217        caching. Displaying those icons is now done by CSS styles (see
  3218        common.css). Maybe needs fixing for non-standard themes and RTL langs.
  3220     * Markup
  3221      * added strikethrough markup: --(striked through text here)--
  3222      * @ME@ expands to just the plain username (no markup added) on save
  3224     * User homepages
  3225      * when a user accesses his own non-existing homepage (pagename ==
  3226        username), the wiki will present the MissingHomePage system page
  3227        content, explaining what a user homepage is good for and offer
  3228        one-click editing it with content loaded from HomepageTemplate
  3229      * creation of homepage subpages is assisted by the MyPages action, which
  3230        offers rw, ro page creation (and a related group) or creation of private
  3231        pages. If you are not in the user_homewiki, you will get redirected
  3232        there first.
  3234   Other changes/new features:
  3235     * Added PackageInstaller and unzipping support (see wiki page
  3236       HelpOnActions/AttachFile for further details).  PackageInstaller requires
  3237       the user to be in cfg.superuser list.
  3238      * Added an PackagePages action to simplify the package creation.
  3239     * Added location breadcrumbs - when you are on some subpage, the page
  3240       title parts link to the corresponding parent pages, the last part does
  3241       the usual reverse linking.
  3242     * added WSGI server support, thanks to Anakim Border, see:
  3243       wiki/server/ (moin as WSGI app, uses the flup WSGI server,
  3244                                see
  3245       MoinMoin/server/ (adaptor code)
  3246     * added a "Despam" action to make de-spamming a wiki easy (mass revert
  3247       bad changes done by a single author or bot). You need to be in
  3248       cfg.superuser to use it.
  3249     * Better diffs with links to anchors to the changed places
  3250     * Enhanced table support in the DocBook formatter.
  3251     * Added 'moin' daemon script, that let you run moin standalone
  3252       server as daemon and control the server with simple command line
  3253       intreface: moin start | stop | restart | kill
  3254     * Add 'restart' option to mointwisted script
  3255     * Add properties option to standalone server config. Allow
  3256       overriding any request property like in other server types.
  3257     * Add support for running behind proxy out of the box with out
  3258       manual url mapping.
  3259       See HelpOnConfiguration/IntegratingWithApache
  3260     * added a WikiBackup action, configure it similar to this:
  3261       data_dir = "/path/to/data"
  3262       backup_include = [data_dir, ] # you can add other dirs here
  3263       backup_users = ["BackupUserName", ] # only TRUSTED users!
  3264       You usually don't need to change the default backup_exclude setting.
  3265       The default backup_include list is EMPTY and so will be your
  3266       backup in case you don't configure it correctly.
  3267       If you put your data_dir there, the backup will contain private
  3268       user data like email addresses and encrypted passwords.
  3269     * Added a SubscribeUser action which allows the administrator to subscribe users to the
  3270       current page.
  3271     * Added thread count to SystemInfo macro.
  3272     * 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.
  3273     * Added a RenderAsDocbook action which redirects to the DocBook formatter.
  3274     * Added searching for wiki-local words lists under <data_dir>/dict/.
  3275       They are used additionally to the global lists in MoinMoin/dict/.
  3276     * moin_dump now also dumps attachments referenced from the page.
  3277       It doesn't dump stuff that is just attached, but not referenced!
  3278     * On RecentChanges we now force the comment to be breakable, this improves
  3279       rendering of over-long words or on narrow browser windows - especially
  3280       for themes with limited content width like rightsidebar.
  3281     * We now have the "new" icon on RecentChanges clickable, just links to the
  3282       page.
  3283     * Print view now shows "interwikiname: pagename" (for show_interwiki = 1).
  3285   International support:    
  3286     * mail_from can be now a unicode name-address 
  3287       e.g u'Jürgen wiki <>'
  3289   Theme changes:
  3290     * logo_string is now should be really only the logo (img).
  3291       If you included your wiki's name in logo_string you maybe want to remove
  3292       it now as it is shown as part of the location display now anyway (if
  3293       you set show_interwiki = 1).
  3294     * You maybe want to remove page_front_page from your navi_bar - we link to
  3295       that page now from the logo and (new, if you set show_interwiki = 1) from
  3296       the interwiki name displayed in location display, so you maybe don't need
  3297       it in navi_bar, too.
  3298     * If you have a custom theme, you should / may:
  3299      * sync modern/css/screen.css #pagelocation #pagetrail stuff to your
  3300        screen.css or pagelocation display (title()) will look strange (like a
  3301        list).
  3302      * remove "#title h1 ..." CSS (or any other CSS assuming h1 is a page
  3303        title and not just a first level heading), it is not used any more.
  3304      * we now render = heading = as <h1> (was <h2> before 1.5),
  3305        == heading == as <h2> (was <h3>), etc.
  3306      * maybe move both title() and trail() to header area, like the builtin
  3307        themes do it.
  3308      * there is a new interwiki() base theme method that optionally (if
  3309        show_interwiki = 1) shows the interwiki name of this wiki and links to
  3310        page_front_page. The css for it is #interwiki.
  3312   Developer notes:    
  3313     * Plugin API was improved. When plugin module is missing,
  3314       wikiutil.PluginMissingError is raised. When trying to import a
  3315       missing name from a plugin module, wikiutil.PluginMissingError is
  3316       raised. You must update any code that use wikiutil.importPlugin.
  3317       Errors in your plugin should raise now correct tracebacks. See
  3319     * pysupport.importName was changed, it does not check for any
  3320       errors when trying to import a name from a module. The calling
  3321       code should check for ImportError or AttributeError. Previous
  3322       code used to hide all errors behind None.
  3323     * Its easier now to customize the editbar by overriding
  3324       editbarItems() in your theme, and returning a list of items to
  3325       display in the editbar. To change a single editbar link, override
  3326       one of the xxxLink methods in your theme.
  3328   Internal Changes:
  3329     * request.formatter (html) is available for actions now
  3330     * theme API's d['page_home_page'] is gone (sorry) and replaced by
  3331       d['home_page'] which is either None or tuple (wikiname,pagename).
  3332       It is better to use the base classes function for username/prefs anyway.
  3333     * introduced cfg.hacks for internal use by development, see comment in
  3334 and file HACKS.
  3335     * added IE7 (v0.9) from Dean Edwards (see -
  3336       that should fix quite some IE bugs and annoyances (on Win32).
  3337       * for enabling IE7, use cfg.hacks = { 'ie7': True }
  3338     * reducewiki now also copies all attachments (we use that to make underlay
  3339       directory from moinmaster wiki's data_dir)
  3341   Fixes:  
  3342     * Fixed a typo in which led to a traceback instead of an
  3343       error message in case of disabled XSLT support.
  3344     * Fixed crash in twisted server if twisted.internet.ssl is not
  3345       available.
  3346     * Fixed wrong decoding of query string, enable wiki/?page_name urls
  3347       with non ascii page names.
  3348     * Fixed wrong display of non ascii attachments names in
  3349       RecentChanges and page revision history.
  3350     * Fixed a crash when trying to run standalone server on non posix os.
  3351     * Fixed highlight of misspelled words in Check Spelling action.
  3352     * Fixed case insensitivity problems on darwin (Mac OS X). See
  3353       MoinMoinBugs/MacHfsPlusCaseInsensitive
  3354     * Added RecentChanges (only the english one) to the pages getting
  3355       html_head_index headers
  3356     * text_html cache files written with this code will invalidate themselves
  3357       if they detect to be older than the wikiconfig. Note: you should remove
  3358       all old text_html cache files once after upgrading, they will then be
  3359       rebuilt automatically with the new code.
  3360     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/12_to_13_mig10_Walk
  3361     * Fixed the word_rule: a word like AAAbbAbb isn't teared into two parts
  3362       any more (was: AA<link>AbbAbb</link>)
  3363     * Fixed false positive InterWiki markup for languages like Finnish.
  3364       InterWiki links are only rendered if the left side has an appropriate
  3365       entry in the interwiki map, otherwise it is rendered as simple text.
  3366     * Fixed unicode error when uploding non-ascii file name using mod
  3367       python.
  3368     * Fixed error handling of wikirpc requests, should give more
  3369       correct errors and prevent no error output and blocking the
  3370       client in some cases.
  3371     * Fixed the "lost password" mail processing. If a user entered some email
  3372       address unknown to the system, he was not notified of this, but just got
  3373       a useless mail with no account data in it. Now the system directly tells
  3374       the user that he entered an unknown email address.
  3375     * Fixed SystemInfo, it now also lists parsers in data/plugin/parser dir.
  3376     * Fix error handling on failure, improved error display
  3377     * Fix error handling when importing plugins or importing modules
  3378       dynamically. The fix is not backward compatible with older plugins.
  3379     * Fix chart action, returns a page with error message when chart
  3380       can not be created.
  3381     * Fixed formatter usage in the ShowSmileys macro.
  3382     * Fixed updating pagelinks cache for [:page:text] or [wiki:Self:page text],
  3383       fixes display of LocalSiteMap and rendering of such links.
  3384     * Hopefully fixed urllib problems (esp. with py 2.4.2, but also before) by
  3385       using our own urllib wrapper that handles encoding/decoding to/from
  3386       unicode, see Also made a similar fix for making and parsing
  3387       query strings.
  3388     * Fixed MonthCalendar tooltips when containing special chars like quotes.
  3389     * Added html escaping for diff text for RSS feed with diff=1.
  3390     * The distance between page content beginning and the first = heading =
  3391       was much too much. Fixed.
  3393 Version 1.4:
  3395     We used that version number for an internal and early development version
  3396     for what will be called moin 2.0 at some time in the future.
  3397     There will never be a 1.4.x release.
  3400 Version 1.3.5 (2005-08-04, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-883)
  3402 Fixes:
  3403     * small CSS fix for rightsidebar theme
  3404     * applied some Debian patches (thanks to Jonas!):
  3405       * de i18n spelling fixes
  3406       * AttachFile fix, we strip CR in .draw files now
  3407       * when loading spellcheck dictionaries, we want utf-8, but we make
  3408         a 2nd try with iso-8859-1 encoding.
  3410 New Features:
  3412     * enabled using https with the Twisted server:
  3413       You need to use port 443, have PyOpenSSL (+ ssl libs it depends on)
  3414       installed and have some site key and certificate PEM files configured in
  3415       your file:
  3416       sslcert = ('/whereever/cert/sitekey.pem', '/whereever/cert/sitecert.pem')
  3419 Version 1.3.5rc1 (2005-07-31, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-865)
  3421 Fixes:
  3423     * Fixed security bug when acl of deleted page was ignored. See:
  3425     * AttachFile did not display the original filename plus there
  3426       was a confusion in input field labelling ('Rename to').
  3427     * Fixed shortcut link non-existent page detection.
  3428     * Fixed non-working bookmark function on python 2.2.x.
  3429     * Fixed wikirpc getPageInfo call on python 2.2.x.
  3430     * Fixed the failing import of plugins from the data/plugin/
  3431       directories if run in zipimport environments.
  3432     * Fixed traceback which occurred on negated searches.
  3433     * Fixed crash when trying to render error message on twisted, fast
  3434       cgi and modpy.
  3435     * Fixed error message with modpy, used to show wrong errors below
  3436       the real message.
  3437     * Fixed search and goto text fields for better compatibility with
  3438       dark themes and better control through css.
  3439     * Show an edit link if MissingPage is missing and a warning in the
  3440       server log.
  3441     * Fixed missing footer in the editor.
  3442     * Fixed indented (invalid) headings with broken links in table of
  3443       contents.
  3444     * Fixed crash when file name is too long, show standard error message.
  3445     * Save trail file in a safe way, should be enough for normal use.
  3446     * Fixed remember_last_visit user preferences option when show_trail
  3447       is not selected.
  3448     * Fixed the tests for Standalone, Twisted, FastCGI and Mod_Python.
  3449       Run with ?action=test from any page.
  3450     * Fixed rare bug when wrong search type was performed when pasting
  3451       search term in Safari.
  3452     * Fixed crash for custom formatters and dom_xml (which occurred if
  3453       smileys were in the page).
  3454     * Editor opens on double click in pages with single quote in the
  3455       name, like "Ben's Wiki".
  3456     * '/.' in page names are not replaced any more by '/(2e)'
  3457     * Fixed the long delays while saving pages using RequestCLI.
  3458     * Fixed variable expanding for users with non WikiName.
  3459     * Fixed MonthCalendar's calculation of "today" to use the user's
  3460       time zone setting.
  3461     * Fixed moin_dump script, use same configuration options as other
  3462       scripts.
  3463     * Fixed url_mappings to work in proxied setups and sent mails
  3464       again. Also fixed for image links. Thanks to JohannesBerg.
  3465     * Fixed page shown after saving a drawing (esp. when saved from a
  3466       sub page). Fixed help link for drawings.
  3467     * Fixed mig10 script to run on Python < 2.3.
  3468     * The twisted server defaulted to a socket timeout of 12 hours!
  3469       We reduced that to a more sane 10 minutes, that should still be more
  3470       than enough. This fixed the "too many open files" problem we
  3471       encountered quite often recently. Thanks to Helmut Grohne!
  3473 Other Changes:
  3475     * Added {hu} flag.
  3476     * Added cz, pt and pt-br i18n.
  3477     * We send a 404 http status code for nonexisting wiki pages now,
  3478       maybe this will repell some search engines from requesting gone
  3479       pages again and again. The wiki user still sees the MissingPage
  3480       wiki stuff, so a user usually won't notice this change.
  3481     * Return 500 error code on failure and exceptions.
  3482     * Added some more bot / leech tool user agent strings.
  3483     * Prevent page floating elements from floating out of the page over
  3484       the footer, in modern, rightsidebar and classic themes.
  3485     * Encode URLs in a safer way
  3486     * We allow usernames with ' character in them now (like Tim O'Brian).
  3487     * Added support for the new security flags in docutils 0.3.9.
  3488     * @MAILTO@ expands now to safer [[MailTo()]] macro.
  3489     * Clarified and i18ned lost password mails.
  3490     * Added 'TitleIndex' and 'SiteNavigation' (+ translation) to the
  3491       list of pages that use html_head_index (so that robots
  3492       "index,follow").  Please make sure to have either FindPage,
  3493       TitleIndex or SiteNavigation in your navi_bar or in your
  3494       page_front_page content if you want search engines to find all
  3495       your pages.
  3496     * Make it possible to send account data when being logged in (for
  3497       future reference or whatever purpose).
  3498     * Speed up when running with persistent servers, the wiki config
  3499       does only get loaded once and misc. stuff is being cached between
  3500       requests now.
  3501     * The unit tests are disabled when using multi threading, because
  3502       the wiki configuration is shared between diffrent threads.
  3503     * The main code path (using standalone server) of MoinMoin runs on
  3504       PyPy now.
  3505     * Formatters do automatically transform HTML to plain text if they are
  3506       called with raw HTML code.
  3507     * Using larger socket backlog on Standalone and FastCGI servers
  3508       should be more reliable on high load.
  3509     * We now strip leading path from attachments uploaded by IE (this is
  3510       a bug in IE, not in MoinMoin). Better use a sane browser, like Firefox.
  3511     * added "teleport" to the user agent blacklist
  3513 New Features:
  3515     * Integrated Lupy indexer for better search performance. It is disabled
  3516       by default as of 1.3.5 as it still has known issues.
