I've just released pmwiki-2.0.beta6, which primarily restores the
$WikiWordCount functionality that existed in PmWiki v1.  It basically
works the same as before--i.e., setting

    $WikiWordCount['SomeWikiWord'] = 2;

tells PmWiki that 'SomeWikiWord' should only be treated as a link the 
first two times it is encountered in a page.  The count can be set
to any number, including zero (which says to never link the corresponding
wikiword).  One can use $WikiWordCountMax to set a global count for
all wikiwords.

I've also added some more comments to the sample-config.php file
to demonstrates this and other customizations that can be performed.

Beyond that, this release simply incorporates a few more minor bugfixes
reported to PITS (http://www.pmwiki.org/PITS) and other places.  The
ToDo list is getting smaller and so we're continuing to close on an
official 2.0 release.

Many users of pmwiki.org may be interested in the AccessKeysSkin that I
created a couple of days ago.  This extension enables shortcut keys of
the form ALT+h for page history, ALT+e for editing a page, and ALT+s for
saving a page.  (Use CTRL instead of ALT on Macintosh browsers.)  I've
found these shortcuts to be incredibly useful, and other skin creators may
wish to incorporate them as well.  To activate the shortcut keys when
you're visiting pmwiki.org, see 

Comments and questions welcome on pmwiki-users or PITS, as always.
