I've just released version 2.1.12 of PmWiki, now available from


This version introduces the ability to nest divs and tables. The 
standard (:table:) and (:div:) markups are still available, except 
that a (:div:) may contain a (:table:) and vice-versa.

As in previous versions of PmWiki, the (:div:) markup automatically 
closes any previous (:div:). However, there are now (:div1:), 
(:div2:), etc. markups (and the corresponding (:div1end:), 
(:div2end:), ...) which can be used to uniquely distinguish divs 
for nesting purposes.

This should be a safe upgrade for most sites; however, if there are
any sites that depend on (:div:) closing a (:table:) or vice-versa,
then things may render differently.  To restore PmWiki's previous 
"non-nested" div behavior, set $Transition['nodivnest'] = 1; in a 
local customization file.

Other changes in this release:

    * Add a (:noaction:) directive to suppress display of page actions.
    * Allow anchor tags to contain colons, hyphens, and dots.
    * Add "white-space" as an allowed wikistyle.
    * Other minor bug fixes and typographical corrections. 

Lastly, if you haven't done so already, please add yourself or your
site to our Frappr map, at http://www.frappr.com/pmwiki !

Comments, questions, bug reports, etc., can be sent as always
to pmwiki-users at pmichaud.com .