  3517       See if you want to test it.
  3518     * Integrated MonthCalendar 2.1, with some new features:
  3519       * a mouseover bubble that shows first level headlines of the linked
  3520         day page
  3521       * all calendars with same pagename move when using cal navigation,
  3522         thanks to Oliver Graf
  3523       * included AnnualMonthlyCalendar patch of Jonathan Dietrich
  3524         (use [[MonthCalendar(Yearly,,,+1,,6,1)]] syntax for birthdays and
  3525         other annually repeating stuff)
  3526       Make sure you remove old MonthCalendar.* from data/plugin/macro so that
  3527       moin will use the new code in MoinMoin/macro/
  3528       Maybe also clear the text_html cache.
  3529     * Added the new XSLT parser and the DocBook parser. This should increase
  3530       the 4suite compatiblity. See HelpOnXmlPages for details.
  3531       It now should run on 4suite 1.0a4 and 1.0b1. Thanks to Henry Ho!
  3532     * Added the DocBook formatter. This will let you generate DocBook markup
  3533       by writing simple wiki pages. It needs PyXML.
  3534     * It is now possible to customize parts of the UserPreferences page in
  3535       your wikiconfig (changing defaults, disabling fields, removing fields):
  3536       * Use user_checkbox_* for the checkboxes.
  3537       * Use user_form_* for other fields.
  3538       * See MoinMoin/ for the built-in defaults.
  3539     * New standalone server classes: ThreadPoolServer using pool of
  3540       threads, ThreadingServer with thread limit and ForkingServer.
  3541     * New standalone server configuration options: serverClass,
  3542       threadLimit, requestQueueSize.
  3543     * Use "PythonOption Location" in mod_python setup to solve script_name
  3544       problems.
  3546 Developer notes:
  3548     * Theme can now override maxPagenameLength() method to control page
  3549       name shortening.
  3550     * A search Match now provides access to the full re match via
  3551       the re_match attribute (use to access groups of the match)
  3552     * Underlay is not managed by arch any more. The tree contains an
  3553       underlay tarball, and you should untar after you update from main.
  3554     * "make update-underlay" will untar underlay
  3555     * "make merge" will star-merge main into your tree
  3556     * "make test" will now create and run in a fresh testwiki instace
  3557     * "make clean" options added
  3558     * _tests module does not have a global request any more. To refer to
  3559       the current request in a test, use self.request.
  3560     * _tests.TestConfig class require a request in the constructor.
  3561     * "python tests/ test_module" will run only test_module
  3562     * request.cfg stays between requests (for persistent servers).
  3565 Version 1.3.4 (2005-03-13, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-666)
  3567 Fixes:
  3569     * Fixed ACL check in LikePages macro that caused links to unreadable 
  3570       pages to show.
  3571     * Fixed ACL check in newpage action.
  3572     * Fixed a security problem when admin policy defined in a custom
  3573       SecurityPolicy class was ignored.
  3574     * Fixed ACL check in action=show so that a user who may not read a page
  3575       also can't find out WHEN the protected page was updated.
  3576     * Workaround on Windows 95, 98, ME in order to clear the dircache.
  3577       This fixes some bugs related to an outdated page list and newly created
  3578       pages that did not appear immediately.
  3579     * Fixed decoding issues of page names on Windows, finally.
  3581     * Fixed traceback on IIS.
  3583     * Fixed wikirpc for standalone server.
  3584     * Other fixes (encoding and str/unicode data type related) to wikirpc
  3585       server, fixing some non-ascii issues hopefully.
  3586     * Fixed broken query strings for Standalone installations.
  3587     * Fixed backlinks - the result did not always show all links, often it 
  3588       showed too many irrelevant matches (MoinMoinBugs/BacklinksAreBroken).
  3589     * Fixed the acceptance of the show_hosts setting. Now you should be able
  3590       to hide any IP or host name from being published by MoinMoin by enabling
  3591       this option.
  3592     * Fixed wrong line endings on email messages.
  3593     * Fixed MoinMoinBugs/StandaloneUnquotesTooMuch.
  3594     * Fixed crash when trail file is missing.
  3595     * Fixed a traceback when searching for single ( or ).
  3596     * Added mig10 script to fix crashes with uncoverted edit-locks and file
  3597       attachments. Just use it as you did with mig1..mig9 before.
  3598     * Added mig11 script to add files to data/plugin (and below).
  3599     * added some fixes for the xslt parser (thanks to fanbanlo), it might be
  3600       still broken, but someone with deeper knowledge about xslt should fix it.
  3601     * Replaced image link with W3C's "html 4.01 compliance" icon by a simple
  3602       text link to avoid https: or config trouble.
  3603     * Catch OverflowError backtrace when illegal date strings (e.g. <1970 or
  3604       >2038) are fed to moinmoin's time routines. It will just output current
  3605       date / time in those cases.
  3606     * UserPreferences now also set a date_fmt preference and Date macro
  3607       honours it. You may have to reset your UserPreferences value for that.
  3608     * Fixed free parent and subpage links in interwiki notation.
  3610     * Fixed a traceback for invalid ReST markup.
  3611     * Fixed UnicodeError in SystemAdmin's Attachment Browser.
  3613 Other Changes:
  3615     * Optimized the IRC parser.
  3616     * Support for zipimport of the MoinMoin package. This allows you to use
  3617       py2exe and similar programs.
  3618     * Show the editor's name in the mail subject.
  3619     * Added the pragmas description and keywords. They will add <meta> headers
  3620       if used.
  3621     * Added MoinMoin/scripts/xmlrpc-tools/ example script, useful
  3622       as a starting point for importing data using wiki xmlrpc.
  3623     * Optimised display on Opera browser.
  3625 New features:
  3627     * The search modifier "linkto:" was introduced. You can use it to search
  3628       for links.
  3629     * The NewPage macro now can take a PageTemplate parameter, see HelpOnMacros.
  3630     * New config settings (so you don't need to edit any more):
  3631       xmlrpc_putpage_enabled = 0 (if 1, enables writing to arbitrary page names)
  3632       xmlrpc_putpage_trusted_only = 1 (if 0, doesn't require users to be
  3633        authenticated by http auth - DANGEROUS, DO NOT SET TO 0!!!)
  3634     * Added support for Digest and NTLM authentication with CGI (e.g. if you
  3635       use those Apache modules)
  3636     * The datetime string accepted by Date and DateTime macros was extended to
  3637       accept a timezone specification, so now +/-HHMM is also valid, e.g.:
  3638       2005-03-06T15:15:57Z (UTC, same as +0000)
  3639       2005-03-06T15:15:57+0000 (UTC)
  3640       2005-03-06T16:15:57+0100 (same time given as local time for time zone
  3641                                 with offset +0100, that is CET, e.g. Germany)
  3642       2005-03-06T10:15:57-0500 (same time given as local time for time zone
  3643                                 with offset -0500, EST, US Eastern Std. Time)
  3644       The values given as macro argument will be transformed to UTC internally
  3645       and then adapted again according to viewing user's UserPreferences, so
  3646       the user will see the same moment in time but shown in his local time
  3647       zone's time (at least if he set his UserPreferences correctly and didn't
  3648       forget changing them twice a year for DST and non-DST).
  3649     * Readded (now optional) editlink footer to Include macro. Add
  3650       ',editlink' to call to enable this.
  3651     * star "smileys" e.g. {*}{*}{*}{o}{o}
  3654 Version 1.3.3 (2005-01-24, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-595)
  3656 Fixes:
  3658     * fixed ACL security problem in search
  3659     * fix for IIS with CGI allowing page names that contain chars
  3660       that are not in the system code page
  3661     * fixed MoinEditorBackup revisions to start with 1 now
  3662     * improved page locking ('current' file)
  3663     * Unittests (normally shown at end of action=test output) are currently
  3664       disabled for everything except CGI, because they only work reliably with
  3665       CGI, giving wrong results for other request methods.
  3668 Version 1.3.2 (2005-01-23, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-587)
  3670 Fixes:
  3672     * ACL bugfix for deleted pages with ACL protection.
  3673     * ACL bugfix for "Default" acl.
  3674     * Fixed updating of groups and dicts
  3675     * Python 2.2.x related fixes (worked on 2.3+)
  3676       * Fixed traceback in RecentChanges.
  3677       * Fixed traceback with links browser.
  3678     * Fixed 0 revision display in 'Show changes'.
  3679     * Fixed traceback in Antispam which occurred when it could not connect
  3680       to MoinMaster. Log the errors to stderr or error.log.
  3681     * Fixed bug in Page init (no date, use rev). Fixes problem with
  3682       #deprecated PI.
  3683     * Fixed empty lists in empty search results.
  3684     * Cosmetic fix for modern theme (when viewed with Internet Explorer).
  3685     * Fixed migration 9 script, do not drop newline, do not drop error.log, 
  3686       note about missing error.log.
  3687     * Fixed script, keep ending newline on revisions.
  3688     * Show headings and macro content in correct direction when mixing content 
  3689       in several directions in the same page and using caching.
  3690     * Fixed bug in standalone re farmconfig.
  3691     * Fixed DOS condition in antispam code.
  3692     * Use smaller margin in print mode to get better results with 
  3693       Mozilla/Firefox.
  3694     * Fixed some user input escaping issues.
  3695     * Fixed a problem when one wiki plugin override other wikis plugins in 
  3696       same farm.
  3697     * Fixed some broken tests.
  3698     * Fixed recursive include in pstats.
  3699     * Fixed bug in standalone - HTTP result code was 200 even when the access
  3700       was forbidden.
  3701     * Fixed traceback when trying to login with non-ascii password.
  3702     * Fixed traceback when xml is not available, reported on Python 2.2.?
  3703     * Fixed slideshow to show slides in sorted order again.
  3704     * Fixed serving multiple wikis on same IP/different ports with twisted and
  3705       farmconfig.
  3706     * It is possible to run with data_underlay_dir = None for special
  3707       application, but be aware that the wiki won't be usable unless you have
  3708       at least some of the system pages from underlay/ available.
  3709     * Files with Unicode characters in their filename are possible now.
  3710     * Bugfix for broken [:page#anchor:text] links.
  3711     * Workaround an instability of the gdchart module leading to
  3712       stalled servers etc.
  3713     * Fixed some event-log decoding issues that affect charts rendering.
  3715 Other changes:
  3717     * Major speed improvement over 1.3.1. Many times faster title search,
  3718       creating new page, opening page editor and any operation that list pages.
  3719       See
  3720     * Improved README.migration.
  3721     * Cleaner design for login/register interface, login is always the default
  3722       button when the user click Enter.
  3723     * If there are problems found in the configuration, log the error
  3724       and display helpful error messages in the browser.
  3725     * More forgiving unicode configuration policy, you must use the u'string' 
  3726       format only for unicode values.
  3727     * Added profiling to CGI.
  3728     * The content of is similar to now.
  3729     * Unexpected errors while loading cache files are logged.
  3730     * i18n for icon ALT tags.
  3731     * Include request initialization code in the profile in standalone server.
  3732     * When creating new theme, style sheets are inherited correctly, no need
  3733       to override style sheets just to get them working.
  3734     * Many times faster plugin system. Typical pages are about 35% faster, 
  3735       pages with many plugins can be many times faster. 
  3736     * Spiders are allowed to fetch attachments.
  3737     * Old user files containing password hash encoded in pre 1.3 charset
  3738       are auto repaired on first login.
  3739     * data_dir defaults to './data', underlay_data_dir to './underlay' now.
  3740       It is a good idea to replace those by absolute pathes in
  3741     * Renamed "Refresh" to "Delete Cache" - it was misused by users. The action 
  3742       was also moved into the action menu in the modern and rightsidebar themes.
  3743     * Added a workaround for TableOfContents missing some links by making it
  3744       uncacheable via a "time" dependency.
  3745     * Removed interwiki icon and title attribute for wiki:Self:... links.
  3746     * Unittests (normally shown at end of action=test output) are currently
  3747       disabled because they worked unreliably, giving wrong results sometimes.
  3749 New features:
  3751     * Create new pages easily using configurable interface and page templates 
  3752       with the new NewPage macro.
  3753     * ReStructuredText (rst) support is built-in now. See HelpOnParsers.
  3754     * New experimental feature in - each interface may 
  3755       specify a port: ''. Without a port, the port option
  3756       is used.
  3758 API changes:
  3760     * For a complete list of changes, see MoinMoin:ApiChanges.
  3761     * wikiutil.importPlugin's first argument is now a wiki config instance 
  3762       (request.cfg) and there is no path keyword.
  3763     * Wiki plugins always override MoinMoin plugins. wikiutil.importPlugin
  3764       implements this override.
  3765     * util.pysupport.importName does not accept path - you should call 
  3766       it with correct module name, e.g '' for 
  3767       wiki plugins, or ''. 
  3768     * wikiutil.extensionPlugin was renamed to wikiPlugins and it gets config 
  3769       instance instead of path.
  3770     * New function wikiutil.importWikiPlugin used to import wiki plugins 
  3771       using a cache in a thread safe way.
  3772     * New config option config.use_threads is used to activate thread 
  3773       safe code.
  3774     * New keyword arguments for getPageList, enable 10X faster operation
  3775       for common cases by controlling page filtering.
  3776     * New up to 100X times faster getPageCount
  3779 Version 1.3.1 (2004-12-13, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-434)
  3781 Fixes:
  3783     * Fixed "Error Cyclic usage" crash when user had Italian (it), Korean
  3784       (ko), Serbian (sr) or Vietnamese (vi) as user interface language.
  3785     * Fall back to en (instead of crashing) when user uses a language moin
  3786       does not support / does not support any more (like pt,sv,fi,sr).
  3787     * In 1.3.0, people accidentally put iso-8859-1 chars into wiki configs,
  3788       but those where expected to be pure utf-8 and thus it crashed.
  3789       Fixed by using unicode strings (varname = u'whatever'), a matching
  3790       encoding setting (see top of script comment) and, when decoding strings,
  3791       using decode to ASCII with replace mode (this replaces non-ASCII chars,
  3792       but at least it won't crash - and you get a warning to better use
  3793       Unicode strings).
  3794     * Fixed long time broken table formatting. ||<style="see css spec" a||b||
  3795       Now even generates valid HTML! The old markup for align, valign, width,
  3796       bgcolor still works, but synthesizes style attribute data.
  3797     * SystemAdmin macro shows attachments of ALL pages now.
  3798     * Users without write acl rights will be able to see attachments again and
  3799       also have AttachFile action in menu.
  3800     * Fixed wrong match count in search results, find all matches in page 
  3801       titles, show all matches in contents in some rare cases.
  3802     * Run about 200% faster with long running processes (standalone, Twisted), 
  3803       about 20% faster with cgi, by better internal data handling in wikidicts.
  3804     * On SF, the dict files use utf-8 encoding now. We included them also in
  3805       distribution, see contrib/dict/.
  3806     * Fixed permissions to shared template stuff.
  3807     * Speeded up search, fixed wrong match counts.
  3808     * Speeded up internal data handling (wikidicts).
  3809     * Fixed rare unicode error after deleting a page (reported only on SuSE
  3810       Linux 9.0 / Python 2.3.0).
  3811     * Fixed file permissions of files in the data dir.  
  3812     * Fixed some cosmetic problems in migration scripts and use sys.path.insert
  3813       to get latest moin code when executing them.
  3815 Other Changes:
  3817     * Improved docs, system and help pages.
  3818     * Updated translation files.
  3820 Known Bugs:
  3822     * Internet Explorer renders our HTML/CSS in a suboptimal way.
  3823       (MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/InternetExplorer)
  3824       Workaround: use a non-broken browser like FireFox / Mozilla.
  3825       Fixed in MoinMoin 1.3.2.
  3826     * Passwords using non-ascii do not work.
  3827       (MoinMoin:MoinMoinBugs/NonAsciiPasswordsBroken)
  3828     * The TOC macro is broken partly.

