Having just made some positive comments in my last couple of blog posts, I must also, sadly, make some negative ones.
The capability of the configure script to import plugins is I think a great advance - a great shame I can't use it. My ISP has a certain set structure to its direcotries and my TWiki installationis therefore undera "TWiki" sirectry alongside the "cgi-bin". The configure scriptseems to think the subdiredtories of TWiki are at the same level as cgi-bin, so it copies the installer scripts into the directory above TWiki & then can't find them when it tries to run them!
Today I tried to upgrade to TWiki 4.2.3. It's been a disaster. I'm writing this as I roll back To my eariler version.
Errors in even the EditTablePlugin- I've no idea why, but my main "moan" is about using TinyMCE. I think it's a great idea for novice users & it works well with new topics, sich as this posting, (although tonight even that went wrong & it mangled my signature line by half converting it to I don't know what translation), but it's not good with old topics with complex structures - such as the ones I've created for my ISO 9000 & accounting systems. As an old fogey, I'd just rather it wasn't the default.
It's just finished my copying & I'm back to where I was 7 hours ago.
Upgrading is still a major issue with TWiki.
