PmWeekly, July 31, 2017

Update for PmWiki activity July 24 - July 31, 2017: new core release, 4 recipes updated, discussions about recipes, cookbook bug reports and patches.

PmWiki 2.2.100 and 2.2.101 were released (July 30, 2017)

  • 2.2.100: This version provides a workaround for an incompatibility with our Subversion version control system, where the $Author wiki variable was considered a Subversion variable. A fix for the responsive skin adds some spacing above the WikiText block. The documentation was updated.
  • 2.2.101: This version renames the internal constructor of the PageStore class to be compatible with both PHP 5 and PHP 7. Previously, the PageStore class had two constructors for PHP 4 and PHP 5 compatibility of which one was silently ignored, but recent PHP 7 versions display strict or deprecated notices when the PHP 4 constructor is present. If you must use PmWiki 2.2.101 or newer on a PHP 4 installation, please contact me so I can provide you with a workaround.
