Happy Birthday Tiki!

Nine years ago this month marks the initial release of the Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware project. Known then as TikiWiki, the initial release (version 0.9) included a mere fraction of the features available today. Since 2002, the Tiki Community has become one of the largest open-source teams in the world and is in the top 2% of all projects on Ohloh.

In July 2003, Tiki was awarded SourceForge.net Project of the Month... less than one year after the project began! See http://tiki.org/displa182 for a time line of Tiki releases, from 0.9 to the present.
