          •  28 Feb 2010 23:48

            Release Notes: This release fixes major security issues. All users of moin 1.9.x (x < 2) are advised to upgrade as soon as possible. If you use moin 1.8.7, you already have those security fixes. If you use some old 1.8.x release, either upgrade to 1.8.7 or 1.9.2. This release also fixes some normal bugs. New features include pagination for the revision history viewer, pygments upgraded to 1.2.2 (some fixes and some new lexers), and dynamic sizing of the text editor height to avoid double scrollbars.

            I've been using MoinMoin for about 3 months now, i've build it to be used as an information webserver for the helpdesk where i worked. So far it's doing a wonderfull job, and it increased the close on first call rate. The only think i thought missed, would be an addon so that all pages can be modified, but the modification don't take effect until approved by an admin. Other than that... amazing

            MoinMoin is pretty cool
            I use a lot of Wikis and I rate MoinMoin as one of the best. There are also a rapidly increasing number (with the huge apache wiki farm moving to MM from usemod).

            The only minor irritations IMHO are (1) that when you log on you are given a random USERID, as well as your password, which you have to remember for logging on (2) the revert is a bit fiddly (3) the standard help pages which overwrite with upgrades free have a pretty stodgy layout and contain errors (like first wiki was 25 March 1995 but is listed as 1994 etc.)

            Excellent Wikki!
            If you not know wikkis, give MoinMoin a try. You will
            be surprised at how powerful it is.

            I give MoinMoin a 10.