  3834 Version 1.3.0 (2004-12-06, Revision moin--main--1.3--patch-400)
  3836     As you see from the length of the 1.3 changes below, 1.3 is a major(!)
  3837     upgrade. We could have also named it "2.0", but we decided against.
  3838     So take the time for reading the informations thoroughly and do the
  3839     migration exactly as we tell you - this is no 5 minutes upgrade!
  3841     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3842     !!! We heavily changed configuration, data encoding, dir layout:    !!!
  3843     !!!  * the default encoding changed to utf-8.                       !!!
  3844     !!!  * also, we changed the escaping for special chars to %XX%YY in !!!
  3845     !!!    URL and (xxyy) in file system.                               !!!
  3846     !!!  * layout of data dir changed completely                        !!!
  3847     !!! If you upgrade an existing wiki, you must run the migration     !!!
  3848     !!! scripts or you will get data corruption or other problems.      !!!
  3849     !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3851     HINT: Upgrading your wiki - critical information
  3853       If you are NOT starting from scratch, you MUST convert your existing
  3854       data - see README.migration for details.
  3856       If you use ##language: xx comments on your OWN pages, you should also run
  3857       repair_language script. Not needed for help/system pages as we already
  3858       have done that for you.
  3860       MoinMoin uses Unicode internally now (UCS-2 with 16 bits or UCS-4 with
  3861       32 bits, depending on your Python installation). The encoding used
  3862       for page files and html output is set by config.charset.
  3864       Moin 1.3 uses utf-8 encoding only, there is NO SUPPORT for using a
  3865       charset different from utf-8 with 1.3. If you try, you are on your own.
  3867     Directory layout
  3869       Directory layout was heavily changed. Each page now is a directory,
  3870       containing page revisions, attachments, cache files and edit-log.
  3872       You can delete a page or move a page from one wiki to another
  3873       easily. Look at the wiki/data directory to see.
  3875       Example:
  3876         old: data/text/FrontPage
  3877         new: data/pages/FrontPage/revisions/00000042
  3878              data/pages/FrontPage/current (contains: 00000042)
  3879         old: data/backup/FrontPage.xxxxxxxx
  3880         new: data/pages/FrontPage/revisions/00000023
  3882       For cleaning up cache files, use MoinMoin/scripts/ 
  3883       (see comments in script).
  3885    Python / Libs
  3887       * For using RSS, you need to have PyXML installed:
  3888         Python 2.4*   -> PyXML 0.8.4 (cvs version)
  3889         Python 2.3.x  -> PyXML 0.8.3
  3890         Python 2.2.2+ -> ???
  3891         This will also make "Live Bookmarks" of Mozilla Firefox working.
  3892         New: if you don't have PyXML installed, the RSS icon on RecentChanges
  3893         will not be displayed any more. Python with no PyXML installed
  3894         generates invalid RSS XML.
  3896    Page names handling
  3898       * Handling of special characters in file names changed from _xx format
  3899         to (xx...) format.
  3900       * In URLs, moin now uses %xx%yy quoting, (because this is supported by 
  3901         browsers), and sub pages use "/" instead of the ugly "_2f".
  3902       * Underscore character "_" is used now as a space character " " both 
  3903         in file names and URLs. " " and "_" will be handled equivalent at most
  3904         places in the future (represented as "_", rendered as " ").
  3905       * To prevent wiki abuse and user typing errors, page names are normalized 
  3906         in URLs, query strings, the "go" box and when renaming pages. This 
  3907         include leading, trailing and multiple slashes and white space. Certain 
  3908         invisible unicode characters are removed from page names.
  3909       * Group page names are restricted even more, any non unicode alpha-numeric
  3910         character is removed. This is done to enable changing acl syntax in 
  3911         the future. The restriction might be loosen on future versions.
  3912       * You can edit config.page_invalid_chars_regex to control which characters
  3913         are allowed in page names (Changing it is not supported).
  3914       * When you enter page name, it is normalized and you are redirected to
  3915         the normalized page, or if nothing left (e.g '/////'), to FrontPage.
  3916       * When renaming a page to a name that can be normalized to an empty string,
  3917         the new page name will be "EmptyName" and the user will not get an
  3918         error message.
  3920    Underlay directory
  3922      * Pages (especially system and help pages) are now located in an underlay
  3923        directory (data_underlay_dir). You will see the pages there if they are
  3924        NOT covered (overlayed) by a page in the normal pages directory
  3925        (as set using data_dir).
  3926        MAKE SURE THAT data_underlay_dir IS CORRECT OR YOU WILL SEE MANY EMPTY
  3927        PAGES ONLY IN A NEW WIKI.
  3928      * If you edit a page that is shown from underlay directory, it will be
  3929        copied to the normal page directory on save (copy-on-write).
  3930      * You can use one copy of the underlay directory shared by many
  3931        wiki instances. Each wiki will then have only your local, self-made
  3932        wiki pages in its data directory, and only system and help pages in the
  3933        single, shared underlay directory - this simplifies upgrades a lot.
  3934      * It is recommended to keep your underlay system and help pages immutable
  3935        using acl, so you can upgrade your wiki easily. The default help and
  3936        system pages already have those ACLs (using MoinPagesEditorGroup).
  3937      * Do not forget to remove your old help and system pages after migrating
  3938        your wiki. We don't provide a script for that as that would be
  3939        dangerous for edited pages. Just use some file manager (e.g. mc) to
  3940        clean the data/pages/ directory. As soon as you have removed the
  3941        system pages there, you will see the new pages in the underlay dir.
  3942        See the EditedSystemPages page for a list of pages that exist in both
  3943        data and underlay directory (use this page as admin!).
  3945        When updating from 1.2 or lower to 1.3 or higher, you will want to
  3946        clean out the copies of the system pages in your {{{wiki/data}}}
  3947        directory. All of these pages will now reside in the underlay
  3948        directory. If you have system pages from 1.2 or lower in your
  3949        wiki/data/ directory, they will overshadow the more up-to-date
  3950        documentation. This can be done using the following manual procedure:
  3951        1. You have just converted from 1.2 or lower to post-1.3.
  3952        2. Go to your wiki's EditedSystemPages.
  3953        3. Find all the pages that are MoinMoin system or help pages. You will
  3954           know if it is one of those pages because it is not your page.
  3955        4. Check if it is okay to delete by either:
  3956           1. Using the this page "info" link and check the Revision History to
  3957              see if it is greater than 1. If so, there are modifications, so do
  3958              not delete the page and evaluate the modifications to see if they
  3959              are necessary.
  3960           2. Using your file browser (Windows Explorer, etc) to go to your
  3961              wiki/data/<<systemPage>>/revisions/ directory and to see if there
  3962              are no modifications. If there are, do not delete the page and
  3963              evaluate the modifications to see if they are necessary.
  3964        5. Delete that wiki/data/<<systemPage>> using your file browser.
  3966     Multiple languages
  3968       * New file name quoting method allow 50% longer page names in languages
  3969         that use more than one byte per character, like Hebrew, Korean etc.
  3970       * Configuration file uses 'utf-8' encoding now. Certain values that are
  3971         marked with [Unicode] can use any character in your language. Examples 
  3972         are page names in navi_bar, page types regular expressions and site name.
  3973       * For configuration examples adopted to your language, check ConfigMarket 
  3974         in the MoinMoin wiki.
  3975       * The system and help pages that come with moin are now in utf-8.
  3976       * MissingPage system page localized, should display in your language.
  3977       * We did many i18n (translation) updates.
  3978       * CSS file use utf-8 encoding. User css is also expected to be utf-8.
  3979         This is relevant only if you use non-ASCII values in the CSS file.
  3980       * config.upperletters and config.lowerletters were removed.
  3981         We now use a pre-made ucs-2 spanning set and you usually don't have to
  3982         change it. See MoinMoin/util/ if you're interested.
  3983       * ACL works with any user name or group name in any language, even names 
  3984         with spaces.
  3985       * Now you can use any charset in config.charset. Note: only utf-8 is 
  3986         a supported configuration!
  3987       * Improved url handling, now creating pages directly from the browser 
  3988         url box with non-ascii names works in most cases, even when 
  3989         config.charset is not utf-8.
  3990       * When using non-utf-8 config.charset, characters in URLs that does
  3991         fit in the charsets are replaced with "?" (instead of crashing).
  3992       * All themes and most macros and actions are Right to Left friendly.
  3993         Full RTL support planned for 1.3 release.
  3994       * If page language is specified with #language processing instruction
  3995         the page is displayed in the correct direction. Pages without
  3996         language are displayed using the wiki default_lang.
  3998     Multiple configurations
  4000       * You can run multiple wikis from the same wiki directory or server. 
  4001         For example, you can run one Twisted server that serve multiple wikis, 
  4002         instead of running multiple servers. Samples of the new configuration
  4003         are supplied in wiki/config/*.
  4004       * You can't just use your old file. It is now called
  4005 and the config variables now have to be in a class
  4006         "Config" and that class must inherit from
  4007         MoinMoin.multiconfig.DefaultConfig - see the provided
  4008         sample for details.
  4009         This is very useful, e.g. you could derive a GermanConfig from
  4010         DefaultConfig. After that, you can derive configs for wikiA and wikiB
  4011         from that GermanConfig.
  4012       * contains a mapping attribute called "wikis" with pairs of
  4013         wikiconfig module name and regular expression. The regular expression
  4014         is matched against the URL of the request and the first matching entry
  4015         determines the config module to be imported by MoinMoin.
  4016       * If you use's "wikis" mapping, then any wiki has a private
  4017         config module, named after the wiki - e.g. wiki named moinmoin would
  4018         use
  4019       * If you only have a single wiki, you do not need just make 
  4020         a and it will be used no matter what URL is requested. 
  4021       * There is one common global "config" that holds sitewide settings (like
  4022         umask or charset) - you do not need to change settings there.
  4023         This file is located in the MoinMoin code: MoinMoin/
  4025     General configuration
  4027       * SecurityPolicy now uses "write" instead of "edit" (so it is may.write
  4028         now). This is to get it in sync with ACLs.
  4029       * SecurityPolicy now automatically can use everything in acl_rights_valid.
  4030       * There is a new config option "config_check_enabled". It will warn about
  4031         any unknown variable name (probably typo) to stderr or error.log. 
  4032         If something doesn't work at all and changing the config does no 
  4033         difference, switch it on and look at the error message. 
  4034       * The sample config file comes with config_check_enabled = 1. If you 
  4035         introduce additional variables yourself, you definitely want to switch 
  4036         that check off or it will fill your log.
  4037       * If you define "page_front_page" variable, this name will show in the 
  4038         navigation bar now, instead of the default "FrontPage".
  4040     New search engine
  4042      * Full text and title search do support multiple search terms now - 
  4043        see HelpOnSearching for details.
  4044      * Regular expressions are still supported but have to be turned on per
  4045        search term. Search terms in macros using regular expressions will have
  4046        to be fixed.
  4047      * The URL interface of the search engine has also changed. Links that 
  4048        point directly to search actions may be broken.
  4050     User names
  4052       * User names can not use group names, even if ACLs are not enabled.
  4053         This will prevent error later, if you start to use acl in the future
  4054         (acl is going to be mandatory in 1.5).
  4055       * User names are not restricted any more to only CamelCase. 
  4056       * To prevent imposing as other users, leading, trailing and multiple 
