We are invited to join the wiki related booth at the FOSDEM 2018 together with TikiWiki, XWiki and DokuWiki. This is a great opportunity to meet people working in this area and chat about wikis in general as well as compare the different Open Source engines out there. I am particularly looking forward to meet the guys from the WikiFest 2010 & 2011 that took place in Berlin. Really long time - no see.

While the FOSDEM itself takes place Saturday & Sunday, we are planning to have a coming together Friday night at Jean-Marc's airbnb appartment.

For more details have a look at:

Foswiki advocacy video at TPC 2017
My first ever attempt to make a speech in English and it's all about Foswiki.

25 Sep 2017 | VadimBelman | Event | , ,

I tried to fit both Foswiki advocacy and invitation for developers to join Foswiki team into 5 minutes of a lightning talk. Not very successful though. The plan is to repeat next year as a registered speaker.

Foswiki 2.1.3 ready to download
Recommended release for security fixes

13 Feb 2017 | GeorgeClark | Development, Release, Security

Mostly it's been a quiet year 2016, as Foswiki 2.1.2 has been running very reliably. But while the project has been quiet, much work has been going on preparing for the next release. And here it is, tada: 2.1.3

In fact, everybody is urged to upgrade as this one comes with a few important fixes, not only cleaning up the code, improving performance, but also addressing a couple of security bugs. We have been working together with Intel who performed dynamic site scans to detect common cross-site scripting attacks as well as static scans of the perl and javascript code base itself. A big “Thank You” from the Foswiki Community to Intel who continue to run security audits on a regular base.

We also thank the many Foswiki users who have taken the time to report issues in our Tasks web, and in many cases also suggest fixes. We also welcome users to fork Foswiki on Github and contribute fixes using pull requests. We are grateful to everyone who's contributions have made this release possible.
