*What is it*
Zwiki is a Zope product for building wikis - a special kind of website
that's easy for anyone to edit.
See http://zwiki.org for more.
Bugfixes, new japanese translation, chinese translation updates, new
See release notes below.
*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 <http://zwiki.org/BugDay.> and #zwiki if you can.
In the documentation department I am doing a little work on
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."/
See http://zwiki.org/ZwikiRoadmap2005 for more.
*Edits on zopewiki.org have been light; small ongoing improvements from
a small number of people.
Someone has started a http://zopewiki.org/PageTemplateStyleGuide .
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

Zwiki 0.40.0 2005/04/01
Bugfixes, new japanese translation, chinese translation updates,
new search option.
This fixes a high-profile known issue in 0.39, #1062. If you
didn't already find the issue page and workaround, upgrade to this
version to fix it.
* add a "thorough" non-catalog search to search form, commented
out (for spam hunting)
* fix the keys attribute error when creating pages in plone (#1062)
* deleting a top-level page redirects to the front page again; new
upUrl method (#917, Martijn Pieters, SM)
* no bogus property change. Some very aggressive search engines
(spiders) seem to be following form action="xxxx" references in
pages as well as the usual href links. As a result probes by
such greedy theives can cause unexpected changes to wiki web
pages. One such example recently has been the triggering of the
Change button on the Issue pages. The script
changeIssueProperties should be more careful not to record any
change if the Change action is triggered with no actually
changes. (Bill Page)
General - i18n
* new japanese translation (Masaya Kato, Manabu Terada, Yoshiki
Shibukawa, Takayuki Shimizukawa, Junya Ogino, Takanori Suzuki)
* chinese translation updates (T.C. Chou)
* updated all po files from latest pot
General - skins
* the site_logo folder property didn't work in plone
