MoinMoin arnica Version History

arnica is based on the ParserMarket/Gallery2 program

 * HINT: there is no migration script done to migrate Gallery2 thumbnails or webnails to the cache arena.
         You have to remove them manually from the attachments dir. All attachments starting with "tmp." are ignored by arnica.
         There is also no migration script which renames Gallery2 to arnica on your pages.

 * HINT: The refresh action overwrites the one given from MoinMoin if it is added to the plugin dir of the wiki.
         Using this action you can comfortable erase all thumb and webnails from the cache dir of the page and don't need
         to cycle the parser parameter renew from 0 to 1 and 0 back. The refresh action becomes disabled if arnica is invoked by
         using the #format arnica statement. That's the reason because the renew parameter was not removed.

 * HINT: you need to enable arnica css files by adding html_head = '''
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" charset="utf-8" media="all" href="%(url_prefix_static)s/arnica/css/text_x_arnica.css">
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" charset="utf-8" media="all" href="%(url_prefix_static)s/arnica/css/arnica_slides.css">
''' % {"url_prefix_static": url_prefix_static}  to your

 * refactored arnicas caching to a more generic approach based on the new 1.7.1 cache action
 * removed dependency to 
 * preload of all images changed to load image on demand
 * bug fix of wrong quoting of pagename
 * link aliastext/filenam to attachment file added for downloading an image from the slide_show

arnica parser:
 * removed dependency to SWF library
 * caching is used for thumbnails and webnails
   (attachments arena isn't anymore polluted by those files)
 * introduced argument parser for verifying of valid parameters, 
   unitparser is used for thumbnail_width and webnail_width 
   valid unit is currently only px because of PIL requirement
 * format of listitem changed to * [[image1.jpg|alias]]
 * removed keywords: border_thick, help, text_width
 * renamed keyword: filter into file_regex
 * renamed keyword: front_image into album_image
 * renamed keyword: album_name into album_title, default is the pagename
 * new keyword target_page to show images from an other page
 * unveiled action commands
 * unveiled names of image icons
 * wiget.browser is used to arrange the thumbnails in columns
   and css is used to arrange thumbnail image, text and icons 
 * removed mode 2 because later on different modes should be done by css
   and mode 2 is not compatible to the DataBrowserWidget
 * packLine used for various join operations (separator is |)

arncia_slides action
 * the slideshow html code is now based on css
 * removed backlink function and icon
 * new function added for sending images from the cache to the browser
 * operations which changes an image requires now be called by POST
 * only webnails are preloaded, if you want images instead then you have to 
   set the flag image_for_webnail=True
 * Duration default is 3.0 seconds (unit switched also to seconds)
 * unveiled action commands
 * unveiled names of image icons
 * slide_show becomes a method
 * packLine/unpackLine used instead of join and split (separator is |)

refresh action
 * extends the MoinMoin refresh action to delete cache files of arnica
   (arnicas cache files do start with tmp.)

arnica macro
  * new (wrapper around the parser)
   calls the parser besides itemlist which can only be done by a parser everything
   could be done by the macro too. As all macros this one can be used in tables too
