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!

BigBlueButton and Multilingual Improvements Emerge from TikiFest Ottawa

At the most recent TikiFest in Ottawa, Canada, several Tiki Community members met to socialize and contribute their talents to the future of Tiki Wiki CMS Groupware. For four days (August 15 - 18), the attendees (including several remote participants) discussed, planned, and coded many features and enhancements planned for Tiki 6.

The TikiFest ended with a wine-and-cheese social at the Code Factory in Ottawa, hosted by Citadel Rock, Blindside Networks, Pondstone Communications, and AvanTech.net, all of whom are active participants in the Tiki and BigBlueButton communities.

The cornerstone of the TikiFest was to improve the integration between Tiki and BigBlueButton that was first introduced in Tiki 5. Additionally, a full day of the event was reserved for various internationalization (i18n) topics, including:
* Establishing a collaborative multilingual glossary
* Creating a translation server
* Making it easier for the Tiki Community to contribute translations

See http://tiki.org/TikiFestBigBlueButton to review all items from this event (including pictures and video from the event).

Several TikiFests are planned for the upcoming months in Montréal, New York City, and Berlin. See the Tiki Community calendar at http://tiki.org for details.
