[Mediawiki-l] TableEdit 0.4 released

Changes in TableEdit 0.4 are relatively minor but useful:
* changed INSERT statements to use null instead of '' for  
autoincrement fields.  This should fix some compatibility problems  
with some mySQL installations
* changed TableEdit.php to respect nowiki.  Now  
<nowiki><newTableEdit>list of headings</newTableEdit></nowiki>  does  
not try to insert a table between the nowiki tags, which should make  
internal documentation much easier.

No schema changes this time.

Thanks to Dave Sigafoos for help with bug finding.

TableEdit is still marked as experimental, but it's getting to the  
point where I'm going to try it in a beta testing environment for my  
own wikis.  But since I'm a biologist, not a software engineer, I'm  
probably using the testing phases incorrectly anyway!

I've also been working on a maintenance script to allow updating wiki  
pages based on changes in TableEdit's external wikibox_db from the  
shell, but it's not ready yet.
