Luminotes Desktop installer.
* Added missing tools/usb_luminotes.sh for launching Luminotes Desktop from a
USB drive on Linux.
* Now stripping certain invisible placeholder characters from print version
of Luminotes notebooks. These characters could show up when copy and pasted
into another application.

Luminotes Desktop is started. Also added "--help" to show other available
options. Patches from Pete Burgers.

* Fixed a bug that caused ever-growing notes in Internet Explorer 8.
1.6.16: July 14, 2009

Explorer. This fixes Luminotes support for Internet Explorer 8.
1.6.15: July 12, 2009
* No longer charging for Luminotes Desktop or offering subscription signups.
* Fixed a Firefox 3.5 bug in which after ending a link ctrl-L, typed text
ended up as part of the link. Now, ctrl-L properly ends the link and any
typed text after the link does not become linked itself.

inexplicably end after typing a few characters.
* Fixed a Firefox 3.5 bug in which spacing at the top of each note changed
when a note was focused.

incorrectly. Note that as of this release, there are a number of other

1.6.14: June 14, 2009
* Fixed a bug in which some printed or exported notes appeared in
alphabetical order instead of your chosen ordering.
1.6.13: May 20, 2009
* Added a dynamic preview of your current color selections to the color
picker. This lets you see what the selected colors will look like as you
are selecting them.
* Made the color picker stay open after a color is selected. This makes it
easier to set both foreground and background colors.
* Fixed a Chrome/Safari bug in which popups such as those for export and
color were not positioned correctly if the page was scrolled past the top.
* Fixed a bug in which certain popups on the left and right side of the page
scrolled along with the page instead of staying fixed in place.
* Fixed a bug in which detecting or saving colors set on note titles did not
1.6.12: May 19, 2009

browser's context menu.
* Fixed a bug in which special characters in a customer's name prevented
PayPal payments from going through properly.
1.6.11: April 28, 2009
* Rewrote the way that the toolbar is implemented, laying the groundwork for
themes in a subsequent release.
* Changed some of the "+" buttons to be more descriptive: "+ notebook" and
"+ note link".
* Moved search field up above "notes" heading.
* Fixed a bug in which toolbar buttons didn't depress based on the current
location of the text cursor.
* Fixed a bug in which discussion forum bylines ("Posted by...") were
sometimes duplicated several times on a given post. Now bylines are
displayed below each post rather than within it.
* Fixed a Firefox bug in which removing some bold text and then typing new
text would make the new text bold. Now, if you completely remove some bold
text (rather than just a portion of it), any new text that you type will be
* Fixed a Firefox bug in which copying and pasting text between notes
inserted line breaks in the pasted text.
1.6.10: March 20, 2009
* Faster uploads and downloads for users of luminotes.com.
* Luminotes Server improvements:
* Fixed a bug in examples/luminotes_debian_initscript that prevented the
"stop" command from working properly.
* Added support for using the nginx web server with Luminotes. See the
INSTALL file for more information.
* Fixed a problem in which copying and pasting text containing newlines
caused the pasted newlines to appear as spaces.
1.6.9: March 16, 2009
* Added a remove formatting feature to the tools menu. This allows you to
strip out all formatting from the currently selected text.
* Luminotes discussion forums now change the discussion thread link color
based on whether there are any new posts since you last visited the
thread. This makes it much easier to keep up with a particular discussion.
* Fixed a bug in which the filename of an exported HTML file was just
"export" instead of being based on the notebook name.
1.6.8: March 3, 2009
* You can now print your entire notebook. Just click the "print" link on the
left side of the page.
* You can now print an individual note. Just click the "tools" tab on a note
and then "print this note".
* Changed the order of exported HTML and CSV notebooks so that after all the
"startup" notes are included, the remaining notes are included in
alphabetical order (instead of reverse chronological order).
* Instead of converting unsupported HTML tags to plain text when a note is
saved, Luminotes now simply strips out all unsupported tags. This further
improves copy and pasting text from programs like MS Word.
* Fixed a compatibility problem with newer versions of SQLite. (Luminotes
was using a reserved keyword as an identifier.) This only affected those
people who installed Luminotes Server themselves.
1.6.7: February 23, 2009
* When you export your notebook as an HTML or CSV file, the saved filename is
now based on the name of your notebook, for instance "my-to-do-list.html"
or "ideas-for-my-novel.csv".
* Several minor improvements to CSV importing and exporting.
* Converted the existing HTML and CSV export features to work as separate
export plugins. This means that a new export format can be implemented as
a new plugin.
* There is now a downloadable free trial for Luminotes Desktop!
1.6.6: February 16, 2009
* Luminotes now recognizes "mailto:" links as external links, so you can
include links to email addresses within your notes.
* Several Luminotes Desktop improvements:
* There is now a "close" link at the top of the page to completely shut
down the process when you're done using Luminotes.
* Luminotes Desktop now attempts to always run on a particular port number,
which means that as long as it's running you can reach it from a constant
web address.
* You can now copy the Luminotes Desktop web address and paste it into
another web browser without getting an error message.
* Now, if you copy a link from another web page and paste it into a note,
Luminotes properly recognizes it as an external link (rather than a link to
a note).
* Fixed a bug in which clicking "compare versions" during a conflict didn't
actually display the changes between the two versions.
1.6.5: February 12, 2009
* Now ignoring even more unneeded HTML tags from an MS Word copy-and-paste.

