Version 1.8.0 is out:
The big changes are support for file uploads and links to the uploads, i.e.
the ability to attach files to topics, and switchable support for HTML
alongside Wiki markup.
We've done a bit of refactoring too, in preparation for adding optional
support for a database back-end as an alternative to the native flat-file
system, and a rewrite for the Jakarta Struts architecture.
The what's-new and an important upgrading notice are below.
***IMPORTANT NOTE IF YOU ARE UPGRADING FROM A PREVIOUS VERSION***
The "RecentChanges" mechanism has changed, and you may find that after
RecentChanges fails altogether. The only way to fix it is to delete your
changes cache. Do this by deleting the file in your Wiki directory (usually
directory + "/wiki") named "recent.hashtable". This means your recent
will be emptied... sorry if this causes any inconvenience.
---WHAT'S NEW for Very Quick Wiki V1.8---
Bill added switchable support for HTML, toggled from admin console.
Added https as a protocol that automagically turns into a link.
Fixed search engine index rebuild to refresh table completely (ooops).
Switched to using proper lexical analyser for tokenizing into the search
index so HTML tags are stripped and punctuation removed.
Changed JSP comments so that they are not output to the browser.
Added support for binary file uploads that produce an inline link of the
form attach:filename.ext. This allows the attachment of files to topics.
Added versioning cache to speed up finding where the previous revision is.
Added log4j as the logging engine (http://jakarta.apache.org/log4j).
Put all properties in a single properties file in the working directory.
Added security constraints to web.xml to allow administrators to setup up
for allowing edit access to only some users. The constraints are commented out
