Foswiki delivers results.

In just 10 weeks, the Foswiki project has re-built the project infrastructure, fixed an additional 100 bugs over and beyond those we fixed in the TWiki source repository before the fork, moved to a new web application architecture (FSA) and undertaken a detailed security audit, fixing at their roots a large number of potential exploits.

Windows installer, Debian packages including Extensions, OSX installer, Virtual machine.

Additionally, we already have the following easy installers:

    Windows Installer – I’ve built an installer using Apache 2.2 and Strawberry Perl, making it possible to install Perl dependencies.
    OSX Leopard installer – Matthias Wientapper has built an pkg
    Debian and Ubuntu linux – I’ve ported my TWiki package builder to Foswiki, and now have a live updated (nightly) Debian repository containing Foswiki v1.0.0 and 105 of the 109 Extensions uploaded to http://foswiki.org/Extensions
    Virtual machine image – Eugen Mayer has built a virtual machine, with detailed instructions for use with Virtual Box and VMWare.

So given the over 1800 commits in 10 weeks, a release, and much much more, It seems to me that Foswiki is a success..

  1. Out of interest, will there be a Debian package to help transition from TWiki to Foswiki?
    Or are there a set of instructions some where?
    I have Debian systems that are running TWiki 4.1.2 packages as well as systems running TWiki 4.2.3 packages.

  2. I’d just like to say “Thanks!”. After about a week of fighting TWiki to get the latest version installed, I ran across fosiki.com while looking for a more current Ubuntu package. I saw you were involved in both TWiki and Foswiki and said “Ok, so what is Foswiki all about?” (could we get a couple more wiki software packages to choose from, please?!?) After reading the split timeline, it was obvious why TWiki does not have a Debian / Ubuntu package manager / creator any more.

    So … of to try Foswiki … configure apt sources … do a get … and … bam … no mess, no fuss … I’m up and running!

    Thank you.
