I've tested TWiki 4.2.0 beta2. Updating from 4.1.2 I opened the TWikiUpgradeGuide.html, but my test-twiki runs in a VMware without internet connection.

Firefox, Konqueror and other browsers will 'hang' a while before showing this static HTML page. There are RSS, CSS and a favicon which will be loaded from twiki.org.

After unpacking the .tar.gz all files are also available in the sub directories.

Is it possible to remove these internet links and replace them by local pathes?

I manually changed eg. the TWikiUpgradeGuide.html the following way:

I've seen such internet links also in INSTALL.html and others. Please decide, if this is more useful for users behind firewalls.

These docs are generated by the build script from real TWiki topics. It seems some of this junk gets included now.

We may simply have to filter some more stuff off in the build script.

I will take this one

I gave the fix_local_links a good makeover.

I decided that removing images was the right thing to do.

And the header - instead of trying to fix it - I simply reduced it to a bare minimum. These 4 files that are created in the TWiki root are supposed to work being opened at file level in a browser and should not depend on anything. And it is silly to put jpegs in the root just to show a lightbulb. The docs work fine without these small graphics.

To the user this is visible as a resolution to the reported problem so it goes in release note - so Waiting for release.

Cleaned "WaitingFor" field.
