[Pmwiki-users] Page Revisions in Safe-Mode

BTW, PmWiki 0.6 will likely have a PHP-based diff engine provided as
part of the distribution, for sites that don't allow calls to external

I'm not sure exactly when this will happen, but I'm guessing it should
be ready in a couple of weeks.  The 0.6.beta series of PmWiki will 
probably start in the next few days, and will be including author-tracking 
of changes, a PHP-based diff engine, a switch to stylesheet-based default 
layouts, and other miscellaneous improvements and changes.

Sorry I've been absent from development for a while--apparently I needed a 
bit of a break from things.
