  • v0.20.3-hotfix3 Changes

    April 18, 2020

    ๐Ÿš‘ Hey look - another wild hotfix appeared! Thanks to @SeanFromIT, 2 nasty bugs have been squashed in this release.

    When merging their PR I only realised that it was merging into the hotfix branch after I'd done it, so decided to make another hotfix release ๐Ÿ™‚

    ๐Ÿ›  Note that this is a maintenance release that backports some urgent bugfixes to v0.20. Current development efforts are focused on v0.21. The work-in-progress changelog for v0.21 can be found here.

    ๐Ÿš‘ Have you updated to this release? Click this link to say hi!

    โšก๏ธ Updating

    ๐Ÿš€ You can update to this release simply by grabbing an updated copy of index.php and replacing the version in your current wiki (don't forget to take backups! I make every effort to squash as many bugs as possible, but you can never be too certain). You can get an updated copy of index.php in a number of ways:

    • ๐Ÿš€ By downloading the index.php file attached to this release
    • โœ… Using the online downloader (always has the latest stable version)
    • Using the online downloader offline
    • ๐Ÿ— Building your own from source

    ๐Ÿ“š For more information on the last 2 methods, please see the documentation for more information.

    ๐Ÿš‘ v0.20.3-hotfix3

  • v0.20.2-hotfix2 Changes

    January 16, 2020

    Hey there! It's another hotfix release. Someone on Reddit noted that warnings were showing up in the demo, so this release fixes that. It's because I updated PHP to 7.4 on the server the demo runs on, and the version of Parsedown shipped with v0.20 doesn't like PHP 7.4 very much.

    ๐Ÿ›  Again, as with v0.20.1-hotfix1, this is a maintenance release that backports some urgent bugfixes to v0.20. Current development efforts are focused on v0.21. The work-in-progress changelog for v0.21 can be found here.

    ๐Ÿš‘ v0.20.2-hotfix2

    • โšก๏ธ Update Parsedown to squash warnings in PHP 7.4
    • โšก๏ธ Update the docs about how to get a copy
  • v0.20.1-hotfix1 Changes

    January 10, 2020

    ๐Ÿš‘ Hey there! This is the first hotfix of v0.20. @nivex discovered a nasty bug in the peppermint.josn access checker - which this release fixes. If the previous releases didn't work for you, try this one.

    ๐Ÿš€ Note that this release does not include any of the changes that are scheduled for the v0.21 release. If you want those, you should build your own from master according to the docs (or get in touch - I'm happy to send you a prebuilt copy!).

    ๐ŸŽ Changes in v0.21 that will be coming at some point include watchlists, email verification, performance improvements for wikis with lots of pages, and more! If you're looking to help out with that, please do get in touch if you know of a good fuzzy hash implementation in PHP for nearest-neighbour search. I'd really appreciate it :P

    ๐Ÿš€ Anyway, updating is as simple as updating your local index.php - grab your copy from this release, or any other documented method (e.g. the downloader).

    Edit: Click here to say hi if you've downloaded this release :D

    ๐Ÿš€ The full changelog for this release is as follows:

    ๐Ÿš‘ v0.20.1-hotfix1

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed logic error in peppermint.json access checker (thanks, @nivex! #179)
  • v0.20 Changes

    November 24, 2019

    ๐Ÿš‘ It's that time again! 5 years to the day since I first started working on Pepperminty Wiki (!) ๐ŸŽ‚ and 4 months, 19 days and 163 commits since v0.19 was released (discounting the 4 hotfix releases made to patch nasty bugs), today I'm releasing release of v0.20. This is a huge release - check out the feature summary:

    • ๐ŸŒœ New automatic dark mode in the default theme! Uses prefers-color-scheme under-the-hood
    • ๐Ÿฑ ๐ŸŒˆ Added theme gallery! Read more here
    • โ›ต Vastly improved search engine performance, with new advanced query syntax (with even more syntax along the way)
    • ๐Ÿฑ ๐Ÿš Accessibility improvements - if you're a screen-reader or accessibility tool user, I want to hear from you if you think anything (big or small!) could be improved!
    • ๐Ÿฑ ๐ŸŽˆ Server-side diagramming support! Allows you to call external programs like nomnoml and render fenced code blocks as an image.

    โœ… Personally, I'm most proud of the optimisations to the search engine. I've successfully tested it on wikis with ~5.9M words - and while search times vary depending on your input (the new -exclude syntax will actually speed up queries), a single work query for ~5.0M word wikis takes ~50ms O.o

    Unfortunately, this does mean that the search index will need to be rebuilt under the new format - and will be slightly larger than before. To get a progress bar for this operation, go to the master settings and click the rebuild button.

    ๐Ÿ’… Another notable change is the new 'mega-menu' style more menu:

    image

    That menu has been bothering me for a while, and thanks to the kind people on Reddit, I've now got a solution.

    ๐Ÿ”— Note that you'll need to delete nav_links_extra from your peppermint.json in order for it to take effect.

    โœ… Please test the theme gallery in particular. It's quite complicated under-the-hood, so I'd appreciate some extra eyes on that.

    Special thanks to @SeanFromIT for reporting a number of bugs which have been squashed.

    If you use Pepperminty Wiki, tweet me @SBRLabs! I'd love to hear about how you're using it.

    โšก๏ธ Lastly, don't forget to take a backup of your wiki before updating. While I've made every effort to squash bugs, you can never be too careful :P

    ๐Ÿš€ Note that because this is a beta release, the online downloader hasn't been updated yet (that'll happen on the next stable release). Try the copy attached to this release instead, run the downloader locally, or build your own using the CLI.

    • ๐Ÿ›  Fixed page revision id incrementing if you don't have a page called history on your wiki (thanks @SeanFromIT!)
  • v0.19.3-hotfix3 Changes

    September 12, 2019

    ๐Ÿš‘ Another hotfix! This time it's (mainly) due to a nasty typo found by the excellent @SeanFromIT - but there are more improvements to the unpacker too, as some people were still experiencing issues with it.

    ๐Ÿš‘ While additional features and less critical bug fixes have been implemented and made for v0.20 on the master branch, this release does not contain those - instead it's a small hotfix containing just the one bug fix that's backported from master.

    Since v0.19

    • โš  Patched the downloader which was throwing warnings when packing downloads
  • v0.19 Changes

    July 05, 2019

    โšก๏ธ > The update that changed the world! Turn everything upside-down.

    v0.19 is here! Even though it might not feel like it, this update is a big one, and it changes a number of fundamental internals about the way that Pepperminty Wiki is packaged - which should lead to exciting new features down the line!

    Notable Changes

    • ๐Ÿญ Completed refactored the build system. Now an internet connection is not required for the initial setup on first page load!
    • ๐Ÿ‘• ๐Ÿ’Ž Splinter the Pepperminty Wiki core into shards to make it more maintainable
