I just wanted to let people know that the English Wikipedia Version 0.8 is
now available for download.  It contains around 47,300 articles taken from
all subject areas in the English Wikipedia, with selection based on
importance and quality.  It was used to test out automated RevisionID
selection, with software based on WikiTrust.

Free downloads of Version 0.8 are available at
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Version_0.8/downloads
Available are: raw ZIM files, or versions bundled with Kiwix or Okawix
readers.  The Okawix collection recently became available for iPhone/iPad
and Android.  A BitTorrent release is also under way - please help out
with seeding if you can.

Apologies for not posting this sooner.
