The identical .zip and .tgz packages can be used on all platforms; an installation guide is included in the package; supplemental documentation contain platform specific instructions.

TWiki is a flexible, powerful, and easy to use enterprise collaboration platform. It is a Structured Wiki which can be used to run a project development space, a document management system, a knowledge base, or any other groupware tool, on an intranet or on the internet.

Release 4.0 is the first major release in a year, adding simplicity in installation, integrated security features, and much more.

Major New Features

  • WYSIWYG editor (beta)
  • Revamped PatternSkin with a modern look and lots of customization options
  • Much simpler install and configuration
  • Integrated session support
  • Webserver-independent login/logout
  • Security sandbox blocks all possible routes for remote command execution on the server
  • New editing model with conflict resolution allows freer collaboration, without fear of overwriting other people's changes
  • Multilingual UI: Chinese, Danish, Dutch, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, Polish, Swedish
  • E-mail confirmations for registration to prevent spamming
  • Hierarchical sub-webs (beta)

Patch Log of 4.0.1

These are the bugs and changesets that I have merged from DevelopBranch into the 4.0.1 release.

Can someone help me here please.
My local svn doesn't seem to want to grok this.

Doing a svn up at my "..../twiki/branches/" just returns

svn: '.' is not a working copy

-- AntonAylward - 07 Feb 2006

I only noticed TWiki 4.0.1 because I happened to stop by the site today. I am on twiki-announce@listsPLEASENOSPAM.sourceforge.net, but didn't see an announcement there. Are all releases announced on that list, or only very major ones?

-- BretMartin - 13 Feb 2006

We did not announce 4.0.1 on that list because:

  • it is a minor release
  • it happended quickly after 4.0.0
  • the installation guide and upgrade guide mention to check the KnownIssuesOfTWiki04x00x00 where 4.0.1 is mentioned

-- PeterThoeny - 13 Feb 2006

Twiki on debian - the older release has recently moved from testing to unstable - what is the timeframe for deployment of a deb release via aptitude? Thanks

-- BrentEgeland - 22 Feb 2006

Shouldn't there be a TWikiSystemRequirements section (and/or link)?

-- WillNorris - 27 Feb 2006

Done.