  4057         whitespace in user names is not allowed. Only Unicode alpha numeric 
  4058         characters are allowed, with optional one space character between 
  4059         words.
  4060       * When a user name with a group name or "bad" name is trying to 
  4061         access the wiki, he is redirected to the UserPreferences page and 
  4062         asked to create a new account.
  4063       * When trying to login or create a new account with a bad name, 
  4064         correct error message is displayed in all cases.   
  4066     CGI
  4068       * You can not use your old moin.cgi file, as we removed 
  4069         (was deprecated since 1.2). Copy the new file from the server dir.     
  4071     Moin servers - Twisted and standalone
  4073       * Configuration self checking on startup. Will raise an error in case
  4074         of bad configuration or non-accessible directories.
  4075       * Both use shorter and identical configuration options.
  4076       * Server scripts contain detailed comments and examples.
  4077       * Configuration defaults changed to fit most users.
  4078       * There is memory profiler option for debugging, switched off by default.
  4079       * If you perform a standard install, server scripts should run out
  4080         of the box or with minimal change.
  4082     Twisted server
  4084       * All code moved into the new server package, the server script
  4085         contains only configuration options.
  4086       * Listen to more than one interface with "interfaces" list.
  4087       * Code updated to new Twisted API.
  4088       * Use mointwisted script to start and stop the server, using 
  4089         "mointwisted start" and "mointwisted stop".
  4090       * The Twisted server runs as daemon by default.
  4091       * All moin Twisted files are called now mointwisted instead of 
  4092         moin_twisted.
  4093       * Fixed getting username from Twisted request (http auth)
  4095     Standalone server
  4097       * Configuration moved from to
  4098       * If run as root, you can set both user and group for the server.
  4099       * Can use logfile instead of logging to stderr.
  4100       * Fixed missing unquoting of query string (caused problems in rare cases).
  4102     mod_python server
  4104      * moin_modpy server files renamed to moinmodpy.
  4106     Wiki Markup
  4108      * '''strong''', ''em'' and __underline__ have now paragraph scope. You can
  4109        set these attributes on words level. For multiple paragraphs, wrap each 
  4110        with needed markup.
  4111      * If you leave unclosed ''', '' and __  markup, its is closed when the 
  4112        paragraph ends.
  4114     User interface
  4116      * Due to many changes in CSS files, the wiki may look "broken" until
  4117        your reload once or twice, or empty your browser cache.
  4118      * The "Send mail notification" checkbox is replaced by "Trivial change"
  4119        checkbox. The default behavior did not change - regular edit is not
  4120        a trivial change, and mail will be sent to subscribes. If you check
  4121        trivial change, mail will be sent only to users who selected to 
  4122        get trivial changes in their user preferences.
  4123      * New theme "modern" has been added, and used as default theme. 
  4124      * classic and rightsidebar improved.
  4125      * viewonly theme removed, as any theme can be use now as viewonly
  4126        by using #acl All:read in the wikiconfig.
  4127      * All themes use new navibar, displaying both wiki links, user links
  4128        and the current page.
  4129      * navibar and pagetrail use now shortened page names, so very long
  4130        names does not break the interface visually.
  4131      * All themes have improved search interface at the top of the window.
  4132      * Only avaiable actions are displayed, so most situations when a user
  4133        try to do something he can't do are prevented.
  4134      * When creating a new page, no action is available until the page 
  4135        is created. You can't attach files to non-existing page any more.
  4136      * Non registered users get a "login" link. Registered uses get
  4137        "username" link to their home page, and "user preferences" link.
  4138      * Messages more clear using bold type, designed by css.
  4139      * Few useless messages removed (but there are many more)
  4140      * Default wiki logo uses the wiki name instead of the MoinMoin troll 
  4141        logo.
  4143     Other fixes and changes
  4145      * Most generated html code is valid "html 4 strict". There are still
  4146        some problems that still have to be fixed, mainly macros, table
  4147        attributes, and inline markup crossing (<a><b></a></b>).
  4148      * WantedPages can include and exclude system pages, which makes it 
  4149        much more useful.
  4150      * Fixed a bug in TitleIndex where not all system pages are excluded.    
  4151      * RenamePage action now renames everything, including backups, page
  4152        history, attachments. It does not change toplevel editlog, though.
  4153        After you rename a page, you are redirected to the new page.
  4154      * Syntax colorization supports more languages (Java, C++, Pascal)
  4155      * Inline: display of attachments was extended. A Parser now knows which
  4156        extensions it can handle.
  4157      * TableOfContents and Include macros now cooperate a bit better. There
  4158        are still problems with multiple Includes of the same page.
  4159      * Excluded actions at bottom of page are not displayed any more.   
  4160      * Editor: removed the columns size setting, just using 100% of browser
  4161        window width (it didn't work because of that anyway). Also removed that
  4162        "reduce editor size" link at top of editor as you would lose your
  4163        changes when using it.
  4164      * Removed the option to choose text smileys instead of images, this made
  4165        more trouble than it was worth. The text version is still given in ALT
  4166        attribute.
  4167      * Moved stuff from contribution/ to MacroMarket page on MoinMoin wiki
  4168      * Some nasty people try to use a running moin as a proxy (at least they
  4169        did on, maybe due to the magic port
  4170        number). We changed the code to check for that and just return 403
  4171        in that case. Moin can not be used as a proxy anyway.
  4172      * moin.cgi?test was removed in favor of a new buildin test
  4173        action. It works for all deployments, just use ?action=test.
  4174      * Sending mail does use tls if server supports it.
  4176     3rd party developer notes
  4178      * Themes should be now sub class of MoinMoin.theme.ThemeBase. Sub
  4179        classes will get automatically all new improved user interface
  4180        elements for free.
  4181      * Theme authors should update their theme for 1.3. Some keys removed
  4182        from them dict. See ThemeBase class in MoinMoin/theme/ 
  4183      * Actions writers should call request.setContentLangauge with the 
  4184        correct language used by the action. This enable themes and other
  4185        code to use correct direction.
  4186      * The Formatter interface was changed. Formatters and parsers using 
  4187        the formatter interface have to be adjusted.
  4188      * started deprecation of Processors: they are still recognized, but
  4189        implementors should start to rewrite their Processors as Parsers.
  4190        A processor with the same name as a parser in a pre #! section is
  4191        currently preferred. This will change in the next release.
  4193     Deprecation notes
  4195      * Processors are deprecated, see section above.
  4197      * Using the cookie (or the login url with ID) only and not setting (or
  4198        setting and not remembering) your email/password in UserPreferences
  4199        is DEPRECATED. Those quite unsecure methods will likely be dropped
  4200        in next moin version.
  4202      * Operating with acl_enabled = 0 is also DEPRECATED. Due to some other
  4203        improvements planned, we will have to operate with ACLs enabled ONLY
  4204        in a future moin version, so this setting will likely be dropped.
  4205        So clean up your user accounts (see and switch ACLs
  4206        on NOW.
  4207        There are no drawbacks, so you will like it. Having ACLs enabled
  4208        doesn't mean you really have to USE them on wiki pages...
  4210      * allow_extended_names = 0 is deprecated (default was/is 1).
  4211        Future versions will be able to use extended names (aka free links) in
  4212        any case and the config setting will be removed.
  4214      * allow_subpages = 0 is deprecated (default was/is 1).
  4215        Future versions will be able to use subpages in any case and the config
  4216        setting will be removed.
  4218      * attachments = {...} - we would like to remove that setting because of
  4219        several reasons:
  4220        * when not being extremely careful, this can easily lead to security
  4221          problems (like when uploading a .php exploit and then executing it
  4222          by accessing it directly via web server)
  4223        * makes code more complicated - code that we want to change completely
  4224          in next version
  4225        If you need that feature, speak up now and tell us your reasons WHY you
  4226        need it.
  4229 Version 1.2.4 (2004-10-23, Revision 1.187)
  4231 This will probably be the last 1.2.x release as we are soon doing release
  4232 candidates for 1.3 release (with big internal changes) and are expecting
  4233 release 1.3 in december 2004.
  4235 Fixes:
  4236     * fixed "None" pagename bug in fullsearch/titlesearch
  4237     * fixed projection CSS usage
  4238     * the compiled page is removed when a page is deleted, so no ghost page
  4239       appears after deletion
  4240     * fixed AbandonedPages day-break problem
  4241     * fixed [[GetVal(WikiDict,key)]]
  4242     * the msg box is now outside content div on PageEditor, too
  4243     * privacy fix for email notifications: you don't see other email addresses
  4244       in To: any more. mail_from is now also used for To: header field, but
  4245       we don't really send email to that address.
  4246     * privacy fix for /MoinEditorBackup pages that were made on previews of
  4247       pages that were not saved in the end
  4248     * fix double content div on PageEditor preview
  4250 Other changes:
  4251     * workaround for broken Microsoft Internet Explorer, the page editor now
  4252       stops expanding to the right (e.g. with rightsidebar theme).
  4253       Nevertheless it is a very good idea to use a non-broken and more secure
  4254       browser like Mozilla, Firefox or Opera!
  4256     * from import SecurityPolicy in your
  4257 will protect your wiki from at least the known spammers.
  4258       See MoinMoin:AntiSpamGlobalSolution for details.
  4260     * xmlrpc plugin for usage logging, currently used for antispam accesses
  4262     * (re-)added configurable meta tags:
  4263         * html_head_queries = '''<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">\n'''
  4264         * html_head_posts   = '''<meta name="robots" content="noindex,nofollow">\n'''
  4265         * html_head_index   = '''<meta name="robots" content="index,follow">\n'''
  4266         * html_head_normal  = '''<meta name="robots" content="index,nofollow">\n'''
  4268     * i18n updates/fixes
  4270     * New UserPreferences switch:
  4271       you may subscribe to trivial changes (when you want to be notified about ALL
  4272       changes to pages, even if the author deselected to send notifications).
  4274     * New AttachList and AttachInfo macros - thanks to Nigel Metheringham and
  4275       Jacob Cohen.
  4277 Version 1.2.3 (2004-07-21, Revision 1.186)
  4279 Fixes:
  4280     * fixed NameError "UnpicklingError" in
  4281     * fixed version number in moin.spec
  4282     * reverts done by bots or leechers
  4283       There was a bad, old bug that triggered if you did not use ACLs. In that
  4284       case, moin used some simple (but wrong and incomplete) function to
  4285       determine what a user (or bot) may do or may not do. The function is now
  4286       fixed to allow only read and write to anon users, and only delete and
  4287       revert to known users additionally - and disallow everything else.
  4288     * avoid creation of unneccessary pages/* directories
  4289     * removed double content divs in general info and history info pages
  4290     * fixed wiki xmlrpc getPageHTML
  4291     * fixed rightsidebar logout URL, also fixed top banner to link to FrontPage
  4292     * use config.page_front_page and .page_title_index for robots meta tag
  4293       (whether it uses index,follow or index,nofollow), not hardcoded english
  4294       page names
  4295     * ACL security fix for PageEditor, thanks to Dr. Pleger for reporting
  4296     * default options for new users are same as for anon users
  4298 Version 1.2.2 (2004-06-06, Revision 1.185)
  4300 Fixes:
  4301     * python related:
  4302      * own copy of difflib removed
  4303        Until moin 1.2.1 we had our own copy of python 2.2.3's difflib coming
  4304        with moin. This was to work around some problems with broken older 2.2
  4305        python installations. We removed this now because if you have py 2.3,
  4306        there is even a better difflib coming with python (and that fixes an