the next note to display incorrectly.
* Fixed a bug in Internet Explorer in which opening a note by following a link
didn't display the opened note correctly.
* Fixed a bug in which a drag-and-dropped note occasionally didn't resize back
to its original size.
* Re-fixed a bug in which hiding a focused note could (temporarily) leave an
empty gap at the bottom of the page.
1.6.4: February 12, 2009
* Now ignoring certain unneeded HTML tags that end up in your notes when you
copy and paste text from an MS Word document.

not position the text cursor there.
* Fixed a bug in which clicking on an unfocused note didn't position the text
cursor in the correct location.
* Fixed bugs related to the display and hiding of previous note revisions.
* Fixed a bug in which moving a note and then clicking the "changes" tab on
any other note failed to show that note's previous revisions.

notification error.

new release.

* Fixed a visual bug in which a second title within a note had insufficient
vertical spacing above it.
1.6.1: January 29, 2009
* Fixed a bug in which hiding a focused note could (temporarily) leave an
empty gap at the bottom of the page.
* Fixed a bug in which performing a search when search results were already
open would just hide the initial search results without showing the new

error message.

* Switch to the previous open note: Page up
* Start a search: Ctrl-slash
* Save the current note: Ctrl-space

* Decreased the default note text font size, so now you can see more of your
note text at once.

note link sometimes caused a red error message.
* Fixed a bug in which yellow pulldowns that were opened towards the bottom
of the page appeared partially off the page.

first ten in a particular thread.
1.5.10: December 4, 2008
* Fixed a bug in which certain new installations of Luminotes Desktop
on Windows yielded an "uh oh" error on initial launch. This bug did
not occur during upgrades. It only affected new installations.
1.5.9: December 3, 2008
* When you hover the mouse over a link and a link pulldown appears, that
pulldown will now automatically disappear soon after you move the mouse
* Changed the "new note" key from ctrl-N to ctrl-M so as not to conflict with
the "new browser window" key used in most web browsers.
* Fixed a Chrome/Safari bug in which ending a link didn't always work.
* Fixed a rare Chrome/Safari bug in which pressing backspace sometimes made
the text cursor vanish.
* Fixed an Internet Explorer bug in which backspace sometimes didn't work,
such as when backspacing an empty list element.

* Fixed a bug that prevented notes from being automatically saved in certain

note was saved even when it wasn't.
* Fixed a bug that prevented deleted notes from being displayed within the
1.5.7: November 18, 2008
* Rearranged the links on the left and right side of the wiki editing page
so that the note title links have a little more horizontal breathing room.
* You can now add an existing note directly to the note tree, instead of
having to click "options" -> "show on startup".
* Improved site navigation by adding more useful links to the page footer.
* Converted the Luminotes blog to work like a forum, so now you can post
comments on Luminotes blog posts.
* You can now subscribe to an RSS feed in order to follow a whole Luminotes
discussion forum.

there are in each thread.

portion of the note that matched the search term. (Luminotes Server)
* Fixed a visual bug in which undoing the deletion of a note didn't always
make the note reappear, even though the undeletion always worked.
* NOTE: After upgrading to this release, you must restart memcached to clear
the cache. Failing to do so will cause errors with the Notebook object.
This does not apply to Luminotes Desktop.
1.5.6: November 12, 2008
* Greatly improved the speed of wiki searching for Luminotes Server and
luminotes.com. Also included a section on search performance within the
* Added permalinks to blog and discussion forum posts.
* Fixed a bug in Internet Explorer in which clicking a link sometimes caused
the browser window to scroll to the destination note, only to immediately
scroll back to the clicked link.
* No longer displaying annoying warning messages about Safari/Chrome support
being considered "beta".
* NOTE: Luminotes Server only, not Luminotes Desktop: Before you start
Luminotes Server after this upgrade, run the following command as the
PostgreSQL superuser (usually "postgres"):
echo "create language plpgsql;" | psql luminotes
Then, once you start Luminotes Server, be prepared to wait up to several
minutes while the database search indices regenerate.
1.5.5: November 6, 2008
* Improved speed of Luminotes Desktop by adding some database indices. This
will help in particular for larger notebooks with many notes.

of the bigger plans by default.

