Release of Foswiki version 1.0.8, 29 Nov 2009
On behalf of the entire Foswiki community I can proudly announce the
release of the Foswiki patch release 1.0.8
Foswiki 1.0.8 is available for download at
* Foswiki web site: http://foswiki.org/Download
Foswiki 1.0.8 was built 29 Nov 2009. It is a patch release with more
than 280 bug fixes relative to 1.0.0 and some enhancements. This release
fixes a short list of quite annoying old bugs incl a bug that prevented
efficient use of MailerContrib for producing newsletters. The Wysiwyg
editor has been upgraded with the latest Tiny MCE editor release 3.2.7.
It is highly recommended to upgrade your Foswiki to 1.0.8.
The regular version (Foswiki-1.0.8...) is the full version with all
files. The upgrade version (Foswiki-upgrade-1.0.8...) contains the full
file package except the files that you will typical have tailored in
your installation and do not want overwritten when you upgrade. The
upgrade package will upgrade any version from 1.0.0 or later to 1.0.8
simply by copying all the files in the upgrade package on top of the
existing 1.0.X. The exact steps are described on the download page.
If you are at 1.0.0 there is no need to upgrade to 1.0.4 through 1.0.7
Also note that many plugins and other extensions are being released or
updated every week. Follow the Extensions News at where important news
about extensions releases are announced.
The number of subversion code checkins is over 5600 now and still more
developers join the project.
As release manager on the project I want to say a sincere thank you to
all the many that have worked hard on this release happen.

visit http://foswiki.org/Support/KnownIssuesOfFoswiki01x00 where we will
list the more annoying bugs that have been found and most often you will

We will be many developers that are ready to help you with the

updated to 1.0.8 version within the next days. Keep an eye on the
download page if you use one of these versions.
On behalf of the the Foswiki Association and the entire Foswiki Community:
