The next set of "beta" releases are leading up to version 2.1. All of the changes between 2.0.13 and 2.1.0 will be collected here, instead of having separate sections for each. The plans and features for 2.1 are listed at PITS:00565.

Version 2.0.13 (2005-11-10)

This is a release containing minor bugfixes and improvements in preparation for the 2.1.beta series.

Wiki administrators should note that after this release Pm Wiki will default to having Wiki Words disabled.
To make sure Wiki Words are enabled, use $LinkWikiWords = 1; in the local/config.php file.

Version 2.0.12 (19-Oct-2005)

This release cleans up problems with page validation for page links containing query fragments and ampersands, changes Pm Wiki to use a PHP "return" statement instead of "exit", and fixes a warning in scripts/transition.php.

Version 2.0.11 (17-Oct-2005)

This release fixes a couple of important bugs and adds some new features to Pm Wiki.

Most importantly, this release fixes bug with ?action=attr affecting the page history.

For sites using LDAP authentication with authuser.php, Pm Wiki now provides $AuthLDAPBindDN and $AuthLDAPBindPassword variables to specify the binding to be used for searching. It also works around a PHP oddity that causes users to appear authenticated when an empty password is provided. Authuser.php also now handles straight md5 password encryptions (commonly used by MySQL databases).

The core now includes the (:linebreaks:) markup (from Cookbook:LineBreaks), which causes text on separate lines in the markup to appear as separate lines in the output (i.e., no auto-joining of one line to the previous one).

There have been some internal changes designed to provide better support for leading-whitespace rules (more details on this in a future release).

The core now provides an (:if date:) markup to display text only if the current day is within a range of supplied dates.

Version 2.0.10 (29-Sep-2005)
Version 2.0.9 (28-Sep-2005)

This release fixes an oversight in xlpage-utf-8.php that failed to uppercase ASCII letters when mb_strtoupper isn't present.

Version 2.0.8 (27-Sep-2005)

This release simply adds the capability to use quotes to enter pass phrases (passwords containing spaces) using ?action=attr, and fixes a bug with displaying the name instead of the title in the default print skin.

Version 2.0.7 (26-Sep-2005)

This version changes the xlpage-utf-8.php case conversion slightly to use a more direct conversion table, and completed the table for more characters in the utf-8 set.

This release also fixes the $VersionNum variable that was supposed to appear in 2.0.6.

An accesskey shortcut (ak_textedit) is being added to the edit form text area.

Lastly, this release adds a timelimit to the generation of .linkindex, to avoid long page times when generating the .linkindex.

Version 2.0.6 (16-Sep-2005)

In this release, we provide quite a few more updates for sites that want or need to use utf-8 encoding, fix a large number of utf-8 related bugs, introduce better handling of author cookies, and better support for keeping track of version releases.

The biggest change is to the xlpage-utf-8.php recipe, which has been substantially rewritten from the previous version. This new version of xlpage-utf-8.php no longer depends on the mb_strtoupper() function, which seems to be not available in many PHP installations. The new version of xlpage-utf-8.php uses mb_strtoupper() if it's available, but if not available then it manually performs case conversions from a Unicode table that is directly encoded in the script. At present this table only understands case conversions for Western European (Latin-1 or ISO-8859-1) and Cyrillic characters, we'll want to expand the table to support other language character sets as needed. Just contact me on the listserv if a particular character isn't yet supported.

In addition to the above, author names and cookies in utf-8 environments now work again, and link suffixes containing non-ASCII characters work again also.

The GUI button handling in IE has been greatly improved; text selection in IE now works as you would expect it to work when a gui button is pressed. Possibly still no hope for Mac Safari browsers, unfortunately...

A $CookiePrefix variable has been introduced; a wiki administrator can set $CookiePrefix to prevent Pm Wiki's cookies from interfering with cookies set from other applications under the same domain name.
