T008 Feb07 (details) PluginLoader shouldn't load plugins that are already loaded in the DEFAULT_WRAPPER_MODULE

When site plugins use the load_plugin command to load plugins that are shipped with webgen and loaded by default, some plugins don't work correctly as plugin classes get defined twice with different oids.

T013 Feb07 (details) fix TreeWalker

Make TreeWalker work as in 0.3.8 again, name it 'Misc/TreeWalker' and call it after building and before writing tree

T016 Apr07 (details) fix order of data directory discovery

T021 Apr07 (details) Problem with templates/example sites not working out of the box due to missing Textile support


  • Update templates to not use Textile sothat they work out of the box or
  • include redcloth as dependency

Since not using Textile makes the templates/examples not very 'nice' to view, redcloth is now a dependency of webgen.

\r and \r\n are now converted to \n sothat the $ operator for regular expressions works correctly
