Hi all,

I decided to go ahead and release FAST Data v 1.2 as it offers a
number of nice new features and the current pagelist question Pm is
working on shouldn't require a change in the recipe.

This new version adds a radical FixPage() function which allows all
kinds of possibilities for NextPage, DataPage and (:data ReadPage:)
values.  I also stripped off the requirements for having to keep
writing "Data-", making things a little simpler, but breaking existing
Also added a powerful new DataCopy feature for not only copying
between field values but formatting them according to very flexible,
multi-step, pattern replacements. Other minor changes.

My apologies for the frequent new changes requiring updates to your
code.  I just keep finding better ways to do things, or discover
needed features, etc., as I go along.  It should get a little more
stable eventually.  I want it *right* before I launch out fully into
this on my site.


PS.  I set up a live demo site of only about 25 pages, a base install
of PmWiki and a mostly standard config file with only FAST Data used.
Please check it out.  Feel free to leave a question in the forums if
you're not sure how to do something.  I'll try to monitor it and
supply answers.  The url is
