MediaWiki 1.9.1 released

January 24, 2007

This is a bug-fix update that fixes some installation and upgrade issues
with the original 1.9.0 release.

* (bug 3000) Fall back to SCRIPT_NAME plus QUERY_STRING when REQUEST_URI
is not available, as on IIS with PHP-CGI
* Security fix for DjVu images. (Only affects servers where .djvu file
uploads are enabled and $wgDjvuToXML is set.)
* (bug 8638) Fix update from 1.4 and earlier
* (bug 8641) Fix order of updates to ipblocks table for updates from <=1.7
* (bug 8673) Minor fix for web service API content-type header
* Fix API revision list on PHP 5.2.1; bad reference assignment
* Fixed up the AjaxSearch
* Exclude settings files when generating documentation. That could
expose the database user and password to remote users.
* ar: fix the 'create a new page' on search page when no exact match found
* Correct tooltip accesskey hint for Opera on the Macintosh (uses
Shift-Esc-, not Ctrl-).
* (bug 8719) Firefox release notes lie! Fix tooltips for Firefox 2 on
x11; accesskeys default settings appear to be same as Windows.
