PmWiki is a WikiWikiWeb clone that is primarily designed as a tool to support easy, collaborative authoring and maintenance of Web sites. This release enhancemed the [[include:]] markup to allow for parts of another page, delimited by anchors and/or line numbers, to be included into the current page. Previously it would always include the full contents of another page into the current page.
This release replaces the call to an external patch utility with a function written entirely in PHP. It also enables the [[include:]] markup within sidebar pages, and allows local customization of group header and footer pages used in printed versions of a page. This release lets authors provide one-line summaries of any edits they make to pages. It also provides additional markup sequences for displaying code, and improvements to the external pmwe (pmwikieditor) script. This version added “WikiFarms”, a method for running multiple independent wikis (“fields”) on a system from a single installation.
Each field in a WikiFarm can have its own URL, set of pages, WikiGroups, local customizations, and uploads, and each field can be created, owned, and administered from an account other than the one holding the PmWiki farm installation. The farm administrator can provide farm-wide customizations, as well as manage software upgrades for all fields within the farm. No substantial changes were introduced in this release, and upgrades should be seamless. Page history can now be password-protected, and the ability to use multiple question marks in URL query strings was added.
