(Boy, it's nice to be writing version numbers without "beta" in them!)

One week after the release of 2.0.0 we're now up to 2.0.4, most changes 
have been minor bug fixes and improvements. This release provides a 
few more improvements.

The biggest change is the addition of a link indexing system for 
improving the speed of Categories and backlinks (using the 
(:pagelist link=...:) markup). The system uses a .linkindex file to 
keep track of all page links within the site, generating and 
updating the file as needed and using the file to avoid scanning 
pages that are known to not link to the target. The .linkindex file 
can be removed at anytime to cause it to be regenerated from scratch. 
Link indexing can be disabled by setting $EnableLinkIndex=0; in 

The "change summary" associated with each edit is now limited 
to a maximum of 100 characters. A local customization can increase 
the size of the summary.

The tilde sequences used to generate signatures are now precise; 
only a sequence of exactly three or four tildes result in a signature. 
Longer sequences of tildes such as ~~~~~~~~ are left alone and not 
converted to signatures. (Generating a sequence of three or four tildes 
still requires creative use of escapes, as in [=~~=]~ and [=~~=]~~.)

A number of previously hard-coded prompts are now internationalized.

Many PHP E_NOTICE messages (displayed when error_reporting() is set 
to its maximum value) are now eliminated.