  4307        extremely slow diff calculation happening in some rare cases).
  4308        So the good news is that when you run python 2.3, you don't need to do
  4309        anything and it will run great. If you run python 2.2.3, it will mostly
  4310        work good and you also don't need to do anything. The bad news is that
  4311        if you run an old and broken 2.2 installation (2.2.1, maybe 2.2.2) you
  4312        will have to fix it on your own (just copy from python 2.2.3
  4313        over to your python 2.2.x installation).
  4314        But better upgrade to python 2.3 (for debian woody, there's a backport),
  4315        as 2.3 generally runs better and faster than 2.2.
  4316      * scripts changed to use #!/usr/bin/env python (not /usr/bin/python2.2)
  4318     * user accounts and ACLs:
  4319      * we now require the user to specify a password for a new account (you
  4320        were not able to login without a password anyway)
  4321      * it is not allowed any more to create user accounts with user names
  4322        matching config.page_group_regex - please check manually that you do
  4323        not already have such users existing (like a user named "AdminGroup"):
  4324        cd data/user ; grep name=.*Group *  # there should be no output!
  4325      * subscription email sending now honours ACLs correctly
  4327     * markup / rendering / user interface fixes:
  4328      * fixed merging multiple lines indented by the same amount of blanks
  4329      * ## comments don't break tables in two parts
  4330      * added a "remove bookmark" link to RecentChanges
  4331      * fixed action=titleindex (added \n after each entry)
  4333     * RSS fixes:
  4334      * non-ASCII characters should work now
  4335      * RSS feed (Recentchanges?action=rss_rc) gives UTC timestamps now
  4336      * removed attribute breaking RSS feed on RecentChanges
  4338     * better email generation:
  4339      * if you use python >=2.2.2, we add a Message-ID header to emails
  4340      * if you use python 2.2.1, there is no email.Header. Instead of crashing
  4341        (like previous moin 1.2.x releases), we just use the subject "as is" in
  4342        that case. If it is not ASCII, this is not standards compliant.
  4343      * If you have >=2.2.2 it will use email.Header to make standards compliant
  4344        subject lines.
  4345      * use config.mail_from as sender address when sending "lost my password"
  4346        emails
  4348     * file attachments:
  4349      * fixed for standalone server
  4350      * attachment URLs (when handled by moin) don't include server name
  4351      * fixed some wrong &amp;amp; in html src
  4353     * better themeability:
  4354      * some entries in dict "d" where only present in header theme calls, some
  4355        only in footer theme calls. Now almost all is present in both calls.
  4356      * added some missing "content" divs so sidebar themes look better
  4358     * fixed some crashes producing backtraces:
  4359      * no IOError when diffing against deleted page
  4360      * no backtrace in xml footnote generation
  4361      * no SystemInfo crash when no editlog exists in new wikis
  4362      * xmlrpc.getRecentChanges fixed
  4364     * MoinMoin.util.filesys.rename is now a wrapper around os.rename that
  4365       fixes os.rename on broken win32 api semantics
  4367 Other Changes:
  4368     * saving traffic and load by improved robot meta tag generation:
  4369      * "noindex,nofollow" on queries and POSTs
  4370      * "index,follow" on FrontPage and TitleIndex (give robots a chance ;))
  4371      * "index,nofollow" on all other pages (hopefully saving lots of senseless
  4372        requests for page?action=...) 
  4373      * removed config.html_head_queries (was used for same stuff)
  4374     * added russian i18n (utf-8)
  4375     * misc. other translation updates / fixes
  4376     * added rightsidebar theme
  4377     * TitleIndex now folds case, so "APage" and "anotherPage" are both under
  4378       letter "A".
  4379     * added macro/ - it calculates the hits each page gets since
  4380       beginning of logging
  4383     * Full text and title search do now support multiple search terms - 
  4384       see HelpOnSearching for details
  4386     * The Formatter interface was changed. Formatter and parser using 
  4387       the formatter interface have to be adjusted.
  4389 Version 1.2.1 (2004-03-08, Revision 1.184)
  4391 Fixes:
  4392     * minimum requirement to run moin 1.2/1.2.1 is python 2.2.2
  4393      * not: 2.2(.0), as this does not have True/False
  4394      * not: 2.2.1, as this does not have email.Header. You maybe can work
  4395        around that one by:
  4396       * getting the python 2.2.x (x>=2) /usr/lib/python2.2/email directory
  4397       * putting it into directory 'x' (whereever you like)
  4398       * doing a sys.path[0:0] = ['x'] in moin.cgi [or other appropriate place]
  4399       No guarantee, this is untested.
  4400     * Twisted: the http headers missed the charset data, fixed
  4401     * mod_python: fixes for mod_python 2.7
  4402     * wiki/data/plugin/ added - fixes not working plugin modules
  4403     * plugin processors work now, too
  4404     * fixed displaying non-existent translations of SiteNavigation in footer
  4405     * fixed zh-tw iso name (wrong zh_tw -> correct zh-tw)
  4406     * fixed reversed diffs in RecentChanges RSS
  4407     * fixed "last change" info in footer (wasn't updated)
  4408     * fixed event.log missing pagename (and other) information
  4409     * fixed horizontal line thickness >1
  4410     * fixed running from CVS workdir
  4411     * fixed crash when doing action=info on first revision of a page
  4412     * fixed hostname truncation in footer
  4413     * minor css fixes
  4414     * fixed clear msg links (they missed quoting, leading to strange page
  4415       names when you click on some of them)
  4416     * fixed python colorizer processor
  4417     * fixed quoting of stats cache filenames
  4418     * catched "bad marshal data" error when switching python versions
  4420 Other changes:
  4421     * updated danish (da) i18n
  4422     * updated japanese (ja) i18n
  4423     * added serbian (sr) i18n
  4424     * added chinese (zh) i18n
  4425     * added a simple "viewonly" theme based on classic theme - you can use
  4426       this as default theme, so anonymous users won't get the usual wiki stuff,
  4427       but a far simpler (and less powerful) user interface.
  4428       It also displays the navibar at the left side.
  4429     * added moin.spec for building RPMs
  4430     * included MoinMoin/i18n/* into distribution archive (nice for translators)
  4431     * included some stuff under MoinMoin/scripts - xmlrpc-tools and account
  4432       checking stuff. removed some version control clutter from the dist
  4433       archive, too.
  4435     * code colorization was refactored and some new languages (Java, C++,
  4436       Pascal) where added.
  4437     * inline: display of attachments was extended. A Parser now knows which
  4438       extensions it can handle.
  4440 Version 1.2 (2004-02-20, Revision 1.183)
  4442 New features:
  4443     * MoinMoin now requires Python >=2.2.2., we recommend to use Python >=2.3.2
  4444       (with 2.3.x, MoinMoin runs about 20-30% faster).
  4445     * by refactoring request processing, we made it possible to run moin under
  4446       persistent environments:
  4447         * twisted-web (
  4448         * (use for starting this mini server)
  4449         * mod_python
  4450         * FastCGI
  4451       Of course, CGI is still possible.
  4452     * wiki pages will be compiled to bytecode now (by default), so no need for
  4453       slow parsing/formatting on every view ("WASP", see caching_formats)
  4454     * when using a persistent environment (like twisted) and WASP, you get up
  4455       to 20x speed - compared to CGI and moin 1.1
  4456     * added support for diffs between arbitrary revisions.
  4457     * removed requirement of the external diff utility
  4458     * config.auth_http_enabled (defaults to 0) - use this to enable moin
  4459       getting your authenticated user name from apache (http basic auth,
  4460       htpasswd) - if you enable this, your basic auth username has to be the
  4461       same as your wiki username.
  4462       Should work with CGI, FCGI and maybe even with mod_python.
  4463       Does not change behaviour of moin under twisted or standalone server.
  4464     * config.tz_offset = 0.0 sets a default timezone offset (in hours
  4465       from UTC)
  4466     * config.cookie_lifetime (int, in hours, default 12) sets the lifetime of
  4467       the MOIN_ID cookie:
  4468         == 0  --> cookie will live forever (no matter what user has configured!)
  4469         > 0   --> cookie will live for n hours (or forever when "remember_me")
  4470         < 0   --> cookie will live for -n hours (forced, ignore "remember_me"!)
  4471     * added themeing and some themes (if you improve the existing themes or
  4472       make nice new ones, please contribute your stuff!). The default theme is
  4473       set by config.theme_default (and defaults to 'classic').
  4474     * now supporting plugin directory for parsers, processors, themes, xmlrpc.
  4475     * action=info now defaults to showing page revision history again
  4476     * all actions accessing the logfile (as RecentChanges or history) are now
  4477       much faster
  4478     * #refresh processing instruction, config.refresh
  4479         * config.refresh = (minimum_delay, target_allowed)
  4480             * minimum delay is the minimum waiting time (in seconds) allowed
  4481             * target_allowed is either 'internal' or 'external', depending on
  4482               whether you want to allow only internal redirects or also
  4483               external ones. For internal redirects, just use the Wiki pagename,
  4484               for external, use http://... url.
  4485         * #refresh 3                    == refresh this page every 3 seconds
  4486         * #refresh 5 FrontPage          == internal redirect to FrontPage in 5s
  4487         * #refresh 5 == redirect to google in 5s
  4488       Use very carefully! Allowing a low minimum_delay and putting a #refresh
  4489       on RecentChanges might slow down your wiki significantly, when some
  4490       people just let their browser refresh and refresh again. Also, it does
  4491       cause quite some traffic long-term. So better do not use this without
  4492       good reason! Default is None (switched off).
  4493     * hide most UserPreferences options before user has logged in, less
  4494       confusing for new users
  4495     * "config.page_dict_regex" defines what pages are dictionary definitions
  4496       Currently dictionaries are used for UserHomePage/MyDict where you can
  4497       define key:: value pairs that get processed like @DATE@ expansion when
  4498       saving a page. The 2 "@" will be added to your keys automatically.
  4499       Please do not use @xxx@ strings on the right side (value), results may
  4500       vary if you do.
  4501       You can also access wiki dictionaries by using the internal macro
  4502       [[GetVal(page,key)]]" - that will go to page "page" and return the
  4503       value (right side) corresponding to "key".
  4504       Implementation note: groups are a subset of the dictionary functionality.
  4505     * standalone server should work now (see server/, so you don't
  4506       need to setup apache or twisted for a local personal wiki, you only need
  4507       python and moin for that now, no additional stuff any more!
  4508     * if you run your wiki with charset = "utf-8" (the default is still
  4509       iso8859-1), you might want to have a look at contributions/utf8-pages/
  4510       to see if there are already translated system pages for your language.
  4512 Fixes:
  4513     * new importPlugin routine (the old one didn't work correctly)
  4514     * removed 0xA0 characters breaking utf-8
  4515     * system page recognition now uses wiki groups (see AllSystemPagesGroup),
  4516       fixing the long-time broken system page exclusion on TitleIndex.
  4517     * mostly HTML 4.01 Strict compliant HTML
  4518     * design is done by CSS now, HTML is semantic markup only 
  4519     * removed target attribute from links, also [^NewWindow] markup - this
  4520       is a HTML 3.2 feature and not valid in HTML 4.01
  4521     * updated TWikiDrawPlugin to 20021003 version, with further modifications
  4522       including source. It can draw imagemaps now and saves PNG. On display a
  4523       GIF will be searched if no PNG is found. We recommend changing all GIFs
  4524       to indexed PNGs cause this fallback might disappear in later versions.
  4526       Sample code using bash and ImageMagick (be sure you know what you do):
  4527       for draw in `find /path/to/wiki/data -name \*.draw`; do
  4528         file=`dirname $draw`/`basename $draw .draw`
  4529         if [ -e "${file}.gif" ]; then
  4530           echo "Converting ${file}.gif to ${file}.png"
  4531           convert "${file}.gif" "${file}.png"
  4532         fi
  4533       done
  4535     * fixed email headers and encoding
  4536     * Changed moin-usercheck to adhere to scripting standards; no
  4537       proprietary config changes needed any more (added --config);
  4538       --wikinames is now part of the usage message.
  4539     * config.umask now defaults to 0770 - if you give world r/w access, ACLs
  4540       could be rather pointless...
  4542 Removed config variables:
