Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Instiki 0.18

I just released Instiki 0.18.

It’s been half a year, since I announced the release of 0.17 and there’s lots of new stuff. So I guess it’s time for an upgrade

New feature include:

  • Syntax colouring for code blocks: ‘html’, ‘xml’, ‘ruby’, ‘ansic’, ‘javascript’, ‘sqlite’, ‘yaml’ and ‘css’ modes.
  • Source view [suggested by Andrew Stacey]
  • Auto-resizing Textareas scale to fit viewing area.
  • Passenger support (including X-Sendfile support, if the Apache mod_xsendfile module is installed).
  • Upgraded to Rails 2.3.5 and Rack 1.1.
  • Now runs on Ruby 1.9. (If you’re a Passenger user, you may need to upgrade to Passenger 2.2.8, which works around some bugs in Ruby 1.9.1.)
  • Upgraded for itex2MML 1.3.19 (which works under Ruby 1.9, and has several new features, relative to 1.3.15).

and a boatload of bugfixes.

Update (1/7/2010):

Because of some character encoding issues under Ruby 1.9 (mostly affecting My SQL users), I decided to issue a quick update to Instiki 0.18.1. [Thanks to Andrew Stacey for running these issues down.] I also added some new features: (Markdown-Extra-style) fenced code-blocks and ‘fortran’ syntax colouring. [Both courtesy of Jason Blevins.]

Please

 rake upgrade_instiki

before running the new version.
