Release of Foswiki version 1.0.9, 17 Jan 2010
On behalf of the entire Foswiki community I can proudly announce the
release of the Foswiki patch release 1.0.9
Foswiki 1.0.9 is available for download at
* Foswiki web site: http://foswiki.org/Download
Foswiki 1.0.9 was built 17 Jan 2010. It is a patch release with more
than 320 bug fixes relative to 1.0.0 and many small enhancements. This
release fixes many bugs in the Wysiwyg editor, bugs related to more
advanced wiki applications and bugs in the Plugin API. It contains
several bug fixes and enhancements related to security and spam fighting.
It is highly recommended to upgrade your Foswiki to 1.0.9.
The regular version (Foswiki-1.0.9...) is the full version with all
files. The upgrade version (Foswiki-upgrade-1.0.9...) 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 1.0.9
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 1.0.8 first.
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 check-ins is over 6000 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. A special
thank you to those that tested the two release candidates. Remember that
you can upgrade also the release candidates using the upgrade package.
You should also both when you download and install Foswiki and regularly
visit http://foswiki.org/Support/KnownIssuesOfFoswiki01x00 where we will
list the more annoying bugs that have been found and most often you will
find an immediate solution that you can apply.
We will be many developers that are ready to help you with the
installation of (or upgrade to) Foswiki on the IRC channel #foswiki on
the freenode.org network.
The special installer and virtual machine versions of Foswiki will be
updated to 1.0.9 version within the next days. Keep an eye on the
download page if you use one of these versions.
On behalf of the Foswiki Association and the entire Foswiki Community:
Enjoy the Foswiki 1.0.9
