Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware: Celebrating eight years of continuous development


This month marks the 8-year anniversary of the release of (what is now called) Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. Since the initial release in October 2002, Tiki has grown from a wiki solution into a full-featured, web-based, content management solution.

To date, more than 200 people have contributed to the Tiki code-base, with hundreds more to other parts of the project (documentation, support, etc) making Tiki one of the largest open source projects in the world(http://www.ohloh.net/p/tikiwiki/factoids/). With new code commits averaging every two hours, Tiki is in a continuous development cycle and its "wiki way" development process means that the community is very dynamic and agile.

Tiki logos, through the years.


Gatherings of Tiki Community members take place across the globe. These "TikiFests" are a chance for community members to plan, discuss, and code Tiki features (and socialize!). More than 50 events have occurred, with many more planned in the upcoming months.

Recent partnerships with Kaltura and BigBlueButton for collaborative videos and web conferencing, respectively, ensure that Tiki continues to move forward. The upcoming Tiki 6 release introduces a host of new features and enhancements.

Happy Birthday Tiki!