  4543     * external_diff (not needed any more, we have internal diff now)
  4544     * shared_metadb (wasn't implemented for long - we will re-add it, when it is)
  4545     * title1/2 (please use page_header1/2)
  4546     * page_icons_up
  4548 Changed config variables:
  4549     * changed_time_fmt (removed some html and brackets around time from default)
  4550     * html_head (default is empty string now)
  4551     * page_footer1/2 (default is empty string now)
  4552     * page_icons (is now a list of icon names, not html any more)
  4553     * umask (default is 0770 now, not world r/w any more == more secure)
  4555 New config variables (see MoinMaster:HelpOnConfiguration):
  4556     * cookie_lifetime
  4557     * mail_login
  4558     * page_credits
  4559     * page_dict_regex
  4560     * page_group_regex
  4561     * page_header1/2
  4562     * page_iconbar 
  4563     * page_icons_table
  4564     * page_license_enabled
  4565     * page_license_page
  4566     * theme_default
  4567     * theme_force
  4568     * tz_offset 
  4570 Other:
  4571     * lots of internal code refactoring and optimization
  4572     * began moving src code documentation to epydoc, see "make epydoc"
  4573     * the URL for the RecentChanges RSS feed changed. It now only works with
  4574       ...?action=rss_rc.
  4576 Known problems:
  4577     * theme support is neither complete (although covering most important
  4578       stuff) nor perfect - work on that will continue...
  4579     * we removed some html from system messages (the boxes at top of page you
  4580       get after some actions), so it currently looks less nice than before.
  4581     * html is not completely validating and it is not xhtml - this will be
  4582       fixed as soon as we have the infrastructure for that (other parser, DOM)
  4583     * problems with rtl (right-to-left) languages, will be fixed in 1.3
  4584     * if you change moin_config or switch themes, moin will still use already
  4585       cached page content. For the config this can be fixed by touching
  4586       MoinMoin/ (or simply deleting everything in
  4587       data/cache/ If you get more annoyed by this than pleased by
  4588       caching speedup, you can also switch off caching (see docs on
  4589       caching_formats).
  4591 Themeing and HTML/CSS cleanup:
  4592     * Browsers with completely broken CSS support (like e.g. Netscape 4.x) are
  4593       no longer supported. If you still need to support them, do not upgrade to
  4594       moin 1.2. If you still use these browsers, we recommend that you upgrade
  4595       your browser first (Mozilla 1.5 has nice and standards compliant HTML and
  4596       CSS support and is available as Free Software for Windows, Linux and Mac).
  4597     * If you changed any html in code or by config you will have to check if it
  4598       still works. For the usual stuff, look into `MoinMoin/theme/`
  4599       and `classic/css/screen.css`. For config defaults of the html fragments,
  4600       read `MoinMoin/`. If you want to modify a theme, don't simply
  4601       change classic, but copy or subclass it under a new theme name.
  4602     * because of the new theme support the layout of the `htdocs` directory
  4603       changed:
  4604       * Instead of using icons under `img/` and css under `css/`, there will
  4605         be an additional `themename/` directory in between, e.g. `classic/img/`
  4606         and `classic/css/`. If you added own icons, you may have to copy them
  4607         to the themes directory.
  4608       * The filename of the CSS file has changed to the media type, so the
  4609         normal one used for screen output has changed name from `moinmoin.css`
  4610         to `screen.css`. There also were quite some changes and enhancements to
  4611         the CSS files, so better use the new ones.
  4612     * config.css_url was removed
  4614 Plugins:
  4615   * we use a new plugin loader that requires a correct `` file in
  4616     the plugin directories. See the directory `wiki/data/plugin/` in the
  4617     distribution archive and just copy it over to your wiki's plugin directory.
  4620 Version 1.1 (2003-11-29, Revision 1.178)
  4622 Version 1.1 requires Python 2.0 or higher, we recommend to use Python 2.2
  4623 (version 2.2.2 if that is available on your host) or even better >= 2.3.2
  4624 (with 2.3.x, MoinMoin runs about 20-30% faster).
  4626 New features:
  4627   Configuration:
  4628     * config.default_lang lets you set a default language for users not
  4629       having specified language in their browser or UserPreferences
  4630     * "config.page_category_regex" defines what pages are categories
  4631     * replaced `config.page_template_ending` by a more flexible setting
  4632       named `config.page_template_regex`
  4633     * the same with config.page_form_regex (was: page_form_ending)
  4634     * "config.page_group_regex" defines what pages are group definitions
  4635       Currently groups are used for "user groups" (see ACLs) and "page
  4636       groups" (see AllSystemPagesGroup).
  4637     * robot exclusion from all pages except the standard view action,
  4638       via the config.ua_spiders regex (reduces server load)
  4639     * "maxdepth" argument for the TableOfContents macro
  4640     * config.title1, config.title2, config.page_footer1,
  4641       config.page_footer2 can now be callables and will be called with
  4642       the "request" object as a single argument (note that you should
  4643       accept any keyword arguments in order to be compatible to future
  4644       changes)
  4645     * "config.html_pagetitle" allows you to set a specific HTML page
  4646       title (if not set, it defaults to "config.sitename")
  4647     * navi_bar / quicklinks can now contain free-form links, i.e.
  4648       entries of the form "[url linktext]" just like in wiki pages
  4649     * if a quick link starts with '^', it opens in a new window; help
  4650       now opens in a new window also
  4651     * `config.smileys` for user-defined smileys (default: `{}`) - a dict
  4652       with the markup as the key and a tuple of width, height, border, image
  4653       name as the value).
  4654     * `config.hosts_deny` to forbid access based on IP address
  4655     * `config.mail_login` can be set to username and password separated by
  4656       a space, e.g. "username userpass", if you need to use SMTP AUTH
  4657     * `config.edit_locking` can be set to None (old behaviour, no
  4658       locking), 'warn <timeout mins>' (warn about concurrent edits, but
  4659       do not enforce anything), or 'lock <timeout mins>' (strict locking)
  4660     * optionally showing a license text on editor page, use:
  4661       config.page_license_enabled = 1
  4662       Optionally use these to customize what is shown there:
  4663       config.page_license_text = "... your text ..."
  4664       config.page_license_page = "MyLicensePage"
  4665       See the default values in MoinMoin/ for details and
  4666       override them in, if needed.
  4667     * `config.shared_intermap` can be a list of filenames (instead of a
  4668       single string)
  4669     * If you have added your own `SecurityPolicy`, the class interface for
  4670       that has changed (see ``).
  4672   Authenticaton / Authorization:
  4673     * added ACL support, written by Gustavo Niemeyer of Conectiva and
  4674       Thomas Waldmann. See HelpOnAccessControlLists for more infos.
  4675       You should use MoinMoin/scripts/ before activating
  4676       ACLs or some users with bad or duplicate accounts might get into
  4677       trouble.
  4678     * A user account can be disabled using or
  4679       UserPreferences page. Disabling, but keeping it is good for edit
  4680       history.
  4681     * changed security default: deletion only available to known users
  4682     * support for Basic authentication (Apache style: AUTH_TYPE="Basic",
  4683       REMOTE_USER="WikiUserName"). If authentication is there, user
  4684       will be in ACL class "Trusted".
  4685     * support for username / password login
  4686       The username / password login will ONLY work, if you define a
  4687       password. With an empty password, username / password login is not
  4688       allowed due to security reasons. Passwords are stored encrypted
  4689       (format similar to Apache SHA) and can also be entered in the
  4690       UserPreferences form in this format. When requesting login
  4691       information by email, the password is also sent in this encrypted
  4692       format (use copy&paste to fill it in the form).
  4693       ...?action=userform?uid=<userid> is still possible, so if you have
  4694       bookmarks, they will still work). The input field for the ID was
  4695       dropped.
  4696       NOTE: using the userid for login purposes is DEPRECATED and might
  4697             be removed for better security soon.
  4698     * after logging in, you will get a cookie valid until midnight.
  4699       The next day, the cookie will expire and you will have to login
  4700       again. If you don't want this, you can check the "remember me
  4701       forever" option in UserPreferences.
  4702     * if the page file is read-only, you get a message (i.e. you can now
  4703       protect pages against changes if you're the wiki admin).
  4704       Note: you can do that easier using ACLs.
  4706   Markup / Macros / Actions:
  4707     * RandomQuote macro (and even parses Wiki markup now)
  4708     * `[[Navigation]]` macro for slides and subpage navigation
  4709     * [[ShowSmileys]] displays ALL smileys, including user-defined ones
  4710     * the Include macro has new parameters (from, to, sort, items) and
  4711       is able to include more than one page (via a regex pattern)
  4712     * `MailTo` macro for adding spam-safe email links to a page
  4713     * if a fancy link starts with '^' (i.e. if it has the form
  4714       "[^http:... ...]"), it's opened in a new window
  4715      * because of that, the NewWindow macro was removed from contrib
  4716     * "#pragma section-numbers 2" only displays section numbers for
  4717       headings of level 2 and up (similarly for 3 to 6)
  4718     * ../SubPageOfParent links
  4720   User interface:
  4721     * new fancy diffs
  4722     * Page creation shows LikePages that already exist
  4723     * editor shows the current size of the page
  4724     * editor returns to including page when editing an included page
  4725     * Visual indication we're on the editor page (new CSS style)
  4726     * selection to add categories to a page in the editor (use preview
  4727       button to add more than one category)
  4728     * if user has a homepage, a backup of save/preview text is saved as
  4729       a subpage UsersHomePage/MoinEditorBackup
  4730     * added "revert" link to PageInfo view (which makes DeletePage more
  4731       safe in public wikis, since you can easily revive deleted pages
  4732       via revert)
  4733     * Selection for logged in users (i.e. no bots) to extend the listing
  4734       of recent changes beyond the default limits
  4735     * Activated display of context for backlinks search
  4736     * Subscriber list shown on page info
  4737     * LikePages shows similar pages (using difflib.get_close_matches)
  4738     * last edit action is stored into "last-edited" file, and
  4739       displayed in the page footer
  4740     * reciprocal footnote linking (definition refers back to reference)
  4741     * "Ex-/Include system pages" link for title index
  4742       Note: system/help pages algorithm is still mostly broken.
  4743     * list items set apart by empty lines are now also set apart
  4744       visually (by adding the CSS class "gap" to <li>)
  4745     * "save" check for security.Permissions
  4746     * Added Spanish, Croatian and Danish system texts
  4747     * Added flag icons for the languages supported in "i18n"
  4748     * updated help and system pages, more translations, see also
  4749       AllSystemPagesGroup
  4750     * there was quite some work done on wiki xmlrpc v1 and v2 - it
  4751       basically works now.
  4753   Tools and other changes:
  4754     * moin-dump: New option "--page"
  4755     * there are some scripts MoinMoin/scripts/* using wiki xmlrpc for
  4756       backup and wiki page copying applications
  4757     * Updated the XSLT parser to work with 4Suite 1.0a1
  4758     * more infos in cgi tracebacks
  4759     * UPDATE.html is a HTML version of MoinMaster:HelpOnUpdating
  4761 Unfinished or experimental features:
  4762     * user defined forms
  4763     * XML export of all data in the wiki
  4764     * RST parser (you need to install docutils to use this)
  4765     * SystemAdmin macro
  4767 Privacy fixes:
  4768     * do not use / display user's email address in public places
  4771     * Removed two cross-site scripting vulnerabilities reported by "office"
  4773 Bugfixes:
  4774     * Bugfix for PageList when no arguments are given
  4775     * Disallow full-text searches with too short search terms
  4776     * [ 566094 ] TitleIndex now supports grouping by Hangul Syllables
  4777      * fix for multibyte first char in TitleIndex
  4778     * Footnotes were not HTML escaped
  4779     * Numbered code displays are now in a table so that you can cut the
  4780       code w/o the numbers
  4781     * Bugfix for wrong mail notifications
  4782     * Create unique anchors for repeated titles
  4783     * [ 522246 ] Transparently recode localized messages
  4784     * [ 685003 ] Using "preview" button when editing can lose data