* Fixed a visual conflict between your web browser's search field
autocomplete and Luminotes built-in suggest-as-you-type feature.
* Fixed an occasional bug that caused unexpected logouts. The solution was
to move the session information into the database where it could be
properly locked.
* NOTE: After upgrading to this release, you must restart memcached to clear
the cache. Failing to do so will cause errors with the Note object. This
does not apply to Luminotes Desktop.
* NOTE: After upgrading to this release and starting Luminotes, you can
optionally convert all existing user sessions with the script
tools/convert_sessions.py. This is not necessary for Luminotes Desktop.
1.5.4: October 9, 2008
* Fixed a visual bug in which clicking up or down to reorder your notebooks
didn't display correctly.

PayPal took too long to notify Luminotes of the purchase.

* Leading/trailing spaces in note titles are now ignored when making links
to such notes. This means that creating a link titled "my note" to a note
called "my note " now works properly.
* Leading/trailing spaces and newlines in note titles and contents are now
stripped out when exporting to CSV.
* Fixed a bug in which clicking the "export" link when the current note was
unsaved did not open the export pulldown.
* Changed the warning about Safari/Chrome/Opera incompatibility to be an
in-page message instead of a popup alert so as to be slightly less
1.5.1: September 28, 2008
* Implemented CSV exporting, so now you can export all of your notes to a
CSV spreadsheet file. This currently doesn't include revision history or
attached files.

the "download as html" document pointed to notes in the local Luminotes
installation instead of notes within the stand-alone document.

file to run Luminotes from a USB drive.
* Moved "files" directory into ~/.luminotes or %APPDATA%\Luminotes.
* NOTE: After upgrading to this release, you must move your Luminotes
"files" directory into ~/.luminotes/ or you will not be able to access
your uploaded files:
mkdir ~/.luminotes
chmod 700 ~/.luminotes

* Fixed a bug in tools/initdb.py and tools/updatedb.py that caused them to
only use some of the configured settings.
* Progress on Luminotes Desktop, including the Windows installer.
1.4.26: August 20, 2008:
* Ported all database code to support SQLite in addition to the existing
PostgreSQL support. This is a necessary first step for Luminotes Desktop.
* Updated all unit tests to test against an in-memory SQLite database. This

show the undeleted note even if the undelete is successful.
1.4.25: August 11, 2008:
* Fixed a bug in which the character encoding of uploaded CSV files was not
properly detected and used to decode the file. Note that this fix
introduces a new dependency: http://chardet.feedparser.org/ found in the
python-chardet package.
1.4.24: August 11, 2008:
* Added a light gray line under note title text to make it clearer that it's
a title as opposed to just bold text.
* Fixed a bug in Firefox 3 in which disabling title text did not work.
* Fixed a bug in Firefox 2 and 3 in which pasting a paragraph tag into a
note caused the enter key to change from inserting a line break tag to
inserting a paragraph tag.
1.4.23: August 11, 2008:
* New notebook import feature for importing notes from a CSV file. (Beta.)
* Enforcing maximum note length after stripping the note of any disallowed
HTML tags instead of before. This makes Luminotes work better when cutting
and pasting lots of text from MS Word.
1.4.22: August 1, 2008:
* Skipping clearing of messages/errors if they haven't been open long enough
to read.
* Fixed a bug in which renaming a link title and then pressing ctrl-L would
replace the link destination.

* By popular demand, added a "save" button that becomes grayed out when
everything is saved.
* Now displaying "saving" status text in addition to "loading".
* Made both left and right navigation areas of the page have a fixed
position, so they stay in one spot even when you scroll your notes.

in parallel.

not properly redirect to that note after login.
* "Nothing but notes" mode now hides the toolbar as well.
* Rephrased some of the links to the signup page.

