0.6.0 (2019-02-09)[edit]

FEEDBACK NEEDED TO KEEP CONFIGS, SEE NOTE

features:

  • to keep custom styles, new configuration settings for two error states had to be added
  • When user has no realname: $wgRealnamesLinkStyleNoRealname, $wgRealnamesBareStyleNoRealname
  • when username and realname are same: $wgRealnamesLinkStyleSameName, $wgRealnamesBareStyleSameName

bugfix:

  • when no realname, display standard format

breaking:

  • removed support for now-archived Extension:Configure

note:

  • this extension may suffer from too many options, especially as a result of supporting custom styles.
If you use any option other than $wgRealnamesLinkStyle, I want to hear from you! If I don't hear from
anyone I will assume nobody cares about the options, and I can significantly simplify the testing of the
extension down to just to one configuration parameter, $wgRealnamesLinkStyle and remove the rest.

testing:

  • 1.31.1 (LTS)

0.5.1 (2019-02-04)[edit]

0.5.0 (2019-02-04)[edit]

features:

  • you can now load extension using wfLoadExtension( 'Realnames' );

testing:

  • 1.32.0, 1.31.1 (LTS)

0.4.0 (2019-02-03)[edit]

features:

  • new $wgRealnamesStyles: dash-reverse, paren-append, paren-reverse
  • all $wgRealnamesStyles now include all user text in the link (create custom style to restore previous behaviour)
  • $wgRealnamesLinkStyle now defaults to paren-reverse (was reverse)

0.3.2 (2019-01-30)[edit]

notes:

  • documentation update

0.3.1 (2011-12-25)[edit]

bugfix:

  • custom namespace regex (thanks Cweiske)
  • STRICT error with STATIC (thanks Vgold)

notes:

  • removed contrib-agreement, consensus in discussions indicate it's uneeded to remain BSD in shared environment.
  • some progress is being made into core-features for name display, expect some future version to support things like sorting based on realnames (thanks Daniel Friesen)
  • version 0.3 misreported version as 0.2.1, now 0.3.1 (oops, again)

issues:

  • Consensus is that performance could be an issue using current methods. I am currently working on a 2-pass version of the extension to address these issues that will be released as soon as it is ready.

testing:

  • svn trunk 2011-12-26, stable 1.18.0, 1.17.1, 1.16.5, 1.15.5

0.3 (2011-11-05)[edit]

features:

  • you can opt-out of replacements using $wgRealnamesReplacements (thanks Salquint)
  • we now have smarts in the form of not displaying "Marry - Marry" text
  • you can change "smart" features like above using $wgRealnamesSmart

bugfix:

  • version 0.2 misreported version as 0.1.1, now 0.3
  • now tied into main debugging framework
  • a missing return statement was causing titles in append style to get garbled

notes:

  • switched to a more permissive and correct bsd-2-clause license agreement for commits
  • added more metadata files

issues:

  • I continue to be concerned with performance on large recentchanges/history since my initial post about it on 2011-09-19. After receiving a few code reviews recently (finally!) the main feedback has been that there may indeed be scalability problems with using newFromName. In my original post (see extension talk page) I proposed two solutions, but haven't heard from anyone experiencing problems yet. I think I may implement a two-pass as described in the next feature version, however it will make the code significantly more complex. I'll hold off on extending those two specific pages until it's confirmed a two-pass isn't enough.

testing:

  • svn trunk 2011-11-05, 1.18.0beta1, 1.17.0, 1.16.5, 1.15.5

0.2 (2011-09-22)[edit]

features:

  • replaces username in personnal url bar (where you click login top right vector)
  • allows custom namespace detection $wgRealnamesNamespaces
  • adds support for Extension:Configure (undoc at release)

bugfix:

  • i18n links User: namespaces (thanks Nilsy)
  • support for upcoming 1.18 gendered namespaces
  • title handling for pre 1.16 wiki's
  • custom namespace names

testing:

  • trunk 2011-09-22 stable 1.17.0, 1.16.0, 1.15.5

0.1.1 (2011-09-17)[edit]

bugfix:

  • eliminated use of create_function due speed implications (thanks Dantman)
  • changed user caching to realname cache for a smaller memory footprint (thanks Dantman)
  • moved debug handling into class and uses $wgRequest, can expand later for 1.18+ (thanks Dantman)
  • license change to BSD, cc is not recommended for software (says them) (thanks Dantman)
  • fixed author link (backported to 0.1, thanks Dantman)

issues:

  • It may be that this extension is slow on RecentChanges and History pages. If so, I have a solution, but I'd rather not introduce more code if I don't have to. If you experience noticable slowdowns on these pages please let me know at olivier dot beaton at gmail dot com

0.1 (2011-09-17)[edit]

initial tested pages:

  • Special:ListUsers
  • old and new Special:RecentChanges
  • Special:Search of the User: space
  • History of page
  • Revisions list of page
  • Revision view of page
  • Revision Compare
  • Page header + html title (limited)
  • Should integrate into any page where user links are found

issues:

  • Always destructive of User: text, new config in future release?
  • improve bare detection on users with spaces or underscores in names (article titles and html title)
