Hi all, first of all thanks for your continued interest in VQWiki, news have been quite few lately here, but I wanted to assure everyone that we're still committed to the project.
During the Devoxx '09 conference in Antwerpen, which is always a big source of inspiration, I've had the chance to speak to other project members, Filippo Diotalevi and Gian Carlo Pace and we've sketched a plan to revive the VQWiki project both supporting our existing users and keeping our personal interests alive experimenting with new technologies, but always following the spirit of the original VQWiki, that is to have a wiki web application which is small, fast and easy to deploy. This plan means closing the 2.x development line with the addition of one last plugin which will allow exporting the wiki content in WikiCreole format which will let anyone move to a different wiki if desired and hopefully to our new VQWiki releases.
At the same time we'll drop also the inactive spring-based 3.x line which really never took off and move it to a separate branch, just to start from scratch a 4.x line which will use OSGi as the basis for a more modular and modern plugin system. OSGi has been one of the hottest topic of the last Devoxx and having on board also a committer from Apache Felix as Filippo will let us exploit all the features of this component-based architecture. Starting from scratch means also we are able to change license, so we've decided to move to the Apache License Version 2.0, in the hope to foster a wider adoption of the new VQWiki version 4.
I hope you'll follow us in this journey... thanks! Marcello
