The upgrade package contains all the changed files since 4.1.0 except Main.WebPreferences, Sandbox.WebHome, and Sandbox.WebPreferences because an upgrader you will probably not want these 3 files overwritten.

    • Change in the use of Subversion. Both DEVELOP and TWikiRelease04x00 branches are deactivated. Instead we now use ONE branch called MAIN for all development of both next release and developement of all Plugins.
    • For patch releases containing only the most urgent bugfixes are checked into a Patch release branch. The current one is Patch04x00. This branch is only used in rare cases and only for bugs fixes related to core code or the default plugins. See PatchReleaseMaintenanceSVN.
    • See SubversionReadme for up to date information about TWiki and Subversion
    • See RenameTWiki4BranchToMAIN for instructions for developers how to switch your current SVN checkout to the new branch. (one command does it).

WikiWords can include accented Roman characters, or use other alphabets such as Cyrillic, with explicit linking for languages where upper case doesn't apply (e.g. Japanese); TWiki pages can use virtually any character set supported by the user's browser. Testers are very welcome!

  • 05 Feb 2002
    • I've posted some HighResolutionLogos of our new TWiki logos and artwork. They've been graciously donated to the TWiki community by 2 Design. We designed them to replace the infringing use of the "Twiki" character mascot, which was a concern for us. Feel free to use them on your own site!

    • TWiki.org is back after a two week outage.
    • SourceForge, where TWiki.org is hosted was compromised on 08 Oct 2001. More then 30 open source projects go affected and most content at TWiki.org was deleted. We tried to restore as quickly as possible, but we had to rely on SourceForge support to provide the backup and restore the file permissions. The whole process took until today.
    • Please start contributing where you left off. Dig in your brain to remember what you wanted to post but could not. I got lots of e-mail from many of you in the past two weeks and simply cannot keep up with replying all in a timely manner. Please post your suggestions in the Codev and Plugins web as before, and ask support questions in the Support web.
    • The core team is working on a backup solution. Also, we plan to move away from SourceForge in the near future because this free service does not provide a secure environment; is too time consuming for the core team; and too disruptive to the TWiki community. Until then, stay tuned.

    • http://twiki.org/ is finally functionning, the intermittent "404 File Not Found" problem is fixed after some intervention at SourceForge. However there is still a pending problem that RCS diff does sometimes not work, depending on which web server you get on load balancing.

  • 27 Nov 2000
    • New TWiki.Support web, see Support.
      The TWiki.Support web is for people who have a technical question or any question about the TWiki deployment. This support web is for TWiki users by TWiki users. We developers should keep an eye on this web, but we do not necessarily need to answer questions. Nevertheless I would appreciate if you monitor this web by subscribing in WebNotify. The goal is to help out users when needed, but also to recognize where documentation and FAQs need to improve.
      Let me know if you have suggestions how to improve this new web, or simply start editing!
  • 23 Nov 2000
  • 17 Nov 2000
    • The new TWiki production version 01 Dec 2000 is ready and can be downloaded at the usual places. The official announcement will follow as soon as the new http://twiki.org/ domain is working reliably.
    • Our own domain name http://twiki.org/ is now halfway working. There is an intermittent "404 File Not Found" error when accessing the domain. A support request has been filed with SourceForge, #108276.
  • 10 Nov 2000
    • We will soon have our own domain name http://twiki.org/ . Hosting is still with SourceForge, we will just point twiki.org to twiki.sourceforge.net.
    • The production version of TWiki is ready to be released. No new features will be implemented, but please report any irregularities you might find in the docs or operation of the latest Beta. I will wait with the production release called 01 Dec 2000 until the twiki.org domain name is working.
    • Check out the December issue of the Web Techniques magazine, a magazine for Internet professionals. This issue is about collaboration, and thanks to AlWilliams' initiative I was able to write a feature article about collaboration called Corporate Collaboration with TWiki. Thanks Al! The issue is already sent to some subscribers and we already have a good response with lots of new downloads. -- PeterThoeny - 10 Nov 2000