  4786     * fixed negative gmtime() arguments
  4787     * [[Include]] accepts relative page names
  4788     * fixed ||NotInterWiki:||...||
  4790 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4791 Version 1.0 (2002-05-10, Revision 1.159)
  4794 should occur, a maintenance release will fix them.
  4796 Some optional features (like statistics) already require Python 2.0.
  4798 New features:
  4799     * security fix: "allow_xslt" has to be set to 1 in order to enable
  4800       XSLT processing; note that this defaults to 0 because XSLT is able
  4801       to insert arbitrary HTML into a wiki
  4802     * "action=content" for transclusion into static web pages; emits the
  4803       pure page content, without any <html>, <head>, or <body> tags
  4804     * "?action=links&mimetype=text/plain" works like MeatBall:LinkDatabase
  4805     * "Preferred language" and "Quick links" user settings
  4806     * Added "processor" concept, processors work on the data in "code
  4807       displays" and are called by a bangpath in the first line of data
  4808     * Processors: Colorize, CSV (see HelpOnProcessors)
  4809     * New icons: "{OK}", "(./)", "{X}", "{i}", "{1}", "{2}" and "{}"
  4810       (see HelpOnSmileys)
  4811     * FullSearch now displays context information for search hits
  4812     * DeletePage offers a textentry field for an optional comment
  4813     * Email notifications are sent in the user's language, if known from
  4814       the preferences
  4815     * @PAGE@ is substituted by the name of the current page (useful
  4816       for template pages)
  4818 Unfinished features:
  4819     * user defined forms
  4820     * XML export of all data in the wiki
  4821     * RST parser (you need to install docutils to use this)
  4822     * XMLRPC interface
  4824 Bugfixes:
  4825     * Syntax warning with Python 2.2 fixed
  4826     * Macro-generated pagelinks are no longer added to the list of links
  4827     * error codes returned by "diff" are reported
  4828     * fix for attachments on pages with non-USASCII names
  4829     * correct handling of spaces in attachment filenames and URLs
  4831 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4832 Version 0.11 (2002-03-11, Revision 1.151)
  4834 Most important new features: file attachments, definition list markup
  4835 (glossaries), change notification via email, variable substitution when
  4836 saving pages, edit preview, and improved documentation.
  4838 Note that the RSS features require a recent PyXML (CVS or 0.7) due to
  4839 bugs in the namespace handling of xml.sax.saxutils in earlier versions.
  4840 This is (hopefully) automatically detected on every installation.
  4842 Statistical features are NOT designed to work with Python 1.5.2 and
  4843 require Python 2.0 or higher. Overall, MoinMoin 0.11 is not explicitely
  4844 tested for 1.5.2 compatibility.
  4846 New features:
  4847     * XML formatting now (most often) produces well-formed, and, depending
  4848       on proper layout of the wiki page, valid StyleBook XML
  4849     * Headers are now automatically numbered, unless you set the config
  4850       item 'show_section_numbers' to 0
  4851     * "#pragma section-numbers off" (or "0") switches that off explicitely,
  4852       and "on" or "1" enables numbering 
  4853     * Added a "contributions" directory for 3rd party extensions
  4854     * AttachFile action, contributed by Ken Sugino; note that you have
  4855       to enable this action because of the possibility of DoS attacks
  4856       (malicious uploads), by adding this to your moin_config:
  4857             allowed_actions = ['AttachFile']
  4858     * "attachment:" URL scheme allows access to attachments, to get files
  4859        from other pages use "attachment:WikiName/filename.ext".
  4860     * New macros: Date(unixtimestamp) and DateTime(unixtimestamp) to
  4861       display a timestamp according to system/user settings
  4862     * Variable substitution when a page is saved, note that saving
  4863       template pages does NOT expand variables. Supported are:
  4864         @DATE@      Current date in the system's format
  4865         @TIME@      Current date and time in the user's format
  4866         @USERNAME@  Just the user's name (or his domain/IP)
  4867         @USER@      Signature "-- loginname"
  4868         @SIG@       Dated Signature "-- loginname date time"
  4869         @MAILTO@    A fancy mailto: link with the user's data  
  4870     * Copied some new emoticons from PikiePikie
  4871         || {{{ :-? }}} || :-? || tongue.gif ||
  4872         || {{{ :\  }}} || :\  || ohwell.gif ||

