TWiki Release 4.1.2 (Edinburgh), 04:18:52 22 January 2008

Note: This is the release note for the previous major release version 4.1.X. This note and the TWikiReleaseNotes04x00 are included with 4.2.X because they contain valuable information for people upgrading from earlier versions. Both for the admin and the users. See TWikiReleaseNotes04x02 for the 4.2.X release notes

  • Users of mod_perl should notice a new experimental feature that speeds up searching by a large factor. The feature is described in the NativeSearch topic at the TWiki website. In configure look for the {RCS}{SearchAlgorithm} setting. Normal mode is Forking. The new mode for mod_perl is Native and is a C program which needs to be compiled with a C-compiler like gcc, and this new mode works faster than forking on mod_perl. If you do not run mod_perl stick to the default Forking.
  • /tmp/twiki directory which was introduced with 4.1.1 is now auto created also with older versions of the CGI::Session library. This is important for distributions that cleans out /tmp when rebooting.
  • Configure has gotten much better at installing extensions such as plugins.

  • Configure is now more friendly to a new administator. Configure now only shows the important "General Path Settings" until you have saved and created the LocalSite.cfg file. This prevents a number of false errors from being wrongly fixed by a first time installer.

  • The documented bahavior of "* Set ALLOWTOPICCHANGE = (nothing)" does not match the code. Documentation has been updated to match actual behavior in 4.1.2. See also deprecation notice below. You should review your use of access rights settings in topics.
