TWiki Release 4.2.4 (Freetown), 2008-12-06

Note: This is the release note for the previous major release version 4.2.X. This note, TWikiReleaseNotes04x00 and TWikiReleaseNotes04x01 are included with 4.3.X because they contain valuable information for people upgrading from earlier versions. Both for the admin and the users. See TWikiReleaseNotes04x03 for the 4.3.X release notes

On this page:


TWiki 4.2.0 was released 22 Jan 2008 and introduced some hot new features that make TWiki a better user experience for both beginners and experienced application developers. It also contained quite a number of bugfixes since 4.1.2.

TWiki 4.2.1 is a patch release which only contains bug fixes. More than 150 bugs have been fixed since the release of 4.2.0 in all areas of TWiki.

TWiki 4.2.2, 4.2.3, 4.2.4 are patch releases which only contains bug fixes.

It is highly recommended to upgrade TWiki 4.2.x to 4.2.4. Users will find the 4.2.4 much more stable in daily use.

Pre-installed Extensions

TWiki 4.2.4 is shipped with

Supported User Interface Languages

The user interface of this TWiki version is localized to 18 languages:

English (default), Bulgarian (bg), Chinese simplified (zh-cn), Chinese traditional (zh-tw), Czechoslovakian (cs), Danish (da), Dutch (nl), German (de), Finnish (fi), French (fr), Italian (it), Japanese (ja), Polish (pl), Portuguese (pt), Russian (ru), Slovakian (sv), Spanish (es), Ukrainian (uk).

Note: TWiki needs to be configured properly to display user interface languages other than the default English language. Details in TWiki:TWiki.InstallationWithI18N and TWiki:TWiki.InternationalizationSupplement.

Important Changes since 4.2.0

Perl 5.8 is now minimum requirement with Wysiwyg

In TWiki 4.2.1 the support of international characters has been improved. Especially when using the Wysiwyg editor. This requires that perl internally works with unicode and that the Encode CPAN lib is installed. For this reason Perl 5.8.X is required for Wysiwyg support. TWiki will run with perl 5.6.1 if WysiwygPlugin is disabled.

TWiki now installs and works with Perl 5.10.0.

Newer distributions of Linux now ships with Perl 5.10.0. TWiki has been tested with Perl 5.10.0 and it should work fine. If the CGI library is version 3.37 you will need to update it to a newer version as the 3.37 contains some fatal bugs. Simply updating your perl using the standard update feature in your distribution may be enough to cure this problem.

The RCS files in subdirectories feature removed

The feature related to the config option TWiki::cfg{RCS}{useSubDir} has been removed. It never really worked and there are all sorts of issues related to it with respect to distribution of extensions and packaged applications, and it does not really add any performance advantages. So instead of trying to repair a bad feature that never really worked it was decided to remove it.

The removal was announced in a news letter and in a proposal topic, and discussed at several release meetings, and noone objected against its removal.

If you have run TWiki with this feature (maybe with a self implemented fix of the code) you will need to simply copy all the ,v files in all RCS directories to the directory above (where you find the .txt file or the attached filed) when you upgrade to 4.2.1.

The Japanese language file has been renamed

We decided to rename the locale/jp.po to locale/ja.po to match the rule that the file has the same name as the code for the locale.

For those using the Japanese language file you need to do the following if you upgrade TWiki

Important Changes since 4.1.2

New WYSIWYG Editor

TWiki now ships with a new WYSIWYG editor based on TinyMCE replaces the Kupu based editor.
TinyMCE is not a perfect Wysiwyg editor but it is magnitudes better than the Kupu editor

The WysiwygPlugin that drives the engine behind both TinyMCE has additionally been heavily improved so that less TWiki Applications are negatively affected by editing WYSIWYG

When TinyMCEPlugin is enabled the Edit button per default becomes WYSIWYG editing mode. A new Raw Edit link has been added to enable application developers to edit the good old way

The WYSIWYG button is removed when using TinyMCE instead of Kupu.


The NEWTOPICLINKSYMBOL preference which was deprecated in 4.1 has now been removed from the code. If you want to control the appearance of new links, you can use the more flexible NEWLINKFORMAT.

UserForm and NewUserTemplate Customization

When a new user registers on TWiki his user topic is created based on the NewUserTemplate and UserForm.

The NewUserTemplate was located in the TWiki web and the UserForm in the Main web. When upgrading TWiki these were some of the topics you had to take care not to overwrite.

From 4.2.0 the UserForm and NewUserTemplate are distributed in the TWiki web. If you create the two in the Main web the Main web version will be used instead. So if you tailor the user topic format or the form then you should always copy the two files to the Main web and modify the ones in the Main web. When you later upgrade TWiki your tailored template and form will not be overwritten.

TWikiUsers no longer distributed

The Main.TWikiUsers topic contains all the registered users. It is a topic you do not want to overwrite when you upgrade TWiki.

From 4.2.0 this file is no longer included in the TWiki distribution. When you register the first time TWiki creates the Main.TWikiUsers topic in the Main web if it does not exist already. This means that you can now upgrade TWiki without risk of overwriting the important TWikiUsers topic.

New working directory

A new directory working which per default is located in the twiki root, has been introduced which contains:

Note: Remember to restrict access to this new directory when you upgrade.

New Internal Admin Login

TWiki 4.2 introduces a new Internal Admin Login feature which uses "admin" (configurable) as username and the password from configure to become temporary administrator. When you do a new installation you need to use this feature as Main.TWikiAdminGroup is now access restricted by default to avoid security attacks during the hours an installation may take. From configure there is a link to the TWikiAdminGroup topic and on TWikiAdminGroup the step by step instructions are written in a yellow box.

Rearchitected User Mapping system (a transperant change for end users)

The User Mapping system has been further rearchitected to reduce its dependance on the traditional TWiki User topic based management and mapping implementation. TWiki is now capable of dealing with login names that are not 7bit ascii (by transforming those logins into a 'cUID' that can be used by rcs). TWiki::Users now uses TWikiIterators opening the way for much larger user sets.

API Enhancements (Func)

Deprecation Notices

The %MAINWEB% and %TWIKIWEB% variables have been deprecated. For compatibility reasons they are unlikely to ever be removed completely, but you should use the %USERSWEB% and %SYSTEMWEB% variables instead.

In Func getOopsUrl and permissionsSet have been declared deprecated. There is no plan to remove them yet.
