Hi, because of the support from Wikimedia CH to openZIM, the Kiwix project goes forward faster and is able to propose a well working free software solution to access Wikipedia offline. For the first time, now it's possible to enjoy the full Wikipedias offline in our three main languages: German, French and Italian.
Get the last ZIM files containing all main namespace articles, categories and thumbnails here : * http://tmp.kiwix.org/zim/0.9/wikipedia_de_all_10_2010_beta1.zim * http://tmp.kiwix.org/zim/0.9/wikipedia_fr_all_07_2010_beta2.zim * http://tmp.kiwix.org/zim/0.9/wikipedia_it_all_03_2010_alpha2.zim The Kiwix software itself is also localized like a custom DVD/USB launcher and Windows installer. You can download it at Sourceforge : http://sourceforge.net/projects/kiwix/files/kiwix-0.9-alpha7-win.zip/download Kiwix is easy to install on Ubuntu and, in general, on GNU/Linux, for further instructions, please, have a look on the following Website: http://www.kiwix.org There is still no version for MacOS, but we are working on that. For people wanting an all-in-one solution, including a pre-indexed ZIM file which is easily copyable to an USB Key or DVD: * http://tmp.kiwix.org/portable/kiwix-0.9alpha7+wikipedia_de_all_10_2010_beta1.zip * http://tmp.kiwix.org/portable/kiwix-0.9alpha7+wikipedia_fr_all_07_2010_beta2.zip * http://tmp.kiwix.org/portable/kiwix-0.9alpha7+wikipedia_it_all_03_2010_alpha2.zip These URLs may change with new releases, in this case, please, check the following urls: * http://tmp.kiwix.org/zim/ * http://tmp.kiwix.org/portable/ Enjoy it !
