Eg mysql becomes authmysql and plain becomes authplain. A compatibility mechanism will smooth upgrade, but care should be given to update your settings and test your wiki after the upgrade.

Release 2012-10-13 "Adora Belle"

Usage enhancements

  • A new default dokuwiki template is distributed with this release. This new template is HTML5 compliant and comes with sidebar and mobile support. The old template is still available with this release, but will be deprecated. :!: The new template is activated by default. Special thanks to Clarence Lee for the initial design.
  • The TOC and the search results have been rewritten and improved. This impacts templates: :!: all templates need to be adjusted to work properly. See d5acc30d and 91b05b6b for details of the changes and what needs to be done in each template.
  • Several fixes and enhancements have been made to the media manager
  • RTL has been given some particular attention
  • Several fixes of the subscription mechanism have been integrated

Setup & Administration

  • Multiple LDAP servers is now available
  • Wiki farms is in the core of DokuWiki: all the farm code is grouped in a farm.php file which can be included through the preload.php to activate farming
  • ACL now support a %GROUP% wildcard. This works like the %USER% wildcard, but for groups. :!: %USER% and %GROUP% cannot be mixed on an ACL line
  • Notification mail are now sent as HTML formatted mails. :!: This feature is enabled by default.
  • Resending password has been reworked. :!: Now DokuWiki honors the autopasswd setting: passwords are resent if $conf['autopasswd'] is enabled. If $conf['autopasswd'] is disabled a token is sent allowing password reset. Theses tokens are valid only during a limited time.
  • XMLRPC settings in the config file are renamed: xmlrpc and xmlrpcuser become remote and remoteuser. :!: You *must* rename these settings in your local.php config file if you were using them.
  • Added support for local style.inis

Integration & Development

  • Several fixes when using Active Directory as backend
  • DokuWiki now uses PHPUnit as its test framework
  • Sidebar inclusion is now provided in the new default template. (The Release Candidate included a tpl_sidebar() which was removed again to avoid conflicts with many popular templates.)
  • The DOKU_TPL* constants are deprecating: :!: template authors are encouraged to integrate that change.
  • More details about changes related to programmers.

And also

  • Over 20 language updates
  • Over 60 issues were fixed

Release 2012-01-25c “Angua”

Usage enhancements

  • Version handling of media files, just like pages. Old versions are saved and change history available in “recent changes” list as well as in RSS. This and the new media manager are the result of the Google Summer of Code project of Kate Arzamastseva. :!: Be careful when upgrading, some directories need be created (see upgrade)
  • Drag & drop support in media manager to speed up adding new files (only works in Firefox and Chrome). And improved multiple file upload (only works in Firefox, Chrome and Safari). This was made possible by replacing the old flash uploader with valums Ajax Upload.
  • A powerful, AJAX-enhanced fullscreen media manager is introduced in addition to the standard pop-up manager. :!: All templates must be updated to support the new manager. :!: Template authors need to add a media manager button and CSS.

Setup & Administration

  • Better farming with cascading configuration for plugin enabling/disabling, this was developed as part of the new extension manager Google Summer of Code project of Piyush Mishra. (see farm & config)
  • Performance enhancement by using data uris. This will transfer small images together with the CSS, thus reducing the number of needed HTTP requests and avoiding the HTTP header overhead. Turn on cssdatauri for a more efficient install.

Integration & Development

  • The core code now uses the jQuery JavaScript framework offering powerful features to plugin & template developers. The old, now deprecated JavaScript API is kept for plugin compatibility. Plugin and template authors are encouraged to migrate their JavaScript code to use jQuery instead of the old API (jQuery FAQ).
  • XML-RPC has been polished fixing some auth & login issues.
  • More details about changes related to programmers.

Finally

  • 25 reported issues were fixed.
  • Various smaller bug fixes and enhancements.
  • Thank you Kate and Piyush for their GSoC work and to Google for sponsoring it!

Hotfixes

  • XSS security issue 2561
  • XSS security issue 2487