  4888         to store macros and actions local to a specific wiki instance
  4889       * config.shared_intermap can contain a pathname to a shared
  4890         "intermap.txt" file (i.e. one stored outside the datadir)
  4891     * added `backtick` shortcut for {{{inline literal}}} (has to be
  4892       enabled by "backtick_meta=1" in the config file); note that ``
  4893       is then a shorter replacement for '''''' escaping
  4894     * added inline search fields (at the bottom of each page)

  4908     * "config.nonexist_qm" is now the default for a user setting
  4909     * `[[GetText(text)]]` macro loads I18N texts (mainly intended
  4910       for use on Help pages)
  4911     * table attributes via "||<attrlist> ... ||", more details on

  4915     * "moin-dump" command line tool to create a static copy of

  4924       is right after the <body> tag and normally undefined, title2
  4925       defaults to the "<hr>" above the page contents)
  4926     * Additional link on diff pages to ignore whitespace changes
  4927     * Subpages (config.allow_subpages, config.page_icons_up)
  4928     * super^script^, sub,,script,, and __underline__ markup
  4929     * `[[FootNote]]` macro
  4930     * many other new config options, see HelpOnConfiguration for
  4931       a complete list
  4932     * [[StatsChart(type)]] shows statistical charts (currently
  4933       defined types: hitcounts, pagesize, useragents)
  4934     * 'inline:' scheme works like 'attachment:', but tries to
  4935       inline the content of the attachment into the page;
  4936       currently knows about "*.py" sources and colorizes them
  4937     * support for Java applet "TWikiDrawPlugin" via
  4938       drawing:<drawingname> URL scheme (you need to activate
  4939       the AttachFile action if you want drawings)
  4940     * numeric entities (&#nnnnn;) are now optionally NOT escaped,
  4941       which allows you to insert more characters into a Latin-1
  4942       page, especially the Euro symbol
  4943     * navi_bar is now a list of page names which should be linked
  4944       on every page
  4945     * test.cgi is now rolled into moin.cgi, and can be called
  4946       by adding "?test" to the wiki base URL. Also, as a security
  4947       feature, the server's environment is only shown for requests
  4948       local to the web server.

  4964     * Fix for subtle changes in "re" of Python 2.2
  4965     * User-provided URLs are now never URL-escaped, which allows appending
  4966       #anchors and using %20 for spaces in InterWiki links
  4968 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  4969 Version 0.10 (2001-10-28, Revision 1.134)
  4971 This version is still Python 1.5.2 compatible, but it's not extensively
  4972 tested for that version and some parts of the system might not work
  4973 there, especially seldom used macros and actions. Bug reports welcome!
  4975 New features:
  4976     * "#deprecated" processing instruction
  4977     * config entry "SecurityPolicy" to allow for customized permissions
  4978       (see "" for more)
  4979     * added distutils support
  4980     * though not extensively tested, the standalone server now does POST
  4981       requests, i.e. you can save pages; there are still problems with
  4982       persistent global variables! It only works for Python >= 2.0.
  4983     * "bang_meta" config variable and "!NotWikiWord" markup
  4984     * "url_mappings" config variable to dynamically change URL prefixes
  4985       (especially useful in intranets, when whole trees of externally
  4986       hosted documents move around)
  4987     * setting "mail_smarthost" and "mail_from" activates mailing
  4988       features (sending login data on the UserPreferences page)
  4989     * very useful for intranet developer wikis, a means to view pydoc
  4990       documentation, formatted via a XSLT stylesheet, for details see
  4992       or MoinMoin/macro/
  4993     * "LocalSiteMap" action by Steve Howell <>
  4994     * Added FOLDOC to intermap.txt
  4996 Bugfixes:
  4997     * Full config defaults, import MoinMoin now works w/o
  4998     * Better control over permissions with config.umask
  4999     * Bugfix for a UNIX time billenium bug (affecting RecentChanges
  5000       sorting and page diffs)
  5001     * data paths with directory names containing dots caused problems
  5003 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
  5004 Version 0.9 (2001-05-07)
  5006 New features:
  5007     * XML page input (pages that start with "<?xml") and XSLT formatting
  5008     * Page caching, for now limited to XSLT processing (where it's
  5009       absolutely needed); new code & API to add the "RefreshCache" link
  5010     * Selection of common date/time formats in UserPreferences
  5011     * New action "titleindex" to support wiki introspection (MetaWiki);
  5012       see the new links below the index bar in "TitleIndex"
  5013     * UserPreferences: editable CSS URL for personal styles
  5014     * PageInfo: the editor's name or IP is shown for each change
  5015     * WantedPages: a new macro that lists links to non-existent pages

  5017     * Extensions to the FullSearch macro (see HelpOnMacros)
  5018     * Python syntax highlighting

  5022     * Config option "url_schemas" to extend the supported URL types
  5023     * Improved tracebacks by using Ka-Ping's "cgitb"
  5025 Bugfixes:
  5026     * The editor now sends a "no-cache" HTTP header
  5027     * "PageList" results are now sorted
  5028     * New config parameter "html_head_queries": send additional header
  5029       for all pages EXCEPT the "normal" view; main usage is to have
  5030       only the normal pages indexed by a spider, not the edit, print,
  5031       etc. views (which cause multiple hits on the same information)
  5032     * Store the modification time of the page file in the editlog, not
  5033       the current time when the log entry is created
  5035 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

  5144 New features:
  5145     * When saving, a datestamp saved in the form and that of the file are
  5146       compared now; so, accidently saving over changes of other people is
  5147       not possible anymore (saving still needs file locking though, for
  5148       race conditions)

  5163     * Grey background for code sections
  5164     * Added handling for numbered lists
  5165     * the edit textarea now grows in width with the browser window
  5166       (thanks to Sebastian Dau�for that idea)

  5168     * Added page diff, and diff links on page info

  5170       of WikiServers is read from "data/intermap.txt")
  5171     * Added "normal" InterWiki links
  5172     * Added "action=raw" to send the raw wiki markup as text/plain (e.g. for

  5190     * Uppercase letters for the index pages
  5191     * Added PythonPowered logo
  5193 Bugfixes:
  5194     * Javadoc comments now get formatted properly in {{{ }}} sections
  5195     * Remove \r from submitted pages (so we get PORTABLE wiki files)

  5198 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
