Zwiki news this month
We have been quiet but not idle. Bill Page and Martijn Pieters contributed fixes, T.C. Chou updated the chinese translations and Masaya Kato and a team of fellow translators contributed a japanese translation. Zettai.net made a donation, again, in support of Zwiki development and hosting. Thank you!

Bug reporting rate has been low and steady; bug closing rate has been low. The next Zwiki Bug Day is.. today! april 1st being the first friday of the month. I wasn't ready but it's going on anyway as scheduled, help at http://zwiki.org/BugDay and #zwiki if you can.

In the documentation department I am doing a little work on http://zwiki.org/NewAdministratorsGuide each day.

Discussion on the list, UserDiscussion page and irc channel has been light. We've had a few incidents of wiki spam this month, both intentional and otherwise. I switched zwiki.org to mail out all edits, to make this more visible; we list subscribers are adapting to the increased level of traffic and have discussed how to batch related edits into fewer mails.

This month I resolved to focus on QA for 2005:

"Alright.. this may be difficult, but (deep breath): I resolve not to work on new Zwiki features in 2005. I may well accept them from others, but I won't do them myself. This is to focus (my) energy on refactoring, cleanup, polish, docs, and fixing "broken windows". More:
  • in case that was unclear, this is not Zwiki winding down; it's a quality push for 1.0. Feature work from others is welcome as ever.
  • tasks that are funded in some way will almost always jump to the head of the queue and become priority no. 1, as before."

Zopewiki news
Edits on zopewiki.org have been light; small ongoing improvements from a small number of people.
Someone has started a http://zopewiki.org/PageTemplateStyleGuide .

Server news
The zwiki.org/zopewiki.org server basically ran all month without exceeding the 200M memory quota or restarting and performance has been reasonable. Those wikis currently have 2164 and 464 pages respectively.

About the Zwiki project
Zwiki was started in 1999 by Simon Michael and now receives improvements from many contributors. It is released under the GNU GPL. A new version is released on the first of the month.

ÂÂÂ Summary

ÂÂÂ Bugfixes, new japanese translation, chinese translation updates,
ÂÂÂ new search option.

ÂÂÂ Upgrade notes

ÂÂÂ This fixes a high-profile known issue in 0.39, #1062. If you
ÂÂÂ didn't already find the issue page and workaround, upgrade to this
ÂÂÂ version to fix it.
ÂÂÂ Changes

ÂÂÂÂÂ Browsing

ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ * add a "thorough" non-catalog search to search form, commented
ÂÂÂ Â out (for spam hunting)

ÂÂÂÂÂ Editing

ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ * fix the keys attribute error when creating pages in plone (#1062)

ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ * deleting a top-level page redirects to the front page again; new
ÂÂÂ Â upUrl method (#917, Martijn Pieters, SM)

ÂÂÂÂÂ Issue tracking

ÂÂÂÂÂÂÂ * no bogus property change. Some very aggressive search engines
ÂÂÂ Â (spiders) seem to be following form action="" references in
ÂÂÂ Â pages as well as the usual href links. As a result probes by
ÂÂÂ Â such greedy theives can cause unexpected changes to wiki web
ÂÂÂ Â pages. One such example recently has been the triggering of the
  Change button on the Issue pages. The script
ÂÂÂ Â changeIssueProperties should be more careful not to record any
ÂÂÂ Â change if the Change action is triggered with no actually
ÂÂÂ Â changes. (Bill Page)
