ewiki+ R1.02b finished

After a longer development cycle, the incremental ewiki update release R1.02b was completed. ErfurtWiki/ewiki+ provides a user-friendly and non-intrusive Wiki hypertext management system with hundreds of plugable extension modules in PHP. It can be integrated into existing layouts and comes with extensive documentation.

The newly introduced *.meta data files and a unique console configuration tool (X/dialog based) allow far easier plugin (200+) management and configuration. The core script and the plugins can still be merged into an easy to handle "MonsterWiki" include file.... read more

but its advantages will probably yield another bunch of emulation plugins
for foreign Wikis markup - because custom markup can be added much easier

Some everlasting bugs have been fixed (invalid html for nested lists),
and new built-in markup plugins finally provide stable <pre>formatted
text paragraphs, and far better inline-<html> area support. It is easy
to write new 'block' plugins, because documentation for the new plugin
interfaces is already available.... read more
