[Pmwiki-users] PmWiki 1.0.10 released

Hmm, Perhaps my 'upgrade' was incorrect.  I coped the 0.10 pmwiki.php,
wikilib and scripts directory *over* my working 0.6 installation and
set the flag as described in my local config.  However I can't see any
evidence of the caching?

Should some meta-tags be in the resultant html? Perhaps my
upgrade-path was incorrect? If I modify the .tmpl for the wiki I'm
using, the changes *do* show up, which suggests that caching is not
working for me?

Any Ideas?
