We are pleased to announce that Foswiki 2.1.5 Beta 2 is ready for testing! Beta 1 was only out for a day and we discovered a compatibility issue with the NatSkin while writing this blog entry. It's been fixed, and Beta 2 is ready.

Highlights of this release

  • Contains 43 fixes relative to 2.1.4, 5 of which are enhancements.
  • Corrects a major issue that prevented Foswiki from being hosted on a Windows server
  • Corrects an issue where Excel is unable to open a Foswiki page that required authentication.
  • Corrects an issue where some formfields would reset to default when special characters are in the selection.
  • Corrects some display / layout issues in tables, and the NatEdit window.

The bridge plugin
Building a plugin and application to record and practice bridge hands

23 Nov 2017 | Bram van Oosterhout | 1 | Development, Extensions

I learned to play bridge about a year ago. To help the practicing of my bidding and playing I have written a plugin and a wiki application. This post talks about the decisions I made along the way. I hope it will help others to create and publish applications.

The Foswiki project is very pleased to announce availability of Foswiki 2.1.4.

Everybody is urged to upgrade as this one comes with 31 fixes and also addresses a couple of security related fixes. We thank the many Foswiki users who have taken the time to report issues in our Tasks tracker, and in many cases also suggest fixes. People are welcome to fork Foswiki on Github and contribute fixes using pull requests. We are grateful to everyone who's contributions have made this release possible.

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.

Foswiki 2.1.3 Beta 2 Ready for Testing
Come & Get It While it's Hot!

26 Jan 2017 | GeorgeClark | 3 | Development |

It's been about 9 months since our last release, so we're ready for a new one. Mostly it's been a quiet year, as Foswiki 2.1.2 has been running very reliably.

So what happened to Beta 1? We installed it on Foswiki.org on Christmas Eve, and then went to work rebuilding our Foswiki Blog, so we could properly announce the new release. The old WordPress site had died, and it was time we used our own code. The Blog is now running on Foswiki, and with the NatSkin, shows nicely what's possible with Foswiki. You too can have an nice modern look to your Foswiki site. Now that the blog is running, and we fixed a few things discovered while implementing the Blog, we are ready for Beta 2.

It's been running on Foswiki.org since January 23rd.

Help Wanted!: We need help testing this new release, and we need help translating this release.

Highlights of this release

  • Contains 96 fixes relative to 2.1.0 (42 of which are enhancements)
  • New release of JQuery
  • Fixes several performance and minor security issues.
