Wiki upgrades

The holiday season is upon us and so a new release with shiny new features is not good enough. In the holiday spirit of giving, you get two for one, only today and only at our place. That's right, Santa is in town and you were all very good boys and girls.

Since our good friends at SourceForge have decided to grant us access to newer servers, we can finally offer you the enhanced experience that is MediaWiki 1.13. Up until now, we were working with a very old release of MediaWiki that was released about two years ago. The new version has a lot of cool new features that we haven't even began to explore.... read more

Subversion joy

Two peanuts walk into a bar, one was a salted, the other moved NSIS source code repository from CVS to SVN. What does this mean to the peanuts? Nothing. What does this mean to us? FASTER! It also has some cool features that the peanuts would love to discuss with you.

TortoiseSVN can be used to checkout the new source code.

CVS is still available but will not be further updated. All latest development will be found in the SVN repository.

Site search

Web searches on the NSIS Wiki are now done by Google instead of MediaWiki. Hopefully, this would generate better and faster results. As a bonus, it searches the documentation as well, instead of just the Wiki content.

Please report any problems. Suggestions welcome.