* Updated the product tour with an analogy to index cards.
1.4.16: July 18, 2008:
* Slightly increased the size of the file upload pulldown to look better in
various browsers (and not cut off text within the frame).
* When you invite other people to view or edit your notebook, you can now
see the invite link they'll receive in case you want to copy and paste it
to them yourself.
1.4.15: July 15, 2008:
* Reduced the size of the font within the upload pulldown to match the other
* Added some frequently asked questions (and answers) to the pricing & sign
up page.
* Updated the original FAQ page accordingly.
1.4.14: July 12, 2008:

open caused the current text to indent/outdent.
1.4.13: July 11, 2008:
* New "revert" button to roll back a note's contents to an earlier revision.
1.4.12: July 7, 2008:
* Fixed a bug in which tab/shift-tab for indending/outdenting nested lists
no longer worked. Also made it work in IE as well (which it never has).
* controller.Root.guide() now accepts an optional note_id parameter.
* Fixed a bug in which clicking a note title suggestion from within the link
info title field sometimes didn't update the link properly. This was due
to a race condition between the link info pulldown's onblur/onchange
handler and the suggestion onclick handler, both of which tried to update
the link, title, and summary at about the same time.
* Possibly fixed a bug in which the displayed suggestions sometimes did not
reflect the most recent characters typed.
1.4.11: June 29, 2008:
* Fixed bug in which bolding of suggest-as-you-type search text was case
sensitive. Now it's case insensitive.
1.4.10: June 29, 2008:
* New suggest-as-you-type feature for creating a new link, setting a link's
destination, and even for searching a notebook.
* Fixed a bug where typing a space within a link in IE caused the space
to be added to the end of the link.

1.4.9: June 25, 2008:
* When linking to a note by title, the note resolution is now
case-insensitive instead of case-sensitive.
1.4.8: June 23, 2008:
* Replaced "add new notebook" link with new notebook button next to
"notebooks" heading.
* Reorganized and renamed some notebook links on the right side of the page.

* New favicon.ico image that looks slightly less dated.
1.4.6: June 18, 2008:
* New screenshot and new tour shots.
1.4.5: June 18, 2008:

* Fixed a bug that potentially caused link pulldowns to open in the wrong
location when the page was scrolled past the top.
1.4.4: June 17, 2008:
* Links to embedded images now show up within the note tree's list of links.
* Links to files that have not yet been uploaded (or have been deleted) are
now excluded from the note tree's list of links.
1.4.3: June 16, 2008:
* Fixed a bug in which an image thumbnail could not be loaded unless
you had a valid session. This prevented thumbnails from showing up
if, for instance, you were reading the Luminotes blog from an RSS
reader that didn't establish a session.
1.4.2: June 16, 2008:
* Fixed a bug that caused image files to get deleted if there were multiple
images embedded within a single note.
* Prevented a link pulldown from auto-opening by hovering if another
pulldown is already open.

for a few seconds.
* Tweaked the popup positioning code to prevent popups from getting smashed
into the right side of the page.
* Updated tools/set_plan.py to automatically update a user's group
* Removed Google AdWords <script> tag from distributed Luminotes tarball,
as not every installation of Luminotes uses AdWords.
1.4.0: June 9, 2008
* Implemented some basic user administration features, allowing you to
create Luminotes users yourself.
* Added new rate plans with support for user administration.
* Wrote a tool for manually updating a user's rate plan: tools/set_plan.py
* Refactored some of the client-side form-handling code to cut down on
special-case hacks.
* NOTE: After upgrading to this release, you must restart memcached to clear
the cache. Failing to do so will cause errors with the User object.
1.3.40: May 27, 2008
* Added some minor product page tweaks like meta description tags.
1.3.39: May 27, 2008
* Removed key binding for title button (ctrl-T), since it was interfering
with tab opening in Firefox.
1.3.38: May 26, 2008

displays a somewhat informative message in the feed instead of just
silently raising an error.

certain images.
1.3.36: May 19, 2008

* Searching now displays results from multiple notebooks and not just the
current notebook.
1.3.32: May 19, 2008
* Decreased some font sizes so more note links don't wrap as much.
1.3.31: May 18, 2008
* Improved the detection of whether an existing note has been altered and
thus needs to be saved to the server.
* Expanded workaround for IE iframe positioning bug to include IE 7.

* Made the toolbar auto-resize based on browser window size.
1.3.23: May 9, 2008
* Fixed tools/release.sh to include an empty session directory in the
produced tarball. Without a session directory, installing and running
Luminotes server would yield session deadlock errors.
1.3.22: May 8, 2008
* In send_invites(), no longer implicitly assuming rate plan 0 has
notebook_collaboration set to False.
1.3.21: May 8, 2008

that note is a startup note, it shows up in the note tree twice.
1.3.16: May 6, 2008
* Fixed a bug where an invite sent for a notebook with an accented unicode
name would cause a UnicodeEncodeError upon sending the invite email. Now
