TWIKI.NET has been working quite some time in making the Certified TWiki distribution ready for download. We thank the Community for agreeing to allow us to post our distribution during the FreetownReleaseMeeting2008x01x21
discussions, and look forward to supporting additional development work by Community members to enhance the open source. We also hope the open source Community and TWiki end users everywhere find our contributions to the project useful.

Congrats on releasing! having made the 4.2.0 installers I have some idea of the amount of work developing and testing can be.

OS X installer on OS X 10.5.3 does not properly set paths, user, etc. TWiki is unusable after installer exits. Installer assumes it works properly so lacks documentation that is easily found so you can correct the errors. Bottom Line: more work needs to be done to make this an 'easy install'. To me it seems as painful as ever.

I removed the downloads to the installers Sven provided. They were never open-sourced and the contributor left the project, thus it is not recommended to use outdated and unmaintained installers. We are looking for a contributor who can maintain open source installers.
