I've just released pmwiki-2.1.beta18, now available from
This is primarily a maintenance beta release, consisting of
minor operational changes and re-organizing the documentation
files that come with the distribution.
PmWiki now comes with a README.txt file, and most of the
other documentation files that previously existed in the PmWiki
base directory are now placed in a special "docs/" directory.
In particular, the sample-config.php file is now in docs/.
Many thanks to Hagan Fox, Waylan Limberg, and others for
their contributions and thoughts on this structure.
A bug in the PageVar() routine that didn't understand slashes
in page names has been fixed.
The automatic setting of a global $text variable has been
removed (I don't think anyone was using this feature anyway).
Other changes are noted in the ChangeLog and ReleaseNotes.
The final items before the official 2.1 release are
* provide better handling for PageNotFound situations
* provide a mechanism to display page attribute/password settings
I'm still planning to integrate a page comments feature, the ability
to hold draft versions of a page, blogging capabilities, and a secure.php
script, but in order to get 2.1 out of "beta" status these may come
a minor releases in the 2.1 series instead of holding 2.1.0 for them.
(These do not appear to involve significant changes to the existing
Comments, questions welcomed as always.
