No time for foolery! Alas. Zwiki 0.52 has been released at http://
Zwiki is a free, powerful, easy to use and manage wiki engine for Zope 2; it
works with standard Zope, CMF or Plone sites. Here is the news.


        Restructured Text fixed & now the default markup, standard skin
    templates refactored and used for plone, zwiki/plone skin
    switching always available, wiki navigation links and issuebrowser
    (re-)enabled, better styles, zope 2.7 support fixed, slow freeform
    link rendering fixed, translation updates including a new Thai
    translation, much code cleanup.

    Upgrade notes

        A lot of skins code has changed. Your old wikis should keep
    working as before except:

    - if you have a customized ``recentchanges`` or ``searchwiki``
          template you'll need to delete it or replace with the latest and

    - full/simple/minimal links in old custom skin templates will no
      longer work.

    - http://zwiki.org/HowToUseTheStandardSkinInPlone is now built in,
          if you made a "Zwiki" CMF skin you can delete it.
