  • โž• Added

    • [Module API] Added save_settings() convenience method
    • [Rest API] Add user-add and set-password moderator actions
    • Added random_page_exclude_redirects setting that prevents the random action from returning redirect pages.
    • Added link to user table on the credits page
    • Added history reversion via the history-revert action
    • Added history_max_revisions setting to allow control of the maximum number of revisions stored for a page
      • Takes effect every time a page revision is added
    • Added page restore system
      • A previous page revision can be restored with a single click from the page history page
      • Added a new history_revert_require_moderator setting to control whether moderator privileges are required to use the functionality (regardless of setting a user must be logged in)
    • HTTP/2.0 Server Push support!
      • You'll need to make sure your web server has support turned on
      • The CSS file specified in the css setting (url path must begin with a forward-slash) and the favicon (must not be a data: url) are automatically pushed when rendering pages
      • 2 new settings have been added: http2_server_push for turning it on and off (defaults to on), and http2_server_push_items for specifying custom resources to push (in case you design your own theme and want to push down the associated resources)
      • More information about http2_server_push_items in particular is available on the configuration info page (when this release is out, of course. Until then, check out the description in peppermint.guiconfig.json)
    • Added <meta name='generator' /> tag to all pages

    ๐Ÿ›  Fixed

    • Updated the search system to transliterate characters to better support searching pages that are written in other languages.
      • You'll want to rebuild your search index via the button in the configuration panel, or the invindex-rebuild action.
    • [Security] Made the site secret generator cryptographically secure. If you created your wiki before this change, you might want to change your site secret in peppermint.json to something more secure with a site like random.org.
    • [Module API] Fix full_url() logic
    • [Module API] Make email_user() correctly return email sending failures
    • Squashed a warning in the search redirector
    • The search redirector will now check both the specified page name and the page name in Title Case
    • Improve help text description of image captions displayed alongside images
    • Fixed the page history page - it should now display all page revisions in valid HTML
    • Fixed another bug in the search context generator
    • Display an ellipsis at the beginning of a search context if it doesn't start at the beginning of a page
    • Semicolons are no longer automatically included in greedy internal links.
    • Pressing enter in the tag box now correctly previews instead of performing a smart restore

    ๐Ÿ”„ Changed

    • Password hashing has been overhauled! A totally new-and-different system is being used now, so you'll need to rehash all your passwords.
      • The hash action supports the new password hashing scheme.
      • Added password_cost, password_cost_time, and password_cost_time_interval settings
      • password_cost is recalculated automatically every week by default (it keeps track of this via the password_cost_time_lastcheck 'setting')
    • The css setting will now keep a value of auto, even when peppermint.json is automatically updated by Pepperminty Wiki.
    • Optimised the search system a lot (#157 - ~2800ms searches now take ~450ms O.o)
      • Tuned the default value for search_characters_context down to 75 (this won't be the case for existing wikis, so you'll need to adjust it manually)
      • Added new search_characters_context_total setting to control the maximum characters in a search context
    • The index action's output should now be formatted nicely.
    • Restyled "matching tags" in the search results in the default stylesheet
    • Added moar icons to the nav / more menus. Delete the appropriate entries in peppermint.json to get the updated ones!
